10 years before the Birth of Overland Metalhead (in November) 1985 there was a marriage between 2 people in a small town in New Zealand. A man called Tony and a woman called Jackie.
Tony sailed from Southampton to Fremantle in 1971 leaving behind his shitty Middlesbrough town/ wonderful HighGate Life. A year later Jackie sailed from some port in New Zealand to Sydney so she could be an Au Pair and later on become a nurse.#
Jackie and Thomas were the only ones in their family to emigrate abroad. They were in Australia during the shitty Whilam days. When Jackie and Tony married in Napier 1975, Fraser was the Prime Minister
Tony and Jackie were a newly married couple in Sydney working hard to make a new life as emigrants when Whitlam and Fraser were making everyones life tough.
A son was born in 1979 and then another son in 1981. In November 1985 a boy was born who would go on to become the Overland Metalhead (ME)
I went to New Zealand in 1987 aged two. It was at a time when New Borns , Infants, toddlers and children didn't need to have their own passport to enter a foreign land. I have no memories of age 2 even though my aunt Cecily would continue to remind people how sad I was when my father when out for walks without me.
I went back to New Zealand in 1990 for my cousin Clare's wedding. I do remember this event because age 5 in 1990 I just started remembering things. I remember not wanting to be at the wedding and neither did my own Father or my Mothers brother in law.
When I returned to Australia on the 1st January 1991. I never got to set foot outside Australia for 15 long years. I went back to New Zealand in 2006 age 20. I had seen a few of my Aunt and Uncles who came over to visit my family in Sydney, but this event was a big reunion for all sorts.
I have fond memories of that trip to New Zealand in 2006. My Aunt Kathy drove my Mother, brother and I from Palmerston North to Napier and back. On the way there my Aunt Kathy allowed me to play the 1st Madonna album in the car. Nobody complained and it was at a time in my life where Heavy Metal was becoming an important thing.
I even discovered who IRON MAIDEN was while watching CLASSIC ALBUMS "NUMBER OF THE BEAST"
I went back to New Zealand in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 for various events. My mothers 60th Birthday, my Uncle 50th Birthday, my cousin Erins wedding and some fucked up 27 cousin reunion that was inspired by a speech I gave at my cousin Erin's wedding about how Cousins can be supportive of each other, even when we don't see each other over long periods of time.
At everyone of these reunions my Aunt Kathy was nothing more but a BITCH to me and everyone else who attend. She has always been the jerk of the family. 2011 reunion was a piece of shit because some wanker cousins of mine made some fucked up comments about me and my Aunties Husband went all APe shit at me for no appart reason.
I have never really seen much of New Zealand myself. I have been to Auckland, Palmerston North and Napier. If my memory serves me right I might have gone to the South Island at age 2 or 5.
I have always hated visiting New Zealand. Especially how fucking paranoid their Customs Officers are. They are the only prick country out of 193 UN members that ask people to list every country they have been to in the last 30 days. There is no EXIT stamp System in New Zealand. But they fucking criticised me in 2010 why I only spent 5 days in New Zealand.
I have proudly hurled abusive against New Zealand Customs. I told them their country is a paranoid state and its none of your business what I did for 5 days. They all claim this stupid questioning is all about RISK ASSESEMENT.
As a person born in Australia I have always had a huge hatred towards anything New Zealand. I'm just glad I was born in the larger island!
I used to have a fear of New Zealand woman untill I started hanging out with a New Zealand cougar between 2013-2016. Boy that New Zealand GILF helped cure me of delayed Ejaculation, aneixty about sex and erectile dysfunciton.
Come 2012 was a really shit year for me:
**I went to my NZ cousin wedding in Sydney (when I didn't feel like going)
* I backstabbed my NZ cousin John in London because he was a tool who wasn't supportive of me moving to the UK and he was going to marry a woman called Bronwen (who i fucking hated)
* my wonderful Uncle Brian died in Napier in July 2012
*after my big travels to Iran, India, Germany, Turkey, South East Asia. Nobody in my New Zealand family wrote back to me or even cared about what I did!
I personally destroyed every single photo I had ever taken in New Zealand in October 2012. the last thing I ever said to my Tool cousin John in London is that I won't ever be attend any stupid reunions ever again and I will never go back to New Zealand.
In the years that followed I really did have a huge fall out with some New Zealand family members. I have been able to patch up things since then. But there is just one Aunt Kathy and allot of cousin that I won't communicate to.
As you may have read in previous blogs post that in November 2014 my Aunt Cecily died and It didn't affect me.
After my Aunt Cecily Died I just continued on with my life. I went to Timor, Brunei, Papua New Guinea, moved to London, travelled on the Trans Siberian, slept with over 30 women and I became an independant man who doesn't live with his Mum.
So back in December 2011 I had been on 15 nations. 6 years after my last shitty trip to New Zealand, I have been on another 50 nations, making my tally of 65 nations. So in the 50 nations that I have been to since I was last in New Zealand. I am proud to say that all 50 of them are far better than New Zealand.
I am talking about: IRAN, INDIA, NEPAL, BULGARIA, TIMOR LESTE, PAPUA NEW GUINEA, SERBIA, POLAND, MYANMAR, LAOS, CAMBODIA, RUSSIAN FEDERATION, SWEDEN, ESTONIA, DENMARK, GEORGIA, ARMENIA, KAZAKHSTAN, KYRSGYSTAN, MALTA, NORWAY, VATICAN CITY AND BELARUS
All of these countries I just listed are better than New Zealand, these countries are not fucking paranoid imperialist states and best of all they don't have CUNTS working at the borders.
I would rather give a Kazakh army guy (guarding the border with Kryzgystan) 50 bucks to get my passport back than to explains to some white New Zealander DUMBSHIT why I only spent 5 fucking days in their paranoid imperailist state!
I am proud to say that I have spent a good 6 years away from New Zealand. I had a good 15 years away from New Zealand (1991-2006) So I really don't think I will return to New Zealand untill 2026. When that year comes it will have been 15 years since I was last in that shithole.
So here is my advice to anyone out there.
DO NOT VISIT AUSTRALIA AND DO NOT VISIT NEW ZEALAND
Go to Papua New Guinea
Go to Timor Letse
Go to Indonesia
Go to Sololom Islands
Go to Fiji
Go to Samoa
Go to Tonga
Go to Nauru
Go to Tuvalu
Go to Kiribati
Go to these countries and go put some money in these poor peoples pockets. They deserve your money more than scumbag imperialists in Australia and New Zealand
So that is why you will not be reading any reports of me jumping off the Auckland Sky Tower or bungy off the Auckland Harbour Bridges. All my New Zeland photos were destroyed in 2012 and that was the best thing I ever did
