"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

(WHORE)*
First up, (in the words of Madonna) I'd like to direct your attention to something that needs directing to ..... no, it's not more about the joys of oral sex, it's a blog written by one of the men in my life ... a rather significant man in my life actually ... go check it out

I used to love going to the movies. The smell of the popcorn, the fellow movie-goers, the buzz of the big screen - all very exciting! However, the one dampener of the movie going experience, I must say, is the adverts they whore at the beginning of a film.

There are too many commercials leading up to the main attraction with the commercial to end all commercials, the movie.

Movies today have become synonymous with advertising. Strategic product placements, savvy namedropping by actors and worst of all, blatant sponsorship.

Do advertising execs take the general public for morons? Do they think we cannot see when they are trying to be clever, but really are just looking stupid? It's not hard to guess when Coca Cola is involved in some sort of project. You'll see every second person drinking Coke or Coke-related products... especially if you're Britney Spears and you're sponsored by Pepsi.

Movies are the whores of the entertainment industry and what makes them the dirtiest whores is that it is allegedly all subliminal and non-invasive. I don't know about you, but if you're going to try to use your propaganda on me, be blatant about it, because I might then contemplate giving you the 30 seconds of my life that you don't deserve. Hmm... actually, no I wouldn't. However, by using product placement you're only begging for me to loathe you just a little more than I already do.

For example, the Bond plague. James Bond drove BMW. He drank Smirnoff. And he legendarily wore only Rolex. However, due to some power play and shift in advertising dollars, Bond now whores himself to Aston Martin, binges on Finlandia vodka and sports an Omega watch.

Even an institution like James Bond can't escape the power of the product placement and advertising dollars, and in fact, actually whores itself to the advertising dollars, because let's face it, without all the classy products James and co. use and abuse, Le Institution de James Bond would not have made it past 1980.

I'm staying in Melbourne for the weekend now. I have a "date" tomorrow night, tho it's just me accompanying a friend to a thing. Probably back in Tassie on Sunday night.

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
