Najo, Saturday 26/11/11 Ahhhhhh >>
.... for a Sunday!
This morning I was up at 8.30 and on the phone to daughter (who was staying with her chum) at 9.00am. Today was the day that the final scenes were captured for her music video.
We were due to be at Belfast City Hall at 10.30 but somehow ended up running a little late. We made it at about 10.45 and the half dozen mates she was meeting who were appearing as extras in the video were frozen stiff. It was baltic at the City Hall. There's something about the way the wind blows down Donegall Place and meets Chichester Street that just acts like a freezer at this time of year.
We meandered round to Victoria Square where we met the producer and director. That is where I beat a hasty retreat. While the wind doesn't howl around that square and it was several degrees warmer I wasn't needed and happily went back to the car and made my way back home.
By all accounts the shoot went well and the video should be fit for public consumption in a couple of weeks.<fingerscrossed>
I filled the washing machine a few times and read a few journals on site. I'm a bit disturbed that someone has upset Ivan. I don't know why anyone would want to do that because he's one of the most decent types there are hereabouts or anywhere in the world probably, so why would somebody hurt him so much that he'd consider leaving.
I have no idea what upset him but if I knew who you were I'd let you have my for free.
Anyway, during my search for what upset Ivan I see there's still rather a lot of whinging going on. It's very disappointing that while some people are knocking their pans in to keep this venture up and running that others seem intent on bringing it down and then bemoaning it's passing.*tsk*
I'd like to thank everybody who is still working hard to keep this place on line and performing so well.
I'd also like to ask Ivan not to go.
The music video sounds exciting. When the time comes, will we get a link to somewhere we can see it?
'knocking their pans' is an expression I've never heard before.
Oh yes Sol, I'll post a link - probably in a journal.
It must be a very local expression - knocking your pan in is working very, very hard, however, you can knock someone else's pan in (physical violence). I don't know the origin but you knock your pan in if you've worked so hard you feel as if someone has given you a good hiding.
