    Harmony naturally results in a deep silence, joy, delight.
    Conflict results in anxiety, anguish, stress, tension.
    The EGO is nothing but all the tensions that you have created around

    Hej Killa,
    I admire your music and words, have done ever since I saw the Church starting up in Sydney all those years ago, but I can’t dig why you sometimes rave and rant and rail against the world. I mean, you’re one of the lucky few to get to do a job that you really enjoy, you get to live your music and creativity to the full. And you’re living beachside in a country that knows no poverty, war or disease (unless you happen to be an aborigine). You`ve got a wife and kids,ya brothers, ya friends, and legions of people on this blog who applaud just about everything you do – is life really that bad?

    Just mark the person’s e-mail as spam and have it all bounced right back to the person. Or make sure it all goes into your spam folder where it can all be deleted without you ever having to see it.

    Another fun thing you can do to this person is to input their e-mail address onto every porn site you can think of and the person will get spammed with tons of e-mails. Put their address everywhere on the web that you can find and they’ll start receiving hundreds of junk e-mails each day.

    Well said … I’m still hurting about Heath too. It’s so eerie that he was fascinated with that guy that wrote songs and checked out early on script drugs and Heath filmed a filmclip for his song and in it he drowned in a bath and then he goes and does the accidental (?) OD too. If there ever was a crying shame – I was a huge fan. The guy was so real, he had a bucketful of talent. Just shows you that bloody cliche about lonely at the top is so bloody true. There you are, a huge A-lister, 28, in New York, blondes hanging off every arm (hmmmmm – … )but ultimately you’re just another miserable shmo doing his best to fight off fear and loneliness and confusion. Man the chasm yawns some days. Especially if you’re method acting psychopaths like The Joker for a living. Oh, bloody Heath!!! Oh hell!

    Steven so sorry you’re going through this hideous crap. Too much detritus! I’ve been away and have missed so much. Can you see the doc and get a day minimum to yourself somewhere peaceful?

    Much Love,

    Just read back about Kev Carmody and Triffids shows – great, well done all. Missy nailed it on the 7.30 Report and to snobs who don’t like the ordinary, non-British Australian accents of Missy and Julia Gillard – glad you’re in the minority. These are passionate people who don’t pretend to by anything other than who they are.

    Sounds as if you’re having a really crappy day Steve. Days like that suck. You’ve had a busy and stressful couple weeks — maybe you need a day or two off (or as off as possible). Hope you feel better soon.

    The email stalker is creepy — hope that problem goes away soon too. You shouldn’t have to deal with that kind of harrassment.

    The SK Live dvd arrived yesterday — it’s wonderful! Thanks Matt D. (and everyone else who made it possible). I especially love the bits bewteen the songs — give more of a sense of an actual show instead of it just being a series of live songs. Well done. πŸ™‚

    SK needs my favorite Church song “Tranquility”. “The Aweful Ache” and “Tranquility” are to SK what “For No One” and “Eleanor Rigby” were for MACCA.

    Federer and Nadal were destroyed in the Australian Open. Romney or McCain will be United States REpublican Presidential Nominee. Hillary Clinton will be the DEmocratic nominee. Her and her husband Bill (I loke Hummers from trailer trash) have run a vicious and sleazy campaign against Obama (An erudite, Nelson Mandela-like African American). Class acts finish last.

    steve – get some gentiana long dan cao into you. Takes the excess heat out = calms down the cranks and anxiety. (I accidentally ran out of the stuff and the bottom fell out of everything -hadn’t fully realised the good it was doing until stopped having it).It’s cheap as anything -$8.00 a bottle – there’s a place on George St called Pine Mountain that sells it.It’s brilliant stuff.

    Aristolte's Challenge | 26 January 2008 at 1:03 pm #

    When I ever get pissed off I then always feel guilty. I was feeling really guilty all day, then I read your blog and it gave me a sense of relief. I was in that kinda mood where it was like fuck everyone and fuck myself and fuck this mood. I feel better just knowing someone had the same kinda of day (does that make sense) I don’t know anymore.

    I also came across this quote from Aristolte.
    Aristolte’s Challenge

    “Anyone can become angry – that is easy. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way – this is not easy.”

    Kinda seems like a hard thing to do , might be easier to pop a valium and just say, whatever.

  54. avatar
    Aristolte's Challenge | 26 January 2008 at 1:27 pm #

    Not that I advocate taking valium (I take it to taper off a 14 year xanax habit). In regard to xanax I read a paper that said xanax can increase panic attacks by 350 per cent, ( Could be bullshit but I still wish the doc told me about that before I got addicted. Gee do you reckon it affected Heath and all the other poor desparate souls.

    Re: computer-driven obsessives. I learned a couple of things about them this last year. One is they thrive on the fact that you acknowledge their disruption of your space – their power. And the communications that go back and forth as you try to fix whatever the hell is going on. Two – they get their satisfaction by having the last word in any exchange, and so they try to keep it going to get their fix of Last Word.

    With my particular ghoul, I found out that having the last word (usually involving some dig at me to prove his extreme superiority as he saw it – degreed out the wazoo as he was) is not actually, *literally* having the last word.

    Silence is the real last word.

    Once they catch on they’ve given their final brilliant performance , to prove whatever it is they’re trying to prove and realize you’ve already left the building, the silence is so loud it makes their ears bleed. Makes them even more insane, actually. They become desperate after that.

    Silence is the win. I’ve paid for it with a few hackings, several slanders (and on and on), but desperate actions only prove to me silence trumps anything an obsessive stalking wretch might have in their hand. It’s bothersome cleaning up the messes, but like the t-shirt says: I used to be disgusted. Now I’m just amused.

    Silence is the last word that you simply leave unspoken. They hate that.

    I hope you find an equally satisfying solution, Mr. K.
