I have a feeling.

This summer thing is just about over. Not that it ever started really.

This song reminds me of so so much. Sitting in my shop a few years ago after closing on my todd. Usually looking at catalogues and invoices and having a sinking feeling of, i dunno. Possible regret. But what ever, thats pretty deep and gay shite I'm not into. Truth is its an amazing song I'm ashamed Ive ignored it for so long. So here you are.

Fiction reveals truths that reality obscures. - Jessamyn West

I'm hopefully on the tip of something pretty substantial and exciting, an idea thats fueled me. Possibly the reason for lack of decent blogs. I do apologize.

Live out of your imagination, not your history. - Stephen Covey

Get. It. Done.


I'm a fountain of blood in the shape of a boy.

At 12 O'clock last night i was wondering around massive abandoned buildings under light of a fire torch with a few friends. Fun. Yes.


Hey Snow White, it's gonna be alright. Alright.

New Howie's catalogue. Love it. The ethos and its genuine appeal. A happy company.





Because this has to be shared, I forgot how good this was! Thanks Eva.

I've spent far to long trying to make a 'flash' website, its coming on

Do you realize if it weren't for Edison we'd be watching TV by candlelight?  - Al Boliska



As far as inspiration goes.

This video kept me up all night after watching it. Just thinking. The most inspiring thing i have ever seen. It has made me re consider everything i am currently working towards, and made me think of different paths to take to achieve my goal of a decent BMX company. Get. It. Done.

Fall seven times, stand up eight. - Japanese proverb


What a jolly entertaining day.

Get it done.

Every man dies. Not every man really lives. William Wallace.


Everyone's dictating there life through letters today.

On my results day i got up and saw how sunny it was, then proceeded on spending the rest of the day up the woods with my bike, i did this for both GCSE and A levels. Its was summer. I think my mum picked them up, or they came through the post, something like that.

I can't figure it out in my head for some reason, maybe I'm stubborn, single minded, i don't know. See. There are genuine people with career prospects, who work hard to get into university as it will lead them in the path of success and self appreciation. Others, dare i say 90%+ its just the next thing to do. Go to these coveted places, with more money than they have ever had and the least money they have ever earned, into a city they have never been, nor respect, appreciate or have interest for. To study a loosely categorized subject, to get them 'somewhere' to do 'something.' At least the night life is good. Right? No.

Shut up Ben.

This is fantastic, has to be shared.

In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure. Bill Cosby


Filled with inspiration, ideas and enthusiasm.

A long time ago i listened to a song on a mountain bike video, Since, i have searched everywhere for it. Everywhere. googled lyrics, researched soundtracks, no such joy. Occasionally it would enter my head, creating another surge of impulse searching. Never bringing joy.

Yesterday i got sent a song by a friend, completely out the blue, frankly amazed. Very pleased, after less than 24 hours its already in my iTunes top played. Thanks Eva!

So here it is. Enjoy.


A most enjoyed weekend.

Train journeys.
BBQ - good weather.
The Forest of Dean.
Chav Wagons.
Red Hills. Yes.
And of course lots of bike riding.

As well as Bella dog.

MMMMMM. Thats right.


Never thought.

I'd have anything but white walls. But i quite like my colour choice. Indian ivy apparently. What do you think? It works so well with white, very bold. Weekend away down south, can't wait!




Lots of words, here me out.
Press play on this video, then read on.

Old song, not heard that often, good though, non the less. Lost in the archives you could say.

On Monday, whilst helping out packing orders i started singing (badly) with words substituted with mumbling this song to my friend Luke. Don't know why. Or where it came from.

On Saturday i changed banks, it was a weird choice and quite nervy for some reason, never liked banks, nor understood them if I'm honest.

Now, coincidence or not, I'm unsure, but when in the Que at my new bank today, paper work for anything and everything important 'HSBC radio' came on. 'Beautiful south - Rotterdam.' Kinda made my face tingle, was a happy thaught, sublime. Good. I mean, what are the chances?

But now, I've started reading 'The Secret' after my friend Eva's enthusiasm towards it, the book talks about the law of attraction, and how you attract these things to you. i can't explain it. But it really makes you think. I would suggest going and buying it.

Good times.
Picture the scene. . . .

Trying to get these new T-shirts ordered is like banging my head against a wall. It will be done.

Happy to be introduced to this song.

Abstract art is a product of the untalented, sold by the unprincipled to the utterly bewildered. - Al Capp

Okay, i don't fully agree with this quote. Makes you think though, to what extent is 'abstract' and when does it become, painted jargon. 


We have new a resident in our apple tree. Don't know what shes called yet, any ideas?

Yesterday, on the way back form the unit, at twilight, the air seriously had a red glow, everything was like looking through a strawberry quality street wrapper, it was pretty awesome. This is a completely undited picture of the sky.

And today we had a super ace dragon fly in the conservatory.

Don't knock the weather; nine-tenths of the people couldn't start a conversation if it didn't change once in a while. - Kin Hubbard



Blow you away, pound you with drowning inspiration. Get you more stoked than a squirrel in a KP nut factory. And leaving you buzzing more than John Coffee at the end of Green Mile.
Bad puns aside.


Excellence is not a skill. It is an attitude. - Ralph Marston



I've been doing a fair amount of it, including distressing these drawers, originally they were waxed pine, now they are white and distressed. What you think? I like the old worn out look.

I had to post this up, my favourite film possibly ever, Robin Hood men in tights. If you haven't seen it before, shame on you! Very, very funny, this song is made by Blinkin's choreography (he's blind.) Have a go.

Time to go. . .

It requires wisdom to understand wisdom: the music is nothing if the audience is deaf. - Walter Lippmann



I took my little brother mountain biking for the first time yesterday.

He now looks at me in a different light, with more enthusiasm for something he didn't originally understand.

He did the 'roll down.' A wooden tower about 8/9ft tall to generate speed. After lots of tears, self doubt and disbelief aswell as violent shaking through nerves, he did it. I think  that's the first time hes done something thats genuinely scared him, and the first time he's over come it, his reaction was great. Pretty cuffed.

Anyway. 10 minutes later i peeled him off the ground, grazed up arms, sore head and groin, bike bent and in bits. 

'Can you bring me up again please Ben?'

That's what i wanted to hear.


Find a job you like and you add five days to every week. - H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Living for the weekend? 'cringe' what an awful waste.
