what a day
feels like it went on for a year
tis truly a measure of my devo shun
that im even up, writing to you
my kilbeings
my little vege sausages
my lambs
my little bits
just for you

anyhow i have done a lot
a gig no less
with david lane + band
(i sublimate my swollen ego
and just play the basse)
rock legends abound
lucky jim elliot from the cruel sea on drums
amanda brown from the go bes on mando and vio
(robbery with violins)
stevie k from ye olde choich,,,,
3 livin legends
on stage in bondi to a roomful of oblivious euro backpackerss
and the localss who had drifted in to
try to crack on to the euro backpackerss
they just talked and laughed thru laneys set
even tho we were great
i looked around
naiive and hopeful
is captain mish mash here
with one of his exotic friends?
perhaps luxsore
she of the elegant turn o frase
or maybe
or maybe even
transylvanian vlad
who is also a talented writah
and charming
but also prone to a hot slavic temper
or something…
who even told me to get fucked last time…..
(and that, me dahlings,IS fucken heresy)….
but no
there was no one there enjoying this feast of sounds
we were sloppy but goode
i personally made one very awful glaring mistake
early on
a whacking e minor run
when i shoulda been pumping an f
believe me
its just about the worse sounding thing in the book
the whole room slipped sideways
in to negative space (baybee)
for the duration of that howler
dock my fucking pay !
i deserve it
as the brilliantly astute ones here
wood have already guessed
i saw banarnia the moovie
goode things :
(trust me, i know my $%#$%&ing narnia, fiendss)
mr tumnus…yeah pretty goode
the kidss…i liked em
edmund looked like a young i mccullough
that aint a badde thing
i liked the kids
didnae mind aslan
scenery was goode
badde things
all the narnians had ears that looked like the beagle boys
tilda aint jadis
she just aint
the white which didnt have blonde dreadies
she was just….
maybe im just inflewents
by pauline baines excellent illustrations
but she and lewis = sir john tenniel and lewis carroll
hers is the definitive version
the wolvies all spoke in these super horrendous
yankee accents
maugrim the wolf the chief of the secret police
does not have a namerican accent
he just doesnt!!
and he doesnt jive around with the fuckin kiddies
in comic book/rambo/lethal weppon banter
hes much more sophisticated than that
the battle scenes
an attempt to cash in on you know whats
big suck sess
narnian battles were small
like maybe a hundred creatures maxx!
not row after row
of superimposed holly would
stoopid lookin’ idiots
with horns or one eyeball
or whatever
(fill in silly computer narnian here)
why fuck w/ a good storey
look at troy
you just dont get some
bloke to re write homer
or lewis
or j r r r r toke it in
(pipeweed…..go j.r.)
never mind
we still give it a thumbsup
next time
drop the action stuffe
the u.s. accents
(but howie, theaudience loved those freakin wolves)
ok thats enuff
im gonna leave you now
s the k

    S the K, always there and as predictable as an earthquake. Thank you for 20+ years of feeling a part of something that ‘they’ don’t and can’t understand. Unparalled brilliance still and again. You Rule.

    An empire
    A lifestyle
    A question of degree?

    Should the mind be set free?
    Should I glance at these things?
    Should I wonder?

    And they are many
    Fall endlessly
    Serving the multitude of images
    Scrimmaging(but not as they did)
    For things I can’t begin to imagine

    Don’t take me there
    I don’t want to go!

    It isn’t fair
    It isn’t reality!
    It shouldn’t be done!

    A laugh, and another one
    The pain
    The memory

    It didn’t happen to me!

    For it was the lead
    With wit, wisdom and all it’s life stories
    Gracing all ye folk with……

    Tempting the sorts
    Moving about

    Dust here and dust there
    Fragments to all

    This conglomerate
    In all it’s seen glory
    Glowing to thee!
    For the lights shined!

    Unrestrained.(ha ha ha)

    Oh the events!
    (To witness here)

    Those blessed now
    To be in the company
    Solemn they were
    A trick of light
    A vogue

    It was done now.

    Tight clothes
    With blessing from above…….?

    Twasn’t me who cradled the chickens at market
    Twasn’t me who spiddled various great poems
    No, it really wasn’t me

    (I didn’t do that either)

    Twasn’t me who drank from the great fountain
    The one of all sacred knowledge
    Those were the days……he he he

    A city farther from thee
    One of countenance
    One of mystery
    Twas where I dwelled
    To the north
    In my time streams ran well
    Dark covered alliste
    Pretty ladies
    Pretty glasses

    Wine and witches
    Coats, honor, catches!
    Twas thine!


    Kettles th kettles!

    someone said that it is the physicists’ role to say how, and the theologists’ to say why….
    but why should there be a reason why? I mean, our lives and all… do we live in the void of metamorphoses, or perhaps in the void of a purpose?

    Stevie you have to tell us about these gigs before they happen. Won’t do me much good, of course, but could make a lot of your more local fans very happy.

    But thanks for your devotion to your blog fans, it will be rewarded. Plus if you suddenly stop now we’re gonna think you’re dead in a ditch somewhere, so none of that!

    i sure do agree
    insomuch as narnia is concerned
    (& i felt you must be a narniphile,
    what with your ‘slow crack’ ref’s
    to puddleglum et al)…

    american accents?
    jadis with dreads?
    morgrim- i thought his name was fenris ulf?
    ice floes, or video game tie-in?
    peter riding a unicorn?

    disappointing dialogue.
    note to scriptwriters:
    channel clive staples,
    he who died
    the same day as jfk
    and aldous huxley.

    a pity this couldn’t have been made
    before lord o th’rings,
    as you say,
    those prior films had an undue influence
    (those expansive battle scenes, for instance)…
    but then tolkien may have had an undue influence on lewis, mayn’t he?

    one wonders what a prince caspian will be like…

    Ahhh, i didn’t know you was playing else i would have been there front row with my exotik fabulous freak brothers and sisters. Curses! We would have dug a ride on the sk base waves but the magical entity that informs me of such ‘appearences’ seemed to have malfunctioned.

    Now in a series of strange sk blog related coincidences, 1st – the old be bob deluxe coincidence, come on what are the odds?.
    2nd – i go to play my george harrison dvd and at the same moment they are showing it on television.
    3rd – I ‘m reading the sk review of Narnia and thinking, mmm should i go or should i leave it in my imagination where it sits perfectly, when my friend rings to ask if i wanna go see it.
    Random events, Synchronicity, Jungian no -sense or just another cosmic conspiracy.

    Whooz Ron? Man this guy is hogging the comments (and I can’t understand any of ’em). Steve, I agree with you on some points. The kidz were GREAT (especially Lucy). I didn’t see anything wrong with the wolves having American accents (would you have preferred Australian?). Totally disagree on the battle scenes–those were some of the finest special FX I’ve seen yet, didn’t look fake or Hollywooded out to me. I kinda had a problem with Liam Neeson as the lion, should’ve got someone less “famous” cuz you just keep picturing Liam Neeson in “Schindler’s List” etc. Anyways, “Narnia” is a great family film, hope your daughters enjoyed if you took ’em. P.S. Please review “King Kong” next!
