Boy George I Think He’s Right

& other blogging updates!

BoyGeorge: Sometimes a syllable or just a hat can make someone hostile towards you but you can't live without either!

Tom_In_Oz_: @BoyGeorge what have your hats done now?? Who did they offend??? x

BoyGeorge: @Tom_In_Oz_ I just mean you cannot predict the lunacy of other people and what bothers them!

Tom_In_Oz_: @BoyGeorge This is true and sometimes a harmless thing is taken the wrong way...just no pleasing some people.

Mavro_Arni: @BoyGeorge @Tom_In_Oz_ Someone posted that those who matter, don't mind. And those who mind, don't matter. Water off a duck's back, mate.

marcuswhitney1: @Tom_In_Oz_ and too you Tom.

 The eight boys are dear friends of mine and people that I’ve grown to know and love, and we’re gonna spend an intense part of our lives together and I will probably hate them by the end of it.

Dropped due to smog

Beautiful_Train: Looks like I'll have to postpone my run around the common due to "Smog"?

Tom_In_Oz_: @Beautiful_Train Cooo-Eeee Gavin, wouldn't it be easier to just eat easter eggs and go into a glucose induced coma for a few hours xxx

Beautiful_Train: @Tom_In_Oz_ That also sounds like a good alternative!

Tom_In_Oz_: @Beautiful_Train I have a chocolate buzz hangover kids at school game a couple of kilos worth - all good! Have a Happy Easter.

Beautiful_Train: @Tom_In_Oz_ and you too Sir!

NB. Gavin Toomey mentioned as @Beautiful_Train in the preceding Twitterlogue is the director you see at the very top of this blog in a picture standing near Russell Tovey. The picture was from when they made the short film "Drop." You can view "Drop" here on the blog but you will need to go back a few pages.

Tom_In_Oz_: @Wyndamere good mate, I blog at BH central sometimes, but run the Tovey blog as well. It is full of Being Human stuff.

Wyndamere: @Tom_In_Oz_ I heard that Tovey is like a son to you I need to know, why is his ears so sexy, my wife loves his ears can u explain??

Tom_In_Oz_: @Wyndamere without being too rude the hearsay is, his partner uses them 4 handles lol *wink* also he looks like a puppy which is perfect 4 playing a werewolf x

sage_from_oz: @Tom_In_Oz_ @Wyndamere Oh Wyndy, word of warning. If you talk to Tom you will probably get your words immortalised on his blog.

Wyndamere: @sage_from_oz @Tom_In_Oz_ awesome, you can quote me. I think Sinead Keenan is as yummy as a cupcake and deserves a golden cupcake. My wife is the same height as SK and I love my awesome wife.

sage_from_oz: @Tom_In_Oz_ @Wyndamere Lol he does look like a puppy!

Wyndamere: @Tom_In_Oz_ handles , I can kind of imagine that , yes I see why my wife likes his ears now, something to hold on to, well cheers.

Russell is out with a lot of others

MichaeljonF: Oh no. @russelltovey went to Soho house and I'm not a member :(

hamer30: @MichaeljonF what are you doing out with him & why didn't he sign you in to Soho house?

MichaeljonF: @hamer30 He is just leaving...OK...I might have just touched @russelltovey in a slightly inappropriate fashion. It was good!!

adamlannon: @MichaeljonF what happened?

MichaeljonF: @adamlannon Nothing. #shame

Neil_Pen: @Tom_In_Oz_ @chrisgolds I saw Mr Tovey tonight in Soho and said, "Oh look it's Russell Tovey" very childish of me!

Neil_Pen: @Tom_In_Oz_ I really wasn't.

Blogging from Bristol

It’s day 2 in Bristol for our intrepid Tovey Blog contributor @RealMitchell1 and she has been on a pilgrimage to the Being Human locations and sets. She was at the pink house in Totterdown the other day and today she visited the caves along the edge of the river. She paused briefly to tweet us an update.

RealMitchell1: @Tom_In_Oz_ g'day! Day 2 of the BH roadtrip.

RealMitchell1: @Tom_In_Oz_ Seeing all BH sights incl. Russ's day job!

sage_from_oz: @RealMitchell1 @Tom_In_Oz_ Brilliant pics RM! Good work finding Russell's day job lol!

Tom_In_Oz_: @sage_from_oz @RealMitchell1 Not bad having a roving reporter on the ground or in the field...x

sage_from_oz: @Tom_In_Oz_ @RealMitchell1 We have BH spies all across the world. A growing network.

Below: You may recognise the following 3 location shots of places in Bristol from the UK TV show Being Human. They are the doors to the CENSA buildings and the manmade caves along the river edge where the vampires gathered.

With so many celebrity weddings currently in the news, the Royal Wedding and my own daughter’s wedding at the end of May 2011, I decided to post some happy wedding snaps from the Tovey album.

The following pictures are from a blog contributor who is best described as: "currently not in England."

Above: The two brothers Daniel and Russell Tovey, on the occasion of Daniel's wedding.

Above: Russ at his brother's wedding doing a little recitation with rose in hand....a smaller version of this picture can be found elsewhere on the blog. It was posted in 2010.

Above: The rose being reset.

Above: Russell Tovey carrying out his duties as Best Man.
