The Music of the Spheres

As we all know Tapioca Draingurgle shot to fame last year when her song Explaining Eigenvalues shot to the top of YouTube’s most coveted and hotly contested Mathematical Concepts Set to Song by Attractively Underdressed Young Ladies category. It easily beat the next song on the most watched list by over 1 000 000 downloads,Continue reading “The Music of the Spheres”

No Inspiration

‘When do we start? After all there is a completely blank page waiting for us.’ Well, there was. Until you started. ‘What do you mean? You are the one doing the typing. You are the writer. I’m just a character.’ I was going to write something completely different, at least until you popped up onContinue reading “No Inspiration”

Everything Comes Back to Time

There is time. There is always time. At least, until one day there isn’t. That was what Glench thought. For a while… well, for most of his life up until it happened. No, that wasn’t true. Glench shook his head and tried to remember which of the two glasses was the one he was drinkingContinue reading “Everything Comes Back to Time”

Travelling Man

I wandered into town carrying my guitar and a handful of songs. As I left the last town – I’d already forgotten its name – there was talk of bandits on the road. But they had not bothered me. Travelling musicians don’t get much trouble from bandits. They know we are poorer than they are,Continue reading “Travelling Man”

You Get the Picture

But even that is not without difficulties. At least when it is so… well, you get the picture. Don’t you? Oh. Well, it happens I suppose. After all, this new technology stuff, even though it is less of the new than it once was, still has certain problems doing all the things we are promisedContinue reading “You Get the Picture”

Public Intercourse

Obviously, it is not meant to look like that. At least not in this light. But you know what they are like once they take a dislike to something. Apparently, it was not only the wrong shape, but the wrong shade of purple too. Now it is even more of a wrong shape. And evenContinue reading “Public Intercourse”

Fiction Rights

She stood in the middle of the room and reached up to the fastener on the back of her dress. She let it fall to the floor. Sher took a bra strap in her hand, easing it from her shou- ‘Hang on!’ ‘What?’ She pulled the bra strap back over her shoulder and picked theContinue reading “Fiction Rights”

The Away Strip

On the whole, it is probably not advisable. After all, she does tend towards having a bit of a temper, especially when the football overruns and she is denied her weekly dosage of televisual hirsute scything. So, any attempt to discuss the disallowed goal in the dying seconds of the second half of extra timeContinue reading “The Away Strip”

Songs of Loss

‘Why do you only ever sing songs of loss,’ I asked her once. Shelda looked at me through half-closed eyes. ‘Because that is all there is.’ She raised a weary hand from under the thin sheet covering us. She waved towards the window. ‘Look around.’ I nodded. I didn’t need to look around. The cityContinue reading “Songs of Loss”

Opening with the Weather

It was one of those opening scenes that begin with a description of the weather. Well, it would have done if the writer had decided what it was he was going to write. He hadn’t had a decent idea for weeks… months. The blank pages had stared back at him each morning, daring him toContinue reading “Opening with the Weather”
