Mirrors me often, is cruel when it can be, and has just made freshly pressed out of something called ‘frankly, my dear, no one gives a bleep’.  It is hard, dear reader, to believe that there are some people who are not playing a cruel game.

I’m reading Oscar Wilde’s ‘The Happy Prince and Other Tales’ and he doesn’t recognise, in this form of writing at least, that an ‘and’ should not start a sentence or follow a comma.  I have spent a lot of time trying to observe that law, when I have, but I like Oscar Wilde’s usage better.

I’ve been listening to Josh T Pearson, Last of the Country Gentlemen.  I first heard him sing ‘Sweetheart I Ain’t Your Christ’ on the Robert Elms Show, then later the same week on the Jools Holland Show.  Where it talks about trying to make him suck out some disease he can’t even begin to see, and teach him how to speak in the hope that it would break some curse, I thought a lot about Tommy Boyd and how I ‘related’ to him.  He could have written it for me but he didn’t, he wrote it about his own relationship.  It made me think so much about Tommy Boyd I even took down my page with his name as the title.

I think there are Christians who would be offended by the lyrics, as I am sometimes.  But it communicates pain and confusion so effectively I can’t be offended by it overall, when I listen.
