The Joy Web Sight

The Fist of Nature, the top of your head, visible from the ground

On which Andrew and I met Fagin

We were smoking the cigarettes of people who quite smoking outside of a pub in cold, 80% grey London night. Pints on the ledge and discussing in detail, important information and pertinent observations.

We were approached by two fellas, one older, dusty and emitting synthetic bonhomie, the other; young, with face organised by fast, heavy collisions and on the run. 

Age moved forward in conversation and desire to evaporate proximity, youth leaned back and worked at transmitting jovial normality while absorbing the  lessons being taught by Fagan. 

He leaned in, discussing many new topics, switching topics and addressing focus on a metal pin on my lapel. His wish to stand close was inversely proportionate to my Canadian reflex for space. He was perturbed by his inability to stand 3cm away from me.

Andrew and I finally were able to distribute our disquiet in sufficient quantities to swamp the interrupters activities and eventually they departed and we continued to drink.

Why I love fried chicken

Going for a Walk with a Nerve

May 31, 2012


The application I have been using for this sight has been updated and it has taken a little bit of time to get used to all of the new things that it has to offer and ways it has rumbled my old way of working.

There has been drilling and filling on my right back molar and now I am beset with pain during eating and have fallen in love with aspirin, I have been told by my dentist that this means the nerve is not being affected if the old bark is able to have effect. Maybe I will get skinny.

I am preparing one of my books for placement in the Amazon Kindle marketplace, as their tools are very easy to use, much like the s3 and have chosen my private jet for when the book becomes popular.

Let's Hear it for the Groys

Thanks for the title and pointing out this lecture, Chris !

This lecture is a fine example of the speaker clearly speaking while the presenter stumbles around like a pile of bad metaphor and half thoughts imagined full, using the level of discourse that will secure a job while clouding the view of the world with misplaced Orwell and dusty Mauss.

Sky Drive™

In the rush for dematerialisation, companies all over the world have looked up, into the dome of the sky to plot their way. Helping them become mist and fog I have signed up for the above account. It will contain the yet unimagined, unrealised and mighty. Only by working together can we help these organisations realise their dreams.

Rainy Day

In the last few days my activity has been concerned with organising a data base of printed works and drinking beer, worrying about money and chatting a bit. Today is a rainy day and there have been copious photo sorting and discussions for the eventual inclusion of new shelves in the bedroom.

Clipping from the papers, the newspapers here are shit

Travel Documents

Due to twisting logistics of private and public bodies, my visit to Canada will, probably, not be able to unfold as hoped. I will spend my time off work this year scheming and plotting a bridge to unite these two lands.
