I haven’t podcasted in a while — I’ve been travelling, or my house has been positively humming with activity and Americans — but now, with normality returning, I’m able to do some more podcasting! So to celebrate my continued photographic excellence and sales, here’s a minute or two of a Brit bumbling his deep, burbling, heart-felt thanks for those that have bought photos… and a little more! (It’s work safe — in fact, I encourage you to play it while…

If you can’t see the audio player, you’ll have to view it on my blog. But it’s only a minute long, and not that exciting, so you can probably skip it, unless you want to hear my impression of a throat-cancer victim. If you hadn’t gathered already, I’m big and imposing, like two conjoined Pavarotti Siamese twins. I’m a fairly prolific person; I don’t do things on a small scale. When I take photos, I take a lot of photos…

Today is Floreta‘s birthday. If you don’t know Floreta — the Solitary Panda — she’s one of my many geeky online friends (actually, she’s probably even a bit dorky, and if you don’t believe me, just wait until you watch her video blog). She’s a poet and photographer, and likes to while away the hours by putting on dark, pensive make-up and pondering existential conundrums.

As I begun yesterday, but didn’t quite manage to finish, I like telling stories. Some of them are epic tales with a beginning, middle and end. Some of them span countries and years — like the American. The problem is, I tend to travel alone — I meet people while I travel, but I still…

After poking at the fairer sex yesterday, I felt it only fair that I poke fun at the hairy and muscly hunter-gatherers today. Have you ever heard of Manorexia? It’s one of those awful portmanteau phrases, like ‘manboobs’ (or moobs) where you can kind of tack ‘man’ at the beginning and turn it into something that’s altogether slightly more… sinister. ‘Manflu’ is worse than normal flu, apparently. Anything to make men sound more rugged and manly, eh? The media love…

In case you were wondering about my sometimes seemingly-obtuse blog titles, the title is always a reference to something written or said in the blog entry! Perhaps I should run a points system, for those that work it out. Today I have a lot to write about, but I don’t want to squeeze a bunch of eclectic thoughts into an entry that might not ‘gel’, and thus ruin the whole flow of the thing, so I’ll try to stick to…
