I have always hated hospitals.

You find yourself at a loss when observing 

The final embodiment of

a life well lived.

Impaired and grounded

A lucid spark lingers, you can see it,

But don’t want to stare.

Be polite.

Am I there for him or for me?

Anecdotally, I‘ll be glad to have gone.

Upon reflection, it was good that I was able to go.

That New Years Eve spent on a deathbed with

Intravenous resolutions rigged up to 

Flush through a packed-up liver.

The £1 Kodak batteries, unopened,

Lie next to his Walkman. 

I wish the doctors could fix us as quick:

“Great Granddad’s playing up and warping his words”

“Replace his batteries son, there are some fresh ones in the TV remote”

Today the blood was sucked from his thumb

Nurses suspect his veins know the score.

Every slurred syllable rattles along

As if gargling with words made of gravel

He perseveres to share a story we’ve heard before

Experienced, remembered, rehearsed and retold.

Never missing a beat (unlike his heart)

We laugh as we witness the punch line land,

One last time.

“Right, well, best be off”


How do you say goodbye to a soul

You’ll not see again?

So definite, so final, social graces are obsolete. 

I settled for, “good to see you,

Take care”

Hoping his journey didn’t end there. 

Plucked up the courage to finish poem I started the day of his passing, in memory of my Great Granddad; 23rd September 1921 - 3rd January 2017
Part two is officially underway.
Who's excited?

Hey Followers,

[Link: thetotallypointlessfilmblog.wo…

Hope you are all well. Sorry I haven't been around so much recently, have had a lot going on. I personally know I haven't been doing as much I could do with this profile and I hope to be back with avengence soon!

However, seeing as you have all been such good supporters of our project here on DeviantArt, I thought you may be interested in another website that has been running for a while and is starting back up as of today.

For all you Film and TV fans out there make sure to check out thetotallypointlessfilmblog.wo… for a bunch of (hopefully) interesting and entertaining articles!

Much Love




Peris-Productions's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United Kingdom
Peris Productions was originally named after our first year university accommodation. The original production company involved a number of flat mates, but now there are only two left standing. They call us Jonnie & Steve. (Christian names, Jonathan and Stephen)
Allow us to break the ice- by writing each other's profiles;

Jonnie: An absolute perfectionist, it is difficult sometimes to truly understand what is going on inside his brain until the final product is laid out on the page. Usually the one to spur on and begin the projects with the original idea, the production company seems to work well at developing sites like this, due to conflicting and intersecting influences that we both tend to argue about! Hence why the majority of truly original and excellently presented deviations are attributed to him - whereas the manga stuff, mostly mine :P. Whilst talented in many areas (damn him) I think the perfection in drawing is easy to see (look left). OH yeah and, two brothers, lives in cambridge etc.

Steve: I find the best way to describe Steve is, as a blind hermit once said to a chicken he thought was a sponge, by describing what he is not. But why would I do what is best? Besting is for chumps, and Steve isn't a chump. Oh, well - appears I AM describing him by what he's not. But only that one time, Steve doesn't like jokes that last too long. Dammit. Steve isn't doing any course but Media Studies, he doesn't not like movies, I would go as far as to say if the hole in the centre of DVDs were a little bigger... well, you know where I'm going. Not a bad guy, not a rubbish artist, not obsessed with COD, oh wait - he is. But most importantly he is a great collaborator. The Wiseman asked if he'd understood all of this, to which the sponge replied he had absorb it all. (It was never a chicken. Always a sponge.) The Wiseman smiled.


Peris-Productions has started a donation pool!
12 / 636
As we mentioned in a previous journal entry, unfortunately due to the amount of Uni work we have at the moment, the number of drawings we have submitted, has rather diminished over the past couple of weeks.

We are disappointed about this, but plan to be back with a vengeance sometime in May with new deviations. The problem is, we would really like to come back stronger than ever with a premium account - but being the poor students we are, we don't really have the money to be supporting the premium account for a while.

This is where we need your help, our faithful followers, please spare us a couple of points to help us reach our goal - it would mean a lot to us.


Jonathan and Stephen
