Driver Dave’s Charitable Adventure

13 Mar

Dave Brown is to undertake one of his toughest challenges yet – driving an ambulance to Ghana in aid of AfriKids!

Two emergency vehicles have been donated to the charity, which is responding to the difficult conditions in the Upper East Region of Ghana.  The region is in urgent need of medical equipment and care, with one in nine children dying before their fifth birthday, and only one doctor to every 36,000 people.

They also only have seven working ambulances for a population of over a million – and as a result, Dave is joining a number of volunteers raising money to buy more!  The two donated vehicles will hopefully only be the start of this quest… and you, dear peelers, can help them along the way.

Dave has set up a Just Giving page RIGHT HERE – so if you have any spare cash, perhaps it could go to this noble cause?  You can also donate £5 simply by texting VAFN50 to 70070.

Insulting O’Dowd

13 Mar

The romantic comedy Friends with Kids, which co-stars Chris O’Dowd, saw its American release over the weekend.

The film centres around the trials and tribulations of conceiving a child with a platonic friend, and reunites O’Dowd with his Bridesmaids co-stars and SNL veterans Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph. In this clip, O’Dowd and Rudolph’s characters discuss fertility over pillow arrangements.

If you haven’t caught the trailer for O’Dowd’s newest foray into Hollywood, view it here!

Chris also caught up with US chat show host Craig Ferguson last Friday, 9th March, to plug the film. Watch Chris and Craig’s interview in its entirety:

Friends with Kids was released on 8th March nationwide in America, and will be released on 29th June in the UK.

Good news for all IAMX fans – the band is scheduled to play shows again later this year!

If you have been following IAMX on their Facebook page or through Chris Corner‘s blog, you are fully aware that the 5th IAMX project is underway. While we all patiently wait for brand new music, we can already now make sure we get ourselves a healthy dose IAMX later this year.

The band is scheduled to perform at Siesta Festival in Hässleholm, Sweden on June 3rd. The three-day festival has a line-up featuring IAMX, Death Cab For Cutie and The Hives so why not head down to beautiful Sweden? Go to the official website for more information regarding the Siesta festival.

Fear not – if you cannot make it to Sweden then maybe Russia or Ukraine is a better option for you? IAMX will visit St. Petersburg on 1 November and then head to Moscow on 3 November. Ukrainian fans will have the opportunity to see Corner play live on November 10th when they perform in Kiev.

Keep your eyes peeled for more news regarding live shows and who knows – if you are lucky enough maybe you will get to hear some of the new material during these shows!
