Lessons from walking

Druid Life

One of the big issues around social interaction, for me, has always been how much compromise is required in order to fit. How much of me will it be necessary to hide? How much will I have to tolerate that I find difficult, uncomfortable, even painful? How much humiliation will I have to endure? How is the trade off going to work here and what’s the cost going to be, and can I sustain it?

As illustration, I love walking and there have along the way been opportunities to walk with various people. However, there are a few things that make me a less than perfect walker – poor depth perception and lack of physical confidence mean I struggle on rough terrain. Some days I am stiff and achy such that walking is hard work. Other people are a lot fitter than me. So in some situations, walking with people…

All societies have their snobs (300th post).


water snob

This marks my 300th post on wordpress.com.

I’m pretty sure that’s important.  I think there might be a special VIP club for 300 post snobs like myself.  Or does 300 posts earns me a major award?  A personal letter of recognition from WordPress founder & CEO Matt Mullenberg wouldn’t be amiss (along with some stock options).

At the very least, I think I’ve earned some frequent flyer miles.

If 300 posts won’t get me any perks at WordPress, perhaps a few of these other stats might:

  • total number of comments = 1,220
  • total number of blog followers = 9,298 (wow!)
  • total number of cartoons posted = 355
  • total number of posts published in a print magazine = 2
  • total number of tattoos that were inspired by my drawings = 2
  • total number of  Thai restaurants illegally using my artwork = 1

Even the Thai restaurant display is flattering (in a way).  Here are photos of the Thai restaurant in question and my…

Just keep blogging

Anyhow there’s just a few things i would like to share,

1. The thunder and lightning the other day was awesome if any of you were up at ridiculous Oclock in the north, then you would have caught a glimpse of the terrifying yet impending thrashes and bright radiances.

(Taken from the Manchester Evening News)

2. Always keep up to date with your Hotmail just a couple of days away from the continuous fan mail:P and i now have 200 hundred emails, less than impressed.

3. Have a read of Divergent, its a fantastic novel.

A fractal film noir uses a dark narrative to help teach math

I downloaded TED on Xbox one so re-blogging them is a must, they see life so unconventionally.

TED Blog

The TED-Ed Lesson “The case of the missing fractals” isn’t just an introduction to the intricate and beautiful world of fractal geometry; it’s also a fully-realized film noir short complete with plot, drama and a smattering of ridiculous puns. This cinematic creation is the product of a TED-Ed dream team, with writing by veteran TED-Ed Educators George Zaidan and Alex Rosenthal (watch their lesson “Exploring other dimensions“) and animation by our own TED-Ed Animation Producer Jeremiah Dickey (watch his lesson, “A brief history of religion in art“). We met up with this trio to talk about the process of approaching an educational lesson with a narrative eye.

Why did you want to cover fractals? How did you come up with the idea for this lesson? 

Alex Rosenthal: I started working on this when the previous lesson that George and I worked on together, which was about Flatland, premiered. A lot…

The Fault in Our Stars


Taken from a Tumblr fanpage

Finally got around to seeing The Fault yesterday. I watched in with a churning in my stomach as romantic novels tend to always exploit my sensitive side. I must admit at times i was watching the film with much more admiration than i wouldn’t like to say it was worth as to belittle this film would be very uncanny of me but when i first saw the trailer i immediately wanted to see it and by no means did it let me down i spent the last half an hour crying over the beautiful acting from Shailene Woodley (Hazel Graze) and of course the Charming  Ansel Elgort (Augustus) i just feel like how Hazel feels throughout the whole film over the Novels she’s so defined in. I just wanted more of the books beauty and stunning imagery and how she copes after the death of her Gus. NEVER THE LESS, John Green has created a book that i will encourage the next generation to read many years from now and i will remember,
