Anyone trying to email me using my gmail account: I don’t know where you found that address, but I never use it and almost never log in, so it’s not a good way to reach me. email@example.com remaims my only active personal email address.

Sometimes I make the mistake of thinking that my life is, sometimes, in its own little way, difficult. Then I listen to pretty much anyone else (including other middle class white men, althought that’s obviously a factor) and am consistently blown away by how much pain people suffer.

Put a new set of strings on my guitar (built in 2011!) and it sounds goood. Now I just have to learn to play it, finally.
Just bought my one-way flight out of Iceland. In just under a month I say goodbye to this beautiful island for the near future. I shall be writing more soon about my experiences here, and what I’m getting up to next!
Looking through archives, I realise the real reason I stopped doing animation was after coming up with “The Spaghetti Entanglement”, I realised that nothing I ever made would be worthy of that name.
Steaming is rapidly becoming my favourite way of cooking things.
