Visit Chief Wiggles and Christopher Johnson at their dandy new digs. And check out Jihad Against America, a punkoid Melbourne band featuring Tim B. Liar mastermind Ben Butler. Regular readers will remember Ben’s appearances in comments under the name “Bon Scott”. This might be Ben in full rock mode. Go Ben! As one of his fans says, “At least Ben has the balls to write under his real name, unlike the rest of us ...” True. But sometimes he just needs a little encouragement.

Goddam, I knew, just knew the Tim B. Liar blog was mine, especially when I started posting schizophrenically to this blog to annoy myself and make myself go away.

Alas, this dead rock star is exposed.

I guess I'll just have to start picking on the next annoying prat. Bon's gone, sphincter's puckered, Mork's sounding more and more earth-bound each day . . . .

I just read what everyone said about me on the mononet site, and guess what, I do write for The Big Issue, the magazine for people who'd rather do a good deed than have a good read.

Thanks for the link to monsieur B. Liar. Nice to pop over there and see that it's still up and running. The signs indicate that his obsession with you is growing stronger. Cute. Maybe JAA will write a song about you.

I have to admit that he's got you on the Berlusconi bit. I warned you not to gush about Silvio.

Liar didn't like that Ralph Peters piece on the World Bank's hypocracy one bit though. He becomes unintentionally hilarious by quoting Peter's use of the phase "International Bankers" to imply that the Peters was resorting to coded anti-Semitic rhetoric. This is classic bllinkered Leftyism: the idea that the phrase "International Bankers" would have sinister connotations in an article about the, you know, World Bank. Brilliant.

Hey, wait a minute. I thought the moonbats hated the World Bank too. You'd think they'd love an article attacking its leadership. But perhaps I'm giving them too much credit in assuming that they'd be interested in principles and consistency.

I knew he'd be some little pasty, blubbery, goatee sporting student newspaper-looking motherfucker.

Speaking of that, what's the fund up to?

We're on about $42, Charles. Close to the total take for his last show, by the looks of things.

Hey Tim, I think Bon Scotty is right. You are realy starting to slack off here. He updates his site more than you do for Christ's sake.

Maybe you could use this to your advantage. If you have to do any big calculations or formulas, post them... he'll check the math for ya. Probably work as a spell checker too.

sphincter's gone because Tim banned him. Shame really, as it's always interesting to have a raving lefty. Nothing sells like conflict Timbo.

Apart from sex!

I don't live too far from the Espy to come down and heckle these tossers, any other takers? Once we know when they're playing we could get together, drink beer and hang more shit on a band already at full capcity on the shit meter.

Now for a fashion sledge - did you notice that t-shirt, the backwards cap? For God's sake, stop shopping at St. Vinnies! Even Metallica gave that crap look up years ago. That guy with the "keyboard", what's his story? He must be there to fill up space?

The Big Issue is a fine way to get some people on seriously hard times to make a buck but don't keep telling people you contribute - you'll half the circulation in a week.

Interesting to see Jake D looking for "any other takers" for his jihad-heckling project. If you need to be team-handed to heckle, who is the "tosser"?

How did the dweeb-rebels latch onto the semi-hot lead singer?
