First Plain Janes

Ohh my gosh here it is, the first blog for the Plain Janes and this is the first blog post.

Considering that I always find it really hard to think about how to start things (saying hello for the first time tends to really freak me out and sends me rambling on uncontrollably) I reckon a good place to start would be by answering some fairly commonly asked questions.

Question 1.

"Who the hell are the Plain Janes?"

Ahhh I sometimes ask myself this question too.

Basically the Plain Janes are a bunch of people who are into the arts and hook up about once every month or two to do an arts culture night in London.

All sorts of crazy crap happens there, like DJ's play music, artists display their work, people make their own art or read at the book club and there are showcase performances by actors, poets and musicians. If its a good day there will be animation and film short screenings but film makers can be a little difficult sometimes.

The night was inspired by this really cool comic of the same name written by Cecil Castellucci which everyone should read some of us are comic geeks it couldn't be helped.

Question 2

"Are all Plain Janes called Jane? And are they all girls?"

In the comic yes at our night no. Some people go by the name of Lucy or Hannah, we have a few Roses and often their not female either, people tend to be either of the sexes but appreciate things that are creative, so its open to all anyone can come.

Question 3

"Okay so whats with the blog?"

Well we've basically set up a blog to keep people updated about what's been happening with the night and other Plain Jane activities. It's highly likely there will be posts about other art stuff too, anything that may tickle a Plain Janes fancy so keep your eyes peeled for some of that.

Plain Janes love art but do try not to get too snobby with it. Obviously sometimes that's not always possible for some reason we can find big brother and high school musicial kinda repulsive but we try to keep pretentiousness down and self expression high high up!!!!

So make sure you come back and check out whats happening in the world of Jane.

Lots of Love

Plain Janes
