    one daughter like a little devil gumball, with those piercing scanner eyes sucking in everything…rehearsing first words, one half in the language of kraftwerk, the other in the language of absinthe ‘n prague. first word – cz equiv. of “shroom”, hehe… she has that SK/sc double portrait in her little boudouir, pointing to SK, saying “grampa!” (sorry, me father’s got the same beard & glasses)

    what a lucky bloke you are!
    …and in the best band around too.
    does ‘writing in the studio’ mean ‘jamming stuff out’?
    i hope it does…coz i like you guys best when you work like that.

    “a: cmon….can we have an interview”
    HAHAHAHAHA~~cut to the chase. i love it. 🙂 i just love when you interview them, period.

    “scarlet did her first wee wee in the potty yesterday”
    yay~~i think this is one of the biggest milestones a child could have. no parent misses changing diapers and is in nirvana when it is fin-al-ly over!!

    andy’s right~~you are lucky. you have a beautiful family who love you very much. you are most certainly blessed, steve. i am so happy for you.

    “lucky listeners..painkiller n k/k n new churchy”
    this lucky listener is blessed to have discovered churchy all those years ago and is and forever will be enthralled by your magic.

    lotza love….

    As I read this morning’s, it occured to me to look for pictures of Australia from space, and to put the radio on….unknown station, it played songs of love with gorgeous bass, as I browsed our beautiful home and read astronauts comments…like this:

    “Suddenly, from behind the rim of the moon, in long, slow-motion moments of immense majesty, there emerges a sparkling blue and white jewel, a light, delicate sky-blue sphere laced with slowly swirling veils of white, rising gradually like a small pearl in a thick sea of black mystery. It takes more than a moment to fully realize this is Earth . . . home.
    – Edgar Mitchell, USA

    My view of our planet was a glimpse of divinity.
    – Edgar Mitchell, USA “

    thanks again Steven….

    Sk’s love for his children is great. They have kept him alive and kicking. When you listen to a far-out Church or Sk CD it’s plausible to think he would have checked-out like Jimbo Morrison or Mr. Cobain. Paternal love is a virtue!!!!!!!!!!

    A good laugh was had by all…including us fiends no doubt.

    I was reminded of when Bill Cosby gave his kids chocolate cake for breakfast b/c it had sugar, milk, eggs…just like pancakes which people have for breakfast. Very funny anecdote.

    Good luck at “work” today…we are patiently awaiting the outcome.

    Please excuse this second commentory Steve. Kids they just fill you heart with love. Little kids staying in villa across the way, little girl and 4 yr old boy. Gradually make themselves comfortable in my home. All the girls go outside, little chap watching Lion King and casting sideways glances at me while I am writing a letter. He then says “Linda, I give my mum kisses” Oh I say thats nice. He says, “and now I would like to give you one” and comes running at me with his arms open for big hugs and kisses. Little sweetheart! Touched my heart! The innocence of kids makes me cry.

    Now for a definition of a “lover” in a girly book of mine, also defined as a philosopher, artist, obsessive lover, eroticist.

    His persona is directed to the pursuit of sensual, romantic, artistic and creative endeavours. His aesthetic consciousness is drawn from his environment. He is influenced by his senses. He feels no separation from the cosmos. His shadow is his self doubt and angst, his restless irritability, his infantile longings for adoration and his sloth. He is not respectful.

    Finally, readers, never put your hand to another uninvited, particularly in anger. I have been charged, fingerprinted, mugshot the works for hitting my daughters father in the head because he was drink driving with my angelica in the car. Ironic that I am now the baddie.
    Sorry for waffling on, certainly cathartic in its anonomity. Listening to Sam’s Town the killers, ok, just love that song, dont you want to come with me, dont you want to feel my skin.
    Sorry Steve its your blog. Had a few lambruscas.

    uninvited, like the interviewer? i guess as a parent to a captive audience, you can interview em whether they want to be or not lol 😉

    cool re: the studio work. a new spell being woven, new magic gracefully drawn from the ether. 2008 looks to be a spoiler, with 3 new albums on the horizon. 🙂 maybe even a 2nd b-sides collection to go with the new album, a la Beside Yourself + Back w/ 2 Beasts?
