Hello everyone, I have not posted anything in a while because Jammy Toast has been so full of content from others that there has not been the space for me. Look at me now, however, getting to post on Christmas Eve. I have been really busy the last week or so wracking my brain for ideas. Davidd said he was getting bored with our existing logo and it was time to come up with a new one. He also said he wanted some sort of hole in the black band where our logo sits up at the top with the logo bursting through the hole – maybe a rip or tear in the background, he suggested. That is all well and good on a white background – some of the effects look stunning on a white background – but it just doesn’t work when the background is black or dark. This was going to take some working out.
Many moons ago, here on Jammy Toast, we used to make our own music videos. Many songs we wanted to feature on the blog didn’t have a video for us to “borrow”, so we resorted to making our own. So in 2009, we found a couple of Spanish bears who we rescued via eBay. Unfortunately when they arrived here at Jammy Toast they were a little homesick. Their names were – and still are for that matter – Enriquo and Enrique. The two are twins and so to celebrate their birthday, and to make them feel more at home, Egginanoo made them a special Spanish themed video. The video was for The Gypsy Kings song called “No Volvere”.
Hello again all you Jammy Toasters. That seems to be a new generic name for people who read our blog and I have to admit I quite like it. I don’t mind being referred to as a Toaster, I even think it is quite funny. It may have been Lestly who started it off, I can’t quite remember. Anyway, I would just like to offer my apologies for the gap between my posts. When I checked, I noticed it has been over twelve months since I last posted something art related, so maybe I am not a Toaster anymore after all. In reality I have been doing other things but I just don’t seem to get the chance. Other people are more loud and vociferous than I am and so they get there first. I am only writing this now because Davidd came and asked me. However, I will try my best to post things more often.
Iknow many of you will find this hard to believe but we have received a number of complaints recently concerning our Weather Forecasting service. Needless to say, wherever there is any complaining to be done, then The Chimpton is usually at the forefront of said complainants. We have been called sexist – as if – for showing pictures of young ladies (or in one case a ladyboy, if popular rumour is to be believed) reacting to the cold. So Chimpton suggested that we also feature a weather forecast featuring scantily glad males. This is, of course, ridiculous because the male body does not react to the cold in the same way as a female body does – so that idea was mute.
Hello everyone, my name is Egginanoo Bear and I have not posted anything here on Jammy Toast for ages. I love art and usually do drawings and even have a gallery of my work here on Jammy Toast put just lately I seem to have been side-lined. I have said before that I think that the only reason I have my gallery is so they can post something on the days they can’t think of anything to write about. This has kind of backfired on me because they have been very busy posting things and there is no place for ‘writer’s block’ here at Jammy Toast – they are a very creative bunch.
Happy New Year and welcome to Jammy Toast. If you have been here before then welcome back but if you are a new visitor then make yourselves at home. Whoever you are, wherever you are from, we are always welcome here at Jammy Toast. If this is your first visit then let me introduce ourselves. Here at Jammy Toast we save bears who have been cast adrift into the hands of charity shops and car boot or eBay sales. All these bears need is a happy family home to make them feel loved and wanted – this is where we step in. Our job here at Jammy Toast is to save bears and provide them with a happy home where they can watch daytime telly and play on the internet.
Hello everyone, my name is Egginanoo Bear and I have been selected to contribute to Jammy Toast. Edward has said I can have my own regular posts to feature my artwork. Personally, I think he just couldn’t be bothered finding anything to write about every day and so decided he needed a scape goat, but I am still pleased about it. I love drawing and it really was great when I used to draw for the old Jammy Toast when many people would say such nice things about my work. It does get difficult though, because once everyone compliments my drawings then I have to try even harder next time to produce even better drawings.
