yeah yeah yeah
i read the f. machine booklet
all the voices in my head disrupting my performance
theyre saying
be more dramatic
less dramatic
more gesticulation
less gesticulation
youre outta time
your voice is driving us mad
i only stumble in a few places
but im not as good as i wanted to be
and im tired of myself
after a lovely vegan meal with
the nice local vegan childs…
the killer opts for tempeh burgah
i come back n do teachers n suzanne
the mic. really stinks bad
and i have to get up close to sing suzanne
and its a foul reek of cigs coffee n meaty halitosis i guess
im used to having my own clean mic usually
and i really wanted to stay away from this awful thing
but i had to get close to sing the quiet bits…
its not all dancing on clouds…
i walk round brizzy bumping into people i know
having poetic discourses n all that
a nice gentle sunday
oh yeah
n i forgot to say
the doodles in paper yessaday flying kites
sat telegraph
go you little doodles
i’ll be a bossy hollywood dad
ripping off my kids and the bane of directors
bitching at the casting session bout the other brats
the doodles will have bulimia by their tenth birthday
and be in the gossip rags by 13
i’ll be manipulating the game from the sideline
lining my own pockets with ill gotten gain
its just the beginning
bumper can release her first single at age 3
with sexy dance routine
for the lucrative under 2 market
i maybe could get joycie in some retirement commercials
aint that what families are for….to exploit….?
get em all on the ad wagon
deduct my commission
(and girls, in case youre wondering, its formidable)
hollywood will beckon n re embrace me
i will be forgiven n absolved
and back in the charts at # 1 all over the world
for one year with painkiller
lemme have my dreams, little stranger

i will be performing again tonite
maybe with jamie h
a few songs
at closing ceremony
its free too
a free for all
i hope that mics been disinfected

    Sorry to hear about them stinky old mic’s . Erg ,Jello Biafra’s phlem ,Chrissie Amphletts pee, ya just never know where they’ve been.
    Remember to put a clean mic’s clause in the Doodles contracts when you get em working. Ta keep em full a beans you could also put a red smarties only demand for the backstage rider.
    I’ve read that under 2’s pop market is lucrative, maybe yer on to somethin.
    Indiscriminate buying is where it’s at. I mean no one makes artistic critique of Hi 5 do they?.
    They just buy it ta shut em up.
    Or so im told..

    I was told that Lena Lovich and her husband,are responsible for the “Telly tubbies”…remember her in the early 80’s…and her main {or only hit}one was “My lucky number’s one”…anyway ,you could develop your owm space-rock-psychadelic kids show,about a time traveller,and you could impart “morals to the story,or infuse it with a few profound metaphysics/statements/revelations….Yeah!…that’d be sooooooo cool!…I’d watch that!…..oh on a tangent….woops!…xxxxxlove,as always,gen

    I think the 80’s goddess who was involved with the Teletubbies was Toyah Wilcox. She did one of the voices.

    you didn’t gesticulate too much, it was maybe a little fast, but then there was time pressure
    when i read that book i felt it was about an intense and passionate love affair with music and some parts of it could have had a bit more caressing and a bit more reflection space for the listener but it was fine
    just don’t hold the f. book in front of your face next time

    i notice that when you perform your own stuff there is this edge and urgency but when you do other people’s songs you’re softer

    tonight’s performance was tops
    excellent choice of songs
    great partnership
    very moving

    I can see it; the doodles will be the next Olson Twins, driven by their obsessed manager, multimillionaires with oh-so-trendy digestive disorders and personal shrinks to assauge the burden of success and fame…….um, well, I wish them the best though! You would be a hard-charging manager, T.B. Driving the hard bargains, intimidating the moguls, putting only brown M&M’s in their contract riders.

    Sorry about that nasty mike; perhaps a disinfectant spray would be in order. Good luck tonight; tonight – tonight.

    I’m biting my tongue here, and there I go again. If you scratch out the h and insert b you get bollywood. Now there’s nothing wrong with your dream…some parallel universe where children are up on stage with their family in legacy.

    Can you believe it? “I’m a doctor or an engineer…but I’ll give that up for awhile for dance, song, and movie.

    Children are the center of the universe.
