What about the Hussey decline? Can he get over like 12 lately?
Otago? Where the F did they come from?

Vincent Eardley-Wilmot managed to avoid authorities in New Zealand and Canada for four years by using false names. His run ended on Friday when Justice Robert Dobson, in the High Court at Wellington, jailed him for six years and six months after he admitted importing ecstasy and lsd and conspiracy to import methamphetamine.
What was his alias? Megatron. Leader or the Decepticons. Destroyer of worlds. A mad bugger. How dumb to you have to be to go around hiding from the cops with the name Megatron? You'd stand out like a pimple on a Dinobot's ass wouldn't ya? We'll you'd think so but the bugger must have done something right for four years.
Maybe he shortened his name to Megs or something.
I heard his girl friend Arcee was also arrest on other drugs charges
I called Owen this morning after all the media coverage and he confirmed that it was also him who paid for Shane Bond to defect to the Indian 20 / 20 league, paid for the Spice Girls to reform (Sporty was his favourite) and arranged for the Loch Ness Monster to retire to Bemuda.
Incidentally, I met Glenn at a bar in Monaco when I filmed the new James Bond movie. He was having a hard time picking up the ladies. I gave him a few pointers like how to stand and be cool, some tricks with a lighter, how to drink your whiskey proper and he was away.
The British bands - who were fierce pop rivals in the 90s - are huge fans of the savoury snack and Blur bassist Alex James wants them to team up to create their own brand.
James, who is now a dairy farmer and cheese maker, has invited his band's lead singer Damon Albarn and Oasis stars Noel and Liam Gallagher to his Cotswolds cheese factory so they can start working on a special cheese for next month's BRIT Awards.
A source said: "Damon and Alex have always been enthusiastic about cheese - it was the glue that held Blur together for so long.
"But it wasn't until recently that Alex discovered Liam and Noel shared their obsession. So he had the masterplan of creating something constructive through the medium of cheese, which would mark their maturity."
James believes the prestigious music event, to be held at London's Earl's Court, would be the perfect place to showcase the cheese and is hoping it will be offered as a dessert alternative during the dinner.
James is thoroughly enjoying his life as a farmer, even though it is a far cry from his days as a glamorous pop star.
He said: "From hard drugs to soft cheese! That's me. From boozy, vegetarian vampire of the Groucho Club in London to rural sober family man.
"It's amazing, the friends you can make, just through cheese. People get very emotional about it."
So like I just finished reading Slash's biography. Its a totally faciniating insight into what makes him tick and it serves to put the whole GNR I hate Axl rose thing in context.
Some great stories are shared. Most of them involve fucking, or drugs, combinations of the two and stories of how the band got together, had sex with anything that looked their way, sold a few albums and broke up.
The story that comes to mind right away is Slash and Izzy are having sex with a some girl (its always some girl). As he is not using a condom, Izzy pulls out at the apt timing.. and serves his load all over Slash's leg.
Slash's decision to become a musician is amusing for his nativity.
He found this professional bass player who agreed to teach him if he turned up with a guitar. So Slash gets from his beloved grandmother an acoustic guitar which only has one string on it. So he turns up for his first lesson with the guitar and his first lesson is thus the difference between a bass guitar and a 6 string...
Some interesting facts:
- November Rain in its original form as a jam thing was over 18 minutes long.
- You can melt down Oxy Contin and inject yourself with it.
- Slash did the soundtrack for Beverly Hills Cop 3
- Slash played on a Rod Stewart album.
