your modest humble hero
(unless youre one of those carping harping nagging pricks)
your jack of all trays
your source with nice ingredients
your re-nay-sonts man
your velvet voiced bricklaying fool
your immaculate poetry vomiting buffoon
yes
the olde one
the mean one
the druggy one
the smart one
the one who travels by thought
nightwalking delver of mind
stupidly eloquent
hideously handsome
wishful genie
strangely mangey panther
devil squirrel
yesterdays man today
captain paisley
the giving hedonist
the thinking mans thinking man
the thinking womans everyman
the old womans consolation
the crazy womans valium
the young womans dream uncle
the stupid womans opposite
the white womans great hope
the black womans mannish boy
the childrens good daddy
the aliens peacemaker
to the dead i become closer
to the living i fade from sight
for the hungry i am mouldy bread and muddy water
for the philistine i am fucking anathema
for the jealous i am over rated atrocity
for the devotee i am the nectar of conjugal love
for the stranger i am the familiar
for the familiar i am the stranger
to the weary i push energy
to the unitiated i offer no solace
to my enemies i bring defiance
to my well-wishers i bring neutrality
to my helpers only deep appreciation
to my critics only scorn
2 years of blogge
2 years honing my craft
growing up in public
when im already so so olde, childe
2 years of suffering the potshots
of various antagonists who drift through these waters
2 years of nice comments too
embarassments and triumphs
marvellous writing in my very own style
after all the people who ever wrote in english
my writing is instantly identifiable
one sentence you know its me
like my songs
i do things my way
and i have carved a very small niche
tttb is quite a small success
some of you cant help yourselves
dont feel guilty
this blogge is always a work of love
i aint giving you ironic bullshit here
i believe my blogge is some kinda literature
i believe all the great writers would have utilised this technology
i have stunned myself that day after day
i have churned this out of the thin air
its a challenge to ones self
writing becomes easier and easier for me
sentences appear fully formed in my brain
my blogges are written by intuition
saraswati goddess of the arts i honour you
i love to write
i write to love
so what?
take whatever you like
make some scornful remark
or appreciate my old fashioned dedication
i pull myself apart here
i examine and i report
i fly off the handle
i hector and i abuse
i am a petty tyrant of a nonexistent realm
how long its gonna take to get into your empire
i am a wordslinger electronique
i am a honey tongued liar
i am the old school
but
i am the new school too
a revolution of the heart
we need to become our real selves
follow my tragectory since 2001
how i was then
what i am now
i shed my skin and i change
yet at the deep heart of what you like
the stuff that some is still digging after 25 years
my aesthetic standards remain constant
my unenviable task is to prove that old dont meant cold
because not me
im heating up
painkiller is the best solo record ive done
i doubt that youll even debate it
at this late stage of the game
i am marshalling all my skills as before
except now i throw in patience and a lighter touch
up against myself i am improving
i wouldnt mention it
if i were some old hack trading on milky whey
in commercial terms i am a tiny amoeba
crawling on the spasming body of the giant corporations
as they sink into nonexistence
due to an unforeseen turn of events
but i know the young me
would love where the olde me has taken his schtick
via a few other mes whove tended to neglect it a little
ladies and gentlemen
i give you 2 years of time being
there you go
compile it
quote it
steal from it
contribute
comment
be nice now
without nice
well
its just not nice…..

    It is certainly an achievement to move forward with your craft and to add to its layers.
    You are an illustrator through firstly music, then art, writing, (your great gift) but the living of a life is the real work of art.
    I don’t think your touch is lighter or your patience improved cos you still don’t suffer fools for or agin.
    It’s been fun.
    Thanks.

    As someone new, could anyone please explain to me the deleted comments.
    Are they deleted by the commenter or the blogger?
    It is confusing as there are both positive and negative comments on here so I assumed comment was removed by commenter. When leaving a comment I don’t see this function.
    So if it is removed be Blogg author is it really offensive or not PC or something personal.
    I know that this is not a forum but confusion on this detail has left me unsure of the responsibilities as a commenter.
    An answer would be much appreciated

    Steve,
    I just realized that you have, with your not quite self-effacing exposure of your innermost faith in your own vision, have served to lead your readers into more thorough searches within themselves for such faith and the creative self in which to place it.

    Poetry readings and plays are as close as any author has come to “performance literature” until your blog. You are to literature as a jazz musician is to the standards he riffs in live jam sessions. The readers are there live looking over your shoulder watching while you gather each phrase, those letters pour on the page like notes from a bass sax, your bare emotions, a stark contrast to your reader’s honest admissions to themselves, cutting through the murk with embarrassed flushes.

    Write on, brother, you are a revelation to this one who is still learning too. Open hearts don’t require surgery.

    “Captain Paisley” – I like that. I’m still amazed that you offer your hand, and inside your open palm a window appears below the outstretched fingers to give us a glimpse, if just a sliver and a slice, of the internal workings of the protean mind of TTB. Insights, reminisces, exotic narratives of depth and decanters filled with strange elixers, poetic musings, travelogues, assorted argy-bargy, exhortations, exorcisms, rants and raves.

    I enjoy it all, White Hippy Moses. Thank you for the labors of love and daily missives.

    “unless youre one of those carping harping nagging pricks” – LMAO

    A happy anni-verse-ary, TTB πŸ™‚

    it’s been a cool, cool ride. i believe that this is indeed literature in a new form. the demand to create day after day and to publish it instantly, at the speed of thought… It’s something that few could pull off with such eloquence, day after day. To be honest, i’m amazed at and inspired by how proliferous you’ve become.

    it’s been a fascinating exploration of a life. i liken it to a modern Montaigne, with his honest, biting essays (‘essai” = ‘trial’).

    Looking fwd to another year. I wonder where it’ll go?

    Sk’s blog and my fight for animal rights (God’s creatures) are the only two positive addictions I have in my life (Not Including The Church, Jeff Beck, Morrissey, Moby, Chrissie Hynde, Tom Scholz and other rock music).

    Sk’s writing is equally deep and entertaining. So spiritual and emblematic of a sage, an oracle and at times a pertinent profit of doom. He has an enormous and seemingly boundless vocabulary. The Creator or Eternal spirit bestowed him with sooo much talent.

    Isidore and Dabble are going to be very hard to surpass as Sk’s finest non-Church CDs. Can’t wait to find out!! Veleska is very cool too!

    veleska1970 | 21 November 2007 at 4:57 pm #

    thanks for the last two years, steve. i’m forever grateful that you decided to take part in this great venture. we have learned so much about you as an artist and a human being. i don’t think there has ever been an artist who has made the effort that you have to reach out to his admirers, not on this level of intimacy.

    *********

    now, if you don’t mind, steve, i’d like to make a public service announcement: to whomever said whatever about me, you’re wasting your time, honey. i never saw whatever it was and never will. in fact i had no idea anything was said until this morning when i read up on the few remaining comments from yesterday by andyL and sue and restaurant mark and genx and a few others (thanks, guys!!), just before i read today’s post from steve. and no, my curiosity was NOT piqued to go back and read whatever it was.

    don’t flatter yourself~~you are not THAT interesting.

    i’ve made this known privately to a few people, so i’ll make it publicly known to you–> i ceased to read any anonymous comments a very long time ago~~like, say, 6 or 8 months ago!! when i open up the comment box, i very quickly scroll through it in search of someone i recognize, and i read their comments, and then continue to scroll until i reach the next person, and so on and so forth. i’ve had a lot of jobs that have required me to do spreadsheet proofreading, so believe me, i know how to speed-read text quickly in search of specific words, like certain commenters’ names. all else is ignored, including my own name, haha!!

    i do not read anything that has “anonymous” in the name line, and i certainly don’t read anything that has a stupid made-up name (especially if it takes up more than one line of text!!) i think i can count on one hand how many commenters i actually read. they know who they are. πŸ˜‰

    i’m sure anyone would agree that we all have enough negative crap in our lives enough without wanting to deliberately add to it….when i read steve’s blog, i want to be able to come away from it enlightened and inspired, not dragged down by some pitiful asshole like you. so i don’t read your comment. go back and read that line again, slowly–> i…don’t…read…your…comment.

    oh, i’m sure that after you read this, you’ll blast me again, **shrug** but i assure you that you are a lonely voice in the wilderness. your comment won’t get my attention, which is what you want. i’ll never see it. so why don’t you take a deep breath, go have a nice walk around the block and direct your negative energy elsewhere. in fact, why don’t you flip that energy around to the positive and do something worthwhile with it? there’s plenty of soup kitchens that need volunteers. it takes a lot more effort to be nasty than it does to just be civil.

    ***********

    ok, steve~~sorry i hijacked your comment box, but this had to be said. my point was made, so i won’t say it again.

    lotza love…..

    A shot in the arm or the dark
    Give me it
    And here’s your humble ruble in return
    A transaction of ease and honesty
    Intellectually sound
    Ethically jolly
    Metaphysically smiley
    And
    In return for your services as creator

    thank you dear readers
    to answer a few things here
    a different message appears if a comment is deleted by me
    a different message if deleted by author
    in 2 years only 2 or 3 comments i have deleted…
    yes you can mention dt or rp or karin(one” a”, idiot)
    in fact karin lives round the corner from me
    shes the mother of my dear twillies
    and we’re best friends
    i see her every day
    ploogie is mentioned on here from time to time
    in context
    so too donnette..
    what i find laughably offensive
    is when you and other stirrers
    think youre upsetting my applecart
    by merely mentioning their names
    and some scrap of old information you read
    a long long time ago
    ploog left 17 years ago
    im embarassed that you think you can embarass me
    so easily…
    an old girlfriend
    a guy i used to play with
    so what?
    do you know them?
    or do you think youre needling me by mentioning them
    i have no secrets (that youd know about sunshine!)
    who are you, little prick, that you so desperately seek to irk irk irk and raise my ire
    come see me face to face
    lets sort this out
    look me in the eye
    and ask
    what you would ask
    or be blasted!
    go veleska
    chastise those bullies
    (or is it all that same little prick
    i think it maybe)
    thank you my old and trusted readers
    you are the core of my (in) sanity
    welcome back the waverers
    gimme a second or third chance
    welcome neophyte
    you are most welcome
    im onto something
    now

    Veleska, rock on girl. My comment yesterday was mainly aimed at the nasty person making evil remarks at Steve, but it also applies to everyone i love. I know you dont read those comments πŸ™‚ People expending their energy being hurtful and cruel, its such a waste of the short life we have here, at least be fucking clever at it.

    The only faintly disappointing thing about your second anniversary is how frighteningly quickly the time has gone.

    Just bought for my wife for Christmas a book with selected entries from Samuel Johnson’s dictionary. It’s got some wonderful words and some hilarious definitions. I can’t help but think you and Sam might have got along.

    ‘muse’ – the power of poetry

    ‘fribbler’ – one who professes rapture for the woman, and dreads her consent

    ‘orgasm’ – sudden vehemence

    (my favourite so far) ‘memory’ – exemption from oblivion

    and for some of the anons:

    ‘nithing’ – a coward, dastard, poltroon

    ‘pursy’ – shortbreathed and fat

    ‘blowze’ – a ruddy fat-faced wench

    ‘wantwit’ – a fool; an idiot

    I’m curious, TTB – what is that exotic and strange instrument you play in your new photo? Those turning keys are wild……has the sound been captured in song? Oxydental perhaps? (which I happen to love, by the way)

    “Einstein sent a cruiser to another dimension
    strange little beasties on the surface tension….
    a plague of Maharishis in a post-ecstatic haze”

    Excellent song.

    The annual Turkey Holocaust known in America as Thanksgiving Day is hours away. What a dreadful day. Millions of American families sit at a dinner table and stare at a thick bird carcass and systematically gorge on it to celebrate.

    Before I meet with my truly great relatives I will watch football and listen to solo SK CD’s. I will then eat at the children’s table with two and three year olds. I will not lay my eyes on the Turkey carcass. Thanksgiving is my annual mashed potato and mixed nuts day. When I am given alleged vegetarian dressing that was right next to the bird I will call Clancey the dog and ne will devour it faster than the speed of light. Man’s best friend indeed!!

    Happy 2nd Blog anniversary Dude !

    You really do host the best blog.

    But do avoid the jealous pricks stealing your idea’s trip.

    It just reads like stoner paranoia.

    Congratulations!
    I’ve always found your writing engaging and beautiful. Remembering what it was like to wait for the next SK poem in the old Church fan newsletter of the late 1980s-early 90s, I have been very blessed to have read your words every day for the last 2 years.

    Thank you so much for giving…
    Mike (in Canada)

    Congrats to you, Eskey.
    I don’t think I would have written my story if this blog didn’t give me insight into your story.

    I knew the day I heard your
    notes and words
    I knew that you pulled from
    the past, present and
    what there is to be
    I knew that I was home.

    Deep And Sincere Pleasures,
    M

    And that, is very cool. That’s the best thing anyone can ask for of their work – is that they themselves as a detached listener would like it!

    Has it been two years already? Wow. Thanks for sharing your two years with us.
