"Earth’s distant orb appeared the smallest light that twinkles in the heaven; whilst round the chariot’s way innumerable systems rolled and countless spheres diffused an ever-varying glory. It was a sight of wonder: some were hornèd like the crescent moon; some shed a mild and silver beam like Hesperus o'er the western sea; some dashed athwart with trains of flame, like worlds to death and ruin driven; some shone like suns, and as the chariot passed, eclipsed all other light." From "Queen Mab" by Percy Bysshe Shelley (1813)

Sick Of Goodbyes

So poor Mark Linkous has died. We lost Jay Reatard recently too. And yet Simon bloody Cowell still lives and they want to take 6 Music from us too. There is nothing else to say.
Suggested listening: "Good Morning Spider" by Sparklehorse

  2. Hey Space Cadet...... Freedom of speech mean anything to you ?

  3. Sorry but I see the red mist forming in front of me when it comes to that particular individual. I’m all for freedom of speech oh dearest auntie of mine but each of us has our own breaking point. Mine is reached whenever it comes to that pestilential purveyor of mediocrity and mind numbing, soul crushing fakery with his distinctly unpleasant, powerfully distasteful and objectionable manor. As it was meant to be a short heartfelt blog about the tragic deaths of two massively talented musicians whose work meant so much to me and whose guitar picks that obnoxious individual isn’t fit to lick, I decided to remove any further mention of him. As the saying goes “the pen is mightier than the sword, under a benevolent dictator” and I am the dictator of this particular, albeit virtual, realm. I never said I was benevolent. Anyway, I hope you know that I love, value and respect you dearest and wonderful auntie of mine and I really do hope this won’t stop you leaving any more comments on my blogs as I genuinely want to know what you think about the nonsense I come up with here. xxx

  4. Oh my goodness Space Cadet !

    I think I have to apologise.....and FAST! I knew what you thought about "SC" which is why I was attempting to wind you up....and it seems that it worked. However, being the older adult here I should have been more respectful of your personal opinions, live and let live etc. What a laugh, eh? No? Oh.

    Of-course I shall continue to read your blog and comment where I can. Mind you,you were so sycophantic towards the end it made me wonder what, exactly, you were after. Could it be free tickets to the live recording of the X-Factor or Britain's Got Talent ? I think probably not.

    By the way, have you ever noticed that SC has the same initials as Space Cadet? I think I see a nickname looming.

    Fear not SC. No harm done....not in this direction anyway. xxxxxx
