like minded nutters

I just came off stage at Booval
And dude
That’s the place where we filmed the ‘WAIT’ film clip (CLICK HERE TO CHECK IT OUT)

Back then, I remember thinking we couldn’t have chosen a better place to film
A deafeningly mental crowd
Let me tell you, I think they’ve gotten LOUDER in the last 2 years
The foldback speakers (the ones facing me so I can hear my vocals and guitar) were cranked to the max, and I still had trouble hearing over the top
Which really, wasn’t a drama
‘Cause hearing them sing all the words to my songs beats listening to me sing it
They went off like a frog in a sock
A frog with A.D.D.
And beer.

Add that to the last few days
And I’m a happy little vegemite
THIS, is what touring is all about

From catching up with mates all over the country

(for the first annual Jenny Talia ewok convention?)

(Hi Leighanne!)

Some of whom line up forever, just to get a signature or a photo
Some of them….don’t quite make it
This poor bastard pulled up a chair and waited
And waited…
Until he just couldn’t wait any more
We were joking that we hoped he wasn’t dead
‘Cause then we’d feel so bad and confirm our first class ticket to hell. But you guys’ll all be there…so I shouldn’t really worry about it
And look like total arseholesphoto-22
And we’d HATE to look like arsholes

stick your stickers

I’ve never really understood people’s need to cover their car in stickers

Like I want the opinion of a stranger, when I’m looking at his arse at a red light

Because 9 times out of 10, I don’t agree with their crap and slogans and political points of view

And by the time that light turns green, I’m ready to ram ’em

Or at least gun it past them while giving them my best DILLIGAF salute

And then came these..

The ‘stick figure family stickers’

I know you’ve seen them

They’re fucking everywhere

And yes, I  hate them

Very, very much

I don’t understand the point of these

None of my friends have them on their cars because they’re fucking normal so I can’t ask them

Do any of YOU guys have them?

I promise not to give you shit if you can explain the purpose of them to me

‘Cause I do not, for the life of me, understand WHY you would put stickers on the back of your car to indicate how many kids / dogs / husbands you have

Maybe I’m being a bit Judgy McJudgston over here (how unusual)

But they just come across as really stupid

And then you see people who are all, well I WANT stick family stickers on my car too

But mine are going to be cool ones!

No they’re NOT

Just fucking STOP it

Really….who gives a fuck?

Not me

I don’t give a shit how many people you popped out your vag

Or how many pets you have

Cars are for driving

Not for talking on phone

Not for eating your meals in

Or doing your make up

And not NOT NOT for showing the car behind you a 2D drawing (that a 3 year could do better) of whoever the fuck has the same last name as you 

I realise it’s a bit tragic just how irritated these make me

I hope they’re a fad that dies a sudden death and never gets repeated

Unlike fluro leg warmers and side ponytails

Which, it turns out, are even MORE fab the second time around

Especially for soccer mums / comedians / opinionated moles like myself

TRUST ME.

And no, you can’t see a photo of me right now 

shit (bogan) australians say…

Have you seen some of the “Shit [insert something] Says” videos piling up on YouTube?

I’ve been laughing my arse off at a lot of them

My faves are this one and this one

Then my mate Marty suggested I give it a go so you can blame her for this

It didn’t take me long to figure out who would be saying the ‘shit’ in my vid

And before the bogans of the world get all spewy with me for taking the piss

Remember, I’m from Kalgoorlie

 

Where bogans were  INVENTED
