‘ardly unpacked my bloomin’ suitcase
and now im off
headed for
taz-mania
now i aint ever been a tasmaniac myself
its a little creepy down there i think
but um….duty calls and i must wrock
tonite is a nite off actually
in hobart
capital of taz
know where you can find a ho, bart?
actually i never say ho or whore either
i refer to women i dont like as cows or bints or scrubbers or dodgy boilers
i refer to men i dont like as pigs, wallies,imbeciles or sometimes even dick-nose
i imagine a dick-nose and a dodgy boiler could have some interesting progeny
actually i dont swear much at all
except for prodigious use of the word fuck
why do i say fuck all the fucking time
well my dad liked that word
but he NEVER used it at home in frunna mumnkids
at lyneham high you had to say fuck as many times as you could
in one sentence. eg
i fuckin’ fucked fuck-face off, he’s a fucker anyway
i fuckin’ hate him hes fucked and i hope he fuckin’well gets fucked….fuck!
i guess they couldnt get the lyneham outta the bouy…
anyway whre was i ?
the music biz is very big on the word too…
we didnt fuckin get our fuckin drinks or fuckin soundcheck!so fuck you AND them!!
yeah?
yeah!
well fuck you too!
yeah fuck u2 too!!
now if my mothers reading this
you can see mother im only using this word as an example
not actually swearing myself…
its dialogue …..
anyway today its tas and im underwhelmed by the thought
and first i ‘ave to go some where
and pick something up before airport
no fiendss not drugzz neither
some eekwipment wood ya beleaf
god im getting sick of this silly spelling too
and yes i gotta make the most of my morning with fambley
cos i got my fambley manne hat on
aurora n eve say things wistfully like
“gee dad its not the same when youre not here”
“i wish you didnt have to go today”
and they dont seem so convinced that me
strummin’ a guitar at some winery in tas
is a great reason to not be home with them
during the holidaze
the bumper is a delight
(except at nite when she turns into baby hyde)
she has her own weird dance
i mean im a muso baybee…i seen a lotta folks dancin’
but i aint never seen this before
theres some music she really likes too
like kate bush n tori amos
genesis
the cherch
nks moby record
oh yeah and the rolling stones
stevie nicks
when any of those go on
she looks at ya n flashes her eye
crouches down low n sways
often stand with all her weight on one leg
in a strange pose that reminds me of a medicine man
like shes following these prescribed movements
and shes very serious and concentrating
i mean when the doodles were that age
theyd hear music n run around the room
colliding falling over n laughing
scarlet bends at the knee
and slowly goes up n down n side to side
freezing into position occaisionally and looking up meaningfully
it is a most amusing yet confusing display
where is she getting this dance routine from
hell im even trying to emulate it onstage such is its strange charm
anyway ho- bart still looms out there
down there towards the south pole
where i dinnae really wanna go
i like my palm trees n balmy breezes
i like my warm wet grey days by the sea
yessaday we went to botanic gardens
(when i shamefully stumbled back outta bed at 2 in arvo)
i saw the very sad sight
of a baby water fowl had fallen into a pool of water
inhabited by a huge grey eel
and the parent birds couldnae get it out
standersby we trying to keep the eel away from babybird with sticks
but cruel brutal nature inevitably had its way
and mr eel had fresh baby waterfowl for his lunchy
the mummyfowl squeaked n cooed mournfully
n i said to nk
you know to that bird …she loved that baby like we love the bumper
and we both felt sad
and yes fiendss
nature is ruthless
anyway tonite hob-art
tomorrow the wino ree
i bet ya all a tenner
that there aint no internet at the hotel in hobart
ho ho
love
the being

    At first I thought, “Well Joyce won’t be reading this one!” My mum has a pathological hatred of the word ‘fuck’ – but then sometimes in traffic she’ll yell some version of it at someone and I’m like “How come you get so upset when I say it and then you say it?” Hmmmph! Parents.

    I admit, I swear way, way too much – but usually only in the car, when I’m alone, so others don’t have to hear it. And I’ve managed to keep it out of the classroom, though I did accidentally say “shit” in front of some kid in the administration office and felt like I’d corrupted him for life. Ha – and this is in a terrible gang area – the kid probably could’ve taught ME a few new naughty words.

    You wouldn’t consider putting the Bumper on YouTube would ya? She’ll be famous! LOL! I’m kidding, but your description of her dancing is a riot.

    And finally, because I have a big mouth, I just want to shout out HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my dear friend Veleska…today (today as in January 24th in the Northern Hemisphere) is her b-day and V, I hope your year is blessed…especially by another Church concert. πŸ™‚

    hi Steve.
    A lot of swearing makes me uncomfortable but the odd F word feels damn good when you’re Frustrated. If i heard my kids say it though they’d get a swift kick up the backside! πŸ™‚ Denise, at school i swear in German etc, the kids have no idea.

    Love the Baby Bumper dance groove. When mine was about 4 she would do this ‘pole dancer stripper’ type dance when music was on. Explain that to your friends!!! I’d blush like crazy but she was obviously enjoying her moves and in a way its kind of sad they become inhibited as they grow older …but less embarrassing for mums πŸ™‚

    Tassie forecast looks ok, hope you got a room you can breathe in … & an internet connection??

    Eels have always creeped me out

    I liked Tasmania when I went on holiday there back in 2000, but I think I’d have to concur with your description of the place as “creepy”, Steve. There’s a vibe there all its own. It’s not Australia. Tasmania is another country, I reckon.

    Happy birthday to you, Veleska. xx

    I’ve only recently discovered your comedy side Steve – only since the Sandringham. (The towel and other banter had us in stitches). You see, I’m sad to say that I did loose my faith and abandon the Church for some years, only recently (Enmore Theatre) coming back to the Church with faith fully restored. Anyway I never knew about this talent in comedy. I had quite a chuckle reading this blog today,(with the exception of the very sad bird story) especially the fuck story- I think it was like that in most high schools in the 70’s. I remember.
    If you are going out and about in Tasmania, good luck finding anything edible. It was almost impossible to get anything vegetarian let alone vegan some years ago. Corn chips with tomato salso (request for beans was met with looks of disbelief) was the only option at every place I went to.
    I’m finding this whole blog thing very strange as it’s all new to me – Is it art too? I think it might be and are we part of it or are we the frame? You are an inspiration.

    Church is definitely the flavour of the month. We certainly can’t forget u in olde Syd town.
    Walked into a shop who comes on radio singing UTMW? Driving along, changing stations to hear quiz q, “What do the Church & Hoodoo Gurus have in common?” first caller correct answ, both Sydney bands, (anything else in common?) Next morn turn on radio Ungarded Moment is playing. Waiting for the tv appearance (still hoping, surely some of these concerts are being taped.)

    Had to laff at bloggie yesaaday re ” i ponce all over the stage posing bumping n grinding”.
    That I want to see next wk at State Theatre, plus afew of baby b’s moves added on. Baby b is sure to be a back up dancer or centre stage herself in the future.

    Enjoy Tassie (one of the coldest places I’ve ever been to) want to go back to do Launceston area, last time Hobart yrs ago.
    Keep an eye out for those Tassie Devils, aren’t they the cutest.

    Have a rip roaring Aust Day tomorrow, I’ll be flying the flag in Sydney.

    perspective is an odd thing…and has made a wise old stone out of me…You know i say the F word quite a bit, at home and within reason…But when I’m teaching at school and i hear high school kids use it…it makes me fucking sick!!! it really is a lack of class…so i dunno…some of this blog kinda rubs me the wrong way…Where Steve thinks its amusing, I see it as cultural pestilence…or just a lack of manners….which are in bloody short supply…I am also disturbed by all these warm and fuzzy tones everyone uses….(sorry, I’ll shut up now, just commenting…and rambling–as only the worlds greatest idiot truly could)…but i think what bothers me is this: the whole fucking internment thing of internet writing and advertising oneself, a la myspace and fiendster (rip) really bothers me…there is something mob-like or pandemic about it…if ya catch my drift…D~ of the Nassarenes$…

    Kate Bush and Tori Amos would make me wanna fucking dance too!

    I can’t think of Tasmania (a place I’ve never been) without conjuring up images of the Warner’s cartoon Tasmanian Devil character with the Mel Blanc “voice.”

    Poor bird – I’m reminded of an interview I read once where Roger Waters was recalling rescuing an injured little bird once as a schoolboy, and brought it to the teacher (a nun) who took it from him – and threw it into the trash, telling him to sit down. That kinda resonated with me, as I was educated by nuns meself as a boy. They could be intimidating figures – what the fuck were they thinking?

    Good luck with the Ho-Barte gig. Hope it takes flight and soars.

    Fuck I love to fucking swear! Very un-ladylike but fuck it, I don’t care. I only swear when I feel comfortable around a person. Now with you Steve, after getting to know you a bit I have no problem saying fuck but I’m not quite ready to say the C-word yet. So maybe after a couple of years reading your blogg I might get to that stage. Though I can’t see you getting into the C-word.

    fuck is the most versatile word in the english language. where would we be without it?

    my girlfriend (whom ya met in sellersville) isn’t a native english speaker. she’s picked up some awful words from me, says them in such an innocent way – cause she knows more or less what they mean, but not what they WEIGH… As a writer i spend waaay too much time alone in a room, swearing at the computer, mumbling nasty things… I think that’s where she picked it up.

    Have fun in Tas. End of the earth. Sounds like my kinda place.

    loved hearing about scarlet’s dance. mine have this casio keyboard with the pre-canned beats…you know, the really bad ones. well anyway, we’re always working on music here so they like to do the same. saturday they called me in to hear their beat (song) and to watch their dance…so amelia (wife) and i went in and it was literally ten minutes later before we stopped laughing. strange versions of the classic robot dance! hilarious!

    the word fuck is one of my faves…so many uses. there’s fuck yeah!, ahh fuck, fuck you…see just right there ya got excitement, bummed out, and anger…and there’s thousands more, surely.

    Spookily I can say I saw the boys play in Brum. GAF tour. Can’t imagine it now. A stack of us went from south Brum (20+). All big fans. Most keep in touch with the output of The Chrunch via me and buy the odd CD.
    Anyway if there are no other Euro dates I will be en route to Amsterdam too.
    I’m looking forward to seeing your Bumper Dance, SK. Bring it on!

    Every cloud has an univited but sometimes silver lining.
    Carling Academy Islington allows kids, so me and my eldest Son have booked. Two tickets sorted and on their way to me. He’s going to have to miss School for the first time but it’s all part of his education. I’m now very emotional ‘cos i’ve so longed for him to see The Church – it’ll be a long day for him but magical. My beautiful wife won’t be there. She’s the one in pink on the far right of the Borderline gig pictures that are on Shadow Cabinet. Steve – she’s very upset to be missing you and MWP but she won’t let down the kids in her class. I hope you understand. If it was bumper/doodles/twillies you’d want their teacher to be there not throwing a 2-day sickie I hope!
    love you more,

    davem buy your wife a ticket and make her go, the kids have her every day, she could get special leave surely
    believe me there is no AGONY greater than missing a church show for some sensible, rational reason, especially when everyone says how good it was, think of yourself you will feel bad coming home raving about it, she will look at you with a noble, long suffering expression you won’t be able to bear it, just go buy her a ticket NOW

    davem | 25 January 2007 at 10:42 pm #

    Isolde,
    Thanks. I suggested the special leave idea but she’s advised (albeit with a certain nobility) that it’s only granted for weddings etc. Apologies to SK but for her not to see MWP will be a severe loss from which she may not recover. The ticket is hers if she will accept alien abduction as an excuse to give to the Head. You can e-mail her at: mardybum@stubborncow.org.uk
    In the meantime I’ll be the bald guy in the front row singing every word.
    I can’t believe you’re coming back so soon Steve. Thank you for making this sacrifice for us having read today how much your girls miss you. Perhaps one day they’ll appreciate how lucky they are to have a Dad who made such an impact on so many lives.
    They will be very proud.

    …then again she did get to see them pretty recently…ok, no worries then, whatever she’s comfortable with is groovy. The LAST thing she needs is us fiends nagging her.

    Scarlet flashes, Scarlet dances, clearly working on calf muscles as per Dad! Is that dance approach slightly Jim Kerr, speaking of Crissy? Go Scarlet, Woman of the Future, go Man of Golden Calves!

    Now all we have to do is figure out where’s the on-switch for Peter Koppes (only joking PK – you are an aural genius and hell, it worked for Bill Wyman).

    LOVE to all of you sods and hope your Invasion Day is going well Churchies in the land of Truganini

    Guess I’m lucky this year: I’m gonna drive to Krefeld with a couple of friends and the wife’s taking me to Amsterdam ( a birthday present). Only one problem: we still have to wait for almost three months.

    I’m visiting Canberra for a few weeks Steve – went to uni here in my childhood. Drove past Lynham High the other day – it was probably shiny and new when you went, but I bet they wish today that they didn’t build them to last back then!

    I’ve got a broken heart today. (Boy, typing that out helped). A 12 year old girl broke my heart. Hurts just like the real thing. Listening to HoB – hoping it and a few wines will help.
