About Me

Live Your Life - So live your life so the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their views, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and of service to your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide. Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting or passing a stranger if in a lonely place. Show respect to all people, but grovel to none. When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies in yourself. Touch not the poisonous firewater that makes wise ones turn to fools and robs them of their visions. When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home. -Tecumseh

The Story behind Take A Walk On The Wild Side


The story behind the music, and what became of that grand circus of flamboyant characters...

I used to think (as did we all) that the song was about taking drugs, and had somehow slipped through the BBC censorship net. It was a huge surprise to discover what the song was *really* about!

This video was created for a Music Production course I did at STC all of a decade ago.

The course taught us how to be record producers, and was huge fun. At the end we were meant to hand in a ten thousand words essay, but I asked if I could instead submit an interactive CD-ROM. This was cutting edge technology at the time! I used Adobe Premiere and Macromedia Director. My PC was so slow back then it would only work at 12fps, so that's why some of this plays back a bit jumpy, but I think it gives it a nice retro look.

I thought I'd lost all the source files, so it was great to find them on an old hard drive, and have the opportunity to re-purpose it for the internet.

The video snippets were gathered from TV programmes I'd recorded to VHS over the years about Lou Reed and Andy Warhol. Particularly helpful were an excellent BBC Arena, and the 'Classic Albums' edition on Transformer.

Although it's presented here as a wide screen video, the way it originally worked was that when you inserted the CD-ROM the PC screen would go blank, and a series of video windows and menus would start to play, change shape, and move around the screen. I loved making this, particularly the fact that I wasn't bound by any traditional video 'frame' . Great fun. You MUST watch this full screen to appreciate the effect!

You think you are sick of it ... Try being a woman and having to put up with all the sexist crap

that is so interwoven with owning a gun that I can not separate the two any longer.

I am to the point where I believe that anti-gunners are simultaneously Male Chauvinist Pigs and this goes double when another Woman starts telling me what to do.

We are witnessing the disintegration of an "empire" - if we do not rebuild our infrastructure

and provide the people with the hope of a better tomorrow and the means with which to achieve that notion, expect to see more of the same. and Yes, due to our constitution guns will be involved. Had our constitution been written differently we would still see the same results but, by a different method.

People need jobs, health care, education and, less stress in their lives.

The weakest will crumble first.

We are fast becoming a nation of survival of the fittest and it is a sad thing to behold.

This is only my observation and opinion. YMMV.
