By the time I got to the MCG, the whole ANZAC Day thing was giving me the shits. This year's ANZAC week was way way way over the top. Until now, the ANZAC message was simple: war is evil; respect diggers; fighting another country's war is a mug's game; and all war is evil. 2005's ANZAC Day seemed to be all about celebrating 'fallen heroes' and showing hate for anyone who dares to question Iraq, terror and myth. I wanted to yell something out during the silence like, "No more war!" but I was more interested in getting a good spot.

Yep, I got this letter published in The Age yesterday. It was the headline letter in the politics bit of And Another Thing.

Um. Mate. Great corpse-paint and all but...ah... Your fly's undone.
This picture of Abbath (real name) of black metal band, Immortal was a late inclusion into Ruthless' brillo Top Ten List of Most Ridiculous Black Metal Pics of All Time.
Sure, Abbath is a scary name. The bloke who collected the photos is called...wait for it.... deep breaths... Mike From Hobart. Boo!
Mike From Hobart loves his metal and writes stuff which makes me laugh out loud. Check some of his writing here.

I'm hurting. Collingwood are playing badly and I no longer live 254 metres from our homeground, Victoria Park.
So I don't bore non-football Nightwatchman fans with my hapless Magpies, I've decided to keep all my incoherant footy rants to a new page called Victoria Park.
http://victoriapark.blogspot.com where there's no fat presidents. No corporate sponsorship. No accountability. No new training precincts. No parasites. Just good old Collingwood forever.
See yous all there.
