Here it is , New Years Eve ,just like we knew it would . The all ages show last night was block-rockin' , hot and sweaty . Tonight it's the turn of the old schoolies . Get there early to see the Golden Dogs , you'll be glad you did .
Here's a couple of 'weird scenes inside the gold mine' from last night .

Vote now . It's got nothing to do with democracy .

Honestly , what happened ?

Gwen Stefani used to be like everyone else . Like one of us , only better . The great white haired hope . Everybody knew someone just like her , only not as good .You were like , yup , I get it ... No doubt , so-cal ska , bubbly not fizzy .... probably loves the Stones and Tom Waits too . God Bless her .

But now ? She's like some freezed dried , robo - trollop , sucked into the same infotainment machine that spits out the same ol ' insider crap . You know what I'm talking about . No need to name names . And what 's with the songs ? And those lil' oompahs that follow her around ? It's not glam , it's tack . Call the cops , they've stolen her brain . It's like Rod Stewart never happened .
Cool still shots from Emergency alumni Ian McGettigan's latest video opus . Also seen is collaborator and former Thrush Hermit , Rob Benvie . Buy his novel at all good novel shops .
