Bubbler ranx highly in Brockley

Early Morning Bubbles. Hilly Fields. London SE4 from Lionel Stanhope on Vimeo.

Here's Brockley resident Lionel blowing enormous bubbles on Hilly Fields. Not that he needs to explain himself, but he does:

I watched a youtube film of Sterling Johnson (california) making giant bubbles on a beach and thought Id have a go with/for my daughter (nearly 6 now) and got a bit carried away trying to improve the size, colour etc.That was 8 months ago. I am an artist by profession and find making the bubbles very relaxing/calming when I'm on my own and fun when there are children and adults around to watch and pop them!

Its not easy, my recipe has 5 ingredients in it. Wand and solution both home made.Lots of testing and practice to get to this point.

Follow his progress via his Facebook group here.

For those of you interested in the progress of Bubbler Ranx's career (as we were when we came up with the headline), then you might like to know that the one-time Peter Andre collaborator was supposedly working in a Lewisham supermarket in 2004, according to the Digital Spy forums.

I've seen him on me periodic sweaty foray around Hilly Fields (no dogging jokes please)

I thought I was halucinating.

I saw him and his bubbles a couple of weeks ago when I was walking the dog (not dogging)...

Do you think we could have a survey of the number of dogging jokes on BrockleyCentral? I think the % of comments versus dogging jokes would be high. Should a new site be set up to purely siphon off all the dogging references...?Also - bearing in mind the recent survey of facebook, I want proof that Monkeyboy and Headhunter are in fact men. As there seem to be an awful lot of women masquerading as men on here...

Well I've met both of them and they're definitely both men.

So have I - and it's a grey area.

The bubbles are wonderful. It makes my day when I see them. Thank you, Lionel!

Hooray for this kind of thing!

Headhunter said...

Monkeyboy - are you listening? We've been described as a "grey area". Not sure how to take that....

My specialist said it would take a while before the hormones kick in.

Headhunter said...

How long do you estimate before we start calling you Monkeygirl?

With the arrival of the ELL it's ok to be metrosexual.
That and Nick studied at Oxford.

I saw him for the first time last weekend and it was magical! Children of all ages chasing the bubbles down the hill.
