I wanna bitch about something else.

About bushfires, and climate change, and bludgers on welfare. About fuckwits who paddle up the inside and expect the next set. And fuckwit Sydneysiders who carpool down to the point on the day of the season - I simply cant wait to bitch about them again.

I’ve got a good mate. I lent this person some wax with the belief that he would use it for a SINGLE application before we paddled out for that one session.

I never saw the wax again.

Who steals a man’s wax ?

To be honest , the wax could’ve rolled under the seat and I never checked and sold the car not long after. What to believe ?

Annnggggeeerrrr !!!!!!

Is that the vibe you’re chasing, Stu. I’ve got plenty more.

For instance.....I’ve got a good mate. I lent this person a legrope etc

It 'could've' rolled under the seat, or you could detonate a lifelong friendship with wild accusations and fabrications, and let's face it, that could feel really good.

Take that bitch down!

My mate left a porn mag under the seat of his car when he dropped it off for a service.... that arvo, no more porno.
Under the seat can be a bit of a black hole, but goddam mechanics!

Ha! I was so distracted by bloody CV that I didn't tear into ol' PB.

That was some twisted uber-progressive shaming going on. I would've admired the creativity in joining disparate dots to bind a very flimsy argument, except of course that I was the one in his cross-hairs.

Silly old fuckwit that he is.

Cut and paste that one into your website, Pete.

Would have just preferred it was a nostalgia thread, rather than a thread to bitch in, no shortage of those around here.

Anyway here's some nostalgia.

I use to love this show as a kid, watch it and then go play outside with metal staff/poles wrapped in electrical tape, running around having fights with our staffs until someone got hurt and ran home crying.

Then we would do it all again next week.

"The past is a foreign country; they do things differently there."

Salad days. 6 - 6.30 week days. The Goodies then Dr. Who (with Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker). And then along came this weird Japanese show in the old familiar timeslot. WTF? But it grew on us. So much so I can still karaoke the Monkey theme and end title songs.

But never go back.

Well, not Monkey anyway.

A mate bought a box set of Kingswood Country a while back, aglow with nostalgia, and it was a dismal and devastating embarrassment for him.

Some things are best left back there somewhere.

We met at a party of a friend of a friend and from the getgo we got on very well. Upfront and to the point she whispered into my ear,

"First up sex on the first night is not hoeing. It's an interview, and if I call you tomorrow.......you've got the job."

As kids we shared a smorgasbord with Torvill & Dean the skaters, and bro once in the footy crowd got WCE forward Glen Jackovitch to personally pull the finger at him from on field...
Apparently I was once standing right next to the Black Eyed Peas in a hotel lobby and I didn't recognise them at all, had to be told later. I live under a rock when it comes to music post 1997.

The first record i ever got as a kid and the first song i became obsessed with, everything was kiss, show bags, posters on the wall, even use to get mum to paint my face like Gene's.

Cant say i really get into them these days though, to be honest apart from a few songs i think it was all the gimmicks that got me as a kid.

AndyM that's the one that kills me the most.

You know what else shits me? That food plastic food packaging that wants you to rip it open, and either:
- you try to just rip the corner bit off and it motherfucken tears halfway down the side, spilling the contents and/or so you can't close it anymore and have to transfer to a tupperware. Cereal and oats bags are prone to these.
- or it's the supposedly pull apart in the middle kind but it just won't pull apart easily so you incrementally give it some more oomf by 5% each time and it still won't go so you so tell yaself "alright then, I'll give 50% more" then fucken BLAM the fucken thing skips to spreading wide open like a stripper that just wants to get things over with at her third Buck's party for the night....and the contents just spray everywhere over your shirt and kitchen floor....I think I'm still talking about spiral pasta at this point.

Must have if Pup knows, so...

After twenty years of 'Dynasty' sitting in the back of the record collection gathering dust I got it out, opened the sleeve and an envelope fell out:

I hadn't seen it before, or at least I couldn't remember it, but I opened it up and read the letter inside:

Am I a fan of KISS?

To answer that I'll point you to the last line: "I play Dynasty nearly every day, even school days."

Who knows how close you could’ve got to your idols if you’d actually sent the letter ? They might have sent a stretch limo and you could’ve hung out with them all night after the show.

Thank your lucky stars you weren’t a Gary Glitter fan or else he probably would’ve been hanging out of you after the show.

Unreal Stu. Send old mate Gene a copy, and next time he's in Oz, well, who knows :)
In the spirit of fandom, I have fond memories of Thursday nights and Saturday mornings when the 'olds' had gone to work.

My brother is a few years older, had just started working, and was always keen to spend his hard-earned BHP apprentice boiler-maker coke-oven DI* on some of the latest albums. A Kiss fan he was, and so was I.

As a pre-pubescent teenager there was nothing more enjoyable than cranking out a few of the tunes from Dynasty. This one was and is deffo one of my faves.

Yeah, Indo. Truly one of those WTF moments.

Rang my Mum and said thanks, but also let her know she betrayed the trust of an 8-year old by not posting the damn letter.

Other KISS stuff: A few years ago I was drinking late at a bar in Club Tattersalls for some reason that escapes me now, bucks party or something. The bar maid was named Shandy and she told a very convincing tale that she was the namesake of the KISS song of the same name. She was an old rock hag. Coulda been true.

I had fave songs on that album, including 'Sure Know Something' but it was only later I took to '2,000 Man' and my estimation of KISS went up a few notches when I realised it was an obscure Stones song; a weird entry from the Stones only weird album, but sung perfectly by Ace.

Ok, It's 6:45 and I've got a beer after a late arvo paddle on a beautiful autumn day.
Can't comment on nostalgic bitchin or Kiss, either are of little interest to me but I can say
1. tail gaters
2.people that are oblivious to others
3. the fucken mob that decended on the South Coast today, even after the official word from SN to stay home ( will they ever listen ),,,,,the wife heard all about that after the 1st carpark visit and the 2nd, fortunately the 3rd time around most of them had gone back to Adelaide and I'm feeling much happier
4. Slow internet and pages that don't load, but I'm not alone there and there's more of that to come
5.Peoples obsession with wiping their arses
6.Heads of countries that are failures and not up to the job
7.Facebook
On the 2nd beer now and have lost interest in bitching but there's more, however that'll do....it's good to vent.

Christine Sixteen is a Kiss song that might raise a few eyebrows these days.
Peter Whatsisname would love it.
She's been around, but she's young and clean??
Holy shit.

"She's got me dizzy, she sees me through to the end
She's got me in her hands and there's no use in pretending

Christine sixteen, Christine sixteen

She drives me crazy, I want to give her all I've got
And she's hot every day and night, there is no doubt about it

Christine sixteen, Christine sixteen

I don't usually say things like this to girls your age
But when I saw you coming out of the school that day
That day I knew, I knew (Christine sixteen)
I've got to have you, I've got to have you

She's been around, but she's young and clean
I've got to have her, can't live without her, whoa no"
