A quick 5 Q&A with Andrew Bosman and PLV! :D

This weeks Red Bubbler up for a quick 5 Q&A interogation is Andrew Bosman!
Or more affectionately The Boz!

Now, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting this New South Welshman in January and I can certainly vouch for his fantastic and funloving personality, what a top bloke! :D

Check out some of his beautiful photographic works…

Anyway, enough with the back slapping and on with the business!!

PLV – Name five people who have had an influence on your life (whether it be personal or artistic) and why?

1. My parents. Mum and dad worked very hard to provide us with the best life they could when they migrated from Holland in the 1950s. They may not be perfect, but they did pretty bloody well I reckon. There’s one rule that sticks out…. finish what you start
2. My wife Michelle. Anyone who can put up with me for 20 years deserves a medal. She has softened me from the angry young man I once was and made me realise the importance of family.
3. My high school Geography teacher, John Jenkins, who apart from being a bloody good bloke taught us how precious this fragile planet we call Earth really is.
Geography was my best subject in the HSC…… 95%…… what does that say about respecting your teacher.
4. Peter Garret (lead singer of Midnight Oil and current Environment Minister). I was and still am a massive Oils fan. When I was at high school in the 80s he was like a God, pumping out his anti nuclear message and just belting out some great tunes!
5. Ken Duncan. His landscape panographs are just incredible. Love or hate his unashamed commercialism, the guy can take a bloody shit hot photo!

PLV – Name five people you would like to have over for a dinner party and why… and also what you would cook for them?

1. Steve Waugh. I am a HUGE cricket fan and this bloke has real mongrel in him. While not as pretty a batsman as his brother Mark he got the job done more often than not. Who else could have told Herschel Gibbs he had just dropped the World Cup……
2. George W Bush. I need to get the bastard close enough so I can put a bullet in his brain. In my opinion he is the most inarticulate moron walking the face of the earth. Says a lot for the mighty USA if he is their leader.
3. Dave Grohl. Huge Foo Fighters fan and Dave Grohl just seems like a great bloke and I’d love to meet him.
4. Benazir Bhutto. What an amazing woman. Anyone who has the courage to stand up for what they believe in knowing full well they are more than likely going to die because of it is a true hero in my eyes.
5. Heinz Ringhoff. Heinz played soccer for Australia in the 1950s and 60s. He was a great bloke and my next door neighbour. When Australia qualified for the last world cup, he and I hugged each other and cried like babies in his loungeroom. He died on my birthday in 2006 and I still miss him like crazy.
I’m not much of a cook but I do a pretty reasonable green curry.

PLV – Name five songs that changed your world… (if not songs then bands or singers)?

1. Midnight Oil – 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 was the first album I bought. I still have it on vinyl
2. U2 – Pride (in the name of love) would be my favourite U2 song
3. Foo Fighters
4. Coldplay
5. Crowded House

PLV – Describe yourself in five words…

Competitive, selfish, determined, confident (sometimes bordering on cocky!), funny

PLV – List 5 things about you that we would have never guessed!!

I sucked my thumb until I was 11
My ring fingers are considerably longer than my index fingers
I have a purple mobile phone
My wife and I have the same shoe size….. I have very small feet even though I am 6 foot tall
I can go crossed eyed and then move either eye from side to side
