Knowledge pursues me but I am faster.......

If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, then baffle them with bullshit.......

.......One day, we will look back on this, laugh nervously, and change the subject…

Only in our dreams are we free. The rest of the time we need wages.

No: 42. I hear that in the Midlands .....

(viewed 1553 times)
I hear that in the Midlands
There'll be a Moblog meet,
Pints of beer and chocolate cake
That sure will be a treat.

Sir Findo Gask and Borris
Will provide a little class,
Just as long as little Borris
Keeps his nose out of your glass ..

Sir Findo, you can be sure,
Is not a high class snob,
He will gladly join you all
For a pint of Fox's Nob...

Doctor Moody and Nurse Booty
Will provide medicinal care,
Holding back your flowing locks,
Keeping puke out of your hair ....

Oh, and FF, please note, Fox's Nob is a Birmingham beer ...

Rubbish and Nasty .... yep, them's my pics ...

Pics from the weekend before last (just got round to downloading them ....

1 - 4 Rubbish and Nasty ... a shop in New Cross that more than lives up to it's name .... it is always closed when I go by, so pics taken through the window .... I have chosen the best of the window display ....

5. Greenwich Market .... a nice array of cowboy hats for Sprocket .... (a nearly Birthday pressie, but good taste won out in the end) ....

6. A hairstylist (I think that is what they are called these days .... I have never actually used one, preferring, the mirror, an elastic band and a pair of kitchen scissors) .... this was also in Greenwich Market .... one chair, lots of superheros, the occassional Barbie and a buddha in the corner ... oh yes and lots of very bright, very pink paint .....

No 41. Happy Birthday Sprocket ..... 40 Today!

(viewed 1186 times)
If you have been following Sprocket's blog you will know that there have been a series of posts leading up to today's celebration ....

Some of us have been counting
And waiting for a while,
We know it's all been worth it,
It sure has made us smile !

We've had clever clues and subtle clues,
I take my hat off to the dude,
We've even had some naughty clues
That have seen him semi nude.

But now we know the reason
For all this machination,
Our Sprocket has had good cause
Because he's due a celebration

So let me wish him all the best,
And please don't think me naughty,
If I reveal to one and all
What I'd do now that he's forty

If I just had a magic wand
I'd conjure up a Kylie
And have them dance a tango
That would leave him very smiley ... :-)

Happy Birthday Sprocket!

Getting there ..... :)

Well, today I went shopping in the East End (20 or so years ago that is where I lived) .... things have changed somewhat ..... I have found that if there is someone with me who is camera aware then even I will take some pics .... sorry to say that mine were very limited .... so only shots of the the first stop off ....after that I was just too taken up with chat etc ....

No. 1 ... loved that cat ....
No.2 .... arriving at Queen's .... it is so over the top kitsch, I love it ....
No.3 .... For Sprocket .... it is sooo Kylie! .....
No.4 .... Fairy Goth Mother's ..... It was just what any middleclass goth needs for weddings, funerals, school proms or everyday wear .....
No.5 ..... A little chubby cherub butler .... oh my, if only I had �£89.99 and a sense of good taste bypass ....

great day out ..... and I am getting there ...... slowly .....

mmmm, the comments on No.4 should go with No.5 and vice versa .... not sure how that happened .... and there is that pound sign symbol thingy again .....

No. 40 I hear there's a hint of mystery ....

I hear there's a hint of mystery
Somewhere in the air,
Just checkout Sprocket's moblog
You'll find some clues right there ....

He is subtle and he is clever,
You will have to spot the theme ....
Of course I could just tell you,
But that would be just mean ....


Yep, yet another naked Sprocket on the blog ....

Edits:
...clicky for Sprocket's blog ... and more gratuitous male nudity .....

No. 39 Some of us just jig along .....

(viewed 1437 times)
Some of us just jig along
And some do point and prance,
But the wonderful Dhamaka,
Well, she can really dance ....

She tangos with the best of them
and even with our Nige ...
(He's such a lovely gentleman,
if asked, he will oblige) ...

So had she been at our last gig,
I'm sure she would have wowed
With a spectacular gancho,
That's bound to hook the crowd ....

In response to Dhamaka's comment that tango dance would not, necessarily, be out of place at last Friday's gig. :-)

Pics from the ELF gig in memory of Alex ...

Dropped into the gig last night .... it was really good .... a vey diverse
crowd as you can see from the pics .....

1. With Tim and Jenny (Alex's parents), the beads I am wearing are a set of Alex's that Jenny gave me to remember him by :)

2. On arrival, stopping to say hello to Jon and Dominic, two lovely lads, Dominic did an awful lot to help Alex when he was ill, nothing was ever too much trouble ...... :)

3,4 and 5. Some crowd piccies ... this was early on, the crowd swelled after the pubs had closed ....

6. Some black leather ....

7. OK so you have a bigger and better camera than me!

8. Some hi jinx (they were only mucking about) ....

9. With Julia (from ELF)

No. 38 Say just what you see ....

(viewed 1091 times)
I thought I'd do a tribute
To a man that I admire,
Illustrator, Simon Drew,
Of whom I never tire.

So if you have a minute,
Or two or maybe three,
Check out my new picture
And say just what you see ....
