“Come on let’s kick it up a notch. Tighter, is that good? We’ve had plenty of pleasure, now how about a little pain between friends; it’s all about balance. Remember what they say about pain, no pain, no gain. While we wait for the onset of discomfort and bad feelings to take hold, we can guzzle plenty of water, scoring big time on Hydrogen, making like the perfect fractal finding our way to infinity and back, let’s do the math. If you’re not up for that, we can always put on our foil hats, meditate and hope to reach Nirvana.”
— June Gloom, The Gray Zone

Here’s to magic! Enjoy!

Another song from my new album, ‘DREAM RESCUER’. This one is called ‘REXIE BELIEVES IN MAGIC’. Here’s the lyric in case you fancy singing along. I hope you enjoy;

Rexie believes in magic

Has done all along

Shipwrecked and nowhere else to go

Its time he learns to head back home


Rexie believes in magic

Has done all along

Streetwise, believes in love and fate

Still searching for his only song


Rexie sits alone

Its getting darker…

Shipwrecked and nowhere else to go

He dreams of home

And the girl he loves the most


With the girl he loves the most


Rexie believes in magic

Has done all along

Shipwrecked and nowhere else to go

He dreams of home

And the girl he loves the most  

If you like the song, maybe you’d like to buy the album. You can listen to the whole album…

It’s not every day that I have the privilege to know someone as humble and sincere as the immensely creative George Blamey-Steeden.

Zoolon (George) has recently released a new album, “Dream Rescuer”. The album captures the surreal nature of sleep’s dreams, brilliantly done. All songs are composed, preformed, produced, recorded and mixed by the multi-talented George. Please enjoy.

New album from Zoolon, listen for free; buy if you like.

I am forever young and forever old, from everywhere and from nowhere, memories muddled and memories clear: so many and yet all too few. Yesterday, indiscernible from today or tomorrow, for where there is no time, there is no matter. I am akin to some wild thing that comes into its own bloom but once a year, hidden in the Woods of the Wounded Sparrow. The cruel irony, partners: decay and decadence, dance in frenzied quickstep to Rimsky-Korsakov’s, “Flight of the Bumblebee”, while onlookers: the moon and stars, rule over my endurance: longing to be found and recognized, not saved.


“I am a collection of dismantled almosts.”

I Am, written by John Clare, read by Tom O’Bedlam.

Call Of Duty  — Artist Mitch Griffiths


Half Nelson

He was the unknowable
He was the ever shallow pool of liquid amber
He was the clink of ice, the red booths
He was the motels, the Murphy beds, the naps
He was the driver, never the talker
He was the ageless, the timeless
He was the smoothness of face, for it never moved
He was the invisible, yet he was the visible
He was the walking wounded
He was the wakeful dead


“The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.”

The Art of Distraction is mischievous by design, some elements are known, some unknown, some — subconscious. I look away, and back again, mute, questioning the arrival of white noise, riding a train of moonlit thoughts through the pane glass, disguised as subliminal dust, coating everything with a pretense of sparkling bright. It breaks all barriers, talking over the primitive language of silence, with its frequency and static: sharp as the rip of a chainsaw chewing through tin cans loaded with coin. Distraction comes from a place where time is void, illusions are kind, no boundaries exist, nor any other voice.
