Current FayvZ

Drin circa '89

I'd like to share a few songs that I love at the moment, lastfm is good for previews ;)

Bo Diddley - Who Do You Love?

Jungle drumming.
A chimney made out of a human skull.
TELL ME. Who do you love??

Howlin' Wolf - Killing Floor

I love Wolf's gravelly choking voice, desperately dying along to a bopping bop-along.

Mystery Jets ft. Laura Marling - Young Love

Young Love makes me swoon, the beat fills my heart and the words make me weep. I can't help but singing along to an imaginary love-chase in my head. If I only knew your name I'd go from door to dooooorr <3 style="font-size:130%;">Johnny Cash & Bob Dylan (apparently.) - Girl From The North Country

Real nice. I love the break into the chorus *burst*. A simply beautiful song.

The Raconteurs - The Switch and the Spur

Trumpets is all I'll say. It makes me feel like a brooding cowboy on a mission.

For theirs is the power and this is their kingdom
As sure as the sun does burn
So enter this path, but heed these four words,
You shall never return...

Any poor souls who trespass against us
Whether it be beast or man
Will suffer the bite or be stung dead on sight
By those who inhabit this land

For there's is the power and this is the kingdom
As sure as the sun does burn
So enter this path, but heed these four words,
You shall never return...

Jack White, I love you.

In a sleepy state of mind.

Mum and Dad had tickets to see Billy TheMan Joel on 23rd November, Dad had to work so I went with Mum instead. I always liked TheMan's songs but I wan't sure if I liked him.

My mind is made up and I now must declare my undying love for TheMan. Nothing will beat Pip opening the American Doll Posse set, but this one came a close second I have to tell ya. This guy is a legend and hilarious to boot... I do love him. The rain came heavy at the end of the show, in time for the encore of Waltzing Matilda/Piano Man... a blanket of rain falling against the bright coloured lights while the whole crowd sings along is a magical moment, I'm glad I got to share it with my Mumsy, she's the best.

* le sigh* such a good show.


TAFE is almost finished with and I cannot wait! It will be bittersweet though, Jo is going home and there's still that whole "day job" thing to contend with. I was unsure about going back to study next year but I enrolled anyway, just in case... I am a little excited to be doing the graduate show and the auction.

I get disillusioned with this art crap but I honestly couldn't imagine doing anything else. No matter how much shit I get from other people or how pointless this seems I'll keep at it~ what else is there??

The Maverick & The MILF

Sarah Palin. It's all been said but I felt the need to record my own OHWHATTHEFUCK.

I shake my head at you, John McCan'tbefreakinserious!

On to more important issues...

You know those whispery, waify, thin-legged-cardigan-wearing, acoustic bands who's songs are used in ads for IKEA and crap like that? I HATE them. Cease and desist immediately! I find you dull and painful. Like when you see a small, weak animal or child your inner beast wants to kill it for being so pathetic. This music makes my head swell and my eyes pop. I feel claws breaking out, fur grows over my face and that leg of yours starts to look good enough to hump!

Enough of your "experimental", self-conscious poop! Clanging on a triangle is boredom, not genius. I am scared for the future, this economic crisis can only increase the amount of child bands due to the inevitable lack of funding for real instruments. God help us.

Saw Stevie Wonder on Tuesday. Legend.

Things She Hates

A woman called me at work the other night and asked me to leave the store & find out the phone number of the chinese restaurant next door. You fucking idiot.

The film "Then She Found Me". A boring and depressing sack of poop.

Serving the scum of the earth. I hate you and your screaming monkey children.

Things She Loves

Kate Miller Heidke, I can't shake it either.

I'm more into music than art but I chose to learn the keyboard over the guitar and have regretted it ever since. I was in a band once and was taught by a talented guy called Kevin but then he left, I think he had to flee the country, which led me to giving up the guitar. If my talent were musical I'd be deadly. Unfortunately I'm stuck with the useless ability to draw and the burden of being incredibly lazy.

but I will keep on.

Studies suck, issues with death stunt and important life decisions loom large!
