STATION IDENT: Happy New Year

Happy new year. May this one be kinder, funnier and more interesting than the last.

Photo by my good friend Brian Wood, who’s away with his family tonight. My family’s asleep, and I’m sitting here with whisky in the glass and Michael Cashmore’s SLEEP ENGLAND on the speakers, brushing the last traces of a brief snow flurry off my shaven head, and thinking about the future. Annual tradition, maybe, or perhaps just something coded into my bones. It’s the only way I know to break the new year in: to sit in the quieter part of the night and think.

This is Warren Ellis dot com, broadcasting into 2010.

  1. That photo sums up my feelings for 2009, and 2010.

    It’s bleak, but I say bring it! Glad you’re well again Warren, I wish you and yours a fun new year.

    As for me, I don’t what I’ll do, but hey, “the future is inherently a good thing.”

    If I quoted you incorrectly, I apologize.

    Happy New Year everyone.

  2. Well, happy new, you old bastard. We just passed one hour in here in Boise, Idaho, and nothing tragic has happened yet. Keep doing the marvelous things you do that make our lives feel more interesting.

  3. Happy New Year Mr Ellis. Hope things are just as productive in 2010. Will miss the Bad Signal, but will watch with interest on the rss feeds and website. S x

    …you and me both, dear sir.

  5. All the best and a productive new year!
    Wonderful choice of music (I adore Cashmore’s Nature and Organisation project as well, which perhaps would fit better to the apocalyptic end and rebirth of a year).
