My Music News

I am ecstatic about three things that are happening this month. The first, obviously is our house. The second is seeing Karnivool play, and their new CD coming out but the third caught me by surprise. Alexisonfire are releasing a new album and I knew nothing about it. I was listening to the radio the other day and they played a song off it for the first time. In my eyes Alexisonfire are one of the best bands the punk world has seen. I cannot wait to hear the whole cd and hopefully this means they are touring here soon.

My Northern Days

For the last two weeks I have been working out in Adelaide's northern suburbs . We have been digging the trenches to run data cables to surveillance camera's inside power sub stations. I have never really traveled to that side of town and I have to say, it is a different world out there. They are the lower class suburbs and the people are completely different. Everyone is looking for a fight. We get abused by people all day long just because we are there. We went into a McDonald's for a coffee and I noticed blue lights and syringe bins in the toilets. Different.

We finished our job out there today and I am glad for two reasons. One the whole area is harsh, its such a different environment and two because the drive in the morning sucks. Its over an hour so we have had a lot of long days recently. Can't wait to get to the next job.

My Island Weekend

This past weekend was spent celebrating the lovely Emma's 22nd birthday. Her family have a holiday house down south on Hindmarsh Island, so we packed up and headed down Saturday afternoon. Emma is one of my oldest friends. She was in my reception class when I started school so we have known each other for a good 18 years now.

We arrived at about 4PM and started celebrating straight away with a few bevies. It was a really great night and even though we had to brave the bitter cold I was surrounded by some of my oldest and dearest friends. We ate a great meal for tea and then enjoyed butterfly cupcakes that were made by Rhys' girlfriend Amelie.

The night, week and weekend were all top off by my two friends Steve and Layno. They presented me with a ticket to the upcoming Karnivool concert. I was devastated because I couldn't spend the money on a ticket due to the house and our mortgage and so for them to buy me one was amazing. Its going to be an incredible gig and I think the first round will be on me.

Sunday was spent with sore heads relaxing outside in the cold air with warm sun on our faces. Domi and I played a couple of games of chess on their oversized wooden board and then made the trek back to town. Definitely a good weekend.
