its a bit unfortunate

tonight i saw an amazing show (check out brilliant fabulous links below or above or whatever). And even a personal photo of ..........wait for it..................................................DENNis Jesus hopper yay!but the damper on the evening was a great friend of mine from uni - Micheal G - whom which i feel an affinity because of his temprement and youth.

His solo show was at Kozminsky Art Gallery -, sadly, a highly commercial upmarket gallery above a jewelery store. We (Androniki and myself - dressed in our own natural oils and smells and jeans ans tshirts) entered our personal friends show through the front door like everyone else. tO be confronted by a security/bouncer guard with a doorlist A FUCKING EXHIBITION!! and had to explain that we were old time uni friends and have had a show with micheal ourselves, let alone actually know who he is AND have had on and off sunny wars (who's got the most awsome cheapest sunnies day to day wars 4 3 years).

And i became a little sad, when i saw that half of his work i had seen before and half of it was Joy Hesteresk/Brett whitleesk nudes and it was a sell out show. And don't get me wrong, i love micheal. he's a stallion and a fucking brilliant painter. BUT

how can you produce the same stuff (good stuff usually, granted) for THREE WHOLE FUCKING YEARS!! and still become famous by the time you're 20? well - the answer is - i don't know I DON'T KNOW!!


anyway - Check it out - Ari Marcopoulos from the shiny bee of the USA (he's in the Nieves program as well and you can buy his stuff and things, whatever) (there must be other links but i'm tired and can't be bothered, you should clearly wikepidia or google it.

well.............surprised? anyone?

a little perspective can ease the .........pain?

hey. ok this is a post of text. because everyone in our little blogging circle (granted - we are not as cool as the fitzroy blogging circle but we seem to bash it out ok) seems to be trying their hand at deep diaretical thoughts on life. Their lives, or someone elses or a song lyric, i don't know. i don't mind it. and i love my little blogging circle, and i love my friends but i want funnyness and cool exchanges of art and ideas and stuff and things that make me laugh......i've almost, almost decided to leave the building which we call cyberspace like our dear departed ZORGON. but then i realised maybe i just need to join in and release the sphincter that is my brain (at the moment-not always i'm, actually quite bright).

i've stayed off this band wagon, but now. Yes surprise and jaws drop. i hAVE HAD A REALLY SHITTY DAY/WEEK/possibly even month and i'm really tired and broke, fell asleep and woke up angry...........thats all.

over and out.

All we want is a headrush
All we want is to get out of our skin for a while
We have nothing to loose because we don't have anything
Anything we want anywayWe used to hate people
Now we just make fun of themIt's more effective that way
We don't liveWe just scratch on day to day
With nothing but matchbooks andSarcasm in our pockets
And all we are waiting forIs for something worth waiting for
Let's admit America gets the celebrities we deserve
Let's stop saying "Don't quote me"Because if no one quotes you
You probably haven't said a thing worth saying
We need something to kill the pain of all that nothing inside
We all just want to die a little bit
We fear that pop-culture
Is the only culture we're ever going to have
We want to stop reading magazines
Stop watching TV
Stop caring about Hollywood
But we're addicted to the things we hate
We don't run Washington and no one really does
Ask not what you can do for your country
Ask what your country did to you
The only reason you're still alive is because someone has decided to let you live
We owe so much money we're not broke we're broken
We're so poor we can't even pay attention
So what do you wantYou want to be famous and rich and happy
But you're terrified you have nothing to offer this world
Nothing to say and no way to say it
But you can say it in three languages
You are more than the sum of what you consume
Desire is not an occupation
You are alternately thrilled and desperate
Skyhigh and fucked
Let's stop praying for someone
To save us and start saving ourselves
Let's stop this and start overLet's go out - Let's keep going
This is your life - This is your fucking life
We need something to kill the pain of all that nothing inside
Quit whining you haven't doneAnything wrong because frankly
You haven't done much of anything
Someone's writing down your mistakes
Someone's documenting your downfall

i never would have guessed

From California to Melbourne via England, Naomi has seen the world, but she still calls Australia home. Born in California, USA, Naomi Robson first set foot on Australian soil as a three-year-old.

a story of my fame and shame with government benifits "some people just do not want to work '

Anthony Oliver and Jodie Riley are unemployed but were still willing to drive six and a half hours on bus on little more than a chance of a job.

i was on tv on the 2oth of march. i didn't actually know this (because i don't cater to fucking bullshit like today tonight) but was greeted when i went to aimee's opening with "hey hey maara howz your children going?"

"what the fuck?" said i.

"yeah - saw you on the telly, ,a current affair or something...oh know, thats right today tonight"

" oh really?"

so what had happened (and if you know me well i have tolld you this story - the realstory - already) i was at centerlink some two weeks ago handing in my dole form when we were ambushed (literally) BY THREE very flash looking 20 something year oolds in suits holding camera gear -

camera crew - "hey we're from channel 7 and have a bus" ' points to a shady looking bus across the road - "and want 12 lucky job seekers to hop on tomorrow morning and we'll take you to mildura where there is work waiting!!!!"

they failed to mention that the work was grape picking and that its seasonal.

me - "oh, ok then, so i'll just drop everything and leave tomorrow morning then and nevermind my rent and bills and dog and children. Can i take my children? I'm on the dole and can't afford a babysitter".

camera crew - "you'll have to figure something out yourself"

anyway, , we were all very pissed off, completely degraded and then cat called when we had finished handing in our forms.

THEN THEY HAD THE AUDACITY TO AIR ME ON TV WITH THE STORY - With more than 500,000 Australians unemployed there are still plenty of job vacancies, so we attempted an experiment to find people some jobs.



so if anyone did see that and are wondering where these mystical kids have been hiding all this time and why noone ever saw me preggas - its ok. i was role playing.

i wanted to be a coopers or a fine red wine

You Are Olde English

Drinking is more than a hobby for you. It's your favorite drug.
When you drink, you want to get wasted. As quickly and cheaply as possible.
Looking back on your best times drinking... well, you don't remember them at all.
You may be a few brain cells short, but you still can chug a 40!

so apparently.....................HUKSADGAKU

it appears we have weevILS...on our ceiling. i didn't notice them until i got an email from my housy, which said -

"There are small wormlike creatures on the ceilings of the living room and kitchen. I just noticed them now but there was a similar incident when Clare stayed last week. She said they weren’t maggots or weevils. Simeon helped by admitting that he had noticed them, promptly forgot and that he thought they were caterpillars. Clare removed them with the broom and caught them in a saucepan lid and then they went to a better place.

What are these creatures? Where are they coming from? How do we annihilate them? Any thoughts, oh ingenious one?"

and we thought about it and googled it in various forms until we found the a image above which happens to bear a distinct similarity to our very own creatures on the ceiling of our living room.

its pretty gross. and if anyone has any know where to post.......................................

THIS is the bday beer i bought for my housemate today - and yes you can scratch off her bikini. i think it's from belgium.

Respect Beer.

"Respect Beer" has been our personal tag, motto, and important part of the BeerAdvocate foundation for years now. While it means a lot of things to us, we've come to realize that it's essential for everyone to drink responsibly if we hope to raise beer's perception amongst the masses, and better our own levels of appreciation for this awesome social lubricant that we all love.

Appreciate What You're Drinking.
    Don't just drink the beer. Note the beer's appearance, how it smells and tastes. Savor each beer as if it's your last and you'll be that much closer to beerdom. And despite what the beer impaired think, talking to others about what you're experiencing and taking notes is not being a geek. It can be fun and, at the same time, aids in training your palate and beer vocabulary.
Drink Better. Drink Less.
    Drink for flavor, not for impact, and always practice moderation when drinking. Get to know your limits, and don't exceed them. There's plenty of beer to be had, with plenty of time, so pace yourself. If you feel that moment of absolute cheer, take a break, grab a water and some food.

    Beer Fest Tips:
    Respect festival pour rules. At our fests we now have a 2oz pour per individual tasting limit - that's monitored. It's Massachusetts State Law, and allows you to enjoy more beer responsibly.

    And providing you eat and drink water before and throughout the fest, we recommend no more than 8 - 2oz beer tastings per hour (one US pint). This may vary based on the individual.
Drink Water.
    Hydrate! Drink plenty of water. It helps to detoxify and counteracts the alcohol stripping water from your system. Water is your friend.

    Beer Fest Tips:
    Any proper beer fest will have water on hand. At our fests, we sell water for $1 a bottle. We recommend drinking a bottle of water every hour or two.
Eat When You Drink.
    Eating replenishes the system, slows down your rate of consumption, and helps to absorb alcohol so you don't find yourself inebriated after a few beers. However, though eating will slow the absorption of alcohol, it won't necessarily stop its impact.

    Beer Fest Tips:
    We recommend eating before or during the fest. Please visit our food vendors for some tasty eats to pair with you beer. Your entire fest experience will be enhanced if you eat!
