INTERNATIONAL PUPPET CARNIVAL

Melbourne 2006, Federation Square till 2nd july.

Does this tickle anybody's fancy? ... Hope so, cause i want you to come and check it out with me.

''Be prepared to be amazed, delighted, tickled, even shocked, possibly offended and definitely surprised by puppets.''

To check out the specks go to www.internationalpuppetcarnival.com.au

Please let me know your availability and/or interest. I'm available and happy to drive in Thur/Fri/Sat or Sun. There are entrance fees to all shows, some are only short, and therefore a bit cheeper! Although I think it will be good fun to see, and we can support this fesival in its 1st year.

Blowing my own trumpet

Hi all,

Just wanted to draw your attention to the newest addition in the 'othercoolppl' section (see sidedar).

I have recently started a 'Humour Archive' in the vague hope that it will help me get into, and start writing, my thesis (which, for all of you who don't already know, is on 'Indonesian Religious Humour' - random? yeah, I know!).

Would love your feed back/comments. Including if there are any typos/grammatical errors.

Thanx.

Luke's band has a gig. And I can now edit posts!

From the last post you might have guessed that my band, which is currently nameless has gig on Thursday at Q club(or Bar) on Brunswick Street. If you would like to come I would like to see you. It starts at 8 with a support act and we go on at about 9:30, 10 ish I would imagine.

Hope to see you there.

Luke

Undecane's next gig.

Yes we bitch an moan about them (you're up with the best of them Willum). But I seem to have a penchant for pimping my friends' bands (just ask Erica).

So here it is - the next undecane giggeroonie:

For anyone who can commit this to memory...

This one's mainly for Fanboy, but I hope you all enjoy....


Ballade of Soporific Absorption

Ho! Ho! Yes! Yes! It's very all well,
You may drunk I am think, but I tell you I'm not,
I'm as sound as a fiddle and fit as a bell,
And stable quite ill to see what's what.
I under do stand you surprise a got
When I headed my smear with gooseberry jam;
And I've swallowed, I grant, a beer of lot -
But I'm not so think as you drunk I am.

Can I liquor my stand? Why, yes, like hell!
I care not how many a tossed I've pot,
I shall stralk quite weight and not yutter an ell,
My feech will not spalter the least little jot:
If you knownly had own! - well, I gave him a dot,
And I said to him, 'Sergeant, I'll come like a lamb -
The floor it seems like a storm in a yacht,
But I'm not so think as you drunk I am.

For example, to prove it I'll tale you a tell -
I once knew a fellow named Apricot -
I'm sorry, I just chair over a fell -
A trifle - this chap, on a very day hot -
If I hadn't consumed that last whisky of tot! -
As I said now, this fellow, called Abraham -
Ah? One more? Since it's you! Just a do me will spot -
But I'm not so think as you drunk I am.

Envoi

So, Prince, you suggest I've bolted my shot?
Well, like what you say, and soul your damn!
I'm an upple litset by the talk you rot -
But I'm not so think as you drunk I am.

Sir. J.C. Squire (1884-1958)
