Happy Christmas Pooters!

We here at WOP would like to wish everyone a very happy Christmas - have fun and see you all again in the new year!

Poot On!

WOP Christmas: The Two Daves Special!

Yes - it's now officially Christmas! Once the beer starts to flow in the Dave household - well that could be any day to be honest - but they have hats this time so it must be Yuletide.
Join them and celebrate the wonderful time that is Christmas and the close of 2011. What a year it's been for them - now that they are on a legal high, surely nothing would rock their world in the bad sense....would it?

Tune in!

WOP Christmas: Artbear

Our furry art expert is back again, this time for a seasonal special. Due to contractual binding, this episode sees him visit a few sick toys in hospital. Can Artbear spread the Christmas cheer with his drawings...?

Find out!*

WOP Christmas: Nev's Book!

Christmas is a time for a lot of things....toasting the year, feasting, relaxing next to a cosy fire with a glass of something warming.....and the like.
For others, it's a time to milk the cash cow and get some cash in. Nev is plugging this - his new book from WOP Publishing (£49.99 rrp) .

''The book is a 'celebration' in it's own rights.'' Neville said. ''It's all about my kind of people, the hard working trainspotters up and down the country tirelessly and in all weathers, going out looking for train numbers. What bravery!''

Here is a preview of what to expect should you want to purchase it.....

The cover...nice!

''Nice stance on this fellow, quite casual but at the same time - breathtakingly focused.''

''This chap is missing all the action going on behind him! I bet he kicked himself, she looked a beauty too.''

''Lovely long platform this....must be offering this lucky chap quite the spectacle!''

''Strictly for the foolhardy spotter this one - the risks some of 'em take!''

WOP Christmas: Christmas With Neville

It's hard to believe but it'll be Christmas in a month! To kick start the seasonal specials off, we have this delightful insight into how our Nev' deals with Christmas.
Expect more videos and pictures to come over the next few weeks as we build up to the Yule celebrations!

Fireworks Night: Nev's Safety Tips


We all love Fireworks and bonfires at this special time of year but our Nev has highlighted some of the dangers that can be encountered.... Please note: these tips are for entertainment purposes only - not to be taken seriously!!!!! ;)

Neville's Firework Night Safety Tips:

1) Always wear stout shoes. And a nice mac, in fawn.

2) Never use a flask to store rockets - you use those for tea, soups and most hot beverages. I like Horlicks...ooh!

3) Never light a firework with a cheap lighter, you'll be there for hours. Get a good one.

4) Remember to pack sandwiches.

5) Always check the site of a bonfire before lighting - there may be a pair of shoes of mine that I lost there.

6) Fireworks and alcohol don't mix - man up and stick to weak shandy.

7) Hot baked potatoes are nice, look out for those.

8) Get to bed straight after the firework display - remember 'those who dilly dally, often have the grumps' (ancient Chinese proverb possibly).

9) Wear thermal socks, nothing too fancy of course - think practical rather than fashionable.

10) Have fun of course! (In moderation).

Bye for now, Pooters!

Random Street Art ''Bread On Downpipe''.

We here at WOP like to think we have broad minds especially with all things artistic and creative. Our roving eye spotted this piece of 'street art' recently.

Our art expert Artbear commented on this piece (below), claiming this to be the work of another Banksy - but with baked food. ''Bread On Downpipe is an exciting piece of contemporary art, making a statement about humanity and the struggle to be seen and recognized. It invites the viewer to question his/her own values and placement in life's eternal fight for justice in the world of bakeries in general''.

Wise words 'Bear...wise words.


''Bread On Downpipe'' Artist unknown. 2011.

When Signs Go Wrong - Yet Again!

A recent trip to Brighton offered another sign put on display erroneously. The sign states that the ride is closed due to the bad weather.....and yet - not a cloud in the sky!

Bizarre Brighton!


Supermarket Joker

Even WOP is getting in on the latest 'Avengers' hype....Whilst venturing into a local supermarket recently, we noticed that some clever joker decided to do a bit of word play with the products! Thor.....Thaw.....De-Icer.....gedditt?
Very good sir! Worthy of inclusion on WOP we feel!


Things That Look Vaguely Like A Fish No.1


It's amazing how random objects found on a pavement whilst waiting for a bus can look like fish.....

Artbear's Halloween Special

Our furry painter is back for this spooky Halloween special! In this episode the bear receives visions from another plain and conveys them to us through the medium of felt tip pen....

Splendiiiiiiiiiiid!

WOP: 1950's style!

We had a good old dig in the WOP attic and found this lovely bit of vintage televisual advertising! The much loved (and soon taken off the shelves) World Of Poot Hand & Facial Cream. Ah, to be back in the glorious past again before the interweb and fast trousers....

Nev Gets Everywhere....

Our eagle eyed WOP photographer spotted this bizarre poster recently. Proof indeed that our Nev truly is everywhere......scary stuff!




Neville's DVD Review


Our Nev' has returned from a recent car boot tour of the UK. He managed to pick up some excellent DVD'S and is now offering us his unique thoughts as he reviews them!



Title: Trains Of Yesteryear.
Car Boot Fair: Swansea Baths.
''Nice one this to start us off...I liked the cover and the smell of plastic. The video itself plays nicely and there are plenty of BR era stock to keep me happy!'' 8/10



Title: Kent Coast.
Car Boot Fair: Bodmin, behind the bottle bank.
''Funny I should find this in Cornwall! This is a good one, as I live in Kent. So I have a personal affection for this beast. Nice Driver POV footage, commentary is a bit dull and boring - hence the full score! 10/10


Title: 100 Years Of British trains.
Car Boot Fair: Kings Lynn, Two Cocks Car Park.
''What's there not to like about this? A century or 100 years at least of steam! Have It! Lovely.'' 9/10


Title: The Lost Railways.
Car Boot Fair: Bournemouth, near the paint factory.
''This one made me quite whimsical and sad, thinking about lost routes and indeed - lives! I did weep for them, I really did. Very sad. 6/10

Title: Buses, Trams and Trolleybuses.
Car Boot Fair: Kettering Library Car Park.
''Interesting one this - I didn't think I'd like it as there are no trains.... trams are a close second mind. Don't like trolleybuses, they don't know what they want to be. Bus or tram??? I don't like indecision, or at least I don't think I do. Nevertheless - a good watch on a rainy afternoon.'' 7/10


Title: The World's Greatest Railway Journeys: Norway & Finland.
Car Boot Fair: Kidderminster, just by the toilets.
''Unopened and unwatched - but I do like the plastic wrap! I will get round to watching it, but my DVD player is broke''. 5/10 (for the wrapping)


Title: Mr Bean's Holiday.
Car Boot Fair: Birkenhead, next to the bus station (great!)
'' I'm not sure what drew me to this one, it has nothing to do with trains although he does get on one in the film. One of those big American ones, you know? Basically the character is a bumbling nerdy oaf.....I like him''. 9/10

Thanks Nev! I dare say he'll do another review special when he returns from another car boot fair!

Artbear's New Easel!

Our be-furred creative has recently been presented a brand new easel for his work!
Artbear was delighted with his gift saying 'Now I have a proper piece of equipment, I can produce more professional looking pieces of work...'

We asked him what would be his first creation on his new easel.
'Probably something with marks'. 'Bear replied.

We shall no doubt see!


Above: Artbear proudly showing off his new easel.

NEWS: More on Missing Images...

Message From Lobster - Mitch:

Well it does seem that WOP is not the only blog to be affected by images being deleted! Just to recap - you may see that some of the older images here on WOP have been removed and replaced with a black picture with '!' symbol.
It appears that upon after I joined up with Google+, all images I posted are deleted and not recoverable.

For those of you with an account with Blogger - be aware!!!


Videos are unaffected so far, this seems to only apply to images posted on Blogger.
We didn't realise that images for Blogger are hosted by Picasaweb, who in turn are connected to Google.

So the long and short of it is - there is no way to recover images prior to joining Google+, but image posts from now on will be okay. Also Babbington's image posts so far seem to be okay.

There is an in depth discussion on this here for more information!

Happy Pooting Folks!

Bill Ovsayle Interviews...Artbear!

Yes, another new character for you this week! Bill Ovsayle puts the questions to our own 'bear with brush' - Artbear.


video

Artbear's Latest Piece!


Our furry artist has come up with a new piece this week entitled 'Social Angst and Seclusion'.
Mixed media (a bit of charcoal he found behind the bin) on paper. Price £100.000 (O.N.O)

Artbear says 'This is an emotional piece which to me, explores humanity and questions its placing in the social matrix today.'

We thought it just looked like a badly drawn table.

World Of Tat Bloopers!

Following on from World Of Tat, here is a selection of bits and pieces from our gag reel!

video

World Of Tat!

Hey hey antique hunters! It's another new programme with our antiques/tat expert Ray Norshyne! Join him on his quest to sift out the rubbish from the tat.

video

Problem With Images!

There appears to be a technical issue with jpegs on this website - we have trained expert chimps looking into this right now! There may be a bug with Google caches according to the forums. Videos, at this moment seem to be unaffected at least.
Apologies!

However, as the Two Daves would say 'The show must go on!'

UPDATE! I think we've solved the problem with deleted jpegs on WOP. It seems upon joining Google+ archived photos such as the ones here on Blogger are deleted. It also seems there is no way to recover them! Aaargh! We certainly are not amused by this.
Never mind - new jpegs are not affected, just the ones posted prior to joining Google+.
So it seems, although we cannot get the old images back sadly, new posts will be fine :)

WOP At Easter: Wildlife On Wop

Our buck toothed anorak is back! Yes, Neville Cheestring returns to World Of Poot with this wildlife documentary set at Wildwood in Kent.

We caught Nev chomping on a plain crisps sandwich yesterday ''I must admit, I've been away from WOP for a few months now. I thought it would be a good gesture to let the new talent settle in before I come along and be the best thing again.... and I wanted to return with something a little different''

Well, he has.

Now he's back - I dare say we won't get rid of him. Nev added ''I've treated myself to a new pair of glasses and I visited my dentist - so I'm working on a new image too!''

All will be revealed soon enough Pooters!

Meditation....with Artbear!

Our furry artist has decided to branch out from the arts and produce what he hopes, a series of meditation, relaxation and self help/therapy recordings.

This is the first - showing us how to cope with stress and how to relax.....

So find a futon and a bowl of Muesli...it's time to relaxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx...................................

When Signs Go Wronger....

Yet again another sight seeing trip to Ramsgate in Kent produces delightful WOP material! One wonders if there any correctly spelled signs in the town at all - if there is - we haven't seen 'em.
So here's the latest!




One would imagine this must be a very small convenience to allow only one gentleman in at a time. Is there any room for a dryer? Or even a sink? Well, we'll never know - the place was shut. Probably due to overcrowding......

Stayed tuned for more finds!

EJH: The World Of Poot Dance Mix!

We here at WOP are indeed extremely honoured! Mystery DJ EJH has worked tirelessly (without payment *we'll discuss this next week EJH) on this most splendiiiiid dance track which also features the vocal contributions of some of our stars.

EJH insists that this is going to be the hottest sound of the summer. We hope it'll be blasting out at all the clubs across the land - or at least in the toilets.

Enjoy!!!

Head To Head with Artbear

Another vintage find this week! The long running chat show from the 50's came to an abrupt end with this special interview with our very own furry artist Artbear. Hosted by Christmas Bear (Senior), this programme ran for an incredible 74 episodes interviewing the likes of Charles Laughton, Sir Laurence Olivier and even royalty - Martin Luther King.

Ahead of it's time, and with such a warm and witty host - this programme will go down in history as a landmark and pioneering piece of television.

However, five minutes with Artbear proved to be enough!

Enjoy this wonderful piece of history!

Artbear: The Artbear Song

It's Artbear time! Yes, the furry creative has been quiet of late but he's been working tirelessly between getting this song done and paying maintenance to his ex-wife. Not easy for a manic depressive bear!

So here it is - the Artbear Song as sung by the bear himself....... Bear's 80's influences are most noticable on this one but all the better for it. The spandex smock he was wearing in the studio is another matter.

Enjoy!

The Most Popular Bottle Bank In The Country?

Our roving eye once again spots another weird sight! This image was taken by our reporter Grange Sands in Deal, Kent.
''This must be the most popular, sought after bottle bank - even the bottles are queuing up to get in!''

Grange was taken away for a quiet word with the doctor last Tuesday.
