Hmmm.....

Turns out that the best way to make me blog again is to give me something else that i should be doing instead, and watch me procrastinate.

So.

Yeah.

404 days since my last post. Although my last one was one of those stupid quiz thingos, which doesn't really count. Which makes my last REAL post the 9th of November 2006. Woah.

Interestingly, in that Nov 2006 post, i claimed that i probably wouldn't post in here for like a year. Boy was i wrong! What a loser! Take that, self from 18 months ago!

So anyway, here's a brief rundown of shit:

Left Roxby

Moved to Perth to be close to pretty girl mentioned in previous post

Moved in with a guy i didn't really know

Got a job shifting boxes (on the plus side, this was the first job i'd ever gotten from a job ad in the paper, rather than through people i know. Go me!)

moved in with said pretty girl.

Quit full time work

Got offered part time work at my existing employer, rather than having to find another job

Enrolled in uni

Became awesome mature-age uni student, making bad experimental films and dispensing sage advice to my (much) younger student counterparts



So basically, everything rox0rs. I'm with the most awesome girl ever to walk the planet, i have a job that i'm good at that i actually enjoy quite a bit, and i'm doing HEAPS fun shit at uni. Good times.

Oh, also... (I wouldn't be me if i didn't put some sort of music reference in here somewhere)

"Colors" by 'Between the Buried and Me' is by far the BEST metal album to be released in the past couple of years, and is most likely somewhere on my top 5 list of all time. So fucking good it hurts.

So yeah. I'm surprised i didn't think of using the LJ as a form of time-wasting before now. No doubt i'll be using it again many times between now and when my course is done in 3 years time. You've been warned.


Boo ya.

Generally the right shoulder cops it first.

nope, that has never happened to me.

11. How many times have you been cursed at?

I believe i was 16. So that doesn't really count as before 16, does it? No, it doesn't.


17. Have you ever been cow-tipping or snipe-hunting?
I don't know what snipe-hunting is, but every young country lad worth his salt has been cow-tipping! Not for ages, tho...

Myself, and how awesome i am...

Because i was asked to!

yeah, i have a nasty habit of sticking things up there..

33. What is the stupidest thing you've ever done at a bar?
lol oh, i don't even know where to start...

34. Have you ever called your love interest by another girl/guy's name?

[music |Rags to Rags - Your Fringe, My Fist!]

THINGS I HAVE LEARNED SINCE I LAST POSTED IN THIS THING:

* Running away from your problems doesn't always make them go away, even if you move to the middle of the fucking desert

* Just because something seems to be working for everyone else, doesn't mean it's going to work for you

* Roxby Downs is the shittiest, most depressing place i've ever lived.

* Being paid a small fortune for work that's piss-easy doesn't mean shit if you don't like the work

* If you're getting paid a small fortune for work that's piss-easy, there's usually a very good reason

* Injuring yourself at work doesn't look good on your record

* Injuring yourself at work twice in four months looks even worse

* Ankle injuries are quite possibly the most annoying thing in the universe

* You never realise how much you rely on your feet until you can't use them

* If someone can invent a pair of crutches with a cup-holder built in, i will be your friend forever

* Sitting on your arse at home while being paid for it isn't nearly as exciting as it sounds

* Having surgery is nowhere near as scary as it sounds

* If it wasn't for the internet, there's a good chance i'd be in some form of mental facility by now

* I am a much bigger nerd than i first thought

* Much MUCH bigger

* I'm totally okay with that

* The number of awesome albums that have been released this year is staggering. Deftones, Converge, Blood Brothers, Lupe Fiasco, Macromantics, TV on the Radio, and Frenzal Rhomb have all released albums that i would consider to be album of the year.

* Meeting people on the internet may sound like the lamest, geekiest thing in the universe, but don't knock it till you've tried it! Who knows, you may even meet the coolest girl you've ever met in your life.

* Unfortunately, she may also live in Perth.

* Having someone who lives 3000km away may totally suck dogs balls, but as long as she makes you happy, that's all that matters, right?

* I have a feeling I may get to know the staff at the Adelaide and Perth airports VERY well over the next 12 months or so

* Even though i'm living in a shitty town, with a job i don't like, and i can't walk properly, i'm still the happiest i've been in a long time.


Hmm.. Wow. Whoever said you don't learn something new every day is a fuckhead.

There's a pretty good chance i won't post in here again for another 12 months. Oh well, never mind.

Interview Time! [May. 18th, 2005|05:22 pm]
rocknrolljoel
[mood |depresseddepressed]
[music |Norma Jean - Memphis will be laid to waste]

Everyone do this. It'll give me something to do.


1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

My questions from Dan

1. so, I guess you like driving?
Umm, i don't mind it. I certainly don't let it get in the way of me seeing awesome bands that are playing a long way away! Having said that, tho, next time i go to Coffs Harbour, i'm fucking flying.

2. beverage of choice?
Coopers Pale Ale. Beer of champions.

3. what's your favourite band
I don't answer questions like that. They're too hard. I have about 15 favourite bands, and they're always changing. At the moment i'm loving Norma Jean, Converge, Cog and Walk the Earth, to name a few. Then there's a few that remain perpetually awesome, such as Deftones, Frankenbok, Smashing Pumpkins, Nine Inch Nails, Pantera, etc. Hell, i love everyone!

4. tell me something good coming in Adelaide so I can come visit
Dude, everything about Adelaide is good. Wait, did i say good? I meant shitty and boring. I'm sure there'll be some awesome gig coming up shortly tho, that u can come over for.

5. How good was that night in Coffs
It was fucking tops! Many good memories: sneaking alcohol past the hotel staff and into our room, forcing Mikbok into that locker, getting blind with the Frankenbok boys. Good times. One thing i'd rather forget was the hangover i had the next day, when i had to drive the 2000km back to Adelaide. I could've done without that, to be honest.


Well that's that. Make sure u reply to me, so i can give u questions. I promise they'll be better than Dans :P

[music |Converge - My Great Devastator]

OK so i forgot i had one of these. Then like 3 ppl have mentioned it in the past 24 hours, so i've decided to start using it again! If only i could come up with something interesting to write.

Work today was fine. Except i was sick for most of the morning. And i got my arms ripped to shreds by canes from riding through them at crazily high speeds. And i got kind of burnt. And it was bloody hot. So really, work was gay! Damn work to hell.

i think i'll post this thing that Dan asked me to post. It's a bit late, but it's the thought that counts!



Total volume of music files on my computer? 2.15 Gb. Most of my tunes are on CD. i buy my music legitimately!!!


The last cd i bought was...
I don't think i bought a CD at all last weekend (shock horror) So it'd be Norma Jean - Bless the matyr and kiss the child. I also bought COG - the new normal at the same time, so those 2 are tied for the lead!

The last song i listened to before writing this was... Evergreen Terrace - Sunday Bloody Sunday


Song playing right now... Ministry - Jesus Built My Hotrod


Five songs I listen to a lot or that mean a lot to me

Blind Melon - No Rain
Smashing Pumpkins - Through the Eyes of Ruby
Johnny Cash - The Man Comes Around
Walk the Earth - the Give-take Embezzlement
Cog - Charades


Five albums I listen to a lot or that mean a lot to me
Snot - Get Some
Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream
Frankenbok - Blood Oath
Damaged - Do Not Spit
NWA - Straight Outta Compton



which five people are you passing this baton to, and why?

Umm, i don't think i know 5 people's LJ's! How about....
Kas!
Amy!
Dylan! (if he ever finds my LJ
Ok that's 3. That'll do. I wish i knew how to put links to ppl's pages in here, but i don't. I'll make someone tell me one day!
