A mad preacher by the name of Paul Epton once said I had the ability to make girls fall in love with me! Like I said though, he was mad.
I don’t have any secrets or magic potions, and unlike the folk of the Wirral Christian Centre once believed, I am not sent by the devil to do nasty evil things, I’m just this guy, called Simon Jones.
So who am I then? Well that’s probably explained better on a whole load of other websites, so in order to avoid having to write a load of stuff I’ve written before I’ll just link to my various different sites below. You can read a brief description of the site, then take your life in your hands and click on a link should you dare.
I decided to create a site about who I am, however I didn’t want it to be ‘run of the mill’ in any way and I think this page has been the single most commented on web page I have ever created! Explore this page because there is more to it than meets the eye.
Started back in 1997 when I was working at the University of Liverpool, this is an online collection of slot site reviews written by me simply because I wanted to write. Originally known as ‘Meanwhile Back in Reality’ the name was shorted to ‘Meanwhile’ when I took up writing again after a short break.
Point and Click America
This is a little website I created while on a train from Seattle to Portland. It was simply a way I could share pictures from my trip to the USA with my friends around the world.
simon jones photography
While I am no prize winning photographer I have managed to sell my photographic services and photographs over the last couple of years. Until recently I didn’t have a site devoted exclusively to this string of the creative bow, now I do.
Short movies made for the web just for fun. Some are dumb, others are a little bit more ‘artsy’ but all are made with just my video camera, my Mac and iMovie.
American Reality Radio
In 1999 I took a hand held tape recorder to the States in order to capture some audio sound bites from my trip as I couldn’t afford a video camera at the time! I ended up creating this site and some ‘MTV’ style radio shorts for my friends to listen to online. I would tape the shows then edit them on my laptop ready for my friends back in the UK to listen to that evening!
Inspired by the site above I continued making ‘Reality Radio’ shows for a while. A second series in America was recorded as well as other shows covering various events like an eclipse and a wedding in Ireland.
MELT web studio
Thanks to help from my brother, the web design agency MELT was formed back in early 1998. It’s been paying my bills ever since despite the abundance of the ‘have-a-go-hero’ web designers out there armed with nothing more than copy of Dreamweaver and an ability to talk frugal people out of their money.
This site goes way back. It features pictures I have taken in and around Liverpool and the Wirral peninsula. The pictures can be sent as electronic greeting cards and in some cases downloaded and used as desktop pictures.
Simon Jones doesn’t like cricket!
