Viva La Bam

Starring Bam Margera, April Margera, Phil Margera, Ryan Dunn, Raab Himself, Tim Blomb, Brandon DiCamillo, Rake Yohn and Don Vito. On MTV

This is Bam who began skating and hurting himself in Johnny Knoxsville’s Jackass and now has his own show doing various silly stunts and winding up his parents.

To be honest, I have just finished watching season 5 (and the last) Viva La Bam from America, but I think the 4th one is being shown at the moment – the one where they go round several other countries. Although it’s still worth watching, this season is no where near as funny or as shocking as previous shows. And as each one goes on, it becomes more and more obvious that the bit they show at the beginning as their “spontanious idea” was clearly filmed after it had all happened.

Well season 5 isn’t much better when it comes to that sort of thing and I am very suspicous about which bits were set up and which bits the family are just acting for the cameras and sometimes it’s just obvious. Throughout this series I definitely laughed a lot more than I did in 4 – so if you’ve been put off by the one you’re watching now – don’t give up on the next one, it is much better. Unfortunately they still include Don Vito in several stunts ( I really really don’t find him amusing in the slightest) but there is less of him, which is good. It was also clear that by the end they were starting to run out of ideas. “I know, lets have another war” and “I know, lets invite our rock star friend to join us and conveniently fill an episode”.

But despite Bam loving himself more and more, the stuff he gets up to is very funny and worth watching.

The romance of a well
November 18, 2016
I was pretty much brought up on Enid Blyton and it instilled in me a desire to live in a cute cottage in a countryside village. A well in the garden would be an added bonus. Well, although more of a farmhouse than a cottage, I am lucky enough to have fulfilled that dream. We were told by the previous owner that the well in the garden used to also serve the farmworkers’ cottages opposite. The path leading from the well to an iron gate half way down the garden would suggest that’s true. We live at the top of a hill, and as far as I’m aware, the only other well at the top of the hill in Somerset is in a small village called Kilmersdon, which is famous for the Jack and Jill nursery rhyme. Wouldn’t it be cool if that’s a mistake and it was actually our well? Haha!….
Is it time to start making an effort?
November 23, 2016
Fashion and Beauty are terms that generally go hand in hand, particularly when describing the genre for some bloggers. However, whilst I am always interested in what’s on the catwalk, I can’t honestly say I’m all that bothered about ‘beauty’. I like looking at the craftsmanship of couture clothing, but I’m not rushing out to buy the latest eyeshadow primer. I suppose my interest has increased in the last six months or so when I’ve started blogging and making You Tube videos and my image is out there a bit more; and it got me thinking about how I’ve thought about beauty products over the years and how it’s changed…..
Anti-reflective coating on your glasses – is it worth it?
October 9, 2016
Whenever I’m recording a You Tube video in my work-room, all I seem to do is spin round in circles trying not to have massive white rectangles on my glasses. They somehow even manage to appear with my back to the window! When Chris is taking photos for my Weekly Wardrobe posts, we’ve more-or-less given up with glasses, so I stumble about blind for the sake of not having glaring white blobs in the middle of my face. (Hashtag blogger problems.) I am so short-sighted, I cannot see a thing without them, and I hate that feeling so much. So finally, even though there was nothing particularly wrong with my glasses, I decided to splash out and buy a new pair with anti-reflective coating….
