My news

This page is designed to keep you informed of my latest news, events concerning myself, and to present items of interest to those who would like to keep in touch with what I get up to here in Bristol and elsewhere. Consider it as an occasional mini-blog, or an extended in-house version of Twitter.

There’s also a practical side to this page: it is here where I will announce, for example, when I am not available to take sessions, perhaps because I am travelling or simply taking a break, as well as information about my equipment and implements and new items that I may acquire from time to time.

If it’s easier for some of you to follow me on Twitter, I’ve made it simple: just click on the Twitter icon to the right, and go straight to my profile to follow me on Twitter.

But since you’re here, why not take a look at my news below.

All is back to normal at Chez Geo – at least for a month

Sat. 16 Feb. 2019

Pinch HQ Bristol, otherwise known as Chez Geo, returned to normal operations yesterday, Friday 15 February: my Studio and Domestic Room are open for all regulars and my faithfuls. This will remain the case until Friday 15 March when Studio sessions will be suspended while new premises are established; however, domestic sessions will continue during this transition period – that is, they will continue past 15 March – until they, too, transfer to my new premises.

From this time forward I will only be catering for my regular visitors and faithfuls, and I look forward to sessioning with you during 2019.

IMPORTANT: (a) significant dates, (b) no longer accepting newcomers

Tues. 12 Feb. 2019

At last I’m able to provide clarity on important dates: I am recommencing sessions this Friday 15 February and am available as of today to accept appointments beginning on Friday. That’s only three days away, which I know is short notice, but there have been changes happening here at Pinch HQ Bristol.

Briefly, I will be moving premises in the not-too-distant future, and this means...Read more

Now we have Le Chat Noir Pinot Noir

Now we have <i>Le Chat Noir</i> Pinot Noir

“Is this a bottle top?” I hear you ask. Indeed it is, and not just any bottle top, but the top of a bottle of quite a good French Pinot Noir called Le Chat Noir, which I sampled just recently during my travels.

Now, anyone with a knowledge of French musical culture, indeed, of French culture at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries known both as ...Read more

We are now beginning the Year of the Pig

We are now beginning the Year of the Pig

In case you didn’t know, tomorrow, Tuesday 5 February, is the beginning of the Chinese Year of the Pig. And as you can see, as I transit Changi Airport in Singapore, the beginning of the new year is a big thing for our Chinese brethren, just as the new year is a big thing in the Western world...Read more

Being good at multitasking is a prerequisite for what I do

Being good at multitasking is a prerequisite for what I do

One thoughtful faithful hit the nail on the head when he presented me with this rather striking card just before I left on my annual travels: the message regarding the work of a professional dominatrix is accurate, and the card itself is delightful.

Of course, one of tasks the woman in the card illustration is multi-ing is not one I ever consider combining with the tasks I perform in my Studio and Domestic Room (nor is it one I entertain among my faithfuls when they are otherwise engaged in said work spaces here at Pinch HQ Bristol). I’m not talking about the “being fabulous” bit, which is pretty much taken as a given somewhat constantly......Read more

There are snakes... and then there are snakes

There are snakes... and then there are <i>snakes</i>

It was just a day at the beach Down Under. There was nothing unusual, then, when I spied this magnificent specimen of a snake: a few photos were required.

Now, I think a Diamond Python such as the one here would make an impressive addition to my Studio repertoire – I can just imagine the extra edge it would give to play when I have a faithful fixed to my St Andrew’s Cross or locked in one of my cages (and, of course, not blindfolded), when I introduce them to the python. No-one need worry, because apparently these snakes are “typically inoffensive by nature and generally reluctant to bite”. That’s according to...Read more

Glimpses of striking art from a gallery far, far away

Glimpses of striking art from a gallery far, far away

I’ve been busier than usual in my travels this time round, but have still found attending the odd art exhibition to be time well spent, and regular visitors to my News page will be well aware of this. So, from a gallery in a land far, far away, I bring to these pages a glimpse of a group exhibition that presented many artists and pieces of work I found very striking, none more so than the work of Pakistani artist Naiza Khan.

Ms Khan studied fine art in London and Oxford and has since turned out some sculptural pieces, principally in metal, that immediately appealed to me. I expect the pieces I have chosen to highlight here will also appeal to my faithfuls...Read more

This time it’s cat masks in Singapore’s covered markets

It’s 2019 already, so I hope all my faithfuls and regular visitors to my site had a pleasant festive season. I have quite a few News items to catch up on, so the first half-dozen or so will be retrospectives from 2018. Well, that was only a few days ago, after all.

I’m beginning here with photos taken in Singapore: a rather splendid-looking cat mask, and a cat-motif cushion. I can see select faithfuls wearing the mask, and I can see one of my own cats reclining on the cushion. Those who have visited my premises may well be aware...Read more

Don’t get in the way of a charging knight when champagne’s at stake

Don’t get in the way of a charging knight when champagne’s at stake

Behold the striking design on the top of this champagne wire cork holder: a charging knight on horseback, sword drawn. If he’s in a hurry to get to his stock of champagne I wouldn’t want to get in his way; either that, or – judging from the style of the helmet – he’s a Crusader-era knight eager to plunder, in which case I still wouldn’t want to get in his way.

I discovered this cork-holder image when I opened a bottle of...Read more

In celebration of black cats

How travel tends to occupy one. I am travelling, and I am very occupied, but I do intend to keep some News items coming over the next six weeks or so while I’m away. So, after this longest-ever break from my News page it’s time to catch up a little and I’m starting by acknowledging a very thoughtful gift from one of my faithfuls – a gift I would not have anticipated. I appreciate initiative!

Now, a calendar might be thought of as a somewhat mundane item, but not this one, which you can see is Italian. But that’s not all: Le Chat Noir is one of my favourite images. I remember first seeing it in a café-bar in the Jordaan...Read more
