This is the final of the gummy bears… Its sad i know but everything must come to end… as Stars Wars did…ow wait.
Now, firstly, there’s some rather huge spoilers here, so look away now.
I spend the majority of my time on this site covering stuff with a geeky edge to it, like superhero outings and horror films. Every now and again I’ll drop in something a little different, purely because I have an interest in it. This is one of those things. As a huge Family Guy fan, this hurts, man. It hurts. Yes, as the title suggests, the latest episode of the show – which hasn’t aired over in the UK yet – saw the death of a major, major character.
During this latest episode, the Griffin family’s best friend was killed. Ran over by a car, Brian Griffin is no more. I guess you could’ve seen it coming when the episode was titled Life of Brian. The character’s injuries were deemed too severe, and he…

On an early Saturday I found out that someone sent an anonymous letter about the press release about the level 4 apprenticeship with Cyfle in the Aberdare Leader. The letter started saying congrats to me on getting an apprenticeship with BBC Wales…First of all that is wrong but i was like ok thats nice they said well done but then they went on to say that my grandparents lived in Rhigos and my other set lived in Penywaun…Which they do well done to the writer getting that right. The next thing on the letter was to say that I was not from Aberdare but I quote “A Penywaun Man” in fairness this is also true but I dont think 2 miles makes a difference in this case.
The next part of the letter amused me and made me chuckle, they went on to say that my father Chris was an “Accomplished center half and captain of Penywaun FC”… I asked my father two questions as he ever captain his reply was a simple no, the next questions was have you been accomplished center half? his reply was yes but I have heard stories not backing that answer.
After they said that about my father they said I had a famous referee uncle…No I dont have a famous uncle that was a ref…he was a ref in the Aberdare football league…that’s it… if he is famous for that then i must be Gareth Bale compared to him!, This upset my mother that she was not mentioned in this letter but to be honest i wouldn’t blame them (only joking my mother is lovely)
To be honest I feel quite humbled that someone (I still dont know who) cared enough to send in a letter ( like come on…use E-mail…catch up with the times) but in all seriousness I did feel humbled to see that and I am glad I have a fan out there somewhere…that knows so much about my family…Yeah Thanks!
Last night I finally witnessed a piece of my work on TV…I have to admit i was proud to see it…even though its not my best bit of work or the biggest.
As i sat there watching my 20 second plus ident I thought ‘Wow thats my idea and my work on TV’ it was hard to take in at first cause i knew in my head it could of been done better and was making corrections in my head while watching it.
I am really grateful for Cyfle and S4C for giving me this chance, there was a time when i was close to giving up on media for many different reason’s but I had some good conversions with some good people and sat down and made a list of what i wanted to happen and now I can cross off one item on the list “Getting My Work On TV” even though its not what i thought it would be but I am glad and proud to cross off it off.
Last night I saw two idents that was made by our Cyfle Crew the ones i saw was the tetris and the jenga idents along with the graphic design made by one of us as well. Yet i still have not seen my babies on S4C but its early yet i have plenty of time to see my work on TV… I still haven’t seen the fantastic cat ident neither only on YouTube
Today I am working on my individual project to help promote Cyfle and i am doing this be claiming they are a company that is indoctrinating young media hopefuls so they can run the world what a conspiracy.
I am doing this by a variety of different things i have already made a quick video with messages with a hack theme throughout the video, I am also making a poster on PhotoShop of the cyfle logo with a hashtag but i am also doing interviews with the apprentices with hidden messages on there tags, All this is for the audience to follow and watch the videos and find the messages.
hopefully this will turn out like i hope it will but this is very ambitious.
This is a quick look into the event in London called power to the pixel this does include some nice photos.
This is a link of an article, which explains the Tro Ni week and involves some quotes from me which was taken out of context and some words were put in my mouth but its all cool!
