drinking

I didn’t want to go t Peacock by myself so I called Terry. We got stoned in the car and went to Wilfongs. Meet some girl and got her number. Show was alright. I wanna try and take over Locust Projects with some Orlando stuff. I’m tired. Went by Peacock, saw Kevin play. They were real good. Talked to Matt Gourney for a second, nothing much. Talked to Ilyana, going over to fix her computer. Wants my thoughts on her art. Good stuff, with the popular juxtaposion, where the image seems an icon that creates a difference between the sorrundings. Calls attention to the images, makes you aware of semoitic and how infused the sign is in our lives, etc. Talked to someone else too. Fred left to chase Sheila. Wished Laura showed up for some reason. Went home, ran into roommate and her boyfriend. Went to dinner with them at Patzio’s. good day.

I wish I could travel back and hear beefheart, when he was just beefheart. Big Eyed Beans from Venus has a way of sounding acessible, yet beefheart. It’s like acid somehow, with an energy all it’s own. Way back yonder Don was just Don, now he’s beefheart. There’s something lost in the way that we now have Jad Fair and an industry of punk “outsiders” that are all talentless in the most unique ways, Don was not talentless, if anything he excelled in the most unusual ways, but so much of the magic band has been appropraited to the point that it’s lost part of what made it the magic band. If anything, we relentlessly pace history’s roads trout masks over our coats, making the roads that were not meant to be trampled lest they loose their essence, chalks of concrete suitable for anyone to travel over. The post-modern is not an enigma, but a movement that rips enigmas from the systems that made them nosferatu, and turns them into begin cartoons unable to draw blood. It makes me feel like I should start a band, not to mix and match, but to yell with the voices that inhabit us all in frownland.

Government urges under-16s to experiment with oral sex
By Glen Owen, Education Correspondent

A GOVERNMENT-backed course is encouraging pupils under 16 to experiment with oral sex, as part of a drive to cut rates of teenage pregnancy. Family campaigners believe that the course, called A Pause, is having the reverse effect by exciting the sexual interest of children. The scheme, which has been pioneered by Exeter University and is backed by the Departments of Health and Education, trains teachers to discuss various pre-sex “stopping points” with under-age teenagers. It aims to reduce promiscuity by encouraging pupils to discover “levels of intimacy”, including oral sex, instead of full sexual intercourse. More than 100,000 children are now taking the course at one in every thirty secondary schools. It forms part of efforts to tackle Britain’s teenage pregnancy rate, which is the highest in Western Europe.

Robert Whelan, director of the Family Education Trust, said he hoped that the Sexual Offences Bill, currently going through the House of Lords, would lead to the course being banned. A provision in the Bill would make it an offence for anyone to “arrange or facilitate the commission of a child sex offence”.

He said: “I don’t think anyone believes that teaching pupils about oral sex will stop them having full sex — it is more likely to make them want to try it, and it doesn’t protect them from sexually transmitted diseases.”

John Rees, programme manager for A Pause, said that he was keen to teach children that “it is acceptable simply to hold hands” and to discover different levels of intimacy.

“We make it clear that there are many ways to manage relationships — that it doesn’t all have to be about full sex,” he said. He added that he was “very worried” that the Bill would end the scheme.

Lynda Brine, a teacher from a Doncaster comprehensive who recently attended a training day for the course, says in today’s Times Educational Supplement that she was primed to deal with detailed questions about oral and anal sex. “I was amazed. Are these really the sort of questions to which we as a profession should be responding?” she writes.

“There was no framework for talking about responsibility or the emotional side of relationships. By following this course, I feel that teachers are implicitly supporting under-age sexual activity.”

looks

I’ve been noticing as of late the high proposenity of attractive women around me. I walked into Park Ave and stood next to the most beautiful girl. I said one thing to her about where is the staff in this store, which was supposed to be ironic, and she pointed to whomever was standing around finding a CD for her. That was it. On Sunday I was next to another beautiful girl, and she turned up at Fran’s party a few days later. I talked to her for a second and it was fun, at which point some guy comes in and says” I’ve been waiting for you for hours”, thinking this guy is her latest stalker I say to her, “you see the devotion your getting?” at which point he goes, “well she is my girlfriend.” It seemed like she actually delayed her entrance to the party to try and avoid him. They kissed quickly and he left. He seemed like a complete dork. Faults with her: she’s a little to cool, will probably write me off but ya never know. It’s occured to me as of late that I don’t inspire women the way other men do. In a few instances I’ve had the entranced crushee, but for the most pary only one girl I ever was involved with showed up to a show I was playing at. I only notice this, becuase at Stardust your crowd is usually girlfriends. And this does make me wonder, what element am I lacking that I’m not involved with anyone. I’ve wondered this before, and Amanda Colbenson told me I’ve had girlfriends, which is true (although none of them ever referred to me as their boyfriend), but not of the variety that stays over often and follows you to shows. I need a groupie not a girlfriend.
I feel like I’m collecting women now. Waying down what am I up to, trying to break into that scene where all the beautiful women hang out. I like arty girls, not skinny gallery rats, but the full blooded types that haunt the BBQ Bar and Backbooth. I like hipsters. I don’t know why I prefer that strain of women to others, perhaps we’re both looking for something different, maybe we grew up loving Mark Twain clay-mations (yeah E.J. that was very cute) or perhaps some wiring way down in the social-family structure, a quark in the essence of our physcology’s fired some similar way. My answer to all of this: I need to dress better. Yeah, that makes sense. I feel re-affirmed in my purpose here on Earth.
