Compiled and edited by Rosemary Davis 1971
You are listening to...
SIDE 2: BAND 7 - TOYS. 'mama' Doll (0.23)
BBC records RED 104M Stereo
I was looking for a festive sound effect when i came across this rather useless sound effect. There's a faint echo after each toot which made me smirk.
Can't think why anyone would want it, but if you're desperate you can find it here - enjoy!

Now this is pretty exciting news for me. Coldplay have just announced that they have become patrons of ClientEarth (international environmental lawyers) and as part of their new partnership a short video presentation has been rolled out to all of their friends and fans across the world introducing the work of ClientEarth.
Exciting for me because the video was put together for ClientEarth by little old Sean Alexander and myself.
Update: Video went public 2 hours ago... it's been watched 26,166 people in 98 countries...

How I wish I were Tom.
I had too much fun cutting this up. Thanks to Jack Elliott for catching Tom Winterton at his best.
On the 18th June I handed over my ID badge to the powers that be at Yeovil College along side about 50 other members of staff, who had all either volunteered or had been volunteered, to assist with the latest government spending cuts... luckily, I'm a busy boy and I left of my own accord.
Therefore I am now (at long last) a full time free lance animator!
YAY! Unfortunately I don't seem to be doing much animating at the moment, but I am making a lot of websites. Last Monday I was up in London running a workshop for two groups of Urban Pioneers, a educational project run by the fabulous Ruby Wright with Tom Keeley for the Architecture Foundation.
I was commission to build two new sites for their Battersea and Upper Lee Valley programmes that could be updated easily by the young Pioneers themselves to keep an on going record of their work.
The workshop was a great success and to my delight the Pioneers (who were all very cool) have been independently banging out content and uploading pictures to their respective sites already!! It's super exciting to see a content management website that you have designed being used by the people you designed it for - seeing it filling up with content as if by magic without having to type anything else yourself - awesome!!
I also had the pleasure of visiting The Union Street Orchard, another Architecture Foundation project which was a real delight and inspiration to see. If you are in the the SE1 area before 19th September I would well recommend a visit!

Yay! He's Back! The Electric Stallion will be in the Beach and Barnicott, Bridport on Friday 16th July 2010.
He will also have some records with him.
My lovely and talented friend Ruth Ducker gets this week's big wet kiss for sending me this fantastic video
made by CIRKUS animation - it's inspired! It tells you everything you'll ever need to know about the animation process and how to be a great client... all we need now is one made for website design!
So if you're thinking of commissioning me to do some animation - be sure to have a look at this first!
