As usual its taken me almost a year to post my holiday photos online. I did take almost 4000……and i am queen of procrastinating so people should be greateful I did it in less than a year actually!
So my holiday was from Oct 19-Nov 20 2013. I travelled once more with my friend Grace.
Be warned – there are many pics of my fatass below the cut! Mum is always whinging I never take pics of myself on my holidays – so I tried to be in more this time….eww.
Diving into an Active Volcano from Sam Cossman on Vimeo.
This video is CRAZY!!
I seriously love pictures and video of lava…preferably slow moving lava…..but omg when you get the distance shot of the lil guy and the churning waves of lava are huge next to him….i would be freaking out!!!
But a part of me would still LOVE to do it!! So amazing!!!!
So I havent done one of these forever!
I finally made an effort on the weekend to check out 2ne1s new stuff from their new album.
I am in a dilemma over this song…I really like it all except for that weird discordant thing after the chorus they do. It really annoys me!!! Its a great song apart from that!
So either i will grow to love it despite that or I wont listen to it long term…..or maybe I will get some crappy sound editing program and see how it sounds when i chop it out! I have taken such extreme measures before!
On Sunday I downloaded the new album Crush from iTunes and it does have an unplugged version without that annoying part of the song, but I want the normal version without the dodgy bit! Why are you so cruel to me pop-gods?
And the strange ways of kpop – they released another song a few days later called Happy. Its a cute video and a nice lil song too.
Ooh!! A few days ago I saw there was a comp on the Marvel Australia and New Zealand facebook page to win tickets to a preview screening of Captain America:The Winter Soldier on March 31st. Of course I entered.
AND I WON!! I was so suprised! I rarely win anything!!!
Am looking forward to it. Which friend do I love enough to want to take with me though?
My lovely blog – I have neglected you again!!
I promise to blog more soon. If nothing else I need to do a massive post about my trip to the US last year. I had a 4 and a half week holiday and i have sooo many photos I still havent gone through, but if you do read my blog at all you know I take forever to do my trip reports anyway!
I am here today coz I wanna squeal with delight!!! One of my fave artists – Audrey Kawasaki – is selling a print this weekend – anyone can buy one during the sale period. I WILL FINALLY GET A PRINT OF ONE OF HER WORKS!!!
AND its payday on Friday so I wil definately have money when it goes on sale!!
i tried to bid for one I saw on ebay recently but i had limited funds and quickly got outbid. Sadness.
But loooooook – it shall be mine!!!
Alright enough nonsense. Hopefully my next blog post will be of substance….
On Wednesday night there was a special screening of The Hobbit in Sydney at the Hayden Orpheum at Cremorne, and beforehand Richard Armitage (Thorin Oakenshield in the movie for those who dont know, also my crush since 2009!) was there for a talk. It was so exciting to see him in real life!!!
They rushed him out of there afterwards so we couldnt get autographs or pictures but i took a TONNE of pics during the event.
I posted the pictures over on my tumblr (they only allow 10 pictures per post), plus a lil 2 min video I took near the end. They are all under this tag on my tumblr blog, but I thought I would also post a few pictures here too! Enjoy!
Got my hair dyed and cut at Furr again. Alwyn my stylist is AWESOME! That is all!
I’ve been naughty. I decided this month to pay off an extra chunk on my personal loan so it will be fully paid in a couple of months instead of like 4-5, and I had to pay the second amount I owed to my friends dad coz I bought this HUGE ASS tv from them because she was moving overseas.
So really – i shouldnt have wasted any more money. Oops.
First – one of my fave artists I have found online – Alice X. Zhang – was having a free shipping deal from her Society 6 shop this weekend on all her art. I have been eyesing so many of her pictures for so long, but I decided on 2 of her Spirited Away ones:
Then GODDAMNIT!! Last week sometime Ript Apparel was showing some up and coming possible tshirt designs on facebook (if you dont know they sell a deisgn on their site for only 24 hours and then never again). And this one made me laugh so much I totally wanted it!! Anyways it went on sale and i HAD TO BUY IT!!
Then just 10 mins ago I was reading my emails and ASOS had sent an email with a 20% off discount code for St Patricks Day so i had to go buy something… >.<
I didnt buy these coz of St Pats….that is my favourite colour and if I could have every piece of clothing I own be that colour I fricking would!!
Lets not discuss the fact I also ordered some stuff from Torrid last week, ok? I am an idiot! Paypal and my credit card are dangerous things!
Feed (Newsflesh Trilogy 1) by Mira Grant
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
One of the people on Tumblr had been reading this and posting about how awesome it was. A month or so after that idecided to read it. Now as a horror genre – I am not into zombies AT ALL! But I like some of the recent takes on the genre, and this was definately a good one.
I think a combination of the blogging world, and also the scientific reason explained for the zombie outbreak were the main reasons I enjoyed this.
I did find that things were repeated a few times during the book, but I put it down to the world building going in….I think the author might have thought you forgot things so mentioned it again.
Oh and can I say I was crying my eyes out near the end of the book. If you have read it you will understand. I was so surprised!
Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, Book 3) by Suzanne Collins
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Been sporadically jumping in and reading the Hunger Games books but i kept getting distracted by other things. I had read so many spoilers on Tumblr that I mostly knew who lived and died and what not, but I am still annoyed about Prim and Finnick!!! >.<
Overall I liked them. Katniss, I seriously wanted to slap her up the side of the head at times, but what can you do? She wasnt as annoying as Bella. So I guess thats a win. haha
The Iron Duke (A Novel of the Iron Seas)
by Meljean Brook
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I definately liked the world it was set in. One of the better steampunk books I’ve read. And the best that is a steampunk romance book.
But I dont know – I found the Iron Duke himself a little annoying, and also Mina takes forever to explain why she thinks they cant be together and that was bugging me the entire book.
But I was definately fascinated by the world so I do want to read more.
