Blink

July 10th, 2011

Found this music so gave it a go... too gushy?

Dinner will be served at 7 - new and improved(?) haha

The Bartender Told Me (1) - Finally

May 31st, 2011

As I've mentioned before - I'm proud of this poem. I have taken a long time trying different beats against it and I have performed it twice now on stage without music. I wanted it to get the thumbs up from Buzz from Somewhere off Jazz Street before I let this one go, but the thumbs are up and I think I may be finally there with it. Thank you to Somewhere off Jazz Street for their continued support of my work. The title of this track is 'Gave' here

May 10th, 2011

Thank you to Somewhere off Jazz Street for their continued support of my work. I chose 'When the Living ain't Easy' for this one. You can hear more of their wonderful music by pressing here

Inelegant Curtsey

A weepy to start the year? Haha, why not indeed. The words are here

I want to smell nice…

New CD!

May 2nd, 2010

Please click on these words here to see details of my new cd. The recording quality is much better on the actual disc and I have packed in the ones I consider to be the best of the bunch for just £3!

I hope you like it.

CD

April 13th, 2010

To celebrate the (nearly there) launch of my cd (which will be available from May at a cost of £2!), I give you one of my new favourites...

Tiddly Om to music

April 7th, 2010

Lots of fun and much easier to breathe with it now. Not sure whether it would be good for performance to have such a heavy beat but I shall try it both ways. The music is Voltaic Oscillation by Araqknid

00:0000:00

New version

February 20th, 2010

of One Woman. It's slicker but I'm not sure the sound quality is any better. Any comments?

The Shopping List

September 4th, 2009

Without exception, everyone who mentions my poems to me, says that this one kept coming back into their mind. That's a nice thought. It's perhaps one of my shortest ever poems but it says a lot, I think. Happy muzak! yay!

The Shopping List

Folded neatly, once, discarded in the basket

with a snippet of leaf from a cabbage, I think,

a pointless piece of somebody else’s life

that gets trapped between my fromage and my frais.

Carried home with me, in my bag for life,

(predictably frayed at the edges)

and perused over freshly purchased ginger tea,

I read,

‘One pt of milk,

One wholemeal sliced,

Carrot and swede (diced),

One chicken breast’

Then written in a different hand,

as though a secret thought,

or a cherished wish…

'flowers'.

My Jerry Springer Moment

August 23rd, 2009

This proved to be popular at my last performance... I changed the word 'penis' to 'doodah' which didn't do the rhythm any harm and raised an extra titter as I'd already explained what I was going to do. I wish I could perform it while I was out busking but it's probably still a little close to the fishbone.

The Launderette

February 19th, 2009

And I cursed and cursed my washing machine breaking. Silver linings and all that... I hope to do a video next week for this. I've certainly got the laundry piling up in preparation. (Special thanks to the lovely lady in Bubbles Launderette, Church Road, Hove for letting me video her tumble drying last week, haha).

Music by the wonderful Somewhere Off Jazz Street once again as their voice suits this kind of poem so perfectly.

One Woman

February 9th, 2009

Yes, I've always had a thing for drummers but purely on an intellectual level, of course. This is one of my personal favourite podcasts. Music courtesy of the amazing, astounding FQU.

Catholic guilts

January 10th, 2009

will always make this a slightly uncomfortable poem for me but it is supposed to represent hypocrisy both in the church and in the media. I think God would approve, haha. (I'm going to have fun mixing a video for this.) Put this together as a nod to Philip and his project.

Persevering for simplicity

December 16th, 2008

I really just wanted to call this Life, but I thought that might be a little melodramatic (which I am trying to avoid lately, ha!) The consensus seems to be Life in C Major but I shall keep the title above for now. Oh well, deep breath and...

00:0000:00

Fur Elise

December 2nd, 2008

Just for me probably. Hmmmm... can you tell the metaphor in the last section? Or is it just my abstract mind one step too far? (Yes, that's a car horn at the critical point - bastard white van man!)

I can't do the umlaut in the title, which is frustrating the bejeebers out of me, so I'll do it here...

  • Für Elise

Phantasma - with bells on!

November 30th, 2008

Dan you are amazing and I am SO thrilled with this. I owe you a mint tea.
