Tropical Zoo

A cool place I checked out recently was the Tropical Zoo in Syon Park in West London. A lot of tropical creatures get smuggled into the UK from abroad and get intercepted at Heathrow. The tropical zoo rescue these animals which include crocodiles, parrots, snakes, scorpions, spiders, monkeys, lizards, fish and many others!
You can walk around and see all these animals up close and then get the chance to hold some of them at a demo at the end. I stroked a croc and different types of lizards. I was too afraid to hold the scorpion and tarantula but I did get to hold a snake. It actually started to strangle me and have to be taken off me!

When you're walking around you can get really up close to the animals too as roam around a little so it is a real experience. I giant tortoise walked straight past me when I walked in and the sloth in the picture was just hanging around eating a cauliflour and came really close so I was able to get that really cool picture.
I am going to go again as I'm hoping next time I will pluck up the courage to try and hold the spider and scorpion much like Mr One Piece! One Piece xxx

Rob Machado's Melali Premier @ Hurley HQ Costa Mesa 19/11/10

I was super excited to hear that Rob Machado would be playing with his band at the screening of his new surf film Melali at the Hurley HQ in Costa Mesa. I am a huge fan, not only of his surfing but of his humanitarian work too. He does a lot of work with Waves for Water, a company set up by pro surfer Jon Rose, which provides water filtration systems to impoverished communities that have no access to clean drinking water. He is also a very cool guy, and an amazingly talented surfer so I wasn't going to miss this opportunity to see one of my surf idols in the flesh!

The combination of the live music with the movie playing live alongside worked really well. There are some beautiful shots and some sick surfing by Rob himself, Kelly and Dane Reynolds amongst others, and the music heightened the whole viewing experience. There were free tacos beforehand and yummy drinks all evening courtesy of Sambazon, one of Rob's sponsors. Oh and not to mention meeting the man yes I had a good time!

Here are a selection of photos from the event for your viewing. Enjoy!

Bug Salad!

I love living in London. There are so many fun places to go and to eat! I recently rounded off the late night Jack the Ripper tour of Whitechapel with a meal at Archipelago Restaurant in West London.

Archepelago specialise in exotic dining and they certainly mean it. The menu includes crocodile, kangaroo, zebra, scorpion and many other fantastic and unusual dishes! It was a great experience to try something different.

For my starter I ate crocodile. It tasted like chicken but had the texture of fish. It was delicious and I would highly recommend it! Just don’t think about it being a crocodile! For my main I had a wilderbeast curry. That too was out of this world! It reminded me of lamb or game and didn’t seem too hardcore really as it was kind of similar to stuff we have here. It was cool to say I gave it a try though! My side salad of locusts and crickets marinated in chilli and garlic was the most daring I got! Though, I drew the line at chocolate covered scorpions for desert.

However the atmosphere, setting and delicious delicacies have made me want to go back soon. I tried Mr One Piece’s zebra main and think I may order that next time... possibly with scorpion for desert!

Check out their website at

Also, if you haven’t been on the Jack the Ripper tour that is worth looking into especially if you love history and a bit of a fright! My tour was conducted by a Beefeater from the Tower of London so he was full of stories, facts and jokes too!

Check out their website at:

The photo of my salad was taken by my very good friend Rene Ehrhardt. Check out his photos at and

Much love,

Patti McGee first lady in skate

“Skateboardings rich culture has been built around iconic heroes that have helped to take skateboarding to another level of progression, inspiration and fun,” said John Bernards IASC executive director. “IASC recognizes the importance of honoring the pros that made skateboarding what it is today- without those icons and legends the tricks skateboarders are doing today would not exist. This year’s inductees represent the best, most progressive skateboarding from 1960 to 2010 and we congratulate each of them on their accomplishments.”

Patti was the world first Women's skateboard champion back in 1965 (below) which happens to be the year the first ever skate boarding film "Skater Dater" is released and the year before VANS founders Jim and Paul Van Doren build a shoe factory in Anaheim- back in the days when stunts like this handstand were popular in skate comps.

45 years on later she gets inducted to the International Association of Skateboard Companies (IASC) and Skatelab Skateboarding Hall Of Fame. She's the first lady to make the list.
Hopefully it wont be long before we see more names cropping into there from the girls camp.
Like Peggy Oki, Vanessa Torres (first female to appear in a skate video game), Jessie van Roechoudt (from Getting nowhere faster) or even last years 540 mctwist wonder kid Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins.

Cher Lloyd gets a make under

Cher Lloyd is out and about to get a make under!
Check out our printed tees , scarves and trousers from our limited edition range (as seen in star magazine and grazia!)

Cheryl Cole has been bleating on about Cher Lloyd – pictured arriving at rehearsals in London this afternoon – and she reckons viewers will be stunned when her protégée gets a make-under and performs a ballad on the show.

She said, “She’s going to be one of those acts where you suddenly go, ‘Wow!’ When we do a ballad you’ll see how much of a great singer she is” - No pressure there then.

Chezza continued, “She can really, really sing. She just has it. We’ll strip off her make-up and just make her a pretty girl with a fresh face and no snarling.”

So lets get this straight, Cheryl’s basically saying Cher is an ugly, dirty faced, snarler? That’s not very nice is it?!

P Rock, Subba Cultcha and Brussels!

Hey! Hope you have a great Halloween whatever you are up to. If you are stuck for something to do, What Ever Happend to P-Rock? are putting on a free Halloween party at Catch Bar. They'll be bands including Callum Read and the Books, The Famous Class and The Rocco Lampones; plus the P-Rock DJs playing the usual mix of punk, ska and hardcore. I will not be spinning at this one but I thought I better tell you all about it as it looks to be a great night. Also, P-Rock will be putting on a night Upstairs at The Garage the day before. Bands include New Jersey Pop Punkers I Call Fives, Maycomb and Mexico Fallz.

Tickets for the show will be £5, and along with entry to the show, this ticket will also gain you entry to the club night after, which will be going on till 2am.

Tickets £5 adv available from:
£6 on the door, £4 after bands.

Expect top hear at both event the likes of Rancid, NOFX, Sublime, The Descendants, New Found Glory, Reel Big Fish, Glassjaw, The Distillers, Transplants, Save Ferris, At The Drive In, Farse, A.F.I, The Starting Line, Less Than Jake, Finch, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Saves The Day, The Misfits and The Dead Kennedy’s.

The reason I will not be in attendance over the weekend is because I am heading to Brussels for a weekend of beer sampling, chocolate and mussels!!! I am secretly wishing I'll bump into The Muscles from Brussels but that is probably highly unlikely. Still, a girl can dream!

Finally, please do check out When I'm not spinning around London and doing my day job in TV, I write for this awesome entertainment site.I review everything from DVDs and albums to gigs and festivals. I also interview the odd band on it too. There's great competitions and news on the site as well.
