Welcome back Charlie's Londoners



Hi all,

I am so sorry for the long delay in writing another post for you. I have been super busy lately with various Charlie and research engagements but now I am free to concentrate on a blog post....well, sort of!



For those of you who do not know, Charlie's London was in the audience for the annual Bristol Silents event that is Slapstick 2013. It was an absolute blast! Lots of fun, films and slapstick moments galore with some very close friends and supporters of Charlie's London. In fact there was very little Chaplin at this festival, ok there was next to no Chaplin at this festival apart from one moment.........



Now all you nice people out here who follow Charlie's London on Facebook will know we have this silly moment on Monday's called Fan Girl Monday. How did it start? Well funnily enough it was Christmas eve, everyone was rushing around and doing the normal pre-Christmas mad moment things when I received a message from a Charlie's London follower who said "Tomorrow is going to be a sad day for a Chaplin fan, should we do something today to make it a bit fun". At first I did not know what to do so I decided to look through the page for signs. Then it hit me! Everyone now and then we descend into Chaplinmania! It is like Beatlemania except with less noise (being the silent era, of course!) and no instruments. It always amuses me when I see comments like "Oh wow! I did not know Charlie was so handsome", so with that in mind the decision was made quite easily. Fan Girl Monday was born......

The Fan Girl Monday cover picture!


For any of you unfamiliar with the rules, here goes! Tuesday through to Sunday Charlie's London does what it says on the tin, it posts about Charlie in London or anything related to that. But on Monday everyone can go nuts. We have had Charlie in his bathing suit, Charlie by his swimming pool looking seductive, at the City Lights premiere with Albert Einstein, the infamous Cello picture, the list goes on. Well thanks to the last night of the festival Fan Girl Monday has its next contender because for 30 seconds about 20 minutes into Marion Davies' 1928 film Show People I sat there mesmerised by sight of a certain Mr Chaplin.......



I was really excited by the showing of this film for obvious reasons, yet there were also other elements I was looking for, mostly from the audience. Firstly how many people would recognise Charlie before the title was shown and what would their reaction be? Secondly I was sat with 8 followers of Charlie's London, 5 I knew and 3 I had met for the first time that weekend.  We of course all knew what was coming, My poor partner Kieran (far left in the photo below) knew more than most and just flashed me a knowing smile which I caught out of the corner of my eye just before the musicians struck up for the opening titles.



Charlie's Londoners waiting to go in to see Show People.


The whole festival and a review of it will be featured in Silent London very shortly, so keep your eyes peeled. For now I must say goodbye, but stay tuned because this week I will be talking about an amazing play that I recently visited to do with Charlie's early life in London......

See you soon everyone!

  1. chalke confirm interest in Holtby

    Agen Bola terpercaya indo11.com reported,Schalke chief Horst Heldt has moved to confirm club’s interest in Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Lewis Holtby.
    The talented footballer hinted few days ago that a return to Gelsenkirchen was a realistic possibility, with the German club now admitting their interest.
    Schalke general manager has confessed that Lewis Holtby is one of the players they are currently looking at.
    “We are considering it – and other options,” Heldt was quoted as saying in German daily newspaper Bild, as reported by Indo Eleven.
    However, it looks as though the Miners are pondering a loan deal until the end of the season as they are determined not to go over the budget.
    “We will not break our financial framework,” Heldt added.
    Lewis Holtby, 23, only joined Spurs a year ago, but has since started mere 10 Premier League fixtures for the White Hart Lane outfit.
    Schalke trail fourth-placed Borussia Dortmund by four points, with the Miners priced at 7/4 for a top 4 finish.

  2. Jose Jurado on Swansea radar

    Agen Bola terpercaya indo11.com reported,that Swansea are lining up a bid for Spartak Moscow midfielder Jose Jurado.
    The Liberty Stadium outfit sit mere three points above the relegation zone and they are eager to reinforce the squad in the January window.

    According to Izvestia, Swansea have made Spartak Moscow star Jose Manuel Jurado their number one target.as reported by Indo Eleven.

    The problem is he will not come on the cheap having established himself as a key member of the side that is competing for the Russian Premier League title for the first time after quite a while.

  4. Napoli in new assault on Arsenal star

    Agen Bola terpercaya indo11.com reported,Napoli are lining up a fresh assault on Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen.
    The Azzurri are short of options at the heart of defence and plan to add a high-quality central defender by the end of the January transfer window.

  5. Werder eyeing Juventus starlets

    Agen Bola terpercaya indo11.com reported,Werder Bremen are pondering summer move on Juventus youngsters Domenico Berardi and Luca Marrone.
    The Bundesliga side are on the verge of establishing a cooperation with the Italian giants, with club officials Thomas Eichin and Klaus Filbry having recently held talks with Bianconeri transfer guru Giuseppe Marotta.
    And Bild has now suggested that Werder are hoping to sign Domenico Berardi and Luca Marrone on a season-long loan in the summer.
    Both players are co-owned between Juventus and Sassuolo, and are regarded as some of Italy’s hottest prospects.as reported by Indo Eleven.
    And while Marrone has managed 3 assists in 10 Serie A starts this term, Domenico Berardi has been one of the stand out performers, having bagged 11 goals in 15 league outings.
    Even so, the two players would struggle for playing time if they were to return to Turin, which is why a season-long loan at Werder could be beneficial for all the parties concerned.

  6. West Ham keen on Vermaelen

    Agen Bola terpercaya indo11.com reported,that West Ham United have been linked with a move for Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen.
    The Hammers slipped into the relegation at the weekend following their 3-1 defeat to Newcastle United – their sixth defeat in eight games in all competitions.
    They have conceded no less that twenty-five goals in that run, and are desperate to strengthen their back line, which has been decimated by injuries to George McCartney, Guy Demel, Joey O’Brien and Winston Reid.as reported by Indo Eleven.
    Vermaelen has struggled to hold down a first team place in Arsene Wenger’s side so far this season due to the continued form of centre-back pair Per Mertesacker and Laurent Kosciely, who together helped the league leaders to yet another clean sheet at the weekend.
    The Belgium international has started just six times in all competitions, with just three of those coming in the league, and is keen to keep himself in Marc Wilmot’s thoughts ahead of this summer’s World Cup finals.

Dia suka melakukan rotasi skuat dan melakukan pergantian pada tim tergantung lawan yang dihadapi. Ini merupakan satu hal yang luar biasa, (Eto'o) merupakan seorang yang genius. Dia melakukan yang telah biasa dilakukannya, mencetak gol," imbuhnya.

  15. Balotelli Tak Akan Pernah Jadi Pemain Kelas Dunia

    Berita terbaru dan terkini Bola Soccer dari Agen Bola Indo11 –Milan - Mario Balotelli kerap disebut-sebut sebagai calon bintang AC Milan sekaligus timnas Italia. Tapi ada eks pemain kedua tim itu yang menilai Balotelli bukan bintang seperti yang orang-orang bilang.

    Sejak memainkan debutnya bersama Inter Milan di Serie, Balotelli memang kerap jadi pembicaran banyak orang tapi lebih karena tindak-tanduknya di luar lapangan dan perselisihannya dengan Roberto Mancini serta Jose Mourinho.

    Agen Bola Indo11 Terpercaya –Bahkan ia juga sempat bersitegang dengan suporter Inter karena membantin jersey tim asal Mode itu. Pada 2011 Balotelli pergi ke Manchester CIty dan kondisnya tak berbeda jauh.

    Meski mampu mengantar City jadi juara di musim kedua penuhnya tapi tetap Balotelli sepertinya sulit untuk berubah. Ia masih saja terus membuat masalah hingga berseteru dengan Mancini selaku manajer.

    MIlan jadi persinggahan pemain 23 tahun itu. Setelah debut mengagumkan di enam bulan pertamanya, penampilan Balotelli relatif naik-turun termasuk saat melawan Atletico Madrid kemarin.
