April 23rd, the year 2017… 

April 23rd, the year 2017 and once again i find myself back in this strange place, surrounded by archaic machinery with dials and levers glowing in the dim light. The Mysterious Mr Rocker is sat with his back to me murmuring about some kind of vindaloo he’d experimented with the night before, I don’t know if he is talking to me , himself or some unseen spirit ghost.

Sparks begin to fly as he plugs a cable into the back of an electronic desk contraption. My eyes follow the wire down to the ground and along the floor towards my feet. My heart stops a beat with horror as i realise the wire splits in two and runs up either leg and up to my head where it is fastened to my temples  with gaffa tape. My gaze turns back to Mr Rocker and he is looking straight at me with what can only be described as a friendly smile.

What have you done? i ask.

‘Its the only way’ he replies. By extracting your innermost thoughts, dreams and fears we’ll finally be able to defeat them’.

Defeat who? I demand

Why, the fascist of course, who else…………

I wake in a cold sweat. It was just dream. Its must’ve been a dream surly. We defeated the fascists long ago…..

Didn’t we…..?

Rock opera #1&2

I seem to have accidentally found my self writing 2 rock operas. The first is an Eco Si-Fi story about a guy travelling into space with aliens to save the sun only to find himself all alone with humanity wiped out. The other is a musical based on the life and work of George Orwell. Didn’t see that coming

‘This is a song about a nurse called Sally, Its called Sally the Nurse!’

Post Op lung issues (not mine). A district nurse didn’t have a clue so we drove to the hospital. Marched up and down corridors, breathing getting difficult then Sally the Nurse came along and new exactly what to do and what we needed. Big thanks to the NHS. Some people are trying to stop it, Some people are just no good!
