Hi! my name is John Harrison and this is my second website which I decided to create in 2010. I decided to dedicate a separate website, for those only interested in my writing and creatice activity (my other site being http://www.bsafe1stalways.com/). This site contains a bit of information about me, some videos and audio of my poetry, live performances and other work. I will be updating it all the time, so please do keep stopping by. I will be trying to keep this site simple. Its a way of organizing the different sides of what I am doing and, I hope showcasing a sample of all the types of work I do with my poetry, writing and creative side. I don't want to overload this site because there are links to all the places where my work can be seen on the links pages. And there's already lots to see with these links, and that's one of the purposes of this website. On the 1 - 5 Spoken Word pages you can see my poetry in YouTube videos (which I do because its easier to share online). On the Live page you can see footage (or hear audio) of me performing. On that page you can see I have read my poems at some rallies in London in 2009, 2010 and 2012, read my work on the radio and at other venues in London. And on the Songs page, you can see and hear some early songs I wrote, this is a new personal but very public project. And so that's a quick overview of the site and its intentions. So this is my work at a glance, an introduction to myself and if you like it, you will know where you can see more. Thank you again for dropping by, and do come back soon.
I am trying to update this site as we speak, please bear with me.
I hope the site will show how creative we can all be, no matter what we have been through. It will show how art, poetry, music and other arts/ creative outlets, are the peoples voice and no one organisation or set of people own it, or represent it more than THE PEOPLE. I want to encourage you all to be yourself. "Don't be discouraged by anyone, your the original you." Good Luck, in all you do.
There is more to come soon.

Hello people, I've been working on a new project (beginning of 2013), let me tell you a little about it. IF you have not seen Monty Python's Holy Grail, then you might not get it. Basically in the film, King Author was tasked to cut down a tree with a herring, all I can say at the moment is: I am doing a sort of spoof comedy sketch in the vain of Monty Python, from that one line in the film. I'm doing three videos on YouTube, the first is a short comedy sketch spoof from that line in the film, second I will be doing a spoof trailor for the film and I will also be doing a "making of" video spoof, as they always seem to do nowadays.
I am making paper mache props for this film as we speak, I'm also making a costume. I have made a Shield, Sword and Sheaf, Knights Helmet, Flag pole and flag, and the costume itself. There are a couple of other things to make, and I am painting and finishing off the other bits too. Its me, paper mache props and a camera... with some cardboard and a few bits of material... oh and some wool :) The budget is just above zero pounds. I will upload a photo or two soon and some quick videos for fun. till then take care. Meet Sir Boing below, played by me. I will have a sperate page on this site soon.
