Newsletter 87Hellooooooooooooo! And welcome to the 87th EVER update from rathergood! Hoorays!
We've got a wonderful thing for you today! Pop Stasi - Tainted Love! In Communist East Germany during the Cold War, the authorities decreed a Great Talent Contest! Pop Stasi was born! Here is Tainted Love, as it was performed in that glorious setting:
We made this for J2O because they've got a mixed up session going on. You should totally go to it. I'll be there. There's a link to the details on the video page.
I'm still putting stuff I've done to commission up on to the site – this week I've whacked up Genghis Khan by the Leningrad Cowboys, animated with kittens by me for Rather Good Videos for Channel 4:
It's a cracker of a song isn't it. I love the Leningrad Cowboys! They are BRILLIANT!
I've whacked some photos up on Flickr again this week – there's some photos from the Pop Stasi shoot here:
and some photos from my holiday in Dorset with the family here!
Woohoo! There's even photos of Zak driving a tractor! I bet you can't wait to see that! YEAH!
In other news, our official Olympic bid, via our official rathergood triathlete, Phil, is looking good.
Here's Phil talking about his last race:
Phil has been selected for Team GB! and then said thanks but no! Sounds like a stupid thing to do right? The story is a bit more complicated than that though. Full story on his blog here:
It's going to be great when Phil wins the Olympics for us. I'm really looking forward to that! Then you will have won the Olympics too! Because Phil is our OFFICIAL triathlete, and that means he is YOUR official triathlete! YEAH!
I also want to let you know that Emily Carter sent me this lovely picture- isn't it lovely!
Hoorays for Emily!
I think that's about it for this week, except to tell you that I love you. I LOVE YOU SO HARD IT HURTS!
Seriously, it really hurts. I think maybe I should go and see the doctor about it. Every time I think of you, it hurts, and this stuff comes out – it looks bad, smells even worse. It's quite embarrassing. I really should go and see a doctor. It can't be right.
Byeeeeeeeeeeeeeee love and kisses and superhugs OH GOD I LOVE YOU SO MUCH OW OWW OOOWWWW OUCH!
