Man posts to internet: tumbleweed

The image above shows the artist Claire Blundell Jones introducing tumbleweed to the Finnish landscape. Picture by me, taken on a cold misty morning in the town of Kuopio.

Posted for why? Fuh’pause I have uploaded some WRITING to the INTERNET, and you can find it hey-orr, or by clicking on the “Sample: writing” link elsewhere on this page.

I hope to chuck more PDFs online as time goes by, but for the moment there’s a screenplay, some critical writing, an exercise in pop music-based masochism and an account of attending the wonderful festival that the pictured Ms Blundell Jones was part of in 2007.

WHAT MORE U WANT? U WANT MORE PICS? YEAH OK.

    Hi Claire! Yes. That’s you, that is.

    And on the day that the leafblower almost refused to work, too.

    Somewhere I’ve still got recordings of you struggling to start the damn thing, before Rosie D came to the rescue… must dig those out sometime…
