perthy poo


Milan makes me sick. he made me get up off of the couch because he wanted to take my picture with the stupid sunset. I was having the best time with the curtain shut, geeking out on my computer. He's always yelling at me and complaining. If I had a can of vegemite I'd throw it at his face and make him go to the emergency room then at least I wouldn't have to listen to him say "Come on, it's time for sound check" wawawa. But seriously folks Perth was absolutely fantabulistic (Hey if George Bush can say nukeyalur I can say fantabulistic) Perth reminded me of Baja California mixed with Mars. I remember when I was the first man to set foot on Mars, how freaked out everyone was. I hate it when people throw parades in my honor, especially ticker tape, it messes up my hair. Today I am in Melbourne and I'm going to go to yoga because I feel freaky deaky. I have had more cups of tea than a gnome in a crack house (do gnomes really drink tea? for that matter do they really smoke crack?)
Either way, I'm happy and I miss my mommy and daddy. waaaa
Please don't take my blankie away.

p.s. the reason this picture says may 17 2004 is because I am a time traveller and perth is a month ahead in the time zone. next month is really cool. I won American idol.

Great Pic Polio!
Can you tell me how the Pads will do (uh, did?) against the Cubs in May? And while you're at it, what's IBM trading at in May?
Do you lose your time travel passport if you use it for personal gain or are they cool with that?
Thanks in advance or the past,
Love, Loki

Hey Steve,
Is the gig in Canberra tomorrow night at Tilley's cancelled or what?

Posted by: Ella at April 20, 2004 3:35 AM

yes it is cancelled and i am really bummed. the lady who owns the bar cancelled at the last minute. who does that? she said the pre-sale tickets weren't high enough. i have always had a strong walk up crowd and i wanted to build a following in canberra. so now we are stuck with the plane flights and we only get part of the cash back. this is so weak on her part. i would play for only 8 people if i had to, i love what i do and the amount of people always grows in time,
sorry about that. you should complain to her.

Dear Steve,

That picture scares me. Is it that you've mastered the time space continuim? Is it simply that the bright pink of the sunset looks surreal? Or is it just that you remind me of the fellow in the Edvard Munch painting, but right after you've released The Scream?

Cancelled?! Cancelled you say?!
That sucks big time. But I must give you props on your spelling.

my mom hates this pic too. it scares her. you guys would get along. mrs p and ms p

Is there an e-mail address or a phone number for this "woman" who cancelled this show?

I say we all contact her, we can all say we were planning on attending whether we live in jersey or italy(she won't know)... If all do our part we can make her regret this decision for the rest of her life.

what an idiot.

Posted by: Carence at April 20, 2004 8:23 AM

i agree!
this is awful 4/20 news!

what idiot cancels a poltz shoe?

do you think she knows todd snider or something?

Posted by: mitch at April 20, 2004 11:38 AM

I'll call her from cali...what a nit wit ....such a behavior of the stagnet worm sort......wait...maybe she's really very nice and just doesn't realize the magnitude of such a foible...If she can hear and see how wonderful your fans are I'm sure she'll get her smarts back.....


Posted by: susan at April 20, 2004 11:59 AM

cancelling a shoe on 420? that bitch is off the brownie list!

it might be the picture though. i'd run like hell if i ran into this guy in a dark perth alley!
