Mattweez's Makeover Mansion

Hello darlings!

Welcome to the first of our makeovers on Mattweez's Makeover Mansion.

Here we take ordinary folks and make the over using the latest in technology.

So who's first?

Well let me introduce to you, our lovely local model, Dana.

Dana: Hi everyone!

Mattweez: Hello Dana. Thank you so much for being here.

Dana: No worries Mattweez. Anything for you!

Mattweez: Now Dana settle down. There'll be time for that later. But now we have to get to the task at hand.

Dana: Okay sorry.

Mattweez: No worries. Moving on, first lets try the look that all of the kids seem to be wearing these days.

The "I've-just-been-beaten-by-my-parents-who-I-hate-even-though-they-don't-beat-me-and-I-live-in-the-suburbs-and-have-a-job-at-the-local-fast-food-store" look.

(After a few minutes...)

Mattweez: Voila!

Dana: I can feel the apathy rising already! I would care about it but I don't!

Mattweez: Transformation successful! Another victory for Mattweez's Makeover Mansion!

Attendant: Oh chu are so fa-boo-lus Mattchu! I do not know how chu do it time afta time!

Mattweez: (yells) Quiet Pierre! I am working!

(Shuffling and quiet whimpering is heard)

Mattweez: Sorry about that intruption Dana!

Dana: Not at all.

Mattweez: Shall we press on?

Dana: Please.

Mattweez: Say you are going to a solumn affair like a funeral. This is how I suggest you go.

(More minutes pass...)

Mattweez: And.....done!

Dana: Very understated. It's almost like I'm not wearing anything at all.

Mattweez: And you shouldn't sister. Why? Because at a funeral you don't want to wear more make-up than the person who the event is held for do you? No way. Major faux pas.

Dana: Oh sorry to doubt you.

Mattweez: You are forgiven... this once. Any further violations of my trust will be delat with servely.

Dana: Really? Do you promise?

Mattweez: (laughs) Oh you little scamp. I see your true colours now. Let me just...

(Oh you know the deal)

Mattweez: (Breathless) Finally. My piece de resistance. La Madana!

Dana: Wow!

Mattweez: (panting) Indeed.

Dana: How can I ever thank you?

Mattweez: No thanks are necessary. It is all in a days work at...

Mattweez's Makeover Mansion!!
Tune in Next week when Mattweez makes the ultimate makeover...HIMSELF!!!

Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - Today a local young man remembered that he had an online diary, or Blog, at it is known as in the internet world. Upon discovery of this, he promptly logged in an made a post for the first time since early February 2006.

While he is almost certain that no-one reads the Blog, the man said "Well when I do get some friends I'll try to let them know of it so they can read what I write."

When questioned as to whether the prospects were good at attaining friends, the man begin to weep uncontrolably and left the room running.

Writing Goes Here

So I guess I'd better update this. Been real busy. Too busy. Annoyingly busy.

I suppose you all want to know what's going on.

Well I'm working pretty heavily on getting a website site up for Vena Cava. They're a student theatre group I'm part of. We want a more stable and official web presence. It should be good once done.

Other things, been shooting a few movies. One I was a prisoner in. Another I'm an alien bent on destroying the world.

It's okay but tiring.

Got a ticket to Suicide Girls show here is Brisvegas. So if anyone out there wants to go with me buy your tix at Skinnys. Or if you already have tix, email or note me so we can meet up or something. Should be a kickass show.

Been looking for a house as well. But it's so tiring as well. We're all over the whole looking thing. We just want to be approved at a house. But I suppose everyone is looking for acceptance.

Man...I'm so bored. I'm at work and it's so slow. But I get to go home soon and sleep. And then no work until Friday. Which is good.

So if anyone wants to hook up for anything I'm game. Just drop me a bell.

Check ya.

Multiple Developments

Maybe my thoughts that I am actually not of this planet are true.

I got proposed a role to be in a sci-fi flick as an alien. Aparently according to people I have never met yet have seen my work, I'd be perfect for the role. Co-incidence?

Then I find out that I have no real place anywhere; Moved on by police (do I REALLY look like I hang with those Emo kids in the Queen St Mall); meetings with uni folk RE: enrolement; assorted personal relationship restructuring.

So, does this mean I am an alien?

My answer is yes. Maybe not an extraterrestial, maybe not even from another country. But my theory is that I am a Extra-TIME-restial. I.E someone/thing from another time.

Back to School

So now I've been back in Brisbane for some time now, I thought i'd better update.

If I've seen you, it was good, if I haven't seen you yet, we need to catch up. Call/email me.

But onto better news. I'm back to school at the moment. Not anything real but a Barnes and Noble run thing. It's a introductory course in Dungeons and Dragons (DnD)

It's online and free.

So anyone interested check it out at the link below:

It's a great place to start for those interested but never played.

You Know You're In Australia When...

There is a New Zealand VS Sri Lanka One-Day Cricket Match on in the CHILDREN'S Lounge.

New Zealand won.

The Legacy Continues...

Striding into the international arrival lounge full of confidence, our hero raises his arms to the gods and announces in a loud, inspiring voice, "I love you Australia!"

The proclaimation is followed by a scattering of cheers from our hero's countrymen and women in agreement to this definative statement.

Our hero has been too long from his land of birth. From the land he calls home. But now, upon his return, he is not afraid to hide his feelings for the country and people who have given so much to him.

To be continued...

Everything's Quiet...

On New Years Day.

Happy New Year on the Christian Calendar everyone! We joined you all in 2006 last night.

I had an alright night. I stayed at the hostel due to the weather (except for a few hour jaunt out towards the 'big moment') but I met some pretty cool people. Some Irish girls who are movng to Adelaide to live, some girls from Toowoomba, some guys from Melbourne who work at the Ski Fields and more. But from my journey here I have noticed that about 25% of the occupants here at the hostel are Australian. It's weird but I suppose we are a nation of travellers.

I miss home a bit more each day. There's only so much you can do here. Particularly when it's raining. But I'm going to see Harry Potter 4 later tonight so that should be good.

I went shopping to pick up some Christmas Presents for my family today. I didn't know what to get them but after talking to them I think I got some stuff they'll like.

Tommorow I leave the US for Australia. So I might check out the Wax Museum in the morning and then head to the airport and stay there. That way I won't miss my flight and I can just do nothing and relax.

Hope everything back home is great for each of you who read this.

See you all soonish.

Sluts and Stars

Well hi there reader/s.

I'm writing this post from the hostel where I'm staying in Hollywood. And for all of those under the impression that California is the land of sun, surf and stars, what I am about to divulge is something you may want to not read.


Hollywood is filled with homeless/unemployed people, sex shops posing as 'fashion' outlets and all with a tacky helping of Americana.


All that aside, it's an alright place. I have some pictures of places but the computers here do not have USB connections so I can't upload them. I'll make a CD and distribute when i get home methinks.

I went to Graumann's Chinese Theatre today. It's great. I was the only one who paid the $5 to do the walking tour so me and the guy had a neat time just riffing and chatting about America, Australia and of course the theatre.

And all those out there playing the 'What Famous Person Does Matt Look Like?" pool, those who have placed bets on Johnny Depp will get a huge boost. My feet and hands fit perfectly into Mr Depp's at Graumann's. So rejoice all those who have that wager.

The bad thing is that it is raining. In my entire US trip, I have had one clear day. ONE! The others have been raining or overcast.

I'm going to the Chronic (WHAT?) les of Narnia today due to rain. But later tonight it's the New Year's Eve 'party' at the hostel. But Happy New Year to you all back in Australia as it's already happened. It should be around 6am on the 1st of Jan 2006 there at the moment.

It was good talking to those I could get a hold of yesterday. But I'll see you all real soon. I'm back on the 4th of Jan 2006 Aussie Time.

Well I'm bored. Seeing if anyone is on MSN. (I doubt it) And my doubts prove correct.

Oh I had my first American McDonalds today. It was okay. We have better OJ but they have better sausage. (Nothing Suss!)

I'm really looking forward to coming home. I'll have my own bed in my room. Plus I'll get to see you all back in Australia again.

Take care all and the deadline for requests for items is 24 hours from now. So you have until 6am Jan 2nd 2006 to email or note me any specific requets for items.

Take care all and I'll catch you on the flipside.
