Sing-A-Long

Kevin’s Night in Scores


Written and performed by Daniel Viles as part of the How Hard Can It Be?
segment on ABC Local Radio Brisbane during 2007 after Kevin Rudd was re-
vealed to have spent a night in New York’s Scores nightclub while there on
official business in 2004.

This is a song called “Kevin’s Night in Scores”


It’s about Kevin Rudd... and his night in Scores
Now most of you think this is when he went astray
but that’s the night that made him what he is today.
He walked in that night a champion of Labor Right
and walked out a hero of the poor
So this is a song that’s all about Kevin
Kevin’s night in Scores

Kevin sat by the stage and yelled out “show us some skin!”
The effect was so stunning, he tried again in Mandarin.
The dancer was confused but she knew she had the power
so she offered him a lap dance for 200 bucks an hour
Kevin called out, “Good Lord! No working man can afford
those kind of prices under new I.R. laws” (a-ha!)
So this is a song that’s all about Kevin
Kevin’s night in Scores

Then Kevin saw a vision and he heard angelic voices,


singing, “The problem’s not strip clubs, the problem’s Work Choices”
So he stood on the stage, and he declared, “of these laws,
I want to be the eraser.”
Then he ran out of Scores, left his trousers behind,
and the girls put them next to Malcolm Fraser’s.

So Trouserless Kevin came back with a plan


for affordable ‘lappies’ and more pay in the hand
“I’m an economic conservative!” he tells all in sight
and the girls back at Scores say, “yeah, he got that right.”
But if cheaper lap dances lead to economic answers
then let the girls lead the applause
So this is a song that’s all about Kevin
Kevin’s night in Scores
So this is a song that’s all about Kevin
Kevin’s night in Scores

Flashback

The 80’s Will Live Forever


It was the decade of decadence. It was about glitz and glamour as well as baubles, bangles, and beads.
Scott married Charlene and Lady Diana Spencer joined the Royal Family. The first desktop computers went on sale
and Saturday morning cartoons were the best they’ve ever been. Bob Hawke was Prime Minister and Uluru was
handed back to the traditional owners of the land. Tom Cruise felt the need for speed and Cyndi Lauper showed
her True Colours.

When did all this take place? We can only be talking about that terrific time period – the electrifying eighties.

>> 
Here are 21 ways for you to verify that you’re a part of (or belong in)
the 1980’s.

You thought She-ra (Princess of Power!) and He-Man should hookup.

 Two words: Hammer Pants.

Mobile phones were the size of a brick and seen clipped to the belts of cheesy
 old rich guys with bad hair.

You had either: a Cabbage Patch Kid, My Little Pony, a Rubik’s Cube, or some-
 thing with a Star Wars logo.

 You yearned to be a member of the Baby-sitters club and tried to start a club
of your own.

 You ever got seriously injured on a Slip’n’Slide.

 You had big hair and you knew how to use it.

 You can still recite dialogue from any movie starring Molly Ringwald.

 You had plastic streamers on your handle bars and “spokey-dokes” on your
rims.

You had or attended a birthday party at McDonalds.

You wore stonewashed denim jackets and were proud of it.

 You wanted to change your name to “JEM” in Kindergarten. (She’s truly outra-
geous)

 You watched “Fraggle Rock “.

 You know the profound meaning of “WAX ON, WAX OFF”.

 You ever wore fluorescent clothing. (some of us... head-to-toe)

 You remember boomboxes and walking around with one on your shoulder like
you were all that.

 Your parents were afraid you’d cut yourself putting on a snap bracelet.

You can remember what Michael Jackson looked like before his nose fell off
 and his cheeks shifted.

 You remember Hypercolour t-shirts.

If someone says, “I don’t know,” you automatically expect green slime to mys-

teriously fall from the ceiling.

 You wore out your thumbs playing video games on: Atari, Sega, Nintendo, and
Commodore 64.

a sperm sample for cryogenesis. These samples will be

Red VIP Card Club Review

Red VIP Card Club Review: Hypnotiq @ Cesar’s Nightclub


Hypnotiq is Brisbane’s biggest and most
innovative rnb/hip-hop weekly event, located at
Cesar’s Nightclub, Adelaide Street. Hypnotiq plays
host to a unique yet authentic Saturday night
urban event that has quickly become established
as Brisbane’s premier night out, and favourite gig
spot amongst dj’s and mc’s across Australia and New
Zealand. After kicking off mid June 2007, Hypnotiq
quickly established itself as a one-of-a-kind event not
yet seen by Brisbane and six months later, Hypnotiq
has officially claimed the title of Brisbane’s hottest
urban destination.
As the brain child of long-time Brisbane Promoter
Scott Ferris (The Underdome, Chi Bar, Underground),
Hypnotiq was designed as an original concept - a
sophisticated hip-hop/rnb night that showcased
the cutting edge of urban music, fashion and
entertainment, making it enjoyable and attractive
to even the most casual fans of the genre. This

goal remains at the centre of Hypnotiq’s success; and this is reflected in all aspects. The bar stocks some

People You Know

Do You Work with a Stinker?


Let’s face it, if you work, you undoubtedly have run into a smelly co-worker. These folks come in all types and even
are in all different levels of authority. Yes, even those on the upper level of the corporate ladder may be a smelly
reeking, stinking coworker. You can try to hide from these people, but they are everywhere. A smelly person can
downright ruin a good working atmosphere. Worse, many of these people are not even aware of their problem.
Let’s review the types of co-workers you may run into.

Lunch Breath

This person apparently has no idea what certain foods can do to a person’s breath. At lunch
time, they consume the most obnoxious foods they can think of. Garlic bases foods, Italian,
etc. These foods can have such a potent affect on your breath that they can smell up an entire
office just by merely breathing. Eating mints after lunch will NOT help, as the offending odor
is coming from deep within your stomach. No amount of tooth paste or breath mints will help,
and if this person happens to burp? Get out of the way and get out the glade plug-ins!

The Thick as Mud Perfume Women

Much like the Cologne man, these women douse their bodies with perfume so thick, it makes flow-
ers wilt and babies cry. Often, this women also has make-up on so thick, she is barely recognizable as
herself. This person leaves an odor trail wherever she goes. If the morning dose is not enough, midday,
this person breaks out the bottle of perfume and douses some more on, as if the first batch of perfume
somehow stopped smelling up the place.

The Smoker

The last type of person we will explore in this article is the smoker. This person comes back
from the “smoke break” just reeking of smoke. As a non-smoker, this odor can be quite
offensive. As a former smoker, this odor can be quite enticing. Whatever your stance, the
smoke odor also lingers on anybody within range.
Smelly coworkers can come in all types. It is up to you on how you handle the situation.
Typically, the best approach is to simply confront the person straight-up and discuss the
concern. Sometimes they may not even be aware of the issue. If all else fails, get used to
holding your breath or purchase a gas mask.

How to Deal With Hangovers

A hangover is something

time. After spending a night out
drinking, you may wake up in the
morning with your head feeling
heavy and your stomach in knots.
At that moment, you probably
decided that you would never drink
again, to prevent this awful feeling
from happening again. No matter
how hard you may have tried
though, chances are that you’ve
had another drink.
