Pretty shitty stuff article as always. Basically they were booked to play by the uni and this old guy came up as they started and demanded that they stop immediately. They continued to play and he started attacking the band, shoving them and pulling out their leads out. I went over and ushered him away from the band and told him if he works for the uni he probably shouldn't attack people because he might get fired. He told me I was "A silly little boy" and that he "wasn't worried about getting fired because he had more money than me" and went away saying he was calling the cops.
Pretty ridiculous situation, not really news worthy but we all had a good laugh about it after.

More people representing that particular segment of society need dildos/shit thrown at them and to be subjected to mockery and humiliation on an escalating scale. They're everything that is wrong with society.

Actually, he looks a bit like Doc Brown from Back To The Future. Perhaps he was doing the right thing after all because unbeknown to us one of the Yung Nat$ is actually Biff Tannen and if this performance was allowed to go ahead would have sent all of reality spewing into an alternate 1985.

Wish I'd been on campus yesterday, ha. This guy is clearly a cock. That said, there were summer school exams on at the time yeah? At times, planning/timing around events like this seems a bit fucked, it's bad enough with all the construction shit people are having to put up with at the moment.

That's what people were saying, my friend checked out the exam schedule and apparently there wasn't actually any exams happening at that specific time. Can't confirm that or anything though.

Yeah for sure, could be just a convenient excuse. Good work on bringing the lols either way!

I just wish they'd finish this drainage/landscaping work already... fucking driving me insane.

Looks a little like Stephen La Roach, a crazy we had many run-ins with at Otago in the '90s :lol:

Did he rant on about how he singled handily saved Estonia from communism?
