    So, why the choccy bunny?. cause it’s a feel good thing? YES for me. stimulation of the taste buds n brain? who’d have thought, choccy over cues,caps n eggplant. they’re pretty good straight out of the garden into a lasagne n yoghurty thing. have you thought bout getting a myna bird trap? then agagin don’t know what to tell the kiddies what happens to ’em after you’ve caught ’em.do you hide the truth or tell them like it is aka TTB.
    I’m a realtive newcomer to TTB
    although the other half has been an avid follower for………….who knows. your[with n without TP,MWP,PK]
    influence?, music,ideas, comments are always stimulating n provoking even if I/we don’t agree. I feel something has been lost through moderation but fully understand the reasons behind the decision but is it time “to love your enemy”? i don’t think I could do it!
    I feel for “a former fan”, probably feeling a bit misunderstood and persecuted taking your beliefs as a personal judgement when I guess you haven’t met that person. It’s hard sometimes to accept peolpe as they really are even if they don’t live up to your own expectations or beliefs. So be it.
    We’re trying to restore some balance of peolpe/nature in our neck of the woods it’s a constant battle neighbours errant dogs chasing away killig our beautiful wabilys,roos, wombys,birds, frogs n other thingys.
    Is there anyhting on your don’t like list that’ll change if you make the effort? do you want to?
    it’s drizzly our water tanks are full the crickets are noisy, birds singing in the bushes life is ok

    You have almost a gay obsession with George Bush which is quite interesting. An old man living check to check and full of bitterness. Let it go kilbey. Sadam hussein gassed hundreds of thousands of people but you mention bush. The chinese are currently involved in some of the worst crimes against humanity ever known. Why no mention? I believe you have a bit of jealous thing going with the united states. Even married one of our locals from hillbilly country. You are funny kilbey. George Bush had balls. You don’t. That is why you insist on censoring comments. What a fucking old washed up hypocrite. Go milk the under the milky way cow some more and maybe you can get your messed up teeth fix. What a wanker you are. And you mr world peace continues to refer to Japanese as “japs”. What an insult. Why is that Kilbey. A tribute to your old dad who was also a war criminal? You are correct, there is evil in the world. And it must be confronted. Thank you George Bush. Maybe we should have just laid back and waited for thousands more of US citizens to be killed a la 911. You will simply delete my comment and move on which is ok. Even if you published it no one else would have time to comment due to your comments must be approved policy. You are a bitter sad old man.

    Hi Steve, love your blogs. You correctly mention European invaders throughout history. How come no mention of muslim invaders etc. White guilt perhaps? New president obama has just sent 21K more troops to Afghanistan. No problem with that? He is not war criminal? Arabs are committing genocide in Darfur but that is not on your radar screen? Since the start of the conflict, about 450,000 people have been killed, and 3,000,000 people have been displaced. Shouldn’t the Hague take up this matter? Don’t eat chicken but smoke marijuana, even though countless people are killed each year in drug trade. Dont’ like christianity but often mention vishnuu who you state creates millions of world in his sleep. Why would such a powerfull god even need sleep but I digress. Whatever gets you through the night. Your comments must be perused by you before public consumption. Censoring others comments who might disagree is the ultimate form of ego. Al Gore refuses to debate global warming. Now that the last few years have been colder it is now called climate change but still no debate. I wonder if you analyze any of what you say or if you simply take the intellectual lazy route of simply parroting the left side agenda. Be healthy and don’t eat meat and do yoga. Then fill your lungs with marijuana smoke because obviously that is what vishnuu wanted us to do with our body. Perhaps you became enlightened during your decade long smack habit. May our lord and saviour Jesus Christ look upon you with mercy at your day of judgement my friend.

    Hi I’m steve kilbey, genius. I believe in spiritual things and despise mankind although a few times a week I practically beg for donations from my handful of sycophants who cannot think for themself. Davem is a vegan. Surprise! Why does the incredibly spiritual country of India have nukes? It is amazing to me how you think your limited beliefs are the end all and be all of thought. But then again you did write under the milky way so obviously you are tapped in to the true source. Take a few college courses where you can be challenged. Surely bondi has a community college you could afford.

    I don't like traffic lights, unnecessary bureaucracy, loud, pumping dance-music, simon cow-hell, any tv show with celebrity in the title, the taliban, airports, queuing, marzipan, boy racers-(playing loud, pumping dance music) & cheap lager & gyms.

    Of course anyone who disagrees with you is silly. Your censorship benevolence is really something to be admired. Thank you master Kilbey. Drop the weed and clear your mind. There is a whole wide world of thought out there, although, gasp, some of it may disagree with you. I actually feel sorry for you. Try an experiment. Spend more time with your family and make one less mediocre cd. That would be the spiritual thing to do.

    Comment moderation can be looked at one of two ways:

    1) Steve Kilbey is a censorious jerk. Wah. >:(

    or

    2) Chances are pretty good Steve Kilbey at least glances at every comment this way. Yay! 🙂

    Each of us gets to choose whether we see it in the best light or in the worst light. The choice we make says a lot more about us than it does about you.

    Yes Davem, clearly you are unbiased opinion on anything kilbey. haha jesus Has kilbey ever said anything that you don’t one hundred percent agree with?

    And eek, the fun of the comments used to be how we could all interact with each other in real time. Knowing steve reads every word is not really the point. But then again eek much like davem you are not exactly the most unbiased opinion on anything kilbey, will all due respect.

    The beginning of knowledge is when we admit we know nothing. Pretending to be authority on any subject is futile. OK you hate Bush. We get it. How much time has to pass before you can let it go a bit. It has sort of become a crutch. the world is not black and white. Not one bad word by anyone regarding islamic extremists? Why?

    hey you anon who posted above, don’t get so personal, its a blog man not the final word. a diary, fleeting thoughts and random bits of prose, a creative notebook and journal from an artist who is sharing with his fans, yeah fans, that is, people who admire and enjoy the artists work. it’s nothing about being a sycophant. everyone here has their own minds, lives and own art and stuff, we just like to get an insight into the time beings perceptions, thoughts, talents and musings and yeah sometimes they are unsavory and confronting and it’s okay not to dig them. it’s okay not to agree. after all if we all thought the same way then what would be the point of keeping a blog.
    what i think is perhaps bad taste is to just wank on in some boring uncreative oppositional and destructive way, making accusations and jumping to conclusions and attacking the man. fuck off if you don’t wanna be here, or voice your opposition, but at least be gracious about it.
    and for your information i’m not defending steve’s politics or beliefs but i defend his right to say it and express them however he sees fit.

    Agree wholeheartedly with Capt Mission. This is just an Easter rant, a page in a diary. Not the final word or the final solution. Not an authority. Not the truth, the whole truth & nothing but the truth. A rant. A healthy outpouring of random thoughts. Not some vitriolic, personal attack, on any one person, as you yourself have lowered yourself to. Apologise! Go to the back of the class & count bricks.
    And i did say, in my hastily, but considered response: that i hate the taliban & that my friend, includes all extremist, religious, nutters.

    islamic extremists? yep, despise them too. muslims are so misunderstood. me included. i remember here after 9/11 the rush to judge all american arabs. hypocritical i was because despite knowing i shouldn’t be, i was highly suspicous of american arabs/muslims. how could i/we not be after that awful attack carried out in their gods name? christians have (and still do) the same. i have always had a hard time reconciling how something that is supposed to be good for all men be at the same time responsible for so much misery. organized religion and their sins make very little sense to me. i prefer to try and find my spirituality on my own.

    Read the post above and you’ll see right wing nutbags have no other message than fear and hate. Why not mention where the 911 highjackers came from and the humna rights record? and the business relationship with the bush family? BTW bush has spent more chinese money than all 42 pres before him combined. Prohibtion does cause some violence due to the fact it’s illegal. other than that the use of marijuana is a vitimless crime. willing sell and willing buyer. No wonder you guys have to listen to AM radio shows with a hypocrit, glutton drug addict for a host to get your daily dose of fear and hate.

    for all the reich wing americanazi’s
    you lost, the real Americans spoke and its nice to hear that you guys are still pissed off, it makes me laugh and smile that you people are bitchin and moaning and pulling you hair out.. Left to right what a joke.. you people are inhuman and the world is a better place with you people on the periphery.. SK can speak his mind and that is his right. I dont have to agree or disagree.. thats my choice.. I dig eggplant…
    I just hope that you guys swear off coming here…
    But you’re not really in your element here.. I mean lets be honest.. the whole world hates people like you… cuz your in line with evil government period.. parroting? haha you people voted George Bush twice.. and now all of the sudden your wondering why your breath smells of backyard vaseline.. Islam is a religion that heralds from a land that held the cradle of civilization.. and is percieved as antiquated and extemist and terroristic within a scheme of unmaned planes that bomb innocents.. but as long as it aint you.. It alright to Nuke em’ yeah real american..haha Dont get me wrong there are some mad mad issues with Islam and engagin them in diplomatic discussion is necessary.. but we started a crooked war becuz of Bush and now we deal with these arrogant shmoes like you.. lounge chair terrorists.. you people voted all this to happen.. you extremists are alike.. Christian Muslim same fanaticism.. search your small vacant little heart..
    Truth is you Libertarian/Republicans are faking that youre really american.. you guys are white supremacists.. point blank and I wish good ole jesus would just welcome you guys to jump off a cliff..
    so yeah.. Its like children that need to be taken care of and Obama insanely has chosen to do the Lords work and chill the whole world out.. except for you all.. no you people probably send death threats and call him all kinds of american words.. Yeah this land has been cursed ever since and I dont mind that at all.. you see you need to cram a couple more steak into your sorry fat asses and hopefully you’ll all keel over real soon..
    So go and scream somewhere.. poor you.. your way of life is over.. bout time I say.. I wish you people never came to our continent.. peace and love… wink and if you wanna take it outside I’ll gladly do the Lords work and beat the shit out of you.. trust me.. anyone??

    Well, Well, Well. Here we go again. The ebb and flow. Steve just let the fuckers comment w/o having to read them all. You know who is sane and who ain’t. After a year I figured it out. You got miffed at me once but I still came back. I even bought more of yer stuff. The comments are more entertaining with these idiots. Let them spout. It’s an interesting counter-point and most times has nuthin to do with what yer blog says. I like it when you rant. I like to disagree with you as well as agree. I like it when you verbally trip. I like it when you go boffo! It can be some crazy shit. It can be anything from one day to the next. I say fuck them Steve! How ’bout another psycedelic blog ’bout now! Really fuck ’em up!

    Obama just authorized killing of some somali pirates. What a war-monger. I would put him up there in the pantheon with hitler, stalin, and bush.

    Anon at 6:41 PM — there are loads of other places to “interact with each other in real time.” No need to do it here.

    And yep, I actually like Steve. I don’t always agree with him, and shockingly, he doesn’t always agree with me (although he should! 😉 ). But I still like and enjoy him.

    One thing we disagree on is the Bush issue. We both despise the man, but I think that prosecuting him is ultimately pointless. Much better to spend the time, money, energy on repairing what he fucked up than to waste those resources exacting revenge. To move forward you can’t always be exclusively focused on the past, and Dubya, thankfully, is the past. Same deal applies to 9/11. It’s time to stop trying to exact revenge for the victims of that day and try to help make a world we can all live in. Besides, if one is going tit for tat for 9/11, the tits (“them”) have lost many times the people as the tats (“us”), so we should be in deep shit. Well, unless you think “those people” are worth less than “us”.

    Not one bad word by anyone regarding islamic extremists? Why?

    That’s pretty much a Duh! thing. Seriously, does anyone like extremists of any kind? That extremists — including Islamic ones — are a bad thing is pretty much a given. And it’s pretty pathetic to defend Bush with “well Islamic extremists are bad too.” I imagine even Bush would say “no, no, please don’t defend me by saying ‘at least he’s not as bad as those guys.'”

    Loved the easter blogs, killa. Hope you got piles of chocolate eggs. And that someone hid them around the house for you.

    While Elton hasn’t put out a decent album in 34 years… he has a few good tracks under his toupe.
    Much better than George, Billy, and Axyl. He was at least cool enough to play with T.Rex and John Lennon. Not bad for a cabbage patch looking bloke with chubby fingers.

    sinse everyone on here seems to have an open mind, and seems to say what they feel i will add my thoughts like them or hate them, their mine alone and my opionion i guess in the end thats what matters now doesn’t it?

    Its hard to write about people you like without sounding like the rest of the herd, ”hero worshiping” and drooling over ones life works.

    it almost seems anything you can or will say will be praised or shot down in flames, so i guess knowing this i will say this.

    I dont believe the church were really ever given a fair go where their earning potential was concerned, well when you have a certain few fat pig promoters who we all love now dont we who count their profits before the artists even get a sniff, then this is a crying shame.

    what can be said here that already has not been said, someplace or somewhere on anyday you can choose.

    the great Jeremy Oxley (the sunnyboys) resides in ipswich queensland a forgotten lost soul, now ill he is just another forgotten person who gave so much and got so little back for his works, and the pigs who fleeced those guys, know who they are.

    i dont need to name and shame most of you know who i am talking about.

    an if you ever read this post unnamed rich man/men, i hope you never fall from grace as your fall will be the hardest of them all.

    we the struggling artists know what its like to have little and produce lots.

    YOU ON THE OTHER HAND the rich oportunist, RAPE AND PILLAGE THE GREAT WORKS AT THE BARGAIN BASSEMENT PRICES, THEN TRY AND MAKE A KILLING SELLING TO THE WORLD AND IF YOU CANT SELL THEN HEY YOU CAN ALWAYS BLAME THE ARTIST NOW CANT YOU?

    air play and air play alone long enough will get them buying your albums and this weapon the so called shit industry use’s to make or break great artists

    On another level sometimes a person gets chances and oportunities in which they squander all their wealth, or whatever it was that they made away.

    wether through addiction of whatever sort or whatever vises their have.

    many people in this position, seek to blame all else rather then looking where the problem started, which was namely themselves or their lack of insight into where they were heading.

    Ive done it myself so yes iam also guilty as charged lock me up and throw away they key i hear em say.

    Drugs while it can make you feel and create great works can also destroy as well nothing iam saying aint known not to mention the lives left wrecked by these addictions, the innocent bystanders the families and children who are left on the sidelines to watch their loved ones float away into their own universe i only ever did pot hash and bootleg whiskey and now only do the whiskey on ocasions so iam not trying to preach ive been there too on a lesser degree but i know if i had continued down the path i too was headed id not be here today.

    what have i learn’t be humble as possible, love people even if their comments bore you sometimes, these people were the ones who gave you the artist your income as small as it might seem.

    we are not all bad and not all of us request the song/s that bugs you the most sk.

    I dont know you that well, ive met you once and that once it was hard for me to feel the same way after the meeting, i guess it was an off day for you who knows or who ever will know?

    i expect my comments to be knocked flamed etc etc etc etc i dont hero worship no one, if an artist treats me well then my opionion will be a lasting one, if not i guess its kinds hard to feel the same way ever again.

    Sk’s work is amoung some of the most brillaint work you will ever hear, but i feel his distance in person, he is some place we cannot be or get to, and iam sure he sometimes feels happy its this way.

    all i can say more to this is sk, we aint all that bad to smile at occasionally, we the loyal ones who supported you though your younger years and now not everyone rips artists off

    at least i never did.
