    Harpies Big Day Out at Lake Taupo!!!

    Post by Hikoi on Mon Feb 08, 2010 10:49 am

    Hey everyone! Just thought I would start off this thread for my blisters! Heres one of their clips/footage from the concert. They had 2 cameras, one was a camera that had excellent quality but small amount of videoing time avaliable, (less than 17 minutes). The other was a video cam which doesnt have as high a quality but more videoing time.

    Hi Stan State fans!!! It’s Gissie here. Got back to Gizzy.. Sunday late avo.

    As Hikoi said, Mum was in hospital and our sis and bro help Mum look after our Dad. They all do an awesome job and are a real blessing of the Lord. I offered to stay behind, but polite,gentle Hikoi says” Let’s face it sis, you’ll be useless!!! Bwah hahaha. That’s our Hikoi! (love ya sis)
    Well, she gave us our orders….

    1. We weren’t to talk during videoing ( and by the way Lily and I –the 2 grey haired paparazzi wonders- have absolutely no idea how to work a video or camera!!lol )
    2. We were only to touch certain buttons on the video(in case we wiped everything- I could see Hikoi groaning inwardly thinking “TECHNO PHOBE AMATEURS! …but we love “winding her up”heehee)
    3.And don’t go right up to the front of the stage because the audio quality may not be as good ( Which, Lily’s hubby took that to mean – Go up the front!!!)
    This is Hikoi's version not Lily's and her hubby! Feel a family dispute a-comin' Grin

    We were on a mission! huyya huyya huyya
    Get footage for our sis and SSFF, or face the consequences from her when we got back.
    What a team we made as we trundled of to Taupo, with Hikoi’s instructions ringing in our ears!! We nearly went the wrong way twice!.. it was like the blind leading the blind!!! sunny LOL..
    We got to Taupo eventually, and after the Loo, it was feed time……..

    More to come.. huyya

    We got video footage and photo’s which we (Weta Digital we definitely are not!!!) are trying to upload but it is taking time.
    Bear with us as we are real newbies but I will post more as they are put up by Hikoi and maybe Lily. God bless

    Morning to you all, Gisray here..thanx for your comments.

    We are uploading as fast as we can, but it's taking 2-3 hrs per video!!! woot woot We did try to render them but the quality was lost with the vid from the videocam!!
    Hikoi and Lily are working on them, cos they want them to be of a good quality for ya'll. My son has helped upload the ones of our camera, which Hikoi has put up for ya's in the meantime. Enjoy....and we'll get back to you.God bless

    Part 2: Dizzy Gizzy meets Umbrella and Man’s World

    Hi…as I said Lily and her hubby and I arrived in Taupo.
    If you haven’t been there before, it is beside a big beautiful lake with a popn of about 20,000. Its gorgeous and green with a river running from the lake, past the Concert site (which is a lovely big park) which leads to the Tourist attraction, the Huka Falls. The weather is beautiful… it is hot, hot, hot!!!
    OK,OK, I know…back to what you really want to hear about. LOL

    We had our feed and went back to the carpark. Lily’s hubby shot of somewhere and she went to the Info center. I , meanwhile went to where the car was parked. As I got near to the car, I could hear singing. It was STAN practising!!!
    So, what did I do?! I went into HIKOI mode. If it was me, I would casually wander over, but cos Hikoi couldn’t come, I knew what she would do!!
    I ran to the car, grabbed the camera, and began to run down the road….FOLLOW THAT SINGING!!!! huyya
    Now, you girls know what it’s like when you got your nice patent red dainty
    sandals on ( I was wearing these and my bro-in-law was wearing my jandals cos we went to a restaurant and the shoes he was wearing, was barefeet!), they are not the easiest things to run in ( sorry, In my mind, I was running fast but in reality…SLLOOOOOOW!!!!!) and they are not user friendly if you hit diff surfaces ( Remember, jandals on wet tiles!!!) happy dance Need I say more!!!
    Well, here’s me, the grey haired paparazzi madwoman, running down the road, turning the camera on, saying “, can u hear that?” ( OH blast, that’s rule no. 1 broken! Rebel, that’s me!) and I am recording my excursion, and in my mind, I’m saying “This is for you sis, cos she will appreciate the effort” Hey, did u know when we showed her,we were LOL so much, we had tears running down our face. Sorry, back to the story…
    Well, I’m running down the road, over down a grassy knoll (remember the shoes!!) hoping that I don’t rumble tumble down like “The poky little puppy” with the last shot of me that you would see, was that of my nice red patent sandals in the air!-, across the road to another grassy bank. Groan.. Oh dear…I looked down the footpath to see if I should go that way, cos I could really hear Stan singing Umbrella, but all I could see was 4 Security .
    OK,OK, I know, down the bank it is….!
    Sidle, sidle down the bank…please don’t fall, please don’t fall…I’m a mountain goat….made it with all my bits intact. Yay for Gissie!! The crowd goes wild! OK, so there’s only me, just got carried away a bit!

    Now, I’m in the park, like the turtle in the undergrowth.. recording the song.
    HIKOI MODE IS NOW IN FULL SWING!!! She would be proud of me!!
    Now, unbeknown to me, Kiwiana is in the river swimming ( which is only about 30-50 m to my left) and doing her bombs ( on the Coast, it is always the biggest splash ay – I’m feeling ya Kiwiana) . Hikoi meanwhile has been txting Lily’s hubby like mad to let us know but his phone has not been topped up. I know what ur thinking.., but he was very good in bringing us here ( I gotcha back, bro hehehe). I record Man’s World and lo and behold Lily and her hubby arrive. They have followed the singing too!!!!
    Stan is singing about 50 m away in front of me and the sound is good… you can hear for your selves. By now, it is 3.30-3.45pm and we haven’t even checked into our motel yet. We are having waaaay too much fun!!!! Grin So off to the motel, check in, shower and back by 4.30pm for the concert….

    More to come.-Last of rehearsal, Meeting Kiwiana, Opening Act

    And here is that famous clip of my sis, the spry and agile mountain goat,
    following the pied piper "Stan Walker", aptly titled "Dizzy Gizzy meets Umbrella (Paparazzi)"

    He may be singing Umbrella, but shes doing the moves from "Aint No Mountain High Enough". bwahahaha! I have the BEST sistas!
