Welcome to “#ArtClubAtHome”

We would like to invite you to participate in our new project #ArtClubAtHome. Our new project shows the way that we are all re-assessing the way we view and treat home. For some, home is the place we currently live, for others it could mean something different: the people we surround ourselves with; a physical building we might have grown up in or currently live in; a town, city, village or country; it could mean the items that make up the everyday; or it could mean something completely different to you! Art Club’s #artclubathome is about re-imagining home, and following the way that home changes, as the current COVID-19 lockdown eases.

We are asking our Art Clubbers who are not able to connect with us on social media and Zoom, or young people that are on our waiting list, to submit their artworks that they have created during lockdown. You can submit your images on this dedicated page. Thereafter, you will receive an e-mail from Art Club asking you to participate in a different art activity surrounding the theme of home, then you can come back to this page and upload your images. Or you can post your images on twitter and tag us with #ArtClubAtHome and @Friction_Arts.

J’s Video and Film Reviews Every week, our special correspondent recommends things to help get you through lockdown

‘Scooby doo’ (SD)

has always been a great show to me – one of the 1st shows I watched and even to this day one of my favourites – the format is so simple but so effective. Ever since it aired in 1969 – its kept a similar format – 4 teenagers and talking dog stumble onto a mystery – that involves a monster and wacky hi-jinks. One of the things that really captivated you as a child was the dark, gothic style and the designs of the monsters they created. I appreciated the darker tones – its one of the reasons I have a darker personality. Over time the darkness and shadows stuck in your mind and the style of the monsters influenced me a lot. I have actually seen quite a few of the series – there are two specifically I’d like to recommend – the original ‘Scooby Doo where are you’… (famous song) .. the 2nd – ‘Scooby Doo mystery incorporated’ – 2010 – it was a more recent interpretation of the show – and it’s the only show I know where there’s an ongoing mystery throughout the 10 episodes – one long mystery and lots of smaller ones. A bigger mystery with darker tones to it, darker tones and sharper edges, and developing the characters a bit more this time around – one of the best interpretations for Scooby Doo. And that’s why I’m recommending it, seeing an old friend brought into a new light. There’s been several movie interpretations recently. They were live action and kind of terrible – however I will recommend certain films that people are calling the best – especially the 1st one, ‘Scooby Doo on Zombie Island’, its been called the best of all SD films released. Age group – depends which SD you watch there are versions for younger and older kids – SD for everyone. Scooby Doo has been around for years and touched the heart of many people – if you look hard enough you’ll find a a version of Scooby Doo that will stick with you for a long time, and probably be around for a lot longer. Grab a scooby snack and enjoy the mystery.

‘Duck Tales’ – a bit of history of the show. Its from `1987 and it was based on a collection of comic books that Disney had released previously It’s about Donald Duck’s uncle Scrooge McDuck and nephews Huey, Dewey and Lewey – it’s one of the best shows I’ve seen, there’s so much in it. The main story is about Scrooge Mc Duck and this nephews going around the world in search of adventures and treasures – basically Scrooge McDuck has the title of the richest man in the world – and to keep his fortune growing he goes around the world looking for lost treasures. The best example of this is the first 5 episodes – they are a big connecting story – start off with Donald Duck going off to join the navy and leaving his 3 nephews with his brother – Scrooge Mc Duck. The show really takes place from here – as the boys try to connect with their uncle he has no interest in them – he pushes them to side and tries to focus on his work – and this is the start of the whole adventure. His famous enemies arevknown as the 3 beagles boys – famous for trying to take all the money from him – they try to get into his ‘money bin’ and follow him around – the boys follow the beagles boys to the money and follow them and set off the alarm to alert their uncle. They don’t get away with the fortune – but with a small wooden boat – Scrooge doesn’t believe his nephews… and after this event he’s more distant from them than ever. Follow ng the clues that the beagels have left – they find out where their hideout is – and they sneak off to try and get the boat back. And at their hideout they find the beagles and a mysterious cloaked strange – with a Spanish accent – the shenanigans of trying to get the ship back and make a break for their uncles candy factory – the whole story is revealed and with more shenanigans the beagles are recaptured. And this is where it leads to the 2nd episode, the next part of the story Scrooge finds out the location of some treasure – and we meet another one of his enemies – ‘ Flint Heart Glomglod’.. which leads to the start of the real adventure. In 2017 – Ducktales got a reboot series – reboots do not have a good history – it was because of this reboot I got interested in Duck Tales and it’s a pretty good successor to the 1987 show – in fact in many ways it does things a bit better than the original show – plus it helps that Scrooge is voiced by the 10th Doctor himself – David Tennant, and it’s not only a faithful successor but a bit superior – more modern – some improvement to the characters and some great stories. Give both incarnations a shot – you won’t be disappointed – one has nostalgia – and the other has more modern ideas. And a bonus facts – the reincarnations has had several appearances – from Disney characters from that time period. Duck Tales is a series that was loved by the 80’s and found new life in the 2010’s.

No matter the generations -Duck Tales will be loved by everyone – whether it be the characters, the adventures, the mystery or that theme song that many have said will never leave them. Age group – I’d say anyone can enjoy it … not too childish, not too adult, a perfect balanced right in the middle. With that, take a look at these mysteries and be prepared to rewrite history
