Today, Brisbane group Violent Soho released their new single Tinderbox. You can listen to it on Home and Hosed, and it is also available on iTunes.

As soon as I heard that the song was out, I had to have a listen to it. I’ve followed Violent Soho’s music for the past year, and I remember being absolutely enthralled by their music.

Let’s start with Tinderbox. It’s hard, and it’s edgy, and it’s […]

Shakespeare – you taught the modern world – in your perfect prose and bitter sonnets; your emotional scripts; your flawless hand, intricate form and written words – about all there is in a world of betrayal, love, lies and most of all – tragedy.

They say a person dies every few seconds. Does it matter to you if that person doesn’t matter to you? Do you care about that person’s family? Do you care why […]

I just woke up. It’s 2am and I had told my alarm to wake me up at six… however, I fell asleep with my laptop on my lap as I sat in bed. Argh. I think I must have woken up from an uncomfortable sitting position.

It was nearly 1am and I’ve had just showered, then put this lovely sweet-smelling green tea and honey cream on my arms and legs. It’s supposed to be Spring […]

My computer blocked me from YouTube.

Of course, that’s entirely my fault for blocking a bunch of time-wasting websites past the time of 10:00pm. My blocker tells me with large text, “Shouldn’t you be working?” Yes, I should, but I’ve done a little bit of work today, and for me, that’s enough. I still have homework for class on Friday, but I figured I’ll just do that tomorrow night. Something tells me tomorrow’s class is […]

Okay so, my teacher for Friday’s class did turn up on Friday. I was late, and class already started. I’m going to say this right from the off: This subject is so boring. It’s about digital information/interaction design, but it’s shit. See, I was expecting it to be on a more general scale, but it’s client-based and focused on this thing called interactive television.

I hate television. I watch nothing but Doctor Who and random […]

I named my guitar Sparrow ‘Alex’ Alexander, and he’s been added to The Cavalry. He’s named after the mail client Sparrow, and my cousin Ricky Alexander. ♥️

I’m up at 2:30am and I figured it was time to write something, to at least stop my mind from wandering before going to sleep. I haven’t blogged for a whole week and to be honest, it feels strange. I missed it, but there wasn’t much to say. […]

I honestly never thought I’d see the day when I’d see one of my favourite bands – ever – live. Sadly, the Smashing Pumpkins aren’t like they used to. I loved the old lineup, but like my friend Dylan told me, there’s no way I’m going back in time to see the old lineup… so I might as well see the band with the new members, right?

Maybe I loved the band so much back […]
