RANDOM QUOTES ZOOLON LIKES

What’s On The Other Side? I like Jean Lee (blog link above) even though she has challenged me to post one inspirational quote each day for the next three days. Thing is, I’m going to have to cheat and post the three quotes in one hit as I’ve got so much work on at the moment

RANDOM THOUGHTS OF ZOOLON – NO.6

  This sign ought to read, ‘Do Not Throw Anything IN the Sea’. Someone throwing things ‘AT’ the sea surely needs help? I felt I had to take a photo although not sure why. Whatever, I found myself sat in the back of a car being talked AT, at a time when I was trying

RANDOM THOUGHTS OF ZOOLON – NO.5

I took this picture of a pointless fence on a beach. It would be no good in a big storm, wouldn’t keep invaders out or people wanting to go swimming in. I wonder why someone put it there? Possibly for the sake of art? Another thing, I remember once I was in the middle of

RANDOM THOUGHTS OF ZOOLON, NO. 4

When people go on at me that I would argue ‘black is white’ I generally tell them that that is unlikely as I’m colour blind, although I did get ‘yellow’ right in one test, but not red and brown or blue and green, or most things thinking about it. I’m told that grey must play

RANDOM THOUGHTS OF ZOOLON, NO. 3

  Most places that call themselves a ‘gallery’ aren’t galleries at all. They’re just shops selling paintings, some of them OK, others rubbish, most with silly big price tags on and piled up one way or another. This shop type gallery I saw in France the other day was alright, even though it was a

RANDOM THOUGHTS OF ZOOLON NO.2

  Some people look like a rabbit in the headlights most times. Others look like the headlights. On balance, I prefer rabbits to headlights. Melania Trump doesn’t look 46. She looks much younger. She also looks to me like she’s thinking in a panic about what to do or say all the time she is

DECIDER (experimental sound art)

But first, Zoolon’s thoughts on wasps and spiders! Wasps set out to terrify best they can I think. Spiders don’t, they just terrify the terrified, they can’t help it. In my studio this morning there was a wasp attacking a window and a spider looking a bit down about life fixed to the wall. It,

BUSKING IN BERLIN (a lyric)

BUSKING IN BERLIN (a lyric) Storm clouds on the horizon, No red sky tonight, The wind blows away the magic, Of a starry, starry night.   Melissa cries for Candy, Candy dreams of John, John is suicidal, On how it all went wrong.   Larry plays the old guitar, Kate the mandolin, And Finn plays

RANDOM THOUGHTS OF ZOOLON

  (photo I took somewhere in Loire Valley, France – near the Troglodytes) RANDOM THOUGHTS OF ZOOLON Subject: Sunglasses I think I’ll wait until dusk before I look at the sky again Although I worry that my sunglasses think they no longer have a purpose What they don’t know is that they are not redundant

ON MARS, I’LL NEVER HAVE TO ASK ‘WHAT ARE WE FIGHTING FOR?’

Another older song is ‘Red Planet’. I wrote this a while back around the time the news was full of stuff on the possibility people going to Mars to settle. Seemed like a good idea to me.  Still does. This is just a simple acoustic demo others seem to like so I got around to
