Jay & Silent Bob aka Jason Mewes & Kevin Smith are getting old like most of us. However unlike most of us these two are talking about it every week via their podcast on the Smodcast network and it is a work of live genius! Created as an intervention for Jasons real life drug addictions this weekly dose of personal back stories, slanted social commentary and belly laughs has been keeping me well entertained since its launch in summer. Perfect company for cooking in the kitchen and long journeys which is what the holiday season is full of right? So now is the best time to download all the episodes via Itunes or whatever, load up your portable player and catch up, be prepared to look like a crazy person laughing out loud on public transport snooches!!
I have to give my Lady Lina ultimate props for this post as it was her good self that put me onto David Sedaris. Back in Berlin during one of our many sessions she lent me his book Holidays on Ice which had me laughing out loud on public transport, simply genius observations perfect for the festive season! As soon as i had finished i wanted more and headed to the nearest book shop to get my fix, ’When your engulfed in flames‘ was even better than the first and again i LOL’d my ass off all over South America usually at 36,000 ft.

I wrote this song for my mum, the strongest woman i knew throughout my teenage years. Originally the backing track was more dirty, early hacienda style and it was that which evoked the memories which helped me to create this top line and lyric. Some of you might have heard it as it was released last October on Nocturnal Groove, funny i never knew that..anyways the original demo is after the jump for, enjoy!
