Cornwall is so hot right now.

Specifically my bit of it.

Initial reactions to my photo on there: apparently I look: 'grubby', 'sneery', 'about to sneeze' and 'a bit like a homeless person'.

*feels a sudden strange sympathy for Posh Spice*





UPDATE: also: 'slightly unwashed' 'like you've got a cold', 'like a recovering drug addict'.

And from the look of your picture a bit sneery too, or are you about to sneeze?

Oli said...

Pretty sure it's raining in Truro... oh, right, hot. I see.

kaiki said...

proper job, james.

Jayne said...

You look very serious. And slightly grubby...

Skeadugenga said...

Take comfort from the fact that the writers are nowhere near as scary as the musicians....

Newbie said...

I love the grubby, just about to sneeze look, though I have to day you just don't look quite right without a blue cat sat on your shoulder.

Bring back the blue cat!

Newbie said...

Have to say, not have to day.

Damn commenting at work you have to type that much faster...

Anonymous said...

aww, i think the photo looks fine.

Loganoc said...

Hmmm, I think it's quite cute, although maybe slightly unwashed. Hey, youre an artist!

patroclus said...

I'm confused - is this like that bit in Arrested Development where Lindsay fancies a scruffy boho type, who turns out to be a homeless person, who turns out to be a rumpled sexgod actor researching the role of a homeless person?

Billy said...

Better than the writer with a great big out of focus head next to her own.

Jayne said...

Patroclus - I think it's more like that bit in The Simpsons where Homer gets mistaken for Bigfoot...

Occasional Poster of Comments said...

Ooh, bigfoot - I've got a housemate who looks like the bigfoot out of Harry and the Hendersons. Which would be Harry, I suppose. And, now I come to think of it, he does have very big feet...

Anyway, Creative Falmouth...

Erm, yeah, it's sort of a grainy* photo, isn't it? I mean, I know the photos have to be kind of low-defintion to load quickly, but surely not quite as low as that... Sorry about that. Well, I didn't arrange the photography... But anyway.


*which, I guess, is possibly why it looks sort of grubby to some people. Or did you have a cold? It does kind of make you look like you've got a cold.

[Seriously, in person, James is really quite well-groomed.]

Valerie said...

Wow, James, you're finally famous!

Just teasing... don't worry, you'll never be famous.

Seriously, what fun. This is much better than being Reader of the Week, which is my only current claim to fame. Plus, look at all the flattering comments you're getting!

Er, maybe I'm still kidding.

James Moran said...

And like Posh, your boobs look totally fake.

Actually, you look more like a recovering drug addict in one of those ads, "it took 14 doctors, 18 nurses, 593 care in the community experts etc etc to save james from himself". But in a totally cool and sexy way, of course.

"Falmouth probably has a higher density of creative
talent than any other coastal town in the UK."

I was about to be indignant about that sweeping statement but then I realised I didn't have anything to contest it. Llandudno? Rhyl? I'll shut up now.

patroclus said...

Yes, I thought that maybe some Brightonians might have something to say about that.

Falmouth is much lovelier than Brighton, though.

james henry said...

In conclusion then: I hate everyone.

Oli said...

Falmouth is much lovelier than Brighton, though.

Really? I'm very fond of them both. Falmouth has The Shed, Brighton has The Fish Bowl... *

*If there's a way of defining a town that doesn't involve it's drinking holes, by all means let me know.

james henry said...

I prefer Five Degrees West, partly because of nostalgia for when it was The Pirate and I used to waft about with backcombed hair and a Sheep On Drugs t-shirt, but nowadays more because it does a good steak and peppercorn sauce.

Oli said...

Yeah, but they gave me undercooked scallops the other day... that's far too specific for a screenwriting blog, isn't it?

Imo said...

Why can't I see any pictures, just lots of writing in pink.

cello said...

Everyone is so packaged, plastic and deodorised these days that a bit of ersatz sweat, snot, sebum and ... could that be ... dandruff makes you a 21st century sex god in anyone's book.

patroclus said...

While James is undoubtedly a 21st century sex god, I should reiterate OPC's point that in person he is actually really quite clean.

I like the crayfish tails best in the Five Degrees West.

james henry said...

I would request that the word 'sebum' makes no further appearances in this comments thread thank you.

cello said...

Oh, I know he's clean really. I've sniffed him. I just wanted to use the word 'sebum'. *run away*

Imo said...

Ahh now I see you. Obviously my firewall is so advanced it can filter out ersatz sweaty, snotty, s***m writer type people. Isn't it clever!

MSBlogsy said...

Just been re-named Martian on a legal docunment - should I tell them or just let them try to enforce it on me if necessary?

If it was warm in Truro on the 10th it's p'awful cold now and p'ing down here at the moment.
Just found this on i'net while googling...
With the launch of the latest range of Blomberg appliances by Turkish white goods giant Arcelik, the company believes it has brought the industry to a new ...
L.O.W....I would think!
Must be the latest try at getting into the E.U.!!!
