    how crap is this government ?

    the next federal election will see the libs annihilated tony abbott will push to lead the righteous right, and they'll be dead, buried and cremated for quite a spell

    What's on your mind?

    35% primary vote means the libs will die on preferences, as both labor and the libs will have directed to phelps in preference to each other a rare occasion where the preferential voting system scores a win for australia

    and.... labor is suggesting scomo should call a federal election, although the libs are yet to formally concede wentworth is gone hahahahha.... i don' think so if he's enjoying being the leader of the country, because it's be a rout tony abbott seems to have had his vocal cords cut for several weeks now the thought of scomo telling us tomorrow that the liberals have heard australia and they'll be working harder than ever to do whatever it is they believe they are doing, will be even more nauseating than his usual schtick

    give chaos lady the stage joni is a totally under-appreciated songwriter, and her lyrics deserve the nobel prize more than bob dylan... she wrote "both sides now" when she was 23 and a half years old, and it still stands as a fresh and relevant song half a century later check her out at age 26 ! with both songs live

    Everything in it's right place.

    ha ! actually an apostrophe but i get the idea having read wiki about them, and despite loving nearly everyone they name as influences, i remain underwhelmed i only listened to (some of) ok computer a few months ago, and it doesn't do it for me i did however quite like "creep" back in the day, although i understand die-hard radiohead fans think that was an aberration and not representative (a bit grunge i feel) maybe i'll try another session

    calling for hints already ? i'm somewhat incredulous that it hit the australian charts in 1970 (!) and belatedly in the states in 1975, although cover versions also charted in usa / canada in 1994, and then again in 2002 when it again got airplay worldwide solo act for the original, from a prolific extra-ordinary singer / songwriter

    g-man as rock god.... how disconcerting and then i was considering offering "uptown funk" as the next quiz, only to see that cybes posted that very track in the "what did you watch" thread as i was checking the performer (and discovered it only "featured" bruno mars)... spooky coincidence so given my lack of knowledge (and enthusiasm) for most other relatively current "hits", i'll go old old school, because i'm old byt by jm ancient, but a huge hit (and rightly so) - and i expect even the youth of today might recognise it once it's named

    Canada gets high

    cookies are big in the states for that reason i guess (per my international emissary who travels for such pleasures there) interestingly the price of a big batch in the u.s. of a. makes alcohol seem prohibitively expensive personally, i care less for intoxicants these days, but i wasn't at all adverse last century

    that suggests the song might be called "so cold" but i've never heard of it duck duck go tells me i have got it right, but i disqualify myself because i had no idea who the band was, though i do recognise the name once i read it

    i see dead people

    ian kiernan of clean up australia fame the man that andrew constance knocked over as a choice so he could make a captain's call to christen a boat "ferry mcferryface" instead of after the public's preferred candidate i hope the next state election cleans up nsw parliament, for a well deserved come-uppance

    i see dead people

    my dear mate andy, who was a big part of my life during most of university and early postgrad in adelaide until we moved to opposite sides of the continent for work suddenly, at 60 years young (like me), in perth i am sadly starting to rack up significant numbers of peers who have moved on past this realm; interestingly, only one person i came to befriend here in sydney since arriving in 1983 has died (not counting several patients who i also befriended but were for the most part a deal older than me, and attrition prunes their ranks quite regularly)
