Alcohol

I think it should be banned, seriously Scotland is so bad our culture is just unbelievably ruled by going to pubs, clubs and getting rat arsed. I stopped drinking for 5 months before and it was so good. Im wanting to stop again because I just think it is a drug of devastation to be honest it creates nothing but bother as my dad says and it is so true. I am so over it. I have tried to limit myself but I just don't. and can not. anyway just felt like a little rant. I don't know if you will remember but when alco pops first got introduced in the U.K there was a massive hoo ha because they look so like soda and pop we call it fizzy juice. The thing is the greed of the government is just sickening and they did absolutely nothing about it and they wonder why the U.K has problems with kids getting blutered at ages of 10 and up DOH. Even worse I bet some younger too. If I ruled the world I would actually totally ban it. If you can't tell I'm hungover and not in the best of moods with the substance. What is your opinion on it? and can you tame your inner wild child attitude when your swaying about like a wonky pendulum?

Inside My Friends belly Live on Webcam

One of my best friends is pregnant and she moved to Canada last year with her boyfriend so obviously it is weird not to be with her at such an important time in her life but we got to see in her belly live on web cam it was mad! you get sent an email with a password and you can log in so her mum and dad seen it live too! it was a bizarre experience but really amazing too. You can send the password to 5 emails and I felt so special to be one it was a lovely feeling. Below is a screen capture of the baby I was amazed at how detailed it was!! A new little life is going to be in the world soon, that makes me happy I know I sound like a total cheesball but it's true kids are amazing It's just a shame that the world sometimes changes them from the cute innocent creatures they were man I so want a baby :(. My friends will be excellent parents though they are a great couple I think they will take to it like ducks to water. Also another amazing thing is that my sister is having another baby!! she is due in October just a month after my friend it is a total shock because she is 38 now and her first son is 13 and there was no way she was expecting to have another baby I'm so excited I really wish they both never lived so far away though, my sister lives in Dublin it's not too far but still too far.

Bobby Neel Adams - Age

Two photographs of the same person at different ages of their life put together. I love to see how the people have aged and if I think they suit their old young self as a child. You can visit Bobby's site below and have a look at his other work if you like.

Susan Boyle Impression

I couldn't help laughing at this because the comedian Matt Lucas has captured her look so well. I'm looking forward to his act and to see if he can carry off the singing too.

Bernard PRAS - Assemblage/Installation

These images are really amazing I like how the smaller items make up the bigger picture. can you recognise who they are?
An Acimboldo of the 21st century? (Giuseppe Arcimboldo was an Italian painter best known for creating imaginative portrait heads made entirely of such objects as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish)
"Pras, a contemporary French artist using photography and lithography, is considered one of the most uncommon artists of the new generation.
Assemblage/Installation of various items and photographed from a certain angle to depict the final result"

Moroccan Mint Tea Culture

I love the Moroccan tea culture. When I was there I was in love with the mint tea it is so nice to have after and before a meal it is loaded with sugar though so it's probably not the healthiest of stuff but it tastes so good. I have a mint plant now so I can start to make my own Moroccan mint tea! all it is is mint leaves, sugar and boiling water although it has to be a certain kind of mint. with packs of sugar. They pour it from a certain height so it gets foam on the top you can see how high they pour it from in the photograph below.

My New Hair

The photo's never turned out very good but you can get an idea of what my hair was like before and after. It was very long and straight without any body so just hung down each side of my head like curtains so I decided to get it cut and layered with a long fringe. Hope you like it, let me know what you think and if you prefer it before or after and don't worry I wont be offended if you prefer it long. hehe

Coraline You Should go see it

We went to see the film Coraline tonight it was so cool we got some free 3d glasses. I thought it was as wacky as Alice in Wonderland but definitely had it's own style it is a new favourite film of mine. I would love one of the cool Coraline keys to wear around my neck I can't afford one of the real ones but I might make one for myself out of polymer clay. I loved the way that the film was very dark but it was magical and so unique the fact it was in 3d really added to the magic. The film below shows how they made the blooming flowers what a great imaginative crew they must have had.

Twitter 5.0 Earthquake - Los Angeles, California - May 17, 2009, 08:56 PM Video Footage

I was on twitter when everyone started suddenly started talking about an earth quake it was pretty scary and mad to say the least. I was supposed to get to bed but the excitement was too much. Isn't it weird that twitter is now faster than the news people were all speaking about it before any news stations or sites had reported it I am really starting to like twitter for these reasons it's great to have world wide communication like that! I found a video with some footage from youtube...
