Thanks guys....

...for taking the time to bother reading this, and for your comments. I guess Lee hasn't quite got round to setting his blog up. I am about trying to make time to do things rather than looking or trying to find time. I also think its cool when I see bands that I enjoy, put a little effort into communicating with the people that give them the chance to be in a band in the first place, and in all fairness, its no skin off my nose to type a few lines everynow and again right? I'd love to know what James Hetfield is up to these days and where his head is at, for instance. Not that I consider myself on a par with James Hetfield..Hell No...but the comments you guys wrote all pretty much say how cool you think it is that I'm writing, so Ima keep on writing.
And on that note, I've run outta things to say.....haha. No not really, for anyone who knows me, I can talk the ass off of a donkey. Talking of ass...I stuck to my words in my last blog...and did actually get my ass handed to me in the water today. Mikey shit out of surfing today (kidding bro!) so I went it alone. It was grey and a little cold, and to start I had a ball, but it got bigger and I got shitter and took a handful of hammering before sulking back to shore and to my bed. Man, for as much as I love doing it...I suck. guess its true about teaching old dogs new tricks. Mike on the other hand is c c c crazy. For what he lacks in ability, he makes up for with balls. The dudes a deathwish surfer...and regularly has runnings with other surfers in the water. The number of times I have seen mikey smash into some guy, or gal, or take out an entire family with his board... he's just plain mental. I love that about him. The rest of the guys in the band get pissy when mike and I pipe on about surfing. Labelling us as "surfer bum chums" and what not. Fuck 'em. Jealous they are. Haha.
We, pack up the studio in a few days, our work in San Diego is done my friends. We've done some great songs, and for the first time, had fun doing them. They'll probably change alot between now and putting them down on record, but if we made a record of what we have done at this point, I would be stoked. It feels and sounds way more like how we want to be seen and heard. Lets hope we manage to keep that attitude right through the process. Anyhooooo...I got shit to do, and people to see so loves ya and leaves ya. Be good to each other. Look after yourselves, its a dangerous world out there. (i don't quite know where I'm going with this...always found it hard to put the phone down and say bye.)...and....oh..fuck it.

*revised extention - No no no, dont get me wrong, its not that mike is better than me, we are both pretty shit (shit is a relative term), Its just he's crazier than I. Which at times works to his advantage and other times...boy oh boy...its painful to watch the trouble he puts himself into...haha. Plus when I said "what he lacks in ability..he was hurt that I was suggesting he didnt have any. He can surf. In fact for the length of time we been at it, we are RAD! I meant it as a compliment to the size of his balls. ha.
I can't believe I am actually writing this shit out..haha. Can you tell I've had a few beers!! Off out now, Mikes DJing down at the Beauty Bar in San Diego...come along if you can, we'll all be there tearing up the dance floor. OUT.


Andie said...

Well...after a fairly crappy and uneventful day, reading about your shenanigans has managed to raise a smile out of me! Thank you xx

P.S....great to read things are going well with the new toons xx

Georgie said...

YAY another blog =) \o/

Hahaaha, it's only natural that your gonna crash and burn out in that water as your just a beginner. But keep at it, and you'll be as good as Mike one day -- (maybe even better!) *nudge wink* hehe ;)

It definitely sounds like the others are jealous of u 2! I know I am! Just keep on at them bout what their missing out on etc (not that I know having never surfed.. but u get what i mean!) lol

So you guys are heading back home soon? Cool cool, gonna get urselves ready for them big gigs in April and May eh?

Unfortunately I wont be at any of them... BUT I shall be seeing you @ Reading Fest in Aug, looking well forward to THAT! FUCK YEA!!! ^__^

Peace outtttttttt Jame!

**hugs for all**

Chelle-Bell said...

I was wondering where Lee's blog was...
You may not be on par with James Hetfield but I do enjoy reading what you write and your thoughts on things.
Hope you didn't get hurt while surfing.Your like my favourite member of the band.
Great to hear the new album is coming along and I can't wait for it to be done.
You sure can talk about random shit can't you?You would probably win a trophy for Wales(I was so tempted to write Scotland there lol).
I'm gonna go now since I've prattled on.I'll be seeing you and the guys in Glasgow in two weeks!
See yah! <3

Ms. Hill said...

It means alot to so many of us for someone we admire so much to take the time to share their thoughts/feelings with us. Never under estimate yourself, I'm sure to some you are on par with Mr. Hetfield.

kim said...

Ruffles said...

Never surfed in my life, but am now dreaming about it....or is it just the thought of you in that tight little outfit....ha ha....!!!!Mmmmmmmmmm....!!!

Ruffles said...

Fucking unbelieveable....thats what you are....!!! After a hard day...doing fuck all...(On school hols ya see..)I find myself drawn, (yet again...!!) to the mighty blogs of Jamie Oliver....and what a mighty man he is....Mmmmmm...ha ha..!!! I left myspace a few months ago, and have been seduced back, by the writings of a Prophet...oh fuck me...think Im on one...!!!! (open another bottle Trace)....Im still in awe, (only just the right side of 35...doesn't take much does it..!!) over the fact that you make time to write to the fans, telling us all about your daily going's on. I knew you were a nice bloke, cause you stopped for my mate and me outside the Manchester Apollo once....We were expecting you to say..."Haven't got the time boy'o"...(For some reason, that came out of my mouth sounding very much like a Geordie...mind you the only thing I can say that sounds remotely Welsh is.."My grannie was a Jones"...but she wasn't so....Ahhh well.....Bollocks...) but instead in true gentlemanly style, you gave us time for a piccy.... I think it really is time to open another bottle....ha ha..!!

Take it easy mucker...Keep writing to us and we'll keep' a reading...and no doubt we'll keep getting pissed and writing rambling comments...WOOHOO...!!..XXX

Hi Jamie,

Dave from london here. Nice blog you've got going, see you in one week time at Wembley Arena! Anyway, I've got my own youtube series now running, based around a challenge. I am only 17 and I was challenged to see if I can create an online business and ebook within 4 weeks. many people wont think I will because of my age, but im going to prove them wrong and show my struggle through videos and a blog.

It would be great if you could find the time to check them out.


PanchoWatkins! said...

Jamie! You rulez men
your DJ work is great!! I mean, I really like the interludes in the first album of your band!! But aww.. sorry I don't speak english natively, so I can't read clearly the post you wrote, but I can get an idea :)

Bore da, sud u chi? Hope you are well. I'mn proud to say,I myself am Welsh (albietfrom the north, don't hold that against me-us taffy twats gotta stick together right??!!)

Well Ive been a proper blonde bird today, tried to send this message 11 times now, so fingers crossed! My apologise if I've sent the same message a hundred times, acually no, fuck it you should be thanking me being bothered to write the damn thing over and over again;)

Saw you boyos at Wembley arena n you were fuckin' awesome, was right at the front:)

Jamie thanks for the blogs it doesn't matter that you're rambling on-you may have noticed I'm a bit of a waffler myself! It just means a lot to us that you can find the time to write to us mere mortals, n not got too big for ya boots.

It might sound a cliche' but your tunes have meant so much to me, got me through some tough times and given me the strenght to carry on, I know you probabley thinkin what a load of shit, but its true (mentally abusive marriage, to name but a few) Anyways I'm ok now n back to my old self. Living life to the full n getting mashed as much as poss.

Loved the san diego homevid lads much better than scripted stuff, felt more real(duh it was real, I knoe,Iknow) like we was there with ya. Don't grow up, much more fun acting the goat innit? At 31 I'm probabley your oldest fan:( bubt refuse to become an adult!

Anyhoo, better go as am meant to be working;s Keep it real n don't forget ya roots. Luv ya loads. Cymru am beth!!!xxx
