The Tiger Makes One Lucky Reader’s Weekend (#5Gum Winner)

winner-trophyIn internet competitions, as in life, there can sadly only be one winner and though I’d like to reward EVERYONE who entered the #5GumExperience competition yesterday, sadly I don’t have enough tickets.

The challenge was to write in the comments section and tell me what the term “Gonzo journalism” means to you cause yeah, that’s what I’m looking for, a little Gonzo journalist to send on my behalf.

Before we get into the winner, here’s what Gonzo journalism means to me. For starters it’s subjective as fuck, YOUR thoughts, YOUR feelings, YOUR experiences in their rawest, least filtered form. It is unapologetic, abrasive and real. It’s the truth, YOUR truth, whether people like it or not.

So, after much deliberation on my part, I’ve finally chosen a winner and that lucky person. Is none other than. LEAH – YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYYAYAYAYAYAYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!

Congrats you flippin’ badass! In case you were wondering, here’s Leah’s entry:

Gonzo journalism,reporting it as i see it, breathe it, and experience it, with all the elements that makes the Kooks concert amazing! And who needs a tiger onesie when i can paint my body and face and be more creative(and possibly more wonderfully crazy looking:))!

Ps. Im am absolutely restless with the idea of not being able to go, would be eternally grateful, and how cool would it be to write and article and have an excuse to take more pictures than usual!

Can’t fault Leah’s enthusiasm one bit – Tiger body paint for the flippin’ WIN! Here’s a taste of what you’ll be experiencing on Sat night you lucky fish!



Leah, I’ll be emailing you your tickets shortly. To everyone else who entered I hope that some tickets somehow find their way to you because this weekend is gonna be off the CHIZAIN!

With that I’m hanging up my spurs for the day and drinking a cold beer.

Fuck yeah.



Friday Lolz – Now Featuring A Double-Dose Of What The Fuck

tumblr_mkwewaHjzC1rccsbqo1_1280I tell ya, the older I get the weirder my sense of humour becomes. It’s reaching a stage where I’m seriously starting to think the things that crack me up are literally funny to no one but me.

So here’s a little experiment in taste. Today I’m going all out with my Friday Lolz and posting some truly bizarre shit that I found hilarious to see if anyone out there relates.

If this shit makes you laugh, leave a comment below and let’s see how many comments I rack up by the end of the day. I’m not a gambling man, but if I was, I’d bet on about two (if I’m lucky).

To be fair, not all of this made me crack up, some of it I’m just posting because it’s fucking weird.

Are ya ready kids?















And my all-time favourite of the week…



Have a killer weekend Party People. I’ll be announcing the #5gum winner at lunchtime.
