This will be my final blog of 2014!
I like to do a Rewind blog every so often. It gives me the chance to revisit blogs I have written, artworks I’ve created, music I’ve made, and to remind myself of gigs and events I’ve attended alongside things that have happened or entertained me over a set period of time.
The Rewind from August – December 2014 is a much more… how do I put it… a much more personal affair.
The start of 2014 was all about my audition process for The Apprentice, Radio One’s Big Weekend, My Birthday, writing for Scissor Sisters, being on TV briefly, meeting Michelle Visage, drag queens, interactions with celebrities and famous people and some exceptionally interesting and positive professional work… and a whole load of other stuff I’ll probably be reminded of at some point other than now.
It really was an amazing start to the year! August – December was JUST as good!
We went to see the FABULOUS Alaska Thunderfuck at Menergy Glasgow!
And she was DIVINE!!!
It’s been a grand ol’ year at Menergy and I hope we have more adventures there next year!
Speaking of fabulous queens…
We went to a very special showing of BEARBARELLA at the Glasgow Film Theater featuring Peaches Christ, Lady Bear and an ensemble of fantastic drag performers.
With a limited run in Glasgow, Manchester and Belfast, it truly was a once-in-a-lifetime experience!!!
ALL NIGHT HORROR MADNESS – The Blood Crazed Beast Returns!
If you thought all night horror events dies out in the 1980s, think again because this autumn you’re invited to watch crazy horror movies from 11.00pm right though until dawn… Following a run of incredible sell-out shows, we proudly announce the Glasgow return of ALL NIGHT HORROR MADNESS!
Come and savour an atmosphere that the Edinburgh Reporter calls ‘electric’ and the event The Journal describes as ‘an authentic, vintage technicoulour rainbow of blood, guts, gore and bones, considered one of the best nights on the Scottish calandar.’

Riotous 80s zombie mashup NIGHT OF THE CREEPS

Just a quick nod to my fabulous friends and folk…
