Did I ever like Xmas?

Hope you are all looking forward to a relaxed time with family or friends or your pets or whatever.
I lost the vibe for christmas some time ago, about the same time I realised Sea Monkeys were just tiny prawny things.
Of course it is a confused festival down under.
Christmas or Yule or whatever just doesn't make sense in the horrible heat.
Yes I am Captain Bah Humbug.
Fake snow,Christmas lights, fake pine trees, overeating, overdrinking,boring racist relatives, shopping centres on sterioids, it drives me insane.
This year I bought a crate of champagne and that is it.
Everyone gets one even the kids.
It's quality stuff dont worry.
Santa of course is evil as any one who has seen "silent night deadly night" will know. I'm not recommending you do.
Anyway enjoy your time off.
Heres a stupid game to get Santa off his faceand on the floor
Heres a sickly sweet one for ya
And be nice to people and your credit card.
And don't eat the fake snow.

Living in a Westside story

Looks like we aren't in for a summer of love this silly season.
We Sydneyites are in for our own version of Westside story.
We even have the Sharks.
Unfortunately I fear it won't stop until someone is push off this mortal coil.
Racism and hatred are very hard to get back in the bottle once they have been let out., and boy are they out.
But it is nearly all young men I believe having the same turf war they have always had.
Unfortunatly there are some other salts in the wound.
Osama,Tampa,gang rape,Bali,Alan Jones and The patriotic youth league and lets not forget the media who have endlessly publicised the whole thing.
And they will sell more papers over this dull time for news.
Which makes me wonder is there reallyless news over Xmas or is it just that Journos are all on holiday?
On a lighter note did you see Podcast was voted word of the
I was slightly ahead of my time? or am I now passe.
Maye I should change my nom de plume to Peter Podjackas this seems to be the next little thing!
Untill we pod again.

Who let the Blog Monster out?

I have tried to maintain some discretion between my work at various institutions and my other lifes.
Which i admit is counter to the spirit of blogging I know.
I talked my brother who is a international cult rock star (at least to my Mum) into starting his own blog and although he was dubious has now declared it to be a wonderful thing.
He is posting every day, long poetic, silly, touching entries that I really enjoy reading.
And so do his fans.
And they have all started blogging too.
I wont be advertising his site though coz I don't want my secret identity to be revealed.:-)
By Google I reckon at least 100 people have been infected through me.
Should I get vacinated?
My little doco may be on in Federation Sq in Melbourne which is a little exciting.
Must show it to the class with popcorn an jaffas.
Blog ye well.
