Samuel’s Footy Tips Barking at the kittens of the 20 million year old dinosaur

In the recent Coffee-Cup-O-Meter series I kept a record of every cup of coffee I had so that I could ensure that there wouldn’t be any memory lapses. Here is a photo of the daily record of the Coffee-Cup-O-Meter.

    The framework for Dolgnwot… the matrix laid bare. I can feel the sentinals issuing from the catacombs beneath the Nice Garden in Reid.

    Just out of curiosity, what kind of coffee is a ‘75% ish travel’?

  • 2. John B1_B5  |  April 29th, 2006 at 5:06 pm

    But Samuel …. you forgot to write the dates in !

  • 3. Samuel  |  April 29th, 2006 at 5:09 pm

    “Travel” is an abreviation for “Travel Mug”.

    John, as it was just for my daily reference during the last season of the coffee-cup-o-meter, I didn’t feel a need to write in the dates. If you’re interested, the dates would have started on the 2nd of April and ended on the 17th of April.

  • 4. John B1_B5  |  April 29th, 2006 at 5:24 pm

    You mean from the 4th to the 17th. (inclusive ).

  • 5. Samuel  |  April 29th, 2006 at 6:09 pm

    Hmmm, indeed I do.

  • 6. Chuck A. Spear  |  April 29th, 2006 at 11:36 pm

    In all this excitement I have just accidentally stapled an ACTION bus timetable to my forehead.

  • 7. Chuck A. Spear  |  April 30th, 2006 at 1:02 am

    I equate Samuel’s consumption of Coffee to The Dude’s slurping of Kahlua and milk.

    With all the death threats being bandied about, I have just nailed a block of wood to the floor to hold a chair. This should prevent any nihilists and ferrets from gaining access to my abode.

    Bowling anyone?

  • 8. wonko the sane  |  April 30th, 2006 at 1:12 am

    I wouldn’t hold out much hope for the tape deck though.

    Or the Creedence.

  • 9. Chuck A. Spear  |  April 30th, 2006 at 1:13 am

    As long as it is not the Eagles i don’t care. Mind, you i do have a coffee cup imprint in my head.

  • 10. wonko the sane  |  April 30th, 2006 at 1:19 am

    Yes, the Malibu chief of police is a real reactionary.

    Take the ringer, chop-chop.

  • 11. wonko the sane  |  April 30th, 2006 at 1:20 am

    It was parked in a handicapped zone… perhaps they towed it.

  • 12. Chuck A. Spear  |  April 30th, 2006 at 1:24 am

    My briefcase was in that car. It had business papers in it.

    What do you do?

    I am unemployed!


  • 13. wonko the sane  |  April 30th, 2006 at 1:27 am

    A wiser fella than me once said, sometimes you eat the bar, and sometimes… (slurps sarsaparilla)… sometimes the bar eats you.

    Is that some kinda Eastern thing?

    Far from it…

  • 14. Chuck A. Spear  |  April 30th, 2006 at 1:30 am

    As soon as the Dude paid for his milk with a cheque, I was hooked.

    Maybe Caz is doing a Bunny type thing. The Hack should check her toes.

  • 15. wonko the sane  |  April 30th, 2006 at 1:30 am

    And as a surfer, he travelled the land from Leo Corio, Pasadina and Pizmo.

    And in your wisdom you took him lord, just as you took so many young men in their prime on Hamburger Hill and Hill 364.

    And so, donald theodore hertzel, we commend your remains to the bosom of the pacific ocean.

    (shakes out ash)

    Good night, sweet prince.

  • 16. wonko the sane  |  April 30th, 2006 at 1:31 am

    Same, chuck. With a milk mustache.

  • 18. wonko the sane  |  April 30th, 2006 at 1:34 am

    It’s my favourite movie of all time. I can pretty much quote the whole thing. Sometimes my friends and I have whole conversations using only the script.

    Do you have any kalua?

  • 19. Chuck A. Spear  |  April 30th, 2006 at 1:34 am

    Gold. Seriously though, my friend had to dispose of his old man’s ashes last year. We laughed about it because he was scared of doing a Walter.

  • 20. Chuck A. Spear  |  April 30th, 2006 at 1:38 am

    Somebody has my DVD and I want it back post-haste!

  • 21. wonko the sane  |  April 30th, 2006 at 1:40 am

    Dude, I was just at the supermarket buying snax, and as I was parking the car, I saw a handicapped space next to me and thought ‘perhaps they towed it’.

    I’m hopeless.

    Hey, this will all be deleted tomorrow. Off topic. Is there a way you can get me your email chuck? I was gonna ask if you could write for my website.

    it’s here

    The dude is not in. Can you leave a message?

  • 22. Chuck A. Spear  |  April 30th, 2006 at 1:40 am

    I have had to copy and paste.

    Look, let me explain something.
    I’m not Mr. Lebowski; you’re Mr.
    Lebowski. I’m the Dude. So that’s
    what you call me. That, or Duder.
    His Dudeness. Or El Duderino, if,
    you know, you’re not into the whole
    brevity thing–

    Are you employed, sir?


    You don’t go out and make a living
    dressed like that in the middle of a

    Is this a–what day is this?

    But I do work, so if you don’t mind–

    No, look. I do mind. The Dude minds.
    This will not stand, ya know, this
    will not stand, man. I mean, if
    your wife owes–

  • 23. wonko the sane  |  April 30th, 2006 at 1:43 am

    my WIFE! my wife is not the issue here!

  • 24. Chuck A. Spear  |  April 30th, 2006 at 1:44 am

    Yeah I been checking your site. It seems to be going to the old forum?

    I will re-register now.

  • 25. wonko the sane  |  April 30th, 2006 at 1:45 am

    You revolution is over, Mr Lebowski! Condolences! The bums lost!

    I want a t-shirt that says in a friendly typeface: Condolences!

  • 26. wonko the sane  |  April 30th, 2006 at 1:46 am

    thanks man.

    I ain’t leavin. I’m drinking my coffee. Enjoying my coffee.

  • 27. Chuck A. Spear  |  April 30th, 2006 at 1:48 am

    Yeah i can write for you guys for sure. Just give me instructions.

  • 28. wonko the sane  |  April 30th, 2006 at 1:49 am

    sweet. ill post my email address under the first post — julia baird — its under the 5th rock in the nice garden in reid.

  • 29. Chuck A. Spear  |  April 30th, 2006 at 1:50 am

    My advice is, do what your parents did! Get a job, sir! The bums will always lose do you hear me, Lebowski?

  • 30. wonko the sane  |  April 30th, 2006 at 3:43 am

    Calmer than you are.

  • 31. heatseeker  |  April 30th, 2006 at 10:30 am

    One thing that strikes me here is the eerie parallels with DOLGNWOT … note the same chequered pattern but the absence of colours.

    Perhaps Samuel’s subliminal messages are dictated by his caffiene intake, which he charts here and then transposes on to his art work, with each different colour and square respresentative of the caffiene rush at a certain point in time.

    Now, tell me if I’m wrong, are these charts essentially a rough draught for the next DOLGNWOT instalment? I will be counting the squares with rapt attention … perhaps we have found a chink in the armour which will lead to the deciphering of the Samuel Code.

  • 32. Aunty_Jack  |  April 30th, 2006 at 3:59 pm

    I am the Walrus!

  • 33. cunninglinguist  |  April 30th, 2006 at 5:13 pm

    Samuel, what is your favourite brand of instant coffee? At the moment I am loving Moccona Indulgence. Very, very nice.

  • 34. wonko the sane  |  April 30th, 2006 at 8:16 pm

    My thoughts exactly, heatseeker. If we could only learn which colour is attributed to what sort of coffee, we would one step closer to solving this riddle.

  • 35. Aunty_Jack  |  May 1st, 2006 at 3:56 pm

    8 year olds dude.

  • 36. Aunty_Jack  |  May 1st, 2006 at 3:58 pm

    The post you thought wise to delete was just a quote from the same movie everyone else is quoting from samuel, thanks for censoring me, must be good to play god.

  • 37. Aunty_Jack  |  May 1st, 2006 at 4:00 pm

    Im banning myself from your site for the rest of the day.

  • 38. Aunty_Jack  |  May 1st, 2006 at 4:00 pm

    Im banning myself from your site for the rest of the day.

  • 39. Samuel  |  May 1st, 2006 at 5:34 pm

    Well reinstate your comment then…

  • 40. Chuck A. Spear  |  May 1st, 2006 at 7:13 pm

    Aunty Jack. If you would like to find a funny quote from that movie check this link-

  • 41. Aunty_Jack  |  May 2nd, 2006 at 7:53 am

    I dont need your pity Chuck, I own the DVD and can keep up with the conversation. If I want to put my own spin (he he spin) on it then thats up to me, GOD…..IDIOT!!!!!

    Im sorry…..Your not wrong Chuck, your just an asshole.

  • 42. heatseeker  |  May 2nd, 2006 at 4:00 pm

    Does Aunty Jack’s response qualify as an online death threat? Will we see Chuck withdraw from public life?

  • 43. John B1_B5  |  May 2nd, 2006 at 7:02 pm

    Who will receive a ‘death threat’ next, and will Samuel’s Blog, Samuel’s Persiflage, and “Dogglewort” be totally destroyed ?

    Stay tuned folks ! All the ACTION can be found here – on Samuel’s Blog !

  • 44. Chuck A. Spear  |  May 2nd, 2006 at 8:58 pm

    I have now placed myself in the witness protection program. I will be housed in a nice fibro cottage in Moe…

  • 45. heatseeker  |  May 3rd, 2006 at 8:15 am

    Those moccasins will keep your feet toasty warm this time of the year …

  • 46. heatseeker  |  May 3rd, 2006 at 11:27 am

    Chuck, don’t you think it’s a bit counter productive announcing to all and sundry where you will be hiding under the witness protection program?

    That said, I suppose saying it’s a fibro cottage doesn’t narrow it down much when it comes to Moe.

    Perhaps it will have a nice garden …

  • 47. Chuck A. Spear  |  May 3rd, 2006 at 3:27 pm

    I have just learnt to dribble and walk sideways so that I can blend in. I have also just been shopping at Dimmeys for some new threads.

    Don’t worry Heatseeker, I will not be found. From now on I will have to post via proxy as my asbestos cottage does not have running water or electricity.
