I don't tend to associate with the kind of people who proclaim to have no regrets. I figure if they don't have at least the potential to regret meeting me then they must not be very deep. - DRH

Well, Helloooooooooooooooo.........we are back from Latvija and times we were unsure it would be so......the meager shell of our rented Volkswagon seemed small protection against the suicidal determination of Baltic drivers.........holy shit.....never knew that dashed line dividing the middle of a road is actually a third lane.

more soon.........and thanks for sticking around.

I got to thinking about alien invasions and visitations the other day. Or maybe "alien introduction" would be better. Isn't it sad that the concept of "alien invasion" is pop but there's no ready word to describe when an alien race fills up the sky and lets us all know, more or less simulataneously, that they are here. Sure, there's stuff like "first contact" but that could just as well mean an elitist first encounter between the alien race and world leaders. Like, you know, George Bush 'n stuff.

But the semantics and nomenclature of it all really wasn't my focus. I was thinking about how hard it will be to get up the next day and go about business as usual. I think that would be a fairly universal human reaction. So, as a public service announcement for the human race aimed at this impending extra-terrestrial blow to the head I offer some simple suggestions:

Sure, chastise us for our naughty treatment of what surely must be a rare blue planet - we deserve it. We need to hear it just like a wild teen needs to hear her dad say to her "chill the fuck out!". But, here's the important part - be nice to us. Make us feel special. Tell us you're our biggest fans.

And Aliens, please do your homework. Don't just remind Salmon Rushdie that he's a great writer. Try to be more like Santa Claus or how believers want God to be. Take the time to send some messges to the "little people" - the dude whose manuscript just got rejected for the 3rd time. The homemaker wondering if his life has been for naught. The mathlete still in love with the frontier of unsolved equations.

Lie to us if you have to. Maybe when the trembling big haired Christians ask if there's a God just shrug your shoulders. Let it pass. Tell the Muslims you've heard rumours of "70-sum virgins" yourself but you can't verify it.

Tell little Jimme that was a good catch. Tell Jill that she IS pretty AND smart.

Tell us we're funny (in a good way). Tell us you could watch us all day. Please, don't stop. Etc.

And most of all.....Aliens, if you're listening - tell me, Dave Holtek, that I'm pretty good.

Even if you're lying.

Because it will make you want to sit in your own house on your own chair in a smart, crisp suit and tie.

Or perhaps he is on a job interview waiting in the lobbie consulting the Good Book for a last-minute pick-me-up. They say the boss can smell doubt at 50 yards.

Or perhaps, my good friend, he's waiting for you. That's right. waiting for you to come to your senses. To sit yourself down on that other comfy chair and grab the spare from the bottom shelf. You know, the one they keep around for wayward souls such as yourself. The one stained with the sweat of a 1000 doubters come before you. The converter bible. The big gun. The one aiming to blast those evil thoughts right out of your pink fucking brain.

That one.


  And how reassuring it is to know that we're all the products of incest. Actually, now that I think about it - that explains a lot.


Speaking of chairs


Meanwhile the beauty queen turf wars are heating up in this neck of the UK woods.

Stay tuned.

"sometimes I find I drift away behind a distant smile" - Ultravox



Used to be I could blame my man-boobs on pot. But now they say soy has loads of estrogen in it.
You know what that means for vegan boys - "Hey, tofu tits!"


Sullen, swarth-soaked saltflesh
Resined with essential unctuous meat oil Smears me in passing
Heating my loins but
Cooling my flesh, evaporatively.
