Last Nite, I went out to watch one of my favourite bands, The Stokes, play for their sideshow for the Australian music festival, Splendour In The Grass. The bands that played that night were: Gypsy & The Cat, The Like, and The Strokes. The Strokes were violent to start, but it calmed down near the end. I couldn’t take many decent photos, because I found it hard to hold my phone straight, but my friend took many great ones. The show was amazing, but no new material was heard, just old classics and fan favourites. Here are my friends photographs.

please enjoy! (:

I found these off WildAmmo, I can’t remember how. However, this is one of my favourite movies, and probably one I’ve recommended most out of anything I’ve seen before. (Yes, I enjoyed it more than Into The Wild.). Check out the rest of the artwork here, but these are some of my favourites.

an extremely good friend of mine, has a blog, and this was a segment on his. and pretty much, there are a few things that i love. So i’ll jump right into it.
1) Streetlight Manifesto – Keasby Nights
POSSIBLY MY FAVOURITE ALBUM EVER. There’s not really a weak point of the whole album. Highlights are Kristina She Don’t Know I Exist, Walking Away. The album really speaks to me because its so personal, and and frontman Tomas Kalnoky says at the end “truth be told, I don’t care if a single record is sold.” the lyrics are real, the music is real. I demand you hear it once.

i spent a week drinking the sunlight of winnetka, california
where they understand the weight of human hearts
see sorrow gets too heavy and joy it tends to hold you
with the fear that it eventually departs.
and the truth is i’ve been dreaming of some tired tranquil place
where the weather won’t get trapped inside my bones
and if all these years of searching find one sympathetic face
then it’s there i’ll plant these seeds and make my home
i spent a day dreaming of dying in mesa, arizona
the olive green of life had turned to ash
and i felt i was on fire, with the things i could have told you
i just assumed that you eventually would ask
and i wouldn’t have to bring up my so badly broken heart
and all those months i just wanted to sleep
and though spring, it did come slowly, i guess it did its part
my heart has thawed and continues to beat
i visited my brother on the outskirts of olympia
where the forest and the water become one
and we talked about our childhood, like a dream we were convinced of, that
perfect peaceful street that we came from
and i know he heard me strumming all those sad and simple chords
as i sat inside my room so long ago
and it hurts that he’s still shaking from those secrets that were told by a
car closed up too tight and a heart turned cold
and i went to san diego
in the birthplace of the summer
and watched the ocean dance under the moon
and there was a girl i knew there, one more potential lover
i guess that something’s gotta happen soon
because i know i can’t keep living in this dead or dying dream
and as i walked along the beach and drank with her
i thought about my true love, the one i really need
with eyes that burn so bright, they make me pure
they make me pure
they make me pure
i long to be with you
Conor Oberst, from the song “June On The West Coast”
Probably one of my favouite Bright Eyes songs, these lyrics really speak to me. There are few songs ever recorded that I can relate to as much as this. However some stuff is kinda personal. So I won’t bother to highlight much; I was listening to this song, and Oberst’s sombre voice just spoke to me.
(also, I haven’t really prepared any posts :P)
Heres a video of the song, if you wish to enjoy it, as much as I did, maybe.
