Okay so I just got back from London with college which was an amazing trip. Got to see some real cool pieces of art and also bought myself a panoramic camera so the photos from that should be up soon. Also a new edit should be up very soon as well, maybe even tonight!!! Anyway just stumbled across these paintings by Fiona Ackerman on Booooooom and really like them. I love the collage feel they give and really like the simplicity off them. Enjoi

Well I got back today from this crazy city and all I can say is that its one off the best cities in the world and I had an amazing week, despite being nearly pick pocketed twice and being offered every drug under the sun every 30 seconds. We stayed right in the middle off the city, just off le ramblas in some skanky 1 star hotel but that only made it better. I took the kids bike with me and although sustaining a puncture within 5 minutes on the first night I managed to fit some riding in, mainly just bombing around the city. Here’s some photos as pictures will speak a thousand words so enjoi. Cheers to Louise, Amy and Moody for the pictures. The shitty ones are off my phone.
*EDIT* The Troglo Ditos were a cheap cereal from Spain that was packed sooo tightly that you could hit someone over the head and it was like being hit by a brick. Absolutely ace.
So today is the day I get to escape this miserable weather for more temperate climates. We’ve got a 26 hour coach journey ahead off us to get there and my bikes been smuggled aboard in a guitar case so all thats left to say is Adios Amigos.

Well we have officially started some form of filming for Penguins Bite, and shits been popping off. Keep your eyes out for a T-shirt in the near future that is guaranteed to get you in a fight in town! Check out Tricklist and Scott’s blog for almost identical updates, was this planned? Needless to say the photos are dialed with some funny comments to add. Anyway injures are happening already with Robbie jarring his wrist on a crazy 180 and myself sustaining a suspected broken finger from suicide hops! All I’m going to say is that the uni has many secret and yet to be discovered spots! Also before I forget Tom has posted some pretty sweet photos up from his recent adventures on his blog, Ill Thought Actions!

I put my ratty fixie back together after spraying it… well there is only one coat on it and I’m too broke to buy more primer. Anyway I decided to bomb up to Kirkham Abbey and have a swim. It had been pissing it down all day and luckily the clouds decided to part in the evening so I went for a pedal with the vague intention of finding a river to swim in and ended up at Kirkham abbey. All I can say is that I need a brake as i almost ate shit into a railway crossing!

Gus, Robbie, Moley and myself went to Leeds on saturday, originally for the Hell on Hyde jam but it got called off due to the sad death of Charlie Prow, Rest in Peace! We decided to go anyway and the weather turned out perfect and we had an amazing street and Hyde session. Anyway I made a video from the day so shout outs to everyone who went because everyone held the camera at some point and were going off it in front of the lens!
