I’m going to be working with my lovely (and gorgeous) friend Inge Blackman on a blogging project Channel 4 are running called 1-2-1. It’s pairing up British bloggers with people from similar backgrounds or with similar jobs in countries all over the world. So far they’ve paired British people up with people in Iran and […]
I, along with Hugh, Euan, Annie, Tom, Lloyd, Suw and Kevin, Adriana and about 30 others, saw a very early cut of David Mackenzie’s film, Hallam Foe, tonight. One word: Brilliant. I will pay to see this film AND buy it on DVD… and I’m not just pimping for Hugh here. ;) It was genuinely […]
I am still alive. Just preoccupied. I will be back shortly.
Next Tuesday I’m going to be on the Late Show with Jumoke Fashola on BBC Radio London talking about ‘technology addiction’. Here’s an article I wrote on the subject for Scarlett Magazine: ‘Addicted!’ My husband jokingly says as he walks back in the room to find me on my laptop after his minute-long bathroom break. […]
School started again today for my son. He’s been away from me for almost the whole summer. He got back on Sunday, so on Monday and Tuesday we went shopping to get school supplies and replacement bits of uniform (2 shirts, swimming cap, rain jacket…£78!!! Harrod’s Fricken School Uniform, innit?). Yesterday, we were buying black […]
I’m spending more and more time on YouTube. I thought I’d share some of my recent favourites. Adam Buxton of Adam and Joe fame. His Tiny TV Boss is not only very funny, but an accurate protrayal of British Television Executives. Film Maker Dot Com is the YouTube presence of The Media Lounge. You might […]
A while back I wrote about a friend of mine who had just been hired to do a professional blog. Someone at Conde Nast read her blogspot blog, loved it and decided to hire her to write a kind of Sex and the Single Blogger blog. My friend is very, very funny and considering that […]
Celebrating Peter’s 40th last night, I stumbled upon this look. What do you think?
via New York Times: In surveys conducted in 2005, people in the United States and 32 European countries were asked whether to respond ”true,” ”false” or ”not sure” to this statement: ”Human beings, as we know them, developed from earlier species of animals.” The same question was posed to Japanese adults in 2001. The United […]
God is God, right? By that I mean that the Christian God, the Jewish G*d, the Islamic God… they are all one in the same being. All three religions share similar stories, prophets, beliefs… Why then would this God tell different people different things? He tells the Jews they are His chosen people. He gives […]
Oh… and for all of you Brian-lovers out there, we’ve put up an interview with him on Sunshine…
This Sunday on the Heaven and Earth Show Brian will be arguing against right-wing Christian… Rick Wakeman… Heh.
I was interviewed for the ITV News tonight about film blogging and using the ‘net to promote films. *coughsnakesonaplanecough* Who knows if they’ll use any of the interview or not. All I really care about, of course, is getting Sunshine promoted. :) **edit** They wanted to push the idea that SoaP was going to be […]
It’s been like a fricken gardening programme round my house the past week or so… I’m not the keenest gardener. I enjoy my garden, but when I was doing 12 hours days, 6 days a week, the last thing I wanted to do was go outside and bloody *prune*. So my garden became all ‘Day […]
I haven’t been posting while we’ve been in Singapore mainly because I’ve been making this: Click to Watch Made with a Sanyo Xacti C6 and iMovie…
I’m in the sky… somewhere over Russia or the Middle East or India or something like that. I’m not exactly sure because I can’t be bothered to turn on my telly thing to find out… Everyone’s asleep. It’s 1.45am my time… I should sleep, too… lying flat…. and wake up in Singapore… Click to watch
