We were listening to old Misfits albums in the Ponsonby store today and Cameron told us a classic story about how a car stopped on the side of the road to ‘pick him up’ after a Misfits show he’d been to in the late 90’s. The car was driven by a woman in her 30’s and she asked him “How much for me and my friends?” pointing to the other occupants of the car who were two guys in their 40’s. It took Cameron ages to figure out he was being solicited.
I never knew what a bisexual hooker looked like before. Apparently they look like Cameron.
Somehow our “staff wanted” ad attached itself to the internet and then went on a trip around the world. Poor old Geordie got over a thousand applicant emails from pretty much most countries that we had ever heard of and we made him stay up till 4am replying to as many as possible. There was some pretty funny stuff in there – and some stuff that might be pretty funny if we could actually read Korean, Croatian, Polish and whatever language it is that goes “adfaf djjylk yulkigh reshemm”. One guy wanted to know if he could come and live in our basement, I guess as some sort of gimp, and another girl just sent Geordie a picture of her and her friends making out in a spa pool. I bet the NZ Immigration Department gets sent emails like that all the time.
