13. The White City (Part 2)

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

I swear that when I planned this, I did not go out of my way to choose towns that had railways running through them. Same name-as-tube-stops they might be, but I wasn’t trying to be that much of a geek and make it that there was a passing American railroad too. And yet strangely it […]

12. Superfood Me

Sunday, July 19th, 2009

I’m hungry, so it’s time to eat. My mum’s paying.

9. On The Road Again

Tuesday, July 7th, 2009

Time to put out another video. It felt good to hit the road again on Monday after a little downtime in Charleston over the weekend. Unfortunately I’m still using my somewhat-crappy backup video camera, but at least I now have a new companion to operate it! Hello J.J. who’s joined me for this week through […]

8. Reality

Monday, June 29th, 2009

I am in Greensboro, NC. And this – I’m afraid to say – is a very very real video. This was recorded by Katie on my crappy backup second camcorder video camera this morning, and hence the poor quality, apologies. Note: There is some strong language. They took my main kick-arse video editing PC. My […]

7. Oh for a rainy day

Thursday, June 25th, 2009

I am in Columbus Ohio. It is hot. Unusually hot, and I am grumpy. I shouldn’t be too grumpy, because bizarrely I’m a day ahead of schedule. I wasn’t mean to be here until today and instead I’m leaving Columbus shortly instead for the deepest darkest depths of West Virginia and the ‘stop’ along the […]

6. New York I love you, but you’re bringing me down

Saturday, June 20th, 2009

… is of course a song by LCD Soundsystem. It seemed pertinent though, because there came a point yesterday where I just felt like I was fed up of the city, of traffic, of stop-starting at junctions and lights and paying tolls all the time, and all I really wanted to do is just quit […]

5. The Maine Reason for Being Here

Thursday, June 18th, 2009

What? Don’t groan at my pun. I’ve spent a cumulative 22 hours in a car recently which is plenty of time to come up with a terrible title for today’s blog post, when you’ve nothing else to think about. Actually, it took a local to tell me that if you’re from Maine, then your refer […]

4. My hair is better than Alistair Cooke

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

It’s time to get a little poignant people. As it shouldn’t have been too hard for you to work out by now … the initial thinking behind this trip was for it to be my way of saying ‘farewell’ to the USA (by seeing it all) and then buggering off home. But I’m going to […]

Am I too camp? (Epsiode 3)

Sunday, May 24th, 2009

One of my favourite ever all time Tommy Cooper jokes is this one: So I went to a camping store and said “I’d like to buy a tent please”. The assistant replied “To camp?”, I said (butchly) “Sorry, I want to buy a tent.”, followed by “I also want to buy a caravan”. He said […]

What Car? (Episode 2)

Sunday, May 10th, 2009

You’re still following along? Marvellous. So you’ll want to be knowing what kind of car I’m travelling around in then. Which is why you need to watch this weeks installment … So I’m taking Beverlys car. Beverly, who is my landlady / housemate, and former colleague. This was never actually the original plan. The original […]

I’m Going Underground – USA Style (Episode 1)

Saturday, May 2nd, 2009

Hello. It’s May 2nd, 2009. On May 2nd 2006, I gave up everything I had in England and moved 4,000 miles west to the town of Charleston, South Carolina – a state which just a few months before I admit I’d heard of but didn’t really know whereabouts in America it was. And now it’s […]

Too. Much. Fun.

Friday, March 13th, 2009

Some backstory: I was 29 years old back in 2001, when two friends of mine back in the UK – Richard & Nikki got married. They were part of a big gang of friends that we all used to hang out with and have fun, and they were in a succession of a whole string […]
