We are on TV today
Beqarsac and I were on TV last night on the Community Channel but sadly didn't see it myself as I have no TV and the friend's to whom I went to watch it only had Freeview and we discovered too late that Freeview only broadcasts for 3 hours a day! So if anyone has manged to record it and convert it in order to give it to me somehow I'd be greatful. It is on again on Thursday 18th (my birthday by the way) at 10.40pm. The program is called Postcards and the Episode called Bearsac. The Community Channel can also be viewed on Sky and Virgin Media and they are 24/7 so it should be on those.
Sadly I no longer have Bearsac. This is why I have not been updating the website - see the entry for 1st March 2012 not far below this.

We are on TV today
In 2008 some budding film makers of the time from Westminster Film School made a documentary about me and Bearsac. You may have already seen it on Youtube. Recently though the Community Channel - a freeview channel on TV wanted to feature it. The original producer Kristian now has his own compnay Splinterfaction TV He negotiated that the documentary be shown in full and your can see it tonight. There has been conflicting info on the time so I am not sure if it is 8pm or 9pm (I think 8pm). It will be repaeted at some stage in April and maybe May. The program is called Postcards and the Episode called Bearsac.
Sadly I no longer have Bearsac. This is why I have not been updating the website - see the entry below.

Bad News from Debra
I have been too upset to report this until now but I regret to tell you that I no longer have Bearsac and I miss him very, very much.
On 3rd December 2011 we were on a train in Tanzania and he was
sntahced from my hands as he waved from the window.
I reported it to the on-board police officer and the Village Chief found out who the man was but he went on the run.
The embassies and press cannot help. Is there someone who knows of a journalist or anyone else that might be able to help.
I have details that can be passed on. There is a video someone made and put on YouTube.
Some details are incorrect but it is very nice of him to make it.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vTsQLK6uj8

Almost forgot I
had a website! I have been taking time out to spend time with
the family and other teddies and although so much has been happening
it seems pointless after all this time to tell you about things.
Debra is thinking of getting a sweing machine so I might soon
be the worst dressed teddy bear on the planet! What am I to
do if the stuff she makeds is as nad as I am assuming it will
It is my 14th birthday
on Friday 26th so I hope to have a few messages from you human
and teddy folk. I overheard Debra saying she was thinking of
giving me a bath for my birthday, so maybe I ought to take my
self off somwplace; I've not been on any travels for a while.
Lots of stuff happening
but no time to update about it. Off to a teddy bears' picnic
later with the wife and
There is a 28th
problem on the problem page.
Life just doesn't
get any more restful for a teddy bear in it's old age. I am
losing my fur all the faster with my life in the fast lane.
Too much time gone and things happening since my last updatw
so will just mention the most recent. Met some more human celebs
outside Embassy for the HD Brow launch party yesterday evening
then gatecrashed two private viewings at art galleries around
the corner. Unfortuantly for 1/2 of Right Said Fred I got there
a little too late. Met some crazy humans anyway - why are art
people and their enthuisasts so crazy? One of the Artists tries
to seduce women by getting them to feel his paintings and goon
to feel not his paintings but something else of his!
Despite all the art and misbehaving Artists the centre of attention
seemed to be Debra's enormous bruise on her thigh which she
obtained by being butted by a cow.

Always seem to
be busy these days and not able to find time to update; such
is the life of a cool bear like me.
My wife, Tea, won
Teddy Mother of Mother's Day at the Mother's Day Teddy Bear
Picric. What she did to win I'm not quite sure, she was rather
too tipsy to tell me when she got home.
Recently I have
attended the Children's Champions at Grosvenor House Hotel 30th
March. There I met Cliff Parisi and Perry Fenwick off Eastenders.
They remembered meeting me and being photographed with me before.
I also met and had the honor of being photographed with the
lovely Barbara Windsor. Two members of Blue - Simon Webbe and
Anthony Costa, Ex presenter Konnie Hug, Kate Piper Model TV
Presenter, Comedians The Chuckle Brothers, Footballer Rio Ferndinand
were also photographed with me. Later outside The Royal Albert
Hall I met and had an almost meets photo with Mikhail Gorbachev
who waved at me from his car.
The following night
was Get Tested at The Jazz Cafe in Camden. Celebs who were photographed
with me were Jeff Leach, Lady Lloyd, Kevin O'Dowd Brother of
Boy George, Singer Jodie Harsh, and Actor Mathew Horne. See
the Meets Celebrities
page for photos.
I have become quite
the clubbing bear of late. Debra has swung me around her head
and I have been snogged and photographed with clubbers at Aura,
Embassy, and some other clue beginning with A in Mayfair. I
can take it but Debra is getting rather too old to hack the
pace and it's on her I rely on typing my dictation of my updates
for the website.
Yesterday we attended
a ceronmy at Bhatividanta Manor for the Hare Krishna cows being
let out into the fields after winter inside the barns. They
were overjoyed in their release, jumping and skipping and everything.
After the cows we planted potatoes with the Hare Krishna devotees.
Hard work but satisfying.
18th March 2011
The last few nights
have been a wee bit busy for me; I've been the real bear about
town. Kensington Roof Gardens was the venue of choice last Friday;
great during the night but the flamingos were in bed so didin't
get to meet them. I boogied on down with the humans though and
met some lovely ladies.
I watched some auditions. Debra is maybe being an extra in a
small film but is also helping the Director/Producer with other
things here and there. This included supporting the audioners
by roll-playing with them. Bit of a laugh watching her make
a twit of herself!
Wednesday we paid
a short visit, before being called away urgently, to The One
Goal Foundation Gala Dinner at Riverband Park Plaza Hotel. Debra
was photographed by a photographer that liked what she was wearing
and you can see a video 'Celebrity Overnight?' on out Aspiebear
YouTube of her being photographed. When she gave her card to
the photographer and he read the book title he said He'd seen
the book at Mencap and was please to meet us!
Thurday had me
stuck in the press pit at Banquetting House in Whitehall (I
stuck my paw up as we passed Downing Sreet). The venue was host
to the Surrealist Ball. Sodding poo that a cool dude teddy like
me didn't get in. I did 'almost' get to meet loads of celebs;
I only had heard of one of them Andrie Arshavin and I didn't
recognise him! Photos in Bearsac

Well now it's Friday
and I won't be going out into London tonight but will go to
a friend of Debra's in BWood, so it will be a realatively quiet
10th March 2011
Have been too busy
to update regularly for ages now, I know it make look a bad
webhost but what is a bear to to when he has so much on his
Last night we met
some lovely ladies at the Television X Awards called Soft and
Hard Adult Film Television Awards or SHAFTAs for short LOL.
The ladies and a couple of men were getting friendly with me
in a way my wife would not approve, so I had to to keep them
under control. We didn't hang around as we had to attend another
event at Direct Cafe Village Underground for A Night At The
Sack Races. It was only upon arrival I found out what it was
and that it was a Comic Relief Rednose charity fundraiser where
people don red noses to patronise people these feel sorry for.
Rights Not Charity but it was a fun night anyway and I met Actress
Gemma Atkinson and some Band called Roll Deep who unknown to
us have been at number 1, so must be reasonably famous.
We didn't take part in the sack races but some of the celebs
we popped into the Drunken Monkey where Debra found a badge
with a rastamouse on it. She pinned it to me as I was once a
Rastabear. Later at Direct Cafe we met Linton and on seeing
the badge told us he had one like that but he'd lost it. We
asked if he'd been in the Drunken Monkey and he had so we gave
it to him as logic would dictate it was his - see the video.
Too full up to
eat at Simpson's even for Chestnut Roulade
2nd March 2011
some of the money she earnt from testing a website for accessilbilty,
Debra treated us both to lunch at Simpson's on The Strand. They
didn't bat an eyelid as she asked for a table for one and cushions
for my teddy bear. Instead they simply brought 3 cushions and
placed me on the chair opposite Debra and put a napkin on me.
We ordered Pan-fried Salmon with Mash and Baked Beets. We were
promply brought a complimentary cuppa-soup! No, we wern't in
some Workmans' caf named Simpson's; and of course this wasn't
the instant powered shit called Cuppa-soup. Served in a small
white coffee cup on a saucer it was Tomato Soup topped with
pesto. Debra did offer me some but I had not long before stuffed
my face with a woman's burger in the street whilst Debra wasn't
looking. Serves me right though as I did have the appetite to
sample the main course or the pudding of Chestnut Roulade and
Stewed Cranberries. Debra has more than happy to eat my share
though and I do tend to make a lot of noise when I eat so maybe
it was just as well.
There was a rather
old Carvery Chef who made the essence of the place with his
slow unsteady walking through the tables and talking to diners.
He is such an accet to the pace as he slows down the world of
the diner to a relaxing pace. Though once he had hold of the
carving trolly he walked at a regular pace as though the trolly
was a zimmer frame!
I know there hvae
been people waiting to see photos of my recent trips to Bratislava,
Vienna and Paris. We have put up photos in the travel centre
but are currently still woring on the page. We are very busy
with other stuff. You can see videos on YouTube and can start
then there will be links to the other videos on our Aspiebear
channel under the uploads section.
Last 3 nights
spent in Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. Did a day-trip
to Vienna in Austria. They are the closest capitals at about
40 miles apart. They were both in the minus temps -5 during
the day at one point in Vienna. Will update the travel centre
next week time permitting - I am a busy teddy bear you know.
on the W of the W Hotel near Leicester Square
I am such a cool
dude teddy bear as I got thrown out of London's coolest new
hotel last night when I gate-crashed The Vogue.com 15th Birthday
bash at W. With a friend with suitcase of camera gear we strolled
in to the party on the first floor even having a porter ask
if we needed help with the luggage (assuming we were staying
at the hotel). We got out at the 1st floor for the party rather
than go to the hotel lobby and were presented with champagne
and raw fish. Rubbish champagne in cheap glasses I should
add. Thefish was good though- bears like raw fish.
Before long our
media friend, who was not on the guestlist, and Debra separetly
got spotted with their camera's. Security was very tight and
I guess the few camera people invited were known to security
so 2 faces didn't fit, or 3 if you count mine!
We were taken
to a backroom and I was body-searched by a misery of a man
who man-handle me all the way holding me without due rspect.
We were then escourted out of the back door andhad to return
for Debra's camera later once they had checked nothing was
on it from the venue. She had only taken it out her bag to
look for her phone when she was swipped on by my manhadler,
or should I say bearhandler.
Hope the party
livened up later as it was rather boring when when we were
there. Think they needed me to make things a bit less dull
but were were only there about 1/2 hour. Still, there will
be other events.
On the way home
we met lots of people, 2 of whom are in my Meets
We also met Georgous
George on the Underground and they gave us a CD of their music.
Not listned to it yet thoughh, so busy. Gorgouse George is
a band gorgeousgeorgetheband.tumblr.com
Last night, 10th
February, I met and almost met a few celebs at the Film Critics
Awards at the BFI on
the Southbank. Some were a little shy: Thomas Turgoose, Manjinder
Virk, David Fincher, Kristin Scott Thomas, Rosamund Pike, Jessica
Barden and Mike Leig. Others however, were more than happy to
be photographed with me: Jason Solomans, Ruth Sheen, Will Poulter,
David Seider, Colin Firth and Cristine Bottomley. The
photo are in the Meets
I will upload
to YouTube a clip of me and Debra singing with a busker Nigel
Thomas on the London Underground http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3POs79137I.

I am lucky to be
here to update the diary rather than being magiced away by Magician
Paul Daniels. I met him last night at the Chortle Awards where
he presented an award for the category of Breakthrough Act to
The Boy With Tape On His Face (Sounds like a piss-take of The
Woman With The Dragon Tattoo to me). Paul Thankfully didn't
fulfill Debra's request to magic me away (I knew she hates me
really and wants rid of me). What Paul did do though was a ventriloquist
act with me but thankfully not on the stage.
At the same awards
I also met (for the 2nd time) Top Gear's James May who was also
presenting an award. James Said 'I've seen him before' and then
he kissed me. When Debra asked if he's read my book (which he
bought in December when Debra bought his) he said he had an
that it is not bad actually when she asked is it really rubbish.
He also said that he's been on my website. One
of the questions when we interviewed him was what he thinks
about the fact people think he has Asperger's Syndrome? He replied
'I'm not entirely sure what it is. Debra briefly explained and
why maybe people think he has it. He doesn't think he has AS
and says that people often think he has OCD (which we think
quite likely even though we saw no signs on meeting him). After
listening to James for about 15 mins in total I really don't
think he has AS - Sorry to all the Aspies out there that like
to think it the case. Thanks James for being patient with that
nutty owner of mine.
Earlier in the
evening we briefly met Emily Watson at the London Evening Standard
British Film Awards and the photo is in the Meets
Celebrities page along with the one of me with Paul Daniels.
Outside the Chortle
Awards we met two young me that interviewed me an Debra on their
phone. Hopefully they will send us a link to it if they put
On the Underground
I had a nice little sing-song with a muscian/songwriter/singer
busker called Nigel Thomas www.facebook.com/nigelsongs
Not sure he quite knew what to make of it really, bet he
had never had a teddy bear come and join him on his performance
Tonight I attended
the G-Star RAW party held at One Mayfair. Built in 1825 it
is a rather groovy venue that looks like it was once a church.
G-Star is a cool denim jean brand and the new campign is fronted
by Actress Gemma Arterton. Lots of people were asking if my
jeans were G-Star; I couldn't disappoint them and say no now
Although I only
got an 'almost meets' photo
of me and Gemma I did get to meet her briefly, she was enthuisastic
to find out who I was but wasn't allowed to be interviewed
so we only exchanged a few words. What a lovely young lady
she is though, it is is shame for her that she was with her
hubby as I'm sure she would have liked to get to know me intimately.
We just missed
Photographer Anton Corbijn; sure he'd loved to have snapped
such a cool dude teddy like me; but maybe just as well as
I was a little boozy as I had so many free boozy tipples.
Just before leaving
I got to meet G-No the G-Star rhino.
G-Star's G-No the rhino having
the honour of meeting me.
Happy New Year
folks. Hope you have seen 2010 out and 2011 in on a joyus
I boogied the
night away with Debra at Kanaola nightclub in the City. I
was lucky to not get set alight by the sparkler fireworks
being twirled all around me. I met some lovely lasses and
got lots of new year kisses and was rather a tipsy teddy after
being given sips or large glugs of many people's drinks. I
even drunk from a giant sea-shell with flowers in it. Debra
had fun too but the less said the better; she always finds
a way to show me up.
we really need to make the most of this year as I think it
the last whole year we have before the world ends sometime
next year but then ther have been many different years given
for that to happen and some have passed us by already. But
just incase next yeaar is the one then ladies if you see me
around before then please come and kiss me and show how you'll
It would be great
if all you humans could make a new years resolution to gives
strangers a smile more often. remember what you give out you
get back so be positive in your thoughts and doings. x x x
