Melly new year peeps.
Who’s got a cough?
We’ve all got a fucking cough. London Cough fam. Just set foot in this city and you’ll get a cough.
Koff. Koff. Khhh. Kkhhughh.
Dry or chesty? Dry of course.
Beechams Veno. Covonia Dry & Tickly. Numark Simple Linctus. Pavacol D. Benylin Mucas. Robitussin Dry. Drowsy. Close your eyes. Drowsy. Movies in my mind. Hot sheet shuffle. Drenching sweats.
Just lay off the Night Nurse. It’s like feeding Gizmo after midnight. Really bad things happen. Goonies never say Night Nurse.
And I don’t wanna hear any meek, apologetic coughs. Handkerchief. Excuse me sir. Nah. Get a rudeboy cough. Cough like General Levy would. Koff koff hiccup incredible general hiccup koff.
Anyhow we are very happy to announce that the director Bob Harlow now rides for Somesuch & Co. You can make looky at his showreel here.
During my years at Atlantic I worked with Bob numerous times. He’s a kindred spirit - a suburban guttersnipe who spent his youth in car parks with a camera stuck to his face, sent to earth to film his mates skateboarding. Everyone knows that this is the best way to become wicked at directing. We’re mad excited to be representing him. Seen.
Bob will hate me for posting this, but here’s some early noughties footage of him whizz-planking. Watch it. Raw. Strictly Mini-DV. No three chip business. Highlights? Well, the three flip ender down the Shell Center Six is obviously banging. But the Southbank Seven kickflip is the very definition of bolts. It’s probably more bolts than this.
Rewind. Strap a majoun zoot and watch it again.
Bob has just finished a video for Best Coast. You’ll be able to watch the shit out of it next week.
Here’s an artist’s impression of what 2011 might be like for the industry.
Yeah Verne. Mo’ money mo’ problems. Has anyone actually watched his sex tape?
Also why aren’t there any midget directors? Sorry I mean Little People directors. If you’re little, a person and a film maker then text me.
I’ve always wondered what the difference between a dwarf and a midget is. Basically yeah, a dwarf is someone that is well smaller than a normal person, but-all-in-proportion well smaller, yeah, and a midget is basically well small but with a normal sized body, but well short arms and legs. And a massive penis. What? Just saying. Shit. You were all thinking it anyway.
I guess some people will be turning their attention to America this year. Hope it works out.
Whatever 2011 holds for you may it be wicked.
