Cherry Picker Extraordinaire

Ever had the feeling you're being followed? I have that feeling at the moment.... but it's not coming from humans.... it's from cherry pickers. They are at the corner of every street I walk down and I want to know why!! Why are you around every time I venture outside? Transformer or some strange conspiracy to steal me in the night? I'll never know. In February, during my trip to Tasmania(for a dance show with Drill Performance Company), I had my tarot cards read and I was told to stay open to the signs. Signs are the things that present themselves in our lives and they seem to bombard us for a while. So..... if I'm Staying open to cherry pickers... what the hell could they be telling me?? Maybe to eat more cherries.

Viva La Revolution

Soundwave is no new festival on the block. It occurs at the end of Summer, has a range of Rock, Metal and Punk bands and plays in every major city around Australia. It first originated in Perth before moving to each capital city in 07/08. Ive been to every Soundwave held in Melbourne, seeing bands like All Time Low, Anberlin, Bloodhound Gang, We the Kings, The Rocket Summer and Saosin. Absolute pro festival if you ask me. Anyway... Due to high demands for Bands wanting to tour Australia in the late September period, a spin off festival 'Soundwave Revolution' was created and is rumoured to be a once off event for 2011. Van Halen is headlining with Panic! at the Disco, Bad Religion and Alice Cooper in toe. Over the last few months, a facebook page slowly leaked information about the so called "Revolution", until finally the plans for a new festival were let loose. You should have seen what the Metal heads were writing when the first punk bands were announced, total sooks. While its gonna be a sick as day, holding it in Melton isnt really the best of venues(Melbourne).... Ive never even heard of that place.... Checkout the page, buy some tickets, and join me. VIVA LA REVOLUTION!

What's Dunn is Done

Everyone loves Jackass. They are stupid, reckless, idiotic... yet we watch their shows and see their movies just to see what random shit they have been getting up to. Sadly this morning we woke to find that a beloved Jackass star, Ryan Dunn, died in a horrible car accident in Philadelphia. Drinking and Speeding were said to be involved, as he earlier posted a picture of him drinking on his twitter. He was a cool guy, and its sad to see him leave this world, but hopefully the quote he makes in his unreleased movie Living Will "Dyings the best thing that happened to me", is true. Check out his most famous stunt (where he sticks a toy car up his bum) here. Hope the weather is nice all, It's so cold in Melbourne I think my hands will fall off.

Love Sucks

"There comes a point when you just love someone. Not because they're good, or bad, or anything really. You just love them. It doesn't mean you'll be together forever. It doesn't mean you won't hurt each other. It just means you love them. Sometimes in spite of who they are, and sometimes because of who they are. And you know that they love you, sometimes because of who you are, and sometimes in spite of it."  Laurell K. Hamilton (Incubus Dreams)

I hate not knowing the right thing to do in sticky situations. I wish there was some Instructional book that I could read that would give me the exact advice on what I should be doing with my life. But there is nothing like that.... All we are given is a handful of Past experiences that we mould together to try and determine the best thing for the future. Sometimes you love someone. But is love always enough? I'd like to believe that is true, yet my past experiences beg to differ.

Yes... I am one of the 200 Million people that read and enjoyed the Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyer. I was a hater at the start and refused to even acknowledge its existence in the world, but as fate would have it, I wound up with every book and movie. Even... I am sad to admit... an Edward Cullen poster which is stuck behind my bed! Buying it was a struggle so I lied to the Shop assistant and said it was for my younger sister Maddison just to avoid the embarrassment of having the blooming thing hahaha. ANYWAY. This trailer is epic, and hopefully does the book some justice unlike the first movie Twilight(Directed by Catherine Hardwicke). It seemed like they knew eachother for three days and were madly in love just like that. Never trust the movies people. Books are always the way to go. Also check out 'Midnight Sun', It is Meyer's partial draft of the book Twilight from Edward's point of view. It somehow leaked to the public and the completion has been postponed until after the Breaking Dawn movies are released. Enjoy!
