    Cythera…that reminds me of Jean-Antoine Watteau’s fete-galante painting, “Embarkation to Cythera” – now you guys aren’t gonna be looking like a bunch of Rococo dandies while you’re here are ya? ; )

    Speaking of painters, I think it’s Rembrandt’s 400th birthday today. God *he* must feel like shit. There’s a brilliant painter,who did magnificent self-portraits – much like yourself Sir Kilbee. Well, SK, do you think we can keep your memory going 400 years? Frankly I’d just be happy if the earth is still here in 40 years. Anyway, perhaps if you play the bass, while spanking a bottom and painting a self-portrait at the same time AND singing…how Dada!

    My ears long for your song, my eyes and heart for your art, and my wallet…will be empty, but I will be happy.:)

    You’re already #1, they just haven’t caught up to it yet 😉

    Looking fwd to your US travelogues. Ever read Henry Miller’s Air Conditioned Nightmare? His take on the US after living in Paris for years and travelling Greece. Might be up your alley.

    Safe travels to you and the guys! Looking fwd to catching ya on this side of the pond!

    Ha! Just a few days ago a commenter or two was accusing YOU of shameless self-promotion!

    But a bit of promotion is what you need. Promote baby promote! Flog the blog (but no bums — I don’t think I could handle pictures of smacked Kilbeybum). In interviews start every fourth sentence with “As I said in my blog…” or something similar.

    Of course your loyal blog fiends will continue to spread the word too. Just remember all us devoted souls when you’re at the top of the heap.

    Best wishes for a smooth flight. Looking forward to your tour tales. 🙂

    Maybe we could send them a trojan Kilbey to get you in the door…. Billy M.

    I just had a vibe here in Darwin….and it is to say please take a videocam with you and shoot the US trip…and get some Hollywood film makers to make you a video of the shows….
    surely some of the SKA travellers on here who are going to the show could do that….and then setup a site where we could all edit it and make the first cyberblog community vid…..

    market the fruck out of it…just imagine!
    AND we could all have fun!

    Dear Bro
    You’ll never compete against smacked bums although I respect your spirited sense of competition.
    Have moved you into the more up market section-Arts.
    This will give you a better crack at number one.
    Have a bearable flight and I look forward to your posts stateside.

    After Aphrodite, Greek goddess of love, was born out of the sea, the Zephyrs, or wind spirits, carried her to the coast of Cyprus where she was prepared for her introduction to the other gods. On the way to Cyprus they stopped briefly on Cythera, and that island became sacred to the goddess. The planet Venus, which bears the goddess’ Roman name, is also identified with Aphrodite, and therefore with love.

    I agree with Peter Podcast. Steve, you should be in another category. I looked at Arts and the current number one spot had a “Unique Visitors this Reset of 13,302”. Much more achievable than Personal at 39,551!

    Wishing The Church a wonderful, safe, fun and successful trip! I look forward to reading the posts from America. And Steve remember to flog the blog!

    You are number 10 in the arts section.

    (('{~_~}')) | 16 July 2006 at 4:53 am #

    Yes, Number 10 in the Arts category!

    Peter Podcast, the Art category is my vote!

    BTW, How did you do that?

    Today when I look at the blogtopsites icon there is a blank and no number.

    eek | 16 July 2006 at 5:16 am #

    Well…the personal blogs section has the bumsmackers and randy girls (and don’t forget the randy boys), but the arts section is rife with fashion blogs which even with his entry about his quest for the perfect jeans doesn’t quite fit.

    Category-wise I think personal fits best since SK comments about anything and everything.

    Then again I think he could easily be in the music section (and would be #22 there right now), but of course he doesn’t always talk about music. But hell, he’s a musician, so if he doesn’t fit there, who does? Of course, also being a poet and painter he does also fit the arts category too….

    Damn. Now I have a headache.

    I reckon you could get rid of the pic of the guy striking the ‘don’t shoot me’ pose and replace it with a pic of your freshly smacked bum cheeks. Couldn’t hurt…(?)

    Seriously, though, perhaps another mention on would help. I know I’ve explained your whereabouts to others and they just give me a blank stare…

    isolde | 16 July 2006 at 7:18 am #

    well checked out the arts blogs but seem full of fashion and photoshop so looks like you’d need an tour photographer taking glam pics .. could be fun for a while …. like about half an hour

    but i would be putting you in the humor section just for the satisfaction of beating madonna who is no 24 there for some incomprehensible reason, not to do with humor

    after that you could try the literature section? looks pretty good in there

    We won’t stop til we’re top of the cookery blogs. Maybe not even then unless there’s a really nice recipe for using left-over peas.

    WHERE’ER he be, on water or on land,
    Under pale suns or climes that flames enfold;
    One of Christ’s own, or of Cythera’s band,
    Shadowy beggar or Crœsus rich with gold;

    Citizen, peasant, student, tramp; whate’er
    His little brain may be, alive or dead;
    Man knows the fear of mystery everywhere,
    And peeps, with trembling glances, overhead.

    The heaven above? A strangling cavern wall;
    The lighted ceiling of a music-hall
    Where every actor treads a bloody soil–

    The hermit’s hope; the terror of the sot;
    The sky: the black lid of the mighty pot
    Where the vast human generations boil!

    Charles Baudelaire
