It’s been on the news that some people have the same name as the latest royal baby. I think that’s amazing. It’s got me wondering …
Maybe there are other people out there who have the same names as other other people! Imagine! You could be out for a drink with your mate John, just heading to the pub, and unbeknownst to you, another person with the name John might be walking on the other side of the street when someone else entirely could call out to them, “John! Oi-oi!” and John – your mate John – would be all like, “What do you want?” and that other person, the one who’d gone “John! Oi-oi!” would be all, “No, that’s John over there,” indicating that other person with the name John, the one on the other side of the street. “Oh wait, you’re never called John as well! What are the chances?!”
I suppose that’s just wishful thinking, though. We’d have heard about it by now. On the news.
Here’s a song (a long one that gets a bit Crazy Horse-y) about that time I met a ghost dog in Arkansas. True story, though there was alcohol involved (courtesy of Chateau Aux Arc).
From the album Seeing Ghosts. Please buy it. I’m skint.

Gradually chipping away at technical issues which have prevented updates to the new(ish) Mister Hughes website and, as I’m just finding out, some here as well. The main website needs a lot more doing to it but one thing that passed it by and this blog too was the most recent Mister Hughes & the Crow Bone Chorus video, Catch a Break. Check it below but be warned: it has a spider.
Normal service will hopefully be resumed soon, with actually improved service soon thereafter.
Maybe it’s a Burns night thing, I don’t know, but the muse struck. This poetry stuff’s a doddle – I reckon there’s got to be some of that sweet, sweet Arts Council money in it, at least.
CD copies of the new album, Seeing Ghosts, now available! The ideal Xmas gift for that unspecial someone you’re really not that bothered about.
Also available for download and streaming from the same link as well as iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and all that.
