Animated short LSF Film Challenge
Oct 23rd, 2011 by Entropy

Several members of The Spurious Collective have been hard at work making a  short film for the London Screenwriter’s Festival Film Challenge 2011.

The challenge was for filmmakers to make their own version of one of the two winning scripts from the Screenwriting contest. Both scripts were about the London riots of August 2011 and both set human relationships against material things. Group members Entropy, Trixsey and Dusty, who were involved in the making of the short, which they wanted to be a bittersweet animation with a bit of stark realism thrown in at the end. We think they did a pretty good job!

And you thought YOU loved cats!

“Hand-Span/Brain-Pan”
May 31st, 2011 by Entropy

Hand-Span/Brain-Pan”

What is me?

As I sit, my elbows

resting on the desk,
eyes tight shut,
head-in-hand,
I am struck by
the narrow
width
of my temples
between my thumb
and forefinger.

Is this all I am?

The entirety of
my being contained
within a
hand-span?

I could live without
ear, leg, appendix,arm,
bowel, fingers, tongue,
hair, eye, tonsil, breast,
kidney, tooth, lung.
Not one of these things
is essentially
me. If it was lying
on the desk before
me, I would no more
feel that I was
there, instead of here.

Yes, there is more
to me that
keeps me living, but
all that is me thus
is contained within
my hand with
some mere warm offal,
attached.

And yet, if I had not
a hand,
if I am not
also hand,
I would not
know this;
could not
measure,
my brain-span
thus.

What is me?
Am I hand or
am I brain-pan?
Perhaps I am
both, and
neither.

 

Poem: “Tea”
May 19th, 2011 by Entropy

“Tea”

Where would I be
without that blessing,
the humble
cup of tea?
It can revive
when I am tired
and restore serenity.
And the sacred offer
to make the tea
is a ritual
in this family.

The warmth in a mug,
full of hot
sweet love,
never ceases
to amaze.
And the daughter
who makes tea
for me
is always due
some praise.

Poem: ‘Nothing’ #Napowrimo
Apr 30th, 2011 by Trixsey

April is National Poetry Writing Month which The §purious Collective have entered in order to write a poem a day for 30 days throughout the month of April 2011!  This poem is by Trixsey:

A poem for day 30:
Nothing

I cannot describe this man 

I try so hard

But I never will

Everyone is different

Not all people like his songs

But I do

To me

He is funny and precocious

I don’t think of him as ferocious in any way

But these words mean nothing

I try and try to choose the right bundle of letters

To choose the right setting

To exclaim my idea at the top of my voice

But no one else will understand

Only I know

Words mean nothing

No one will understand

So even my words mean nothing to me

Poem: ‘Fairy wings’ #Napowrimo
Apr 29th, 2011 by Trixsey

April is National Poetry Writing Month which The §purious Collective have entered in order to write a poem a day for 30 days throughout the month of April 2011!  This poem is by Trixsey:

A poem for day 29:
Fairy wings

Exclaim in joy

To hear the stories of these toy little pixies

In their quaint world

Where the fairest splendour will not depend on the looks

It is not the kind of attractive like in the fairy-tale books

Fairy wings

Fluttering through the trees

Fairy wings

Muttering to each other about sweet and innocent things

They jump around the room

Prancing over the cracks with their old and sooty boots

They don’t feel scared without duty

They don’t feel impaired without beauty

Fairy wings

Poem: ‘Music’ #Napowrimo
Apr 29th, 2011 by Trixsey

April is National Poetry Writing Month which The §purious Collective have entered in order to write a poem a day for 30 days throughout the month of April 2011!  This poem is by Trixsey:

A poem for day 28:
Music

A gentle tick of a nearby clock

The loud clash of falling crock

The music rings in your ears

A spoon tings against a clear glass

A small flower swaying in the grass

The music rings in your ears

A piece of string tied in a small knot

A silly bird whistles a reply to the warm windy breeze

The music rings in your ears

Poem: ‘Dubious liar’ #Napowrimo
Apr 29th, 2011 by Trixsey

April is National Poetry Writing Month which The §purious Collective have entered in order to write a poem a day for 30 days throughout the month of April 2011!  This poem is by Trixsey:

A poem for day 27:
Dubious liar

Igneous temper

Tedious tell-tales

What is desired?

What is the outcome?

Dubious liar

Skulking around

Silently sneaking on the ground

Snooping under you feet

Stooping towards you with an intrusive grin

Dubious liar

I would like to show you my best side

But you are not the kind that it would reside near

I would give you a chance in an opportune moment

But you would scour for a tuneful scandal

Until you found that certain handle to pull

Dubious liar

Green leaves

The colour of life

The colour of nature

Green leaves
