Aria Awards 2012 Form Guide

This will be relatively brief as I’m pressed for time and have left this far too late, but if you missed it/are preoccupied with the heat/don’t really care, tonight is one of the most insignificant awards, if not the most, nights of the year; The Arias. It’s my job to pretend I care so here’s […]

Very Inspiring Blogger Awards

I only realised recently that I actually follow very few blogs at all. It’s really not okay. As someone whose livelihood relies upon people clicking onto different posts that I write, and pretending that they care about said posts, I should really be supporting others trying to do a similar thing.

The Black Keys @ Sidney Myer Music Bowl

Walking through the gates the of Sidney Myer Music Bowl on Halloween eve, there was definitely something in the air. I’m gonna maintain that it was excitement, not horror, because after years of rumours and backing out of festivals the Black Keys had finally returned to our shores for a run of headline dates. If […]
