Well, it turns out that was Security; we got chucked out just after 11.30. In total, we had just over one and a half minutes of useful footage prepared and edited and 20Gb of stuff just sitting on the hard drive. Ah well, such is life! To try and make amends we headed back to O3rd kitchen, (except Geo who had to get the last bus home,) and had a little editing meeting at around 1am. We decided that if we could get G5 time this morning we would have a brief montage of what was coming on our show over one of the good audio tracks, just to introduce people to what we were about, ending with the tagline "Union Events: You can't masturbate all the time" or, failing that, "Union Events: Degree? What degree?" Anyway, that's all academic as the G5s were booked out all this morning and the output manager was turning up at around midday to sort out this week's broadcasts. So now here's another cliffhanger. What will happen to the UE team now? Will they ever get a show made? Will Ed Moore delete their scratch file? Who cares? Tune in next time for more thrills and spills.
Fun with Photos
On a more positive note, and therefore kept separate from the sleep deprivation experiment that is WTV, I have just put up some pictures from Sonja's leaving party in the galleries. Check them out… P.S. Some clarification is required here. Basically, Sonja is Emma's exchange partner who came to stay with us for a fortnight, and she left last Tuesday. So, naturally, we had a kitchen party on the Monday night. As you do.

Writing about web page http://www.timwestwood.comIt's Westwood baby boy!
That's right, in our capacity as WTV Union Ents crew Ed and I just got back from filming the one and only Tim Westwood in the union, including an interview. Surprisingly enough for anyone who's heard his radio show he's a really nice bloke, he even chatted to us about the camera we were using as we set up, (apparently he uses the same one for his TV show.) Anyone wanting to see the interview plus everything else we've filmed at the union (confirmed: MTW's "Bugsy Malone," WADS' "Death of a Salesman," People Under the Stairs, Westwood) should tune in to our show at 4pm on a Wednesday, or possibly Monday, (TBC,) in Cholo. Boom!

Writing about web page http://www.drinkstuff.com/Well, having just looked at the website, I'm incredibly tempted to get some bar equipment for the kitchen. I don't think we can afford a full set of optics, (how cool would that be!) but after last night I think we would have less alcohol wasted everywhere if we invested in a few pourers. Oh, and on a semi-connected note: you can reach the roof with a slice of toast in the Rootes kitchens.

Last night we got creative with a bag of ice, a blender and a selection of alcoholic beverages. Here are our favourites:
Opal Fruit Delight – Shot (or 2 if you're feeling dangerous) of white rum – Slosh of blackcurrant squash – Lots of orange juice – Apple juice to taste
Cadbury's – Irish Meadow (Tesco "Bailey's") – Milk – Chocolate drink powder – Pour over ice
Mini Purple (aka the "Fuck Me!") – Twistee shot glass – 1/2 vodka – 1/2 blackcurrant squash
The "....oh!..." – Twistee shot glass – 1/2 blackcurrant squash – 1/2 coffee powder, milk and vodka
The "So Wrong" (but it feels so right!) – Twistee shot glass – 1/2 blackcurrant squash – 1/2 coffee powder, chocolate powder, milk, vodka, Irish Meadow
"You can't possibly do that!" – Twistee shot glass – 1/2 50:50 vodka and orange – 1/2 Opal Fruit Delight (with vodka instead of rum) plus tequila and lime Twistee
Try them, you might be pleasantly surprised! We take absolutely no responsibility for anything stupid you do while drinking these, we took no responsibility for our stupid actions!
