I'm Keith. I'm 27. I'm Australian. I've never really been the kind of person who fits in, anywhere.

I tend to stand out, for better or worse. I tend not to care what most people think of me, except the people who encourage me to keep being me.

I'm the kind of guy who will quite happily walk down the street in a trenchcoat, top hat, vest, and tie, and not care about the weird looks I get.

I've got three piercings, and one tattoo. I'm looking to get more tattoos, but I'm not sure about more piercings.

I vent my frustrations, anxiety, and depression by writing what could be described as rock music inspired poetry, and frequently by just simply writing about them on this very blog.

I believe the world would be a better place, if we could each make an effort, at least once per day, to make someone else smile.

Strange things happen to me when my girlfriend is bored.

It’s a good thing I have no illusions of masculinity, or I probably wouldn’t ever share these.

Final thought of the day: Another story from my life.

When I was younger, despite certainly not being popular, I was once voted into a position that’s usually a popularity contest.

See, I was a member of the Scouts, and we’d recently gained an influx of new scouts joining our troop. 

This meant we needed to divide the troop from 3 patrols, into 5, which, of course, meant we needed two new patrol leaders.

I ended up getting voted in as one of them, because the general consensus was that I was the most responsible, and had the most life experience and practical knowledge.

I was pretty proud of that one year I was a patrol leader. I also learned a lot from the experience of being a Scout, too.

WWF Smackdown!, PS1.

Interesting fact:A copy of this game was given to me as a gift in 2000, by a guy who had been given it, but didn’t enjoy it. I asked him whether it was any good, and he said “You can have it. I don’t play it anymore, but you might like it”.At that point, the only wrestling I’d seen was Undertaker vs Undertaker from SummerSlam ‘94, which, honestly, even today, I see as a terrible match, so I’d never gotten into it at all because of that.This game changed that. I thought some of these characters seemed pretty awesome, and had some cool moves.This prompted me to buy the second game in the series when it came out, then I’d always buy whichever WWE game was available on the console I had. In about 2003, I moved to Taree. I knew nobody here, so for fun, all I could do was play these, or rent videos… I found WWE VHS tapes at the video store one day, and chose to rent WrestleMania X-Seven.From that day onwards, I would rent a WWE video every time I was there, until they started stocking the DVDs in a local store. I began buying them then. My first one that I owned was WrestleMania XX. As you may know now, I have a large box now, probably containing over 100 DVDs.This video game, though, was what started it. This video game is what made me a wrestling fan. I’m just upset I didn’t get into it earlier.

It really is a shame that all of you don’t live near me.

I need people around who aren’t afraid to stand before my camera… And I know there is a lot of you who’d gladly help.

Nearly everyone I know either won’t do it because they don’t think they look good, or won’t do it because they don’t like having photos taken. Or a combination of both.

So, over the last few weeks, two women I consider to be sisters have gotten engaged.

I wish them both all the best. I just find it interesting how they’ve always been close, and now they even managed to get engaged to their respective partners at almost the same time.

It’s pretty awesome, really.

Friendly reminder that the Duckbill Platypus is not beaver sized but the tiniest most cutest patootie being in existence 

OH GOD

i thought these things were the size of like, large cats or something. ITS FUCKING TINY JESUS

Two notes:
1. Males average 50cm total length, females average about 43. Size varies regionally, so they can grow much larger than what’s seen here.

2. The males, in particular, may look cute, but you do not want to mess with one. They produce a venom, which is delivered via a spur on the back foot. This venom is powerful enough to kill a dog, or cat, and can incapacitate a  human. There’s also evidence to support the notion that after recovering from the initial envenomation, humans develop an increased sensitivity to all pain. 

This increased sensitivity can last anywhere from a few days, to months. On top of that, the initial wound itself will be in persistant pain for days, to months, and doesn’t respond to pain medication, up to and including morphine.

There was a war veteran in australia, Keith Payne, who was caught by one’s spur, and described the pain as “Worse than being struck by shrapnel”. Over one month later, he still described pain in that hand. 15 years later, he still reported stiffness, and discomfort in that hand while doing everyday activities, like using a hammer.

Just because things in Australia look cute, doesn’t mean they won’t mess you up.

Crikey.

I did a bit of research, and it turns out, this actually was a real thing.

They fixed it, but you can still find it by googling “Forever 21 Union Jack Remix top”.

It makes my brain hurt that someone could make a mistake that huge, and nobody stopped them from putting it on their website.

The human face is an odd thing.

So much emotion can be expressed with such small movements.

Although, the emotion is not always true to the expression.

I felt exactly the same emotion when shooting both these photos, yet only one of them shows the truth.

Another day, another “fact” on facebook that needs correcting.

Dear facebook friend who I will leave anonymous: If Easter is truly “The anniversary of Jesus’ death, and resurrection”, it would fall on the same date every year.


I’m not even going to go into the origins of it, or anything else, but the fact is, while some may  believe it’s a celebration or remembrance of that biblical event, it is not an anniversary.

Besides, for most people, it’s more about the chocolate anyway, so let’s all stop arguing about who invented it, or what it means, and just eat as much chocolate as we want.



10 more random songs from my mp3 player:

Let’s see what we can learn about me from my music taste today…

1. “Iris” - Goo Goo Dolls
2. “Scream” - Avenged Sevenfold
3. “Ace of Spades” - Motorhead
4. “Last Kiss” - Pearl Jam
5. “Seek and Destroy” - Metallica
6. “Holiday” - Green Day
7. “Doomsday Clock” - Smashing Pumpkins
8. “Melissa” - Mercyful Fate
9. “Between angels and insects” - Papa Roach
10. “Space oddity” - David Bowie.


Final thought of the day: Change is on the way…

I think my hair has faded enough that it’s almost time for a new colour.

I’m thinking of going away from the purple and green this time.

I’ve been doing those a lot lately.

Perhaps something with a Blue. 

There’s a habit of mine that I think makes people a little wary of me.

I have a tendency to make a lot of very small observations in my head.

These small observations have, on several occasions, caught people out on lies, or things they were trying to keep secret.

I’m not an easy man to lie to, even if the lies are sometimes for my own good. I see more than I let most people think.

I’m always very careful, though, about letting on that I know someone’s lying to me, because I’m aware that sometimes, my brain tells me things are worse than they are.

I might try to make random lists of music from my MP3 player a semi regular thing.

I’ve always felt you can learn things about someone by learning what music they keep with them… And I encourage people to learn about me.


“I hate when every model WWE hired says their role-model is Trish Stratus. God, it’s irritating; I bet they just watched a few matches of her and think, “Yeah she is my role-model. Well the only Diva I watched.”“

I always thought they said that because Trish was hired as a model, and people thought she was naught but eye-candy when she started, yet managed to become one of, if not the single greatest women’s champion of all time. Trish proved that someone the fans saw as “Just a model” could be as good as anyone else with hard work.Just because someone’s hired from a different profession, doesn’t mean they can’t be successful as a wrestler.
