We’ve been feeling pretty crappy with everything going on across the pond right now. And like us, you might feel like you want to do something. We want all refugees to feel welcome, and one amazing organisation that works hard to make that happen is Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC). So we’ve just donated $10,000 (on top of our regular donations) to help them provide much needed services for those seeking asylum here in Australia. If you feel like donating too, you can either do it directly through their website, or, if you’d like to donate a box of toilet paper to families setting up home, you can do so below. After all, nothing says welcome like a box of dunny paper. #refugeeswelcome https://au.whogivesacrap.org/products/donate-a-box-of-toilet-paper-to-asrc

As students across Australia head back to school this week, it’s hard to imagine going to school without desks or seats – but for many children around the world, this is the case. A lack of infrastructure in poorer communities can often mean students have to sit on the floor during class, which can be quite uncomfortable for long periods of time. However thanks to the support of people like you, 11 schools across India received 650 sets of desks & benches so these children now have a comfortable place to sit and are able to concentrate on their studies.

Been quite some time, but we ready to send some good vibes your way & to start creating again. Thanks for the constant love and support for real. Here's a little acoustic snippet of an original called "Love you more" that's on our project that we been working on. In the meantime, comment below some songs for us to cover and we'll get it goin!
"There is zero chance that sharia law – as a repressive criminal code used in certain Muslim majority nations – is going to be enshrined in Australia. Zero.
Yet it seems that every Australian Muslim who pokes their head up in public is expected to own, explain and condemn any terrorist act carried out by any extremist Muslim anywhere in the world. The outrage machine demands it, and then that same machine judges if the words are sufficient.
Why isn’t this same outrage applied to Australian Catholics? If we are going on a body count the Catholic clergy has done more harm to more Australians than extremist Muslims. More than 4,000 reports of sexual abuse, God knows how many more are unreported. Innocent Australian children and young people are the victims. Lives have been ruined: suicides and mental illness, broken families, grotesque physical injury.
Or is taking on Australian Catholics hitting just a little too close to home? It’s easier, isn’t it, to pick on the young woman with the scarf on her head, or get upset about two little girls in a hijab, all in the name of making Australia safe.
What brave defenders of freedom, of Australia, you are."
Well that's us done for the day Roosters fans! Thanks for following us and for all your support, we could never do it without you. To leave you, here are the highlights from our EPIC Grand Final win: http://po.st/HNUndZ #Represent #IMAROOSTER #NRLAKL9s

This one really hurts still. I think about you all the time, bud. I know I've said this before, but when I think back to some of the best memories I had early in my career #DaveMirra was in them. This is still a really hard pill to swallow. #RIPMirra #BeADadNotAFad
