Friday Fictioneers – Champ

And here we are again, gathering around the Fireside of Fiction. Doug MacIlroy took the pic this week

which Rochelle emailed to us all.  The FF family gather every week on Froggy Island to share their tales, toast marshmallows and sing songs of love and happiness long into the night. Pop over there and pay us a visit, but don’t forget to read my 100 words below first….

 

 

Luigi crouches, takes my gloved hands in his. He sees the doubts hiding inside my eyes.

“You can do this,” he says, “it’s your dream, your destiny. Your WFGA title, his WFGC title – unified. You’ll be undisputed. The Best.”
My mind drifts back years. To training in the park, working on technique and stamina. Back then it was for pride and enjoyment, not for multi-million dollar prizes, not for world titles. There was no crowd, but no pressure; a happier time.

Choon Choosday: Dizzee Rascal – Bonkers

Choon Choosday: The Beatles – Tomorrow Never Knows

Yes I know, The Beatles, they’re the biggest and most important band ever etc etc so posting them is a bit of a cliche. Sorry  about that. But this is a lesser known track which appears at the end of Revolver, and it’s the high water mark of western popular music. It’s over fifty years old and has never been bettered; probably never will be. It’s an extraordinary, modern song that still sounds ahead of the curve today, and when you factor in that this was made before computers and samplers so it was literally made by cutting up actual lengths of tape and building layer upon layer on a four-track desk, it takes on yet further depths of genius and creativity.
