thanks for reading.

Hello reader, thanks for taking the time to scour these lines. It amazes me that people still catch up with my drivel, there may be a little kernel of entertainment to be gleaned here and there, a reference maybe, an anecdote - something. I notice I have a reader from Russia who is most consistent with his/her drop-ins, a handful from New Zealand, the odd American. I really do thank you all for clicking in. The purpose of this blog has drifted over the years. There's still 3 years to go on this particular site - if i am still penning tripe at that stage we'll set up another chapter. I have other blogs - earlier ones back when i performed and recorded prolifically - 'the crude decade' and a couple of others can be tracked down - there you'll read more in the way of commentary on music and reviews of live shows.
I live in Melbourne and work far too hard in a local factory - dealing with people displaying all manner of idiosyncracies. I guess in a way i am burnt out - the need to 'expose' or 'display' my music to the world has all but disappeared. Why? Because I simply have nothing to say musically at present - i strain to find any relevance in it all.
These blog posts are extracted from a place of disgust - a void - a feigned hatred for hypocrisy and inequality - an intoxicated realm lacking formal narrative, these lines are starved of meaning.
Much of what is penned is unconscious -  thoughtless. Much is half-hearted.
I enjoy being no-one. I read the primary texts of Vedanta, an ancient Indian philosophy.
I seemingly yearn for something - but know not what it is.
I regard myself as a nothing special, just another citizen minding me own business.
