THANK YOU for all the support to everyone who donated and spread the word about my Million Paws Walk Cause!!
My beautiful boy JD and I made our target of $500!! You’re all still welcome to donate/share this post though to ensure all animals are getting the good lives they deserve!
We’re off to the Homebush Million Paws Walk soon, we can’t wait!
Find a black fringe Western-style jacket that is affordable!
Practiced my Purdie shuffle, some jazz comping and some gospel chops.
I need to get $275 to get to the Inaugural Sea Eagles Diabetes Ball!
But with saving for a car and a trip to Europe amongst a number of other things, I dunno how the hell I’m gonna get a ticket.
Hmmm I may just have to figure out how to work there haha…
Nearly every Bluth family member has his or her own version of the Chicken Dance on Arrested Development. (Jessica Walter told us she wanted Lucille’s to look tipsy.) But none is more iconic than Gob’s, the Patient Zero of Chicken Dances. It was first unleashed in season one’s “Staff Infection,” to taunt Buster into going on strike with the construction crew. “I remember reading that script and going, Uh, what is that?” Will Arnett told Vulture. “It just said, ‘Gob does his chicken dance.’” And then it was time to create a move that would rival Michael Jackson’s moonwalk in choreographic historical importance.
To decide what Gob’s bad impression of a chicken might be, Arnett consulted on set in 2003 with series executive producers Mitch Hurwitz and James Vallely. They all tried out different versions for each other. “Jimmy started doing a little bit, then Mitch got up and did some, and then I began trying things,” remembers Arnett. “Picture three grown men hopping around, working out what it would be … They were pitching this really taunting dance, but I wanted to give it this very sharp, almost roosterlike, chest-sticking-out mannerism, like a real macho bravado dance.” And how did clapping get introduced to the move? “Because I wanted it to be only sort of threatening.”
The dance, of course, is the opposite of threatening, and once Gob gets going, it escalates to a happy, stomping victory strut that Arnett says can’t be contained. “That’s exactly what happens! It starts with wanting to shame the other person, but I’ll tell you, once you start doing it, it’s so much fun to do that you’re immediately overtaken. The original motivation goes by the wayside as you enjoy the splendor of this freeing and intoxicating dance. It just fills you full of masculine energy.”
Been dealing with a lot of shit from people recently. Need to let those people go off, make mistakes and sort their shit out so they can stop dumping it on me!
I’ve got so many things to get organised…career-wise, health-wise, travel-wise, hobby-wise…So Much to Do, So Little Time.
However, I have hit a massive road block this week…
Managed to pull muscles in my lower back, neck and shoulder on the weekend. This has been devastating as I was planning to get a lot done this week (having a week off as I’m changing jobs) but have just lazed around unable to do anything.
I’m planning on hitting up the pool tomorrow, maybe hitting up the beach on Sunday or next week. I need to do something about this!! I hate being injured!!
Anyway, guess all I can do is stay positive!!
My new Mulder/X-Files poster Stevie got for me!!
I love it!!
Putting together my killer denim vest! This has been a long-term project…what with changing jobs and saving for a car draining all my $$!
The patches I have so far are:
- Yellow Submarine (not pictured)
- Drum kit
- Wolf protection
- X-Files poster
I am still looking for many other patches/studs/different things to put on it…pretty much making a scrapbook of me as a vest.
Hey guys! Please check out my page for the Million Paws Walk coming up on Sunday May 19!! I will be participating in the walk with my gorgeous beagle x jack russell JD (Jack Digger) and along with the walk we are raising $$ for the RSPCA!

My band Mirella’s Inferno had our EP Launch at Spectrum on Oxford St on friday night at the awesome event Eightby8ight!!
The event was a huge success (pre-sale tix sold out, and I’m pretty sure the tix sold out overall…) with a large portion of the crowd there to see us! We had a few technical issues, but I think we did pretty well for our first ‘real’ show!
I’ll post some links below so you can check us out and get behind original, home grown Aussie music!!
