We were always aware when we were children...

Its nice sometimes to look back at memories that can bring a smile on the darkest of days. when we reach the age that life starts taking from us we have nothing but memories to tide us over. however thats not the real thing i want to talk about today or rather whenever it is you wonderful followers of mine will be reading this.

Anyway so yeah, recently I entered a poetry competition just for a laugh really but I realised once I entered- "oh god, if I get through what the hell am I going to do next? This poem that is about as entertaining as a mature conversation might be accepted, if that happens how am I going to perform that blooding thing." Then it dawned on me, if I perform it get the audience involved. make them actively part of the performance. I'm used to performing on stage as I used to do a wee bit of stand up and comedy sketches amongst numerous musicals that we did. And before anyone asks, yes as every theatre group does we did 'West Side Story' and I suffered injuries during the shows run. So yeah the performing infront of a crowd but how to do that requires a new brain wave. looking at the pictures and footage from last years competition no-one seemed to try anything like this. so maybe it could be slightly original to try it. hmm who knows. i'm just getting ahead of myself as the competition is still open for entry. I'm sometimes too eager. So yeah but i'll give you the website to have a look at and enter if you wish. try it and see what happens. like me.

Anyway so i'm going to make a dash now. got dates to keep haha. yeah thats not very likely. oh yeah one more thing, i'm making video blogs or in the process of making the first. so i'll post them. i think its a good idea just to share more stuff with people. the footage is basically of my adventures this month and stuff. so we shall speak soon. oh yeah and could you all check out this young ladies music. she does covers mainly but she is very good.

enjoy ladies and jellybeans. i'm going to demonstrate my super atheltic skills now.

As we stare at explosions in the sky, we take first deep breath after the coma

Its been an interesting two weeks as we linger around parks and pubs waiting to fully understand our decisions in life and the decisions that effect us. I can only describe it as been comatized until a massive shock wave ripples through our world waking us from our slumber. I'm not gonna babble on in this metaphorical state much longer, in fact i'll get to the point. At a recent gathering of some of my close friends in a wood where we go to have camp fires etc, we call it the cove. two major bombshells have been dropped. first is that my closet friend grace is moving away to scotland due to her fathers new job, and secondly that I myself am probably moving from the city to the countryside. I've suspected the move for a while as my rents have been endlessly looking at properties. the fact of the matter is that i'm not too fond of the idea. i'm losing one close friend in mere days and soon, i'm going to be movin away from others. maybe its time to lapse back into the comatized state for security.

Away on to other blog news and such business. the most recent update is that uni year 2 has been passed with success. therefore making my feel some cheer in the gloomy days that are coming to pass. man i do sound like a manic depressive here. oh well. character designs for the comic are coming along nicely and i've titled the first two issues

Issue #1 is titled - The Only Moment We Were Alone Under The Star
Issue #2 is titled - Have You Passed Through This Cold Earth To Uncover Me?
Issue #3 is currenty titled - Voices From My Home Echo In My Mind
and Issue #4 is currently titled - In The Nighttime Rain She Said "We Meet Again At The Fall Of The Spring Rain Drowned In The Cherry Blossoms"

So thats all I have got for you people at the moment. The song for this post is by Michael Rice and is called We are not made of glass. he's an unsigned artist so don't expect to find loads of hits on him. youtube him though, his song is on there.
