Today is the first time I cried over a celebrity. Robin Williams bought so much joy to my life growing up.  They’re saying it’s suicide.  While there is no official statement on that, just the possibility hits my heart hard, it’s something very close to me. 

I remember watching an interview he did 10 years ago on one of the late-shows (it was either Conan or Leno, I can’t remember which) and I remember thinking I could see pain in his eyes.  Followed by radiant joy whenever he’d get laughs.   He reminded me of myself… Talking continuously, making stupid jokes (except him being good at it) to cover-up the fact he was dying on the inside, or to search for acceptance from the people around him. 

I remember feeling shaken when thinking this and thinking to myself “nah, you’re just trying to project what you’re feeling onto an idol to relate”.  I don’t know why that memory sticks with me now so much.  I don’t know why I’m mentioning it now. But I can’t get that pained look from his eyes out of my head.  I don’t remember many details from that interview, but the expression in his eyes switching between torture, wanting and 100% joy stuck with me.

All I know is that the world is worse off than it was 24 hours ago and I want to lay in a ball and sleep for the next year.

So my band Anti-Thesis released this last night.  Check it out!  The songs were all recorded live during our “Breaking in the New Guy” tour late last year.  We had so much fun on this tour, it was our first with the new bassist Lachlan.  

We tore around South East Queensland and Northern New South Wales playing to every awesome cunt we could.  We decided to release this because we’ve had delay after delay at getting our 2nd EP done.  *Hopefully* it should be kicking around in October.

"We can’t support helping our own people, but we’re happy to supply funding for straight up genocide elsewhere. We’ll let our woman and children starve while paying for the extermination of another people’s woman and children.” - The USA Government 2014
Our (Australian) government also backs up the US’s stance on this fucking thing.  All the more reason we need to remove our current government and separate all ties we have with that evil empire.picture source HERE

This isn’t a good thing. The science also stacks up. If the findings these guys have from their studies are spot on (and there hasn’t been any problems with their equipment making the readings), then we are literally about to live an extinction event.

Time to start buying fireproof suits & oxygen tanks, you’re gonna need them.

This guy should be treated as a hero, not as a criminal.  Fuck our government is so illogical and idiotic.  He’s providing medical relief to people who the establishment refuses to help.  

And yes, I have seen first hand how well hash oil works on somebody with epilepsy.  It is literally life changing.  By denying them this stuff when there is ZERO OTHER ALTERNATIVE WHICH WORKS, the government should be fucking charged and locked away. 

Fuck this country.

The Molotov - Live @ EarCandy #5

The Molotov definitely bought the most visual show to EarCandy #5 this year.  Their mix of metal, industrial and rock is pretty unique among Australian bands.  With or without the visuals, they always put on an amazing show. 

I ended up at Daniel’s (the keyboarder/guitarist) house after the after party, boozing up with Shane, Jayde and Dan.  As usual, it was mad fun.  My brain and liver are both still angry at me though.

Planet Fiction - Live @ EarCandy #5

Planet Fiction played their first show back in a while at EarCandy #5.  They headlined the Cinema Room stage and put on an amazing as fuck show. 

Make sure you check out their facebook page to hear about when they play next!
