You sure they weren't drunk in this show? Or Bono at least...

Just into Trevor now (which always makes me giggle cos that's my brother's name) ... no idea what all that at the start was... and now we're getting bird noises, a la Wire and Exit... and assorted other sound effects.


That weirdo noise clearly has a long heritage. I can do it, too.

Didn't Bono say he'd only performed while drunk once?
I so don't buy that.

Ahh, no wonder I couldn't get that VHS tape to work last night...
I was trying to rewind an already rewound tape.

I am definitely drunk now, I think. I had some rugby comments that I ranted at the wine glass as I poured my eighth glass but I cannot quite remember it now. Sweet game from the All Blacks; we outplayed the Wallabies on every level and showed why we're the best country in the world at the best sport in the world. Frankly, I am not entirely sure why Australia bothered, as nothing they could do could answer our quality of play. We really learnt a lot from last week's errors. Great work at the lineouts and the breakdown especially.

I know you don't care, Ali, nor do you, Serena, but rugby is life, and maybe Steph will bother to catch up on this or something. Because she's South African and a rugby fan and therefore cool.

To summarise: Australia, you are a flash in the pan. Go home before we embarrass you further and taunt you a second time!

We need to find a guitarist, though. Because I fear I'm too shit even for Phail.

I think he referred to one specific time when all of them decided to deliberately get smashed before a show, just to see what it was like... but I'm sure one or more of them have performed while under the influence more often than that.

Yeah, they did a show under the influence in the pre-Boy days and it failed abysmally. Though it might have been under the influence of drugs rather than alcohol; I can't remember. I certainly imagine Adam has played under the influence of both drugs and alcohol since then!

I thought we established that there's no such thing as too crap for Phail... just too good for Phail.
