That man was once a king,
Until he lost everything.


But I actually had a dream last night that I was telling somebody about the Snickers commercial, and I woke up and I went to the bathroom to get some water, and they were all in there, just kind of shaking their heads with disapproval. So I won’t do that. Which leaves us with kind of limited options. So I thought I’d take you to craft services.

(April Fools 2017) ANNOUNCEMENT: Today is a truly historic occasion, like if the moon landing had happened simultaneously with the invention of toaster waffles.

Over the last year, I’ve noticed an unusual trend  – there’s a surprising overlap in followers between the two main blogs I run.

On SDM, I riff on hilarious & bizarre things I find in Scooby-Doo episodes…

Like these glorious faces.

…and on PhotoC4, I post the street photography, surrealism, and lots more that I shoot.

Like this scenic view of the time-space continuum.

Despite their differences, a huge number of people follow both blogs, and have to split their time between the two. 

Each day, followers waste entire tens of seconds consuming the two’s content individually. It’s massively inefficient, and really, I can’t help but feel bad.

It’s about time I fixed it. Introducing…


It’s so catchy… the title and logo combination took weeks to perfect.

Now,  these are extremely-different types of content, and some “scientists” say that oil and water don’t mix.

You know what I say, so-called scientists? You just haven’t been mixing hard enough.

At long last, we can all have Shaggy & Scooby’s empty, defeated grimaces combined with postmodern monochromatic abstraction, just the way they were intended to be.

On the future of the photographical craft, Ansel Adams once said “For me the future of the image is going to be in electronic form… you will see perfectly beautiful images on an electronic screen. And I’d say that would be very handsome.“ 

If only he had envisioned combining Scooby-Doo with it, true perfection might have been achieved within the medium decades ago.

So, get ready – tonight will be full of posts demonstrating the true potential of ScoobyPhotoDooMisC4Takes, and the future of all art and comedy as we know it.
