Riff Raff O’Brien

“is @iainobrien any relation to the bald kilted cross dressing Rocky Horror creator Richard O’Brien?” asks Jason on Twitter.

Have to say, Jason, that the statue of Riff Raff erected in 2004 in Hamilton New Zealand does seem to bear out your suggestion….

Kiwi Knits

Steven Finn takes time out of his cricket duties in New Zealand to join forces with Iain O’Brien at the cutting edge of Kiwi high fashion. Hope Tim Murtagh isn’t too jealous

Tweets from Iain O’Brien and Kevin Hand re cricket remakes of Escape to Victory film reminded me of summer online broadcasts with Kevin desperately trying to get a word in edgeways as IOB and (occasionally) Steven Finn rabbited away the hours.  Happy times! Sincerely hope the BBC cuts do not deprive us of more of the same.

The Escape bit… well IOB and Finn have escaped to the windy and wet and cold NZ spring whilst Kevin is condemned to some football wasteland in a warm and sunny November in England….
