Futile Comfort 0.5

Posted in Band, Lyrics by netscheri on April 29, 2008

This is an earlier version of ‘Futile Comfort‘, hence the 0.5

On a sleepless night
I, faltering but watchful, saw every colour fade to grey
Now even the brightest of days carries an imprint of that awakening

How can I sing to you the poetry of loss?
Through a twist of a phrase, the sly slinking through of words, I try to convey
Even so, for you, only a piece of a broken icon, only a piece of distant dust
Asking why meaning in everything is necessary

Futile Comfort

Posted in Band, Lyrics by netscheri on April 29, 2008

On a sleepless night
I, faltering but watchful, saw every colour bleed to grey
Now even the brightest of days carries an imprint of that awakening

How can I sing to you the poetry of loss?
Through a twist of a phrase, the sly slinking through of words, I try to convey
Even so, for you, only a broken image, only a fragment of distance
Asking why meaning in anything is necessary

A little prose

Posted in Original, Prose, Writing by netscheri on April 10, 2008

The idea came from Hector and Paris from Troy, but I really just wanted to explore what it would be like to be reunited with a family member, or someone similar, after a long separation. (more…)

The Stone

Song of the Moment:
TIME SLIP – L’Arc~en~Ciel (2000)

It turns out now, that ‘Time Slip’ is very relevant. My silly mother fervently insisted that the clocks should be turned forward an hour instead of back. In having corrected my mother, I feel all happy that I’ve ‘gained’ two hours as it is now established that it is four, not six.

Did you enjoy the last opinion piece? I hope you did, because there’s going to be at least one more.

I thought that I’d kill two birds with one stone, so to speak (I seem to have acquired quite a fondness for that phrase recently), so I’m brainstorming and posting at the same time. Actually, now that I think about it, I’m trying to kill three birds with one stone, since I’m going to try to extort all the feedback on the ideas I can from everyone and anyone.

Rock music as a model for life

Posted in Original, Thoughts, Writing by netscheri on April 6, 2008

It’s unintentional, but I always seem to vanish for prolonged periods of time after telling everyone that I won’t be vanishing for a prolonged period of time again. I’ll make it different this time. I’m here to tell everyone that I will be vanishing for a prolonged period of time. And I have an exact date as well – two weeks, from now until the 18th of April.

Today, though – in another change to the usual – I have something else to offer, rather than little comments and apologies. I wrote this column-article a few weeks ago, and I thought that the regular and accidental readers of this blog might be interested in it. It’s not as good or as well written as it could be, but all the main ideas are there. So, enjoy, and thank you for the few minutes of your time that you have spared in looking at this humble blog.
