...''So where was I exactly'' ? Behold, ''The Blog of Biddiss'' returns

Hello good folks,

Tis been a wee while since I last put Fingertips to Keyboard to write on here!

The last time I wrote I recall going through a Chaos-Life Crisis and was considering all sorts of things mature and normal such as taking up Bowls and robbing Sperm Banks!

Well, I'm glad to tell you that the inner Captain Chaos is still lurking inside me and seems to be forever ready to strike silliness at a inspirational whim. There has been many a time this year when one has been tested in all sorts of things that life throws so that inner Mr Chaos has been there to provide the laughs when the chips have turned a dirty shade of Brown!

Anyway, there have been many topics that have given my self satisfied sense of bloated opinion, an urge to write on here and share these Golden Nuggets of Wisdom with you but hey, please feel free to write in with any subjects you would like me to comment on in the hope that I know what I'm talking about!

So, for now, I shall write off but I will be back very soon!

Until then,

See you bye!

Lots of Love,

Captain Chaos

Captain Chaos: The end to all things Chaos?

Sad news reached my earholes today regarding the passing of the great Dom DeLuise who kept many of us mere mortals amused, in particular, as his legendary role of the mighty 'Captain Chaos'. He will be greatly missed by his follows and fellow Chaos students!

RIP Captain!!

Is this the end to all things Chaos ?

Q: Do you possess an inner Captain Chaos? : Is it time to settle down into full-time responsible Adulthood if you have not already..?...The Chaos theory explained from my humble point of view.. well, kind of explained:

Well, as the sub title suggests.. I'm finally looking into the possibility at abandoning the long held mantle of one's own inner Captain Chaos as it seems to have been a slight staple in one's life recently!

So...Imagining the possibilities of a chaos free existence and joining the ranks of the responsible grown up could create many things in your life:

*A Nice responsible job selling insurance ? A nice grey suit with matching briefcase and a lovely thick side-parting to match?

*Drinking only Tomato Juice at weekends and sharing a crafty sherry at Christmas ?

I'm looking into this astounding possibility at abandoning the cape of Chaos for good and looking to act in far more responsible way than I have done sometimes owing to that bad philosophy I carried in ''taking fun seriously''! I can give you many an example of frolics which have Chaos written over it, be it encouraging a pal to jump on the back of a moving Fire Engine with me to drinking one's own body weight in a mammoth yet stupid and pointless 4 month booze bender'' -All bad things kids!!!

So is Biddiss finally on the verge of out and out maturity and wanting to take total responsibility whilst earning himself a nice new pipe and slippers in the process ?

Does anyone want to buy the well worn chaotic cape of Chaos from me, used previously by one careless owner ?

Am I hitting a very early mid life crisis point or has long overdue wisdom knocked on my door ?

Does anyone know of a good Neurosurgeon who may wish to investigate the neurotransmitters in the Biddiss Brain to establish if indeed, a new found circuit has finally engaged the mature part of his grey matter ?

If you have the answer or indeed wish to talk me out of this new sense of existence..then do get in touch...otherwise..don't!

Next week, I will be discussing the merits of knitting and it's place in Cornwall society and the scandal of the Frant Bowling Club that actually lets folk under 81 play at weekends!

..& on that blue rinsed Bombshell

I Bidd thee a nice day until the next time!


A very bored Biddiss

It's only Thursday & the signs of Flu 'Fever' have arrived!!


Hi folks, this is just a wee Thursday entry of some of the slight hysteria already mounting over the impending Flu virus that is about to or has, hit our shores here in the UK.

On my way home last night, I spotted two commuters already with their masks on which was quite unnerving to say the least and maybe it's a sign of things to come within the next few weeks. WHO knows ?

Watching the WHO press conference last night, they have upped the level to 5 to state that the pandemic is imminent!! I'm starting to question my original thoughts that this would not be as serious but the escalating media frenzy and doom laden comments are sparking the doubts but in the end of the day, flu virus's are and have always been highly unpredictable so it's anyones guess how strong this could be. Could this be the virus they have always stated would one day come and wipe out some of the population like the Spanish Flu managed early last century or could this die out as soon as it came ? My optimistic head still, states the latter!! Don't panic kids, just wash your hands and avoid kissing dodgy looking folk like the plague!

It's in times like these though that we should all appreciate what we got in life and if you don't have it...go and get it!! Life is precious

& on that cheery note, I'll be back next week with a brighter and wheezier blog...I hope!!

Peace & love


...& Now for something completly different:

(S)'Wine Flu,Recession and Big Brother Britain..& it's only Monday!

What Swine gave me flu?

It's Monday 27th April & it it seems that the world is about to be wiped out by a mutating Pig virus!! It does all sound pretty hairy though it's best remembering that the Avrian 'Bird' flu virus was meant to have wiped the world out nearly two years ago with all the media frenzy so its best to keep that in mind. Humans are a tough old bunch & a lot healthier than in the days of the Spanish Flu...just trying to keep an optimistic head on one's shoulders ..until the dreaded symptoms hit could hit and then Bad MANFLU appears!!


It's only Monday and yet, All I'm hearing is that the main core of the reccession is finally here..sitting in my office, it seems most of the folk are hearing of nothing else from their clients and the outlook looks shite, well at least for now, even my job here is about to come to an end so its a pretty depressing thing searching out for work which is scarse on the ground but battle through we shall!!

BB Britain:

I've read today that our nosey Big Brother of a Goverment are still not satisfied into prying into our lives further ( under the guise of terrorism protection) so that want to keep ALL records of anything we say or write in personal emails or phone calls!! The fact that goverment agencies can do this anyway if they are looking into suspect plots is justified but this plan they have for normal folk is just a step toooooo far and it has Chinese styled Communism written all over it!!! Very worrying...

Well , thats Monday covered, lets hope the week gets better eh...& for the Sun to rear its head again!!

All the best

It's been some time but Biddiss is back on the Blog

Hello folks, it has been a wee while since I ventured on the Blogispere to air any news!! Subjects are a little thin on the ground this week until I start putting on my thinking cap back on so I may take this opportunity to have a blogout this week with what I've been up too recently!

Well, having spent a little time away ,I've been busy finishing off the draft for a children's book character with which I have received some encouraging news from a publisher but its early days yet so I'm not going to get too excited though the signs are looking good as what I have done has apparently not been done before!!! I'd love to tell you the scoop but I have to leave it for another time when I get the clearance to do so...I shall keep thee posted

In other news, have been recording as well as writing some new material which may come out before the album itself as I'm looking to do a mini-album of acoustic songs. One of the new tracks 'Takes-1-2-know 1' is a stomper and I will try and get that released online within the next few months if everything goes to plan...

In other news, I will be doing a little stint on a programme on BB3 which I will be recording next month...more news about what it's all about soon...

So aside from that, not much else to report!! Hope you all are doing well and remember kids, don't give up to giving up, no matter what the buggers put you through!!

& on that bombshell .. I'll speak to you very soon

Much love

The thin line of Interpretation & mis-interpretation:Reading into what's there and not there: The Biddiss Debate :

Hi Folks.

Hope you are doing well and enjoying the 1st throes of Spring..(while it lasts)
I've been a way for a wee while, dealing with all manner of things that have been currently occupying the thought strands of Mr Biddiss!

The past few months alone has been rather quite surreal & rather exhausting all in one fowl swoop though in other aspects, it has also been quite creative artistically thinking....

....Which neatly brings me onto the subject of interpretation and mis-interpretation!

For eons, it has been academically accepted that Men and Women sometimes tend to communicate differently to one another. Now, when there are fraught emotions in there too with the opposite number, I think the communication angle can get very haz-hazard and all manner of things can be lost in translation and interpretation in times of stress.

People, it must be said, do tend to be like magnets and it's no wonder the world can be in such a state as it is when pride takes place before the inevitable fall, no matter what fence you sit on!!!

...& on that Bombshell...
I'll be seeing you...with a less fraught blog next time!!

Gone Fishing.. theoretically speaking!

Hi folks,

Well, not really much to report this week so I'm keeping it rather brief!
I'm just currently recording whilst in the midst of creating a new project which I'll reveal more about at a later date plus currently, plying my reserve energy into another situation and hoping on a wee positive breakthrough very close to the Biddiss bosom!!!

Well that's all, said it would be brief ..which is a new thing for me writing on this blog:)

Keep tuned.
keep well
look after yourselves!!

Peter Cook plaque :It's up..thank f**k!

...& Finally!

After a year & a half, from coming up with the obsurd idea of honouring one of the worlds greatest comedians , to trying to arrange the day only to have had it hijacked halfway through which caused a split between myself and The Heritage Foundation who organised the official bash,along with Westminster Council. The plaque with my lovingly put inscription has finally been nailed to the wall (not in chiswick-Derek & clive fans know what I mean:) ) ..

I can finally put to bed an episode that has been anything but fun!

Well, thankfully, this little saga which entailed a couple of deranged online stalkers ( who are still now mailing me with there bile (we know who you are) has been put to bed, I can move on to pastures new finally! I'm now looking to recharge the Biddiss batteries and plow on competing the album and start getting back into normal well as licking my wounds :(!!

I shall be back soon with a new page and a new start!!

Has it been worth all the strain ???

No, not really but I have no regrets,, aside from a few from the ones who mattered!!!

All the best

Hero one minute, 'Baracked' the next?

Well, It's 'Barry' Obamas' 1st day in office and already he is making plans to stop the rot with regards to the illegal war trials which is a good thing for democratic license. His main headache now is what happens next?

I'm rather quite excited at his appointment as I have been rooting for him ever since murmers surfaced about him nearly 3 years back!! I hope that he stands by his word ( or at least tries too) as the world sorely needs a change for the better and with the amount of power and prestige he is carrying currently, it's vital to maintain that air throught out his term(s) ...otherwise, there are going to be a lot of angry merchandisers to answer too lol !!!

I, like many millions, have hope and faith in this guy and the world very much needs that after the bastard Bush years !!

Well, that's my polictical rant over with :)

I'll be back soon with other thrilling titbits to witter away the dark winter nights :)

Take care and keep the faith !!

It's 2009 :New year, new start and I declare the recession denied!

Hi folks,

Firstly, a happy new year to you all and hope you all had a nice time over the holidays.

I'm quite relieved xmas and the holidays are now over ( why does everything seem to slow down 2 months before xmas anyway-what a waste :) ) .

I'm itching to get back into the swing of things as last year hit a few snags ( made redundant last August through the 'recession'). Despite all the doom and gloom that the media are dishing out daily, the only way through this I believe is to deny it's here and just plough through it until we're at the other side. I personally am on a mission this year alone to acomplish what I have set out to achieve. This includes finishing off that bloody opus debut album I have been slaving over for 2 years.. I finally can see the light..but an awful lot more work needs to be done before it's finished...It'll be worth the wait though.. When you (hopefully) get to hear it then you will understand where I'm coming from. It's no white stripes set up with one guitar and drums.. It's got everything running through it.. it's like having producing Star Wars on the damm thing!! In the end, the songs are sounding fantastic but I set myself a challenge to do something a little different here and there with underlining soundscapes which makes it sound like a punkier version of 'OK Computer' meets 'Hysteria' meets 'Dark side of the Moon' .... a huge challenge and a bit too over ambitious but It's way too late to go back on it now so will all hear what I'm banging on about :)

Peter Cook:

Well, I'm looking forward to Feb 15th owing to the Peter Cook plaque going up finally. I'm looking forward to seeing folks faces when they read the inscription on it.. I hope I'll make the late Mr Cook smile.. hopefully, there will be a few chuckles from those who walk past the plaque and view it.... I'd love to tell you what's on there but that would be spoiling the surprise-just to say that it's never happened on a plaque before so it's a 1st !!

Anyway, not much to add for now.. quite busy arranging this and that for the record and getting my butt into gear now I have the chance too !!

So for now, it's a cheery bye from me and It's a goodbye from you !!

Keep smiling & remember...

2009 will treat you just fine !!!

All the very best!
