About

Some would say that I’m a hockey loving, curling watching, caffeine addicted, beer drinking, book devouring, music cranking, baseball throwing, bat swinging, country music listening, oar paddling, Converse wearing, motorbike obsessing, crossword doing, quiver nocking, fire hydrant collecting, film watching, TV show following, art creating, trailer cutting Canuck living in the Great White North.

But I would just classify that as being me. 

I work primarily in art and photography, dabbling lately in film editing. This blog is for my own personal work, rants & thoughts, while my primary work is located elsewhere in the ether. If you were looking to 'learn' a little more about me, you’ve hit the right place. If you were just looking for the work I do, well then, you might want to head here instead:

► Have you ever broken your own heart? ➔ I’m still using it so it must still be intact. 
► Do you usually spend Valentine’s Day alone? ➔ I spend it with people I usually spend it with. Because it’s just another day. And those people I hang out with are the folks that wouldn’t need a special day just for them to know I enjoy their company.

any videos in the making? I miss your awesome (AU) castle videos :((

Helloooo my dear grey faced anon,

Yeah, I’ve got a couple of them going at the moment. Including a few AU ones. Nothing I’m satisfied enough with to stick somewhere for public consumption. (I may need to change the storylines if I can’t find the snippet I want to use from the episodes)

Hopefully, it’s getting close (it’d be brilliant if I actually did this for a living… But alas, I digress…)

Although I am getting a few ideas on what I can do with the new season 7 storyline.

Thanks for asking and I’ll keep y’all posted. :)

National Day                                                  

Hong Kong’s pro-democracy protests swelled for a sixth day as student leaders renewed an ultimatum for Leung Chun-ying to resign after jeering the city’s top official at a ceremony to mark China’s National Day.

Demonstrators poured back into the three main protest areas at 6 p.m. local time after crowds thinned this morning. With Hong Kong celebrating two days of holidays, numbers may grow beyond last nights tallies, when organizers estimated at least 100,000 people in the main protest areas and tens of thousands more at the secondary sites.

Most want to get on the board first. But Craw Daddy wanted to take the board over.
