2018 here we go. I’m going to make some ads. Maybe get a job. Hopefully, do some work a little more inspired than this SCAB. I’m currently doing this while trying to edit a film so its not really Shakespeare quality. I also don’t have any ideas about what to write so I’m probably going to just come up with random thoughts until I hit the mandatory minimum word count. Its for me to reflect after all.

 

I’m making movie! Its about Alex Taylor and the project has turned me into a twat. Never realised how much of a control freak/how much work movies are. If its not worth it in the end that would a real shame. Would rather put out nothing at all than something of poor quality especially after all the work I’ve put into this.

 

If you’re a crab and you’re walking on the ocean floor and you look up it probably looks like all the fish are flying. That’s cool.

 

When am I going to start doing work I’m proud of? Feels like I’ve made a lot of stuff but non of it can really go into the portfolio. I suppose I just trust the process.

 

Have you ever read the lyrics to ‘Africa’ by Toto? Here they are:

 

I hear the drums echoing tonight But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation She’s coming in 12:30 flight The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation I stopped an old man along the way Hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient melodies He turned to me as if to say “Hurry boy, It’s waiting there for you” It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do I bless the rains down in Africa Gonna take some time to do the things we never have The wild dogs cry out in the night As they grow restless longing for some solitary company I know that I must do what’s right As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti I seek to cure what’s deep inside, frightened of this thing that I’ve become It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do I bless the rains down in Africa Gonna take some time to do the things we never have Hurry boy, she’s waiting there for you It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do I bless the rains down in Africa I bless the rains down in Africa I bless the rains down in Africa I bless the rains down in Africa I bless the rains down in Africa Gonna take some time to do the things we never have.

 

So there you have it.

 

Tune in next time for more quality SCABs from Dan.
