44 DAYS TIL THE 9TH BLOGGERVERSARY- EEK!

001That’s right Earthlings/Marslings and any other lifeform picking up this transmission! I’ve been whittering/rambling on for nearly nine years on this blogsite! Some of it makes sense, but sometimes it hasn’t..

ANYWAY, From Saturday, I’ll officially begin the countdown, trying to write something everyday, even if it’s just reblogging other’s posts- It’s the Summer Blogathon where Anything can happen, Tuesday til Monday and then it starts all over again!

I’ll probably hit 900 posts by September. This one is 842-ish, so miles and miles to go before I sleeeeeep!

Better get cracking then hadn’t I?

THOUGHT FOR EASTER MONDAY- THE GREAT UNIVERSAL RIVER-

SAM_0592There is that ‘moment’ when you’re working on something, like a story and EVERYTHING comes together and it makes sense.

You think ‘Holy *^)%!bricks Batman!’ You’ve just found the emotional core/spine/centre/essential Essence of the Story!

ALL STREAMS FLOW INTO THE GREAT UNIVERSAL RIVER!

I like rivers, living close to the River Mersey, also the River Dee are the two main ones, with Weaver/Birkett and Gowy in the same area. I’ve also hiked along several canals- Bridgewater/Shropshire Union/Llangollen.

Jotting notes and ideas for a new draft of Homeguard script- Homeguard 2118. It occurred to me having an Alien Race whose main belief system centred on a River might be something a bit different. The Benjainian remnant featured in series 4 of Tiglet’s Time Travels, way back in 2013, so using a Feline Race made sense- kind of.

 Thought I had heard it mentioned, so googled it. The Lord of the Rings had a river in, but the thing that stood out was the Philosopher Heraclitus, so included that.

It’s just one of those many things I’m juggling and since I heard A River Runs Through It is being remade, thought I’d get philosophical, for a change!

 

Anyway- Happy Chocolate Egg Dayz!

 PS- Found one photo previously featured, back from 2012 when me and my Nephew James took a ferry cross the Mersey to see the Stormtroopers at Spaceport! It’s an early Tiglet outing!

 

 

 

 

ANY WAY THE WIND BLOWS- THE BEST OF 2018

ANY WAY THE WIND BLOWS- THE BEST OF 2018

Time for another video update, well over due anyway, like my Library books probably are!

I had thought about another 10-15 minute epic, but Eric Calderone’s Metal cover of Bohemian Rhapsody swayed me toward something quick and simple, although watching it back, there should have been a few tighter edits- though the end is probably one of the funniest things I saw all year.

There are a few new events I’ve been to- Bolton Comic Con, Lightnight Liverpool, as well as The Pirate Festival and Fire sessions with the Fire Project. I even took in a bit more architecture, though I’m not sure about Art Fairs anymore.

Wildlife has been a bit thin on the ground, seeing the Fox was great, but need to practice that a bit more. Comic Cons are still the main events, so I’m looking at going London or Birmingham this year.

And there were a few Welsh Castles, something else to finish off, at least in North Wales anyway.

So there you go, Any way the wind blows, the Best of 2018!

 

What’s to review?

So I know a few other people are writing about End of Year/what they’ve accomplished etc etc.

Me? I’ve been reading and watching stuff to review, trying to catch up on photo and video editing, so not much progress there.

I have updated and tried turning my Linked In profile into a new CV, which is okay, they left out loads in the conversion to pdf, but it’s a start.

So, here’s a taste of what I’ve been up to lately-

Happy 2019!

 

771st post-IAN’S TRAVELBLOG ADVENTURES/TIGLETVERSE PHOTOGRAPHY Update

So I’ve not been blogging about much lately, think that should change- one thing I have been focusing on is a new CV/Resume, using LinkedIn as the template- So here’s what I put about ITA/TVP-

Travel and Event photography and videography. I have built up a diverse portfolio over seven years. Began with Hiking/outdoors and Nature photography and expanded to include a variety of events/exhibitions/Comic Cons/Wildlife and Urban cityscapes. Currently working on Christmas lights/Winterscapes 2 projects.

500TH VIDEO!

So, I’ve finally made 500 videos, well, I’ve got the footage for a few more, so it’s mainly been catching up on editing the last couple of weeks, it’s a bit later than expected.

 So, I ended up realising one of the best things I have filmed was the Sunset from West Kirby Marine Lake the day after the Longest day in June. Shows how much I fell behind in editing that it’s taken me this long to sort it out, but I did it!
