I'll just let your vision regain focus for a second before belting into this big old bag of excitement nubs...

YES, my Edinburgh poster exists and I think it might be my meisterwerk. At this point it is MUCH better than my show but apparently "there's plenty of time".

What this means is that tickets are officially on sale at the EdFringe website should you wish to guarantee yourself a seat at what people are already calling A Show At The 2016 Edinburgh Fringe.

It's at 2pm at Just The Tonic Caves 'Up The Road' (that's the name of the room). It's FREE to get in (there will be a bucket collection at the end like the Free Fringe) but if you want to reserve a seat you can do so for £5. HOW EXCITING.

I can only imagine the amount of questions going through your mind right now, so luckily I documented the process that led to this INCREDOPOSTER for the latest episode of DIE TRYING, your favourite niche YouTube series:

How do you spend your Mondays? Me? Oh yeah I basically run around all day shouting about dragons then lock myself in a room editing until 10pm when everyone is fizzing from the new Game Of Thrones (UK broadcast) and unleash my thoughts in a review/recap/reaction format. This week I roped in comedian, GoT expert and all-round smashing Khaleesi Rachel Parris to help me. Look at it!

Well as one season turns into two others within the space of an hour (classic British weather bants), so continues the bi-weekly (in the fortnightly sense) roller-coaster ride that is DIE TRYING. This episode I put on my investigative hat (it's a trucker cap with beer can holders) and delve 'deep' into the world of fashion. Specifically, What I Wear Onstage. Should I dress like a 'grown-up' in a 'suit' (no need for those quotes) or continue to dress like the confused teenager I so clearly am? (hint: I'm typing this in skinny jeans & a pop-punk band t-shirt)

I don't know if you've seen any publicity for it (it's been pretty low-key) but GAME OF THRONES is back on our (premium-subscription) screens. On what seems like an almost weekly basis. As such, my Great Idea of Making An Unnecessarily Elaborate Reaction Video In One Day has really come back to bite me in the buttocks literally every Monday since (this week's low-rent tomfoolery took nearly 10 hours!). Ideally you'll be a fan of GoT and then watch these vids and make my life feel worthwhile. SIMPLE.

Too many videos for one post + GAME OF THRONES SEO ABUSE

Welcome watchers of illusion, I hope you're all doing well and didn't get caught in the freak snowstorm that hit the UK this week. I didn't see it so am convinced it's a rouse. I guess maybe it's true, winter is coming. But more on that later, y'bastards.

I'm very aware of not wanting to 'flood' anyones 'inbox' with these updates, but the longer apart I leave them the larger the backlog of Stuff I Have To Hawk To You. And by 'hawk' I mean 'politely suggest you watch to make my life worthwhile'. Good fun. Deep breath, lets's get into it...

In terms of Cranking Out Content, as I believe no-one calls it, it's been a ferocious month. My mid-life crisis disguised as compelling documentary DIE TRYING is going great guns, featuring celebrity cameos, stressful reality-checks and trips to the seaside like you wouldn't believe. Well BELIEVE IT BABY because there's 2 new episodes for you to get your teeth into:

In further filmic action, this month I decided to challenge myself to make something 'topical' and 'funny' that might be able to feature on, oh i don't know, a topical comedy yoof tv show on ITV2 for example. Well, it was an adventure and turned out nothing like I expected but I learnt a lot. Not about news, as planned, but that's by the by.

AND IT DOESN'T END THERE when it really clearly should. In what can only be described as a WHIM, I decided to make a video about the new episode of Game Of Thrones ON THE SAME DAY IT AIRED IN THE UK. The subtext of the video is definitely 'finding ways to avoid writing an Edinburgh show' but if you're a GoT fan (and you've seen S6E1 - MEGA SPOILERS WITHIN) then come join me in the realm of dragons and #fannymagic. I *will* get that trending.

Ok, that's it for now, I really do have to work on my Edinburgh show. Hopefully next time I can include a ticket link and by the power of the Gods old and new, maybe even the poster WHICH WILL BLOW YOUR MIND/INFILTRATE YOUR NIGHTMARES. Happy sleeps!
