DINING WITH THE TURKS

‘How to Confuse Facebook’ by Zoolon Recently I’ve mentioned a mate of mine who has a habit of messing up. I think he may have surpassed himself on the stupid front this week. He says, “It’s took me five hours to fit a roller blind.” I say, “Five hours? Never.” He says, “I spent two

A SMALL DOG & RUDYARD KIPLING

‘How much? Seriously?’ – Cute dog. No price tag. The other day, a day when shadows were having a rest, I was trying to get a clear head before going back to recording my new stuff, so I took a walk around the next town along the coast from where I live. I can’t claim

THE TIN MAN, SNOWFLAKES & A POEM

‘Chasing the Sun’ by Zoolon I oiled the creaky hinges to the door into the eaves of my attic studio today and for the first time understood why the Tin Man out of The Wizard of Oz had such an addiction to oil. Saturday morning, I woke up to a curtain of snowflakes charging horizontally

GLACIER MINTS & THE HUMAN MICROSCOPE

A photo I took last year called ‘No Parking’ I’m on thin ice with this. I’m only posting it because what happened made me laugh at the time. It concerns my father who also blogs on WP, hence the ‘thin ice’. A while back the old man damaged his left eye. He never got it

THE THIEF FROM THE EAST

I was having a breakfast of hot chocolate & pain aux raisins in the café this morning when I spotted this black bin enjoying a cup of coffee. He didn’t have a lot to say for himself. Odd. A couple of nights back, about 1am I saw from my attic window two little fox cubs

TICK TOCK & MR MOUNTAIN TOP

(classic, official Beatles ‘Back in the USSR’ tie from way back. To eBay or not eBay, that is the question) How can someone be busy and bored at the same time? I quite good at that. Anyway, a stab at a new lyric? Not sure. As I was wondering where words come from, this one took

KALASHNIKOVS & A FORGOTTEN SONG

Odd facts.  Just before I took this photo 11 people exited this caravan. Only one struggled fitting through the door. Recently I’ve mentioned how a mate of mine constantly gets the wrong handle on life. This week he went epic in terms of getting the wrong end of that stick of life. He doesn’t really

CAPTURING WAVES & NUISANCES

So, it’s the first decent day of the year in South East England. Blue skies, a double-figure temperature and high tide at 11am. All good. I’m walking the coastline to a place where the sea wall juts out toward the beach, so I can capture the sounds of the waves for some sound art I’m

CASTAWAY

(a photo of a sequined cushion taken with a microscope attachment for a mobile phone – my excuse is that I was bored senseless at the time I took this) Over what was a good Christmas – even though it mainly comprised of putting the spreadsheet of all spreadsheets in the history of spreadsheets together
