Bompas & Parr’s – Architectural Punchbowl

4 12 2009


Next week in London is a 3-day extravaganza that is going to be A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.
How do you fancy seeing an entire room being flooded with punch?! Even better – you get to drink said punch and even float across it on a giant slice of orange peel!

Bonkers.

The guys behind it are Sam Bompas and Harry Parr – better known as Bompas & Parr – Jellymongers and there are still tickets available for Wednesday 9th December.

The video (produced by yours truly) gives only a hint of what to expect…

Cheers!





Fancy Rewinding to the 80’s?

24 11 2009

Over the summer i took my narrow boat on a journey of discovery to Henley-on-Thames. Not just an idle jaunt, it was in fact to visit the 80’s Rewind Festival with a couple of friends.

I can honestly say it was one of the best festival i’ve been to – and i’ve been to Glastonbury, V, Phoenix, Isle of Wight, Secret Garden, White Air, Guildford (okay – Guildford Festival wasn’t really much competition but you get the gist)

As well as the weather being absolutely glorious and the obvious comfort of mooring my home at the edge of the site – there was also a great atmosphere, no hassles and nearly everyone made an attempt to dress in an 80’s vibe.

Hair crop

The other week i had an audition for the part of a 1940’s newsreader/presenter. In order to get into character it was suggested that we bring along a 1940’s style outfit – maybe a blouse and skirt or a wartime uniform – so the producers could really see what we’d look like as the part.

Well. Not being one to do things by half – i really got into character! I bought an original 1940’s dress from Rokit in Covent Garden. I had my hair done in a FANTASTIC 1940’s style by Natasha at Lipstick & Curls AND she also did my make-up AMAZINGLY!

Hey hey!  Last weekend was Roll Britannia. There was lots of Derby love (along with a few bumps and bruises) and of course, a man dressed as banana.

Roll Britannia is the FIRST European Roller Derby tournament.

In all, 12 teams took part from across England, Scotland and Germany.  Out of the 12, 4 made it through to the Sunday finals and they were –

Freestyle Football is my new favourite thing (watching it rather than attempting it). A while back i interviewed Oli Hayes on the Southbank for a Japanese show called Earth TV. I also cut a shorter piece to be entered into the RedBull Reporter competition – have a look at the video to see his (and my) skills in action-
