Turmoil and disruption;
A failure to deliver and define
What some still want.
But what that ‘thing’ is
Remains obscured by spin and smoke.
Switching on the set,
Blurry words come fuzzing out
Declaring in oh-so serieux tones
A state of unquantifiable emergency,
And there’s a No-Way-Out fire in these here states, boyo!
For the love of the people,
For the love of the land,
What is this perverted newsflash?
12 hours ago it made no sense.
12 hours from now just as confused.
I realise I’ve left this blog somewhat lonely for a time. Anyway without further ado (is it ever with further ado? Perhaps there are times when a further ado is precisely what is required…) here is an update of my various activities.
I have been writing more over the last year or so. More poetry/lyrics/songs etc. Some of this output has found its way into the lyrics and vocal recordings as part of my work with the electronic collaborations Echo Rescue and Points of Convergence. More material to come from both projects, including video work as soon as I work out how to use my iPhone properly…
Apart from that I am writing short stories.
I have also been trying my hand at some extra (extra as in background extra for film and TV, not just additional) work. As a way to earn a little extra cash and explore parts of Sydney I wouldn’t normally visit, being part of a ‘background’ cast is good fun. I have done a few small/student works to try out a bit of actual acting as well, and hope to do some more.
So, that’s what I’ve been doing. Back to work.
