Ear Pleasurer

This week, I got to catch up with a good interstate friend in the form of Mikeh or Carcass, otherwise known as the drummer of The Middle East. Yes, I’ve raved about them before. Mikeh as always was good to me, and secured me entry into yet another amazing festival his band was playing in.
This time it was On the Brightside, and I even scored catered lunch backstage with the bands… we still don’t know what that yellow stuff they served us was? giant cous cous perhaps? It was gross regardless.

The Middle East as always was superb, here’s a snapshot of one of their songs I got on my iphone, with guest appearances from Mumford and Sons.

I had to leave early to play a hockey match, but a special pass saw me seeing and falling in love with these guys all over again.

I love this song so much!

Here are some memories, and how good is watching the bands from the actual stage, and being able to look out upon the crowds. AMAZING!

Thank you Mikeh. I loved seeing you again!

This was the Me of February

before things started to look up. It’s always a journey. I’d just like some good luck for a change.

There must be something wrong with me.
I get so tired, I can’t sleep.
The voices in my head are haunting my dreams.
No matter how I try,
To kill the thoughts inside.
I cannot, I cannot, hide.

The mirror staring back at me.
The cracking lines along my face.
The times I try to get things straight, but could not.
I know how hard I try,
To keep myself alive.
But I don’t know, I don’t know why:

Funny how,
When the darkest of nights falls down.
Worry that I will never see.
The sun is shining again.

The world goes round,
What was up is again back down.
Wonder if I could stick around,
Feel the light of the day:

Sometimes I feel like I am,
Dying, down here.
I feel a raging storm,
Inside of my skin.
The dial tone is there
But no one’s calling…

I feel the weight of time,
Wonder when I will die.
But I don’t know, I don’t know why

Serenaded during dinner

Had the pleasure of having Justin Carter play live whilst Sarah and I had some delicious dinner in Torquay at Left off the Rocks.
Note – You should try the Vegi Burger (hold the Aioli).

He performs often with a full band as per this video, however we saw his two piece acoustic rendition of his album.

Was an immensely good night out.

I fell in love

With this guy and his dreamy dreamy voice.
We never caught his name.

It was like he could read my mind, every single cover he played was songs I knew and loved.
