LETTER IN A BOTTLE

‘Claudette Colbert still from Cecil B. DeMille’s ‘Cleopatra’ movie 85 years ago’ He was thinking to himself that he’d never written a letter. A proper letter, using a pen and paper. A letter he would write, sign and post. He decided he’d have a go although the absence of pre-emptive text was worrying him. His

SEVEN DAYS & THREE DISNEY T-SHIRTS LATER

‘Weird but Harmless’ ‘The more things change, the more they stay the same’ – A French expression On a sunny Saturday the white bloke wearing khaki shorts, a Disney ‘Lion King’ t-shirt and a battered tin hat carrying a rifle shot a pregnant lioness.

THE THREE WISE PEOPLE

Still frame from ‘The Shape of Water’ ‘The drowning shoe’  Listening to the old bloke in front of me in the inevitable post office queue having a bit of a rant I was thinking, ‘that’s not entirely accurate’. What he was saying to the even older bloke in front was, “I’ve heard it all now.”

NO MORE A VENDETTA

This is a track from my concept album ‘Cosa Nostra’. Basically, this album was an exercise in Found Sound (i.e. using sound samples I ‘found’ then captured to create music/sound art). The album was themed around a storyboard I created. A bit like Romeo & Juliet except the families at war are both 20th century

ANTS IN AWKWARD PLACES

An older song I’ve added to the SoundCloud page.  It’s a rehash demo version of a song I wrote when I was 15.  I keep it because it was one of my first ever compositions. One day I’ll rehash the rehash and do it properly. I’ve always liked the line “More to life than the

ZOOLON AND THE LIFE COACH

(above, a near death experience) I had a motivational life coach type person message me on Twitter. He wrote that there is no such thing as a problem because all problems are just challenges. I am presuming he has never lost the pin numbers for his bank cards or forgotten his parachute when jumping out
