Liebster Blog Award

I checked my phone before only to be told I'd been nominated for a blog award, my first thought being  "Wait, I have a blog? Spam" but apparently not.

I was of course nominated by the corking Charlotte of Eat My Book (not mine, hers)
Thanks, Charlotte

  • Link back to the person who nominated you
  • Answer the ten questions given to you by the nominator
  • Nominate ten other bloggers for the award who have less than two hundred followers
  • Create ten questions for your nominees to answer
  • Let the nominees know you have nominated them by going to their blog and telling them

Here are the questions I got :

1 How many trees live in your garden? If you don't have a garden. how many trees live in your heart?
There aren't any trees in my garden, but one hangs into it and one is deeply rooted into the foundations of my house. That's probably something of concern really.

2 If you had to do one hobby for the rest of your life, what would you want it to be?
Oh God, I'm not sure. I really really really love watching/making Chadwardenn and Smoke weed videos but I also love playing Sonic Adventure all day so I'm not sure. Probably a toss up between those 2.

3. Do you know what a hobby horse is?
Yes. It's like a horse on a stick, but not the kind you eat.

4.What do you enjoy most about being nominated for awards?
It has got to be that message you get when you think you've won an award but you've actually just being nominated for an award which you aren't going to win but you take part anyway because you don't have anything else going and it seems like there could be a mass amount of lulz to be had.

5. This is an open question. Tell the world what it needs to know
The human heart is split into 4 sections, the right and left atrium and ventricle. The 2 sides of the heart could operate independently from each other, with both halves being in different locations in the body.
It's a quirk of evolution that the heart has even been joined together by the septum.

6. How many books do you own?
Too many to count with my fingers and toes. Like, we're talking a lot

7. What's your favouritest book?
Great Expectations.
I feel like I should have something to add to this but I don't really unless you want a plot synopsis.

If you do, please for God's sake go read the book.
8.How long do you spend on a post on average?
It can depend. This post has taken days, and I'm still not done.

9.Has an animal ever tried to murder you?
Well there was this one time I was eating some chips at the seaside and this seagull started sizing itself up to me so I was all like u wot m8 and it still didnt go so I unleashed the tatsumaki senpukyaku but it flew away and i wasted an H.C. bar.
What am I supposed to be talking about?

10. Whats the best thing you ever did, ever?
Aside from answering these questions and that piss I had the other day (omg the relief) is probably get into video editing. I really enjoy it and I've met some goodish people in the interwebz community. Either that or go to hospital, that was fun (I'm serious)

Now I'm supposed to nominate 10 more people to answer my questions, which I should ask 10 off, but here's the thing; I don't read blogs. Perhaps I should try find some people (I will) but for now I'm just going to wrap it up as atleast a blog post, even if I can't win.

People calling me out on my taste in music

I was on the internet the other day in surfing on some forums when I saw this thread called "Music Thread NO TECHNO ALLOWED!!! >:("

The idea was that you posted 10 songs that you like, but you couldn't post techno music which meant I couldn't post Industrial metal (a ball of wibbly wobbly Techno Rocky stuff)  so i posted 10 songs that I liked. 

And everyone sent me PMs laughing at me! (Here's the forum if you're intersted

Now just for the record my taste in music is anywhere on the spectrum of Rock (So thats anywhere from rolling stones down to about As I lay dying or Turmion Kaitilot) There are also cool little sub genres too, some more known like punk and some more obscure, like industrial metal. Im also abit fond of some techno type music (but not wubstep) 

So later that day people are talking to me on skype and my phone rings (sales call) and after Id messed about with the girl on the other end abit people start laughing at my ringtone (from where it starts to about 1:35) They told me I should listen to something more "hardcore like Slipknot, or Skrillex (Blasphemy!) I'm sad :'( I'm not a hipster by any stretch of the imagination, I just don't like what's on radio 1 right now. If I want to live in the past and listen to songs from 1995 I say I deserve that right >:(

Also sorry about the whole 2 week hiatus thing. I've been writing this post for a day now

What I did Today

Ive just finished uploading my latest youtube video...for the 4th time.

The intention was to upload a lets play of Chicken Run for the Dreamcast.

Id recorded it edited the commentary in and started uploading it.
It turned out that the file was 5 GB in size (that's big) and I couldn't be bothered to upload something so large.
So I compressed it to around 1GB (that's smaller) and uploaded that, which still took about 2 hours.

The video was then removed as the game contained clips of the film, and this makes sense.
So I edited out the copyright material, started uploading the video.

So I compress the video again and now here we are. I hope it's ok. I also made the thumbnail myself which I think is pretty cool.
If you'd like to watch the video (I'll love you forever) you can see it here. It's a long one, sorry.

Fun times ahead for me

Ah christ.

So yesterday the house phone was ringing. I answered it (as you do). Itt was my Auntie Claire. She'd like to stay from the 17th-19th. Mum takes the phone and says that's fine.
So a few Hours later the phone rings again. Uncle Clifford. He'd like to stay from 16th-23rd. Mum thinks about it and says "Yeah, that's fine." End of conversation.

Meanwhile I'm sat in the corner trying to wrap my head round this and trying to see if I can try and work out some kind of sleeping plan.

But then where everyone was going to sleep kind of dropped in relevance when I realised something.

5 Geordies.
In one house.
Most likely drunk.

I can't do it.
I mean, It isn't personal, they're all very pleasant people. But they're Geordies. That's, like, a BIG thing. Imagine how incomprehensible and loud people are when drunk and treble that.

Eck. I think one of those days is exam results day (double Eck) so maybe I can make a day of that and be out for a few hours  

Ah Christ.

Rules of Texting (Ketp'cha waiting, huh?)

I think its been a few weeks or something. I've been lazy and away.
I also have a cold which is making this  a bit hard to write but I'll press on.

SO. My "rules of texting". These are a simple bunch of rules I follow in order to make texting fast and efficient. I used to dwell on what I would write for long periods of time, typing out several potential drafts in order to prevent my self from sounding like an idiot.

1.Commit to what you've typed 
Once I've written a text, I send it. No going back on what I've put. This way I'm honest (the best policy!) and saves a lot of thinking time, however it also means I could put something stupid or offensive. That's where No.2 comes in.

2.Add a smiley if you are being friendly 
Now, really this is a bit stupid. However, I just feel my messages are a little more welcoming if I throw in a :) or :3. For example:
"You're going to pay for that."
"You're going to pay for that ;)"
I think meanings and intentions are hard enough to convey through talking on the internet or through SMS anyway, so a little emoticon I think just shows that I don't mean any harm. Many a time I've regret putting something without a smiley in order to show that what I put was light-hearted.

3. 1 Word answer=Back off 
If someone sends me a 1 word answer (K, Ok, thanks) that means the conversation is over. Either leave it there if its an SMS or wrap it up if its an IM. I wouldn't want to harass anyone and make them hate me because I'm some highly dependent clingy koala type creature. Also saves me money on texting.

Right I know it's been a shorrt one but my head is all fuzzy, so really you should double or even triple what I've written here in order to see how much effort I've put in.
