September Through to October

Ne'er oft' stead(ly) seen here, misandry is a common theme, 33 out of every 78 percentages evoke a reaction vicariously minted. Mental health; sweep it right under the carpet, right under the carpet sir, the worse the funding gets the harder we sweep it right under the carpet, right under the carpet, right under the carpet like Freudian denial. 18 out of every 90 provoke a response simulacra and sensationalism marry/exported trope symbiosis culture clash(ed) cornucopia. An endemic epidemic pandemic supra-specific exact arbitrariness of location(less) the very point I was trying to make was lost in the words I used to communicate. Oft' seen ne'er err somnolence.

Cliquesque like catholicism permanence is a radical breath

August Through to September

A souvenir perhaps? A collision of chance, coincidence upon coincidence, we build a fragile construct. Something to remind me, fragility, beauty, delicacy; an intrinsic evocation, a light at the end of the tunnel.
Then you must be hope and the beauty of you, your awkward impulse, your childlike demeanor, your searing intelligence, your hair intricately woven and your powerful spirit, is the light that forms the fragile construct that we call friendship. That we could have called love.

July through to August

Thought must follow fiscal idiosyncrasies as if money were sentient, although intangible: a la human consciousness.
Computers designing for computers, given alienation, given an inherent misanthropy; solipsism appears to necessitate a very human self-loathing.
Set up to fail throwing numbers at a wall, the creation of debt redefines profit as a measurement of ghosts, a raison-d'etre, a soul.

June Through To July

Internationally out of touch with reality, a semblance of metaphoric misnomers, a miscarriage of justice, compliance is a drug company's debt to Plato. Or so it would seem. Mimesis speaks volumes about the immutability of politics; the simulacrum of Trump; a parody of the Political; a pastiche of advertising; Crows use tools. Indebted to the ghost-like manifestation of time; secretly cryptic, labyrinthine systems; an incessant dirge of legalities; obfuscation rewards High Capitalism and its despotic leaders.

May through to June

Way too much information the whole thing went tits up
onomatopoeia we could elicit crimes from (faux-)authenticity 
we know we cocked up now we can't do fuck all about it
too late to shout out about it

it's like a needle in a haystack, you can't see the wood for the trees we've been trumped by money a despicable cronyism,
nepotism, your nebulous computer an automated dada
we should leave culture for the masses.

January through to February (2018)

New technologies equal new (un)realities.

Social media less solipsistic, more mechanistic.  Immerse upon the actuality of metallic parts conducting electrical charge.

A concept of misandry ever more pertinent; a quiescence beneath a hyper-real, frenzy of media-strewn, self-centered women.  Misappropriated chivalry, a Western endgame; a frenetic response to give aid to war-torn or famished countries.

A chimera, an aberration, a semblance of something indistinct, a fade, a diary from the corner of your eye.  A concept of homogeneity; an absurdity manifesting as substance, Trumped by fake idolatry.

La Belle Jour

La Belle Jour



Islands wax and wane, appear and disappear; a temporary relief from the ubiquity of blue. A continental European oddity, Jersey's pristine blue seas and quaintly British, going on French culture, allows one to step across the 26 miles that separate the UK and France; continental Europe.

As a British man, cultural although I may be, I can't help having my preconceptions, perceptions and comprehensions limited by a rather ferocious and inclement sea that is, literally, all around me.... A sea-faring Nation, us Brits are the champions of cultural stasis, conservative and emotionally-muted; somewhat OCD and over-analytical, a little bit anal, we should have continued the 1960's revolution well into the 21st Century to align ourselves more with the sophisticated Gauls and demonstrative Latin-folk.

I write as Brexit threatens to alter societal vagueries, but not the status quo, not a European recherche, historical, intellectual perspective, nor will it alter our very British love of the continent, nor our fierce defence of our islands and our eccentric, emotionally reserved British existence. Somehow Jersey and its quaint sister islands allow us to reflect on on la difference and, entrez-nous our deep-seated similarities.

The Chairman Dances - John Adams





On Adam's "The Chairman Dances" Combined with Imagery from the Chinese Ballet "The Red Detachment of Women"



The synergy between the magnificent balletics and the (post)modern, march of Adam's music is both intriguing and exhilarating! The cogent and graphic symbolism used in the choreography is breathtaking and, juxtaposed with Adam's methodical syncopations, the listener/viewer can begin to lose a sense of time and space. If this is parody or pastiche and "authenticity" is lost, then it doesn't really matter when art breaks down restrictions and divines a truth beyond our usual experiences. The fight scene at the end is almost, pure West-Side Story, Jazz dance-like, brutal yet intrinsically aesthetic. The political/cultural ironies are not lost on me, nor the societal eccentricities of 1950's Communist China and its "Amazonian-style' army. 21st Century democracies seem to borrow from the constraints of Communism, but I guess that's another subject...
