Yes, I doubt you've heard of this one, although this album was originally released on Island Records at the same time the label handled better-known bands like Traffic and Fairport Convention. This was Dr. Strangely Strange's debut, Kip of the Serenes. It was a poor seller, but original copies now sell for US$100s (my copy is a "pirated" re-issue from the 90s, with the title misspelled on the label, and some of the back cover text cut off due to the poorly-reproduced, blurry art, but that was our only option - that or trading cassettes - back before you kids had Napster and YouTube ... and yes, get off my lawn while you're at it!).


The music would definitely be enjoyed by fans of the Incredible String Band, as they're more hippie/ethnic than Fairport Convention or Pentangle, lighter in attitude than Comus (no band was as dark as Comus!), but edgier than Steeleye Span or the Strawbs (although it could be argued it contains a few "Leprechaun" moments, lol). (And both Gary Moore and Al Stewart briefly guested with them later in their career.)


The album can be heard here:


Oh, and this outfit was particularly influenced by one of my Flickr friends ... can you guess who she is?

And people think the internet killed music. Ha. It was actually when people stopped playing music live and let machines do it.

The three wise monkeys (Japanese: 三猿, san'en or sanzaru, or 三匹の猿, sanbiki no saru, literally "three monkeys") are a pictorial maxim. Together they embody the proverbial principle to "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil". The three monkeys are Mizaru, covering his eyes, who sees no evil; Kikazaru, covering his ears, who hears no evil; and Iwazaru, covering his mouth, who speaks no evil. Sometimes there is a fourth monkey depicted with the three others; the last one, Shizaru, symbolizes the principle of "do no evil". He may be shown crossing his arms.

The older I get, the more I am able to identify and appropriately dismiss a bullshitter as soon as they reveal themselves to me.


See even when I was younger I was always able to mostly identify bullshit I think. But for some reason I would never take it one step further and just dismiss their imminent credibility. I always left the door a little open “just in case” I was wrong.


Today’s case in point: Florence.


In my 20’s, I dated this dumb ass chick for a few days that had this fucking stupid limp when she walked. We will just name her Florence for the sake of this story.


Now let me tell you, Florence could have been the hottest thing walking the planet (which she wasn’t), but with that retarded walk she had developed with her left leg? Anything that was mostly attractive about her mostly went out the window. Mind you I met her WITH the limp, so I am to blame here for having this limpy chick around.


So Hunchback gimp leg chick and I were driving in my Nissan Altima one day around Connecticut. I was thirsty, so I found a 7-Eleven. I left her in the car with the car running and music blaring.


Now understand, I never listened to the radio. Fuck, I still don’t. Polluting your ears with shit on the radio in the name of “listening to music” is the equivalent of boarding a US Airways flight just to catch the latest Hollywood blockbuster they are airing. Um, no. I listen to my own shit on CD, MP3 player, whatever in my car.


So I stop by this 7-Eleven leaving asshole half limping chicky in the car with whatever loser album I liked at the time. I believe it was Limp Bizkit. Don’t hate. I was there on the free Napster tour. You know I’m too cool for school.


Well I come out from the Sevvy and when I get back to the car, the fucking radio was playing. Realizing at the time of this writing that anything is an upgrade over Limp Bizkit, I probably should have thanked my irregular half legged short lived girlfriend. Not that I even cared THEN about something so trivial. But regardless it was unprecedented to hear the radio coming out of my car. So I casually went to Florence:


pimp: “Hey legs of steel Florence, what happened, you changed to the radio?”

Florence: “No”

pimp: (not mad mind you, just a little confused and amused at the same time) “Then where did my CD go?”

Florence: “I don’t know”

pimp: (more confused now than amused now) “Okay?”

Florence: “Did you get me anything to drink too?”

pimp: “if you walked normal, I probably would have let you come in with me to choose your own drink on me you cock legged bitch” (Okay I didn’t really say that, but should have).


Now understand that Florence changed from CD to radio. How do I know this? Because that is what MAKES SENSE.


Yes there is the possibility that in those 2 minutes I was gone someone came by and changed it for her while she was tending to her retarded leg. But that wouldn’t MAKE SENSE.


And as I did with all this kind of shit back in my 20’s, I wrote it off.


**********BIG MISTAKE**********


So what I’ve learned now is that I shouldn’t write inconsequential shit like this off that doesn’t make sense just because it’s meaningless. I’ve learned that if she is willing and able to bold faced lie about something so trifling, then she’s a liar up and down, including things that do "matter".


Sadly this experiment on trust, limping, and radio stations comes to an end here. I didn’t stick around long enough to see how much of a liar she actually was or if that wobbly swagger ever went away.


Fuck, maybe I’m just completely wrong and it’s the limp that led to the lying? Nullifying everything I just wrote and making me look like an asshole on top of it.


Oh well. At least I still have my fedora.

Braving the high seas up in Cat Chums' crow's nest sits the unlikely named but very cute little Jack Sparrow. Why Jack Sparrow? Well Blackbeard and Henry Morgan are hardly apt names for this little kit. My suggestions of Torrent, Napster and Somalian were sadly rejected.

Why the jovial mood, you may ask. Well I just photographed a family of swans in the middle of thetford Forest of all places, including facial portraits of the cygnets in dappled forest light! Excited! Should have something on here by the end of the week, plus another visit to CatChums is in order too :)

Was going through an old hard drive and came across some photos. This one is a picture of an iconic record store that was around for decades. They could get anything you'd request from around the world. But in 1999 a guy named Shawn Fanning came along with his peer to peer file sharing platform called Napster. That was a game changer. Sam's closed it's doors for good shortly after I took this shot.


Sam the Record Man - Yonge Street, Toronto

Yesterday, knowing I would be shooting at night I strung a hammock and took a nap here in the afternoon. This was a spot I found while exploring with my friend Danny. It will forever be known as napster point. We went back late last night and shot MW shots. Ran into my friend Andrew over at "the tree"... it was sort of crowded so Danny, Andrew and I went back to Napster point... hung out, and shot a few shots. Nothing special other than the expereince of sitting out enjoying dark skies with friends. And that doesn't suck.

and just to stay on of my favorite songs lately:

♫ ... And the heavens were rolling

Like a wheel on a track

And our sky was unfolding

And it'll never fold back

Sky blue and black... ♫

Make ya say WOW!


This was quite an experience. Never to be duplicated the same of course.... It's interesting. I've spoken with three different photographers who caught this particular amazing sunset. They remembered it and talked about it. It was something else. If anyone else got the sunset and the reflection I'd love to see it.


This photo is featured at my first photo exhibit at Highland Coffees, Baton Rouge, La.

Thank you everyone for the wonderful comments and favorites!!

Another one from Norah Head, Central Coast last week. Took this when the sunrise was at its peak. Great location to visit.

I was looking through the sunset photos and the old song by Leon Patillo "Praise Ye the Lord" kept going through my head, if you haven't heard it try looking at this image and listening to this song..



At the close of the day, I get down on my knees, and I thank the Lord, for all he's done for me.


Praise Ye the Lord, all I want to do is Praise Ye the Lord, He's been so good to me so let's praise Ye the Lord, lift Him up and Praise His name...

I don't know why, but this reminded me of those old comments you'd hear from someone older when a kid would complain about something.... or similar comments like-


"When I was a kid we didn’t have the Internet. If we wanted to know something, we had to go to the damn library and look it up ourselves, in the card catalog!!"


" There was no email!! We had to actually write somebody a letter – with a pen! Then you had to walk all the way across the street and put it in the mailbox, and it would take like a week to get there! Stamps were 10 cents!"


" Child Protective Services didn’t care if our parents beat us. As a matter of fact, the parents of all my friends also had permission to kick our ass! Nowhere was safe!"


"There were no MP3′s or Napsters or iTunes! If you wanted to steal music, you had to hitchhike to the record store and shoplift it yourself!"


"And our parents told us to stay outside and play… all day long. Oh, no, no electronics to soothe and comfort. And if you came back inside… you were doing chores!"


And many other fun / funny things.


Anyway, I noticed this in an antique store display and couldn't resist.
