This is one of those moments where everything just falls in to place. News reader mid-live stream delivering a story on Sydney’s ‘alcohol and violence hotspot’, when an upstanding member of Sydney’s public – possibly trying to find his way to a late night burrito bar – drunkenly stumbles over a curb and lands in the welcoming arms of the cushy pavement. Perfect.
The skeleton of Ned Kelly has finally been found, some 130 years after his hanging. Melbourne based forensic scientists have determined after a 20 month period of exhaustive DNA checks, that the remains are in fact those belonging to the loveable rogue. They were able to make a positive match with Kelly's sisters great grandson, who is a teacher.
Debate will now rage on I'm sure as to how the historical bones are laid to rest. Those carrying his lineage are pressing for closure and burial, while there are also fears that keeping them as a tourist attraction is both disrespectful to Kelly's family, and to those of his victims families.
They still haven't found his skull but, as you can see.
I don't know what you make of all of this, but maybe just buying a t-shirt would be easier.
And this is what Andrea was like the next morning. So much so that she didn't open the shop on Saturday.
This is how they do it in Japan.
There has been a lot said about planking lately, with a string of deaths, injuries, prime ministerial planking, and cross-generational planking... but the best thing I've seen is when Planking goes wrong... I'm just glad someone was there to capture the gold on camera.
The news would be far more boring without Karl Stefanovic, his mere presence is enough to ensure a simple story about a shark is instantly derailed.
Maybe it was the hype of Darryn Lockyer's last game, maybe it was that she just realised she wouldn't make the toilet, in all probability though, it was most likely just because she's a really rugged chick that didn't really care if people saw her going piss on the seat during the Origin decider. So yeah, this is the video of a lady that loved the Origin so much, she just dropped trou and went wees on her seat. I don't know what to think.
ABBA, Keeping Australia Beautiful. This is the first Australian celebrity endorsement. We're pretty stoked. I remember on the NZ site, the first celebrities we had wearing our t-shirts were local stars of the NZ hit show, Shortland Street (think a poor man's Home & Away or Neighbours), and then later on we had Diamond Dallas Page wearing a Keep NZ Beautiful t-shirt and even David Beckham's son wearing a Mr Vintage t-shirt. I think we originally gave it to Beckham's advisors for David to wear, but we were stoked to see his son in Women's Day wearing it. and Kim Kardashian was on the same page as well, so that was a bonus. of sorts.
But yeah, ABBA is way more of a coup. Look at Anni-Frid's hair; so silky. If you want to be like them, you should buy this.
Thanks for checking out the new website that we’ve made; we’re really glad it’s launched, and we hope you enjoy the things that are on the t-shirts we’ve made. Maybe even enough to buy some stuff. This first blog is not so much to tell you what we’re about – you can see that here – this is more about not having an empty blog page or one that says ‘coming soon’. I hate when a page has ‘coming soon’ on it; just don’t put the page there until there’s something to put there. This is us putting something here.
We’ll put things on this blog as much as we possibly can, most likely they’ll be funny videos and things like that, but it’s also a good way to share with you guys what we’re up to. The funny videos are great because it means I can legitimately sit at my computer for a large portion of the day watching videos with the justification of “finding stuff for the blog”.
But yeah, have a look around the site, and please tell us what you think; we reckon there are some pretty nostalgic Aussie moments, brands and icons in there – but if there are some we missed, let us know here. We just asked our mates that live in Aussie, and these are the ones we got a lot of requests for. And if you look at this site and you think “shit, bloody old Johnny would be able to design some awesome t-shirts for this site”, tell Johnny to get in contact with us, we’re really keen to work with Australian Designers – so spread the word!
Oh, and like us, follow us and all that internet stuff. If you’re in to it. If you’re not, just go on living your life.
