Bland On Bland – Velvet

Bland On Bland – The BookThe theme for this week’s JVG Radio Method poem is “Velvet“.

Good theme this week. Jon had an unexpected moment of “linearity” and picked one that actually had a link to reality ( unlike some weeks). The band in this week was “Velvet Bloom”, so a nice simple choice.

We spent a good amount of the segment discussing urban green spaces and how lucky we are and the writing process I use for the poems. As I said a good week.

Bland On Bland – Rare Things

Bland On Bland – The BookThe theme for this week’s JVG Radio Method poem is “Rare Things“.

Not sure what prompted the theme this week.

Possibly the fact that Dan Warner had been doing Warner Corner on the show for 20 years and Jon wanted to somehow celebrate the rarity of that or Jon was just being perverse as usual.

Either way ( and I am assuming here it was the former reason) it was a good theme to work with as you will see.
