I may be a sporadic visitor and participant over the coming weeks. Times is tough as they say and circumstances require a little more than the very sketchy attention that I customarily pay to these sort of things. Hence evenings now are often a juggling act between spending time with g/f (been over 6 months now!) and cracking the whip to get her to work on her thesis (and that’s not a euphemism, I hasten to add) and trying to extrapolate myself from decades of financial buccaneering.

Besides which it has often been difficult to find proper inspiration, I don’t think I’ve been writing at the top of my game for a little while now it’s been a case of good paragraphs here and there strung together with mediocre bits. Last time I took stock if I recall correctly I returned with a little more vigour and energy.

I am still writing, often tidying up the large library of unpublished entries which will gradually see the light of day in their own time. I also have Thinker For Hire which is a place that I put up some of the old naive stuff I wrote nearly 10 years ago. One day I’ll corrolate it all and sub-edit it but for now it’s up there raw and naked. In addition I’m posting to that blog the parts of a manifesto series that I decided to do, it seemed appropriate for it to be there since it ties in with a re-visiting the sort of material I wrote in the 1990s. It’s an occasional series (as we speak only the first part has been written) and in no way replaces this blog which will come back to its former glory hopefully shortly.

I do have a load of reviews from all the gigs I went to over the preceeding 6 months and I will post them to here and Red Baron Reviews in due course. – [Update – this site is now defunct]

So don’t go anywhere, think of it as a chance to briefly get on with some of those things you need to get on with whilst I do the same. That does not exonerate you from writing comments and shit and if you happen to be the 200,000th visitor who is due in mid-late March then make yourself know to be feted with pretty lights and virtual confetti.

this is jimmy sunshine commenting on leah’s log-in while she is having a poo or something (don’t tell her i said that, she thinks i don’t know she has bodily functions).
keep blogging fella, i don’t comment much i know but i keep reading. and i hope you keep adding vital, poignant and well, slightly smug comments on my blog.


-Redbaron responds – It’s always nice to see you fella and I do enjoy leaving smug comments on your blog. Fear not tho’ I am not gone just busy and very very skint and this is affecting my ability to sit down and write very much with any fluidity. All things must pass tho’-

*Wishing that I could say that I was too busy to blog due to companionship from the opposite sex!*
It’s always fun to read our own thoughts from years past.

Have fun! I’ll be busy doing laundry, or something.

I assume/hope your blogging hiatus has not affected your TV watching and that you saw the mighty green army crushing the puny English defence on Saturday???
