Myself and fellow Bray cretin and Andre Nikitina fan Luke Broughan were given the savage opportunity of defacing numerous walls, halls and staircases of the Greystones Theatre for the Wicklow Live Artist's Fest that's happening this weekend coming. We were like scrubby Bray kids in sweet shops when we seen the scale of the area we were given to cover, so we got stuck in as best we could! Was rad collaborating with "the work horse" on such a large project, he just kept churning out a stream of radness, so much so that I could only find room on this blog for a fraction of what was produced. Its always easy to work when you're both feeling those ridiculous Niki-T bodhran beats.
The show opens this Friday eve around 6 with a slew of bands set to play the various stages in the theatre over the entire weekend.
I'm currently on the road as with my friend Al as he attempts a greuling skate from Ireland's most Southerly tip (Mizen Head) to Ireland's most Northerly tip (Malin Head) over 11 days all in aid of Muscular Dystrophy Ireland. I've taking up blogging duties for Al's mission and I'm also documenting the adventure to make a doumentary (duh). Daily progress can be foung over at the Skatinmizenmalin blog where you can also donate to a really really worthy cause, no amount to big or small, this charity is very worthy, spread the word if you can as awareness is very important, thanks!
About 5 years ago the corporate heads of The Boardroom industries asked me to create a special grape for a box social they were planning- I scoured the planet for the greatest grapes, moved to South Australia, acquired a vineyard, nurtured the grapes, squeezed them with my own feet and created this- Chateau Boardroom. They hated it, but said they'd keep the label..
After months of obsessive scribbling I'll be hitting the road for various reasons, one being the documentation of this amazing challenge Al Collins is taking on- He's attempting to skate from Mizen head, Ireland's most southerly tip, to Malin head, Ireland's most Northerly tip, in 10 days! All in aid of Muscular Dystrophy Ireland- What a champ!
I could rattle on about how great this is, but the vid I put together on my nice new camera explains all:
