    Solo77 ... I shall think of you in your intoxicated, e-ed up state, stumbling around in the hot sun, as I sit in my corporate box drinking the free drinks and eating the free food, having parked my car in the VIP carpark and entered using my free ticket.

    I'm not looking forward to going to work on Friday ... I just know half the people will be on 'sick' leave and we'll be really understaffed. Maybe I should get mysteriously sick myself :)

    STH

    Yes but will you be having as much FUN as me? You've got to be down in the action getting amongst it, you know at the grass root level, with the sweaty bodies and semi naked chicks and the bass trying to knock you off your feet! You're out of touch with your common man! :D

    Actually i am very jealous, any chance of 'accidentally' letting me sneak on up? I'm not a bad guy, i don't eat much and i keep to myself....well ok so thats a lie.....

    I got a free ticket and a ride to and from so i'm happy :cool:

    man, I will be down at the front, punching my fist in the air and shouting "YES" with the best of them. I can tell you now that tomorrow will be a marathon session of shouting and fist pumping. It's just kinda appealing to have some place to back to in those gaps between bands.

    and sadly, no, I'm not allowed to let any non-VIP tagged people into the box. Sorry ...

    I can imagine,

    Yes //waves fist// Yes YES //waves fist// yes yes YES yes.

    Maybe you'll fit in more if it was "YEAH!"

    :p

    I worked 12.5 hours today on Dutch Elm Disease, and working survey work in Mt Albert tomorrow, then heading to the zoo for drinking (one or two, as I'll have to drive home probably) and laxing.

    Sat night will be huge though. I'm gonna get a heap of $$$ for the previous fornight. Should be good, haven't got boozey-eyed since my 21st, and even then, that was fairly dosile.

    You're going to look quite the fool STH. For Yes are not playing the BDO.

    I rank them right up there with Heart & Pat Benetar in my "makes me want to ram pencils in my ears to stop the audio assault" stakes.

    saw some great bands yesterday ... particularly

    The Donnas
    The Phoenicx Foundation (always great)
    Le Tigre (fantastic feminist pop/hip-hop/disco/electroclash)
    Evermore
    The Mint Chicks
    The Polyphonic Spree (amazing, with all 24 members on stage, the oout-Flaming Lipped The Flaming Lips)
    Dimmer (with a very nonchalant Anika Moa on backing vocals)

    Also, let it be said that System Of A Down are the worst band in the entire world. Honestly, I've never heard such moronic drivel being shouted at an audience from a frontman. Slipknot were just as bad musically, but at least they don't take themselves too seriously.

    1. Beastie Boys
    2. The Hives
    3. Shihad
    4. The Donnas
    5. Steriogram

    Also saw a guy in the shihad mosh with, two great tats an old school obi wan and yoda on his bicep, was pretty cool

    best tatoos ever seen at the BDO ... a woman with pictures of all four members of INXS on her arms. Even INXS wouldn't be rock'n'roll enough to do that!

    Now that's commitment.

    These tats were really well done, i tried to take a pxt of them but when i checked them he moved a bit so could only see half. then tried again and got a weird look so bailed..........

    Funny, as INXS was a 6 piece.

    I hope they also get a tat of the new singer once the forthcoming reality show finds him / her.

    Yea, LOL. I was like, "oh, that was JP".

    hehehe

    Solo had about 25 pxt's on his cell, I'd say 17 were of chicks. And funnily enough they were the only ones in focus, :p

    They're having a reality show to find a new member of INXS? //shakes head. I kinda feel they should have retired after Michael's death.
