So, a while back I recorded a video as part of an application to be a technology tester. Get free stuff and try it out and talk about it? Sure! Sounded good to me, hence this little video was made. Terrible camera quality (filmed on my phone) and no good lighting, and me fumbling through what I wanted to say.
Fast forward to earlier this year
And I happen to get a notification someone I knew had written a comment on the video. Honestly I hadn’t even remembered it was still up and live, I had planned on taking it down as soon as the tech reviewer gig didn’t come through. What was interesting was that it had 7500 views. Like really? Something I had made no effort to promote or share was clicking over views higher than I had ever imagined possible!
Checking back in today to use it as a sample of a tight-arse tuesday post, and it sits at just over 7900 views. Makes me think there might be a potential opportunity to do reviews for stuff that I buy from the perspective of a graphic designer.
It also gives me the idea that the ideas I have on the back burner for crazy projects might be way more popular than I had previously thought. They are all self indulgent projects of stuff I just want to try out or do, or things that amuse me, so don’t expect refined works of art and prose. 😉Read more "Tight-arse Tuesday – Monitor Review"
So there is a little music project that has been sitting in the depths of the project list for years. Decades even. It was never intended to be anything other than getting lyrics put to music and having a bit of fun. But the lyrical content and musical genre of the musicians I have been […]Read more "Looking at burning crosses"

Well, the year has started out with me clearing all my debts. Yep, all of them. Which is a great feeling, and I have switched my phone plan down so I am paying half what I was paying before each month. Leaves me a little extra to save up for things like a new fridge […]Read more "Hello 2019! Hopefully the year of MONEY!"
This has been a shit year for me. I lost one of my oldest friends this year, right on my birthday. It was almost six months ago to the day, and although I would normally be posting some stupid shit about World Dictator Day today, I just don’t have it in me. Christmas is no […]Read more "Christmas you suck."
I think at one point in our lives, we shift from siding with Batman and siding with the Joker. Why? Because at some point, the Joker starts to make more sense. On one hand you have the Batman, an insanely rich person forcing his judgement and opinion on the city. Sure, he beats up […]Read more "When the Joker starts making sense…"

Well, the ALMOST story of being a tv presenter. I had heard of a call out by the ABC for a pitch for a late night cabaret style show slotted for Friday nights to sit before RAGE. Back then, an opportunity like that seemed worth pitching for. I knew how much they were looking at […]Read more "Let me tell you a story about my past as a tv presenter"
