The Adventures of BeerMan

Hi

How's it goin?

From October 2008 to August 2009 I lived in Edinburgh with my friends Adam, Jonny Torpedo and Richard P.

During that time we had many drunken adventures.

Regular readers will know I recently found a lot of old video clips on my hard drive. This post is another post about one such video.

It was a another fun filled day in Edinburgh, I had the day off, as did Adam and Jonny had just finished work. Surely this was destiny telling us to go to the pub. But Adam was in a bad mood. We don't know why. Probably because he thought someone was using his ensuite toilet. None of us ever did use his toilet but he became very paranoid that we were all the time. He refused to come to the pub with us, and stormed off into his room in a huff.
I was not happy with this. It was a sunny day outside and three of us were off, surely this is a sign to go to the pub?
So I enlisted the help of a local superhero to convince Adam to come out and play.

Sorry the footage is a bit crap, you can blame Jonny Torpedo, he filmed it.




That's All For Now

Until Next Time

Have A Nice

Adventures in Glasgow

Hi

How's it goin?
Several weeks ago, myself and my classmates went to Glasgow for a film festival. It was a two day event, so rather than get the bus back and forth, we decided to stay the night and hit the town. The festival itself was really good, loads of good films and workshops were attended by us all. We also went to a really good lecture by Gary Tank Commander. Was tres entertaining. (That's french for "very entertaining.")

 

The night was our own, so we did what every sensible person does when in a strange town.

We went to the pub.

In one such pub, I attempted to perform a magic trick on Struan. It involves hypnotising him and attempting to make him see a triangle in a pint of lager. It's the same trick I did on Adam once before on a drunken night out. He fell for it too. 

Struan did not see the triangle, but he was looking in the wrong place.

Watch this video to see where the triangle really was.

We shortly moved on to another pub, then another, then another. At one point in the evening our conversation was steered in the direction of Sean Connery. More specifically The Sean Connery Whiskey Advert for Japanese whiskey.





Isn't it amazing how simply drinking a glass of japanese whiskey can give the magical ability to tie a bow tie?

Scott then did his famous Sean Connery impression for his version of the advert.

If that doesn't sell Japanese whiskey then I don't know what will.

That's all for now

Until next time

My Classmates Films: Harrassment

Hi

How's it goin?

Several weeks ago I posted Behind The Scenes on Struans Pet Hate. I'm sure you remember it, it was the one that featured this truly fantastic video clip.

Well here is the finished product. Another fantastic film from Struan Robertson
It also has a cameo by me!

Little bit of behind the scenes trivia for ya, I play one of the tramps, and you may notice I am carrying a yellow carrier bag. Well that yellow carrier bag contained the Robin costume for Robins Induction day, which starred Struan as Robin. That's a nice little factoid for ya.

That's All For Now

The Tale Of The Strange Tasting Porridge



Hi

How's it goin?

It was Fathers Day last Sunday. That's when this post was actually meant to have been posted, but I forgot about it. So to celebrate Fathers Day, here's a story about my Dad.

This tale takes place many, many years ago. When I was just a boy. We were on a family holiday, to Florida. Florida in America. That's a big deal when you're a kid. It's AMERICA. As a child for some reason you automatically assume that everything American is ace. 

Sadly having lived there for 6 months I can assure you that this is not the case. But this is now and that was then. Then I was in awe of everything american. It was on this holiday that I got my beloved Cowboy hat. 

It was our first day on holiday. We were in America and we were damn well gonna do lots of American things. First and foremost was breakfast. It's the most important meal of the day after all. Since it was our first day, and we were all still knackered from traveling, we decided to have breakfast in the hotel restaurant. In retrospect it wasn't that good, but as an 11 year old kid it was amazing. It was humongous, a massive breakfast buffet. I had never seen anything like it before, I stood in awe of this truly epic breakfast. They had Pancakes! Pancakes for breakfast. My 11 year old self thought this was mental and proceeded to eat more pancakes than is medically advisable. My sister also ate a mammoth size breakfast, sadly this is a trend that would continue throughout her life, hence her size now.

My Parents were reasonably sensible, and did not stuff their faces with pancakes and maple syrup like their greedy children. My Mum had cereal followed by the usual cooked breakfast, and my Dad started off with some porridge. Some very strange tasting porridge. Being tired and in a new country he assumed that his taste buds were out of allignment, or perhaps this was some kind of strange American porridge, we were in America after all, and everything is better (or at least different) in America.
My Dad is not one to waste food, so he continued eating, but he attempted to sweeten it with sugar, but it still didn't taste quite right. He then added in some strawberry Jam, surely this would make the porridge more palatable. But alas it did not. My Dad continued to claim that the porridge tasted "Strange."

He ate it all anyway, like I said we don't waste food in our family.
The waitress appeared a short time later to clear our plates, and Dad made a comment about the porridge. The waitress looked confused, then he did his best American accent and said "The Oatmeal." This is something he does a lot when talking people of different nationalities. especially Americans. I realise that is a difficult thing to convey in a written blog rather than me telling you the story in person, but trust me he does it all the time.

The waitress then realised what he was talking about. Her confusion didn't stem from the fact he called oatmeal porridge, or from his attempt to explain the situation in an obviously fake american accent. Her confusion came from the fact that there was no porridge/oatmeal available on the buffet.

Her face struggled to hide her smirk, which turned into a chuckle. All the while myself and my family sat there confused as to her amusement. Well my Mum and Dad sat there confused, my sister and I were busy on our 13th helping of pancakes and maple syrup.
The waitress then told us why she was laughing.

"You're the first person to ever put strawberry jam in Sausage Gravy!"
Yes, sausage gravy.

He had been sitting at the table with a lovely steaming bowl of sausage gravy which he sweetened with Jam. 

In his defence, it did really look like porridge.

The Official Making Of The Hotel Promo

Hi

How's it goin? 


Several months ago myself, Ian, Struan and Scott all headed to a hotel on the west coast to make a promo video. We had a cracking couple of days away which I have written about before. While we were away both myself and Scott made several videos. Here is the official Behind The Scenes video, expertly put together by Scott. It's very, very good, and will hopefully give you a good idea of the kind of high jinks we got up to during the weekend.

Hope you like.


If you can't see the video above then stop reading this crap on facebook and CLICK HERE





Tomorrow I shall be posting all the video's I made, unlike Scott, I am very lazy and I didn't edit mine together. I just stuck them all on you tube. 

That's All For Now

Until Next Time 

Have A Nice 

Andy G



P.S.


I am aware that the blog has been very video heavy lately. This is because I have recently finished school and have a lot of videos to share. I also just found a lot of old video clips on my hard drive which I had forgotten all about. All of which shall be posted online soon. Including a couple of videos from Marks Stag Do which I know you will love, although Mark might not.

Behind The Scenes on D.C.A.

Hi

How's it goin?

So as the academic year comes to a close, all of my classmates are busy finishing up the edit on their final projects. Some of my class have got some really top notch films. Here is a behind the scenes look, at one of them. One in which I am one of the stars.
This film is called D.C.A. and is written and directed by the award winning Cat Napier.
Which stands for Diet Cokers Anonymous.

It's a mockumentary about a young girl who is addicted to Diet Coke. I play John Johnson, the documentary maker.

Here's a couple of behind the scenes pics

Here is Cat, playing the character of the Diet Coke addicted Caroline, in this scene she is recovering from an overdose,




This first video features a brief glimpse of a critical scene in the movie, and then Cat does her Blow Job Face.


In this second video KP demonstrates just how annoying she can be

In this third video, all manner of topics are covered, from the potential rape of KP, to Cat missing her penis, and Scott talking about what he'd like to do with some vegetables after he'd used them in a a bizarre sexual act.

While we were shooting at Cat's flat, we spotted a couple of giant dalmation dogs, Cat made me film them. Here is that film.



A critical scene in the film is when Cat's character tries to cure herself of ehr addiction by drinking Pepsi. Here is a sneak peak at that scene.

If you can't see the video above, or any of the other videos, then stop being such a mong! Stop reading this crap on facebook and CLICK HERE


Cat should be finished editing D.C.A. any day now and as soon as she uploads it to you tube, I'll be sure to post it on here for you all to enjoy her very good film and my wonderful acting. I've seen an almost finsihed version fo the film, and I can confirm it's very, very good!

Killer Dogs and Secret Space Rockets

Hi

How's it goin?

You smell terrific, is that a new shampoo you're using?

The other day it was very sunny, and I had nothing to do, so I thought I would do a good deed, and take Grappa The Crazy Killer Demon Dog From Hell for a walk. My plan was to walk into a field, kill her and bury the body, then go and celebrate. On my walk I discovered many wonderful things about the wonderful area where I live. (Northfield)

Here's a video where I discover evidence that Aberdeen has a SPACE PROGRAM!!
If you can't see the video above then stop reading this crap on facebook and CLICK HERE

Other highlights from my walk included:

The Pinkest Building I have ever seen!




And a burnt out old hut!


Northfield really is a classy area, but on the upside we do have our own rocket!!!


For those of you who have been influenced by Grappas insidious mind control powers and actually think that she is a good dog. Don't worry, I didn't kill her. But one day that's a decision that everyone will regret. Mark my words! One day she will kill us all!!

That's All For Now

Until Next Time

Behind The Scenes on Phugs


Hi

How's it goin?

Several weeks ago, on a cold spring morning, myself and a few of my classmates, headed to Duthie Park to help my friend and classmate Stephen Horne film his short film PHUGS.

Phugs stands for Perfunctory Hugs. If you don't know what perfunctory means, don't worry, I didn't either.


per·func·to·ry

  [per-fuhngk-tuh-ree]  Show IPA
–adjective
1.
performed merely as a routine duty; hasty and superficial:perfunctory courtesy.
2.
lacking interest, care, or enthusiasm; indifferent orapathetic:  
In his lectures he reveals himself to be merely aperfunctory speaker.




The film stars Stephen as a man who has never been hugged, and when he receives yet another Phug from everyone's favourite teuchter, Scott Ironside, it's just one Phug too many.

Here's a couple of behind the scenes pics:






And here's a couple of quick videos I made on the day.

During our lunch break, the weather turned a bit crap, as it often does in Aberdeen. We couldn't film in the rain, so to fill up some time, myself and Struan had a wander through The Winter Gardens. Many years ago The Winter Gardens in Aberdeen used to be home to Spike The Talking Cactus. Sadly he has since vanished, but they do have a giant frog. Here's a video of Struans reaction to seeing it. Movie buffs should be suitably impressed at my joke at the end of this video. And if you're not impressed, you're a dick. Simple as.

An Interview with a Muppet



Hi

 How's it goin?

As regular readers will know, one of my school assignments was to make a film called Induction Day. We were given a script and told to go off and shoot it. I decided to adapt the script a little bit, and make Robins Induction Day. In that film, there is a series of interviews with students about the educational institute I attend.
For reasons to boring to go into, those interviews were edited down a lot for the final cut. So here, for your viewing pleasure is the full and uncut, Interview With A Muppet.
It stars Struan Robertson as The voice of Morrice The Muppet and Features Scott Ironside as The voice of Elmo and Miss Piggy

Enjoy
