INFINITE WHONIVERSES 4TH ANNIVERSARY

IW 4TH ANNIVERSARY- YAY!!

Mr. Tiglet's Blog

IW55THIt occurred to me that I haven’t actually planned anything for the IW Fourth Anniversary this weekend; in fact this is a bit of a last-minute blogpost itself.

The story intended- THE ARTEFACT I’ve changed a few details of and may either be the 55th Special or Christmas story, Who knows?

So, the Series 5 finale is up next week- a couple of changes, but the end is the same as when I initially planned it for the end of 2016. So I am looking forward to presenting that next week- in the meantime, here’s the very first post from 2014-

Ian’s Travelblogs no more- Beyond 6th anniversary

tvp6aTigletverse Travel and Photography- update

I’ve been reading a bunch of old blogposts from 2011/2012. I did a lot of hiking back then, also writing up where I went to as well. That was before the video blogging, or Vlogging on Youtube.

I’ve never got the time these days, nor an organising principle to get myself, err, organised!

So, I merged both Tiglet’s Travels and ITA in 2016, creating Tigletverse Travel and Photography, with one Facebook page (please Like!) and not much up on Pinterest. BUT NOW ON FLICKR! With Wild Walks on the Welshside kicking off 2018- so far I have been to Wepre Park (twice), Flint Castle, Loggerheads, Llwyni ponds, Bailey Hill in Mold, Caergwrle Castle, Southport and a walk to Another Place for an Awesome sunset, Chester in the Snow and round St. George’s Hall for my Birthday and finally going round Spike Island in the fog one Monday morning, and that was all before Easter!

I have also been along the Bridgewater Canal- Preston Brook section, Etna Park with a bit of the Buckley Heritage Trail, Pex Hill and Blundell’s Hill after a job interview (which I didn’t get!) Liverpool Lightnight, including the performance by Bring the Fire Project. I also saw the Museum of the Moon, which is an artwork based on NASA photographs and seems to be on tour in several places at the same time. I have also taken a few pics of the real thing, along with Sun pictures, including New Brighton and West Kirby Marine Lake.

Event-wise, Wales Comic con was awesome, been to Liverpool museum and an amble round Chester on the Upton Scarecrow Trail.

I have been attempting to catch up on a mass of editing, of both photos but mainly videos, so hopefully will have caught up with those by the end of June, which will bring me to 500 videos, though the next episode of Dr. RRR’s Guide to the Whoniverses is going to be more complex than the Morbius one, so WHO knows when that’ll be completed!

So that’s it, that’s the big update for Spring and the Summer-so-far on the Hiking/Event front.

STAY GROOVY AND SMOOTHIE!

 

 

Events- CHESTER WRITERS @ CHESTER LITERATURE FESTIVAL 2017

cwa17bIf you go down to the Storyhouse in Chester tomorrow, then you’ll be in for A BIG SURPRISE, as the Teddy Bears picnic nursery rhyme goes.

It’s one more sleep til Xmas. Erh, nope, sorry, not quite! One more sleep til the Chester Writers Anthology debut at the Storyhouse is what I mean! Then I will take to the stage for the debut of ‘The Case of the Missing Mince Pies’. I had thought of reading it in the style of Tommy Cooper’s Hat Sketch, but that would be too confusing and I’ll never be able to pull it off anyway, so I will just have to read the story as it is written!

So it should be fun! Tickets are £5, including a copy of the Anthology and hopefully the weather won’t be too bad. The events on indoors anyway in the Garrett Theatre, so what the hey!

INFINITE TIGLETVERSES- COMING SOON!

itv2I’ve wanted to make some original stories/Films for a while now. It seems whenever I focus on Dr. Rrr/Infinite Whoniverses other things don’t get done- like the Photo/hiking updates

STORIES- They’re everywhere. But sometimes you have to go out and find them.

The good ones, the Best ones are the hardest to find. You have to go further and farther out to catch them.

This year, Infinite Tigletverses is boldly going places never been before, doing something completely different and being more ambitious than ever. Seeking Stories-

And no matter where it takes us,

We’re gonna find ‘em!!

Infinite Tigletverses- Autumn/Winter 2017/2018

 

 

Anything can happen Tuesday- My Directorial debut!

Yes, I am doing more than directing traffic or kids in the dinner queue!  One of the things I’ve had at the back of my mind for a while is producing/directing short films, live action rather than just me or my nephews and puppets.

Confusions is a series of one-act plays and I’m directing Drinking Companions, an interesting if somewhat dialogue-heavy scene set in a bar. While quite static, the challenge has been to make it engaging and interesting, which the actors are bringing life to. So I’m glad the opportunity.  Next week will be the conclusion and I am eager to see how it all turns out.

It got me musing on what else can count- directing myself and the hiking Vlogs/diaries maybe? Tiglet’s shenanigans and Dr. RRr has made me a puppet-master (ish) but directing people is a great step forward. Then that got me thinking I have directed Cosplayers/models for photos, so it’s another thing to build on.anything-can-happen-tuesdays-1

We’ll just have to see how it goes!

 

Autumn 2015- sort of, because it’s now Winter 2017!

autumn2015I went back to University last year, just on the Open Day to ask if there were any plans to actually print the Autumn 2015 Anthology. Next thing I know, it’s been taken off the website!

Anyway, it’s back online now. I think the funding for a print version fell through which was why it was put online in the first place. Even though the University has its own Publishing House.

My short story ‘A Riot in the Library’ is part of a collection of mainly poetry, and can be found on Pages 57-62. Though I wish I’d have written something better for the biographical section! Though looking back it seems the Editor copied it from one of my CV’s! Oh well, never mind Seamus!

Have to say I didn’t initially like the two-column layout at first, but think it’s grown on me.

Think there might be more life to the adventures of Sammy the Squirrel and Pat the Polar Bear, just have to wait and see won’t we boys and girls?!!

Welcome to Anything can happen 2017!

Well, that’s what I’m hoping for anyway. A Fresh Start, a New Beginning, the slate wiped clean.keep-calm-because-anything-can-happen-1

To start with- I went to the shop and bought some wellies. I think my subconscious might be trying to tell me something- that was an impulse buy. Maybe my little jaunt round Talacre taught me to be more prepared than I already usually am for whatever eventualities may occur. It looks like it’ll be an epic five-part video anyway, plus I haven’t updated the five year anniversary like I thought I would.

Another thing I am planning in advance is Dr. Rrr! Series 2. In amongst the tidying and sorting I have not watched much this Christmas. (Really? How about Deep Space 9 series 7, or Brave or Thunderbolt Fantasy, or Doctor Who- The Return of Doctor Mysterio/Hell Bent/Spearhead from space, or Yuri on Ice finale (yes, really!) or even last episode of series 6 of Game of Thrones, what a revelation at the end!)

Okay, I might have watched a few things, but nothing really Christmassy, unless you count Nativity 3 in school or Cinderella in New Brighton, but that was before Term ended. Rogue One doesn’t count as an Xmas film, but saw it twice, the second time enjoyed it a bit more, but definitely more darker than others, about same as ep 3 I expect, but the prequels don’t really count anyway, in my opinion.

So there we go, anything can happen now I’ve got some wellies. It’s like when Ford Prefect tells Arthur Dent in Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy that the only thing he needs to survive is a towel, so I guess that’s next on my shopping list.

For now though, I’m eating my first pizza of 2017 and watching the New Sherlock- now there’s an epic combo if ever there was one.

Happy 2017- Get ready and keep your wellies handy, ‘cos anything can Happen!!
