up and down it all comes back around

By | May 7th, 2018|daily life, music, Turtle|

I knew that the CSIRO love vegetables, but my dinner tonight was next level. Haha. I feel like I have actually transformed into a floret of broccoli, hehe. This is about the extent that I will bite. I have no idea what the issue could be. And I feel like listening to the Eurogliders. It [...]

Paloma Faith – Only Love Can Hurt Like This

By | May 2nd, 2018|music|

I got hooked in to Paloma Faith through the song Only Love Can Hurt Like This , which must have got thrown up in one of my Spotify mixes. I have listened to her album - A Perfect Contradiction Outsiders' Edition around cocktail hour for a couple of evenings. I can never seem to get [...]

Le precipice – Daara J – So Frenchy So Chic

By | April 24th, 2018|holidays, music|

Speaking of world music, I was inspired to find the artist who is responsible for this amazing song on the weekend: Daara J. I found their song on one of the So Frenchy So Chic compilations and have always loved it. I really like their whole album - Boomerang, released in 2003. What did they [...]

Thando – NUMB – single launch – The Workers Club – Fitzroy

The Ting Tings – That’s not my name

By | April 16th, 2018|music|

Speaking of great upbeat songs with a bit of grit, someone reminded me of this song tonight. So good. I thought it deserved its own post. I want to pump it. It was released in 2007. That was a good vintage for music. Even though it was the cusp of my downfall. All's well that [...]

Music and words – take a left

By | April 16th, 2018|literature, music|

I am in a very verbal mood this evening. The left hand side of my brain has probably been activated by listening to my lecturer say interesting things for an hour, and now I want to delve into the world of words. I am not so interested in images at the moment, but music is [...]

The Eurogliders – The Spotted Mallard

By | April 15th, 2018|bars and restaurants, light art, music|

I don’t know why 80’s music often makes me think of Turtle. Maybe it just reminds me of the coast. That is the first feeling. Then I remember the feels from that era. Those stripy leggings. I am at the Spotted Mallard in Brunswick at a Eurogliders concert. A bit of nostalgia. Live music is [...]
