You are definitely at www.hydeparknow.uk!

Who am I? I am a disabled, deaf and autistic guy. Yes! Go! Scram! Run away like all the others do! 🙂

Some of you might be thinking, how dare we become bloggers. Yes exactly! Its a job for normal thinking hearing speaking people only… that’s why almost ever blogger you meet and every vlogger you meet or know is normal!

And people do get angry just because I exist. Exciting things such as disregard, discrimination, outright lies, even violence, to make sure I am fully aware of my oppressed placement within a society that is just so bent on normality – and ensuring the more abilities one has the more likely one is to been seen as one of the fitter ones. According to Darwin’s theories Geoff Tech has a better survival rate than I…

Have you ever seen a newsreader with one arm? One who is blind? Thought not! We are the face of the public the public does not even wish to see in public…… 🙁

Anyway in terms of the about, of which I have more than said enough, of the blog itself, its been under some other names previously and has no doubt mutated into a new ID. The changes were prompted by issues with the old hosting. The databases were sooo fucked up. No matter what I did they remained fucked. So I said sod it, I need to move the blog elsewhere. It was thought a new name was also appropriate.

And Hyde Park Now? Why! Well why not! Its there isn’t it? I mean seriously, if no one wanted Hyde Park to become the name of a blog they shouldn’t have given the park that name in the first place! Hey Henry the Eighth you should haven’t put a bloody royal park here in the first place either! Can’t you lot ever do these things properly? FFS!

As for the ‘now’ it isn’t actually a thing because now disappears as soon as one identifies any sort of ‘now.’ In a sense now refers to the past, that which has gone by. Its like passing a railway station at speed. It was there but it is now receding into the past. Its somewhere but not within one’s immediate grasp. History isn’t within one’s immediate grasp either thus ‘now’ seems to be an appropriate label. The billions and billions of many nows all disappear into the past and the only way to illustrate these nows is to reconstruct their history as best as one can. Funnily enough these reconstructions also become past histories too! Thus the ‘now’ is always the-to-be-history that will form part of humanity’s baggage of whatsits, whatevers and whatnots.

Therefore Hyde Park Now is about all those nows that are most definitely in the past 🙂

    Greatly appreciate your enlightening work
    Grove Rd power station, recalled well: actually owned by Central Electricity Supply Co, not METESCO. Both used Peachey & Reilly, architects, hence the misunderstanding?
