Via very cool cat Jamie, this version of Cohen’s Hallalujah is great. Performed impromptu by comedian Tim Minchin with Geraldine Quinn at a wine bar during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Looks like they had fun. Tim really needs to do something with that hair. I’m jealous you know, I don’t have any hair to do anything with.
BTW, isn’t Gerry just tasty?
Okay, not all my poems are dark, brooding or even from the 80s. Honest.
This one is a bit personal, but then again that’s the nature of poetry. This was probably around 1992 maybe 93. I think you’ll get who the sentiment is for.

A few week’s ago I posted a poem that was based on Suzanne Vega’s “Luka” entitled “Luka II”. This is a follow up to that poem. The rhyming is a bit forced, but I think it’s just as good as the prior poem, though the rhythm is different. Not much more to say about that.

Wow, slow week for the blog, yet here I am again. It’s Throwback Thursday. Where I dig out a putrid poem (or writing) of my past. Last week I posted “Nemesis” which I’ve always been proud of. I said it was written around 1995, I think maybe 1993 because I found a companion piece. And a piece it is. It’s alright. It uses large words. I guess I had to prove something. I was tempted to edit it a bit, but here it is in all it’s gory … um … glory.

I’ve been throwing you a lot of poetry lately, and it’s pretty good shit. It could be worse, you could be buying it from the streets. Take a lesson from my friends Arj and Poopy. They’ll set you straight.
BTW, watch this video to the end. You won’t regret it.
Wow. So I missed last week’s Throwback Thursday. Fear not, the well hasn’t dried up. No my wife was travelling and things were exactly smooth going, so I was a bit worried and distracted. So to the 2 of you that look forward to these throwbacks to my youth in writing, I apologize.
This week’s poem is a little more recent than the gloomy 80s poems I’d been posting. It came from the 90s. I’m guessing this was probably written about 1995. What kind of poem it is, I don’t know. But with the popularity of the Twilight and Sookie Stackhouse books I thought I’d let this one out into the light again.

Not really much to say about this. It’s just cool. I don’t know if they used a real person for the movements and CG’d the robot, but it’d damn fluid movement. I love a creative ad. And if I ever loose my legs, I want the ones the robot has.
Since Shaun of the Dead I’ve been waiting for another really good Zombie comedy. I heard about Fido a couple years back but never found a copy to watch. Zombieland however is a big budget comedy with Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg. Looks like a romp.
Plot: Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) has made a habit of running from what scares him. Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) doesnt have fears. If he did, hed kick their ever-living ass. In a world overrun by zombies, these two are perfectly evolved survivors. But now, theyre about to stare down the most terrifying prospect of all: each other.
