    Edward Picot wrote a new blog: "Dr Hairy and the QCQ, Part 10".
    The concluding episode of the current series.   Dr Hairy is cornered by the vengeful Dr Stead, who wants to know why he said 'bollocks' to the QCQ. Luckily, Dr Hairy remembers Grabber's advice about pleading insanity - with hilarious ...

    Oh please don't be doomy. And Blockchain is not the same as Bitcon. Bitcon uses Blockchain technology, but Blockchain has much wider and more valuable potential wherever groups of businesses/organisations want a shared/secure/trusted record of ...

    Barny, You're right, of course, the tone of this is a lot different from the puppet-animations. That's partly because of the way it was created, working from cut-ups of other people's texts; but also partly because of the subject-matter and my own ...

    I find your animations a lot more, err, human, that this piece, Edward. And it's we humans who will apply the technology of Blockchain (or guns, or wheels) in dehumanising/exploitative ways, nothing evil about technology per se.

    I'm pleased and relieved to hear about your substrate, Barny. And thanks for taking the time to look and comment, both of you.

    Interesting. Thrive in death? I'll have to think about that one.

    Y-e-e-e-s. Speaking as someone who - and this is a true story - one Friday night transformed into a sentient plant(oid?) I just want to say thay my substrate is not in the least detached.

    The ninth in a new series of puppet-animations about the adventures and misadventures of an ordinary (but rather hirsute) GP.  Dr Hairy goes to visit his Mum, accompanied by his daughter Jenny. Dr Hairy's Mum appears surprisingly ...

    "Edward Picot" commented on mike's Blog "review,".
    I liked it. They've introduced a theme of colour which wasn't there at all in the original as far as I can remember: in the adaptation, the Schlegels have a black maid, and Bast has a black mistress/partner. Likewise Mr Wilcox's money has been made ...

    I like the common touches - the mention of hairgrips and feng shui. It makes your absurd arguments all the more real, especially as your spacemen seems to have some sort of hairgrip himself. I watched in on utube accessed from your site, ...

    Thanks for the responses, guys. Yes, the QCQ is a CQC reference. And yes, I do have lots of fun making these: I'm glad if that comes across. Mike - another way to access the videos, if you can be bothered, is to go to my website, ...

    Dear Edward, I was unable to look at your video, I coped and pasted the two eels at the end of the post and got the companies. The other ones did the same and I wasn't sure what do do next. I think I am one of those people who are increasingly ...

    You have fun with your stuff which is great. I don't know whether you write as well - sure you must do. QCQ. Is this a CQC care/crying joke? Anyway, life would be dull without one of these every so often.
