The frozen north

Got up at 6am to  drive up to Edinburgh. Dodged the traffic and made pretty good time stopped for a sleep north of Kendall at about lunchtime.

And it's freezing! 10 degrees here, 18 degrees everywhere else today.

Got here about 4 o'clock. Had a phone call on the way up telling me that part of our shoot has been cancelled and moved down to Birmingham which is - annoying.

And then I have to do the drive down again to do a quick bit of R1. They say travel broadens the mind, just as long as I don't lose mine along the way.

It's official, summer is here, British Summertime cutting my weekend short by an hour. London is great in the sunshine - still one of  my favourite places in the world. Can't wait to have a pint in the sun. Mum and dad are heading to Margate. Bit optimistic!

Been cracking on with RBS stuff, filming in London then up to  Edinburgh this week. Volunteered to drive the kit up there while  everyone else flies. Need to get an early start for the drive but will have more daylight in the morning now at least.

Already looking forward to easter. Don't know if I'll get much of a break but its another bank holiday, so RBS should be quiet. Belinda (sister) is coming over that weekend, having canceled her Himalayas trip so should be cool.

Gearing up

Looking forward to this week. Got the RBS shoots starting, with a showbiz theme - different guys appearing as Sly in Rocky, Steve MacQueen in Bullitt. Will try and get things shot for shot. Gave me an excuse to go back and watch a load of old  DVDS..   We're piling a load of guys into a bed for a Monkees parody - should be good. Still can't quite believe they're going ahead with this -  I thought they'd tell me I was barking! Nice to find a client as mad as me. :-)

Hey hey - it's official/. I own my own name. Got yesterday and with a bit of help from Dan and after a few tries hooked it up to this blog. I'm now a fully qualified web resident - about time really. I'll call in a few favours and get more nobs and buttons added as we go.

Don't know if you're interested, but I was making bloggish notes over the last few weeks so here they are.

I've been doing this job for a big bank, don't  know if i should say which, and its been interesting. Keeping me busy anyway. Looks like it will run for a couple of months at least and they're up for some imaginative video bits - I'll see how far I  can push them!

Also doing the ad for APITS. Nice to look back over all the rushes. Could use some sun right now.

Gave up on the tee-total thing, managed a whole month so pretty happy definitely feeling the benefit.

Been having fun doing the next set of vodcasts at R1. Nice to have a quick turnaround like this -  shoot it, edit it, stick it online in a few days. It's the future I tell you. Good laugh as well. Should be a regular thing, but will have to fit it round RBS.

They turned out to be up for fun stuff as well. Should be doing some silly things with bankers - will look good, I hope. Never easy to make these things entertaining, but they know that. Probably have sat through enough awards dinners to know how painful they can be.

Going crazy at home thanks to  thee builders next door. Every house on this street is  getting their loft turned into bedrooms - not a bad idea I've had a look at my own and thought about it - but the noise is nuts. I think it's the same team of builders working their way along. Thought about going out there and offering to help just to speed  them up.


This is a test for my new weblog!


In April and May 2007, I claimed there was a cover-up at the BBC to do with the words 'Frozen Indigo Angel'. It was all part of an Alternate Reality Game run by Radio 1 and the guys behind Perplex City - in fact, I encountered a character or two from Perplex City myself.

During the game, we gave away tickets to the Big Weekend, musical instruments belonging to major bands, and introduced thousands of people to a whole new world. All for free.

If you'd like to re-live the adventure, check out my first video, and then watch the rest.
