36 year old child!!!!

That's what I am supposedly!!!!!

To here about my birthday yesterday, head over to Lisa's Blog. Most of would have gone there, then ended up here anyway!!

One thing that Lisa did not cover was that I finally received my Oasis "Dig Out Your Soul" Deluxe box set. Which then led me to Kylie's comment on my last post bagging my obsession with Oasis out. Now in my last post I talked about my love for 80's hair metal, but if you really know me, then you will know that my ultimate favourites are Oasis and The Beatles. Hawthorn is the only thing I obsess with more than these two. To prove it, I got all excited today as I was listening to the new album, that I just had to get almost everything out to look at.

Here is the result!!!

Not in picture are the clothing, posters, over 100 bootleg cds and 50 odd bootleg dvds!!!

I could get all my Beatle stuff out, but I would have to lie it all out in the backyard, that's the only place I could fit!!!!!

Anyway, Merry Christmas, I hope you all have a great day tomorrow!!

ps. Blur still and always have sucked!!!!!!!!!

It Is Time To Come Out Of The Closet!!!!!!!

I LOVE 80's Heavy Metal!!!!!!Align Center
It is awesome. I bet Lisa is cringing right about now. I have always loved it. When I was 3 years old I got AC/DC's "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" LP for my birthday, so I don't think I had a chance.

All through high school it was all about:

Motley Crue


Guns and Roses
and a heap of others.

Even though high school was 20 years ago, they all still appear on my Ipod. Guns and Roses "Appetite for Destruction" reminds me so much of summer '88.

For some reason this type of music used to get me in trouble with my parents, don't know why. I got in trouble for skipping classes at college and therefore had all my metal taken off of me for a month. Little did they know that my friends just taped copies for me to listen too while I waited!! :) I even got away with playing Aerosmith in my parents car during the ban!!!!!

Today I taken a more mature approach towards the metal. There are three books that I have read in the past few years that I have not been able to put down. They are "The Dirt" - Motley Crue, Slash - Slash and "The Heroin Diaries" - Nikki Sixx. I have read each at least twice each and plan to read them all again and again!!

Where is all this leading I hear you ask!! GUITAR HERO!! I am obsessed with it. I can finally "fulfill" my dreams as a rockin' guitarist!!!!! To play a game that is fun, that includes all your favourite bands and type of music is totally awsome. So when you think of me on Tuesday, my birthday, I will be rockin' it out on Guitar Hero 1 & 2. I can't wait.

Finally if you think this type of music is the devils music, don't stress, I love Stryper too. They are a christian heav metal band!! :) It's all good!!!

Go on admit it, ou love it too!!!!!
