Hey there Blog Hoskins!


Many months ago a young man named Tom Carstairs wrote to me asking if he could make a video for my 'This Week in Grazia' song for his A-level media studies course. There's nothing Adam and I like more than feeling self important, so the answer was an immediate and unequivocal YES! Fast forward to RIGHT THIS MOMENT and here is the video that Tom made, with the help of his friends Jess Shields and Emma Jones. Props must also be issued to Tom's media tutor Tristan, who is clearly every bit as brilliant and imaginative as his students. Everyone involved gets a quadruple 1st in Advanced Audio-visual Waffle Studies from the University of Adam and Joe! What an accolade. Congratulations!


Music Video for A Level Media Studies - Directed by Tom Carstairs and Emma Jones.


Song - This Week In Grazia by Joe Cornish Written for Song Wars on BBC 6 Music.


Starring Tom Carstairs and Jess Shields

    Brilliant! Good job :D
    Me and my mum are thinking of performing a A+J song :)

    Where can I get one of those bendy keyboards?

  • Comment number 3.

    Adam and Joe really ought to create social network (it's all the rage these days) where all the creative people who listen to their show can hook up and collaborate.

    The musical types would get the video types to make videos
    The drawing types (me!) would get the animators to collaborate on sexy animations.
    The not-so-creatives could just hook up for sexy bath and doctor fun times.

    And if there were any awkward silences while making projects or while taking a sexy bath with a fake sexy doctor you could always fill it with A&J show chat, or argue about the epistemology of Boggins.

    [I like the word epistemology. I don't know what it means or even how to use it correctly but PHD students seem to use it constantly. The use of a PHD-student-type word should hopefully add weight to my brilliant social networking idea.]

    Brilliant! Well done Tom, Jess and Emma. Good acting work all round!

  • Comment number 5.

    Wow! That tickled me when it was just shooting up my ear tunnels. It's even ticklier now it's in my eyes as well!

  • Comment number 6.

    Thanks everyone!!!

    Me and Emma were the creative powerhouses and Jess did the grunt work (she's in need of an Oscar at least for that performance), along with me singing terribly along to the song.
    The feedback's been great, and helps with our Evaluation we have to do as part of the coursework (if anyone else wants to help out 2 students, then any more feedback would be excellent!).
