I have been a bad, terrible domain owner. I’m not even referring to myself as a blogger anymore. I’m just a slacker. Well that isn’t entirely true. I have been pretty busy.
Summer happened. I wasn’t home, it was festival and party and river sessions and the like galore. Summer is now over. Last weekend I modelled in the Australian Body Art Awards for my fantastic artistic creative friend Steph. It was incredible. I never thought that I would end up performing on a stage naked. Okay so naked underneath an entire layer or two of paint on my body.
I have to say it was quite amusing standing on Swanston St wearing nothing except a Kimono.
So I am going to use the age old excuse of I have been too busy doing things to be able to document them. Which isn’t entirely an excuse, I just haven’t prioritised writing sadly. That is all going to change. I am overhauling a bunch of stuff at the moment. Got a few exciting things happening and look forward to everything unveiling in the near future.
It’s that time of the year where I sit around listening to tunes from last year and attempt to compile a short list of songs to vote in the JJJ Hottest 100. Even harder is choosing the one song to be the ultimate on the list. As I have been slack on the Tuesday Tunes takes this a huge list of some awesome music to have hit our eardrums over 2012.
After months of debating with myself I have finalised my list and put my vote in. Some of my choices are for personal reasons, others are for the genuine fact that the song got cranked every time it came on the radio, one or two for the fact that they are just really good songs overall. We are talking production, lyrics, and instrumentally.
In no particular order here is my top 10.
My special mentions go to the following but unfortunately they just escaped placing in the top 10.
There are so many more but I would be here listing so many videos. I think I am just going to go put together my own playlist.
First day back at work is ending the festive season but definitely not slowing down summer or the amount of awesome super good fun times ahead.
This was one of the best Christmas/New Years periods I have had in years. Catching up with amazing friends and with the first real summer in years plenty of river hangs and swims. I have been so happy over the last few weeks I am making sure I hold onto this emotional and mental state that the last couple of weeks have allowed me to enter. I am so excited for Rainbow Serpent this year, and to help pass the next 17 days I am making sure to pack as much into my time as I can. This will also ensure that I really make the most of this summer. I know it is shit for the farmers and all that, but Australian drought really works in my favour and I love it. Sure I spend my time hiding in the shade and the UV index has be ridiculously high that even doused in sunscreen the suns rays cook my skin. If a cannibal was around I wouldn’t be surprised if they started gnawing at my limbs.
Some of my goals for 2013 that I am excited and motivated to put my time and effort into.
Write my book
Get my web series happening
Get more arty and crafty
I forgot just how much I love the macro on my camera but was happily reminded of it by the nature hanging out over summer.
