Hellooooooooo! And welcome to the 116th EVER newsletter from rathergood!
The big news this week is that we've made a new TV ad for Crusha, with the kittens at the roller disco. Have a look, it's lovely!http://www.rathergood.com/rollerkittens
The shoot didn't go entirely smoothly. I've got a couple of out-takes from the day, things that didn't go entirely to plan! In this take, Errol was supposed to glide gracefully past the camera on his roller skates but he totally misjudged it!http://www.rathergood.com/camera_smash
Ouch! In this take, the bottle of Crusha came down to fast, with disastrous results! Poor Errol!http://www.rathergood.com/bottle_smash
Poor cow as well! No-one was hurt though, it's OK. No need to worry.
In other news, our Axolotl Song has been very popular! It was featured on the ever-wonderful Attack Of The Show at their number 1 spot:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSo4DNQN05M
It was also on NBC Chicago- have a look:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQf7jqb_6Og
In personal news this week, I have completely lost my voice- it's been gone for a whole week! Also, Zak has got chicken pox. THE POX! It's all fun here at rathergood towers, I can tell you.
I think that's about it for today, except to tell you how much I love you! I love you really HARD! I love you so hard I'd make my special soup for you! My special soup that is actually a massive 650lb jellyfish, 12 feet across! With its delicious aroma of rancid rotting jellyfish you won't be able to resist it! It's so delicious! Especially the stingers! They're like hot chilli, in that eating them hurts a lot! I've just eaten one of my special soups and my larynx is a mass of venom-soaked welts! That's how I lost my voice!
The main difference between my soup and a chilli is the regular cardiac arrests from the massive dose of venom, so I'm wired up to a defibrillator. Seems to be working so far.
You are going to LOVE my special soup! You LUCKY LUCKY THING!
Hey, yesterday I found out that leeches are annelids, like worms. Did you know that? I always thought of them as blood-sucking slug things, rather than as carnivorous hell worms. So there you go! Sweet!
Ooh, also, I'm in need of studio space for me and my glamorous musical assistant Ed in the Shoreditch / Hackney areas of London. Anyone got any good tips? Drop me an email if you have eh?
Mwah mwah extrasuperduperhugs! Turbokisses!
