I Blame Time

 Julie Atherton

I Blame Time –  featuring Julie Atherton as Patrizia Gucci



Abandoned by luck
No one to turn to 
But the stars above
The ice in your eyes
But I don't blame you
I blame time

I'll blame time
I blame time

Locked in my mind
Fighting my demons
I didn't hear your cries
So hate me
Berate me
Say what you want
But I won't blame you no
I don't blame anyone I don't
I don't blame me
I blame time

I'll blame time
I blame time
I'll blame time

I see the long years ahead
Tearing our good will to shreds 
But one day this madness will pass
One day you'll repay
My love

I blame time
I'll blame time
I blame time

Cold and cast out
But nothing will shake me
From this rock of love
I'll wait here
And hold to the last
No I don't blame you no
I won't blame anyone I don't
I won't blame me
I'll blame time

Mrs Gucci


Once there was girl
Who was rich and she was poor,
Her mother was a laundress
Her father bought her pearls,
The world owed her a living
But it never could be hers,
So the beginning of this story is
That poor rich little girl.

The Silent Child



The boy was looking for his voice
(The king of crickets had stolen it)

deep inside a water drop
the boy was looking for his voice



I don't want it for talking
I want it to make a ring
that my reticence can wear
around its little finger



Deep inside a water drop
the boy was looking for his voice


(Meanwhile in the distance
the voice was dressed up like a cricket)


Translated by Peter Jukes from El Niño Muda by Lorca

Live Tweeting

Over the last few years I've created some attention with my live coverage of the phone hacking trial in London, the most expensive and longest concluded criminal trial in British history. There are various accounts and articles about this on the web, including a radio play. My Twitter feed can be found here, and a collation of evidence from the trial, and all my live tweets, can be found at my Fothom Wordpress blog. There's also a Flipboard magazine and a Facebook Page. My Klout ranking is here.

More Journalism and Books

Various journalistic articles of mine are scattered throughout the web. There's some kind of portfolio at Muckrack. The most extensive reporting is for the Daily Beast and Newsweek, but there's more at the New Statesman, the New Republic, Aeon etc. I have two non fiction books published in the last year: The Fall of the House of Murdoch, available through Unbound or Amazon, and Beyond Contempt: the Inside Story of the Phone Hacking Trial, available via Canbury Press or also on Amazon. I am currently contributing to a new site for open source journalism, called Bellingcat, and advisor (along with Sir Harry Evans and Bill Emmott) to an exciting new crowdfunded journalism startip Byline
