It’s Official

Adele….Adele….Adele….You beauty.

Hitting home runs left right and centre.

This might be the album of the year for me. I read numerous “Sit in a corner with Adele’s new album and cry this weekend” and scoffed at that idea, but dear lord, it wasn’t a joke. This was is the real deal.

To prove a point, I can’t remember the last time I actually wrote something about a tune, any tune. It’s been ages.

Note to self: Writing things down is a good habit, especially in the later years when you can look back and go, jebus, what was I thinking.



Awake @ 9:30 on a Saturday morning

I must be the only person that needs 3 different versions of JUSTICE’S D.A.N.C.E.

Last night was the best doze ever, in the past few weeks. So good in fact, that this morning whilst cracking open my eggs, I inadvertedly cracked them over my waste bin instead of the bowl.
There I stood, wondering if I really had just done that.

After a few days of ~30° weather, it finally cooled down to a nice 17° today. It’s almost surreal how was this semester has passed by. In about 20 (my math skills are awful, and I’m too lazy to count) days time we’ll be sitting for our finals. Fast forward 5 days after that and I’ll be on a plane back to Klang again and I swear to god, the first thing I’ll have after touching down is Shanmuga’s nasi lemak! And I was wondering why that line seemed so goddamned familar.

I’ve got tons, and I do mean tons of lecture audios to go through as it’s finally hit me that even with a pristine attendance, by the time I’m home I’ll be waaaay too exhausted to even want to flick open my notes & the 8am classes suck the ruddy life out of me. Basically, they’re not worth attending.

Because I’ve just woken up after an interesting Friday night where I realize that my tolerance level is nowhere as high as it used to be and saw a cute family with a fairy mother & witch kids on my way to one of the pubs, Happy late Halloween all.

Bloc Party no go

Bloc Party’s ‘Intimacy’ Tour is clearly one of the hottest tickets throughout Australia, with first shows in Sydney and Melbourne selling out minutes after going on sale this morning. Fans in Adelaide and Perth followed suit, with both shows also selling out straight away.



It’s been a while



Soon as I heard iTunes was rolling out something akin to, my clunky balls in my boxers got all jiggly.
Genius seems to be doing a pretty darned good job. So far.


RS ♥’ing

I’ve just added an extra 200++ songs in less than 5 hours to my library. I’ll go to sleep tonight a very, very happy person.



I’ve always had a soft spot for vocally-strong women.

Sia Kate Isobelle Furler is an Australian singer and songwriter who scored a Top 10 hit in her homeland with her debut single, “Taken For Granted”. Pairing her unique Australian accent with the strident strings from Prokofiev’s Romeo & Juliet, the track was championed by Trevor Nelson and had Sia performing live on Jo Whiley’s Radio 1 show. Her debut album, Healing Is Difficult, garnered critical praise. She added her jazzy slurs to two tracks on Zero 7‘s Simple Things album…

Specifically, she contributed to the tracks Destiny and Distractions. Just take a listen to them both. Another one off that very album, In The Waiting Line is equally entrancing.



Breathe Me on the other hand is a far cry from these songs. I don’t think you’ll disagree. [odeo=]
You can just have it on loop all day long whilst you idly spend time staring at space.


Way Out West – Don’t Forget Me
