throwback thursday #2

As my Nanna knows many of you know, I started out my career as a country singer before I turned into a professional smartarse

I released three albums under the name TJ DENNIS

I got to work and tour with the hottest of the shit hot bands, mah boys, The Wham Bam Thank You Band (and more rare than a Sasquatch sighting, for the very keen observer, you may even catch a glimpse of my not often seen brother Travis. Hint; he’s the one playing lead guitar)

We played at some freaky good venues and festivals

And I got to work with some amazeballs songwriters

This clip showcases all of that

Along with my clunky heels from the Elton John collection

So for this THROWBACK THURSDAY, I give you…

“LOOKS WHOSE BOOTS” written by My Dad
Performed with the Wham Bammers at the Gympie Muster

Sidenote: One day (soon) Macaroni and Magoo are going to SHIT go into a fancy dress frenzy, when I have my own episode of hoarders and bring out this outfit and SO many others, that I’ve kept along with those size 8 jeans that I SWEAR will fit me again FFS

 

 

imelda marcos or mother theresa?

I know what you’re thinking Diamond
Another pair of shoes?

Well I have two words for you…..BITE ME
Gift. Voucher.
Yep
There had to be some kind of pay off for risking my safety by rifling through the junk drawer to find the leg for Magoo’s slutty Monster High Doll.
Is your junk drawer like that?
Full of pens that don’t work, receipts, coins, paperclips, random sharp objects, go-gurt wrappers and slutty doll parts?
Anyhoo, this week I win. Not only did I find the requested doll leg – I also discovered a long forgotten gift voucher
So you KNOW I was going to use that shit for shoes. Like, duh.
So I found the shoes I liked, which happen to be PERFECT for the upcoming UK tour, and ordered ’em.
Shipping was FREE, but I would have totally sprung for it even if it wasn’t
I mean, like I would buy a pair of shoes, and then LEAVE them at the shop.
What am I, a monster?
Would you adopt a kid then tell it to buy it’s own bus ticket to your house?
I didn’t think so

So they show up in this whole world vision, Bob Geldoff-y box 
Which informs me that, not only am I the trendy footed new owner of some awesome comfy slipper-like shoes
But because I BOUGHT these shoes, Skechers are going to give a new pair of shoes to a kid in need

So, really I’m NOT adding to my ridonkulously overflowing shoe collection

I’m saving the fucking world.
