Charon goes to jazz at The Bollo…

As I seem to spend a fair bit of my leisure (and thinking) time at The Bollo, I decided to take my television camera along to give you an insight into what The Bollo looks like. It is a Sunday. The doors have just opened and, as usual, I fall through the door. I did a bit of location filming – the conditions were very bright sunlight and the punters had not arrived yet in their droves… but no matter. Kelly Dickson, a very talented jazz singer, was singing. Quite a few punters on Sundays bring their children. Children cry, scream, run about and make a nuisance of themselves. I had to replace the soundtrack from the film – but… with a much better soundtrack: Kelly Dickson singing ‘Close your eyes’ from her latest album Vocal Point. Kelly Dickson’s website is worth a visit

A bit of a departure from podcasts… and I may well do more roving reports with the camera. Coming up on Weekend Review this weekend – Peter Groves on copyright – Geeklawyer, Carl Gardner and I discuss events of momentous importance from the news of last week and… more… who knows? It has happened yet.

  1. LawMinx… the Bollo is many things… but… Port Out Starboard Home… it ain’t. it is a pub that has turned into a gastro pub… with a bit of inspired binge-drinking on Fridays / Saturdays.

    I have, as it happens, just returned from there about ten minutes ago…. a most enjoyable evening … and I even brought the bottle back with me… The Freedom of Information Act does not require me to reveal commercially sensitive information, even if as a figment of imagination I was subject to it, so I will refrain from revealing which bottle.

    Lo-Fi… lingering shots of the Bar?…. or are you talking about the guys behind the bar?

    I thought the low angle shot to open was reasonably effective…. I may even award myself an award… again….
