"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

(WHACK IT GOOD)
I must have been living in a cultural wilderness! Up until 12am this morning I'd never heard of google whacking ... shocking I know, but the term, and it's subsequent meaning had completely eluded me.

But now, less than 12 hours after my freak discovery of google whacking I'm totally addicted. It's sucked me in ... and there is no way I can resist its powers. I will never look at google the same way again.

Now, I know, I know .... some of you are sniggering right at this very moment ... assuming that when I say "google whacking" that I'm referring to something crude. And granted, yes ... when you add the word "whacking" to anything (especially something like google) it does bring slightly unsavory images to mind, but I guarantee it has nothing to do with masturbation.

Then again, this is the internet we're talking about, and I'm sure there's someone out there who could relate anything on the internet back to masturbation ... anyhow, enough of such filthy topics.

Ok, so for those of you who haven't a clue what google whacking is, I will explain ... but I hereby declare that I will take no responsibility for any addictions that result from reading the following explanation.

Google whacking is when you put any 2 (correctly spelt) words into a google search and come up with only 1 matching result - a google wack. Sounds ever so simple I hear you say ... well it's not - trust me! But I suppose, for those of you more inclined to use an unnecessary amount of large, technical words in everyday conversation, you'll probably find the whole thing a breeze. (And yes I do mean you, Mr Verbose)

I leisurely entered a few words into the little search box, trying for really bizarre and odd combinations like "jellied Wednesday" which returned over 1300 sites then "pencil transcendental" but when this came up with more than 7000 results I was left little stunned ... yet challenged.

So, I decided I'd have to try for something a little more unusual. I entered "operatic sodomy" which returned a disturbing 250+ results. But I was hooked, I knew then that I couldn't leave the keyboard til I found a google whack ... no bloody search engine was going to get the better of me.

It took me a further 10 minutes, but I did manage to find one ... "ostracized courgette"

http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&q=ostracized+courgette

And I was ever so pleased .... for about 2 minutes, then the satisfaction disappeared and I was hit with an overwhelming urge to begin my google whacking adventure all over again.

So, you can imagine how much sleep I had last night. Is that "get a life" I can hear you all screaming at me now? Well ... go on, you see how long it is before you're heading off on your own google whacking experience. Then, see if you can stop at just one ... see if the thought of finding that one and only site doesn't start to consume you and drive you to spend countless, unproductive hours in front of your puter! I bet you'll never be able to search for anything on google again, without the thought of finding a google whack entering your head. There is no escape.

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
