LO-FIDELITY WEEKEND PSYCHDELICS
after all the insanity I've survived in weekends of recent past - wot with all the morning after blurriness squinting at unwanted sunlight.. comically near fatal car trips.. crashing random dude's houses (seriously.. who the FUCK wuz this dude called "The Provider?", why were we all at his house drinking his beer at 8AM.. and did JIKA even know this dude either!? eh.. nevermind) 5AM kung fu detours.. weddings.. parties.. howling like idiots in the moshpits.. gulping intoxicants like a lobotomized goldfish.. dim memories of craziness only since made concrete when I witnessed the horrors on my camera's memory card.. yup, after all the braincells I'd killed recently.. sometimes.. a weekend like the one I just had is welcome relief.. a weekend OFF from the usual trainwreck antics.. the lo-fi cruisiness of not giving an arse wot's going on.. beers with no expectations.. chill out.. feet up.. maybe catch some random tunes.. and float on thru to the otherside.. grooooovy..
so, for all of you paranoid that I may've captured your likeness this weekend in some altogether embarassingly intoxicated state of stupidity.. (you know who you are.. niiiice one!) never fear.. this weekend you dodged a bullet..
yup, it may've been a humble weekend.. but, it still got the job done..
and now for anyone who's curious wot a "light" weekend of SPOZ's is like.. here's the autopsy report.. (and don't ask me to explain the plastic farm animal heads.. really.. I got NO idea either..)THURSDAY NIGHT
lost 6 games in a row of foozball.. by the thinnest of losing margins I might add (hahaha... yeah ok.. I can't back that up.. fuckit..), followed by playing another solo gig at a near empty ENIGMA with perhaps a few random drunks cheering me on at the end (aaah you gotta love Thursday nights in Adelaide).. nothing much to report here really.. damn good set tho'.. you freaks should come check it out next fortnight.. yeah.. no really! I play some really cool shit.. you'll buzz off it (arrr.. fuckit.. wot do I care? techno's dead anywaze :P )FRIDAY NIGHT
finally got around to seeing CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY.. and yeah.. it wuz an OK movie.. it had its funny as fuck moments.. but yeah.. guess I wuzn't really in the right frame of mind to truly appreciate this.. for best experience, I'd say it helps either to be under the age of 10 and shit crazy full of sugar or tripping balls on acid.. since I wuz neither.. I didn't really "get it".. then again, I actually READ THE BOOK (back in the day).. so, I'm one of those cynical fucks who's gonna say the book was better than the movie.. (yeah.. don't you hate those guys..?).. spose it could've been worse.. I could've been bitching that the 60's version with Gene Wilder in it wuz vastly superior (probably not hard to figure that.. considering how Tim Burton fucked up PLANET OF THE APES).. but no, really.. it's a good film.. take a pharmacy load of chemicals and go see it.. it'll make yer eyes melt..
after the movie, I went thru a random float around Rundle Street to see if there wuz any beer fueled excuse to piss on to the ridiculous ends of the night.. but.. for the first time in seemingly ages.. there wuz FUCKALL on.. absolute freaking nada.. I wuz actually kinda relived.. considering all the madness I survived from last weekend I wuz perfectly fine sitting this one out.. so.. with that in mind.. after catching the tail end of some band at ENIGMA (I think they were called SWAYBACK or something.. eh).. I grabbed the midnight bus and got the fuck out've there..SATURDAY NIGHT
Adelaide's most workaholic midget-film-noir-electro-funk band of late, MUNCHKIN had yet ANOTHER psychedelic gig at JIVE tonight.. so.. to make up for the total lack of alcohol from the night before.. and with nothing better to do I thought best to make an appearance and soak up some beers (well, seriously.. how can I say no to MUNCHKIN? do you want to make munchkin angry? they're like pirahna's maaan.. aauauauaah!).. damn good set them crazy kids had too.. the sound wuz really really good.. nice one.. oh, and apparently some other bands were playing (THE REST, and TRAFALGARS).. but I wuz too preoccupied at the time seeking revenge for all the games of foozball I lost on Thursday night.. (hey.. I actually WON a game! yay!) so I don't really have much to comment there..
afterwards we drifted aimlessly around various spots looking for some kinda beer fueled buzz (mostly to no avail).. tried SUPERMILD (too huge a fuck-off lineup), ENIGMA, ZHIVAGO's (too huge a fuck-off lineup), THE CRANKA, a brief plan to go to SHOTS (till we realised it wuz already closed at 4:30AM.. like.. wtf!?) and then finally some seriously dodgy 24/7 pub on North Tce at the end of it all which I wont even mention by name (aaah gotta love pokie machines.. *cough* ), considering the whole thing a bit of a drawn out adventure in mindlessness, I finally staggering home around 6AM..
yeah.. not much to report on this weekend.. I didn't break any records here.. but.. I think my shrivelled liver appreciated the effort.. ;)
next weekend.. I kill it off for good.. MUHAHAHAHAHHA!
