The Boys Are Coming... The Boys Are Coming!!!

So after spending the whole day away from the Internet with chores... I sat down in the late arvo for a cuppa & to catch up on some emails & I get tagged by a friend asking me which ticket I bought?? Ticket? For what? Yep my response!! For what??

Well much to my surprise, shock, excitement & horror (not having enough $ for a decent ticket) I nearly had a stroke when I saw the link to AHBL6 featuring Jensen & Jaren in Melbourne & Sydney!! Holy crap!! They are coming to my home town!!! I don't have far to travel & I'm gonna see them for the first time in 2 years!!

After mentioning my dilemma to Dad he felt bad that I missed out on another con which cost me around $600 when he had to go in for open heart surgery, (late last year) so he said it's only fair that he lends me the extra money to get the best ticket available & yep after selling out in almost 3 hours I managed to get the very last Ultimate Ticket for Melbourne!!

I can't go to Sydney but seeing the boys in my home town for the first time is a gift!!!

Just a quick "what's goin' on" post for anyone who may be wondering what happened to me.

After quitting my main job, & going on my last trip to Van Con in 2012, I have spent most of my time basically taking care of Mum who has severe Osteo-Arthritis in the hips & legs, Lymphodema, and Vascular Dementia.

The rest of my free time is spent doing chores, walking my beautiful staffy "Dean", and hanging out with some amazing friends for some "me" time... when I'm not working as a casual at the footy (Aussie Rules Football) or the cricket.

I continue to adore Supernatural & Jensen Ackles is still the love of my life LOL. (Really looking forward to Season 10!) I don't get to travel any more because of my lack of work so seeing the J2 boys is pretty much history for me. I do have many fond memories of my adventures & the people I have met along the way though.

I go to the occasional Aussie-based convention here & there, but they are too few & far between, and the J's never come down to see us. I was supposed to go to one in a few weeks where I'd finally get to meet the Ghostfacers & Alaina Huffman, but I can't go now...

Next week my Dad is going into Royal Melbourne Hospital for open heart surgery. He's having an Aortic Valve Transplant & a quadruple bypass... so I'll have another person to take care of for the next 3 months.

I'm not on here as much as I used to be either but I still pop in from time to time. My apologies if I don't always comment, but sometimes I just don't have enough time.

Anyway that's it for now.

Thanks for taking the time to read my post :)

Miachel Bublé WOW!!

Gotta hand it to Michael Bublé that man sure knows how to put on a show. Not too many gimmicks or sound effects, just a brilliant bunch of musicians, a velvety smooth voice, a cheeky demeanour & a heart of gold.

On arrival I had just missed the man himself, outside in the foyer posing with fans for photos & signing autographs for anyone who wanted them. Reminded me of his sound check at the MCG during grand final rehearsals in 2005 when he did the same after putting in an impromptu gig for the staff & volunteers at the ground on the day!

Michael Bublé's opening support act was the inimitable Naturally 7 This is a vocal group who only use their voices to not only mimic musical instruments but also perform incredible acapella wizardry of original songs and some amazing covers of some popular hits! They had us up & dancing after a couple of songs.

When the main act finally came out, it was nothing short of spectacular... A touch of Rhapsody In Blue for the intro before the curtain was raised & a row of flames lit up the stage for a split second, as Michael ripped into his first song "Fever" this was the only elaborate staging, then it was just a bit of clever lighting, some moving portions of stage. This is a show celebrating music & vocals.

After that, Michael settled into some swing classics & then began lightening the mood with lots of banter. During that he managed to spot a little girl holding a colourful sign, he asked for her to be brought up to the front of the stage where he posed for photos for the girl's mum. Then he signed the sign and joked that he didn't put it a name on it so she could sell it on eBay when she was older.

Michael was responding to shout outs from members of the crowd constantly. He loves to interact with the fans! His humor was a little toned down on account that his parents were at the show & he didn't want to embarrass them. LOL Cheeky bugger!

Toward the end of the show, Naturally 7 came back out & did a few acapella songs together with Michael. My fav was the Jackson 5's "I Want you Back"

After his encore, Michael again finished with an acapella version of his favourite Leon Russell song. Totally unaccompanied, no microphone, no amplifiers, just a man & his golden voice.

Again everyone left the show with smiles from ear to ear, some clutching onto the little red & white hearts that were shot out all over the venue earlier that evening.

Thank you Michael!
