No.79 Halloween is upon us

(viewed 902 times)
Halloween is upon us,
Cobwebs and ghostly dust,
Bat droppings in the belfry,
Door hinges left to rust.

With double duster action
And his fairy at his feet,
When it comes to cleaning up
Our Sprocket can't be beat!

Just put him in the scary house
And in a blinding flash,
He'll have it all spick and span
.... just let him have a bash!

Prompted by Sprocket's comments on a previous post of mine (No. 78 It's just that time of year).....

For Bronx Elf, Tim Roosen at the opening of the Strychin Gallery, London

Dropped in on the opening night of the Strychnin Gallery in East London on Friday, the opening exhibition, Kings and Queens and Childhood Dreams, had a couple of Bronx Elf's friend, Tim Roosen's artworks on display ... I met up with my sister (who lives locally) and went early, hoping to get the chance to see and photograph the exhibition ... however it filled up so quickly that I didn't get the opportunity to do either properly ....

1. Shhh .. The wasp queen wanted to keep this a secret ... but she failed ... The gallery was packed just half an hour after opening ... Wasp Queen by Virginie Ropars ...

2. On arrival

3. 'Royalty in Exile' one of two Tim Roosen artworks .... afraid I could not do it justice as it was hung very high up on the wall ...

4. The only shot I managed to get of Tim Roosen's other piece before the crowds descended ...

5. Close-up of the above .....

6. The crowd ....

7. I managed to grab a few minutes chat with the artist himself ...

No. 78 It's just that time of year ........

This moblogger is such fun
(He also can be scary)
Do not cross him on the road
(Of his MAN hood be wary)

He loves sport, with odd shaped balls,
He loves his beer and tucker,
A smart and loving family man
A right nice friendly _ _ _ _ _ _ _

As to the film's title,
You'll know it, never fear,
Just think of scary faces,
It's just that time of year ....

No. 77 Another Moblogger Film Poster Poser ....

(viewed 1229 times)
Looking through the listings,
A poster caught my eye,
For some bizarre reason
I'm reminded of this guy.

A regular moblogger,
Whose faces are not few
(one more than a handful)
Each with a different view.

Raised to the third power
(this Mr's really nice)
I think you might well guess it
(His shape's as cool as ice).

As to the film's title,
I'll give you just one clue,
This man's known for his babblings
(and that will have to do).

Am busy all day tomorrow so am posting early again ..... don't know how you dailymes do it ... a weaklyme is hard enough!

Another moblogger film poster poser .......

I was so impressed with Tori's

So much so that I thought I'd
Draw my cartoon version .....

No. 73 Beth has an Exhibition .....

(viewed 987 times)
Beth has an exhibition,
I'm sure it will be a delight,
In the Sela bar in Leeds,
It opens next Friday night ....


Mobloggers are bound to be there
Our Nige will be rocking by
Wearing his dangly earrings
And showing a well turned thigh*....

I've got my train ticket booked
And I'll be there on the night
I just need to find a map,
And get my directions right!

*OK, not sure about the thigh, but Nige has promised to bring the bling ;)

...... really looking forward to this :)

Have removed dog,
