Bones
Driftwood of a flooded gum
Coated with enamel 
And I wonder,
How did it end up on the beach? 
But each night I wash over them
A little harder, longer than the last
Eroding away till there's nothing left

Typical of the time...1950's-60's era "Sydney Red Brick" apartment building. Not a hill nor a view in sight. Stanmore.

Big ramble post.
So, I was watching zombieland 1&2 tonight with a friend. One of the main characters at some point starts to sing ‘give me a home, where the buffalo roam. & the deer & the antelope play’.
My friend & I both commented that we thought he was singing ‘give me a home among the gum trees’, until we’re like ‘oh wait, he isn’t Australian’ & he continued with the lyrics.
I never realised how similarly they could be sung until then.
But also, just now I was looking up the lyrics to ‘home among the gum trees’ because I learnt all the verses in primary school but had forgotten some. I wanted to see what they were.
In the process of looking them up, I found articles about a mattress company & some sport stars wanting to change the lyrics to ‘reflect the diversity of Australia in the modern day’.
I’m like WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK.
Not, there’s racist, prejudice or white washing language in this song.
Not a legitimate reason to change the lyrics. Just change they lyrics because we don’t all live in the bush. WTF. We didn’t all live in the bush when it was written.
The last verse literally says;
‘some people live in houses,
with fences all around.
Others live in mansions,
& some beneath the ground.
But me I like the bush you know...’ ect.
It literally addresses this ‘diversity’ they’re talking about. Where else in the world do people live underground beside Coober pedy, Australia. Not many. Clearly talking about Australia being a diverse place to live.
Talk about cause issues for no reason. I wonder if it was a publicity thing for the brand... not doing themselves any favours though. Write your own god damn song if you want it to say something else. Why change a classic?
I think we can all idealise the Australian bush, especially in a song from our childhood, without ignoring the fact that the majority of Australians don’t live & don’t want to live in the bush. Given how many songs are actually racist or completely ignore/whitewash Australian history, home among the gum trees is the least of our issues. SHUT THE FUCK UP & let us have a cute NON-PROBLEMATIC song.
Plus, I do want to live in the bush. Leave me alone 😅
I am reading these lyrics at face value, I don’t know how to interpret literature & shit. If I’m missing something & somehow something is legitimately racist, please let me know.

Why did I have a Second fucking dream about high school smh
#first I was in minecraft world with my roommates in the nether? and there was the same lava I had found in a dungeon irl but in the dream#there was a treasure and then more treasure that broke into a whole new area with a lake and a fuckton of presents and I was able to get#four of them but we had to get a taxi to the real world? because we were stuck somehow?? and I tried to pay the person at the real world#counter in gum but that wasn't allowed so I have her one of my presents which were stacked into one and had to be opened one at a time with#fried chicken which... interesting choice brain... and then we were in my high school?? and it gets blurry for a bit.. at some point I was#in a basement and learned/ revealed that I was a vampire which just was nbd in this world#oh when I walked in to the school everyone looked at me scornfully that's something that happened in the last dream too#and there was a booth and they were trying to remember the around about above across stuff and then I went to the woods?? which surrounded#the school and I was looking for mr tumnus who was a werewolf but I couldn't find him and then there was something about me owning the#booth everyone had been getting into? which meant I had to sit in on I think a school council meeting?? but it was just one teacher and#then a bunch of kids from my grade. and some of them including Calvin were in cosplay club but found it weird that I found it weird even#though I'm pretty sure they just all dressed up as footballer?? anyway people were given tasks and had to do things with trees but no one#used silk touch which I found weird and there was a lil slug guy that became I think presslys to take care of and elli did something with a#tree and plants and then jake got mr tumnus but also there was a giant holding a whole tree walking by which was cool but I heard mr tumnus#and I lept to my feet and sprinted into the forest and yelled for him and this time he came and I hugged him and then jake showed up and I#told mr tumnus the wolf to run and he did and jake was mad at me but I just shrugged and told him if he wanted him he had to get him#himself and that was the end of the dream#insert John mulaney we don't have time to unpack all of that gif
