oh, boy, sure wished i hadn't bothered with the news this morning. one thing after another.
60 countries deciding how best to carve up someone else's oil reserves; the nerve, ya know?
police in London now asking for the media to hand over footage of the riots; er, excuse me? that little ol' business of freedom of the press. they don't work for you, son.
"a dangerous precedent" wouldn't even begin to describe future events should this come to pass.
recent "earthquake tests" in Japan; yeah, we know what happens thank you. why not just come out with it and say, "we want to wipe out the population".
recent findings into the New Zealand quake that showed demolishment of one building and left surrounding construction intact; guess what was in that building?
cover-ups and distortions in the build up to the 9/11 anniversary. that's what's so disrespectful to the memory of the people who lost their lives.
a great film on Bill Hicks; bringing up details of the cancellation of his last Letterman appearance. lies and fob-offs. a short routine about pro-lifers; no explanation given. well whaddya know?! during the airing of the programme, pro-life advertisements were shown.
and to cap it all; the Honda deal with Arsenal has fallen through and now he's injured and will miss all of the World Cup qualifiers for Japan. bummer.
think i'll wait it all out with some Grateful Dead late eighties action; Brent is calling me.
happy weekend everybody!
Lesson No. 2:
first time at an expensive spa on a lake in Japan countryside; completely forgot to use cold shower to relinquish the intense sulphur heat and mind/body numb of immersion at 2.00am overlooking starry sky.
light head. thought i was still putting slippers on in the corner. i wasn't.
came around, kimono open, in an elevator. legs open. naked. rural Japan.
most embarrassing? not really.
one to many Sapporo beers and marlboro cigarettes in the evening? missed the most incredible breakfast of fish, pickled vegetables, rice, uni, miso, natto with a view of intense beauty as the sun rose.
another prick lesson for children everywhere.
that's BOTH feet, thank you cosmicbadger; never let it be said that i do things by half!!
oh, and by the way TigerLilly, the goody-goody line comes from Michael Palin's character in Life of Brian; "money for an ex-leper?".
there he is, minding his own business, making a perfectly good living, and wham! "CURES me.......
my wife and i always use that line when we want to take the piss out of each other; must remember that not everyone lives in our weird world ha ha!!
also, that "jonapi is oh so special..." subject post should've been more explicit in saying sorry to lamagonzo; looking again at it now, it could be seen to be some vague, twisted, convoluted ramble that doesn't actually speak to the person concerned; that was supposed to be a sorry to you Gonzo for me being a bit heavy-handed in my reply.
wow, i'm sure being a prick today. still, nothing new.....
'Man with foot in mouth can neither speak nor walk' ;-)
consider me a Teacher;
you can say to your children, "hey, please read these posts; this is an idiot...
see, i AM good for something!
over and done! And I am glad you liked my photos! :D I try try to take shots (when I travel) that show the flavor of the place I am visiting, and what the every day people see-and NOT the tourist Eifel Tower pics. May not always succeed-but I do try :D
I am not young enough to know everything.
didn't mean to make a crappy day even worse. i'd NEVER do that to you on purpose, only in jest!
fuck you Bob Dylan, i WILL think twice in future!!!
i'll apply the tape to my gaping mouth on your behalf.
out of nowhere it made me tear up on a not especially good day.
I am not young enough to know everything.
just a little joke!!! thought i'd stir something ha ha!!!!!!!
you know i'd never mean that in all seriousness!!! just bored and having a giggle, that's all!!!
those photos were great; wanted to comment but couldn't think of an insightful thing to say; i've seen something similar on many occasions in Morocco; changed my wife and i's very being. so full of LIFE!
at the risk of overkill here....(thrash fans will understand the subject header).
i'm well aware that this interview has probably been seen and commented on in the past, but being as i am, in this kinda mood this afternoon, if Suzanne Shaw hasn't suffered unbearably in her life, or better still, retired to the nearest infested ditch somewhere; can anyone name any other conversations and reportage where the truth has been so tiresomely distorted, so abundantly twisted; self-glorified showboating and miserable ego stroking. look at the state of her; a less charitable man than Jerry would have pissed in her face and reduced that lacquered hairdo to the bleached stringy sag that would and should have bind around her neck and strangle her.
bitter and frustrated today? yeah, i guess....
that'll teach me for watching the news at 5.30am.
heinous oxygen thief, lightened by the glow of Jerry is here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vd-sxnfO8xE
