Pretty much everyone you meet has an influence upon your life. Sometimes you will notice the direct consequences more than others. These two cruised up in the year 2000 and moored their boat next door, working hard as a team, partying hard as a team, making the most of every opportunity they could and having an awesome life. Inviting me to VJ while they took turns as DJ at their club nights and involving me in their design and music production certainly pushed me forward. This last new years eve I VJ’d for superstar DJ, SASHA, at Brixton Academy and couldn’t help thinking back 13 years to the first new years eve party I performed and supplied all the visuals for, thanks to these guys. I also considered trust how many important people in my life I met through them. More than that though I consider what they were actually doing at the time I knew them and this influences me even now, they were living as frugally as London would allow, investing time and energy into their future and their plan to move to Australia and start a family. I found this photo of them on Facebook the other day and see they still have an influence, look at them still working hard as a team, partying hard as a team, raising their many children in a happy and comfortable situation that they planned and achieved together and clearly still having an awesome life.
