We can be happy…. Underground!

I have eaten so much cheese and dranken so many wines,

And I pledge to bring them all.

but for now. The Hottest 100 from 1996 is my life soundtrack.

Because that’s when I discovered that there was music.

We’ll be decked in all black!

Mmm Hunter Belle Cheese Brie. Shortdated so only $3 instead of 11!
Mmm Hunter Belle Cheese Brie. Shortdated so only $3 instead of 11!


Yeas, I know I feel the need to post this song periodically, but, after the last month or so, with BORDER FORCE and the like, I totally think it’s time again

Well I’m left sitting here staring into a beer
shaking my head at the same ol’ loathing and fear
Stranger in my own land, can’t understand
How the very word Australian has just been damned
I fucking hate myself, take ‘Aussie’ from my name
Erase this endless shame, forever casting blame
If you don’t act the same will I destroy you?
Everyone looks the same beaten, black and blue
So I’ve had enough of these redneck pricks
When fact is the only real shit that sticks
Watch as I tear the very skin from my face
So none’ll see my race, my deep disgrace
Your not even from here in the first place
And those that are you wanna further debate
Nup, no more, never again whether by fist or pen
I will defend, cos I’m at a loose end
The shattered remnants of Aussie dignity
I’m a skip, whitey, round-eye suprise me
By using your shrivelled brain to please explain
How the clever country just went down the drain
We rode the sheep’s back now the sheep ride you
If this is how its gonna be don’t call me ‘true blue’
I denounce my ancestors, wounds still fester
If you say ‘it aint so’ I suggest ya’ wake up


It’s time for you to
Wake up – this country needs a fucking shake up
Wake up – these cunts need a shake up (x4)

Talkback squawking hacks won’t relax
Until Jones’y, Zemanek and Laws are all axed
77 percent of aussies are racist
And if you’re here, I’ll say it your faces
Rich redneck pricks still hold all the aces
So I’ll buy ya a beer, with an arsenic chaser
Better off dead? is that what I’ve said?
Tempting to take for all the blood you’ve shed
No doubt your as bad as your dads and ya mums
Mainsteam media making me so fucking glum
Just anglo reality, intellectual cavities
Channel 9 fostering prejudiced mentalities
I won’t be a casualty, just mention casually
That I can’t stand for you shit-eating bullies
Preying on peeps without a mainstream voice
Most of you stay silent but I’ve got no choice


Well I’ve yelled my lungs out but to no avail
Well I’ve yelled my lungs out but to no avail
Well I’ve yelled my lungs out but to no fukin’ avail
That you’re a stranger yourself now thats the sting in the tail
Captain Cook was the very first queue jumper
It was immigrant labour that made Australia plumper
Enough is enough, whiteys go pack your stuff
Don’t wanna live in England? That’s fucking tough
I’m sick and tired of this redneck wonderland
Most’ve you stay silent and I can’t understand
I just can’t understand (understand)

It’s time for you to
Wake up – this country needs a fucking shake up
Wake up – these cunts need a shake up (x4)

and, yeah, deliberately publishing at 7am. Because that’s the best time to call your incompetent pollies cunts.

duck pancake

So, we went down to Sydney for an AWESOME CONCERT fronted by some amazing rock chicks (The Super Jesus and the Baby Animals!) And, since we were in Sydney proper, we HAD to have decent Chinese food (since it’s not really a Newcastle thing).

duck sung choi bao

So, we had a whole duck, firstly in pancake and then in San Choi Bao at Emperor’s Garden BBQ. We were soooo stuffed and happy, but we also managed to finish a delicious Tasmania Pinot Noir with our meal.

pepik pinot noir tasmania

So light and smooth!!!!

So, the concert was awesome, from the warmup til we left.

The warmup act was so cool an all chick four piece punk/rock act called BANDINTEXAS. I wanted to jump on the drummer and take her home.

And the rest of the night was awesome. Rocking out to Sarah McLeod and The Superjesus? Was it 1998 again? I was in HEAVEN!!!

So, I seem to have a spare cope of the She Who Rocks compilation album, which by the way, is a charity thingy that give $1 to Cervical Cancer research if you opt to buy it?

And yes, I loved Woody Allen Jesus


White wine in the sun…… I cried to that one….

No rose petal glasses

August 10, 2013

These songs by The Herd really capture the joy and relief of the country when we ousted Howard in 2007…. But Abbott and Rudd are dragging us back into playing politics with people’s lives, Tampa-style. *sigh* (and on a lighter but still scary note:)
