Welcome to the world of Maude Garrett

Archive for November, 2010


If I do say so myself…

I got at least… what… 3 feet of air that time~

Project Pose

I recently helped a good friend with her design project. She needed a model. I gave it a go.

The shit I go through for something I believe in

Flashback Bomb

Ahhhh yes. The day that the Aussie papers wrote about my photo bombing escapades. The date was May 20, 2010 – a particularly slow news day.

They linked the column to this blog, racking up a whistle-worthy 5,500 hits.

The best part were the comments. Always one to take the good with the bad, I found these to be hilarious. Special mention to Jack of Brisbane (although my parents, sorry to say, hate you).

    What a disgrace! Her insatiable desire to be noticed has her ruin the photo’s of others and she thinks it acceptable behavior. I hope one day she does it to the wrong person and they give her a severe reprimand or worse. Her need for attention obviously runs in the family, I can remember Peter Garrett would do anything for attention also. The cause never matters as much as the attention.

Recent bombings

Cleo Swimsuit Party @ Ivy

Sorry Nikki, this is the second time I’ve bombed you. It’s your fault for being too good looking. Note the balancing act holding Nikki’s champagne and my water. Multi-tasking at its finest.

Loving the unintentional bomber to the left too – respect.

Gracie Otto (on the left) loves a good bombing. I managed to bomb them twice, the second time I actually grabbed some of the poor girl on the rights hair and sniffed it. To her credit, she did not even turn around to give me a dirty look. Kudos. That could have been a hard one to talk my way out of.

What is Shotgun Cinema?

‘Scuse the hell lag

But enjoy

…Or don’t enjoy. It scares me too.


Gamer Tag Hag

Been playing way more games now that I’ve been a tad under the weather.


My gamer tag is: maudie g

Playing: FABLE III

I love the mash-pad style fighting which involves guns, magic AND swords!

I love the unpredictable and sometimes crude dialogue!

I catch STD’s and get knocked up when I sleep around!


Gamer tag: maudelicious

Playing: Assassins Creed Brotherhood Multiplayer

Kill or be killed. That is what the whole scenario is about. Using a handful of techniques that you can unlock the more experience you gain, try to assassinate your target before you – another players target – gets done for. It’s not just a brutal blood bath with gun spray and snipers, you really need to use your mind on how to use the abilities in the most strategic manner. Do you always have a doppleganger nearby? Or are you all about a quick kill no matter the cost?

Full of suspense.

Giddy up!



Previously I’ve posted up pics about the RSPCA and the great job they do providing love and shelter, treating the abused and rehoming thousands of animals every year. Here is a video – put together by the fabulous Nikki Phillips – to show insight of the great stuff the RSPCA does. I was involved, being an animal lover myself, and had a great day distributing toys to the dogs that call the RSPCA home for what could potentially be months, before finding a permanent home.

The RSPCA is run of generous charities only – it has no government funding whatsoever. Please dig deep and donate to this amazing cause and become a guardian angel, or visit a centre closet to you if and when you decide to bring a pet into your life.

In a nutshell

This is a sneak peek of something huge I’m involved with

My top 5 FUNNIEST Youtube videos

I spend a fair bit of time perusing the glories of the web. Youtube, of course, gets a thrashing.

Therefore I have compiled a top 5 of the funniest youtube videos OUT THERE (imo).

#5 Dave after the Dentist

Ah little Dave, you just got your tooth out at the dentist. What’s that? You were anaesthetised? And you’re out of it? QUICK DAD! GET THE CAMERA!

This is totally preparing the kid for a huge drug-riddled trip.

Best quotes:

“Is this real life?”

“Why is this happening?”

#4 Nintendo 64

I – too – went nuts when Dad brought home a Nintendo 64 in 1996. But nothing like these kids.

The first bit of the clip is the kids insane reaction. The next bit? Well, someone remixed the shit out of it. And that, to me, is so much freaking funnier!

#3 Lady stomping grapes.

2 ladies, in buckets, stomping grapes to win a night at a hotel, on live TV. What could possibly go wrong? Well, how bout this lady stacks it so bad, then makes the worlds funniest pain noises you’ve ever heard. Even Family Guy did a take off on this.

Every time I stub my toe or hurt myself in anyway – these are the noises I make.

WATCH OUT FOR: the  reactions of the show hosts when they cut back to the studio

“Oh boy, I think she’s actually hurt”

# 2 Talking Cat

Animals. They’re everywhere on Youtube. Whether it’s the too-cute-kitties or the dog that can do maths. But the talking ones get me. ESPECIALLY when someone puts subtitles on the video of what the cat sounds like it’s actually saying!

Sure, this isn’t what cats usually sound like, which is what makes this vid so damn good.

#1 Leeroy Jenkins

Ahhh welcome to World of Warcraft. Sure, this video is about 7999247599000 times funnier if you’ve played the game, but I still find myself giggling uncontrollably every time I see it.

THE BEST PARTS of this video are the fact that THIS is what gamers ACTUALLY sound like when playing! Everyone has their microphones on, all plotting and planning to strategically beat the common enemy. Here we have a sizeable group of WoWers about to embark on a huge quest – hence the lead guy going through the plan.

I absolutely love it when he asks: “Can you give a number crunch real quick?” and there is a guy there that A) knows he’s being addressed and B) knows that this means he has to calculate their chances of survival (that is sooo C3PO).

His answer? “32.33 (REPEATING, OF COURSE) percentage of survival”

The response? “Well that’s a whole lot better than we usually do”

Too good.

But yes, it gets better. Leeroy Jenkins is sick of the prep. He’s over it. He wants blood. So, upon yelling his name – he charges in – and shit hits the fan.

Quotes to look out for include:

“Goddamn it Leeroy!”

“Why do you do this shit Leeroy?”

“It’s not my fault”

“Leeroy you are just stupid as hell”

“At least I have chicken”


2Day FM at Night!

Recently I’ve been hitting the airwaves of Sydney with co-host Matty Acton doing nights on 104.1 2Day FM. They’ve been such a hoot! So far we’ve met my sultry (skanky) alter-ego Mandy from London (previously Manchester) who cannot be tricked, scouted for Sydney’s WORST name (shout out to Doogle), chatted about social networking quips (the top 5 Foursquare Fails), and I’ve managed to spray a permanent tan of a dick on Matty’s back.

Ahhhh, radio.

Tune in next week to find out what other tirades and terrors we come up with! 10-12 Midnight Monday – Thursday


Growing up, my family has always rescued dogs. We’ve rescued 6 year old brother and sister poodles called Candy and Thaixon (his name was Tyson but the dog was so scared of life that the name just didn’t seem to fit, so we altered the spelling of it) and 3 year old tibetan spaniel Bella.

Thaixon – RIP – died at 14 (last year)

Bella – still alive and kicking – now in Brisbane aged 12

Recently I supported my friend Nikki Phillips‘s idea to raise awareness for the RSPCA in Yagoona, NSW. They shelter so many different animals, who are there for all different reasons. Thousands of animals that have been abandoned, surrendered and abused are walked, washed, fed and looked after here. It’s because of this fantastic cause that we’re urging people to look deep into their pockets and support such a worthy cause. Become a Guardian Angel for RSPCA and see how your money is helping the thousands of animals that really need it over these next few months.

During the day, we (Nikki, Erin McNaught, April Rose Pengilly, Renee Bargh, Airlie Walsh, Laura Csortan, Erika Heynatz, Lizzy Lovette, Bondi Rescue lifeguards Dean and Andrew and Jonothan Moran) faced the reality that these animals were in. But to make their day special, we provided them with treats, toys, love, walks, pats and even a few photos!

I got my photo taken with little Jimmy, a 6 week old Shi Tzu puppy. Needless to say, I’ve put my hand up to adopt a pooch as soon as possible. There are so many there, that no matter what kind of pet you’re after, you’re sure to find one at the RSPCA. I urge people to NOT purchase puppies from pet stores, as they’re bred illegally in puppy farms under horrendous conditions. Save a life, give these animals the voice that they don’t have.


Peach Bomber

Ahhhh it’s been a while. But I couldn’t resist this one.

At my cousins 21st – I was dressed as Princess Peach. For those wondering – yes, Peach has got it.

THAT movie guy

Everyone loves movies. If you don’t, I don’t even believe you. Because EVERYONE loves movies. How much better is it when there’s someone out there who you know and trust, to deliver you practical, upfront, intriguing reviews on movies with NO bull what so ever!

Luckily I have Marc Fennell.

He’s been doing movie reviews since way back. He’s so on the spot with these reviews, that it’s not until the words come out of his mouth, that I realise I could have totally be thinking that exact thought.

I implore you to seek out his extended knowledge and humour on all things movie-related. Or just like him on this damn page, so help you.
