Get it?

Get it?

The Chip Shop Awards are for work that’s most likely never going to get through regulations. Click the picture for this year’s nominations.

Most of it is very very clever, and a lot of it is chuckle-worthy. Enjoy!



Something I found whilst redecorating.

I knew it was there all along actually, I just haven’t really looked at it since. It’s a paper banner that was put up at my eighteenth birthday party for people to write on.

And then, written under a flap of paper on the back I found this:

We’re not in touch any more, it’s wierd to look back on though. c’est la vie.



The Home Office doesn’t like me getting drunk.

Good point, but I like getting wrecked occasionally. You’re only young once and all that. Watching that made me want to go out.

Also, I like his shoes.

I love Chris Morris.

I hope he never gives up satirical comedy. Anything can be funny when he’s involved in it.

Also, the non-satire things he does are equally as good, thus:



The Grand Tour In York

This Summer, York’s streets will be filled with all sorts of famous paintings.

Have a look here, especially at the map. They’ll all be up by the 19th June.

Obviously, they aren’t the originals. A Monet got stolen this week, like they were going to get money for it… fools.

Anyway, I’m excited, mostly at Constable’s Hay Wain.



Teenage

I want to go back to university. Summer is making me sick.

I like it here, I like the company of my friends and having not so much to do. I like my family, the chickens, the bike riding and free food. But, there’s always a but.

I can’t be myself at home. I feel like I have to act up and behave well, when in reality I don’t give a fuck how messy my room is etc.

That’s what I’m like deep down you know, A lot of the time I come across as a really nice guy, and I like being like that, it’s the parents and new people routine. I am actually still a teenager, I live in mess, swear profusely, get drunk and smoke given half the chance.

This weekend is a good example. Chances are on Saturday I’ll be on the pull, get blathered and stumble home, then wake up half an hour before my cousins first communion and put on the façade again.

Further to the above

Even my refuge from family life, the pub, has been taken over. My parents come to the quiz night, now so does my little brother, even my Gran turns up once a week. I need to get out of it, do something different, go somewhere else, be my occasional libertine self.

Perhaps the opportunity will come next week, or this weekend. I know someone I could get in with, so to speak. It’s perhaps a dark path, but at this stage in my life I really don’t give a fuck.

Bring on the sex, drugs and rock and roll.

This is not the kind of thing I want to be writing about, but what is said is said, and cannot be taken back. There will be no more posts like this.



Big Ideas: (Don’t get any)

This is amazing. It’s James Houston’s response to Radiohead’s “Nude” remix competition.

“Based on the lyric (and alternate title) “Big Ideas: Don’t get any” I grouped together a collection of old redundant hardware, and placed them in a situation where they’re trying their best to do something that they’re not exactly designed to do, and not quite getting there.

It doesn’t sound great, as it’s not supposed to.”

ta very much to formfiftyfive.
