hello readers

early morning
a little down
a little sad

howcome you olde rocker? whats yer complaint today?
i dunno.
sometimes it takes its toll
everything adds up
left mah suitcase at the gig
no clothes
no toothbrush
no nothing
just last nites stuff all damp n sweaty
ears ringin
eyes blurrin
head aching
throat sore and tired
inspiration….i have none
bad news business wise
always a catch
always a loophole
always somethin upsetting the applecart
ah what about the gig sk…didja rock?
yeah bub, we rocked
what about the talkers sk?
fuck em. the rude sods
how was the poetry reading?
ok except i got there and i couldnt read the fine print
i had to have a glasses audition
i tried on various glasses of the audiences
until i could see mah own wordies on the page
but when i was finished i could nae see straight or crooked
ah drinkin mah soy hot chokky
feelin a little better
oh sk, you knew you were riding too high
you knew you had to crash rainy friday morning in melbourne
youre all alone
so lonely and sad
ahhhh nevermind, olde bouy
just keep blogging till ya feel a little better
i gotta do a photo session for the AGE
no clothes
no shampoo to wask mah greasy wispy hair
no razor to shave my beardy into shape
no charisma left
not even any pot
cmon cheer up you maudlin fool
spiegeltent tonite
yeah and thats the end of mah tour
that makes me sad too
oh well
thats life at the top of the charts
in the fast lane
in the light of reflection
in the spotty light
in the early morning rain
just another washed up olde rocker
typing at his blogg
just another superstah
goin thru harde thymes
another fly on the windshield
another time
another plaice
people im sadde
im badde
but im gladde
that your there
glad i have ya to talk to
gladde that ya understand mah moods
mah everchangin moods
no one ever said it would be easy, sk…

    Cheer up mate. How can you be alone with 6 females around? And hurry get some Pot, don’t be without the green placebo. Just don’t smoke any of that “Devil’s Emlightenment” but you warned against that in a song. Was it, “Is this where You Live?”

    All caution to the wind, blow the tent down my main man!

    James, the Limo is ready.

    hello luvely, we saw the exact moment your state of mood turned last night, and its a flick of a switch to see that there is no point trying to control any situation, for it is sure to control you. Just a matter of letting go – of all concepts of a rocker that is this way or the other, respected or forsaken. A bird on a branch non-judgmental about the traffic buzzing around him for there is no him to be shaken. Take care of health sweets as that is where the fatigue is comprmising SK’s lovely floaty mood, that cannot ever possibly be lonely/

    sk, although i could not hear all through the chatter and natter the ratter and tatter the timmy go splatter in a timely but unguarded moment, the energy, the emotion, the connection, the translation, the transmission, the transending was beyond mortality, beyond normality, beyond the beyond.

    Keep a focus on the good in the flock, and let the others get flocked.

    Cheer up ‘ya geezer. i love ya’.
    Making me/we happy on a basis daily is not an easy feat.
    Yet, you seem to do it effortlessly.

    Is anyone in Melbourne close enough to go help sk out? A chauffeur for a few hours to help him get back to his suitcase? If I was there I’d do it!

    hi sk

    like the prophet said

    “your joy is your sorrow unmasked…
    and how else can it be?
    the deeper that sorrow carves into your being,
    the more joy you can contain …

    when you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy.

    when you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.”

    kahlil gibran

    Nice work in Adelayed Steve.
    All those talking wankers aren’t true believers, just ‘milky-way’ church fans i suspect and they just don’t get it.
    You’d be happy to know that my 5 year old was just singing ‘Numbers’ before. Bringing her up nicely!

    Hey rocker,

    Here’s another for ya. If you got itunes you can find it. Maybe you already have it? Ginger Baker- “horses and trees”. A fine musician whose playing seems to pull me together just when i could use it. He’s beyond drums. Just pure magic. Wrestling the mundane into something just good to be around.

    Maybe by now you are feeling better. I just woke up. Your blog is my first morning news. You would let us know of any terrorist attacks wouldn’t you?
    As for the end of the tour, just think…America is next!
    We love you over here…

    Hi there, your blog is excellent. As I was surfing around today looking for detailed info on oreck air purifier I somehow ended up on your page. As your described site is not exactly related to my search, I am certainly glad I stopped by. Oh well, back to surfing and I am sure I will find what I am looking for, and should you ever need information about oreck air purifier, then stop by for a look. Thanks for the post.
