yesterday as i was getting ready to leave
a mynah bird flew in the kitchen
it took me 20 minutes to get rid of it
stupid thing was all frightened
got caught between window n fly screen
eventually i had to give it a smack round the head
with the broom to make it see sense
almost falling off the balcony to do so
man that lil birdie wont be back in here for a while
(ooh what a cruel olde killer???!!!)

nk n woofle n i parked on the tip of north bondi
and watch the angry sea and the driving rain
occaisionally woofle says something brilliant like
its wet!
the woofle has the wildest beethoven hair
she is definitely the weirdest n most difficult of all my kids
she is also a genius at something we aint figured out yet
her proportions are exquisite
the sweep of her little jaw
her well spaced sky blue eyes
her broad honest face
her scarlet lips n white white teeth
her husky little voice
what a character…….ooh she gets me mad sometimes
bossing the whole house around
ameliorated by a single kiss n i love you dad…

working on church with tim n jorden b
mixing starts next week
today still fixing things up
yesterday tim puts up yet another new unsung song
i wrote this:
i watched the sunken sun shrink
and all the rivers just ran outta steam
eternity loomed n my garret room
i think i saw ya in some kinda dream…
but then i ran out of oomph
to finish it all off with…
on long way home
jorden listened to shriek for the 1st time
marty has said its brilliant n “rad”
jorden loved all my accents
(i let a few of my demons out for this)
and this is no joke

    Maybe all that ‘vulgarity’ has something to do with my crazy dream of you recording a song with Angelina Jolie and India!

    It was way more twisted than that, let me tell ya!

    But I won’t.

    Scarlet sounds like she and my Evie Rose may share some of the same raucous fire… What year was she born? Maybe it’s a chinese astrology thing… metal rabbits, fire cocks…

    My goodness a supa blog. Hope Rob Thomas does an excellent version and it becomes a no 1 in US and you makes heaps of dosh Steve. Exciting stuff. Hope he doesnt over sing it.
    Mynah birds unfortunately Brian are fast becoming a pest in plague proportions particularly on the east coast of Australia. They invade nests to make them their own, can kill the babies of native birds and leave the nests infested with lice. A shame but something needs to be done about them. Warning Steve, my aunty has a labradoodle, they love to chew things! Linda x

    hi steve,
    lots to look 4ward to. that mb20 version of utmw is on youtube. its a shortened version, but quite well done overall. i expected worse. mr thomas was nice enough to mention the church few times after playing it…he seemed interested in knowing where the church are from…final answer was sydney (he thought perth). i think the smashing pumpkins/reptile thing was bit better, as they played the whole song.
    good luck with scarlett. i have the same with maya. and we have another girl arriving any day now…she will be arielle, or adelle, or anna…we still have few more days to figure out.
    take care…

    The poodlisation of the known universe continues. Resist you may try, but the P-word doesn’t shed, it’s smarter than a Dux of chimps, it’s althletic, appealingly zany and just a fun friend to be around. We have Layla the poo-pom-shitz and Phantom the toy poodle.

    Yes sorry mynah bird – but if it was an Indian Mynah, rather than a Native mynah, they’re creating havoc in Australia and I fantasize about mynah traps and gas constantly.

    Thanks for remarkable evocation of rain-lashed Bondi streets – love it to death.

    Not to appear ungrateful, but I don’t like instrumental music – except Film. Not sure why that one broke the habits of a lifetime, but all these years later I still love it. Maybe it was the Killer’s electric guitar that made the difference?!

    that’s great there’s another acoustic project on the way – i’ve always enjoyed your acoustic stuff. but you still haven’t filled us in on the cryptic reference to “Esoteric Music Club” at KH. What’s that one all about???

    I’m in an awkward position cos I always try to support the artist by buying the work and never download anything that’s available officially; so I’ll buy all of this new stuff. The awkwardness comes in when deciding who to buy it FROM. I’d like to get it all from Karmic Hit, but I’m in northern Europe so shipping is a bastard! But I know you’ve got no choice. So do I save money by going through Amazon? Or will that cut your own profits? I’d sooner you had my money than some ‘middleman’ ! What do the rest of the guys on here do?

    Place potent contraceptives in feed that allures mynah birds. Humanely reduce mynah populations via inducing infertility.

    2008 is going to be a huge year for UTMW. I sense the ARIAS.

    MACCA had triumphant commemoration concert in Liverpool this week. He sang “A Day In The Life” and “Give Peace A Chance.” Yoko and George’s wife were in audience and they liked it. My sources “London Times”, “Telegraph”, “Independent” and “Guardian” websites. Heather Mills has inadverantly united the last vestiges of the Beatles.

    for all you anons out there:
    The Mercator projection is a cylindrical map projection presented by the Flemish geographer and cartographer Gerardus Mercator, in 1569. It became the standard map projection for nautical purposes because of its ability to represent lines of constant true bearing or true course, known as rhumb lines, as straight line segments. While the direction and shapes are accurate on a Mercator projection, it distorts size, in an increasing degree away from the equator.

    oh…. lest i forget,
    it’s also steve marty ‘n tim’s little space-rock side project also featuring the redoubtable mr.billy bowden’s radiotronics(and lord knows what else!).
    hope that’s cleared things up folks.

    I do agree Steve — the pieces in this exhibition are the best group of paintings you’ve ever done. It’s a very strong group of work, and I’m both delighted with and proud of you.

    And the exhibition does look pretty damned good if I must say so myself, so it’s worth the visit for anyone reasonably close. Receptions on June 7th and 20th 6-9 pm each day. Regular hours are 11am to 6 pm Monday through Saturday and 12 to 5 pm on Sunday. Email me (hejstudio at gmail dot come) for more info.

    And an SK painting (or print) really would look great on your walls. You know you want one.

    anon at 12:24 am — what I do is buy anything Church-related (solo & side projects etc.) as directly as possible (Church Merch, Karmic Hit, at shows if a show is very close to a release, etc.) even though sometimes buying that way isn’t the lowest price. For me it’s worth paying more for their albums knowing the maximum amount of money is going to them.

    However, with nearly every other artist I will scrounge for the lowest possible (legal) price. ๐Ÿ˜‰
