Embarassing Story

I have always had injection phobia and the fear of getting a shot has even caused me to pass out from the stress. In the 7th grade, it was "shot day" and the nurse would periodically call out names over the intercom informing the unlucky ones of their impending doom. I wasn't paying real close attention when the next name was called, but the girl in front of me got up, left the room and was gone for a suitable length of time. When she came back, the room was very quiet and I spoke up (so everyone could clearly hear me) and asked her if it hurt much. She gave me a really strange look and the teacher seemed outraged that I should ask such a question. Everyone else just snickered. At that point, the teacher politely pointed out to me that my fellow student had just returned from the john.

What A Trooper

Last night I found my old Storm Trooper outfit from when I was in Starwars Epsiode 4. The first Starwars. You are probably wondering which Storm Trooper I was. I was the one that bumped his head as he came through the door into the room where C3PO and R2-D2 was. It hurt like hell.

What you will never see or hear is that it knocked me out and I got a bad concussion. I was rushed to hospital and they released me later on in the afternoon. Unfortunately it kept production on hold that they got a replacement storm trooper. It was my clone. Remember Starwars Episode 2 - Attack of the clones? (this is the one before the first Starwars). You have no idea how far fact seperates itself from fiction. You see I was one of those clones. George Lucas wanted the authenticity of real clones and I nominated myself for the cloning program.

My other clone lives in America and works for Donald Trump. He got his break after Donald Trump saw him as one of the rejects in the crowd on American Idol. Unlike my other clone counterpart, I can sing.

Alrighty, so I don't have any proof of any of this. I don't have proof that I was the guy under the helmet. But I did end up getting this photo of me on the can. This was taken like over 20 years ago. I was at one of the secret scene locations for starwars. I was taking a toilet break for goodness sake and they found out where I was and walked right in and took this photo. I chased after the guy and proceeded to bash the crap out of him and I took his camera and got this photo developed.

Enjoy!

Music Monday: Australia Day Edition

Welcome to Music Monday

Here is the best Aussie Song ever: Down Under by Men At Work


According to the Herald Sun the worst songs are as follows

1. Tamara Jaber: Ooh Aah
THERE'S so much wrong with this record. Firstly the lyrics: Jaber, who was discovered in Popstars flop stars Scandal'us actually sings ‘‘Ooh aah, I lost my bra, I left it in my boyfriend's car'' and ‘‘Boys are rotten made outta cotton, girls are sexy made outta Pepsi''. Inspiring stuff. Then there was the nepotism factor. Jaber's song and big-budget video were paid for by boyfriend (now husband) Kyle Sandilands, who released it on his King Kyle record label. Why? Because no one else wanted it. Her album is still to surface and the only person who played this song on radio was - surprise surprise - Sandilands. Conspiracy theory: either someone's removed this song from YouTube or no one could be bothered putting it up.

2. Jacko: I'm an Individual
MELBOURNE'S singing footballer Russell Robertson sounds like Frank Sinatra compared to Jacko, who didn't let let a total inability to sing burden him. This 1985 hit is surely the only time the phrase ‘‘inda-bloody-vidual'' has been heard in a recording studio. Impressively the follow up, Me Brain Hurts, is even worse. To think that his manager at the time, Terry Blamey, would go on to steer the career of Kylie Minogue.

3. Warwick Capper: I Only Take What's Mine
BLAME Jacko. A jealous Capper hit the studio after seeing I'm an Individual become a novelty hit. Capper busted out the tight shorts for the video but even they didn't help him hit the high notes in this diabolical song. Or any notes for that matter.
Here's Warwick, giving it his all for I Only Take What's Mine

4. Noeline Donaher: No Regrets
SOMEONE had the bright idea of using three of Noeline Donaher's 15 minutes of post-Sylvania Waters fame to record a cover of the classic. Except she couldn't sing and it sold by the thimbleful.
Noeline goes electric with No Regrets

5. Nikki Webster: Strawberry Kisses
POOR Nikki wanted to be a pop star after her Olympic glory. She was ahead of her time - with her nasal voice and tween-pop she was doing what Hilary Duff and Miley Cyrus would take to the masses. Sadly Nikki just had an annoying, poxy pop song that sounded like something Britney rejected.
Check out Nikki's post-Olympic efforts

6. The Vaughans: Who Farted?
THIS novelty hit stinks in so many ways. The kind of record polluting second hand stores across the land.

7. Lee Harding: Wasabi
HE was the ‘punk' of Australian Idol who ditched his band for the TV show. It wasn't a good year for Idol - this was the season that inflicted Kate DeAraugo on us. Harding came third but somehow made No.1 with this teen-punk-by-numbers turkey that rhymed ‘‘tsunami' with ‘‘army''. He now resides in the where are they now? file. Along with DeAraugo.

8. Bruce Samazan: One of a Kind
FOR a few minutes everyone on TV show E Street tried putting a record out. This ended it all. His rap makes Britney's ex Kevin Federline sound like Jay-Z.

9. Stefan Dennis: Don't It Make You Feel Good
EVERYONE else from Neighbours was releasing records, so Stefan Dennis tried it too. Bouncer would have done a better job.

10. Skyhooks: Jukebox in Siberia
SKYHOOKS wrote some amazing singles. This isn't one of them. Their comeback was brief after this and the equally terrible Happy Hippy Hut. Not the way the band, or Shirley Strachan, should be remembered.

11. Dave and the Derros: Nice Legs, Shame About the Face
PUB rock novelty hit that was really all about the title. The follow up was Up Your Nose With a Rubber Hose.

12. The Whitlams: Chunky Chunky Air Guitar
SOMETIMES you can judge a book by the cover; this was left off the band's recent best of compilation so as to not contravene the Trade Practices Act.

13. Joe Dolce: Shaddap You Face
DEBATE rages over whether this - one of the most successful Australian songs ever - is pop genius or insanely annoying. Try listening to it ten times over.

14. Rus Le Roq: I Want To Be Like Marlon Brando
RUSSELL Crowe under an early alias; he'd later commit musical crimes as part of Thirty Odd Foot of Grunts.

15. John Farnham: Sadie the Cleaning Lady
COME on: even he hates it!

Top 10 stinky covers: they didn't write them, but they ruined them:
Collette: Ring My Bell
Craig McLachlan & Check 1,2: Mona
Teen Queens: Be My Baby
The Chantoozies: Witch Queen
Madison Avenue: Reminiscing
Freaked Out Flower Children: Spill the Wine
Jason Donovan: Sealed With a Kiss
Rolf Harris: Hand in My Pocket
Shannon Noll: C'mon Aussie C'mon
Ernie Sigley & Denise Drysdale: Hey Paula

Whats your worst Aussie song ever?

What Makes Australia Great: Aussie Inventions

Well before Federation in 1901, Australians had demonstrated how innovative they were. Thousands of years ago, Indigenous Australians developed tools like fish traps, boomerangs and woomeras to assist with hunting. They lived in harmony with nature using the native flora and fauna as a source of food and medicine.

What Makes Australia Great - What do you reckon?

To celebrate Australia day on 26th January and I'm developing a list of things that make Australia great. This list is going to be on the blog on 26th January. Please leave a comment on our blog with your list or idea on what makes Australia great. I'm going to take all these comments and put it into one big list. It can be anything really. Everyday you'll see a new entry about my thoughts and ramblings about what I think makes Australia great. I understand that some of you are not Aussie but that shouldn't stop you from adding to this list.

What Makes Australia Great - The Castle


It may be pretentious of me to label The Castle the funniest Australian comedy ever made, but that’s probably not far from the truth.

This film comes from the Working Dog production company, who were responsible for the classic Aussie TV show Frontline as well as variety news and entertainment talkie The Panel. Working Dog star Rob Sitch directs The Castle with tasteful, silly and intelligent humour, complemented with a breezy and effortlessly energetic rythtem.

The Castle is a small guy versus the big guys film that has a sentimental emotional core, and many jokes are derived from the story of a charming family defending their home against a compulsory acquisition.

Performances from a talented Australia cast breathe life into a bunch of quirky but lovable characters. Michael Caton is especially great as the father of the family, Darryl Kerrigan, a lovable oaf with a heart of gold. Veteran actor Charles (Bud) Tingwell also appears as a wise lawyer who takes it upon himself to defend the Kerrigans.

The script was written by Santo Cilauro, Tom Gleisner, Jane Kennedy and Sitch - all regulars on TV’s The Panel. They have a sound sense of joke timing, and how to keep audiences interested. The Castle is a rare find; a funny, wonderful piece that shines in its own homely, honest way.

It is common in Australia to humorously quote lines from "The Castle". Some of the most popular of these are:
  • What do you call this? (in reference to obvious items)
  • Tell 'em they're dreaming!
  • A man's home is his castle.
  • It's not a house, it's a home.
  • Dale dug a hole.
  • That is going straight to the Pool Room.
  • How's the serenity? So much serenity!
  • It's what you do with it.
  • It's the vibe.
Director: Rob Sitch
Cast: Michael Caton, Anne Tenney, Stephen Curry, Sophie Lee, Anthony Simcoe, Charles (Bud) Tingwell, Wayne Hope, Tiriel Mora, Eric Bana

What Makes Australia Great: Steven Bradbury

Australia day is coming on January 26 so I thought it was time to kick off this years edition of What Makes Australia Great.

Steven Bradbury is an incredible sportsman. He is well-known of his gold medal win in the men’s short track 1000 meters during Olympic Games Salt Lake City 2002. In the final, Bradbury was in last place, but then all his opponents - Apolo Anton Ohno, Ahn Hyun-Soo, Li Jiajun and Mathieu Turcotte, crashed out at the final corner. Steven was completely shocked. It was first gold medal for Australia in the history. After winning his medal, he said: “Obviously I wasn’t the fastest skater. I don’t think I’ll take the medal as the minute-and-a-half of the race I actually won. I’ll take it as the last decade of the hard slog I put in.”

Shes a little beauty

I went fishing today with my friend Bruce. I had never been fishing before in my whole entire life but he had. I've always wanted to go fishing and I thought "Well Why Not". So we set off at 5am to this nice little spot. We were sitting around waiting without a bite for about 4 hours.

Bruce went to the can and then all of a sudden I felt a yank and I had caught something. It was a struggle. And it was only me and the thing. It wasn't going to give up without a fight. About 10 mins later Bruce came back and he helped me bring this in. We knew it was big but we didn't know how big. Finally after an hour we finally brought it in and it was huge. Infact if I tried to describe the size of the beast my arms would disclocate. But luckly I got this photo!

Coming to America

Elena and I have some great news. We're coming to America for Christmas this year. It's been 3 years since Elena has been back to the states. I on the other hand have never been to the US of A. Just like Eddie Murphy, I'm looking forward to experiencing what it's like to be a 'real American'. I really don't know what to expect. The only country I've been to is New Zealand back in '05. The only American food I've experienced is stuff from the USA food's shop in Melbourne.

We are hoping to be in the US for at least a month or so. We've written down a list of 50 plus things to check out. One of the things I want to do is to be in the Audience of Dave Letterman and perhaps check out Rupert Gee's Hello Deli around the corner. Picture our experience as cross between Coming To America and National Lampoons Vacation where the Grizwalds travel across america to go to Wally World (Hey another thing to add to our list).

We finally did chatted via webcam and mic with Elena's dad and co yesterday and for the first time they could see the 3 of us live 20,000 miles away. If you want to talk to us then add elliott4u to your friend list in skype.

We're on the lookout for any idea's of what to see or do while we're over there. I'm kind of partial to seeing my first live NFL game, if someone can explain the rules to me. Whatever we do over there, it should be sweet.
