I'm going to be appearing live in London Village if anyone's interested? I'll be the one with the unusually shaped guitar...

Hello. I have not forgotten about this blog, but I seem to be spending more time and energy writing here and here at the moment.

"The scenes here are quiet and quite disturbing, both simultaneously and at the same time..." The War on Terry.

The year has flown by. It's been mental, but it's been so much fun. I have done more laughing, more crying, more puking and more ranting this year than I have in a very, very long time. Forget anything negative you've been TOLD about turning 30. It's been wonderful.

"A collection of rat brain cells has flown a virtual F-22 fighter jet from a Petri dish." unknowncountry.

Every day I am someone new. You see, I have nothing to call my own. Even my voice is not my own. I am only things I have assembled from encounters with other people, people whom I aspire to, people I feel I should aspire to, people I want to approve of me.

The CrackerDog film is finished. It's taken almost four years but it's done.

And The Mekano Set gets bigger and funnier on a daily basis. Check out the Ridder pics they are particularly ridiculous and yet really sweet and cool. I just know that the music is going to be perceived as some sort of ironic electro snobfest but it really has always been about people getting together, getting too drunk, and learning how to use voices, guitars and drum machines to "find some therapy".

Thursday, October 14, 2004 reports that "A new study shows that people with attractive voices are more sexually adventurous. When researchers asked 149 men and women to rate the attractiveness of recorded voices, they found the most appealing voices belonged to people who'd had sex at an earlier age and had more sexual partners."

Personally I think that the research is flawed, because my speaking voice is about as appealing as washing your face with a cheese-grater. And I discovered sex when I was about twelve or something, and discovered so much of it in my early twentie's that by the time I turned thirty I just wanted to stay at home and look at the postcards.

Rollo Kim. I'm a funny guy. No, really.

So I've been keeping busy in my own small way, discovering the unexpected horrors of creating DVD's [that inexplicably appear to be of lower quality than VCDs / VHS - and I'm sure it's just me...], having finally completed the 'short film' I've been working on for the past three years with me old northern chums Al and Jo [links soon cause I think I'm going to post .mp3's of the whole thing and .mpg's of a couple of scenes. It's very arty. There's a couple of scenes that make me think of those early 4AD record covers. Man... if only every .mp3 file you had came with its own custom icon...] having fun with making 'pop songs' [our idea of pop being Curve]. Feeling human. Just getting on with life. No complaints - which is maybe why I have nothing to say? Not writing much at all at the moment but spending way too much time on music.

Details soon.

In this year's Big Brother Awards "British Gas was named the Most Invasive Company, after it declared that a privacy act prevented it from helping an elderly couple who were found dead of hypothermia in their home last winter, weeks after their gas service was cut off due to nonpayment of a $255 bill. They said the act prevented them from reporting the situation to social services agencies that could have helped the couple restore their heat."
