Maxine McKew claims Bennelong!! More VICTORY!!! LOL!!!!

leave a comment »


It’s official. Maxine McKew (rhymes with ‘truck shoe’ in case you’re wondering) has ousted John Howard from the North Shore seat of Bennelong, which he has held for 33 years.


He could always challenge for the Victorian seat of Higgins. Should be up for grabs as soon as Goldman Sachs makes Peter Costello an offer.

an election date with John Howard – hawt!!

with 2 comments

Mmmmm yummy!! A good man is hard to find, so look no further girls and ladyboys. We’ve got a real hawtee for you today. Unfortunately the ad is a couple of years old but all the changes have been for the better. Less hair on the head for tangle-free thinking, more hair on the eyebrows for being taken really srsly internationally, and the invasion fetish may seem a bit subdued lately but only because he’s realized there are plenty of countries that can be invaded right here at home. . . and think of the fuel savings! Ready your Australia Card, he’s coming aboard…

Capture some carbon with Johnny Big Oil today – he’ll warm your globe, right after he’s inserted his vapid preamble given your future generations some lip service. Mmmmmmm, lip service.

APEC – 7 000+ take to Sydney streets – some pics

with 6 comments

For APEC highlights so far, this story’s quite cute (and accurate).

Otherwise, sit back and enjoy the ambience of a non-specific something-for-everybody public demo where the overzealous police ministers and the dumbass songsheet media might have actually not got what they were expecting for once. It works better if you can imagine a soundtrack something like *rabble rabble rabble rabble*. It was the most bloody Australian that Sydney’s been all week. Good on youse. 😉



interesting random fact: Hitler’s funky SS uniforms were designed by Hugo Boss. Truly.

APEC – Gulag Sydney sends hugs (and pics)

with 2 comments

Simple, clear, to the point. A single focused demo round this simple instruction would be awesome. My favourite sign at all of APEC so far.


Although this one’s also pretty catchy.

How bout that bloody eclipse, eh?

with one comment

Very very cool lining up of cosmic bodies.

Note to self – take tripod next time. Handheld long exposures across even relatively short segments of the galaxy: blargh. Despite partial fuzz, I think that in the second photo you can clearly see a monkey-snake holding its powerful monkey arms aloft to celebrate having just smashed up the batmobile – wreckage also visible. I think this picture clearly debunks The Permanent-Moon-Rabbit Theory.

This election – Vote for a BABE!!

with one comment

A new non-governmental lobby group was formed this week in response to months of sickeningly desperate media thespianism by Australian politicians. Babies Against Blatant Exploitation (B.A.B.E.) have sworn to puke, poop, pee, or keep parents awake with incessant screaming everytime that John Howard touches, kisses, or poses with an infant for the next four months. They say that they know now how their mothers feel because Howard is really getting on their tits.
While BABE is non-partisan, bookies have Howard as favourite at 4-3 being most likely to be the next politician to give babies the screaming shits.

I don’t know if I’m convinced – a keffiyeh with heavy makeup and hair dye? I reckon this clown works for the CIA. or ASIO. or Wackenhutt.

Love this photo and will be posting more pics and bits from The Deadly & Mysterious AH shortly. Until then,

The Amazing Lion – Buffalo – Crocodile Video

with 2 comments

May be the most amazing animal footage ever, may only be in the top 4.

Jawdropping in too many ways to bother raving about. Just watch and be astounded. Of course, if you’re one of the 8+ million people to have seen it in the last few weeks… well, you’ll probably want to see it again anyway.

Just absompletely brutiful!!!

Video Party to Celebrate 10 000th hit – bring popcorn!!

with 4 comments

The last thing we need to do is revalidate the obsession with decimal milestones. . . but I also figure 666 666 hits is a pipedream so please enjoy this passing moment in blogging hysteri-er-history.

It’s a good excuse to share one of the most beautiful bits of longform music video I’ve ever seen. Although you no doubt share my disdain for decimophilia, please oblige your ears, eyes, brain and soul with this little celebration feast.

Turn the lights right down, turn the volume way up, and set faces to stunned.

This is “We”.

and you think your mechanic sucks. . . . srsly. . wtf???…

with 2 comments

You may have been expecting a rant, but no. This is a serious sign on serious business. The phone number and address are badly blocked out because I thought doing otherwise might be rude. And that would hardly be fair – this mechanic is obviously all about client satisfaction, holding on to that disappearing ethos of ‘the customer always comes first’. The acid bath sounds harsh but apparently nobody will set your valves quite like these guys – and that’s crucial. The last thing you need is a leaky cylinder or a cracked head, but these dudes will really go the extra mile to make sure that even under heavy conditions, your engine won’t drop its load. Oh yeah – if they get finished early, it’s probaly your fault…


atrocious alternative puns & innuendos welcome, btw

Just one more reason for indifference to Christina Aguilera

with 25 comments

Yo – pleeeeease drop a line in ‘comments’ to lemme know where you all come from. This page has been getting a squillion browses a day and it’s got me curious. Muchas Gracias. Happy Agui-leering.

–September 30/07–

Hardly a day goes by without a new sonic, ideological, written, or visual reason to despise Christina Aguilera. While we can all applaud the use of nipples in comedy, this is just plagiarism.Think about it – always desperate for media attention and hoping for the kind of hype and public outrage that Janet Jackson unleashed on easily astounded Americans just a couple of years ago during the Superbowel, what does the unoriginal, clonetastic, anti-sounds-with-substance Christina NoSoul do?
