Titles start from here

Aaaaah, that's where it's been hiding, I've found it. Henceforth, I shall try to use as much sub-editor's skill as I can muster in order to give some form of structure to my posts. Also, I do believe, having a title will force me to stick to some kind of topic, instead of wafting all over the place like a high on light, debilitated moth.

This was meant to be a bellyache about Highveld Stereo and SA radio in general; however that blog shall follow sometime, as will the James Joyce one. As you will have noticed I now have a picture up. You will no doubt imagine my surprise when I opened up my email and found that a rather reticent (and anon) reader had emailed me this picture. As a gesture of graciousness I've put it up.

I have loads of images on my computer, as an art aficionado and as a photographer, net addict and Goth/allthingscult/vampire archivist of note. However I could not find something that would quite fit here. I mean, I might seriously offend some Blaaaaahnian with all my bloody (and I mean this literally) images. There's not many people who'd like to see a syringe shoved into a tongue or blood running out of a vampiric mouth or a fallen angel with rotted wings, skin, and bleeding eyes.(If there are, drop me a line, most of those pictures have stories).

So now, the anon email-er has asked me to consider this picture because he/she feels that it would greatly suit my nature and the nature of my writing. Anon email-er has also provided me with general thoughts on this blog but, alas, wishes to remain anon.

As I type this, I start to think I might just have a stalker on my hands....

I do love this picture- a black, dead rose bleeding from one of its thorns- a neo-Gothic memorial to the Romantics.... It really does so appeal to the Vampyre in me. So it shall stay up for a while methinks, until everyone else is strong enough for bleeding tongues and eyes:p or I feel evil enough to scare the Blaaaaahness outta any Blaaaaahnians visiting here:D.

Thank you again for the picture and the comments Mr/Ms. Anon.

Nice pic. I'm sure it could have a million stories behind it, which makes me ask about your offer for the pics... I am interested (just like Saaleha above...) Please send with stories to keep my mind from dying of the conformist boredom that is work (yech!).

anyway. I have pics to, will send.
have fun.


P.S. I'm consolidating blogs at the moment (killing off the schizo's) pls check The Front Line for the main stuff occupying (pun) my mind.
