If you didn’t have a massive crush on Zia McCabe before… you will after watching her dance!


Because I was born in a hell of a year for music, is it any wonder my tastes would run the way they do????

Some of you might remember the Dolly Mixture as the backing band/vocals for Captain Sensible’s hit(?) song “Wot”….

Some of you might remember Captain Sensible as being the guitarist for the band the Damned.

and Some of you might remember the Damned being a pretty hardcore punk band in the late 70s.

They beat him up until the teardrops start
But he can’t be wounded ‘cause he’s got no heart

Thoughts at 1am...

My cousin Richard died in a motorcycle accident.

I never even knew I had a cousin Richard.

<!-- more -->

I never even knew my Aunt and Uncle had kids.

That pretty much sums up how this family is,… for almost 40 years, I’ve never met my cousins, they have never been a part of my life, nor I theirs.

Apparently another cousin had a baby a few weeks ago, I have never heard of her either. I asked how she was related, they said she is cousin Larry’s daughter.

I asked who Cousin larry was…

You can see where this is going.

My father was angry that I didn’t care more about the death of my cousin. He wasn’t alive before as far as I knew! It’s sad he’s dead, just as it’s sad anytime anyone dies, but that’s as far as that goes.

Mom was mad that I didn’t feel any want to send a present to Kim to welcome to the new baby… why should I?

Mom’s answer was that I met her when I was 2… and to her that’s enough of a reason.

She can’t believe I don’t remember her. “You really liked playing with her!” … I … was.. 2. For 1 day I knew her, for the next 14,600 days she didn’t exist to me.

They both act so exasperated  at my lack of feelings toward these people. Yet they’re the ones who kept me isolated from them. We never had family get togethers, we never speak about them, I literally had no idea I had cousins.

I’ve met my aunts and uncles a few times, a very very few times, but they never brought their kids to any of those holiday dinners or what not.

I grew up in an almost forced isolation… and they act surprised that I have no feelings toward these people and cannot recollect anyone I met at age 2 for a day.

“Don’t you remember your great aunt so an so??? She was at the wedding I took you to when you were almost 3!”

And never again did they exist :| 

Mom was close with her family, because they all grew up in Michigan. When she left to California, she kept in touch writing letters, but I wasn’t involved in any of that and she never spoke of them.

When I had my birthdays, or hannukah, or even my bar mitzvah, they didn’t send cards or acknowledge my existence, and we never did the same for them.

I don’t know why. I asked mom and she just shrugged and said they were far away so what difference did it make?

Well, this is the difference.. this. This right here.

Someone died and thats sad. Someone gave birth and that’s cool.

They are just someones, and nothing else. I doubt I’ll remember their names next week.

Grenfell Tower Fire


In the early hours of the morning, a fire broke out in a 24 storey block of flats in West London. The fire quickly spread, engulfing almost the whole building of between 120-130 council flats with hundreds of people inside. 

Many residents have fled in nothing but their nightclothes and a number of local centres and religious buildings have opened their doors and are sheltering these now homeless and traumatised people. However donations of clothes, toiletries, food and toys are desperately needed. 

Centres Accepting Donations:

Harrow Club - donations can be dropped off at 187 Freston Road, London W10 6TH

Rugby Portobello Trust -  donations can be dropped off at 221 Walmer Road, London W11 4EY

St. Clements Church -  donations can be dropped off at 95 Sirdar Road, London W11 4EQ
