Me and my new flat mate Henry
So I rescued a piano and moved him into my spare room!
The piano was left in the empty property we shot Bitten in, along with the detritus of the previous tenants - including her wedding dress, the vac, toaster, all the rubbish in the bins, and too many cotton buds and sanitary towels! ( damn chavs!)
The workmen were going to just chuck it in the skip!! And I couldn't bear the thought of that as piano smashing is right up there with book burning in my personal list of high crimes and treasons; so after the shoot, I hired a van and roped 3 friends into helping me carry it up 4 flights on stairs (thanks to Dave, Barry, and Chris!). All sorts of bruises and pulled muscles abound as we had a Chuckle Brothers moment "To me....to you....to me...to you!"
It was fooking filthy and I had to spend hours spring cleaning it lol. But now, I am the owner of a white! up-right piano! :)
I posted on a forum that I had a piano, and someone asked me what its name was. That was a tough one as I never name inanimate objects (and usually think only silly people do that), but I had a think about it and decided to call him Henry, an obviously good name for a piano (well I couldn't have called him Nigel now, could I?) And it had to be a boys name now as well ;)
So I told me friend the pianos new name, and he mailed back to say, what was the name of the make of the piano!! Yes I felt silly lol
And the final point....it not even a proper white piano. The chavvy fuckers painted it white!!! Its been Duluxed!! Oh well, he's still luverly!! ;)
