I get the feeling the cameraman would have been happy either way...

Another ballsy Russian!

Original Story here

A Russian man, paralysed after a climbing accident, who was being driven up the wall waiting for the local council to install a lift at his home has now built one himself.

Now when he wants to get into or our of his fifth floor flat - wheelchair-bound Dmitry Bibikow, 32, from Voronezh simply lowers a winch and is raised up the side of the house - with wheelchair - to the balcony of his home.

He said: "When I bought the flat I had been told an elevator would be built - but after waiting six years I decided to take matters into my own hands."

With the help of friends, the former sky diver and mountaineer built his own personal lift to haul him up the side of the building. It can be operated by hand or electronically.

He added: "Living on the fifth floor without a lift was a nightmare because I couldn't get in or out of the block without someone's help. It was like being in a prison - so I decided to sort it out myself."

Now married dad of one Dmitry says he can get in and out within minutes and can even beat his neighbours to the fifth floor.

I must be in a good mood! Normally, this would be considered far too cute. 
I'd have to hand in my membership card for the international Bloke's council, and pull 
out of the running for manly man of the year just for watching it, let alone posting it!

Sir Ken Robinson: Schools kill creativity

Just a little something

A couple of years ago I was in a short film which has just been released. Last week I went along to the premiere with James and we made this little clip.

More Steve a'comin!

We have a few tasty treats lined up in the works. Oh yes, tasty indeed.
Tasty as the tastiest tart in a totally tasty tart tourney! Oh YES!

Did you think I was going to just DISAPPEAR!?


My ego, (and mortal fear of obscurity) ALONE compel me to seek the limelight! Let alone the burning need I have to spread the message! The very important message! A vital, life altering, soul saving message!

I'm not quite sure what that is just yet, but that doesn't stop me proclaiming it at high volume in public areas!

If you count the internet as a public area.

In short, and in the words of a certain tin plated ass kicker:

"Come with me if you want to live!"

No wait, that's not right.

"I'll be back!"

Yes, that's the one.
