right i again apologise for the lack of communiques but i tend to keep to myself at home. but never fear im back in salford! dunno about picture taking around here though. i live next to a park and closer to the quays than before but the light around here is bizzare imo. i havent attempted owt yet but looking at tonight i could tell grainy pictures awaited and back in skipton the "nuclear glow" was pretty bad but this is a city in a city!!! the next batch of photos will no doubt be relating to my summer project until i split off the blog from the course version i will eventually create

Vigilante

Todays dream is brought to you by pyscho eds discount pain.

Today i was out in Leeds i think with my dad and his mates. i was carrying a lot of gear i guess i was coming back from uni or somat. i eventually got tired and decided to go back to where i was staying which was some housing in a shopping centre (i dont get that either) i got in and started looking for entrance to the hotel or whatever it was (never got a chance to enter) until all my gear started to get to my and i began to topple over but a heavy plantpot managed to save my fall. there 2 fit foreign girls decided to talk to me commenting on how my hair looks a bit crap. while arranging myself so the gear wouldnt make me loose my balance again i was talking to them for a bit saying how this is the classic ed bed head look. Because i put a few of my things down so i could sort my rucksack some people used the distraction of this to grab one of my smaller bags but i saw him before he escaped and chased him down. by giving him an elbow to the gut he dropped to the ground and i started to talk to him about how the guy shouldnt steal stuff because its not fair on the people they steal from. After id finished my speech i turned back over to notice security beginning to pick up one of my larger bags which i immediately stopped by shouting him down and grabbing it back. At this point i couldnt even find the hotel i was supposed to be staying at so i stepped outside the building to get my bearings. i go down to some cafe area down by a river and look a the building where another girl comes over and talks to me at this point some chav scumbags begin to move to try and take my bags as they use her as a diversion. i spot them and warn them away because id allready had it done to me so im going to be super aware plus i would just not be in the mood to which they start to talk to me a bit where another chav tries to grab it again. Once again i spot him and tell him to just fuck off. After a couple more attempts i begin to get angry and show them just why they shouldnt try to steal of my by going sam fisher on their arses and punching them in the faces smacking their heads on walls etc. and they eventually back off. i try again to find out where im meant to be staying but i cant for the life of me figure it out so i go outside and just have a lie down thinking that my head isnt working properly because i was too pissed off and adrenaline filled which unfortunately leads to a sleep. I wake up the next day and the place im in is filled with people just generally ignoring me sleeping inbetween the cafe chairs and i notice im lying down on one of my bags that happens to be empty. with a couple stuff they didnt have any use for scattered around me i begin to fill my bag with what i can find thats mine when i spot the girl who started this whole endeavour off staring at me with a guilty face. i stare back at her with a disappointed face for quite some while until i notice there's a few things in that bag allready. one a note on a piece on a white post tit thing which i had initially wrote on but only partially and a picture. The note read that she was sorry for what had happened and that to celebrate they almost always go to a nearby club of which is what the picture was. I ask to borrow someones laptop to which they surprisingly agree and i look for what club it is eventually finding the club from the indentical picture on the site along with a picture featuring the muggers on the dancefloor. i take note of where it is and give the laptop back (after some prompting because it was similar to mine :S) and go after them in the night. i get into the club quite easily and move through the crowd to the main dance floor where i see them all there partying away on some kind of drugs and i just stand there looking at them all when they eventually notice. im there looking pissed off as hell. the one who got his head smacked against the wall comes over to me with a big grin on his face thinking hes safe because its in a public place where i grab his neck and begin to twist it until i hear a snap. at this point a bouncer comes over asking if hes allright to which i reply hes just pissed out of his face and let him slowly drop to the floor. since hes still talking (?) he says a few random things such as duck and the bouncers agree that hes normally here on something or the other so hes probably telling the truth. the others theives all look at until Sean Bean comes over (AHMAGAD SEAN BEAN) and asks whats going on here. I reply just some justice to which Sean just looks me over and nods and walks away leaving the theives sort of bricking it. Unfortunately this is where the dream ends but im guessing some sort of kungfu/punisher style fight occurred

Dreamscape

Pretty awesome dream. I was at some sort of hybrid version of where i used to live, my home in yorkshire and salford and was essentially just going about my daily buisness. I only remember from going to the swimming baths where i managed to walk in and get in there whilst there was some sort of lesson going and after realising i hop out and get changed. randomly apparently the band creed were playing in the same building when some guys came into the changing rooms and asked me that he'd thought he'd seen me before and thought i liked them because apparently i had msn groups towards it and we'd all get together talk about the band and then game on somat. i leave fairly quicksmart because i couldnt be bothered with it and start walking... home? while listening to my iPod which while crossing a road manages to fall out of my pocket with the headphones still attached. i pull it back into my hands before a car runs over it and start setting it to some better music where i see some chav fuck with a black eye start walking directly towards me with his belt or somat. he comes up to me and shouts give me your ipod or ill kick the shit out of you to which i reply "will you really then?" so he gets his belt and attempts to beat beat me with however before it manages to build momentum i pull an indiana jones and grab it mid lunge which wraps it around my fist and i pull it off from him. the chav so confused immediately starts to back away quite rapidly still attempting to shout threats like "give me your iPod i need it to buy heroin" while im walking towards him with a broken pint glass i found on the floor. he then legs it away so i drop the glass when i suddenly hear some of my rarely seen friends start shouting me and run up to me and drag me to some party (to which the chav is at but attempting to hide in the crowd). i dont know why this happened but after i decided to go the scene suddenly changes to that of a live feed on a computer so i close it down and go tell my dad how about my chav "fight"

Ghost school

The continuation of last nights dream to which id forgotten about till id forgotten about until now.

The story takes place in some sort of abandoned school/college, one I've never seen before I might add. A large group of us are traversing into it from the main door. The paranormal activity increases the deeper inside you get. Yesterdays dream dealt with the most haunted style of ghost sightings with just orbs, glowing shit, doors opening/closing on their own and very slight apparitions. I'm not totally sure what happened in the end but I imagine that I saw a direct apparition and that caused me to wake up.

Today's dream continues directly after whilst deeper in to school. The starting ghost sign was an invisible poltergeist moving the doors and window shutters as if he were running past knocking into them as he circled the room. Then proper ghosts start to appear. we're in a relatively empty room and 3 almost transparent ghosts appear from where we entered the room from and started shoot (I know this sounds wrong) guns at us. We all instinctively duck from the gun shots of which do no damage and when we realise this the ghosts have already disappeared. We head on into a student area with 2 big pool tables, a TV, more window shutters and a glass wall showing a courtyard area. We all take a break and start playing pool and watching TV and the like as the aerial still works (forgot to mention the power in the building is working). I noticed that on the TV it showed a room very very similar to the room we were in, albeit devoid of us. I bring this to everyone's attention to which people aren't really bothered until i look down the corridor we entered the room from. 3 ghosts suddenly start to materialise and end up being quite visible compared to before walking towards us until they properly enter the room and again start shooting us up. This marked the end of my dream as some cunt from outside was being loud

Kick-Ass

I dont get the concept of the film. Some nerd decides to go out and fight crime and then someother guy screws up his kids life completely when he decides to take a vendetta out on some gang lord with her and all of this is meant to be semi plausable

Final

final rant of the night

I am a vegetarian (despite appearances) and I disagree completely with the whole seasherpard bollocks. Firstly the leader is a Greenpeace reject who decided to go for a quick buck and televise his futile efforts. Secondly all they do is anger the whalers who have years of experience hunting whales and can easily just turn away and nab extra endangered species (plus their last attempt at stopping the whalers resulted in their prize boat getting cut in half). Thirdly dont sympathy story your way into getting peoples interests! There are far harder working anti whalers at work who dont do it so they can say "AHMAGAD IM ON TV LOOOK AT MEEEEE" they do it because they generally believe in the course and do as much as they can to cause the whalers to get bored and fuck off home like they should.

Peace x

bass way

Im pretty sure the bands tonight had better bassists than me because their fingering seemed significantly better than mine though since i spent most of the time watching the second band play wondering how in fucks name he could afford 1k+ worth of Musicman Stingray bass love i guess he could afford some top notch lessons and I'm self taught. Though tbf had lessons in violin and trumpet (like the latter matters)

Position on glam rock

Saw a few indie (and one semi indie) glam bands... first singer was utter shit so payed no attention. Second was a guns'n'roses cover/tribute band whether they like to call themselves that or not.... fucking horrible! could only hear the singer drummer and rhythm guitarist and they all have stupid expensive instruments. the people (cept the singer) may have been awesome players but couldn't hear them for fuck. 3rd was a Metallica tribute band which was definitely my favourite band of the night (again they might not call themselves that but they are) and lastly was the main band which I'm afraid to say (very sorry Laura) no, just no. Theres a film with mark warlberg where he plays the lead of a "metal" band which is a perfect example why its a no.
