SMILE WITH THE SUN

  Despite accidentally killing my special pocket compass (as mentioned in my last post), I still might get to The North Pole as I’ve now got the compass app on my iPhone.  Having said that the phone will probably need a charge every 100 meters or so if it runs true to current form and

THE BEST RESULT YOU GET IS A DRAW

(The floodlights know everything and rarely tell lies) Here’s the basic lyric for a new acoustic number; THE BEST RESULT YOU GET IS A DRAW She dances while they quarrel Over all the things he said “I’m leaving you tomorrow” He answers, “You go right ahead”   He wonders just what he’s done wrong She’s

PUTTING A SIMPLE VERSE TO SONG

First a quick view of the evolution of my ‘Dream Rescuer’ album’s cover art. I forgot I still had these sample shots. Above, one of the source photos; below the final cover. Anyhow, to the point. If you take the acoustic route, then verse words transfer reasonably easily into song, especially so the ballad.  The

OBSESSION’S NOT A PERFUME

 It’s a logical conclusion No time for turning back Obsession’s shut the door on you That’s a thing they call payback   Obsession’s not a perfume It’s just a self-centred private curse An ever-growing cancer You’re not the cure; you’re not the nurse   You’re in denial about the gathering up Of all the hearts

A PRINCESS WHO MORPHED INTO A FISH

(I typed her name in Google Images and this pic came up. I’m guessing this isn’t the Princess though)  In my last post I mentioned noticing a road sign outside Lidl’s in Folkestone (free parking for 90 minutes) named after St Eanswythe (aka Ēanswīþ or Eanswide).  I guessed she might be the Patron Saint of

ZOOLON’S TAKE ON OPTIMISM

(a photo of me optimistically getting a bit of practice in for when I get to walk the high wire) ‘It ain’t over till the fat lady sings’ is (according to Wiki) ‘a colloquialism which is often used as a proverb. It means that one should not presume to know the outcome of an event

ZOOLON’S ASTONISHING WORLD OF LAMPPOSTS

Before I get onto the subject of specific lampposts please note the words in the following verse make no mention of lampposts. Shakespeare rarely mentioned lampposts in his plays or sonnets.  Zoolon’s modern day take on ‘Romeo & Juliet’ My princess read me my horoscope, on the face of it, it sounded good Her old

ZOOLON’S SCANDINAVIAN ‘NOIR’

HIDDEN Flesh & bone under water Soul flying away Which will be reborn? No one can say Is she in the dark river Or lost to the sea? Only the ghost knows The ghost that is she Staying with the ‘dark’ theme, here’s a new piece of music I’ve composed, aimed at the Scandinavian ‘Noir’

ZOOLON’S NEW SHIRT

The faithful Strat needed new strings, so I went to the city to buy some. I was on my way back to the car when I saw the ‘20% OFF’ sign in the window of the French Connection store. They sell OK shirts so I bought one. After I’d paid for it the girl at

ZOOLON, JACQUES BREL & THE ODD THINGS

There’s a beautiful little village (the local’s call a ‘city’) in The Ardennes called Monthermé. Above is a photo that gives an idea of just how decent the place looks. Generally, I prefer places you can get lost in. It’s pretty much impossible to get lost in Monthermé, yet it has a certain style of
