Kerrsday Thursday And Gig Countdown…

Got some prized memorabilia I want to share for Kerrsday Thursday. The pictures in this were available on Flickr for a time but the images inside are even better quality than I imagined – given it’s an amateur fanzine and the age of it now. I got it off eBay for under £5! Have been wanting a copy a good few years. So glad I finally got one.

I also got of copy of a Jackie magazine with His Kerrness as pin-up boy inside. And what a pin-up he is! DELICIOUS!

Lastly, we picked up a little battery operated light box for £1.50 yesterday and I have made it my Simple Minds gig countdown display!

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.
