and all round handsome brute
torn apart by his own commenters
driven crazy by the taste of his sweet pure blood
no no
some cried
save him save him
and they seized the right half of him and pulled
others cried wicked
heretic
fool
blasphemer
dreamer
and they seized the left and tugged
and still others
inquisitors and torturers
asked tricksy questions
tricksy my preciousses
or they put their words in his mouth
and then beat him for it
spat upon and insulted
for having said
please be kind to all the beasts…
and they pulled and tore him asunder
he who had loved them so much
he who had shared unflinchingly
he who had over n over stated his misgivings about himself
he who was frank and forthright
he with the iq of a genius and the calves of a dancer
he with the gold records and mercurial teeth
he with the encyclopaedic knowledge of rocknroll
he with 2 sets of twins
he who has no country
he who is 1st son of 1st son
he who had been there and done that
but was thoughtful observant and eloquent enough
to come back and tell you about it in poetic terms no less
go ahead
wags nibble on his carcass now
detractors desecrate his memory with obscene slogans
his followers have declared him a public holiday
and many of them now dress in scruffy clothes to honour him
and smoke the sacred erb
tucking into nut cutlets
wearing wispy hair wigs
and false white beards
they call him the saint who was no saint
the prophet without profit
white hippy moses
the mangey panther
the fool
the time being
the charlatan
the killer of children and women
the olde fella
the ladies man
the uneven one
slim boy grunt
steve fairchild
steve underwood
steve bennett
steve a’door
the one who was pretty
hippy dribble
the voice of the voiceless
the merciful one
deaf as a post
mr resilience
the clown
man of sorrows
freckleface
mr kilbey
the one who could go either way
ahhh
so many names
so many games
so misunderstood
so sad
such a shame
some said stop
some said go
some said hi
some said lo
and behold me tight!
some said oh i love you time being
please take your time
strip these hours from me
remove these minutes as if they were my garment
paint me a picture of living life
some said i am leaving
i am leaving
but the fighter still remained
watching me watching me
waiting to hurt
hurt
hurt
hasnt this earth gotta nuff hurt already
enuff sadness n sorrow
no no no
in coming slings and arrows
outrageous fucking fortune
ducking and weaving
dodging them brickbats
oh theyre cutting me to the quick n the dead
so many words
so many bad vibes
poor be-wildered olde killer
he stands up confused
who turned out the lights? he asks
in the darkness of his tribulation
some of his apostles say
close it down sweet man
we cannot bear to see thee slandered and abused thus
others say
we have come with thee thus far
but now alas our parts must path
others say wherever you lead dear master
there we will follow
for your sake
but for my sake
is for your sake
and the ones who cant see wont believe
and then the pharisees said
how dare you tell us not to eat the beasts
we have always eaten them
we are given dominion over them (it says)
and we’ll do whatever the fuck we like
besides what about in tibet?
or mongolia?
and the holocaust?
and abortion?
and the disabled?
and the old?
the homeless?
and sickness?
and poverty?
and dole cheats?
and the broken pavement on hall street
and the lions?
and the a-theists?
and heroin?
and going to jail?
and whatta bout the past?
and whatta bout me?
and whatta bout you?
what about what you did?
yes you you you!
dont worry about keith richards n loo read
what about you?
who me?
yeah you!
oh i lied n cheated n ignored n fucked up
oh i been so wrong about so many things
so many many so many many
sins i grant you
i sinned i sind i rescind
sinned to cinder
sainthoodlum
but one thing im sure of…
no no no say pharisees
you arent sure of anything
no right to be sure
but i feel this
no no no
you dont feel you fool
dont feel
your foolish feelings
but are we humans?
is this humanity?
is this love in action?
is this the way whoever would have wanted it?
can you dig life?
life….not ours to take away…not like that
not to breed beasts in fear factory
hunt them yes if youre a hunter
how many hunters here? asked the being
but hardly any raised their hands…
but the fish…
but mongolia…
but the iron…
but the advertisements with sam neill…
look!
the being swung around angrily and he declared
DO WHATEVER YOU CAN!

    Eat the meat, don’t eat the meat.

    Take the drugs, don’t take the drugs.

    Drink booze, don’t drink the booze.

    Smoke the cigs, don’t smoke the cigs.

    And so on……..

    Each of us has to make our own decisions about how we live our lives. If Steve wants to share his views on an issue that he is clearly passionate about then that’s his prerogative.

    I think I’ve said this before, but anyone who gets personally offended by some white words on a black screen really need to get over themself.

    So our hero is a miltant vegan! Good for him. If you’re not, don’t take it as a threat to your own identity, just think about why SK feels as strongly as he does on this issue and at least respect him for his compassion and commitment.

    let’s give it a shot:
    i day “don’t eat meat, cheese, the lot”

    set in mission bay, two guys in sumo wrestlers outfits rock on up to the
    fountain and sit on the fountain rim with fish and chips wrapped up.

    They open up the bag and the first pulls out a hot dog on a stick (normal
    one with tomato sauce)
    he adds extra sauce with his Kiwi iconic sauce btl.
    the next sumo wrestler pulls out of the fish and chip wrap a cat on a stick
    (and adds heaps of sauce).
    Then As the first sumo is chewing down his hotdog he rips of a huge fart.
    “poooweee” he says in a Japanese accent.
    The 2nd sumo replies “arrrh you KRAZYAZ” (full Jap accent)
    then 2nd sumo rips of a huge fart with a squeaky finish.
    The 1st sumo says “arrrrhh no you Krazyaz” (in Jap accent)
    this turns in to banter between who’s the crazy az one.
    which has more farting to the point where they end up in the fountain
    wrestling,
    one of the sumo ends up losing and is upside down in the fountain water,
    but he manages to rip of a little fart that bubbles up.
    Eat meat and cats for teeee.

    This has been an arrested development.

    After three days the awful storm abated, and way, way below the surface of the placid swell, down where the giant kelp beds swayed gracefully in unison, a multitude of brightly coloured fishes darted hither and thither, gently, respectfully even, gnawing and nibbling at Kilbey’s waterlogged but still handsome corpse.

    Further down, on the dimly-dappled sea bed, two old friends, a slightly wrinkled wobbegong and a bebarnacled crab, discussed the morning’s discovery.

    “Soooooo, djar know-arr whoo-ar this-arrr poor-arr blighter is then, arrrr ?” inquired Crab in his unusual dialect.

    “Well, ah sure as hell do, Crabby,” said Wobbegong “…why, that there be Mr Keelbee of North Bondah…ah’d recognize them pair o’ calves anywhere.”

    “Spot on, arrr, Wob,” drawled Crab, “and so-arr what wouldja be thinking then-arr, about our poor Mr Kilbee-arr ?”

    “Weeeell, Crabby…now ah guess ah be a-thinkin’ that…” and Wobbegong paused momentarily to look up at the feeble fingers of sunlight so very far away “ah be thinkin’ that…well…it’s…it’s what he wouldda wanted !”

    “Aye, aye – you’re not wrong there-rrr. It’s-arrr what ‘e wouldda wanted-rr” Crabby announced in his distinctive last-word tone.

    And from depths above them, the inky shadow of a passing manta-ray cloaked the scene temporarily in darkness, obscuring all the little fishes and bringing a deep marine peace to all things.

    But higher above still…back on solid ground, back in the world of air and men, the frenetic pace of waste and haste continued. The selling, the buying, the shouting, the fighting, the working, the earning, the spending…all, all of it unchanged. And most of all, ever and ever, greater and greater, could be heard the sound of typing – of people typing, typing on computer keyboards in bedrooms and cafes and internet bars – dreaming, fretting, scheming, blogging, flaming…just trying to connect…to be noticed…to feel real…to feel that they belonged to something, something bigger than themselves and bigger than their own fears and joys…trying so hard to connect through wires and screens and strange chatrooms and uploaded files and all the other apparatuses of a “connected” society.

    On the beach, the ocean gently licked the shore – knowing, almost watching, uncaring, calm for now… waiting.

    wow~~i get a hundred miles away from my computer on the weekend, come back on monday, and look at what i’ve missed. i just skimmed through the comments from the past few days, and since i saw the mess was getting out of hand just as in times previous, i decided not to get involved. it doesn’t seem to matter if anyone is for or against the subject being discussed, because they will get torn apart by the opposing party. i’m not here to argue with anyone or try to assert my opinions.

    as andyL said: “i feel like i just spent 24 hours in a foxhole with shells whizzing over my head!”
    yeah, i have felt like that, too, in times past~~that i should turn over my desk and use it as a blast shield.

    “is this love in action?”
    good question, steve.

    i will comment on the “alice in wonderland” bit~~that was cute. and that would make a good painting, as someone suggested.

    Mr Garratt,

    You just reminded me of one of Mr Waters’ songs:
    —————
    He said “Mama Mama
    The President’s a fool,
    Why do I have to keep reading
    These technical manuals ?”
    And the joint chiefs-of-staff
    And the brokers on Wall Street said
    “Don’t make us laugh
    You’re smart kid
    Time is linear
    Memory’s a stranger
    History’s for fools
    Man is a tool in the hands
    Of the great God Almighty.”
    And they gave him command
    Of a nuclear submarine
    And sent him back in search of
    The Garden of Eden.

    “and many of them now dress in scruffy clothes to honour him
    and smoke the sacred erb
    tucking into nut cutlets
    wearing wispy hair wigs
    and false white beards
    they call him the saint who was no saint”
    That was hilarious, because true. Reminded me of the life of brian. “Beard, madam?”

    “not to breed beasts in fear factory”
    Completely agree. Survive as best you can (as they’re doing in mongolia and all these other places), but surely factory farming and fast food has nothing to do with survival.
    The book Fast Food Nation is certainly food for thought.

    Today’s blog reads as though this were a time of re-evaluation. Of turmoils weathered. Perhaps an apt time for 40 days and nights in the desert?…

    As Steve knows humans are plunging into cannibalism. It is not only cows, pigs, lambs, chickens and turkeys that are being monstrously abusesd, maimed and tortured to death. People are eating whale meat in Japan. Cats and dogs are consumed in Korea. In the Congo, bonobos, gorillas and orangutans are being massacred by bush-meat profiteers who sell their flesh for people to eat. The latter primates are our closest living animal relatives. The Judeo-Christian Biblical ideal diet is vegetarian (Genesis 1:29). It may be silly but I will cling to my Garden of Eden creed on behalf of animals’ rights and humanity’s fall from grace.

    The blogmaster is addicted to reaction. Most of his crowd here are also addicted to reaction.
    It seems the people that talk most about how “different” they are, how creative & misunderstood they are, how “my lifestyle is better than yours-blah, blah” are just as elitist as the presidents and lawyers or meat-eaters that you seem to despise. Like energy alway’s attracts like energy. You are the opposite side of the same coin.
    Ego-based…Creating on these very pages the emotions of loathing, hatred, elitism and separatism….which are all things that ultimate foreshadow the very wars your talking about Steve.

    Mr Kilbey: Exceedingly Good Pies International space rocker, artist, poet and vegan activist, Steve Kilbey of the Church fame (Under the Milky Way), has vowed to cook anyone of his minions of fans who dares to eat meat.

    Kilbey, currently experiencing a huge surge in popularity with his Blog has been concerned at the omnivorous nature of those who claim to worship him. Steve has decided to take positive action and has been experimenting with various recipes for utilising the blood thirsty followers.

    The Fan Flan
    Anonymous Ratatouille
    Aficionado Pâté
    Sycophant Lasagne
    Devotee Sauté
    Although Mr Kilbey has mild concerns about loosing some of his fan base, the wider rewards for the rest of mankind could be huge. “It may even solve the problems of famine and starvation in Africa”, he never said.

    Hello there!
    Umm.. its about… consciousness..
    It is an emotional place to be.. this contemplation for most..
    its very much a real religion when it comes down to how you choose to respect life..
    many of us had no choice
    I had the grandfather that would skin a calf right out back with my grandmother eventually pulling the head right out of the oven.. people are taught that they need to do this to survive..
    Men also feel like they just got done hunting all day when they bring home the steaks..
    It really is hard for people to consider change and its fair to respect space..
    But on the other hand it is definitely frustrating for us that have abandoned that way of life and strive for holistic living and the lessening of destructive and suffering in the world.. Who has the right? Well we all have a say and it comes down to participation..
    I believe its out of love that people like sk say what they say,
    its also necessary for people to consider their lifestyles..
    people that have gone through the transformation are, like I am, very proud and healthier for making the conscious choice.. but there is a feeling of disillusionment in the sense that no matter what you do and tell people they will get defensive to the point that they wont even process it for themselves and the whole situation gets dealt with aggression, most of the time vegetarians have to resort to shocking people into the realities of the meat world..
    I feel it creates an unfriendly exchange but Man it really is so much better to have control over your health, to be creative in the kitchen and make interesting foods without the typical approach, I feel most fortunate to have peers that are inventive and creative in the culinary arts..
    This is the next phase in evolution for us yall its true, I believe in it.. its not that hard..
    yu feel better.. its magical.. it takes a little help and adjustment.. Im gonna write a book someday soon…

    I know this topic has left many bruised but I always have a real admiration to Sk for fighting the real fight for humanity..
    Like he needs to say shit to anyone about this..

    I know sk talks tough when he tells you all to blow off

    but for my part I would invite anyone that would like to ease their way into a meatless universe to, at their own discretion Contact with me.. (jaiontime@yahoo.com) I can immediately offer some cool down home recipes.. that you wont feel a thing.. it only takes a new approach and a little investment but it becomes a momentum that is very noticeable, and it can be done with small steps..
    I believe in it, we are all the same.. lets do it better..

    ALL suffering comes from the ego- based thought of the human mind. I’m sure Steve’s read some Zen stuff, right?
    Yoga & vegetarianism means nothing unless it’s WORKING. In other words, there is NO need to judge another when you are centered yourself. Do Steve’s comment’s seem like they come from a centered person?

    centred people are evolved enough or wiseenough to read doctrines and hopefully,not too many “self help”books…..and put them into realistic action….as opposed to the “psuedo cool..new age .”.university talk” that is as unfruitful as blowing “raspberries”at an atom bomb genx

    andyL,great last comment!
    Steve K you are loved and admired and the meat-eaters (god, I hate that us and them thing) respect you for your determination to follow your own path, dont you forget that. I just want to say to everyone else to believe in yourself and not take offense. If you believe in yourself then it doesnt matter at all what anyone says.

    I know that I try to do whatever I can more than at any other time in the past…maybe my best isn’t good enough, but I know that I can’t be the same as I used to be for the sake of myself and others.

    To each their own.

    When you can get through the day living behind that statement, you’ll do alright.

    Anyone playing this for/against false bullshit semantic game about veg or meat, whatever. One does not change their mind based on what is placed on a blog thread…

    Hey J Street.9.59

    If you trawl back through the archives you’ll find some people actually HAVE changed there minds. Whether you want to attribute this to TTB or the sound rational of vegetarianism is up to you.
    I’ve pondered some tricksy questions during this debate but i find it near impossible to rationise any defence of the meat industry (or those who support it,ie meat eaters) . Na the homeless don’t count, they don’t really have much choice. The meat industry don’t exist on there patronage anyway. Don’t say ya need the protien,iron, energy or wahever because it’s poperganda bullshit. I’ve done the most hardcore truck packing physical work for years on a vegetarian diet. Whats more i’ve had more energy to do it than burger boys half my age. It’s a moral question dude. Go visit a slaughterhouse before ya say each to there own.

    I’m over this can we move on. ?

    Daniel12,

    I believe I was saying, yeah, let’s move on.

    Killer has it right–I don’t have any argument here. I am one of the first to say that you come here for the musings and they help influence choices because the Killer has done some living.

    Moving on…
