New Digs

So, after what seems like forever looking I'm moving this weekend. EEEeeeep! I still have a butt load of stuff to pack. Probably just as much to throw away. How on earth I ended up with all this stuff is beyond me. I mean I threw a heap away last time I moved. But there still seems to be stuff in cupboards I haven't looked at in years.
Oh well, I hoping to have everything done by Thursday night.

Wish me luck!

My landlord has decided that he's going to renovate my apartment so I have to move. Initially this news really pissed me off, I mean I went through the inconvenience of it being on the market. Having people going through several times a week & for 30 mins on weekends for this? The real estate agents assured the new owner that I was willing to stay on. And they assured me that the new owner would let me stay. But after raising my rent 3 times (the last time on my birthday!) in the 8 or 9 months since he's had ownership he's now decided that he wants more.
Recently though it's starting to look more like a blessing. My upstairs neighbours are a massive pain in the arse (actually anyone who's ever lived in that apartment has being nothing else). Thinking that the walkway outside my place is part of their apartment. Heaps of chairs, pot plants and various other hideous shit has appeared and doesn't seem to be going anywhere. They also spend a massive amount of time stomping/scraping/thumping/scratching/slamming/vacuuming. Mostly late at night. Then there are the young families that seem to have appeared from nowhere. Don't get me wrong I don't mind children, but I LOVE sleeping in. Sadly those two things do not gel there's also an annoying loud bloke who lives in the house behind me now. I am not a fan of loud people.
Anyway on to new digs.


If I had kids, I'd totally buy this for them. Mostly for this image:

Sherlock Holmes

The new Sherlock Holmes looks great & seeing as the team behind the lastest Dr Who are involved I'm very much looking forward to watching it.
I still have a soft spot for Jeremy Brett's Holmes.

Hopefully it'll be worth waiting for.

I know where I'm going to be in a couple of weeks!

Friday, August 6, 2010


Last couple weeks I have been lacking sleep and not just because work has been insane (more so next week) & my stupid neighbours doing laundry at all hours. But because I've been to quite a few concerts.
Grizzly Bear
Hot Chip
LCD Soundsystem
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club


The problem with concerts is that I usually get surrounded by talkers, spastic dancers or smokers. Examples: Grizzly Bear = Spastic dancer, Hot Chip & LCD Soundsystem = Chain smoker, BRMC = Talkers + chain smokers, Fanfarlo = Talkers, Ash = Spastic dancers. All three types of people annoy the hell out of me. I kind of expect the spastic dancers, I mean I do have to keep an eye on their flailing limbs but other than that it's bearable. Smokers, well it's just shit to come home smelling like an ashtray because people feel the need to chain smoke indoors where they can get away with it. Then there are the talkers, for the life of me I will never understand the people who buy tickets to see a band whose music they supposedly enjoy. Yet while said band is playing they spend the whole evening talking about what Jonno did last weekend or how smashed they got at the last concert they went to, or some other inane shit that they have to yell in their mates ear because there is a band playing. I mean go to the bar, stay home if that's all you're going to do. Why waste money on concerts if you're not even going to listen to the music?
It's not like I stay in the same place for entire concerts either but as soon as I find somewhere nice, that I can see properly and hear clearly. These people always seem to find exactly the same spot and try to ruin my night. Sometimes they do.
