Kaiser Chiefs @ Festival Hall (6th August 2007)

The Kaiser Chiefs played Festival Hall on Monday night in Melbourne. And they absolutely rocked.

Support acts Operator Please and Wolf & Cub got the crowd warmed up then they came on and played a good (but short) set then came back and did a few more songs for the 'encore'. (Not sure whey they still call it that, *of course* they're going to come back on stage for a few more songs!)

I am hoping to go see The Killers in November when they're out....

I Hate Mondays.

Even if I started work on a Thursday, I think I would still hate Mondays.

Save Jericho!


At 2 p.m. on May 16, 2007, CBS announced its 2007-2008 primetime slate. Jericho was not on it. The network has decided that it wasn't worth the fight to relaunch it for a second season.

Jericho's fans think differently. Over the past season Jericho, Kansas has become
the place we faithfully visit every Wednesday night (and for some - on several additional nights during the week). It has become our second home.

This is where we make our stand!

We are tired of the networks (not just CBS) tossing aside quality programming. Most of us have never tried to fight for a TV show. But some thing is different about this one - It is like no show that has been on TV before. Throughout the year it has made us think - now it has made us stand up and say - ENOUGH! We're going to fight for this one.

Why nuts? In the final episode Jake Green (Skeet Ulrich) borrowed the historic phrase "NUTS" in response to a final offer of surrender from a hostile neighboring town. CBS decided to cancel the show, and fans are uprising to save Jericho by sending, you got it, NUTS to CBS executives.

Bring back Jericho, CBS!! And Channel Ten are now bringing back the rest of Season 1 just to disappoint further masses of viewers in Oz, by simply deciding not to air a Season 2! (In fact, I think it lost against that 'Kidstown' cheap-reality-cereal-box crap they call reality-tv!)

Well enough ranting. I decided to make a small contribution to the huge shipment of NUTS going to CBS offices - it's currently at just over 17,000 lbs (just under 8 tonnes) so far!!

The sun is shining...but clouds hang low...

Well 2006 has gone and another year is at our feet once again.

The trip to Indonesia to see my mother's family in November was very therapeutic and humbling. I am making a promise to go and visit more regularly as this time was the first time in 18 years that I had gone there. Unfortunately this time, without my mother although she was with me every step of the way in spirit.

My trip to Kupang has made me understand more about where my mum has come from - not only geographically speaking but also in terms of the challenges she faced in her country as well as when she arrived in Australia. What a culture shock that must have been at the young age of only 26! And she had me at the age of 27.

I am now 29 and turning 30 this year. I wish that mum was here to see me turn 30 and see me enjoying my job. I wish she was here to invite over so that M can cook for her and I can look after her for once.

Dad is doing well and is heading to South India in just under 2 weeks time. This is something he (and I, although I won't be going this time) have always wanted to do in our lives. I pray that he will have a safe journey and return with many wonderful stories and enlightening experiences.

On a lighter note however, I was privileged to be a guest on Dopefiend's weekly Podcast show! A must-listen for all 420-ers out there! If you like music, I highly recommend listening to The Sounds of World Wide Weed too!
