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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

85: Taste test

Posted by michaeljk on August 31, 2007

A celebrity sibling, well at least in Germany. I still can’t work out if that’s a wink or a tick.

84b: Is that him?

Posted by michaeljk on August 30, 2007

I’m never sure if an isolated car park is the ideal place to meet a stranger.

84a: Sourcing Wim

Posted by michaeljk on August 30, 2007

If Ian hadn’t have bought those trousers where would we be?

A kind twist of fate – yes, but I’m not sitting next to him in the car if those trousers retain their charge.

81: Call it fate

Posted by michaeljk on August 26, 2007

My last memory of riding on a ski lift didn’t have a happy ending.
1989 – School trip to the Isle of Wight to see the Needles, I saw it as a perfect opportunity to ask a girl out. When she declined we spent the remaining 15 mins in silence.

79: Be Prepared

Posted by michaeljk on August 25, 2007

The great outdoors – my second home. As a senior patrol leader with the scouts I have vast experience on hiking, camping and survival. I don’t have any badges as I only completed the theory – but it can’t be that different.
