Hi David, you sound like you've been having too much fun. I have too. Doing music for Ozploitation movie. I don’t want to alarm you; but we are heading for new Dark Ages, but first we will first have to go through a Denaissance. What would the Denaissance look like? (See Rafael Behr
Sunday June 3, 2007 Observer for real explanation) Well for a start it will look like I have been rejected by the puerility of the music industry yet again. What do I have to do to get recognition from those infantile F**KS? Die? Get cancer? Have a heart attack? These are rhetorical questions – don’t email solutions. Marcia Hines, Radio Birdman; a MC5 cover group for god sakes! Best not be bitter about this. Virtue is its own reward. Apart from that, hope you & yours are AOK - Mia &dogs. Unlike Graney I do vaguely know where you live. Its beautiful in a modern utalitarian way that distinguishes the adults from the children. (whatever that means?)

Dear Stephen, your comments keep me going. I am listening to side 2 of Sherbet's greatest. Writing my book tonight I was trying to make a joke about how Richard Burgman's name sounded like Radio Birdman, I have been reading the life of AJP Taylor and have come to believe jokes, however lame, allow you to get away with anything else. By the way, I was looking at an article about you from Rolling Stone from about 1981 tonight and it said you had given up smoking. I knew you had given up smoking but I didn't realise it was so long ago. Keep up the good work. I nearly exploded this evening at Safeway when I thought the girl at the 8 items or less counter had deserted me to sell someone some cigarettes but I think she just couldn't bear me and decided to go somewhere else. I had a good interaction with a girl at Coles Express too, her name was Emma and she put my Notbacon in the same bag as the soy milk and said 'it seems like the same genre' and I said 'yes that's an appropriate oeuvre'. Talk about sharing a moment. With, you know, a fellow human. By the way I really appreciate all that stuff you gave me - So you want to be a r 'n' r star is so great, it kept me going at Rottnest (though the oldies preferred The Necks). But the Mental as Anything EP had a big chunk missing... oh well... I do appreciate it. David.

Well, strange that you should be listening to sherbet, because yesterday Daryl braithwaite stalked me. True. It was in elsternwick. He's quite sweet and funny. He's playing a gig in july at the corner, maybe we should go together? I can get our names on the door maaaaan. Played a party tonight. A gang of 60 art deros as my girlfriend Kathleen would call them. Old art students, living in oakliegh and Murrembeena. Not Howard Arkley though. He's dead. You probably know that. I read a bio of him, by some chick from the age - tragic! I think you're probably being sarcastic about the comments thing. I don't know gig ryan, but I think i saw her at the moodists reunion. Haven't I got a great memory for moronic detail for an old guy? No need to answer.. Let it be a lesson david. Canberra, I read helen garner's book about that od/murder case set in Canberra this week. The girl was horrid. It's quite well- though over written. If ya know what I mean. I'm reading so many books, I'm glad i took the speed-reading option at art school. Oh yes, I did give up smoking oin early 80's - for about 5 years, also cdoffee, sugar, alcahol etc then I went and did film degree at Latrobe and it was so boring I started smoking again. Bizarre. I could never listen to side one of sherbets greatest hits david. You are a good person. You are non-judgemental. All the best teachers are like that. My girlfriend for one.
Later, unless you're still up at 12:53. Then you can reply.
Stephen
