No Apologies Needed
Radio666fm: Coffee with Mephisto As far leadership training courses go, the one run by the Deaf Society of NSW back in 1989, was unremarkable. It would have remained obliterated from my memory if it werenâ€™t for the debriefing session that ended the week in which I was a participant. It would have remained an unremarkable memory, if it werenâ€™t [â€¦]

Breaking The Sound Barrier, and Destroying A Few Eardrums...
Radio666fm: Coffee with Mephisto I donâ€™t know why I bother, but these endless debates, nee arguments, regarding Deaf vs. deaf, education and communication methods, bilingualism, and ideology are nothing if not polarising. In the ensuing melee, things get said, facts get thrown, opinions get expressed, things get left out, logic is skewed, bullshit spewed and no one is any [â€¦]

Mem Wahâ€™s and Remmy Nessing!
Radio666fm: Coffee with Mephisto These days, Iâ€™m not in the loop as to whatâ€™s going down in the Deaf and deaf worldâ€™s, vis-Ã -vis the various organisations, advocacy and otherwise, because thereâ€™s more to life than swilling bullshit being a bored member. I mean, what could be more wonderful than having to reschedule a committee meeting because the chairperson of [â€¦]

Nyle DiMarcoâ€™s Activism Is Dangerous For The Deaf...
Radio666fm: Coffee with Mephisto Nyle DiMarco is a very bad man. A very bad man. A dangerous activist who used his sign language skills to divert much needed attention away from the oral deaf community, the Oralites, and onto the Deaf community, the Deafies. Not only that, he ripped off his shirt, and everyone swooned. Animal! Rrrrrrr! Bad, bad [â€¦]

The Best of Both Worlds.
Radio666fm: Coffee with Mephisto One of the biggest lies ever perpetuated on humankind, is the Best of Both Worlds Theory, and I have heard some doozies in my time. It rates up there with Trickle Down Economics, The Middle Ground, Meeting Halfway, Being Diplomatic, and that Deafies are an Extremist and Militant lot. More dangerous than Australian wildlife we [â€¦]

A Clash Of Civilisations
Radio666fm: Coffee with Mephisto Iâ€™m a bastard. A no good, low down, cheap jiving Deafie out to destroy both Hearing and Oralite Civilisations. Aggy Bell and her sisters are having conniptions, a collective fit of hysterical excitement. â€Why? Why? WHY????â€ Aggy Bell wailed. â€œWe have invested in audio devices. We have spent countless hours learning to tork. Itâ€™s hell [â€¦]

The Conversion Of The Oralite
Radio666fm: Coffee with Mephisto I used to be an Oralite, until I defected to the dark side, The Deafies. I grew up thinking that communicating via the Yak, Yak, was de rigueur. Opening your mouth and closing it, was the height of sophistication. It is amazing how that one entrance can be used to breath, eat and regurgitate with, [â€¦]

I Swear Because I Can! [An Ode to Edan Chapman]
Radio666fm: Coffee with Mephisto I turn 55 this year, and you would think that at some point, I would take time out to stop and smell the fucking roses, looking back on my fucking awesome life, with great fucking satisfaction, and marvel at just how much humanity has progressed. Not gunna happen. Look, I am really a nice person, [â€¦]

The Time Slip
Radio666fm: Coffee with Mephisto I was sitting in front of the TV the other night, it was muggy and I was bored shitless. I was staring at the screen, unmoved by the sad songs and the dirty jokes playing out.Â If I was bored â€¦ Continue reading â†’

The Mourners, Part Two.
Radio666fm: Coffee with Mephisto As I said in my last post, â€œThe Mourners was the last painting I did after I graduated from Art School, Sydney College of The Arts, in 1982. I never finished it, and it will remain unfinished.â€ When I decided to start painting again, Iâ€™ve been weighing up the pros and cons of finishing this painting. Iâ€™ve decided to leave it as it is. It captures a moment in m...

Oh Leatherman, Where Can You Be?
Radio666fm: Coffee with Mephisto I love my interpreters that I do. They work hard for us Deafies, interpreting soundwaves into flaps, and even more amazingly, they translate the flaps into soundwaves. I call them the Terps. They occupy a position of trust, otherwise known as the spotlight. They know all our secrets. They know where we hid that stash. They know who is shagging whom, and they know abou...

Art School Blues [In The Beginning]
Radio666fm: Coffee with Mephisto I very nearly did not go to art school, because I didnâ€™t get my first choice which was Graphic Design. In January 1980, I opened the letter that detailed my rejection and acceptance, I saw that I was offered a place in Visual Arts instead: painting, sculpture, photography, screen printing, et al, which I thought, wasnâ€™t me at all. I chucked a hissy fit andÂ decide...
