Welcome to the blog of Garry Hendry, featuring bits and bobs that I’ve written or taken photos of for the internet. Enjoy your stay!

You wouldn’t stare at lightbulbs! – Garry’s Toolkit – Part 1

The internet is full of all sorts of wonderful tools and websites that more people should know about! After sharing some of these with friends during recent uni group work, they suggested I should write a blog on them. And so, this mini-series was born! – just a...

Pop Danthology 2013 – UK Spotify Version

Tl;dr? Download the playlist here! While watching the excellent Pop Danthology 2013 (see below if you haven’t watched it!), one of the first things I wanted to do was make a Spotify playlist of it. So I did! The creator posted a second video listing all the...

Internship Tips From My Time at Disney

This post was  originally written for the Bournemouth University CMC Blog. Internships are funny, in that they vary so much between 6 weeks and 12 months, and every experience is very much an individual one. The thing they all have in common, though, is that they are...

“I Love It – feat. Charli XCX” – a review

Sometimes, when you’re listening to a song, you mis-hear the lyrics. It might be a case that you didn’t catch what was sung, or it might not actually be that clear on the recording. Eitherway, when you think you’ve missed something, looking up the...

An Open Letter to Sony

Dear Sony, I’ll start off by saying this: I love your products, I really do. I have a Sony phone and camera and a Bravia TV in the living room. I used to have a VAIO laptop until the screen snapped off, but that doesn’t matter right now. I’m writing...

Guerilla advertising at it’s finest.

There was a strange moment when Deloitte announced that the 41 Comet stores that would be closing by the end of November were now going to start a ‘Closing Down Sale’ – isn’t that what was already happening?! Anyway, that aside, I thought...

My First Star Trails!

Okay, so I only actually took one long-exposure shot (I didn’t want to be outside for too long!), but still, my first star trail photo! Yesterday was a suitably chilly evening with a completely clear sky, so I thought I’d head out with the camera and see...

Who’s Bad? My Day on the Tube

Usually when someone starts shouting, pointing and twisting rapidly around on an underground carriage, you keep your eyes rooted firmly to the floor or newspaper and just hope that it goes away soon. By and large, that’s what we did when a man in a red jumper...

Chocolates – A Poem of Tradgedy

I was inspired to write this by a tragic scene I saw on the way home from work this evening (boredom may also have been an element at play). Either way, this tale needs no further introduction: Chocolates by Garry Hendry As I was heading home from work and walking...

Goodbye Summer, We Barely Knew You!

And so it seems almost as quickly as it came, Summer 2012 is officially over. I’m not talking about a summer of sport here, I’m talking about the weather. How typically British. Anyway, on a suitably chilly evening just before the Met Office issued weather...

There’s a Reason This App Was Free…

The official 2012 Who Wants to be Millionaire game is apparently aware of something we weren’t – Berlusconi, who was ousted last year, is Italy’s PM again. It also asked whether the next Olympics would be held in 2011 or 2014. When you add that to...

The £25 Money Printer

This shouldn’t be a news story, but it is. The blogosphere is going NUTS at the moment over the newly announced cure for all known diseases iPhone 5, but there has been some attention drawn to the new docking port. Going down from 30 pins to 8 enraged some, but...
