Seduce and destroy

mostly ripped-off...
overheard travelling by bus.
Nothing in moderation.
This world ain't just...
I noticed and pointed out.
Is it wrong to want reward.
get the best deal for yourself.
want more than is given to you.
carry something in your head.
magnify the way I feel about myself.
due to lack of interest tomorrow is cancelled.
accepting only perfection impedes progress.
being nice because you want something.
love we have is love for ourselves.
all our hopes and expectations.
we bury our secrets in the garden.
there's a right way and a wrong way.
seconds last for days.

(rural Journey)
Passing Me by...
tussock, birds, sheep, machinery, cows
macrocarpa, sheds, irrigation, gorse,
dogs, utes, rust, wool, overgrowth
rock, homestead, grain, tractor
boats, gold, graves, market
rugby, planes, alcohol
Out the window...
In my head.

Athens of Otago

I had to go to Oamaru the other day...
It's not necessarily somewhere you by choice.
I learnt a few things on my journey...
I had previously thought that Omma's was basically your last chance to get fast food on a car journey to Dunedin. The reason I had to go down there was a prolouge to an earlier story. I was to be a witness in a Coroner's inquest. Which is not really too difficult itself, I just stood in the witness box while the cop read my statement, then ask if I agreed. A pretty small thing to do seeing had to travel 8 hours on a bus to get there and back. Seeing I was there for a good few hours I went and had a look at the historic precient and found out about it's history. It is actually pretty cool, if your into Victorian buildings made of White stone. In fact if you get turned on by New Zealand pioneer heritage preservation, its a bit of a wetdream. But although it has a almost fully preserved area filled with Victorian buildings, I wouldn't have wanted to be there too much longer. But I might stop a little longer next time I drive to Dunedin.


Population: 15,000 (approx.)
Nickname: The Whitestone town

By the way it was her fault.

Victorian splendour of an untouched nature

I'm happy right now, I hope you are. The purpose of this exercise is not to depression the sh(*)t out of you, but I guess in some ways, the material I display can occasionally be melancholy, dark, cynical, paranoid, contemptuous and dark but you can't blame me. Maybe you were depressed before you started reading all this and now you just want someone to blame! I'm just telling it how it is (to me). I am me. As is where is. Harsh is real and all that palava.

I like jokes....

I think even I'm starting to have trouble telling the difference between sarcasm and seriousness.

Species in Denial

Why am I here?
Where else would I be?
Why am I so curious?

Bumper Sticker of the Week:
Normal people scare me.


Come ride with me
Through the veins of history
I'll show you how god
Falls asleep on the job

And how can we win
When fools can be kings
Don't waste your time
Or time will waste you

---Muse 'Knights of Cydonia'---


Endless Cycles of Enduring Wisdom

I close my eyes and I drift away...


Sometimes my dreams are friggin' awesome, sometimes they are absolute shight.
Usually they are somewhere in between...

They can be and are...
exciting, fun, memorable, fantastic, informative, educational, ludicrous, creative, frightening, horrific, catastrophic, genocidal, torturous, inactive, deadly, ambiguous, confusing, ambiguous, deceptive, unforgettable, tragic, heartbreaking, unbelievable, realistic, wonderful, humorous, stupid, tiring, emotional,enlightening, historic, sanitised, f*cked, overwrought, totalitarian, empowering, depressing, sacrificial, uplifting, spiritual...

Just like "real life".

Dreams are not restricted by factors such as time, logic or death...
this is good and bad, both during and in the aftermath...

"In dreams I walk with you. In dreams I talk to you.
In dreams you're mine. All of the time we're together
In dreams..." (the big 'O')

Infinite Title Disorder

Today’s quirky queries…

How important does a person have to be before they are assassinated instead of murdered?

If money doesn't grow on trees then why do banks have branches?

Why does a round pizza come in a square box?

Why is it that people say they "slept like a baby" when babies wake up about every two hours?

If a deaf person has to go to court, is it still called a hearing?

Why are you IN a movie, but you are ON TV?

Over-thinkers Anonymous


Where tired clich├ęs are updated to fit the New world order…

This week’s featured quotation artist: Thomas Jefferson*
(*I think he was the neighbour on Married with Children)

Just to prove I'm not anti-Republican (of course I am though) I have produced this small selection of ideas to demonstrate the evolution of republican thought. I have selected quotes from the early nineteenth century to compare how I think these ideas would be spun if they we thought of today, enjoy!

"Laws made by common consent must not be trampled on by
individuals." --Thomas Jefferson to Col. Vanneter, 1781.
"Laws made by common consent must not be trampled on by
individuals who did not attend Yale for at least one semester."

"The Habeas Corpus secures every man here, alien or citizen,
against everything which is not law, whatever shape it may
assume." --Thomas Jefferson to A. H. Rowan, 1798.
"The Habeas Corpus secures every man here, alien or citizen,
against everything which is not law, not applicable in
Guantanamo Bay"

"Where the press is free, and every man able to read,
all is safe." --Thomas Jefferson to Charles Yancey, 1816.
"Next on Fox & friends:
If you challenge the government are you a terrorist?"

Unconnected Randomness

Put your light on me
so that I may see...

It's easier to blame others than face up to reality
It's easier to believe a reassuring lie
than accept a difficult or complicated truth...

It's hard to fight instinct/habit.

nothing better to do?

Educated criminals work within the law
we just haven't updated the loophole yet...

There are many here amoung us
that think that life is but a joke...

Form, function and other useless bollocks!

I am wrong, you are wrong...
I guess simplification can be a good thing, as long as it is not at the expense of the truth. I mean, so many news articles are so overly simplified that they become incorrect, or at the least misleading to folk who just skim the surface. The retractions are always hidden too deep within, to be noticed.

Here is a sorta cheesy thought for the day followed by some movie dialogue, jolly original of me I know but I just thought it was something to think about...

Two Wolves

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a
Battle that goes on inside people. He said, "My son,
The battle is between two 'wolves' inside us all.
One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret,
Greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment
Inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.
The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope,
Serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence,
Empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."
The grandson thought about it for a minute
And then asked his grandfather,
"Which wolf wins?"
The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."


Colonel: You write "Born to Kill" on your helmet and you wear a peace button. What's that supposed to be, some kind of sick joke?
Joker: No, sir.
Colonel: You'd better get your head and your ass wired together, or I will take a giant shit on you.
Joker: Yes, sir.
Colonel: Now answer my question or you'll be standing tall before the man.
Joker: I think I was trying to suggest something about the duality of man, sir.
Colonel: The what?
Joker: The duality of man. The Jungian thing, sir.
Colonel: Whose side are you on, son?
Joker: Our side, sir.
Colonel: Don't you love your country?
Joker: Yes, sir.
Colonel: Then how about getting with the program? Why don't you jump on the team and come on in for the big win?
Joker: Yes, sir.
Colonel: Son, all I've ever asked of my marines is that they obey my orders as they would the word of God. We are here to help the Vietnamese, because inside every gook there is an American trying to get out. It's a hardball world, son. We've gotta keep our heads until this peace craze blows over.
Joker: Aye-aye, sir.
