happy goode fryday
you holidaying fiendss
sk has no holidaze
everyyday the same to him
so i envy n pity ya
in equal proportions
gotta feeling todays bloggo maybe
ye olde mixed bagge
in which i pontificate on things
as if anything i can say
will make any difference
but inna way this science of blogging
is a miracle for me
cos (not that ive ever read another one in my life)
im a blogger at the top of his game
im ALMOST a better blogger
than lyricist
and didnt i declare myself the winner
in that field too
i am the judge
the jury
and the recipient
of my systems idea of justice
yes i am a harsh critic
but i apply that to myself
only half a dozen songs
this olde wordsmith dropped the ball on
for a quarter of a century
some people have written better lyrics
than me
but have they kept it up
record after record
in fair wind n foul
i never wrote my songs down to ya
n
i dont write my bloggs down to ya neither
its like yer sittin’ here with me
9 50 good friday
we both been to the icebergs
we did our laps
the water was PERFECT
the temp is about 77 degrees
its nicensunny but not ultra cookin ya
im sittin’ here in the internet joint
the one run by the jap girls
im a f%^&$ing regular here, joe
thats mah machine you be usin’
ah thats better
i putta lotta thyme into this computer here
and its startin’ to love me back
i am programming it with my will n intent
anyway
i watched the preposition
by nicky cave last nite on dvd
fair bit of tomato sauce, i’ll grant you
but um
in the end
i felt like i’d wasted the time n interest
i’d spent on it
sorry nicky
but i did love your book
and recommend it
along with the boatmans call
which i really like
but not the one that came after that
where the singing went up an octave
and it sounded fuckin ridiculous
and the lyrics were a little twee
(kittens in laps ,puhlease,yer sposed to be the prince of darkniss)
but im very proud of ya generally
(as if he cares what i think!?)
and shows that australians
are capable of things
that some other countries cant do
but he sure is a maverick
i think hes capable of anything now…

yeah its good friday
the day they nailed our saviour
why is it good friday, daddy?
whats good about it?
well sweetheart
its good because
the bad guys got jesus
but he hadda die for our sins
so it was good he died
in a bad way of course

look fiendss
i know one thing
i read the bible
cover to cover
i know what jesus message is
its so simple
be a good guy
love everybody as much as ya can
do no harm
try to love god a little…
thats really it
but religion has so complicated this
why?
so the same kinda idiots who nailed jc up
in the 1st place
the important pollys n priests
so they could use this to get hold
of the hoi polloi again
by the balls
with a whole lotta mumbo jumbo
latinate ritualistic supersticious
who can follow any of that
where did that happen in the gospels
no
its accretion kids
look that word up sonny jim
it means that blokes added their own trip
onto the inspired bits by the real deal
so you get yer c of e
yer catholics yer baptists yer luths
yer methos yer presbos
yer united church of upper downs
i dunno
where is that stuff in the bible?
ya see
when i read jesus words
(or whoever the fuck said them
it doesnt matter to me
someone had these thoughts
they are revolutionary
sublime
heart stabbing thoughts)
when i read em
i feel its all so easy
i feel so good
heres the message
take it easy baybee
thats it
if you genuinely take it easy
everything else will take care of itself
people taking it easy
dont interfere with other people
taking it easy themselves
simple
simplistic maybee
but true nonetheless
same as buddha said
just sort yaself out dude
dont worry bout him or her
forget yourself
and youll remember
well
buddha actually never said anything like that
thats my attempt at wryly
transliterating some of the pali sutras
for ya
ha ha
you know what i mean
i can put it in some fancy latinate for ya
whaddya want that for
ok
thats it
go out there and be nice
its easy
so make it easy on yourself
cos breaking up
is so very hard
to do

    I have to agree with you on your comments about Jesus and religion.

    I realy enjoy your blogs, I have been reading them since the start and I look forward to a new blog each day.

    I have to mention, I have the Block EP and I have been listening to Block over and over and it never grows old!! I’m still waiting for ULTC to be released – so this is all I have to listen to until then!! I think you’re the only artist that I can listen to time and time again and I like the music even better after each listen. I often think, “what the hell would I listen to if there was no SK around!!” So thanks so much for your music, writing, and painting!!

    I don’t beleeve in God, I beleeve in science. So all those that want to go to a place where all their ded pets will be awaitin’, in a tranquil place, you believe that then fellow feeenz..

    Dutch Pierre’s lil girl moans to him about putting a nail thru her foot at MFEMFEMF Zoo. I tell her it’s a very cool thing to do.. Put a nail in ya foot at Easter. She don’t get it but.

    But Mr K, You don’t make dosh from Bloggin’.. No A.P.R.A cheques, no royalty, just moral satisfaction as you provide your faithful feinzz their daily bread. 26 years and umpteen Blog albums would have been a tad tedious even for us diehards..

    Let’s put it n perspeck for just a sec.. Imagine a most imperfek world for a mo’ will ya’s :

    “After Everything, Now This Blog”

    “Terra Nova-blog”

    “For A Moment We’re Bloggers”

    Imagine an empty stage at the Metro.. No vox’s, no Lesley, no strats, no rickenbackers,

    Just 4 SM 58’s and 2 hours of pontification & philosophy.

    Naaah, take ya gat to The Sando tomorrow not the Bible.

    Oh, and it’s not whether NC gives a toss, it’s whether you should give a toss about what he says.

    He may have inspired ya to by bad shit in Queens, but that’s about it.. from where I come from anyway. This weekend I go see The Rolling Stones at Western Springs. Just so I can go to heaven (I mean as I’m gobbled up by worms) I can say I saw em..

    Happy Eeeeester, and to all you lucky f*%kin feinzz able to attend the Sando gig, give a thought to the poor fuckers in MFEMFEMF who are crucified to the fact that we’ll probably see JC himself on stage here before SK.

    A lot of lessons in The Proposition but nothing new, they did a great job with the film work though beating 99% of films out there. Or ‘filims’ as my pommie dad says 🙂

    Nick redeemed himself with Abbattoir Blues/Lyre of Orpheus..in my Top 10 of best albums ever and you and NC as being the 2 best lyricists/writers of modern time and hey, he doesnt have a blog yet does he?? His book When The Ass Saw The Angel IS unbelievably brilliant. Its always been a secret dream of mine to see you two work together, can u imagine the shades of dark and light? You’re different but alike.

    Nice blog today. The best thing about the bible is that it causes so much debate, discussion and controversy and the worst thing about the bible is the same.

    Jesus had some good things to say, but he also believed in Hell and said, “Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell,” and also says, “Whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven him neither in this world nor the world to come,” etc.

    Bertrand Russell was right when he said you wouldn’t find this attitude in Socrates or Buddha and that it’s not worthy of a sage to speak this way and that Jesus had an unusually high level of indignation.

    Nick Cave has a great lecture available from when he was teaching through the Vienna Poetry Academy and if you click on this link I’m giving you and scroll to the bottom of the page to the “texts” hyperlink, you’ll see that Mr. Cave has written a quite informative essay on The Love Song (and his vast use of The Old Testament to help him with this endeavour).

    When I was about 5 or 6 years old my family and I drove down the country on Good Friday to visit grandma.
    On the way there the car at 110km hit a rabbit. My father then turned to me and said “oh well looks like no Easter eggs this year”.
    I never liked Easter since then.

    Heya Steve,

    Just food for thought about the whole
    religion thingy…I was watching
    some show called, “The Science of the Bible”. And historically some Roman
    emperor(the sane lot that they were)
    picked books that were to be compiled
    into what is now the Bible…but…heres
    the kicker…he wanted all the gnostic
    gospels excluded and the gnostic sect
    labeled as heretics…because the gnostic books empowered people so they don’t have to rely on a religion organization…so basically it gnoticism is more focused on spiritual
    practice and application rather than blind dogmatism. I’ve always wondered since I was a kid why some gospels were excluded I thought…doesn’t that take away from the whole scope of understanding. And that the bible is “infallible and unchanged” is just another way of saying we edited it…
    and people believe it..therefore people
    won’t even think of questioning it. If
    anyone reading this thinks the bible is
    unchanged…they’ve played you for
    a medieval peasant.

    Hey Steve,
    only just heard about the twins – as a parent, my heart goes out to you and your family. Sending my positive thoughts and all my love.

    As for Good Friday…the resurrection narrative has had a powerful appeal to the human imagination since we crawled out of the swamp. Theatre historians believe that the Abydos Passion Play (which enacted the resurrection of Osiris) was the first ever performed. And hey…the whole Osiris story is strikingly similar to the story of JC (only written several thousand years earlier).

    Let’s face it, resurrection can be witnessed every day in the miraculous cycle of birth, life, death, birth which encompasses all living things – something those ‘pagans’ and Eastern religions know so well. For me, the story (or ‘facts’) about JC’s resurrection are just such a metaphor.

    Nothing wrong with that…but I agree with you – the ‘us and them’ approach to religion is a recipe for human conflict. Anyway…as I understand it, Easter began as a pagan festival to celebrate and give thanks for the ‘rebirth’ of the natural world in springtime. Makes sense to me – just call me ‘earthmother’ !

    Looking forward to tomorrow night – may fair thoughts attend thee.

    Love
    Julia

    The modern holiday of Easter is derived from the name “Eostre” and the associated myths.

    According to these myths, Eostre was a playful goddess whose reign over the earth began in the spring when the Sun King journeyed across the sky in his chariot, bringing the end of winter. Ostara came down to earth then, appearing as a beautiful maiden with a basket of bright colorful eggs. Ostara’s magical companion was a rabbit who accompanied her as she brought new life to dying plants and flowers by hiding the eggs in the fields.

    This explains the dyed eggs and the bunnies, which of course represent fertility.

    Dear “Heya Steve” poster,

    FYI, the Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Luke, Mark and John) according to prominent scholars (i.e. J.A.T Robinson) were written 40 to 70 years after the death of Christ. Moreover, the traditional view (as held by Papius AD 140 and others) argue that the Synoptic Gospels were written by the Apostles or their followers. (Is it so outlandish a claim that the Apostles, being illiterate fishermen, dictated their eyewitness accounts to scribes?). In stark contrast, the “Gnostic Gospels” were written 300- 400 years after the birth of Christ.

    You don’t need a PHD to work out which text is considered an “eyewitness” account of Christ’s life.

    Besides, Christ didn’t found a Bible, per se, but a Church. Jesus promised, “I will build my Church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it” (Matt. 16:18). Therefore, the Church decides what text becomes canon and what does not. In fact Jesus said the Church was “the pillar and foundation of truth” (1 Tim. 3:15). Basically, Jesus gave the early Church a mandate to approve what is heretical or “Truth” in accordance with his teachings.

    All this emphasis on the Bible as Jesus’ ultimate source of truth is derived from the erroneous “Sola Scriptura” (bible alone) theory. Firstly, “Sola Scriptura” is not supported by the bible (see 2 Pet. 1:20–21, 3:15–16). Secondly, “Sola Scriptura” is self-refuting; it cannot tell us which books belong in the Bible and which don’t. (NB The Bible didn’t precede the Church. Jesus’ teaching is safeguarded by the Church and the Bible). Jesus assured the Apostles and their successors, “He who listens to you listens to me, and he who rejects you rejects me” (Luke 10:16). Jesus promised to guide his Church into all truth (John 16:12–13).

    Yours sincerely,
    Anon.

    PS Remember, all the Apostles denied the Divinity of Christ initially when he was crucified. They all fled the authorities fearing their demise. It’s only when they saw the resurrected Christ they all publicly professed their belief in Jesus Christ as the Son of God. All but one Apostle died a martyr for his belief. Now if Jesus died and wasn’t resurrected, do you really think an Apostle would give up his life for a lie? They certainly showed they wouldn’t! Not until they witnessed Christ’s resurrection firsthand were they willing to die for their persecuted beliefs.

    have a healthy dose of doubt about wether the ressurection really occured sorry

    than believe in something for the sake of comfort.

    Dear “6.51am” poster,

    I appreciate what you are saying. Even the Apostles doubted Christ. Thomas was even skeptical that Jesus had Resurrected from the dead. He had to insert his hands into the wounds of Christ before he could “believe”. For the rest of us, to believe requires a “leap of faith” or “Grace”. Basically, you’re given freewill to decide whether you believe the Apostles’ account is true or not. This is the “deal breaker”.

    However, what I do find strange is that non-believers such as yourself talk of Jesus as some “Enlightened” teacher. Jesus’ teaching was not a simple “feel-good” philosophy. It was immersed in the supernatural. For example:

    John 5:23: Jesus equates Himself with the Father, “whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him.”

    John 5:21-22: Jesus gives life and says that all judgment has been given to Him by the Father.

    Matthew 13:39-42: Jesus states “As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the Age. The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will weed out of His kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

    Matt. 26:52-53: When Jesus was arrested by the Romans, Christ’s disciple Peter tried to intervene, but Jesus stopped him, saying, “Do you think I cannot call on my Father and He will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels?”

    This imagery is far from “comforting”. In fact, Jesus was the original “fire and brimstone preacher”. Thankfully for us, Jesus said every sin can be forgiven with a contrite heart.

    I wish to add that I am a believer not because I fear hell (as I don’t murder, steal etc because of the existence of prison), but because Jesus’ embodied love and compassion. The fact that evil and evil entities exist does not detract from God’s love for us. We are all engaging in a spiritual battle with the unseen supernatural world. This is the foundation of Christ’s teaching.

    CS Lewis encapsulated this polemic wonderfully when he wrote:

    “I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: ‘I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept His claim to be God.’ That is one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of thing Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic—on a level with the man who says he is a poached egg—or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”

    Yours sincerely,
    Anon.

    PS The Apostles post-Resurrection neither committed suicide or murder. To compare their martyrdom to the suicidal and murderous Jim Jones Cult or Nazi Germany is therefore an unsound analogy.

    SK — you have no holidays. I have a similar problem, except for me, every day is a hollyday. 🙂 (yeah, I know, that was really bad…)

    “but religion has so complicated this
    why?”

    Because god is big business. The purveyors of this business know most people want to be told what to do instead of figuring it out for themselves. And of course the businessmen always find a way to gain power and make a profit. Always. That’s why it has to be complicated.

    But, of course, you know that.

    Really Boatmans Call eh?
    I don’t know? I was the biggest Cave fan ever, got into him around the Tender Prey days(pre Good Son) when I was about 17, saw him at Melbourne University stoned. That was a bit of a mistake M’Jane doesn’t really agree with me(It seemed like I was there for days), what a trip that was. It was like I was in hell surrounded by goths and NC was some sort of strange evangelical preacher, still for some reason it was really great and I became a fan.
    I loved NC right up until Murder Ballards then completely lost interest I thought that album was absolute tripe, you’d think I would have given him a second chance.
    So I should get Boatmans Call and maybe his book huh?
    Someone who I admire told me the book was a verbose wank, but maybe I give it a go on your recommendation.

    I think the whole Christian thing is kinda sick i was raised a Catholic until I was 14 and then thought what a load of shit.
    There’s some guy up on a cross for a symbol, for fuck sake, isn’t that the same as having someone hanging from a noose as a symbol, kinda sick when yer think about it.

    hi steve and devotes, yeah i like that ‘take it easy’ thing, it’s more worth while than all those repressed emotions and whippings. st.francis was pretty cool to, even islam loved his work.

    Dear God Steve,

    Long time no see.

    Remember Burge from 92? He’s now the vocalist in a little Newtown based blues band I’m putting together.

    Hope you’re well,

    Tried the lentil-nut loaf out of the Laurel’s Kitchen cookbook tonight. Not too bad, actually. And.. shock of shocks – my husband ate it!
    You know, Steve, you may be more influential than you think.

    love,

    the first gig i ever took my little to was nick cave. at the tivoli on george street. remember the tivoli? saw the church there too. and the stems. not on the same night mind you. there was a cool cinema there too. what was that called? the roma? those seats were more comfortable than my bed. and they tore all that shit down to build the metro? damn them! nick was on tour with screaming jay hawkins believe it or not. and died pretty too. what a revelation they were. this was around the first born is dead. quite a night. nick was a real prick though. and blixa sat down on a chair all night. not because he was tired but because he was incapable of standing. he even wandered off stage mid song a couple of times to throw up. the gear i suspect. we took our lives into our own hands and stood down front. two swampies were in front. when the girl finished her beer she smashed the glass and started slashing her arms. her boyfriend was lost in song. after tapping him on his shoulder and showing him her handiwork, he started slapping her around the head, screaming ‘you stupid bitch!’ . . . ‘now we have go!!!’. caring soul huh? my brother was 15 and stood there all night like a wabbit in the high beams.

    Thanks for another great read Steve.

    Reading the comments today…nothing like religion to stir up emotions!
    I think you’re on the right track however – I’ve spent years wading through Catholic Dogma
    trying to see the light
    and when the message is put so simply (and it IS simple)
    it becomes more like shading your eyes from nothing but light

    I feel that debating the details on who wrote what and when…
    well – you just get stuck in the crap that stops you seeing and acting on that very simple message.

    Your voice on ULTC is amazing Steve.

    Love
