Looking forward to checking out a couple of rock/metal gigs over the weekend, it's been far too long. I'm going to go and see a few local bands in a small pub, have a few drinks and reconnect with what it is like to be a local musician slogging it out on the pub circuit. Should be fun!

Freelance work keeps rolling...

Damn I'm having one of those days where nothing is really happening musically - I try ideas and none of them stick, they sound ok, but not really interesting enough to make the cut. I've been trying to push on through and hoping it was just a slow start, but it's not working. Time to walk away for the rest of the day...

Work on the debut album by The Spiral Sequence continues and is going well... I'm now up to song six of a planned ten songs for the album, which I am writing, recording all the instruments, singing and mixing myself.

Here are some lyrics to a song called Serpentine I just finished working on:

Snake eyes staring back at me
Hide forked tongue behind...

I was studding textile and art at University of New south Wales. I had so fun, and I met the best people in the world :-)
If you ever go to Sweden you should do that in our summer. There are very warm in the south, and it can still be snow in the north.

I would really like to go travelling around the world and meet interesting people, there are so many people out there on sites like this and other art and music sites I regularly visit, so many creative, alternative, interesting people. I really do get a bit bummed out by how many people I meet and interact with here in Melbourne who are just plain boring...

Travelling is a great way to meet more people in a similar headspace (although the internet does that pretty well...) but it's also a fantastic way to assess where you fit into the broader scheme of the world. Keep on saving, it's well worth it smile

Yeah, half my friends are also settling down and popping out babies at the moment. That route isn't attractive to everyone at the same time, though I'm gradually beginning to see the appeal, without having to feel like it's making me more conservative.

Hey, I understand the reservations about having kids- I used to hate the idea with a passion, and I'm still in the phase where I want to get as much stuff done as I can regarding my career and travel (both combined if possible!) before I *settle down* in one spot for too long... though it's starting to get to the point where my body may gang up on me soon. The fact that the idea of kids isn't as abhorrent as it once was makes me think that it's probably to do with hormones, rather than a change in conscious priorities that way...

Depending on what you want to do with your music it might still be possible to have both, you just need an understanding and flexible partner smile

Well despite my general lack of festive spirit leading up to Christmas it was actually really enjoyable visiting my girlfriend's family interstate and spending four relaxing days just eating, drinking and generally lounging about in the sun in 30C plus heat. Perhaps next year I won't be such a grouch lol. I think it's the ultra-busy lead up to Christmas rather than...

The end of the week draws near, only a few days of work left to go before a two week break. I just had an icy cold Belgian beer while working on some drum sounds and reviewing a song I wrote a few months back and damn that beer was good.

Sometimes just one beer can summon up a whole host of feelings, of sunnier...

That sounds like a good idea, I think I'll blow it off next year too... Fuck Christmas! tongue

Today was the dreaded Christmas shopping expedition... something I definitely do not look forward to every year. I'm not into the whole Christmas thing really but as my family is I go along with it to keep them happy. I don't mind catching up with everyone and having a nice lunch Christmas Day, that's all cool, but the whole gift giving thing...

Last night my girlfriend and I watched Zeitgeist and Zeitgeist Addendum, which I have to say were both very interesting and presented a very different view of the world than the one we are used to. I've been into alternative views for a long, long time and always had a problem with the way our society functions (or doesn't function more the point...

The other night I watched Control, a movie based on the story of Joy Division and Ian Curtis, based on a book written by Ian Curtis's wife. I have to say it was one of the most depressing things I have ever seen, it was a good film and well executed but if you're looking for an uplifting experience best look elsewhere.

I...

Finally recovering from a rather nasty bout of the flu. Everyone I know has had it to some degree. Yuck.

In other news the drummer in my band quit, but it's just made me more determined to find someone more dedicated and hungry to succeed. Could well be a blessing in disguise. So the guitarist and I plan to keep writing and searching for...
