W1A : Session 2 aka Splinter of The Minds Eyes

 Lets throw in W1A : Splinter Group brunch 2 - Languine is on the menu with spuds you like

level with us
Simon Harwood: Somerset levels...the clue is in there somewhere..

Tracey Pritchard: Flat. Flat, bloody flat

David Wilkes: Levels right are..for like, you know, only for the level headed?

Simon Harwood: And they are to know and we are to find out..and that is our job definitive

Ian Fletcher: Glastonbury Tor is rather high..

Simon Harwood: High enough to see how far the lake goes? You know I do like you more
and more..

Siobhan Sharpe: Here's the thing. Lets plant..a big number of those tall things with nests

Tracey Pritchard: Trees? Have you ever been out of the city?

Ian Fletcher: Poplar

Siobhan sharpe: Whatever, lets say a big number

Ian Fletcher: How big?

Siobhan Sharpe: Throw something at me

Simon Harwood: Say ten full Olympic stadiums of people..that was popular

Ian Fletcher: Um..yes. 1 million.

Siobhan Sharpe: Cool

Ian Fletcher: And all those popular poplar trees will off set the concrete houses and roads that...

Lucy Freeman: Nations build everywhere on flood plains

Simon Harwood: But not on stilts? RSJ's very, very import

Ian Fletcher: Important indeed. Import to whom?

David Wilkes : Ant and Dec..

Ian Fletcher: Who? Are you suggesting Ant and Dec cross borders to the BBC?

Siobhan Sharpe: Lets build four storeys high. Float on air bags. Go hover somerset wa-hay

Simon Harwood: That is a great Grand Design concept can we do a grand re-float?

Ian Fletcher: Poplar by Design?

Simon Harwood: Yes..ooh you are on the money

Ian Fletcher: Wait. No...on second thought it would be an eyesore? Height would be an issue

Tracey Pritchard: What Four storeys is higher than a wind farm? Farmers having no planning
                            permission to erect monstrosities all over the place

Simon Harwood: The crime rate is literally going sky high..apparently

Ian Fletcher: No. Lets not dredge up that topic

Siobhan Sharpe: Sail away, sail away, sail away...Enya

Simon Harwood: Stunning absolutely stunning track great atmospherics

David Wilkes: From Fiji and Bali take me to lands I've never seen?

Simon Harwood: ..reminds me of my holidays

Ian Fletcher: Quite

Simon Harwood: And of my air miles, they've flown away somewhere must count them up

Ian Fletcher: Well were not on holidays or vacations we are slowly digesting our next course..

Siobhan Sharpe: Of flapjacks..

Ian Fletcher: Can truth and values can sit together?

Simon Harwood: Not even on the same bench. Don't try and square a peg where none are wanted

David Wilkes: Or half way across East Anglia..

Ian Fletcher: Do they have sand dunes?

Siobhan Sharpe: Total wipe out zone totally

Tracey Pritchard: It'd be an eyesore

Ian Fletcher: Sand does tend to blow in one's eye

David Wilkes: Ford Anglia was an ugly car wasn't it?

Simon Harwood: Everyone would complain about the new builds. Understandable really new
homes are boring aren't they. None have chimneys anymore funnily enough..wonder why

David Wilkes: Especially if you drove a Ford Anglia in East Anglia too that would be uglier

Ian Fletcher: Has anyone heard of Edwin Lutyens?

Lucy Freeman: What has this got to do with Somerset and why don't I have more to say here?!

Ian Fletcher: Have you seen the costs?

Tracey Pritchard: Not your paycheck obviously

Simon Harwood: Lutyens re-developed Delhi didn't he? Last time I was in India I was in Bombay - long time ago now. What's it called again now?

David Wilkes: Mombassa

Tracey Pritchard: That's Kenya totally different continent altogether!

David Wilkes: Oh, right getting confused..sorry

Siobhan Sharpe: African sanctus is a total flip out universe...Fanshawe one world lets rock that juice

Ian Fletcher: Mumbai

Simon Harwood: Mumbai..yes now that rings a bell. Thank you

Ian Fletcher:  Now Siobhan how much for clear up costs in the Somerset flats..levels

Siobhan Sharpe: 100 million pounds and zero pence. Dredge of a wedge!

David Wilkes: Wow! Like that's, like less you know than the beeb pays in Salford rates

Ian Fletcher: Really? That's more than my wage packet

Tracey Pritchard: Careful Ian. That's less than cleaning up the Nuclear Energy industry

David Wilkes: Are we sending in the Top Gear team..I mean they survived Chechnya right?

 Tracey Pritchard: was Chernobyl and how they survived that I'll never know

Ian Fletcher: Whats the  cost? I mean for the Energy clean up 

Simon Harwood: Why don't you interject here Lucy

Lucy Freeman: Thanks. About time..20 billion pounds

Ian Fletcher: Unbelievable...

Simon Harwood: Imagine that in a De La Rue money warehouse. Crisp notes..on the wrong paper

David Wilkes: Like what we spend on Dr Who..

Ian Fletcher: Go on

Lucy Freeman : The cost of Trident?

Tracey Pritchard: 20 to 35 billion pounds depending on who to believe

Lucy Freeman: Including planes and aircraft carriers..

Ian Fletcher: To replace it?

Tracey Pritchard: With what - harsh words?

Simon Harwood: Upwards of 120 billion pounds..sorry had to butt in. I had a bigger number. Plum points being a male here.

Ian Fletcher: And the Afghan war?

Lucy Freeman: 35 billions

Ian Fletcher: mmm

David Wilkes: No way! Like that is shocking. Could of meant we needn't of moved to Salford

Simon Harwood: Do you know I was thinking exactly the same thing

Ian Fletcher: How much did the USA spend in Afghan?

Lucy Freeman: Over 350 billion. Ha beat you

Simon Harwood: You know sometimes I just play Simon says...

Tracey Pritchard: Wow bloody wee

Ian Fletcher: Combined with Iraq..

Lucy Freeman: Anywhere upwards of 4 Trillion dollars

Ian Fletcher: Is that 4,000 billion or 4 million billion?

Siobhan Sharpe: Google it..

Lucy Freeman: That's a mispelling of Googol

Ian Fletcher: Like misspelling...

Siobhan Sharpe: What about a Toggle? I am so going to .com bubble it..I'll tweet it first

David Wilkes: You can still get decent Afghan heroin on the streets though

Siobhan Sharpe: Cool..T.o.g.g.l.e hashtag

Tracey Pritchard: There's no hero's in Heroin. Can you pass me a rich tea biscuit please. Thank you

David Wilkes: What's safer. Flying kites in India or Afghanistan?

Simon Harwood: Well fighter kites in India are very very dangerous..I think they could quite conceivably replace drones

Lucy Freeman: Warlords are back in vogue

Ian Fletcher: Vogue magazine? Not sure if that's appropriate

Simon Harwood: And they prefer crisp American dollars on the right papers obviously

Ian Fletcher: Obviously

Siobhan Sharpe: And dancing a west end show on broadway

Ian Fletcher: Billy Elliot

David Sharpe: Lets do a musical

Siobhan Sharpe: It'll be a hit

Tracey Pritchard: A one hit wonder more than likely

Lucy Freeman: Those Taliban make 400 million a year from opium

Ian Fletcher: I can see a correlation

Simon Harwood: Why are we in a recession again?

David Wilkes: Were not in charge of selling opium?

Tracey Pritchard: Don't be bloody stupid. You get more from selling guns and hospital drugs

David Wilkes: No I do not..that is untrue. I do have a BB gun though

Lucy Freeman: The NHS costs 120 billion a year to run

Simon Harwood: And De La Rue has run out of money...

Ian Fletcher: Does it include consultancy fees?

Lucy Freeman: No. It's mostly over priced drugs and unnecessary nose jobs...

Simon Harwood: Now who's paying people £300 a day to be told something they already know? Don't  quote me on that..lets be civil. I've just taken a random amount out of the thin blue air

Tracey Pritchard: I blame that embarrassing bodies programme.. wouldn't you be embarrassed being on it. Stupid people.
Ian Fletcher: And to save the coal industry?!

Tracey Pritchard: 10 million grandfathers turning in his grave

David Wilkes: You can win that one from a roll over..I said I did Thunderball didn't I

Siobhan sharpe: I do euro millions..I'll win what they're giving away

Ian Fletcher: Mmm quite ..yes I see the figures do have peaks and troughs

Tracey Pritchard: A right pigs ear of a trough more bloody likely

Siobhan Sharpe: They're not popular here..troughs are for horses

David Wilkes: Were eating out of sushi bowls..carbonara anyone

Ian Fletcher: Pigs ears? I don't quite follow

David Wilkes: Like that's all we need. Pigs that fly..parmesan! I just luuurve parmesan

Simon Harwood: Pink Floyd over Battersea with new glass and RSJ's hopefully..pre-fab Malaysian

Siobhan Sharpe: How low can you go...limbo, limbo, limbo.

David Wilkes: And I'll raise my arm only if you put a pretend coin in my armpit

Ian Fletcher: old oak would do? We need to be on the same level

Tracey Pritchard: No, not this one

Simon Harwood: Jokes don't grow on trees do they?

Ian Fletcher: They..just appear?

Lucy Freeman: Like tears in the rain..

Siobhan Sharpe: Cool!

Shakespeare : Man to Man of wit and to woe

  Man to Man X years olde

Well thespians...twas in Charlestown me thinks where but a wench did fall between the
ropes of yore..and upon her crestfallen cry the crowd did break with good cheer and
merryment for all was night a glorious night where upon a film did partake these shores.
        Man to Man whose story struck the slave driven story, whose malevolent demons lurk in
mans cruelty to thy neighbour. Alas only but in the eyes of God? No man shall be but an equal?
        What benefit to man if no man is of equal merit? A quest long in shadow for it casts a
manifest blind eye to those whose foul wanton deeds provide salacious cruelty upon virgin sands.

Nay **Spolier **
Cries of anger boil over. What sayeth you? A murder upon the sails? An angry mob run amok
to sin. Their only skill to run hoof clad over cobble stones.
Twas but a background...

Captured in two all night shoots the Peels boy in blue stepped aside to let Messers Fiennes
a fine fellow indeed. Whom did appear seven years previous in mine love of shakespeare.
Joy to all great comedy wherein the scribe is but a jester of court. I jest, Shakespeare in
Love. Until Elizabeth reigns on my parade. Thus was cast, truly a fine performance.

As for the day before the eyes of said film extra. (Nay, pauper he of short wit and dim means)

Strange lights as hot as sun and measurements of not height but distance taken? He stands to wait...
So doeth Mrs Scott-Thomas of Gosford Park and Random Hearts did play upon his emotions
for here twas the lady left in pains of the English Patient.
            Crystal eyed she sailed and he upon her river. Ah but if film be the fool of love..

Whilst amongst the cast Messers Bonneville ah yes mighty Hugh with lens to cap 'Just a little
keepsake, you don't mind do you?' he requested with his optics of capturing moving time to play.

Upon a break of afternoon the day was long and tobacco earnt..'Lunch time now I should 
suppose' spoken like a true gent of his Fiennes age. And we strode par unison for a while...
posed until seated director Regis Wargnier requested a carriage scene.

To wax lyrical on through the night if I may only a few deck casts were still on scene and this Peel too...twas the instrument of woe plagued our ships crew. And many scenes in space were taken.

For at dawn the day did rise again.

And as I sat upon the harbour wall alone to ponder twice nights fixations. I say to thee 'Twas a merry dance and one I'd oft to see' 

                    (yeah, I know I don't understand Shakespeare either! Happy 450th and all)
