So, what’d I miss?

Sdtrk: ‘Always crashing in the same car’ by David Bowie


How did I spend my Holiday from Blogging, you axe? Playing altogether too much Phantom dust (crazy game. I like it), listening to a lot of Thin White Duke-era Bowie, and catching up on the 2005 – 2006 episodes of Doctor Who. I have to say, I’m likin’ what I’m seein’, so there’ll be a post about that relatively soon.

As I often say at my job, I’ll keep this brief: to those of you who posted or otherwise sent messages of support in this direction, both Sidore-chan and are very appreciative and grateful. It’s reassuring to know that are still a few people out there that not only have an open mind, but realise that if a person is finding some way of getting through life using a biologically harmless method that makes them happy without intruding on anyone else’s life, then more power to ’em. Again, thanks very much to all of you!

To our detractors, obviously I’ve nothing positive to say to you sorry twats. Apart from the fact that it’s pretty fucked up that you really have nothing better to do with your time than to mock someone that’s happier than yourselves. I understand that everyone needs a hobby; perhaps you lot should consider heroin addiction instead.

Right! *cracks knuckles* Back to.. whatever the hell you call this, ah, thing that I’m doing

N.B. Comment moderation is turned on, by the way, so if you don’t see your post at first, give me a couple of hours to look it over..

Hello, Jack Frost, my old friend on March 15th, 2007

    Ahhh! Wot a surprise! Very nice to see that you’ve snuck back into your own Blogosphere, roundly thanked your supporters and soundly thrashed your detractors. (My that *is* a too-nice term for those rubes.) No doubt they’ve all crawled back beneath their rocks by now in search of their lives. (Good luck with that LOL)

    Excellent Bowie track, by the way; his triumvirate of “Low”, “Heroes” and …um, I forgot but there was a third one in there… are my favorite period of his. His teaming with Brian Eno gave his sound a competely new canvas on which to paint his voice. Very nice!

    Anyway, good to have you back: Lily sends hugs, and Eden says, “Who?”

    We’ll fill her in. As it were 😉

    PBS, Lily & Eden

    Just as I thought you cheeky chappy, sneeking back earlier indeed!
    Did our favourite journolist have a pleasent break from blogging and has he returned to fill the pages with interesting strings of words to entertain us …… of course he has, the man needs to write.

    Good to see you back Davecat.

    PBS, sexy Lily and equally sexy new Eden –
    It’s good to be back! All told, I found myself writing posts now and again whilst ‘away’, which just goes to show you that you can take the boy out of the blog, but not the blog out of the boy. Yeah, that sounds a bit pervy.

    I always get that third Bowie album from that period confused; I want to say it was Station to station, but I think it’s Lodger. As far as I’m concerned, both of them count..
    And Eno’s keyboards really make a lot of those songs. ‘Heroes’ unfortunately didn’t impress me altogether much, but the title track is phenomenal, and it’s mainly due to the synths in it. Good ol’ David Jones — well done, sir!

    And what I’ve written as far as words of thanks still falls short of properly expressing the appreciation that I have for everyone who wrote a kind word. Sometimes English can only get you so far, y’know?

    Take care you three, and be sure to give a special welcome to Eden from the pair of us. 😉

    rentell –
    It’s good to be back! It’s like I never left! After a fashion. 🙂

    Shi-chan and I checked out those pics you’d taken of Betty, Kukoki-chan, and Matilda — your photography is feckin’ phenomenal, mate! In all seriousness, the way you pose your lasses, combined with the lighting and whatnot, makes your pics look very Helmut Newton-esque. And my goodness, that ‘Double Doll feet’ photo.. obviously that one’s in heavy rotation with my wallpaper changer now. 🙂 Keep up the Good Work!

    O, when you get a chance, drop an Email to pulsedemon [at] gmail [dot] com, as I’ve something to ask you..

    Give the lasses smooches (and whatever else) from both of us!
