You see these two scallywags here? These two are the reason my bloglife, physical output and liver came to a screeching halt over the last couple of weeks.
Mikey and Fung. They came out at separate times. Mikey arrived in mid March and moved over to Torquay and Fung came out the day I also got back.
Both are amazing friends of mine from the town I was living in America, Encinitas and both know how to have a good time.
Mikey is out on a working holiday Visa, but Fung was just out on vacation. So it was my duty as the local and token Aussie to provide the location for the goods times to be had. We started off throwing ourselves right off the deep end. Arriving into Melbourne at 8am after a solid 15 and 18 hour flight respectively Fung and I where greeted with a beer and a hug from my Brother and Mikey. Next it was the hour trundle down the road where it was decided that Fung needed to see a local footy (and by footy I mean AFL) match. And wouldn't you know it, our timing was perfect. Today's game was the local derby. BH vs OG for the rights to the bridge that connects our towns.
After a quick shower and a couple of extra beers we where off. Where our deck chairs and ute trays where open for business...
Sub note: Please note that this IS NOT a rodeo. That at playing at a ground with no stadium one must make do with the best they can. This is just our way.
To be continued...

Holy moly... So i've been back in the motherland for just over a week and, dang, my body hurts. So bad.
The reason being is that i flew home with a buddy from the States and met up with another mate who is out here on holidays. The celebrations that have followed and the amount of bar stools fallen off is incomprehensible.
So i guess this post is saying that right now my mind is mush. Pure and utter mush. Im planning on a big post soon with a total update on just what the heck has been going on lately...
But in the meantime just before i bailed the US, there was this amazing and totally crass show on HBO called East Bound and Down. Funniest clip ever.

John Denver would be stoked.
Alright so, just before you start. No, im not giving up on my blog. Im determined to see this thing sprout into a wonderful thing. However, for the last week and a half i've been busily packing up my little studio in Leucadia for my return to the Land of Oz.
Yep im going home. After just under a year in the USA the time has come for me to start the journey home before a) I get a case of the Swine Flu or b) Immigration stat chasing my ass all over the country. Neither if which interest me.
So tomorrow is it. See ya Obama. Its been real. And Gov Arnie, dont worry. I'll be back.

This is one of my favorite songs from The White Buffalo's new album Hogtied Revisited....
Every single one of these songs give me a chill... He is amazing.
If you haven't got it already, shame on you! Go to iTunes now to redeem yourself... Actually, better yet, go to your local non-corporate record store and get it.
