Lennon Walls and graffiti expressing solidarity and inspirational messages.
Meanwhile In Sai Kung…
After a bracing walk in a category 8 typhoon (compared to Mangkhut, Wipha was for wimps), I eventually came across the Kung’s Lennon Wall.
Subversive, witty and a bold political statement. It’s got to be Banksy.
“Would you like peas or beans with your fish fingers tonight? Love, Mum x”
“Don’t forget to pick up dog food! Love, The Dog x”
“I’m throwing away a box of old socks. Does anybody want them? Jane (63G)”
Ok, ok, that last one I lifted straight from the Gem Villa WhatsApp group. Apologies to my neighbor at 63G who wrote it. Incidentally, I did take a look at the socks. They were a bit holey, none matched, and they had clearly never been washed, but I took them home anyway as a peace offering for the dog. (Despite his burgeoning talent as a graffiti artist and sprayed reminders all over Sai Kung, I had once again forgotten to pick up dog food.)
Send your pics of the world’s most uninspiring graffiti (f)art by email to: MissAdventureRTHK@gmail.com. Or why not have a crack at it yourself? All you need is a can of spray paint and unflinching optimism that you will not be extradited to the Mainland to face trial for your unspeakable crimes against The Art World.
“Gone to join the revolution! Can you leave my fish fingers in the oven, Mum, and pick up dog food for my babe? Love, Missy x”
Miss Adventure is set to go globetrotting in a 6-part travelogue series for GMI. The Trotssees the aspiring adventurer visit some of the world’s least desirable holiday destinations along with her fake crew in a comedy series constructed around improvisation.
The Mental Ideas Podcast is a weekly podcast in which Miss Adventure’s shady second cousin, twice removed, Sadie Kaye, takes a humorous look at innovative approaches to tackling mental health, performing bold social experiments and discussing the results with an eclectic mix of guests from the worlds of entertainment, film, politics, the arts & charity. The weekly podcast launches on RTHK Radio 3in 2019. Gentleman juggler and showman Mat Ricardo presents a regular slot!
In 2017 Radio Sadie began producing & ‘co-presenting’ (as herself and Miss Adventure) a one-hour comedy podcast, Fake News. The mockumentary sees shambolic presenter Miss Adventure embark on an unlikely adventure in the USA with US President Donald Trump and the t*t he’s referred to as “Mr. Brexit”, Nigel Farage. The podcast will air on ‘Brexit Day’. (Oct 31, 2019? Jan 31, 2020) Stay tuned for previews and clips!
Miss Adventure is a completely made up fictional character. She was born in 2012, when New York indie Summerhill TV produced an improvised skit with rock band Motorhead at Madison Square Garden. The episode aired on Funny or Die, where it (briefly) became FoD’s ‘Highest Rated Video – All Time‘. For the past few years, ‘Miss Adventure’ has shambled her way through regular comedy broadcasts on RTHK Radio 3. Any resemblance to Sadie Kaye is purely in your head, although they did meet once at a riot in Repulse Bay.
