Just a quick question [23 Jun 2009|10:40am]

I have, somewhere in my possession (I'm planning to look for it at my parent's house this weekend) a picture of a llama from a colouring book, signed by Daniel, Chris and Ben.

When silverchair first started getting big, back in 1994 I wrote letters to the fan club and to my delight got personalised replies! My cousin (also a fan) suggested I should send a picture of a llama to them (because they seemed to have a thing with llamas back then). So we found a picture in a colouring book and sent it to them. I suggested they could colour it in, I got it back signed (with a little beard drawn on my Daniel).

I still like their music, but I'm not the massive fan I was then. I need money for things like a new car and other adult things that I never worried about back then when I was 14.

How much would an item like this be worth do you reckon?

Thanks for your help. :)

Triple J Interview with Johns [22 Jun 2009|06:46pm]

[ mood | cheerful ]

Hey all,

I was doing my obligatory login to myspace today and stumbled upon this new post from the chair.  The update date says June 18th, but I didn't see anybody else sharing it with the group yet, so I wanted to pass it on. ^_^  Enjoy.

See What Popped in my Inbox this Morning [07 Jun 2009|07:21am]

[ mood | excited ]



Silverchair have been back in the studio over the last few weeks!

Daniel, Ben & Chris recently got together in a remote studio for a bit over 3 weeks to work on some new songs.

They put down a bunch of ideas & Daniel has since gone away to write and develop the songs further.

The band made a small video themselves as a little special something just for you. There are no release plans yet.

Check out the video now at http://www.chairpage.com/news

desperate chairhead seeks dvd [30 Jan 2009|11:49pm]

Hello everybody...

I've been searching for a NTSC version of the Across the Great Divide dvd.
I had seen it on amazon.com once, but I had no money, and now...it's discontinued.

Does anybody happen to know where I could find it or is anyone willing to help a fellow chairhead out by letting me buy a copy from you??

Please comment back or email me at silverside87@gmail.com
Thank you!!!!

Conductor Concert .gif. [21 Aug 2008|07:26pm]

[ mood | hopeful ]

Does anyone have that close up .gif of Daniel Johns, while they're in concert, and as he's singing and he's swaying his finger to the music, sort  of like a conductor a bit!?

If anyone has this i'll love them forever. D=

This Just Popped into My Inbox [16 Jun 2008|07:29pm]

If you all don't already know all of this, here's what just popped into my inbox:


Daniel Johns made history at the 2008 APRA Awards held in Sydney last night when he won the prestigious APRA “Songwriter of the Year” award.

This latest achievement makes the Silverchair frontman the first songwriter in the 26 year history of the APRA Awards to receive this honour on three separate occasions (he also won in 1995 with bandmate Ben Gillies and then in 2003 for his work on “Diorama”).

In addition to winning “Songwriter of the Year” Daniel’s composition “Straight Lines” (which he co-wrote with The Presets’ Julian Hamilton) was named the APRA “Song of the Year” and the “Most Played Australian Work”.

“It’s a serious honor to be recognized by your peers in the music community” Daniel Johns said “Writing songs means everything to me so to receive these awards for the art of songwriting feels particularly special.”

These acknowledgements by APRA and its members cap an extraordinary year for Daniel and his Silverchair bandmates. After a lengthy hiatus the group returned in 2007 with their fifth consecutive number 1 charting album “Young Modern”. The disc was among the most acclaimed of the group’s career. It went on to be certified triple platinum and swept last year’s ARIA Awards.

After last night Daniel Johns now has the unprecedented honour of winning both more APRA Awards AND more ARIA Awards than any other artist in history. He recently turned 29 years old.

After touring non-stop into early 2008, Silverchair is currently on a well-earned break. The band hopes to return to the studio next year.

Does anyone have the songs from the iTunes singles for "Reflections Of A Sound" and "Mind Reader"?

I tried to switch my iTunes to Australia but it won't let me purchase them cause my billing address isn't in Australia. If anyone has them can you send them to me?

I am so close to having every Silverchair single. Besides those I need to get "Findaway" and "Without You". I can't find "Without You" anywhere and not even the Diorama Boxset. And "Findaway" is going or $50 on Ebay which I can't afford. =( Anyone know where I can find those 2 cds for cheaper? I'd pay $20 each.

Hey all,

I am looking for the large, close-up photo of Daniel where he is wearing a green blazer and smiling.  I have it as the background on one computer, and want to switch it to another, but I cannot remember where I found the picture.

Thanks for the help!

silverchair-- i misses them. [14 Mar 2008|12:45pm]


so, i  just realized how much i miss silverchair. 

i had good experiences & one bad experience in my concert viewings of them on '07 & i really really really miss them.  i want to see them again but i heard they are writing a new album. if this is the case then by all means i'll keep on missing 'em til they come back to the US

i was going thru photobucket and doing a picture survey & one of the questions that was "Who is your celebrity crush" and of course, I put daniel in the seach bar to find a picture of him & i found the most gorgeous one of him I ever found! have a looksie:

it's sad to hear what happened b/w him and natalie, but i'm sure it was for the best. i just hope they return. they cant do what they did before & took almost 5 years off before another album was released. no more of that! 

and my all time fav album is "Diorama" but they're albums get better & better with each release. When I want to see them in concert, I just pop in the Silverchair & Powderfinger DVD and enjoy. lol. i'm sad, i know. 

but I thought i would just share my thoughts on the return of silverchair & how much i miss them!

Box sets? [13 Mar 2008|11:08pm]

[ mood | curious ]

So tonight as I go through the tedious process of putting all of my music on my computer for the second time, I got to thinking about boxed sets. The Diorama Box is one of my favorite possessions, and I was so ecstatic to find a Freak Box Set that I never even unwrapped it. But what about Neon Ballroom? Is anyone aware of a box set for that? I'd be overjoyed, but I don't think it exists.

In sadder news, my special import copy of the CD/DVD of Young Modern was stolen out of my car along with 20 other CDs (and furthermore, my iPod, which I managed to get back--unfortunately it was wiped, thus all the re-importing of songs). Let's hope that something good comes out of this and someone learns about the magic of silverchair through stolen property.

this llama-thing. [11 Mar 2008|11:01pm]

[ mood | confused ]

okay so I've never really understood this, on frogstomp this is all this talk about llamas. I get that some of it is a joke but "silverchair supports the liberation of the llama nation" is that just a joke as well or is it some deeper meaning?

*I feel like a n00b but please don't mock me*

SALE! aka Please buy my crap! :) [01 Mar 2008|02:49pm]

[ mood | anxious ]

A couple people expressed interest, so I put together a list of all the extra Silverchair items I own and would like to sell. I even took pictures of every single item this morning, so there would be no surprises for anyone. Also to prove that the items actually exist. :)

I've never done a sale on LJ before, so I'm not quite sure what the rules should be. I thought about doing it a bit auction style, but visions of massive confusion made me scrap that idea. So, we'll do it first come first serve and as items are claimed (seriously) I will cross them off the list. Unless someone is willing to pay more then the listed price for a claimed item, then we may have to do a few items silent auction style, but I don't really see that happening too much.

Take a look, if you see any items you wants to buy, post a comment saying so. I'll leave this up till next weekend (March 8th), that way everyone in the comm will have a chance to check it out. Next week I'll work out the shipping charges and payment options for buyers and we'll go from there.

Sale status: CLOSED
