Bland On Bland – Nasty Bosses

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

After last week I think that Jon maybe just making it all too easy. “Nasty Bosses”, well next week it will be overbearing dictator but that’s unlikely, I can’t see him being that self-referential two weeks in a row.

So let’s have as much fun with this as I can before he notices and I get the sack. “Workers of the world, unite!”

Bland On Bland – Made Up Words

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

OK, now this one would be a no brainer you would think. Jon has just handed this one to me on a plate.

As a person who makes up words for songs and poems as a living, I have this in the bag. AND THEN…

And then Jon says “Not made up like that you silly bugger. Fake made up words like politicians and advertisers use”

Well, that as they say took all the wind out of my sail and it all started to look like hard work.

Do you know how hard it is to invent words?

Do you know how hard it is to write when your bloody spell checker is going off every second word?

Here such as it is, is the week’s effort and for the first time this year, we are visiting the neighbourhood.

Enjoy.

Bland On Bland – Medical Advice

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

JVG has been having a run of interesting themes this year, delegating out the work. Did he seek (da da da dum) “Medical Advice over the break or is it more likely that he is just being slack?

Hmmm, I think we can all guess the answer.

Some more observations on internet experts.

Bland On Bland – Going Crazy

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

An excellent theme this week as life seemed to have imitated art and gotten away from us all.

But a lot of fun to write and Ed obviously had a lot of fun with the backing.

Bland On Bland – Remote Places

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

Week 2 of the show and Jon choose another excellent theme for me to play with. I must say I am suspicious, it’s all going far too well. I know that the themes are being selected by Dr Pump at the moment but even so…

Hey maybe I should suggest “Suspicion” as a theme, I wonder what he would say.

Bland On Bland – Historical Figures

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

Just where did the holidays go? And to make it worse according to JVG we had an extra week off.
Couldn’t have? Could we?

Maybe it was the lack of an actual summer? Maybe it’s the deja vu of finding ourselves back in lockdown again.

Anyway rather than be predictable I decided to start the year off with some prose and use the theme, which uncharacteristically was a ripper, to annoy JVG straight out of the gate by making it a LONG story. He hates it when they are long.

All in all, it went rather well for the first one for the year.
