On the news...

(*) Recording continues for the "Lancelot's Pram" solo album, with a second night recording some electric guitar ideas at the Milltown Hall last night (Thursday). I didn't hear from Julian (the drummer) at all, but I'd planned to go along to play some music anyways. One or two of the songs I'd thought of doing one way I don't think is going to work, so a change of direction may be needed. It's no biggie.

(*) ABC's supposedly satirical asshats "The Chaser" have aired (and have now supposedly belatedly apoligized and pulled it off the web) a supposed skit they did the other night - about kids with terminal diseases. How totally fucked-up of them. They've no boundaries, obviously... and doing it just to get some reactionary ratings. I'll never ever watch it ever again. I'm totally angry about this shit the ABC seems fit to air on our TV. Grrr.

(*) Then there's the Chinese govt's wholly-illogical reaction to the 20-year anniversary to the Tiananmen Square massacre... as if the rest of the world doesn't know it happened, and as if the Chinese can continue to stop their own people from finding out the truth about their own countryand freely expressing that IN their own country. There is something seriously fucked-up about China's own-peoples' policies...

(*) And I just read that 72-yo actor David Carradine seems to have ended his own life in a hotel in Bangkok. I thought he was really really good in Tarantino's "Kill Bill" films. We'll never know what drives people to come to this solution to put an end to their own lives. RIP.

  1. The Chasers are pure wankers, and more, I am livid with them too!RIP Mr caradine!
    Good luck with the recording, or is that break a leg? :)

  2. there are so many reasons people kill themselves...he only knows his reason. I just have to believe that it's going to get better.

  3. He didn't mean to kill hisself. He was just hanging around having a hand party.

  4. They look like wankers as well...what possessed them...there are things that they could really shitstir about and do some the Chinese government what you mentioned about them...or Rudd's recession we are not having...or the state of our hospitals...they are fools

  5. See if you can rent David Carradine's "Bound for glory" where he plays Woodie is a wonderful movie...being a musician you will appreciate it.

  6. I was once a fan of the Chaser, my daughter Kate was in the audience for much of the 2007 season. They have lost the plot and totally stepped over the boundaries and like you I will never bother to watch them again.

    I love Cazzie's statement of "pure wankers". Yes.

    I have been suicidal in my life, but my family always pulled me back. But please don't judge, sometimes they are in such pain it seems like the only way out.
