Zombie Rap

Those of you with better attention spans and memories than myself will know that I often collaborate with my buddy Will McD. Here is his brand new comedy video.

Usually my emotionless, detached and clumsy acting necessitates that I am first choice for such roles as “man in background”, “guy reading book” and “tree no4”. However, this time, my gangly form was well suited to being a zombie. I may have found my true path in life!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy and “like” / “share” / “subscribe” / get involved in petty feud with several other viewers over the smallest details.

Murky Water: A beginner’s experiences with Adwords

Pretty interesting reading for anyone looking into paid links and self promo.

YouTube is an overwhelming sea of “durge” with nuggets of gold floating on the top and some pretty good gems hidden below the surface suspended like silty sedimenty stuff. The problem is you can’t see the awesome suspended gems as they are hidden from view by the turgid lumpy bits floating on the surface. The durge can be overwhelming. Everyone loves a good excrement metaphor.

My point is that I struggle to gain exposure and views on YouTube. There is an awful lot of content for prospective viewers to sift through to even find one of my videos. Now i’m not trying to claim that my videos fall in the hidden gems category at all. I just find that from personal experience when searching for any content that might have taken time to write, edit and film that for every one of these I find I first have to wade…

The Wii U: A fan boy’s perspective

Will McDaniel

Cards on the Table: I am quite the Nintendo fan boy. I love Nintendo. Always have.  However no matter how much I adore them I am still able to take a step back and view them objectively.

Adding a second card to my table of transparency; I will also admit that I own and love a Wii U. Love it like it were a rectangular plastic high glossed child of mine. In my opinion the console itself is great. Sure the processing power can’t match the other consoles in this new generation but the game pad opens up opportunities for original and fresh game play mechanics that limit stale reproductions of familiar titles. That’s not to say Nintendo doesn’t stick with its few tried and tested IPs, because it does, but the new iterations contain (or should contain) interesting new ideas and play styles.

However the console is dying. This…

September Update

Wow, so this year is cracking on by. I’ve been kind of quiet on here with regards to poetry. It’s strange because I don’t feel like my productivity has slumped in any way but writing one new poem in 7 weeks is kinda slack. Especially when I was churning out three or four a month last year.

Despite the facts not lying, I still feel creatively satisfied.

In the last month or so I’ve released my first ever poetry reading.

This was for Rough Mouth, which using the wholly arbitrary and inaccurate “most hits”, I adjudged to be one of my more popular poems.
It was shot in one take. It makes me cringe to watch my big stupid lips and weirdly aggressive looking eyes but I think that, for a first try, it’s actually not hideous. I will look to be doing more of these over the coming months and then perhaps try a bit of spoken word or visit some local groups.

I also acted in my friend’s short comedy film.

Will is a great comedy writer and puts a huge amount of work into directing and editing his pieces. Working with him is awesome, as long as we stay on topic and keep clear of games consoles.

Finally, on the subject of poetry. I may be ponderously slow at the moment but I genuinely believe that the half dozen or so poems I have lined up for Hell Yeah; Part Three, particularly Thrones and Sent, I Meant, are my best developed and most involved verse so far.

Hope you’re all good guys!

Three Guys On A Sofa

Finally, for your viewing pleasure, a series of short comedy sketches featuring myself and my best friends.
Filmed, edited, written, produced and adapted for squirrels by Will McD (please like his channel or he will find me and use that crossbow, it wasn’t a gag!)

Please like and share if you are entertained even slightly, Will is as passionate about films as I am about poetry.

Cheers
