Workout Plan + Epic Beard =

I figure, that if for a couple of months I work out a little bit here and there and just let my beard grow I’ll look a little something like the self-portrait below. Obviously I will have to purchase the sword and epic underwear.

I’m going to grow a beard.

It will be epic and magical. All the girls will flock to me but as I have a girlfriend I will say NO, FEEBLE WOMEN, as they get absorbed into my beard only increasing the power of awesome that it will yield.

Tilt Shift iPhone Photography

“Tilt-Shift miniature faking is a creative technique whereby a photograph of a life-size location or object is manipulated to give an optical illusion of a photograph of a miniature scale model.”

With that in mind, I took the techniques used in Photoshop and applied them to some photos I took on my trusty iPhone.

Attempt number 1
Attempt 2 - the better one.

I’m not really sure what to say about this piece. It appears, however, to be a lonely cyclops finger.

Bird shit tastes so good!

Here’s a variation of the eggless, milkless, butterless cake I made the other day… but instead of one; it’s two, on top of each other, with butter icing in the middle. Damn. It’s good.

How to make a Chocolate cake without Eggs, Milk or Butter!

I’m sitting at home, and after a luscious Spaghetti Bolognese I fancy something sweet. The house is dry of anything that can even resemble sugary goodness! So I explore the interwebs and come across a cake that was used in WWII because of the rationing of supplies. I worked my magic and needless to say… it looks pretty good. It’s currently cooling so I haven’t actually tried it; but it smells amazing.

Before I get on with the recipe I must warn you that it is American i.e. it used cups instead of exact measurements. I used a small/medium cup.

Check it out – the ultimate STUDENT CAKE!!

  • Vegetable-oil cooking spray
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened natural cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sunflower oil
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons distilled white vinegar (I used 1/2 teaspoons of normal vinegar)
  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees celsius. Coat an 8-inch round cake pan with spray (I greased with vegetable oil and coated with cocoa).
  2. Whisk water and cocoa in a small bowl until smooth. Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl, and make a well in center. Add cocoa mixture, oil, and vanilla. Whisk until smooth. Whisk in vinegar. Pour into pan.
  3. Bake until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes. Run a knife around edge of cake, invert it onto rack, and turn cake right side up. Let cool completely. Transfer cake to a serving plate or a cake stand. Cake can be stored at room temperature for up to 2 days.


It tastes AMAZING!

Seedy Photography

I’ve been getting into the whole retro / polaroid / seedy looking / over exposed style photography recently. I like the style a lot so I’m probably going to give it a go for myself, see what I can come up with.

I found an iPhone app called ShakeItPhoto which basically just makes any photo into a polaroid. You have to shake it to develop it which was fun once, now it’s just tedious. Here’s a photo Charlotte took of me attempting to play Wonderwall.
