big deal
the big 6
does it feel any different?
nope.
maybe a bit quieter
but nuthin’s changed
of course not
how would it?
why would it?
a brand new day
a clean slate
a new leaf
start all over with you
inner walls vanish
bright surrounding hover
the future is tomorrow
this is a holy day
that can placate time
we may remain here indefinitely
or leave at once
dont worry
bout him or her
oh, did they say somethin’ nassty
about ya?
it all comes rebounding back
so they jus’ took care of themselves
i cant believe
its all turned out like this
after the sacfrifices
after the great leaps
after the understanding
aetheist science got the blues
you believe the stuff
and they believe in themselves
vishnu waiting patiently
filling up the cosmos
a tiny point
what are you enjoined to do?
not much
enjoyment
appreciation
yeah maybe
release
definitely
youll never understand during
you have to turn some corners
you have to try a little
you have to hatch out
but only w/ a struggle
im the same as you
maybe had the luxury
of more time
to think
about it all
but thats it…
sometimes realization
is this close
but today
its across a huge continent
where i dont really always wanna go
there is more to this
than meets the eye
i dont know my way either
but we can walk along together
i got a strange feeling
that there is something
so sublime
going on at the bottom
of all this
that its gonna keep you enthralled
for at least eternity
it aint gonna force itself on you
it aint gonna be easy either
thats the one thing
i am sure of
we gonna have to
give up control
we gotta make some decisions
bang
we gotta stop poking around
in the puddles
when we couldve swam thru the sea
you know what im saying
my olde fruit
?
we still have music
we still have some love left
surely we are on the path
somewhere
its january one
what does that mean
how are yer resolutions
so far?
have you already said
fuck it
and gone back to ye olde badde ways
youre only human
my young friend
give everyone a break
forget your little self
expand
extend
demand some Goode rock n roll
turn off the tv
dont believe em
when ya know theyre lying
dont go “straight”
you gotta keep the wolvies
from the door
i know
but not the “straight” way
we could already see
when we were kids
that the “straight” way
is not the only way
being a bohemian
means not going along with
the false jollity
fuck your tinsel hollywood
i want a fucking forest
take those gossip rags
and draw a fucking moustache on
paris hiltin’
go on
it makes ya feel great
dont let em tell ya
that bunch is having a great time
COS THEY AINT
look at elvis
or marilyn
or mariah carey
they got everything
whats wrong w/ those people?
if you had all that stuff
you’d be happy
wouldnt ya?
but it does nae work
we try to make it
but it doesnt
you can try and make a torch shine
but it wont if its battery is dead
all im asking you to do
is….
laugh
at us
at ourselves, of course
but at them
the guys who organised the witchtrials
the bright spark who dreampt up the inquisition
lets have a round of applause
for the bomb inventors
for the whale research boys
for that goode “straight” manne
who diligently came up with
napalm
mr hitler….
nice work
he actually killed off his bohemians
such was the perceived threat to his “straight”
world
theres a ton o’ guys deserved to be mentioned here
the guys who justified
bunker bombing baghdad
to get those naughty hussein boys
“sorry bout yer neighbourhood dude
but these guys have gotta die”
to all the fucking polly tishans
theyre all fucked
you know it
they know it
always the worst types
you really telling me
in all this country
they couldnt come up with someone
more honourable
more intelligent
more inspiring
more admirable
THAN THAT?
and him
our ones master
sauron without the charisma
and heart
fuck it
ladies and gents
if youre looking to these people for guidance
THE INSULT TO OUR INTELLIGENCE
IS BLATANT!!
NOW I ASK YOU
TO JOIN ME
IN LAUGHING OUT LOUD
thats why
when it comes to choosing
a philosophy
i say
make mine bohemian*
lemme have mah faith
lemme have mah doubts
im sorry
but i dont believe i am just
a evolved monkey
and none of this matters.
this is not my experience
thass why i sing my songs baybee
there just stabs in the limitless dark
theyre not about anything, child
they are some sort of question
i dunno what im doing
thats pretty obvious, olde beane
dont give up
if you just laugh at it all tho
see the fuckin hoax
for what it is
you say
that may be so, mister “straight”
tax me
fine me
send me to your fuckin war
but dont ask me to stop laughing
the “straights” are a fucking joke
theyve fucked this planet
they still are
and we stand back
and we let em
cos theyve got the power
but NO glory
fuck em
join me
this year
and everytime
you come face to face
with a fucking “straight”
laugh
i know
im gonna

happy new year fiendss
im gonna keep going in o6
sk

    Dear Mister Kay

    Before you delete the clumsy self-promotion of a humble nascent blogger inspired by your golden ramblings, please consider the following:

    – i came perilously close to a knuckle sandwich from a coupla stray neo-fascists when i defended your right to reverence at The Corner

    – earlier that same night i braved the poets from central casting whose punishment for leaving their berets at home was to write and recite 100 lines of excruciating, impenetrable verse. Luckily, the e i dropped in the joint’s medieval lavatory was starting to activate my follicles right about when the cruel metal seat of my putative chair would’ve otherwise been cutting all communication with my furthermost extremities.

    – i withstood the searing light of dusk, as refracted through the stained glass of that damn tent, and nodded in time with the fast disintegrating drumming switches of mwp as i sipped on an 8 dollar beer and missed out on my office party at which a colleague with a walrus moustache apparently clasped the buttocks of a usually reserved mail girl before crashing to the floor, moaning.

    So you see, it really is all about you Mister Kay (that, and i have no idea how else you’re meant to get a solitary cyber soul to distinguish your blog from the rest of the ingredients in this putrid soup). In other words, can y’all check this out before it’s deleted: http://meandmeandiandwe.blogspot.com/

    Hey kibbles,

    Tony Dicke here from Arithma records. You see, we never meant to let you go. If shit had been under my watch, you and the other beans would have been sprouting large in the US of fucking A.

    Here’s the deal, we have sort of a revival going on in the music biz. Bands like interpole, BRMACDC, etc., they’re all stealing from bands like the choir. We’ve taken 79 surveys of mba types who told us they got “the message” from spinning gold afternoon fit backwards. They all gave resounding thumbs up to the idea of getting the choir back on the label for mass production.

    In order to move product, we’ve brought in Pdiddy or “Piddle” as he makes us call him, to lay down the loops and ultimately pick the new members of your band on his mtv show “making the band”. Yeah, piper, toppes, and ploog are great but they don’t have the look we want. Your great with the base but we think your main asset is your face…so we’re going for a seasoned man-band thing with you playing the “cute” one.

    The money will be there. I guarantee it! We’re giving you 1/68 of a percent on all songs that make a celebrity playlist on itunes plus, we’ll commit to re-releasing all the albums in five years just like the choir! Just think of the royalties! Of course we retain all control of your music, image, future children, and soul but you never cared about the details.

    I’m sending you a one-way ticket to LA on tomorrow’s earliest flight. We’ve got you a hotel room right next to the orange county mall. As I remember, you had a thing for shoes right? We will send a car for you at noon and meet you at the studio. Say hi to the fam and wish them a merry new year.

    This is going to be fucking huge man.

    I miss ya more than ever when you write these kinds of things. This tiny little puddle only has easily attainable, fleeting pleasures in it and I can’t help but feel that the endless and subtle oceans beneath us (within us?) are what we should be searching for.

    As always, it makes me ever so happy to know that you are out there somewhere in this giant maze that we call life.

    love,

    Beautifully put, SK. Besides the politicians and the general “straights”, you know who really gets me PO’d? Scientists. They think they have all the answers. “Well because we haven’t seen it, therefore it does not exist.” Does this make any sense to you? These “scientists” are breaking one of their own set-in-stone laws: ya can’t prove somethin’ til you’ve seen all the evidence. Yet they reguarly make vast assertions such as “God does not exist,” “No basis for intelligent design,” “We are alone in the universe,” “Near Death Experience is nothing more than your brain shutting down,” (and my favorite: “Aliens/UFO’s don’t exist because they couldn’t get here in a spaceship, it’s too far away”) ad infinitum. How incredibly arrogant/ignorant these supposed “great minds” often are! We all know why such ideas are frowned upon by the “establishment.” Any deviation from the “norm” would blow their tiny egocentric universe to bits and give away all the power. We need a major revelation here. Is it Jesus coming back to Earth? Aliens landing on the White House lawn? Something’s got to happen to snap the general population out of their trance. It may not happen for a long time, we may not be around to see it. But I hope it’s coming soon. Thanks again for your positive and insightful post.

    That started so positive. “Straights” v Bohemians*, is that the same old troubles with new names? Your response to the tag you’ve given the “straights” is evolving into something a little darker than just an observation of that lizard part of our brains sk. Which part of our brain is responsible for persecuting ignorance or for laughing at another’s failure to penetrate the fog of programming or beliefs we’re all installed with here? Is it going to help the situation? Lament, protest, do what we can, but doesn’t bitter just make us as ugly as the rest? And then there’s just that wee little fact that we’re all here sk. I suspect, as you say, there is something more than just material evolution at play here. But we all must have believed it once to be here even if we’ve found a way not to believe it now. Aren’t we all “straights” trying to get out of this material straight jacket for good?

    Ps. If it makes you feel any better this little bit of bloggy was written and posted on pure solar power from an old piece of farming land being turned back into forest. It ain’t that hard to do. If they won’t we still can!

    Richard Dawkins first coined the idea of memes, Howard Bloom suggests history is basically a battle of memes. Ideology, religion and beliefs, politics and most manifestations of spirituality are memes. Take away the memes from the man and what does it meme?

    New years are like birthdays, nothing changes except your own perception….and hangovers stay the same.

    Steve – Aurora is one of the ones who has been on this earth before, in another time. I’ve always believed that we re-visit again, maybe until we get it right or to learn from past mistakes, to experience the things we havent, to teach others or even to be punished for the sins we’ve created. If thats so, then there’s a lot who are going to be coming back here again and again. A very wise witch once told me about debits and credits. And I believe that we’re forever connected to the same people – thats why they created the internet 🙂

    What would you like to come back as in your next incarnation, if you have a choice?

    No Sue. We will never escape this Hell!!! If you know a way out please share! I heard there was another planet beyond Earth, a newer more simple place that only a select few will get their souls zapped to. Getting a soul there requires heaps of universal magic power and a million Dyanas working in harmony. Blessed be to all. Happy New Year, war is ?????

    Ah, but I dont believe we necessarily come back in the physical or on this planet. Trick question? Tricks always have hidden answers, this one doesnt.I just hope that if I am coming back, Im going to know about it before they zap my memory and that I have the choice. As the populations increasing, it makes you wonder if hell isnt as hot as they make it out to be 🙂

    The other day I went to the Robin Hood at Charing Cross & had to eat my $5.00 steak with a couple of ladies who worked for Mac Bank.
    They were telling me about the amazing parties the bank puts on, how they had one a year ago at one of the wharves down & the Rocks where there were 1600 employees & how it started with an empty hall with the C E fuckinn O in a boxing ring in the centre to speak about they’re End of Fuckinn Yawn results & then these curtains parted back on all sides revealing 100 diffrent asian fast food stands , a geisha band & ice sculptures flowing with Vodka.
    How I wouldve loved to have seen you deliver the above blog to those masses.
    Now that would be comedy or is that just a fucked up perspective?
