Time to thrill (hmmm) some creative male types by immortalising them in the Ooh la Lapin hall of fame that is BWDIW!
Its nice that requests have started coming in, so if you have any suggestions drop me a line. Well without further ado…
Its Luke Moore
Well were do I start? Not only does Luke have awesome taste in music and you can find his wit and wisdom here, but he is also a writer, broadcaster and producer. He makes football fun for total heathens like myself and I love The Football Ramble that Luke co-founded. Through pretty much starting recording in a kitchen he is now doing something he loves and thats what its all about. his bio reads as…
Luke is passionate about football, music and his beloved Portsmouth FC.
Having made contributions to the likes of BBC Radio 5 Live, BBC Radio London, ESPN, Sky News, talkSPORT, Clash Magazine, IGN.com, Gigwise and football365, he’s carved out a niche for himself as a a hirsute and erudite pundit, writer and broadcaster.
Luke we salute you sir!
Puss-In-Boots by Lee Casey
Next up is Mr Lee Casey, an illustrator and all round good chap. Check out his work Casey JR Illustration a small taste of this hard working artist. Lee gets involved with the creative scene regularly and is helping to make Portsmouth a fucking awesome place to be as a creative. Good work!
pretty much a genius
This guy is a photographer its Jamie McGregor Smith.
handy with a camera
Jamie is a UK photographer most noted for his work of buildings, landscape, industry and almost a kind of quiet beauty.
Above is Jamies prize winning photo for Urban Wildlife.
‘Gaining access to this derelict room symbolised the adversity overcome by this plant. As I peered in and saw the fresh fern fronds, backlit by sunshine streaming through the window, its colour and sense of life seemed exaggerated by the room’s grim, drab appearance. Against all odds the fern was thriving, gaining nourishment from the decomposing floorboards.’ Ferns, along with lichens and mosses, are often the first plants to colonise new or harsh environments. They grow in sites that sometimes aren’t ready for flowering plants, shrubs or trees because of poor soil or a lack of nutrients. By creating soil as they decompose, ferns change the local environmental conditions, making them more suitable for other plant species to follow.
This next guy is an absolute hero of mine and inspiration! Danny MacAskill.
Rides like a wizard
You may or may nor know that I dabble in some Mountain biking, a bit of jumping, downhilling etc. So when I first saw Danny’s video that blew up on youtube I could hardly speak! I was just like WATCH THIS and then you’ll understand. Danny just keeps going from strength to strength doing something he bloody loves and enjoying it. If I ever had a chance to meet Danny I would be so stoked it would be untrue!
Danny has been nominated as adventurer of the year by National Geographic so go vote for him!
This is the video that started it all…
