Lil froggy


A froggy in soggy. Monosyllabic these days.

Lil Resolute









Newly-married Resolute has been on Jeju for a few days, and he's seen his share of insanity already - a knife-wielding/leopard-print underwear wearing drunken insane Korean man, twisted local crab-castration murals, a stalking Sling Blade with a crooked grin, a dog t-boning a taxi, and a water-boarding rack in a park, which he promptly fell out of. Did a little norae-banging (with Cougar Candy and a sleepy lil angel), but the weather's been too crap to really scoot-venture. Balls. Ode skoo!

Lil Kompasu


So there's another typhoon bearing down on Jeju, this one a big 'un. Bring it! On the crap side, my bud Resolute is here, and this storm is most likely gonna mess with his flights outta this fair land. And, in other news, Korea is dumb and stupid all at once.

Lil new best socks


Foot in mouth.

Lil dead Japanese White-eye


Life is such. Feeling shredded these days.

Lil Carrion Crow


Did some horribly humid and massively mosquito-y birding last weekend.

Lil greenwash


"Peace, another name for Jeju" - I guess that's why they're putting a massive fucking NAVAL BASE on Jeju. Retards. Ah, wait, it's an 'eco-friendly naval base', so ok, I guess that's fine.

Lil manimals




I like these animalfaces. In fact, I'm gonna be a Tigerhead when I grow up. Lightningy on Jeju at the moment. A heavy rain squall effed up my dish last night, spoiling a particularly tense moment of 'River Monsters' for me. I love that damn show, Jeremy Wade da man. I'm gearing up for the fall birding season, gonna head out in the morn for a look round my patch. Dipped on a storm-blown Bulwer's Petrel a couple of weeks ago - it was a Korea first, which would have been nice.

Lil misery (Bright Eyes - Lover I Don't Have to Love)


Still effin' hot and humid on the Jeju. Resolute is coming on Saturday for a few days, it'll be his first time in Asia. I'm gonna make him eat and drink outlandishly yucky things, and tell him they're normal and to stop being such a bitch.
Booked an alternate trip for late September with Cobain, should be a ripper. I'm being soothed by the stern British war documentary narrator again. Ahhh, the B-29 Superfortress, please tell me more.

Lil sea urchin soup


It was viscous and so urchiny.

Lil Brits (Arctic Monkeys - Riot Van)


Guilty pleasure.

(I've no idea where those 3 little rectangles came from, or what they're about. It's all very X-Files)

Lil assbears


Now, I'm a guy who usually notices things. Well, usually. Ok, sometimes. Alright, I charge through life squinting through a pinhole in a paper bag. That being said, you'd think I would have noticed something important, like the fact that I've been wiping my ass with smiling bears for a year and a half. Nope, just noticed today. Wow. Bears on my shit tickets - you just blew my mind. Hey bears, you won't be smiling in about 3 minutes, cuz I ate some dodgy jiggae tonight. Boom.

Lil dragonfly


First time I've seen a dragonfly in Korea that wasn't having sex, innit.

Lil Brown-eared Bulbul


Juvenile, that is. Did some birding today, felt good. I've gone out a few times over the past few months with little results - it's been muggy, and most birds are in silent/drab nesting mode in the summer. Today though, I smelled something in the wind. It was birds.

Lil randoms






Jeju is still purty, I'll give her that. I haven't read a book in so long, I think my brain is goo. Or, my brain is such goo, that I haven't read a book in ages. Either way, it sucks. "All work and no play, something something."

Lil yucky flaky bits of skin


So tyrann-e got a little too much sun last week, and ever since then, I've been treated to a constant blizzard of peeled, yucky skin, everywhere in my tiny apartment. There are two distinct types of yucky skin flake: The Twisty, and The Mega-Flake. This damned yucky skin is all over. tyrann-e can be seen busily sweeping up fist-sized snowdrifts of the shit several times a day, but it never seems to make a dent in the ever-present skin-piles. He's like a snake, shedding.
In better news, the morning soccer is back on, which is good, because I need to sweat and run and wheeze, badly.

Lil small cat


She's little, and she likes to eat the bugs.

Lil big pup


This roofdawg pops up and watches over the streets below. The boys and I watch him watch us watch him while we sit outside of our favorite bar, Family Mart.

Lil graphic

We've all had days like this.

Lil slice o hell


I ranted about this outlandish and misplaced bit of suburban hell last year, but it keeps getting bigger. It is, very literally, in the middle of nowhere. There is nothing of any kind anywhere near this place, other than trees. Koreans make me laugh sometimes. Well, all the time.
Ah, so I was havin' a brew at a Family Mart recently, as I do, and I grabbed a boiled egg from the boiled egg part of the fridge. I cracked it open, and instead of finding a delicious boiled egg, a raw eggy mess fell out. It was the saddest thing I ever saw.

Lil Chompy


Chompy McChomperson. Creepers like this guy and Lil Atlas are actually big business in Korea. Excitable little Korean kids shell out the bucks for these bugs in a jar, then they proceed to torture them to death, or whatever.

Lil typhoon update






Dianmu came and went a few days ago. It was cool being in the eye for a couple of calm hours, then back to the old wind n rain. We checked out the normally dry Eongtto falls the next day, and it was going off gangbusters. Jungmun beach was destroyed by masses of garbage and seaweed covered in strange phallic creatures. Not many swimmers.
As is usual, I'm tired. A local watering hole was clogged with strange northsiders last night. South side! White cloud, ugh.

Lil spider


It looked like your average jumping spider, but significantly bigger.
The Golden Orb Weavers are out, but still small. By late September, they'll be as big as a baby's head.

Lil unsafe


I was praying dad would have to slam on the brakes, cleaving his two idiot sons clean in half. It would go "SSSSSSK!"

Lil windy






The old typoooon is almost upon Jeju, and I'm lovin' it. I got smoked and soaked on my roof checking it out this morn, and my shorties got all wet. Good. It's shaping up to be a pugnacious, ugly storm. video
