to tell you the truth
i dont know what im gonna write today
i feel disgruntled by myself
tired of my tricks
and unable to surprise myself
it is hard to surprise oneself
and its no wonder really
nevertheless i would like to give myself a little surprise
or get me something nice for my birthday
at time of writing i had only about 12 comments
on yessadays blog… and a load of them had been deleted…
it saddens me to have to turn off the anons
i dont like censorship much
but i never foresaw that some loony would be terrorizing me
at this ripe old age
just for writing a blog
its funny seeing people come n go
i must admit i sometimes regret the whole carny-voor schism
god…
its funny
its hilarious
the politics of running this thing
all the stupid things ive done on here
plus
all the sublime masterpieces
im sorry to be big headed (just one more time)
but tell me please
apart from maybe sam sejavka..
are there any other killers out there
knocking out this shemozzle EVERY day…?
i sit down every day and i come up with something…
big deal killer…..most of it raving on about yerself
isnt egomania a funny thing…?
i was out at tims studio lassanite
re-hursing agonydead’ner
when i was rolling a joint on top of an old music rag
theres liam gallagher…jesus christ….
he stands there with his hands behind his back
singing like a slightly simple boy doing the school anthem
the lyrics are mostly sing-song bilge he didnt even write
his voice is a real one trick pony
he invests the songs with no emotion other than a sneer
(but how could you really…i suppose…?)
and when he does write a song…….
its that one called little james which is so maudlin n twee
that if winnie the pooh sang it to piglet he’d vomit…
and yet this is a tough guy…
and he comes up with
“so play with your toys…though they make noise”
the cleverest thing about liam
is that he refused to sing that absolute stinker
dont look back in anger
gee what an original title….
stick dont in front of another title..et voila
dont catcher in the rye
dont sparkle in the rain , little james
dont get back
dont midsummers night dream
dont stand on the shoulders of midgets
anyway
that bit about telling sally to wait
makes me cringe and want to be anything but a songwriter
because i wonder if my songs ever revile people
in their sheer mediocrity
the way that particular turkey does me
yet
it sold bazillions
its a show stopper
noelle unwraps it triumphantly each night
right near the end
and people go nuts n singalong
and i must be going crazy
its goddamned so awful
its so mundane
its so meaningless in its realest sense
it means nothing
its like mass hypnosis
please someone out there concur with this…?!
anyway in said mag
liam says stuff like
the whole worlds jealous of me…they should be…”
ok in some ways its true…
we do envy your money
and we do envy your success maybe
i certainly envy the clever way you have parlayed
a very small modicum of talent into a stadium sized career
but there you go
a zillion people will eat at mcdonalds tonight
but my fave little veg place closed down….
its the philistine factor
on the other hand
it is perfectly likely
that i could echo liams arrogant words
about myself in some stupid rant
(remember the best songwriter in australia? ha ha)
and well us egotists n egoists
we forgive it in ourselves
but i think liam is not quite right that people are jealous of him
if you asked people who they would rather be
how many would say liam gallagher
youd pick someone with money AND intelligence, wouldnt you..?
like dylan or sir paul
or i dunno
insert someone with money n intelligence here..
dont put me because i have neither
its terrible
but i hate so much music
i always have
i used to hate credence clearwater at school
but i dont mind em now
i used to hate slade
i never really liked that yobbo thing that much
but all the kids at school loved em
i didnt like the blues or country
i didnt like heavy or west coast
i didnt like much prog or folk
im a picky finicky bloke
i dont really like my own stuff that much really
i’m disappointed sometimes it isnt any better
but no one it seems
is on all the time…
i saw” i’m not there” with our cate as bob
and
i’d recommend it to any dylan fan
kinda explores some similar avenues as this blog actually
in another kinda way though
you should see it..
last night rehearsing with stellar crew
ricki rene maymi on guitar
maymi is master of all instruments and jack of none
he is bringing painkiller guitar parts alive
on his gibb-sun 13 string nipple red guitar
joining him
is the man
with the best hair in rock music
scott von ryper from the black ryder
whose jet black locks thickness n sheen
would be the envy of any rocker extant
hes playing twelve string acoustico plus
on keys n radiotronics william bowden
a true master of time n space
who also masters records
on drums timbo powles
who kneads no intro-ductions
simon polinski will mix us on the nite
oh do please come if you can
cos this is painkillers first last n only show prob’ly ever
so pawn your grannies silverware to get there
it will be a good night
10 sept somewhere in sydney

    Arrgh!..I can't believe you wasted 50 lines of your precious blog on bloody Liam&Noel!!! 🙂
    Don't worry sk, we understand about turning off the anons, abuse is crap, I've had my fair share on this thing haven't I????? (nothing like you have of course). I hope the amount of comments doesnt always put you off either sk, hopefully you write here everyday because you feel you want to, not because you feel you have too, you know there's hundreds'n'hundreds of people reading and loving your blog, but not writing to you, thatsa all.
    Too bad both my yiayia's aren't around anymore, I'd be there in a heartbeat to see Painkiller live… will it be filmed or sumthink?
    Keep on keeping on sk,
    love awlays,

    good morning sk – grey mood day in sydney it seems – i’ll leave all the likely fawning comments to those that will likely follow in regards to who they would really want to be, etc but thought i should mention dream a life featuring patti smith – saw it last weekend and throughout the film it occurred to me that the bohemiam in her has impressively maintained her integrity throughout her now blossoming ‘career’ – reminding me of said author of this blog especially when one-degree-of-separation jay dee daugherty gets a mention – great woman, great film, great inspiration – liam who?

    “are there any other killers out there
    knocking out this shemozzle EVERY day…?”
    i keep a blog. while i don’t knock it out every day, i do keep one, as time and desire allows.

    “isnt egomania a funny thing…? “
    it’s NOT egomania. it’s you. it’s your life. it’s your thoughts. there’s nothing selfish about any of it. i don’t see my own blog as “egomania”~~instead, i think of it as a personal journal of my life’s goings-on. i use it to vent. i use it to think. i use it to clear out the mental clutter.

    and i’m sure everyone who keeps a journal or blog does it for the same reasons. and i’ve made some good friends through my blog. 🙂

    have a good day, steve.

    lotza love……

    “insert someone with money n intelligence here”

    how about “our cate”?

    agree with you about “don’t look back in anger”

    apart from ‘don’t…’ that song title has the double ignominy of tagging ‘…in anger’ onto the end of the name of an existing (and, of course, vastly superior) song…

    Gee I missed all the drama, typical, too busy working in real life dramas of exploitation and abuse to watch SK-TV.

    I appreciate you have to protect your blog, but there is more to your story. Just about every time I have made a comment on this blog, I have been abused by your much more loyal fans. Are they stalking me? I’ve even been to Church shows and been abused by them, so I don’t go anymore. I’ve certainly felt considerable regret about buying Church records in the past due to the abuse I have received from your especially loyal possessive fans. We once went to see Church in Sydney in the late 80s and some chick who was with the band (she said so) abused us before we’d heard a single note, nasty words wrapped in a delicious accent but still abuse. We left, never been back to a Sydney gig.

    It would be better all round if you find out who your trouble is really coming from and deal with it instead of the false accusations against your innocent but clearly not as loyal fans. False accusations are also abuse, along with exploitation, where I come from. Is every anon. to be attacked? We’re just the nutters who want to buy your records, so lay off us.

    That nonsense too, about getting what we give is silly nonsense, and not true, you are egotistical but not a typical abuser, that would show up in your lyrics and poetry, and people like me would dump your work altogether.

    Abuse is however a normal part of post-modern English societies, it’s a product of the protestant work ethic combined with ambition and other things. Convict Australia is renown for it. White Australia exists on its ability to abuse and be nice about it.

    To abuse, one must first have power over the abused, and no brains to conduct power. Abuse is just a power game by dickballs. I’d say from my experience with abusers, that you will know the source of your troubles, quite well. Stalkers and abusers require the intimate details of their victims’ lives in order to exercise their power over them, they are hunting, like predators.

    I’ve had stalkers, usually blokes who wanna be rock stars, and we don’t ignore them, that doesn’t work, best thing to do is confront them, take away their power, that works everytime.

    I do like some performers that millions vehemently loathe such as Boston, Macca, Howard Jones, Morrissey,KD Lang, Joan Jett and even Chrissie Hynde. I do know that I’m implacably on the mark with The Church and my three favorite guitarists. SK and JB are in a class of their own. And their not millionairies and that makes me Angry! JB might be one barely.

    Ah, TTB – there’s much worse than Gallagher Bros, though Noel has penned a few good tunes. I was riding with some others to the misty mountains yesterday (the price of petrol is precious these days) and hadda listen to Bon Giovi’s awful “Slippery When Wet” on their car stereo, mournfully regretting not bringing me iPod and earphones…….aargh! Gallaghers would have at least been tolerable over that tripe. Then some of the most gawdawful lyrics of some unknown folk duo that I’d never heard of (have read better lyrics from high schoolers that that crapola), anyway……..ya have the intelligence, the talent, the lyrical turn (god knows) and the voice – wish you had the financial reward that should have come with it. There seems to be no rhyme or reason sometimes to the “success” aspect; it baffles me. Restaurants too; I know what you mean – my favourite Thai place closed….damn. Basil rolls that were virtually hallucinogenic in flavour.

    If I could fly to Sydney, I’d be there 10 Sept to personally extend birthday wishes, but not this year, unfortunately.

    Steve, I've been away from your blog for a while – my apologies but my life imploded this year and it's been hell. I have failed to keep up with many things during all of this.

    Funny to read your words about both the politics & the longevity/breadth of your blog – I was just on a roadtrip this weekend and was thinking to myself how cool it was that you were able to churn out such good stuff day after day and keep it up. Not many can do that.

    Steven-

    Random thoughts –

    Why don’t you give yourself some time off or something? (Readers of TB start throwing things at Denise). I really don’t know how you write this blog every.single.day. I’ve had writer’s block for a decade I swear. How you crank this stuff out each day is totally beyond me.

    However, I am about to eat and yet now I want to vomit as you’ve written far too much about those vile Gallagher cretins. I not only hate their music, and don’t want to be Noel (even with his money), I wish they would both spontaneously combust. They are taking up space and using up oxygen. My hatred goes back over ten years, born and bred after reading some vile, vile, VILE comments Noel made in the paper and you just have to pray Karma kicks his ass eventually.Or anybody really, I’ll take anybody kicking his ass at this point.

    “13 string nipple red guitar” – gotta loved that one…it really painted an interesting picture for me.

    Love to come to the show, stuck in my life here in L.A. Will we never see you again? I passed the club you played two years ago in Hollywood last night. It made me sad. I said “Oh there’s where the Church played.” I try not to go to Hollywood too much as life seems bleak enough to me lately.

    But ah, memories…selling your prints and cards and folding T-shirts with Mr. Happy, MWP, – oh hell, I can see why you can’t ramp up that kind of tour again. It was a lot of work and that was just setting up the merch! LOL 😉

    Luckily I’ve never been abused by another Church fan but I’ve got a very angry cat who tends to pee on my favourite things if I don’t clean out her litter box every hour on the hour.

    Life’s hard. I don’t expect it to get any easier. Painkiller can’t come soon enough. 🙂

    What DO you want for your b-day, pray tell?
    Love,
    denise

    Never like Oasis much, primarily due to Liam Gallagher. I absolutely loathe him. He’s a complete idiot. Unintelligent. Embarrasing. Sometimes Noel comes up with a very nice tune and sings lead vocals on it, though. He should’ve been a solo artist. But then, who cares about Oasis? They may be loaded, but their music means NOTHING compared to The Church.

    i was in Ireland in 1994, and there was this whole huge embarrassing Blur vs. Oasis thing going on in the press, while on the bus radio nothing else than 4 Non Good’s “Screaming Yawning Howling Yodelling Song” was playing, sometimes in exchange with a lovely Christie Moore song. So that was Ireland. Then, in a Dublin record store, there was this flashy snappy looking CD I couldnt afford, a great cover, song titles. I was surprised about the line up, the Church Rump Parliament. 1994 was also dominated by a plethora of atrociously boring women with airy voices, acoustic guitars and definitely unsnappy names you couldnt remember. Paula Cole. Sarah McLachlan. You could generate some more with a Boring Singer Chick Name generator – Lisa O’Donnell, Mary Williams…etc. They were all the same and awful. Sometime Anywhere came as a colourful explosive surprise then.

    oh, and:

    don’t like: Foreigner, ACDC, CCR, Queen, Queen, and Queen. Only band that makes me physically ill after a few seconds. Unifies all that is bad.

    Thomas Thomsen, Denmark | 25 August 2008 at 8:09 am #

    Couldn’t agree more. Always hated Queen. One of those way overrated bands. So bombastic, overblown and totally over the top. I quite like the first Foreigner album, though it’s not usually my type of music.
    And I must say that I do have a soft spot for Creedence Clearwater Revival. I mean, what’s not to like? They were responsible for some very soulful and passionate songs.

    are there any other killers out there
    knocking out this shemozzle EVERY day…?

    No, there really aren’t. This is the only blog I read every day, and I’ve been here from the beginning. Unfortunately, not only am I unable to come up with a blog post of my own every day (not even close), but I can’t come up with a comment every day. And the worst thing is often your most arresting blogs are the ones that render me unable to come up with anything that doesn’t seem really trite. So if I don’t comment, you can just assume I’m bowled over. 😉

    I’ve never thought requiring a Blogger account to leave comments is particularly onerous, but I know you prefer keeping the comments completely open, so I do feel sad when you have to restrict them. But since doing so stops your stalker cold, it seems like a very small price to pay. You do what you have to to protect yourself and your family.

    I’ve never gotten the appeal of Oasis. They are just kind of meh to me. Luckily, I’m self employed and pretty anti-social, and I rarely have to listen to what anyone else likes, so I never hear them (or a slew of other music I think sucks). Works for me. 😀

    I would so come to the Painkiller gig if I only could. Sigh.

    …well, i know the gallagher brothers are dicks but there is the odd song of theirs that is ok…what really gets up/on my goat is the atrocious ‘i kissed a girl’ that my other half likes at the moment, some chick bellowing away about how she likes the flavour of cherry chap-stick, i know what i’d like to tell her to do with her friggin’ chap-stick…
    god, there’s some shit music around and the hell of it is is that it sells a shitload to people who wouldn’t know a decent song if it came up and bit them on the ass…i should get your painkiller t shirt and cd any day now, goody!

    persephone2u | 25 August 2008 at 11:16 am #

    Hellbound Heart: I almost dropped my laptop from laughing at your comment about the cherry chapstick! God, I hate that song too!!

    I had to google Scott Von Ryper to see who he is/what he looks like and must say that although he may be good at the 12 stringy, my new hubby has the best hair in rock as it’s deepest starry night jet black au naturel without the dye and naturally curly as well. No one can compete with Mediterraneans when it comes to perfect hair.

    I saw Oasis back in ’94 in a tiny club in Seattle and the one thing that Liam has is amazing stage presence which cannot be denied. But anything was better to me than what was going on in Seattle at the time. I loathed grunge with an explosive passion and the entire needle-drenched scene (bathrooms littered with hypodermic needles all around toilet seats is not sexy) which was based on heavy metal (Soundgarden and Alice in Chains were nothing but glorified hard rock bands masquerading as grungers). Believe me, in a climate like that, even Britpop starts to look attractive after a while! But I rejected Grunge and Britpop of course, although Jarvis Cocker is always entertaining to me and a lovely guy…

    That comment is rather lovely, teacher Dave. Nice to see you here again. I can’t thank you enough for teaching me English and kindly introducing this gorgeous blog to me, will eternally be my most precious one I guess.

    Mr.K, I deleted yesterday’s comments because:

    First one, I suppose Kathy your lovely twin sister didnt like you eat too many and All Kinds of chocolate bar. As I said, it’s not very healthy, fresh fruits are much better. But since it seemed not so very friendly, I deleted it.

    Second, although I like your yesterday’s post Very much, considering someone might wouldnt like me saying that, for instance, who said it was spooky, I deleted it. However, I’d like to declare it again loudly, it was a Fantastic reading and I Love it to death!

    Third comment, I misspelled a word “child(l)ishly”, so I childisly and pathetically deleted it.

    That’s all. Good night.

    Those warring siblings look and act like neanderthals but Noel’s yobbo comments do sometimes crack me up when he’s taking the mickey.

    Dont Look Back In Anger – the story is that he wrote it about Liam, to piss him off, so I find the whole song pretty funny, if you look at it THAT way. It does have that feel of a drunken footy club song, where everyone’s got their arms around each other, swaying side to side and singin’ at the top of their voices.

    I hate that infernal song Eagle Rock, and, the Mentals had a hit with Live It Up (what on earth were they thinking?)…some of the most annoying lyrics ever to hit the airwaves imo. I would rather listen to Wonderwall anyday than those two. I reckon you and the guys could do a killer pisstake of Oasis 🙂

    restaurant mark | 25 August 2008 at 2:19 pm #

    well, i guess i’ll pipe in…it’s always been a mixed bag for me with oasis. personally noel could sing all the time and that would be fine…doesn’t really have to have his brother. liam pretty much relies on his raspy snarl and that’s it. he’s not tough though steve…just gakked out enough on blow to think he’s tough. hear noel’s cleaned up though…into being a dad. musically on every oasis album there’s songs that i like a lot and ones that i go, well that’s just like every other song they ever did. lyrically, yeah he keeps it pretty simple…some good lines, some…well, knew that was coming. but i have no problem with simple as long as it’s heart felt. love brian jonestown massacre, but there’s a lot of simple lyrics there…he’s feeling it though. i guess all it really comes down too is does it connect, relate, and say something to ya…whether it be simple or deeper. i mean, not to be kissing up or anything, but i feel you’re definately better than most…if not the best. i’d put the lyrics for day 5 up against anybody’s lyrics.

    as far as the restaurant reference…yeah, the mediocre mexican chain here…always packed…the real deal, family owned, our favorite, best food, small place…just closed…family moved back to mexico…no accounting for bad taste huh???

    if i get a plane ticket to sydney for my b-day sept. 5th i’ll be there…i wish, i wish

    I try and get to Sam's blog every few days, in fact there's at least half-a-dozen blogs I like to visit on an almost daily basis. It started with ttb but now my blog pallete has widened somewhat. There are very positive aspects to the blog world, I love communication, people, communicating with people, is there anything wrong with that?? As Veleska says there are good friends to be made this way!

    If you can do this every day, you have the time, why not!

    yeah I thought Cate was extraordinary in the dylan film, …she had the blonde on blonde look & attitude down to a curl!

    …any locals hopping along on 10 Sept? i'll probably go on my lonesome so if anyone wants to hook up, or just say hello, that'll be swell! 🙂

    Keep in mind the British rags Q, New Musical Express and Mojo have always tried to hype bands like Oasis, Blur, Suede, James, Pulp and Franz Ferdinand and others to be the next Beatles, especially Oasis. The bands never meet expectations but they make money from all the hype.

    I was sad to read that Ms. Thatcher is losing her memory. I hope she recognizes Mr. Cameron.

    I disagree with you on oasis..i think you give them too much credit…..liam sounds like a cat coughing on a hairball the worst sound i’ve ever heard…sounds like he’s jacking himself off..they make me puke.

    on the positive side of things…nice to see you topped 12 comments today!

    Thats funny Tim. The bottom line SK is that its now hard to imagine LBTTB (Life Before The Time Being). I read you, Sam and MWP when he writes,and when I get time Capt Mission & S Cummings. Thats all i need and all i can keep up with but i always make time for you even if i get behind xxx

    my “blowasis” two cents~~liam’s voice whines and he couldn’t carry a tune in a paper bag.

    and i remember when blowasis first appeared, all the critics were hailing them as the next beatles.

    **pfffttt** as if.
