  1. WELCOME TO THE AUSTRALIAN THREAD: PARTY TWENTY FOUR!!! The Aussie Mikamites official logo: The Aussie Mikamites are proudly sponsored by: MIKACARD New Mikamites sponsored by Woolies. Team Mascot and hero: RAFFA Theme song: Destiny’s Childs “Survivor” Welcome to our home. Please... come in... As you walk through the hallways you will see that the walls are adorned with various photos of Mika, Mikamite family photos and various other paraphernalia. We take pride in our extensive Mika collection. SITTING/ENTERTAINING ROOM We have a lovely seating and entertainment area equipped with butterfly lounges and beanbags, where you can sit, relax and have a chat with friends. GLITTER ROOM This room is filled with glitter (shot from two large glitter cannons). This room is designed specifically for those who simply wish to roll around in glitter. Remember: Glitter makes everything better. Bubbles provided by Happikali’s goat. THE POOL ROOM Like every good Aussie household, we have a Pool Room. However, since we are particularly thpethial... we have an actual pool table (the deluxe Prince model). HEALING CENTRE The Healing & Recuperation Centre is for those not feeling well. In this sanctuary they may get much needed rest. Healing services are available and provided by the Aussie Medicine Woman who has a vast array of healing substances. These include scorpion and snake venom; eye of koala; tooth of croc. Other specimens and medicines are strictly top secret. THE CAT PEE CORNER Those who are misbehaving will be banished to the cat pee corner for an indefinite period. THE PADDED ROOM As the name suggests, this is a special built, custom made padded room which is used in extreme situations only. THE DUNGEON Details of the contents and the exact reason for the dungeon have never been revealed. There have been various sightings of certain persons enclosed in the dungeon, but who can say whether this is fact or fiction? UNDERGROUND TUNNEL Leads directly to the Butterfly Bar and back. For those who wish to make a more interesting entrance. Because doors are so boring. HAPPIKALI’S VERANDAH As you walk outside you will find Happikali’s verandah (with a view to the Australian bush). This is THE place to be. Many an excellent night has been had on the verandah. This is officially the number one best gig site in Australia. Use of the poles is permitted on special occasions only. Rumour has it Mika will play an exclusive gig here during his tour of Oz. You will see parked in the driveway a bright pink bus with one large Converse Hi-Top shoe attached to it’s roof. This bus is the Mikamites mode of transport, and will be used during the Aussie Mikamites Dream Tour of Oz. ANIMALS: MRS. BERYL GERANIUM Happikali’s goat. A star in her own right. Can often be seen touring the world with Mika. Has her own manager. Is famous for making bubbles using her rear end. Looks FAB in a pair of braces. SPARKLES Camel Extraordinaire (and a bit of a princess). Beloved pet and best friend of Rainbow Sky. His hump is an esky for storing beer and other beverages. Dreams of being a movie star one day. Has modelled with Hugh Jackman, and starred in short film Jewel Of The Sahara with Gerard Butler. Is available for rides at parties. Please phone Rainbow Sky for details. Beware of bringing other animals onto the property. Happikali may string them up without notice and use them for her jewellery making business. There are two adjoining restaurants on our property: MIKA HUT Where the only thing on the menu is diet coke and a pizza please. SUBWAY Visit Subway for a never-ending supply of Mika cookies. Special points are awarded to those who film their purchases and put their video on You Tube. THE LIST AUSSIE MIKAMITES: #1. Rainbow Sky #2. happikali #3. FlamingoCrumbles #4. Dangerous Kat #5.

  13. Bernard Zuel September 18, 2009 - 3:19PM MIKA PENNIMAN is tall and slender, with limbs like independent machines that fold and unfold themselves. In a reverse of the usual order, he is larger in person than he appears on stage, where his hyperactivity, enthusiasm for every aspect of being a pop star and penchant for almost cartoonish colours give the 25-year-old a childlike quality. It's something only enhanced by the DayGlo melodies and unabashed bounce of his first hits, Grace Kelly and the even more Romper Room-ish Lollipop. The ubiquity of these tracks made 2007 a Mika (pronounced mee-ka) year, with some 6 million albums sold and progressively larger and more elaborate concerts, from Sydney to Paris. Today his narrow hips are holding up a pair of orange jeans worn with bright white trainers and his big, brown eyes stare back intently beneath a shock of wavy brown hair. Like his music, which freely recalls the 1970s, '80s and sometimes a generation or two earlier, you can't quite pin him down. The accent is mostly English, though there's often a hint of something continental there. The face is indeterminately Mediterranean, while he can switch from American confidence to English diffidence within a sentence. And, if required, he could answer all questions in fluent French. That melange is crucial to the make-up of Mika Penniman, part-Lebanese, part-American and almost wholly the perennial outsider. Born in Lebanon as one of five children, he spent the early part of his childhood in France before the collapse of his father's business led the family to move to London much worse off. "I feel boundary-less," he says. "There is a part of me that wishes I had come from one particular place but then again that's probably why I do music. I travel around the world; I don't really live anywhere in particular. Music attracts people who don't know where they belong, is what I'm saying." It's certainly true in an American context. It's very common to find American musicians who come from a military background, constantly moving through their childhood as their parents shifted from base to base. They become the kind of people who either make friends very easily or retreat into their music as an alternative to making friends, becoming emotionally self-sufficient. "That self-sufficiency is a good way to put it,” Penniman says. “And also, you add a family into that and it explains a lot of the reasons why I work with my family." They are the only ones he trusts? "Exactly. I have a few friends that I can trust but they are kind of adopted family." Bullied at school to the point where he all but withdrew into himself, and home-schooled for a while, he is simultaneously open and reluctant to trust easily, full of grand plans but insistent that his family, which he calls "the constant" of his peripatetic life, remains around him. One sister helps him design his artwork and stage shows and another sister is his stylist, while his mother still makes many of his stage clothes. They all live in a large home in central London and he seems in no hurry to move out or move on. Indeed, it is while talking about the family that Penniman is at his most Lebanese. "My household is most definitely a Lebanese one. It's full of Lebanese people, full of food and that kind of atmosphere, that happy-sad thing that I think has found its way into what I do musically," he says. "It's very much a Lebanese trait. We're crying and then we are laughing two seconds later or we are dancing on top of tables while things are going down around us. It's that kind of survival instinct." The night before, at a playback of tracks from his second album, The Boy Who Knew Too Much, Penniman described a new song called Rain as "a happy-sad disco song”, both upbeat and troubled. It's typical of an album that continues the vibrant melodies and beaming exterior but harbours within a number of songs more complicated feelings whose roots go back to some of his darkest times. If Life in Cartoon Motion was about his childhood, both musically and lyrically, then this new one focuses on his teenage years. And as such it brings up one of the vulnerable sides of a man who affects an impervious-to-carping attitude that is never wholly believable. While sometimes he can brush off the regular questions about his sexuality – he cites both Prince and David Bowie as inspirations because they “played with gender to the point of confusion” – and laugh about the media's obsession with the topic, he has spoken before about how his otherness as a teenager proved difficult. “The sexuality thing is really important at that point because you realise it's part of your personality,” he told The Guardian. “And it brings on a terrific sense of opportunity but it also adds to the roller-coaster, the fragility of those years.” Today he says one of the best things about pop music as an adult is the freedom to shape his own sexual identity. “Although I won't label myself, I certainly embrace openness and I think there's a lot of people my age who feel exactly like I do." Given all that, adolescence would have been hard enough but he says the challenges were magnified by not having the solidity of roots in his new home. "We lost our furniture to debt collectors. We went back to square zero. We moved to London, stayed in a B&B for about eight months, started up again, finding odd jobs as a family to get through. Those were the things that really upset us as we were kids, really big issues like money.” The money they had was spent on education. Penniman attended the upmarket Westminster School, a decision driven by their mother, who was just as focused on driving her children to achieve. It was discipline at home and his outsider status at school that put him on the songwriting path. "It could have ended up going towards drinking but it ended up in writing songs. Which is lucky, more than anything." He could have ended up being someone who internalised everything – the escapist rather than the doer. "I was a coward because I was bullied and every time I tried to be stronger, I was knocked down again, so I gave up,” Penniman says. “I didn't give up totally, just focused all my attention on music. If I can't say something to someone's face, I can say it in a song and if I can make it catchy then it will stick in their head before they even know what it's about. That was my mentality." There's a hint of revenge against his doubters in these comments, which is at odds with his genial manner. It also comes out when the topic of how he can polarise opinion, and how he is happy to do so, arises. Was he thinking, then and now: “I will show them”? "Yes. Always,” he says firmly, his gaze unwavering. “I'm worth something. That's what Golden [the first song on the new album with the line "we are not what you think we are/we are golden”] is about." For all the reconstruction of classic pop, Penniman makes little effort to confine his lyrics to the standard pop generalisations, freely offering the bitter as well as positive pills amid these bright, bouncing tunes. "That's exactly it, the combination of brutal honesty or a quite painful lyric with this empowering music, populist music. Shock horror, it's actually catchy, it doesn't mind being stuck in someone's head,” he says mockingly. “It's doing that on purpose. That's why I think it's fascinating and whether it is taken seriously or not, who gives a ****? “It's that Noel Coward mentality. I'd rather be absolutely reviled or totally adored, nothing in between. I'll do everything to provoke that and I do it almost instinctively. It's another form of 'f--- you' to the world." The Boy Who Knew Too Much is out now. http://www.smh.com.au/news/entertainment/music/id-rather-be-absolutely-reviled-or-totally-adored-nothing-inbetween/2009/09/18/1253208992126.html?page=fullpage#contentSwap1
  14. WE HAVE FINISHED THE BOOK AND IT WILL BE GIVEN TO MIKA ON THE 8TH OF JUNE 2009. IF YOU'D LIKE TO SEE THE FINISHED PRODUCT, PLEASE CLICK HERE. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Or, the "Mika, get your arse to the untoured regions!" campaign! ABOUT THE BOOK: As some of you are aware, I started the MIKAustralia petition, and Oakie Doke thought it was a good idea to should join forces with all of Asia and New Zealand to try and get Mika to tour the region... cause if he tours one country, he'll likely do the whole area, right? Anyway, this is what we will be doing: # Each country that is involved will be writing some interesting information about their country, and the cities that they would like Mika to tour in. # A petition with the username and real name of each person that is involved, as well as a personal message for Mika. Other MFCers that think Mika should come to the region may also put their name down and leave a personal message. # Any photoshopped pictures of Mika by people in the region # Short DVD featuring videos people have made - you can make a video with film clips using Mika's songs, or a short message if you like... if you want to rewrite one of his song and sing it, go for it! As long as the video isn't too long, I'll see if I can include it... (this may not be included) # A section featuring where the album and singles have charted in each country The countries involved so far are: - Australia - New Zealand - Japan - Hong Kong - Taiwan - Singapore The people who are involved are: JAPAN - tomomi - Blue Sky (Organiser for Japan) - MIINA AUSTRALIA - nico_collard (The ideas person and organiser for NSW) - Oakie Doke (Organiser for WA) - Tanya K (Organiser for Victoria) - Kelzy (VIC) - xx_emily_x (VIC) - chickadee (Organiser for ACT?) - soangel (VIC) - happikali (NSW) - themetalmunchkin (Organiser for Tasmania) - Ju-Ju Lea (Organiser for QLD) - ZoZo the Terrible! (Official head fan girl - NSW) - M!Ka RoX mY sOx (NSW?) - Rainbow Sky (NSW) - SuperTwat (VIC) NEW ZEALAND - RosinaKiwi (Organiser for New Zealand) - Lolliepop_girl - racinghorse83 SINGAPORE - guineverer (Organiser for Singapore) TAIWAN - Mika_baby (Organiser for Taiwan) - 225tintin HONG KONG - Space - huikings (organiser for Hong Kong) MFCERS FROM OTHER COUNTRIES - elanorelle - Fmbm (Official fan girl!) - artsyfartsy17 If you would like to be involved (you don't have to be from one of the Asia-Pacific countries), please PM me or Oakie Doke or post in this thread that you want to help out and we'll find something for you to do... As everyone knows, Mika will be doing concerts in Europe in early June. I have decided that I want to finish it and give it to him at the London gig. PLEASE GIVE ANY INFORMATION OR PICTURES YOU WANT TO INCLUDE IN THE BOOK TO ME (BY EMAIL, PM OR BY AIR MAIL) BY THE TWENTY SIXTH OF MAY... I really need people to give me information as soon as possible so I can get the book done. If you want to sign the petition, the link is here: http://www.mikafanclub.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1727788&posted=1#post1727788
