Hottest 100 of all time + Footprints!
It's been a little while since we've had anything to report, as we've all been off doing our own thing, spending time with the family, preparing new business ventures and travelling the world. However, we do have a few 'Finger-related news pieces we'd like to share with you.
Firstly, you might have heard that Triple J are currently searching for their Hottest 100 Australian Albums Of All Time. If you have a second to vote for Odyssey Number Five (or any of our other albums, if you'd like to), we'd be really grateful. Voting closes in 4 days, so hurry!
To reward you for your time, Triple J is offering a pretty mega prize - the Green and Gold Ticket! This will get you and a friend in to every Triple J-supported Australian artist show for 12 months!
In other news, we thought you might be interested to know that later this year we'll be releasing the first every authorised Powderfinger biography. "Footprints" is currently being written by journalist and all-round nice guy Dino Scatena, who has been interviewing us, our families and our support teams for months now. We're excited to read the final copy!
"Footprints" will also be available in a limited edition hardback cover which will also contain Volumes 1 and 2 of our Greatest Hits. Yes, that means that there's a volume 2 on the way! More info to come in the next few months.
In the meantime, we hope you're all swell and we'll be in touch again soon.

Well, fellas, let me try to clear up some mipioncestcons here. First, I am against the war in Iraq, always have been. My point is that had Bush and the neo-cons 'stayed the course' in Afghanistan, rather than invading a country that was a bulwark against terrorism and had nothing to do with the attacks on 9/11, we might have dismantled Al Queda, killed Bin Fergotten and all of our troops would be home now.Like you guys, it's no concern of mine whether or not some other country enjoys democracy. My concern is whether or not we here in the US of A enjoy democracy. Bush has only helped our enenmies grow stronger by providing a training ground and rallying point for them in Iraq. Do I still think Bin Laden must die? Abso-fucking-lutely. After that, who cares? AS far as the phoney war on terror goes, look deeper, who's really winning there? KBR, Haliburton, Blackwater, etc. There is not now, nor has there ever been a plan to 'win' in Iraq. The profit is in the 'treatment', not the 'cure'. And as far as Obama getting us out like Nixon got us out of Vietnam, who gives a shit as long as we're out. We can train a soldier, sailor, airman or Marine in 10 fucking weeks and send him/her into combat. They have had 6 years to train the Iraqi's to defend their own country and they still claim the Iraqi's arent't ready to 'stand up'! Tuff shit! Besides, we have already accomplished the mission as defined by Bush. No WMD's, Saddam gone. Free elections. New Constitution. Time to come home.I am also going to vote for Obama. I have no reservations about it, in fact I actively promote his candidacy on my own site. As a Union guy, my main concern is creating and keeping jobs. I want a government that is more responsive to Main Street than Wall Street.So, we agree on some things and disagree on others, isn't that what America is supposed to be about?The important thing is we all agree on the most important thing, that it is time for a change and Obama is the man to bring that change to America.d.
