The Down Under Club (aka Aussie Club)

Recommended Posts

pasalaska

This club is for any Australians (and greater Australasians, including New Zealand and Oceania, if they so wish) to talk about local Aussie issues/politics/news/etc, touring bands, any previous Australian Green Day shows, and whatever else they like so long as it's related to Australia or being Australian (so basically, not spam. Or I'll get mad. Like this: mad.gif )

The idea of this club is to talk to and get to know fellow Green Day fans that live close to, or at least in the same country as you. Here we can discuss things that would otherwise get lost in the greater GDC forums, or that are relevant only to people living in or around Australia.

With that said, let's start with introductions!

Hello, my name is Aska, and I currently live in Perth. I've probably already spoken to some of you on here, and maybe even met some of you in person on the last Green Day tour in 2009.

I know that Aussie Green Day fans can be few and far between - at least in Perth that's the case - so I hope this club helps to bring people closer, and helps Aussie GDCers find some other Green Day-inclined people close to them. I've met my closest friends on here, so I hope this club can help other people do the same smile.gif

edit:

here's a list of active Aussies in this club and on the forum in general. This is by no means the only Aussies on this forum, just the ones that post a lot. If you'd like to be added to this list, just request it in a post in the club and I will add you :)

*flail flail flail*

i appreciate this thread greatly. the australian gdcers i got to know were all in the 09 tour threads. now that there aren't any impending australian tour threads to bond in, this club seems very necessary :)

and hopefully it'll get me back into the gdc more... WHO KNOWS?!

so yeah, i'm sarah, and i'm from perth as well.

and australian related topics?... how about all that planking?

Hi Sarah, welcome back to the GDC. And would you look at that, we went to all the same shows! funny that.

yep, that was the idea, bring back the peeps from the '09 tour threads as well as any other sad, lonely Aussie fans. I miss the fun (and very, VERY on-topic) times that were had in those threads :wub:

Planking. I personally am a fan, as I think it will help weed out any, uh, defects in the gene pool.

and some of the photos are pretty epic, not gonna lie.

oh i forgot the fun that could be had on here! i just went and posted in the doctor who thread.

so things don't have to be specifically about green day in here? just related to things on and around this continent? i would so love to meet other australian green day fans. i mean, after last year im friends with more than i ever thought existed, but im always hopeful of more.

i just find it endlessly amusing when they use the word on news broadcasts.

nope, you can talk about anything Australian. Green Day doesn't even have to enter the thought process.

You could be all 'WOW, I loved Julia Gillard's press secretary's hair today!' and that'd be fine.

and I agree, serious broadcasters saying planking is rather amusing :D

sure, we can have a mascot, but before that, does someone with photoshop/general computer art skills want to make a banner like the one Andres posted?

Just have it say 'Aussie Club member' or something like that.

any takers? thanks :)

hehe :D

Also, YAY another Aussie Dr Who fan!

You bastard, I was gonna make this club :dry:

it seems only fitting that as our great and esteemed leader and head of state are females, that this club should also be lead by a female.

so nyaaa :P
