In praise of Mills.

No not a tribute to a dead comdian,Bob Mills to the best of my knowledge IS alive and well and I hope it stays that way for many years to come (and I guess he does too).

Bob Mills is a man who has seemed to creep under the radar of main stream entertainment,he has flirted with prime time T.V but for the life of me I can't recall that much of his work in that time slot apart from an apprence in They Think It's All Over sometime in the mid-nineties.

I am well aware that he has done a lot of stand up work and is as much of a work horse of the comdey circuit as any other more celebrated comedians. The Programme In Bed With Me Dinner and it's follow up Still In Bed With Me Dinner are to me and the member that make up it's cult following forgoten classic television.

Broadcast for students,drunk heads and those who who lurk around the television set in the late hours of the night In Bed With Me Dinner used Bob Mills rye and lightly burning take on the world to make fun of some of the most obscure and stupid television clips from the U.K and abroad.

If you think this is some Tarrent on T.V style tosh your utterly wrong because where as Tarrent (and before him Clive James) basicly said "oh look at those funny foriegners good job were sane" Bob Mills just looked at the inanity and diliousion that the people in his programme clips displayed.

Yet I only know a handful of people who know about this show and only one other person who loves it as much as I do. To me that's a crime and poor old Bob Mills can't still get a look in on a new televison show,oh what I would give for this to come back.

So Bob Mills from me here is a place on the internet in praise of your work and one in the eye for those who over look you and your programme.

....oh yeah as a point of intrest Russell Brand made a show last year that was give or take an eye liner smudge or two a carbon copy of In Bed With Me Dinner....!?

It was a good programme and I do find Russell Brand funny but it just wasn't the wasn't Bob :(

Oh and how could I forget my favourite word....Muggy-bonehead :D

Tears- Blood from a wounded heart/Daimonds from the souls joy mine.

Do we only notice what is really going on when the physicals signs materialise do we only actually find out the truth when visual action is displayed.

Tears and crying hold a dear and fearful fascination that draws closer to me as I grow older and learn. The truth is you and I both cry for a myriad of reasons,so many causes that they could only ever be out numbered by the fragmented eternal reflections inside a jewelled hidden chamber of mirrors.

I can only speak upon what I have felt and seen as to why we cry tears and this is what I have learned.


Another human needs help they cry as a signal of distress to another. S.O.S it states "I am vulnerble and hurt" have they been neglected or shut away the feelings they should of allowed themselves to feel.
Some say that when we cry for sadness,loss,stress or fear it could be the last resort and the steps that should of been taken to prevent it happening were sadly not done. Now is the time to clutch the hand of the other and share the strength,unburden and touch their cheek with tender care.

Stop the bleeding from the heart,stem the tears.

Have you ever felt that connection to another crying whether you see it on Television,in the street or someone close to you. It's affecting and at times causes the witness to weep too.


Relief,Joy and Happiness this time an event is so wonderful that you cannot fully take in it's real it's unlike tears of sadness when you wish it wasn't.
Gravity is inverted here everything lifts spring is always and all you want to do is share the life in your heart with everyone.

People seem to understand exactly what to do in this situation is it because it's less complex? Probably because it's positive...but whichever it is committed actions are highly likely when someone sees you like this or you see them.

I am trying to return the blog in a slightly more eclectic style (as it was before and as it was supposed to be) things have become far to personal on here really.
So maybe this little observational entry makes a pleasant change :)

Horror story news...Filthy Creations 5!

Right some news on what's up next from me and where you can read my latest storys,W.E.B a story that has been put on my blog is to be included in the fifth edition of one of the nets best kept secrets Filthy Creations. So I am really happy about that and a big thank you goes out to Rog Pile who not only runs and edits the publications but is also a sterling horror writer in his own right.

Dracula 1982 A.D will also see print in the third edition of The British Horror Forum Book of Horror but as I have no more information as to when this will come out I can't update anyone. The cover is completed,all the storys are there and I don't think it is too far off seeing the light of day,I would imagine you should expect this title in about November...but remeber that is just a guess.

Charles Black has also kindly gave me the opitunity to send a story in for consideration for his short story collection Black Book of Horror,this will be the third edition and I am going to try my level best to get in it.
Things as with all the publications I have had my work included in I am in the company of some extremely gifted writers (and artists) so it's always a matter of having to write at your best.

So I am off to look for a proof reader :P

Take Care.
