Spam

with one comment

Here are all of the embedded images from the last 24 hours of spam emails that got past my email’s filter. Granted, this is not particularly interesting right now, but if you make a note and come back and look at this post in ten years time, it might be.

Is the word

without comments

A car just drove past, the stereo was playing Grease by Frankie Valli, and just as it went past me, it hit the brassy part right at the end just before the backing singers sing the “is the word.. is the word… is the word…” fade out. And that fade out happened as the car drove away from me. It was quite beautiful.

Paper

without comments

I’ve been playing with the Paper app on the iPad the last couple of days. First time I’ve spent some time with it. Quite nice actually. It’s one of those apps with in-app purchases, which I find annoying: just make the app a price and give me everything in one go.

It’s missing some things, like being able to change brush size would be nice; a high resolution export would be appreciated, cos as it is, I will never use it for anything that I may want to eventually print; and the overall hipster Moleskine-y conceit grates a touch. They’re just fucking notebooks. Get over yourselves. On the whole, though, it’s quite a pleasant app.

One thing this app does very nicely is make my handwriting look good. Por ejemplo:

Here’s some doodlin’:

Drawing pints while I drink them

without comments

A series of ten drawings. I drew the first one of the series (below) when I was waiting for a friend, and after that, decided to carry on whenever I had a chance in English pubs while I was back there.

Love forty

with one comment

Back in Lincoln at me mum’s house. It’s not the house I grew up in, so there’s no actual childhood memories here, but being in Lincoln on a sunny summer Sunday with the curtains closed and the men’s singles final soon to be on telly, it does feel quite like being a teenager again. All I need really is some orange squash (Asda own brand, not the dear stuff) and Mike from next door to play tennis with (against a wall) afterwards. You be Becker and I’ll be Lendl.
