Went to Love Music Hate Racism at Trafalgar Square yesterday. (An all day gig/rally against racism, fascism and the BNP). Was pretty great. Went last year as well, it's a really good thing, to have so many people kind of united. The speakers were good, and the bands too. Babyshambles were supposed to play, but Pete Doherty's been arrested again. Drew played though, in his place. He played Albion and it was really sad, he seemed so sad and it was all so poignant if you know what I mean. It was good to have 3000 people chanting 'Fuck the police' when we heard about Pete though. Very punk, twas.

Peter played by himself last year, that was so great. And we caught his water bottle (had to fight a bit for it though!). But this year there were good bands anyway. Metro Riots played again, who are the best thing ever. And Lethal Bizzle, ditto. There were alot of good people. A beatboxing guy which was really awesome. And the Paddingtons were good. Gods, loads of people.

Got a bit hot though, and very annoyed at some idiot in the crowd near us (yes, less with the unity then). She was firstly like, displaying her nipples, which was just disgusting. And then she asked if she could go in front of us several times, for no apparent reason- she wasn't even short or anything! And eventually she went in front of us, and she had that long hair that she didn't tie back so it was getting stuck to my hands. Okay, so it wasn't that pleasant at some points. I was also stuck beside some literally 7 year old boy, by himself! He was getting crushed, and didn't leave! What a fool! I didn't even feel sorry for him, he should not have been there.

But yeah, it was really good, and a great great cause, although as some of the speakers said- it really shouldn't even have to happen in the 21st century, racism and fascism should just have been eradicated so long ago. Photos coming soon. They'll be pretty crap though, was kind of hard to take them!

Love Music Hate Racism sounds like such an encouraging event, it's really such a shame they don't do something like that here, as Australia is the most disgusting racist country.
It's very sad about Peter :(
"It was good to have 3000 people chanting 'Fuck the police' when we heard about Pete though. Very punk, twas."
That sounds fucking awesome, haha. V. Punk Rock indeed.
Can't wait for the pictures :D

Yeah it's really great. Really? I always imagined Australia to be a really happy place where everyone was nice to each other. :S *is weird*
I know, it's so bad about Peter, he's really going inside now, it's terrible.
Yes! The pictures will be awesome! Actually no, i only took like 4 and they're probably all fuzzy. Oh well. x

The crowd were soo violent. After you went there were these two girls trying to get to the front for Roll Deep and I think they were actually prepared to kill us.

I know, it really is- i think its because I got that account where you get 15 icons but you have to have adverts on your page, and its completely screwed up the layout. But 15 icons, for free!
You should've gone, twas good. Actually I saw someone that I thought was you standing next to Caitlin- I was like hmm? and then no, it wasn't. x

I am a complete fucking retard I forgot to text Caitlin! I'm glad you had a good time! It's odd we were right at the front I only had 2 girls standing in front of me (we were to the left for Josh obviously!) and it wasn't that violent up there. Some girl pushed me out of the way to get to Lethal Bizzle and kept screaming I LOVE YOU HAVE MY BABIES!!! :/

Did you see the odd fight in Boy Kill Boy? We got pushed foward quite hard and I turned round and this guy threw a bottle at another guy or something, and I think they had a little fight. Everyone around them started to look really aggressive, I was likr HELP! But the security calmed it down thank gawd!

We saw The Pads "backstage" and Tom, Grant and Josh were ghetto dancing to the hiphop acts. God I almost died of lolz! They were with the singer from the Cazals and him and this other guy caught us staring (and taking pictures *cough*) and they started pointing at us and grabbing their crotches and making blow job gestures argh lolz!

The Pads were really good weren't they? It's a shame they only played 3 songs. After Sorry Josh looked round and caught me staring at him and he stared straight back into my eyes and gave me this massive smile OMG! BEST 5-10 SECONDS EVER! *will stop rambling*

We were right at the front too! Ah man thats a shame we didn't bump into each other! Well we were more on the right/in the middle. Alas, no fun/safe times.
No, I didn't see it but that sounds scary! I did get a bit worried at one point at the amount of people security kept having to pull out of the crowd cause they were like dying and collapsing.
Omg Josh ghetto dancing! *drools*
Ew with the Cazals singer, what a paedo. But in a way thats quite flattering in a horrible way- you attract semi-famous rockstars. But yeah, ew again!
But omgz i want to see those pictures of the ghetto dancing!! Yeah I though they were great, but at that point I was pretty hot and tired so I probably didnt enjoy it as much as I shouldve.
OMG!! Woo! Score with the Josh looking-at-you-ing! He was hot stuff, as always.
How annoying was that band with the Peter-wannabe and the other members who all look about 12? They were even more annoying when I found out he calls himself Ping Doherty, and goes out with Peaches Geldof (eurgh).
But it was v fun times in general, I think! x

I looked for you but It'd be hard to find anyone there, there was about 45,000 people!
There was this guy behind us who couldn't even stand, and the security kept dragging him out. It took them like 3 minutes to pull him over the barrier and they blocked my Josh view :( He kept coming back in though WTF?! It wasn't that bad where we were, we only got pushed a little bit, The Forum's way worse! (I'm supposed to be getting ready to go there now instead of rambling about LMHR. WHEE BLACK WIRE!)
IT WAS THE BEST THING EVER. I watched them instead of the rappers. Tom was really pulling out the moves! Lisa Moorish was with them too, and I love her so I was happy :D Liz saw Josh slapping some guys arse too but I missed that. His fiance showed up after they played and he kept kissing her. Me and Ashlee were like *pouts* lolz!
His mate was doing it too but I dunno if he's in a band. It always seems to happen to me doesn't it? *facepalm* They probably thought they'd give me a show seeing as my eyes were glued to the backstage area ;)
I didn't get any pictures of the ghetto dancing. I got one of Josh on his phone, and I made this girl take one of Tom sitting really camp on a railing. My friend Marta took a video of Tom dancing around though!
HE WAS! Apparently he smiled at us after Panic Attack too but I missed that one. Liz said he looked at us when he was pulling his RAWR face too *squee* I'm just happy with the smile I got ;)
Trafalgar? They weren't very good at all. I did think the little blonde haired boy in it was cute though. I've seen the singer before and I can't think where! I found his Myspace and one of the girl's that commented I met at a gig last year, so maybe he was with her or something. Ping Doherty?! urgh grow up! I saw the Peaches thing too :/ Liz actually kept seeing him around and going KYLIE JOSH WAS OVER THERE! :/ HE LOOKS NOTHING LIKE JOSH!!! Anyway it was v. fun times, even though we missed The Paddingtons playing Nambucca (sp?) afterwards. We could have seen them twice in one day *pout*

Ah yay! have fun at Black Wire! They're fantastic, they'll be great!
Arrrgh Josh's fiance should just not be.
haha oh dear it does always seem to happen to you! one day one of these times will be not so safe aahhh *protects from weirdo creeps*
nooo no pictures of ghetto dancing! this is not good! ah well the thought of it is amusing enough!
AHH PING DOHERTY THE THOUGHT OF HIM BOILS MY BLOOD. Actually no its not that bad. But Doherty- the cheek! And Ping-wtf?! What a loser.
Nambucca! Yes! I ♥ Nambucca. Dammit, Paddingtons twice in one day wouldve been awesome. x
