"The spirit is most often free when the body is satiated with pleasure, indeed, sometimes the stars shine more brightly seen from the gutter than from the hilltop"-
W. Somerset Maugham

Classic Songs

Split Screen Sadness...And I don't know where you went when you left me but Says here in the water you must be gone by now I can tell somehow One hand on the trigger of a telephone Wondering when the call comes Where you say it's alright You got your heart right Maybe I'll sleep inside my coat and Wait on the porch 'til you come back home Oh, right I can't find a flight We share the sadness Split screen sadness Two wrongs make it all alright tonight All you need is love is a lie cause We had love but we still said goodbye Now we're tired, battered fighters And it stings when it's nobody's fault Cause there's nothing to blame at the drop of your name It's only the air you took and the breath you left Maybe I'll sleep inside my coat and Wait on the porch 'til you come back home Oh, right I can't find a flight So I'll check the weather wherever you are Cause I wanna know if you can see the stars tonight It might be my only right We share the sadness Split screen sadness I called Because I just Need to feel you on the line Don't hang up this time And I know it was me who called it over but I still wish you'd fought me 'til your dying day Don't let me get away Cause I can't wait to figure out what's wrong with me So I can say this is the way that I used to be There's no substitute for time Or for the sadness Split screen sadness We share the sadness-John Mayer

------------------ First Cut Is The Deepest...I would have given you all of my heart But there's someone who's torn it apart And he's taken just all that I had But if you want I'll try to love again Baby, I'll try to love again but I know The first cut is the deepest Baby I know the first cut is the deepest But when it comes to being lucky he's cursed When it come to loving me he's worst I still want you by my side Just to help me dry the tears that I've cried And I'm sure going to give you a try And if you want I'll try to love again (tryyy) Baby, I'll try to love again but I know The first cut is the deepest Baby I know the first cut is the deepest But when it comes to being lucky he's cursed When it come to loving me he's worst I still want you by my side Just to help me dry the tears that I've cried But I'm sure gonna give you a try 'Cause if you want I'll try to love again (try to love again) Baby, I'll try to love again but I know The first cut is the deepest Baby I know, the first cut is the deepest When it come to being lucky he's cursed When it come to loving me he's worst The first cut is the deepest baby i know The first cut is the deepest try to love again...-Sheryl Crow

(REMEMBERING THE 80'S)
It's funny (peculiar like) that Georgie boy is so keen to send others off to fight a war, when he declined to serve the great US of A in Vietnam - where was his patriotism then huh? And I see today that the Prime Miniature has announced his willingness to send his own 2 sons off to fight .... one has to wonder what kinda mouth-full he received from the lads after that statement, I expect it was something along the lines of "fuck u, Daddy".
I wonder if those so eager for a war have any idea what war is truly about, if they actually see beyond the war lingo, if they see that real ppl die, children die, children lose parents, parents have to watch their children die before them. I wonder if they grasp the reality of ppl having to live surrounded by the horrific smell of rotting bodies, that innocent ppl are forever tormented by graphic and vile images thrust upon them. I wonder if George, Tony, John and all their little warriors are even slightly struck by guilt, or shame.

These so-called leaders of the democratic world say they want to liberate the poor citizens of Iraq - well I guess if you kill them, it could be viewed as a form of liberation! I can almost hear George now "if we can't free the ppl of Saddam, hell.... we'll free Saddam of the ppl......kill 'em all".

And on another funny (yes, peculiar like) note .... I'm fucking astounded that the only place you'll find any condemnation of Israel's cruel and brutal treatment of the Palestinians, is YES...the bloody Israeli press. It's utterly disgusting, almost unbelievable.


I went to the market again this morning ...had a leisurely browse, but seems Cheese Guy wasn't quite as enticing as I first thought. Nice to gaze at, if u like wog! I did however buy fresh ingredients for tonight's bruschetta. I was confronted by JJ this morning, wielding a bottle of (wait for it) bruschetta topping, yes ...in a jar, purchased from the supermarket ........ I mean isn't the whole appeal of bruschetta that it's FRESH. And here's JJ, a professional athlete, Mr I've-Got-A-Nutritionist....and he says to me, after I protested about it not being 'fresh' .... he says ....."well, I haven't opened the bottle, it's still fresh". Yes, I know ... I'm staying in his house, and yes I know I shouldn't be making fun of him ....but PLEEEEASE!

Best thing about today, I finally got to try Callebaut Chocolate. This sumptuous Belgian creation is the chocolate that is used by all the cookbook authors and great dessert chefs. I have wanted to try it for years, and finally stumbled across it in the markets. I absolutely understand the hype – it is utterly delicious and I couldn't restrain myself from impulsively buying several blocks. At $15 each.

I watched a doco on Def Leppard this morning, well on the making of their "Hysteria" album. It was really nostalgic, and made me realise how totally feminine men of the eighties were. I used to like Def Leppard, until they became very uncool during the 90's, but I didn't actually appreciate their talent, I mean their vocals were just amazing ... very similar in talent and style to Queen. I guess I always assumed their vocals were synthesized, like most of the rock bands during that time. Can u believe that album sold 12 million copies? It went gold in the US in one day after they released "Pour Some Sugar On Me". Unreal. I actually went and bought a copy today .... and while it really has that 80's feel, it's still quite enjoyable.

Added a Nick Drake classic to the blog earlier ... check it out on the left.

Devoted to Viggo
Second Opinion.. The glow inside another red-crossed pelvis will drain when they crush that little bulb. Menstrual minstrels drift in from the weedless garden. The immaculate blue flame from the fake fireplace burns in the corner of my eye. Can't stop staring at nothing. A gloved hand opens the door, and the man enters soothingly, with an air of respect for the dead. Encourages us to look on the bright side. Black pants hide your pain afterwards, and there's a cookie on a napkin and a paper cup of red juice to replace your strength. We drive home without blinking because the sun isn't real .. . -Viggo Mortensen
