Where The Gummi Bears Come From
Here in Southern Sweden for a few weeks, with fabulous weather, a lot of tea and blisters from walking over half of London last week that should have their own reality show. You realize how much the human body can handle when you take on London in 85 degree weather for three days in a row with only about three hours sleep on top of major jet lag. Many highlights include walking up the Thames from Surrey Quays to Tower Bridge in the early morning hours (the feeling of looking back over your shoulder and down the Thames is truly Dickensian as you feel a million friendly ghosts) , turning masses of heads in the West End while being poured into my new dirndl (hate to gloat but I've been donning frumpy yoga pants all spring...), an illustre-ious Friday night in Clapham Common and searching for Ollie Reed's spirit in Wimbledon. Thanks to Brian, EBay, You Tube and Mum for making this trip happen.
Welcome! My name is Super Amanda and you may already know my You Tube, hourglass figure fitness and Pin Up work. I study the life of and blog about the work of British film maker Ken Russell. Anyone can comment, you do not have to join blogger. All are welcome. Ken Russell fans and detractors alike, please chime in. If you are new to Ken Russell then you are severely parched of cultural literacy and must drink here. If you'd like an Hourglass Fitness consultation please donate 30.00 through the PayPal donation below. Despite millions of views I do not sell ad space so all donations are appreciated. Thanks and ROCK ON!
"We all see film differently. Memory also has a tendency to re-edit, re-shoot and even re-dub. A line like 'Play it again , Sam', even when the original dialogue is known to be different identifies Casablanca immediately. So if you should find within these pages any descriptions that conflict with the facts, they are that way, because that's how I remember them."
