    You were looking a little like the Naughty Nurse’s lost orderly last night. Play that funky music, white boy!

    By the bye, don’t know if it was your idea or the Gov’s to light the incense before the show, but that must be the first time I’ve ever, ever come home from a performance smelling of anything other than stanky cig smoke. What an odd and pleasant bonus!

    Missing marvellous Melbourne, mostly maudlin, mildly moldy…missing mighty music.

    It’d be fun to sit next to The Choich on the plane for an hour, wouldn’t it?!

    must be hot in ol Melbo
    Was in St Yarra 4 year
    kiwi thou
    now in Auck.
    must say those Bohim Melbo sorts
    will let you charm them like no otha.
    they respect, and love the Choich.
    like all other well bred, deep thinkers
    and celestial groovers…and those sweet coloured
    pink and grey birds of neo-paradise.
    Will be there in spirit. Last years gig still
    echoin in my head.

    uhoh. I’m guessing the Beagle pup I got you for Christmas won’t be quite the hit I thought it was going to be….

    Damn. That will have to go on the rejected SK chrsitmas gifts pile. That pile is getting big….

    Jet’s newest cd…
    A Rapping Christmas cd…
    Duran Duran tries yet again to sing cd…
    the “The Backpackers Guide to Australian Internet Cafes” book…
    and “The Adventures of the Naughty Nurse: Vol. 3” DVD…

    Oh well….back to the drawing board…

    There is something deliciously perfect about signing on here everymorning and knowing that somewhere on the opposite side of the globe SK is ssssneaking about nassssty internet cafe’s, with the Jet loving Naughty Nurses of the world in order to tap out his little telegram to my soul…

    The cosmic contradiction is absolutley PERFECT.

    sk, I had you all for dead – well, you know what i mean: end 80’s-end all, excuse my ignorance. I was there at “special” concert @Newtown 11th.Smelt experience in my hair the next day from incense – like some other pleasant smells that stick… Your question: how was it for you? Answer: real special-revitalised experience and past memories, it’s true. Sounds like question from seasoned lover.How was it special for you, compared to other gigs? Or was it? I feel languid to ref. to ‘church merch’, ‘yet another’ and ‘ol’ rock and “tumbler”‘. Play to your five daughters,why don’t you -and i mean a good thing. You create through bass and voice(and other)I create through ‘pan’. My name is not ‘Peter’ but would love to feed ‘yer.To give some beauty back to you-had ‘neverland’ experience Dec 11th.
    Got my own place to cook and give- not a boudoir, sorry – but to cook Spanish food in momentos descuidados. Not sure how this works on ‘blog’ – I’m a vergin to messengesless messages…teach me.

    Had to sleep on this. (Twice)
    Except for my tiny enormous curiosity with the various whys and why nots for what occurs within us, I could never satisfy myself that anything would be achieved by the conversation. Hence no right of reply. And of course the conversations around, it’s just usually in a static format. It was an impulse 10 years ago and it’s the same fucking impulse that has landed me here now, much to my own shock. Anyway it was unfair then and it would be again. onemoment at bigpond dot com . The blog is great for a poke in the ribs but not for a poke in the eyes!

    I have no idea what a Common wealth Game is, but i heard it’s a big deal in the sporting community and lots of people watch it on something called television. Congratulations are in order, it certainly couldn’t of happened to a better band. With exposure like this pretty soon everyone on the planet will be turned on, digging the Church Vibe, it’s about freakin time to.

    Never in a million years would I imagine something like the Games, but there you go… SK’s full of contradictions.

    Wow, who was that. + or -10 year of guilt over a no return addressed letter. I don’t recognise my own words. Digging deeper as they say. What a ride, what a trip, what a hell, what irony. My apologies. It’s nice to be back.

    That was meant to say, digging deeper holes . . .. Needs more explanation, but that will have to do. Never avoid what necessary, what a mess, what turmoil, what confusion, which ways up, which way down, where’s the ground, i’m sure you know what I mean. So good to land.
