Remember that time when I decided it would be good to make a magazine, and then it took me 7 months to put together? But then when we launched it 8000 people read it and we all lost our minds through happiness? Yeah, we decided to do it again. I’ve been in Cardiff this weekend for my birthday (which was yesterday and was fantastic, thank you). If you feel like giving me a belated birthday gift then please read this, and visit the people in…Continue Reading “Télégramme Magazine – Issue Two”

It’s Wednesday now. Not a traditional time to start celebrating the weekend but since I am up off the M5 again tomorrow after work (and since I am leaving at 3pm tomorrow it hardly even counts as a full day) I am going to put my party hat* on right about now. My birthday plans have changed so many times this year I’ve almost lost count but I’m so excited about this weekend that I don’t really mind now. I wanted to go on holiday,…Continue Reading “27th Birthday, Come In. Your Time Is Up.”

I’ve fallen a bit in love with yellow this year. it started with the hoodie of dreamz a couple of months ago, a bright, buttercup yellow wonder that I couldn’t resist and now it’s, er, kinda snowballed. Last year it was fluorescent colours, I couldn’t get enough of the neon yellows and pinks that were flooding the shops. I’ve toned it down this year and gone for the bright, sunny yellow – my so called happy colour. I was in Cardiff again this weekend (Hi,…Continue Reading “Dreamz”

We are Scientists and Regina Spektor are both playing in Cambridge now that I don’t live there. What is that about? There was barely anything going on that I wanted to do when I was on the doorstep, and now all of  sudden it’s the hub of my musical tastes and favourite comedians. Boo. Living in Cornwall is a double edged sword. The weather is good, the people are friendly, the beaches are plentiful. But It’s far away from everywhere I’ve ever wanted to be,…Continue Reading “Coming Soon To A Town Far Away”

Even tho I take a million self portraits of myself (see this set here for example, it has 1021 photos in it, almost 50% of the photos currently online on flickr) I still hate having my photo taken by other people. I can tolerate it a bit better, but it’s still something I’d rather avoid. So it was a rather pleasant surprise when Q* got his first roll of 35mm back this weekend to find this unexpected gem: It got me wondering about other photos…Continue Reading “Little Red”

Pandas that do not really look like pandas Sunlight, early in the morning Empty carparks Surprise post 35mm film love* Life is good. * I could add this to every Grace in Small Things list I ever do. I cannot get enough of 35mm – mine and everyone elses.

Horray, another month is done! Not a terrible month for 101/1001, it’s been full of distractions so actually completing any is perhaps a miracle in itself. Completed this month: 18. Do a car boot sale Close to completion: 4. De clutter 8. Delete all mp3s I don’t like 47. Take better care of my teeth 85. Go running I guess for June I need to concentrate on those and try and tick them off. My 101/1001 ends in September next year, and whilst I doubt I’m going to tick…Continue Reading “101 in 1001 – May Update”

I was almost back on track for May – 50 pages shy of reaching my 8 book total. Given that I had two incredibly hectic weekends and that I’m trying to put issue two of Télégramme to bed, I don’t think 7 books is to be sniffed at, heh. Books Read In May: 22. Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman – Haruki Murakami 23. Girlfriend in a Coma – Douglas Coupland 24. Shutter Island – Dennis Lehane 25. The Midwich Cuckoos – John Wyndham 26. Goes To…Continue Reading “Books! May Update”
