where are you nevets?
im deep in a dream, muse
im asleep at the bottom of a black chasm
im so far away…
wake up nevets its time you were about
(a phone rings)
from a million light years
my consciousness rises
up n up nup nup
ascending thru my hopes n fears
my past lives
my secret ambitions
up n up nup i go
rising up to myself
my hand goes out
picks up the phone
“steve, hello….”
am i steve?
where am i?
i was so far away
somewhere in a world of pure idea
somewhere out there so far
somewhere in here so deep
“steve its roger kaputnik from the miliapolis bugle…”
auto pilot switches on
oh hi roger…
an interview follows
under the milky way this
under the milky way that
ahh roger..you got the wrong room
under the milky way is in room 1313
rogers got it all confused
he must think its 1986
he must be thinking of the outfield n frankie goes to hollywood
n thompson twins n all the other detritus from those times
did i have to be pulled from my black place
to reminisce about this olde albatross…?
we finish our conversation
roger aint a badde guy
i end up likin’ him
actually
i hang up my bone white phone
i sit up n look around
im in a hot room
in a king size bed
i could sleep in it sideways n still have enuff room
we need one o these at home
we could get everyone in this bed
the doodles, the bumper, the twillies, me n duckling, the lot
the a.c. is switched off
its either ice station zebra
or tropical humidity
and i prefer the latter
i hate freezing a.c.
look around the room nevets, what do ya see
well
i see my ipod sittin’ in its lil charger
i see my lapptopp
i see my suitcase, an explosion of unwashed clothes
n gifts n bits n pieces
i see the tv set i will never switch on
i open the curtains
outside my room is an empty indoor swimming pool
nevets HATES indoor swimming pools
beyond that a riot of green trees
im in the south
im in ….(thinks hard)
im in…durham, north carolina
nothing would be finer than to be in carolina……
(at bully high we changed the lyrics to sixty niner)
in the mor-or-orning…..
wow im in carolina in the morning
but
well i think that maybe there are finer things…
so far
long drive from atlanta
we laugh n argue n listen to music in the vans

virgin for short, but not for long
well we wont forget atlanta so soon
still feeling energised by that great night

on invisible
robby baby olde nevets is too “tired n emotional” for that
we sit around smokin n laughin and tellin’ stories about “the day”

    Still buzzing from Atlanta on my end, too, Mr. K. Drove down from South Carolina to see the show and it was magical — “Pure Chance” was ambience itself, “Two Places” was beautiful, and “Day 5” was . . . sublime. A woman beside me down front kept poking me in the shoulder and saying “This is brilliant, you know,” which I mention not because I didn’t know, but because that was the vibe in the place.

    Thanks especially for “Grind”: whether it be the Elizabethan version, the Tudor generally, or the Stuart or Plantagenet.

    Glad to hear you telling folks not to miss Rob D. He left everything on the stage in Atlanta — and judging from the rush at the merch table, which included me, the folks appreciated it immensely.

    Hey Steve,

    If you’re missing your regular pool why not virtually revisit it by visitng maps.google.

    I’m pretty sure I spied the pool at the south end of Bondi Beach.

    Make sure to check out the satellite view. You’ll probably recognize your home.

    Looing forward to the S.F. show.

    So glad Atlanta treated you well and gave you fresh new days. North Carolina is beautiful. It holds strange magic…weird things went on in green woods when I lived there. And up on high hills where you can see mountains for miles, I’d take books and (yes) a Mason jar full of iced-tea! My secret place is a subdivision now.

    You make me want to see Virginia. Never been to Virginia. Must Google and consult books on Virginia. Virginia? My late grandmother’s name. Loved that name.

    It’s been said, but while your rants are great (they get a certain rise, don’t they? and what would be the point without the counterpoint?), it’s just reflex to be happier for someone who is in the middle of being happy themselves. Happy you guys are currently happy. I secretly wonder what will piss you off next.

    sellersville ya say…well its kind of in the middle ,.. out there, when we was there scoutin it out the other

    day as i said small town ,,…i saw an old barber shop and a day spa cross the street from the old bar in front of the theatre ..so small town ..half a town …but ,…i think a nicey nice venue nontheless..there are trees,.. and a park wit a small ..really small waterfall ,..cozy enough theatre

    also looks like a fine place to jazz it up take a small walk,..there was a veggie wrap on the menu at the bar and a super nice waitress

    this block of brick buildings definitly has an unmistakable old pa feel,.. the closest seating left was row o ,..not too too bad

    its quiet{at least on a monday afternoon }its green ,..the old man washing off steps at the saloon was smiling

    definitly a one horse town but it almost seems as if it shifted a rift somewhere and the whole place appeared just for all of us to enjoy on friday ,….i think ill head back on saturday and see if place is still there…

    Don’t call me naive.. don’t scoff… I’m still a newbie as fandom goes — the Church for a couple of years now and dear Rob D. for two whole weeks, but: my secret fantasy is that at the end of the tour, Rob & the Church will decide that had such a good time together that they will mesh into one entity and rise up to destroy all the crappy music ruling the day right now. They will be the uber-band and ascend a throne of all mighty, good rockin’ music righteousness.

    That would be cool…

    πŸ™‚

    I second (or third, was it?) the love story angle. I’d love to hear more about the wife & the family as I know very little about either (my husband *the one who turned me on to The Church* and I didn’t even know you were married now, Mr. K).

    Speaking of Jazz. I got me copy of Beside Yourself in the mail yesterday. That first tune “Jazz” is a real killa. How come ya don’t play that one? I know you don’t take requests, but how about a little – I dunno, “Disappointment”? “Disenchanted”? “Disappear?”

    SK –

    AH YES! WON-DER-FUL! The band is back to right and all is splendid now – no heap-whammey-headaches and no overwhelmin’-Blue. Excellent. To top it all off “Eat a Peach” too – now that’s sayin’ it brother – one of my Summer2006 CD purchases earlier in the season and, ’tis true, ’tis all All-Right.

    Enjoy Enjoy Enjoy, the travelin’ and the Land and peoples, and bring it all to the MotorCity (we use to be anyway) – and much much Enjoy a-after!

    The American south is a hard place for vegetarians to exist in. Fortunately an Indian gentleman bought my town’s Subway and introduced the veggie patties to the locals (yokels). Knowing that cattle are considered sacrosanct in Hindu culture, I wonder what he thinks of the corpulent lassies working the counter -and the grossly overweight NASCOWs which shuffles through each day (I saw a guy get two meatball subs with DOUBLE meatballs yesterday!).

    Atlanta was indeed fine. As fine as any Church show I’ve seen. I’ve been lucky — they’ve all been good. Even the NYC Steveless in… oh god how long ago was it? I lose track.

    We were the happily married (thanks to your music) in the front bunch, dealing with Ebullient Drunken Man Playing Loud Air Guitar With Wahwah Pedal beside us. Me jumping up and down on the very rocking “Easy” and hubbie-the-beefcake with his blue eyes and rapt expression throughout. Thank you for putting that look on his face. He didn’t stand still, but you did make him all so beautiful. I will treasure it.

    If I’d known… If I’d known the merch table was the doorway to your cavern of Ali Baba, no goodies would have been spared in lieu of thanks! Baklava from Adonis, chocolate-covered blueberries from my homeland, homemade vΓ©gΓ©patΓ© from my kitchen (not Martika’s, but…), a compilation of kitchy French musique… One can dream.

    We are the shy.
    We are ones who love you, and your music.
    Your voices are like old friends.
    We want to see you again.

    Please don’t stop. It’s always so, so good.

    Did you feel the love we channelled to you? There’s more where that came from. Just keep coming back. It’ll be there.

    V!

    P.S. Atlanta coincided with our anniversary. Can’t think of anything more absolutely appropriate.

    I just checked out R Dickinson’s website.

    I have a nose fetish and his is just gorgeous!

    I promise I will listen to his music once I get over my nose thing.

    To be a good human being is to be enduring a kind of openness to the far-out, an cleverness to guardianship uncertain things beyond your own restrain, that can lead you to be shattered in very outermost circumstances for which you were not to blame. That says something very outstanding with the condition of the honest life: that it is based on a trust in the fitful and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a spy than like a prize, something fairly feeble, but whose mere special beauty is inseparable from that fragility.
