I write poetry, produce music, make video clips, work occassionally as a sound and lighting operator. I enjoy gardening and science - particularly concerning the Big Bang and the nucleosynthesis of the elements in the periodic table. More about that later. I will get around to espousing my theory of a spiral period table and it's place in the Big Bang Theory.
I still have a few things to do here . . . I've just cleaned up my haiku page, added a blog and sorted out how to install photo galleries. I still need to tidy up the music and video pages . . . try and make them a bit simpler and cleaner looking. I've added an mp3 player and a video player . . . you can listen to music and watch video at Radio Curly and Video Curly.
I have begun writing my autobiography - I was a teenage roadie. I've hit a bit of a hole in the wall but have managed to come up with a substantial number of words and recollections of a misspent youth. You can have a preview here I was a Teenage Roadie if you manage to get through any of it I would be interested to hear your comments. If you know me and have some old memories, I'd love to hear about those too.
