yellow period

yellow period

gouache should be applied at the consistency of cream

all the music up till now is only a tiny fraction of what is left unwritten

if richard dawkins is the best atheist they got heaven help em

try to always turn off the battery to your noise cancellation headphones

everyone is a contender

everyone is an idiot

my daughters all astound me

a nameless anxiety takes up residence in my stomach

a yoga session and half a valium slightly mitigate this pressure

the secret transmission of yoga has begun

my ears and eyes are shot and its no fun

i go to rehearsal with glide and the songs are excellent

20 years on the songs of williams shine on n on

tricky weird idiosyncratic words

impression of S and M then sudden spiritual insights

cruelty and mercy within one line

william found spaces in music and ways of singing

no one had ever thought of before

except maybe shayne carter from straitjacket fits

its mean and tender at the same time

how do you fucking pull that off?

well thats what william could do

this is gonna be a couple of great shows

this music has not dated one minute

songs you can get your teeth into

meanwhile bondi is rainy

i work on art

pick scarlet up from school

she is such a little compliment giver

when i was a kid i’d feel sudden rushes of love for my dad too

this happens occasionally to scarlet

she squeezes my hand and says kind things to me

and gushes her appreciation of the way i discharge my fatherly duties

she is not a ray of light every day tho please dont think that

lately the child has begun to really fascinate me

she runs deep and true and she has access to something special and indefinable

tomorrow is a stint in hobart for macbeth

a bit of everything in that cold city way down south

pastel is a lovely art form

there is something so cool about it altho you mightnt think it

pastel has become my bass

and gouache my guitar

so i paint and i write music still on rapid learning curve ball

fuck its fun to be me ha ha ha

but i wouldnt know anything different, would i?

anyway gratitude to the one true god of my understanding is due

hare krsna !

    Nice prose. I always like reading about Scarlet, she is like another that I love dearly.

    ‘F… its fun to be me.’ Interesting concept. Always a big question in many eyes. Who is me?

    I wish I could escape to a cold city.
    How’s my English summer?
    It’s a hot, humid hell.
    Roll on October.

    No one does pastels as beautifully as you sk. You really have an eye for colour.

    OMG who would have known how bad my grammar and spelling is? Like i’m in second grade… thank god i’ve got experts looking over the text… i can’t tell you, every sentence, every word is a miracle to me… your lyrical verse is so vivid… so substantial… how could i not find what i’ve had found? a million dreaming dreamers watch over us this night… dream of now, see you in your sleep… you’re getting very tired… o my god, ones of these day we’re gonna go straight…

    Thank you and all the other many artists who played last night. Glide must be a classic! I am a new convert. Glad i experienced that unique style and sound with its tricky yet natural sounding tempo changes and all the light/shade with the softness and crescendos.Interesting to chat to a few younger people about their memories of William when he was alive and their experience of the times. There is a lot of love and affection for him and his music from what i could sense last night. Could you have made your entrance any later? Only joking. Well worth it and entrancing! 🙂

    That’s ok. If I was a little disappointed about something, it was that you didn’t have any mugs for sale up the back (that I could see). I need a new mug if you don’t mind, my original one is peeling. I confess to maltreatment by putting it in the microwave and dishwasher. As all old boilers should know, and as I shouldve known, you can get away with it in the short term but not the long term. Therefore, if I get my hands on a new crystalline rush, I promise to only handwash! No rush! and I am not being sarky.p.s. how much do they go for these days? I mean, it has lasted at least a couple of years and the actual mug is fine, just all the crystalline fragments…mea culpa of course.

    Lol.Hope youre not being too self deprecating. Anyway, forgot to mention the little celophany fragments look quite good as motifs on my tiles. I wonder if any mythbusters know why the design peels off the mug but sticks unaided to tiles? Something to do with temp i guess… sorry for being tangential.
