okay, i'm stilll trying to redesign this blog a bit. i would have done more last night, but i had to go to a bob log III concert.
if you haven't heard of him, he's quite an interesting guy. he's a one man band who wears a pilot's helmet with a telephone attached to it and sort of plays techno skiffle. last night he got 4 girls from the audience to sit on his knees whilst he played a quite complicated guitar part whilst still managing to sing and play the drums with his feet - impressive stuff.
the guy supporting him - thomas truax - was also quite impressive because he made his own instruments and had constructed a beat machine out of an old bike, and had a swiss-army instrument called the 'stringaling' made out of a bongo and various other things, and another weird thing called a 'hornicator.' check him out if he's in your town.
whilst i appear to be promoting things, i did some writing for a kid's show called 'sarah and duck' which seems to be doing quite well at the moment.
apparently it's "like the twin peaks of CBeebies."
as you've probably guessed from the title, it's about a sarah and a duck. bear in mind it is for quite young children (so unfortunately most of my satanic references got taken out), but it's very sweet and has a lot of charm to it, so i'm glad it's doing well. it's been sold to quite a few countries now as well, so if you're 4 years old or are thinking about becoming a 4 year old - or are maybe just a bit stoned, you should definitely check it out.
i might even post some of the bits i wrote which had to be taken out - as long as they don't give any of the story away, as i had to sign some legal thing with the bbc saying i wouldn't do that.
