666 is also around about the next viewer of this blog.

So get those virgin sacrifices ready y'all.

Song

I hate people that post lyrics, so here I go.

This song from one of the greatest records ever made.

ScaryMother's first and only record, released in '94, TAI LAEO.

Here are the words to track 5, Looking Down. I don't really think they have any special resonance to me, just that ScaryMother were awesome.



Looking Down
by Scary Mother
She's staring daggers at me Somehow she believes that's alright
That's alright
Straight through the hole in my head Her words whistle by like the call of dead That's alright That's alright
Hey if it's world peace you want
Come again
Maybe if you beat me up then I could be your friend
I see a video fast food hell under a neon sunset
Well that's alright That's alright
I was first and you were second I'm flying business class to heaven
That's alright
Enjoy your flight
Hey if it's world peace you want
Get real
Maybe we can do lunch someday
Let's make a deal
Looking down on the scheme of things
It doesn't really seem to mean that much at all
Looking down on the scheme of things
It doesn't really seem to mean that much at all
Looking down I see her turning
Without a sound she takes it burning
In the silence of space
Amazing Grace
She is so beautiful
Looking down on the scheme of things
It doesn't really seem to mean that much at all That much at all
Looking down on the scheme of things It doesn't really seem to mean that much at all
That much at all
Hey if it's world peace you want
Take a ride
Baby if I had the gift then I guess you'd be fine
Looking down on the scheme of things
It doesn't really seem to mean that much at all
Looking down on the scheme of things
It doesn't really seem to mean that much at all
Looking down on the scheme of things
It doesn't really seem to mean that much at all
Looking down on the scheme of things
It doesn't really seem to mean that much
Ohh, and, if anyone is interested (which I somehow and honestly doubt - as good as Scarymother were, chart success was not their forte), go here for a 'where are they now' (and scroll down a touch)

Found...

Found….

Hi Y’all.
The piece of writing you are about to read comes from a notebook I found on the train about a month ago.
I have NO idea who this belongs to, but would dearly love to hand it back to its rightful owner.
I have included the following because I feel it is a beautiful piece of uninhibited prose that deserves to be sent out into the ether.
In transcribing it to word-format, a few scribbled out bits were omitted. Further, I have tried to as faithfully as possible to keep spelling and punctuation as they were in the notebook; I’ve only changed the minimum necessary to make reading a little clearer.
Also, there were a number of individuals and places named by name. I’ve edited these by using symbols in their place.

Please now, sit back and let this piece of writing touch you as it touched me….


Mum.
What was it I did wrong?
I just wanted to finish the scarf in cooler weather 10:15 sat night
If u wanted me up earlier why not tell me, if u had something for me to do!!?
Otherwise what does it matter?
On the phone u cought (sic) 4 min and said u didn’t have breath to hardly move from chair to chair.
I came up here for the right reasons to maybe bond with U + help U
On the phone U said U loved me U haven’t touched me in 9 days No hugs no goodnight kiss, nothing
Everything I try + help you with means nothing to U

A holiday means going out Beach (sic) etc…
Have I asked U fro anything special.
I offered (sic) to take you to tea We had cake and fish + U didn’t even mention it – U never ask me what happening in my life, because U don’t care.
I remember at ####’s funeral people didn’t know who I was (…. )
@@@@’s daughter, “oh we didn’t know she had 1”.
+++ and === wear what they like, do you say anything to them?
Photo’s, don’t you think that hurts me?
+++ the chosen 1, me the bad blood U once said as I entertained U in B*****y.

My last night at home #### hitting + hitting + hitting me as I sat on the chair U watched.
I vowed to leave the next day + U said “U’ll be back, U see, U’ll be back”
Well I didn’t.
And just fore the record I was still a vergin (sic) till 16 with *&^$#.
I won’t be back this time either, maybe if I was invited. U never saw any goodness in me + you’re so wrong. I’m very gentle + loving + and caring with a special gift. U just don’t want to know.
It’s Ur loss.

I’ll still ring to check what doc says. Because Ur my mum + I do love you.

How can U love 1 child over the other?

I’ve lived with that for 40 years.

Know I’m free, did it, U can’t hurt me any more, It’s history. I’m going on my own way.
I’m a good person + U don’t even know.
MY MUM.




As I stated earlier, I’ve no idea who actually owns this.
I attribute it to the author and in no way claim it as my own. If you have any clue as to who may be the Author, please get them in touch with me.

'Ts been a while

Hey fans. (he he)
Yeah its been ages again.

I haven't been well.
And I've been thinking of quitting the Union. Mainly cos there are quite a few of us, but only a vrey few of us actually attempting to get some work done.
People may not know this, readers here for example, but our student union is fighting on a daily basis for our mere existence, let alone student rights and voice.
And where are most of our elected students reps?
Wandering around with their heads blissfully up their arses.

So, as well as trying to function as a union, the few of us are anyway, AND trying to be the voice of students on campus and trying to give students the avenue for their voice, there are others doing sweet FA.
Which, I do find extremely disheartening.
Here I am, spending how ever too many hours of my life offering students a voice and wondering why apathy is so deep, yet the people I am trying to work with within our (dis)organisation seem just as, or even MORE apathetic.
That, plus the workload. I am SO far behind in my course-work its not funny.
And now, too, its looks like I'll be taking over as the Chief Editor of the Uni Magazine. More time, but at least that one will be fun and rewarding.

Argh.

But anyhow, let's get on with saving the world eh?


...A broad coalition of organizations has collected over 40,000 signatures on
