The Power of Film

Film is important:  And there are many reasons for this as it is such a vivid combination of so many arts; cinematography, music, sound design, editing, storytelling, acting…they all play a part in this unparalleled form of expression. It also possesses the sufficient wizardry required to transport us to faraway places and times – both physicallyContinue reading “The Power of Film”

Tokyo Tantrums

Japan ~ Tokyo – 2015 Tokyo has a big city sort of reputation to it, an air of grandeur accompanied with a sense of mystery somewhere within the non-stop luminous glare of the lights and the 24/7 rush… So many films have painted a picture that has made an impression on me, and because of this it wasContinue reading “Tokyo Tantrums”

Kids Go CRAZY.

So there was some weirdness today, as there is every day…actually it is so common place that I feel silly even reporting it to you – but nonetheless I will, as it got me thinking about something… You see I was in the soft play bit of the kindergarten school, and had probably just fellContinue reading “Kids Go CRAZY.”

Hot Wheels!

We made wooden cars in class the other day…and as we all know, science-backed scientific research has proven flame designs make any car go faster. So obviously mine was the fastest. Aaron’s really got the mean-mug look down! http://www.facebook.com/storytimewithjohn

Curse of the Ninja

Was reminded of this childhood memory by Melanie, after my previous post regarding childhood lies! When I was in primary school, like most kids my age – I used to love The Power Rangers. The kicking, the punching, the flipping, the monsters, and the explosions…I mean, the whole package appealed really. So it wasn’t a rare sight toContinue reading “Curse of the Ninja”

Batman Returns

You may not expect it, but as a kindergarten teacher – you have to be VERY aware of what you wear, on a daily basis. If you just slap on clothes, without a second thought…you are asking for trouble! Case in point, today I haphazardly threw on a Batman t-shirt, under an open shirt – without reallyContinue reading “Batman Returns”

Back to Bogies

This is the first of hopefully many new YouTube story videos – it’s a little resolution of mine to branch out, and try a new format…I hope you enjoy it, let me know either way – as it is a big learning process for me!  In this video I’m talking about my new kindergarten class,Continue reading “Back to Bogies”

Korean Kung-Fu Fighting

Oh my goodness! Look what I just found! I’d forgotten there was video! p.s. just a little side note – the reason I am moving so robotically, is that my boob piece thing was about to pop out, and my various weaponry was also threatening to fall out of my belt – so it wasContinue reading “Korean Kung-Fu Fighting”

똥침 (“Poop-Needle”)

There are always pros and cons to every big decision in life…and if you are a level-headed (ish) kind of person like me, it is best to think things over before jumping into something big. Like moving abroad for example, you do your research and find some other people’s thoughts on the place – theyContinue reading “똥침 (“Poop-Needle”)”
