They shot a horse, did they?

They shot a horse, did they?

Yes, a white horse. On 35mm film. And nobody remembers.

27 July 1999: Bite me is launched at the Glasgow Film Theatre, with Wesley Snipe’s Blade. Hundreds turn up in vampire costume. The white horse arrives on Rose Street. A sword-wielding warrior woman from a Viking Re-enactment group sits astride it.

But in a pre-digital era, no tweets, no instagrams, no camera phones, capture the scene.

And so it exists in memory only. Unless I re-launch. Join the digital magazine revolution. Repeat the whole escapade and give the horse the digital immortality it deserves.
