No News Isn’t Always Good News…

Ah…you know what I was saying in my video(s) yesterday about being mildly gutted if my fan bit is not in the book…well…

Seemingly those who are in it have been receiving emails about it being confirmed that YES – they ARE in the book and that they can see their piece in the book before committing to buying it.

No such email has arrived in my Inbox as yet. I have a sinking feeling!

On top of that, there was something else I had been anticipating happening that didn’t eventuate either.

Today I feel very dejected AND rejected! I don’t need this two days before my birthday! I feel like I’m being kicked while I’m down!

And this was the main reason I grappled about even submitting anything because I KNEW that if I did and my bit didn’t get to be in the book – I’d be gutted. Better to have not bothered was my reckoning. I couldn’t be disappointed about it then. Save myself the heartache.

Silly, I know, but it was the reason behind not putting something in in the first place. Just all those things… I’ve had my five minutes, Jim’s sick to the eye teeth of me, the fans wish I would fuck off and die, I have no idea what to write about, I’m a johnny-come-lately with no real story to tell.

ANYWAY! You just have to keep on keeping on. You just have to keep holding your head up high and just…push on.

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS!

I was too good for the book! 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

As if.

Perhaps my email just hasn’t arrived yet? Lol. Yeah…

I know. It is what it is. Never mind. I’ll have all the rest of the lovely thing to enjoy. Signed photos. A lanyard that I should have got at Copenhagen on the soundcheck that couldn’t happen! Or at the meet and greets that didn’t take place. An old poster. The certificate of authenticity! Ticket stubs. The fridge magnet! The badge stickers. I wish one of those badge stickers had been the screenshot of Jim on Top Of The Pops in the white jaiket when they were on doing Promised You A Miracle. Lol – I’ve got to take all the small, petty things that make me happy!

MUSTN’T GRUMBLE…

Black 501’s?

Is that what he’s wearing in those Edinburgh photos? ….

And, this is one of the ones I am waiting on. Oh, you smouldering Adonis, you! Goddamn you, Kerr! You sex god! Stop being beautiful!!

I adore you! ❤️

Pissing In The Wind…

I love this band. I love them sssooo much and I really, really HATE criticising them or their management. And I know they’ll be working hard and doing what they can to reschedule dates – BUT – enough is enough now.

If you can’t confirm new dates, please at least reassure fans. Reassure them you ARE doing all you can to ensure new dates are on the way. SOMETHING. ANYTHING! It is better than nothing…which is what happens between confirmation of rescheduled dates.

I’ll leave it in the capable hands of this man. A fellow fan. One of many on the SMO visitor wall pleading for some news.

Before I hand it over to him…loyalty really does work both ways. We are all being quite patient and loyal. Always loyal. So, please return the favour! Just…BE HONEST – if all you can say is “we’re working on it, doing all we can to secure new dates and we’ll give you details as soon as we have them. In the meantime, please bear with us.” THAT MEANS SOMETHING and will help to put minds at ease.

You are more than happy to keep feeding us the info of tickets going on sale and where to buy them ENDLESSLY as a tour is announced and tickets go on sale. So, PLEASE! Think about doing the same for reassuring fans about new dates. I know you may not have them yet but…just talk to us! Keep the line of communication open instead of making people feel left in the dark!

Over to Jim…KEIR…
