Dreams by the Cranberries

Oh my life is changing everyday

In every possible way

And oh my dreams

It’s never quite as it seems

Never quite as it seems

I know I felt like this before

But now I’m feeling it even more

Because it came from you

Then I open up and see

The person falling here is me

A different way to be

I want more, impossible to ignore

Impossible to ignore

And they’ll come true

Impossible not to do

Possible not to do

And now I tell you openly

You have my heart so don’t hurt me

You’re what I couldn’t find

A totally amazing mind

So understanding and so kind

You’re everything to me

Oh my life is changing everyday

In every possible way

And oh my dreams

It’s never quite as it seems

‘Cause you’re a dream to me

Dream to me


Music Sunday – “Losing You” by Solange

Liked this for the song, then I liked this for the video. Then I liked this for both. Also reminds me of two dogs dancing to it (unknowingly to them, though when I was walking along the street listening to it, they pretty much were).

Stand Close to Poles at Concerts.

I have worked out a system. This system involves getting to a standing room only gig and finding a pole, pillar or really tallĀ vending machine (though the vending machines arent usually located that commonly in front of the stage). The reason behind this is, it prevents most of the annoying issues with other people at live gigs.
1) People trying to push ahead of you. They cannot, asĀ a pole doesnt move (Unless it does move).

2) For those moments where the best song comes on and you want a better view, you can go on tip toe and lean your heels against the pole for support.

3) If you want to take a great unblurry photo with longer exposure, you can lean your camera against the pole.

4) Great spot to tell friends where you are at (I am next to the pole).

5) You can stick a “I love you” sign to the pole for the Artist to see.

6) You can attach spikes to the pole, and climb them, being able to see more than just hipster guy’s smelly hat in front of you. Wear undies though.

7) You can dress the pole up, if you are going to the gig alone. People will then not think you are alone.

8) Further to the dressing up of the pole, you can attach speakers and a playback device of you and the pole singing the band’s biggest hits.

9) Depending on the width of the pole, explain the heritage of where it came from to those around you.

10) There is a natural inclination to avoid poles, so less crowded.

Thats the system, and I stick to it.

Thankfully last night I went to a gig with friends. And I found the pole and used it for many of the above reasons. The gig was Cosmo Jarvis at The Corner Hotel in Richmond. It was a last minute decision, as I thought he had already finished touring. He is a special artist to myself and my fella, as two of his songs have strong happy memories for us. The first one being when he cheered me up by performing the Gay Pirates Song over Skype, when my flight had been cancelled on the way to visit me. It was one of those moments where I knew he was bloody fantastic.

The other song is more recent, with the words Cosmo performs, is about talking directly to God. Questioning and venting where he is at and how he feels. Naturally I relate to a lot of it. So much uncertainty and so much past pain, where the simplicity of who “God” is, never seemed to be there.

Cosmo also may just be a tad cute. My mate Dale may have become one of those crazy obsessed fans last night, adding his surname to Cosmo’s.
