A la Mr SC, I’m just going to highlight a few things I’ve been reading lately….a few I’ve read before, and a few that I’ve been newly introduced to…..First up has to be Mr Spicy Cauldron himself, with his post about being banned in China! Wahay! I am…..

Firstly TrashCanDan’s blog, Musings of a Damaged Mind, which made surreal reading, and so much the better…a worthy blogroll addition….hell, there’s lots of musing going on round here, me, AD, Dan……and the bacon tattoo stole the show completely……

A purple-brained dragon, AmethystDragon has had me fantasising about Johnny Depp in work time, thinking what it must be like to have a purple brain and looking at my visual DNA, and is even leading Mr A astray with her homage to Hayseed Dixie I don’t feel like dancing (bluegrass style)

Through Mr Spicy Cauldron, I was also introduced to YeYo’s blog, Ye-Yo, Lillies of a Mother, and her spirited post ‘A Letter to Joe Q Public’ about the importance of legal aid both for clients and their legal representatives…something that obviously caught my imagination with recent events in my life….

Then there’s Hayes’s new blog QPLog Brainmatter…….Have seen Hayes around, but now can read him online regularly! I loved Bridge to Terabithia as a kid as well…..

I feel for Nathalitanis, who is having employment hassle in ‘Oh No, not again’ over at One Life among The Many- breathe deeply and try not to hit them (too often)!

Not forgetting Sue’s new blog, Pastyme with Good Companye, and it’s recent post on one of my heroes…Sylvia Plath

ChaoticKitty has been creating some beautiful visuals again over at Kitty’s Ramblings with her latest artwork…it’s stunning, go take a look on Busy weekend

That bad girl Beaut1ful has been leading me astray into the world of blogthings again, hence my own disgraceful showing in the purity score….

To finish, loved Howard’s post on The WebPen Blog about Randomnessocitiation: Pursuit Of The Obnoxious Mind– Started me thinking……Grease set in a Lancashire mill town perhaps?

And if you want the bag, it’s available from Elizium, my friends Martha and Mia’s goth online and offline wonderland!!!


Oh dear oh dear oh dear….

Knew I shouldn’t have looked at Beaut1ful’s blog…made me try this test, and the result was bad bad bad… you can see why I’m banned in China!

You Are 4% Pure

You’ve been a very bad girl or boy…
And you probably enjoyed every minute of it.
How Pure Are You?

Chinese prejudice against mouthy goths!!!

It’s official…according to Mr Spicy Cauldron– and I’ve checked- I am banned in China!

Spicy’s article

Great Firewall of China

I’m mightily glad about that. It’s good to be banned. At least I know that I don’t somehow, and bizarrely win the approval of a backward and totalitarian state. It might be the vampires they don’t like- or they have an irrational prejudice against that fair stretch of the Lancashire Riviera called Morecambe…but it might just be from last year when HWCBN was trying to cyber-gag me by preventing me from saying anything about him on my blog, even though it was legally (even according to the smirking policeman that told me) very dodgy ground, and I was defending the liberty of free speech. This might have upset them a little, I guess.

That leads me to wonder if in that case, China is afraid of Goths under the bed????

My Visual DNA……

Posted in blogging, Child Protection, creative / writing, employment, gothic, me and my world, music on March 29, 2007 by Khlari

Who the heck are they you might ask…They are in fact the band of Rob, one of the nice people at work, and they are up to play at this summer’s V-fest, if they only get enough votes….

so if you click here to vote for them they will stand a much better chance!

This is what V-fest have to say about them……

Band members

  • Rob (Vocals and Guitar)
  • Fahim (Percussion and Vocals)
  • Beno (Guitar and Vocals)
  • Jave (Bass)

Lost for words. Four guys all wanting to play lead with their own instrument having to find a compromise and this is the end result. You can hear more on

Born under the year of….er, a goat actually….

Posted in blogging, creative / writing, me and my world, pagan on March 27, 2007 by Khlari

You Were Born Under:

Your most comfortable inside your head – and often daydream the day away.
You have an artistic temperament that makes you seem creative to some, eccentric to others.
You avoid conflict at all costs, and you have a difficult time with relationships.
Attractive and with good manners, you tend to shine in social situations.

You are most compatible with a Pig or Rabbit.

What Year Were You Born Under?

Famous last words…(mine apparently)
