Music,artz and Sportz!

This is where the blog is going, at the moment.

Have, had, enough of boreing politicians. A small time to talk about other things. A challenge, to all, about their most favourite music, this year. Great Art? Love to see pictures. Favourite recipes? Ricky Pontings best innings\please not. More,slighty time out.

Update: Vale Kerry Packer and 'cliche' special. According to the P.M., he was a 'great orstralian' and "larger than life". (And promised not to talk of boreing politicians, but could not resist. ) Mr Lefty has posted well,see below, at the 'demise of an aussie icon', 'before the first sod has been turned'. Any other cliches that come to mind, or heard, would be most appreciated. May not Kerry, bully more.

Weeweechu !

Joke, that was the best I could come up with, as the holiday season begins.

One December evening, Huan Cho and his girlfriend Jung Lee were sitting by the side of the ocean. It was a romantic full moon, when Huan Cho said 'sweet flower', let's play 'Weeweechu'. "Oh no, not now, let's look at the moon" said Jung Lee.

"Oh, let's you and I play Weeweechu. I love you and its the perfect time, "Huan Cho Begged." But I rather, just hold your hand and watch the moon."

"Please Jung Lee, just once play Weeweechu with me. "Jung Lee looked at Huan Chi and said, "OK, we'll play Weeweechu." Huan Cho grabbed his guitar and they both sang.....

"Weeweechu a merry Christmas, Weeweechu a merry Christmas,Weeweechu a merry Christmas, and a happy New Year."

And a happy solstice from Joe2, who is busy cooking.

"Don't be Evil"

The motto/house statement of "Google" and owner of ,"Blogger".

Just hope they can maintain that sought of standard.
We all rely on it.

Scott Parkin and Terry Lane.

Sunday sees the retiremement of Terry Lane . Sad to see the old bastard go. Have enjoyed his quick and clever mind for many years. From christian minister to giving up on the 'god thang'. Sure, he has plans to continue ,slightly,but his departure will be a great loss. He showed his usual spunk on last weeks edition of, " The National Interest", when he interviewed Julian Birnside, about the case of Scott Parkin.

An American citizen, who was held in custody,disposed of,with a large quasi-fine,for reasons we may never know. Thus, is the likely fate of all local citizens who rub the nose of our cold Attourney-General. To quote Birnside Q.c,we are on the virge of "totalitarianism". Find last weeks interview around here and a goodby kiss to Terry.

Hippy shit and shameless Plug.

See link for a great festival that I have visited more than a few times. Not sure, I will be able to visit this year, but a great antidote for Chrissy grief. The history of this relaxing,well organised event, goes back to Uncle Jim Cairns. Good veg food,some nudity,great river and get used to pooing quick and loveing flies.

Thanks to 'Mountain Murmers' for the idea. Promote stuff you like,have no financial interest in,and just want to see it remain.
The happy folks above, are from google image/'hippy'.

Slightly, Time Out.

Apology, that I have not posted recently. So much stuff to think about and wondering why, I bother to blog. Remember, that I only started this persuit because some sites required my membership of "Blogger", as a chance to make a comment.

Have enjoyed the company of many friends over this trying year. Blogroll has never been provided, because I would not know how to do it anyway. To the people have who provided comments/support, thankyou very much. Especially, Brownie and Suki.

A little plug for this blogger because he/she is so wise and bloody good . My inspiration from a long time back! Mind you, beware of Harold Hark. Thankfully, now an expat.

Can you define 'Democracy'?

The challenge ,here, is to protect the most endangered word in the alphabet. In frivilous mode, please,unless you have to be serious. I will go for ,"government by the people, for the people", because our 'souvlaki' at 'Eat at Joes', is the best. And , didn't Greeks invent both words, anyway?

A little Plagiarism/stolen

"EXAM BLOOPERS: Here are some items taken from actual exam papers in the United States.* A student in a science class wrote, "The universe is a giant orgasm" (instead of organism). At the end of the student's essay, the teacher riposted, "Your answer gives new meaning to the Big Bang Theory." * All animals were here before mankind. The animals lived peacefully until mankind came along and made roads, houses, hotels, and condoms. * Men are mammals and women are femammals. * Involuntary muscles are not as willing as voluntary ones. * Cadavers are dead bodies that have donated themselves to science. This procedure is called gross anatomy. * When you breath, you inspire. When you do not breath, you expire. * H2O is hot water, and CO2 is cold water. * Artifical insemination is when the farmer does it to the cow instead of the bull. * Mushrooms always grow in damp places and so they look like umbrellas. * Germinate: To become a naturalized German. * Rhubarb: A kind of celery gone bloodshot. * Vacuum: A large, empty space where the pope lives."

Personally,I reckon they are not bloopers,but show great wisdom.Especially,the last one. From here....

Power Addiction.

With the sad death of ,Van Nguyen, confirmed, it seems an appropriate time to talk of Singapore ,democracy,drugs and what might be gained from this senseless killing. No one enjoys the harm that comes from heroin addiction. Or, any other drug for that matter. Many around the blogs have hailed Singapore as the 'model of a modern major -general', in cracking down on this substance. They have a pretty good reputation on 'chewing gum', repression with large fines.

'Joy' on talkback, praised the place as "clean and neat" and lamented the lack of discipline amongst our young. Another great comment on an unnamed blog, spoke of Singapore as a "democratic society", and while she dislikes capital punishment ,she accepts their right to enforce their laws.

Power is a 'drug' and has not yet been prohibited. As long as it used with some sense of responsibility, we would all be happy. See here, for more info, on the wonders of a pseudo democracy

George 11 is such a funny guy.

Reported ,through a leaked document, that the President talked to his mate Tone about the possibility of blowing up the headquarters of al-Jazeera in Quatar. The defense-- he was just joking with his pal.,,2-1885279,00.html
