Friday 15th of January Twenty Ten. I was talking to Renners (who does Mpora) and said:

“Uh, Breaker One-Nine, this here’s the Rubber Duck You got a copy on me Pig-Pen? C’mon ”

He said, “I beg your pardon?”

I said “Uh, yeah, that’s a big 10-4 Pig-Pen, Yeah, we definitely got us the front door good buddy, Mercy sakes alive, looks like we got us a convoy”

Only the best film EVER.


Report: Most College Males Admit To Regularly Getting Stoked

Are we doing enough to warn kids about the dangers of getting stoked?

car canal

Two men and a dog crashed through a frozen canal after driving along the ice.

Andrew Nisbet and James Naismith got more than a mile before their car sank.

They and West Highland terrier “Jimmy Nisbet” escaped through a passenger window as the car filled with water.

Their antics – which included performing handbrake turns on the ice. – sparked a major rescue operation.

But last night, Nisbet told the Record: “It was just a bit of a laugh.”

He and Naismith have been charged with reckless conduct.

More from the Daily Record here.


This is a new Friday slot called “Philbert’s Phriday Photographer”, Every Friday Philbert will introduce you to the works of some of his favourite photographers, take it away Philbert:

“Big’in up your friends is super fun so I’m gonna big one up right now.
I’ll start by spelling his name in big letters…”


I went to university with Spencer and he is a bit of a dark horse to be honest.
Whilst everyone was yacking about their latest and greatest idea accompanied by mediocre pictures, he would let keep shtum and let his pictures do the talking.

They spoke very loudly indeed.

Not much has changed since he’s been shooting for a living except that now he trades money for his images instead of drinks at the student union bar.

He has created one of my all time favorite “action” images in his “Traceur” series that is in the ‘Portraits’ section of his website.

So like one of our tutors use to say…
“Even wasted time can be time well spent.” So waste some time and follow the link…..www.spencermurphy.com/

Virtual Stapler killed a few hours last night, suprisingly satisfying.

I grew up on games like this.
