A forpe-heart attack?

Massive Fan
I have a theory. Neil Buchanan single-handedly quadrupled the sale of sellotape, newspaper and acrylic paint between 1991 and 2007. Yay or nay?

Yes. It gives your artwork that nice shiny effect.

I think Neil gave up saying that in the last couple of series, because all he says now is 'try it yourself'.

I loved that talking head, but then, I was always a bit of an odd child. I also had a massive crush on a) David Jason, b) Andy Crane, and c) Alan from Thunderbirds.

I hadn't known Art Attack had gone on until 2007. To me, it had ended when I came to Australia, because they'd show it here, but only reruns of the first few series. It hadn't even occurred to me it existed for so long. I was really rather pleased when I found out.

Butting in!

c) Alan from Thunderbirds.

You're now the second person I know that admits to that. I just. That's very odd to me. (Not the idea of you fancying him, I've fancied cartoon characters in my day, but the fact that I know two people that do)

I never liked Scott much, but Virgil was actually my favourite of the Tracy Brothers, even though I didn't crush on him.

Er, do you want my reasoning, or is that too disturbing?
20th-Sep-2009 10:48 am (UTC)
Oh my gosh, I remember Art Attack! I loved it so much. ♥
20th-Sep-2009 10:51 am (UTC)
I love it now!

I haven't watched it for years. Is it broadcasted any more here? I should record it and be a child again.

Phyllis icon win. Massive, massive win.
20th-Sep-2009 10:56 am (UTC)
I don't think so. I acquired it through other means.

And yes! Phyllis! strangeumbrella made it for me a couple of years ago. It is wonderful, I agree.
20th-Sep-2009 11:05 am (UTC)
Damn. Now I won't be at all motivated to find it.
20th-Sep-2009 11:10 am (UTC)
Yes!

I think he's also responsible for people spreading sheets out in fields to try and make huge pictures.

:D Hee! I LOVE the big Art Attacks. If I remember rightly, Rolf Harris once did one that was spectacular too.
20th-Sep-2009 01:36 pm (UTC)
Hee. ♥ Neil.

Man. I used to love watching that show when I was sick off school in Australia. I managed to see a little bit here when he was on ITV (I think) but, the obsessive love for Art Attack just wasn't there anymore.

I think my favourite big Art Attack was either the one with the Chinese dragon or the one with the NYC skyline.

Don't forget, though, one part water, two parts PVA glue. (Or possibly the other way round)

See, the thing is, I watched it here for a little bit but then didn't, because they were only running the episodes I'd already seen in England? So I haven't seen a lot of awesome stuff.

Also sticky-back plastic. He loved that stuff. :D
20th-Sep-2009 09:23 pm (UTC)
It's bloody good stuff.
20th-Sep-2009 04:14 pm (UTC) - Over here I have one I've already prepared...

I have to blame the sales of sellotape, newspaper, acrylic paint, Fairy Liquid, Toilet paper, sticky back plastic and matchboxes on Blue Peter.

Older Drayce now just feels old.
20th-Sep-2009 09:25 pm (UTC)
Well, yes. But I was never a fan of Blue Peter.

You don't have to feel old, because Blue Peter is still going.
20th-Sep-2009 09:27 pm (UTC)

Thanks for that but I remember when Blue Peter and Vision On were the only game in town. *g*
20th-Sep-2009 09:29 pm (UTC)
I don't even know what Vision On is. How much older than me are you, anyway? (She asked politely, and not at all like a precocious child.)
20th-Sep-2009 09:36 pm (UTC)

Vision on is the origin of Take Hart... if you don't remember that either. *sigh*



I list my on-line age as 33+ as I never expected to live past 33... Younger than your mother. *g*
20th-Sep-2009 09:38 pm (UTC)
Never fear, I loved Take Hart. :p
