So I managed to score a ticket to Flipper's first ever Auckland show. And it was unbelievable. Possibly the best concert I've ever been to, and I've been to a lot.
But the best part, the crowning fuckin glory, was the final song, Sex Bomb. Where members from the crowd got to sing. Well, scream "Sex Bomb Baby" and yell like demented banshees. But that's neither here nor there.
Anyway, the guy next to me in the front row got up and went at it. Then I decided to grab the second mike. For five minutes...five fuckin minutes - I was the lead singer of Flipper. And those were five of the greatest minutes of my life.
So if you ever...ever get the chance to see Flipper live, do not miss it. They may be in their 60s (well, Bruce and Ted at least), but those two rock harder than any other 60 year olds (and yes, that includes the classic rock dinosaurs like the Rolling Stones and the Who).
We meet again. Only this time it was for abusing WTFisATAB. I'll be honest here - I saw this one coming for a while, it was just a question of when. During my time away from UG, I plan to seek anger management therapy, travel, study art appreciation...oh, who am I kidding. I'll just go party more frequently.
Although I will be travelling - first to Sydney to my parents' place after exams finish, then to India for two weeks to visit some family, or as I prefer to see it, get picked apart by family members I never see and hate (although, as Randy so succintly put it, I hate everyone) and if all else fails, reminded that I'm the least favourite. So I would have been off for a while anyways.
Alfred - if your parents do see me flaming you, I can only hope they take Jenny's words into account and get you off the computer and doing something constructive. And for God's sake, if they don't at least take some of the more constructive advice in the thread to heart (i.e. everyone's but mine) if you want anyone to take your recommendations seriously.
Kyle - I won't lie - I am pissed that you of all mods banned me, but I know that you pretty much had to given your perogative as a mod.
Everyone else - I'll be back in a couple of months. Maybe with some sweet new gear? Watch this space.
