A Blog for Today.
This is a blog for today, written today believe it or not.
Right now The Yardbirds are spinning.
Today needs a little back story first. So lets us go back in to the annals of time to September 23rd, 2014. I know it’s along ways back, but i need to do this.
So, at 18:40 i heard one of the girls at work talking about painters, she was also removing stock from shelves where i knew they wanted some painting done. I hadn’t heard anything about any painting. Painting usually means that i’m going to be at work late, yet i hadn’t heard a thing. Then the painters turn up…
I get on the phone and call my company, “Is there another guard on the way?” i ask, i mean i hadn’t heard a thing so maybe someone else was going to be here all night. They said no, why? I said because some painters just turned up…
Needless to say that my company has miss placed the eMail that was sent the day before requesting that a guard be there until mid-night. I wasn’t happy. An hour later i get a call form them saying that they’ve arranged cover for me, for today, so i can have the day off. I left work around 23:30 and arrived home about an hour later, i ate a few baguette pizzas and had a cuppa tea then fell asleep.
A day off. I’d like to say that this is the first time this sort of thing has happened, but i really can’t. Feels like this day off is in compensation for their collective incompetence. Great. I need a new job.
Anyway, i figured i wouldn’t waste the day so i woke up and watched The Wolverine on sky. It’ snot a great movie. It’s better then the first Wolverine movie i guess. But hey, it’s my day off, i can do what i like.
And now Jimi is whaling: Experience – Are You Experienced.
After that i started to work on an old short story i write, Door 18, part of my Corridor of my Subconscious series (The series is HERE and the short is there –> Door 18). Pretty much been working on this all day. It’s just gone 17:00.
But i have has company, in the form of;
- Creedence Clearwater Revival – The Concert.
- Miles Davis – Kind of Blue.
- Warpaint – Warpaint.
- Warpaint – The Fool.
- Neil Young – After the Gold Rush.
- The Yardbirds – Featuring Eric Clapton.
- Experience – Are You Experienced. (The Jimi Hendrix Experience. I call it Experience because that is what Jimi called the band)
And after i’m thinking i might put on Eric Clapton – Slowhand. I love listening to music on Vinyl.
The Corridor of my Subconscious is a series of 48 short stories. Hopefully horror. Each is different and follows a different protagonist. The antagonist is in the form of a Tar. I’m not exactly sure why i chose Tar. All i do know is, that Tar was the first thing that popped up into my head when i needed a bad guy. The Tar represents the darker part of ourselves. Each door is a gate way to a part of your psyche.
Now, i’ma go get another beer and start work on chapter two of my book. I also had a few sausage rolls. Nice.
