its a hundred degrees outside
nimbus baby nimbus
the sky glowers
the fuckin’ sun blasts you you wouldnt believe
it radiates thru you like a cosmic ray
drive along with your hundred radio stations
fumes smoke air condition
i work on the past
i write notes for my boxset
i walk to some hot shop n have a tomato sandwich with chips
i read the paper about local celebrities with less talent than shrubs
someone violates my fake roses in the drive
a cockroach shudders as the ants eat it inside out
i am in botany today
yeah near the famous botany bay
toora ra roora ra atali baby
where old cap’n c(r)ook landed
working on the fucking past
thinking about the long gone days of your yore
hot days
big storms
tape recorders
hot bitumen like burn your souls off
in a blue collar blue singlet part of town
i stick twenty dollars in a poker machine n it doesnt blink
i think win win win at machine
but it goes lose lose lose
i drink coffee to stay awake
i am silent in the group
i alone in my head
isolated as usual
a high and lonely destiny said uncle andrew
in my ivory ivied i-mind tower of hours
blah blah blah
see you soon

    Don’t think I’d be able to concentrate on much of anything in that heat, but I am looking forward to seeing, reading or listening to the result of those notes you’re taking.

    you're grappling with your past and you end a blog with aha? was that a reference to 'taking on me'?

    despite being a bit sparse i found that quite engaging.
    rather like your e-mails…..they may be compact…but they always achieve their aim!

    What's the thoughts behind the boxset?
    It's good that Dabble will be available again. There must be a lot of folk out there without a copy. It took me ages to track down a replacement for my "stolen" original.

    Hola, from rain soaked San Francisco. Been away taking care of a momma dog and here 14 puppies – who knew it would be all consuming?
    Happy to say all but one of the pups have gone to their forever homes and we're sure Miss Baki will find her permanent pack soon!
    Doggie kisses,

    since I am relatively new to The Time Being, maybe one of the regulars can clue me in. I thought yesterday's snark about the "same twelve commenters" (sic) was a joke, perhaps posted by Mr. K in anonymous drag. But now I'm thinking it's some effing asshole. Comments from the twelve?

    Dear SK:

    I finally got the Operetta EP. Four amazing songs-three replete with refined vocals and music and a wonderful instrumental closer! You're 55 years young !

    It's a 'Wasabi Day' – cloudy & apparently cool by appearances, hotter than Vindaloo in reality!!
