Bovver Boys

Now I’m not entirely sure what these boys are up to but you can bet your bottom dollar it isn’t something wholesome that your mum would approve of.

In our post-brexit future however all street corners will come equipped with at least a couple of these lads hanging around who’ll you have to bypass on the way to your zero hour contract minimum wage job that you’re desperately trying to keep a hold of. Grim isn’t it? But, as they say, failing to plan is planning to fail.

‘Bovver Boys’ is still available via Play Dead gallery until 16th Feb. She’s A2 and is £130 if anyone wants to give her a new home.

We forge the chains that bind us in life

We as individuals make our own limitations, our own chains. Without sounding like a self-help book ‘we forge the chains that bind us in life’ is something of a blinding truism that many people fail to see. It’s not what happens to us in life but how we handle whatever comes our way that makes us what we are. That said I did get arrested once and i’m pretty sure the handcuffs weren’t constructed by my fair hand. So take from that what you will.

Those in the know may have realised I’ve paraphrased Charles Dickens for the quote on this one. But it’s a good one.

A few versions of ‘We forge the chains’ are still available via Play Dead gallery until 16th Feb. They’re A2 and are £130 each if anyone wants to give them a new home.

Time cannot be saved

Time is a funny old thing. As a kid you can’t wait to grow up and be able to do all the things you dream of. Then somehow life gets in the way and before you know it you’ve somehow morphed into an adult human and realise that adulting isn’t quite all it was cracked up to be. You want that carefree time back. But you can’t have it. Time cannot be saved. It can only be spent. Spend it wisely. Here ends the lesson.

Oh no. Not you again!

It used to be easier to avoid people when we dealt solely with physical reality. If you clocked them before they saw you again then avoidance was a doddle. I think I miss those days. With today’s hyper-connected world however it’s becoming increasingly difficult to perform this critical function unless you choose not to engage with social media at all so today’s piece is a paean to those simpler times.

Break the News to Mother

The year is 1974 and Herbert Bates is coming up the driveway to the house he shares with his mother with this somewhat salacious looking young lady. He met her just this evening. He’d like her to stay. Herbert is 44 years of age. He’s concerned about how he’s going to break the news to mother. She never does take surprises very well…

A Daughter of the South

She dangerous! She’s deceptive! She’s deadly! She’s a Daughter of the South for sure. You may have seen her once but you’d never recognise her again. They are legion. When the nation calls an enigmatic and elusive Daughter of the South is sure to answer. And roll opening credits.

That would be my pitch for my imaginary TV series ‘A Daugther of the South’. Think somewhere between Breaking Bad and Sons Of Anarchy but set in wartime UK. Oh bugger. I’ve just come up with a parallel universe version of Peaky Blinders haven’t I? Great minds and all that…

A little old fashioned that’s all

She looks much like any other lady you might see swanning around town and to all intents and purposes she is. It would be difficult to distinguish her from a thousand others just like her if you didn’t happen to know her a bit better. And what would distinguish her in this modern world of tinder dating, digital photography and deliveroo would be the fact that she likes to do things the old fashioned way. That isn’t to say she isn’t aware these modern conveniences but just that she prefers the old school, hands-on style experience. And who’s to say she’s wrong…

‘A little old fashioned that’s all’ is still available via Play Dead gallery until 16th Feb. They’re A2 and are £130 a pop if anyone wants to give them a new home.
