SHY YETI GETS A LILLE OOH LA LA!!

BEHIND THE SCENES OF OUR LILLE TRIP...

Hello beasties!

This week we're heading back to Lille for some photos from our recent trip... I released an episode of the podcast about the trip a week or two ago, but now we have a second behind-the-scenes episode from the same trip. Coming up we have details on that and also on another episode that came out in the last few days.

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 114: THE HOMECOMING OF DRAGON ALBERT!

Here we are for episode 114 - where this time we are very pleased to announce the return of an old friend! Yes, Albert The Dragon is back home and all manner of mischief breaks lose! All this and we also get a chance to catch up with Wifey Jo - hear some more of Mr Yeti's really short stories and... there are other things too; well, there must be, surely!? We would also like to thank Toppie Smellie for arranging for Aunt Tappie to be available for the recording of this episode. Our next show, number 115 returns us to Lille for a rather daft behind the scenes look at our recent trip to France. Do join us, won't you? Please email me at shyyeti@yahoo.co.uk if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it on the show. The music is by Shy Yeti and Luca. Sounds effects by Shy Yeti and Soundbible. All content of this episode is Copyright Paul Chandler, 2017. Episode 114 was recorded between the 8th September and 3rd October 2017.

As mentioned, our second episode is our behind the scenes episode from our recent visit to Lille (which appeared as episode 112), but you'll find a few familiar voices joining Harry and I on our trip.

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 115: A LILLE BIT OF OOOH LA LA!

Here we are for episode 115 - where we head back to Lille for an alternative view of the recent events of episode 112; recorded behind the scenes at the same time - but with added Ikk, Yeti Uncle John and Cromitty! There are also poems... Thanks also to Harry F and Toppie Smellie for arranging for Aunt Tappie to be available for the recording of this episode. Our next show, number 116 should be a recording of our 14th live Pride48 show, as broadcast on Sunday 15th October (4pm EDT/9pm GMT). Do join us, won't you?

Here are some photos from our weekend away!
























 











I hope you enjoyed the photos! There will be more from our next overseas trip in November!!

Over the last few days I've been working on a number of other episodes - some of them related to Halloween or my birthday, but one or two that will appear later in November approaching Christmas.
Next time there will be more about podcasts and we'll be getting closer to my next trip to Italy; although strictly speaking that isn't until early November... There will also be another interview between me and THE BEARGRRIAN GAZETTE!

Take care - more soon, Yeti hugs,

Paul (aka Shy Yeti) xx

Harry and I had a lot of fun in Lille - and we hope you enjoy the episode that we made all about that trip! Here are all the options that we finally rolled - at some point I may share all of the choices that were presented us, as there will be a very silly "behind the scenes" sequel to this episode coming out soon - and I may have one or two photos for the blog too. Anyway... These are the options rolled:
  1. Film yourself in a public square reading I will eat pies in a French accent. (Calum)
  2. Take comedy photos in front of as many statues as you can find in your time limit. (Steve)
  3. Find a lovely cafe, sit down and have a nice cup of coffee and have a chat. (Misc)
  4. Talk nonsense in a gallery... (Jo)
  5. Find a patisserie, order a selection and enjoy. (Karen)
  6. Eat snails. (Benz)
Our final episode of this post brings us back to British shores as some of the team head to a convention celebrating classic television...

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 113: LIGHTS! CAMERAS! NOSTALGIA! 

Here we are for episode 113 - where this time we head to a convention for classic TV, where Bettina and Dameus are two of the guests! There are also poems - Nick and Paul discuss the similarity between tapezines and podcasts and Toppie Smellie wonders about Aunt Tappie's unexpected friendship with Ikk The Alien! To find out more do please join us! Thank you to Nick G and Toppie S for their contributions this time around - not to mention some of the other voices that I may have recorded along the way!

So... What did I get up to last weekend?

Recording on the radio was probably the highlight - although that wasn't all... Let me tell you more!





On Saturday 16th September 2017 between 6pm and 7pm I was back on Radio Wey with Tim Mitchell and Nathan Jones performing my poems - this time I ready from my 2006 collection, POEMS TO MAKE BEARS GROWL and read the following pieces.

ALTERNATIVE LIFESTYLES
A NIGHT ON THE TOWN WITH A YETI
KEEP THIS TO YOURSELF
WRITE ABOUT WHAT YOU KNOW

I did record audio of the events and have some extra bits to record to accompany it still to do, so I'm not sure, quite when I'll be putting the episode out - probably not until October or November; we'll see. We had discussions after to recording and if all goes to plan we'll be meeting one last time during 2017; probably in mid-December.

Other than a trip to Kingston Upon Thames for a bit of retail therapy (I bought pens and cards from Paperchase, but that was about all) my highlight of Sunday was doing September live Pride48 show. It was a pretty freaky episode set aboard Ikk's space-ship, with a number of plot twists and a good view of Uranus! Especial thanks to Trowby, Lisa, Toppie and "Lucky 13" for helping keep things busy in the chat-room during the show.




Next time we'll be discussing my forthcoming trip to Lille with Harry - there will probably be photos and if all goes to plan then there will be audio too... 

Take care - more soon,

Yeti hugs,

Paul (aka Shy Yeti) xx


That hat is really far too small for you, Mr Yeti... Never mind...
