First there was the pirate special.

And thenthe animal cosplay special.

But now, ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Alien Special. All 25 seconds of it.


(If you can’t see the video, you’ll need to view it on my blog!)

Yup. My whole life was a build-up to those 25 seconds of fame. A six-month training regime. Three months of method acting. Private tuition with Andy Serkis.

You saw the still photo, but as it turned out… someone had captured some damn video footage of the pale, gangly, hideous creature that is… me.

You have to admit that the grunting guttural sounds are pretty awesome though. If you must know, it’s the scene from Men In Black…

Anyway… other than the awesome video, this Monday (if you are reading this on my blog) you get an overhauled side bar with some new favourite choices entries thrown in! Then the Index of Topics has been updated, which is where you want to go for ‘interesting’ or ‘deep and meaningful’ entries. I also updated the Travel Stories section with entries from the Faroe Islands.

And today’s ‘52 Weeks‘ is out later in the afternoon (UK time), whenever my partner in crime turns up… (if you haven’t subscribed yet, you should! With Autumn here, I can assure you there will be some beautiful photos.)
