If you’ve been around here for a while, you’ll know that occasionally I have to apologise for blog downtime. Sometimes (though admittedly, it’s very rare), the computer that hosts this blog… falls over. This time it was only down for about 30 minutes, but still: I feel obligated to make it up to you. So here’s a photo from 2005, just before I turned 21. My sister will probably kill me. But really, she has nothing to complain about… she’s…

First there was the pirate special. And then… the animal cosplay special. But now, ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Alien Special. All 25 seconds of it. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLKvXUHMVEw[/youtube] (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……

I just woke up to find that I may have messed up the blog’s email subscriptions. Apologies if you’ve been receiving more than the usual number of email notifications, or, in fact, none at all!

Sometimes she takes a while to get to the point, but I already knew where she was going with this one. ‘But mum, I already embarrassed myself enough with the head-in-bowl photo.’ ‘Those girls obviously loved you in that doggy outfit, Seb…

Variety is the spice of life. A phrase used all too often by parents and grandparents, normally when something doesn’t go quite right. ‘Ah well, you didn’t get the girl and you ended up with a bruised knee, eye and chin AND a rash on your ass BUT… you know, variety is the spice of life!!!’ (Old people always talk with multiple exclamations, especially in emails…) What the phrase really means is that doing things differently is the key to…

Today, Tuesday, is the first of a few limited-edition one-off ‘specials’. You know, like those episodes of Mythbusters where they go to Siberia, or borrow a bunch of high-grade military weapons. Each of these specials will focus on a particular aspect of I, Sebastian, normally featuring some kind of retarded dressing up. You see, being a roleplayer and an actor, and having a mother that is also an actor and a massive, charismatic extrovert, I often end up in some…
