Moo


You know what? I feel like a big bloody steak for dinner.

She dreams in colour, she dreams in red


I was staring at the sun of my pc screen when I heard myself singing 'she dreams in colour, she dreams in red' and I thought – yep, that's one of my fave songs. So for ur listening pleasure here's a random list of some favourite songs. Its the usual suspects as you would expect.

Better Man                                Pearl Jam
Rocking Chair                            Oasis
Wonderwall                               Oasis
The Fly                                     U2
Country Feedback                     REM
Lightning Crashes                      Live
Losing my Religion                     REM
Where did you sleep last night? Nirvana
The best thing about them all is they have cool guitar chords amd changes - all fairly easy to play along to guitar karoke style. Except the Fly. I'll leave the fiddly bits to The Edge.....

Note: If you disagree with this most perfect of lists, I will come and trash your house, Talking Heads style.

Short and Sweet


South Park – funny, funny but get over it. What's next on the 'lets offend people agenda' ? Paris Hilton?  

Woeful Windies -  WTF? We nearly lost! Go Lucas!

Shane Bond – The true lord and saviour. If any one takes the piss out of him I'll burn down an embassy.

I got big balls, you got big balls but C4 has the biggest balls of all!


So I've been thinking about this whole South Park and the bloody mary issue. At first I thought why the fuss about a drink? But then the penny dropped, it is Virgin in a Condom Pt II but without Graeme Capill causing a fuss. Sounds like South Park is back to its best.

 

He's been pretty quiet lately has Mr Capill. Maybe his jaw is still sore. NE ways back 2  South Park – 'Oh my god look, censorship coming straight for us!' Pass the sanitary pad, I say, so I can shove it down your pious throat.

 

I applaud TV 4 for being forward this whole bloody issue to our screens early.

 

It's the whole Voltaire thing here really – those who don't want the bloody mary show to screen can say what they like and I'm cool with that. They should not watch it. Its when some one demands the removal of the show from the program we get irked – cos that's not free speech, that's censorship. (Like wise don't buy the paper if it's cartoon offends)

 

I know all this has sprung up in light of Mohammed getting himself in the papers and so there's a story here that the MSM et al is keen on - I'm actually surprised I haven't seen that guy from the Soc iety For Promotion Of Community Standards that tries to ban every filthy movie that comes town chiming in. He may have. I'm chiming it and that too is free speech …

 

It was suggested on the Rock radio this am what if it was our local show Bro Town that did such a thing? Well Bro Town never would have dared – its not that kind of show (and the mum's of the show writers would have given them the jandal). But if it was a kiwi show depciting a bloody mary would it be screened at all?? I suspect that C4 would be tempted to do so. They could blame it on Jeff da maori. TV3 would not risk it. Wayyyy too much advertising at stake.  It would be too close to home for most Kiwis. It would be like Judy Bailey stripping on Holmes or something.
 
In short, good on ya C4 for having some balls.
 

Hail Mary!

It's funny how


Its funny how life goes from being a beach to being a bitch, innit?

And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee


And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee ...

Things we have Pulp Fiction to thank for:

Making Mayonnaise/Aololi become very popular as a bar snack

We can use cool lines like "are we cool?" and "Zed's dead, baby; Zed's dead!"

The resurrection of John Travolta (because without Swordfish we may never have seen Halle's Comets)

We all understand the metric system a little better. Royale with Cheese?

The countless lives saved through giving a shot of adrenaline through someone's sternum which has been carefully defined using a magic marker to create a magic mark.

When your priest mentions Ezekiel 25:17, you know exactly what he means:



Things we have Pulp Fiction to blame thank for:

Samuel L Jackson turning up as Mace Windu in Star Wars.

Whatever Trevor


Whatever happened to this blog ?
Whatever happened to Pacifier?
Whatever happened to John Hawkesby?
Whatever happened to Big Ted?
Whatever happened to Debbie who did Dallas?
Whatever happened to Charles who was in Charge?
Whatever happened to your money for nothing and your chicks for free?

What would Jake the Muss think of this?


Well, while one night out wearing a dress, Lee Tamahori, of Once Were Warriors directorial, fame has been caught doing a George Micheal of sorts  on the Santa Monica Boulevard. I guess we now know why he did the xXx movie sequel!  

 
I checked out the IMDB and found this pearler of a quote from Lee "Sex should not be in the movies and should be in the home, and violence should be in the movies and not in the home."   
 
Speaking of Santa Monica,  my other big question is what ever happened to Everclear?
 
 

Every Atom Draws Great Big Electrons


So like this is probably a you-had-to-be-there story but whatever....

 

I went to the music store the other day to get me some strings for my faithful Takamine guitar. I walk in and say to the hippy looking dude 'Hey dude, gimme some Martin Strings , low gauge please

 

'Sure dude, you want bronze or phosphorous?

 

Bluffing I say, 'I think I'll stick with the phosphorous, they give a rich tone

 

Hippy enthusiastically replies, 'Oh yeah man that's soooo true, these ones are great for the mids, you get great levels man!!!!!

 

The Jerry Garcia look-a-like seemed to think I know what I'm talking about and continues with an endless discourse about sonic principles and tonal qualities or something. I figured he'd smoked at least a kilo for lunch so I interupt. 

 

'Ah dude, I have no idea what you're talking about

 

'Oh? Really? These strings are sweet.
 
-
 
Got the strings home, chucked 'em on. Played gat for two minutes and broke the high E. It's a cruel world.

 

 

Fight Against Ridiculous Taxes


Well I'm not an environmental scientist or Bjorn Lomborg so I'm at least as qualified as Nondoris and the Firestarter (twisted firestarter) to claim once and for all Kyoto is shite and here's another reason for getting rid of it. Of course, having more ozone may actually trap in the hot air that politicians world wide expel but that's a risk we'll have to take.
