    The Chasers did a segment with Australian band Spiderbait. They went into many stores in Melbourne CBD, including the local Org.

    they're in the Org at 2:04. And there's the classic quote - this is the best bloody crowd we've had all day!

    from May 2007

    I think that was a comment from the band, not the org.

    I'm aware of that, I just thought it was amusing. Says a lot about their other audiences that day.

    I went to highschool with all the members of Spiderbait. Kram & Damien were in my year and Janet was one or two years ahead.

    I have the DORKIEST photo of Kram in my collection from our senior dance night. I should post it - he'd die!

    But then again he might post one of me! I had a perm and puffy purple sleeves attached to a purple meringue dress.

    I'm having second thoughts. :nervous:

    That official from the Church who was laughing and degrading -- I think she's in trouble with management.

    They were the only ones shown to call the police too. I know it may have happened elsewhere and not been included, but I doubt it.

    In hindsight, maybe the better quote was "Who said you people were crazy?"

    Who was the fat lump in the org?

    Was it Ivis?

    I don't think so, but maybe. Isn't Ivis taller than that?

    P.S. Careful DS--your MWHs are showing. :)
