drop kids at school
go swimming
do yoga
work on painting
painting of some woodland creatures cavorting in forest
very colourful
early night
have a horrible cold n cough
today i’m getting my blood tested for a load of things
might as well find out where i stand
vis a vis cholesterol diabetes cancer etc
so i’m getting everything tested
will let you know…..
had a long talk to my accountant davey r
who’ll be happy to know
his name appears in the index of my biography
wow hes a really nice guy too
and we talked for a while
now today
i gotta ring the taxman or woman personally
and negotiate with em
they wanna talk to me…..!
ok well i’ll let ya all know how that one goes
talk about 2 worlds colliding..
and before we start that whining carping idiot off again
(and sure enough it did…how predictable)
lemme say
i have been paying taxes since 1972
ive never missed a year until 2007
i believe in a socialist system
ie
try n look after everybody
free health etc
and ive always been happy to pay
and in my “good” years thats been a lot
ive paid a load of tax in my 54 years
anyway
as ya know
i got a cuppla big lump payments in 2006 2007
i neglected to put any tax aside
(unlike most of you i am not taxed at source)
and voila
i’m in a spot of bother
seeing i am now pretty broke
and due to the nature and irregularity of my payments
eg gigs records paintings
i cannot guarantee any real payment schedule
i dunno if i can pay 200 hundred bucks(for example) a week back
(and they want about 500 a week!!)
on top of every other thing
i dunno where thats gonna come from….
i mean
i want to pay off my fucking tax
i will eventually pay off my fucking tax
but at the moment
i cant say how long its gonna take
again
this is my own problem
i’m not being victimised or anything
i was just naive and procrastinating and foolish
an old accountant told me 29 years ago
when i got my first music biz cheque
he said
see half of it as yours
and the other half as the tax mans
and fucking put his half away NOW!
well i did alright for so long
then i lost the plot
and now i’m trying to get back on track
so
not the kinda interview i’m used to either
see how i go…..?!
on sunday appearing at another vegan expo
i havent been a terribly good vegan lately
im sure everyday i eat something with a little milk in it
ie chocky
but overall i am 95 per cent vegan
i do my lazy best i guess
and at 54
im as loose limbed and fit as i ever was at 24
i gotta load of energy
and i get most things done
i can run around onstage hefting my heavy bass
and sing out n not lose my breath
my hair is thinner n finer but not yet greying
(only my beard)
i can create the best music of my career
i can raise my kids
i can do twenty laps
i can walk 20 miles thru the bush
i can do a hour of yoga
i can keep my lovely wife happy
and i can come up with something on here everyday
things im not so good at : officialdom
correspondence
money matters
anger management
deadlines
modesty
humility
ok
am i honest enough for you?
are you getting your moneys worth?
had a 2 year subscription from runar in scandinavia
but he didnt give me a blog theme….
sure its a hokey idea
hey i’m full of em
i like to work given some guidelines…
i like doing peoples portraits too…
i just dont like ringing up the taxman that much
but today
i will
could be a blood shedding day all round
love on ya n over ya

    your accountant will probably have told you but:

    be absolutely straight up with the tax people – very few of them are out to get you – like most human beings they will respond well to honesty

    the first thing I would do instead of trying to negotiate by phone is suggest a face to face meeting within the next few days

    before you start talking to them, work out what is the most you can realistically offer them and make sure they understand why that’s the best you can do

    also, think about alternatives you can offer – if there’s a way you can put together a lump sum offer and pay that within say 14 days then put it on the table, they might just jump at it – even if it means accepting a lot less than they could get by signing you up to a year of instalments (bird in the hand etc)

    whatever you negotiate, do whatever you can to stick to the deal you make – if it looks like you’re going to have difficulty making a payment TELL them beforehand

    (if all else fails slip them a signed copy of #23 in a brown paper bag)

    Steve, i wish i’d known about this sooner. Have you spoken to them yet? I’ve mentioned before, it’s some bright spark’s idea to get every debtor onto “an arrangement” so that the debt looks like it’s getting collected when in fact it’s just as bad it was, with less chance of getting it all back than ever. They’ll be falling over themselves to sign you up to the most reasonable of schedules.

    There’s no way they’ll make you pay more than you can in instalments – and you get to nominate the frequency. Just be extra nice and honest about your incomings and you’ll be able to put it to bed (with accruing interest unfortunately). You just can’t imagine the recidivist shysters with massive debts who get to pay 50 bucks a week.

    Good luck

    Hiya Steve,

    Man, do I know about the back-taxes thing. I do not envy you on this. In any scope of the matter, just knowing you owe the govmnt (or anyone for that matter) money (any amount)just plain sucks. A few years ago, I gave brokering mortgages a shot (one of the many “food on the table” type things I have done, with music always on my tail). I thought I could clean up and buy ahouse, build a rec. studio, etc, etc. It didn;t exactly turn ou that way though! Anyway, I wasn’t too bad at it, but I did not for the life of my soul, love it by any means. It really takes a certain type of person to do that gig, but”niet me”!! Also, alot of peeps in that biz are not very honest, not all, but some. The first place wasn’t so bad, they gave me a base salary on top of commission. They suddently made their fortunes, and got out when teh going was good, closed up shop and I had to move on. The second was pure commission based and it was rough. It was crazy, like one month I got lucky with 5-7 grand, the next couple months, not so lucky and it was more like 5-7 hundo to last several weeks/months. Nothing like a deal collapsing at that closing table to REALLY dishearten you. Living in downtown Chicago was not exactly cheap either! Some people do really well in that biz, but it just wasn’t for me. It bacame very not fun. So, needless to say, I found myself in a bit of a “bind” as I was taxed as a 1099 (“self-employment” tax and found I could not afford it, when it came time to shell out, when I was barely making it in the first place. There were 2 years I could not come up with the lump that I “owed” and said “screw it.” They would get their money…when I had it. So little by little now that I have a nice “straight” job, they simply took back any “refund” I had coming! Good, now it is FINALLY paid off, although it took 5 years! So, hang in there, SK, you’ll get it chipped away.

    I would like to try to make that double subscription, but I got a lot going on in the next few weeks as far as dosh goes, so I’m not sure how much I can drop just yet. You do give our money’s worth I’d say, and more really. As I said before, I love being a part of this and will gladly give what I can, when I can. I pray that the universe will provide with a little financial slack for you and the fam. Hell, for me too! Actually for all of us!!! Right??

    Hey, I sincerely hope your doctor’s visit goes well and labs and everything come back tip-top. Hope you’re feeling better soon too. Get some rest when you can.

    Speaking of doc visits, I gotta fly to LA (speaking of dosh) and take my brother to a Neurologist. I just gotta be there, know what I mean? He and his girl have no damned health ins. and the “access” isn’t covering much (if it is at all). (He just had a first time seizure two weeks ago, just dropped and convulsed for about 5 minutes) Very freaky, hopefully a one-time thing. He was in fact working with strobe lights at a show he was working. (he does lighting) Apparently the band had a very violent light show. He also said he drank 3 Redbulls that arvo. Hmmm. The first question I asked him was “What did you take?” as he is a dabbler from time to time. Ah well, what can you do? You just never know in this life. Now we got this “Swine Flu” scaring the shit out of everyone.

    Be well, everyone! Much peace and Love,

    Ben

    That was worth the price of entry alone.

    dearest wanker
    the big donation is 1 dollar a week
    thats less than 20 cents a blog ..
    but no one would pay you anything to write anything(so maybe that seems a lot to you)
    youre an uptight useless wanker
    a carping anonymous voice
    the record i produced (the one i nodded out in)
    was very successful for him (by the way)
    you on the other hand
    couldnt produce a record
    could you?
    what do you do?
    what can you do?
    except being so in love with me you cant stand it!
    and now your love has turned to this nagging tedium
    taking some old washed up singer like me
    to task for small imagined discrepancies
    wanker you are
    unloved
    unsung
    unknown
    untalented
    unimportant
    well you are a wanker, arent you
    maybe you could get a sponsorship with kleenex
    anyway sorry
    i gotta run n read all these glowing reviews my new

    but i’m sure we aint heard the last from you

    ..20 cents per blog to hear you cry cry and moan moan about your money problems. Not worth it. There is a fine line between bohemian and deadbeat and you have crossed the line. All that self proclaimed genius and talent and you do not have a pot to piss in. 150 people at a gig, my local Karaoke joint packs in more than that Steve. And your comments censorship to protect your little sycophantic bubble of a few dozen people, also mostly broken down and bitter. Put the advertisement button on, nobody cares. At least you will be able to keep the little dignity you have left from begging your cashless fans for money. Christ Kilbey, grow a pair of balls and be true to yourself. You are not a born beggar. Under the milky way best song in australia, nice going on that one although Australia is essentially a worthless penal colony.

    Hi Steve. I friend of mine had a persistent cough (not that I am assuming yours is). It was found that breathing in the nasty little spores from ceiling mould was the culprit. Another friend was plagued with stomach problems and didnt feel well for years until a naturopath diagnosed her as being full of fungus! (eg candida) It was through her whole system until she went on an elimination diet and now feels a million bucks. This was after many visits to doctors who shoved cameras here and there to no avail.
    And since giving up all dairy a few weeks ago, my chronic sinus problems have gone.
    Just thought I would have a bit of a waffle about allergies. Really hope your health improves soon and glad you getting a thorough checkup. Linda

    Thanks for signing the cd covers and for another amazing gig. You gave your 100% as always. The other guitar player wasn't bad either. You both agreed on a perfect songlist. Glad you played "Two Places", "Grind" "Pangea" loved them all, new & old. There was one song I hadn't heard before that I wish I knew the name of, a bit like "Two places at once", beautiful music. No-one would have known you weren't well, what a trouper!

    Hope the cough is a lot better, make sure you get your vitamins through the fruit & vegs. Glad you are having everything checked with the blood test, sure it will be ok, but is good to know the choles. etc. Also, hope things are sorted with the Tax person. Wish you could win the lottery/lotto so there would be no more worries.

    Get better soon.

    I think you need Vicks First Defence nasal spray

    It really works and I have recommended it to other people going on planes overseas when they were coming down with a cold and it fixed it up and removed all symptoms of cold no worries

    I have used it myself, just be sure not to sniff hard or snort just spray and breath normally and let it work its way down your eustachian tubes to right at the back where the cold virus develops

    only 20 dollars from supermarket!!

    Thank’s for doing another vegan event. You’re a visionary that knows veganism/vegetarianism can be a panacea for many planetary crises. I also sporadically lapse into dairy and lament it.

    Today I got an e-mail from somebody affiliated with Joan Armatrading. It said Joan’s a vegetarian who eats fish. Vegetarians do not eat fish. The fishing industry is barbaric and it is decimating marine ecosystems and biodiversity. An aquatic genocide transpires every day in the oceans and seas.

    You know, going from “Space Saviour” (which I take to be a joyous love anthem to your littlest) to the next song, Angel Street (which sounds like the diary of the horrible desolation of addiction and lost love in Stockholm) is quite a sucker punch — it really draws the emotion of each into sharp relief.

    U#23 definitely improves with each listen. I’m a sucker for Mellotron flutes and strings. What I assume is PK on an eBow is fantastic — like some otherworldly cello. MWP is brilliant as always, only more so as he matures. And your basslines have improved over the recent decades as much as your vocals have.

    One thing I will say (and it is not a criticism) is that it is an album that sounds much, much better turned up to a high volume. A lot of the subtle detail of the backing tracks gets lost at lower volumes; and since most of the songs are pretty slow tempo, it can sound a little same-same if not turned up. This is an album which should be paid attention to.

    Turn it up and it just blooms. How many times have you read the word “bloom” to describe this alubm? It’s really the ideal description.

    Nice work, Steve. I’m proud of you. This is a beautifully realized piece.

    I hope it comes off well live, assuming a lot of it ends up in your live act. I haven’t been checking your set lists — I’m voting that you don’t got too nostalgic, but I suppose you do have to compromise on some level. An audience might be disappointed if they don’t get at least a couple of familiar tunes.

    Peace

    Honestly, the energy anon uses to spew negativity around here should be flipped and used for something constructive. Like reading a book, painting, planting some trees or going outside and picking up some trash. Make your world better anon, be constructive. Winding people up is not constructive. It’s not even mildly amusing. It’s just boring and sad. Live up to your potential, anon and let us know when your new book, film, record comes out.

    Thomas Thomsen, Denmark is on the money on this one. Steve, your blog was so much better in its primordial stage when you never responded to comments or even made reference to comments. Now it has descended a notch or two into the blogger responding to comments about his blog, “moderating” comments (hello George Orwell!), and name-calling (although dick-nose did seem appropriate). Even still, I greatly enjoy your writing and never miss a day. I suspect the anon. idiot commenter here feels the same, yet has some warped obsession with attacking your character at every opportunity. Obviously he’s jealous and has some issues. Your music/writing/art is a class act, their purity not being infected by the sorry state of our popular culture. The blog could be, too.

    Yeah I do the self employed thing too and it can be tough to put away the money for taxes, even when you know you have to. There always seems to be plenty of time to catch up until all of a sudden it’s deadline time. I’ve had to scramble to make my tax payment a few times. This year I got “lucky” because last year my expenses were high, so I overpaid.

    Hope you were able to get a plan that isn’t too onerous worked out. And I hope your tests all come back with great news.

    Sometimes, when this Earth gets kind of empty
    uncertain poets with their words
    they bring new life’s mystery revelations
    while stars keep falling from the sky

    The church = The search

    Keep going, you and your company of friends! I love you since I was 17 years old (1988). Keep leading us, keep driving us!

    We are endless like the sky.
    This is just maya to me.
    (Maya: in Greece we use a word with the same sound, for “Hex(es)”)

    Feel, Reprieve, along with The awful ache, June, See your lights, The Further adventures of the time being, Tranquility, are of the most beautiful songs I’ve ever heard. And the Swan Lake, off course! Oh my! Insurpassable!

    some of the others must have been made less whining (…) i.e. Louisiana.

    From Greece with love, Vangelis

    Seiogh – yes. I’d compare Untitled #23 to the slow blooming Stargazer Lily – stunning, bold and majestic, yet at the same time both delicate and innocently pure. And Im hoping it blossoms into the pink variety, the symbol of wealth and prosperity
