  2. Woo! Thank YOU Craig :-)

    By the way, have you shrunk? Just that your ten-years-ago self looks a couple of pixels taller to me, but maybe it’s just the hair vs. hat…

  3. Thanks Katrin, thanks Longbird.

    Yeh, the old me is one pixel taller. It’s the waxed-up bits of hair vs. the pulled-down-low Montreal Expos cap that does that.

    Happy birthday!!

  5. Realizing you have been doing this for 10yrs makes me realize just how much time (and enjoyment) I spend looking at your stuff. I remember the marmite and ketchup jars!

    I had my 10yr anniversary at work last year and got taken out for a very lovely lunch and given some very nice tokens to go and spend in Liberty, so I hope you take yourself out somewhere nice and buy yourself a nice present to celebrate!

  8. Congratulations, quite an achievement. Been reading almost daily for more than 6 years and always puts a smile on my face. Here’s to another 10 years!x

  9. Congratulations, Craig. Long time reader, very occasional commenter, keep it up with the great stuff!

  10. Nice work, homeboy! Here’s to another 10, and the hope that you get as addicted to college basketball in the next few as you have to MLB in the last few.

  12. Been a great fan for 6 years now, since the tender age of 16! It’s amazing what you can find when you’re bored at work, and a friend sends you some excel quiz thing with lots of tiny drawings of famous people.
    I was pleased to find that flipflopflyin’ was a million times better than that quiz.
    You even inspired me to start my own blog, which I’m enjoying lots. So thanks Craig, my days just would be the same without this place!

  13. Why thank you, sir, it’s been a real pleasure!


    12 May 09 at 6:54 pm

  14. i check in most days, like your work very much.
    Although have wondered why it’s called flip flop…
    All the best.

    Mike: Here’s why.

  18. Congrats! yay for 10 years. this got me a little choked up…. kind of Star Trek-y… have you seen it (the new movie)?

  19. Congratulations, Craig.

    Only you and Amazon have held on to the prized Bookmarks Toolbar position on my desktop since day one.

    I think that *sniff, sniff* says something…

  20. 10 years. Fuck. I’ve been keeping up for 8 or 9 I reckon, when I first saw a really short animation of a screaming singer on your website.

    I lost my job a few months ago because of the shitting credit crunch but your blog, website, life in general I guess is something thats got me thinking about my next steps.

    I guess I want to do something interesting. That is all.

  21. Congratulations!

    The first thing I clearly remember reading was the Orhwurm re-creation of Seven Nation Army plus The Golden Path (pleeease forgive me.. Iiiii never meant to hurt yoooo… DUNN DUH DUN DUN DUN DUUHHNN DUHHNNN). I looked it up & that was posted November 03, although I reckon I was reading a few months before that.

    Also, it was your influence that led me to store my CDs in chromatic order. It's a system that visitors notice, immediately.

  22. Thanks, y’all.

    Yuko: Not seen it. Don’t really intend to unless the wife plays here “I went to see a band I didn’t like so you’ve got to come to this” card, but I doubt she’ll waste that card going to the cinema.

    Stephen: Glad to be hanging on in there!

    Chris: Blimey, is that the Golf Buddies video for “I’m Feeling Fine Now”?

    Heather: I still sing “The Golden Path” over the top of the guitars whenever “Seven Nation Army” is playing.

  23. Yep, that’s the one.

  24. is it only ten years? it was up while we were living together wasn’t it? i thought that i’d been in brighton for 10.5 years now.

    well done. i think you can say with some certainty that you’ve found your medium as an artist.

  25. Great stuff, but still I’m waiting for a Lance Armstrong minipop.

  26. I like that little conversation there.
    Congratulations and here’s to ten more years.
    Hip, hip, hurray!
