"The sea of materialism is at flood tide and all the nations of the world are immersed in it. It is my hope that the fish will rise to the surface, so that they may behold other wondrous aspects of creation; for the people are like unto the fish swimming in the deep – ignorant of the rest of the universe. May they be transformed into birds of the air and soar in the nether atmosphere! "

New toon SHELLSHOCKED is track of the day on The Guardian’s music blog X
I’m going to go on the TV show The Voice
But im not going to take my whole body
Just my head
The stage manager Toby wasn’t sure at first
But when I have my lipstick on you don’t notice the lack of arms and legs as much
I’m going to sing a song about being wiser and finding myself
It will be more poignant as my body isn’t there
People gasp as I am carried onto the stage and heavy silence falls as I look out into the crowd
A nervous first breath and then I start to sing
My voice sounds like a perfect blend of all three Bee Gees. The moustache is audible. I nod my head from side to side and raise my eyebrows.
I miss the high notes repeatedly and the song is exclusively high notes.
Falsetto tumbles down and breaks into a bassy rumble
The crowd are on my side though, they whoop and cry in delight at my endeavour
Then after the song and the weeping is over they will ask me where I am from
And I will tell them I’m from a small town that’s not far from a bigger town and ask for my shoes.

Marmite is a dark art.
It has a distinctive taste and people who eat it describe it as
'savoury dog oil',
'the sap of the dog'
and ‘dog treacle’
Spreading it on toast is a relatively new phenomenon as Marmite was originally used to oil the rusty fingers of chess players.
Chess is a dating game. A really boring dating game, which guarantees no further dates.
