Musical Ripples

by admin - 22:46 on 25 August 2010

Gary's decision to flounce out of the band, nearly a year ago, continues to have repercussions.

Axe hero Jim reports that, as a consequence of the wasted months that followed, Matt is now so disillusioned with rock and roll that he's on the verge of early retirement. Adam is similarly disinclined to seek new musical employment. Jim's still keen but has so far found little to exercise his musical talents.

I'm not ready to sell the Marshall and the Fender just yet, but I don't feel the same urgency to join a new band that I did after past break-ups. Blame it on the love of a good woman. And pine martens.

My fingers will begin to twitch again some time in the future; until then I have the Pentax to amuse me.

However, I turned down the opportunity offered me by Jim: to photograph his stepdaughter's wedding. It may be only a small do, but I don't want to ruin the big day by producing sub-standard snaps. That's far too much responsibility.

The Chief Gnome also has opportunities for would-be press snappers, for two vacancies have arisen on the team that fills the gaps between words in the newspapers produced at GNoME HQ. Even if I were qualified for the job I wouldn't be interested. Many others are, though – I'm told that eighty-two applicants are eager to submit their portfolios.

Anyone would think there was a recession happening.
