Thoughtful’s Christmas Speech

Hello, and Merry Christmas! Well, we made it. It’s Christmas Day and exactly one year since we set up in business. And only one person managed to say ‘That’s not very Thoughtful’ – which was a stick we knew people would beat us with, given the slightest opportunity. We’re sure this post will be achingly… Read more »

Our favourite xmas card this year…

They’ve illustrated a magical winter wonderland with various people that have been a part of 2007 for the two of them, and have set it to a great soundtrack.

Talking trash

Yesterday, we took a trip down to Mwnt beach in west Wales, to meet our friends at howies and talk about a project we’re all working on. After our beach meeting, we spent a few minutes picking up the litter which had been washed in, just a few hours before we arrived. Mwnt beach is… Read more »

Santa Run

Yesterday, Thoughtful took part in a Santa run around Salford Quays in aid of the BHF. It wasn’t a long distance to run (3km) for someone like James, who is used to doing regular 9-10 mile runs. But for someone who is just about used to running for the bus (Chris), it was a quite… Read more »

HOWIES invited us to the opening launch of their shop on Carnaby Street, London, yesterday. We’d seen pictures of the shop, but it’s even better in the flesh.

Computer says ‘No’

Morning, we’d like to offer our apologies to any Thoughtful blog readers out there who have tried to watch one of our movie clips over the weekend, and was denied access to them. We think the problem is down to our webhost blocking them for taking up too much bandwidth (we’ve been told before). We’ll… Read more »

Computer says ‘Oh go on then’

Our movie clips are back up now, hurrah! Apparently DAN GERMAIN is a popular guy, all the views his movie generated had locked out our server as the bandwidth wasn’t large enough, our webhost told us. If you tried to view it and couldn’t, sorry, it should be fine now. One at a time please!

Dan Germain’s talk

Here’s the talk Dan from innocent did on Wednesday. If you’re confused about the Borat comment at the start, there was a guy sat on the table in front of Dan who was a Borat impersonator. Dan got a bit worried that he’d rush the stage.
