Bafta Here I Come

Tomorrow night I will be heading to the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden to attend this year's Orange British Academy Film Awards. No, I haven't been nominated for anything (unfortunately!), but I will be going along as a competition winner. To scoop the prize, contestants had to film themselves reviewing a film. Although I'm not particularly happy with my video, I thought I'd stick it up here as it does follow on nicely from my last Quote for the Week. Enjoy.

Quote for the Week

Royal minds are different to ours, and dangerous.
Being used to giving orders rather than taking them,
They can become outraged – and that rage is slow to cool.
Ordinary life is much better – where everyone's equal.
I hope to grow old just as I am:
Lowly, unremarkable and safe.
Moderation is a lovely word and we should live by it;
it's good for our souls.
Excessiveness brings mortals no advantage. All it does
is draw more ruin on us when the gods are wild.
- Lines 119-130, Medea, Euripides
