Missed

a slice of some of today's drawing
 Resolved my comic issue. Rewrote my script on Boxing Day. Breathed a sigh of relief... still need to draw it. Now spoon-feeding the same concept so it won't be missed. Possibly I've learnt some kind of lesson. ...probably.
how do I draw this?

What counts

Placing inspiration. Moments.

Alfred Kubin




Alfred and Hedwig Kubin

Missing Petr. I realise I am disappointed to not see him when plans were changed. We were looking through his Kubin books a month ago. There was a lovely catalogue image (from a current exhibition of Kubin's work in Munich) of Hedwig and Alfred Kubin.  


Somewhere recently, my decision to re-engage in the practical aspect of this 'place' here, I fell short of documenting the 'mountainous' journey I've been on pertaining to writing a script, developing characters and then trying to deliver a concept by utilising both. Failing, not miserably but failing none the less, I've let it go for now. Becoming a slave to an emerging comic is actually very nice, but since testing the 'dialogue' aspect on Froni and having the idea fall completely short of the mark I have concluded that this comic is also ...utter shite.


some rusty sketches for the comic














Well. It's okay I suppose. Just might take me a year to get it right. I did sneeze out a short story the other day. The size of a smile. It will probably never see the light of day. Bleak but makes me laugh - which probably you shouldn't do at your own ...blather.









Jiri Kolar



 Guitar solo on this Beach House track is nice. Soft.



I can't squeeze in any more, other than that my post title is inspired by Borges.
I'm not usually feathering inspiration 'tufts' left, right and centre. Just today. Three minutes to midnight.
Well I've placed it. Borges, hats off to you.

Mash, killing songs and being killed softly (by Thom Yorke and his horror songs)

mash. I tried forcing some lyrics into several mixtures of melodies a few weeks back, mashed them together. Then spent a few weeks listening back, feeling relieved that I'd found some life for said words. Somewhat similar in tone to what I was aiming for earlier in the year when I managed to write about four ...reasonable songs. I'm so limited for actual singing time that I couldn't quite come up with decent melodies to carry the lyrics. Still. I'm connected to the latest song, trying to unmash it. De-mash.

killing songs. Most written last year will be killed. They served their purpose, to get me into writing again, and have now officially been coined as utter shite, thus marked for death row. I may, as a last dash, transcribe them into some Dreampop (ha! so not capable of that right now) so as to extend their existence somewhat. Only with lyrics blurred under a bed of milky-strawberry-Quick noise. Can I do that? ...e-bow

A few killer-recently-released-songs. They've taken me away and I can't get back down. Thanks for that Thom.


🅟 Met with Petr on Sunday. He told me about a book "The Future of Nostalgia"

🅑 Bruce wants me to draw a comic.

See you at the movies J Mascis!
Neat lyrics.

Drool, slouch and sway.



Brian Jonestown Massacre / Anemone (Unofficial Video)





I have posted this song before, but I’ve actually not listened to it for several months. It still pulls me in. Makes me drool, slouch and sway.



Holy Holy release new songs tomorrow and DMAs have put up stems for “The End” to be remixed. I’d love to, but never have. Have some ideas... I might just wallow in the naked vocal track though - such a voice!
