In just over a week I'll be making my way to Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Wight to attend one of the most anticipated festivals on the summer music schedule: Bestival.
There's one thing that really gets my horned goat in this grand scheme of things. REALITY TV! Please, don't get your head turned in an Exorcist style and think it's the way to fame and fortune, kiddies! Believe me. I might be a rock star, all glitter, fake blood, make-up and theatrics (with awesome rock anthems of course) but you've no idea the hard graft and craft that's gone into my career. The problem is with wanting to be a reality TV star, you're only famous for a little while. You can't live on that fame forever.
I've constantly bitched about how unfair this system of movie marketing is, or how unfair the media is as credit really isn't going where credit is due. But until I went to the Aruba International Film Festival, I realised that there's a position that rarely gets any credit at all - they never get to walk the red carpet and yet they are the ones that truly make films magical.
Despite what most people think, my TV career was not based on my stunning good looks. I'm a highly qualified meteorologist - and lately I've been thinking a lot about climate change. It's probably the biggest problem we've ever faced and it's not going away. If we want to live sustainably, we need to take action now, not when it's too late. The problem is, there's not much in the way of action going on. As a proud owner of a Rapanui t-shirt or two, we decided to do something together to make a point about sustainability.
