hello my little darlin’s
olde dj stevie k in da house
how are you today?
i trust youre well….
probably just need a lil dose
of yer sk mixture
get you back on top
in no time….

sometimes i wonder why im writing this blogge
ego?
yep, that must account for some of it
im just hooked on the instantaneity of the
whole thing..
i write this
and next second
you read it
from wherever
and theres a lotta strange places pop up
on the olde monitor
all over the world
i guess thats gotten me addicted
im putting so much time into this damn thing
spending an hour a dayin fronta a ray spitting computer
just to tell ya
technology sucks
ha ha
i dunno
i had some bigge habits in my day
but this blogge got its hooks in me
its a challenge to overcome
evry day

lots going on w/ the band
everything in flux
nothing concrete to reveal
things being lined up etc
takin’ care o bizness etc
i dunno
im very superficial
i hate any thing official
i cant stand the details
i hate the fine print
i never read the instructions
and i cant concentrate
on stuff im not interested in
i actually need a holiday
i need to unwind

oh no
the awful mundanity of the jet
have just intruded on my thoughts
oh god
the inane ordinariness of it all
whatever happened to my rocknroll?
BUT ARE YOU GONNA BE MY GIRL?

i dunno
its like green kryptonite
its makin me weak
i know we been thru all this before..
fuck it
i cannot
i will not
write
with this goin’ on
i am abandoning this plaice forever
i will find another cafe
where its silent
im sorry
you cant expect me to operate under these conditions
ANATHEMA!!!

but
i love you
and
i know todays entry was
MEDIOCHRE!
i will be back
with some choice stuff soon
sk

    Can totally empathize, wish ya all the best on yr quest.
    there’s a really nice cafe in rozelle / balmain called ‘the common ground’, it’s run by some people from middle earth, they may be more mens or amish mash people i am not sure, but they make very sound food. they don’t have any technology either, which i guess is no good for blogging but after having breakfast / lunch there you may feel like building a barn instead.

    he got you started
    on this whole blogg thing

    now to you sk

    ghosts of the
    bluebird theater
    you know the place
    denver baby

    john and i hadn’t been there
    since we were there
    with you steve
    the magic fun
    the thrill
    the beautiful music
    the electric night
    of almost 2 years ago
    just hanging in the air
    gave me butterflies
    when we walked in

    so we’re waiting
    patiently
    until next time …
    but it can’t be soon enough

    love
    diane

    Ugh! One would think I would learn to read my comments before posting to see if they made any sense…. The deleted entry above was mine, but it was really flaky so I’m trying again. Sorry about that!

    I realise you have high standards, but Stevie dear have you read other people’s blogs? The difference between your worst entry and my best is huge.

    For instance, in mine I have such scintillating topics as the continuing saga of the gerbil car (and the moron or morons who keeps smashing out it’s windows); my adventures at the post office; musings on laundry detergent, bondage art, and mean people; and loads more of my bitching and whining. Whoop de do da baby!

    Even your most mediocre entries are beautifully written, and your good stuff is simply stunning. I remember a review you wrote of an album (it was Gersey) and it was so wonderfully descriptive it made me order the album without hearing a single note from the band (and I love that album!). The review didn’t go into minute detail of every song, but completely captured the essence. Very few people are able to do that.

    I can often tune out outside influences (such as Jet, etc., playing in the background), but I have the feeling that a large part of what makes you so brilliant is that you are much more aware and in tune with everything around you. So it makes sense to me that for you such mediocrity is actually painful, and you aren’t just being a whiny little bastard.

    Anyway, that’s why for me at least, even your lesser entries capture a special something I rarely find elsewhere.

    I miss the music reviews you would do for Newspaper Taxi. I hope it surfaces again and yes, your blog is definitely good medicine, more soothing than the drugs Im on right now.

    Steve, you are a great record reviewer! I bought The Soundtrack of Our Lives 1st album based solely on your description of the music in a review I found on Shadow Cabinet a few years ago and it’s become my fave album after Heyday.

    Keep up the great work with yr bloggs – I’m addicted too!

    Cheers,

    Ray

    SK, a good word is “umbrage”.
    Especially relevant to matters of taste, when one is inflicted with anothers unbearable and offensive consciousness.

    Another thing, a paradox: – ethically all are worthy, valued. Aesthetically – popular culture revulsion.
    Just a thought.

    And another: Are Church fans a higher form of life? (JET fans take umbrage as they will)

    SK,
    You are writing so that we can escape our minds and glimpse yours. Despite my best yearnings, I fear I am a straight, but not for the Time Being. Thanks for your messages from the future, I feel them stretching my mind and making me want to use it more.

    And jet? In my home, we call them “The Derivatones”.

    Gotta agree heartily with eek above.

    I’ve never read a blog before this one, and don’t read any others. But this is a daily stop that I look fwd to each morning.

    SK, yeah, the coolest thing about this is the immediacy. It takes so long for an album to come out once you’ve finished it, that it must feel like its ancient history (not the song ๐Ÿ˜‰ when people start talking about it. At least that’s how I always felt with writing. By the time its published I’ve forgotten about it and moved on three infatuations down the road…

    With ye old blogge the conversation is pretty nearly realtime (whatever ‘realtime’ is..). And it’s cool on this end to fire thoughts back into that ether on the offchance that you might read them. I hope it brightens your day once in a while to know that your work is having a deep impact as it ripples somewhere out there.

    Keep writing. People like you balance out the paranoids like me who make 90% of blog entries private so that no one can read them and use them for blackmail. Sharing is good! Really it is. For you. ๐Ÿ˜€

    From Kay who has been my friend for over 15 years thanks to the Choich:
    Sometimes I think…wow, had Cathy & I not gone to the Coach House so early… and had you not done the same, we might’ve never met and became friends. With that in mind, I raise my Winnie the Pooh mug and make a toast…to Steve and the boys for great music and for bringing people together.
    Salud!

    I think some Kilbeyisms on what music he does like would be excellent.
    Tell what you think the future holds for us old friends!

    Sorry to hear about your accident Sue. Worried about you. Hope you are okay. Let me know if you need anything!
