South Ealing Floods

By | Blog | No Comments

Today I saw the most impressive storm I have ever seen in London. There was some bloody loud thunder and a ton of lightning. With the load cloud it mad it all the more dramatic. – Before it started you could literally feel the build-up of tension. The rain was monsoon like at some points. It resulted in the street flooding. I went to cross the road and stepped off our garden path into water round my ankles.

I love storms by the way. They are wickedly ace in that ooh exciting kinda way!

That was a bit of an out burst… So I had another one of those days where I was feeling low and annoyed. These days happen from time to time. Its my prerogative and those of you who know me well know that i aint always a moody dork.

 

Saying that a friend told me something quite interesting the other week which made me think. This girl was actually someone i went on a date with and the date was a bit pants. She told me why the date went wrong. I came across as being a bit of a depressing angry at life sad bastard type of person. Which while being a bit of a shock, also made alot of sense. My situation has been pretty testing over the last 6/8 months and as a result I have become quite moody. Working constantly from home and not getting out enough also contributes to this whole whoha. It’s hard times and I’m doing my best to pull myself out of this hole I is in!

 

Did a temp job yesterday as a receptionist. It was very very dull indeed but it’s money and it was nice to be working in an office with a bunch of people. I spent most of the day reading and finished a book.

 

I now also have 3 weeks of work in Manchester booked for September. Its LED screen work doing the family game show favourite: “The Price is Right” Should be rather amusing. – And no I wont be on telly I’ll be behind the scenes.

 

In the mean time I am applying for other work left right and centre. So Those of you who work for companies that may have any media based work let me know. Web/Video is my bag so ask around and lemme know!

Ooooooh fudge socks!!!!

I am now realising that I am a complete f**k up!

 

I am also wondering why my general perception on people is going down. What happened to courtesy and people being nice, kind and considerate. I know I’m living in the big bad world now but why are there so many selfish people out there?

GRRRRRRRRRR!!!!

We partied till the wee hours! – Actually the party was a bit lame. A ton of people never turned up. Of the people that did, one of them I detest! He’s a bit of a t****r and always takes things too far. There was a fight between him and someone who shall remain nameless but – I was not happy that he turned up nor that pissed said person off so much to induce a fight! The party was ok but after that it went a**e over tit really!

The dressing up as ladies was rather amusing but the bra was too much for me and i was the first to break and change into man clothes again.

 

Sunday was Ace!. My sis Sandra and her 2 oldest kids came down from Glasgow so we had some nice family time – Photos will follow soon! I am still hungover!!

 

Finally made the Thunder trailer live today click HERE to watch it.

I’ve not been posting much recently cause I’ve jus been, well ummmm dunno – lazy? So What’s been happenin in the world of Irishmark? Well – I’ve been getting more broke by the second and if i did not have such gratious parents I’d be screwed!!!!

 

This weekend was a good one. Tom asked me if I wanted to help out at Hyde Park Calling. It was fuggin ace! I was the cable basher which basically involved me running around on stage after one of the cameramen making sure he didn’t get tangled in his own cable. This meant being onstage with the various acts! The best part of it was The Zutons and The Who! Was truly a wicked weekend although stupidly busy!!

Jump around..

Today I re-learnt the art of dirt jumping. Ok so I aint no jumping god or anything but I did find a nice lil bank jump that had the perfect transition. Was a perfect tabletop but i ended up over shooting the whole thing by about 6 feet by the end of my session. Still i can crossup fully and flatten the bike too! – YAY ME!

Never say never?

Never ever again am i gonna do a mates rates job. I dont mind the work but where i’ve been having other people dictate to me the price? This aint gonna happen. From now on, unless you are a very very good friend My Mates rates will be standard rates less 15%.

 

Why the rant? Its 6am, I have yet again not been to bed. BUT The UK Version of the Thunder DVD is finished!

 

NAKED BIKE PROTEST Anyone fancy doing this. I reckon this would be a great place to meet mountain biking naked hotties – Who’s with me, do i hear an AMEN? lol

Summer finally got here!

By | Blog | No Comments

Woooooo – I went for a long ride up the river and it was grand! No it was wicked!!! Rode about 10 miles in total, got some sun, and was able to chill out. Although my fitness is not what it used to be I still managed to push myself hard at points and the jump spirit is returning.

One thing i love about summer is the summer clothing the women of London wear – its fantastic!

Its very late and I’m watching “The Peoples Court” – basically judge Judy but in the UK. Its Terrible!! I have never seen such bad TV. I find it hard to fathom the idea that I am stuck for work and there is s**te like this being broadcast. The judge had to read her own summary of the case! Surely as a judge she should be able to do this with out a tele-prompter! And why is it that all the people on this show look like in-breds?

Procrastination

By | Blog | No Comments

Looks like summer is coming! Today the rain sorta stopped and although I am again stuck in doors due to my on-going procrastination It’s still nice to see some half decent weather!!

I’m going to sort all my s**t out over the next few weeks. Generate some more work and really get things cooking. As I’ve been suggesting, less talking more doing. If I want something I gotta go get it and all the s**t that stands in my way can go and f*ck off as far as I’m concerned.
