Double Olympic gold for Tunbridge Wells skier
A Tunbridge Wells resident has won two gold medals at the 2013 Special Olympics World Winter Games. Representing Team GB, Jane Andrews is currently taking part in the games in PyeongChang, South Korea.
Jane, 35, has been an alpine skier for more than 20 years and in January 2012 won three gold medals at the Great Britain Nationals in Pila, Italy, in the Slalom, Giant Slalom, and Super Giant Slalom categories.
“Special Olympics means a lot to me,” Jane says. “It has helped me realise my potential for doing Alpine Ski Racing. I never thought when I started out in this sport that I would have such opportunities for training and competition. I’ve seen great improvements in my skiing and I’ve grown in confidence.”
Jane trained for the 2013 World Winter Games at the Bowles Outdoor Pursuits Centre and Bromley Ski Centre, as well as attending regular gym sessions at the fitness centre in St. Johns, Tunbridge Wells.
Jane works at Sainsbury’s in Tunbridge Wells and is an active member at St Matthew’s Church in High Brooms, where she volunteers her time as a Sunday School assistant and serves as a member of the Welcome and Ministry Team which helps lead worship once a month.
“Special Olympics has changed my life immensely,” Jane comments. “I’ve become a more confident skier, I’ve made new friends and I’ve developed my skiing further by training and taking part in competitions here in the UK and abroad.”
More than 100 nations participated in the event in South Korea, with 2,800 athletes with intellectual disabilities taking part.

Sorry, if you've come here searching for filthy naughtiness, you'll be sorely disappointed. It's just a quick mashup, delightfully named "Feeling Prudence's 'Babas'".
Boston - More Than a Feeling Beatles - Dear Prudence The Who - Baba O'Riley
Hope you enjoy!

Well, almost. I took two separate perfomances of the track and synced them. Took a lot longer than you'd think - but I like the effect.

Beatles: Don't Let Me Down
Gladys Knight & The Pips: If I Were Your Woman
A bit of a diversion from my Abbey Road / Motown mash album, this Gladys track was always going to be used somehow, someway, anyway. It didn't fit with any Abbey Road tracks, but then I heard John singing Don't Let Me Down and it just made itself from thereon.

Well a couple of experimental mash ups seem to have evolved into a fully fledged new album - Abbey Road mashed with Motown tracks.
This will be the (almost) last track on the album - and is a mash of The End with Edwin Starr's 25 Miles (plus a few whoops and bleats from Back In The USSR).

Beatles: Come Together
Stevie Wonder: Superstition
As you can probably guess, there's a definite Abbey Road / Tamla Motown theme emerging...

Anyway, here's a couple of my old Jacko mashes. I didn't realise that I'd actually used MJ for quite a few of my mashes. So embedded was he in our psyche, that it might take a while before we appreciate what an impact he had to our lives. He's just always been there.
Anyway - here we go: I Want Pity & You Make Me Feel Lovely.

As you may have gathered, June 1st is upon us and Cracked Pepper is not online.
Patience dear reader. There have been delays (not least due to the uselessness of a certain internet provider) but these tracks will be worth the wait.
Cracked Pepper pisses on Revolved from a great height and I can't wait to get everything online.
Keep an eye out as I will be uploading odds and ends over the coming weeks...

And so this is Christmas, and what have you done...?
Well, I've has a quiet year in mash terms, but in 'real-life' I recently got married to the love of my life and it's inspired me to finish off a couple of projects for next year. Both are B**tl*s related - and both will be full albums...
Until then, have a couple of my Christmas mashes to dip into your cranberry turkey at a wishbone-pulling 320.
