A chap named Vermin Supreme is campaigning to be elected President of the United States. He promises to make toothbrushing terrifyingly mandatory and to solve the world’s energy problems with turbines that harness “the awesome power of zombies”.
He wears a gumboot for a hat and he’s still less alarming than Rick Santorum.
I’ve been pretty quiet on here since late last year when I started working on the Channel 4 programme Professor Green Unseen. Things got pretty crazy trying to direct, film and pretty much produce a six part series in the space of a couple of months.
One of the characters who seemed to come out of the show best was Lewis, an old friend of Stephen’s. [more]

The internet frequently makes me bemoan the state of the world. Hashtags make my soul want to cry, YouTube comments may as well be a countdown to the end of humanity as we know it and Lolcats is like looking directly into the diseased anus of Satan through an endoscope made of pure horror.
Seldom does anything go viral that gives me hope for mankind. And when it does, I don’t usually expect it to have anything to do with Will Smith. So imagine my surprise when I found out (late, probably, as usual) that some genius keeps sending fake sob story letters to religious TV channels based on the intro rap to ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’, then uploading the videos to YouTube.
Some of the TV presenters clock the joke, some don’t, and even when they do it’s often followed by more - see the prayers for ‘Carlton and Phil’ in the first video below and the Star Wars story in the second one: “I don’t think that is Biblical….”
Happy New Year from Second Son. Let’s hope 2012 doesn’t end in a catastrophic meltdown of riots, fundamentalists, nuclear proliferation, Justin Bieber’s rap career and nobody being able to afford new t-shirts.
We love puns. And sometimes the worst ones are the best. The ‘Trees’ tee features old botanical illustrations of trees and the words “Yew can’t cedar wood fir the trees”. I calculated the pun content of this sentence and it’s 71.4% pun. I’m not joking.
The ‘Top Son’ t-shirt is pretty self-explanatory really. Watching Top Gun was probably my first exposure to coolness, Aviator shades, sex scenes and riding motorbikes along aeroplane runways. On the downside, it was also my first exposure to a famous Scientologist of dubious mental stability. Either way, it had a cool logo. Perfect last-minute Christmas present - don’t sleep…
The ‘Framed’ t-shirt is adorned with a large print made up of genuine old Victorian border designs forming a concentric pattern with ‘SECOND SON’ written in the middle. These are on sale at £10 for one day only, so get your 15 minutes of frame (sorry) before it’s too late…
