Chat 4 May Bored of being Bored!
  •  We join our guys hanging out as usual on a Friday. Gabriel has been really ill for weeks now and is getting a bit bored of being bored! Being ill sucks and means he hasn't been out of the house for weeks either. Still, there's a PigPen show on the horizon and the worst of it seems to be over-touch wood!
  •  Ben- Hey Gabriel, how you feeling, you getting better?
  •  Gabriel- “Yes.”
  •  Ben- You must be so bored of being ill?
  •  Gabriel- “Yes.”
  •  Ben- And watching daytime TV all the time?
  •  Gabriel- “Yes.”
  •  Ben- Health Insurance adverts, DIY programmes and B-movies, bit boring?
  •  Gabriel- “Yes, No.”
  •  Ben- It must get you down, being ill for so long?
  •  Gabriel- no answer
  •  Ben- Are you feeling depressed G?
  •  Gabriel – “Yes, Yes.”
  •  Ben- What would make your life better right now?
  •  Gabriel- Silence
  •  Ben- Money?
  •  Gabriel- “Yes.”
  •  Ben- More support?
  •  Gabriel- “Yes.”
  •  Ben- More people to support you?
  •  Gabriel- “No, Yes.”
  •  Ben- Money to afford more support?
  •  Gabriel- “Yes.”
  •  Ben- More opportunity to get out of the house?
  •  Gabriel- “Yes.”
  •  Ben- When you get well, we could go to some more gigs?
  •  Gabriel- “Yes, Yes.”
  •  Ben- 2morrows Victory have a gig coming up, we could go to that together?
  •  Gabriel- “Yes.”
  •  Ben- And we have PigPen in a few weeks. Does PigPen give you energy and inspiration?
  •  Gabriel- “Yes.”
  •  Ben- We could take it further and have it on more often and with funding.
  •  Gabriel- “Yes.”
  •  Ben- Anyways mate, get well soon, even though it’s boring at least you’re getting better. You’ve got a lot to offer the world out there, we can’t have you wasting away to daytime TV!
  •  Gabriel- ‘No.”

Chat 27 Apr Crap Week
  •  Another week, another crap week. Yep, it all feels a bit bleak somedays especially when the weather's been crap and you haven't been out the house. It can be a bit much for our man G as he hooks up with long time buddy Ben for their regular Friday hang out. Still, there's a chink of light with the forthcoming PigPen and well, good friends is good friends.
  •  Ben- So G, what you been up to this week? You been up to much?
  •  Gabriel- "No, No."
  •  Ben- Why no? You been stuck indoors this week?
  •  Gabriel- "Yes."
  •  Ben- Well, I suppose it has been pissing it down!
  •  Gabriel- "No."
  •  Ben- That's why I have this blasted cold! How about you? Have you been in good health this week?
  •  Gabriel- "No, Yes."
  •  Ben- Right, well, we're together today- haven't seen you in a while- what would you like to do?
  •  Ben- There's that funky café we went to with Jack and Joel Culpepper a few weeks ago. We could go and hang out there?
  •  Gabriel- "Yes, Yes."
  •  Ben- At least we would get you out of the house!
  •  Gabriel- "Yes."
  •  Ben- Cool.
  •  Gabriel- "Yes, Yes."
  •  Ben- We also have to buy a copy of the Hackney Gazette-
  •  Gabriel- "No."
  •  Ben- 'Cause our pictures are in there due to your award.
  •  Gabriel- "No, No."
  •  Ben- Ah, it's not the Hackney Gazette is it, it's the Hackney Council newsletter.
  •  Ben- Anyway, that's pretty cool that we have our picture in that.
  •  Gabriel- "No."
  •  Ben- Well, maybe that kind of stuff doesn't impress you but we've got to start somewhere.
  •  Gabriel- "Yes."
  •  Ben- We've already been in 'The Times'
  •  Gabriel- "Yes."
  •  Ben- But I'd much rather we were in something more liberal like 'The Guardian' or 'Independent'.
  •  Gabriel- "Yes."
  •  Ben- So we'll take the first part of today easy, then when you're feeling stronger we'll go outside.
  •  Gabriel- "Yes."
  •  Ben- Jack will be here later.
  •  Gabriel- "No, Yes."
  •  Ben- You've spent most of your PA time with Adam this week.
  •  Gabriel- "Yes."
  •  Ben- So what did you guys do this week? Watch some crap TV?
  •  Gabriel- "Yes."
  •  Ben- Listen to music?
  •  Gabriel- "No."
  •  Ben- Just watched TV?
  •  Gabriel- "Yes."
  •  Ben- Did you watch anything good?
  •  Gabriel- "No."
  •  Ben- Ah right, just boring stuff?
  •  Gabriel- "No, No, No, No."
  •  Ben- Are you telling me you want to stop this conversation?
  •  Gabriel- "Yes."
  •  Ben- Alright then, but don't forget, we've got PigPen coming up in the next few weeks so something big to look forward to there.
  •  Gabriel- "Yes, Yes."

Chat 18 Apr Hackney Young Resident of The Year
  •  It's been a while but here we are with another blog instalment. We really do have something to talk about today. Gabriel, one half of famous artist/autist duo Ben and Gabriel has been awarded 'Hackney Young Resident of The Year 2011' for his contributions to the community in Hackney. Unfortunately he was unable to accept the award in person instead he was laid out with a gastric bug (the first thing Hackney gave him this week!) and Ben went on his behalf. So here he is with his reaction to winning, his acceptance speech you could say.
  •  Ben- Gabriel, can you believe you won?
  •  Gabriel- "Yes, No."
  •  Ben- You must be so proud?
  •  Gabriel- "Yes."
  •  Ben- It was wonderful that Jodie nominated you.
  •  Gabriel- "No, Yes."
  •  Ben- Although you weren't at the ceremony, she said such wonderful things about you in a film they made with her.
  •  Gabriel- "Yes."
  •  Ben- All true.
  •  Gabriel- "No, Yes."
  •  Ben- She's been your friend for a long time, even before you and I knew each other. She is an inspiration too!
  •  Gabriel- "Yes."
  •  Ben- Maybe you should nominate her for the award in the future because she's amazing too.
  •  Gabriel- "Yes."
  •  Ben- This award is a great way for people in Hackney to know just what you contribute to the community.
  •  Gabriel- "Yes, Yes."
  •  Ben- PigPen has been going for 4 years now - and it really has brought together great music, great artists and cultivated a pretty unique atmosphere where those who think differently can come together.
  •  Gabriel- "Yes, Yes."
  •  Ben- We should definitely let the National Autistic Society know you won the award too!
  •  Gabriel- "Yes."
  •  Ben- It may help our role as Ambassadors for the National Autistic Society in raising awareness in Hackney about the Autism Strategy?
  •  Gabriel- "Yes, No."
  •  Ben- There isn't a very good autism strategy in place yet in Hackney?
  •  Gabriel- "No, No."
  •  Ben- So, now for the thank you's- Gwyneth Paltrow Oscar style! I'll do the weeping!
  •  Gabriel- "Yes."
  •  Ben- Who do you want to thank? Hackney Homes for awarding you this fine crystal engraved trophy?
  •  Gabriel- "Yes."
  •  Ben- Thank everyone that comes to PigPen?
  •  Gabriel- "Yes."
  •  Ben- The man upstairs?
  •  Gabriel- (no answer)
  •  Ben- Does this award give you continued inspiration towards making a great contribution to society?
  •  Gabriel- "Yes, Yes, No, Yes."
  •  Ben- Through PigPen?
  •  Gabriel- "Yes."
  •  Ben- And through raising awareness about the potential that those with autism have to give?
  •  Gabriel- "Yes."

Chat 2 Mar Bar Prague and chatting rubbish
  •  We join our guys Ben and Gabriel in Bar Prague, Shoreditch...chillin, chattin and cooling out to some funky Fela Kuti beats. Gabriel has his feet up on the table and has nearly kicked over the beers!
  •  Ben- Gabriel, do you just like, do whatever you want?
  •  Gabriel- "Yes, Yes, No."
  •  Ben- I mean here we are in Bar Prague and you've got your feet up on the table, your head on my shoulder, you look like you're pissed!
  •  Gabriel- "Yes, Yes, No."
  •  Ben- Fair enough I suppose but just don't knock over the beers!
  •  I mean it's good to be strong in who you are and do what you want...as long as you're not a dictator or serial killer!
  •  Gabriel- "No."
  •  Ben- Neither of which you are...
  •  Stay tuned for more pointless pub conversations with Ben and Gabriel, artist and autist!
