I’ve enjoyed watching the TV series “Nashville” which played on British TV recently on More4. What do you know, they’re all stars outside of the show, one of the actors came from the Midlands!
I was scanning the airwaves during the EDL protests this week and heard quite a lot of chatter from cabbies on the subject, this 30 second video is great!
The events in Boston this week have been truly awful and raise interesting questions about the use of globally accessible online radio scanners. This promises to be an interesting post.
Today there has been even more critisim of the Work Capability Assessment, a mechanisim for denying disability and chronic illnesses. What is the WCA?
A very important local resource for bloggers got a major update this weekend. I wanted to conratulate Mark and the rest of the team for their achievments.
Anyone who is creative may like to watch the latest BBC Horizon programme looking at how insight works, aired just this week on BBC Two.
The snow may be a distant memory now, it left us photographers with many a picture and a lot of editing to do! This is why camera phones haven’t killed Jessops!
I’m still having trouble with normal everyday sounds that feel very loud to me. What is happening to my hearing and when is a hearing aid not an amplifier?
My eldest nephew sang the British National Anthem on local radio today, a real proud moment. I recorded the show and uploaded the section where he makes Jo Malin almost cry!
I’m so ready to depart. Having that nervous fit of energy, where you pack and repack, and unpack and pack again!
Holy crap! Space photos from ESA in 3D on flickr! Must be a Flickr Friday moment :)
Upon making my routine chicken mayo sandwhich today I discovered a Biro embedded in my loaf of bread! However Tesco were extremely good at making up for it!
Drought has been officialy declared in some parts of the country this week. It’s a good time to get in to the habit of saving water, the West Midands could be next.
Many of my closest friends and family will already know that I’m now happily engaged and it being Valentines Day, it seems like the best day to mark it on my blog!
A very brave man is about to fall to Earth from the edge of space. Having seen this on the news today, I just had to investigate further, although I wouldn’t make that quantum leap myself.
With welfare reform on the political agenda this week, it might be easy to skim over just how cruel the government are being to the chronically ill. I’m going to be very frank about this and it should be a good read.
Desert Island Discs was 70 yesterday, it’s charming that even if we can take thousands of songs with us on holiday these days in our pockets, that we still feel the want to highlight those special ones.
I’m taking seriously the action needed to reduce my energy costs. There’s really only one area that can now be tweaked in my home and that is lighting. Let’s look to the new toy in town, LED!
If a picture says a thousands words, this is how I’d choose to honor Martin Luther King …
There’s a great reason for having not updated a lot recently. Christmas preparation, not only that but I’m looking forward to a very positive 2012!
Protests, are a lot like buses. You don’t get one for months and three come along at once. This weekend Birmingham saw the unwelcome arrival of the English Defence League.
I was walking through Walsall one day and thought, wouldn’t it be great to showcase some photos from local people, in those empty shop windows? Find out how we smartened up town.
Digital Switchover is here, finally. What do we do now to get our channels back? Anyone remember the retune for Channel 5? Well not like that.
I got the impression the BBC were planning to cease broadcasting BBC4, but digging deeper it might be a good thing, here’s why.
It struck me today how to explain what the EDS (Excessive Daytime Sleepiness) part of Narcolepsy is like. It’s like a computer program that reboots and starts over every 3 hours.
Following on from my previous post on my recent travel photography, I’ve a few live music shots to share with you too!
Recently I’ve been inspired to photograph some landscapes and being as I’ve traveled a bit this year, I should really blog a few photos! From Shropshire on the Welsh border to Tennessee in the south of North America.
It’s fair to say that I’ve had a lot on my mind these past 12 months and somethings have been held in a processing queue.
Recently I’ve been spurred on to take to the saddle again by a GPS tracking application on my smart phone. Creating an artistic map of where I’ve cycled, focused on Walsall Town Centre.
I finally got a black and white diagnosis of my “mystery illness” yesterday. Indeed I do have Narcolepsy. Look surprised everyone!
So I’ve been away for a few months, two of those were spent in Middle Tennessee in America and it wasn’t a typical holiday, oh no, there’s more to this. It’s a fairytale!
With rising energy prices back in the picture recently, I’ve been keen to reduce the amounts of watts that I use in my home, my target? Lighting!
Oh boy is this exciting! Alex Nackman returns this month with an awesome new album!
If my twenties are anything to go by the next decade promises to be further material for a gripping novel when I’m, 50 full of twists!
The past couple of months have seen a few new arrivals onto my super fast servers. Say hello to a journalist and two awesome singer songwriters!
Today mega Hoar Frost touched most if not all trees in Walsall. So I headed down to the Arboretum with Ian Egner to capture the scenes with our cameras.
Walsall has Freeview HD! Coverage is not yet official, recpetion is hit and miss, but line up with Lichfield with a HD capable box and you could get 1080i pictures!
This week I had the definitive test for Narcolepsy called the Multiple Sleep Latency Test and had confirmation of my sleep scores from way back in July.
Some interesting experiences this week, which included meditation. The results may lay the groundwork for control of my sleep attacks, which may turn out to be Narcolepsy. It seems I can be entraced easily :)
With the amount of photos online these days it’s often hard to have a wow moment. However this night picture made with light painting techniques really stood out amoungst the crowd.
