Was interviewed by the news when a high rise caught on fire in Takapuna about 1-2 years ago.
Took the mickey a bit you could say. Wasn't straight faced either.

Been an extra in a few things. The most interesting was being in King Kong, in the theatre audience. Can't see me though.

Haven't had time to watch them fully yet. My first thought was wow Scotland has a heathy film industry. What was the last big hit for Scotland?

It was probably Avengers: Infinity War. There's also an upcoming film with Margot Robbie in it.

An iPhone actually has really decent HD picture. Provided it is outdoors. A poor light source will make videos come out all snowy looking. My mate and I did a daft web series where we are supposed to have died, but are trapped in his house. He eventually admits he has a book on witchcraft, but he hides it from me. Then this demon named Valtiel shows up too.

SWMBO and I are now music video stars.

 

Invited a few weeks ago to be extras, expecting that it was going to be someone shooting video with an iPhone.  But then a truck arrives at the location, loaded with props, lights, scaffolds. The crew was about 10 very professional folks, choreographer/director, the works. 

 

I'm kind of camera-shy, would prefer to remain as anonymous as possible, SWMBO much less so, she's done interviews on "60 minutes" etc, had her mug on the front page of newspapers, worked in radio as an announcer though not even close to suffering "a face fit for radio" as I'd have been limited by - had my life been different and I'd unwisely sought fame and glory,  feeling uninhibited beyond reason by my complete lack of talent and god-given ugliness.

 

Something unsettling became obvious once the crowd of extras had assembled.  Young folks generally look young, and looking amongst the crowd of fellow future music video extra stars, I noticed that every other person (apart from SWMBO) there appeared to be young, only by about 40 years - but also on the opposite end of the scale of natural god-given attractiveness to me, regardless of age.

 

The full impact of the possibility that this was not an accidental coincidence dawned on me. 

 

This guy is not me. I do not want to be this guy. He has been viewed 925,000,000 times on Youtube/Vevo (Smells like Teen Spirit):

 

 

I haven't seen any final cut, I'm mortified.
