The very talented @sillineysarah (Sarah Carroll) somehow managed to convince me to sing and dance for her.
I never claimed to be a singer or a dancer. If fact, anyone who has seen me attempt either will testify that this not as bad as usual.
It is a parody of the Robin Thicke explicit video for “Blurred Lines” which can be found on Vimeo and is basically the same but with naked models roaming around.
Please watch our version and like/share/tweet etc on Twitter/FaceBook/Down At The Library. If not to make me feel a little less humiliated, then for Sarah as she deserves a lot of credit for the things that she does.
A beautiful, young portrait of my Mum by Andy Zermanski.
2012 was not my best year. September 19th saw my Mum pass away after a short fight with illness. It came as a shock for our family. As we are not religious, my Mum had asked me to say a few words instead of having her funeral overseen by a stranger. She wanted me to do it because she thought I might be able to do it in a “happy way”. It was the most difficult thing I have had to do. My brother, Jason, and my sister, Kelly, helped out with the readings. I was proud of them and I hope we all did a job that Mum would have been proud of.
This is how I tried to remember her at the service.
