I’m going to tell you a story…
Two decades ago, back when the term social media referred to the act of writing ones name on the side of the railway lines, I began my digital journey. It was a truly exciting time, the web was barely out of nappies and the humble Notepad was the only HTML editor of choice. But still I managed to build many great websites.
I have always had a great love of iconic TV/Film automobiles and their striking imagery so decided to create these minimalist posters featuring five famous vehicles from Breaking Bad, Starsky & Hutch, The A-Team, Mad Max and The Love Bug.
And so as Christmas looms large in the window and my latest hat experience comes to an end, what have we learned?
When I began this new #lovemyhat experience two weeks ago I was not afriad to admit that I was genuinely uneasy about it. Trilby’s and Baseball Caps were one thing, but a Pork Pie was not your typical hat choice. However, just as Walter’s confidence in his new situation starts to grow in Breaking Bad, so has mine in regards to the Pork Pie.
I am not in danger, Skyler. I am the danger. A guy opens his door and gets shot and you think that of me? No. I am the one who knocks!
I was out and about in London this week and while on my way to the ITV London Studios I bumped in to some fellow hat wearers.
It’s time for another season of #lovemyhat…
For those of you that remember, I previously blogged about my experience of wearing an ‘Indi‘ in today’s modern world and discovered a few things about both myself, and the people around me. Thanks again to the generosity of the fine fellows at Bates – Gentlemen’s Hatters, I am undertaking another millinery adventure.

Today, once again, social media proved itself to be the evolutionary superior of news when it scooped traditional outlets to the story of the Qatar Airways plane being escorted into Manchester airport by RAF fighter jets.
The story, which broke on social media…
Although let’s be honest, we’re talking about Twitter here as nobody ever found a story that was anywhere near ‘breaking’ on their Facebook feed…
The story, which broke on Twitter first by people who were actually ON THE PLANE, scooped the lumbering Brontosaurus like BBC by actual minutes. Clearly the time has come for these media dinosaurs to realise their extinction level event is upon them, and the in-depth investigations into corruption and their insistence on fact-checking has put them at a disadvantage in our brave new journalistic world.
