    A captivating crooner, the master of melancholic melodies, the music industry’s most ardent animal rights activist and vehement vegetarian. I am not talking about the nonpareil Steve Kilbey, I am preparing to see Morrissey live in Chicago tomorrow night.

    hey Brien,
    Please come back and tell me how you like Kristeen Young.
    She’s a good friend and has opened up fo Morrisey all through Europe.

    Can’t wait to see her here. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hello mandn:

    In 2006 Morrissey’s only USA show was in Chicago. Kristeen Young opened for him and she was remarkable. Morrissey loves her. She fuses Kate Bush, The Creatures and Bjork.

    Enjoy Morrisey Brien- I’m looking forward to seeing The Only Ones – but nothing compares to Kilbeeeeeeeeeyyyyyyy. Not even a close second.

    mandn | 14 May 2007 at 7:24 pm #


    LOL! I know. I know Kristeen very well.
    I’ve been to many of her New York shows
    and was thrilled to learn she’d be touring
    with her childhood idol. I’ve yet to see them
    together though. I might be going to the
    Atlantic City show.

    Glad you liked her!

    I rediscovered The Church three months ago. I can’t stop listening to their alluring CD’s and SK’s unique CDs. For over ten years I have been primarily listening to Morrissey, The Pretenders, Tangerine Dream, Jeff Beck, Moby and Paul McCartney. Nothing compares to The Church. I am a broken record but they are a perfect blend of Pink Floyd, U2 and RadioHead.

    your poor glasses have the tell-tale signs of somebody who falls asleep while wearing them, LOL.

    you look soooo serious and stern in the second one…..hmmmm you don’t look like you’re having fun. ๐Ÿ™ but you should be. cameras are a blast.

    so, just what are you playing?? maybe working on the “mystery” project. can’t wait to see what it is. and just what is the “timbo and shaker kick beat loop” on the wall???

    ...being here, doing this... | 15 May 2007 at 5:09 am #

    with so little dialogue with which to work, how could it be that when i google “Beauty is more than skin deep” in image search, the top result is “Cosmic Cloudshine: Its Beauty Is More Than Skin Deep”?

    and how could it be that when i scroll down to the bottom of that page, and follow the link “ยป Next Article in Space & Earth science:” , it reveals this…Astronomers Get Closest Look Yet At Milky Way’s Mysterious Core?

    so what happens when we look up the date of these two links (November 03, 2005) in the TTB blog?

    do we discover the same supermassive black hole that exists at the core of the Milky Way?

    quite the contrary!

    at the core of TTB is light…

    white light

    and a simple message….

    “Page Not Found”….

    TTB is servile to none!

    Love can fucking fuck off.
    Worst thing that ever happened to me.
    It NEVER stays.
    All that heartache and emotional upheaval for…nothing.
    So in 1996 I decided I’d never suffer from it again.
    people said “Ah you wait til you meet somone else, you’ll soon change your mind, how will you be able to turn it down”, etc.
    Well I have, I did, and I always will.
    Fuck love – you’re never sticking your fucking hooks in me again.

    ...being here, doing this... | 15 May 2007 at 11:31 pm #

    Good evening

    I know there are some intelligent and feeling people on this here caboose so I have a serious question for you all:

    “How do you make love stay?”


    “divorcing yourself from wisdom divorces yourself from love. learn to distinguish between love, true impartial and compassionate love, and emotionalism that can sweep you off your feet and destroy you.

    loving is giving the highest and truest within you to your fellow beings. to love is to give the best light from your spirit, the true white light. this is love.” – from “Gift from an Angel” published by the late Eileen Goble


    love without incentive

    “what is love without motive? can there be love without any incentive, without wanting something for oneself out of love? can there be love in which there is no sense of being wounded when love is not returned? if i offer my friendship and you turn away, am i not hurt? is that feeling of being hurt the outcome of friendship, of generosity, of sympathy? surely, as long as i feel hurt, as long as there is fear, as long as i help you hoping that you may help me – which is called service – there is no love.

    if you understand this, the answer is there” – Jiddu Krishnamurti
