How can anyone run a business, even an online business like mine, if they are cursed with a ‘spot’? I eat healthily, work out in the gym, rarely drink any alcohol, don’t smoke or take drugs and have an OCD thing about personal hygiene. So how come I’ve got this ‘spot’. It’s not just any old spot either. As they would say back in Devon where I grew up, it’s a ‘proper job’ spot. Arguably, the mother of all spots.

Worse still, this spot is an attention seeker. If it didn’t want to be the main event, why does it glow in the dark?  I don’t glow in the dark, I’d rather stay in the shadows, out of harm’s way. Why does it sit so proud on my jugular? I don’t attack things as a rule, yet this ‘spot’ deserves to be attacked. The problem is, I think it has masochistic tendencies. It enjoys me beating it up. After every attack, it grows bigger, stronger. What at first was just a glimmer is now a shaft of red light. I worry it will attract moths.

I can’t go outside anymore. I tried walking down town, covering it up with a scarf. It was the only hot day so far this year. Not only did I look an idiot, I also boiled alive on the walk back up the hill. Anyhow, outside is off the menu. I fear white witches will rush up to me and touch the ‘spot’ for good luck, or I’ll meet the girl of my dreams and she’ll see only my ‘spot’ not the real me.  I heard on the news Mount Etna erupted the other day. Well, I can tell you, that’s nothing compared to my ‘spot’. I hate ‘spots’.

Still, here’s a bit of sound art. Another demo piece from the Cosa Nostra album composed using samples.  It’s called, ‘A LOVER’S FUNERAL’. I wish the spot was dead. I won’t be giving it a funeral, that’s for certain. Hope you enjoy;

    The Jurg Spot! The Lord Zoolon spot. That’s why it’s special. I just watched Emma Watson in beauty and the beast. English girls are beautiful, so was Diana , Kate winslet is a fav. Get yourself an English rose!

      From now on, Lady Yasmin, I shall only go out after dark. The werewolves will be my only friends.

      1. yassy says:

        Don’t be silly , Lord Zoolon. You will have an entourage ! Are you kidding me, Good Lord !

      2. zoolonaudio says:

        Suffers of The Plague are already following me in vast numbers.

      3. yassy says:

        Wear a mask to secure your breath and leave as quickly as you can !

        Common sense tells me that the leper colony in ancient Crete would be the best placed for me to go. In the land of multi-spotted people, the one-spotted man will be King, or laughed at for having just the one spot.

      5. yassy says:

        Lol. You are the spotlight , wherever you go. The spotless king has a spot. Omg what am i saying ? Sorry ,mi Lord !

      6. zoolonaudio says:

        So cruel, Lady Yasmin in my hour of need. Maybe not a leper colony, a desert island with no mirrors instead. In the land of no other people, the only person is definitely King – unless that person is a girl, and/or subject to no survivors from other ship wrecks in the future. Nothing is easy when you have a spot.

      7. yassy says:

        Touché !

  2. If the spot gets much bigger, you’ll be the spot on the mother of all spots. Sad to read the spot has put you on house arrest. There must be some magic remedy other than time. Humorous pairing, “The Random ‘Spot” of Zoolon” with “A Lover’s Funeral”. Maybe just a private gathering (shove-off) when the spot finally dies. George, a terrific piece of sound art. ~ Feather & Lightfoot

  3. Just you go write a song about it and it will go away.

      In the Cockney style, ‘The spot turned up on Monday, It was still there on Tuesday to, If it’s still there on Friday night, I’ll blame it voodoo’

      1. Look at that genius. You see? Inspiration everywhere.

  4. Most invigorating soundscape! I empathise, for I, too, have a spot, though it is getting to the point where the spot actually has me…

    1. zoolonaudio says:

      Someone ought to write the book, ‘The Life & Times of a Spot’

      1. I feel a graphic novel coming on…

  5. Okay, um, pardon my Midwestern ignorance–you’re talking about acne, yes? Because good heavens, Sir, I’ve had it for, like, twenty years, and bad enough to take the meds that’s now proven to kill unborn babies (it was a popular medicine at the time). So, I get the annoyance and the pain; I thought for sure it was finally out of my system with motherhood, but it seems that my skin had other ideas.

    1. zoolonaudio says:

      I had acne as a kid, but this was just a single spot. In some ways single spots are worse because they shout out loud, ‘look at me, I’m an amazing spot’. I hate spots.

      1. Oh it’s even better when kids loudly point it out among company or church. “Mommy, what’s that bump on your face? What’s that red thing? Can I press it?”

      2. zoolonaudio says:

        Pressing it was what left me a social leper.

      3. Ah, yes, that too.

      4. zoolonaudio says:

        They make me wear a bell around my neck when having a walk around town now. So unfair.

      5. Heavens, you are an awful case.

    Your Cosa Nostra music makes me think about renting a dvd and watching something like Donnie Brasco :).

  7. Spots come and go. The loner spot has the shortest stay. 🙂
