Words of Wisdom

"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

(FIVE)
Today is officially day 5 of the "War" so to celebrate I thought I'd share 5 random thoughts I've had in the last 12 hours.

1. Apparently "Bringing Democracy" is actually a military command ... something similar to "engage" or "fire".

2. Saddam Hussein kills people in Iraq. George W. Bush kills people in Iraq.

Maybe these guys have more in common than they care to admit, perhaps they should get together and "do lunch". I'm sure they'd have a nice discussion on the most inhumane way to kill someone .... Saddam might even learn a thing or two.

3. Anti-war protesters and their peace demonstrations don't appear to be influencing the Government any, but perhaps they're pissing off the wrong people. Holding up peak-hour traffic, while waving banners and babies is not really ensuring their message is reaching the desired audience. But I can see how we are likely to bear witness to mass carnage on the streets of our major cities as road-rage begins it's own campaign of "shock and awe".

Don't get me wrong ... I'm certainly anti-war, but I kind of think these protesters are wasting their time. Wouldn't their efforts be put to better use by getting on the backs of individual politicians ... especially federal Liberal, scum-sucking, politicians. Nothing gets a pollies attention more than a whole load of people writing to tell them that their job is on the line come election day - money talks, as they say.

So, I say ... if you want to protest against the Government's decision on the war in Iraq ... select the Liberal fascist who resides closest to you and write him/her a detailed letter about why you won't be voting for his/her sorry arse at the next election (even lie if you have to and say that you were actually going to vote for him/her, but now you couldn't possible do so).

You could say something like, "you are supposed to be working for ME, pal! How about getting off your fat arse and doing something to represent ME! I have made a mental note to remember your name, not because of the stellar job you are doing to represent my voice in Canberra, but so when election day rolls around ... my vote will be cast towards anyone that's not YOU!" ... of course it's an individual thing ... feel free to steal my words, but I imagine each protestor has their own idea of what to say.

4. I can't help but think that when Bush and his bullyboys are done with their humanitarian push to liberate Iraq, and democracy arrives at it's destination, Baghdad could be a damn fine place to live.

I'm sure many of those Americans who can actually recall what it's like to live in a democratic country will be eager to relocate to the thriving democratic land of Iraq that Bush is promising to provide. Oh, what progressive times we live in!

5. So ... how about those Aussie cricketers ah! I'm officially allowed to boast today ... now they've actually won the World Cup (was there ever any doubt?) but ummm, I don't really feel like boasting at the moment. However, I do reserve the right to come back here at a latter date and exercise my rights, as an Australian, to sound off about how fabulously superior the Aussie team is, and how every other team in the world is just shit!

Oh, and here's a piece of Michael Moore's glorious acceptance speech from the Oscars.
"... We live in the time where we have fictitious election results that elects a fictitious president. We live in a time where we have a man sending us to war for fictitious reasons. Whether it's the fictition of duct tape or fictition of orange alerts we are against this war, Mr. Bush. Shame on you, Mr. Bush, shame on you. And any time you got the Pope and the Dixie Chicks against you, your time is up."

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
