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!

A Kerrsday Thursday Day?

I’m kinda missing doing the old “Kerrsday Thursday”. Like I don’t make this blog Jim Kerr centric enough! Lol. And…I just can’t think of a theme…nor do I have much of a source of new and/or previously unseen/unshared pics of him.

I’ll just use the day to try and make some lyric designs. After PYAM I stopped. It was like I felt it couldn’t be topped, I just loved it so. But if I have ANY chance of getting near all SM songs having a lyric piece done by November…I have to ramp back up to daily! I may have given myself an impossible task because the one thing I have learned this year with the art is DEFINITELY NOT TO RUSH IT. That’s when the self-doubt takes hold and…the “failure” begins. I need to find that balance of being…recurrent yet…reserved. To not rush it, but let it come to me…but that is hard when you feel time-pressed or have deadlines. I suppose I can only see how far I get. 

Time…as always…is of the essence! 

But I do miss the silly side of the blog at times. (“The silly side is STILL ever-present”, I am sure you are saying, dear reader. Lol) The gif-making…the even MORE OVERT ogling. The inner Frankie Howerd being let loose. And speaking of such…I shall leave you with this. This kiosk is at Luton Airport and…it just makes me giggle. The name of it is PRICELESS! In my head I am always retorting, “I do. I really do.” Oh, but it’s been SSSOO long since I had one, I wouldn’t know what to do with it! Lol. I wouldn’t mind being put in the position of trying though…(heaven help me!)
