Much around me is rubbish. We can immediately rule out the excreant wave that defines my neighbours. My family are not rubbish. More to come.

Dark Days

I'm hearing voices but I'm drowning them out
With the music of water landing in whisky
I have no problems I've sourced them all out
To the horror film clown serving the whisky
Fire in my belly is forcing me out
Such company I make so long as I'm drinking
God only knows if I'll ever get out
At least I don't care so long as I'm drinking

Mr C G Welsh part I

This guy cannot be trusted. Amongst decent folk he is a vibrant liability, espousing honesty like a welcome commodity. By oceans, I've had to rebuke him for spraying the urine of truth on many an inhibited situation. Secretly I have always enjoyed his bubble-popping, though I don't always agree with him, I admire his style.

Music I

All the thoughts I've had have been encapsulated in music. And those of every mammal, insect, arachnid, etc. ever who lived. If it appears that you have experienced a moment not told in musical form it is only because that tune has not yet been formed, though it exists in that plane. Or you, more likely, haven't found the right music yet.

Crazy Mama by JJ Cale

The title and the sound is enough. Just sit back and listen.

So it happens

The brown man talks his talk and the grateful public weep in acceptance. How many times have we seen this before? He may be browner but bugger-all else is different. Or perhaps I should change my yes hope can.

I Couldn't Love You More by John Martyn

This song is the ultimate 3 minutes of perfection. Put to one side the guitar playing, which is simple joy in itself, you will hear a passionate and beautiful ode to love. If you have ever felt love for a human, platonic or romantic, this song talks to you in a serious way. The deep, raw emotion pouring out from Martyn is life-affirming and heartbreaking. I tip my hat to his power and envy his ability to write an amazing song with one riff and an incredible voice.

If I kissed the sun right out of the sky for you....
