on a chess board at any point any piece can in turn move in accord with the rules of the game. in that sense there are things that can be predicted or anticipated. there are also moves that are more or less probable. however, after a move, the board has changed and the perspective is different. all predictions, probabilities and possibilities are affected and must be re-evaluated.



seems to be a trend in my understanding; the more curvy, sensuous, thin and attractive the women come, the less they can dance, in fact the less they seem to be able to move at all.

on my walk home i felt quite absolute about this, that i couldn't be with a woman that couldn't move herself to music. then i thought, there isn't anything that any person cannot learn or unlearn.

tension, rigidity and stress exist in most peoples bodies in some measure. think and put your thoughts and feelings around your body. anywhere you and your body are not completely relaxed, change this. the softer and more relaxed you and your body are, the longer you will live and the happier you will be.

Have you got back after a few beers poured yourself a glass of tap water, drank some and thought
"ahhh i'll take the hangover, cos this water is worse"
Have you been on the underground with two different people standing on your feet with the sound of the train on the tracks so loud it feels like being the victim in a horror film?
Have i got anything less insightful to say about London that hasn't been said so many times by Northern English people that it misses the point more than a space hopper on a bouncy castle?
yes i do:
one thing travelling does do is broaden your context of thought. One thing that London is, is interesting, very very interesting. i am here for a reason other than passing through or as a tourist. while there are things i would love to dislike about this city it's the same issues that exist in many other large cities in varying degrees in some shape or form.
i think the important thing is to get over oneself and focus on what London has to offer. what it has are people, things, ideas and places that are truly unique and fascinating, set in a seemingly infinite diversity of ethnicity, culture and probability of possiblity.

i would disagree with the meaning in the proverb: "variety is the spice of life"
i believe:
"variety is as important to the mind as breathing is to the body"

i calmed myself down, but i just couldnt help it

i pointed and yelled


it didn't say very much, Jellyfish are pretty quiet


today i met an angel. i asked myself how i knew this. Today i know i met an angel because she was too beautiful to be a woman, too beautiful to be from this world.

A defining characteristic about human beings is their ability to endure suffering. if happiness is a state of mind then it figures the same is true for misery. the more i learn the greater the suggestion that spirit is the most important factor in all forms of our health and well being. some things weaken spirit and should be avoided. if they happen don't waste your energy with worry or regret. you may have forgotten how epic this life is that you live. once in a while take the time to remind yourself. self doubt is the greatest weakness of man and strength the highest virtue. it is strength that makes all other values possible.

Having stopped i'm quickly flanked to the left and right by two rather large unfriendly looking gentlemen,
"Why are you running?"
such a question would be strange in any normal high street but this is far from that. I'm standing in a ex military base called Christiania in the Danish capital city Copenhagen. The base was occupied 35 years ago and has since then established it's own independent community with its own rules. On the main street shops sell many varieties of wares and large mean looking blokes surround burning oil drum fires selling marijuana enforcing their own rules and regulations. Unbeknown to me (who had forgotten a skateboard) there is no running permitted in the street to avoid gun shootouts between rival gangs. In the cafe we ate organic vegan food then visited a bar and the free skatepark, a rather large and challenging double bowl.
A weekend in Copenhagen was a great experience. For me the city seemed mysterious, with a reserved but powerful feeling, inoffensive architecture, incredible food with vibrant arts and culture. i'll take another opportunity to thank my hosts until we meet again...

Chocolate cake

I think i've discovered the mistake in Sainsburys price reduction logic. it came to me while staring at stale cakes reduced to £3. it seems the supermarket reduces the items based on their original price, rather than pricing them based on their actual worth (which in the case of a stale cake would be about 50p) the fact it used to be worth a lot more money is irrelevant.

i am opposed to this approach for two reasons: firstly i'm a tight Yorkshire man and here in Yorkshire i'm definitely not alone. i'm certainly not stupid enough to pay £3 for a stale cake, so the cakes that would be perfectly edible do not get eaten because they're priced far too high. this leads to the second reason that the cakes then get taken from the shelf and thrown in the bin. old food used to be given to the homeless but UK health and safety regulations put an end to that.

so the food gets wasted. wasting food really is a disgusting thing to do. the 'freegans' of the world (persons who liberate out of date food from food retail refuse bins) could then acquire this chocolate cake from the bin when it's thrown out at the close of the business day, except the bins are now padlocked because of health and safety reasons. it seems someone ate food out of a bin and successfully sued someone because they became ill. perhaps we should grill the lawyers and health and safety officers and then eat them. after that, if somebody gets sick precious little will happen.

in 2010 i think that some people have decided not to accept their inevitable death. they buy life insurance, wear 'anti-ageing' skin creams, they enforce rules and regulations to ensure that people won't get hurt through whatever obtuse or irrational reason. they pay for protection for their possessions, shopkeepers used to pay the mafias, now everyone pays the insurance companies. all these issues aside, none of this will avoid the unavoidable fact that when the time comes, that's it. it's all over. fully comprehensive gerbil insurance ain't guna keep your heart beating.

all this may come as a depressing thought that most would rather ignore. i can understand, death is a distressing concept to those that haven't done it many many times before. those that have might share my sentiment that meditating on the natural course of death is a genuinely magnificent way to appreciate life. because you don't know what you've got till you've gone.

Check in

"Broccoli Broccoli Broccoli!"
the young man says, if he didn't it would cease to exist underneath his hands and within my mind.
"D'yer want sugar in yor hot chocolate?"
fascinating concept, another: Online check-in opens 60 days before the flight departs. i can confirm my arrival up to 60 days before i get there... heeeehee right yeah..
