    Been gone so very damn long...

    Hullo all. Sorry to have been absent so long. Been on my travels and never seem to get round to using web cafes, nor do I own a travelling laptop. Added to which I had to cope with a grisly, or possibly gristly, knee problem that eventually required surgery (in Washington, by a Chevy Chase-lookalike doctor, who decorated his consulting room walls with Xmas cards from Bill and Hillary.) Hope you're all well. Great to hear Prototype is coming along so well.
    Four years ago, I was determined to do my little bit to try to break the hegemony of Amis and his permeant influence in the world of British letters and literature. One of the high-profile arts strands on TV should make a detailed film about Mike, I thought. I was a TV journalist then and even got as far as speaking to the noble panjandrum Melvyn (Lord) Bragg about it. No-one seemed that motivated. Surprising? Well, the Establishment's the Establishment. Anyway, I got as far as writing an abstract of a possible film - of which, the other day, tucked away in a notebook, I came across a hard-copy version. And I found that it's still here on my PC.
    So if anyone's interested, I'm going to try to reproduce it here, over in the Enclave. Run the film in your head. Thoughts welcome. Apologies for any presumption, cliches or crap, Mike.
    Love and blessings.

    To be fair I had my share of programmes about me until the 80s when fashions changed. Melvyn was always nervous of my beard. Not kidding. Last time I saw him he made a beard gesture with his hand and apologised for not recognising me... I've had the beard since long before I first met him! So it goes. I actually feel rather comfortable being unfashionable with such people. Both Iain Sinclair and I feel a bit weird, of course, when our ideas are lifted whole, but maybe that's the price you pay for the kind of freedom we value.
