Another Week 75 - Puppies., Lotto., Tate Modern and



SO., this week I have to congratulate the coolest new creative west coast first time parents.. aNd an old friend signing out.. The best kind of people embarking on new fun chapters.. Good stuff happening to good people is the best kind of journey.. Nice work guys and gals..
another sensitive mention to one
falling asleep for the last time
You know., what's kinda funny to me is that it gets read.., like it or not..; I like that.. Truth an' honesty far outweighs the insincerity that fills the pit of yer stomach with that whole sense and wave of nausea..
Visited a place and wonder why.. but think I've done it for the last time now though..

New England 3
Boscombe 0

don't confuse fall., with autumn
fall happens on the east cost while autumn happens on the south coast
both display totally different colours
Not really., but
I do think one is dark, danker and wetter

The Clown
every time someone posts a rather naive political bias mocking thingy
I childishly feel like posting something bias thingy about their post
not necessarily because I have a different political point of view
but simply because it shows there is stuff available to post
about both sides
lets make it about facts
We're talking about actually leading
and not pitching another TV series

DO we really give a monkey's do da about Brad and Angelina., or their compound..; really .. so yes., there is aN horizon 'thatta' way, but this way there's nout but man made trashy type deal things.. higgledy-piggledy stuff here., higgledy-piggledy stuff., there.. and higgledy-piggledy stuff., everywhere.. man..; roads., paths., buildings., design, repair and seemingly all managed by phd'd masters.., allegedly.., apparently.. Long live Bet Fred.., long live Bunny's Kebab.., long live Alfie's fish an' chips.. an' long live Boscombe's cash generator., long live The Bake House Patisserie .. and long live those who actually truly believe we live in a creatively cultural corner of paradise.. Have you ever tried to force a jigsaw piece from one puzzle into a completely different puzzle..(?).; well these guys are playing with several different boxes.. and to make it worse, they've opened all of 'em, scattered the pieces on the floor., saying something like.., ''hey dude., this one will go here., look..; well almost.., with a little bit of force''.. ''well, it looks like a roof and it matches the colour of the leaf.., man.''.. ''quick., give me some more hallucinogenics man.., I'm on a roll here..''.. ''dude.., I mean., let's stick another sign up at the tax payers expense.., like over here man next to the groovin' food court..''.. ''cool colours man..; jus' like my glitter ball..''... ''yeah., let's get another ice-cream, jump up and down and go to the betting shop.., Mr. Mayor..''

Do you know the way to San Jose..
I've been wondering just how long the 'netting'., scaffolding., plastic ties and signs are going to adorn the town's center stage talking point visitor visiting seaside ish crumbling bit of Arthur Askey (who) heritage like pier.. before someone has the desire to to do something about it..! Surely before minute signs., before empty hot dog courts and before another echo headline., we can do somethang.., surely shirley.. I mean., I've got a spanner and a few nuts and bolts if that's what it'll take.. I suppose though, we'd better invest in a pheruckin big ass'd zipline first before we address the foundation.. yet another bit of genius thinkin' batman.. let's build on rocky foundations because.., at least it'll look prettier while it rots away, man. rock 'n' roll baby.. and where do you work.; remind me again., an' what qualifications are you proud to have earned..; ahh, digital..?

L.A. is a great big freeway
But hey., I know..; let's stick another new thingy-me-bob., over here and people will think we're actually making loads a cool new improvements .; they'll never even notice all the crap anyways.. Nah., why address this.. when we can tear up the sidewalk, patch it up with yet another undulating square meter of different surface..   and rather than do the job correctly, we can cut corners and complete it like the piece of junk it is.. In another 15 years you'll never notice that we're playing with a different deck and hey, I'll be retired collecting my groovy government pension and sitting on my fav' beach side bench..

I've been away so long. I may go wrong and lose my way
Yep., fun new digital happenins are going down while the rot continues to rot.. Hey, walking thru da gardens baby a big ass rat sauntered across the patchwork quilt of tarmac that otherwise goes by the name of 'path'.. Jus' bloody sauntered it did..; I'm almost sure the darn thing stopped, hesitated, looked at me and thought. 'so dude (?)., are ya gonna get that damn camera out and take this shot., or not.!', before throwing me the middle finger and wandering  off.. Good thing it hides in the 'crazy golf' compound where all the tourists hang out.. That'll be nice for the visitors to enjoy some local wildlife in all it's natural outdoor glory.. an' setting.. Yep., life in the gardens.. Drunks (fact)., drug deals (allegedly)., rats (definitely).. and a missing bit of balloon summer (fact)... You couldn't make this stuff up., even if you were an Echo or hip digital writer.., an' I@m jus' some ol faded geezer with a particular specific penchant for simplicity., light an' color..

- I've always wondered why peeps go full out to over complicate stuff with long winded university type words., other than the need to perform for recognition..

Thursday's rollin'
Me and the M25.. The Head and Turbine Hall.. How do peeps manage to know what's in the papers they mock.., without readin' 'em.. I kinda fink it's like me being driven crazy reading those consistently gawd awful cringe worthy social media posts compiled and left.., or for ever wanting to cut back on choc'., or going cold turkey with Pepsi Max., every day..; I guess we just love train wrecks...  I knew I shoulda put sun screen on yesterday when striding out to the Inside..   15.2 miles of groovin' autumn sun (like action) down the right hand side of ma face., sure ain't pretty.. and my legs are thin.., baby.. No wonder me back was a lil wet..; Osprey 18 and sunshine walkin' 'll do that to an old geezer...

All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments''

Another Week 74 - Birtherism, National Parks, Pacific Crest Trail and

The Edge

Ab Initio


Wow., well the local creative force is addressing homelessness., apparently..; expect the grove's bakery, tesco express and pedestrian crossing to be at the forefront of this exciting news.. Big changes afoot., like (?) ., erm.., well., er..(?);  jus' expect plenty of social media posts anyway.. Ok., well, just expect a couple of posts then..

The team's flyin' baby.. and let us not forget the festival..! There will be the two clowns stuck in a cardboard world to understand., man..; there's an open call for those groovers and shakers who can't normally get in or who respond late to deadlines..- expect that standard to be high, high though..
if you're an intrepid roving reporter., you'll no doubt already have assignments., however if you're not and have not., then you're in luck.. lots of free shows to crash access..but hang on., you have to pay for the privalege, privelige..., privelage.., privilege..yeah., privilege..; damnit, I'm too old.; there's an ageist age thingy deal type action going down.. I'm too old to understand the whole gig anyway.. Straight over my heady head head it all goes.., sadly..

Now., if you're likely to be circumnavigating the globe., or merely crossing international date-lines., dealing with time zones or hemispheres., or hitch-hiking continents..., or most likely, jus' walking from the bus stop travelling specifically for this week (?) long memorable extravaganza., accommodation is easy to find., as is food and drink. There are such culinary delights as a Mickey Dees., there are fish and chip shops., pizza 'land'. and enough coffee shops to sink the titanic.; oh wait.., the titanic., hmm. Pack your goretex and jus' follow the noisy., spark and flame throwing inferno outfit.. and be a part of it.., for nothing.. even..

Make sure you're over 18
under 30
sorry if you're not
by being either too young.,,
past it
too bloody old

10:20 a.m.

For the fab., hip., groovy groovesters get your trendy brown gear out the closet., dry those espadrilles., brush up on yer lingo., say the right things., shake the right hands., smile when you're in certain company., but ignore the peons.., dodge the old folk., hit those parties., baby.. and may the creative force be with you..
There will be nobody here you'll have ever heard of., creatively speaking., unless you live within a few hundred yards of base camp., but that's not the point .., there will be work to make you think and work that will make you scratch your head.. There will be shit  stuff that'll cause your jaw to fall in total amazement and as the cultural devotees will tell ya., this week will be full of positive gag reflex quotes that'll fill the local social media pages with awe inspiring breaking flowery sentences..

all bollocks
august breakfasts
Aboriginal Australian
abdominal breathing
abhorrent biscuit
Abukir Bay
Abyssinian banana

I mean., really..; what's with the whole british bake off move that appears to NEED to head the headline news..! With ALL that's going on in the world., this story is taking center stage.. and frankly., I jus' don't get it.., man..
I think there are people who simply just get out of their cars and leave 'em where they want.. As long as there appears to be a free space, just hit that spot, turn off the engine and lock that puppy up before walking away.. Wait., is that a drive way., is that a  car (?) that will obviously be blocked in., does it look like that's a drive thru kinda place to someone's house., or garage..; are those specifically painted lines to park between.. Holy cow baby.. There are six acres to park and you leave a car 'right' there.. That's not stupidity., or carelessness., but just plain selfish ignorance.. Is there such a thing as 'selfish ignorance'.?

One day it's the end of summer., the next it's kinda mild and autumnal., then the next it's effing winter.. The light's changed in a nano of a flee's heartbeat and the temps have dropped in a nano of a bee sting.. aNd the precipitation chances have increased by the scaffolding truck load.; I don't do dark, dank., dreary very well., if at all.., so., I'm not a happy chappy. - Inconsiderate parking mixed with rain on a dark early weekend morning on top of those combative presidential appearances.. just aren't workin' for me..
Give me Arizona
give me Nevada
give me southern California
but keep your
 80,823 sq mi
 αἱ Πρεττανικαὶ νῆσοι

with its
crappy football team
maritime climate
quite narrow temperature differences between seasons
(what an understatement)
and shove it 'archaically' speaking., where the sun don't shine
Oh., wait
someone already did

winter's a long ass'd year.., unless you're a fab hipster groovester.. but if you're not., it is.. linguistically speaking..

I just wasted 3:18 minutes of my life watching Cory Feldman's Today gig that I'll never get back..

Another Week 73 - Pepe an' Jose., Julia, the Paralympics.,

Roald Dahl

Ramble On
Yellow leaves are beginning to 'appen., already.. and for the few months my skin don't itch., man, I now have to psych myself up for the next ten months of scratching.. I followed some geezer yesterday who was carrying a roll of Christmas paper.. while another dude was carrying a plastic Xmas shopping bag..
I did another commercial..; I'll be on the road again.. and it's car tax season.. I'm feeling Iceland., Stavanger & Finland with a lil Camino thrown in for good measure..

Race of Gentlemen

I guess I just live a different life.. I like Weetabix., but not a wet backpack.. I'd like to get the two creases on my forehead tanned.., but don't know how.. and I'd also like to de-sunlotion my dark glasses.. I'm 2 lbs over my fighting weight.. an' I don't do habits..; well, yes I do., damnit.

Life's rhythm is gonna change soon.; I can feel it in my bones.. My 50-140mm f2.8 Fuji gig is rock'n'roll ready.. There's a certain personality trait that drives me up the wall.. & my mind went there.. 

signs are everywhere

New York sounds like New York.. I throw down the gauntlet to see if you get through the first five minutes of 

See No Evil Hear No Evil without laughing.; thankyou Gene Wilder/Richard Prior..

Why does stretching feel good
summer early morning sounds are good different
really., what is it with 'those' eyebrows.. girls..

Life without sunsets
peace behind gates

I guess., I simply don't know how to 'operate' a TV..- apparently Russell Howard's funny.. and the bobtail squid's tiny.. David Moyes is 'shaping' (?) up another memorable team..

The 'epic strut' deal ad for Money Supermarket leaves me cold an' shakin' all over.. and duh., obviously I remember it.. so the ad company did their gig, (I guess)., however, I'm remembering it for ALL the wrong reasons and as a result, could never seriously 'go' with them for the epic fail and lack of 'professionalism' I'd expect from a money deal place thingy..
I mean., someone actually signed off on that deal., paid the budget and said something like..; ''Wow., agency peeps., that is bloody fantastic and a piece of TV commercial art..; nice work guys and gals..'' 
Such is the way of the world now..; let's produce gawd awful stuff..

The car's set up for another legal year..
What happened to the English high street..! It's turned into something really quite shabby and unrecognisable from a western 'power's' expectation..., or certainly this individual's idea of where we should be at.., man..
Trashy., sad.., decaying., dark., spooky and whatever feeling it is that makes my skin crawl..

Tis jus' another week's worth of experience, thought and living
done deal

... but not before I try to swallow even more of the Hilary and Donald comedy hour.. and what it throws up on my feed..

Thanks this week go/goes to - Travis Rudolph - The man known as Reid - Airbnb’s Disaster Response Program - Fidencio Sanchez - Emma Yang - Rene Neira and Alexey Romanov
