I Wanna Hold Your HandNovember 18th
My name is Yaara, you may all know me as the bitchy, nasty, unprofessional, obnoxious, annoying, nazi - you get the picture - moderator from the DP.net forum. Benji was looking for someone to help out with the updating of the site, and since I've done this sort of thing before with my RIP sites, I've volunteered myself for the job.
I am planning on doing my very best to bring DP.net back to its old glory, which won't be an easy task. So any help from you all would be much appreciated. Please, PM me with anything you think will be worthy of appearing on the site - pictures, videos, audios, interviews and articles. You'll be credited, promise.
So, enough with the speeches and onto my update debut.
McFly were on Children In Need last night. They opened the show with a cover of The Beatles' "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" which, according to Tom, was the very first No.1 on "Top Of The Shops".
They also did "Star Girl", "5 Colours In Her Hair" and "Sorry's Not Good Enough", but only the former two songs were televised. The rest were webcasted. If you were lucky enough to be online at the time and watch it, cool. If not, tough luck.
Here are some caps, thanks to Luke.
Luke the greatest also encoded 2 videos from the show - a short interview backstage and I Wanna Hold Your Hand performance. A video of the Star Girl performance that was aired later in the night will be coming soon. Find them all in our videos page.
McFly were also on the CIN webchat yesterday. You can read a transcript of the chat over fingerprint necklace. Not much Dougie in it, though.
This morning, TMi showed a previously recorded acoustic performance of All About You, which was on their website up until now. We have the high quality encode from the TV on our videos page. Thanks a bunch to Luke for encoding this so quickly! Notice Dougie's interpretations of the song.
On the 12th of November, Mcfly played the Radio 1 Chart Show Live gig in Brighton. The setlist was as follows (not in that order):
- Please Please
- Star Girl
- 5 Colours In Her Hair
- Sorry's Not Good Enough
You can find the first 3 songs' performance recording on our audios page. Thanks tamsie19 for recording. There were some audio interviews that were uploaded, you can find them on the forum. I'll try to get the good ones up on the audio page but it's not a top priority.
Also, a video of McFly's backstage interview with Sarah Cox can be found in the videos page, taken from the Radio 1 website.
To wrap up the Chart Show Live experience, here are some pictures. There are 4 or 5 HQs there.
On October 21st, 2006, McFly did yet another gig at G-A-Y The Astoria. Some things worth knowing:
- Dougie dressed as a woman, complete with pantyhose, knickers, a dress (all in different shades of green), awful makeup, a black wig and a feathers scarf.
- The setlist was as follows:
All About You
Dont Stop me Now
5 Colours in Her Hair
- You can download a video of Dougie altering into a woman here (right click & "Save Target As"). Big thanks to Micky for the video.
I've uploaded 21 HQ pictures of Doug to the gallery. A zip file with all the pictures I haven't uploaded, can be downloaded here (right click & "Save Target As").
McFly's brand spankin' new album, Motion In The Ocean was unleashed to the stores November 6th. Unfortunately, it only debuted at #6, behind Girls Aloud and others. So, if you haven't bought the album yet - buy it now. Stop being so cheap, dammit.
Dougie gets to shine in a song titled "Transylvania" where he sings the chorus (or bridge, Dougie and Harry are still fighting over that one) and which he wrote. I'm sure he wrote on other songs, too, but this is DOUGIE'S SONG.
Some upcoming McFly appearances are:
- Cheltenham Christmas Lights switch-on, Nov 18th (tonight)
- Sheffield Christmas Lights switch-on, Nov 19th (tomorrow night)
- Butlins gig, Nov 25th
- Dublin album signing, Dec 1st
Be there, or be square. Or something equally as dorky to be said.
As if Please Please, Don't Stop Me Now and Star Girl were not enough, 2 more songs from Motion In The Ocean will be making their single-release chart entry in the coming future. McFly's next single, released December 18th, will be a double A-side of Sorry's Not Good Enough/Friday Night. According to our resident stalker Micky, the Friday Night music video will be compiled of tour clips, while the Sorry's Not Good Enough video already showed up online. You can watch it on YouTube in pitiful quality. We're working on getting a better quality encode of the video. If you have one, drop me a line.
Friday Night will also be the theme tune to the new Ben Stiller movie, Night At The Museum.
There's an interview-thing in the new It's Hot!. From this we learn that:
- Dougie's bum sweats.
- Dougie has bad skin, despite eating "bananas and stuff".
- Dougie would willingly go with aliens if they ever invade the earth.
- Dougie is allergic to budgies, camels, donkeys, and horses. When he comes in contact with one of those, he turns grumpy and has salty water coming out of his nose. Charming.
That's a wrap for the day. Phew. That was long. Expect a lot of updates in the coming days - both of new things McFly are up to, and of older things like pictures, videos and audios that were yet to be added but should've been!
Best. Signing. Ever.November 9th
Hellooo, I'm Ben, you may remember me from when we actually used to update this site.
In short, myself and Ben(son) unfortunately no longer have the time or enthusiasm required to update dougiepoynter.net to the standard we would like. We're ideally looking for someone with the free time/sense of humour we require to carry on with the site. If this is you, email us.
In the mean time, the forums are still very much alive with all the latest news, pictures and other media. This is of course, with massive thanks to the Mods.
Anyway, myself and Benson just went to the signing at G-A-Y bar...
- McFLY arrived at 10pm sharp, and left at 11.30pm
- Dougie wore a black cap (sideways, naturally), and a black Tshirt.
- Damien Rice is a "pussy"
After a brief conversation about how it was perhaps better value to buy either the new Damien Rice album or Girls Aloud album rather than Motion in the Ocean, which ended in rather a lot of shouting, we concluded that:
- Dougie has a surprisingly firm handshake
- Danny and Harry are the nicest people ever
- Dougie is still the prettiest thing like, ever
