What-ho my faithful readers? No seriously, I'm consistently impressed with you for showing an interest in my life, even when I'm all mopey about it and talk in weird Charlie and Lola-style sentences. Good news for today is that things have been going pretty well the past few days and I have new things to report! "Good things" = "new things". That is the equation we use here.
I've been reading a junkload of Questionable Content lately, thanks to my friend James. I really identify with the main character, Marten. I even used to look like him back when I had black hair. I kind of miss my black hair. I might try it out again after VidCon. It will probably be temporary dye though, because growing out black hair is a total bitch.
I've been spending an embarrassing amount of time on Tumblr recently. My excuse is that it keeps me generally up-to-speed on internet culture. Like, who would have known Keanu Reeves was a meme now? I don't hang out on 4Chan and pretty soon I won't even be able to because of the Australian government censorwall, so this is a pretty good alternative to that. Plus, there's less porn. Usually. It also inspires me to make images like this:
and that's got to be a good thing, right? Um, Margaret Thatcher is now a meme. *cough*
Right now I'm listening to Mockingbird by Derek Webb. I mean, sure, I've been listening to Under Lights and Wires by Sandra McCracken pretty much nonstop this weekend, but I hung out with my friend Andrew today and we discovered a mutual love for Mockingbird, so I'm listening to it again, now.
Similarly, Webb's song American Flag Umbrella off his latest album, Stockholm Syndrome is ringing true with how I feel about Obama, even though I think it's really a song about American culture generally.
It's times like this I wish I knew how to play the guitar. I would completely thrash some soulful, protest folk right now.
OKAY WOW I did not actually talk about what I came here to talk about today. What I actually want to talk about is how I'm going to start volunteering at Juice 107.3 again. The Program Director sent me a Facebook message saying that if I come in for more training, I'll be able to have my own show. Huzzah on-air experience!
Also also VidCon is completely not very far away! It is sort of unnerving how not-far away it actually is. But first (the cat is just freshly out of its bag!) my Scottish friend Liam is coming to stay for a few days. I have to come up with lots of things to keep him occupied while he's here. I will probably take him up to Brisbane on my day off from work. Yesyesyes.
And that, I think, is a very good blog post.
