Just like home

The plumber confirmed a leak beneath the floor.
Sure enough, within months we had black mold and baby slugs on the walls.

Re: B-sides problem and a suggestion

I'm not an iAnything user, but aren't there other ways to get podcasts onto the devices? In the world of Android, for instance, there are numerous podcatching apps, and the one I use (DoggCatcher) has no problems with the B-Sides login. Apologies if I'm suggesting the impossible... I know Apple ( :t...

I know they're watching. Waiting, expectant, in the walls and ceiling.
I begin my performance, to rapturous applause.

Re: Countryside Walk

I did hear somewhere that far more methane is released into the atmosphere by cows belching than by industrial processes. So forget that Quorn Burger! If you want to do something about greenhouse gasses, chow down on a good ol' fashioned Quarter Pounder! Your logic appears flawed... if you want to ...

Re: Hole in one

This reminds me of an old 'Roger Melee, The man on The Telly' strip from Viz magazine, way back in the 80s. The frame showed a bunch of TV execs on a golf course, and one of them asks, "Hey, Where's Roger?" And a speech bubble emerges from a sand bunker saying, "Hold on! I'm having a dump!" Innocen...

Hello, This Is Joannie (1979, Paul Evans)

Listening to some unrelated music as I did some chores, this song popped unbidden into my head. The ending is a bit creepy, in good DC style.

Hole in one

Squatting in the sand, I clean up with handfuls of grass.
People will blame the wildlife.

The Curse of the Idol (Classic Dad's Army, BBC TV)

BBC TV's "Dad's Army" was a staple of my viewing as a boy, and this is a classic piece in which Private James Frazer (John Laurie) is in his element.

A Trouble Shared

It was like "The Day The Earth Stood Still" but without the aliens. Just a global realisation that we're totally fucked.

Tough times

In former times we fought wars over mineral resources.
Now we fight for fresh water, for dry land, and for our very lives.
