Welcome to the official Moblog for Maximo Park - the Maximoblog.

This is where the band post photos of whatever takes their fancy that they think might be of interest to the wider public, from the mundane (backstage) to the spectacular (Archis' hair).

But they are not the only ones, as this Maximoblog is open to you!

Anyone who wants to send in a photo, whatever they feel relevant, we would love to see. The more the merrier, the more creative the better.

Get involved!

clara says:

This is a lovely photo.Thank you.
Very professional.

12th Sep 2006, 09:32

clara says:

Paul looks very handsome in it.

12th Sep 2006, 09:32

Bound says:

Hey...that's the same stuff he wore in Edinburgh, isn't it? Paisley ties rock nuts.

12th Sep 2006, 09:38

clara says:

Morning Bound-yes it is the same as the Edinburgh gear.I like the dark grey jumper.

12th Sep 2006, 09:40

clara says:

It's not a Paisley tie,it looks like a William Morris pattern to me.

12th Sep 2006, 09:42

Bound says:

I decided I don't like that cerise tee anymore...now I've realised who The Blood Arm are...

12th Sep 2006, 09:42

Bound says:

Have nothing round your neck that you don't know to be useful or believe to be beautiful. Apologies to Morris.

12th Sep 2006, 09:44

clara says:

Ha ha-very good!Why,who are the Blood Arm then?

12th Sep 2006, 09:48

clara says:

And that tie should be useful for something,I guess(waits for Bound's reply)

12th Sep 2006, 09:49

clara says:

Yes I have heard of that William Morris quote.I visited his house a few years ago,very interesting.

12th Sep 2006, 09:56

clara says:

Better go now.See you later.

12th Sep 2006, 10:08

hella says:

aww, so pretty! sigh.

12th Sep 2006, 11:28

hella says:

[i apologize for the "aww" part in my comment. sometimes i just can't help by the sight of the guy :P]

12th Sep 2006, 11:28

Bound says:

I had a massive loss of faith and decided Paul wasn't my hero for about three hours today. I put it down to the fact that I have a high temperature, and after reading lots of Adrian Mole and sleeping I feel renewed again. I guess you have to make exceptions for your heroes. Like the way I let Beck off for being a Scientologist, just 'cos he's a hero. No-one needs to know this...I just felt a bit alone, I s'pose.

12th Sep 2006, 16:14

K. says:

after that gig I love them even more.

12th Sep 2006, 16:29

Bound says:

I'm sure I'll be back to normal after Brixton, K, and I'm glad you enjoyed the show. They are always awesome live, it seems. My malaise is essentially based around my personal beliefs about trilbies, and I'm sure I'll get over it. :)

12th Sep 2006, 16:34

clara says:

Adrian Mole???How extraordinary.
And Beck copies Paul's trilby look,if anyone's noticed,but it doesn't suit him.
Trilbies are great!I've seen loads of people in the street wearing them lately.

12th Sep 2006, 19:11

Bound says:

@Clara: I love YOUR trilby.X
I make exceptions for both you and Paul. And Beck. And yes, it's scary quite how much I identify with the exploits of a 15 year old boy, written by a middle aged woman... Hmm.

12th Sep 2006, 19:23

clara says:

Well Bound,it's what we've come to expect of you.I fear for your sanity at times.

I jest!!

12th Sep 2006, 20:05

clara says:

Maybe you should write a book.

12th Sep 2006, 20:08

Bound says:

No, don't worry, it's nice to know I'm not the only one fearing for it...

12th Sep 2006, 20:08

Bound says:

Re: 20.08...I don't really feel like writing much at the mo. I'm sure inspirado will come upon me again soon.

12th Sep 2006, 20:09

clara says:

I think we're all a little doolally in our own way.....

12th Sep 2006, 20:10

Bound says:

I guess. I'm just getting gradually more and more silly in the advent of October the 6th. I'm going to be no use to anyone by the time October comes...

12th Sep 2006, 20:11

clara says:

Well,that's par for the course with Maximo fans.Can you cope at the show?that's the question.

12th Sep 2006, 20:14

Bound says:

I am going to be the very picture of decorum and maturity. :)

12th Sep 2006, 20:17

clara says:

Ahhhhhhhthat's what we like to hear.
I'll hold you to that then.

12th Sep 2006, 20:19

clara says:

I'm waiting for some lovely new photos of the band on here,if Paolo has found the phone charger-are you?

12th Sep 2006, 20:22

clara says:

(Bound's gone back to bed-she hasn't been well,)

12th Sep 2006, 20:23

Bound says:

Sorry, Fullmetal Alchemist was on. I'm here...really, I am.

12th Sep 2006, 20:59

clara says:

What on earth's that about?


Someone threw themselves under a train at Gloucester Rd. tube station today....just thought I'd lelet you know.

12th Sep 2006, 21:28

Bound says:

Oh, my God. That's awful.

12th Sep 2006, 21:35

Bound says:

Dude...I am going to bed now. Night night.

12th Sep 2006, 21:39

clara says:

Night night,Bound.Sleep comfortably and I hope you feel better.

12th Sep 2006, 21:42

hella says:

@bound: are you online by any chance?!

13th Sep 2006, 18:45

Bound says:

Umm...I am now! Half an hour later...

13th Sep 2006, 19:17

hella says:

you're killing me, i hope you know that.. ;)
x

13th Sep 2006, 19:36

Bound says:

Dude, I am so sorry...I didn't mean to get you so worked up! Did you get my second mail? I'm fighting the seller at present...I thought it was for definite, I wouldn't have mentioned it otherwise. I will do my level best for you though. X

13th Sep 2006, 19:40

hella says:

no no, i'm just crazy, you see.. yes i did get your second mail, but i didn't want to reply because it would have been another mail of me bothering you with my thoughts and then you probably would have thought "oh my god, she's insane", so i'm going to answer you tomorrow :P

13th Sep 2006, 19:46

Bound says:

I'm on it. I will come through. I will triumph for you, fellow fangirl. I'll keep you posted; good luck tonight! X

13th Sep 2006, 19:48

clara says:

Hi girls,anything I should know about?

13th Sep 2006, 19:48

clara says:

Are you coming over to see the Park,Hella?Is Bound organising something for you?

13th Sep 2006, 19:51

Bound says:

I was a dick. That's old news though... Nah, I hinted that Hella could have one of my spare Brixton tickets...but the seller is still being a spaz. But I will defeat him! He is pure stupidity!

13th Sep 2006, 19:51

hella says:

@clara: ..and i'm slightly[!] freaking out about the "hint".

13th Sep 2006, 19:53

clara says:

What's the seller doing then?

13th Sep 2006, 19:55

Bound says:

@Hella: Duuude...*still grovelling* I didn't mean to get your hopes up unfairly! When I said it I thought it was a certainty. AND I WILL MAKE IT SO!!! I swear on my fangirl love for Paul!!

13th Sep 2006, 19:55

Bound says:

@Clara: Just being a prannett, still. Nikki on the forum was lovely to deal with... but this guy... useless. 99.4% positive feedback my arse...

13th Sep 2006, 19:56

clara says:

Hella,can you get the airfare over here to see the Park?

13th Sep 2006, 19:56

clara says:

What's the seller's name,Bound?I'll look him up.

13th Sep 2006, 19:57

hella says:

@bound: nah, it's alright .. i'm just a bit confused. what if it actually worked out? what if i can't afford the flight anymore then? what if i could actually go there with you? aah. aaaah.

13th Sep 2006, 20:00

hella says:

@clara: yes, i can.. i found a cheap flight actually :) [i just don't know how long it's going to stay that way]

13th Sep 2006, 20:01

Bound says:

@Clara: I don't want to cause trouble... perhaps he'll give me back feedback if I bad-mouth him elsewhere on the net. Can I mail you his details? :)
@Hella: AAARRGHHH! Now I'm a terrible person. I was trying to do a nice thing and it all went pear shaped. AAAARGH! I'm so sorry! This is the sort of crap that happens to me ALL THE TIME, and now I've infected your life with my crummy luck. I am striving to fulfil my offer to you...

13th Sep 2006, 20:06

clara says:

Where will you stay?

13th Sep 2006, 20:06

clara says:

@bound-yes,mail them if you want.
We'll see if we can get a ticket to Hella,shall we?

13th Sep 2006, 20:09

hella says:

@bound: why do YOU feel bad? xD i'm just panicking and infecting you with it, sorry!
@clara: biggest problem [to come]..

13th Sep 2006, 20:09

clara says:

Need to get the ticket sorted first though.

13th Sep 2006, 20:12

hella says:

yes of course, i'm well aware of that. i have to think about the rest too, though.. ;)

13th Sep 2006, 20:15

clara says:

OK Bound,I got your email.Will let you know in a mo.

13th Sep 2006, 20:17

clara says:

@Bound-can't find that reference name.Can you check again and mail me?

13th Sep 2006, 20:20

Bound says:

@Hella: No, no, I feel I got your hopes up unfairly. I am now on a mission.

13th Sep 2006, 20:21

Bound says:

@Clara: AAARRGH I'm a dinlo. Rectifing situation: NOW.

13th Sep 2006, 20:23

clara says:

OK

13th Sep 2006, 20:25

hella says:

@bound: see what you started with sending me your little tale :P it's just too hard for me being a fangirl, haha! it's all paul's fault.

13th Sep 2006, 20:26

clara says:

Aw Hella,don't blame Paul.
@Bound-still nothing found with that second reference.

13th Sep 2006, 20:29

Bound says:

I just scrolled up to the top of the screen and thought: 'All this panic just to see you, y'smug git...' I do not let people down, my dear. If I have to buy some more...I bloody well will. I have the honour of a samurai. You go out, and leave the whole thing to me. And Clara. For I am not capable of much alone..

13th Sep 2006, 20:29

clara says:

What is the correct reference,Bound?

13th Sep 2006, 20:33

hella says:

yeah, he's not even aware of all the trouble he's causing ;)
oh god, now clara's getting involved too.. i'm sorry guys! xxx

13th Sep 2006, 20:35

clara says:

It's no good blaming Paul,he's not involved with ticket sales!!

13th Sep 2006, 20:35

Bound says:

@Clara: Well...he should be *pouts*
...yeah, I know. You're right. I'm calm. All will be solved. @Hella: And don't you dare apologise, young lady - I got you into this mess, and I'll get you out.

13th Sep 2006, 20:37

clara says:

Mail me the transaction number,Bound,if you will-should find it from that.

13th Sep 2006, 20:38

Bound says:

Aye aye. Operation Get Hella to Brixton continues apace.

13th Sep 2006, 20:39

hella says:

@clara: i'm not blaming him because of the tickets, it's just that because of him i'm so desperately hoping for the whole thing to work out, that's why.. ;)
@bound: yeah i know.. still! you're way too nice to me.

13th Sep 2006, 20:42

Bound says:

I'm not...I'm a flippin' tease. :(

13th Sep 2006, 20:46

hella says:

@bound: now don't YOU dare contradicting me. if i say so, i mean it.

13th Sep 2006, 20:48

Bound says:

@Hella: Sorry!

13th Sep 2006, 20:49

clara says:

OK Bound-received the info.Looking into it now.
@Hella-yes I know you're not blaming him-he's worth it, isn't he?

13th Sep 2006, 20:51

Bound says:

Cheers Cap'n. We will make this happen.

13th Sep 2006, 20:52

hella says:

@bound: maybe we should stop apologising to each other - at least for tonight? :)
@clara: oh yes..

13th Sep 2006, 20:53

Bound says:

@Hella: It's a deal...I still feel like an absolute shit, though. X

13th Sep 2006, 20:55

clara says:

My pleasure,bosun's mate.

Wait a few minutes and see what I can come up with.

13th Sep 2006, 20:55

clara says:

There's a storm happening here and it's pouring with rain-very muggy.

13th Sep 2006, 20:56

hella says:

@bound: alright. me too! great! x

13th Sep 2006, 20:57

Bound says:

@Clara: Yes... prophetic fallacy perhaps? No, I just want everything to be symbollic of something, I guess.

13th Sep 2006, 20:59

clara says:

Nearly there

13th Sep 2006, 21:13

clara says:

OK Bound-have looked at the seller's page and seen the position.It seems really that you'd have to call him on the number there and ask him what's happening with your tickets.There's no other way round it and he won't want bad feedback.

13th Sep 2006, 21:25

Bound says:

Am I being a silly? I couldn't see a number on there.

13th Sep 2006, 21:26

clara says:

Er........Bound,there's a mobile number to the RIGHT of 3" high blue letters on the seller's page.
The mobile number is printed above the email address.

13th Sep 2006, 21:35

clara says:

Ho hum............

13th Sep 2006, 21:44

Bound says:

Well, there's no need to be like that...

13th Sep 2006, 21:45

Bound says:

I'm obviously stupid, 'cos I must be on the wrong page, or something... I'm just a blithering idiot.

13th Sep 2006, 21:47

clara says:

Did you find the number?No offence meant!

13th Sep 2006, 21:47

clara says:

If you type the long reference number into the homepage where it says "Welcome To Ebay" where it says "search",then scroll down then the no. should be there.

13th Sep 2006, 21:49

Bound says:

It's fine, I'm just really pissed off now, and your comment caught me at a bad time...I'm concerned about stitching up a friend, and not really in the mood for sarcasm.

13th Sep 2006, 21:49

Bound says:

I had to look at some stupid tickets for the Ashes in the end to get his number.
Thanks.

13th Sep 2006, 21:50

clara says:

Good stuff.
I must away now - good luck with the phoning, Bound.
Sorry I can't stay on any longer.
Night, Hella!

13th Sep 2006, 21:56

Bound says:

@Hella: Yeah hon, I'll let you know tomorrow how it goes. You will go to the ball...
@Clara: Cheers for the help, love. You've been a dear, and I've been a bit ratty. All will be well.

13th Sep 2006, 21:57

clara says:

OK Bound,pet-see you & Hella tomorrow.Sleep tight!

13th Sep 2006, 22:00

clara says:

Who's online tonight?

14th Sep 2006, 19:16

clara says:

Nobody,by the look of it.

14th Sep 2006, 20:04

clara says:

OK this is the Maximo Park Travel Agency Service.

Hella and Polly,are you online?

15th Sep 2006, 18:45

clara says:

If you read this Paul,remember that we,your fans, do the best we can to get to the Park's shows and it's sometimes extremely hard to get tickets to do so,so we'd appreciate you realising that we have a hard time getting said tickets.
Some of us aren't exactly flush,and Ebay isn't the easiest setup to deal with.
Thanks!!

15th Sep 2006, 18:53

clara says:

And,referring to the Diary entry,we were looking forward to an account of the Park's show in Poland,but there wasn't one.

15th Sep 2006, 18:54

Bound says:

Don't be mean, Clar. It's possible he wasn't taking the pee...maybe there'll be some stuff about Poland soon...? I wonder what the potatoes were for though. Maybe he was having mash...mmm, mash.

15th Sep 2006, 18:58

clara says:

I'm not mean,Bound. I think it's cheeky.

15th Sep 2006, 19:01

clara says:

We worked very hard trying to get a ticket together,and I'm unimpressed.

15th Sep 2006, 19:02

Bound says:

Yeah. He's a cheeky chappy. :) He's just being a little flippant I guess. You still love him, though, right? :)
Have you seen those illustrations? They're pretty awesome.

15th Sep 2006, 19:04

Bound says:

He might not have even been talking about that, hon!... and anyway, if he was, he was probably a little abashed that people put so much obsessive effort in to seeing the band! And possibly quite touched? Who the heck knows.

15th Sep 2006, 19:06

clara says:

It's up to the person to contact the moderator on here,if they feel that the Blog's being too dominated by a few people.

15th Sep 2006, 19:08

clara says:

I call it cheeky.Tickets=travel agencies.

No I haven't seen the illustrations.

15th Sep 2006, 19:11

Bound says:

Okay, love... please don't take things like that to heart.

15th Sep 2006, 19:15

clara says:

I see your point,Bound.However maybe we were out of order on here with the ticket thing,if so,I feel the moderators should be perhaps watching out more.

15th Sep 2006, 19:19

clara says:

We should have been warned by them about using the Blog as a ticket exchange,then comments like that wouldn't have been necessary.

15th Sep 2006, 19:22

Bound says:

Possibly. I dunno. It's all positive, and Park-related though, isn't it? At least we're not trying to sell viagra or something. Hmm...perhaps we do scare people off. And on that note, I'll catch ya later. x

15th Sep 2006, 19:22

clara says:

Are the moderators online now?

15th Sep 2006, 19:23

clara says:

If so,there won't be any further ticket sales on here,and my apologies if it was going down the wrong road.~
@Bound-some ads have tried to sell Viagra on here!!

15th Sep 2006, 19:28

clara says:

(Bound's been frightened off,now.)
See you later,Bound x

15th Sep 2006, 19:37

zagafeur(canedgraffiti-at-gmail-dot-com) says:

Hello girls. Are you all coming to Brixton then?

The line parties I have been speaking about, if you remember, are still most certainly on. I'd love for you three to make it, but don't think I'd be allowed to clog up this place by explaining about it all, so if you wanna chuck me an email and I'll give you details. Brixton is set to be one of the best days of the year if you hang by me. Remember people - no other gig this year will have cake. ;)
