Dear @tripodski, I know you're across the pond and it's a bit of a distance to travel even in those giant metal birds we call airplanes, but no matter what distance separates us I feel like we're in the same room. I know it's not physical because we would be creating or proving some amazing laws in physics to be so far and literally so close, but the point is I dig that headspace. Every time I see one of the sets you shot I feel like it was probably 90% just hanging out and 10% business getting the shoot done because the models always seem to be smiling and enjoying their time in front of the camera as if it might not have even been there from the start. Oh, the conversations you must have and the good times. You know, I would be the best damn assistant you ever had if you pointed me to a local coffee shop or needed a back that could carry equipment (or @hiptobes) and the Pod-Crew would hit the streets like a rap crew. We might not have gold chains and Lambos, but I'm quite sure we would look fly and hang out with lots of gorgeous ladies. I shouldn't be trying to score an awesome gig like that now, but can you blame me? I love your work, mate! The difference you make, the light you offer these women, the very zany things you probably discuss all make a huge difference for this site and I get to be one of the lucky ones to see the finished product. It might not be as much fun as what went into creating the content, but when you can see a little glimmer in their eyes or a smile that looks like it just came naturally after a silly discussion about cat videos (or any topic) then I know we're getting the genuine soul of the shoot. I just thought you should know I appreciate the fact that you're around to offer us so much with what you do. I think I'll go drop by and visit some more of your sets since I have a little free time this morning. Thanks. I love you man! Sincerely, Xander

Yes! Proper English tea! I have only ever had proper tea a few times with friends that travel and they always bring home baggage filled with tea from overseas. I know we get some imports here and brewing methods can differ (as does the taste of the water), but I love a good tea!

I am available at 24hrs notice @tripodski 😂

Still breaks my heart that Innocence and attitude by Amortentia never made it to the front page.

It's the most popular set of 2017 that wasn't a Set of the Day!

Really too bad, what an incredible set, it really doesn't make any sense but those numbers have definitely shown just how amazing that set is maybe soon but time will tell
hiptobes:
You have every right to feel heartbroken. It's a goddamn tragedy is what it is!
