Byron Bay Bluesfest

So Malli and me went to the Byron Bay Blues fest on the last day of the festival. But it didn't start that well...

With a hangover, stress and a weak psychic I puked a few times on the way to Byron Bay, mmmh great start. 

Finally arriving it's raining like hell and the ground was just a field of mud that you sank deep in to. Naive as we were we only had canvas shoes on us that of course got soaked with wet mud straight away. Wiiieee another great start. Cold and wet foots for the next 20 hours! Then we realised another problem: We forgot to bring cash. The $20 we found in our pockets wouldn't feed or get us close to drunk. And according to the festival map there was no way to pay with card and there were NO ATM's. GREAT! here we were wet, cold, no money and I was still feeling sick. 

We had a second look at the map and saw a symbol for ATM’s.. Strange, it said that there were none? So we followed the map and BOOM there stood 3 cash machines ready to pump money. Wohoo finally some luck, we bought some food, a few beers and everything seemed a lot nicer.

But our feet were still wet. No way I was gonna walk around in these muddy shoes for the rest of the day. So we went by the tent were they sold gumboots. $*Ka-ching*$ Yeah! Dry warm feet, cold beer, awesome music and hippies- now we’re talking.

We saw a guy Kim Churchill, little bit like Xavier Rudd but without the didgeridoo. And he really blew us away, he had so much energy and are really talented. Check him out folks!

We camped close to one of the big stages to wait for the main attractions, and saw a few random artists. But the reason we were there was of course for Elvis Costello and BOB DYLAN!

I recon these guys were very happy about the rain and mud 
because they had heaps of fun crawling around in it..

Mr. Costello is so cool. And he really got the audience to rock with him. And Mr. Dylan, WHOO what a guy. Even tho he’s so old and his voice is cracking and rusty he gave us a concert we’ll never forget. Great pick of songs and very good versions of them. Bob Dylan: I have a crush on you.

I know the pics are so bad, but its hard to get a good one
with a bad camera and e few meters away. 
But here he is: Mr.Bob Dylan him self!

So after all music, all beers and all nice people, the festival ground closed down. And since me and Malli didn’t have any luck finding a hostel for the night, the search began for a place to sleep. After walking around for a while we decided to set up our nest near the bus stop since the bus was picking us up 6 in the morning. We found a big traffic sign to lie on and had a half open party tent that protected us from the cold wind and icy rain. It was a horrible night. So bloody cold and uncomfortable but we made it trough and everything was totally worth it because it was one of the best festivals I’ve ever been to.

Fear and Loathing at Brisbane Casino

So we went to the casino the other night. Did we win? NO of course not. You really have to spend money to win money, but I'm too much of a pussy to do that right now.  We did have a good night anyway tho and met two quite funny and totally pissed oz guys that claimed they were from Italy haha, yeah sure "ill chetriolo bello" to you too. next time at least try to fake an italian accent and it might help.

Dusty dirty

This is how you might look like after a normal working day at the warehouse, at least  if your name is Yella. But it's not only my hands that might look like this. My whole body is usually covered by the dust. It find its way under my clothes and colour the skin grey. Even my buggers in my nose is black! But it just shows I'm a busy worker!



I think my body was trying to tell me something today when I was digging in to my juicy Mc Donald's meal. And the message was not to eat it, because after my first bite my arms started to spasm and as a result my whole meal ended up all over the dirty floor, mmm yum! Chicken bacon deluxe with luxury golden hairs in it, what a meal!

I don't like mondays

Nothing special today. Just work. And it's been pissing down rain all day and it's fucking freezing.. depressing. So to match this miserable day Im just gonna chill with Tom Waits. Give me some of that smokey whiskey voice of yours and tell the world that the piano has been drinking- not me.

What shall we do with a drunken sailor?

Found this video we recorded ages ago. It was pirate night at world bar and along the night we got this brilliant idea to make a beer bong of one of the plastic hooks we had. No time to waist the idea was born and we left the bar as soon as we could and headed for the bottle shop to gets some booze. Of course was all the bottle shops closed so we had to take what we had at home which was a few cans of guinness. Not my favourite, especially when you have to down it, but desperate times calls for desperate measures.

The highlight of today was a new hair colour. Not that I didn't like the blonde I had, but the outgrow was getting to much and I looked like a tacky white trash trailer mum. so I did an attempt to cover it up a bit, with a dark ash blonde. The result is kinda alright. It's a little bit greyish in the ends but defo an improvement.

Useless blogging

Ok, Im terrible at blogging. But the reason for the the lack of posts is that I felt nothing has been interesting enough to write about. But then I reminded myself that my blog is suppose to be full of shit, that's what 90 % of all the other blogs is full of anyway. So Im gonna try to fill my blog with useless stuff again. Try to highlight the moments of gold in my (at this point) kinda boring everyday life.

Im gonna start with when Baby and me drank way to many bottles of wine the other night and thought it was time to smash my old computer á la rock'n'roll cliché style.. hey hey hey- NO, not throw it out of the window, just smash it to the ground and fuck around with all the bits and pieces. 


We found a cool thingi in the screen, it's like see-trough-plastic 
that reflects you like a mirror but from behind, scary stuff..
