more random aussie pics

Like, what the hell can this place be? that is a funny name though. I had to explain to an australian friend that this would be funny in the states, he didn't get it.
This was on the door of the place we played in Wellington, NZ. I can't explain this one either. 
Jay's new tattoo. Some kids came and offered up free tat's and they all jumped on the offer. billy got a tattoo of his dog, but the double flying V's are a good edition to the Einstein above.
This is Steven throwing a ball at Randy while he was in the dunk tank, I am pretty sure he missed. 
Cool kids from Brisbane.
Me and Steven. 
Found this near the trash, was hoping there was another brand called MIKA, but no dice. The images on the can are funny, I think they are sea vegetables, don't know why you would fry sea veggies, but that's cool.
My art. I opened up a store out there, got pretty into the area, I hired a kangaroo as the manager.
An Australian add. Sexy gummo was on the side of a huge building.

They have plain Dorito's out there, they also have it in England. I was telling someone that it was so crazy, and they asked what flavors we had, i said "nacho cheese and cool ranch" and they were like "what is that" and i said "you know, cool ranch... like ranch dressing" and they said "huh, i don't know" and i had no idea how to explain ranch... i mean what is it really? 
Black Flag down under.
Some pictures from a radio station wall.
Dave Benge. He was looking after most of our australian dates and making sure we had things like water and hummus... what a great guy. 
This photo reminds me of "Staring into the sun", a bad record from Uniform Choice, but still worth hearing if you are a fan, you will hate it though. If you are 13 and just getting into them you will try really hard to like it and even pretend and fool yourself. One day you will just give up and be like "this record sucks". Just like "Fire and Ice" by DYS, it just isn't good.

I saw 'Staring Into The Sun' era Uniform Choice. Also, remember what the Unity LP cover looked like? The worst cover of all time maybe?

no age said...

are you talking about the 7" unity cover or the LP one? the 7" is totally stupid skinhead style, smashing bricks that say racism, sexism etc.. haha, and that lp cover is them older in a room with a surfboard and some uniform choice records on the ground, and i think there is a broken flower pot? i bought that record, boy does it suck...

when i decided to be vegan i was eating a bag of nacho cheese doritos and i was on a plane coming back from wisconsin...i only ate half the bag, but it was the last not vegan thing i ate! better to have loved and lost then to never have had nacho cheese doritos...poor australians. i dream about those cool ranch flavor crystals sometimes

i went vegan when i was 16, but when i was 12 i tried to go vegetarian and it lasted all morning, and a day at school, i ate no meat! then at dinner my mom went through the El Pollo Loco drive through and i remember getting a chicken burrito and then being like "oh shit, i fucked up" ha, then i wouldn't try again for about three years..

Cool to see Jay and Billy (am I getting the name right?) representing Melbourne grind with yellow Collapsed Toilet Vietnam tee's. Sweet.

I love that you mention "Staring into the Sun" in that context because that's exactly what happened to me as a kid just getting into hardcore. The same thing happened with "Alpha Omega" by Cro-Mags and I didn't understand the appeal of them. Turns out I just heard the worst record first.
