Long time no post....

Well that's because there's too much going on in little melly's life! All is good though, it's a good busy - and some interesting stuff has happened along the way.

A couple of weekends ago went to probably one of the most fun party's i've been to in a while. It was at McMasters, and there wasn't very many of us... but it was prefect. A slight drizzle, great music, fabulous company and loads of drinks, food and love. Thanks Ducky for thinking of us.... we had an awesome time.

I also bought 2 goldfish that weekend. Well 3, if you count the first one that died in the first 4 hours of me having him. They are called Moko (II) and Lily. Except I pretend that Moko number 1 never happened, what kind of mum am I ? Letting him die in the first 4 hours. I was devastated. Of course. They are really cute. Lily is fat, and moko is skinny. Much how I would describe me and my taste in men really.... hA! If you're wondering why I have Moko in a Ferrero Rocher chocolate box - it's because he gets sick every time i change the water, so I have to condition him until the water is right for him. Yeah i'm an over zealous mum, one night I made him sleep next to me in a noodle bowl. (COME ON HE WAS SICK!)

We had Kaiser Chiefs in the Take 40 Live Lounge last tuesday... it was an amazing gig. Once i've had some photos approved i'll show you what the set looked like. It was awesome ! You'll see the full gig on MTV soon... i got to interview the guys too... They hang out with their mums more than they hang out with Celebs. Their Celeb highlight was something about flea being naked.... hmmm you'll have to watch the interview to really find out what happened! HA!

Well V Festival is this weekend, as well as the Silverchair launch! I Can't wait for this one... should be v v v cool!!! Ya ya ya ya ya. Will post pictures. Love. xxxx

groupie stories 1.

So...... i've stored a few groupie stories in my time... and seeing an old friend tonight reminded me of something that happened not too long ago, and i've decided to share these groupie stories, most of which are not me. But friends who are in the bands targeted by groupies. I have nothing against groupies, I hate that it comes with a negative connotation. Long live the groupie. But punishing groupies must die! Just like this next story....

Band Member = BM (Cool indie rock band not from Australia just finishing a tour here)
Groupie Slut = GS (annoying groupie)

So i'm chatting with BM and he was like oh nooooo save me... i'm like What what? GS approaches.
GS: Hi do you remember me?
BM: Yes.
GS: Why didn't you call me?
BM: ummmmm.......
GS: I'm sorry for what happened...
BM: It's ok....
GS : Ok then.....
Gs turns away..... BM gives me the rundown, turns out GS has spewed on him on a previous occassion after pashing him. Come on, at least it wasn't the other way around!!!!

GS returns.....has a conversation with BM which I don't listen too and he tells me we should move on. Yeah ok, sounds good to me. I get my friend to 'entertain' GS. Friend is very good at girls....... GS is very drunk.

After a brief interlude..... of normal happenings.

GS Returns (again) UGH!!!!!
GS: Why do you keep running away from me?
BM: um, because you said sorry, and I said it was ok and now I'm going to walk away.
GS: Shakes her head iin disgust with the best negative pouty look i have seen in ages.........

We walk away. I cannot stop laughing. If I had spewed on a guy and saw him, i Think i'd say sorry and not return./ Some girls just do not get it. Especially persistent groupie sluts. BYeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

P.S Mel's drunk and I have band rehearsal in a few hours. GREAT. Jade save me.

Dumpling hunting

Thankgod the festival circuit has been extended this year! With Laneways now over... (such a festival junkie I had to go to Melbourne too) I was kinda sad. But I realised that Playground Weekender is on this weekend, which the PUNISHERZ are playing at, and V Festival is still to come. Also there is always the coachella dream again... maybe.

Melbourne was fun last week, got to hang out with Tommy who has just released his album. You can listen to the whole thing on their MYSPACE. The Punisherz will be supporting their album launch at Candy's on the 13th April. COME COME COME!!!!! It will be awesome, and you can get your dance on to Offcuts and the PUnisherz.

Melbourne seemed like a dumpling chase this time round... except we finally got to the dumpling house on my last day for lunch time! It was yummm.... thanks tommyghost. We also found some breakdancers in mall in the city late one night, whilst on the dumpling hunt. I ask them if I can take photo... they agree and I take video too!!

They give good headspin! Must have headache now!

Highlights of the melbourne laneways was st jeromes, danny, claire, the walkmen, tommy, duckpond, larry, tini, & meeting yean!

Hightlights of sydney were..... getting pissed on the balcony with Justine, perving on Lars from peter, bjorn and john, (although i'm a frontman's woman!~ ha), and the pizza.

Also you may or may not have heard about the Punisherz TOO MANY CUNTZ tour.... head to YUMI'S BLOG to find out where we'll be playing near you. There's HEAPS of dates.......
