a beautiful day here
in ye olde bondi beach
oh the soft and warm water in the sea pool
oh the light and caressing zephyrs
which did play round your humble heros face
as he was lost in a trance
sucking up the chi
taking a million giga bytes of prana on board
with every breath i took
with every move i made
oh the surfers weaving dissolving patterns in the waves, baybee
pretty gurls and their dads
everything summer
the last day o school
evie and aurora got six weeks off
time to chill down by the sea
(cmon sk, we know youre just setting us up with all this pretty talk,
just to say sumpthin’ snide and cynical, you know,
the way ya juxtapose those 2 opposites,
its yer freakin trademark)
no fiendss
no nasstyness today
well maybe a little
just a little gentle nasssstyness….
i see in my comments section
a very considerate note from
saying dear steve you know i love you
(well really, i mean, like, who doesnt?)
but please drop the “sk” thang
but wait a while to do it or i’ll feeel self conscious…

thanks for yer concern
thanks for yer sweet love
thanks for tryin to put me straight
but sk is my registered copyrighted altar ego
hes me as manifested on yer screen, me little darlin’
itd be like asking micky jagger to lose the lips logo
itd be like asking texas to lose its lone star
itd be like asking (insert yer own example here)
so sorry
but that will knot become part of this bloggys forthcoming

well sk
you handled that quite diplomatically, i thought
(but then, i would, wouldnt i?)
others say oh sk
doo thisss
do thatttt
beee like thissss for mee…..
careful what ya wish for,small ones
cos imagine if ole sks blogg looked like this.

Good morning, my readers
another spiffing day in bondi, and as its nearing
that time of the year, let me take this opportunity
to wish all my friends, all over the world
a lovely christmas
and a very happy new year
full of good things
for you and for yours
from my desk
your friend

no hobbits
you cant change sk
im too olde and ugly to change my ways
im gonna keep on the way i am
im gonna go on being a fuckin genius
im gonna go on
with mah little jokes
with mah little literay devices
with mah little groop
and im gonna be on the side of
greek mythology
hindu gods of love
mariju etc wahna
meddi tashun
swimmy swimmy in the olde ocean
bringin’ uppe mah kidss to bee goode bohemian gurls
speakin’ sk speak
revilin’ the weak the lame and the grotesque
imbeciles that showbiz thrusts down yer throatie
i defend the right of all men and wimmen
to smoke ganja, listen to space rock
and commune with mother nature
to buy products from high times magazines
(speshally the electronic kaleidoscope goggle things)
to wear paisley shirts
to show yer solidarity wiv the sixties
and the hippies
to not read the fuckin’ gossip rags
people, theyre fuckin killing ya!

any how
thatss mee
don try an change me, sister
don try an make mee like you , brother
for i am sk
and no other
thatss why you love me
isnt it

    Yep. That’s exactly it.

    But I’ve always had a soft spot for the cranky people. They are much more interesting that those who are all sweetness and light.

    Of all the millions of blogs out there, this one’s the most fun!

    I’d tried blogs before
    but nothing ever seemed to work
    then someone suggested i try sk
    i was sceptical at first
    i’d been let down by old rocker/poet types before
    but sk is different
    he gives me the confidence i need to get me through my day
    my whites are whiter
    my colours brighter

    thank you sk

    Whoever says “don’t use this blah blah,” you don’t *really* care, huh? Is *he/she* a multi hyphenate artiste with adoring masses and an amazing careerspan of decades?! Does *he/she* have their own blog?!…well maybe their own blog. But still. Bah to them! Feed the ego! Yay!

    I loved you as ‘the godfather’ 🙂
    sk sk sk sk tsk tsk ha ha… many connotations, stay true to yourself! I had this impression of Bondi being crowded and full of tourists but you make it sound so beautiful like it was one day, when it rained on my visit … the streets were quieter and my sisters and I drank wine in the rain … before last year’s Church gig actually.

    hi sk
    while your 2 lovely girls had their last day of school
    before summer
    my own 2 lovely girls (9 and 7) had their last day of school before winter break

    my little girl played goldilocks in a play today
    albeit with 3 bullfrogs
    my big girl went skating after school with friends
    after the school party i had the joy of attending
    these little moments are the most beautiful
    continue to enjoy the beauty

    merry xmas sk

    say, Ill try and scan this single of ‘almost with yer’ i have in my pouch somewhere…a long time ago, in the early 80s, you chatted up my auntie, an air hostess at the time, on an Ansett flight (yeah that dates it) and gave her a signed copy of the single (maybe you carried one at all time in your pocket for such an occasion). it said something like ‘ to a most beautiful lady etc etc…’. smooth work sk, always had a way with words yeah! I dont know if this is a collectable item, as I suspect there may be a few signed items with similar sentiments floating about the place….or maybe my auntie had a very special place in yer heart and my cynicism is sadly misplaced…

    anywho, have a great xmas and keep the blogs blogging , very enjoyable read…

    The general tone of these comments seems to be picking up a little.
    Where have all you sk-imitatin’ devils gone, anyway?
    It’s as if you’ve seen a ghost

    And what about the nice lady who writes poetry w/ sk’s lyrics?
    Peace on Earth and Goodwill to (Wo)Men, I say.

    But, sk, would you mind referring to yourself as Steve-O?

    Steve-O, that’s a handy handle… but why not go the whole hogger and call yourself ‘Steveland’? (Apparently it’s Stevie Wonder’s original name.)And just think, you then could open that chain of branded stores you have always dreamed of! “Steveland, for all your SpaceRock needs”…

    Over Interllectual as U R
    The fact is you lead a life

    i love you
    because you are a soul
    amazingly aware
    uncertain in the dark
    just like we all are
    just like we all are
    and your soul
    has touched mine
    has been a neon sign
    beckoning and illuminating
    i love you because
    i sense the world
    is a better place
    with you in it

    I thought we already ARE you sk…
    so if we try to change you… who are we actually changing? or if we are trying to change you, aren’t you changing yourself? It’s all so confusing… pass the latest issue of High Times please.

    It must be kind of weird putting your thoughts up on a blog and having all these responses to them, people like me offerring advice and recommending books, songs, drugs to help ya on your merry way. Strange creative beings all on their own orbits around ya, trying to influence you, or be influenced, i don’t quite know how it works, all wanting to touch or be touched, becuase they have been profoundly moved by a few notes and words you wrote one day. Must be kind of strange having that kind of adoration, ah man i would hate the responsibility which is possibly why i am not a famous rock star, plus I only know 4 chords and no one ever reads my blog.
    But the one thing I do know is I like reading it, I like that there’s a weird dialogue i can have with my guitar hero, the enigmatic bearded, wizard from Bondi. There’s something reassuring that I always start my daze with a smile after reading your ramblings. And in these tymes, this day and age, if I am smiling I am winning.
