Oh that my Ode was for You

15 Feb

Recently I’ve begun taking part in a series of writing challenges, Daily Prompts & Weekly Tasks. Unsurprisingly yesterday’s prompt was focused on love coming in the form of an encouragement to write an ode to someone or something you love. [Bonus points for poetry!]

Of course I had a few options open to me; I could write about my dear wife, my precious son, or even my darling cat. But I felt it most important to be honest and admit that the greatest love in my life is usually me. Left unattended my heart will always deviate back to itself.

Personalised Moleskine… this looks great!

11 Feb

Other than the odd spoken word video created by the Dai Wool/Andy Toovey dream team I don’t often post links to things around the web. If you really want to find something you’ll find it without my help.

BUT! I was searching for images of moleskines last week and I found this site that sells bespoke moleskines, embossed by Linotype machines. It looks fantastic!

I don’t get any commission…but if you want to get me one as a gift I wouldn’t say no.

Striking a [Christmas] Chord

12 Nov

They say a cord of three strands is the strongest…so here’s a 3 pronged attack on why this is the best Christmas video you’ll get to use this year:

wisemen from the east - Dai Woolridge1) Dai Woolridge, as ever, brings some absolutely epic rhyme and rhythm to a masterfully constructed retelling of the Christmas Story. [one question though Dai…why aren’t you wearing a crimbo jumper and scarf combo???]

2) And Toovey is the best thing to happen to video post production since Adobe’s After Effects. The visuals are tremendous, simple as. Shot beautifully, edited creatively, illustrated incredibly. 2V Design for an Oscar. [But does he know what a Gsus chord looks like?]

3) Christmas is all about Christ…and so is this video. While all the trimmings are there, shepherds, angels, mangers etc. The video takes you to the heart of the story, king of kings come to save from sin.

I think that’s enough reasons for you to ill your stockings with ‘The Christmas C[h]ord.’ But really the only way you’ll be as convinced as me is to watch it yourself. Da iawn boys.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

15 Feb

If the title of the film isn’t enough, the synopsis should be:

President Lincoln’s mother is killed by a supernatural creature, which fuels his passion to crush vampires and their slave-owning helpers.

I’ve been salivating over the prospect of this one for a while now…and they’ve only gone and released a trailer:

I can’t imagine a better premise for a film.

Movie Minimalism

17 Oct

On Friday I posted a picture of “Weapons of Mass Distraction.” I also followed the link to the creators flickr page and came across his collection of minimalsit move posters. Essentially the story of the poster told in one, minimalist image. Here’s my favourite (warning…contains spoiler!):

Ironic (time wasting)

14 Oct

Found this while I was idly browsing another blog. Deliciously ironic.
