that's SO 1985...

so I've wasted a large portion of today talking to Mikey on Messenger and doing not much else... granted I got washing done, swept the back porch and sorted out the few dying pot plants... had lunch with my neighbours... did the leftover dishes from dinner with Amy, Ella + Dave last night.

Oh, I might add, we watched Rushmore last night, I haven't seen that movie in such a long time... and if you've never seen it I highly recommend watching it. SO FUNNY! Many people said it was the movie that brought Bill Murray back into the big time. He certainly does a very great performance in it. I wonder if the main actor "Max" has been in anything else?? He was great in it as well, i forget his name... Jason Schwartzman.

I made this list a while ago, so I thought I'd share it....
Objectives of moving to Brisneyland:
* Stop working 2 - 4 jobs
* Get training / more experience in Festival + Event Management
* Join ZZZ
* Get fit
* Become less cynical
* Study the fine art of SLOWING DOWN!!
* Spend time with people I haven't spent proper time with in 10 years!
* Own less material posessions

This is the end of the rambling...

i got too much to say to be a rapper...

Thank you The Procussions. (seriously, their CD kicks ass)

Two of my girlfriends are coming over to eat soup and watch videos with me tonight, very low key.

So far when I get to Queensland I am already going to THE CAT EMPIRE and DARREN HANLON!! woo and a hoo hoo!

I have already sold half of my furniture without really trying, which is great.

Dreams of all sorts have been plaguing me, some more interesting than others.

Am organising a series of fare-thee-wells and schtuff before I leave this fine city... I can announce my last LAWNMOWER MUSIC will be Sunday 19th September *sniff* hopefully with a host of special guests and crazy random lawnmowery goodness. Tune in, turn it up. 93.7FM 2-4pm.

so sleeeeepyyy....

and yet still typing. baaaaaaahhhhhhhhhzzzzpppptttt << that's my brain.

i felt really good today... after some exciting news last night and a gorgeous sunny day today... i mean the regular *panic* of 'shit, only 4 weeks left' is still there, but the more stuff I go through.... again... for the fourth time... and pack away/donate/throw away/bling bling ... the better i feel.

Had a meeting about the touring Amnesty Freedom 'festival'... can confirm that it's at Traffic on the 24th September, doors 8pm. See:

me gustas sos ojos son muy brilligante!

truly, and I mean that...

i am at work, the second job, doing work related things, stopping briefly to mention that I hate working two jobs and will endeavour to NOT work two jobs when I move to Brisneyland.

I haven't been watching as much of the Olympics as I had endeavoured, though I have noted that some Aussies have been kicking serious amounts of butt. Which is fab and good on ya guys!

Honestly, JET are the most SHIT BORING band ever. It's not revolutionary or new, *yawn*... how DARE they share my pseudo name. bastards!

Oh well, back to it!!

foot in mouth disease...

i really have it, at least as far as text messaging is concerned... part of me must not think it's real because it's digital... anyhoo...

My heart has been absolutely swelling all day, there is a reason for this, but I dare not say.

Sometimes humanity isn't all bad. That's about all I need to say.

Still packing over here...

you're criminally beautiful...

i can't help trying to be romantic in everything I do. A lot of things break my heart.

romantic songs, tragic love stories, live music, fresh tea, thoughts of things past...
hugs, wet kisses on the lips, episodes of drama shows on tv, the smell of freshly baked bread....
unnecessary tales of death, people who don't have simple respect for others...

i wish i knew were the happy button was...!!

zee plane boss, zee plane!

I'm sorry, I don't know why I said that! (go Rik Mayall)

I wonder what was actually on my list of things to do tonight instead of typing here?? I know washing, making muffins and cleaning up were on the list...

When you choke a smurf... what colour does it turn?

*LOL* I just found this bunch of 'question of the week' type things on an old floppy disk. Classic!!... along with an essay on the Aeneid, and ELF BOWL!

A-nonny-mouse reader has asked WHY BRISNEYLAND?

Several reasons:
1) it's warmer than here
2) i know 3 people in Brisbane
3) if I don't get out of here for a while, I am honestly genuinely worried about what might happen to my mental state.

And yes, I do Three D, why else would I post set lists??! Enjoy!

everythings coming up millhouse!!

that's so nerdy, but so am i!!

So it's official... I'm now planning a move very soon to my new city of choice... this being Brisneyland!

This week has kind of sucked... I nearly got run over as a pedestrian, and when screaming at the moron behind the wheel, he told me to shut up and sped off. I felt like kicking the shit out of the side panels of his car, but what would that achieve apart from a criminal record for me??

Then I got soaked in the rain which meant I got sick because it took about 3 hours at work to get dry.... not so bad, I knew that would happen.

Then some courier guy that doesn't even work for the same company as me, abused me for something that he knows nothing about (to do with procedure where i work)... and, though this is harsh, all I could think was 'I'm higher in the food chain than you mate, keep your shit to yourself'...

This week is our annual RADIOTHON, so tune into 93.7FM and put your money where your ears are. If you like what you hear, if you're a band that gets played on Three D... sign up, help us stay on air for another 25 years.

Aussie girls kick ass!

Three men were sitting together bragging about how they had given theirnewwives duties.

The first man had married a woman from Albania, and bragged that he hadtold his wife she was going to do all the dishes and house cleaning thatneeded done at their house. He said that it took a couple days but on thethird day he came home to a clean house and the dishes were all washed and put away.

The second man had married a woman from Korea. He bragged that he had givenhis wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes, and thecooking. He told them that the first day he didn't see any results, but thenext day it was better. By the third day, his house was clean, the disheswere done, and he had a huge dinner on the table.

The third man had married an Australian girl. He boasted that he told her that her duties were to keep the house cleaned, dishes washed, lawn mowed, laundry washed and hot meals on the table for every meal. He said the first day he didn't see anything, the second day he didn't see anything, but by the third day most of the swelling had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye.
