allo pol.

The only thing i could discover about that studio is that it's some ex-getaway (sony team soho) doods, and they're doing something big. Looks like it'll be around a hundred people on a 3 year project.

have a look here.

The Exorcist, re-enacted in 30 seconds, by bunnies.

no more can be said.

did anyone hear that sony opened a big fuck off studio in Bondi?

I looked in that interweb we hear so much of, but to no avail.

4. Pastor of muppets

I l;ike

DanaSoft - My Amazing Signature!

Okay, me again, I guess I am making up for lost time.

There's a guy who gets on my tram - well, it doesn't actually belong to me, but anyway, I keep seeing this guy, all dressed up like it's 1991 and always wearing a metallica tshirt - thankfully not always the same one, or I'd have to buy some of those crazy pine tree air fresheners and hang them around the tram, which could be difficult, because I think someone switches my tram under cover of darkness. I can't be sure.

Anyway, shouldn't more members of metallica have kicked the bucket by now? There are kids listening to metallica whose parents were in *school* when cliff burton unexpectedly left the band...

So I got to thinking about metallica, and thought they might like a bit of help for their next cd. So here's the tracklist:
1. All parents are evil
2. Two
3. I can still rock out even though I cut my hair
4. Pastor of muppets
5. I am like a tiger
6. Somewhere over the rainbow there is death and war
7. War is bad (but still kind of glorious)
8. Fight fire with water
9. People over thirty tell you lies (except for us)
10. Fucking sensitive

we all need more toy piano music in our lives. Toy piano music, oh yes, and discos in our mouths. Sorry liz, this was going to be your birthday present, but the frieght was a killer. That and you'd have to stop talking for long enough to get it in.

When you come across something like this on lowbrow, you know you have to blog it:
Helium Shoes
At the dinner table, I show my fianc?e my new sneakers, and mention that they're very light.
She hefts one: 'Wow, nice, but nowhere near as light as my dad's helium shoes.'
Me: '???'
She: 'When I was 10, my Dad came home with a pair of really light shoes. He explained that the manufacturer injected compressed helium into them, so they weighed almost nothing.'
Me: 'Compressed helium?' I look over at her Dad (LowBrow keyword: 'You've been fucking my daughter!'). He hasn't accepted me at all yet, but at least he has the grace to blush and avert his eyes.
Me: 'Annie. Why would compressed helium be lighter than air?'
Across the table, Dad loses it. Twelve years later, somebody found him out. Annie is stricken. It was one of her favourite childhood stories.

It made orange juice come out of my nose.

God bless the idiots a voice, and allowing us to mock them!

I've always been partial to Not Proud.

if you ever needed proof positive that chucky p. reads lowbrow, i think that story might be it.

I claim this weblog in the name of Mars! (technorati grab). They don't seem to have a facility for multiple authors, that is to say, I haven't looked. Nyer.

chuck pahlanalanahaniuk's GUTS



Tuesday, March 16, 2004

Harry, run for the hills the Auld Firm are coming to Melbourne.

Glasgow's Celtic and Rangers playing a friendly in Victoria.

3 words.




Monday, March 15, 2004

2 words:


he just might you know, he just might.

the saturday Guardin in the supplement had a Chuck Pahlalahanalahanuik short story.
The cover proclaimed "GUTS by Chuck P(etc), is this the most stomach churning story ever written?"

Seeing as I was a little tender I decided, quite rightly, to delay my reading of it.

Dunno if any of you have heard it if not I can post it, as long as my scanners capacity to read text hasn't bolloxed up.

Liz, yup look fwd to finally meeting, I will be the guy doing a Pope routine on the Tullamarine tarnac.

Well monday/work awaits ...well I am at work so I should do some I suppose.


live from the house that worms built.

No worries, Pol. I look forward to meeting you for the first time when you make it back to Melbourne.

As for you Harry Mc Butt Brain.... so I accidentally wrote 'meet' a couple of times when I should have used 'met'... hope you feel all warm and fuzzy tonight when you cuddle up to the Oxford dictionary.

Friday, March 12, 2004


is that the one you were alluding to Harry?

Liz I am afraid that that night is a not a blur due to beer but a blur of border line hysteria on my part.
As I didn't really want to leave for the UK but the debts were mouning and there was NO work in sight I had a choice of using the last squirt of cash to live on and then I was screwed, or go back to blighty and get work easily.

Hobsons choice or what.

So I do hope you can forgive me or my lack of recall but i was preoccupied with the horror.

Pol x

looks like some of the keys on your keyboard are broken miss abbott.

Hey Pol, do you know who I am? Harry thinks you probably don't know and don't care, but he's mean. I'm the 'strawberries and tobasco' girl you meet briefly at Ian's just before you went back to Scotland. You may not remember as I think you were at one with the beer that night. I meet Susannah when we were both working at Lonely Planet, but I already knew Tony White through Clare. The I met Harry. Anyway...hello.

I dunno about that seth, Warwick the midget has got a posse, (to paraphrase Shepard Fairy's Andre the giant posters.)

The Onion A.V. Club | Who Could You Take In A Fight? 2000

The Onion: Who could you take in a fight?

Seth Green: [Laughs.] Um, Warwick Davis. He's the guy in Willow, and he played Wicket the Ewok. I'll kick his fuckin' ass. I'll throw him down a fuckin' flight of stairs. I'll grab him by the ankles and shake him out on a fuckin' concrete stairs like an Oriental rug. [Laughs.] I used to think I could take Gary Coleman until he beat up that lady.

O: He's like a security guard or something, so he's probably got training.

SG: Right, and I saw that chick. She was big, and he kicked her ass. So now I'm not as sure. I used to think he was the one. [Pauses, laughs.] Warwick Davis is such a good answer, man. [Laughs.] I'll fight the fuck out of Warwick Davis.

Fiddling with resumé I discover this ...

Heh. Blaze was the bit of Beam that didn't make games, for the uninitiated.

blah de blah...current girlfriend...blah de blah...plucks ex girlfriend's eyeballs out...blah de blah...has a word to Dept. of Immigration about ex girlfriend staying in melbourne...blah de blah...Harry shows ex girlfriend his etchings.

PS. I'm not really a bunny boiler, and Harry's ex girlfriend is really quite nice.

Monday, March 08, 2004


blah de blah...ex girlfriend...blah de blah...catch up...blah de blah...comes round my house to talk about staying in melbourne...blah de her 'pest control' & 'arguments and resolutions.'

I think it's the first time I've ever watched them both in succession, as well as the first time I've had the gift of distance from A&R.

And I think that it's actually really, really good. (As is pest control, but you'll have to put up with my brief burst of narcissism)

At the least. The least. Its as good as 80% of the absolute shit short films I've sat through.

So I'd just like to say FUCK YOU to all of the melbourne film festivals who've chosen not to include it this past year.

You know who you are!


You can go about your business now.

how sad am I?

they're reshowing the Melbourne Grand Prix, and I'm looking out for the shots from the helicopters of melbourne.

No change their really as the last 7 GP's I was trying to see anything of melbourne BUT the grand prix.

Uncle Fuzzy, are you writing something for Sharon and Mick?

I heard something along those lines, but could be wrong.

Love to you all.

Do you think his girlfriend noticed?

Do you think he really wanted it removed?

Tuesday, March 02, 2004

liz that has taken care of lunch time for the coming week.

I know I'm risking public humiliation on account of you all being computery, gamey people (in the good way), but hell, I'm no stranger to humiliation and I think this is fun (especially when you work in an open plan office and are feeling a bit reckless).

eve,I have yet to recieve it as I hadn't "verified" my paypal account. Anyhow I have seen printouts from a friend who has the same camera and I can say they are indistinguishable from a Hasselblad.
And this is just at the sta\ndard pic setting, as it wil go up to 6 meggepixels, not often but it will.

Fingers crossed that I get everything sorted today.
