the liberating luncheon

There is something wonderfully empowering about doing things on your own. It is the kind of feeling you get after cutting off your hair, or reaching a long-term goal. This morning, after various blood tests and doctor appointments, I discovered that I am not dying (as Google had me believe). This was obviously fantastic news.... Continue Reading →

blast from the past: The Young Ones

      The Young Ones focuses on the lives of four highly unlikeable uni students that live together in a share house. Although the cult series is over thirty years old, there is nothing else like it. I first watched The Young Ones when I was a teenager. The bizarre humour, student stereotypes and... Continue Reading →

band shirts: fans vs fashion

I was just shy of thirteen years old when I went to my very first concert. It was Coldplay's Viva la Vida tour and it blew me away. Before leaving the venue, my mother bought me a bright red t-shirt with Viva la Vida written across the chest from the official merch stall. That shirt... Continue Reading →

The island was surprisingly quiet for my visit. While driving around the island, the cool scenery reminded me of those lovely little... Continue Reading →

album of the day

  Album: Frogstomp Artist: Silverchair Year: 1995 The rundown: Frogstomp¬†is raw, rough rock. It is the pure grunge sound that can only come from the minds of pissed off teenagers - all three band members were only 15 years old at the time of recording. That's pretty astounding when you listen to the dark lyrics... Continue Reading →

Cactus Country

I recently ventured to Mexico with my friend, Georgia. Just kidding. We visited Cactus Country, a huge cactus garden located just a few hours away from Melbourne, in Strathmerton.¬†The 10-acre dreamland is home to over 10 thousand species of succulent and cactus. There are also many gorgeous murals amongst the plants. Georgia and I explored... Continue Reading →
