I Know


It’s 4 am, cold, windy and dark, with but this beer and cigarette keeping me company.
I should sleep but I want to write, I want to show you, I want to prove to you I’m not all sluttery, I’m not all disgrace and I won’t drown myself in my flailing failure of my morals. I will be better for you, my missing person, I will find you one day. I know I will, I am out every night staring at the dark sky waiting for a shooting star, using each and every one wishing for you.
You who’ll feel, smell and taste like home. Wherever you may be I hope you know, it shall be.

Yours the sweetly hopeful certain

Well Haven’t We Sold Out.


We’ve all heard of the reality shows, Australian Idol, American Idol, X-factor, etc, etc. Well just to clarify, I do not watch reality shows on a regular basis, I find them to be the worst of what the entertainment industry has to offer. But X-Factor happened to be on TV as my roommate and I were cleaning the house, even then the vacuum cleaner seemed to offer better entertainment, the way it sucks up all that dust and that irritating sound that it exudes is clearly untapped musical potential, makes me think I should enter it into the next X-factor.

I’m not saying all of them were horrid, but comeeeeeeee ooonnnn more boy groups, they used to be the butt of the joke in the 90’s! Yes these over-valued music companies fund these boy band cloning factories, its horrible, the most ludicrous thing I’ve ever seen on reality TV, ONE DIRECTION JUDGING THESE NEW “ARTISTS”, YES JUDGING. WHAT IN HOLY HELL HAS HAPPENED TO THE WORLD. This isn’t even the worst of it. I quote “One Direction the best boy band in the world”. Now there’s a perfectly normal English sentence.

Don’t even get me started on Kesha joining the freak show as a guest judge. I’ll let her music video explain(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iP6XpLQM2Cs). I’m sure that’s the most Auto-tuned song in the existence of Auto-tune. So obviously she makes peoples ears bleed.

If these are the “musicians” that the younger generation are idolizing, then what is to come of the real elbow grease, hard at it, back breaking artists who are doing it tough by working their way up, but have real musical talent, are they expected to sell out as well?

I guess I’m just disappointed in the music industries tapping into this “teenybopper” demographic, getting them hooked while they’re young and having no real clue what real musical talent is.
Well I’m also fed up of the constant commercialised music on radio, turning the car into a nightclub, It gets to the point that I would rather listen to the advertisement, or even better spending money on a sound system to hook up my Ipod to the car.

Well here’s a toast to the assassination of music as we know it!

Yours the firmly horrified

Just Smile.


The amazing yet scarred girls, ruined long before meeting me, seem to be my specialty. I get them, I try to understand and give support, not too much, but each time they slip through my fingers. Yep I can feel it happening again, they all drift away, eventually. But I’m not whining, this happens, a healthy relationship consists of two people’s choices, not one, yet still disappointing, at least I’m seeing this coming right?

Its been found in studies that the most creative of people find it easier, as well as produce some of the most amazing well known pieces when they’re in  negative states of mind. For example Charles Bukowski, his poetry, short stories, novels all surrounded the average lives of poor Americans, the act of writing, alcohol, relationships with women and the drudgery of work. Times magazine even described Bukowski as the “laureate of American lowlife”. Its as if Bukowski sacrificed happiness for this unmatched writing that has left behind a legacy of creative genius.

Learning of this apparent connection, I find myself realising that I only really write when I’m not feeling too happy with myself.

There’s only one thing I can focus on (besides the obvious uni, work, etc, etc) and that is being truthful to myself, expect less of others and appreciate more. I hate losing like everyone else does and quoting The Rolling Stones “You cannot always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you get what you need”

Now to talk this amazing girl and be told what I already know.

Yours sincerely the for once realist but learning just to smile

P.S I know I don’t deserve her. I’ve realised that.
