im being very naughty
a naughty being
im s’posed to be doing my accounting
i gotta meeting w/ my accountant at 3
its about 20 to 12 now
why fucking hurry it?
theres always the tim(e) bandit method
lets say you got 2 weeks to do something
ah you can take it easy that 1st week
as the second week begins
have today off
you still got 6 days
on the fifth day you think
tomorrow im really gonna start
on the 4th day you go
no tomorrow im really gonna start
after all, times tight now
on the 3rd day you think
why worry
its a 2 day job if i work really hard
on the 2nd day you think
if i leave it until tomorrow
i will have no option but to complete it
in a glorious 1 day burst
on the last day you look at it
and say christ!
i couldnt get it all done today
so why even start
you ask for another 2 week extension
and the process is ready to begin all over again
baybee thats called a rationale
its a device to follow wherever yer peccodillos leading ya
imagine if teenagers said wherever
instead of whatever
boy i used to love that word whatever
now its so over bloody done
the twillies
got all that lingo down pat
mixed in with swedish accent
boy a whatever can go a long way to getting my goat
(no harm was done to the goat in the making of this sentence)
whatever daddeeeee!
aurora calls em the fashion freeks
and says she preferred em
when they didnt get up at 12 and go to bed at 3 in the morning
despite arguing n critizing each other all day
at 3 in the morning
theyre curled up on sofa together
watching some very stupid tv show
and they have a rationale
although theyve never put it into words
i will attempt it now
we ARE cultured educated feministick emancipated swedish chicks
therefore we can indulge in all this gossip celeb paris brad bullshit
as a kind of anthropological excursion into a tasteless world
and we can indulge in it as much as we want cos we wont get hooked…
oh but its addictive nasty stuff theyre peddling, those goss tycoons
as nasty as crack in its own way
virulent festering bile n dribble
oh god it makes you feel so badde reading those mags
just one goss rag makes me want to tear off the top
of my head n change my brain filter
cos yon gossie has fuckin clogged mah delly cate brain
can you truly dig the harm this stuff is doing?
the twillies can wade thru a hundred dentist waiting rooms of goss rags
and still be hungry for more
is there a connexion between the goss rags
and the “foundation” so many young women wear
on top of perfect downy youthful skin
a layer of blechhh!
ooh thats looks nasty
look even if yer olde n wrinkled like me
you can trowel that fucking stuff on
and its still gonna EMPHASISE yer flaws!
if you young what you need it for
who sold ya that lousy idea?
throw that rubbish away baybee
you dont need all that junk on yer dial
and the perfume…..
oh it can make me feel so sick
in a lift or a train
some bint with an overpowering sickly sweet atmosphere
whos chucked on some godawful “scent”
whats wrong with the way you smell as you are?
if you bathe regularly like the time being
you should have a pleasant warm woody aroma like me
and that goes for the men too
forget that ‘orrible ‘orrible o.d. cologne
aftershave and underarm goop
brut…have ya ever whiffed that muck
i had some brut underarm spray on once
when i still used poisonous aluminium filled stuff like that
when i was 18
it turned all my white tshirts grey under the arms
imagine what it was doing to me
if i get a disease in my armpits im gonna sue brut
sue brut…good name for all gurl rock band
people throw that stuff away
its a con they sold ya
women with makeup n perfume scared me as a kid
n they still do
a big pair of sticky red lips comin towards ya
and a cloud of some suffocating pong
no thanks
stay away from me aunty maude
dont pick me up n dont hug me
its grotesque
im a man
im no fool
i tell ya most men dont like it
you should be relieved
cant we all join our sacred hands
and proclaim
we dont want make up
we dont want perfume
we dont want aftershave n aluminium underarm gloop
we dont want goss rags
maybe thats a chorus for something off the nu album
ahh (being eating vegemite toast)
well now im starting to enter the bargaining phase of my accnting denial
its 12o6 and still no veggie sausages cooked
nk + her little protege are having a nap
and im here alone
wreaking havoc
haha! oh ho!
the time being called for his pipe
he called for his bowl (what was in his bowl, though?)
and he called for his fiddlers 3
he had 3 fucking fiddlers?
wow some affluent king, right?
and dont forget sue bruts new record
grey underarm fixed

I’m still the same at tax time, going to the post just before they close. My son’s a chip of the old block, I can’t change him like my parent’s couldn’t change me.

    some people natrually smell so bad even after a shower. i knew someone personally that just had the worst body odour he needed to be drowned in after shave. sorry steve but I can’t agree with you there. makeup, i do agree. we don’t need it. but a little bit of the smelly stuff, some (not all) people should not live without it. sometimes i walk down the street and walk by some bloke who reeks so bad I can smell it for the next three hours! no thanks, i had enough smell to last me a lifetime!

    My mother had this friend called Mary – who was an 80 yr old version of Mrs Mills from “Mouldy Old Doh” Fame – and “Auntie” Mary, when she’d see me would move fast towards me to give a hug so hard, that she almost morfed me into her hulk of a torso. Her cleavage was ginormous to the extent that when squashed between them, it was like being at the bottom of a Welsh valley. Then,if that wasnt bad enough, she’d then slobber on my kneck with a wet kiss, as her brissley yardbrush 5 O’clock shadow (from a day some decades back)chaffed my delicate cheek like a cheese grater. No kiddin!

    Now, I’m not normally one to stoop to famous quotes…..but I actually sent this one to MYSELF last week….as I was wasted time, fucked around, googled, myspaced, SK-ed, dawdled, doodled and digressed while I should have been working.

    New to this whole blogging thing but I have to say I love the posts Steve! A friend of mine is a fortified fan or should i say appreciator. And as he is a pretty cool guy I thought I’d check out your latest album. An entire discography later I am also now I suppose an appreciator too. (never been sure as to the definition of ‘a fan’).

    The reason for my new found blogging is that somebody has stuck a page up under my friends name which is completely not him? Matt Davison is one of those Church avatars that relishes and spreads the deep and meaningful ‘Kilbyisms’ with fair conviction. I like his comments as they provoke a touch of thought.

    Then someone tries to take the piss. I can only assume that this someone is the kind of ‘fan’ that gives synthetic meaning to the word, so much so I don’t like to use it. It is probably the kind of person that has to wear blatant apparel to prove the point. The kind of person who would wear an ‘I love NY’ t-shirt in New York. He (or she) is probably an imitater rather than an appreciator? It has always frustrated me when people try to be something they are not. There is only one Steve Kilby, he is talent. Don’t try and be him, enjoy him, let him inspire and then BE original, it’s far more respected. But hey… what do we all care the world has Bluetooth and Microwave ovens so we’re sweet right?!

    Nothing can champion the human spirit like creativity. Keep it live, keep it real and keep it human. Steve – you are a musical genuius and legendary scriber. Matt – the paintings are looking incredible. And whoever the geezer is setting up fake profiles – do you truely have nothing better to do? Put on Block, light a blunt and enjoy being alive. Done.

    smelly stuff is overrated. It also tastes bitter and absinthian! I think i’d rather lick the petrol cap of my dirty old corolla. I like natural smelling. not necessarily dirty… clean but natural. I once read that you can change your smell by diet. Funny as it can also change yer look. you are what you eat, so you can either be sweet lil’ peach or a grotty naan covered in thick potent orange goop! I’m with the movement for naturalization. Throw yer spread on, spray on goop away. be comfortable in ya own skin. if you wanna go crazy pop some alluminium kitchen foil under ya pits. churr.

    Sorry but I disagree.
    I myself have much more confidence a little made up and smelling fresh. Nothing too heavy tho.
    Dont get me wrong, too much can look awful. And I do hate to see it caked on very young girls.
    I love the ”Greenday” look of eyeliner on men also.

    I do think you contradict yourself as you have worn the ”eyeliner!” And enjoy looking tanned..not a great deal of difference, me thinks ??

    All in moderation i say, a dash of this, a tincture of that 😉 I do love scents and aromas of all kinds. The worst thing sk is when a scent reminds you of someone else! Well sometimes a good thing, other times not. Who over the age of Israels wandering in the wilderness isnt taken back by a whiff of dads Old Spice?.. or that oh so popular 80’s perfume Opium!

    I am such a procrastinator, so much of a procrastinator that I missed the perfect to post this on yesterday’s comments section while people were actually reading it. (I did post it there a little while ago though) Anyway, here it is now:

    There are new paintings up on the SK art site now. And a painting which was featured on this very blog a few weeks ago will be up for auction on ebay in in a couple of days. hmmm…I wonder which painting that could be?? You can get a look at that painting on the SK art website and there will be a link to the ebay auction as soon as it goes up. Another painting — an early (2003) Steve self portrait — will also be auctioned on ebay at the same time. The image of that one is not on the SK art site, but there will be a link to the ebay auction of it there there (once it goes up on ebay that is).

    Go take a look. You might find something you like. 🙂


    And I was so proud this year — I actually started working on my taxes a full 30 hours before they were due. That’s really good for me. 🙂
    I have a problem with a lot of strong scents. Some stores I can’t even go into because I can’t breathe with the heavy scents they have, and I also have to get out of the laundry detergent/soap aisle of the grocery store. Even given that I do have a weakness for scented soaps. Most mass produced ones make my skin burn and break out into a rash, but I have found all natural, handmade soaps with scents I can stand. However I do have to buy them about a year before I plan to use them so I can let them air out to rid them of excess scent.

    With any luck the Twillies will discover for themselves how shallow and ultimately unsatisfying celebrity gossip “culture?” really is and will stop paying attention. Besides, kids — teenagers especially — are supposed to do things that drive their parents bonkers. 😉

    i say moderation on the smells and makeup. i live in georgia as you know…it’ll be about 92 F today. most everyone here needs a little deodorant. i know a guy who doesn’t wear anything…he says he doesn’t need it. i’m pretty sure he’s the only one who feels that way. he could melt the paint on the walls. personally, i wear unscented deodorant, because i don’t want to smell like winter pine or a summer breeze any more than smell stinky. i think certain colognes and perfumes are quite nice…have two that i wear. (not at the same time) but i don’t need anyone else or myself bathing in the stuff to where it takes over the whole room. makeups fine as long as it’s not caked on…i agree on the too much foundation thing. i like it to accent features, not be a mask. but what do i know? i’ve sure piled my share of eyeliner on back in the day. when was back in the day you ask? i think it was a thursday…

    yeah, gotta agree with you about the celeb tripe and nonsense that we’re being bombarded with. and our young people are being poisoned with the wrong ideas about who they should be.

    i never was much of a fan of cosmetics, although i do use them, but very sparingly during the workweek. on the weekends, though, i don’t at all.

    gotta agree with ya about makeup. i hate it. lipstick really makes me cringe. who wants to kiss that? same for foundation. none of it is necessary.

    however, i do like a little light scent. something that lingers in the air very delicately after a pretty girl goes past, or the scent of it clinging to your shirt, just at the edges of perception. but of course there’s nothing more sublime than the scent of a girl’s hair on a pillow…

    BTW – they did get ya there, killa. have you forgotten your old makeup days?? 😉


    – sue – yeah, i remember the old spice. and that godawful brut 33! actually, even worse, this old couple, a friend of my parents, once bought me a 5-pack aqua velva gift set. 5 putrid essences. i poured them behind the toilet to freshen up the washroom.

Your skills are really developing, steve. You can really see it in the SK & Scarlet painting, her face is really well done. Getting better and better all the time, and at such a pace.

    Once upon a time Taylor (and the rest of us) sat next to SK chatting before sound check, Taylor then excused herself from the table to get ready for the show. She came back having “done” her lips, cheeks and eyes; SK took one look at her and said “My god, you left looking like a little boy and came back a beautiful woman.”

    It’s comments like these that keep the makeup industry in business.

    here we go…assuming again, are we? your generalisations are out of character. you’re so refined when it comes to art and music, literature and culture – you pile it on real thick. but what about ritual and punctilio? is there no place left for gender usance? i bet almost all of the women you’ve ever fallen for wore make-up the first time you saw them. and i’m sure you turn to take a second look at women who avail themselves of the resplendence cosmetics and gilded regalia can offer. i wonder if you’d be attracted to a woman with hairy legs and armpits, bum-fluff and side-levers. if you want natural, go all the way, baby – no tan, no hair removal, no skin moisturiser, no tattoos, no piercing, clad in untreated, unadorned, natural, colourless fibres sewn at home in any which way just to cover your private property.

    don’t you know it’s all about the fantasy? i think you envy women because they get to do all the things you loved doing when you were young and pretty enough to get away with them. you’re like an old woman, bitterly preaching ‘cos if you dared to have fun with colour you’d just look like a very ugly, old clown. that’s why your paintings are so juvenile and colourful. you love paisley, rainbows, and colourful food. you love being pampered. don’t tell me you wouldn’t enjoy someone bathing you in exotic oils and preening your hair and body…giving you a facial and having fun with make-up…putting on the oldest records and falling all over the past. you need to get together – in private – with a bunch of old dreamers and live young among the old before you lose your mind and live it for real. pretend a little on the outside. the contrast would be nice, don’t you think? just don’t do it when your kids are around.

    getting back, why should it matter what men think? you really shouldn’t represent them because you think and mostly ‘feel’ like a woman. try looking at it from the inside of the other side. and don’t lie – you love wearing sticky, red lipstick when it comes off a fine pair of lips, kissing yours in that…way – the way you describe to yourself almost all the time.

    you know who i am, don’t you? the rest of you can …

    i woke with a thought, something i was going to write you, it was like… “am i ambiguous because i think i know what i want or is it because really i have no idea?”

    i decided this thought was more intended for my own introspection, and then became daunted the tasks of the day (full time artist, full time occultist, full time student, full time bullshit job that is killing me, part time figure drawing teacher at a new local art school that is saving me – which you will see a publication from – and i promised myself no more anonymous post, but i’m addicted… i’m addicted…)

    is it important to be direct or directly important to wonder?

    all personal yet universal rhetorical questions of course.

    bring on the discourse…

    One’s personality is of course the most important thing, but I do love my MAC makeup! This is what happens when you spend your formative years growing up and seeing Nick Rhodes on TV all the time, ya see. That was how I thought all guys should look in my warped adolescent mind, haha.

    BTW, to all the men posting on here who say they don’t like makeup on women because it’s not natural, I hope that none of you have any porn on your computers or stray magazines laying about your home. Cuz that’s the ultimate when it comes to being, er, fake (lipstick lesbians, ahem). It’s a double-standard methinks; guys may SAY one thing, but they all do another. ;-}

    I had to do a 800m ocean swim in 20min as part of some course. I had 3 months to prepare. Plenty of time. Months passed, many excuses, it’s too cold, it too wet, can’t find my boardies. Two weeks to go, no use starting now, better start resting for the testing. Exam day, cold, choppy, swam my guts out, passed exam. I have not swum since that day.

    you can buy aluminium-free deodorant – even the supermarket (here in aust) stocks it. comes in a purple, plastic, pump spray bottle. or you could try using baby or talcum powder. i’ll tell you what else works for those allergic to scented products – sorbolene cream.

    Gossip, Gossip, Gossip

    Fonts of youth
    neednt feel so betrayed
    beauty is vibrant
    also silent n subdued

    children in need to be freed
    or cruise into the spears
    of unfleshed yesteryears
    keep it simple cupid
    taste your own envy even
    so far from embracing the deity we are..

    6 a.m. are you still beautiful baby?

    or just sarcastic.

    I am an actor.. gotta wear make-up sometimes, for a while I used to put on a glowing powder thinking no one would notice..But they did!!
    silly really I look heaps better without it

    As for aluminium in underarm, it’s very true, and very dangerous..

    Natural smell is alway’s better…and woman love it” think Pheromone” aka Telepath.


    Ps* good on ya woolfie (Welcome)

    i hate make-up too, and the fact that we’re not considered attractice enough without it, even though we already are the better looking sex! BUT- and a few commenters have said this before me – men don’t look twice at you if you’re not “sexually glowing”, and you’re one of them, man. Make-up these days is applied so subtly that you guys don’t even realize it’s there. You’re simply being duped. You don’t like make-up? Sure you do.

    Oh, how I love it when the *big issues* get debated on this blog.

    It’s funny how a few of Kilbey’s tossed off words about make-up gets you lot more angry and more passionate and more fiery than when he spoke about the death of a young woman in Sweden.

    I always use the patchouli scented deodorant block from Lush. Very enviromentally friendly organisation who only use vegan products. The beautiful lady who sold me my merchandise at the Church gig in London commented on how nice I smelled. 😀

    Anonomouse at 6am you are a fukwit.

    no balls to say ur name but a lack of them to badger someone u r jealous of for stating ssomething he fels about RIGHT NOW. So what if the past was what it was your idealized dream of sanctity n lash shows how ill informed, grotesque and academically and intelligently undernourished you actually are. go n pick pansies n blow em out ur arse dip shit.

    Altres, i love patchouli scent. I always carry a small vial in my handbag. There’s also a good effective non-aluminium aussie Tea Tree deodorant made by OK.
