Endless hours of fun at this site, especially, if like me, you are entranced by the idea of 'The Perfect Mix-Tape'...

"No, no use in taking their time or in wasting two dimes
On a call to God knows who
When all you feel is the rain and it's hard to be vain
When no person looks at you
So just be gracious and wait in the queue
So when do I get to sing "My Way"?
When do I get to feel like Sinatra felt?
When do I get to sing "My Way"?
In heaven or hell...?"

"You are just a tenant here, you say
living in and out of this life
as cheaply as you can.
I sit here in the darkness
Like an old woman
Thoughts knot and click like brittle bones
doing too much
Trying to question all of this
Trying so hard to fade out
in the blackness
all of the fear
all of the tears that bring us to this..."
Anne Clark, "The Sitting Room" (1982)

A quick mention for the newly resurgent force-to-be-reckoned-with on the Perth ska-punk scene, 6nd Tryout (Is there a ska-punk 'scene' in Perth?!?)
Anyway, watch out for these guys pogoing in a sweaty club near you soon. You'll need to brush up on those bar-chords, Dave...

Sunday night's Firework concert in Princes Street Gardens was a spectacular event for the thousands present watching... and the thousands of others who were startled/woken up/otherwise roused by the tremendous explosions from the sky!
The highlight was undoubtedly the incredible heart-shaped fireworks which you can see here:
There you can also listen to a bit of the concert (with all the bangs) which someone has sneakily recorded...

"Now he wants her to dress as if you couldnt guess,
He desires to impress his associates,
But he's part ugly beast and hellenic deceased,
So she finds that the mixture is hard to deny.
What shall we do, what shall we do with all this useless beauty?
All this useless beauty"
