but nevets you were born to blog…..
ok ok yeah yeah cmon n help me then
what do you want to write about?
christ, muse i thought you were gonna tell me…
ok nevets lets think of something together
yeah ok…something about the early daze?
thats good and some free association…
how about a drop of the stream of consciousness…
yes yes and some hipster slang and smug in-references
and a pinch of only-half-joking bragga-rama
ok plus some silly spellings
good good…what about an anecdote from bully high?
some more about baby bumper…they like that, the ladies anyway…
i reckon some sci-fi stuff….
or another sk reinterpretation…?
moral stories “my drug hell” , “how i licked the big H”….
inside glimpses of the inner workings of the the chrunch
hippy baloney n dissing the” straights”…..
poetic flights o’fancy with arcane adjectives….ha!
putting baybee at end of a sentence…
pro-marijuana propaganda
anti-gun/war/politician diatribes
criticising your critics, i see some silly bint gave us a badde reevu…
lambasting meat eaters / trying to stop the horror of skyscraper carnivores
praising the heroes…houdini, rimbaud,homer, shakespeare etc
and favourably comparing yerself with them….ha!
abstracted fragments
detached transmissions
automatic responses
drug-addled bullshit! yes!
yes! and stoned rambles
a load of old space rock opera tripe!
cosmic toffee on a galactic scale
meanlingless codswallop dressed up as sage advice….
some humour, i guess
some tragedy too……for balance
mystery?
honesty!
you wanna be candid?
just tell the truth…
how ever you see it
dont talk down to em
dont grovel to em neither
treat em like friends
treat em like youre happy they read this thing
treat em with a bit of distance
and a bit of love
that should do
ok
lets begin
we’re outta time
good bye from me
goodbye from me

    don’t compare yourself to picasso
    he was a sexist womaniser
    surely your not either of those (anymore!)
    are you?
    you are so damn good at writing it makes me ill how easily and well you express yourself
    but it appears to be takin its toll
    perhaps after nov 22
    (you will continue won’t you?)
    you should only write every other day
    or when you feel really inspired
    honestly, your a creative person and i think you enjoy expressing yourself this way
    but anything can become drudgery when you feel you have to do it
    don’t look at this as an obligation

    anyhow, glad to hear your painting
    i’m not an art expert, but i do know what i like
    and i’m anxious to see more of your work

    take care

    Did you here that Steve Wynn the owner of Picasso’s “Le Rêve,” a 1932 portrait of his mistress, Marie-Thérèse Walter, accidentally put his elbow through the painting just after he had negotiated to sell it to billionaire collector Steven Cohen for $139 million. That would have been a sales record for a piece of artwork. Apparently Wynn’s elbow was responsible for $40 million worth of damage. His wife took it as a sign to keep the painting.

    I wondered if you’d heard some of Peter Namlook’s work – jeez, now that’s a prolific dude; something like 150 albums to his name! But he doesn’t have to write words, so comparisons with our somnambulent word wrangler wouldn’t be fair.

    I found a lot of his stuff on emusic.com and bought a several albums, including his collaborations with Mr Inoue (who’s solo work was not pleasing to the ear). Steve, have you heard his “Dark Side of the Moog” series? Namlook’s (and various partners’) take on old Floyd albums – right up your street, I reckon.

    Thanks for the daily insight….a blue dressing gown? Fluffy slippers, too?

    ‘HA!’ that was a a fantastic read, i think its only a matter of time before ya get to host your own show…
    i had a dream last night that i saw the church at some packed out club near the water, it was a brilliant show, you guys played for what seems like hours and hours, the whole venue was pumped, people going nuts, girls taking their tops off, sweat everywhere, just like a lenny kravitz video, people hanging from the ceiling, climbing over one another, audience mezmerized in some ecstatic frenzy, after the show i walked to my car with a group of initiates all agreeing it was the best concert they have ever seen. i woke up with a big smile, great dream.

    When I’m feeling down and blue
    Nevets Yeblik to rescue
    he makes me smile, laugh out loud
    forget my woes and worries

    He’s a genius, that we know
    and a special person
    trying to spread words of good
    and enrich our lives with reason
    whatever our believings

    Whatever are we all to do
    come November 22?
    Will he stay or will he go
    leave us all in the dark
    forever missing he and his muse
    and many lively discussions

    Please SK reconsider
    and to us deliver
    news of Time Being
    even here and there
    better less than emptyness

    We all love and admire
    SK, Nevets and Yeblik
    he’s one of a kind
    that’s fer sure
    friend of mother earth and more

    What more can he do
    come November 22
    only to continue

    Luv Therese

    Careful SK, methinks your muse is plotting a potential take-over of your blog kingdom. Better set him a limit otherwise it’ll be remaned “the muse being”.

    Either that or enforce the rule that YOU make all the gags around here.

    …it’s funny you should mention your muse….

    My muse ran into yours the other day up the shops. I think they had a chat then nipped into the ‘Bergs for a spot of lunch and ended up having a few too many sherbets…can you imagine…?! They were laughing their heads off apparently. What about? I wonder. (Possibly what a shite blogger I am – forgot my log-in password after one day. Your muse metioned she was taking her annual leave at the end of November….)
    My muse was a little the worse for wear when she next came to me, hung over, quite frankly. I find she gets very bossy at these times. She’s normally a great laff but she’s quite cantankerous when she’s been on the turps.
    Maybe your muse has been out on the tiles again, hence the stroppiness…?

    Au revoir

    Just wanted to say we are in the same musical boat. I dont like the processed garbage streaming the airwaves these days. At least they play your music on XM satellite radio… or so i hear.
    Thats why i love your music so much. Its so different from all of the executized and executed stuff i hate. And its ‘space rock’ at its finest! It’ll live on forever sir. Your not a passing fad, your a legend.
    Thanks for all that you do.

    ...being here, doing this... | 19 October 2006 at 5:17 am #

    I stumbled upon this blog accidently. I can’t even remember what I was looking for. I think I was going through the A-Z’s of bands I like….and checking out if they had a website. Strange, since I rarely see bands live these days. I don’t really like the smoky pub scene, and the ear ringing after-effects of loud music. I had been in a few ‘spiritual’ type internet discussion groups, but they were dry, dull and decided. I felt like I had nothing to contribute, and I got nothing back. I’m not here ’cause I love the Church or SK’s music (although I do like them)….I think I’m here mainly for the good conversation and good company. I enjoy reading the blog, and the comments. To me, it feels like a friendly chat between interesting people, just sharing their thoughts and points of view. I like the synchronicity that sometimes happens. I’m amazed at Steve’s ability to produce such a high level of creativity…quality AND quantity wise. I reckon it would take me a year to write what he can write in a week! (and it would be decidedly less creative and interesting). But I think I’m here mainly because I’m tired of the “…been there, done that…” set. The decided ones. The ones that think they know all the answers, and have stopped looking. Stopped questioning. Stopped thinking. Auto-pilot anaesthesia. They are the ones that will lead this planet, this humanity to oblivion if left unchallenged. This blog challenges. It may just be a tiny speck in the continuum of conscious life…but it is an alive and breathing speck, a dynamic speck. The spectrum of growth and change is made up of like-minded specks. The question we all face is…is our world doomed, or can we turn things around? How we answer that question determines how our children will answer it. They look to us for guidance. Our attitudes, answers, and actions are CREATING their future. If we think and say there is no hope…there will be no hope…”Sorry kids, but you may as well give up now…all we’re really doing is re-arranging deck chairs on a sinking ship.”

    Been there, done that.

    It doesn’t work.

    Time for some optimism, hope and…perhaps…just a miracle or two will follow.

    Biography?
    Blah.
    Too much author intrusion, not enough uncut SK.
    Would be better if various events were just listed n SK’s comments followed:

    Hamburg 1986, MWP quits Church and runs away. Steve, Pete n Ploog play gig as three-piece, inc. cover of Desdemona.

    and then we get SK’s comments on what happened.

    Wouldn’t that be better than some other bloke telling us what happened, complete with scene-setting, exposition, blah blah n maybe a sentence of input from Steve if we’re lucky?

    some sci-fi stuff, yeah!

    watched Dark City this past weekend, think it was recommended by someone on here, or perhaps nevets himshelf. Very cool. The idea of all those personalities buried within us, people we were, relationships and memories barely remembered, just ghostings really. A crystalline truth…

    Finally saw Donnie Darko too. Really fucking enjoyed it. Brought back a few memories when milky way came on the car radio. First time I heard it was similar, sitting in my father’s car one hot spring day, dreaming…

    Darn that Muse and its pushiness! How dare that muse just wake you out of a solid slumber and make you smoke herbs, and force you to write a blog for history’s sake…especially afetr making you paint all night. I tell ya, I just don’t know what I would do if that muse was trying to run my life like that. Is nothing sacred? Not even rest??? HA!!! I love this stuff. You’re the best, Kilbo. Have a great day today…and ofcourse EVERYDAY!! Say “hey” to the family and have FUN whatever you do…or should I say, whatever that darned MUSE feels you should do. Peace and love, Steve.

    dear Steven,
    how easy spreads the bohemian spirit, as johnette sung in a concrete blonde song “when i was a fool”:
    I re-read silly lines
    That made sense at the time
    Pages all stained with tears and red wine
    And I walk through the airport and see magazines
    Every face that I see
    So much younger than me
    And I smile to myself how I don’t even miss
    My glorious past or the lips that I’ve kissed
    And I think to myself that how easy this is
    Easy to breathe, easy to live

    And I wonder why I tear myself in two
    Over how to be, what to say and what to do
    And I know you liked me better then
    And I know you liked me better when I was a fool
    …I was a fool
    …mm
    …I was a fool
    …mm

    So I live in these days
    But I still have my old ways
    ’cause the future, somehow, has yet to arrive
    And I see all around me the women on time
    Kids and divorces and crisis in midlife
    and do I surrender and give up my dream
    for a brick in the wall and a washing machine
    grow up and get real
    for a kid in their teens
    who won’t care what I’ve done
    where I’ve been, what I’ve seen

    And I wonder why I tear myself in two
    over who to be, how to be and what to do
    and I know you liked me better then
    and I know you liked me better when I was a fool
    …I…was a fool
    …I was a fool
    …I was a fool

    I’m free to a fault
    I’m 45
    I’m playing guitar
    I’m living my life
    Fly down the highway
    Sun on my face
    I belong to nobody
    I belong to no place

    peace n love, ever after november
