Aah the KK thread, how I have missed you and messrs Big Jack, spook, golly, snake and all others who dip in and out of here.
This thread is as familiar and comforting as settling into a giant bean bag with a cold Melbourne Bitter to watch the Tiges in the 1980 GF.

However now it's time to plug in the amp and turn the volume up to 10 with the help of a unique band from the early 90s..
Good morning Muthas.

Wake Up - Rage Against the Machine

Come on!
Uggh!

Come on, although ya try to discredit
Ya still never edit
The needle, I'll thread it
Radically poetic
Standin' with the fury that they had in '66
And like E-Double I'm mad
Still knee-deep in the system's sh!t
Hoover, he was a body remover
I'll give ya a dose
But it'll never come close
To the rage built up inside of me
Fist in the air, in the land of hypocrisy

Movements come and movements go
Leaders speak, movements cease
When their heads are flown
'Cause all these punks
Got bullets in their heads
Departments of police, the judges, the feds
Networks at work, keepin' people calm
You know they went after King
When he spoke out on Vietnam
He turned the power to the have-nots
And then came the shot

Yeah!
Yeah, back in this...
Wit' poetry, my mind I flex
Flip like Wilson, vocals never lackin' dat finesse
Whadda I got to, whadda I got to do to wake ya up
To shake ya up, to break the structure up
'Cause blood still flows in the gutter
I'm like takin' photos
Mad boy kicks open the shutter
Set the groove
Then stick and move like I was Cassius
Rep the stutter step
Then bomb a left upon the fascists
Yea, the several federal men
Who pulled schemes on the dream
And put it to an end
Ya better beware
Of retribution with mind war
20/20 visions and murals with metaphors
Networks at work, keepin' people calm
Ya know they murdered X
And tried to blame it on Islam
He turned the power to the have-nots
And then came the shot

Uggh!
What was the price on his head?
What was the price on his head!

I think I heard a shot
I think I heard a shot
I think I heard a shot
I think I heard a shot
I think I heard a shot
I think I heard, I think I heard a shot

'He may be a real contender for this position should he
abandon his supposed obediance to white liberal doctrine
of non-violence...and embrace black nationalism'
'Through counter-intelligence it should be possible to
pinpoint potential trouble-makers...And neutralize them,
neutralize them, neutralize them'

Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!
Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!

How long? Not long, cause what you reap is what you sow

Ok..got that out of the system. ;D

Now something a little more mellow from a guy who is so much more talented muso than the pop idol I once thought him to be when he first entered the scene.
A good one for Tiger fans struggling with the season right now.

The Age Of Worry - John Mayer

Close your eyes and clone yourself
Build your heart an army
To defend your innocence
While you do everything wrong

Don't be scared to walk alone
Don't be scared to like it
There's no time that you must be home
So sleep where darkness falls

Alive in the age of worry
Smile in the age of worry
Go wild in the age of worry
And say, "Worry, why should I care?"

Know your fight is not with them
Yours is with your time here
Dream your dreams but don't pretend
Make friends with what you are

Give your heart then change your mind
You're allowed to do it
'Cause God knows it's been done to you
And somehow you got through it

Alive in the age of worry
Rage in the age of worry
Sing out in the age of worry
And say, "Worry, why should I care?"

Rage in the age of worry
Act your age in the age of worry
And say, "Worry, get out of here!"

The Royal Hotel on Alexander Rd. Sunday night. Its been a huge weekend after jacks 10 and Fletchers impromptu, live-to-air, and unprecedentedly concise retirement. The mood in the joint is sombre. Tania Hird is having a really dirty martini in the corner with Andrew Demetricon. Tania's face looks like its full of methane under a permafrost. Her martini looks like a thickshake. Jimmy is spastic, dancing all alone, to a weird Palestinian fund raiser montage just released by Danni Minogue. When The Weapon burst into his impassioned solo, Jimmy lurches to the video juke box and smashes it badly with an ashtray.

"They knew. yes they knew. it was in their GPS. It wasnt just a wild guess. They knewmmmmmrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr" SMASH!

The owner is an Essendon bloke, so he just goes "thanks James, Ive wanted to get rid of that old thing for months. I'll sweep it up mate. your right"

Never mind that I was enjoying danni's unusual choir. But theres still a karaoke juke box in the pool room. I finish my last steamed dimmy, wipe my hands on my new red delicious boardies, Put $2 in the box. Smile at Jimmy, nod at Tania, give Demetricon the finger, and sing.


The Thymosin chip inside his head
Gets switched to overload.
And nobody's gonna go to school today,
She's going to make them stay at home.
And daddy doesn't understand it,
He always said he was as good as gold.
And he can see no reason
'Cause there are no reasons
What reason do you need to be shown?
Tell me why?
I don't like Mondays.
Tell me why?
I don't like Mondays.
Tell me why?
I don't like Mondays.
I want to shoot
The whole day down.
The telex machine is kept so clean
As it types to a waiting world.
And mother feels so shocked,
Father's world is rocked,
And their thoughts turn to
Their own little jimmy.
Sweet jimmy ain't so peachy keen,
No, it ain't so neat to admit defeat.
They can see no reasons
'Cause there are no reasons
What reason do you need to be shown?
Tell me why?
I don't like Mondays.
Tell me why?
I don't like Mondays.
Tell me why?
I don't like Mondays.
I want to shoot
The whole day down.
All the playing's stopped in the playground now
he wants to play with his boys a while.
And school's out early and soon we'll be learning
And the lesson today is how to lose.
And then the bullhorn crackles,
And the captain crackles,
With the problems and the how's and who's.
And he can see no reasons
'Cause there are no reasons
What reason do you need to die?
Tell me why?
I don't like Mondays.
Tell me why?
I don't like Mondays.
Tell me why?
I don't like Mondays.
I want to shoot
The whole day down.

Jimmy is unconsious, face down, in a pool of vomit. I hear the owner say to the bouncer "he's been working really hard lately. hes really tired. and I think the chicken parmiaganna he had for tea was off". Demetricon has left. Tania looks puzzled.

Feeling grungy tonight. A little RHCP's. Just loved the lyrics in this tune.

Californication - Red Hot Chili Peppers (Kiedis, Smith, Flea, Frusciante)

Try to steal your mind's elation
And little girls from Sweden
Dreams of silver screen quotation
And if you want these kind of dreams
It's Californication

It's the edge of the world
And all of western civilization
The sun may rise in the East
At least it settles in the final location
It's understood that Hollywood
Sells Californication

Pay your surgeon very well
To break the spell of aging
Celebrity skin is this your chin
Or is that war your waging

First born unicorn
Hard core soft porn
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication

Marry me girl be my fairy to the world
Be my very own constellation
A teenage bride with a baby inside
Getting high on information
And buy me a star on the boulevard
It's Californication

Space may be the final frontier
But it's made in a Hollywood basement
Cobain can you hear the spheres
Singing songs off station to station
And Alderaan's not far away
It's Californication

Born and raised by those who praise
Control of population everybody's been there and
I don't mean on vacation

Destruction leads to a very rough road
But it also breeds creation
And earthquakes are to a girl's guitar
They're just another good vibration
And tidal waves couldn't save the world
From Californication

Pay your surgeon very well
To break the spell of aging
Sicker than the rest
There is no test
But this is what you're craving

Rebel Rebel (David Bowie)

Doo doo doo-doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo-doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo-doo doo doo doo doo

You've got your mother in a whirl
She's not sure if you're a boy or a girl
Hey babe, your hair's alright
Hey babe, let's go out tonight
You like me, and I like it all
We like dancing and we look divine
You love bands when they're playing hard
You want more and you want it fast
They put you down, they say I'm wrong
You tacky thing, you put them on

Rebel Rebel, you've torn your dress
Rebel Rebel, your face is a mess
Rebel Rebel, how could they know?
Hot tramp, I love you so!

Don't ya?
Doo doo doo-doo doo doo doo doo

You've got your mother in a whirl 'cause she's
Not sure if you're a boy or a girl
Hey babe, your hair's alright
Hey babe, let's stay out tonight
You like me, and I like it all
We like dancing and we look divine
You love bands when they're playing hard
You want more and you want it fast
They put you down, they say I'm wrong
You tacky thing, you put them on

Rebel Rebel, you've torn your dress
Rebel Rebel, your face is a mess
Rebel Rebel, how could they know?
Hot tramp, I love you so!

Don't ya?
Oh?
Doo doo doo-doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo-doo doo doo doo doo

Rebel Rebel, you've torn your dress
Rebel Rebel, your face is a mess
Rebel Rebel, how could they know?
Hot tramp, I love you so!

You've torn your dress, your face is a mess
You can't get enough, but enough ain't the test
You've got your transmission and your live wire
You got your cue line and a handful of ludes
You wanna be there when they count up the dudes
And I love your dress
You're a juvenile success
Because your face is a mess
So how could they know?
I said, how could they know?

So what you wanna know
Calamity's child, chi-chi, chi-chi
Where'd you wanna go?
What can I do for you? Looks like you've been there too
'Cause you've torn your dress
And your face is a mess
Ooo, your face is a mess
Ooo, ooo, so how could they know?
Eh, eh, how could they know?
Eh, eh

I whisper, rather than yell, into the Bangalow Hotel. Last time I was here, Winx won the Cox plate, and they had to write me a cheque for half my winnings. I was a different beast that day. Drinking some belgian sh!t that was 8% and smelt like blue cheese. It was $12 a schooner and it tasted like blue cheese and had the effect of a gurkha. The Tigers had just ridden the same ride as me. A neurochemical graph that looked like a cross section of way North Vietnam. It was fun. and kind of exhausting.

So after 100mg of Lamactil, which tastes so much better than the belgian sh!t, Im getting this curious side effect. What ever I dream about, my arms flail about in real nocturnal life. I dream about Shane Edwards, and I handball the glass of water on my bedside table against the wall. Im a 90kg sleeping popeye marionette at the mercy of my subconcious.

Anyway, in an anonymous corner, dreaming about Dannyl Rioli's disco moves in the goal square, and a hawthorn bloke, whose got a head like Adam Cooney at 50, boat shoes and a huge LeCoste crocodile all over him says to me 'Go the Tiges', and both my arms straighten and I involuntarily hit him really hard on both ears. One hand up, parallel with his head, the other perpendicular. Its a big, triumphant clap

Luckily, the pasty hawthorn henry isnt really hurt. But my new style is stuffed. Ive got my good going out thongs on. and a gloriously ill fitting, poor quality light blue T-shirt, that highlights the hair on my back.

My head hung, I shuffle around the wall to the Karaoke machine


Standing at my doorway
I wondered why his hand was painted red
'It's just a scratch' he said
Here we go again
We stumbled to the car
By the time we hit Prince Henry's he was white
I said 'You look such a sight'
He said 'I don't feel no pain'

And I know just what to do
And I know it's nothing new
We've been through this before
And I must follow
Why must it be you (on a white train)?

I stuck until the end
Though you said I was no friend
But you were blind
I was much too kind
On a white train
Some will swill and some will sip
Some just find a place where they don't slip
Others take a kip
On a white train

And I know just what to do
And I know it's nothing new
We've been through this before
And still I follow
Why must it be you (on a white train)?


Theres another tiger bloke there. He claps. and he doesnt feel any pain either.

The publican takes the microphone.

In light of recent events, and with deepest sorrow at the passing of Richmond supporter Patrick Cronin, and with deepest sympathy for his Richmond supporting family this is a timely reminder that it's not ok to hit anyone around the head. Whether intentional or not the consequences can be devastating.

Please join us in a minute's silence in honour of Patrick. Maybe he rest in peace.

He passes the microphone back and returns to the bar. :'(

It's a good night for singing,
I got too drunk and my ears are still ringing
It's so good to be here, it's a brand new day
We been singing weary midnight tunes,
We started at noon, it's a slip of the moon
And we still got time, it's a brand new day

I wonder where are all the pleasant souls tonight
Indecision made them stay home and wait for daylight
Spherical witness, help me in my flight

Singing hours into the night, over and over 'til we saw the light
The nightime seesaw, the love light we saw
Love at the right time, love at the right time

It's a good night for singing,
I got too drunk and my ears are still ringing
It's so good to see you, it's a brand new day

It took us lifetimes to get this far, back to reality
Wonder where we are tonight, it's a brand new day

Life is fragile, and too often tragically short.

I don't have the voice for it (who does?) but you'll just have to suffer through me massacring the most emotionally-affecting (for me) song of the last 25 years. What a celebration and evocation of the joy and perilous pain of life.

No one gets out alive.

Sing. *smile* swing.

Party girls don't get hurt
Can't feel anything, when will I learn
I push it down, push it down

I'm the one "for a good time call"
Phone's blowin' up, ringin' my doorbell
I feel the love, feel the love

1, 2, 3 1, 2, 3 drink
1, 2, 3 1, 2, 3 drink
1, 2, 3 1, 2, 3 drink

Throw 'em back, till I lose count

I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier
I'm gonna live like tomorrow doesn't exist
Like it doesn't exist
I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night, feel my tears as they dry
I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier

But I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down won't open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on for tonight
Help me, I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down won't open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on for tonight
On for tonight

Sun is up, I'm a mess
Gotta get out now, gotta run from this
Here comes the shame, here comes the shame

1, 2, 3 1, 2, 3 drink
1, 2, 3 1, 2, 3 drink
1, 2, 3 1, 2, 3 drink

Throw 'em back till I lose count

I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier
I'm gonna live like tomorrow doesn't exist
Like it doesn't exist
I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night, feel my tears as they dry
I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier

But I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down, won't open my eyes

Help me, I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down, won't open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on for tonight

On for tonight
'Cause I'm just holding on for tonight
Oh, I'm just holding on for tonight
On for tonight

'Cause I'm just holding on for tonight
Oh, I'm just holding on for tonight

Getting my purple on. Introducing the artist formally known as Tigers of Old.
RIP Prince. You were a one of a kind musical master..

Raspberry Beret By Prince & The Revolution

I was working part time in a five-and-dime
My boss was Mr. Mcgee
He told me several times that he didn't like my kind
'Cause I was a bit 2 leisurely

I was always busy doing something close 2 nothing
But different than the day before
That's when I saw her, ooh, I saw her
She walked in through the out door, out door

She wore a
Raspberry beret
The kind you find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret
And if it was warm she wouldn't wear much more
Raspberry beret
I think I love her

Built like she was
She had the nerve to ask me
If I meant 2todo her any harm

So, look here
I put her on the back of my bike
And-a we went riding
Down by old man Johnson's farm

Now rainy days never turned me on
But something about the clouds and her mixed

She wasn't too bright
But I could tell when she kissed me
I knew she knew how to get her kicks

Raspberry beret
The kind you find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret
And if it was warm she wouldn't wear much more
Raspberry beret
I think I love her

Raspberry beret
The kind you find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret
And if it was warm she wouldn't wear much more
Raspberry beret
I think I love her

The kind you find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret

Oh, man. A Mozart-level musical genius has left us.

Oh well, here we are again
Lookin' 4 something 2 get us in the mood
I tell each and every one of my friends
That the love we make is really pretty rude
But they don't believe me cuz it's written all over my face
Like Evian and the deep blue sea
U and me got different taste
U like it in the dark but I like a
Blue light
Can u turn on a Blue light
Then cuddle up 2 me So tight
Just u and me All night
Alright,Blue light
Can u turn on a Blue light
Then everything will be Alright
Oh, Blue light

U say u wish I was shy
I always take a simple thing and push it way 2 far
But baby, that's the problem with u and I
U say not in public but I say in the car
Say, we need to get wild again like it was when we first met
Close your eyes and count 2 ten and when u open 'em -
I'll be standing naked with nothing but a smile on

Blue light
Can u turn on a Blue light
Then cuddle up 2 me So tight
Just u and me All night
Alright,Blue light
Can u turn on a Blue light
Then everything will be Alright
Oh, Blue light

I'll be 117
U'll be still sayin' "Baby not 2 nite"
It's easy 2 see us on the cover of a magazine
"Double heart attack, couple both die in a fight"
Oh Baby! I don't wanna cross that road cuz I love u 2 much
I'd do anything just 2 heat up your cold touch
Anything I would do, but up until u tell me 2

Blue light
Can u turn on a Blue light
Then cuddle up 2 me So tight
Just u and me All night
Alright,Blue light
Can u turn on a Blue light
Then everything will be Alright
Oh, Blue light

Blue light
Can u turn on a Blue light (cuddle up 2 me)
So tight
Cuddle up next 2 me baby
U and me all night, alright Blue light
Light (u turn on a) Blue light
And every thing will be Alright
Oooh Blue light
Blue light
Blue light
Blue light
Blue light
Blue light

Road to Nowhere - Talking Heads

Well we know where we're goin'
But we don't know where we've been
And we know what we're knowin'
But we can't say what we've seen
And we're not little children
And we know what we want
And the future is certain
Give us time to work it out

We're on a road to nowhere
Come on inside
Takin' that ride to nowhere
We'll take that ride

I'm feelin' okay this mornin'
And you know,
We're on the road to paradise
Here we go, here we go

Maybe you wonder where you are
I don't care
Here is where time is on our side
Take you there...take you there

We're on a road to nowhere
We're on a road to nowhere
We're on a road to nowhere

There's a city in my mind
Come along and take that ride
And it's all right, baby, it's all right

And it's very far away
But it's growing day by day
And it's all right, baby, it's all right

They can tell you what to do
But they'll make a fool of you
And it's all right, baby, it's all right

We're on a road to nowhere

After the game, me and lloydy jumped in his HR and fanged it to Deniliquin. LLoydy fell asleep a couple of times, but the HR knew the way. I was drinking mountain dew and irish baileys. There was a midden in the back seat. We stopped and re-baited some yabby traps with a Bandicoot we hit.

When we got to the disco, me and lloydy slipped in quietly, after having to go to his dad'd to borrow some grey rivers to get in. I felt a bit self-conscious in my new coconut palm printed boardies, last years dreamtime at the G jumper, and the Rivers. They were two sizes to small. Lloydy hit the floor just before the karaoke bloke called my name. Man, he can dance. I walked to the machine like a Geisha.

Bright light city gonna set my soul
Gonna set my soul on fire
Got a whole lot of money that's ready to burn,
So get those stakes up higher
There's a thousand pretty women waitin' out there
And they're all livin' devil may care
And I'm just the devil with love to spare
Viva Ben Griffiths, Viva Ben Griffths
How I wish that there were more
Than the twenty-four hours in the day
Cause even if there were forty more
I wouldn't sleep a minute away
Oh, there's black jack and poker and the roulette wheel
A fortune won and lost on ev'ry deal
All you need's a strong heart and a nerve of steel (the crowd go wild)
Viva Ben Griffiths, Viva Ben Griffiths
Viva Ben Griffiths with you neon flashin'
And your one arm bandits crashin'
All those hopes down the drain
Viva Ben Griffiths turnin' day into nighttime
Turnin' night into daytime
If you see it once
You'll never be the same again (Crowd go even wilder)
I'm gonna keep on the run
I'm gonna have me some fun
If it costs me my very last dime
If I wind up broke up well
I'll always remember that I had a swingin' time
I'm gonna give it ev'rything I've got
Lady luck please let the dice stay hot
Let me shout a seven with ev'ry shot
Viva BEN GRIFFITHS, Viva BEN GRIFFITHS,
Viva, viva BEN GRIFFITHS

Lloydy was doing back spins to the chorus. There were a couple of heavy blokes over the other side of the floor who looked really confused. One reminded me of robert trimboli.
