An Interesting Take ... [Sep. 5th, 2006|06:10 am]

...


"It would be a surprise if the mirrors in Pietersen's house totalled anything less the entire stock at one of the larger branches of B & Q, and though it is not uncommon nowadays for the voice from the bedroom calling out: "I'll be down in a minute darling, I'm just putting in my ear-rings" to be a male one."

Yes the day is finally here. Now you, our simple fan, can print out and own  the autograph of the lead singer of Super Mega Death, Captain "Vikki" Transvestite.

Unfortunately it is too Super a lot Mega and very Deathy for anyone other than our die hard fans.

So it's under the cut if anyone REALLY wants to see it: (p.s. i challenge anyone to try and forge this signature!)

Super Mega Death's Jammin Session [Jul. 28th, 2006|08:51 pm]

Sorry this is a little belated but I have only just awoken after a night's heavy moshing at a Super Mega Death Gig held on a random driveway. Prior to this Super Mega Death had a jammin session in which the lyrics for 'Asif' was officially documented for all to enjoy. So were the less celebrated lyrics of 'Leprosy'. A new song called 'Put things in your head' was written and Vikki treated us all to her variation of the song 'Sex on the Beach'. Here for your appreciation (or complaints in the case of 'Leprosy') are the lyrics:

Super Mega Death now have a brand new Official Sport. It is known as Bush Jumping and involves running across empty streets to jump over bushes by the side of the road. Sophie was reluctant to play as she didn't have the right shoes on but Vikki and Reece soon beat her down (coincidentally with a bush).














Super Mega Death also now only eat bananas in the shape of penguins.

At Jilly's (musicorcricket) request, here's the best picture from Ricky Ponting's Ashes Diary 2005. :)

It's really bad quality because I photographed it and the bastard camera refused to focus, but I think you get the jist of Ricky's blatant man-boob touching. What makes me laugh is Michael's gentle touch of Ricky's elbow (mm carpety) and, you can't see it, but the gentle look on his face while he's doing it. Ricky just wants to cop a feel.

Doesn't help that the thing is captioned with, 'I congratulate Michael Vaughan at the end of the pulsating second Test.'

Hm...

Edit: Oh Noble! I forgot my favourite quote!

"While some players might flick through GQ or FHM, Symonds will be reading a magazine about his major passion in life: hunting fetal pigs. That physical outdoor life has given him a high level of fitness; that plus his natural agility means I would not fancy being a pig if he was pursuing me..."

Oh that made me laugh out loud, and I rarely laugh out loud... lol. :P

I was recently given Ricky Ponting's Ashes Diary 2005 book for my birthday, managed to read it in two weeks or so -- it's not that taxing reading, Ricky, sorry... but that picture of you feeling Michael Vaughan up made me laugh on many occasions.

I thought I'd post up the best quotes here (best being funny/awww because if they're neither of those they're boring stats), but unfortunately I didn't mark the pages where they were and it's about 350 pages long. Here's my best effort:

[My Hare Krishnas-in-a-can are listening to: |The sound of Lauren ironing]

Worcestershire's Vikram Solanki has been drafted into England's one-day squad as cover for Kevin Pietersen and Paul Collingwood, both of whom have injury concerns.

Solanki will join the England squad at Old Trafford ahead of Wednesday's ODI while Pietersen (left knee) and Collingwood (left thigh) continue to be assessed in the lead up to the final two matches of the NatWest Series.


Who, from the original Ashes 12, is left to get injuried? (Haha a bee just flew into the window) Andrew Strauss and Ian Bell, by my reckoning, seeing as Geraint had a thigh strain that took him out of an eventually washed-out ODI in India.

Dear oh dear. Wasn't like we'd be deadly even if everyone was fit...

Tell me I'm not the only one who's a distinct feeling that we're going to lose the rest of these ODIs? Or at least go about a win with a very English sense of melancholic defeat.

England's Injuries

Ashley Giles is now flying out to America to consult with specialists to see what they make of his struggle back to health, while bezzie mate Michael Vaughan has suffered yet another setback and will be out of cricket for either 10 weeks or 9 months. It all depends on whether he needs surgery to make a minor tweak to his knee, or a proper, full-blown rehabilitation job.

Our boys. :(

Andrew Flintoff is in no serious trouble, but won't be playing cricket until the first Test against Pakistan in July. Kevin Pietersen has been ruled as fine, there's no breakage in his knee. As for his amateur dramatics, well, they need serious work.

What The Aussies Have Been Up To

Damien Martyn has got married to Anneka McNamara (?), a woman 12 years his junior, while Brett Lee married his partner in the midst of a bit more media interest. Both were 'private affairs', as all celebrity weddings always are.

Ricky Ponting did a signing session at a Safeway supermarket. Hahahahahahaha.

England's injury list has been swelled to include James Anderson with a stress fracture in his back that will have him out for two months, and Simon Jones again had a twinge in his knee after having to limp off from his last county match. The extent of Simon's injury isn't known at the moment, but he's thought to be unable to make it for the first Test on the 11th of May.

Now I am *really* praying that Sri Lanka bowl on the first day at Lord's. Not only am I dying to see Murali play (and see our beloved Tresco and Andrew), I don't want to have to watch Sajid Mahmood play! Liam Plunkett is also expected to be included, seeing as Jimmy was supposed to be in for Steve Harmison.

Bless Jimmy, this could have been a real chance for him to show some consistency. :( Let's not even mention Simon, that's just too sad. That knee injury was just from working in the nets the first week back from an ankle injury.

Oh Noble don't make me copy up all the county scores tonight... I've been at a party! I know I should have kept up-to-date as the scores came in, I know!

Fine, fine. Self-discipline.

Alright, to keep you going (like any of you are keeping up with the counties anyway!), look over this, spend some time gouging out your eyes, subsequently be rushed to hospital by a caring family member only to transferred into a mental health unit for an extended stay... and then come back and look at the county scores, which I should have just finished by then.

For ajat, the pairing seems to excite her somewhat. ;)

*alert*

The two newest members of Super Mega Death are rebelling! Sole creative mastermind of Super Mega Death, Vikki Bond, could be heard screeching, 'SOPHIE, HELP! THEY'RE TRYING TO KICK ME OUT OF SUPER MEGA DEATH!' at approximately 17:08. The location of the other two members was unknown, so, to calm herself, Vikki started singing Tingalayo, lala la la la la.

Obviously, now the other two dedicated members are aware, they will take the appropriate disciplinary action and will confiscate Baker and Lisa's scalpels. Perhaps a few days of no self-harming will teach them a lesson.

*arms selves with sporks and sporfles*

Right, let's go.

* Glamorgan are being thoroughly thrashed -- underlined three times -- by Essex; more specifically by Ravi Bopara and Andy Flower. Essex lost two cheap wickets in the championship match at Sophia Gardens, and then in comes young Ravi and experienced Andy and what do they do? Crank out 339 runs between them to leave Essex 400-3 at the close of the day, of all things. Why not, eh? Ravi Bopara finally went on a career-best 159, and Andy Flower is not out on 154.

Draw, anyone?


* Brian Lara has been appointed captain of the West Indies for, yes, the third time. He says he feels fully supported by the board and the players, past and present. Let's see how long it lasts, the track record for him or his fellow captains isn't the shiniest.


* Lazing around over, New Zealand and South Africa are back playing tomorrow -- well, later on today. Those ruled out of the New Zealand side are Shane Bond (injury) and Hamish Marhsall (injury), with Michael Papps officially in for Marshall.

Herschelle Gibbs has been kicked off of the South African side and in his place will be Hashim Amla, who will be hoping to stake a claim on a more regular place. You might recognise him, he was the one who came on fielding at the last Test with the big ol' beard.


* Australia have... want to guess?... won the second one-day international against Bangladesh, taking them 2-0 up and winning them the series. It would be churlish to jump and shout about it like it was a huge achievement, though I think they're all too exhaused to do so.

For his century that saved a stumbled Australian innings, Andrew Symonds recieved the man-of-the-match award. The pictures have come through and it is official: he is now a scary, scary tramp man.

Or maybe a man just too tired to shave?Collapse )

As promised, a round-up of the county games so far. Hopefully this will be regular on Sundays (that may be revised). It took so long because we'd not been making records from day one, and it involved catching up on a good few days' finished matches.
