sweaty john & morroco.

June 28, 2006

A couple of pictures have been added. These are an image from the Majorelle garden in Marrakesh, and the 180-metre waterfall at Cascades d’Ouzoud, three hours drive from Marrakesh.
My friend, Fatboy, and myself visited Morrocco in late 2005 and spent time at Ouzoud, chilling, sleeping in a berber tent and chatting to a wise man from the nearby Sahara. We stayed at a campsite near the ‘falls, called Camping La Pinard. It was immensely, immensely cool. Pictures can be seen here.
Also added is a short story, ‘Sweaty John’ written years ago at university whilst under the influence. I haven’t re-read it yet, but I have yet to upload additional stories, so I think it should go up! It’s posted under the writing & stories section- here.
My good friend, Shandy T. McDonald assisted me, I vaguely remember(!). He’s a top bloke, but he does insist that he’s Scottish, when he was born in Reading.

Also some thoughts on a Tool concert, 14.06.200, at Hammersmith Apollo.


short story added.

Not sure when (and if!) people will read this as I'm not sure when the site will go live properly. Anyway, a short story has been added on the writings/short stories section:

"it all came down to this"

Here's a brief snippet, click the link to read the story.




"I stepped into the shower and turned on the taps, allowing the water to cascade through my hair and over my body. I stood for what seemed like an age and again, felt the tears welling up in me. I collapsed to the shower floor and heaved, crying, my tears mixing with the clean water spraying down upon me. I vomited and rose up to my knees.
And then I thought, fuck it, and I felt it.
For only the second time, I felt it.
I hadn’t been able to since I found it.
And it was still there."
