I made a video that was intended for the promotion of the ‘Perpetual Noise’ mix and in the description I started putting in some highlights. It got a little out of control and so I thought I’d also put them here as a kind of ‘link-dump’ post.
So I did plenty of other stuff this year, but these are some things that I’d consider to be some direct offshoots of this project of mine. I decided to write ‘Oh, hey remember…’ at the start of them all because I’m hilarious and nonchalant.
Oh, hey, remember when I wrote a post for Hackflash to try and explain what I was up to?
Oh, hey, remember how I’m the jingle writer and performer for the View From The Ninian podcast?
Oh, hey, remember how Ross and I did some science songs and a questions video (in two parts)?

Oh, hey, remember when I had about 3 subscribers and Hallie proved that she was awesome and showed me that YouTube was a lovely place to be?
Oh, hey, remember when I released a novel and it was mainly down to some excellent YouTubers (namely Lizzie, Cece, Hallie, Jenn and a bunch of others) that word got out about it and that my BlogTV show and book giveaway were a (albeit small) success?
Oh, hey, remember when Jenn did a ‘Jenn’s Friends’ video about me?
Oh, hey, remember when I wrote a blog post for We Are Cardiff about stuff?
Oh, hey, remember when I wrote a song with a bunch of people at the Made In Roath festival and then did my first proper gig?
Oh, hey remember when I wrote a blog post for RoathCardiff.net about that?
Oh, hey, remember when Kayley used one of my songs in two videos of hers and sent about 300 new subscribers my way in 2 days?
Oh, hey, remember how I was in a few collab albums and one advent calender (the first two of which were raising money for Toys For Tots and This Star Won’t Go Out and were part of the Project For Awesome) with a bunch of brilliant musician folk which you can still buy?
Oh, hey, remember how I did a Vokle show and a bunch of people showed up and it was fun (be warned the sound quality is a bit rubbish (which no one told me about at the time!) and the first ten minutes is silence because I was still setting up and sorting out and was waiting for people but wasn’t fussed enough to actually tell people to come along).
Oh, hey, remember how another song I wrote that wasn’t part of the project was commissioned by Geekpop?
Oh, hey, remember when these people made music videos for some of my songs?
Oh, hey, remember when I tried to sum everything up in a blog post?
A bunch of other stuff happened this year, of course, (I even actually did other stuff that didn’t happen online. I know. Weird.) but these were the ones that seem to have immediately come to mind. If there’s an obvious one screaming out that anyone notices then let me know!
Thanks to all of these people and anyone else that I should also be thanking. Just generally being around was often helpful enough. Ta.
