The Hidden Mic “Trick”

I know I shouldn’t laugh..but just, holy fuck…this cracked me up and I need the laughs…and the reminder that – nobody’s perfect (esp. me) and that IT’S OKAY to be a fuck up…and as a good friend said to me…that, maybe I’m being too hard on myself.

Hard NOT to be hard on yourself when all you feel you do IS ENDLESSLY fuck up.

Thank you, Jim. Thank you for just…being the perfect accidental comedian 🙂 I adore you!

Happy Kerrsday Thursday, peeps 🙂

He’s So “Made Up”! – A Mini Kerrsday Thursday

I, just a few days ago, bought a bunch of clippings on eBay. Some things within I already had copies of (the whole NME December 4th, 1982 edition with Jim on the cover, taken by Anton Corbijn, for example). There are actually a number of good things…gig reviews, album and single reviews…some Belgian magazine articles, etc…but I primarily bought them for THIS!

If you have visited this blog regularly, you’ll know how much I have coveted this picture, and wanted it in colour. The only other colour copy I had seen of this was barely 2 x 3 inches in size. This one is approximately 8 x 10 inches. Oh…that make up! Look at him! Beautiful beastie he is! I mean…yeah, he’s alright. Lol

Ahem. Decorum, decorum.

Anyway, I am “made up” to have myself a colour copy of it.

It’s only just a snap of it on my iPad for now. I will take a proper scan later and upload…and will share some of the other clippings too. (Not many other pics, really…mostly just text.)

UPDATE: Proper scan now here…

Sadly no idea on photographer because it isn’t mentioned on the clipping. Wish I knew.



Needing Spark…

I’m trying to keep the site fresh and appealing (even though it *is* a personal blog, and Kerr rich/heavy).

I’m pretty broke at the mo. Spending is at a minimum. I can’t spend out to source rare material from magazines, etc. 

The art keeps going…but, well, there’s only so much SM themed art I can do…and I am worried that trying to do another 100 Simple Minds themed lyric pieces will be….too much (as much as it pains me to say that!).

I still have some “why I love” pieces to write up. 

Kerrsday Thursday is pretty much “no more” (see above for at least one reason).

I love the weekend whirliGIG concept…but it’s just once a week. And then there’s Minds Music Monday.

Jim is really quiet. No news is forthcoming. I’m assuming due to the date of the formation of the band, no album release is happening until November. Perhaps we only just have a few short weeks to wait before we start getting news and momentum will build up again in the next few weeks?

I really, REALLY hope so! The wait is now getting quite agonising.

*twiddles thumbs*

*taps fingers on tabletop*

I want to inject more LIFE into this site…band news in the form of album release and future tour details would REALLY help inject some life into the place.

In the meantime, if you guys have any ideas for the blog. Subjects you’d like to see, etc…gizza buzz!
