false memory

Ha! In your face, world!

When I was a kid, I swore to my brother I heard Monkey on Monkey (Magic) call a monster "poofter". Thanks Wikipedia.

I wonder if anyone can confirm an episode where Sandy mutters "shit"?

girl talk 3

Girl Talk was fucking dope, as predicted. M reckoned his performance was über democratic because of all the people crowded onto the stage, and because GT, for all his thrashing and showmanship, wasn't the sole object of attention. It was a drunken observation, but a good one.

There was great and unexpected support from USA punk/rock/DC/cheerleader group Partyline, though it looked like Kiosk's Jack doing drumming duties (can anyone confirm that?). They're supporting Spider Vomit tonight, but I'm too knackered and busy to go.

Finally got my hands on GT's latest album, Night Ripper. More brilliance.

For the first time in a while, I had a really good night –- even when M went to sniff the Radox bath salts that C bought from a guy out the front of Hungry Jacks on Chapel Street at 2am.

Thanks to all that came.

On another tangent, how bloody hard is Super Gem Fighter?

be somebody

Just had a fucking BIZARRE interaction with one of those outsourced telemarketers. He was trying to drop in Australian colloquialisms but in rather strange ways.

"As a bloke, you are not listening to me." he said. Truth is, he wouldn't listen to me as I tried to explain politely that I wasn't interested in receiving any more unsolicited calls. This got him really mad and he started yelling at me.

"What's wrong with you? I'm not a telemarketer! I am from a financing company trying to offer you a service! Am I taking anything from you?!" he yelled from somewhere in Asia.

I explained that he was taking up my time and my patience and the only reason I was still on the phone to him was because I was trying to make it so he didn't call back. He asked for my name and when I refused to give it to him (because, I said,I didn't want more telemarketers to call and pretend to be my friend by asking for me by name). He continued to yell so I hung up.

I wish I had the guts to sing this to him, because he was clearly being somebody's fool.

girl talk 2

I super psyched about the Girl Talk gig tomorrow night. I've been doing curls and working on my glutes in preparation. My posse is pathetically small (three and counting) so if you want to join my gang at Revolver Upstairs tomorrow night, feel free. Tickets are $22.20 from Missing Link. More on the door I think.

if i'm so immature, why does your bum stink so much?

This actually made me laugh. Alot. So I made a screen grab. It's from the Apple Network Utility.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I was trying to find a port for the Azureus bittorrent client because Bittorrent seems to run too slow for me, and the usually fantastic Bitrocket now crashes on opening. Is there a simply good working client for OSX?

UPDATE: I'm now using Bits On Wheels. Seems to run a bit better and it's pretty, but I'm still not getting the speeds my PC friends seem to get; and yes, I am bumping up the upload speeds.
