The inane and the gloating, part II: The Point, Dublin - August 23rd

hell, yeah! YEAH! YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!




soon after, this happened:




to paraphrase ninie, "jangan jellesssssss...". hahaha. why does it matter, you may ask? this is why:

"You will receive 2 wristbands with your tickets, which will allow the Ten Club member and a guest to enter the venue 15 minutes before doors open to the public. This will allow you to secure a spot as close to the stage as possible. "

oh well. now, how much do i need to pay for air fare...

Status Symbol



sebuah keluarga
sebuah banglo
di lereng bukit

seseorang sedang membuang sarang labah-labah
di lukisannya yang mahal
yang tak pernah difahaminya

seseorang memasang api rokok
dengan dunhill emas berkilau

dua orang berpelukan di atas sofa antik
sedang floyd cramer memainkan 'help me make it through the night'

farouk makan hamburger di meja mahogany
farah menyarung tee-shirt ketubuhnya tanpa baju dalam

udara menghirup max factor dengan lahap
seseorang sedang bersiap-siap untuk menemui anita sarawak di hilton
dengan BMW siri 735i nya

sebuah keluarga
di lereng kota

(The Lukewarm.)



IT'S THE DEVIL'S WAY NOW
THERE IS NO WAY OUT
YOU CAN SCREAM & YOU CAN SHOUT
IT IS TOO LATE NOW
BECAUSE
YOU HAVE NOT BEEN PAYING
ATTENTION
I try to sing along
I get it all wrong
Eezeepeezeeeezeepeezee
NOT
I swat em like flies but like flies the
buggers keep coming back
NOT
Maybe not
"All hail to the thief"
"But I'm not!"
"Don't question my authority or put me
in the dock"
Cozimnot!
Go & tell the king that the sky is
falling in
When it's not
Maybe not.

(ahh diddums.)

Bitterness is an avocado sliced in half

currently listening to unemployable.

early friday morning, i got a message on MSN about the online sale of pearl jam's april 20th show at the astoria. i checked ten club and ticketmaster and saw no such thing. i dismissed it as a joke and went to work.

when i got back, i re-checked ten club and to my utmost dismay found the entry about the ticket sale a lil' way down the webage. apakejadah!!! apahal entry mac 30 bawah 21? and i went to work lambat pulak tu. anak haron betul.

the point of ten club's existence, apart from news and x'mas 9" vinyls, are tickets. why didn't they sell the astoria show as they did for other ones. yeah, i know - a rant pasal tak puas hati.

anyhoo, the paper wrap has been removed. wanna make some guacamole this may 2nd?
