my dear readers
i work hard everyday on this blog
i sit down for a couple of hours or more
and sometimes i turn out narcissistic rubbish
sometimes i turn out a fucking masterpiece
some days are an admixture of both
of course it IS all about me
its my diary
its my blog
its my(cliche of all cliches) life
me me me
thats why its mine
if thats too much
i invite you to leave
its pretty simple really
if you have something to say
which is vaguely relevant
make a comment
its called a dialogue
you say something connected to what ive said
just as in a normal conversation…
im tired of knocking out something on here
and seeing all the irrelevant bullshit that comes after
it dismays me
it disappoints me
it bores me
why dont you go go go
get your own blog
get your own chat room
predictable as a 2 bit vandal smashing up a phone booth
all the “wags” who went to town
with their “hilarious” comments yesterday
all the selfrighteous wankers threatening to leave…
then
go
with my blessings
its all about me on here
my kids
my misadventures
my beliefs
my values
my music
my inflated ego
uh huh
why are you still here?
why bother to hang around and make that one last joke
speak with your absence
and let the charts reflect my demise
my only other option is to turn the comments off
which is really no big deal
but lemme tell ya
you make a big mistake to assume im in this for the gushing yes men
and the worshipping unthinking sychophants
(thats what you want…and will never get)
it means you aint been paying any attention
i been fucking honest with ya
i let you in on my ups n downs
i didnt flinch from spilling the beans
on my many personality defects n problems
i just wanted a bit of relevant feedback…
agree, disagree or stay silent
now watch em go
see em leave
goodbye goodbye
oooh youre never gonna read me again…!
ok
goodbye then
im adolf hitler
im stalin
im a washed up olde nobody with a ego as big as whatever…
there you go
i said it for ya already
but im resilient
i been round this world more times than youve been round yer kitchen
i can stand on stage for 3 hours armed with only a guitar
and get 3 encores in london new york or wherever else ya like
(except christchurch)
for 27 years!
i met the best n the worst
i mingled with the millionaires n the miscreants
i made over 50 records
and i sold over 2 million
i got 5 daughters
im nearly fifty 3 years old
and ive had a long n eventful life
i was rocking before a lot of ya were even born
and whether you read or listen to me again
i’ll still be rocking if you sod off
i wont even know yer gone
so go!
yes
you can find yer own way out
i expect bonos waiting for ya out there somewhere
when he gets back from the riviera
or whatever…
(and hes a very humble fascinating guy)
you think i write this for the money?
you think i write it so someone can gush or agree with me?
nope
i just do it for the sake of it
cos thats what i do
i officially forbid anymore gushing, ok?
no more of that either
just some relevant comments
or let it go
is it really asking for so much?
i will allow a cooling off period
ie
of course now
the comments following this will be full of
the usual predictable ennervating tripe
go on
get it out of your system
then use the door
i cant be bothered reading it anymore
get yer own blog
go on
see how many comments you get
write about your life
go ahead
its free baybee
anyone can do it
even you
but this little page is mine
why should i let you hi jack my page
i guarantee i wont be hijacking yours
i promise that in fact
all you rebels can get yer own thing together
where you can write fair unegotistical blogges
even-handed deeply philosophical treatises
written with care n love
democratic wonderful slices of yer life n yer loves
its all waiting there beyond this point
i surrender
youve won
to stay around hereon in would be churlish of you
leave my selfcentred offputting world behind you
freedom beckons
why hang around a second longer?
lets part company with nary a wave goodbye
ah…
thats better….
oh no youre still here…
yawn

    Wow, how poignant and circumstantial this is. Thought I’d catch up a bit, and look what I run into?! Ha! Hello, Steve, Ben V. here. Hello to the good fiendss too. I haven’t been flappin’ my yap lately on your comments section, mainly because I couldn’t stand to read most of them anymore, and I just kind of ducked out for some fresh air. Not sure what happened, but you picked up a few idiot stowaways on this magic carpet ride…they know who they are. Honestly, it kind of had me in the dumps for a while, on top of some other shite going on in yon faithful’s life. I guess you could say the whole bloody world was getting me down and I haven’t felt too socialble. As far as the comments section…I guess it is what it is, somethings, even the most sacred will have parasites. My soul-searching has taught me to just tune it out…all the bullshit, all the idiots. The world is unfortunately full of ignorants. Anyway, what can I say…despite the timing of this blog entry ;), it is always a pleasure reading your thoughts, heart and soul. It is your blog, and that is why I showed up here in the first place…and that is why I’ll stay. Plus, I have had the pleasure of making some really great friends through this site…they know who they are as well. Well, that’s it. Hope you are otherwise well. Glad to hear the recordings are coming along so well. I can’t wait to sink into them. Say hey to the Choich. All the best, Kilbo, and fellow fiendss. Much Peace and Love. Until next time…

    i missed it too but just read through it all. Pathetic comments, very insulting to the man.

    great blog I thought.
    i love reading poetic pieces hinting at some kind of Soul Highway. So much invisible to us all. Not just all trickster stories people. There is so so much more to existence than what the eye can see. Let us explore it all and not discount anyone for what he imagines could be a reality. Yeah…come inside the Soul Highway Nightclub, 777 Heaven Lane, St Petersburg, Florida!

    we’ve been through this so many times…the ones who are here to stir up shit also take it out on the good people here by calling them yes men and so forth…yawn…
    maybe, just maybe some or even a lot of the people here do generally agree with his point of view, like hearing about his kids or his music, love his stories, and even enjoy the occassional rant. so with that in mind…kind comments are likely to be made. i’ve seen many of people here offer different opinions and experiences without having to be nasty or start a pissing contest.
    hopefully steve, we can all still be nice or friendly to ya and it be alright?
    i said it before…i get enjoyment out of this…i don’t come here to fight…discuss, laugh, feel…sure
    take care everyone…oh shit…that was nice wasn’t it? damn i’m an ass kisser

    I’m gonna operate on the premise that I’m still welcome here unless I hear otherwise. If anyone can point out any particular reason I shouldn’t be…go for your life.

    I have always represented myself honestly and honourably here as I try to do in the rest of my dealings. I have always treated SK as an least an equal. We have different professions but similar interests and I find this blog a distraction from my own daily toils. I don’t like all of what he writes, I don’t have something to say about every blog. In those instances, I keep my trap shut or I appraoch the subject in the same humour that the old fella has undertaken communication with me.

    I guess it just does come back to wanting to maintain the spirit of this….I came for Grant but I stayed for the old fella.

    Once again I say, wipe out the comments, I can live without ’em and if there is no way of registering the commenters etc then close the bloody thing down. SK, you are an old Virgo who will let 1000 kind remarks wash over you and only remember the 1 cruel one. Don’t do it to yourself. If I ever need to really tell you somthing I’ll get hold of you somehow, it’s a small world etc.

    Just close it down….

    funny to see today’s entry
    yesterday morning I was listening to the disillusionist and thinking that it is one of my all-time favorite songs
    a dreamy, beautiful melody paired with such creepy imagery

    do I remember reading that “something wicked this way comes” was an inspiration for that one?
    or did I make that up?

    anyway, point being that it can be hard to strike a balance between elements…we’re all critics and fans of the work…
    who here wouldn’t rather listen to a church album that frustrated us than a strokes album that didn’t?

    I don’t often read the comments
    but sometimes when I do, I’m happy to know that some of these folks are out there..people that live completely separate lives from me, but share this love
    however, I breezed through lately and felt alienated…
    if you don’t like today’s blog, read one from a couple of months ago…
    or here’s another suggestion for some of you:esskay has supplied the building blocks you can use to create an endless number of new time being posts– go ahead, cut and paste
    internalize and re-mix
    (after all, how do you think he does it on off days?)
    then you can make comments on your own randomly generated “sk” blog and leave all of us out of it
    unless you made blurred crusade, I don’t carrere what you think
    thanks

    well i for one ( for all i am not worth ) enjoy your honesty, your thoughts and feelings about ya kids and family, your ups and downs ( ha..i always thought you tried to disassociate yourself from that brissy band ). Your possibly mullunga induced mood swings and daydream re0collections are pretty out there but amazingly well re-created on these pages.
    I have, and i’m sure fans of your music have similiar moments, As thats why we are fans of your music after all ( its not as if your highly currently “hip” man like ummm… oh who cares)

    I’ve never understood the pathetic people who use your blog to pull in some sort of audience for their own personal use in your comments section. Like any SK fans give a crap about any of them.

    Personally, I just ignore all of the crap comments but I can see how it can be frustrating for you when it gets out of hand as it occasionally does.

    Oh well, to hell with the losers. Long live The Time Being!

    yr right SK, some people are so fuckin pathetic, I just can’t understand why anyone would waste their precious time reading this if they don’t like it..then commenting..mad. It is petty envy and jealousy.. things which you openly admit to, we all are those things, get fucken over it and just enjoy this blooge for what it is. For my part I enjoy the unfliterd insight of a bloke living in bondi, with kids , from the left hand side of life and consciousness, that grew up in Canberra like myself, I can truly relate to a lot of the stuff in hear, I have my own demons etc etc …that you play music that I’m familiar with is a bonus. Your bloog reminds my of what my mind and life is like and it reasurring that I’m NOT ALONE, there are other freaks flying their freak flags high. So I’m with SK, FUCK off if you don’t like it hear.

Ok – so why can’t i like them and churrhc? Is it only one choice I am allowed? if so, I choose U2 and church. One day they may play together, or write. It will be the best day of my life. Do NOT FORGET U2 have done a lot of good for world. What has churhc done? Don’t tell me who to like – I like what I want to. Leave me alone. I did not come hear to be stuck by you into slamming U2.

    Last night I listened to “Forget Yourself” and “Beside Yourself” in succession. They are disparate Church otherworldly masterpieces that were recorded concurrently. Is it viable that “Beside Yourself” is the better. “Forget Yourself” took five plays to blow me away. “Beside Yourself” hit me on the second play. They are both dynamic in mystifying ways.
    On another note I will not be attending the Silverchair concert in Chicago this weekend. They simply don’t resonate with me like they used to.

    damien | 3 August 2007 at 2:10 am #

    I usually only skim read the comments. The pretentious wankerism among some of my fellow Church fans is what put me off contributing to the Hotel Womb discussion board a few years back. This comments page seems to be turning into something similar, people having their own uninteresting conversations and not saying much to Steve, about Steve or about the recording of Heyday.

    I wouldn’t blame you if you did close it down, SK, but it would be a shame to lose this opportunity to communicate with you directly now and then.

    what a coincidence!! just two days ago i was telling queen h via e-mail that i think maybe you should disable the comment box. and i think i may have told eek the same thing once. it’s long since passed ridiculous. it’s now obscene and disgusting~~from the irrelevance to the trolls that lie in wait in the shadows, ready to attack anybody. i hardly read 99% of the comments anymore myself…..i just skim through and read just from those that i know are engaging in the dialog with you. (cst coach, brien c, sue c, eek, andyL, etc…you know who you are.)

    but the CRAP……ohhhh….an excellent example is the “bondi strangler” at 11:21 just a few lines above me….come on, “strangler”, is that really necessary?

    it’s sick.

    steve, i’m an ardent admirer of yours and have been for many years. i am forever grateful that you are opening yourself up in this forum and just being yourself. you’re very human with a very human life (of course i knew that already), and i love reading about you. and your family. and your experiences, etc. i don’t know of any celeb that has offered to be so open and honest with his fans as you have. ever. i don’t think the idiots on here realize what a precious gift you have given us. sadly, instead of this comment box being a place for all of us to engage in discussion with you and each other, it’s degenerated into a cesspool of perversion and malice.

    maybe you SHOULD disable the comments.

    love always…

    believe it or not, reading this blogge has not only given me a glimpse into your life and thoughts but has also helped me see some of my own things more clearly…..and yes i know, those things are just happenstance…. this blogge is yours and yours alone……but reading this blogge has helped me to grow as a person ( god that sounds fucking sappy doesn’t it )

    so i dunno………i guess i’m just trying to say thanks in my longwinded way

    I love commenting but I will still subscribe if you negate us. Veleska is right on ! But I will have life-threatening withdrawals and eat so much vegetarian food and drink so much booze I will be as fat as a whale. Your blog is literally an addictive drug. Note: I did meet Jeff Beck once in 1999. He autogaphed a really large poster, listened to all my praise and accolades and then he politely said “God Bless” and briskly walked away. If I can’t comment to SK or Jeff Beck I have no beloved rock stars left! SK is Greatest vocalist ever and JB is greatest gutarist ever. Sorry Lennon, McCartney, Bono, Clapton, Page and Hendrix. That’s why JB is somewhat pertinent plus he’s an animal loving veg like SK. Chrissie Hynde can be mean. I luv her but don’t want to meet her at this time. SK knows her and wrote a really exceptional blog about the experience.

    Irrelevance is relvance to the masses, Communial Starfuckers Inc. I call em. SK-Do you Like Roman Polanski, Stanley Kubrick, David Cronenberg, Should the Scouring of the Shire have been put to film? Sorry for the irrelevence of this to your recent post, but it is relevent to one of your earlier ones, i am just a bit behind. But yes steven I doth agree with ya and agree to disagree with ya in some sanctions, but I am sure that is what ya want. Anyway I think your pop tunesmanship is akin to bowie’s Low Album-Sheer brilliance and your manner when we spoke in newcastle after the church’s 2005 acoustic show was sublime-we have been through one similar thing and I thanked you for your music which inspired me and helped me through the Awful ache i endured as i resolved my thing, and yes Nuke-ass-tle is a craphole, but I am one of the few that admire you round here. thanks again for everything and anything.

    I think it’s time to say good bye to the comment section Steve. You can’t keep telling some people who simply just don’t get it.

    To those who ‘don’t get it’ all Steve wants in return for HIS daily diary is: –
    RELEVANT, INTELLEGENT, OPININATED, WITTY, DIALOGUE.

    Leave the U2 and REM references out of it.
    No more lovexxxxx or xxxxxlove – He knows you love him but do we have to read it everyday.

    And to the ‘worshipping unthinking sycophants’ ENOUGH ALREADY. I’m sick of reading your slopper just as much as Steve obviously is.

    Whatever happened to the good ole’ days when I looked forward to comments from Public Servant, Captain Mission and Dutch Pierre (Hi Dutch just saw you made an appearance).

    That’s all – I very rarely comment – and I won’t again. However, I will continue to read your blog Steve as long as you love to write it.

    There seems to be a number of termites attempting to undermine this dialogue.

    Hi SK.
    I log on to read what you have to say.
    Disable the comments if they bother you. I don’t think it will damage the ratings even if that mattered.
    TTB is a unique insight into your life. Long may it continue.
    Love you more SK. I’m off my hols for a week – it’ll be interesting to see what develops when I get back. All the best to all fiends.

    Dean,

    Please explain what you mean-undermine this dialogue-what SKs’,yours, ours? In effect who or what are you refering to Mr Dean. Termites Naw away at something until it is useless, how can they undermine It then? They may try but they can only eventually deplete it rendering it obsolete. And this seems implausable to me because dialogue can never be entirely consumed in a physical sense, Metaphorically or mentally maybe but never in reality. Any way sorry to bother you with all that.

    Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou SK. Up ’til now you’ve had the patience of Job with the relatively small number of commenters who forget (or don’t know how) to check their egos at the door.
    But now you’re going to get “Hope this is relevant enough for ya!…”
    There’s lots of nice folks in the comments, and lots of nice silent readers too.

    Yes, drop the comment box. Instead you can insert a poll in the end of a blog.

    Was this blogge good?
    A. Yes
    B. No

    Bingo! A box for yes- and no-people.

    I still think that people leaving bad/ stupid comments is better than people leaving no comments at all.

    I believe there is a way you can block particular commenters, or at least choose which comments to publish – or not. Good luck!

    The title to the latest post says it all. Predictable ain’t the half of it. Was there really any hope that the self-aggrandizing clowns who pepper your pithy prose with lame arguments about other bands would actually get the (very clear) message and just fuck off? At the other end of the love-Kilbey-hate-Kilbey continuum the psycophants/sickophants/psychofants all got their chance to spread the love once again. See, you open up the worm can, and all measure of vileness comes sliding out. Me, I enjoy the spiritual debates (with self) almost as much as the rest of it.
    Continue to rant, as well you might. Like you said, fellah, it’s your gig. Those that don’t like it- why do they stay? When did this become a venue for band vs band meaningless by people who have no idea?
    Christ.

    Oh, and cute post by MWP, too.

    He’s right you know. If, say, Shakespeare or Orthello were around today, it’s a certianty they would have a Blog. And if they had just written a life changing masterpiece of a blog also, do you think they would like their fieends commenting with the likes of.. “Oooh Veleska, how’s your bad back?” Or “Show us your tits GenX”

    No, they wouldnt. So keep it relevant, or get your own Blog.

    hi each and everyone!
    this blog has made a real difference to me in so many ways..
    it gave me the inspiration to make music again after many years of just plucking the guitar on occasion..
    it gave me insights on how to create a song,and made me eager to explore the art of songwriting seriously..of all the heroes of the past,SK and the Church are the only ones that take their art one step further instead of going along repeating theirselves like so many other artists do(including U2 even though i find bono and the bunch really good from time to time)….
    some of you call SK narcissistic with an ego larger than life,only interested in himself…
    nothing can be more wrong than that..
    Hes a gentleman with a genuine interest in other people..he is kind,generous and got a great sense of humour..
    and i guess that some people on this commentpage dont have a clue and lost their sense of humour or never had one in the first place..
    here in SW eden theres a debate going down about blogbullying and how certain anonymous people seem to let of steam threatening bloggers just for the fun of it..
    some of the authors even stopped writing blogs because of these harassments..

    and to all you hostile people out there…

    “to speak without thinking is like wiping your ass before you take a dump”

    HAHAHAHA…..;)

    It would really be a shame Steve to close off the comments section but I wouldnt blame you at all seeing some of the shite that gets posted. Its not a bad suggestion to delete the unnecessary abuse, and some of the volleys that become like spam… editors do it all the time. They contribute nothing positive.

    I second that, Sue.

    Confession time Steve and all:
    I was ironic about the importance of me me me on Steve’s blog here. Making a fool of myself as an Opera like singer on Steve’s stage was ironically pure humor. I loved ‘someone’s’ follow up in the comment section as the crypton band – looks like it took so much time and thought. I laughed out loud and I’m still smiling daily about it.

    Dear Steve, parting is such sorrow. Where will we go, do, say, think? I thought we were going into a neu cathedral. We have so much work to do yet…and and

    Well, I have a new website…thanks so much for the validation!

    I’d better run along make things beautiful.

    Thanks again for your honesty.

    i still say that U2 made some pretty interesting records even if Kilbey is mad ….

    Bono has contributed materially and measureably to his political causes. SK and sheeple herd have given the world lots of hot wind… and opinions are just like a$$h0l3s spouting them they say, large holes where nothing grows.

    Poster at 11:22 AM said…
    I am insulted that U2 refused to pay their taxes in Ireland. at least kilbey pays his taxes….

    Then go live in a fascist state. Free socities do not forceably take things from individuals especially not labour. Go think this over while 4 million cameras track every movement on the streets of London while the constable can take your DNA for “littering.” Or how about being locked up for not voting. Grab your ankles and shake out those coins for your masters.
