“I find it kinda funny, I find it kinda sad, the dreams in which I’m dying are the best I ever had”
Another week in Buggery Ol’ Blighty, that’s another 7 days/168 hours/10,080 minutes/604,800 seconds of heartache, stress, bullshit and mindless madness on and around the urethra of Jolly Ol’ England.
I met some good people, literally dealt with shit, worked my ass off and did a great job. My reward for all this is to be moved on to some other crap that nobody else is able/willing to do. Interestingly, I don’t whine and complain like the Brits around me, but this doesn’t actually allow me any progress - it’s what is expected of foreigners. I worked on Thursday with a horrible cold/blocked sinuses and mild fever without saying a word about it. Finished at 2pm, then got a call at 3:15pm canceling me for next week, and instead being switched to an even shittier job next week in Lewes - which means £4.50 train fare each way - the equivalent of roughly $16.00 round trip, before I even make a dime. Fecking England. I’ve got a college education. About worth the paper it’s printed on, if that.
I have been a combat soldier, musician, artist, actor, engineer, scientist, shit I managed to put the corner of an 1890’s NYC tenement building into a loft on the Upper West Side, and design and build a shark tank into a penthouse on the Upper East Side. I designed & built a metal cross that when suspended with someone attached to it unfolded into an inverted pentagram in a flash of flame. I’ve done male dom S&M shows that attracted lesbian feminists. I’ve worked for one of the most infamous underground icons in NYC, and even took hundreds of thousands of dollars home for him to keep it safe until the banks opened Monday.
Of course I’ve done some stupid things as well, but even those were glorious in their own way. Inventing the Pythagorean Theorem (yeah, Pythagoras already did it), discovered the effects of gravity/relative motion on time (yeah, Einstein already did it), but then again I developed an 11 dimensional representation of the universe that doesn’t require string theory. Anyhoooo… none of that matters in Buggery Ol’ Blighty. I’ve accomplished much, and still have so much potential, yet I can’t seem to find my niche here.
So what will my show be about tonight? Your guess is as good as mine. I’ll be discussing Blighty, the places & people; the cool people I’ve met as well as the assholes. I won’t just be complaining, ‘cause that’s not my style, but I may be censoring myself a bit less than usual. In the midst of all this madness I’ll be playing great music from across genres and decades, as usual.
