Wow godlike, that was about as intelligent as a donkeys wang! Whats the matter? You get dropped by your Mommy too much as a child? Spousal abuse is not cool! Sure shake her a bit, but a real man doesnt hit a woman. Maybe you need your teeth kicked in and be stripped of your manhood because you clearly need not be breeding! I have been beat up by lovers mentaly and physicaly for no reason at all other than they had a peyon mind like yours! Phil Rudd should fry if he hit a woman!

Its the reaction of someone who has been in alot abusive relationships. Go be in 5 and a half years of pain by every person you have been with and see how you react to that kind of joke. You would fly off the handle too.

Hahah I dig it. She got Thunderstruck lol. No offence Kalis, but any chance for making a bad pun should be taken hahah. Dirty deeds... :P

On another note, I was at a concert last night for an Aussie band I'd never heard of before - Airbourne. Holy mother of hell they're good! They sound like ACDC with a dash of Jet and a whole lotta attitude. If you're into ACDC, check out Airbourne on myspace, you won't be disappointed.

Now Playing: Airbourne - "Too Much, Too Young, Too Fast"

People, Kali went too damn long with out drink. Four days to be exact and was touchy. I still stand firm that godlike made a f***ed up comment and that he should be struck upside his head for it. I am havin a drink on me and mellowing out. Jack and rootbeer by the way. Psythe, that was pretty punny! I wont let this news ruin my AC/DC fun either because atleast Phil is not like Varg Vinkerc***!

hey, my humor isnt for everyone... If you dont like it....oh well... personally I dont believe in hittin women...it was meant for a laugh.... kinda like post 1 refers to an AC/DC song
Just for the record, I spent 6 years living with an abusive,bi-polar alcoholic... yeah she was a real fighter....I was hit, kicked or both on a weekly basis for the last few years..and then she was sent to a shrink, committed and medicated.... and all that time, I never laid a hand on her..not even to "shake her a bit".. as you say..!!

Airbourne kick a$$..!!

Glad to hear you're unwinding, Kalis, sink one for me, I'm still feeling average after that Airbourne concert last night hahah.

Sorry to hear it, Godlike, she sure sounds like a Whole Lotta Rosie - okay, okay, I'll stop :P hahah. I don't dig the wifebeaters either, unless we're talking singlets hahah. Really cool to hear other people are getting into Airbourne too, I've only just discovered them and I'm a huge fan! They're good, easy-goin' blokes, too. Bonus :P

Yeah, everytime she got drunk, it was like "Bedlam in Belgium"... there were some good times though....cause we all know..."Girls Got Rythym"...OK, thats enough now..!!

As for Airbourne...local radio is playing the hell out of that first release....most definatly some AC/DC influence there....perhaps its just that Aussie sound...??
I dont think Ive ever heard a bad band from down under...always liked Heaven...and Rose Tattoo..!!
Not so much a fan of Air Supply though... Little River Band were a little less annoying....
Oh yeah.....I hated Men At Work..!!!!!!

Hahaha! We are on the higway to Hell! Godlikes ex sounds simmiliar to my ex Gavin Lee. Two or three beers out of the twelve pack a night he would drink would start the extreame abuse mentally mostly, but he and I got into a fist fight because he was disrespecting my religion. Not a good thing to do when even after I warned him three times to stop and waqned him me and Jeger are touchy multiple times and still wanted me to drink it with him. I just recently threw the purse he got me in the fire. The a$$hole caused me family issues and out of jelousy he tried to break my vibrator. Not to memtion he would sneek off to the bar when I was asleep and bring home phone mumbers of women with lipstick prints on the napkin! Gavin Dean Lee f*** you! My life is tons better now! I must say that Aussie bands do have an original sound. I like it!

Yo Godlike do they not play bloody Rolf Harris in America then?

I'm loving the AC/DC puns so far lol!

And I agree, Aussie bands are awesome for the most part!

The funny thing about AC/DC and Australia is that the drummer is the only Aussie and their always credited as an Australian band.

Now playing: Budgie- Zoom Club

Alcohol is a strange thing.. add it to certain people and its like a Flick of the switch.. the ex was a Tequila fan...mixed with her personality...that was like adding a fuse to Tnt... a real Ballbreaker she was..!!
On a personal note to Kalis_wrath....damn, that takes a complete arsehole to wanna break a vibrater...thats just a Touch too much....Dont ever let anyone Walk all over you.... perhaps we can agree that its Goodbye and good riddance to bad luck..!!

Wiggles: nah, I'm about halfway between Sydney and Brisbane.

Godlike, how can you hate Men At Work?? That sh**'s classic, man! Cold Chisel are one of my favourite Aussie rock bands, I'd have to say. I've heard worse than Midnight Oil.

ACDC may not be the best-lookin' blokes around, but their style is the essence of 'manly'. And I don't mean no suburb in Sydney, either, hahah.

Now Playing: Chosen - "Blood Sun Black Sky"

In all of the live AC/DC stuff the lead singer always looks like sometings hurting him. It is sorta like Lemmy though. He stretches him self upward to get his un-mistakable sound.
