Days 3 & 4
Friday, Jan 20th: HomeSlice operate at Kings Cross Boulevard's Eat.St. on Friday's and as they had misplaced their ladle the Count decided to lend them one of mine. Off we trotted at 9:15am to get there in good time before they started serving pizza at 11am. On the way we visited The Guardian offices
|"They gave us Four Stars you know!"|
As we walked home we assessed a few more potential escape routes
Uploaded all the pics for 111 miles, wandered back over to Kings Cross just in time to help HomeSlice load up
Went back home and hung around waiting for my little brother, walked with him to the Arcola Theatre to show him where it was as he wanted to watch Count Oederland. Headed home again and on the way bumped into an old chum/overseer who is now part of a vegetable growing co-operative called Organic Lea. Had a quick drink with him. Grabbed a book and my tenant's camera and shot back off to the Arcola to see the Director re filming the show on the last day. Sadly he'd gone home, but I hung around till 11:30pm ish chatting to the cast and some audience members. Home again and bed!
Saturday, Jan 21st: Ran up to Broadway Market to see the Count Oederland poster in Stella Blunt's shop
Popped into Climpson's and elicited the reaction of "Oh F**K!" from a friend that works there! Not quite the reaction one hopes for when popping in to say hi to a chum... :D
I think it was because he'd forgotten to bring my cake box into work with him, although I didn't mind at all!
Whizzed home and sped over to the grocers to pick up a few cake ingredients so that I could bake a cake for the Oederland cast to scoff whilst we did the Get Out, but sadly I then took too long sorting out some other stuff and had to rush off to the theatre with the camera so that we could sort the filming out without having baked the cake. Never mind! Cast party next week...
Watched the cast warming up (filmed a little bit of it too!!)
Filmed the wide angle shots during the matinee performance. Downloaded the footage and recharged the battery and had a bite to eat in the break. Shot a few close ups during the evening performance.
Did the Get Out!!!
I was sent with the broken/dismantled stage and backdrop to Cricklewood where Jethro Compton of Belt Up Theatre was waiting to receive it. Off loaded and stacked it in his back garden.
Popped into my best buds house for a cup of tea, some pizza and a few hands of "Presidents & Arseholes" (what a name for a card game!), before heading home at around 4:30am. Crashed into bed at 5:30am and just woke up about an hour and a half ago... (1pm ish)
Now to go and take down all those Count Oederland posters I hung up!
Boooo Hoooo, I'm 9 miles short of my hoped for target of 150.
