It was the year that....

I counted down in LA... randomly. Downtown party... to a party in the hills, to a party @ the roosevelt.

It was the year that I went on the Big Day Out Tour with work. Highlights included Soulwax, M.I.A, Cut Copy,The Mars Volta, Wolfmother.

It was the year that the punisherz put their money where their mouth was at started rehearsing. We played Dj sets first, but it was always about the band. Highlights were: Splendour In the Grass, First show Ever (sept 11), Going on tour with Jump 2 light Speed....

It was the year that I went back to the States for my birthday. LA & NYC. Highlights, Coachella, NYC with Dan (and all those parties). My friends.

It was the year Garth came home. So glad you're home.....xx

It was the year that I made friends with birds on my balcony.

It was the year that I resigned from my Job.

It was the year that I got an amazing fantastic new job, thanks to one of my best friends who I will always adore. G. XOXO

I'm so scared.

Yumi just told me Wolfmother finish @ 11.40pm on Nye. We're not on till 11.45, and there's no one else on another stage till midnight. So we're the sole band doing the countdown @ falls festival @ lorne on NYE. Someone save me, please tell me different, or get me reaaaaaallllll drunk. Please.

can someone please

Buy me this dress for christmas?

I saw it ages ago and I thought it was so beautiful, and now i've seen it online again, and it's eating me away!

In other news, I went to Robbie Williams on Sunday night. You know what? That guy can have any ego he wants i've decided. To have THAT many people all in the palm of your hand is pretty amazing. Two of those stadium shows in every city, I was more amazed by the audience than him though. It was a good show, but the crowd was HUUUUGEEEEE... i don't know the exact numbers for Aussie Stadium, but fuck.

After party: not that great. It was a weird venue... the papers tipped the "secret location" to be Aussie John's 30 Million dollar pad in Point Piper, which I was really excited about, but it wasn't there at all. Same view, but closer, as in IN THE Opera house. Bennelong to be exact. The dance floor was crammed in a narrow space right next to the bar, so if you were waiting to be served you kinda had to dance at the same time, or get knocked over.

Robbie was a no show, his band rocked up, but seriously after a show like that I probably would want to take a few birds back to my room and just hang out there. I don't know what Robbie did though. ha. Most exciting part of the night was me finding a bottle of vodka and walking around with it for a while before it got taken off me.

There was a mix of celebs there, mostly ones from Australian soaps that I don't know their names of. A couple of girls who were dressed like they were from the 90' G and I discussed, they were definitely a Vice Don't, but when they started kissing each other, they turned into a Vice Do. I wish I took a photo. There was the drunk vegan (not G) who smashed a champers glass and didnt even notice, and ran to the toilet to have a little spew. Then there was me, vodka stealing non-celebrity spectacular.

vegemite = goodness....

So yeah... friday night and I didnt want to go out. Last week was a bit too hectic, and I need to lay down. So I go to a screening of HAPPY FEET with G and get relaxed. Such a cute movie, pretty scary too. It made me want to tap dance all again. I guess when I think about it, It hasn't been that long since i've ripped out a tap routine. It was very cool.

So came home and decided its summer, its party season, im going out. So call Alana, and she's on her way to the Electric party, so I get my kit on and head on over. Its on the same street I live on practically and just a walk home if its devastating. Not that bad when we get there. Phil's band The Lost Gospel played, I told him the punisherz wrote a song about him.... "put your hands up if you're drunk". .... he said.... is it a shit song? And i said yeah... he said.... yeah I hate music... i was like cool we cant play music. So we got that settled. Then, The goons of doom were on, who the punisherz will eternally hate, just coz, and before they went on, they said to me. "This is going to sound really fucked up, because we're all on acid, I said.... you guys sound fucked up all the time... in a bad way!!". Good those fuckers. Goons of Doom. Whatever. You know what, I dont really hate you guys, you're kinda cute, but yeah, you're shitter than the punisherz. And in teh end, you got where you were because of who you know as well. SO we're all on the same kinda team. BUT collectivelly. The punisherz Do hate You. ok? You and TEENAGERS IN TOKYO.

Speaking of asian delights, G and i went asian food shopping before the movie. I was in a sweet mood, and bought all these sweet asian treats. I can't read asian and just looked a pictures, like usual. And anyway, I bought three things. One seaweed noodle item, one chocolate biscuit item, and one pineapple cake thing. I got into G's car and proceeded to taste each thing one by one... (and i nibble things i dont know about, i mean nibble miniscule proportions) and i HATED every single one of them. if any of you would like the left overs, feel free to come over and eat them. They are so sweet and disgusting. I cook good food. you dont need this shit. Hence, dont go shopping when you're hungry.

Anyway. Very drunk now, walked home, took the heels off.... stumbled through the cross to the point for some clean sheet loving, vegemite on turkish and my laptop. And Im happy and home.

This week was soooo hectic. Launched our new studio on Thursday called the Take 40 Live Lounge... Sandi Thom performend and it looked so pretty. You'll be able to see it on the web @ early next week. She even wanted to take home part of the set, which we gladly gave her, she wanted one of the table lamps. I cant wait to do more shows in there, it's really exciting.

Friday night was the ksubi(tsubi)/modular party. Rocked up with Ash and Sal, and the place was packed and mental. It was like a smarties box where everyone looked the same, but different colours. Some really good bands played like The Ghosts and the Klaxons, also saw a bit of New Young Pony Club. They were cute and cool. The Doof dance area, was on a go kart rink!!! I saw gabe, It was soooo good to see him! I love you. xxx

As if all that wasn't enough, I also put my had up to work on the publicity team for the day @ homebake this year. I was looking after Channel [V] today. Seeing everyone was great! Didn't get to see many bands because I was running around like a mad chook all day, but I did get a few songs in of the Valentino's who were just in Japan with the Presets who I also got to see (their first time back home since Splendour!YAY!), and I got to see the entire Silverchair set. I forgot how much I love these guys. In the third song I found myself crying. It was like old days. Karina, I wish you were there!!! They played freak, and I could feel the side stage floor lifting! It was so incredible.

A few drinks later it was all over, and hunger started to settle in. Jeremy kept trying to cook me a virtual burger, but it wasn't the same. So Claire decided to go steal some chips out of the Hilltop Hoods dressing room. These guys are the biggest Aussie hip hop act and they love the punisherz, so they rock. Anyway, Claire went in stole some chips which all the hoods witnessed, and then she delightfully shared a few with them before she walked away with the entire packet. She then was walking back towards us, then she turned around to the guys, and said.... "Hey guys!..... REPREZENT!!!!!"..... hahahahahaha it was the FUNNIEST thing ever! They were stunned and didnt know how to react, but after about a 2 second pause they all went " heyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!"... hahaha so hilarious. The chips were good, they semi-saved me.

After that we waited for Jade to wrap her shoot and we were outta there. She had to hire a car for the day because her bf took their one, and all that was left at the place was a convertible!!! it was funny. It was pissing down with rain and we piled in and put the roof down!!! On the way to the after party Ducky and I wrote a song called PINGA. That's for you Ducky. I will sing it when we go on tour with you. PINGA PINGA PINGA... hahahahaa.

The after party was fun. Justine came and met us, and I was dancing until I fell over. Jade had to take me home. Now im hungry, because I still didnt get to eat. Im going to have breakfast with claire. REPREZENT.
