Renovations


I have spent the past few days deleting, consolidating & tightening the posts that have made up this blog for the last 5 years.  With over 1,300,000 views, 10,000 views of my profile, and 200 followers, I have decided to do some house-cleaning.  As you may have noticed, I have removed all the posts with Rapidshare links.  In the middle of January Rapidshare protocols changed, and all publicly available videos were set to private for every Rapidshare member.  In order to make any of my videos publicly accessible, I have to create a new folder specifically for the public.  It will be available soon with new content. I will repost only my favourite clips from the previous 'old' stream.

I have always looked for things a bit out of the ordinary and will continue to do so.  Vintage imagery and video will always be a part of this blog. Also, I will never make this a commercial blog.  There is nothing more annoying to me than to be assaulted by pop-ups and flashing advertising.  I will also 'back date' stuff, which means that I will add new stuff to old posts to fill them out with things I have found.

It is a new year and I will try to do more writing, add some poetry, and be a bit braver - add more of myself - if you approve.  I am 50 now, but will do my best to stay in shape.  I am currently in the process of writing a new article that I will post after a few revisions and some polishing.

Once again I must thank Craig at Porncake for his recognition that my blog had some potential - after an initial chat over 8 O'clock Coffee :)

You've been doing a beautiful job on your blog for such a time that I can't imagine how anyone would believe that it's suddenly going to suck. I look forward to seeing whatever you choose, and I thank you for all the great stuff you've already.

Hey you fellas (tony, Chaet, Nicco), thank you very much for taking a look and sticking around for more. I will drive this thing until the summer warmth comes around and time comes for camera walks and a break :)

Haha, and tony, IT will make a mostly regular appearance, give or take a mood, or distracting work...
