What’s your excuse?

The collapse of my computer system has provided a perfect excuse not to do any Worpressing for weeks but it came back today and if last night’s concert by Bob Dylan at the Rod Laver Arena isn’t worth crowing about then I don’t know what is. The highlight was for me was a song I’d never heard before ,  John Brown, with a heartfelt Nettie Moore a close second.

Anyway, yet another honourable loss for the Blues today against The Bombers has left me deflated. At least I had the brains not to go. Yeah, Bob has travelled well and his shedding of the guitar except as an opener in favour of the keyboards I guess was a Newportesque moment. I loved it. RRR’s claim on air that he closed his set with the guitar has got me thinking that there is a parallell universe or perhaps they didn’t go after all. Ballad of a Thin Man was great and there was this little keyboard figure and I know I’ve heard it before. It’s been playing in my head all day but I’ll figure it out I guess.

The Blue Klowns


I’m glad I didn’t stick around for today’s DEBACLE so here’s a lovely photo instead. Like the Blues, this old Brisbane Bridge is of not much use any more and of sentimental value only.

I don’t want to talk about the footy


The Blue Klowns played like millionares last night and proved that hubris is a losing strategy. Last week they won by 40 and shoulda won by 100 and the dismal last quarter of footy last week was carried forward so this week they lost by what they shoulda won by last week. In short, a complete Jeffing. But before you Carlton Haters out there get too carried away remember that a clap for the Poohs and Pees is a pat on the back for Mr Kennet and he hates youse all.

At least I had the brains not to go.

and they’ll know that they’ve been playing the famous old dark blues

Last night’s defeat of Port at the phone dome by the Blues was manditory veiwing for anyone interested in the art of Australian Rules Footy. The clinical dissection of the happless Port Power was merciless apart from a klownish final quarter. What posessed Mark Williams to pick a clearly out of sorts Warren Tredrea can only be explained by the effects of drug use or a low I.Q. as Port were exposed as a team of one dimensional hacks. B.O.G. for the winners was #1 Andrew Walker with the team playing well all the way down the list. The Blues crowd indulged itself in an orgy of bogan footy fan celebration, the likes of which hadn’t been seen for nearly four dismal seasons. The rumour from the outer is that Sir Richard Pratt is going to splash some of his excess cash on fixing up Princes Park to AFL standards and start playing games there again and you know that makes sense, don’t you? Go go go go that lovely old Carlton money.

blues_footy_duck_0001.jpgThrough out thick and thin, footy season after footy season, Footy Duck has never waivered in his belief in The Mighty Blues. Footy duck may have been just 50 cents in some unknown OP Shop but what are you gunna do? Hate him? I think he should run the country. Go footy duck …..

Money well spent


Blues (21.12 138) d. Bulldogs (19.14 128)

The Blues were ‘triffic ‘gainst a manful but klowish Dogs today at the ‘G’ but something has to be done about umpire softcock and his lame push in the back interpretation before I have an embolism. Fair dinkum someone asked me if the umps were still white maggots and obviously they still were despite the tragic Richmondesque black and yellow get up. Blue number 44 Curazzo was B.O.G. in a team of WINNERS with Johnston and Cooney the best for the LOSERS.
