BIG WACKY SUMMERTIME NEIGHBORHOOD SIEGE
to cut this story short (y'know if you're short on time)
just tune into the news tonight, if you live in Adelaide.. (Tuesday night)
- best bet, try channel 7, channel 9.. dunno if I saw any others..
yup.. it's been a funny one..
been working on "HEAD in a BOX" all day / all night..
tweaking out the bugs, adding details.. in the hopes of having it finished before NYE..
so.. you could say I wuz focused.. tunnel visioned.. buried under headphones and blissfully oblivious to the wacky circus happening outside my window..
it's odd how I didn't even really notice the signs..
the fire engine parked outside my house..
the 3 cop cars..
the people milling around the street.. gawking at the spectacle of it all..
finally curiousity got the better of me...
I went for a wander out in my little street..
people everywhere.. camera crews down at the end..
cops warding people off..
I only got a few snippets of (dis)information..
apparently, just at the end of my street.. (barely 50 metres away)
in a little block of flats near a bridge..
this musician guy, apparently speedin' off his dial..
wuz holding one of his friends hostage..
starting a siege with the cops..
star force elite division cops with the flackjackets and the ninja gear go storming in to surround the place...
there's a possible threat he's gonna blow the place up..
something about the gas..
a gas van arrives.. in efforts to shut it off..
camera crews are flocking like flies..
but the cops back 'em off out've line-of-sight..
I dunno how much of this I'd believe..
but, still it wuz oddly entertaining to watch this morbid circus unfold just outside my house..
there I'd be.. working a few minutes in me studio..
walk outside.. check the progress of the siege..
go back into the studio to tweak the track some more..
made even weirder by the track I'm working on..
whilst a siege takes place just down the round.. I'm working on this in the headphones..
"HEAD IN A BOX!!.. HEAD IN A BOX!!.. SO FUCKING PARANOID.. SO FUCKING PARANOID.."
mmmmm.. smell the irony.. ;)
