NZ -> Singapore

  • so, i was on the plane today. well, we all were. (we're in singapore now!). and being that we were sitting in business class, there were a lot of business men just hanging out, shipping champagne and laughing at things that i don't really understand. so, this business man is hanging with his other business friend and they're wearing the exact same outfit... only business man #2 is wearing his grey slacks so tight and high on his waist that his balls are like suffocating. and i can see this happening. like his pants are not leaving any room for my imagination. not that i would've wanted to imagine it in the first place. the worst part is that he is just standing right there, in my direct eyeline and i can't. stop. looking. it was a train wreck of manly horror. maybe i should've just said something. honestly, i kinda felt like i had a right to. what a sight it was, you guys. i wish you all could've been there.

    in other news... haha... this tour has honestly done a million wonders for me. being in all these places and meeting people who live half a world (literally) away from where we're from. it's such a blessing to play these shows and see all of you out here. japan was incredible. from the shows, to the dinners and shopping trips, the sight seeing. we were able to work with our original promoter - from the first trip we ever took over there. so the whole thing just felt like one big party. being able to play soundwave festival for the first time could not have been any better. our sideshows ruled. youmeatsix are always a blast to hang with... and the festivals were. massive. thanks to everyone who stood under the blistering sun all day to hang with us. i thought i would die on stage in perth. we made it though. honestly, i still don't get how zac puts on those shows and makes it all the way through playing as hard as he does. metal as hell, y'all.i have to say, new zealand just about takes the cake. we had never been there, though, so maybe that's what it is. our friend rowan, from the jury & the saints, took us around to all of his favorite spots and some of us even stayed over at his place to watch movies and climb trees. you guys, i climbed the highest tree ever... i would show you the pics but i went swimming in the ocean with my blackberry - which has since died - and that's where all the photo proof is.

    (SIDE NOTE: Anne Hathaway is absolutely stunning, kill me.)

    and now, here we are in Singapore for the first time! we were greeted by some crazy fans at the airport. sometimes it makes me so sad when we can't stay and hang. if we had a van and were in charge of driving it.. we'd make our own schedule. unfortunately, we get driven all over the place by folks that actually know where they're going in all these cities. so they make the rules. hahah, it's probably a good idea. we used to get lost every day touring in our van. anyways, i can't wait to just be on stage tomorrow and see how these shows are gonna go down. bet it will be unbelievable.

    i gotta run. think i'm gonna bug jeremy.

    love you guys so much.

    ps. we saw so many of our friends over the past week... and we want you to listen to em and know how awesome they are. Here ya goooo - youmeatsix, The Jury & The Saints, Alexisonfire, Comeback Kid, Set Your Goals, Sunny Day Real Estate. there are plenty more but i'll save them for another time!

Play in Calgary? It's an amazing crowd for sure. Your music's so inspirational to me, hope to be as big as you someday, and I'm serious about that. I'm practicing every day now, going to start it up with my friend Amanda soon hopefully. You guys are probably my favorite and have been for a long time. Shanks for inspiring me. That business man thing? Happened at school the other day to one of my friends, not exactly breathtaking, I'd agree.

Wow, poor Hayley....you definitely experienced some manly horror on that flight...haha!! But at least you guys had fun on that leg of the tour (too bad you swam with the Blackberry). I wish I could go to your show here in Charlottesvile in April, but I have class that evening, so I will have to wear the Paramore t-shirt I got at Hot Topic last weekend that day in memeorium :)

Singapore loves you so much :') The 5-6 hour wait in the sun was nothing! Remember to come back before 5 years like you promised! I'll be right in front of the stage again!

THANKS FOR THE GREATEST MOST AWESOME-EST CONCERT HERE IN MANILA, PHILIPPINES!!!!!!!!!!! I hope you had as much fun as your fans had last night!!! I'VE WAITED FOR YOU FOR YEARS (since all we know is falling) OH FINALLY! After 2 hours of lining up, and 3 hours waiting just to get to the front row, the concert was definitely worth all the trouble. STILL CAN'T GET OVER PARA-THRILLA IN MANILA!!!!!

it sucks that you had such a "great" seat on the plane ride. but i couldnt help but to laugh at the situation. its awesome that you're able to go all over the world and tell us cool stories about where you have been. i'll check out the new bands you listed. ROCK ON PARAMORE!!!

Great show here in the philippines!... ahahaha it was really nice seeing you live finally, hope you will do another show here, sometime in the future, and i will make sure that i wont settle for silver ticket, cause all i see from you guys are youre hairs...LMAO....
MARYMAY's picture

hi hayley and for the whole band. you guys really rock. the show here in the philippines was the best. and i'm still looking forward of seeing you here again. i agree with vrendon's comment. i'm also quite disappointed when you didn't perform "my heart", nonetheless, i know that Josh wasn't here to do his part. STILL, Paremore rocks! \m/. the whole night was really great.
