A Logical BMX Step. A New Project

Dean Cueson Lawnmower

Today I am proud to announce a new venture that will be launching in the very near future. This website will be a combination of a past project and entirely new focus for BMX media. What’s in the Cookie Jar? The project will launch in August and will focus on people and their opinions and views on topics in an uncontrolled, raw, and unfiltered scenario. How they’re perceived is based on how they react. I will not allow anything or

The Great Video Debate

I’ve been one of the most critical people of vlogging in the past, but in recent years I’ve come to love the medium as a form of learning and entertainment. To me, a successful vlog needs to be put together well, have character, interesting topics and content with good flow. So why title this entry as “The Great Video Debate”? It all stems down to what I’ve said above, I’ve become a fan of vlogs, I follow many entrepreneurs, tech,

The Great Realisation

People are creatures of habit. They cling to things they know and repeat their mistakes over and over. I’ve only come to realise this recently and it is why I am on a desperate voyage to reprogram my train of thought and reactions to situations I see people walk into the same mistakes over and over. I am no exception to this. People crave attention, they beg for acceptance and to feel wanted when they’re at their lowest form. This leads

What Makes a Good Employee Quit?

Why Good Employees Quit

We live in an ever demanding time. We work more and earn less, our everyday essentials keep rising in price and we are under more and more pressure to deliver targets, exceed expectations in and out of the work environment. So what makes someone quit? Bad management I can’t stress enough that I have quit jobs in the past due to poor leadership and unwillingness to adapt. I have worked with companies that refuse to adopt new processes or technology

Obsession: Sam Hamer

Obsession Sam Hamer

What made me post this old gem? I was checking analytics and SEO business and while searching the rankings this popped up. I filmed this as a university (college + university degree) project for “online content” at the time I was already established in online media working for Vital BMX, but I wanted to branch out and try something different. I approached Sam Hamer who is a close friend of mine who I’ve known for many years about shooting a

Movimiento es Vida

Rainbow Bridge Tokyo

“Movimiento es Vida” – A simple Spanish saying that translates to “movement is life” this is something my friend told me and it hit home hard. We are not supposed to stay in the same place our entire lives. Movement and adventure enrich our lives and because of this, we cannot allow ourselves to become stale and complacent being in the same space for too long. Movement is something I’ve seriously lacked in the past four years. I have failed on

Relections

My BMX

How do you look at yourself knowing you’ve become something you dislike? How do you face up to the underlying fact that you weren’t the person you first spoke of, that your kindness deteriorated, your passion and love withered away with each passing moment? Then your own reflection becomes something that you can’t stand. This is something I’ve been battling with for the past month and further sparked by a heartbreaking and humiliating discovery. I have been a horrible person

Topokki – A little Taste of Korea

Amongst a flurry of Chinese restaurants in Birmingham lies a small but quirky Korean restaurant. I was first introduced to Topokki several years ago and it instantly became one of my favourite places to dine, so much so that I’d happily drive one hour to Birmingham just to sit down for a good meal. Atmosphere is something that can make or break a restaurant experience for me, upon entering you’re greeted by smiling staff who promptly ask how many are

Worcester Isn’t So Bad

Worcester isn't so bad?

One of the great things about the iPhone 7+ is the camera, I’ve found since owning it that I’ve been excited to take photos far more than I did with my 6. It makes taking photographs easy with its great picture quality, acceptable low light performance and the incredible, yet sometimes flawed “portrait mode”. So whenever the sun is shining, friends gather, or we take the dogs for a walk I have to make sure I take as many photos
