10 – Cardboard cut out pet costumes

What a brilliant idea. Grab an old cardboard box, a few coloured marker pens and your cat can instantly be anything from an astronaut to a Zulu warrior. There is much fun to be had with this I feel and I will be creating my superhero cat costumes as soon as this post is published.

9 – Cardboard clothes

If money is tight but you still want a new outfit to wear out at the weekend then make one from cardboard. If designer labels are your thing then take a look amongst the garbage behind the shopping mall for any boxes that once contained designer clothes. Take it home…

Who will be the top Danger Mouse? Alexander Armstrong vs David Jason


Great choices. What about bringing back Duckula? I’ve written an article to explain who I think should take on voice roles in a rebooted Duckula. Feel free to take a look if you have time…

He’s the greatest. He’s fantastic. Whenever there is danger he’ll be there.

But who is Danger Mouse? Between 1981 and 1994, the hugely popular Cosgrove Hall one-eyed rodent cartoon character was voiced by comedy legend David Jason.

Today, it has been announced, next year’s reboot will feature a new voice, that of Alexander Armstrong.

But who is the better of the two to voice the greatest super agent the world has ever seen? Rather than wait to see how Armstrong performs, let’s resolve this now…

The most famous?

You plonker: David Jason autobiography pages printed in new Bridget Jones book

Who do you think? (Picture: BBC)

This is a no brainer.

Sir David today is a knight of the realm and star of Only Fools And Horses, A Touch Of Frost and The Darling Buds Of May.

Armstrong is certainly famous as the host of quiz show Pointless, for his comedy work with Ben Miller and many other things but is less…

Count Duckula: Reboot Required…

It was reported this week that the classic British children’s cartoon, Danger Mouse, will be coming back to our screens in a rebooted version with Alexander Armstrong and Kevin Eldon as the voices of the two main characters.

Why stop with Danger Mouse? What about the other classic from the same creators? What about bringing back Count Duckula?

Who would I choose as the voices for the main characters for a rebooted Count Duckula..? (more…)

United We Stand: 10 Things I Love About My Country #8: Actor & Actresses


Another great country list from Mrs American pie. Love Whoopi Goldberg, still wish she would marry Peter Cushing. Also sad to see there’s no Drew Barrymore :(

Yay! Scotland didn’t break up with the UK! I do hope everybody gets what they want out of even having the referendum.

It’s Week 8(ish) for  Steve and Suzie and me! They’re spectacularly Scottish and awesomely English respectively, and I’m American, and here we are once again listing our favorite things about our countries. This week it’s actors and actresses! Also, from this point on, when I say “actors”, I mean “actors and actresses”.

I thought actors would be easy, but when I started mentally cataloguing my favorites, I ran into two problems. First, I don’t really do the Hollywood thing. I don’t watch that many movies anymore, having not a lot of spare time with two young children running underfoot. It’s a 2-ish hour commitment that I just can’t make when I could curl up with a book for 30 minutes and fall asleep. Second, I found my…
