island vibe

ok, so, the weekend...went to the island vibe festival on straddie.
it was extremely fun and full of at least three new experiences

some of the bands i saw:

During the last 12 years The Bird have established a solid reputation as one of Australia’s finest
live electronic dance outfits, and in the studio have continued to push musical boundaries. Primarily a live band, The Bird have developed a nationwide following for their brand of uptempo and dynamic performances.> awesome drum beats, great to dance to!

Beware all ye who enter into the sphere of the Voodoo Circus, blood, nudity, zombies, fire, rum & Caribbean beatniks!! Spawned in the grottoes of Melbourne & swampy outskirts of Brisbane a motley crew of abstract shaman hipsters took the form of Voodoo Circus. Compromised of zombie acrobats, headless burlesquers, sacrificial virgins & the occasional possessed dancer, the Island Vibe performances promise to be the most sacrilegious & chaotic the Circus has undergone. Expect the unexpected, see the unseeable, dance the undanceable VOODOO CIRCUS.

> i only have one word to say...FREAKY FREAKY FREAKY!! i got fake blood on my cardigan and am pretty sure i squeezed the life out of sam's hand.


time to grow up

Do you remember...

When your best friend became your worst enemy?
When lollipops turned into cigarettes?
When the innocent ones turned into sluts?
When homework started going in the trash?
When mobile phones began to be used in class?
When detention became suspension?
When soda became vodka?
When bikes became cars?
When undies turned into g-strings?
When kisses turned into sex?

Do you remember...

When getting high meant swinging on the playground?
When protection meant wearing a helmet?
When the worst things you could get from boys were cooties?
When Dad’s shoulders were the highest place on earth and Mum was your hero?
When your worst enemies were your siblings,
and when race issues were about who ran the fastest?

When war was only a card game.
When the only drug you knew was cough medicine.
When wearing a skirt didn’t make you a slut.
When the only things that hurt you were skinned knees,
and goodbyes only meant until tomorrow?

And yet we couldn’t wait to grow up...
