From a Small Clothes closet to a Cozy Room


I'm quite pleased with my long Summer project of transforming my small clothes closet
into an extra little spare room. And last weekend I went about building a book shelf
cabinet which I fitted on to the back wall. And it does seem to add some charm to
this small space. Perhaps with a more comfy chair and it would make a nice reading room.
Of course I still keep that fold up bed in there as the room is also a guest room.
And yes those shelf candles are battery operated. We don't want any accidents.

Further down below are a few pictures of the room building and transformation.

Vintage Chat Show Anecdotes

Above: Two British actors no longer with us, Oliver Reed and
Richard Harris, share a few anecdotes on The Michael Parkinson
show back in 1973.
Oliver Reed conveys a story on how George Bernard Shaw was
propositioned by a young socialite at a cocktail party.
While Richard Harris reflects back to the time on the set of that great
troubled movie Mutiny on the Bounty and how the star of the
film Marlon Brando had problems remembering his lines.

I suppose for some fans of vintage tv it must seem strange seeing
Oliver Reed completely sober on a tv chat show as he was well
known for turning up completely plastered while sipping from
a large jug of vodka and orange as he famously once did on
The Michael Aspel show back in the late 1980's.

Above video was taken from The Best of Parkinson.

An Unearthly Beauty...Andrei Dobrin

Above:  Romanian beauty Andrei Dobrin beautifully captured by Spanish
photographer Daniel Cao, and looking once again almost Medusa like with
his wild hair. He even looks like someone from one of those great 15th century
Renaissance masterpieces by Michelangelo or Leonardo Da Vinci.

It was only two years ago that Andrei exploded on to the model scene at only 16
when he got noticed straight away. In fact I was reading his interview from 2 years
ago with Models dot com where he talks about his likes and hopes for the future.
And when asked what was the best thing about his hometown and country (Romania)
he replied by saying "The best thing here is that you can relax in the mountainside
and meet Dracula." Well he was only 16 then.

My Cabinet Console.... A Test Video.


Below is a slightly disappointing test video of my home built Console which was
originally a vintage cabinet. I think this video was the fourth one I filmed.
And it looks like the new phone I recently bought is a bit of a letdown. It won't
even film in low light and with only 8GB of internal memory I'm lucky if 

I can film anything over three minutes.
What I don't get with a lot of these phones is that if you buy one with only 8GB of
internal memory they actually already use up 7GB due to the preloaded apps,
apps that I don't even need, one or two which I did indeed get rid off.

But the answer and solution might lie in reverting to my Lumix stills camera as it
has a HD built in video camera, and a good one too. So I've downloaded what I'm
guessing most people use and that's Windows Movie Maker.
So hopefully once I'm able to work it all out then I can make videos without all
the stress.


The original blog post of this building project can be seen HERE.


 Above & Below: Evening low light images of the Console. Something
my stills HD Video camera can capture, but sadly not my
phone.
Although the one and only saving grace of the phone is that
it has a video stabilizer, a vital facility that Youtube sadly withdrew.



Above: The start of the project last year.
