Goddamn it, my copy of My Booky Wook isn't here yet.

Are they the singer from the 1990s' real teeth?

In the dark and nasty regions, where nobody goes, stands an ancient castle. Deep within this dank and uninviting place lives Berk ("Hello!"), overworked servant of the thing upstairs ("Berk...feed me!"). But that's nothing, compared to the horrors that lurk beneath the Trap Door, for there is always something down there. In the dark. Waiting to come out!

I've been reciting that to myself every so often, after I realized that I still had it memorized even though I'd forgotten about it for like 10 years or something. It's that and Christian Television adverts, course they're still trotting the same ones out now.

In the jungle one day, in a land far away, the king was collecting his rent, all the animals came, rich or poor, just the same, from wherever the message was sent, but the crocodile green with his temper so mean, said he wasted his money on games, the king said "you'll pay, or in the dungeon you'll stay, eating spinach and burnt toast and brains" the croc said "no, no, not that please" and fell down on his knees, so the kind king forgave him his debt, and sent him away forgiven that day and the croc said he'd never forget. But the crocodile green with his temper so mean, found a monkey to take for a ride, "pay me" he said "or I'll eat you instead and I'll gobble you right up inside". The monkey cried out and his friends gave a shout and the king came running to see. "He's learned nothing today, so take him away, let the poor little monkey go free. Now our father in heaven, through the son that he's given, forgives us our sins and our debts, he expects us to not make a fuss, but like jesus, forgive and forget.

Hmmm, I think in times of turmoil I'd get more comfort from The Trap Door opening.

I googled "you'll pay or in the dungeon you'll stay" out of curiosity and a transcript of a sermon appeared. This might make me a terrible person but it rather amused me that it opened by quoting the ad in its entirety and then went on to talk about September 11th. A quote: "This parable isn’t just talking about kings collecting rent and crocodiles taking monkeys for a ride, it’s talking about forgiving people who fly planes full of people into buildings". The fact remains it is read by a bloke in a khaki safari suit, if memory serves.

I was slightly alarmed to realize that I find Paddy Maguire on Shameless incredibly attractive.

Killers featuring Lou Reed is a bit shit.

OOWWW! Charmer isn't. Cept for the "sold it to the farmer" line, but I can overlook that because screaming along is excellent fun.

I get to see it live in under 2 months. And by then I can go to Melbourne midweek for as many days as I fancy because I won't have a cleaning job to worry about! Giving a months notice on the 28th. After last night having to try and clean remnants of a child's vomit from the carpet of one branch, the end can't come quickly enough. So disgusting. There was a huge patch of it and I had to kneel to scrub away at it while Claremontites wandered past the huge expanse of glass at the front, peering at me. The knees of my jeans got all smelly. It's hard to maintain a smug sense of superiority with vomitty knees.

Holy shit, I'm going to London next year. So excited, so fucking terrified. It's going to be awesome, but I have to pretend it's not happening so I can get back to sleep at 3am when I start to hyperventilate. I really should have gone on exchange in high school or something, haha.

I'm not going to get a second job. I'm going to have fun instead.

I don't need you people, because the Kings are playing Festival Hall!

"Now when are you getting a job?"

I'm going to start looking soon. yep. uh-huh. yep. yeah that's true. I know. yep.


Um, how bout you mind your own business. I already have one. I'll get a second WHEN I FEEL LIKE IT. SO SHUT UP BEFORE I PULL THE PHONE OFF THE WALL AND STOMP ON IT WHILE PRETENDING IT'S YOUR HEAD!!!

Da de da.

Oh what larks.
dusteddown: (Default)
Change of plans Doug, you cunt. I'll see you in hell.

Well that was cathartic. I'm going to hand in my withdrawal shortly. I've resisted the temptation to scrawl the above across it in thick marker pen. Don't want to antagonize the administration. Would be just my luck that I'll have to go crawling back at some stage. I really hope not though. Like the poet says: "The future's uncertain and the end is always near." Haha, I still have The Lords and the New Creatures sitting on my bookshelf somewhere.

So yeah, career prospects and such are up in the air again. In the grand scheme of things I can see why some people say "Fuck this." and go surfing.

Despite all that, right now I'm feeling damned happy!

I am absolutely ashamed I was unaware of the genius of Peter Cook until recently. Unforgivable! But I'm doing my best to make up for it. I went into town to buy any books I could get my hands on (cept the one his ex wrote), managed to find the Universe one. The guy at the bookshop was impressed with my choice and we had a bit of a chat. He pointed out that they also had a copy of Goodbye Again and let me have the both at a discount. So I'm swapping between The God Delusion and Peter Cook's Universe at the moment. They make for a good pair. Have also ordered Bedazzled and Only Twin from Amazon, they should be here next week sometime. Have my eye on Beyond The Fringe (Hey, I have one of those now!) dvd on US Amazon, but will try my luck in Melbourne first.

I'm obsessed with this in particular:

I love it and have put a transcript on my wall, it joins Ginsberg's 'America' and Dylan's 'Last Thoughts On Woody Guthrie'

Got The Horrors on Wednesday. Hurrah!
dusteddown: (nick)
I love that film.


Barring the Blues Explosion getting over their issues and playing support for a Tom Waits/Iggy Pop tour of Tassie, things could not be looking any better concertwise :-D

August 8th - The Horrors at the HiFi

August 17th - Dylan at Rod Laver

October 20th & 21st - Nick Cave solo & Grinderman at the Enmore

Can your heart stand it!?

Ok, this is just far too ridiculous and awesome to have occurred. Nick Cave doing a karaoke version of Bootylicious, at a gig hosted by Russell Brand.

Fuck you, Doug. I'll see you next year.
dusteddown: (goff love)
Just flinging my excitement at the interweb: Russ and Matt in the footsteps of Kerouac! Fantastic!

Haha, this journal is just a constant cycle of "Ergh, life sucks!", "Look how pretty he is!", "Uni's rubbish!", "I bought this!", "Uni's alright!".

Won't mess with a tried and true formula, so...

You can go to hell Business Info Management, no more ruining my Wednesday afternoons/life (at least until next year). And IST blah blah? Dropped like a stone! Boom *clap clap* for real.

Got 78 for my database assignment.

Was feeling very zen assignmentwise, 2nd database is just sql, no faffing around with business report format and the online one is some tedious, time consuming fluff piece. But then I go on Vista tonight and the 3rd DB assignment is up. Analysis report comparing DB solutions, between 3,500 - 4000 words. Due a week after the 2nd assignment. MOTHERFUCKER!!! How the hell am I supposed to get that done in the last week of semester!?!

Ok, ignoring the madness until tomorrow. Early tomorrow. Very very early tomorrow.

Currently addicted to: Jarvis Cocker - Jarvis.

I got accepted into the course! WOOHOO!

Thus proving that there is no problem that can't be solved by denial and gazing at photos of Russell Brand.

So yes, brilliant! No miserable job hunt resulting in a miserable job. And I've got a year to get over my shyness, inability to wake up before 10, basic allergy to work and misanthropy. Haha! It's eluded me so far, but I reckon this could be the year.

Gifts I would like:

1. Crocheted coat hangers
2. An old television
3. A baseball bat

2 and 3 must come as a pair. They are of no use on their own.

Ok. So, 2007. Over a week since coming back from Melbourne and sadly the high of buying a shitload of awesome stuff can only last so long. I've since been pistol whipped by reality. But let's not get into that, far too depressing. So instead of me typing out my inner monologue, which basically amounts to whatamigoingtodoohchristwhatamigoingtodofuckidonotknowhattodorinserepeat, here's Russell Brand looking sexy in school attire:

Confession time: My Shame dvd arrived a few days ago, and chapter 3 may be getting slightly more attention than the rest of it. "Without context this could look very saucy..." Indeed.

I love these Christmas 'news roundup' letters. This one arrived weeks ago. I have no idea who these people are. Names have been changed to protect the mundane. Any spelling/grammar mistakes are theirs, emphasis is mine. Yes, I believe she is referring to herself in the third person.

Well another year has come and gone. )

I'm DONE!!!!!!!!

dusteddown: (sprinklers)
Because when it's quick and dirty and done in MS Paint, it doesn't count as study procrastination.

dusteddown: (nick)
Yay! I have my email pal back! My terrible slackness in writing has been forgiven thanks to much groveling and Ms Johansson and Ms Von Teese's Flaunt photospread. Thank you ladies :-)

"I know what you're asking yourself and the answer is yes. I have a nickname for my penis. It's called the Octagon, but I also nicknamed my testes - my left one is James Westfall and my right one is Doctor Kenneth Noisewater. You ladies play your cards right you just might get to meet the whole gang."

I know what you're also wondering and again the answer is yes. I have a new desktop background, and it is HOT!
