still v. warm here in bondi
back in mah cafe
the strains of
“i wanna dance with somebody who loves me”
drift on the sullen sultry salty air
i must say at this moment
i consider the abovementioned song
to be the most pathetic dreg of pop ever made
hollow empty egotistic struggles
of a thankfully bygone age
everything about it cheap tawdry meaningless
is this why we had the sixties?
it dont matter how you weed the garden
they always come back
we struck a blow against this sort of tripe
in the frontline at bully high
in red velvet shirts n floursinourhare
i thought we nailed that meaningless saccharine tripes ass
but it just reappears
in a slightly different form
thats all
some peanut in the 1950s woulda been proud
of a title like that
in all its self obsessed vacuousness
i immediately feel total antipathy
and wish i could end their dancing days forever

been playing my copy of mimesis
that i got off s.pol
down in melby
actually if you were at the gigg
you maya heard it playin before we went on
it aint everyones cuppa mescaline
but if it is..
oh boy youre gonna really like it
cmon polinski
i aint callin’ ya a geenius anymore
its gone to yer head
and it aint a pretty sight
but by god, man
you can twiddle the twiddlers
make the woofers tweat
you are the man
that kisses n cuddles music
good on ya
it can sure use it
mimesis will be out soon
id be surprised if ya didnt think it was
the best record ever made
and
the best record that ever will be made
ever by anybody
at least you should think that
ha ha fiend
you thinka im joking..
then just ask the little lord of misrule
who drifted of to some esoteric haven
entranced by the universe
that mimesis ripped in her living room
a portal opened
she stepped thru
and polinski n cohorts
guided her down this black street
to an olde warm familiar place
that can never be described
but once you been there
you forever wanna get back
which explains all that misrule
better to be a twig in heaven
that a king in hell
goodbye ll
and try to behave…

i dunno
what else
so much happening
yet
nothing changing
years flash by
moments that last forever
who knows anything?
not me
see ya 2morro

    That was remarkably beautiful. Even the bit about the sucky song. In fact I bet the bit about the sucky song is much more beautiful than the song (which I fortunately have never heard).

    Looking very forward to hearing Mimesis.

    Looking forward to ULTC, mimesis, Isidore II, and also your biography – “No Certainty Attached”!! You’re a busy man sk!! I can’t think of any other artist that is so creative – music, painting, poetry, blogging, etc. Your work keeps getting better and better – I’m excited to hear that everyone loved the Church’s latest show the other night – I wished I could have been there!!

    the paradox

    Peace to ya, Steve.

    Can’t think of a single Whitney Houston song I can stand either. Wasn’t she supposed to be the salvation of pop music or something?!?! Funny how one remembers the songs they liked from a certain era, but I now recall how much crap I had to listen to on the radio in the 80s before a good song came along…

    Take care,

    ULTC is getting a right royal rotating at the deanery.
    The opening song Block is as compelling and epic as Aura.
    ‘Getting kinda greedy, need a space needle’ yeah this is the stuff but now we want more…

    Been listenin to ULTC a lot too…
    I reckon Easy is easily the best pop song since probably Comedown..
    Itd be nice for a change if some o these record company & radio programming dudes stoppd snorting free coke & copping gratis sex with exotic hermaphrodites long enuff to put it on high rotation ..
    It deserves it
    I mean if the Veronicas did Easy itd be a worldwide fucking hit!
    Maybe you guys should consider just writing songs & recording them for other supposedly fucking hip bands to release..
    Go on , chastise me but at least you’d retire comfortably.
    Just one little criticism, I for one would much rather you guys did a few never played songs from that massive catalogue as an encore rather than get a compilation CD..
    It was a large crowd of the faithful at the Basement the other night so why not do Sisters or Life Speeds Up, Maybe These Boys, Electric Lash, Just For You, I dunno , fuck , wattever..

    I still love u

    The cafe must’ve resurrected Whitney’s odious song after being inspired by reading about her descent into a crack-addled hell (no shock there). You’d need hard drugs to deal with that sort of music on a long-term basis, ha!

    actually there was one good song Whitney did back then, it’s called “you give good love”, and now she is a crack head, hmmm…
    poor girl, she needs to get away from that crazy @#$%&! life and find herself again. Good Luck Whitney, you’ll need it…

    Wasn’t Whitney once engaged to Gene Pitney? Oh that’s right – they called it off for some reason.

    Listened to ULTC last night with a little ‘assistance’. Did more for me than Straightjacket Fits in the 90’s.

    Block builds beautifully.

    (sigh) Don’t stop making music!

    SK,

    Been away for a week, catching up on all the bloggies that I missed on the road…

    You hit on so many things that resonated with me: I hate fucking rap with the fire of a thousand suns, I can’t understand why anyone would suck out their brain with a vapid sitcom when something like Bill Shakespeare exists in the world,…

    Glad to hear the tour was a resounding success!!! Waiting impatiently for ULTC and Mimesis.

    We all got the prerogrative to have our “perogatives” eh? I think there’s a lot of comedic value in a lot of those old videos if you can suspend your initial horror. It’s such ephemeral entertainment. I wanna roll over in my grave though, before I even make it there, when somebody calls this pop lot artists. That’s the vulgar part, the awards and accolades for stuff that vanishes as quick as it comes in.

    sk,

    Sorry to talk business on your bloggy but I need some new t-shirts.

    I bought the “red” t-shirt for El Momento… I would by all of them if they were better colors… The blue Karmic Hit one was the coolioist but I missed it. White always works, especially with your paintings. (XL please…we ain’t 18 anymore).

    I know you don’t want to whore yourselves out but shit, if I could pay the rent by selling a few t-shirts with my name on them, I might do it for a little bit.

    You are the greatest!!!!!!!!

    “it dont matter how you weed the garden

    This it is of the few places that I have visited that contains so much information specifies about the theme. The investigations that have carried out to obtain the information so complete that present in this place they are notable.

    I congratulate him for having a site so spectacular and interesting I invite to visit my site because we share a theme in common and I expect that you enjoy my site as I enjoy yours.
    Dr Bongs supports the legalization of cannabis for recreational and medical use. We recognize that the “War on Drugs” criminalizes otherwise law abiding citizens, reduces civil liberties for everyone, endangers drug users by forcing them to turn to criminals for their drug supply and threatens their health as illegal drugs are not subject to quality control and often contain dangerous substances

    Vermonters with certain chronic illnesses can now use medical marijuana. The legislature passed the new medical marijuana law this year and the program started Friday. So far, only thirty people have asked for applications from the department of public safety, none have been sent in yet. Officials expect more people will apply as the program gets underway.

    Convinced they have sound science on their side, advocates for the medical use of marijuana plan to launch a novel effort today to get the federal government to ease restrictions on the illicit drug.
