It’s a thing for sure that when I was once zooming up the M40 to Birmingham for a Vehicle Derek rehearsal and blasting Phenomenon by UFO on the tape deck, that it got to the point in “Rock Bottom”, around about 4.23 where the 19 year old Michael Schenker’s guitar solo reaches peak-pant-weeing-ecstasy and I […]
There was some chat on Facebook the other evening about Lomography Purple film and why it is rated between 100 – 400 ASA rather than being fixed (it has no DX code for example). The way I always see it is the chemists in the labs of the film companies work hard and are usually […]
Music For Geocaching by Deep Grass So, a “new” album appears. I say “new”, as these songs have never had an official release, but they have been around for a long time. After “Music For DXing” came about in 2003 I created another set of five “doing” songs called “Music For Geocaching”. Geocaching is a […]
I was looking through my pictures the other day, updating my Flickr and Instagram and I had a thought, that I thought was interesting. So if you’re a follower of me you will know that because I take a lot of photographs using film, the time it takes to process films and then sort through […]
Back when I lived in East Oxford and could ride my bike to work I developed a special game to play on my commute. It was called Totality. It actually began in about 1986 back in Boston, Lincolnshire when one of my brothers came home once from his girlfriend’s house and told me that he […]
Because my last video on the Fuji TW-3 was quite popular, I made another video to show you a bit more about the camera, including how to load a film into it and how to protect it from light-leaks too. I chose one of my films from my fantastic stash of 24 exposure films. I […]
I made this video recently going through some of the clean sounds that the Boss MG-10 amplifier can make. I’m playing through my original one that I got in ’89 and I’m also using a Steinberger Spirit guitar which I got in about 2001. I’m not using any effects between the guitar and the amp […]
Since my site is quite popular with amplifier fans, I wanted to show you this video of the Squire SP-10 amplifier, which is a little 10 watt amplifier made by Squire (who are of course related to Fender). I thought I’d post about the amplifier because I’m going to mod this one beyond recognition, […]
My mate gave me a task on Facebook: choose 10 vinyl albums that greatly influenced my taste in music. One album per day for ten consecutive days. No explanations, no reviews, just album covers. So far I have done three in the last three weeks and…so…well I am not really sticking to the rules in […]
Here are two animated GIFs which are free for you to use. I made the Happy Birthday one last week, after I printed up a bunch of birthday cards ready for the year. Because each one came out slightly different, they make for an interesting animation when scanned and joined together. I can tell you […]
I wrote an article back in 2003 about listening to the radio which was posted on a long-gone radio-related email list. Since I found it recently, I’ve published it on here, but back in its proper place date-wise. I’m daft like that.
In season 3, episode 9 of Photo Chat Vlog I spoke about using a Yashica Samurai half-frame camera with expired film, and in this episode I wanted to follow up with some other half-frame experiments with my Fuji TW3. Now this is an interesting camera because first of all it’s a Fuji camera. Now normally […]
I think it was in season 3, episode 7 of Photo Chat Vlog when I got to the end of the video that I said that there wasn’t a loaded film camera in my life at that time, and that was July this year, 2019. But I can tell you I was quite busy shooting […]

Made for my magazine, “Veeb” sometime in 1994.
