This electronic smugglepot of candid flamebix is in the process of being carved out of lavander solar grits.
The album ‘In Bed With My Doona’ featuring ‘I’m so postmodern’ is now available in all good record emporiums. (You might have to convince the indie maestro behind the counter that it exists – if you’re feeling cheeky, try and pick them up – buying my album creates a window…c’mon…)

TOP 10 POTENTIALLY SUCCESFUL ANTI-SMOKING WARNING LABELS
1. Smoking causes random chest pains that you keep writing off as indigestion cos youve got the grandiose arrogance of a typical twenty something and you think you can live forever you big poo basket.
2. Smoking only looks cool if you look cool to start with.
3. Smoking causes you to carry a haze of pungency, causing strangers to resent you.
4. Smoking is fun size suicide.
5. Smoking causes your potential non smoking partner to not enjoy kissing you as much and if its down to you and someone else, your odds are as skanky as that bile stick you cradle to like some self-defeatist thumb sucking replacement.
6. Smoking, that old chestnut.
7. Smoking is so 1996.
8. Youll bung your lungs, cough Whitlam!
9. If vital organs could talk!
10. Look, just cut it out please!
In the meantime – this is some gigs I’z gonna do.
Remember, you are an infinite rainbow spacebag of cosmic yay! yay! Life is precious. Get a wriggle on pooglet!
