Caezar The News!

News of a Caezar gig towards the end of November was revealed today. Joe and JJ will be playing Saint Luke’s on November 23rd, with King Of Birds once again as support.

I couldn’t turn back round after two weeks to make their date in February but I’ll pull out all the stops to try and make November’s gig. Who knows? With any luck, might even be living up there by that time (I will continue to dream…though it feels like it slips further and further away).

Fingers crossed, by hook or by crook, I’ll make it…money, health, etc permitting (asterisk, asterisk). If I’m not up there and/or can’t make it, I’ll pray that Joe will have a hometown gig somewhere around Windsor way again.

Tickets go on sale on Friday. This time round, I think these will sell like hot cakes! Get in quick, peeps. That’s my advice! Find tickets HERE

So…I Cannae Ask To See Him?

What the hell did I do wrong, now? I was only trying to be light-hearted. Have a bit of fun. Is it “irrelevant” to ask to see a current pic of the lead singer of your fave band? Was it deemed rude? I didn’t swear. Any sense of innuendo was VERY THINLY LACED (he was the one who was topless in the pic I was referring to…the Jan 17th pic of him holding his Paddington bear mug. I wasn’t the one putting the product placement in).

There are some weird decisions of what gets deleted that takes place on SMO FB. I genuinely don’t mind…I just find it bloody confusing. I’ll post something that I think will last all of five mins up on the visitor wall before it gets taken down (and expect it to be deleted) – ie: my captioned pic of him doing his flat-on-his-back-from-knees-down thing that he does (gotta work out a more succinct name for that move!) and Derek Paterson looking on at the side of the stage bemused. Jim went ahead and turned that into a post on the main SMO page! No one was more stunned than me by that one…

Then another time I’ll post something that I think is pretty darn innocuous (like last night) – ie: could I please see a pic of you, Jim (thinly laced meaning of “I miss you and I just want to see you”) and THAT gets deleted???!??!

It would make sense if there was some kind of consistency with it. Like, “you cannae ask this, this and this”. I mean there are very OBVIOUS things that I would never post or ask, etc. It may not seem it to some, but I DO have a moral compass!

Anyway…sorry…I was just once again left quite miffed having wanted to just make a little lighthearted gesture that I was missing him.

Nae mind.

We Passed Upon The Stair

I was feeling very tired still this morning, so I slept-in. While I slept the extra hour or so, I fell into a dream.

I was going to a gig. And I was seeing David Bowie. The venue from the outside looked quite grand. One of those ornate old style theatres, you know. The stairwell was kind of circular. Plushly carpeted. The stairs were short stepped, so they seem to go on forever. I must have gone up about 3 or 4 levels.

As I neared the top, there was David…just sitting at the top of the stairs, with an acoustic guitar and someone from the entourage. He was just softly strumming away. Just kind of musically noodling. He was softly chatting away with his mate and they were having a giggle.

I stopped in my tracks. Even still to this day and in my dreams I was awestruck and utterly gobsmacked to find myself in his presence. He looked at me with an expression that read, “Why be so awestruck? I’m just a bloke.” David…you were NEVER “just a bloke”. Lol.

I never came face to face with him like this in real life. I only ever saw him play live once, and I will be forever thankful of that.

Well, he smiles that amazing smile of his to me and I stand their on the steps listening to him strum away. The noodling now also includes some unintelligible vocal sounds.

Just behind me, over my left shoulder, something grabs my attention. Scurrying along and stopping just behind me is a tiny little mouse with the biggest ears. Very soon after, little mousey is joined by a friend. And they are both just stood there, looking at us looking at them. The three of us humans all smiling at each other over how cute these two mice are.

And then I wake up! Just like that.

A very surreal dream. And I awoke so happy, yet so sad that it was just a dream, and the dawning realisation that David is still gone and the only way I’ll ever experience anything like that ever again is in my dreams.

The dream just encapsulated everything that was David. Surreal, gentle and beautiful.

30 Day Song Challenge – Day Twenty Nine

A song you remember from your childhood –

I chose this particular clip because it’s Countdown. I don’t really remember them performing on it, though I would have been watching Countdown at the time. Jim is just so fucking sexy and cool in this. And the manbag is just…a legend. Ah…”sherbet straws”. Lol

Love Song had been a long time favourite…even before mega fandom took hold.
