Want Switchfoot to play a New Zealand gig and screen their new doco/film Fading West? Of course you do! But, YOU HAVE TO VOTE to make it happen.
The last few weeks ever since I got my hands on an old turntable i have developed a new obsession, or maybe I should say I have revitalized an old obsession, VINYL - or records/LP's for those of you who think I'm getting into flooring. I've been hitting opshops and keeping an eye on trademe for any cool vinyl - and in my wanders, I've come across some epic stuff. Who knew you could get Rapture Ruckus: Open Your Eyes on Vinyl, suspiciously this is being sold in Palmie after his recent gig there... maybe a sneaky prize being sold?
Buy it here for $30 (before the 16th of Feb!)
Seeing this retweet from @zacfarro got me quite tempted too i must admit...

Switchfoot have a couple of new vids online today. First is the new music video for "The Original" - has to be seen to be believed...
