to plan it
or let it all happen
to figure it out
or suss it in a flash
what would someone else have done
art
music
life
which one
make your move
be yourself
it suits you better
think faster
slap it on
take it away
erase it
trace it
follow it wherever it may lead
add stuff later
fix it up soon
throwaway idea
the magnum opus ,day-eye
the mastah peace
the statement of intent
knock em out, boyo
serve it up hot
make it look easy
take anything from anywhere
plunder the past
anticipate the future
open the present
say something worth saying
not too obvious
not too devious
not to even mention pretention
blog in a fog
note in a coat
cmon you take over here for me
hold this world on yer shoulders, soldier
bear the brunt, you runt
back and front
gather and hunt
a garden of verse is growing wild
metaphor flowers blooming in lake poignant drive
an overgrown temple of song
samson pushed at those columns
samson in the columns looking for a profit
samson …says delilah
why dontcha let me cut yer hair, you big strong man?
and samsons locks come undone
half the man he was
his lovely black tresses on the pillow as he slept
snip snip snip my love
oh i bring you my scissors to trim and shape
now you weak brute
unmanned with a little haircut
they chain him to the columns and laugh
and delilah what did you get from your betrayal?
gold?
position?
revenge?
oh its too late
baby
its too late
your ex is bringing down the house
oh whatta surprise
down on him self
the whole biblical night comes down
on him n her
and all the other cats
who happened to be there
anyway
here
its saturday arvo
glenny will cut my hair
i am already weak
so no fear there
i will dedicate this saturday night to all the people out there
cheers
kilbey imbibes
drops trip
lights bone
doffs garments
lights candles
lies back on bed
feeling warm sea breezes
inviting more proems
into this foggy world

    I wish I had the autocratic autonomy to close all the slaughterhouses, hunting fields, trappers’ snares, vivisection labs, bullgights and dogfights.

    Great performance of Keeper by SK at the 2006 Vegan Festival. All music fans need to buy “Dabble”. “Time To Say Goodbye” is a poignant,dreamy and touching album closer.

    Hi,

    I’ve just joined GetUp’s global campaign calling on world leaders to make binding targets to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

    http://www.getup.org.au/campaign/APEC

    Leaders of 21 nations are converging in Sydney for APEC, and knowing their countries currently produce half the world’s greenhouse gasses, they won’t be able to avoid seeming attentive to climate change. Problem is, our own Prime Minister wants to join with George Bush and Canada’s Stephen Harper in making it just another talk fest about ‘aspirational goals’.

    The citizens of the world want real greenhouse reduction targets, not more hot air. As well as their combined 500,000+ written petition, GetUp and their global friend Avaaz will present a spectacular visual petition at ceremonies in Sydney, Melbourne and the Great Barrier Reef – and your picture can be on it.

    Thanks!

    So, let me get this right – you’re going to get a haircut while completely out of your mind? Good luck with that. Hopefully someone else is looking after the kids.

    Life, Reality. Surprisingly, I’ve been in other creative projects; how dare I find out!
    David Lynch
    Gore Vidal
    Another writer didn’t even change my name! Hey, bring back my character…we miss me.
    You know how these writers can be.

    my ‘ex’ as you call it
    I glanced upon him in ’89-’90 in Switzerland
    No, he’s not the beautiful one I knew then…how I wished he were.
    When we actually met once, over a decade later, that was alright.
    Although it was a mistake
    Really, I just wanted to be friends…and yeah, it’s too late for that.
    I’ve tried to make light of it
    PV please try not to get so frustrated…do you really want to make yourself the mad stalker-razzi? I know you like trends…but, reality now.

    Steve, I hope you’ll surprise me in a more positive direction with your new music…it sounds like you will.

    Thanks for the dedication. I guess Fathers Day is intertwined with happiness/sadness, so cheers to you, your dad, my dad & all who are missing theirs.

    All Is One it’s just lovely (thank u to the poster of the link) and actually, I can imagine you singing this with Mr MWP. Stretch Into The Stars is intriguing me. So was the haircut all you expected, or did you wake up in the morning feeling cheap and easy? 🙂

    This is such exciting news there will be b-sides to Fireman…really? That’s a sweetly sung song mmm mmm mmm, the sax, the fairies. *-)

    Oh, this is also amazing news about the commercial song at the time of OSAH. I love Bel-air, Sisters, She Never Said. I welcome todays’ spin on something of this time…that’s what it read like you’re doin’ GJ. thanks.

    It’s the celebration of the Summer of Love…40 years here in San Fran & Sausalito. 42 bands, amongst them Moby Grape? That name threw me back a little (a lot!). Fond memories of Peter Max the psychadellic artist also. The music will start Sunday morning in Golden Gate park…just outside of Haight Asbury.

    Love to you and your lifestyle Genx, everyone!

    Art so much
