Hello, wow it has been a wee bit since I’ve updated the website…
Yeah, I’m a bit of a lazy cunt when it comes to this kinda stuff. I’ve been working really hard on a number of projects over the last few months, which I’m sure most people reading this will be aware of. I’m going to individually go through all completed, on-going and future projects since my last update in order to cover anything I might have not covered.
The Not So Happy Hour, unfortunately, had to end. Too many guests would leave me hanging last minute and honestly I lost a lot of respect for people I had a deep admiration for on quite a regular basis. It’s as they say, don’t meet your heroes. To all of the guests however that did come on and indulge my ramblings, thank you very much.
Special thanks to Micheal my first guests for being such a cool guy and just having a great conversation with me, Dr. Rick Strass for giving me his very valuable time and letting me ask him questions about his work. Same goes to Dr. Gerardo Sandoval who skyped me from the Indonesian Mountains! Cathy S. Tooley gave me a fantastic insight into the American school system and her book ‘The Education System is Broken.’ Also lastly, Max Sherwood and Nat O’Neill from the Edinburgh University Psychedelic Society. I haven’t seen much of the guys since our talk because I’ve been strapped for cash a lot of the times they host their events. I hope one day I can speak with them again.
Tales From The Bathtub
I will continue Tales From the Bathtub when I feel its a good time but currently its a bit of an overused niche. It was one of my best series and I’m proud of it but don’t expect any more regular instalments. It will now be more of a throwback series than an ongoing one. This isn’t permanent however, I have visions of a day when Tales From the Bathtub is produced with studio equipment, having a full team of dedicated workers at its disposal. With special guest appearances such as Donald Trump and Snoop Dogg…
Dead. Fucking dead.
It was a good idea but honestly, it didn’t get views. If I had a larger following I wouldn’t mind doing a series that didn’t attract more attention but in complete honesty, one of my goals on YouTube will always be to grow my channel and make something out of it. It was quite depressing to see TFTB getting up to 300 views and then watch the view count drop down to twenty because the title of the videos just couldn’t be compelling enough.
The diss track stuff is so much fun but I’m totally worn out. Me and Pigeon Master are gonna wait until exam times are done so all the guys involved can join in on the one last bit of content we’re thinking of making to kind of end off the series. That doesn’t mean that the whole idea of doing parody songs, in general, is off the table but just that the fake feud between Jack, Marcel and I will come to a dramatic conclusion.
Also I kinda technically got recognised by a ‘fan’ yesterday while I was buying some buckfast. He recognised me because of the recent diss track stuff, which was the inspiration for the title of this post. That’s never happened to me before and I was pretty stunned, to be honest. If you don’t know me personally but you’re a fan of my work and you see me in the streets, be sure to come up and say hello. I love hearing peoples opinions on the stuff I do and what I can improve on.
Yes, I know. It’s taking fucking ages.
The anthology I’m currently a part of was supposed to be published a while back. Unfortunately, the woman running the project left earlier this year due to unexpected changes in her own work. I appreciate how far she took us and the link to her Facebook page can be found in the footnotes which you should go and like. Since we had to move all the files and so on over to other hosts, progress has slowed to a crawl. Either way, I’ll be plugging it for a while on the YouTube channel so you should hopefully know about it as soon as its out.
So I’ve decided to give stand up comedy a whirl. More as a hobby than any kind of job, I’m constantly trying to find new ways to get out of my comfort zone and try new things. It’ll be a great way to gain some new skills and perhaps even help me understand comedy a bit better and what really makes people laugh. When it comes to YouTube I have to deliver things a certain way, when I record with others I get the feeling they look at me weird wondering why I said something a certain way but then when the video comes out they understand why and laugh. The same seems to be for stand up, so I can’t wait to find out what I can do on stage.
Currently, I’m not working on anything to do with voice acting, I am considering auditioning for the role of Thor in an upcoming abridged series but whether or not I get it we will have to wait and see. I’m open to doing anything that won’t take up too much of my time so if anyone out there has a project I could help with, let me know for sure!
I asked FlyingWithFeathers to do some artwork for me and he pulled through with this awesome piece. Really cool, I’ll leave the link to his twitter in the footnotes. Go show him some love.
