Image 52 - Week 39.. 38th Ryder Cup., Sofia Vergara's wardrobe malfunction., Tropical Storm Miriam., Nick Grimshaw.. and Trench Coats..

.. does John Terry retiring
affect you..?
 and Roy, I wonder if Rio will suddenly be ok now., "for purely footballing reasons".?

I've never seen X-Factor (yeah).. and have no clue who Tulisa is (fortunately).. and really think Noel Gallagher is (allegedly) a clown.., or at best, a short Richard..

I don't feel the need to have to read about Paul McKenna..; who.!, but hey., an airport., a plane seat or foreign currency.. and my heart's beating like a West African rhythm section..

Clean lens' are so much easier to see through.. and what do we do now that Mark and Brian have retired.?.. and why are the hedgerows on the sides of the roads, so high.? 
If you're following this stuff - told ya..; green and brown
Marrakech., Dubai and Facial Pamper Packages.., is where my Groupon's at baby..- No deal.., no need for a deal and not interested..

"Will it go round in circles.."
Does anybody really, truly  think that, the, a UK government, or bunch of politicians are going to miraculously change things around..? It's how it is and how it is, is how it is..; it's purely an instinctive way of life.. and as much as it would be fantastic to see progress and enjoy a forward thinking journey, the simple fact is, there will always be people rolling their trousers up, knotting their hankies and eating fish and chips doused in vinegar, not to mention smoking their roll ups and littering the sidewalk with their early morning cans of Carlsberg., in my rather lame OPINION.. I guess failing to clear the debts overnight and starting the day afresh with a clean list of to do's, means there's going to be junk to always clean up.. and because wiping the slate clean is pretty unlikely to happen, that duh, surely means 'we're' always going to be chasing (?) our tails.., unfortunately.. WOW.., politics and on my shift too..; now that's as unlikely as a conspiracy theory.. or standing in line behind a visiting martian at Tesco's.. I did say, write, use the word 'unlikely'.. I am always open to be proved wrong of course., so bring it on baby.. and bring it on in the droves.. I'm so ok with that.., thank you very much..

Top ten coolest brands in Britain

Aston Martin
BBC's iPlayer
Glastonbury Festival
Virgin Atlantic
Bang & Olufsen

According to the 11th annual CoolBrands poll.., apparently..

I'm fine now.; I've seen three pairs of gloves while out and about today.., which means it's ok to start wearing them.. They'll be in my pockets everyday., or actually on my hands from now, until next ****ing June.!!!

I have a tally finger counter, thingy do bree do, which is as useful as the several little black books I've filled with project information.. and is much a part of me as the soles, phone and camera I leave home with..

I had a beer.., but never know what kind to have., so I looked at the five pumps and simply chose the middle one..; it was fine.. Hmm, choosing the middle one must mean something..; probably something like a dream, eh.. I walked there.., I walked back and saw three foxes who all stood and stared at me..

I think this guy may have got the wrong 'i' line..
I take my vitamins at night., before I turn the lights out.., because I heard once that your body's metabolism slows down (duh., as it does), leaving the vitamins to stay in your system longer..; it kinda made, makes sense to me., so.., that's my story an' I'm sticking with it.. and hey., I never wake up in a bad mood., nor do I need any morning caffeine either..

So I know he got some insider information, but Noah got it right.. I raced down to B&Q to make a start, but the lines were so long at the check out counter with wood and nails taking the biscuit, that I thought., "hmm, eff it".. and with a complete change of plan, decided on Milletts.. 
Hwy 1

A wise decision as it turned out because I was able to inflate the thing post haste and paddle home... No need to worry about the zillions of ridiculous speed cameras lining my route home, when armed with a paddle in my hand .. and hey, I could text too..; no laws about no texting while paddling., right.?

I got tooted at today.. and given the middle finger.. and all because I stayed in my lane on the corner that someone else was trying to cut.. Now, if I was being honest, I'd tell ya if I was in the wrong, but seriously, I wasn't.. I had to look in my mirror to then see her 'texting' while riding my rear.. ; she'll have forgotten all about it by now, whereas I'm still thinking about it.. - Too funny..

"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow Roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars, and in the middle, you see the blue center-light pop, and everybody goes ahh..."
On The Road
Jack Karouac

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms, and, if it proved to be mean, why then to get the whole and genuine meanness of it, and publish its meanness to the world; or if it were sublime, to know it by experience, and be able to give a true account of it in my next excursion."
"Where I Lived, and What I Lived For"
Henry David Thoreau 

Where do you stand with people talking to themselves..? Gordon here, within earshot, is chatting away to himself.; perhaps he thinks I'm a part of his conversation., but to be honest, he's doing fine all on his lonesome.. I'm just not that interested in his bus timetable, or which one he can't catch though..  I am this close however to joining in with him..

The obvious is truly kinda obvious..; it's that obvious., obviously.. Reportage is a fancy word and let it be known.., that.., I just completed another project..; currently, three to go..

Searching for his lotto numbers.., but there again., aren't we all..

"Up to a million people will take part in a synchronised toilet flush in an attempt to unblock sewers in Zimbabwe."

"A man has been charged with blasphemy in Greece for lampooning a monk on Facebook."

.. and Natalie Portman goes blond..!

That's got to wind up this week's effort.., but before sharing with you David Spade's latest..; he's recovering after undergoing surgery for a double hernia..!

This is all newsworthy stuff
.. apparently..
to someone
and with that

39 eh.!
I'm out

I've got my eye on you

Smokestack Lightening
Howlin' Wolf
Nicholas Brothers
Stormy Weather 

an' now I'm awake

Thanks this week go/goes to Philip Standefer - Michael Crowe - Whitney Kropp - Ogemaw - Thoreau - Karouac - Liam Neeson and the bizarre 'bagel head' look..

Image 52 - Week 38.. #The Endeavour., #Gangnam style., PSY and

.., is it absolutely necessary..
and how is it gotten away with..?

It's over 20 years since.., something..; infact it's over 20 years since, for a lot of things.. and who knows where it's at..?

Found it., thanks
I'm apparently due for an upgrade soon., the new goggles are working out... and it's Super duper thingy today..

78 caps but no tears for John Terry

I picked up a couple of pairs of those extra warm, fast wicking, underfoot cushioning, comfort fit socks in readiness for the seductively long winter ahead..; trouble is, I can't fit them both on at the same time while wearing my shoes.. and damn it., I may have to simply give them away already to the next homeless person I see; they'll need them more than I will.!

It's a tough day
I wonder what homeless people do on days like this.., where do they go.;  I assume to somewhere as dry as poss' and simply 'sit'..? and I was just thinking to heck with the shower and making an effort today..

Yep., that leaf definitely turned brown before my very eyes..; I'm sure of it.  Sirens going., wind blowing, rain hammering the window, wet roof tiles, heavy grey sky., puddles full of dancing dots.. and sounds of a day alone.. - What are you doing..?

How about the t-shirts, baseball caps and sweatshirts/hoodies with Venice Beach, Surf City, CA., UCL., Manhattan Beach., Hollister., San Diego..? I see them almost everyday here.., but., but I don't see ones with Coventry., Highgate., Boscombe., Grimsby., or Crewe being worn with pride..; jus' PCH, Malibu., UCI..! Where are all the ones with Sheffield., Luton Grammar School.., East Ham, Bournemouth Gardens or Milford-On-Sea .? Hmm., not quite as romantic eh..; jus' a wet day's thought..
An Evening at the Pavilion., not
 The baseball caps with US logos on 'em kinda fit better than  Rochdale's coat of arms.., or Gosport's proud and stunning logo.., or the National Bus Service's motto.. How about one for Sunrise Homes.., or Puddletown., no..? Hmm..

Après moi, le déluge

There's going to be copious amounts of tea drank today., no doubt., but not by me; more socks worn, newspapers read and huge savings on hot water too., is my guess.. and not to mention all those old movies on permanent play.. and bacon bread thingies.. All those exciting words like sweaters, heaters and useless umbrellas.., but it's the originality and usage of the word tea, that's taking up most of the space..; yawn..

I never understand the appeal of a fatty, greasy bacon breakfast being cooked, fried., burned, or whatever you do with it.., but hey, I like chocolate.. and cereal with none fat milk., so who am I to talk..!

Lille is in France., the A109 goes through Jinja  and Skegness is just Skegness..; isn't it.?

Divertissement., tricoteuse and other such rock an' roll words..

I haven't been to a wedding since the last one..
 Aren't creatives generally supposed to be inspired by their surroundings and stuff..(?), 'cause it's certainly difficult (for me) to find the thing when all you hear all effing day is the sound of a miserable season changing..; infact, I'm not so sure that two seasons didn't change today.. There, I said it.. and damn me for doing so.., although I have made an extreme effort NOT to use the actual word..

Look., here's the deal..; if I was happy., I'd be happy., duh.., but all I've seen and heard today are puddles.. and the sound of coldness, from the moment I woke up., to now. I've heard nothing but the sound of rain, wind and done it all with cold feet.. and this is inspiring to who..; tea drinkers.? I say, thank God for that penalty finally going in... and as I mentioned/suggested before.., hit the bloody thing.. BAM..!

Exciting times ahead
Ahh., I've driven along Devil's Point Road and Kumul Hwy.., via the Rte to Mele.. and along Queens Road to the Naviti.. seen turquoise bays and sugar cane blowing in the balmy Pacific air.. and now made it to., to, to the County  Gates .., where I've died a little..

..and have a bench to look forward to..
Holy cow...; I just checked the time and saw that the time piece was showing 7.29/19.29 and had to double check 'cause I would've gone to Vegas and put money on it being about 11.30., tomorrow night..!! What the .... do I do now..?

Today's not a good day
but now for some Marmite on toast

I just received a pic..; friends have a great habit of understanding the art of timing..
Franz Ferdinand 'Take Me out'.,
Foster The People's 'Pumped Up Kicks'..
The Vaccine's "No Hope'..
Muse 'Survival'..
Cage 'Around My Head'..
Weezer 'Perfect Situation'..

The toast's not doing it.., but thanks to Death Cab for Cutie's Soul Meets Body
I could be somewhere else.. 

Hmm., inspiration eh..; today it's about as mediocre as it gets.. It's that real.. and as mediocre as that is, it's a whole lot better than that homeless guy who's probably as wet and cold as I could never imagine..; so in the weirdest of ways evah., thank you to him, the strangers out there, for keeping me real..

all yours

to those 'we' avoid.., thank you for reminding me

'Cause I'm done 
 for those of us who accept mediocrity
.., shame

Image 52 - Week 37.. #Green Day., Greenpeace., The Green Lattern., Green Bay Packers.. and Al Green..

The Green Party
Peter Green., Green tea.. and green grass

It's all green to me

In auto racing a green flag signals the start or resumption of a race.

As I said
There's green all around..; green here, green there., green every bloody where.. Dark green, light green, medium green., green, green, green.. I take a left from my door and the avenue is blanketed by trees., which, on a good day with sunlight filtering through, looks like a Masters.., but on those dark kinda days, it's dark man..; infact it's so dark, it's darker than dark.. and for a ten minute 'chilly' walk, all there is is green.. and soon enough, there will be nothing but brown, brown and more brown.; until then there's green and shadows/shade.., but soon man, that green will turn to bloody brown..  I know it.. an' I feel it.

As I said
 There is little rest bite during the walk to see if there's a sky, but when you catch a glimpse of what I assume to be sky, it's white.. NOT fluffy white white, or interrupted white cloud formations, NO, it's solid white and grey.; no blue, just white.. Which means that it's green.. and did I mention 'green' (?), white and/or dark.. The footpath is lifting due to the roots from the hundreds of hundred years old trees.. and there are cones, damp leaves, broken branches/twigs and numerous attempts by the local authorities to repair the tarmacadam path.. and that alone looks like a dark grey/black patchwork quilt.. It's easy to stub your foot, scuff your soles and 'go over on your ankle'..

As I said
 "Green how I want you green. Green wind. Green branches." Federico García Lorca

Sadly one of those old homes in a prime location has now been sold to a developer who, guess what..(?), has torn it down... and shock horror., disbelief.. but, now's squeezing building four, FOUR.., that's 4 homes + garages on the plot that at best., if I was going to build on it, would only take 2 new homes.. It's going to be a tight squeeze for sure.. BUT this is how it's done here..
As I said., but with a blue sky..
I tried posting a joke.. ; I'm not a good joke teller, infact, I'm pretty bad.. I'd even go as far as to say I'm awful.., or even worse.., but, but.., let's not get serious about jokes..; puhleez..

"Green represents the dead image of life."
Rudolf Steiner

As I said
Oh geez, guess what..? I found some jeans that are kinda ok.. I actually found two pairs, but one pair are more for night-time wear because of those low slung butt pockets.. The pockets made my ass look real hot and sexy, but I couldn't imagine wearing them during the day.., 'cause of those damn pockets.. SO I went with the other pair and played safe.. I need some for the day that aren't going to have strange people following me around whistling and throwing their numbers at me.. Oh crap, maybe I should go back and get the second pair too..
As I said
Do ya know what.? No, neither do I.., but if you do, pray tell..

"He had that curious love of green, which in individuals is always the sign of a subtle artistic temperament, and in nations is said to denote a laxity, if not a decadence of morals."
Oscar Wilde

I have this friend..; hopefully I have more than this friend, but I have this friend.. and this friend is a really talented friend.., actually, like all my friends..; so I  guess I have lots of talented friends..  Damn it, I do too..- I need to up my damn anti, raise my game and get with the program here..

Oh.. and no matter where I walk to, I have a hill to navigate..; green, green, green and hill, hills, bloody hills...

As I said

One of my fangs is feeling kinda sharp.. Sharp enough to even consider going out after dark.. I can't tell you if I have a tattoo or not.. and apparently it's tomorrow., tomorrow.. which makes a change from today.. and while I'm at it., I'm thinking of making a comeback..

As I said
 I sang in the shower today., well, I tried but it sounded more like a cross between a cat being strangled and Avenues and Alleyways.., but once the hot water kicked in, I was much better..

"Absolute green is the most restful color, lacking any undertone of joy, grief, or passion. On exhausted men this restfulness has a beneficial effect, but after a time it becomes tedious."
Wassily Kandinsky

37's all yours baby

As I said

Remember., if it's green you like., this is definitely the place to hang.. and if you're into poorly repaired roads and footpaths., you're quids in.. Oh and hey, it's fall/autumn..; I think... Innit..

As I said..; taa oos.., innit

"However, there is an "institutional" side to green, associated with illness or Government-issued that conjure up negative emotions as do the "slimy" or bilious greens."

Thanks this week go/goes to Green - green - green - green - Harlequin - Hunter Green - India Green - Jade - Kelly Green - Midnight Green - Alan Greenspan - Seth Green - Tom Green - Hughie Green and  the Greenback

 The Crying Game

"I refuse to answer that question on the grounds that I don't know the answer.."
Douglas Adams

The seasons go by way too fast..
 How do 'we' learn to spell.., to tie our laces.. and why do drivers pick their noses..?

What's the point of our nails growing.. and why is it that I have more difficulty cutting one particular toe nail than all the others..?

I had a bowl of cereal this morning..

Go Placidly

Before security got to me..

Little Things

London2Brighton Challenge 100km - walk or jog is in the 2013 calendar...

There are times when you've just gotta sit and hold tight....

YouTube's great for those tunes you forgot all about.. and fully understand why..
Plug sockets are a miracle..; I mean, you plug something in.. and hey presto, you've got power, music, dry hair, e-mail.. and whatever happened to Dave Clark and his Five.?

 Places I dream about.. and fun thoughts

The touch of a soft and gentle hand., sight.. and the sense I get when I hear the first time.. People who GLIDE rather than thump.. and those who don't feel the need to control..

Good water tastes really good.., but what is good..? I see doppelgangers everywhere.. and why are there so many fish and chip shops..!

My feet are starting to feel the cold and the t-shirts have grown sleeves.. and I've been tempted to thrown my lightweight gloves into my pocket.., just incase that ocean temperature blows in it's unexpectedly expected way..

I know.. 

Geez, how do they get all that information onto, into something the size of a pin head.! and I have a lot of questions.. and a gratefully inquisitive mind..

A bit of light reading

 You know what I don't like(?).; fop.., phhh O Pppp., FOP.. The whole word sounds 'wet'., like getting your favourite Bruno Maglis wet, or a slimy handshake; it just isn't cool to me.. and this is my blog, however., I do get off on sincerity.. and I'm going in search of it today.. It may come in the guise of how someone simply points their finger, but I will find it.. and report back to ya..

 Tommy James & The Shondells' Hanky Panky

I like Courier to go with the excessive amount of punctuation I use.. and I lived to see a Brit win a major and if he took some PR lessons, he'd become an absolute hero, icon and legend.. As much money as they have, I simply don't see City dominating like the other team has.. and for fear of ruffling a few feathers, they also don't have the sense of globally romantic tradition either.., but few do..

 Norman Greenbaum's Spirit..

I could've worn gloves today.., the leaves are falling.. and there was mention of 'heating' too..

 Traveling along the same path
Hmm, 36 and counting..
Oh.. and I just burned the roof of my mouth 

and... there's the lively proof..

I got my glasses.,  finally... YEAH
..now for something to see.. 

Special thanks., as always, to faraway people
who're never faraway from my thoughts

Thanks this week go/goes to Dave Berry -  The Lakers - Emma Watson - Dorothea Lange - Walker Evans - Cadmium - 92662 - Shoe laces - Marc Bolan - Taurian monkeys - Canterbury's 21" painted double yellow lines and the Tour de France., for being held every year in France..

Image 52 - Week 35.. Black skies.., Muses, Kate Moss., Robbie Williams..,

Icons & friends

No more bloody yum yums.., or rambling ramblers..; no more skinny., or tapered jeans.. and where are the low rise, boot fit relaxed Levis when ya need 'em anyway.! and who's idea is it to think that guys should be in those short, tight shorts with huge cuffs on them..? I mean, come on.. and while I'm starting this one with a rant., doesn't everyone have a mirror these days..?, 'cause some of 'these' 'hipsters' may look pretty good on a photo shopped supermodel, but when you're not a photo shopped supermodel, check that mirror out before I see your ass hanging out.. an' if you catch me looking., let's be honest.., I'm not looking 'cor'., but more likely 'wow, no mirror uh.!'..
I'm free and available for consultations.. and honesty..

Hmm, light, color and a simple smile can make all the difference..

Walking outside at night is different..; there was a time when doing so meant walking under a clear, midnight blue sky full of twinkling stars.. an' close to the sounds of a silent ocean., whereas now, the sky is black and the sounds are kinda eerie and sorta spooky.. I lived in hope of seeing regular shooting stars.. and now I live more in hope of seeing the moon.., occasionally..

I don't think that chat up line's going to work dude.., but hey..
Love smiles.. and happy faces..
To keep people in., or out..?
I got mentioned on Facebook.., got liked too.. and suffered being deleted..; damn it., how will I ever survive the indignity of that button being hit..! I charged up my phone., again., visited the wheelie bins with a box of trash and saw a totally fun looking seven/7 seater bicycle being ridden in all directions.. I've never seen one before, but surely there has to be more of 'em.. If you get to see one, you'll know it when you see it..

Told ya..
Songs, tunes and walking sticks..; holy crap, I've seen more walking sticks than ice-creams in the last week.., to add to the rolled up trousers and knotted handkerchief thingy action do da.. - style is going out of fashion.. and this from a total scruff bag content in living his days out in faded Levis and a pair of New Balance on his feet..

The Changeling

The latest on my prescription sunglasses is., there's no latest..; come on Oakley.. I came across a Mexican restaurant today.., at last.. and walked right by a really happy (sic) looking Festival Director..

Really missed the boardwalk and bike trail today..; I'd have given anything to walk my bike out on Surf City's pier.. Would've loved one of those bottles covered in condensation sitting right besides a Cadillac margarita along with a cheap taco and salsa.. Missed a flag and sounds of outgoing accents full of positive stuff.. and where's Mark and Brian (and JM) when ya'd like to tune in for a laugh.. This shit doesn't get any easier when you've got sticks clicking frenetically away..

While My Guitar Gently Weeps

I had Salmon for dinner., listened to the White Album.. and remembered a smile..; ahh, that smile.. I saw a great, great pic of a cool couple on a sunset beach.., watched a video of a fantastic painter sharing her talents and cute generous dialogue.. I checked out a check-in from an airport by another travelling artist who's work is right by me.. and let's not forget.., erm.., er..; let's not forget.., uh, mmm..; damn it., I've forgotten..

 .. and why don't soccer players simply step up to a penalty and kick the crap out of it instead of trying to be cute..? Just hit the bloody thing already... Geez.., smack that ball...; BAM.!!
"I've got blisters on my fingers"

Dontcha get it..! There's a spell checker smackeroo on these here 'puters..! and if you're not sure., play safe and stay away from ticky, trikey, trickly., confusing words that ya can't spell..  I can't help you with the whole grammar gig, 'cause I've got my own problems wid dat...

 I thought a lot today
 and wrote a little too..

35 out

Stories, old friends.. and time
To artists and spectacular peeps, I'm thinkin' 'bout ya..

Image 52 - Week 34... London Fashion Week., Elaine Tettemer Marshall.. and the f*#king NHS

Somerset House., the Thames and a few bridges..

Shopping style..

I got to see the inside of a Knights office and sit in the chair.., take in Usain Bolt's green jacket., Bradley's bike and quite a few pieces of material.., not to mention the striped socks.. an' I was wearing some too..; but as I just said, let's not mention the socks... The shirt sleeve garters got noticed by the man..; which was kinda cool.., but as I'm not big on attention, I'd totally forgotten I was wearing them

The office...
I crossed London's Tower Bridge while it was carrying the Paralympic Logo.., to add to the Golden Gate one.. and the Sydney one to make three good bodies of water I've crossed in this lifetime... But there again, I've crossed Datelines, Equators and oceans too.., so whats a few bridges between friends..

In full view of the Tower..

Rode a Boris bike, checked out a commercial and saw a grand piano fall from the sky for Robbie's new video.., but I'm back to where the Triangle is trying to suck the life outta me., giant deck chairs rest on the sand.. and where dour officiates..; infact the program is looking kinda convoluted., to me, but there's always the Tate..

The Turbine Hall

Haven't mentioned the Tate's Turbine Hall and Tino Seghal's "These Associations" yet., but I guess now I have. Go see it, take it in and ask yourself., "Hmm.?".. and while I'm on it., I can share the couple of signatures I saw on the far wall in room 1 on level 4... and this stuff's for free dude.. - thank you Henri.

The Tube's a funny ole place.; not funny haha., jus' funny.. The doors open., then they close., whoosh.. and eventually, you have three escalators to navigate while wondering how the heck you managed to be so far underground.. and man, people are in a hurry..

I'm on my way..
Not sure if I mentioned that I saw a Stones exhibit also.., but if I have, you've heard it twice now.. and there's one of those weird coincidences I've become aware of., or perhaps not.. and maybe it's all a devious plan..; but I will get to the bottom of it.., eventually..

The coach was an hour late., the train on time.. and the Soho studio where I watched a colourist edit., a great experience..

.. and if I get to the whole Parade gig, which I will, after a break, I can let you know about the medals I saw.. and I saw a lot of 'em from my vantage point of across the road from St. Paul's..

Jessica and David's golds..

 Oh geez., I spilled some red vino.. I forgot to twist the bottle after pouring..; damn it..

Homage to a photographer
Playing catch-up means I'm going to have to use a little artistic license which means some of this order may get mixed up.., but I blame the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu .. and time..

So.. Week 34 is done.. finito
with thanks to

cool Directors, Producers,
camera folk, editors,
fashion peeps..and

Thanks also go/goes to Ellen - Jay Leno - Greggs - iPhone 5 - Robocop - Christiano Ronaldo - VW - Bush - Steve Sabol and SAF..
