the theatre n its bubble
ok….
here i am presented with a strange task…
to review myself….
i mean
how do ya review yourself…?
i guess i was alright
i ever so slightly muffed a cuppla lines
nothnig major…
i just didnt quite get em right
actor schmactor
i been acting all my life
playing a child
ah….
that was a tedious part
to be the co-star in my own life
to a buncha adults
and i, a mere kid
smarter than all of em too…
frustrated by their shenanigans
now im a daddy-oh
my kids all think theyre smarter than me
and im frustrated with their shenanigans…
and im acting

i congratulate you for choosing me
in this mundane problematic world
we have each other
close the door
and lets say

and i finally cash in
when im playing golf with my “attorney”
and bickering wth my “p.a.”

im gonna still be yer guerilla on the frontline
shocking people
BY GIVING EM SOMETHING GOOD!

i wouldnt say so…
its all mixed up
sings poor dead ben orr
n his voice goes on n on non non
oh yes my play
can i act?
i been acting that im a musician for 30 years
i walk onstage n i act that im important
and that there is “significance” in what i do
and compared to fucking jet or brittnee or pat boone
or enid blyton or the oc or a footy game..
well i guess there is…
i act pleased to be there
and i act aloof
i or i act like im “sent”
or im sent like i act
or i dunno
i act like the real thing
so when did i become the real thing
whats real?
whats a thing?
whats what?
i peel off these layers
but theres always another veneer
just underneath
like this universe
like love itself
thanks to my lovely sister in lore amy s
for watching the doodles+bumpa
n letting nk see what i been doing with my time
me :do you think i can act?
nk :uh-huh…
well
the curtain comes down
the crowds disperse
the ushers change
the money gets counted
a smoke n a drink
goodbye
goodbye
into the warm wet night
laughing n joking

    ARRRGGHHHH!!!! i knew i shouldn’t have switched over to the new blogger….my comment vanished. **grinding teeth**

    **sigh** okay….let’s see if i can remember what the heck i said….

    i was laughing at this blog today because we all have different masks for the different facets of ourselves. we’re never the same person from moment to moment, so it changes.

    i also said that it is very sweet of you, steve, to offer tix to ((‘~_~’)). i’m sure she would love the pick-me-up. she needs that and a lot of hugs right now.

    you’re right~~just how DO you review yourself?? that’s a toughie.

    …..well, that’s not exactly what i said before, but close. i wonder if i can switch back?

    Well, I’ve met you heaps of times sk, and I love the person I meet each and every time! It’s not all just an act is it? I suppose we all act differently in different situations, ie: I act like a starstruck (and lovestruck!!) teenager when I’m around you, but it’s not an act, I just can’t help it!!!
    I can’t wait to see you “act” next week at the Harvest Festival.

    Love you and all your layers always,

    Steven,

    You are certainly an enigma wrapped in a contradiction.

    When I met you, yes you seemed a loof (what is a loof?) I’ve a feeling ’twas a combination of jetlag, the very confusing and positively unexciting world premiere of “Shriek”, and maybe a bit of wacky tabacky. I had a feeling was only seeing small part of the whole Time Being. Perhaps more will be revealed on next U.S. tour…

    Let us know how Chrissie’s B. Hind looks these days.

    n.p. Radio Massacre International, “Lost in Space” (don’t know if you listened to their disc yet, but this one’s a 6-CD box of unreleased trax just out by these U.K. spacerockers. Plenty of space to get lost in, too!)

    we all act from situation to situation…depending on who we’re around, or what we’re trying to get across or accomplish…or hide even. i think we all have so many different facets and sides to our personalities that it gets to where you just turn on the one you need or feel like.
    congrats on the success of your play man! wish i could see it. great blog today…they’ve all been really good lately. once again, setting high standards…

    If one doesn’t conform to established categories, one must pretend to… and the categories shift, depending on the situation. If one doesn’t pretend (or not well enough), one will be considered strange, dangerous, insane (pick one). It’s about pretending to fit into society, to blend with all the well adjusted people, to keep them from trying adjust, cure, diminish.

    IMO.

    You “became the real thing” the day you said “‘allo, Joycie! I’m The Time Being, but you can call me Steven, or you can call me son. Either way, I ain’t your average “straight” and I gotta hankerin’ for spacecakes and soy milk!! Ya got any on ya? Hey, I ‘ear Oz is nice. Let’s say you, me-n-pops truck on down there and check it out at some point. Wow, I also gotta real bad itch to pluck some sort of…string or somethin’!! What to do, what to do…” And the rest is history.

    Whatever you “decide” to be, we’ll always love ya! Glad the play went well. I am sure you had no problems improvising when necessary! BTW “All Mixed Up”…love that song. Truth be told, The Cars’ “The Cars” was one of my very first favorite records!

    Also, that was very awesome of you to offer that to our “Koala Friend.” 🙂

    Hey, ((‘~_~’)), I also would like to wish you strength and warmest thoughts. I know you are the one that actually has to “go through” this, but we are all here for you in spirit. When I read your comment the other day, I have to admit I was crushed, just thinking “why??” You are always so up-lifting. I hope this can offer some hope…Sending you much love and support.

    Also, Rest. Mark, hearing about your friend…I am so sorry for your loss, brother. Hang in there.

    Much Peace and love to EVERYONE here on TTB. This is a special place and if it weren’t for our Kilbey…well, do I have to say more??? Time is precious, so let’s all just make the best of it while we’re still kickin’.
    Cheers,

    The Zoo – Fri 12 Jan 07
    Starring SK as Peter

    As your beautiful baby b would say
    “Wow”, that goes for me too. Thought you’ld be good, but wow, not that good! Where does all this talent come from? You certainly looked the part (great hair cut by the way)serious, but a couple of funny moments too. I’ld say you’ve done a bit of acting before. Really enjoyed it, ended all too soon. Glad it was in a small place so you felt like you were a bystander in the park, listening to the conversation. Packed to the rafters, sure if you did Zoo2 would be another sell out. Congrats & thanks for a great end to the week.

    Love t

    p.s. Sorry forgot to say that Sebastian was excellent too, you both complimented each other very well.

    Seeing two of your girls away and starting this play are two huge changes and it’s ok to feel a little unsure of yourself and experience differences in the way you perceive yourself. Have you actually ever been to the end of a rainbow? I was once, and the most amazing thing was was that it did not stay in the exact same place; it moved around alot and you could never really be in or really stand in the exact spot that was the end of the rainbow. I think that sometimes, when we come very close to a meaningful part of ourselves, the same sort of phenomenon happens. Everything about you becomes really fucking illusive. So different than seeing ourselves, or anything, from the relative safety of distance.

    Thanks for sharing your difficult times with us though. It sounds like that at times it can hurt a lot to be you, but if it’s any consolation, my life would be incredibly bland and shallow if you decided to keep it all to yourself. Your desire to perform and share your thoughts and experiences, in whatever art form, with people helps a lot of us to make sense of things we can’t describe as well or as beautifully. Maybe, at the times that it all feels like a burden and a curse to you, you could imagine that it is, on the flipside, a gift.

    ps: as a side note, I have met you dozens of times, long ago, and it didn’t seem like you were ever really there, so “aloof” isn’t quite how I would describe you. But once, Peter Koppes gave me his full attention by scaring the shite out of me and MWP joined in by giving me a cockroach skewered on a stick. In retrospect, it is hilarious to remember, but at the time I think I hid behind a sofa.

    Good luck tonight. You have a lot of people rooting for you (in America that means cheering for you, ok?)!

    THEATRICAL VIAGRA (in a radiator shop in Bondi)

    by B.Bon

    You may have heard the expression ‘off Broadway’……

    Well, this production was off, off, off, off Broadway. The entrance to the Bricklane Workshop is through a roller door on busy, buzzy Curlewis St, Bondi. Formerly a radiator shop: a long, thin, brick cavern stretches before you as you enter the door. There is paint peeling from the brick walls and a feeling of urban decay about the venue. As this is to be an evening of ‘garage theatre’ it is most appropriate. The space is the working studio of painter Andrew Hmelnitsky. His work is displayed around the walls as one enters and he has designed and painted the set for the play. Boy, can this guy paint!! Any of you art collectors out there should look him up. I’d like to spend more time looking at his work but fear not getting a seat so we hustle down to the end of the workspace as quite a few punters are arriving. Behind a black curtain 30 or 40 chairs have been arranged to face the corner in what previously would have been a large garage. The set comprised a rich, green painted back drop representing Central Park, New York. There are two park benches set perpendicular to one another and a couple of frail ‘trees’ suspended from the ceiling.

    The play is ‘The Zoo Story’ by Edward Albee. I googled him and found out that he also wrote ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?’ and that ‘his works are considered well-crafted and often unsympathetic examinations of the modern condition.’ Right. So probably not a comedy…..

    The crowd shuffles in slowly and proceedings are delayed for some reason. More and more arrive and it’s soon standing room only. Anticipation builds and then suddenly Peter (Steve Kilbey) strides onstage. He is costumed in the beige linen casual suit of an aging (but not old) middle class intellectual: complete with cravat and copy of Jean Cocteau.There is something of the fop and the poser about this gentleman as he reads his French poetry on the public park bench. He is soon interrupted by a loud stranger who seems intellectually compromised in some way. Sebastian Goldspink wastes no time in establishing his character Jerry and Jerry’s agenda. He wants to TALK. He is forceful and overbearing. He is a larger than life illustration of all the individuals we would normally shy away from in public spaces – his gestures and actions are large and his presence is menacing. Peter patronisingly engages the man in conversation….a conversation that Jerry steers towards Peter only briefly as a way of absorbing him into his ongoing monologue. He garners enough information about Peter and his life to ruthlessly throw it back in his face as the encounter slowly unfolds; his ammunition against Peter is Peter himself. But he does not turn on Peter immediately….

    Kilbey plays Peter as a short tempered conservative, unused to anyone challenging his position or status, let alone a stranger in a park. He flusters and harrumphs through Jerry’s rambling diatribes…..sometimes bored, sometimes speechless, sometimes scared. During Jerry’s most gripping descriptions of his life and activities in the underbelly of society, Kilbey as Peter seems transported into Jerry’s grimy reality, a reality he has only ever secretly imagined inhabiting, as Peter’s most secret longings are far removed from his wife and children and the aspirations that accompany a traditional middle class life.

    Goldspink comes in to his own as the performance approaches it’s climax. He imbues this character with a forceful and intimidating physicality that fills not only the entire small stage but the entire garage! He now has Peter in the palm of his hand, Peter knows he should leave this misfit to his own unruly devices…but he cannot tear himself away. Goldspink has layered his character in such a way that we too are drawn in, waiting for the next gritty tale, our view into his world. Kilbey does not reveal as many layers…..because in all certainty Peter doesn’t have them. He is a smug and self satisfied prig whose notion of himself and the world he inhabits is being dangerously challenged. He rails, finally drawn to his feet in defence. The struggle that ensues has an unlikely victor. Doesn’t it? Issues of control, revulsion and our expectations of ourselves as well as others in society are raised; it would be easy for these characters to come across as caricatures, but this has been avoided.

    The action is potent and relentless. A two man show of this length and intensity is no mean feat! I have to say this whole experience did have a very New York vibe to it….and I liked it a lot. Sebastian Goldspink is undoubtedly a talent and Steve Kilbey plays out of his oeuvre astonishingly well. A challenging piece in a unique venue. Much applause to all concerned. Lucien Savron has pulled together a great show, and should be supported in his aim to stage more performances for local communities in community venues such as Bricklane.

    Bravo, I say, Bravo!

    An excellent review, B. Bon.

    Congratulations, Steve. It sounds like yet another artistic triumph.

    I remember reading once that you said you’d like to write a rock opera one day but that no-one’s topped “Tommy”.

    Hows about you write that opera and let us be the judges?

    I’ve had the privilege of meeting you backstage after a show. I was also awestruck/starstruck and totally uncool but you were very gracious.

    Your autograph in my copy of “Earthed” is one of my most prized possessions.

    There’s a lot of love in the room for you today, SK. I just want to thank you (yet again) for enriching our lives as you do.

    its funny i always stayed outta yr space when ever i got the chance to meet ya, i was very self concious that one should never meet their idols but you kinda blew the myth on that one despite my horrid nervous inability to artiulate myself very well and i just bumble along as an over zealous fan. anyway the times i met ya i always got a really articulate smart and warm person who may wear loads of masks (like we all do in public) but also let something really authentic shine through via their art. so authentic it rocks my world, so ya know keep yr masks man, just keep those fucking brilliant creations coming…
    i’m so sad i can’t see yr play but i have sent two friends tonight who will be there. Best wishes steve.

    ...being here, doing this... | 13 January 2007 at 11:04 am #

    Hello ((‘{~_~}’))

    I’ve just read your comments post from a couple of days back.

    You are in our thoughts.

    One organisation that takes a holistic approach to cancer treatment is the Gawler Foundation in Victoria, Australia.

    They are well worth a look.

    And here are some words that I find inspiring as I deal with health challenges of my own (CFS)…

    Health is identical with authentic power. It is the alignment of the personality with the soul. The soul is that part of you that reaches for harmony, cooperation, and reverence for life. An authentically empowered human is one who is living a meaningful, joyful, gratitude-filled life. Consider someone in his midthirties who has a healthy body, runs eight miles a day, and with every quantitative assessment can prove that he is healthy. Yet he is miserable, and no one wants to be near him. Contrast him with someone who has a physical body that is decaying of AIDS yet who is radiant, knows why she is alive, and is living her life gloriously. Everyone wants to be with her. Who is healthy and who is ill? From the perception of sacred medicine, the individual whose body is dysfunctional but whose life is filled with meaning is more healthy than the one who can run a marathon but who lives in rage and sees himself as a victim.

    Take care of yourself ((‘{~_~}’))

    I’ll applaud whenever you want me to, SK (but will it be the real me applauding?) Today it is, no doubt!

    Take care of yourself ((‘{~_~}’))

    …but I fucked up lo and behold. 🙁

    It’s supposed to be lo and behold, not low and behold.

    Ok ok, I’ll shut up now.

    Well…not quite yet…

    My best wishes and continued good vibes to ((‘~_~’)) Miracles do happen and we’re all holding out for one for you.

    SK — I think the people I distrust the most are those who say they never act. I don’t think it’s possible to get through life without ever acting. I suspect those who claim (or even completely believe) they never put on an act just can’t or don’t want to see it. So you’re being more honest than most — even if you are a slippery little devil at times.

    Acting is great fun, isn’t it? I, however, discovered the real me in the wee hours of this morning when I smelled smoke and saw strange lights outside the front door. I opened it to find the 20 feet tree separating the house I’m in from that of the neighbor’s spectacularly aflame and just mere feet away from the gas main of the house. After a rushed call to the fire brigade the garden hose was used and it was just a good thing that I hadn’t gone to bed early as I’d wanted or the fire would’ve hit the gas main and incinerated me along with the neighbors and god knows who else.

    The off-license about 8 doors down was aglow with flames as well and it seems that some stupid punks decided that they’d have a fun Friday night in Londonium torching things up and down the road. I’ll be sleeping with one eye open from now on. 🙁

    oh my dear {{(-+-)]}
    (now you look like a koala!)

    Hysterical! I love it! Maybe you can just call me koala girl, seeing that you will not use copy and paste. You got pretty close this time, your best attempt to date. To create my eyes ~ use the key above the Tab key with Shift held down. The mouth key _ is the one next to the number zero, again pressing Shift (if you can be bothered).

    imagine when you show up at ye olde boxx office
    you: killer in the supprt band as put mee on the daw
    impertinent whippersnapper: woshyorenaymthen?
    you:its ms {[(-+-)]} + 1
    i.w. : i cant see none of them…you aint ({[}]) are ya?
    you : look here i demand to see the mannyja
    chrissy b.hyndes(whos just walking past) : let that woman in!
    i.w.: but but but
    c.b.h(wjwp): did you dare to say butt butt to chrissy b. hyndes?
    you(miserably): oh let me in…i can hear the cherch has started..

    Steve, what an unbelievably sweet, dear man you are! You got me teary yet again! Your offer of putting me on the guest list is very touching, I would love to accept! Thank you! Trust you to have me laughing at myself … and chrissy b. hyndes! I’ll have to get to that show. I have commented before on how funny you are and how you’d make a great comedian. Is there anything you cannot do?

    must seriously take on sculptcha n bal-ay

    Sculpture, yes! But please no ballet! For some reason I just imagined you in a tutu, a pink one.

    Thanks Samosanx, Ben V, JJ, Sue Cee, Being here, doing this, Daniel 30, 9, Nic, Eek, restaurant mark, and Daberhasher for all your love and support, it really means so much, words cannot express the feelings I had when reading all your comments. A big hug to you all, I am truly overwhelmed! Restaurant mark, thanks for mentioning your friend, I like hearing about survivor stories. Cecilia, GIST support groups in Australia? I was told by my oncologist that there weren’t any. I will ring the Cancer Council. Thank you! Being here, doing this, I am very sorry to hear that you have Chronic Fatigue. I wish you lots of strength, love and energy. Thanks for the Ian Gawler link (I have read his book) and your inspiring words.

    Steve, sounds like the play was a big success. Congratulations!

    B Bon, a most impressive review!

    Eek, thanks for the link to the Zoo Story. You did it yeah! I recently attempted to send you instructions on how to create links but couldn’t work out how to send the HTML instructions without it becoming HTML. LOL!

    Hi, i was looking over your blog and didn’t
    quite find what I was looking for. I’m looking for
    different ways to earn money… I did find this though…
    a place where you can make some nice extra cash.
    I made over $900 last month having fun!
    make extra money now
