a murder of crows

black is black and i’m back

someone picked the lock

memories push hard to be released

the drugs no longer give relief

i faced the knife on april 20th

the death card concurred

not today

it’s a wait n see

the crows are calling

drawing me into their blackness

the bed beckons

it’s such a fight again and again

i’ll pull the shades

of remembrance

and pray for silence

60’s Refugee PG Naylor Ready for Takeoff

check out this artist!


Singer/Songwriter/Performer Making International Impact

(New York, NY) – Prolific Australia based performing singer-songwriter PG Naylor has released his latest single, “Something for Nothing” to Spotify and all the major music services.


A classic rock expert, PG Naylor has a knack for delivering hard hitting vocals with fun lyrics and sleek melodies woven together with both intricate harmonies and straight up grit.

Also of note from previous releases: “Fly”, “60’s Refugee” and “Law ‘Bidin Man”.


In keeping with the song’s theme of “Something for Nothing”, it’s important to mention PG and his group’s ongoing charity work with Bo Childrens Hospital in Sierra Leone. Expecting nothing in return, the band has raised $50k for the hospital over 8 years. All monies collected from their concerts goes directly from the band to the hospital, no middle man to muddy the waters.

Picture this, you’ve just gotten out of a relationship that was very all over the place all the time. After the breakup, you can’t figure out whether you love or hate the person. You keep going through the memories that you made together and realized that person really just numbed…

my hands, my life

just a quick note to all my fellow bloggers. I have been limited, more so than in the past.

My RA ,etc. has gotten the better of me and I now have a torn rotator cuff on my right shoulder, tendonitis, etc. Too painful to type or text, or even use the mouse. This was after I had just recovered from surgery on my left hand for a dislocated extensor tendon and sagittal band rupture.

another piece gone. Sorry I havent responded . But hope you are all well and safe.

Elektragaaz to Release “The Synaesthetic Picture Show Now Playing Part 1”

Cabin Fever, so apropos living in our cabin here in the Catskill Mountains of New York ! check them out


Digital EP Available on AIS Records (City Hall/The Orchard) on Feb. 12

(New York, NY) — #Elektragaaz are a global live and virtual instrumental group featuring a mix of live and electronic music with most of the members based in the New York metropolitan area but headed by a mysterious and intensely private Frisian composer using the pseudonym of Poppo Redband but usually referred to as simply Redband. The group exists in both the real world and in a fictional universe, a volatile blend that can be bewitching or bewildering or both. The music too may leave listeners both bewildered and bewitched, drawing on such far flung influences as classical music, hip hop, rock, club, techno, pop, dance, film noir, comic books and video games– all precipitated by Redband’s neurological condition which causes him to see music as well as hear it.

As an introduction to the world of Elektragaaz…
