October 24th: SoundArt10

this took far longer than it should have done and the end result was nothing like i expected it to be.

what it is, is the first song i have ever written on a guitar, utilising 3 whole chords in true status quo style

inspired by artwork created by Ian Byford

Music created by Glen Byford using a cheap guitar and the 'new' ipad, completed on october 24th 2012

October 11th: The Deadline

the line, it is dead,
i walked up to it,
trampled on it,
and spat upon it,
and still it ruled me

Forty Hall

Feeling obliged to comment after seeing twitter link.

It my have reopened just in time for the Olympics, 
but sadly I was not impressed  when i visited,
shortly after completion of restoration.
It is only a short ridaway on the bus from me,
I was so disappointed will not be going for a long time
History painted over and sanitised. to chase money from
the wedding industry.  

Visit Forty Hall Enfield, and make up you own mind
 or google.

october 8th: Damien: The Omen II

i appreciate honesty
which is why i have
the utmost respect
for the makers of
The Omen 2
because there is a
in the special features
where they pretty much admit
that the film was shit

Golden Virginia or Old Holborn

Roll up

not a smoke not a puff.
a bus ticket to Memory Lane,
as a small boy riding on top deck
of the red root master bus, the conductor
when dad pay would reel off a extra extra long ticket
just for me to play with, why this memory today well
my poetic rants seem to stimulate  a wellbeing
confidence, as I typed that, I felt the two fingers rise, 
I'm taking daily notes on a tillrole 
to keep them in order, and to be a little eccentric ,
this is never going to evolve into a rant is it ?

Maybe next time ? a

A trip to the hospital stretches the mind but depresses the sole

October 1st: prepared for winter

we've spent too much money on shopping this month, so the only logical course of action is to reduce the heating bills by wearing my brand new parka around the house
