Do the whirlwind.
So this is my very first entry. Not one for blogging, always thought those people just talked alot about themselves but i figure now its a good way to vent things, express yourself (i guess as much as you can by stting on your bed and staring at a screen) and meet new people. The latter is what i am for. So i would love the be able to kind of blog about all my upcoming shows ill go to and festivals and travels but all of them arent starting for atleast another week ( big day out next friday, everyone should excited) and well the travelling wont happen til i save up my pretty little pennies and go sometime next year. I figure this whole my world tour thing is pretty much the most amazing opportunity to be put out there for people our age ( i guess that age can be extended out to well wherever you like) and for people with such wide varying music styles as the people on here. I thought this especially considering i just spent the last year ( my last at college i will in about 2 weeks be a graduate!) thinking about whether i wanted to just move across the world and experience the cultures of europe and britain and try and work over or get set and try and start my career in the music industry, just so you know, i am still very much undecided on where my life will take me. That's kid of exciting not knowing how my life will end up but also completely terrifying as i don't know where to start or what to do.
So since the last recognisable band i saw may have been quite awhile ago and the next recognisable bands ill see are not til next friday and then mumford and sons in february ( be extremely jelous) i am just gonna tell you a lot about me right now. Get to know me, get to love me!
So i am 21, live in the country but pretty much just work there ( at subway, yeah what a career making sandwhiches for a living, not!) i spend a lot of my time trying to be in the city, seeing friends, going out an just chilling. I spend a lot of time on oxford street on thursday nights, not only because Qbar plays the best party tunes every week but also i can weekly see local and national bands play there, from the suprisingly amazing and to the awful. It just reminds me of only 2 or 3 years ago when it used to be young and restless and the getaway plan playing these amazing small shows.
As i said will graduate in about 2 weeks with a Bachelor in Entertainment Business Management, the most amazing 3 years of my life where i met people i miss immensly.
The rest feels weird to explain, it feels a bit weird to sit here and talk about myself, i would much rather be sitting here talking to or about amazing entertainers and songwriters and performers who've changed my life or will i think make music history. I was once asked a question like what was your earliest musical memory and i couldn't even remember, i just know music has always been there even though my parents arent exactly the most knowledgable about music or musically inclined. The only thing i could think of is that i remember going on road trips to melbourne with my parents and my little brother and listening to billy joel and black sabbath and making up our own words to iron man after we'd seen the sixth sense. Also my mum tells me she used to play cold chisel to get me to sleep, which while i am not a huge cold chisel fan does explain how i know the words to most songs i dont even remember hearing.
One thing i do believe is that there are only 2 kinds of music really...good music and bad music. I guess everyones ideas on this differ because music is experienced differently by everyone but this is what i say when people ask what type of music im into rather than saying everything because i've learned to never say never. All through highschool i said i don't like 'dance music' or 'rap music' but when i heard the presets i fell in love and now i dream of jay z or kanye being my wife and adore dancing around to biggie smalls with friends. Take that lesson and live by it with anything...never say never.
I think thats enough writing about me, i'll try and keep this updated as soon as something amazing happens or i experience an amazing event or even better to bitch about a bad one. I'm not on here for people to judge me or bag me out or to offend anyones taste or anything like that, i'm just writing whatever to get things off of my chest. So take a read, if you wanna discuss anything just let me know, i am so so so open to conversations about music, bands, movies, fashion, art, anything but remember if you havent got anything nice to say don't say anything at all.
