Thoughts for the Dazed is a fancy that I have been playing around with for many years now. I love the process of reviving long-dead Victorian black-and-white illustrations by combining them with modern text to create something new and funny.

The hope with
Thoughts was to produce a pocket paradox that would run daily in a national newspaper or journal. I ran up a large batch of samples, but it is another idea of mine that still awaits a paying slot.

A selection of those samples is shown here. I also tried them as short stings for radio shows, complete with ukulele accompaniment, with an equal lack of success. There's one for you to hear underneath these.





Here is an example of the musical version. Just click on the red link:
