Ryan Aire – Musician & Artist

Here is another one of the films I worked on at Uni.

This is a short documentary about Ryan Aire, a Yorkshire chap with a penchant for Cream, art and budgerigars.

The answer

The answer to yesterdays conundrum was

I found the cottage cheese in the fresh meat section. Because, yes, that is the first place you would think of looking for cottage cheese. I am obviously stupid. I will go and kill myself right away.

Its another one of those days where things don’t go as planned. I had intended on swatting up for my exam but people and things just get in the way. Which means that as I had planned a whole day swatting I will now be spending a whole half day swatting instead.

I’ve lost half a day. Damn me and my procrastination. Though I have managed to listen to the whole of Portishead’s Third album about 6 times and, further to this, managed to learn about Gauntlet, Chomsky and Adorno. None of whom will probably come up on the exam. I hate exams.

Homework club

Does Gauntlett’s (1998) article about media effects mean there is no point in looking at them? Discuss

Because Brierley is made of cheese and the electricity is generated by bees in a sock. We frequently have powercuts. They are frequently badly timed.

I’m afraid I have still far too much work to do so postings will be kept to a bare minimum. Of course you know how to get hold of me should you need to.

Now sod off, some of us have got to write about Public Service Broadcasting.


What a Day

Good and Bad things happened today.

😦 it was bloody cold which wasn’t too good.
🙂 The class tomorrow which I’ve been stressing about over the seminar I had to give has been cancelled (which frees me up somewhat tomorrow :-))
😦 The dipped light on the Mondeo doesn’t want to work
🙂 In attempting to fix the light I fixed the heated seats
😦 Just before I was going to have my tea next door called and asked if I could pick him up because he’d broken down
🙂 It was fun driving to the rescue
😦 On the way back the Fiesta got a puncture
🙂 I’m feeling happy about things in general.


>Cake

You know when you’re baking a cake (yes, baking. That’s what people did BT (Before Tescos)) and it fills your kitchen with the lovely aroma of cakey goodness but you can’t take it out of the oven yet because it’s not ready and otherwise it will be ruined?

Well that’s what my 4 minute film is like. Its cooking really nicely (in a metaphorical sense) and it looks first class. However there is still one piece of film to add before the final edition. I’m really really pleased with it. Moreover I’m in a quandary. Next year I have to choose, film & radio or writing & radio. There is no option for writing and film. I really want to do writing and film.

Radio is arse. Don’t get me wrong. I enjoy the radio module, but in the UK unless you’ve got experience in a live radio situation you’ve got as much chance of getting a job in radio as Rabbi Moses Goldsburgstien has of becoming Pope. In effect it is of no consequence. But I’m going to bring it up at my next personal tutorial.

Also today, I started my magazine cover. The assignment brief asks for us to design a full page cover of a magazine catering for young people (16-25…ageist bastards) and so I’m going to do Young Foodie which will cover Local food issues for young people….or something like that.

Last night the wife and I dined on finest Broad Close Farm Shop Pork and Apple Sausages. They were accompanied by mashed potato (made by the wife) and cabbage with an onion and mushroom jus (gravy). If I say so myself they were bloody good sausages! The gravy was also spot on. However the bacon we bought from Hazelhead Hall seems to be off. So I doubt we’ll be going there again.

I’ve been watching Juno too…..
