    “I want to be in a band. When I get to Heaven.
    Anyone can play guitar,
    and they won’t be nothing anymore.”

    “His latest obsession.” That’s what my mum calls it. Always with that slight rolling of the eyes that hurts my heart. Mum says that I have to understand that she and dad have seen so many obsessions throughout ...

    “I don’t have to sell my soul, he’s already in me.”

    I didn’t make it back to school for a few days. mum wanted to storm up there and talk to the head! But I begged her not to. I don’t want any fuss made. I told mum that I probably just left my book somewhere. I know I didn’t... one thing about my obsessive brain is that I always know where my stuff is. If there is ever a time when something of mine is not where it should be (even if I am using said thing myself) my brain constantly monitors the situation until I can put the thing back where it belongs. As I write this, a small part of my brain is solely concentrating on reminding me to put the book ...

    "Everywhere I hear the sound of marching charging feet, boy.
    Because the summer's here and the time is right for fighting in the street, boy."

    My acting immersion plan was far from perfect and today was one of those days where it was far from that. I have created characters that can interact with most of the adults in my life. Adults were relatively easy because they were mostly consistent. They mostly want to and tried to help me. Some of my teachers were impossible but from what i could work out they were impossible for everyone. A few of the kids at school were possible to interact with, as long as I didn't make any mistakes. Girls were another story, it was going to take me an age to work out what they are all about. When I was younger I usually found girls easier to get along ...

    If Only Tonight We Could Sleep - 1989


    “If only tonight we could sleep in a bed made of flowers”

    I don’t mean to upset mum but that doesn’t override the fact that my shirt and tie are strangling me. We’ve arranged with the school that I don’t need to wear a tie, so why do I have to now?

    “Please, honey,” says mum, her voice wobbling through her gentle flowing tears “Just for today. Alan, just for today”

    She moves her eyes down ...

    "Here comes a soul saver on your record player floating about in the dust"




    Dad got mad with me! I don’t blame him but my brain exploded. The lights, the music and all the records.I just couldn’t believe there were so many records. How can anybody make the decision of what to get. He was disappointed with me for not asking anyone at school what i should get. I didn’t know why but when i walked in that shop and ...
