This is true.
I heard this line whilst listening to Gym Class Heroes song. And it
popped into my head that this is true. Well to me anyways, no
matter how fragile I may or may not feel people in general will
not have a clue because I rarely let people see that side to me.
The last time I can remember it happening was many
years ago. And I doubt it will be happening any time
soon, but, this doesn’t stop me being the person that’s
there when things go wrong.
I have seen the ‘fragile side’ shall we say of quite a few of the people
that I know and the strange thing is that I know for a fact that if
something went majorly for me, I would probably lie and say that
all is fine and devote some time to sorting it out on my own.
But hey, it stops people worrying about me, which is
what I like, I hate when people worry about me
because I always feel like they have better things to
be doing with there time.
I’m sure that one day I’ll grow out of this and allow myself
to be fragile with someone. But therein lies the rub, because
the moment I let myself enter that world of personal fragility
I will probably open my life to this person, everything that I
had always lied about, all the anxieties that I had ever had.
And that I’m sure I could never do.
Oh and the Gym Class Heroes song is ‘Shoot Down
The Stars’. It’s a good song, give it a listen.

Although my love for music is
well known and documented
[somewhere or other], there are
only a few songs that take me.
That was a strange way to describe
it, I’ll try again, there only seem to
be a few songs that [whilst I’m
listening to them] I can close my
eyes and forget whatever is
happening no matter how drastic
it seems at the time.
Some songs make me thing of better
days, some of brighter tomorrows.
The majority though, seem to be linked
to a particular time or person [or feeling
for/to that person].
But I do have one or two songs
that when I listen to them take
me nowhere at all.
I become completely at ease and there
is only the music.
I urge you to listen to this song, with
earphones and and with your eyes closed.
[when I listen to this song all is
considered and at the same time I
don’t think about anything]
[kinda doesn’t make any sense]

[above: this photo was achieved by my lack of normal sleep. this was
taken at about four in the morning, i walked into the sitting room
and sat down, and before I switched the telelvision on I saw the
window and ran to the bedroom to grab my camera. And using the
glow of a street lamp to create the effect of sunrise as it shone
behind some plants in the window]

[above: as I was walking back home one day I saw a huge plume of
smoke in the background and I had my camera on me and decided to
investigate. As I ran down the hill to see what was going on, I heard
a siren of a firetruck. As I turned around, I went to take the shot and
then decided to unfocus and this led to the image above, which is far
more intersting than the photo I amost took] [The firemen were
alright with me taking pictures and were quite a laugh]

[above: this photograph was taken at a gig I went to some time ago,
the person in this photograph is a friend of mine called Mark. Because
I have photographed alot of gigs I find that I get bored quite easily.
Not with the music, but the photographs that I’m taking so after a
while it no longer becomes about capturing an image of the musician,
but getting the image itself]

On Sunday, not only did [Little
Green Book] have its first [sort
of] gig. But on the myspace we
broke a thousand plays.
Something, which,[as well as the
gig] I didn’t honestly think that
Like I believe I said on the night
of the gig;
“I don’t think it was ever meant
to get this far”
So the gig was on Sunday and
although I was nervous that
completely went away. Really.
After work Andrew dropped me home
[thanks mate] and as I got in I realised
my lil bro wasn’t indoors but has left
behind the jeans he had bought for me.
[they cost all of £3, but there not that
I also saw the setlist that my lil bro
had been working on, I say set list.
It was more a list of songs that we
should have done [in no particular
order]. He then came home and we
left to get on the train.
And because I didn’t actually know
the words to half my own songs I
spent the train ride writing down
We met up with Andrew outside Maze
Hill Station and made our way to the
pub. When we got to the Vanburgh
[pub in Greenwich] there was a guy sound
checking and he was actually all right.
The night turned out to be [as described
by the promoter] a paid rehearsal, but
hey, I got a fun time, a jokes gig and
a bit of money. Hopefully the seven
people who were there enjoyed it.
[photos will be on this blog before
and i would like to say thank you
to Andrew for the photography]
[oh and by the way, I wear size
