Living with Schizophrenia Part 1 from End Of Terror on Vimeo. This is the first part of my mental health story, explaining how I first came into contact with psychiatry in 1997 and the horrors I experienced during my first mental hospital incarceration. I plan to do a series of videos about mental health. More http://endofterror.org This was a video I did a couple of years ago. It was originally posted on my youtube but I had to take it down as it cost me a job. I had gone through the interview process and been appointed by Pharmya ( http://www.pharmya.com/ ), a pharmacovigilance company in the South of France. It would have been an interesting position, combining translation, interpreting, my language skills and also knowledge of medical industry, but the woman boss found this whilst googling and decided that she couldn’t employ me as a result. Anyway, I like the fact that the video is the truth… You can run and hide from your past or you can live with it. My biggest goal in life is not to make money, or to travel, raise a family, fall in love etc… My primary goal is to sleep at night with a clean conscience. I feel that on the whole I manage to do that. Since the making of this video my incurable ‘schizophrenia’ has actually been ‘cured’ and I have a new diagnosis that I haven’t even bothered to research bar a brief scan of wikipedia. I’m now apparently suffering from Schizo-Affective disorder which sort of buggers up the future episodes I plan to do for this series… Enjoy the vid, any comments most welcomed… Hope I don’t lose any more work for putting it out into the ether…
Here is a rare bit of video footage of DJ Wez G in action (back in 2010)… Filmed for the legendary (now defunct) Cardiff radio programme, The Sandwich Show, DJ Wez G lays down some grooves in the company of crazy hosts, Flapsandwich (http://sicknote.tv) and Ninjah… The show’s theme is mental health. ‘Nuthouse’ features a crazy journey to the house of Paul and Al (RIP) where the event took place, after the regular Sandwich Show studio was unavailable… Hannibal the Cannibal masks and mink scarves were the order of the day and Ninjah’s journey to the off license to stock up on beers was a journey itself! I thoroughly enjoyed the evening and long after the broadcast finished we continued to party the night away… I hope you enjoy the video!
[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qgcy-V6YIuI] We love Skeeter here at End Of Terror… Yes the song’s a little dark but when it played once in the end credits to our regular ‘Mad Men’ series addiction we just couldn’t help keep it churning on the EoT jukeboxes… End of The World? Everyone knows an apocalyptic nutbag or two… Let’s hope the End OF Terror is achieved first! More from Skeeter Davis here http://www.last.fm/music/Skeeter%2520Davis
[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qk5n9ww0P4A] What better way to express the way you are feeling than by listening to decent music? No revolution succeeds without being fuelled by the beat of the drum. In the first of the new End Of Terror Vibe series of blog posts, Shpongle bring you here a great performance of this perfect ‘When Shall I Be Free?’ hit filmed in a live performance at one of their seminal London Roundhouse shows. Shpongle are a modern electronic band, out there on a limb, fusing ethnic sounds from across the world with a live-enabled cutting edge electronic base. They are independent thinkers in a music world that is today so devoid of creativity. More Shpongle here – http://www.last.fm/music/Shpongle
I’ve just tested a beta of my iphone app… A couple of minor changes for the developer to make and then it’s all ready to go… It will function on iphone and ipod touch. It should be available for free in the itunes shop early in May – first couple of weeks… I shall post to promote it when it goes live… The app will enable you to hear a selection of Wez G DJ mixes and productions, to view youtube videos, To keep up to date with my twitter and tumblr feeds. There will also be a tab for this news blog and finally a picture gallery. Hopefully people will support this by sharing with their friends and the Wez G fanbase will grow.
