The third in a series of 10-minute videos about the adventures and frustrations of an ordinary (but rather hirsute) General Practitioner.

Dr Hairy in: Phoning the London Hospital


Dates:
Fri Jan 29, 2010 00:00 - Fri Jan 29, 2010

image

In "ordinary life" I work as an administrator in the NHS, and in collaboration with my friends Julian Le Saux and David Hindmarsh I have recently started to put together a series of 10-minute puppet-videos chronicling the misadventures and frustrations of an ordinary (but rather hirsute) General Practitioner called Dr Hairy.

The first of these is called "Phoning the London Hospital", and it's now online. You can see it on You Tube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0nsGFtIgiow , or on DVblog at http://www.dvblog.org/movies/01_2010/londonhospital.mov , or on my own site at http://www.edwardpicot.com/drhairy/londonhospital.mov . File-size is 48.9MB.

And - Chapters 9-16

"Mr Thornton walked rapidly, without awaiting Dixon's slow movements. Margaret stood by the tea-table, resolved. The lines in her father's face were soft and waving, with a frequent undulating kind of trembling, the dreamy lids a considerable distance from the eyes. Mr Thornton's straight brows fell low, principally about the lips, one moment stretching from earth to sky and filling all the width of the horizon, at the next obediently compressed into a vase."

Continuing the abridged version of Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South - abridged on the principle of leaving out all the important bits. Mr Thornton's horse-obsessed mother is introduced; local girl Bessy Higgins declares a penchant for Satanism; and the servant Dixon becomes ever more sinister in her behaviour.

Newly co-published by Furtherfield and The Hyperliterature Exchange: an appreciation of David Daniels, the great shape-poet, who died in May 2008.

"Daniels is one of those figures who straddles the divide between digital and pre-digital art and literature... His art is about liberation, uninhibited outpouring, spontaneity and fun."

To read the whole article, go to http://www.hyperex.co.uk/reviewdaniels.php or http://www.furtherfield.org/displayreview.php?review_id=323 .

A page of tributes to David Daniels (entitled "Tributes to David Daniels by divers hands") is also being compiled at http://hyperex.co.uk/reviewdanielstributes.php . If you would like to add a tribute of your own (in whatever form you prefer), please send it to edward at edwardpicot.com - a small prize will be sent to the best one received before 1st March 2009.
