|Who booked her AND Springsteen? And why is she holding a loo brush? Blogites
with poor short~term memory (always the first thing to go) may not remember THIS
post where I went on and on about my Uni results. Acting as a sequel, of sorts, this post will continue in that self~congratulatory tone. (Well, seeing as there's no Doctor Who
on telly, what else am I gonna do?)
C'mon LiLo, embiggen your gob some more!
For the very
first time this year, the Film department are handing out prizes for students. I have been awarded the 'Lumiere Prize' for my film ABZ
. It has been awarded, and I'm quoting verbatim here, "in recognition of a piece of practice-based film course work which exhibits exemplary craft and originality."
Again, regular bloggons
will remember THIS
post where I detailed how the very same film was shown in the Aberdeen Art Gallery
for a few weeks.
Can a leper change her spots?
I should, at this juncture, remind you blogotrons
out there that this was only my third film (ever) so I feel particularly tightened in a certain trousicular
area. I have since found out the prize could have equally gone to my second film (made with a fellow student), In The Blink Of An Eye
- which is, if you ask me but you didn't though here's my opinion anyway, the better of the two. It was also a favourite of RAUL RUIZ
who has shown it a number of times. Still, at half an hour, the one chosen is certainly longer.
Never date a tennis player, love means nothing to them...
In telly news, which is what this blog used
to be about (before the dark times), there's nothing. Well, I say nothing
. The BBC's coverage of GLASTONBURY
was superb as was WIMBLEDON
Moving on. THAT MITCHELL & WEBB LOOK
continues to impress greatly and is shaping up to be their best series yet. So
many good sketches, too numerous to mention but I should point out that the extra stuff on the Red Button
(that's a digital 'interactive' feature for those who don't know) is sometimes better than the stuff they stick on the actual
programme. Top stuff.
Ritchie gleefully eyes a negative review that ain't about one of his abortions.Movie~wise,
I caught PUBLIC ENEMIES
despite 'starring' CAREY "Blink & You'll Miss Her (Do you see what I did there?)" MULLIGAN
this didn't quite do it for me. The HD digicam stuff was not nearly as clever as MICHAEL "The" MANN
thought it was. And more effin'
shaky~cam action?? Come on!
It did look great (though it was sometimes difficult to tell) but the performances didn't affect in any way with only BILLY "Looks A Bit Like Johnny Depp" CRUDUP
earning his paypacket. And when will Hollywood stop glamourising criminals and positioning authority figures as a~holes?
Ah well, the world turns.
Poker face? You bet I did!
'Til the next time,
