06:03 pm - Hey true blue
Is it me and you?

Is it mum and dad?

Is it a cockatoo?

What sort of goddamn lyrics are these? Obviously designed for the terribly jingoistic amongst us, all of whom wept at Steve Irwin's televised memorial and sung live by John Williams.

Nothing could have been more Australian than that.

Give us a home among the gum trees, with lots of plum trees, a sheep or two and a kangaroo. Koalas up the side, and veggies by the fence, all in Burke's Backyard.

I think I shall retch up my McDonalds McDinner now.

well who's feeling cynical today? -->you are;)

kerrie and i saw the memorial and were moved by it. did you see it?

i realised he was very in tune with animals (neurogenetic circuit actualisation) and was able to communicate that, especially to children (neurogenetic transmission).

it was amazing the way the elephants were aware of what was going on around them with all the people in the memorial.

i've been thinking i've been too cynical lately, criticising and plain bitching about stuff (mainly stuff on tv like david koch). it's not not good, not open-hearted ~

kevin costner in the memorial said steve irwin was brave not only with dangerous animals, but also to show his emotions even as people would mimic and mock him.

looking forward to seeing you on the 30th!
