We have a new shop!!

Steve's back... After coursework craziness, flat hunting, and a well deserved break, I am back on form!!

I've had my wrist slapped by Errey for my lack of communications, I'm one of those people who's hopeless at answering the phone, or replying to texts. So I'm sat looking at a big note on my wall telling me to "Send Errey love texts every day". He also nagged about my lack of blogging, so here I am!

I've also been back on the work - shocking, I know.

As of today, we have a brand spanking new shop... But finger's crossed it's only temporary, until we get our website sexed up.

So... why not rock on over to

You can treat yourself to YM006, our latest issue, the best by far!!

Want to see where we've come from - you can order the 2009 back catalogue, for just £6. You'll get the first four issues of YEAH. I promise you, it's worth a laugh, and you can see just how much we've improved in little over a year.

Or, plan ahead... For just £12 you can get a 2010 subscription. You'll get YM005 and YM006 straight away, and the next two will be on their way to you as soon as they're released.

So really, what are you waiting for?

Ben Flannaghan introduces The Zoo Shoe Project!!!

You may remember the other week Ben Flannaghan was in the YEAH studios with the talented Hannah Goodrham working on an exciting project....

Well here it is!!! The Zoo Shoe... WATCH THE VIDEO...

'THE IDEA is a shoe with an interchangeable upper or 'skin' which is separate to the sole and tongue. The Zoo Skin would be ‘open source’, whereby anyone can contribute their design, resulting in a collaborative experience that aims to showcase new and emerging talent. The skins attach onto the sole of the shoe using a zip that would run around the back of the sole. The skins would be sold separately from the soles so that the wearer can change the appearance of their shoes cheaply and easily.

The Skins are not just a platform for artist and designers, they could also promote bands, events, clubs, companies, magazines, festivals...'

How cool eh?

YEAH will be working a lot in the future with Ben and The Zoo Shoe project!

Go check out the website to look at more info and the portfolio shot by Hannah!

Important News about YEAH YM006



As you may of heard YM006 Festivals has gone to print! You probably have, because we have been hollering it from the roof tops for weeks!

YM006 has been set to come out tomorrow Saturday the 15th of May.

BUT for VERY VERY good reason it will now be set back a few days till Tuesday/Wednesday next week.
If you saw YM005, you would know that it was YEAHs first trip into being perfect bound! We decided to go for the more expensive bind to bring up the quality feel of the publication and to make YEAH stand out in the crowd. The problem was that the print company we went to for YM005 sadly did not bind the magazine properly and a lot of the artwork was lost.

So for YM006 we have gone to a new printers!

Trust me I'm getting to the point... Our new printers are so so HOT that they have refused to print YM006 until it's PERFECT... We have been working with the printers all week to make YM006 the best we can get it.

So it's put us back a couple of days.

No Problem!! It will be worth it! We promise!

From tomorrow you will be able to 'PRE-ORDER' YM006 off
We will then send them out as soon as we get them back from the printers!

The 2010 subscription will be available too!!!

More Info about State of the Art


State of the Art; is a collective exhibition brought to you by the talented and enthusiastic students from the second year Fine Art degree course of the University of Portsmouth. From the 10th – 21st May, this dynamic exhibition will be exhibited at the Eldon Gallery (Winston Churchill Avenue, Portsmouth) before starting its tour of the city where it will be exhibited in various locations including The Kraken Wakes and Drift in the City over the summer months. This contemporary exhibition captures the changing nature of both the art world and the current global economic situation – the fine art BA course at Portsmouth is being placed on hiatus with no intake of first year students for the coming academic year. The private view of these determined students art will be held on Thursday 13th May, 4-7pm. There will be refreshments, live performances and even a live band.

The work on show represents the up-and-coming talent within Portsmouth, with individual artists grouping together to create an exhibition which guarantees to deliver a spectrum of visually inspiring works. Painting, sculpture, film, animation, performance and relational art will all feature, as well as art reflecting both the contemporary art scene and more traditional methods. The show asserts and merits our presence within the University of Portsmouth. In order for us to finance the show, the State of the Art team has been busy hosting a number of promotional and fund-raising events around Portsmouth. Through hosting events from cake sakes to music nights we have smashed our target of £700. The last of these events will be held on Saturday 8th May at The Eldon Arms 7-11pm. These events provided an entertaining and inspiring experience, demonstrating that, despite the recent decline of Government funding and support, young creative talent continues to thrive.
The last of these events will be held on Saturday 8th May at The Eldon Arms 7-11pm.

“This is a very talented and committed group of students. I am sure their show will be well worth seeing for everyone interested in the current ' state of the art'.” -John Molyneux, senior lecturer at Portsmouth School of art, design and media, writer and curator.

The Invite to the private view we sadly couldn't attend yesterday!
BUT don't worry! The exhibition is on in the 1st venue till the 21st!

Go Look See..

State of the Art

A new show kicks off the University of Portsmouth summer shows season and it’s a cracker.

It’s called State of the Art, a name which reflects the difficult position fine art/creative students find themselves in.

In a time when funding is being cut across the board, and, as is so often the case, the creative courses tend to be the first to suffer. It will feature a number of artists who create work spanning a broad spectrum, from painting and sculpture to film, animation, performance and relational art.

State of the Art will also move ‘out into’ the local community of Portsmouth. Various art workshops will be held in specific locations in and around Portsmouth.
The exhibition features work by 2nd year BA Fine Art students.

The Eldon Gallery, Winston Churchill Avenue, Portsmouth 10th – 21st May 2010
The Kraken Wakes, St Michaels Road, Portsmouth 31st May – 3rd June 2010
Drift in the City, Portsmouth 6th – 8th June 2010
More to be confirmed……

Alex Errey Film Review - Iron Man 2

Iron Man 2 (2010)

Written by: Justin Theroux (Screenplay), Stan Lee (Comic Book)
Directed by: Jon Favreau
Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Mickey Rourke, Scarlet Johansson.

Release Date: 30 April

How can I miss the chance to preview a movie? If I did, not only would my usual insanity plea be accepted and appreciated, but I would be quickly shipped off to the local while-you-wait rubber room. I’m not a fan of there lobotomy cuisine so I happily accepted the chance to see the most anticipated movie of the last few years.

“Iron Man 2”, the sequel every nerd has been drooling over since the red and gold suit made a pass at them a few years ago, blasts onto the screen this week hoping to live up to the success it’s forbearer created, which even then was unexpected. Tony Stark (Downey) returns as the Iron Clad knight with the heart of Palladium, trying to the world a better place. With Peace now the norm, Tony is being put under pressure to give up his mighty Iron Man Weapon “for the good of the people” due to the supposed copycats suits being created around the globe. In usual Stark fashion, he gets out of dodge and decides to relax, but when he lives it up by entering a Vintage race weekend, he comes face-to-face with a Russian Scientist who has perfected his own metal suit and is out for revenge, Whiplash (Rourke). With Tony trying to keep the world safe by himself and with S.H.I.E.L.D looking over his shoulder, the U.S Government take it upon themselves to put it right and try to get their hands on the “Iron Man” suit, sending and old friend to appeal to the mad millionaire (Cheadle).

Compared to the first movie, which was a story about a man who changes his ways; this second outing doesn’t sound clichéd when on paper. Reading it back myself it sounds fantastic, lots of action mixed in with a serious gritty storyline. I’m sorry to say that this not the case. The action is high impact but not as frequent as one would like, but when it does happen it is worth the wait. Fast and loud is how I like it done, and it does deliver, there are a few niggles with length though. In one scene where there is a high enemy percentage, the battle only lasts a few moments where as it would have been better for the audience if more time was given to it, especially as it is an edge of your seat moment. The sub-plots, i.e. Stark and Pepper (Paltrow), S.H.I.E.L.D and Stark, work as stand alone stories. They all give clues of what is going to happen in future films but when it comes down to it, they are quite predictable. I can’t give away any of the endings here, but I didn’t have to guess very hard. I like to be surprised, and sadly I wasn’t.

I wish I was able to get on the set for this one, ok I would have needed to become invisible and sneak in like a ninja (which just isn’t my way of doing things), but it would have been worth the Jail time. Of course as I’ve already stated, Robert Downy Jr. is back as the infamous Tony Stark, a character which has become iconic in the world of comic books and film alike. Downy obviously makes the role complete, he is Tony Stark and I don’t think anybody else could fill his shoes. With his past as diverse as it is, he can draw parts from it and work them into the role he plays. When a character has to put on an act, you know you need real talent to pull it off, and talent is Downy. Plain and simple.

Paltrow once again is fantastic as the fiery Pepper Potts. Strong, determined, and a redhead, a great combination for somebody like me. The chemistry between Stark and Pepper on screen is dynamic; you wonder why these two fabulous actors haven’t worked together before the Iron Man franchise. Well, I can’t think of anything they’ve done anyway. Now, sadly I can’t be so nice about the other players in this film. Mickey Rourke can do a Russian accent, he can also play a bad guy, but he doesn’t seem to fit in very well. Maybe it’s because I know his other works too well and I’m comparing them to each other. To his credit, he does look the part even if he appears to have been in the Californian sun. The main change from the first film is the addition of Don Cheadle. I’ve always been a fan of his work, and due to Terrance Howard having problems with Marvel, it’s all the better in my book. He decided it would be better to copy parts from Howard’s portrayal of Rhoadie because creating a whole new personality might make the audience question it. Don sadly wasn’t as good as I hoped, the amount of scenes he had didn’t really do his acting talent justice, but I’m glad he took the role.

I don’t really know how to rate this film overall. The plot wasn’t really there, but the film still worked. The acting was high Calibre but it didn’t live up to the hype. The action was explosive but I left feeling like a damp rag. It’s all contradiction; Iron Man 2 shouldn’t have worked. It should have been kept off the screen for another year; it wouldn’t have been a bad idea. Maybe a bit more editing would have made this easier, it doesn’t help that they cut a lot of scenes out. One of them was in the advert but not the film for goodness sake!

Overall, I will give this film a thumbs up. It you haven’t seen the first one, it will still work but the plot may seem a bit difficult to follow. You need to know your Iron Man history. If you did see the first one, you’ll be happy to know that the action has been upped, but you will be left wanting more. Nowhere near as good as the first one sadly.

Errey's adventure into Super 8

My first outing on Super 8. Using a completely unknown camera to me on a whole new medium. Very exciting. It has been recorded simply using my laptop hence the low quality. Next time I will pay the extra for Telecine scanning! I think it will be totally worth it because the quality is much better than in reality than on this recording. You can also see it is very over exposed in the second half. DUNO why lol. Will have to go back to drawing board, check manuals etc! Also i slowed it down half way through which created the black lines! you live and learn! I used Cassius by Foals because its Bevs song standard!!

Let me know what you think!

The next plan for my Super 8 is adventure is to make an advert for

Bunny and The Bull - Alex Errey Film Review

Film review

Bunny an the Bull (2009)

Written & Directed by Paul King

Cast: Edward Hogg, Simon Farnaby, Veronica Echegui, Julian Barratt, Noel Fielding, Richard Ayoade

Everybody is a little bit mad in their own special way; I have an unhealthy obsession with all things Nautical for example. Being a Pirate opened up a whole new world, even if the rape, pillage and plundering still elude me. Of course, being mad is a good thing in the modern world; some people make a solid career out of being clinically insane. Take The Mighty Boosh for example. Crazy stuff; a talking ape called Bollo, a shaman with a lisp, a Jazz enthusiast & an Electro boy don’t make a good example on paper, but brought to stage and screen it turns into comedy genius. If you’ve seen it, you’ll understand what I mean, unless you hated it which means you are wrong.

The latest project from the Mighty Boosh camp comes via their talented director Paul King in the form of “Bunny and the Bull”; a quirky tale told using common household clutter and a gaggle of comic genius. The story follows a recluse by the name of Stephen (Edward Hogg) who hasn’t left the house in a very long time. When he tries to leave his overly organised home one day, his best mate Bunny (Simon Farnaby) shows up to help retell their last adventure together. Turn the clock back a year, Bunny and Stephen decide to leave their dull lives behind them and venture head first into the sights and sounds of Europe. Along the way they meet an ill-tempered seafood waitress (Veronica Echegui), a Polish Dog Farmer (Julian Barratt) & a drunken Matador (Noel Fielding). All these odd encounters culminate into a story that tests true friendship, and true love, to the limit.

I like this film. I know that’s a very bold statement to push into frame so early on into the review but it has to be said. Firstly the story is very imaginative, it is quite complex compared to the far out Boosh. It still has the quirky going on but it doesn’t try to be unrealistic. It only seems out of this world because of the imaginative use of props and scenery. As Stephen ventures around his flat, the next part of the adventure is told using the items that are near him e.g. newspaper snow, toy cars, Snow Globe Mountains. Ingenious work Mr. King.

The characters fit into this papier-mâché perfectly; their dull lives seem redeemed as they venture into the unknown with new purpose. Edward Hogg & Simon Farnaby work well as a pair, being friends in real life helps pull it off when playing to the screen, big or small. The quips from Bunny are sure to make anybody laugh, take this for example. When Bunny is trying to convince Stephen to place a bet on a horse:

Boosh make an appearance throughout the story as various incarnations, Julian Barratt as a Polish Dog Farmer stands out as my highlight of the film. His broken English is very convincing, a role he takes on quite regular now a days. Richard Ayoade, Noel Fielding and Rich Fulcher have there part to play in story progression, culminating in a hilarious Matador training scene involving alcohol and a shopping trolley.

The movie had a fairly good budget, and utilised it incompletely! I’m not surprised to hear a rumour that they were way under budget, I hope it’s true. Production is to a high standard and it shows in the Blu-Ray version of the film; colourful, vibrant and a great soundtrack to boot, A feast for the eyes as it were. It all blends together in such a way that you soon forget about the homemade landscapes until the next one turns up to astound you. I don’t usually comment on costume design but when you involve such a group as The Mighty Boosh, you can’t leave it out. From glittery bullfighting clobber, to shellfish ensembles, nothing is kept to a minimum. A lot of work has gone into making everything seem correct in a greatly imagined world, hats off to the costume department.

As I said, I really like this film, I do. The mix of the bizarre and truly god damned weird appeals to me and a truly base level, ok, for me that’s quite normal. If you liked the original Boosh work, along with other things like The IT Crowd & The Flight of the Conchords, you will enjoy this film and should appreciate it as much as I do. On the other hand, if you didn’t enjoy such things then this will easily get tedious and boring. The plot is fantastic but as with everything, it has its flaws. Original ideas don’t stand out and old fashion jokes haven’t been re-engineered enough to be present in such a film. Overall, this film will leave you with a good feeling and is well worth the price, even if it’s only rental.
