Les Fleurs du mal

August 6, 2009

Le Soleil

Le long du vieux faubourg, où pendent aux masures
Les persiennes, abri des sécrètes luxures,
Quand le soleil cruel frappe à traits redoublés
Sur la ville et les champs, sur les toits et les blés,
Je vais m’exercer seul à ma fantasque escrime,
Flairant dans tous les coins les hasards de la rime,
Trébuchant sur les mots comme sur les pavés
Heurtant parfois des vers depuis longtemps rêvés.

Ce père nourricier, ennemi des chloroses,
Eveille dans les champs les vers comme les roses;
II fait s’évaporer les soucis vers le ciel,
Et remplit les cerveaux et les ruches le miel.
C’est lui qui rajeunit les porteurs de béquilles
Et les rend gais et doux comme des jeunes filles,
Et commande aux moissons de croître et de mûrir
Dans le coeur immortel qui toujours veut fleurir!

Quand, ainsi qu’un poète, il descend dans les villes,
II ennoblit le sort des choses les plus viles,
Et s’introduit en roi, sans bruit et sans valets,
Dans tous les hôpitaux et dans tous les palais.

Charles Baudelaire

Conrad Murray may be in for a bumpy ride

July 24, 2009

The dollar signs were probably flashing in ‘Doctor’ Conrad Murray’s eyes, in true Tom and Jerry fashion $$  $$ , when he was appointed Michael Jackson’s personal physician/ drug dealer. It soon turned into a farce of Disney proportions as we imagine MJ stretched out on the bed, doped to the eyeballs and the good old doctor trying to remember his basic first aid, CPR, and failing, again……

Now the police are on step away from issuing a manslaughter charge against him, as he  is the target of a manslaughter investigation into the singer’s death. A receipt for a search warrant shows that police have found : 27 tablets of the weight loss drug phentermine, a tablet of the muscle relaxant clonazepam, two hard drives, notices from the IRS and a controlled substance registration.

If there is any professional doctor governing body in the USA…….I’d be asking a ‘cardiologist’ why he had diet pills in his medicine cabinet…..wouldn’t you?

And why are there still no other pictures of him available except the smiling Bill Cosby one????

Who is Conrad Murray

July 15, 2009

Is he even a doctor at all? I mean could I call myself a doctor tomorrow if I felt like it? I have been working with someone this past year who claims he has five degrees and almost a PhD and I don’t believe a word of it, so I suppose anything is possible…..a doctor of shiteology perhaps…….

Murray’s licensed position remains unclear. He is not board-certified, graduated from  the Meharry Medical College, Tennesee in 1989.   His clinic was closed down in 2002 and his partner had his medical license revoked.  In 1993 he had been declared bankrupt.

Not really the CV of a man you might want to be administering powerful anaesthesia to a billionaire with an insurance policy……or maybe……

....and why is this the only damned photo of him?

Goodnight

July 11, 2009

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Full fare-don’t lose your head over it!

It all got a bit too much for a London cabbie yesterday…….the driver in his 30s, tied a rope to a lamppost and the other end around his neck before driving off from the spot in Southwark, southeast London. His body was found by police slumped in the car – with his severed head yards away. How does anyone even think about killing themselves in such a way?? I mean did he sit down one day and think, ” Mmmm, that lamp post looks good. Now if I just attach my head to that, drive off at speed, my head will fall off. Yes, that’ll do it.” ?

What went through his head before he threw his head? What were his last thoughts as he hit the accelerator?

God- did he have a passenger in the back? News reports say, ”Officers are keen to determine if the dead man was a genuine black-cab driver”……. why are they going to charge him with damage to council property?

Should you go under the knife?

A few months ago I had some filler put in, just to hide those mouth lines that were so cute when I was 20 and 20o years later aren’t so cute……but that’s as far as I’ll go. I really would like to have lipo done and a boob lift but something inside of me keeps telling me not to be so damned lazy, put the donut down and get on the Wii fit. Fillers, ok- you can’t diet those laughter lines away, but surgery is another matter. Sometimes it can be fatal and people just don’t seem to take that into account when they go in and sign the consent paper….

take for example, the wife of footballer Colin hendry, who has just died after a botched cosmetic surgery procedure.
