Instead I’ll listen to new music from a talented Kiwi.

These songs by The Herd really capture the joy and relief of the country when we ousted Howard in 2007…. But Abbott and Rudd are dragging us back into playing politics with people’s lives, Tampa-style.


(and on a lighter but still scary note:)


Radiohead – Creep
Nine Inch Nails – Closer
Veruca Salt – Seether
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – Into My Arms
Soundgarden – Black Hole Sun
Hole – Celebrity Skin
Beck – Loser
Ben Folds Five – Underground
Everclear – Santa Monica
Powderfinger – These Days
Silverchair – Emotion Sickness
Tool – Stinkfist
Butthole Surfers – Pepper
Regurgitator – I Sucked a Lot of Cock to Get Where I Am
No Doubt – Just a Girl
Garbage – Only Happy When It Rains
Tori Amos – Cornflake Girl
The Dresden Dolls – Girl Anachronism
Blur – Song 2
The Living End – Prisoner of Society

Done. One song that was released this century (and the one that’s a certainty to miss the list :p)

:p Not bad!

Garbage at The Star Sydney
Photo stolen from the friend I took along

I am so so SO happy that I went to see Garbage earlier this year at The Star (casino, Sydney) and didn’t spend the money on a tank of petrol or a pair of shoes. The energy I get from a live gig, and especially from a band that have provided a soundtrack to the last 15 years of my life?

Freakin’ priceless.

An awesome setlist, with all our favourites, and a few from the new album in amongst it.

With stories interspersed with Shirley Manson’s gorgeous Scottish accent telling us stories and keeping us enthralled. (While sipping Glenfiddich!)

The trick IS to keep breathing.

What a great year in music :)


Sources of Energy

March 7, 2013

Still working off the energy from last night’s Garbage gig. And from my afternoon therapy sessions. Struggling with some things, more practical questions of “what’s the best decision to make re x” but we’ll get there.

Do you ever dream too real? Wonder if you’ve actually had that conversation? Taken that action? Lived that moment?
