Progressive Rocking

3 Apr

8:15-ishpm – heading out. Am wearing funny contact lenses; paranoid I look silly. Combat this by listening to Satyricon REALLY LOUD on the tram. Nobody sits next to me.

9:00pm – meet Nath and Aaron at Fed Square. Am only person at ACMI not wearing black. Feel out of place; want to take off pink scarf.

9:15-ishpm – waiting. Nervous, excited. Nathan makes fun of hipsters, I cringe because I probably l0ok like one. Aaron and I devise a tumblr-type blog where we photoshop corpse paint onto vapid celebrities.

9:30pm – film starts. Australian premiere of Until the Light Takes Us. Yes, YES. I am only girl there who isn’t a total retro vixen or deluxe goth – I am dressed in my usual, like a whimsical hippy hobogan (yes, I just coined that word).. feeling like a loser, but excited nonetheless.

Some time later:pm  – oh yes. I am in love with: Varg, Dead, Satyr (again), Frost (slightly), Fenriz and Faust.. Passionate idealism is so so so attractive…

Some time in between – we go to Beer Deluxe. I drink Franziskaner Hefferweisse and Fuller’s Organic Honey Dew ale. 2 pints of beer versus 50kg of girl….. tanked. Unfortunately. I was trying so hard to maintain a facade of awesomeness, which failed as I brought out gems like “perhaps black metal arose as an expression of disillusionment, alienation and despair; for these teenagers, exploring the ‘underculture’ of everything they were conditioned to loathe was their only solace when the idyllic society revealed its flaws”. I am so intellectual.

2:00am-ish – in the car listening to Bathory and King Diamond all the way home. Feeeeeel sick. We stop at McDonalds and they won’t let me in because it’s too late. BASTARDS> Yay – petrol station bathroom loves me.

2:something – we’re home. Posie loves me.

2:34am – I spill flour all over my laptop while trying to make waffles . Woah – milk – possibly a bit more dire than flour. Am drurnk. Am also worried – was folllowing waffle recipe that seems to have disappeare3d from my browser. Flying solo now, I guess.

Laterish.am – Waffles eaten. I am tired. I steal Nath’s Mayhem t-shirt and go to   bed.

Uma? Ummmm..

28 Mar

It amuses me to no end that Uma Thurman’s new film made £88 on its first weekend released in Britain; £9 on Sunday, meaning one person went to see it. Tragic or lol? – you decide!
Personally, I couldn’t really care less about seeing the story of “an ordinary housewife”. Is she actually a spy? Is her house built on a cemetery, about to transform into a portal from hell and swallow her kids? Is Uma going to explore female identity as it relates to her character as well as a wider social consciousness, then have her hand amputated and replaced with a ray gun? … if no, then that’s my answer too.

Tonight I’m going to make Taipei American School-style nachos – that basically involves scooping cheese spread out of a jar, microwaving and eating it, slathered on corn chips with salsa. Oh yeah. Then I shall don hot pink explorer socks and oversized pajamas, listen to the Spice Girls while I cruise interior design/style blogs. It’s okay, I’d be jealous too.

Today’s post is brought to you by:
– Country House by Blur
– All Mine by Portishead, and..
– Expectations by Belle and Sebastian
