Full story time!!

Ok, so on the Thursday I went down to the airport with my friend Helen, and we knew which flight they were coming in on thanks to a friend of mine in Brisbane. So we waited (the waiting nearly killed us!) And then all of the sudden there they were, coming out of arrivals!!! Just Matt and Dom though.

They both came straight over to us (my Brisbane friend had told them to look out for us!) They were REALLY sweet guys, we chatted for a bit and then we asked for some photos. I handed my camera to Matt to take a photo of me and Dom, but oh no! Matt dropped my camera, right on the lens!!

He was like "oh, shite!" and he got out his wallet, and he pulls out some notes and he's like "oh shit, wrong currency, we're not in Aus anymore!" And then their manager-type guy was like "Ok, we're gonna get you a new camera!" I though he was joking, but then he gave me his phone number and email address!!! We took a photo then with my friend's camera phone and the management dude told us to phone him tomorrow (concert day).
Here's the pic from Thursday:



So fast forward to the Friday (concert day!!)
I got there at 9.00am and was first in line!!! I txt the management dude about the camera and he says he'll call when he has one!! I told him I was waiting in line. Then, at about 4.00pm, I hear this London accent behind me and here's the guy, with a brand new camera!!! Everyone was totally stunned! It's a really nice camera too, way better than my old one!!

The concert was TOTALLY amazing, words cannot describe!!! Especially since I was front row in the middle!!

So on the Saturday, I got home and was like "fuck it, I'm going to the airport" (as they were flying to Christchurch that day). So at this point Gluey comes in to help and she gives me a lift to the domestic terminal!! Except there was a problem: there were two check in points, Air NZ and Qantas. Ah. And there are two flight at 1.00, going from both terminals. So Gluey waited at Qantas and I waited at Air NZ. About 2 minutes later I got this phone call from Gluey, just like "RUN. NOW!"

I have NEVER run so fast in my WHOLE, ENTIRE LIFE!!!!! But I made it, and there they were! (All 3 this time!!) They recognised me and also asked after my friend from Thursday!! It was such a buzz! Matt asked if I had my camera and I was like "Yeah, don't break it this time though!"

So I had photos with all of them and they were just SO nice, really relaxed and stuff!! It was SUCH an awesome experience and I still can't believe it, much like meeting U2 last year!!

Here's my pics with Muse:







YAY

I found this documentary on Muse's videos on YouTube the other day, from Absolution era I think. It's quite entertaining, especially when they comment on their early dodgy videos,

Has there been any official word on whether or not that new DVD is going to be released in the US? Or is it time to take a ride to import city?
