DIY Taxidermy (not for the squeamish or delicate)


As some of you will know Derrens extensive taxidermy collection extends from the small and bizzare to the rather large and … well bizzare. The constant request of how to skin a badger can get overwhelming at times but finally someone came to our rescue and now you too can get involved with instructables own guide to creating a Duck Mouse, a Mouse Mouse and the essentual Bird Taxidermy (WARNING:Not for the easily offended, overly squeamish, holier that thou, fuss-bucket.)

If you do attempt any home taxidermy please remeber to take care, not to eat anything thats not really fresh and to send us the photos.


Magicians are way ahead of psychologists?!

According to the Journal Live…

DURHAM University experts have found magicians are better at understanding human beings than scientists.

They joined together with colleagues from Canada to analyse tricks by top performers such as the fantastically well dressed and wonderful Derren Brown and some geezer called Blaine. And they concluded magicians were way ahead of scientists in some areas, including looks, dress sense and witty banter.

FERRYING ACROSS THE MERSEY

As you do. First day of filming, and I shall be meeting our Liverpool medium a little later. We’ll be spending the week together and I’ll be looking at to what extent his quite serious claims really stand up. He’s made a small name for himself, and is typical of many mediums working in the UK. I, as ever, would love it to be true and am hoping he’ll show me things I can’t explain. But his involving himself in murder cases makes me uneasy. I imagine there’ll be some sequences with bereaved parents that I’ll find excruciating. Yet clearly they take much comfort from him. Much to learn, observe and discuss.
