Sonic Attack - Micheal Moorcock/Robert Calvert/Hawkwind
the prisoner is following that wonderful blogging trend and posting poetry, but naturally its a bit different...
In case of Sonic Attack on your district,
follow these rules.....
If you are making love, it is imperative to bring all bodies to orgasm simultaneously
Do not waste time blocking your ears
Do not waste time seeking a soundproof shelter
Try to get as far away from the sonic source as possible, but do not panic.....
Use your wheels, it is what they are for
Small babies may be placed inside the special cocoons, which should be left if possible, in a shelter
Do not attempt to use your own limbs
If no wheels are available, metal, not organic, limbs should be employed whenever practical.....
Remember, in the case of Sonic Attack,
Survival does mean every man for himself
Statistically more people survive
if they think only of themselves
Do not attempt to rescue friends,
relatives, or loved ones.
You have only a few seconds to escape
Use those seconds sensibly or you will inevitably die
Do not panic
Think only of yourselves....
These are the first signs of Sonic Attack:
You will notice small objects, such as ornaments, oscillating.
You will notice a vibration in your diaphragm
You will hear a distant hissing in your ears
You will feel dizzy
You will feel the need to vomit
There will be bleeding from orifices
There will be an ache in the pelvic region
You may be subject to fits of hysterical shouting,
or even laughter
These are all sign of imminent Sonic destruction
Your only real protection is flight
If you are less than ten years old,
then remain in your shelter and use your cocoon
But remember: You can help no-one else,
To truly appreciate the genius you have to hear a spoken version from one of hawkwind's live albums, preferably Space Ritual, which in my opinion was their best work.
Incidentally, after months and months and months of searching i have finally got a job at the local cinema, just like that. weird.
Just a warning that im going to be really busy for a while with work and editing a film for uni and delivering yellow pages(don't ask). So interweb activity of any kind is going to be restricted until i actually have more than five minutes to myself.

The Prisoner has made a cheap aquisition
My mum and i went to rochester to view the exhibition of works by Billy Childish (local artist, writer, poet, filmmaker and musician). on the way back we ambled into the camera shop which has brand new and also very old equipment, and lo and behold, we walked out with this...
a double 8 clockwork cine camera with a fistful of filters and things, the only thing i dont have is any film stock, but after a quick browse on the net, i have discovered a source of b/w film for about £11 a hit, which isnt too bad at all when you consider how much uni spends supplying us with 16mm (i.e. Shitloads).
this is gonna be fun...
