    i shook hands with Malcolm Mclaren in the mid eighties when he came to East Sydney TAFE, National Art School at Darlinghurst and did a talk. I was doing a visual arts course and he was invited to talk about himself and his many conquest. I remember it was held
    inside the beautiful old sandstone building inside the gaol complex within the school and every weirdo,punk,goth, mohawk and skinheads and struggling inner city would be artist was there...

    I went to school with Anthony Minnicello years 8 thru 10 at high school.
    Before that i went to school in bexley. We used to give this chick a hard time and she used to tell us her brother was gonna come smash us. He came looking for us one day when we wagged school. Nobody knew Anthony Mundine in those days, lol
    Also played an extra in the movie "The Matrix". Best paid work I ever did. Alot of waiting around lol. Got paid niceley for those 3 days. Bought the DVD as soon as it came out, too bad my face is never seen lol

    I have no famous direct relatives (distantly related to David Livingstone) nor am I famous for anything (Still waiting for my 15 minutes).

    Have met a lot of members of various Aussie bands etc but to be honest most are up themselves as they dont live in the real world. The only exception was The Cat Empire...after a gig a few years ago we all stayed back with the band (everyone except Felix) and crew (the ex manager of the Tiv in Brissie is a friend) and jammed until about 5am...everyone swapping instruments every 30 mins or so...was a great night. They backed up the next night with an even better gig...never seen a joint jumping as much to their unique sound.

    I met muhammad ali when i was 3 or something,

    ummm i asked some afl player from the essendon bombers who came to our school how much money he earnt a year, i was about 5-6.

    I saw some guy with dreads at a shopping centre, he nodded and said hey and i did the same, about an hour later i realised he was the lead singer from Korn.

    My step dads ancestors in medieval times used to get people to come to church lock it up then kill them all and take their money and things.

    and i saw all these amazing bands at no sleep til, oderus at gwar saw me with the white shirt that has writing that only shows when you get splattered from the onstage "fluids" and focused his "cuttlefish" fluids on me.

    that's all i can think of ...... for now
