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.

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….
Jeremy Loops concert at Perranporth, Cornwall
September 14, 2016
The campervan couldn’t get into the main car park at Perranporth by about three inches, so we parked on the cliff-top, which gave us a beautiful view of the bay and sun beginning to set into the ocean. It isn’t often bands we like venture into the South-West and we were gutted when Jeremy Loops tickets for Bristol sold out before we had chance to buy some; however it was the perfect excuse to go to Cornwall when we saw he was playing there too. We’d never been to The Watering Hole before – it’s a cafe/restaurant/gig venue literally in the middle of the beach. It must’ve been a right pain in the bum to get all the band gear over there! The tickets said the doors opened at nine, so we got there about ten minutes early, sorted out our wrist-bands and bought a drink to sit outside with and watch the sun sink into the water….

Approaching forty – Is it time to take out my piercings?
April 13, 2018
It has been on my mind for a while that maybe it’s time to take out some of the piercings in my face, and as I’m turning forty in a couple of days, I thought now would be a good time to do so! Over the years two other piercings have fallen by the wayside – I took out my belly-button ring when I was pregnant with Jude as it was getting in the way, and (rightly so) I felt my days of showing off my tummy in a crop top were over. Then about four years ago the ball on the end of my tongue piercing came off, and as I didn’t know what size to replace it with, I just took it out. Now don’t get me wrong; I’m a firm believer in wearing whatever the f**k you want, regardless of age, but there are a couple of reasons that have led me to think that it’s time for a change….
My Cornwall photo on canvas! Printed by Printerpix
October 6, 2016
Chris and I are very fussy about art for our walls, and we don’t always have the same taste. We compromise by never ending up getting anything! However, when the opportunity came up to have one of my photographs blown up and printed onto canvas, I was really excited by it. I have a massive 60% discount code at Printerpix for you at the end of this post. I chose a picture I took during our recent campervan trip to Cornwall. The old disused mine is easy to find on the North coast road near Morvah. It’s a popular spot for rock-climbers and hundreds passed us on the footpath towards the cliffs, lugging their gear with them. It was fairly early in the morning when we went photo-spotting, and I turned away from the sea and looked back at this ruined mine building….
