Splendour update: super smash brothers

Well that’s that. another splendour in the grass music festival over and both Byron Bay and the Allen boys will never be the same.

The festival was bloody tops. There was too much good music and outstanding acts for me to list them all here.

The only complaint I would have is the mud. It made me feel like I was at the Glastonbury festival.

Needless to say, we had a beer or two and may have gotten a little loud and rough.

I was playing my favourite game “push dook into the garden” when he decided to fire up and join a beer bottle with my teeth.

Did you know that the glass of a beer bottle is actually stronger than human teeth?

I do…

what a pretty smile you have!

The up side was that I could open cans without a can opener.

Mum always told us boys when we were growing up that if you’re going to do something, you have to do it properly. So the next day as we were walking to the festival we decided to take a shortcut through a school. This meant that we had to scale a 6ft fence with spikes at the top. Easy right?


Stuart’s arm caught on the spike at the top and as he jumped down it peeled the skin off his forearm like a banana. He didn’t realise it at first and I was trying to grab his arm through the fence before he got a look at it.

look at him looking away and biting the pillow

A bum on a push bike helped us flag down a lift that dumped us out the front of the emergency ward before gettin the hell out of there. The doctor that treated dook was about 25, had a goatee, sideburns and a che guvera t-shirt on. Typical Byron Bay.

Despite my request that the doctor stitch faster, we didn’t make it in time to see Matisyahu.
