Always Crashing in the Same Car

Weird that Bowie must have died around the time that I uploaded the post below.
Weird that I chose this day to start PGABNB again.
Weird that 3 Premier League games I watched last week ended in a 3 - 3 draw with goals in the dying seconds (the Chelsea vs Everton result was extremely spooky!).
Weird that I crashed the car into a neighbour's metal car-park structure.

The Birth of a Star

An album by a lesser known musician called David Bowie has been causing something of a stir at
former world famous blogspot Papa's Got a Brand New Blog. The infrequently published blogspot came out of self-imposed, semi-retirement (for the umpteenth time) just to voice its opinion on the newcomer, and tip the fledgling musician as "one to watch for the future" and "a star in the making".
According to PGABNB's music critic, the album, entitled "Blackstar", is something of a "minor masterpiece" that should help the trainee pop star establish himself as a force to be reckoned with in the future. Moreover, the album is being heralded as a candidate for album of the year despite 2016 having only just begun. One spokesperson for the wacky online rag (who refused to be named) even refered to the work as "album of the decade". Only time will tell if Bowie becomes a star man as predicted. If he does, remember, you read it here first!

Best Recent Reads

Ex-world famous blogspot Papasgotabrandnewblog has been doing a fair bit of reading recently. The following are the recommended reads.

The Museum of Innocence by Orhan Pamuk: A wonderful attempt at describing the essence of true, everlasting love. Somewhat poetic in its flow.

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman: A gentle fantasy-adventure for all the family. This is only the second book I've started by Gaiman, and the first I've managed to finish.

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt: This is like a Luc Besson version of a modern day Catcher in the Rye. Extremely readable, over-the-top, youth action-caper.

The Ring

The Ring is based on an original story devised with Daniel Brierley and Mark Chamberlien* (*I think) back in 1986/7 as project for a film course at the London College of Printing. It tells the story of a ring and how it affects the lives of all the people who come into contact with it. It passes from the hands of a two-timed lover in full circle via a couple of schoolboys, a bully, a fence, a poker-game, a small-time drug baron, a thief, the school boys for a second time, and a tramp. Finally it makes it back to its original owner but prior to her being spurned leaving the spectator with the following doubts. Has the story finished, or is it about to begin? Was the story a premonition, with the destiny already inscribed in the ring?

This is the original 8mm footage.

New Superhero Sighted in Bristol

A new superhero has been reported in the Bristol area. “Slot-Machine Mouth Girl” has the amazing super power of being able to eat money (well, at least she made all our money disappear!).  At the time of going to press, world famous blogspot papasgotabrandnewblog was unable to think of how “Slot-Machine Mouth Girl”will be able to assist society and change the world, however, we are mighty impressed with her outfit (a rather more street-cred look, we feel, that should be a big hit with the youngsters). Any citizen in peril who needs “Slot-Machine Mouth Girl”’s assistance only has to make a request via the super-hero’s mother’s Facebook and “Slot-Machine Mouth Girl” will come running to the rescue as soon as she gets the message. According to one unnamed resident in the Southville area of Bristol, locals are happy because “at least they can go to bed at night knowing that the streets are safe”. Well done “Slot-Machine Mouth Girl!”
