Archives for Month: May 2013

For the past two to three weeks I have been experiencing polyphagia/hyperphagia — excessive hunger or increased appetite. It is so bad it has come to the point where I have to stop myself from walking into the kitchen or going near any food, and I am wearing my retainer during the day to simply stop me from eating. In the past couple of weeks I have eaten whole packets of ravioli and tortellini (that […]

I think I may get a haircut soon. I haven’t cut my hair in over a year. It’s a bit uneven now, and it’s long enough to tuck behind my ear. I’m beginning to dislike that. I want to colour my hair as well, but I can’t seem to make up my mind. My options were ginger or dark purple, but after much thought, I’ve decided that I’ll do red. It won’t be for another […]

Or so I hope. A whole bunch of my favourite bands (namely The Griswolds, Velociraptor, Cub Scouts, DZ Deathrays) have been in the UK for The Great Escape music festival. Of course, I wish I was there. I love England in particular. I love English people. I wish I lived in London (for at least a bit, anyway). (I also wish I lived in Brisbane, but that’s a […]

March of the Real Fly released an EP on Friday. You can check it out on Bandcamp for free. There are also a limited number of hard copies. They come in a cardboard sleeve with fully sick album art.

Also check out OXBLVD (and remember that their band name is pronounced “Ox Blood”) and Sheppard, two local acts with some brewing talent.

I have only ever been to one sleepover in my life. My friends weren’t really into that kind of thing — I would visit their houses, but friends rarely visited my house because my parents weren’t too keen on having visitors, and I guess it was never really a problem because there wasn’t much to do at my house anyway. My friends had game consoles (better than […]

I hate The Backroom because its phone reception is just atrocious, but it’s a really intimate venue, and on the negative side again, it has bad lighting. However, I had the chance to photograph rock band Regular John, who have a deep, aged (in a good way!) sound to them. These guys know what they’re doing and last year released their album Strange Flowers.

I have some to a lot of realisations this week, and I know I hate lists, but this blog post is probably going to turn into a summary.

Kim has gone back to Perth and through this whole week I’ve missed her — I went to see Regular John play a gig on Thursday, and it felt so weird (and lonely) going alone. 😞 I know she’ll be back before I know it, but […]

A couple of shots of this rock band, Jacobide, from the Hills area (Sydney). I saw them last week at Village Festival. I love bands from the Hills area, because I only live twenty minutes out (I have friends who live there too) and bands from there tend to be pretty rad.

Also saw The Money Go Round. These guys were a ton of fun last Sunday — finally got around to sorting out […]

Purely gorgeous show Saturday night. Dreamy. Lovely. Beautiful. The undeniably awesome Jeremy Neale and Go Violets, supported by kickass band The Cadres. Why black and white? Jeremy Neale doesn’t need colour. He’s too cool for colour.

As usual, thumbnails do magic things when you click on them.

Kim has spent the last five (what, only five?) days in Sydney and we have had such a grand time together. Initially, she came here to see The Griswolds for their Sydney show and to meet me, but it turned out to be bucketloads of fun with Jeremy Neale and The Money Go Round, and lots of other funstuff.

Kim and I actually met on Twitter via The Griswolds, one of our favourite bands. […]
