Still Sorting The Site Out

Noticed quite a few missing images, so as you can well imagine I’m still sorting the site out. I’ll get there luna or later 😉


Was Wembley – Now EPL

This was originally posted in 2008, but things, circumstances and people change so here it is again 😉

Our Father who art in EPL
Mackay be thy name.
Thy football come goals will be done, by Medel, Odemwingie & Whittingham,
Give us this day
Our daily bread
And forgive us our offside
As we tackle those who trespass against us
And lead us not into bad discipline
But deliver us from relegation
For Cardiff is the kingdom, the bluebird & the dragon
For ever & ever
‘Aright butt’


Just In Case You’ve Noticed

The site being up and down like a fiddlers feckin elbow – I swapped hosts and what a soddin mistake that was grrrrrrrrrrr


Oh Well

We had to lose at home sooner or later, pity it had to be against the magpies and on me birthday – bastards!!


RIP Steve Hill

Bloodrock, an oft forgotten band from Ft Worth Texas – forgotten by most but never by me, so much so I named my youngest daugther after the track ‘Jessica’ off Bloodrock 3. Just found some sad news though, Steve Hill, keyboardist extraordinaire has just passed away.
A sad day for me indeed, I spent many an hr on the phone to TX talking music with him, yes I can say I knew him and proudly too.

RIP Stevie, you Jon Lord and Vincent Crane can rock out the B3’s in Heaven.


Blacktown Council – What A Rort

With the new dawg we are doing the right thing and making sure he’s vaccinated, wormed, micro-chipped etc but you still have to contact the local council – in my case Blacktown to register a dog. So I gave them a call and sure no probs you can reg him WHEN he’s 6 mths old and it’s gunna cost $150. 150 bux? What are they gunna deliver free food for him daily or summut? It’s nowt but a feckin rort as far as I’m concerned, I could get it for $40 if I got his nuts cut off but that ain’t happening, sure lets neuter a purebred animal just to get a discount!!



Now That’s Weird

Go figure, even though it was the Roland that hit the deck yesterday, I just finished plugging in all the midi cables etc and had a spare pair so I thought I’d try the T2ex Korg again as it’s been a real pain and I’ve never successfully managed to get the midi working correctly with that – anyway long story short, plug the cables in to the Korg and WALLOP working midi WOOHOO 🙂


Freak Out Time

I was happily doing something in one room (I think I was making coffee) when I hear a rather disturbing crash from another. What do I find when I reach the room? The Roland, the mixer, a computer monitor and assorted cables laying in a tangled heap on the floor 😐 The way I’ve got the two tier stand set up is RS-9 on the lower, then a solid mount with a computer monitor at eye level – it saves me from having to turn my head to see what’s goin’ on.

Thankfully nothing was broken, and why the stand decided to collapse is beyond me coz everything is tighter than a ducks arse so it shouldna collapsed, another thing I can be thankful for is her who must be obeyed bought a border collie and he likes to wind himself through the cabling, he wasn’t anywhere near the room when it all came down. He’s a smart bloody dog and it wouldn’t surprise me to see he’s worked out how to use a shifter and loosened the mounts just to drive me nutso 😉

I was going to buy a T1 but. . .

I was giving serious thought to buying a Korg T1 (yes I’m insane) and a Korg T3 even to the point of paying bucketloads to have one shipped over from the USA or UK, but BUT after watching the news and seeing the fact the trying to live in Sydney is damn near impossible because of the cost of living here (like people didn’t already know), I sorta thought should I just save me dough and move to the UK and for all you doubters or those that think it’s dearer there I hate to disappoint you but it’s now official, Australia, Sydney in particular is the third most expensive place to live on the planet – so much for the lucky country bwahahaha

You’ll be lucky if you can keep ya job
You’ll be lucky if you can afford to put fuel in ya car
You’ll be lucky if you can afford to feed ya kids
You’ll be lucky if you can afford to paid ya electricity/gas bill
You’ll be lucky if you can afford to go on holidays
You’ll be lucky if you can afford to survive – PERIOD

Ahhh t’is true, Australia truly is the lucky country!!
