The Perth Parklife

I can't really taste anything, my nose is prickly and I think my lungs are filling up with mucus. The constant sneezing is making me think I may be coming down with something... But never the less, I am here to provide some entertainment (or lack there of) for my one and only reader, my father. Hi dad, get back to work! Neglecting my uni assignments seem to have been the only option this week when I prioritize earning some $$ and working on my social life. Cracking open a book has never given me a cold so it's safe to say I'm not allergic to paper, just the thought of hard work is enough to repel me toward more contagious activities.

I went to Parklife yesterday, 8 hours of electro beats and rave music including acts:

The weather was so good and so were those $12 cocktails which just tasted like non alcoholic juice, but never the less, quenched the thirst factor the Black Smirnoffs did not. Some notable performances of the day would include ART VS SCIENCE, energetic and engaging as always.

LITTLE BOOTS was so sweet in her little Topshop outfit:

I didn't get any good photos from LA ROUX, I listened to her from the Red Rooster stand as I was in a 100 person cue for fatty food which would make me even more dehydrated. She is AMAZING live! She sang In For The Kill and Bullet Proof and it was absolutely flawless. I'm hoping she comes back to Perth someday so I can see a fraction of her wacky hair.

METRIC was static with their electric anthems:

And in the end, myself and a couple of mates ended up at the front centre stage for TIGA:

Overall it was a good day, I wouldn't go so far as to say "awesome", I'd say it was epically okay. Major oxymoron there for ya.

Here are some more happy snaps of me and some flesh friends:

Boycotting Twitter

Firstly, still can't believe people ask me what Twitter is. Please, people of Perth, IT IS A HUGE PART OF POPULAR CULTURE NOW - it's not just a network for geeks and self obsessed B, C and D list celebrities anymore like it was a year ago.

I love the idea of Twitter being a huge database for unnecessary status updates (tweets) and @replies and RTs and #topics and followers (stalkers). Technology has just been such a revolutionary aid of stalking people at any given moment of the day. Ever since I have started using Twitter, I have been blogging a lot less. Tweets are under 160 characters so that doesn't leave a lot of room for expression and further detail of what could potentially be a good story. Essentially, Twitter has brought out the ADHD kid in me. Once I tweet it, I'm done on the subject, I don't blog about it like ye ol' dayzes.

Now, I am aware it may be hard fighting the urge to inform my 22 followers what I am doing at any given moment of the day, and yes it may be possible that I will go crawling back to Twitter like a thirsty camel in the Sahara. But it must be done if I am serious about getting back into the swing of things of steffbloggery. I just made up a word containing my name, and yes it does mean I am egotistic, so egotistic in fact I think this sentence has earned the right to stand alone in this blog and not hide behind the limitations of brackets.

Link to my twitter account in the side bar, you can keep checking here to see I have kept my word, or if you would like to see what I have been doing for the past few months. Now, I am not going to actually delete my Twitter account because that defeats the purpose of me showing my will power. I am demonstrating my will power by having the resources but not actually using them.

Who is with me here?

Blast From The Past!

I was reading through some of my older blogs and I came across this one I thought was quite funny. Dating back from March 2008, my fixation with candy and strangers:

"My photography lecture was ....interesting. The lecturer left us to watch a documentary and she never came back...

When I caught the bus home it was peak hour so I decided to wait for the next bus that wouldn't be so squished. There was a lady next to me thinking the same thing. She offered me candy. a child I was always told never to accept candy from I don't. I'm missing out aren't I? Seriously man. She was loaded with junk food. Chocolate, chips mmmmm chocolate chips. Tempting...but I already had a stick of gum in my mouth so I pleasantly declined. well.. at least I hope I pleasantly declined."

Look at what I have been reduced to, posting scraps from the past like this, I should be ashamed of myself.

I'll give you a lollipop if you don't complain ;)
