Judging by the items in the shop window,   EXtreme urban clothing involves brightly coloured trousers, t-shirts, shirts and trainers.   Compared to the black and grey commuters on the London tube,   this is indeed extreme….

EXtreme apologies

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009 | tags: , , , , ,  |


Delivering apologies is a local (English)  fine-art form.   The 90 second video above was  filmed exclusively by the Wendy House Audio-wideo Team (WHAT!)  before the arrival of Thomas (soppy SIGH).     It includes a First Great Western (FGW) Reading platform announcer delivering  ordinary apologies followed by the first of what turned out to be multiple extreme aoplogies.   Lisen for the stylish use of a contemporary xylophone solo ‘bing-bong-BING’ .   I had literally hours of fun that morning on Reading train station.

Well done FGW,   a fine example of extreme apologies.

EXtreme gardening

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009 | tags: , ,  |

allergic reactionOn a sunny April weekend   post-youngster  Brits launch into the  highly risky business of  sculpting their garden.   This weekend I fell victim to the under-publicised gardening health hazards.   Not  a muscle problem from lifting, digging and carrying,  or falling over a garden ornament,   but   a  little arm-blush reaction to a local ant.  


Kids,   beware the garden,   its a jungle out there

EXtreme grand piano

Friday, February 23rd, 2007 | tags: ,  |

Unlike extreme ironing,  EXtreme crocket,   and extreme tiddly-winks, extreme grand piano playing  is not YET a considered an extreme sport.    But,   Extreme piano playing is a sport though it doesn’t require risky locations like the aforementioned extremities.  

I  was drawn to this stairwell by the sound of a slightly miss-tuned piano playing the flight of the Bumble Bee  “recognizable for its frantic pace “.   Normally piped music in Mall’s has a slow pace.   The speed with the off-tune piano made the music feel out of place,   a little cheeky.   Hoorah!   The positioning of the Piano half way up the stairs added to the miss placed experience.  

Could this be the dawning of extreme grand pianism?
