On the 25th I went to see James Morrison live, and though it was really lovely and I adore his music, I couldn’t help but think that it was all better suited to a smaller venue. Who can I blame, though? His show was sold out, everyone sang along to all his songs and it was simply beautiful. He’s an international star and has fans of all ages, and with three hit albums all with […]

I’m 21, and on the 21st day of this month I went to my 21st music gig. Wooohoo. 😁 Predictably, I went to see Lime Cordiale, The Griswolds and Hey Geronimo – three bands I’ve seen before (once, four times and twice respectively). Somehow I don’t think I can get enough of this lot. They’re a wonderful combination of music.

It was a bit of a shame that Lime didn’t pull up much of […]

The lighting was a bitch. That is all.

But everyone digs that shit because it’s called ~ambience~. You were all fantastic even though my photos look like they’ve been dipped in vodka (I AM SORRY I REALLY LIKE VODKA).

I had a great time. 🙂

In a nutshell: I caved, I bought an iPhone 4S. After finding out about the iPhone 5 and its lack of new features, I knew I’d made the right choice. I bought a white iPhone 4S, capacity 64GB, for only about $500. I know I had just bought housing for my Galaxy Ace and was even considering the Ace 2, but after much thought, I decided to go back to an iPhone.

Go back? Well, […]

I went to another gig on Saturday evening. It was actually more of an afternoon gig; I wish more of those existed because I sort of prefer to get home earlier rather than late… though things aren’t really in a “party” mood before nine o-clock! I was early to the venue, which reminded me of my first show at the Gaelic, where I saw Ben Jorgensen. I was well over three hours early for a […]

I guess I tried a different approach today… since I was hanging with the band most of the time, I sort of missed a good spot when Lime Cordiale came on. It was all ages so I might as well let the young ones have their fun. I took a few photos behind the crowd. I should definitely aim for that more next time.

I like indie music. I wear colourful dorky clothes. I wear red Converse. I use Instagram.

It started when I was ten years old. I wore pink culottes. I wore fucking overalls. My hair was always in the same hairstyle, even on days when I refused to brush it. I stopped brushing it after a while. I got into HTML. I made websites while everyone played on the playground. I trolled people with terrorism jokes, […]

“Sleep earlier.”

Easier said than done. So much easier said than done.

That aside, on Friday I went with James to see a band from our hometown – sleepmakeswaves. This band is truly incredible; they write music that has no words, but has undeniable power and emotion. You might not hear it in the music as much as you know it’s there, but it’s there. It’s deeply hidden in innocent melodies and undertones of […]

I took the day off work today because I woke up dead. Well, no, that’s not possible… but I woke up feeling downright crap. I felt like I had an evil bout of hayfever, but I’m alright now. I think I just had a really, really, bad sleep. I kind of dozed for most of the morning before eating breakfast.

For most of the day I felt guilty about calling in sick to work, but […]
