I got my Edwyn sunspecs courtesy of TV:AM! They used to do a feature at 7.55 where they showed a video of some gawd awful band but sometimes there was a little gem in there. One day it was Orange Juice. The competition question was `Where was Zeke born?` and the prize was a pair of sunglasses from the Flesh of My Flesh photo`s.

I duly sent in my answer and a week later my name was announced as the winner!! Oh, I was so made up. I waited for what seemed like an eternity for my prize to arrive. When they finally arrived they were too big for me. Gutted. I still have them somewhere but they have alas fallen apart.

I was more successful on the bootlace tie front. My mum used to work in that they used to call a gentlemens outfitter - for the discerning gentlemen. The guy who ran it also sold militaria and americana stuff so was able to get my bootlace ties cheap. I thought I looked the bees knees.

Those were the days.....

Cuban culture

Posted by Robyn Cross on April 8, 2021 at 17:49 0 Comments

Cuban culture is diverse mostly due to the influence of Asian, French, African, and Spanish migrants. The country has produced many eminent artists in various areas, including theater, dance, ballet, film, and literature.

Art Work and Bum Fuzz

Posted by scott owen on May 5, 2017 at 17:15 0 Comments

My Bum Fuzz unit just arrived in California along with some plectrums with Edwin art. It took me along time to order this unit, but the twenty five year gestation period for it to be built surely eclipses my lack of urgency. Best regards all...

Thank you for the music

A while back I asked Edwyn if he would let me use his music on a little film I made.  Here is the result: Mill Mechanics

Thanks for that.
