Webcam self-portraits

March 2, 2010

About six months ago I bought myself a little Samsung netbook and it has a webcam built in. I’ve never had a webcam before. So every time I was on the netbook I’d take some snaps of myself. And here they are. Not all very flattering.

The music is the theme from Midnight Cowboy.


Some new videos

Here are some new videos. Not all of them are entirely safe for work.


Smoking video

Green World video

October 5, 2008

A video I made for YouTube. Lots of pics that I turned greenish in Photoshop. The music is by Baby Bird, from Fatherhood, which is my favourite album. Ever. In the world.

I’m not quite sure what the point of the video is, but I like it.


Bus Video

June 30, 2008

Here’s a nice video of a journey on the 43 bus (perhaps most famous for the man who was stabbed to death by in an argument with a bloke who was throwing chips at his girlfriend). Music by Saint Etienne.

Talking of buses, today I have come to the depressing conclusion that the noble British bus queue is dead. No-one queues for buses anymore. Instead of an orderly line with a clear beginning and end, there is now just a general melee in which the person who arrived at the bus stop 30 seconds ago may well board the bus before the person who arrived ten minutes before. Given that I am normally the person who has been waiting ten minutes, I resent this.

If I ever become Mayor of London (not after Boris. Then it’s Alan Sugar’s turn) then I will force people to queue for the bus. I will also forbid people from playing music out loud on their mobiles and will ban anyone under the age of 18 from getting on a bus at all. Let them walk. It will solve the problem of childhood obesity and make the buses a nicer environment for everyone else. Two birds with one stone. Never let it be said that I’m a killjoy.
