Thinking Positive.

I have an aneurysm in my brain. Apparently its been there since before I was born. How do they know that? I do not know. Makes no sense to me. Stan wrote about it here if you want to know more details.

I’ve decided not to worry about it – actually that’s not strictly true – I’ve decided to try and channel my worries and fears into my drawing.

The weird thing is that since I found out I’ve been dreaming like a crazy person – all kinds of strange strange things about my family and hospitals and nudity and strangest of all I dreamt I wrote a poem:

pie chart art
is from the heart
it’s sharp yet sweet
like lemon tart


I wrote it down in my dream and read it out like I didn’t understand it. I fucking don’t understand it, that’s why.

I also keep dreaming I’m in a wheelchair. Christ. I’d be an absolute cunt in a chair. I’d go fucking apeshit. With this in mind I drew a cartoon, Viz-style – I used to love Viz, back in the day when it was good. So anyway I drew this cartoon and I had a caption and I showed it to Stan and he said the caption was pants. So I got rid of the caption.

So now I’m going to make it a caption competition. I’ve just got to fiddle with it a bit first though. And then find some people to provide captions……

Meanwhile life goes on - I had a meeting today with a company who are making a documentary about Knights Templar and Cathars and other medieval claptrap which they want me to art direct. I think I’m going to do it. Why the fuck not eh? And against my better judgement I’ve agreed to let Stan move in with me fr a few months. We used to live together before and one day I had to punch him on the nose for eating all my oven chips. WITHOUT ASKING!

Fucker better be very careful this time round as I’m a lot less tolerant than I used to be.

Hey Keith, Interesting poem... I'm not sure what you mean by pie chart art, but I have a fair idea. I remember writing one down from a dream like that and taking it to my GCSE english teacher. I thought it was wonderful, he didn't - kind of puts you off. It was about a whale.

Although I know nothing of the situation save what you say, it must be good to have an old mate about the place. Even if he does fondle kittens and eat all your chips... Good luck and bring on the caption contest!

I've got no idea what I mean by pie chart art so I'd be interested to hear your theory....

English teachers can be very cruel.

Yeah he has his moments. no that's not fair. Yeah it really is good. Cheers, Dan.

2nd shot - well THAT fucking sucks. not much else to be said on that topic. Other than, you seem to have taken on the right attitude as any of us are only certain of the moment we're in I suppose. Keep creating.
