MR Jones Project

I just thought I'd let you all know about a new fresh talent that is emerging as potentially very big here in the UK, and making the rounds in the US, and who is from my neck of the woods, a male vocal artist, to be exact.

Now, I don't know Glen Jones personally, but I do know his brother (worse luck). Sorry Gen (a nick-name of his own choosing, btw), only joking. :D Though more interestingly I have met their mother on more than one or three occasions. Hmmm, nice piece of work that is too. There's nothing between us, btw, and I'm not joking this time.

If your taste in music includes the likes of jamiroquai, or maybe Lemar and or Craig David, then go check out this young fresh talented dude...

It Still Hurts

Sputnik in my hair
Lost in some twilight zone
You stand up-over everywhere
A dish, a satellite for our home

Paradise within you blossoms
A garden filled with passion
Rising above all mental flotsam
Intelligence, in which you splash on

Then, dropped a bomb
Mostly by some design
But all your fans have not gone
We await, in hope, for some sign

Sikozu on my mind
What more secrets did you hold?
We may never learn more of your kind
Unless some other media were to unfold

Fuck Work Before Work Fucks You!

I once saw this piece of graffiti displayed in tall white scrawled lettering, high up on a wall in Shakespeare Road, in South London. I've either driven or cycled down that road more than a dozen times since, but I've never thought to look for those words again.

This was the type of written graffiti displayed way before those books of collected graffiti became so popular. I can't remember now, but I'm pretty sure I bought at least two such books. I even started to write my own witty one-liners too.

For some reason, though, those words have both amused me and horrified me equally. I am amused, or had been amused because I've always been a hard grafter, and it just amused me how some people would think that work is bad for you. And yet, in the same breath I know how work can work against you, especially if you're doing a rather energetic job and you incur an injury, say.

I'm doing a rather energetic job myself. One which requires my total fitness. I work a 10-hour day, 4-day week. Lucky old me, you might say, but even though we have our '318s' to show us the details of our duties with things like meal breaks, we rarely have the opportunity to follow them to the letter, as we're almost always on our feet for those ten hours, or more.

It's a killer of a job, and this is the first time that my job has really scared me. I can do my job, but only if I can get fitter as I get older, and be able to take all the shit that Royal Mail will be throwing at me.

Maybe I'm exaggerating my predicament, but I've got a strong feeling now that I may not make it to retirement age, which for me is in about 15 years time.

Right now, I'm trying to get myself as fit as possible, so that when I reach a certain age when most people should be doing little or sitting down jobs, I, hopefully will have enough fuckable energy left in me to stave off from being well and truly fucked by work before I can enjoy what's owed to me.

Neighbours from hell

Why is it that our government, here in England are only too happy to pass on the onus of responsibility onto its citizens, without a care of any consequences that might result from their actions?

I'm talking about 'Care in the Community', where a small number of people with anti-social tendencies are allowed to live freely among their normal neighbours.

Now, I'm not going to say anything bad about my normal neighbours, as they, like me, are not perfect. But we are -- up to a point -- still a community, so why the frell are our government so intent on fracturing it?

Why? Because, they, our government doesn't give a shit. They're never going to dump their problems on themselves, so they dump them on us. You're never going to have a situation where there is care in the community among the more affluent sections of our peoples, unless it's some kind of public relations stunt.


A little while ago, I had a slight altercation with one such nut-case. And although, he, my assailant, began the violence, I happily, ended it in violence myself -- on him!

I can't say that I took any pleasure in beating the crap out of him, but I did have a high point when I kicked him in the head. Never done that to anyone before. Never would I have thought to have done it, even to an animal, but I did -- to him.

Of course, fisty cuffs pails in comparison when your assailant pulls out a kitchen knife and decides to give chase to you with it. Now, I'm not a brave man, but I soon became something? Err, let's just say that I was up for it...

A little while later, he was taken away to be hospitalised, and I was left throughly shaken with anger and stirred with fear. Fear? Why should I be feeling this? Because, he's the neighbour we'll still have to live with in our community.

Space 1999

A Columbia University geophysicist
(Try and say that when you're pissed)
Has released new evidence to test our wits

Are we to be destroyed by some alien nation?
No, but thanks to Nasa and its future Moon-based station
We're only but, a stone's throw away from total annihilation!

Long, long ago in a far off time, or should that be ten years ago
Many had thought that large crater impacts were few to show
But, Abbott's findings now reveals we've been dealt a major blow

Crater counting was all the rage when it was done on dry land
Then Dallas came along (the geophysicist), and said, and..?
70% of the Earth's surface is covered by water, my good man

So, undersea, and under ocean she did find many craters in little time
Now must we make room for resources and of money in which to find
Otherwise our planet could suffer a calamitous and permanent decline

Congress, or is it just Nasa are pouring your money down a vacuum
Hoping that G. Dubya will be fondly remembered (eh?) in history too
That sucks. For if a comet were to strike, all Earth would become a tomb

Twenty thousand of the buggers do now loom, out there in that cold space
Looking for that keyhole chance in which to strike our Earth's blue face
Meteors, asteroids, and comets too threaten man's historic birthplace.

Blog Off!

Have you ever noticed how easy it is to read other people's blogs instead of updating your own blogs?

Well, I'm not really into blogging meself, but I did kind of start ranting and raving about five or six years ago on my own website. I'm not sure when blogging became blogging, as I wasn't aware of it back whenever it became blogging as having its own name.

Of course everybody is into some form of blogging or other. But as you know, either from other bloggers or your selves, it just ain't easy to keep things going.

I don't know about you, but I get lazy, and not just with my blogging escapes of old -- I get lazy with just about everything I do. Maybe I get bored too easily, or maybe I have too many things that I have more than a passing interest in.

But here's something that you can all try. Like me, you may be members of more than a few forums, and are kind of blogging in more ways than you thought.

How about you and your friends simply post your blog names and group them in one place on your own forums. These will turn out to be your own little favourite hidaways or blogs, and in that way you'll have easy access to them.

It might also be an idea to post a title of your latest blog and also a small description. That in itself may either add to the forum's popularity, and or, help you to blog a little more often, maybe?

I suppose the only downside that I can see is that your fellow forum friends might get to read a side of you that they might not like. But hey, we're all human after all. Well, most of are (from-time-to-time), anyhow.

Not only will this help you to regularly visit your group of friends' blogs, but it may even re-ignite that old blogging flame in you.

Incidentally, this is an idea I've applied (or, rather the idea of) to a forum that I seem to be quite nuts about. Ok, so what if there are only a handful of us peeps posting stuff about books, and, err, more books. :D

So, if anyone (or two of you) want to have a peek... It is here...
