Babe artwork: The plumbing

Monday 20 July 2015, 12.01am HKT


8.55pm local time, AC on so it’s 19°C (66°F)

JUST a few potato shots of how I crank out my ‘art’ (and things that pretend to be Art).

‘Crank’ being the operative word — ‘mixed media’ would be the preferred artistically pretentious description, but a helluva lot of in-between shortcuts and cheating might be a more realistic one. ‘Crap’ is perhaps more honest.

I’M not really one for naming anything that breathes at night, but it’ll do this time.

Yes, I know that sentence is ambiguous, — it’s NAMING things at night, not things that BREATHE at night, thankyouverymuch.

It’s English, c’mon.

How comfy is your family screwing you?

Monday 19 August 2013, 5.28am HKT


TOMORROW (19 Aug 2013) is the fifth anniversary of The Naked Listener’s Weblog on WordPress. Not more than half an hour ago, Life handed me something that most people in their right mind wouldn’t think of as a gift.

This broadcast is based on actual events.
