MS Update – Keeping on track


Talking to myself in the 3D spectre
No time to pass the buck to the blistered Mister
There’s a slight on the sight of the stock machine
Copied… pasted… remains unseen.

A beneficial lesson learned by way of scripture
Take away the ethics and paint me a picture
What does it say about you?
When you’re on the run and awaiting different views.

I had my first MRI scan of the new year this morning. The technicians pointed out a new lesion right after we were finished. Only one, and as they tell me, it may take another month before the Boswellia pills start taking a shrinking effect on the lesion activity. One thing is for sure – the early mornings don’t really get any easier! As I write this I feel pretty tired but positive about how it’s all going. One month at a time…

We’ve also taken the (pretty extreme!) step of having a dry (no alcohol) January. This might well have something to do with energy levels and concentration levels improving…but, who knows!

Apart from that I’m staying busy with writing (both for cash and er, not for cash) and drawing. I’m also very excited by a musical project that will soon see the light of day. Based around the soundscapes of my musical genius collaborator and my words and vocals, the first EP will be around in the ether pretty soon!

Peace out/Ciao/Tschüssie!

Party Problem

There’s a problem with the party

There’s a problem with the crowd

They’re plugging up the washboard

And drowning out the sound

They’re looking through the mirror

And finding nothing there

No one begs to differ

‘Cos no one really cares

There’s a problem with the party

There’s a problem with this crowd

They wanted something different

But couldn’t turn it round

They’re smashing up the scenery

And speaking doubletalk

They’re looking to the next one

And drawing lines in chalk

There’s a problem with the party

There’s a problem with this crowd

No memory brings repeats

And plays it super-loud

They’re gesturing to demons

And getting into debt

They’re mixing up their poisons

And feeling twice the threat

There’s a problem with the party

And there’s a problem with this crowd

Insidious: Chapter 2 out on DVD now


My review of the disappointing Insidious 2 is over at Flickering Myth now. And there’s going to be a number 3 … oh cod.

Technicolor resolution


Up, up and around the quagmire

We can see what lies beyond

Come and be gone from what went on before

It is not yet time to retire

Technicolor from here on in
The beauty of a sharp pen
We can caress the future memories
And leave behind gin and chagrin…
