Happy New Year Everyone

Whilst I track down my publisher to ascertain the progress on my (long awaited) book, I thought I would update you on my Christmas festivities and some other random thoughts:
After singing weird carols, badly I ended up with a troubled conscience. Was I losing my religion? Was my hippy idolism of Jesus the original preacher of love falling apart? All that long hair and sandals and walking on water - was I turning into a Judas when the blasted carols seriously got on my nerves or when I agreed with Muslim flatmate that all world religions are based on the same thing like fear? What a mix up in my mind! Maybe this is why I am so pathologically superstitious?

But over to Richard Dawkins who says 'The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser, a misogynistic homophobic, racist, infanticide, genocide, filicidal, pestilential, megalomania cal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.'

Bjork says, 'The Buddhists say we come back as animals and they refer to them as lesser beings. Well, animals aren't lesser beings, they're just like us. So I say f*** the Buddhists.'

Frank Zappa says, 'To hand all this desperate sociology on the idea of The Cloud Guy who has The Big Book, who knows if you've been bad or good - and care about any of it - is the chimpanzee part of the brain working.'

Of course, what is really interesting is that the UK's oldest duck, Edwina, has died at the age of 22.

Have you ever been sacked? Tom Binns, a DJ of BRMB radio interrupted HM's Christmas speech by accidentally switching its feed and putting on a Wham! Song instead, saying, 'From one Queen to another'. He was sacked. Shame. Seems to me he should have got a pay rise.

On 'hidden treasure' - tomorrow’s theme:

Not everyone gets to measure
The full extent of pure pleasure
Some are content
With that heaven-sent
Moment of real hidden treasure
