kings of leon. adelaide entertainment centre. it was all about the music. nothing fancy, no theatrics. they just played and sang. and they and sounded bloody brilliant.

the (side of the) road less travelled

i drove on the wrong side of the road today. well, it was the right side (and correct). but it felt so wrong. i watched tiana and bryce skateboard. they’re so cool. i wish i could skate. 

there are so many things i wish i was. i wish i was a surfer – like riding a wave twice the size of me was the only way i could start my day. i wish i was a vegetarian. loving something so much that (no matter how delicious) i would refuse to eat it. i wish i was a musician. where i played an instrument and could jam along with anyone with any type of music.

but i am none of these things. and no matter how hard i try, i’m still going to get scared by big waves, i’m still going to crave a big, fat piece of steak and i’m still going to sing along to songs that i don’t know the words to. as loud as i can.

i loved learning something new today. i know how to drive, but i don’t know how to drive on the other side of the car, on the other side of the road. it gave me a buzz.

one good thing about music, when it hits you feel no pain. one good thing about music, when it hits you feel no pain. so hit me with music, hit me with music. hit me with music…brutalise me with music.
