If we are doing favorite our favorite Australian songs this is one of my all time favorites:

I also really enjoyed the stuff she did with Shane Nicholson:

As far as spiders go I have a daughter who FREAKS OUT when she sees one. I think girls like her are why they invented those realistic looking little plastic spiders. Literally hours of entertainment over the years :)

and here is someone who really doesn't like spiders, LOL!

@loosie , I'm going to vent! Specifically, about Radiohead! That song of theirs, Creep! I want to wear pointy shoes and kick the singer's bottom! He should go work in a soup kitchen to do something useful that's not gazing at his own mouldy navel, and that might help him understand he's not the centre of the universe! "I wish I was special, so f-ing special!" Grrrr! Go chop some vegies for the disadvantaged, instead of pulling this silly "I'm such a tortured poet" stuff, and wallowing like a burrowing ground frog...

SueC is time travelling.

To Andy, Yeah, Kasey Chambers too - love her silly 'Pony' song too. Country music is something I've only enjoyed in the last... decade or so too. Pity it blocked me for some reason for that first vid, but the second one is awesome.

And you are very naughty, tormenting your daughter with that 'entertainment'!!

And Sue, no, Radiohead & the likes is all 'blah blah' to me & I haven't noticed the lyrics. Oh Sue, Mama Kin is another you might like - she is(well was, not sure now) John Butler's partner and Nicky Bomba's sister.

No, loosie, I am just terrified of Chesapeake Bay Retrievers and of Ghengis Khan and Mongolia in general. It used to be bad... especially Chessies, because they crop up more often than Ghengis Khan does.

We are watching Grand Tour right now, and have just finished the 11th episode. Not many more to go, and I am very aware that the Mongolian episode is coming up soon... yikes!

No, I am ready for it. I'm over it.

Chesapeakes, well, that has gotten better, but is not great. I still start vibrating when I see one, but at least I don't break out into a full sweat. I have 40 stitches from an Irish Setter, have broken up, singlehandedly, a fight between two German Shepherds and two Pitbulls, yet I am not afraid of those breeds.

Chessies? Yup. I think I neet to get a Chessie puppy and that would probably lay that one to rest. But I am a little too afraid of them...

^Umm, I would have thought it was... a few centuries too late to worry about Mr Khan! Just don't watch the kid's educational show Horrible Histories if you have it over there! Reminds me, I once met a guy called Attila & he was a Hungarian... I giggled quite a bit I'm afraid.

Hard not to giggle at that!

As far as phobias go though, I think I have it pretty easy. I mean, what is one more likely to encounter, a spider or Ghengis Khan? Even a Chesapeake Bay Retriever: unless I go to a dog show or a duck hunt, I'm pretty safe.

So, all in all, not too debilitating... but still surprisingly powerful.

Ooooh, I looooove Horrible Histories, @loosie !

And did you ever catch Dr Tatiana's Sex Advice For All Creation? Biology on mushrooms, I think!

@Captain Evil , did you have a bad experience with that sort of dog in toddlerhood? And maybe get nightmares over Genghis Khan stories as a littlie? Or did these phobias apparently pop up randomly?

They are just random, as far as I can tell. Many years ago I decided to tackle them, and began with the Chessy thing, as they were more accessible than Ghengis Khan. I started looking at pictures in dog books, and worked my way up to dog shows. I finally got to the point where I was standing next to an actual Chesapeake Bay Retriever, and not totally dying.

So I got brave, and asked the guy if I could pet his dog. He said "Yes", I looked down at the dog, and it looked back at me with those eerie peeled-grape eyes, and growled.

So I backed silently away and decided I could live with that particular phobia.
