We went to see Journey to the Centre of the Earth.... 3-D!!!!!!!!

(I must make it clear here that we actually went to see Batman but he was pretty sold out so we had to make a quick decision on what else to see. I was pretty happy as I'd already been demanding we see this Brendan Fraser classic, but I'm not sure Anders was as happy with the swap!)

Anyway, I just wanted to say that 3-D films are amazing. I wish they made everything in 3-D. The film itself was alright, pretty standard kids adventure film with some good bits, but seeing it in a room full of people wearing Risky Business style dark glasses and in glorious technicolour 3-D is just brilliant.

I suggested we buy a 3-D video camera and remake our favourite films in 3-D. Essentially it would be a 3-D remake of Be Kind Rewind, which has a nice symmetry to it. I'd make The Goonies, and Big (imagine the trampoline bit!). I reckon Anders would make Delicatessen, which would be pretty creepy!

Anyway, I'm rambling now when all I really wanted to say was: "isn't 3-D great?"!

Photo Link

Hi Everyone!

Well the Hello-Thor-Dan-T-exhibition-launch-night went fantastically well. The work looked great and the Ox & Lamb performance was something really special. The prints are selling like hot cakes and the projections look wonderful. If you haven't had chance to get down to the Hand & Heart and see it yet then go today or tomorrow as it's nearly at the end of its run! I think Joe's Musical Circus is on tonight so you could kill 3 birds with one stone... see some music... see some art... eat some cake. Tha Hand & Heart really is a great venue, I'd heartily recommend it to anyone who hasn't been down yet.

Anyway, here's a link to the photos. Go take a peek!

Here's a sneak preview:

p.s. Did you see Fists at Splendour? We couldn't go and were really gutted, but I'd love to know what you thought if you saw them. You can leave comments below.

Dan T's Inferno! THIS FRIDAY!

Now I wish I could lay claim to that headline but the praise all has to go to Nick from Hello Thor. He's clearly in the wrong job. He should be working for The Sun with skills like that.

So anyway, just a quick note to let you know about the exhibition, private view, performance happening later this week:

Hello Thor presents...DAN TOPOROWSKI
With a very special opening night performance from OX & LAMB
@ The Hand & Heart Gallery, Derby Road, Nottingham
Friday 18th July (8pm-11pm) Free

An exhibition with our very favourite artist - illustrator, animator extraordinaire and Nottingham legend Dan Toporowski. The man behind the Black PiƱata comic, and countless Supernight and Hello Thor visuals, Dan T's work takes you on a ride that might make you afraid, but that might also make you laugh your arse off. Check out his YouTube site to see what we mean.

He calls what he does "super-doodling". Other people have called him "Dr Frankenstein with a pencil case". We think he's AWESOME. Come down to the Hand & Heart Gallery and see for yourself. Dan's got a stash of never seen before visual treats up his sleeve - all new animations and one-off prints.

Dan T's inferno will be on at the Hand Heart Gallery until Saturday 26th July, but make sure you come along on Friday 18th July (8pm-11pm) for the opening party - it WILL be a belter. Ox & Lamb, the brand new Fists side project, will be playing live to accompany Dan's films. Only their second ever performance, expect sweet harmonies and a big bag of beautiful slightly bruised lo-fi pop.

And it doesn't end there my friends...join us for the after party @ Moog featuring Yeah, I'll Play It Later DJ's and, with a bit of luck, some cake (until 3am)!

So that's what's going down. It's all free and it's all going to be amazing. I'm hoping they'll let me play some records at the party. And when I say play some records I mean choose them and dance behind the DJ booth like I'm really cool while someone else actually plays them.

So much fun


Just wanted to share a few photos from recent times. Ever noticed how sometimes fun just creeps up on you, and you don't even realise how much fun you've been having till you look back?

I think this last picture shows that we were literally having all the fun there was to have in the whole world.
