Alright, keep moving, nothing to see here. Give him some air. It’s alright, son, it’s just a scratch. Let me have a look. Whew, that’s a lot of blood. I’ve called an ambulance, they’ll be here soon and in the meantime, he said putting his headphones over my ears, just close your eyes and relax, listen to the angels,

“It’s nice to be a lunatic,” Ian Dury (1942-2000)

  1. Think I’d rather bleed to death…!

  2. haha, excellent piece of writing. The image flows as smoothly as water from a mountain into a cluttered fountain. excellent.
    and headphones, too! I just bought a noise cancellation set, what with all the non musical vehicular hooligans after my ears and all! I didn’t see if they had a certain pain-cancellation set too, though! 😉

  3. Ever been to the Florida Keys? Wonderful. Toes in the sand and a cold beer.

  4. The trick, Simonne, is to, as Ginga said, close your eyes.

  5. Aww, I like those shorts. Sorry, was in a daggy mood. We shall return to normal programming soon. There we go. All fixed now, sorry about that momentary lapse in taste. Hope this is more to your liking.

  6. haha. i’m not even going to click on the video out of fear of what i’ll hear.

  7. Aww, please Lissa, it’s only music.

  8. Reminds me of U2 and The Cars, I’m a big AC/DC fan myself when Bon Scott was with them, I just loved his vocals, wicked cool! The writing was an ironic play of sentence, very well dropped in to the video.

  9. Was there a different video on here earlier…or is it my imagination?

  10. Yes I changed it. This one fits the writing better, I think. Hello, F.G, Helloooo Tina,

  11. Po, you must be a scriptwriter, you cant help imagining short scenes…Your mind must be challenging cameras!

    (“Tragedy on the stage is no longer enough for me, I shall bring it into my own life.” A. Artaud)

  12. Oh that quote is a bit scarey. I hope that’s not what I’m doing. Have you a new and still more wonderful poem? Or more fantastical music? Let me see…

  13. No panic! I just recalled Antonin upon reading the quote from Ian Dury about being lunatic:)

    It amazes me how far “association” can take us…An endless game of connecting things where we dont need to make sense:)

  14. Ah yes, much better! Thanks 😉

  15. Yes, we can at least look now.

  16. You’re welcome. I shall try to remember, no daggy white men in shorts any more. Haha, Margarittaville is a lovely song, though. Maybe I can sneak it in through the backdoor. Oh that’s right I already did that, gotta a new tattoo, it’s a real beauty, a mexican cutie…

  17. The first time I saw Ian Dury, my mum was so angry that she ran across the room and switched the television off. From that moment I adored him, haha. Ian Dury was a true artist with a twinkle and a don’t give a damn cos I like it attitude. Kinda reminds me of someone, eh?

    (This might not travel across nations too well but I think you’ll get the gist 🙂 )

    Beautiful. Perfect.

  18. I forgot to mention compassionate


    and romantic…

    On second thoughts he might have been unique, haha!

  19. I think so. Absolutely unique, but I certainly appreciate the sideways glance. I shall check out these linkages. Wonderful, he was all those things and more, an entertainer as well. It is Ian Dury Wonderland, yayay.

  20. You twisted my arm… the only one to be banned, haha…

    This is a fine, fine tribute page to Ian Dury. R.I.P. me old mucker… 😦

  21. R.I.P. (all though with Ian around I doubt there is much peace, plenty of party though.) It sure is nice to run into another fan, Mary P., of the late great wondrous and miraculous, Ian D.
