With A Massive Twist...

A taster image by Paul Ridgon from Assassin, the comic strip I've written for the fourth issue of The Psychedelic Journal Of Time Travel, has been released:

Editor Owen Watts goes on to describe the strip as "a partially coloured sci-fi hitman story WITH A MASSIVE TWIST..."

I'm happy with that.

The Psychedelic Journal Of Time Travel issue four is available here.

Getting Back On The Horse

I moved up from London and starting again seemed daunting. I had no contacts and no idea where to begin. The move itself, the unpacking and then the search for a 'proper' job took up all my time and in a way it was easier not to get started.

So for the first time since the move Up North, I have taken some steps to try and get my acting career back on track. I renewed my Spotlight subscription, updated my CV, rang my agent, emailed some casting directors and got myself an audition. I wouldn't normally post about auditions, because auditions aren't jobs, but it feels like a significant step that I should acknowledge.

P.S. This has absolutely nothing to do with horses.

Animal Magnetism

The fourth video I wrote for Bad Teeth was a guide to being a Babe Magnet. It was surprisingly easy to find bad videos of people claiming to have all the answers, whilst looking like idiots. Not including the 'Once I Was A Babe Magnet' singer obviously.

Rory Barker presented this one. It's still a little different to what I wrote, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

I'm going to post some script snippets that didn't quite make the cut for each of the videos.

A Man Told Me To Beware Of 33

A man told me to beware of 33.
He said, "It was not an easy time for me"
But I'll get through
even though I've got no miracles to show you

Today is my thirty-third birthday. So far, it's been alright.

Here is the third of the Bad Teeth videos that I wrote. Unboxing is a similar phenomenon to Hauls and one I was equally ignorant of before I was asked to write about it. Individuals film themselves opening boxes of recent purchases.

I enjoyed writing this and selecting clips to include in it. Elements that didn't make the final cut include references to Pandora's box, McDonald's Happy Meals and from the late Jar Jar.

To date over 11,000 people have watched it. One commented to describe it as "asinine commentary over other people's videos than adding a poorly contrived sketch at the end", while another said "I really didn't see a point in this video, the only part I liked was dropping the phone, sorry :/", but on the plus side it made somebody else "LMAO".

Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining

Following the award ceremonies held by the High Sheriff of London and the Chief Constable of Herefordshire, we were more than a little surprised to be invited to do it all again.

We were nominated for the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) Police Public Bravery Awards 2014 and were both presented with certificates and silver medals. We are pictured here with Chief Constable Sir Hugh Orde on the left, Assistant Chief Constable Michelle Dunne and Chief Constable Andy Bliss on the right. For some reason, we both look a little like we were being held at gunpoint.

For the record, we weren't.

We're pretty sure that's the end of it, but then we probably said that after the trial, after the first award ceremony, after the second...
