17 Jan 21 Well, the sailign was appropriate re physical terror and now the boat REALLY needs her 12 months overdue refit. And I'm off the internet yet again now, en route for Innamincka in the desert, a ghost from my past come knocking. Only for a few days though.
12 Jan 21 Gone sailing with grandson, two nights. All teenagers should have a few days of physical terror in their lives.
11 Jan preparing for 2 nights on boat with grandson, must take food...no internet...!!
Must take vodka...
11 Jan Just back from a mad dash to daughter in mountains, in case borders closed yet again. Left Monday, returned to border Sunday: as of Wednesday no entry without a number which is supposed to be sorted 7 days before use! Sigh.
My partner, colleague, defender and wife still vaguely wishes for a quiet and uninteresting life. It's the one thing I'm powerless to give her.
Tim Fatchen: nice, polite, quiet, writes serious and often soothing music, good dinner guest.
Flying Tadpole (songs marked [FT]): anarchic ratbag, writes irritating and often nasty satirical rubbish, good kennel cleaner.
You're clutching (smaller) money and you want to hear cleaned-up tracks from earlier FAWMs?? Go here:
Or Spotify: all the albums are there, search on Tim Fatchen or Flying Tadpole
FAWM and 5090 are the main part of the top row of CDs. Songs are available on iTunes, but it's cheaper via CDBaby and besides, I get more.
Broke? Starving? Some songs are on
And free videos on
Looking to license music?
No songs by this fawmer (yet).
Welcome back too! Mushrooms?
Hahahah effect, Tim! I said suede-effect! I’m not the bloody Queen of England 😂
haha. Yeah, the blues just don’t speak to me! I think it may be attributed to my tendency to focus on the music and not the words. I do have an admiration for it, but I am not drawn to it. Luckily there is something for everyone! Best wishes to you!
Hey Tim, let's do this!
I know!! I don’t even know how that happened! Anyway, I’ve never reported anyone and don’t intend to. Strange. Carry on, I suppose.
I think that I might have reported you for something inadvertently!! sorry about that! I most certainly did not intend to report you for anything other than being a pillar of FAWM.....so, sorry about that!
Thanks for the welcome, Tim!
No worries. I gathered you had stuff on your mind, stuff to do and etc. 😀 You'll have a great FAWM 2021 though! So, there's that! 😀
I'm game! I'm trying to get a set up this weekend so that I'll be able to record. I've moved recently and it's a temporary arrangement with limited space, but I'm going to make it work.
Hi, Tim. Wishing you a great FAWM!
Thanks for the welcome. Looking forward to all the musical shenanigans 😀
Hello, hope all is well with you.
Hello again! Have a great FAWM!
Hello Friend!!! Happy FAWMing!!
Might do a copyright or two this year, if you see anything you like. Have a happy one.
We've returned and we've come to have some fun! Dig it!
Man, Tim....Lost at Midnight Blues is really great. So thought out and well played. It looks so fun to play like that.....and well dressed! Best wishes to you this fawm
Enjoy being and have a great FAWM.
You’re humming my tune!
In case there was any doubt, that ku was all ‘started’ by Muscidae. I had to fly with it, then I got in deep! As we do.
Oh, moving...that’s a nice thought. That would be the real ‘flight’ response. My boxes are just from hopeless hoarding. I haven’t been able to sit down at my piano for a couple of years. I’m pretty bad on my own, but we’ve emptied out two parents’ homes, and couldn’t part with all of it, and now I also have all my remote working from home clutter in the same space. I think it’s where my freedom went too! Hoping to rediscover it this FAWM. It’s great to see you here, as always.
It is SO good to see you back! I, too, am grateful that we're still around on this weird and wonderful planet! Happy FAWM! 😀
Me? Lurking?? Never!
So I nearly killed my back with bad ergo when the telework started. Finally I found a bodywork guy - namely an Advanced Rolfer. He spent 2 months training me to understand that gravity will hold me up if I just un-knot myself and let my butt be on the chair and my feet be on the floor. So I'm actually still coming up short on gravity, but I'm learning
Hi, Tim! We are doing this AGAIN : - )
I'm with you brother. I'm all about escapism this year. Looking forward to hearing what you come up with and I'm looking forward to holing up in my studio. Cheers!
Hi, Tim. Thank you!!! I appreciate that! Apparently I need more coffee this morning haha! Happy FAWM 2021!! 😀
I figured! 😀
- And, I'm sure it'll be spectacular as usual.
(I see you're a mod now... when dat happen? So, I need to be PC polite to you now aye! 😀 )
Oki dok -- have a good time. (I was hoping for some electric violin to parley with, but oh well, how it goes.)
