Sadness Graces my Grubby Toilet Window book

My grubby Toilet window book for the past few Months has been a copy of John Peels Autobiography. As he never finsihed it, half is written by his wife with a lot of honesty, openess and Love.

As I near the final pages a sadness and a turning away from it is starting to occur. I dont want to go to that place of regrets. I to used to clutch a demo tape in the hope of giving it to the one man who might play it on air. The hope of a kid who knew of nothing except music and art.

Nothings changed except the world know is content flooded. He used to listen to demos day in day out. I wonder how he could of coped with Soundcloud?

Its not weird that I dread that part, iits like the tension in a movie your seen a hundred times. Allthough I’ve already been there it holds the loss. Whilst I read of his life he lives when I reach his end he is no more but a memory again and I read something else, about science, or maths, and his is no more. Maybe thats why its poiniant…..

My Brother in Law tells me a Post a Day is probably putting people off from Commenting.

What do you quiet bunch out there think? Plus What Do you think I should focus the body of the post on, Theres the Music, The Disabilities and Coping with them, Or purely about my Art? Any Opinions Welcome.  

The Music.. Currently listening to a lot of early T-Rex when they were known as Tyrannosaurus Rex  in my opinion a much cooler Name. Heres a video to give you a feel…  

Introduced by the awesome John Peel heres Sara Crazy Child Real blues gone roots crazy. Takes a minute to start long intro.

Heres another Blinder she was born to be a unicorn.

21st November 2011 – The Three Distractions or Distracted by Good Things

Now Thats a Mouthful!

1st Good Distraction

Its a Awesome Book. Currently my Toliet Book XD Always the best place to read  I think its because you know John Peels voice so well when your into truly different music so much. He speaks to you on a totally human level without any kind of Ego it seems. He was just the man who brought the music to the airwaves, he thought. I think he was much more Read It.
2nd Good Distraction 
Ive mentioned it in Passing, but I have a De-generative Eye Condition  called RP. In short in 10 years I will be Legally Blind if Im lucky Ive got a few more years on top of that. 

How is this a Positive Distraction? you say. Well its not, but joining a select group of people on facebook who can talk openly about how they cope with this has helped me a lot. The group is the Visually Impaired/Blind Men’s Group If your  guy like me who is losing his sight they can be a real help. A Big thanks to tem for turning my gloom around yesterday. If you can see the humor in tradegy you may just be allrght 🙂 3rd Good Distraction
