What happens when you take ‘u’ out of drugs?

I saw something about drugs pop up in my usual newshounding today, so I thought I’d write something about that. Then, just before I started writing, I decided to go on Reddit where a video of Russell Brand talking about addiction was posted. On watching it, I realised it was far more eloquent and knowledgeable than anything I was going to write about the subject, even if it probably wasn’t particularly what I was going to talk about. So here it is – another reason I’m finding it hard to dislike Mr Brand:

Also, this makes it easier than writing while a few beers deep.

A rare spark of motivation has lead to something wonderful

I’ve had a strange day today – I was actually motivated to do something, rather than just fester. I mean, I did fester as I always do. It would be stupid of me not to when I get the opportunity to sit in my PJs doing (almost) fuck-all all day. But I had a twinge of something, and just a few minutes later I was recording a couple of videos.

Now one was an attempt to be funny, which I’m not too sure about. I’ll be holding off on doing anything with that for the time being. The other though was something I think I can work with – making video guides for games. Obviously I play them loads and am well good like, so why not share my knowledge? Here’s proof, if proof be need be, that my guides will be amazing:

With these handsome good looks, the ability to get the audience eating out of the palm of my hand and some mad skillz innit, I think this could be the start of something beautiful.

I’m not forking out for expensive video capture stuff though, so it’s strictly off-screen for the foreseeable future.

(NOTE: The video is actually a piss-take, shockingly enough, just in case you’re put off watching it because you think I’m being serious.)

Stop looking over my shoulder, goits

Seems this didn’t publish earlier when I pressed ‘publish’. Soz.

A five hour train ride isn’t a great deal of fun, surprisingly because it takes five hours. But I’ve found there is one great way in which you can make the journey just fly by. Step one is to take some form of device that can play movies on it, so you can watch a selection of movies, or TV shows or whatever else you want to watch. This means there will be a screen on which you are watching moving images – a key point of the plan.

Step two is to make sure there’s somebody sat within your peripheral vision – but this can’t just be anyone, it has to be a particular kind of person. The kind of person I’m talking about, of course, is the kind who will insist on watching things over your shoulder. It just makes the journey FLY BY when you have some gormless oaf who can’t do anything but stare, mouth agape at the fact you have a colourful screen projecting the moving images of famous people you might know of.

While it does make the journey FLLLLYYYY BYYYY, I would still like to punch every single one of these nosey morons in the face. Except for the ones who are bigger than me, or ones who look stabby. I find it intensely annoying, and it’s made all the worse when they comment on what’s on the screen either to their friends or to me. TO ME.

Arseholes. Stop it.
