Knowledge pursues me but I am faster.......

If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, then baffle them with bullshit.......

.......One day, we will look back on this, laugh nervously, and change the subject…

Only in our dreams are we free. The rest of the time we need wages.

Bloodbath ends at Sprocket Towers,
(Hitchcock met Alcatraz),
Let Sprocket have his fantasy,
Kylie, and all she has!

I know I should do a linky to Sprocket's Birdman/Bloodbath posts but I am a little too busy ATM :(

Shoot London Opening Night

(viewed 973 times)
Mobloggers were triumphant
In the Shoot London Event,
You could almost say that
Inspiration was heaven sent.

Steph, the 'heavenly body'
And Nige the driving force,
With 095 and JC,
A winning team of course!

'Leica Virgin' too were up there,
Though not a pretty pass,
With our winning picture showing,
Joker sniffing at my arse!

The photos will be on display
Near Old Street at the Host,
June 9th to June 15th,
Who'll come and raise a toast?

The winning photos (among others) from Shoot London 2008 will be on display at the Host Gallery, I Honduras Street, London EC1Y 0TH, near Old Street from Monday 9th June to Saturday 15th June. The opening night is Tuesday 10th June, 6pm to 9pm (with free Tiger beer) ... Dave and I will be going along for the opening, anyone else interested?

Leica Virgin comes good ....

(viewed 1050 times)
yes, we pulled it off!

we climaxed early and our interpretation of Clue A ' This Friar can always smell the hops from his statuesque position' was declared winner ... it was very silly and we were all in hysterics over the out takes, the fact that no one ended up with a black eye and I nearly had Joker's nose up my bum is only part of the story ... we now have to wait for Joker's pic of the final outcome ...

1. Sweet Smell of Success, Clue J, proved to be prophetic!

2. I am Blue Condom Woman! ... I thought I looked rather fetching in my (colour co-ordinated raingear) until people started to refer to it as a blue (and somewhat overstretched, and therefore secondhand ) condom ...

3. 'Whoar' ...Just look at the pixels on that ...

4. The winning team celebrate ... and JC1000000 explains to SFG and SWMBO just where they went wrong ...

Well done everyone! .... but especially Nige and his team ..... Winner of Best Photograph and some nifty digital cameras .... BRILLIANT!

..... will post a winners' cartoon soon, just want to wait 'til all the bloggers involved post their pics .....

..... a great day, loved meeting everyone and chatting .....

.... oh yes, and all the pics are Dave's, I managed to Shoot London without taking one single photo ...

Thanks all, and the biggest thanks of all to Joker :)

(viewed 1240 times)
... and the biggest thanks of all must go to Joker ... It was he, single-handedly, that put together the book of my first 100 Moblog cartoons ... he designed the cover and the whole layout and sorted it out on Blurb in order to get it published ... I had the much easier task of indulging in my displacement activity and just doing the cartoons ....

... The book is dedicated to Alex (of course) and is being sold in order to raise money for ELF (the Elimination of Leukeamia Fund) .... I will add all the links later (that will explain who Alex was and how to buy the book) ... Sorry to say I am a little too busy at the moment (I am not very good with the clicky links) ... But for now just visit JokerXL's blog) ....

.... Oh yes, and I really would like to thank all the mobloggers that have been my victims (50+ at the last count) over the last (nearly) two years ... it has been fun ... and thanks for being such good sports ...

Shoot London and the Cans Festival ...

(viewed 1142 times)
OK, I am lazy, posting a Shoot London update with a pic from the Cans Festival.....

Shoot London ... we now have a theme .... the pic is meant to give you a clue ......

The Cans Festival .... worth a visit, we queued for 45 mins and spent an hour wandering up and down the (covered) road .... if you are into 'street art' and there was some of the very best, then I would recommend it. It's free, and is ever increasing as people can add their own. I have posted my favourite, OK, not stereotypical stencil art, but I just liked the way it suited the hewn away brickwork ..... l am sure lots of other Mobloggers will post their pics so don't feel I have to post more than my favourite .....
