After 5 nights in hospital I am sad to say the thing I missed most about the outside world was Wikipedia’s ‘On This Day’ section.
Just had an horrific flash back of when I rented Walt Disney’s Fantasia on VHS. I must have been about 5 and we rented it from Video King in Yardley at the Yew Tree. You could buy drugs from the front step of Video King and I am sure the subsequent storefronts carried on and have carried on this tradition. A mate of a mate asked me a few years back if I knew where Video King used to be in Yardley because he had to go pick up drugs from there. Anyway I remember the VHS being a really worn out tape so the picture was crap (you don’t get that on DVD’s kids) and I stopped watching it after 15 minutes because I was utterly horrified by the music and the creatures which appeared.
Classical music was not for me.
My name is Jonas
In the middle of the day,
When you drive home to your place,
From that job that makes you sleep bad to the thoughts that keep you awake,
Long after night has come to claim,
Any life that still remains,
In the corner of the frame that you put around her face.
Two pills just weren’t enough.
The alarm clocks going off,
But you’re not waking up,
This isn’t happening
Touch the hands of your glowing Christ.
Shiftless mouth of Judas, did you spit in his fucking face?
Why just live with your fucking faith.

We are no longer friends
All these years and all I needed to do...
- “dogs are humans too”
- “did we used to have wires going to australia before satellite phone calls?”
- “food has bad hair days too”
