Poems, thoughts, ideas, ponderings, rants, etc.

Okay, my new website is taking shape nicely. Go take a look at it:

Laughing at the Sky

I've worked quite hard on it over the last week to get it to a point
where I'm pretty happy with how it looks. Obviously, I will change
certain parts as time goes on. It will probably naturally evolve over
time. Also, there are sections without much in, but at least I've got
the layout how I want it. Also, there is a HUGE amount of stuff to
listen to in the Music section. Aside from the overall apearance, the
Music section has been the part I've been working on the most.

Also, if you want to stay constantly updated with what I put on there,
there is an RSS Feed and Twitter Account, which will both update
whenever I add a new post to the site. The Twitter account is plugged
directly into the site, so that will update automatically. However, if
RSS or Twitter aren't you're thing (and that's totally
understandable), then just stay on this e-mail list, and I'll try and
remember to post here when I put anything really good on the site. I
have, however, changed the name of this mailing list from MEJC to
Laughing at the Sky, but your membership remains the same (of course,
otherwise you wouldn't be getting this e-mail now).

The focus of this site is mainly my creative things. I'm trying to
make more of an effort to channel more of my energy into my creative
things again. I'm trying to get back into the photography and the
creative writing more, and one day, when I can afford to buy a new
soundcard and some good speakers, I'll get back into the music again.

I'm going to make a real effort to keep this site updated, even if
it's just me rambling on or ranting about some kind of stupid nonsense
whizzing round my head. Or if I can't think of anything else to post,
I'll just post a funny video or whatever.

If you spot any mistakes (e.g. typing errors or audio files that won't
play), let me know. The site isn't perfect yet, but there should be
enough there now for you to enjoy. I just want it to be a fun place
for me to share my creative stuff plus anything else I feel like

I want this site to be 100% my thing, done my way, just me dancing to
the beat of my own strange drum. If it's your thing too, then just
enjoy it for what it is. If it's not your thing, then go find
something that is. I won't lose any sleep...




By the way, I'm currently working on a totally new personal website. It's going to be so amazing, when you visit it you might actually die from an overdose of amazingness.

In other news...

I went to see the film Inception on Saturday night with my friends Harvey Warvey Pudding And Pie and American Mark. It was fantastic! Aside from the fact that it was very confusing, it got 100% in every way for me. Leonardo DiCaprio, the performances, the special effects, everything! Even the music was amazing!

Just before the film, on the way up the escalator to the screen, I think I temporarily fell in love with a woman in front of me. She had that look I really like, with the short hair and the whole kind of androgynous thing going on. She reminded me a bit of my ex actually, only even nicer and more sane (from what I could tell from such a brief moment - which isn't a lot really now I come to think about it). She sounded slightly forgeign (not sure where), and was stood next to this young guy who she was touching on the shoulder and saying to him, "You're such a handsome guy..."

I couldn't stop dreaming about her when I got home.


Went for a walk with my walking group yesterday. Saw really good old friends Darren and Bernie who I haven't seen for a while, and had such a fantastic day I think it almost gave me a nervous breakdown.

I think that's enough excitement for one week. Now I need to calm down and work on my new website...

Far away,
that's where everything seems to happen;

where, on blustery coastal cliff tops
old couples fly kites
and dream.

Half a mile away
a man stands alone,
smiling, waving,
wearing only his underpants.

There was a dog called Bruce who, at the age of 7 years 3 months 12 days
4 hours 17 minutes and a year, suddenly understood the meaning of the
entire universe, which, in his own words is "Woof woof bark bark barkety
woofy woof," which when translated from Dog into English means "We are
all made the big clay of time." One day, his owner, Barbara, made a clay
model of herself, which exploded and caused the fire alarm to go off the
entire block of flats. The fire service were called, and Bruce bit one
of the firemen on the leg. The bite went septic, then gangrene, and
eventually the leg had to be amputated, so he had to retire from the
fire service, so he started a business selling dog meat to London's
Chinese minority.

I said:
I think I need to be careful
if I get much higher
I just might take flight

She said:
I had this beautiful dream last night,
I think I tried to drink the sun...

There's just one sock in my bedroom.
I don't know where there other one is.
I need to find the other sock.
Who's taken this sock and not brought it back?
It's certainly not on my foot, so where is it?

Where is this sock?
It's not here.
I've only got the one sock.
Please someone bring back the other sock,
or, Sock, oh Lonely Sock,
if you know where you are hiding,
please come back, so I can wear you on my foot again.
