i have a dream…

January 2, 2007

Let us not wallow in the valley of despair, I say to you today, my friends.

And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in my head.

red zebra

I have a dream that one day a group will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “i see ma’ bebe, well she’s so fine.”

I have a dream that one day on the dancefloor of London town, the offspring of band members and groupies will be able to sit down together at the table of red zebra.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Essex, a state sweltering with the heat of binge drinking, sweltering with the heat of cheap sex, will be transformed into an oasis of beautiful music and animal noises.

I have a dream that my three little monkeys will one day appear on a stage where they will not be judged by the smell of their bodies but by the content of their songs.

I have a dream today…  an evening with red zebra + friends.

This is our hope, and this is our faith that I go back to the underworld with.

red zebra. x.

P.S. not that I’m trying to devalue what ol’ MLK was saying.

new year, same stuff.

January 2, 2007

Happy New Year and all that malarky to anyone who reads. The ego within me wants to point out that my New Year’s resolution is to be more productive. Considering I haven’t posted since before Christmas, and actually missed having a January 1 post, I would say it’s already not going well. However, productivity is not so defined, so I’ll suppose I’m the only one who will know. One thing I definitely want to do, is start my novel all over again, afresh, this year, and hope it goes better.  I also want to finally put up all of a month in maroc – my novella on Morocco. Again, here’s hoping.

But I would like to put one thing on record (so I can look back on this late in the year) that this year, 2007 (how weird), I’m hoping to finally organise inadvisable? – an evening with red zebra + friends, at a venue yet to be decided, on a date yet to be decided, with bands… again… yet to be decided. It will be a Christmas spectacular, at a hired venue, with hopefully some of our good friends…

But who are red zebra? Why is there no music from them on this page?

Why Sir, that is because I’m lazy. One day. Next post…
