91: Road movie

Posted by The Joneses on September 6, 2007

Art house cinema – it takes me back. As a student I created a film entitled ‘Societies Rejects’ – it was a 7 hour continuous shot from the bottom of a rubbish bin as it filled up.

Unfortunately the first thing to be dropped in was a large cup of coke. It broke the record mechanism so most of the film was just black. Commercialism destroys art yet again.

Critical Viewing

Posted by Dawn Jones on September 6, 2007

I was five when my mum first took me to Cov Odeon. I remember thinking “I’ll never top that”. And I never did.

Love & Light,

Movie Pitch

Posted by Ian Jones on September 6, 2007

I’m wondering if Tina’s ‘The Road to Me’ will be sort of like Mad Max or more like Driving Miss Daisy. Maybe a bit of both.

Actually, that’s a good idea. A film about the post-apocalyptic chauffeur of a thousand-year-old woman who is the only person who can remember how things were before a disastrous event.

He has to protect her precious knowledge at all costs from massive gangs of robots, zombies and mutants.

That’s brilliant.

Dialogue

Posted by Dawn Jones on September 5, 2007

To be honest i’ve been fretting over conversing with high-brow arty types but I’have hit upon a plan – I’ll simply remain mute.

I’ll probably be accepted as enigmatic but if questionned, I’ll explain it away as a political protest.

Love & light

Twenty-Seven

Posted by Ian Jones on September 5, 2007

The M62 which throttles Manchester is the only Motorway in Britain that has exactly 27 junctions.

Dawn was driving at exactly 27mph around it to make a point, until I made the point that we were going to miss seeing Tina. She insisted I make the point 27 times in order for it to hit significance.

89: Back to Blighty

Posted by michaeljk on September 4, 2007

Back to Blighty. I return to England with mixed emotions.

For one, there are still siblings to meet in other countries; interesting characters, that for now, may not feature in my documentary.

On the other hand, I’ll be able to nip into Waitrose for my favourite Potato salad.

The Motion of the Ocean

Posted by Dawn Jones on September 4, 2007

My mind’s as restless as the sea. Wave upon wave of fears and torment.

Trust me, you wouldn’t want a paddle.

Last Crumbs

Posted by Ian Jones on September 4, 2007

My last meal on the continent was some Pelvus on that last bit of waffle from the water cooler.

No time for a pop stop.

88: The Windmills of her Mind

Posted by The Joneses on September 3, 2007

I’m not sure whose side to take on this argument. Neither I suppose.

A documentary film maker should always remain objective.

Maybe the windmill will have a calming influence.

Big bad brother

Posted by Ian Jones on September 3, 2007

I love Ian – goodness knows I do – but my word, he conceals razor sharp
tongue in that docile looking head.

His calm features do nothing to suggest the savage cruelty that he’s capable of. He’s like a human sea.

Love & Light

Signs And Portents

Posted by Ian Jones on September 3, 2007

What you looking at?

Something feels out of sorts in the cosmos.

Things – including me – feel a bit uncontrolled. Even nature looks wrong.

87: We drove all night

Posted by michaeljk on September 2, 2007

Cherry Ledojo, the man in the windmill and a late night dash to Holland – this is exciting.

Although I didn’t get any dinner and I don’t think those wiener’s and Pelvus sauce agree with me.

Storm Brewing

Posted by Dawn Jones on September 2, 2007

Something’s not right with Ian, I can sense it. His neck’s tensely rigid and his aura’s like a mucky puddle.

Love & Light,

86: Wim’s treat

Posted by michaeljk on September 1, 2007

I can’t say I’m a fan of the sauce, a little to rich for my taste but Wim’s a charismatic man.

I’m definitely re-visiting the polo neck/ suit jacket combo when I get home.
