On a more interesting note....

What the hell is with the previous post? Oh well, let us move on.

Right, so in the meantime I have some photos/videos and information to share.

First of all, a word report. Well I'm still applying for jobs, dipping in and out of the boring life and into the creative mind, both proving to take sometime to get through to anything. But, I can't do anything more than keep trying, right? Even extending my little wings to anywhere across the British Isles, it's always worth dipping my feet elsewhere than the local area, especially with the creative job aspect. I don't think I could ever give up on that area of my life, too damn important.

Awww cripes, my nose has just started hurting, eek. Ok, all seems to be fine, damn face. Back to the topic/s.

I have now visited the Sea Life Centre in Birmingham, watching all the fishes and other sea dwelling creatures float me by, while I point my big ass camera lens in their face. Pssh, I should have it surgically attached into my eyeballs. Have a video to prove my point:

I should be uploading the photos eventually to my ShiverZ Photography account on Deviant Art, to save overloading this page full of aquatic delights and to pimp it out *sleazy wink*

This was a couple of days before I spent a very relaxing week away at a lovely dudes home to celebrate a lovely dudes birthday, spending time at Oxford Natural History Museum spying on fossils and tasty prehistoric specimens! It's not a very vast building, but the amount of creatures that can fit within that place is pretty impressive. From giant Iguanadon skeletons, to Humpback Whale skulls, it's all there. Even crabbies!

During this time, I have also been commissioned to paint a certain mens Warhammer Eldar army, which is awesome. He considered that I should get some moneys for how much I paint, (Through my own enjoyment I assure you. If a little man is in my radius, I'll pick it up and splatter some colour to it :D ) that I should earn something for it, besides the obvious praise and cuddly attention ^_^

Hmmm, youtube have sent me an e-mail informing me a video I was uploading has copyrighted music, therefore the sound has been disabled. Warner Brothers Music this time, damn you Cibo Matto. Time to re-edit.

Back to the story. During my time spent at this lovely mans house, we also visited a pet store, which was huuuuuge and gave me the biggest desire to purchase something fluffy with four legs. Purchasing a rabbit was very appealing at this point, failing that a rat. What surprised me the most was that they actually had crabs for sale, CRABS, I almost bought a pair right then and there (That rhymes!).

Viewing the finale episodes of 'The Spectacular Spiderman' also took place, an animation from the same creative mind of Greg Wiseman (Man behind Disney's 'Gargoyles'), unfortunately cut after the existing series due to the economy crisis. Boo! Don't mess with my animation economy. Along with 'Wolverine and the X-Men' animated series, which has luckily NOT been cancelled, and is just as entertaining. Both of the above series are animated not as awesome as Disney, but to a very tasty standard, especially during the fight scenes - OH HELL YEAH. It fills the gaps from my 'Avatar:The Last Airbender' binges.

With my much more relaxing trip back, actually catching my train this time round and returning home, I found myself viewing 'Marley and Me' the following day.
I warn you, DO NOT watch this movie if you are a dog owner and have lost your canine companion, I expected that this was obviously a movie about the life of a dog, but I don't think I prepared the tear flood barriers just as secure as I should have. Especially since the different life stages of Marley gave me reminiscence of my previous hounds. Gawd damn, I miss those guys. A bit more 'chick flicky' than my usual film choices, but worth ignoring the terrible advertisements to view some heart warming doglie buddy scenes, just ya know, take a tear bucket.

Now for some doglie remembrance time, because these guys were the fuzziest of pals and were always there for a good hug and a pet. They won't be forgotten.

Right, on a more positive note. I am actually heading to Edinborough VERY SOON. Heading out on the 28th April, so just under two weeks. Going to be all kinds of fun, just need to arrange what the hell and when the hell to do things XD There will be many photos/videos taken I assure you, so be prepared!

I better look into booking my Driving Theory test, since I keep putting it off D: BEEP BEEP BEEP.
