Birfday Shortbreadmen


I’ve never been one for birfdays. Send me a card if you want/must and I’ll be more than grateful. Although these home-made shortbread men was such a nice and heartfelt touch—thank you Shazia.

One of these cool cats is my Dad. Taken mid/late sixties, my Dad was a skin basher in this and many other bands for the next fifteen years. It’s my new wallpaper on my laptop.

What is best?


“What’s New?” is an interesting and broadening eternal question, but one which, if pursued exclusively, results only in an endless parade of trivia and fashion, the silt of tomorrow. I would like, instead, to be concerned with the question “What is best?,” a question which cuts deeply rather than broadly, a question whose answers tend to move the silt downstream.

All created in Garageband, starting with only the vocal audio.

I should do more as I really enjoy putting them together…

Even Hillman was at a stage in his life where he had never written a script before… that’s a comforting and influential thought for us all as we pursue new creative endeavours.
