A word from Phil

EXT. ON A STREET CORNER – HALF AN HOUR BEFORE (CHAZ on his mobile) CHAZ Those top hats, don’t know what their on–Yeah, we never know what they actually do, let alone in the state of Pennsylvania. They honestly think that my cousin’s going to come round this year. They’ve got another thing coming to them, What with Gladis, his wife–and the kids. (there is static coming from the other side) FADE


(PHIL is writing on his blog.)

PHIL (V.O.) They have me doing this again. Last year, it was New York City Mayor who dropped my cousin and he died, but I have a plan—one would say a very cunning plan, see, last year, it was the mayor the year before that and all the stuff leading up to it and why do they have to see my shadow in the first place what is it about déjà vu and time. I’ve had dreams of killing him with my own set of guns. nearly clubbed him I did. I mean how In the world somebody mistake that. It doesn’t make sense. Then, if that wasn’t enough I went to the upcoming Premier of Hail, Woodchuck! Which was put together as some kind of stunt, I don’t know. (Indignant pause) as I entered the cinema there was an idiot in a mascot, that looked exactly like me. I could have snuffed him. I really didn’t recognising him or who I was seen since I am pretty small. My son founded a production company called Trap ‘Em productions it deals with documentary filmmakers and the killing of people who dress up as groundhogs for groundhogs day. Anyway, things haven’t changed with the gobblers Knot. It’s déjà vu all over again. I either seem to see my shadow or I don’t see my shadow. Though there are other things to look forward to like the groundhogs ball as well as the wine and cheese Festival over across the river. I just wish that people wouldn’t dress up in top hat and tails for the occasion it bores me. I guess now the only thing is to celebrate my soon-to-be retirement in March is when I start my siesta and when all the tourists look at my home and think “ what a life Punxsutawney Phil has. What do I think: I think they should never have come.


” I still don’t know what I was waiting for/And my time was running wild/A million dead-end streets/And every time I thought I’d got it made/ It seemed the taste was not so sweet/So I turned myself to face me/But I’ve never caught a glimpse/.Of how the others must see the faker/I’m much too fast to take that test”

this is my first appearance on AMCPRESS&CO the blog site. I can promise you that more is coming. Its been very busy, round here.

today is a very sad day indeed….

He was one of my heroes.  David Bowie was. Bloody hell,  he’s gone. I first got introduced to him via Labyrinth. I was 9. I remember that a babysitter put it on and literally changed my life. His influence and scope of range is and was fascinating. For myself having a disability and having someone to look up too was key, I was and am a very private person however this is one of my idols in a world of chaos and pain (seizures and ADHD) was someone I listened to when I was younger, I am just very happy I lived in a world while he was alive. I said to myself, now here is a man who takes his specialty seriously and people were saying to me “oh you can’t be like that” Meanwhile 6,000 miles away and in New York and all around he was changing the world.

All I have to say is thank you STAMEN for changing my life.  I will miss you loads.


Redhood’s Great American Thanksgiving

Posted: November 27, 2014 by redhood225 in Holidays, Uncategorized

Well, well, well – – it’s Thanksgiving – everything a bit of all right. The bus ride up from New York was full of winter wonderland. Oh, that’s right! I never mentioned I’m in New York for Thanksgiving, on a technicality you could say . The night previous to this I was with my family. We were celebrating my mum’s birthday. She turned: seventy! I can hardly believe, head of the UN and so much accomplishment. The previous night, I went onto American Greeting I thought it would be funny if I made the UN say happy birthday to her, realizing I could not do that I came up with the second-best option which was, to my credit, probably one of the best greeting cards long form I have ever done. Before I display what I really wrote I should preface this by saying that it was from a dog’s perspective. With that in mind. Read on!

The first card read:

Here are today’s top stories. All of them arf-ul. Except for one. On capital hall history is being made. Political pundits are ramping up to make this the biggest push ever. President Obama is near his breaking point. First Lady Obama has decided to host the first international birthday party for everyone who was born on November 25th. Which includes the presidential Pardon of the turkey. Additionally Vice President Biden is fanning down the President because of this news. Earlier this morning German Chancellor Merkel called Ban Ki-moon to halt all activity. on the ball. Black dress returned. More in next segment.

Thus in the next room, evidently I heard the chime of all things. Me Mum who was reading the missive. She was laughing. Gut bustingly laughing. Fell into pieces on the floor. That’s what I call good greeting card.

Then, a second chime. The second card was read aloud.

Here are today’s continued top stories. German Chancellor Merkel called Sax fifth avenue to have the returned black dress re routed to Germany. SSI payments rise since 1989. Prime Minister Putin bans all French bread coming from Paris, First Lady Obama has decided to host the first international quilting completion. The First Lady is requesting those quilters with Brothers sewing machines to apply first and singer sewing machines to apply last. The Presidential Medal of Freedom is awarded to the head translator of the UN.   This just in the turkey has not been pardoned. The Supreme Court bans the sale of every turkey whole foods and Trader Joe’s are on shortages. Stocks continue to plummet.  

I thought, if I could do it halfway around the globe, why couldn’t I do it in my bedroom flat in London. Both are mitigating places to make an American birthday card. No less online than in person. The fun continued. She laughed more. I’ve never seen somebody laughed so hard in my life. It brings a lot of joy to me not that I can’t express emotion I can just not easily, The thing works in three cards, you have to do it in three cards. Not four or five but three. Always work in threes.

Enter the third card. It went something like this. The dog is still speaking. It was Scottish which made It all the funnier.

This just in Merkel is waiting for her serving of escargot somewhere in midtown. The UN has resumed working. The Presidential Medal of honor has been awarded to the head of the un hospitality committee instead of the head of the UN. and we have something coming over the desk now! It reads:

HAPPY–BIRTHDAY—M!    My family is american and is is in Pittsburgh not bad for an ameri-brit. I’m here.

In Pennsylvania with my girlfriends family. They’re great people.

My normal family is in Pittsburgh yet I can’t help feeling that somehow someway were all deservedly to be thankful for something or other.

Don’t get me wrong, but; the Thanksgiving turkey,  But the pardoning of the turkey, that the president has to see this animal be pardoned. That it must be pardoned  is bollocks to me. I keep saying why must a turkey be pardons it doesn’t make any sense whatsoever yet it happens every year just about at the same time–weird, isn’t it? Alan Sherman the american composer and might as well have written a Thanksgiving parody. Yet he retired from that a long time ago. Hopefully, be the one to write the second parody. Meanwhile. I’ll sit tight. And wait. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!  I sincerely mean it. Just wait until Santa arrives. The holidays have officially begun.

Until next time.
