Christmas Tree Entry: Paul Deakin

By johnboy - 8 December 2006 24

Paul Deakin is studying at the University of Southampton (the south coast on England), but he’s sent in his amazing tree for consideration in our Christmas Tree competition, and this being the season of good will to all who are we to say no?

This is the christmas tree I have made from 1050 beer bottles, it also has a bubble lamp in the centre.

Hope you like it.

Entries should be sent to trees@the-riotact.com before 8pm, 20-Dec-06.

What’s Your opinion?

Well we might well categorise, certainly a strong entry.

Drinking the 1050 beers would have been fun as well.

“Where are you going?”

“Just popping round to help Paul with his Christmas tree”

Also he can keep adding to it year on year!

Not that long ago I got back from a trip overseas, particularly indulging in the superb beers of Japan.

Che picked me up at the airport to go to a party somewhere out past Gundagai and handed me a beer from the esky once we’d cleared city limits.

Without looking or thinking I took a swig and immediately spat the Tooheys across the windscreen in an involuntary reflex.

Just saying that Toohey’s isn’t a great choice to give the international beer drinker (unless they’re american in which case they’ll be gratefull).

It’s all about taking part. As I said, we might need to have a Canberra category depending on what other entries we get.

I know what you mean, JB – I had the same experience with VB after coming back from Germany.

Give that man a James Squires?

Impressive.

Tooheys gives me a filthy migraine. Nasty stuff. So I stick with VB.

Well, as first prize has gone my only hope remains with the Canberra entrant contest.

Toastie, a gum tree will suffice – good creative line of thought.

I love the decorated Wattle alongside the parkway, at the foot of Dairy Farmers Hill.

There’s a Xmas tree on top of a security fence where on the old Rex carpark site which is currently being excavated.

Looks kind of cool, in a minimalist sort of way.
