Following on from the last cryptic post. I had this idea about adopting the personna of a character in the widely loved childrens television programme 'In the Night Garden'.
Or from a parents perspective a programme widely loved by children if not themselves. Actually I'm rather fond of it to be honest although I know many peers whom it drives to distraction.
It's a programme lots of other characters that one could be a touch satirical with. For example the lead character Iggle Piggle is a large blue teddy bear with a moon face. One could argue a little like the current leader of Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition.
There are loads of other characters you could have enormous fun with. Well until the lawyers from the production company came a calling. For example two families with eight children each living next door to each other. A vehicle to be censorious with if ever there was one. And it was the character of one of the fathers that I had toyed with the idea of ' becoming'.
But technicalities started to get in the way. My blooming blog log and the wrong avatar appearing on sites visited and all sorts of other complications that I hadn't considered when trying to be two characters on the same blogger account. Having messed around I seem to have now lost the monster avatar appearing on MBL and I'm stuck with the dull grey smiley face appearing when I visit anyone else.
This is probably more to do with me being technically inept rather than a real impediment as I'm sure you may be quick to point out.
But for the time being I will have to return to being an 'armless monster and the adoption of stop motion characteristics may have to wait.
