And the journey continues ....

The Birmingham Six (well 3 of them) travelled up to Glasgow for the second leg of our Quarter-Final battle just needing 1 point after winning 3-0 at home

It was a lonnnnnnnnng journey so we wisely took the option of arriving a day early just so we could acclimatise

First things first, find hotel ... sorted .. then we could get down to the serious business of roaming the streets and riverbanks of this old shipbuilding, irn-bru drinking, skag-injecting city with our hosts ... dishing out flyers to anyone and everyone we came across

By the time we'd had a Tennants and a Tequila some dude had jumped off the bridge next to the venue in a suicide attempt and a chopper was hovering over us with his spotlight and metal blades blaring us out ... "happens all the time ya ken aye" said the Weegies ... our inspiration was growing ;)

Onto the day of the battle and the Glasgow boys had pulled out all the stops ... with a purpose built Tiki bar in the shared courtyard of two riverside pubs serving malibu filled pinapples ... and a full on paint jam going on all overand around the venue !! DOPE !

So by the time we got the battle kicked off the place was heaving ... great turn out, great crowd .... time to get down to business.

The Brum boys had decided to re-create the previous nights events into the battle piece with the twist being the Glasgow team contemplating suicide after losing out to the Brum Six ....

........ meanwhile ... Reeps1 and Big Taj made noise inside ...

..........some dudes span on their heads

and everybody drank more pinapples .....

The Glasgow team were giving us a GAME OVER warning ....

......... but our peice was good enough for a judge vote and so we progressed even further .. to the Semi Finals where we come up against the original masters ...


A massive shout to all the lads n lassies up in Scotland ... you guys know how to knock out a top notch party ... many new friends made.. BIG luv x

Yes Bournemouth are out, but Southampton are still in it

Just because Bournemouth are out of the Secret Wars Competition, doesn't mean you can't get you're black ink on white board fix. A mere 30 miles away, in a place not so different from Bournemouth, there still remains a team, repping for the South Coast. Southampton face Amsterdam in what will be the decider on who goes through to the Semi Final - details below

The Secret Wars Euro League is coming to an end - The live art battle which boasted 17 European cities has only a few left and guess what....Southampton are still in it!!

Come on Southampton!!!!
Being the only team in the whole competition to lose only one battle, means team Southampton is a real threat and a serious contender to go all the way!! I think it was Samuel Jackson that said in the movie Coach Carter, "Just because we deserve to win, doesn't mean they're going to let us"! Great film and wise words.

So we need all the support we can get!! Remember as well as the judges votes, there's a crowd vote, which is where you guys come in!

There's some serious artistic talent on show, Amsterdam I bringing the big guns. You only have to google these names to get a load of stats and images - Mr K, Wayne Horse, Sjoco Sjon, Via Via, Zender and Chaz from the infamous London Police!!

But Southampton are more than capable of taking them out. Led by team Captain Hicks 54 (www.flickr.com/hicks54), Zadok, Gustav, Mr Dead, Sobac and Smurph are ready and waiting.

We're moving the event from our usual Thursday night slot to a Saturday night - SATURDAY 25TH SEPTEMBER!!

We're also changing the venue - The Monument Gallery -

The historic Bargate Monument, in central Southampton is run by arts organization 'a space'. The organisation strives to provide opportunities for emerging artists and audiences in
Southampton and the surrounding regions to make and engage with
high quality artistic experiences.

So just to clarify, that big castle in the middle of town, is a Gallery and YES you can go inside it. Due to the size, space is very limited, so make sure you arrive nice and early to avoid any kind of heartbreak.

Date: Saturday 25th September 2010
Where: The Monument Gallery (Opposite The Addict Store)
Time: doors open at 7pm - space is limited, so arrive early!
Price: £5 entry!
