Xmas Advent Calendar 2019

advent_calendar_430x90Tomorrow is December the 1st.  Despite what all the shops, and some of your friends, might be telling you no Xmas related things should be out until December.  Being a partial bah humbugger myself, I’d leave it until the 20th :-)

Luckily this website doesn’t reflect that.  So, the KM UK Advent Calendar for 2019 opens it first door tomorrow.

As always, the 25 images are themed around a particular subject.  What is it to be this year?

It is starting to get very cold are KM UK’s parts (no sniggering at the back!) so to help us keep warm we have chosen images of Kathryn wearing some form of headgear or hats.

The pictures are from a variety of sources including TV shows, films, public appearances and photoshoots.  The whole gamut.  Not all of them are the cosy woollen hats we could do with right now (southern hemisphere excepted), some are more like decorative flourishes.

Hopefully the mix of photos selected will remind you are Kathryn’s work over the years and cause you to revisit some you’ve not seen in a while.

The Advent Calendar album in the KM UK Gallery is now available.  Use the handy link on the right and the extra banner above, which will be there for the duration of season. Come back daily to see the latest image.

Happy 4th Of July 2019

wallpaper_111_2484x2000_smallbarbieTo Kathryn and all KM UK’s friends in the US, we say Happy 4th of July.

Congratulations to the USA on reaching another 4th of July.  I hear you having a parade this year.  Sounds like lots of fun.  Can’t believe you didn’t think of doing that at some point before in the last 243 years.  Perhaps throw in a firework or two.  But don’t actually throw them, that’s dangerous.  Keep your pets indoors too, they can get scared by all the noise.

The UK is rapidly, and by rapidly I mean mind-numbingly slowly, heading towards it own independence day.  Appropriately enough, we’re trying to make it the 31st of October, aka Halloween.  Wish us luck.  Many of would probably try and stay with you guys instead but we understand conditions are a bit cramped at the moment.

smallbarbie‘s image always forms the centrepiece of our 4th of July post.  It is just one, albeit a particular find example of, fan art created by our viewers especially for this site.  Find it and many, many other in our Fan Art Gallery. If you would like to add an image please contact me.

Xmas Advent Calendar 2018

advent_calendar_430x90It is that time again.  Where has the year gone?

KM UK marks the upcoming ‘holiday’ season with a sort of Advent Calendar, counting down to Xmas day with a series of Kathryn-related images.

Each year we choose a subject to tie all the photographs together.  One of the major annual tasks is to come up with that theme.  Fear not dear readers, we’ve got a good one and it fits very well with a major part of the season:  Gift Giving.

Starting on Saturday (1st Dec) KM UK will open up a ‘window’ of it’s Advent Calendar each day (hopefully) to reveal a picture of Kathryn giving you a gift idea through December until Xmas day.

The Advent Calendar album in the KM UK Gallery is now available (see the handy link on the right).  Come back daily to see the latest image.

Happy 4th Of July 2018

wallpaper_111_2484x2000_smallbarbieHappy 4th of July to Kathryn, her family and all of KM UK’s friends in the US.

They’ll be lots of celebrations going on across the United States Of America today.  To use a quote from The Simpsons:  “Celebrate the independence of your nation by blowing up a small part of it.”

Of course there will be some that right now would prefer things hadn’t gone the way they did 242 years ago.  Though, looking at the leadership this side of the pond might give you pause on that one.  Little bit of politics there.  My name’s RichE.  Goodnight.

Here on KM UK we always celebrate this occasion with the image above.  smallbarbie (thank you) created it especially for this site to include in our Fan Art Gallery.  If you want to contribution an image please contact me.

KM UK Awards 2018

The KM UK Awards like to stay up to date with current trends, reflecting what is going on around us all.  Some would call it it band-wagon jumping for comic effect, opportunist, or just lazy writing.  And those people could be best described as… correct.  It’s just a bit of fun after all.

There have been several high profile political movements this past year, denoted increasingly more regularly these days with a hash tag.  #MeToo for instance was used in reference to women speaking out against abuse and discrimination they’ve suffered for far too long.

Here at KM UK we will certainly not be trivialising such important issues.  Instead we will be going old school and referencing a television phenomenon from the recent-ish past, that is still very much in the news today:  You’re Fired!  (Ironically said by a boss to a candidate going through a prolonged televised job interview and therefore was not in a position to be fired.)  It feels like everyday at the moment someone in a high profile role is getting fired.  Either they’ve done something wrong and getting rid of them is seen as serving a purpose.  Or, they’ve done the right thing and that reflects badly on someone higher up.  It also means we can used the same icon as last year :-)

Welcome to the 2018 KM UK Awards.
