Alex, I know this syndrome, but have you ever started to sing the next track when you were seeing the band live?
I remember seeing Age of Chance* and after they played "learn to pray" i started to sing the intro to, yeah you guessed it Blister in the sun.
All due to a righteous compilation tape.

* Leeds honky hip hoppers with yorkshire accents first release a cover of Princes Kiss , weirdly the cover for it was the first Designers Republic gig.
I know cause Mike (nicky westcott's Mike) told me.

What's The Next Song?

As a consequence of listening to a favourite album, or a 'various' album, a mix tape, or a playlisting radio station too frequently, you may be used to expecting to hear a particular song just as another ends.

For me, every time I hear 'Blister In The Sun' by the Violent Femmes, rather, when I hear it ending, I anticipate the first few bars of The Cure's 'A Forest', as a consequence of listening to a tape of JJJ's Hottest 100 from one of its first incarnations, before they decided to restrict people's votes to songs released in that year.

It's started again with a mix CD Ministry of Sound released in May, "Chillout Session Summer 2003" ... well ... I've got the Australian release which is dated '2004' with a different track listing ... oh well, there goes that post.

I am a dirty fucking paedophile who deserves at the very least to be slowly castrated with a number of rusty implements

i love you meatrobot - to quote:

"So, I have the fucking bitch job of fuck. I forgot to tell that. And I
can't get any other job, because I am on the Enemies List. And also,
that job makes my head bees get angry almost every day. And. BORING.
All the time. As boring as a stupid guy who is a different kind of
stupid from what you are".

and there's more... clicky forfun.

also - i nicked that from hotsoupgirl, who will kick my ass if i don't linkback. because she knows karate and shit.

from popbitch:

"A mate of mine and some footballers were out
on a golfing jolly, and sat in the clubhouse
having a celebrity shag conversation.

"Sean Connery walked in, so a couple of the lads
shout over to him 'Hey Sean, bet you've had a
celebrity shag or two.. what's your best ever?'.
Connery just grimaced and walked out.

"Later on, some of the lads were still sitting
around and Sean walks back in. He comes over to
the table and said,

"1964. Petula Clark. Up the arse"

Then he walked out.

Couldn't anyone else have gotten Alex too, I feel like some crazy person here! Speaking of crazy, over the last 2 days, bill and I have watched city of lost children, and don't look now - much crazy dwarf action, plus the added "highlight" of a lot of shots of Donald Sutherland's bum. (In don't look now). So yeah, bill thinks I've ordered the world's weirdest films from www.homescreen.com.au because those ones arrived first.. pfft, he should be thankful I didn't get the entire meg ryan back catalogue. Not that I'd want to, it's just the most grating stuff I can think of.

In other news, I went to court today! The crazy bogans who didn't pay for their dog (long story) and then eventually paid for it, too 4 people to court to get the signature of one person... they wore their best tracksuits to court though, so at least we got a laugh at their expense. (And the outcome was that we now have a court order to the effect that they can't breed sibling dogs with each other. Which is a big YAAYY! for us.)

Oooh, I've rambled, I'm going to go now.

I am going to hijack your idea Harry.

I thought a second-person shooter would be where ... you get to play all the people that die in a FPS.

I bought the new 'wario' GBASP game-boy-advance-ess-pee or *big gay al voice* "great big assp!" ... game for my half-brother's tenth birthday. I mean for him. It's a bit of a 'blipvert' kind of game where you play these two or three second mini games, in sequence, to complete each stage. Kinda cute. Hella addictive.

So imagine what it would be like ... playing all the grunts, one at a time, respawning each time you get shot by the fiendishly over-equipped 'hero' of the game. And you get to play all the bosses. Like the blind idiot god at the end of Quake. *makes wet gibbering noises*

Not Nyarlathotep. The other one. The tentacly one. Not Cthulhu. Shub-Niggurath? Or was it Hastu-- rkkkcchhggg

"richer than astronauts"

that is some of the best use of english I have heard in years.

right up there with a description of the disgraced and bankrupted tory MP Neil Hamilton

"He'd wank for coins"

good stuff Harry

i had this idea for a '2nd person shooter'

basically the characters in the game wander up to you and tell you what you've just done.

"aaarrrggghhhh. you've just shot me!"

i'll be rich. richer than astronauts.

Post Script: (Pre Script?) About to go into Matrix Reloaded, which will probably be better than Revolutions, if the New York Times review is any guide. No spoilers there, unless you count 'it's shit' as a spoiler ... damn

"With the blood-lust of old gone, I used it for harmless plinking fun of the can-and-bottle-shooting variety, then when I came back to Oz I left it in the care of a relly of my then-girlfriend.

Sometimes I still hear it calling to me, particularly on wet nights..."
What, yer then-girlfriend? *boom boom*

and yes... a barnett black widow twith the surgigal doo dah and folding thingummy.

I haaaaaaveee theee poooowwwwwweeeeeerrrr.

well my pal Jon is in the air. Obviously we are all in the air, that's how we get the stuff for breathing purposes.
But he is in a plane in the air on his way to Oz, tullamarine to be exact.
he is a really nice fella, so don't let him get killed by the trams.
viscious bastards those trams.

Love to you all

Oh and HAIL SATAN for Catholic Schoolgirls. Via daypop or blogdex or both.

Girls pummel man who exposed himself

PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania (Reuters) -- A man described by authorities as a known sexual predator was chased through the streets of South Philadelphia by an angry crowd of Catholic high school girls, who kicked and punched him after he was tackled by neighbors, police said Friday.
But was anyone recording the girls kick the shit out of this guy? I reckon you'd get more kinks coming out of the woodwork to buy that tape than the 'regular' voyeur stuff... When I see catholic schoolgirls on my way to work, instead of fnarring or ignoring them I've been wondering 'how hard can she kick?', before I heard about this incident. I must be in tune with the cosmos, or something.

Finally ...

Well i have officially lost my soul to ebay and all online shopping facilities.

Got a black widow sling shot cause I was never allowed this sort of a thing as a child, and quite right too.

Am also bidding on a Graphire2 WACOM on ebay, just bought a Dell monitor and am havingf a monster machine* made.
All without letting sunlight see me bahoochie.

Just got paid, just got a tax rebate...good bye to both.
