JACK MEDLEY’S SECURE AS FUCK MEGARAVE IN THE SKY.

Sunday 26th May 2019 was the day when this happened.

Friends and family of Jack Medley turned up to express their love and admiration for a truly remarkable being. Funny, gifted, generous, huge of heart, fearless, reckless.

Snuffed out so young, when all was poised for him to realise some of his long-held dreams. The generosity and dedication to Jack has already enabled those whose lives he touched to realise some of this in his absence, but it has taught us a lot more about how love and courage can really shape our world.

A truly fitting tribute to a fallen angel.

I am not sure he would will be content to rest in peace. I think he would want to live on in all our hearts, encouraging us to live beyond fear, always at the best after-show parties, always pushing, always instigating, always loving, always there.

Please enjoy and share the pictures of the amazing day we made for him.

So how we made was that we got the dough and patted it on flour with our palm and stretched  it to about 12 inches big. I rolled it with the rolling pin and turned it  half way and kept rolling until it was circular, then finished stretching it by hand. Then we added the “Secret Recipe Passata.” and we poured half a ladle spoon in to the centre of the dough and slowly spreaded it around the dough. We topped it with 100% mozzarella and used a paddle  to put it in the wood-fired oven. It started bubbling up after only a minute in the oven, so it needed to be turned around to cook evenly. Once it was out, we…

Fat White Family. House of Vans. March 18/03/2016

Lias, clearly shattered from his Moonlandingz exploits in Texas giving his best shot at connecting with the equally bemused Dizzee Rascal fans. We, (Ed Kingpin ) got VIP passes, free merch and drink tokens, so were well happy, the boys looked and sounded great, kept it up-tempo (No Goodbye Goebbels for this lot) and a swathe of the yute were left thinking, ‘Well that was something’ Lighting was pretty rad too.

War Horse comes to Peckham.

Members of the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment congregated on Lyndhurst Way in Peckham this morning. They were joined by Joey, the National Theatre’s life-size puppet horse from War Horse. They were there as part of a project devised by local Artist and social historian Melissa Jo Smith  to re-create a scene captured in 1915 in the exact same location.

Anyway the full video can be seen here in all its HD glory!
