Why am I cursed?

oh man.

I'm so sick.

Damn you New Years CurseTM.

Damn you to hell!!

At least I'm not at the hospital... yet... :D

Thursday, December 30, 2004

24 hours to go til new years...

And when you consider that my last 2 New Years Eves have been spent in hospital, I'm hoping that nothing happens this time...

2 Years ago, I spent the time in hospital due to little Bu's birth...

Last year, I was getting an air pocket drained from the ol lung cavity... lousy lungs.

So this year, it's gunna go right. Right damn it.

oh, and if you do the math, it means Bu turns 2 in 24ish hours...

Stop by, wish her a happy day.

The Simpsons: Hit and Run.

iieee. This game was fun. Now it is finished.

Woo. Finished.

Now I can start playing Morrowind to sate a Certain Bloggers secret, deepest desires... ;)

And to quote Jo: "The Morrowind travisty begins..."

Shit! shit! shit! And More Craaaaaap

Ok, today I gave in to the ad that yells at you about it's Bras bras bras and g-striiiings. They got this, they got that, all new for a fraction of the price. The kicker though was 2-3 thousand dollar rugs, 80 Bucks!.

Needless to say, the ad lies. It lies like a damned fiend. And needless to say, we didn't pick up a rug. Or a bra. Or a g-string.

We did however put our new zoo memberships to good use on the way home. Woo. Go the zoo. We saw the big cats. Then we saw the little cats. Then we saw the giraffes and we weren't gunna see the elephants... But then we did!! And Bu loved it. Especially the Elephants. And the turtles. And the pelicans. And the ducks. Pelicans?? Ducks??! WTF?

Elephants, they're cool. You go to the zoo to see them.
Tigers. cool.
Monkeys. Cool.

Pelicans? I think we've seriously done something wrong raising this one...

Eh, what can you do... I couldn't imagine that it was *us* that broke her... Just cause I love teaching her little wierd catch phrases.

Like: Cheeeee Tzu
And: Laa-di laa-di laa-di laa-di Pooeee

Oh, and I'll start posting more regularly when work starts again... IN 10 DAYS!! Suckers :P

It's Christmas time...

So we all need to reflect on the fact that, not taking into account the calander changes since, 2004 years ago, Santa was born. In the dead of winter... I guess that's why he likes the North Pole.

Anyways, Merry Christmas to you all.

And Mileah,

Oh, and Quilly has an excellent post up for those looking for some background...

And to continue the Christmas theme which is December...

Speedy Santa.

Who woulda thought Santa had such a diverse social life...

Remember that game...

Where you were the red square and you had to dodge the black squares?

If you liked that, go try your luck at


Though I have to say, I prefered the simplicity of the square on square action version...

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

And santa needs to clear all the snow off the roads...


Snow plow Santa.

But not literally... :D

Ok... so 2004 is winding up... so...

Bring on the top ten lists...

Top ten Hoaxs of 2004

And all I can say is CAMEL SPIDERS!!! I'm gunna have nightmares for days now...

hmmm... I never though I would read the following quote in the news paper...

The four victims wondered if the girl they were told they were having sex with for three years was, in fact, Stephen Hill.
I'm glad he's going to prison though...

Slay the mushrooms with your mighty penis.

Ok, so really it's a sword...

You'll see what I mean...

Sunday, December 19, 2004

Ok, well last night was a first.

I went to the Belgum Beer Garden Cafe place, which wasn't the "first".

Now Jo wanted a Bundy and Coke. Which again, wasn't the first.

I tried to explain that we were in a beer garden and that you should drink beer in a beer garden. But no, she would have none of that.

So here comes the first.

When I got in cue to by a "non-beer" drink it was day time. When I got out of the lin, it was night.

It when from day to night while I was waiting in line for a drink.

Needless to say, I'm never buying Jo a non-beer drink from there again.

Saturday, December 18, 2004

I have a question and a statement...

You know those environment friendly lights?

Does anyone else feel that they're sucking out your eyeballs?

Lets put it to a vote.

Cause I can tell you that Jo thinks they will destroy us all...

I sure you have all read the latest...

from Grahams

And his stories of a briefcase...

I just thought I would tell you about mine...

Like Graham, I got an email from Severus asking me to hold onto something for him.

I then got the following

7-11, corner Elizabeth and Franklin, midday Saturday Dec. 11

Silver briefcase with black corners

Now, for those who do know, Elizabeth and Franklin cross right in the middle of the Queen Vic Market. Due to the high volume of traffic that would be walking past, I assumed I would be meeting somebody. I had hoped it would be Iocus himself, though I spose that would be a little ambitious of me...

So anyway, Off I head down to the Vic. Traffic was a killer and I wound up a good 10 minutes late. I did drive past at 12 while looking for the park though and saw a woman standing there. With a silver briefcase. with black corners.

I found a park a ran as fast as I could to meet this mysterious woman, while simultaniously trying to attach me Neurocam signifier. I arrived on the corner. I said Hi, she said hello, gave me the briefcase and walked away. The strangest thing is that I couldn't put an age on her. Were I asked I would have to tick the 24-40 box... But then I'm bad with judging age so hey what can you do.

So that was that, (oh Jo picked up a kitten from the market, but that is for a different post).

So I got home and again, like Graham I got an email titled: Neurocam Assignment NCI-4351/02.

The basic outlay was to deliver this briefcase to an operative by the name of YellowHelix.

We ended up making the exchange at Federation Square. I had to duck out of work to return the "briefcase a mate left at my house". I made the exchange with a pretty young lass who was more than happy to take a few happy snaps as proof of delivery.

And that was it. The parcel was delivered.

Oh and YellowHelix, two things. Firstly, if you want me to take the picture down, let me know. Secondly. You know bond right? remember his number?

Just a small thing on the Neurocam article...

Although it mentions the "Kiwi Transvestite", It never mentions Shelly Innocence

Does everyone remember Shelly Innocence?

She was selling happyness.

Remember the "Happiness meter" at Flinders St. Station?

Remember the 5 strategically placed billboards placed around Melbourne?

There has been a lot of effort put into Neurocam.

And this is just a guess, but I'm sure that it is more that you could imagine...

Wow. I got hit by...

The spikeTM

And until I read Tript this morning, I had no idea why.

Apparently it is because of my interaction with a certain shady underground organisation, Neurocam

And the fact the The age has picked up on it.

Go have a read, though I'm sure the majority of readers arriving here today will have come from there...

I feel I should say something, but I just got up so I'll leave you with this.

Get out of your mind.

Ok... so now I'm a catblogger...

Well maybe more of a kitten blogger.

As I mentioned in a previous post, We got ourselves a kitten this past week.

Well Jo got us a kitten, but that is besides the point...

And here she is.

Image Hosted by The Image Hosting

It's a very sad story for her. Apparently she was dumped at a pet stall in the Vic market with two other kittens. In a plastic bag. Tied at the top.

Just like superted, thrown out like a piece of rubbish.

Or a piece of Trash perhaps.

So we've called her Paris.

*ba dum* *ch*

Bu is not yet 2...

But she just dropped the f word for the first time



(Updated and expletives removed...)

I've just seen saw

And I gotta say, I was one of the most scareafying movies I've ever seen. It just didn't stop. It was scary and suspensful ALL THE DAMN TIME.

It's definitely worth the cash to see and highly recommended.

Just don't plan on sleeping afterwards...

I give it 17 thumbs up.

hhmmm... This game looks like it could be fun...

Foundation Game.

It also looks like a heap of effort. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

It's not a great game...

But the higher you score, the more they donate to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

Go give it your best

Thursday, December 16, 2004

Game where you can't read the rules...

Are always the best...

Though I don't know why they take their pants off at the end...

Wednesday, December 15, 2004

When I saw this...

All I could think of were the words.

"Remember me!"


Jo, can I be a lord?

xade, Lord of Glencairn

It has a nice ring to it don't ya think?

Slither slither slither slither went the tongue

"But the hand that was what she tried to concentrate on, the hand, since it has the entire terrain of her torso to explore and not just the otorhinolaryngological caverns -- oh God, it was not just at the border where the flesh of the breast joins the pectoral sheath of the chest -- no, the hand was cupping her entire right -- Now!"
I sure hope that nobody finds this site while searching for "otorhinolaryngological caverns"

The world is a-buzz about Neurocam...

I've just been reading around about what people have been saying about Neurocam.

This musing amuses me...

In particular...
"Well spotted, a very astute observation and very relevant to what we are trying to do with Neurocam. I am up to page 385 (The book was in fact recommended to me by one of our conceptual advisers) and it only gets better. I hope I have not given away too much by giving you this suggested reading. There is a chapter where Conchis is talking about a new kind of theatre where there is in fact no audience which is extremely interesting, especially when considering the work of artists like Peter Burke, Robin Hely and Jason Maling. However I still stress that art or even theatre is not the key to Neurocam."

http://www.new-media.com.au/index2.htm ("who is robert henley?")
http://capcoincidence.blogspot.com/ : "If you can't read the detail then let me assure you that the billboard reads: "Get Out Of Your Mind. www.neurocam.com".
Needless to say I almost fell over with shock. I snapped this photo with the camera on my mobile phone (hence the poor quality... sorry) and immediately ran home to make this post.
Has anybody else seen this billboard? Are there any others in other locations? What does this mean for Neurocam?
At the very least, I guess this means there are about to be a whole lot more people following the orders of Bridget Fischer and co..." (& more)

I'm amused that our friend Bran is getting a mention, when I, xade, the guy whos picture you can find as part of the tesstimonials, gets nothing!.

Where's my fame and fortune dag-nam-it!. :D


I'm generally not a fan of fighting games, but having said that, when you don't understand the rules, it can be a heck of a lot of fun.

Crazy ascii fighting ascii things.

oh, and your keys are...

Light punch: z
middle punch: x
heavy punch: c

Have fun.

And you comic fan...

A clog where A guy reads comics... and makes witty commentry

I love it if only for the oil slick comment.

uten spiel

This game is fun. You gotta get the packages. And you have to deliver them to the right places and you gotta watch out for the time limit. And although it doesn't sound like fun. It really is...

go on, give it a bash...

perhaps you like racing cars?

Personnally, I don't...

But if someone can beat this thing, or at least crash that damned orange one into the walk, I'll be a happy man...

Monday, December 13, 2004

I started this blog for 3 reasons...

One of those goals has been checked off.

The second involves winning a "Best new blog" award at one of those blogmaniapimp things that come around at this time of the year.

What's that you say... The BoB awards are happening...

How convienient... ;)

Man, Scott is on a roll this Christmas.

I think that after todays little excursion, perhaps we really should meet in the "cone of silence"

Thursday, December 09, 2004

Woot. I got suction.

I'm like a hoover now...

And before the "Yeah you really suck" type jokes start...

Go sign up


I'll promise not to bite ya...

(ok, that's a dirty rotten lie.)

Have you ever wondered what's going on inside...

A cartoon character...

Well wonder no more...

And I have to say, the powerpuff girls are creeping me out even more now...

Wednesday, December 08, 2004

I feel the need to say something, cause I've been neglecting this blog...

So I'll speak of Neurocam.

There seems to be an awful lot going on at the moment.

From the signing up of a heck of a lot of new members.

To emails from old friend of which I cannot speak.

Yep. Certainly a lot going on.

Oh, and an amusing side note, the other day I met a Neurocam operative while he was retrieving his package from the latest assignment.

If you are that guy and you're reading this. Hey. how are ya. See that pic below... That's one of the ones I was talking about.

Have fun everyone and curse my work for being so damn busy.

Ah, I'm kiddin', you're alright.

Where's the outrage!

Their reports were disputed by several Pentagon spokesmen who said no such bombs were used nor did the United States have any napalm weapons.

The Pentagon destroyed its stockpile of napalm canisters, which had been stored near Camp Pendleton at the Fallbrook Naval Weapons Station, in April 2001.

Yesterday military spokesmen described what they see as the distinction between the two types of incendiary bombs. They said mixture used in modern firebombs is a less harmful mixture than Vietnam War-era napalm.

"This additive has significantly less of an impact on the environment," wrote Marine spokesman Col. Michael Daily, in an e-mailed information sheet provided by the Pentagon.

He added, "many folks (out of habit) refer to the Mark 77 as 'napalm' because its effect upon the target is remarkably similar."

In the e-mail, Daily also acknowledged that firebombs were dropped near Safwan Hill.
Just because it does less damage to the enviroment, it doesn't mean it does less damage to its victims... Remember Vietnam?

And I ask again, where's the outrage?

Seriously, this makes me really angry. "No, we didn't stab him in the eye"... "Oh, you didn't ask if we stabbed him in the face". Fucking semantic bullshit.

Wednesday, December 01, 2004

So it's the first day of summer...

And after a week of above 30 degree days leading up to it...

It's raining.

You have to love Melbourne weather...

Oh Grump, you do crack me up...

Cause it's Just not cricket.

Tee hee... oh, and don't forget to read the rules...
