19 mar 2007, 07:02Sat 17 Mar – Something With Numbers, Smithtown Riot
This was fantastic.
A friend and I travelled down to Wyong from Newy for the gig, and we weren't disappointed. We arrived at about 7.30-8pm when a local band was playing. I didn't bother to check the playing times so i don't know who the local bands were. >_>
Smithtown Riot were pretty much great. First time i heard any of their stuff and I liked it. At the end of the night me and Nath went and bought their ep and we met the famous Ross, who we did a deal with that involved him signing the ep if we bought it. Now let us all hope they get famous and he doesn't sign anything ever again and we make millions. huzzzah
Something With Numbers were gold as expected. They played all the greats. Although despite our efforts (and constant yelling out) they didn't play Barnicles And Stripes :( :(:((:((:::(
But o wels i got videos:
Look here for the videos
Seeing them again 06/07/07 at Newcastle Leagues Club. :)

3 aug 2006, 05:51Here's the first lines of 20 songs I used for a mixed cd just now. Tell me the artist and the name of the song. Okay, go.
You only hold me up like this.
Random lost souls have asked me "what's the future of rock' n' roll?"
6 bottles went down the drain. One hour's a waste of time.
Ooh, baby, don't you know I suffer?
Paper bags and plastic hearts.
When your out with your friends in your new Mercedes Benz.
Well, I can't wait to tell you all about her, all about my new girl.
Downtown where we walk the streets so beautiful and fly.
So here I am, doing everything I can.
You think its strange, that there's a way.
A devil in a midnight mass, he prayed behind stained glass.
When they tightly strap me in, give me lethal injection.
Well my friend is even this a trend?
I don't need anyone. Don't need no mom and dad.
15. We went out last night. Didn't go as planned.
It's a heart break, that you can't fix up.
Midwest love affair I bend when I am bored.
18. We have to take our clothes off. We have to party all night.
Can we make this last forever, with every word we're growing distant.
Measure me in metered lines, in one decisive stare.

Unique Artists: 118 (up 83)
Total Tracks: 691 (up 446)
Total Plays: 886 (up 606)
1. The Ataris (63 plays, NEW entry)
This is a shock. Surely i didn't listen to them this much. This must be a record for The Ataris in one week i think. They're gunna be in my overall top 10 for a little while longer.
2. blink-182 (51 plays, LW #1)
More listens then last week but they've lost a spot. They deserve a break from the top spot >_>
3. Something Corporate (46 plays, LW #15)
Had Leaving Through The Window on in the car during the week, so I listened to them on my computer as well. That's how i roll.
4. Brand New (45 plays, NEW entry)
I listened to crap all music last week because Brandnew are a new entrant this week. I didn't even play them once which is strange. ps. get new album out now bitches :)
5. Amber Pacific (44 plays, NEW entry)
I knew they were great the first time i heard them. It was a cover of Video Killed The Radio Star on punk goes 80s a long while ago. I managed to build up my library of their songs. They are slowing climbing the charts fo sure.
6. Finch (39 plays, NEW entry)
Pretty high for them for one week. This was mostly Letters To You (Acoustic) and the What It Is To Burn album. <444441
7. Angels & Airwaves (32 plays, LW #21)
Here they come top 15. A Little's Enough is amazing. <3
8. NOFX (29 plays, NEW entry)
I have lots of their albums. This week i remember playing Never Trust A Hippy EP and Wolves In Wolves' Clothing. 29 plays is lots for them too.
9. Taking Back Sunday (28 plays, NEW entry)
Suprising a new entry for this week as well. Last week has nothing on this week. Not much to say here really besides that this is about where i'd expect them most weeks.
e10. The Postal Service (25 plays, LW #21)
New album soon i heard somewhere, got me excited and back into listening.
e10. Gyroscope (25 plays, LW #6)
Booyah top 10 for two weeks in a row. Keep it up boys. excellent.
Top 5 Albums:
1. Leaving Through the Window (27)
2. We Don't Need to Whisper (25)
3. Blue Skies, Broken Hearts... Next 12 Exits (22)
4. Dead Ends and Girlfriends (19)
5. The Possibility And The Promise (18)
I don't know how they work out top albums. I'm guessing the number must be the amount of songs you played from that particular album, not how many times you played the album through in its entirety.
Top songs haven't updated for me this week yet but i'm betting the top spot would be No It Isn't. It's the only song i have by them and i've listened to them 10 times this week, so there you go.

1. blink-182 (46 plays)
Superband. They are top artist overall so where else would they be during the week? Plus they won the what-u-want world cup on channel v yesty.
2. Punchline (28 plays)
They deserve this spot. I like them more and more every week. If anyone has any other albums besides Action and 37 Everywhere hit me up.
3. Hawthorne Heights (27 plays)
Strange. Didn't think i'd listened to them much this week. This just proves me wrong i guess. This would have been mostly the new album.
4. Fall Out Boy (23 plays)
Another one i didn't know i had listened to much during the week. Come to australia, you fags.
5. The Academy Is... (21 plays)
I don't know how big these guys are in America, but it seems they get overshadowed by Falloutboy and Panic atthedisco. They are good and stuff.
6. Gyroscope (17 plays)
Super awesome. They're up there on my fav band list. Only 15 more listeners and they'll have 2000 on here. huzzah.
7. Hellogoodbye (14 plays)
I got their dvd a little while ago. The music videos are super.
8. (Equal) INXS (13 plays)
This would be old INXS. I haven't listened to the new J.D. Fortune style INXS yet. Not sure if i want to.
8. (Equal) And Then I Turned Seven (13 plays)
They have some really good songs. yup.
10. (Equal) AFI (12 plays)

Another random play. I like them though. Maybe they'll grow on me.

2. ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead. (22 plays)
Awesome band. They're generally up there somewhere. The end.
3. "Weird Al" Yankovic. (21 plays)
Haha. Greatest guy. He released a parody of You're Beautiful by James Blunt, called "You're Pitiful" on his website early on in the week. It got me back into listening to a bit of Weird Al.
4. Angels & Airwaves. (17 plays)
I think these plays are all bootlegs of their concert at the Electric Ballroom. Mmm.. liveness.
5. MC Lars. (14 plays)
My brother told me to get the new album for him, so I thought i'd have a listen myself. It's different to what i normally listen to. but it's good i suppose.

I have lots of songs by them, so i usually listen to a few here and there. good band.
6. (Equal) Fall Out Boy. (12 plays)

1. AFI (40 plays)
The new album leaked so i've been listening to that. Don't know what to think of it at the moment. I'm sure it'll grow on me. Listened to their older stuff aswell which contributed to the high count.
Favourite song at the moment: Kill Caustic
2. The Offspring (36 plays)
Didn't expect them this high in one week. Although, I have lots of their stuff and I like to listen to albums in full most of the time.
Favourite song at the moment: Most stuff from Americana.
3. Taking Back Sunday (32 plays)
High play count = Louder Now and old 2001/2002 demos. Sleep is a great song, I don't know why it wasn't on the new album, rather than just being a b-side. I like it more then most on there.
Favourite song at the moment: Sleep
4. The Ataris (27 plays)
Most weeks they'll be up there. Lots of stuff = lots of plays.
Favourite song at the moment: San Dimas High School Football Rules
5. Fastball (26 plays)
Pop-rock at its best. They're a ball. And they're fast. I don't know what it is, but i've liked them for a while.
Favourite song at the moment: Iuno.. probably Fire Escape.
6. The Weakerthans (24 plays)
If you're not listening to this band you're either stupid or haven't heard of them. Not really.. but they're very good and you should listen. A new album would be awesome, hopefully soon.
Favourite song at the moment: So manyyy. One Great City!? Yeah.
7. At the Drive-In (17 plays)
Always manage to listen to the stuff I have by them. Need to get some more. They are super.
Favourite song at the moment: Hulahoop Wounds
7. Kisschasy (17 plays)
Snuck up to grab a spot this week. Must have just been in the mood.
Favourite song at the moment: Face Without a Name
9. Hellogoodbye (15 plays)

Favourite song at the moment: Back to Shimmy Shimmy Quarter Turn for this week, according to my charts.
10. Hawthorne Heights (12 plays)
Just beat Jimmy Eat World by 1 play to grab 10th spot. Got here randomly.

Put your media player on random and select a lyric from each of the first 25 songs that come up, then allow everyone to guess the song and cross a song off your list once it has been guessed correctly. (Using a search engine is CHEATING!)
1. I know, you might roll your eyes at this, but I'm so glad that you exist. 2. I'm sorry I have to say it but you look like you're sad. 3. There were places we would go at midnight. 4. You see the world in black and white, no colour or light. 5. Now i'm stealing her body and taking it home. 6. Holding your head up is hard when you just want, to stay on the ground. 7. Where were they going without ever knowing the way? 8. This is how to escape the horizon, curled up and frozen still. 9. You know that it meant everything to me. 10. I won't hold back from you this time. 11. There is no doubt you throw your inbox out. 12. Cause the truth about the world is that crime does pay. 13. ...and never will I be able to tell you, I love you, again. 14. A star up in the sky, a poem to the dead. Let this mistake, bring a vivid crystal to her eyes. 15. We are alive, and just like the sun will kill the night. 16. Oh Mr. Magazine, I never wrote one single thing for you. 17. The radio plays a love song. I smash my fist right through the dial. 18. Sat outside my front window... this story's going somewhere. 19. It's different now that I'm poor and aging, I'll never see this place again. 20. And I wanna carry your books to every class, And I wanna fuck you up the ass. 21. Every night I see you standing on the corner, Shaking that thang like you're playing pop warner. 22. Welcome to a new kind of tension. All across the alienation. 23. I took your stuff and put it in the basement, When I found out what the smile on your face meant. 24. Go ahead, work, waste your life away. Fuck that world, go fuck that right away. 25. I'm waiting to give you whatever the world may bring.
