Tickets are available for the recording of The Bearded Ladies first proper grown-up televisual pilot/extravaganza on May 26th, 7pm, over here. These, as if you didn't know, are Ori and Fay, who co-wrote and occasionally appeared in Green Wing, and Charlotte McDougall and Susue Donkin, who aren't anything to do with Green Wing at all, and are probably fed up with it being mentioned all the time.
Go to them, oh blog readers, sit amongst the audience and laugh your roaringest. Don't cough though, it's frowned on.
In other news, RUNEPAW (AKA the Viking Mice Roleplaying Game) has now begun in earnest. I was going to put up an excellent picture 'Marsha Klein' sent me, of a hamster in a horned helmet, but it's on my old laptop, which is currently somewhere in Bristol. However the characters have been chosen, and the game proper starts in two weeks.
Characters are: Strixa, a mouse warlock with a small spark elemental, Odin, a grumpy mouse druid with a hunting spider companion (Odin is secretly terrified of his 'pet', which follows him everywhere, so consequently always sleeps with one eye open), and Bjorna, a stoat barbarian with one eye and a large axe.
Two as-yet unnamed characters: m'colleague Paul's mouse bard, and Constable Trout's samurai lizard (I wanted one character from a non-standard background, like Ibn in The Thirteenth Warrior, or the Native American martial artist in Brotherhood of the Wolf).
I've got two weeks to work on the first scenario, which I think will involve spooky mouse versions of Nazgul, some really really big spiders, and possibly an owl. Details will be going up on rpg.net when it starts, along with campaign rules and stuff on the off-chance anyone wants to run their own game.
UPDATE: Well, not an update as such, more an late addition - the fricken' amazing CGI/puppet/whatever 'Tyger'. Go and watch it now. What with this and the Sultan's Elephant thing in London this week (gutted I missed that), it's been a good week for performances involving stylised fauna.
