xmas 2013

Idea for xmas 2013

I will set it straight I am totally bah humbug when it comes to Christmas for various reasons, the main one being the fact that I have not been brought up in any religion let alone a Christian one. By not brought up, I mean (and this is illegal I believe) I did not attend a single Assembly, RE lesson or meeting where my elders closed their eyes and made wishes to gods. I was even booted out of the cubs on the first day for not doing the lords prayer.
However religion is not the be all and end all to Christmas and I understand the celebration of family and friends is important to some people and it overrides all the religious claptrap.
Now not being of a religion does not mean I have no morals, I can see from one step removed a lot of the tropes in the religious dogma’s trouted out is just moral guidance of how to be good wrapped up in a fairytale.
Which leads me back to Christmas, this is suddenly turned into a capitalist arms race, find a gift , receive a gift, but these gifts are just things, is an Ipad enough, is a Tie enough, the answer is probably no, yet we struggle through November and December bankrupting ourselves for a fleeting moment of happiness and then spend the early part of the following year skint.
Who benefits, well you feel good for buying the gifts, the recipient briefly feels good, but if you are really honest, it is the shops and the banks that benefit most.
The biggest waste at Christmas though is the gifts people call stocking fillers. You know the ones, they cost £10 and they sell them in the queue at Topshop and Next. Mini shot glasses sets, Knicker hankies, table tennis bat sized fly swats, Stylophone’s FFS Stylophones no one wants a Stylophone surely!
Well the idea is to do away with these stocking fillers and the answer of how is really easy.
Charity Shops.
For Christmas 2013 I urge all Secret Santa’s, gifts for in laws and cousins who you would normally spend less than £20 on, be bought from a charity shop….and with gift aid if you can.
Who gains.
You do, you will spend less money and enjoy the shopping experience
Charities do, your money will not go to the bottom line of a big store
The recipient does, plus, if they do not want it, they can always re-donate the gift they receive.
It is after all the thought that counts.
So who is in?

Oompa loompa fight

I am no detective but this Sunday morning it was easy to piece this crime scene together. It started with dropped wkd outside the kebab shop and escalated.

I was early for a shoot yesterday so had a wander.
I like urban decay for some reason, something about imagining what was there and peeling back layers. Am secretly amazed how retro floppy discs can look.

How I invented contact lenses.

Honestly I did invent contact lenses, but it was one of those accidents that happen all the time. It started with a fist fight. Bernard and me had been arguing about our new designs for cling film. I had insisted on making it magnified in order to make food look bigger. An aesthetic which I thought was a sure fire winner, Bernard on the other hand thought I was a cock.
Bernard you see was new in town and on an "I can do no wrong" high, having just developed rubber gloves that looked like the real gloves of a glamorous lady like Joan Collins, and not like something you would wash up with.
Anyway you have probably put two and two together already, what with me mentioning magnifying cling film and a fight, but you are wrong, I did not smash Bernard's face into my cling film and then attempt to gouge him and when I let go he could miraculously see without his glasses. That did not happen. What did happen was that Bernard, wearing his stupid rubber lady hand gloves could not get the magnified cling film off the roll, he called me a cock yet again so I grabbed the roll of cling film and smashed it in his stupid bespectacled face. His classes smashed in to several pieces and his nose gushed blood all over the worktop. Bernard then retaliated by punching me in the solar plexus whilst muttering that "hitting someone in glasses is below the belt".
This got me thinking and as I crunched my knee into his testicles I had a eureka moment, poly-methyl methacrylate could be made into a small lens in the eye. Then I really beat the shit out of Bernard. Bernard is a pussy. Bernard went on to invent high heel flip flops. I won the nobel prize for chemistry. Bernard works in the R&D department at JML. Who is a cock now Bernard.

sun seagul

The wave caught me out, as it crashed onto my toes and its ice coldness crept up my leg. It had never happened before, I am normally agile on the beach, and can easily out manoeuvre a wave. I believe I believe the shock of it all contributed to me droping my i-pod. I tell you this as it was the last thing I recall before the seagull flew into my ear deafening me for life.

Police cut backs

Not complaining as the heli-chopper the cops use at night is super loud, but a stealthy airship for patrols has got to be a wind up.

Cleaning out my trash

I found this, it is equally disturbing and strange on many levels.
Nazis, clearly no good, but on a donkey with a wooden gun?


Having thought about this a bit, I guess it is the equivalent of scallies trying to look hard on a bike that is too small for them.

The boy who lost his laugh

I remember this as a kid, the soundtrack is ace, you don't need to understand German to understand the weirdness. "The Baron" bought the kids laughter (probably for a million marks)
and this is the moment Timm got it back, by witnessing some classic slapstick. Heart-warming.
This program always reminds me of Kevin Keegan too.

April and the Ass-kicking Bambi Assassins Part 3 Excerpt

Something extra was needed, the ass kicking bambi assassins had been defeated again.
They had tried to stage a revolution overtaking the enchanted forest by uniting with the red squirrel army.
April was livid as a new coalition between the grey squirrels and the badgers had taken the north field.

It split the Bambi assassins down the middle, especially as the badgers had been instrumental in the destruction
of the horsefly army when they attempted to infiltrate the bees, dressed as hornets.
The geopolitics of the forest would strain anybody and April and the ass kicking bambi assassins looked to be
going their separate ways. However the forest can sometimes deliver a miracle and this happened again this morning,
a new animal waded into battle, the mighty boar of boaccus, the wildest most feral animal killer in the entire animal world had arrived in the enchanted forest and would agree to fight cheek by jowl with april and the ass kicking bambi assassins and the red squirrel army in return for full mushroom rights. Slaughter of the badgers and the grey squirrels was imminent.
The north field would be reclaimed, and then the boar of boaccus would be slaughtered as the mushrooms belong to April.
