There’s no way out.

Oh lore.

I’m going to have to do it, there is no way around it. Absolutely no way.

Personally I find it embarrassing. I know there are a lot of people out there that do it, people you wouldn’t expect. I have been surprised to discover the kind of people that do it, it has changed my opinion of them.

I won’t say it has become higher or lower, just different. After all, we all have different ways of expressing our self and one should never judge.

I remember a long while ago the first time I found a friend had done it she became all defensive about it. I laughed and mocked at the time but I have to say that practice made perfect and she is very good at it. A little too good in fact.

Most people are actually quite rubbish at it but still shove their attempts on facebook.

I honestly don’t know if this is through bravery or pure, blind stupidity. Which is why I say my opinion of people becomes neither higher nor lower when I discover that they take photos or videos of themselves. Often in the mirror, often with the camera/phone still in shot.

These things freak me out. What the frick are they doing?
Why do I have to take part in this bizarre ritual? I hear you ask with fervour…

Well because my attempts at filmmaking (usually spent cackling at those patient enough to follow my obscure instructions) has not yet borne any fruit.

I have to reluctantly admit that this may have something to do with the fact that I have absolutely no idea what’s going on and glaze over with disinterest when someone starts talking about white balance….even the thought of it sends me drifting off…

However I must learn, or remain stagnating in the fishpond of obscurity.

So I’m going to practice, with a camera and everything. Just so that I know how to put a scene together in an order which actually makes some sort of sense. I’ve started drivelling on about scenes now, I’m boring myself.

Oh sod off and leave me to it.


  1. those argos aliens are really creepy. especially when the Mum does her weird 'Justin Beiber' thing *shivers*

  2. and I don't understand their existence; I'm creeped out and confused. Is that how they want me to feel at Christmas?
