Drawing of Kurt the week he died -second year at university living in a shitty boxroom - I drew this on wallpaper ,
I'm aware of this "Montage of Heck" (strange title ) is out there -I've yet to see it -theres a version on youtube -seems sludgy and at wrong speed so won't bother with that-best wait for it to come out on DVD (had same attitude about True Testimonial-but that never came out properly-but I doubt this will be the case here )so here's a few clips- starting with vid for Serve the Servants- possibly the most autobiographical song Kurt penned
"Bored and Old " at 27? ...you're a kid ffs , wish I saw it that way at the time when I hit 27 too but my hair was jumping off my scalp shit like that aint meant to happen to me in my 20's so for a long time resented everything too ,but that was about insecurity -rather than been hooked on a killer drug -in the end problems no matter small or big are usually a product of the mind - solutions well they're simpler than you may think -it's a mattter of perspective and outlook .I'd like to think I'm still a kid I as figured growing ups a falsehood it's kidding yourself to fit in -it's a cop out- I think of Kurt as a bit of a innocent, with an amazing gift it's no wonder that final record is called In Utero.. If he could believe in himself and his abilities it defeats the facile everytime - it's all bollocks yet the media pressure in Kurts case must of been so great that makes you want to disappear - I'm anti fame because of what happened to Kurt -I look at fame as part of a big machine that helps commerce and big brother widen it's eyes -I prefer the idea of creating the art you wanted to make in the first place and to leave that behind as a legacy - and not get hounded for it -thats why in this day and age of self promotion and social networking confuses the hell out of me,theres no point competing -just need to get on with own thing as it's an extension of yourself which may outlive you if it's good enough . It saddens me that there is so little of Kurts music as life was so short - but it's the quality rather than quanitity I guess in this case... it's heartbreaking like I say -he was one of us...
I'll post a few clips from " Montage of Heck".. Surely Kurts mums as old as mine .. but she looks great- that said she may of had him young.
That's who you leave behind if you join the "Stupid Club" the person who bought you into the world -always think of your Mum I say no substance no matter how powerful can ever replace their love (in most cases anyhow.)
so it's a mugs game -met junkies they're like holes, selfish to the core -never wanna be like that have a friend who quit the junk bought up family had a near enough normal life and carrer but then came a huge alcohol addiction and it wrecked everything -like I say death drugs they can get you even years after -horrible but true.Elvis Cooper lol :) .. they gotta a good one in the end -mind you there wasa sixties english psychedelic band with same monicker.
I'm not sure why they need to these trailers twice maybe they want more hits as its double the length- But I will give this a look when its out on DVD feel like I grew up with Nirvana used to cover School and D7 (The Wipers song they did on Peel ) as well as Teen Spirit in rehearshals(guitarist used to try and teach me the triad chords.. never got far with guitar lol ) when Nevermind came out -it really energised by what was happening - naturally I miss those days and young Kurt,

Not as good as last weeks- at least thats how I see it -these random freakouts can be a bit hit and miss -seem to do these better if I'm a bit mashed rather than super sobre I suspose -minds more freed out although some very strange effects and colours going on in these -
"Back to Jackson" -Lee and Nancy and Jackson Pollock (now that would be a bizzare love triangle)I know it's a Johnny Cash song but had the Lee and Nancy version going on in my head. ..-"Deviate" as it began to look a bit like an evil demonic creature so I went with that -and "Trapped" as a random Admiral Ackbar head appeared as if trapped in hell (I warp and twist these images into shape ) the Admiral had to stay .- bit concerned these are not random enough though lol.
Whatta guy -would be handy to have him around but I do hate it when they voice mon calamari all wrong (like in The Clone Wars for example)-they all sound like Churchill as far as I'm concerned ... more Ackbar

A crucial player in the development of comics..

Don't usually talk about these happy accidents -(well sometimes they turn out as that.) I'm happy with at least three of these apart from one or two .
I was thinking about how my celtic descendents and how they worshiped a fire god by the name of Aohd -where my own surname derives from-wanted to learn more about his mythology -turns out he was turned into a swan for 900 years -so first pic subconciously reflects that old irish mythology -I stop the images when I feel they've hit their peak - pity I didn't learn this little gem of a story at an English primary school.
I reckon christians messed with the story -their are still swans out there with the gift of the craic lol.
Kinda Liquorice influenced picture 3.
What's Angus Deyton On?..
Final pictures title comes from a line in Blade Runner .. ..liked how this pic turned out so needed a upbeat title.

Bout time I put these up again -a new page which took an age -all pages subject to updating -I needed to thrash this one out in order to get back in swing of things-but thrashing turned into sludge got burdened down with other duties but hopefully my own style dictate sand no elses does next page will be easier
Had to get PP inti the party scene another Legend. Seeing as this is a ttype of bible for the disillusioned made sense to cast Peter Sellers asDoctor Rajev loosely based on this fella I'd we're all like him.You gotta make u,se of Sellers he may turn up in other roles as story progresses The Song that Inspired this story. But Liz2's right though record speaks for itself
