    Still prefer this, for fans of the durries:

    He also voiced concern over other names given to New Zealand children, such as Violence, Midnight Chardonnay and Number 16 Bus Shelter.

    A set of twins was named Benson and Hedges, after the cigarette brand and some children had been named after six-cylinder Ford cars. There has ever been a case of a child being named after the entire All Blacks side.

    Splendour in the Grass is such a **** concept for a festival.

    It's hard enough to see decent bands in this country anyway given how far out of the way we are for tours, do we really need to have those who do come go and play in the middle of nowhere in Queensland? And seriously, ****ing camping? Who the **** goes camping? Costs about a billion dollars for a ticket too.

    There's actually a really good lineup this year with Elbow, Mars Volta, Modest Mouse, Mogwai, Pulp and a few other acts I'd like to see, but there's no way I'm going to that ****. Hopefully there's a lot of sideshows.

    Hard to argue with this sentiment. Camping is terrible. Truly an awful, awful thing to have to do.

    No. Dancing, drinking, drug taking and rooting is whats awesome at festivals.

    All of which can be done in a suite at a five star hotel, without smelling like a feral, Indy stereotype

    Oh right, I actually go to festivals mainly to be an indie stereotype (and the other things you mentioned), so that's where I'm going wrong.

    Keep taking yourself that seriously and you'll fit right in at most festivals.

    Went along when it was at Byron, stayed in an apartment, was a bloody ball. Now that it's moved, they only serve mid-strength alcohol as well at the festival, which makes it even worse, due to liquor licensing laws in QLD.

    Must admit, I've had some great times at Falls where I was camping, there's something liberating about living like a Pom and not showering for a few days.

    Seen a few kids called Jack Daniel and Tia Maria, felt Remi Martin was going too far though.


    Once spoke to a guy called Johnny Benjamin Goode, however the best was this guy, considering his surname and his job, the fact his middle name is Auld had me going....
    Remy Martin is classier than calling your child Jack Daniel though.

    The University bindery

    When it takes you three working days to bind a thesis, it might be handy if you could, you know, BE OPEN four working days before the thesis deadline. If that's not too much to ask.
