“SINKING (Written while listening to The Cure’s song, ‘Sinking’)” by JTK.CA

“SINKING (Written while listening to The Cure’s song, ‘Sinking)” by JTK.CA

Lying on my bed,
Looking to the right and up
Through the window in the wall.

Lying on my bed,
Watching clouds pushed downward by the wind
Within the window frame's revelation.

Robert Smith sings, "I am sinking,"
As the clouds float lower and lower
Within the wooden frame,
Never to be seen again
From my limited point of view.

Robert, the sky is now an empty blue.
If the cure for emptiness is music,
Can you remember “Anything at all”?

“EMM GRYNER Concert Photos” by JTK.CA a.k.a. NudistPoet.com

“EMM GRYNER Concert Photos” by JTK.CA a.k.a. NudistPoet.com

Guelph Youth Music Centre (gymc.ca) has a great theatre space, upstairs. I snapped these 3 photos at a phenomenal EMM GRYNER (EmmGryner.com) concert there. Doubly "phenomenal," as the word refers to both Emm and her concert.

I shot these photos several years ago, back when MySpace was the ubiquitous social network everyone was on. Even before the concert, I had been MySpace Friends with Emm Gryner and also MySpace Friends with RoryGrubb, who was her opening act that night. After his music set, I introduced myself to him as "NudistPoet" on MySpace. He immediately recognized my moniker. Later, during Emm Gryner's performance, she asked the audience, "Are any of you on MySpace? Because Rory just told me NudistPoet is here." Sitting front row centre, I immediately raised my hand, saying, "That's me." She laughed and asked, "You're always so open?" I said, "Yes, I like being the centre of attention." Then she said, "Well, thank you for wearing clothes."

To hear the amazing sonic soundscapes of Emm Gryner,
go to
http://EmmGryner.com

A few of my favourites are:

Acid - from the album 'Public'
Blackwinged Bird - from the album 'Summer of High Hopes'
Symphonic - from the album 'Asianblue'
Empty Hole - from the album 'Goddess'

And when Bono, the lead singer of U2, was asked for five songs that he wished that he, himself, had written, he answered with one of his five choices being "Almighty Love" by Emm Gryner. It's on Emm's album 'Summer of High Hopes,' which I really enjoy having in my CD collection. I agree with Bono that Emm Gryner is definitely worth discovering!

“THE SCAR-SPANGLED BANNER” by JTK.CA

“THE SCAR-SPANGLED BANNER” by JTK.CA

O say can you see
By the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hail
...”
While our unborn are screaming,
Whose broad stripes and red scars
(Through the perilous fires
Of our murderous hearts)
On our country are bleeding?

In the past we did care,
But we haven’t been there
Since liberty died
Along with our heirs.

So when will we come back to the truth of our name,
The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave”?

"My brother Steve a.k.a. NUTTY PILLOW FACE" by JTK.CA



In his youth, my brother Steve was a great model for me in all kinds of wacky photos like this one. He's wacky in some more recent shots too, but, in his early 10's I really went to town photographing him.

"My brother Mike a.k.a. THE ELK MECHANIC Takes Flight" by JTK.CA



I've been a photographer since around age 10.
I am JTK.CA DroidBoy,
and attached is my photo of
my brother THE ELK MECHANIC
learning how to fly, circa the 1980's.

THE ELK MECHANIC
is an anagram for
MICHAEL KETCHEN.
Mike introduced me to
http://wordsmith.org/anagram
which forms anagrams out of
whatever you type in.

MICHAEL KETCHEN
also turns into
A CHICKEN HELMET.

Unfortunately,
my name
JONATHAN TAD KETCHEN
is very difficult to find
a decent anagram for.

The best I've found for
JONATHAN TAD KETCHEN
is
JOHANNA HACKETT DENT.
That will be my female pen name
if I ever get into writing
romance novels ;-P

Enjoy the photo!

While I was over at my parents' place for supper, Mom gave me a little gift --
my class photo from junior high school (circa 1981, circa age 13).

It was also around that age when I learned to solve Rubik's Cube®.

Here is a video of "me" solving Rubik's Cube®. My solves average 2 minutes.

“FLARP: My Superhero Alter Ego” by JTK.CA

“FLARP: My Superhero Alter Ego” by JTK.CA

In the early 1980’s, at a junior high school costume dance, I dressed up as my superhero alter ego named FLARP. Flarp wore a blue Adidas® jogging suit with yellow stripes down the sides; a green bath towel for a cape; a neon orange hunting cap; and a toy machine gun with sound effects. Obviously (with the toy gun) it was a different era. I aimed my toy machine gun at three girls, shot them with the machine gun sound effect, and they proceeded to dance with me. FLARP was luckier with the ladies than I’ve ever been as myself.

Several years later, my brother Mike gave me a Whoopee Cushion for Christmas or my Birthday. The reason was that it was branded with the name “FLARP!®” Cool coincidental naming! Perhaps I’ll replace my alter ego Flarp's now-politically-incorrect toy machine gun with FLARP!® Self-Inflating Whoopee Cushions and FLARP!® Noise Putty, both made by Ja-Ru, Inc. However, since I’m also a nude model, they’d probably want nothing to do with me. I’ve also thought I could replace the toy machine gun with harmless, tiny Valentine pillows I’d throw at people, symbolizing a superhero who just wants to fill the world with love. I’m crazy; just go with it.

When I was around 12, in Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada, another kid, with whom I attended Vacation Bible School, gave me his puppet, SHERMAN HERMAN, as a gift. I'm not a ventriloquist, so, my mouth does move when Shermy talks, but I don't care. Fun is fun.
