well it ended up being a bigger weekend then i planned but much fun was had
after work thursday niterecieved a msg at like 7pm saying ther was an underground rave in west leederville. breaks. dub. dnb. etc. i was like this could be fun
so we went. and stayed all nite.. got home 5am ish after lots of dancing and randomness and me n nathan played monopoly till like 9am and nathan went home. i spent the rest of good friday trying to sleep without success and got up to watch teh biggest loser and sbs friday nite tv bet at like 1 and up at 7 to goto work saturday morning only had to work 4hour got sent home early coz it was dead bought choccie eggs for the family then went home and had a few drinks then watched the footy and it was good go the eagles. nomi went and got ee and then we all got ready for claudias fictional character dress up party. felix and ee just wen normal nomi was a kiki laa fuji des fruit. and i was G.I. Joe.. got more drunk from the free booze at the party. massive parents mansion in city beach. like three backyards... wtf.. but was good fun. stole creme eggs and ham. and left at like midnight got a few hours sleep before up early to goto mum n dads for lunch. we got ther at 10 helped mum n dad do some cooking. then everyone else arrive much good food was eaten and i got way more chocolate than i thought i was goin to get. left at like 1pm to go home n get ready for innercity. got ther with nathan alice and sara at like 3. was really empty and we found out there was no real outside area... doh.. stupid deen.. not a very enjoyable venue but a very enjoyable time
kid kenobi was on very early @ 4 til 5.30. he was awesome. danced lots played lots of fab tracks and some great new stuff
then had a break before felix the housecat @ 7.15. myself nathan n sara went n got front middle spots nathan left not long after and me n sara just danced. 2 hours worth of butt shaking. he often pointed to us and winked/smiled hes just the coolest. really crowded interactive. soo many good tracks. so many. the highlight of my day easily
after he finished dave seaman came one listened to a ocuple of tracks then met nathan n alice out the back again and went up to watch a bit of bugz in the attic. not as good as at good vibes 05 but very cool all the same. everyone else wanted to watch zinc n verse but i couldnt listen to it so ii went n sat int he wee back area. just observing and listening to the clash between dnb n electro. weird... watched two different guys throw up in the same spot and had to tell everyone that went to sit ther not to... i eventually couldnt be bothered and let someone sit down lol
listened to a bit of Audio Bullys but also not as good as last time @ bdo 04. went mid way thru there set came home and felix as still up so we sat up stairs and deep n meaningful'd all morning was greash. the kids ended up leaving at like 5.30 before the sun came up. went n snuggled for a bit then nomi came home with ee jana and a couple of others. one of the guys left early then felix went to bed and we just talked crap then went to get beer @ 10. started drinking then thru till 3 talking shit all the while. ian went realy loopy. jana passed out and gene came over. nomi went to bed so did winny. ian fell asleep and me and ee chatted as she did the dishes lol.
ee jana n winny left. then gene took ian home and iwent to bed. slept 5.30 to 10.30. caught the end of Shameless and then read abit before goin to bed again @ 1am spent y'day reading and getting sicker and sicker... massive head cold/flu thing not cool

ok so weve been here for two days. it feels like so much longer
it feels like home. bedroom is set up. balconies r set up. living room. kitchen. bathrooms. laundry. courtyard. all have our bits and pieces in them. everything is really good. feels right. comfortable. its so big too hahaha
im just so loving it right now it is truelly fantastic. am stoked we found this place
over the course of last week morning and nights we were moving stuff.. just.. stuff nothing major. like art, tables, kitchen stuff, clothes. bits n pieces yano? by friday pretty much everything was in cept for Fridge. Washer, Beds. Couches. Big Tables. and the last of the random stuff.
saturday we hired a ute and with nathans help moved all the shit from old como house onto the ute then to this house... fucking heavy.... seriously fucking heavy some of the stuff lol. im a bit sore... my calves and my arms n shoulders mostly but nothing to major which is kinda good i guess.. we were just gonna have the greens over (nathan alice sara) for drinks but a few other came too and we had an impromptu house warming.. ppl getting pissed it was cool. the big balconie is sweet. both r big but the really big one is perfect for doing stuff hehehe, its an alfresco entertaining area we got a couple of chairs n stuff up there. a wee table. its well set up.
kitty is hilarious. flipped out wen we first brought him over here. had to coax him very slowly up the staircase then he jsut hid under our bed. lol. but now hes wandering around. sitting on window sills miaoing at the outside world. sniffing about. hes defo at home now too
let me know if u wanna come visit ppl. i will see wen i have free time and try and have some ppl over. i doubt ther'll be another house warming but a couple of ppl at a time for cones. maybe dinner/a movie(the cygnet cinema is 5min walk. cafes/restaurants shops and stuff all close by.

|Wednesday, March 15th, 2006|
im gonna start this kosheen/endorphin gig post with a rant about how much i hate metros.
if u like it. u are misguided and im sorry. but im so angry with it
anyway onto the rant
ok i hated metro's before
i hate it more now!!
it was completely the wrong venue for the gig
they only had the bottom level open and that was barely if even half full
should have been at capitol or heat. probly heat. woulda worked perfectly there
now endorphins mic was fine coz it was his own set up. but as soon as kosheen came on Sians mic was fucking up. and hence fucking the sound up even more. started off with one mic that just drowned out the decks sounds wen she sang and it was all low tone. sounded really really bad. then once she got a new mic she kept getting major feed back all time. i was so annoyed for her. she was still dancing and grooving in between threatening the techies and stuff
ok more later
we got into town for dinner. had some japanese. and it was good
wen then parked down at the ent centre walked over the bridge and ther was a few ppl milling around out the front and no one really sure wat was going on. they didnt open the doors till 8.30 so everyone got pushed back half an hour to start
the first dj was quite good. very thumping. good. got better as the set went on. he played a couple of tracks from kid kenobi's breaks sessions. i cant remember the names of them. but it was cool he also threw in some missy elliot. enjoyable indeed
Endorphins set up was underneath a sheet which was pulled off to reveal and old school looking tv thing with a red neony ENDORPHIN and a white face(like a mask) on the front with flashing blue eyes. and he just popped up and started with. "Im going to start with an original compostion" sweet i thought. every track he played was great. rewind, 33, and many others i cant remember the names of. his dancer(boyfrend) was awesome several costume changes and lots of flag waving. it was super super cool. he was in a weird jester outfit first that had like 12 masks on it. and he pulled them off one by one till he had the last one on.. he also was in a plain white crash velvet jump suit with white face paint and then again later in the same outfit but with a big cape with flags. umm he was also a weird thing with lights stuck all over him. like flashing lights and stuff and one big light over his crotch. it was really cool. they finished off with the dancer in an outfit that had arms legs and a head was long pieces of air con ducting and he was waving them around it looked really great. he came out with a big john howard mask and then endorphin put on a george bush mask and proceed to fake fuck johnny around the stage.
fucking loved it!
after endorphin ti was dj flex. who was pretty good..(he was spose to go after kosheen so that put them back another half hour) lots of good thumping bass. had a good groove.
kosheen then made it on stage at just after 11. they had a sound system set up so she sang as the boys dj'd and it was good. they opened with catch but the first mic fucked up the whole way thru so with a new mic in her hand Sian sed "HOW BOUT WE PLAY THAT FOR YOU AGAIN?!" we all screamed yes. adn tthey did and it was awesome!
(got to hear catch twice. yay!)
after catch was hide u. mmmmmm fuck she just sounds amazing. she can sing. she really can. wen the mic was working it blew me away. after hide u sian asked the crowd "are you hungry?" a few ppl kinda shrugged. i was like YES!! IM ALWAYS HUNGRY!!!
mmmm. more sound and mic fuck ups ensued during this song which made her even more annoyed
thru every song ther was feed back and sound fuck ups. she was really getting angry threating the sound booth and such. im surprised she didnt throw the mic.
she finished up by singing all in my head. i practically wet myself. she was just so good but after the song stormed off stage
she did well to last as long as she did... all this and they were on stage for about 40mins or so. after she went off stage one of the guys stayed and mixed and played some good tracks and most ppl were staying to dance. but it was time to go home.. and am here now ... but as usual have to write this whilst its fresh int he mind
all in all it was a pretty good nite
just that i hate metros.
anyway im just glad i got to see them again.
i do really love kosheen.
now next gig = sigur ros april 9th
with a possibility of blues and roots the nite before!

|Sunday, March 12th, 2006|
well all in all its been very good
y'day was spose to work 8-1 but one of the girls went home sick... so had to stay and extra 2 n a bit hours.. i was just disgruntled and feeling tired an emotional.. i dont know why.. feeling a bit pressured but the whole moving scenario
got home and relaxed in the arvo. cooked some pasta for dinner watched iron chef then get a msg about going out.. i say why no
so with nath alice n sara we went to ambar... we got there around midnight.. wasnt very full.. wasnt all nite.. enough ppl but enough room too hehe.
had a couple of beers at home then a tequila shot with sara to start us off there.. had a few bourbon n cokes and ended up a little tiddly. danced alot. then came back here and hung for a bit with them then everyone left n i went to bed around 6am...
up at 10am... and because we have an inspection next thursday and today is like our only day off together and felix was just telling me to clean and i was feeling a bit crap with him telling what to do but i know hes just frustrated about the house and quitting smoking and all that.. all worked out we then at around 11. went to go start looking at some houses.. we were heading down mary st which is one street back from melville pde which is the st that runs along sth perth/como from mill point down to canning hwy along the freeway side... well as we were driving along mary looking for a number and we remember ther was a number on melville that was before the one on mary so we turned on melville to find it but we saw a big orange FOR LEASE sign so we turned into the driveway saw a bmw in it (we thought it was the r'estate agents) so we went in to have a look. turns out it was the owners who were just checking some things before the open..
ok first let me discribe it ther is a two carport which is greash then a cute walled garden infrot of the front door. as soon as u walk in is the staircase upstairs on ur left but thru to a nice lowered dining area and a really nice big kitchen. lots of space. thru the kitchen ther is a laundry with an entry+cat door(yes kitty a cat flap for you) on your left and a bedroom and a bathroom on the right.
then upstairs is a bit living area thats carpeted with a small balcony on the right at the front and on the left hand side ther is a massive balcony that u could put a dining setting on its sweeeeet. also ther is a nice big bedroom. all high ceilings. they look realy cool. and one wall is all cupboards BUT ther is a secret.. the middle door is actually the entry to the ensuite!! its very cool a shower and a loo in there and its set. also it has foxtel connections which is perfect
now we gotta chatting to the couple. in their forties. hes a doctor and turns out mightve worked with felix they know some of the same ppl. anyway we were talking and turns out they were gonna paint the place and so we decided to put an offer forward. down the rent to 250 a week and we'll paint it. they are supplying the paint and we just paint it... fucking cool. so yes they were very very keen and so are we.. i think we might have a winner!! they just havta talk to their agents.
but yes. its very exciting.. literally around the corner which will make moving very easy. very nice place.

|Monday, February 6th, 2006|
ok heres a post about something that may or may not offend ppl
not to be to blase about it but the whole "muslim thing".
im sick of hearing every fucking day about the shit that is going on
i hate the fact that ppl are just fucked up.
the muslim faith has produced a whole load of fucked up persons.
tens of thousands of ppl rioting over a small cartoon strip.
if christians went out rioting and bombing ppl everytime they took the piss out of "God" and "Jesus" etc.. we'd be in some serious shit.
how can so many persons of this faith be so blind.
religion in general im not fond of... im sure most of you know this
believing in a false idol. in things that never happend.
because you think your god is better than someone elses god it gives you and excuse to go and blow someone up?? mmm real logical
what kind of thinking is that?
it digusts me that this shit has to go on. everyday where hear about it. see a report on the news about a bomb going off here. and rioting there. angry ppl here. and then the ppl trying to make it right
if you have a belief dont shove it in eveyrones faces and throw it down there throat. its my way or the highway.. what shite.
argh it just makes me angry and i need to rant. sorry...
ive met and know loads of muslims and they really arnt bad ppl. if this was a small minority of the group as a whole. like mormons / christains or something it wouldnt be so bad... but its such a frequent thing thats just everywhere
why does this need to happen
as naussicaa said "no more killing"
what does it achieve. except pain and grief.
*insert frustrated face here*
i could go on into a rant about all my objections to the christian and catholic faiths but im not going to
lets just say i disagree with religion and leave it at that.
thank you for reading
sorry once again if i offended anyone
it really doesnt matter what/if you have a faith. you can and still be a great person.
just dont knock on my front door telling me about it.
