  • The Eye of the Duck

    “A duck is one of the most beautiful animals. If you study a duck, you’ll see certain things: the bill is a certain texture and a certain length; the head is a certain shape; the texture of the bill is very smooth and it has quite precise detail and reminds you somewhat of the legs…

  • Der regisseur und der schauspieler

    I have a film recommendation for you all, it’s a fantastic documentary by the brilliant German director Werner Herzog called My Best Fiend (Mein liebster Feind – Klaus Kinski in Herzog’s native tongue). In the film Herzog revisits, both physically and in memory, the places where he made films with one of his great muses, Klaus…

    The Art of… Roadlining

    When I posted the ‘Art of… Woodturning’ video the other day I think there was a slight disconnect with what I wrote and what I meant. Not because I don’t think that the woodturner at work is mesmerising, because I definitely do; but more that what he is doing in the video is something that…

  • The Art of… Woodturning

    I’m sure I’m not alone in really enjoying seeing a person just being good at something. Being really good at something. It might be a hobby, it’s quite often what they do for a living; but just through either a love of the subject or years of experience and practice they’ve almost turned something into…

  • Meathaus mail out

  • Jacket Upgrade

    I bought a jacket a while ago and I really like it. It’s a Fjällräven Greenland jacket in Olive green, it really is right up my street. Here is a picture of it: Nice right? I always had a nagging thought it was missing something though, I didn’t know what, but I knew there was…

  • Saturday morning = The Chart Show

    If you’re anything like me – born in the UK at the end of the 70s/start of the 80s and a music nerd – then you more than likely spend a lot of Saturday mornings watching The Chart Show. For those who don’t know the show, it was a music video show; a sort of…

  • I’ll be back with more soon…

    This is going to be my blog. It’ll be a place I’ll use to share things I’ve found both in the digital and tangible world; I might just be sharing thoughts or personal projects I’m working on. I’ve not had a chance to write much as yet so I’ll just leave you to enjoy a…
