email conversations

You've all ready seen this...
Flat Earth Society FAQ

Freaky weird.

I think this may be the best BBS I've ever stumbled across.

You're a masochist.

No, you are.

No, I'm a sadist.

Now you've hurt my feelings

My work here is done.

How's the dog?

Free to a good home...

Sorry, we just invested in heaters.

He'd make a good draught strip.

You sure he hasn't got any gaps?
What else is he good for?


Is "draught strip" an NZ term? I'm assuming you're referring to a door snake.

NZ doesn't have snakes.
But does have.. err.. strippers...

So NZ is in denial about its snakes, I see.

Denial is in Egypt.

Apparently Denial proves FET

I'd say all it proves is crocodiles.

Crocodiles in denial? I don't think so.

Why do you think they cry so much?

Because they touch themselves at night?

Because they CAN'T - arms too stubby.

I wish I had photoshop right now

I, strangely, am glad you don't.

siren call

So I've been obsessing over the lyrics of an early 80s cover of an early 70s song. Hey, I work for the public service - you have to find your own fun.

Song to the Siren by This Mortal Coil from 1984 is a cover of a Tim Buckley song and, like many notable covers, has become the definitive version. It has haunted me since I first heard it and sparked a lengthy and passionate love of Cocteau Twins and especially Elizabeth Fraser's vocals/lyrics/whatever you call them.

Ahhh.. crap. There I was writing and googling about dissecting the song's lyrics and meaning and stuff and this guy goes and completely blows me out of the water. Two and a half years ago too.

The internet sucks - it lets you know rather too quickly just how unoriginal you really are.
