Seems that my old host has lost all my files from so many years of keeping this blog… For long time fans, and possible new fans: please find me at http://thewickedmachine.com ::  my relaunch of the former… I hope you enjoy what is to come…

Oh, the urge to kill somebody was basically overwhelming
I had such hard blues down there in the supermarket queues
And I had a sudden urge to become someone,
someone like you
Who started out with less than anyone I ever knew

-Nick Cave

Official launch of the new product is coming soon, thank you to everyone who has stuck by year after battling year…. I hope you enjoy what is to come…

Sorrow found me when I was young,
Sorrow waited, sorrow won.
Sorrow that put me on the pills,
It’s in my honey it’s in my milk.
It’s only about half a heart alone
On the water,
Cover me in rag and bones, sympathy.
‘Cause I don’t wanna get over you.
I don’t wanna get over you.

-The National
