Is Collingwood fashionable?

Don’t read any further if your pants have an inclination toward spontaneous combustion.

This new music vid from my wild, oncologist medicine crazy, red and yellow Australian friends, The On Fires, is guaranteed to set your pants on fire and have you dancing around whatever room you’re in at the time. This could be a good thing if you’re alone, but I can’t imagine what the boss would think. Never mind, get the boss to watch it too!

In my case the teacher assistant thought I was a little nuts, but I suspect she’s thought that for years.

The On Fires – Perfect Day

Right now, they’re touring China where they’re playing some monstrous festivals. Due to annoying visa issues I can’t leave Vietnam for a quick flight north to see them. Next time, I hope!

PS – Please don’t ask me what the lyrics are. I never know.
Saigon is not exactly the fashion capital of the world. Riding through the streets gives you the impression that the majority of clothing items were purchased from Target or Woolworths bargain bins, information pills or stolen from the jockey’s change rooms in Flemington or Caulfield. There is not a lot of variety in shape, case design or colour, so the modern, stylish lad or lass has to do something a little different to stand out.

This young lady riding the eternally cool white Vespa (or clone) has opted for quite an extreme approach. She’s managed to find a discarded Collingwood top (I’m sure there are many of those around), and put it to far better use than its previous owner probably did.

She’s had a little tailoring applied to it, and here’s the result.


Quite lovely, wouldn’t you say? Never mind the fact that any right-minded Australian would never be caught dead in such garb. 😉
