a sincere apology…

April 3, 2010

Dearest blog,

I am sorry. I am sorry for neglecting you these past few months. Truth be told, I’ve had more pressing (and interesting) things to do than updating you. That’s OK, you can hate me if you want. You see, between final-year uni, White Noise shenanigans, my new job as marketing assistant for QUT’s Creative Industries faculty, I just simply haven’t had the time. Not to mention the stupid tumblr I have to keep updating every week for my new media class (for anyone super-keen, you can check it out here).

Way back in the dark ages of 2008 when I first started you (despite numerous reincarnations, the name still stands- thanks Modest Mouse), I was full of hopes and dreams, and well- the belief that anyone would actually want to read what I have to say. Not that nobody does – thanks, 3 readers, you’ve been great – but you know what I mean. When I resurrected you last year amongst new-found career aspirations, I hoped I could make you into a little star of the local blogosphere- nothing amazing, but still something that was focused, and worth reading. While the latter may be questionable, I honestly did feel you helped me through my second-year uni blues.

Now blog, never fear- this is not the end. I just realise now that there are more important things than keeping you up-to-date. When I find something I actually want to write about- well, I’ll come crawling back. But until then, I don’t see much point in writing just for the sake of it. Until then, I feel I have ditched you for the ADHD-version of blogging: twitter. Since that has become all-consuming, I’ve found less and less reason to write here.

Anyway, dearest bloggy, I do hope you forgive me. Until next time!

Sincerely yours,

Will.

2010 in entertainment

January 10, 2010


Well, the silly season is over; the last of the champagne consumed, unwanted presents discarded and the reality of extreme amounts of food have well and truly set in. As we dive headfirst into 2010, there are already plenty of upcoming releases- music, television and cinematic- that are glimmering with promise . While so many of us seem to be still in nostalgia-town of 2009, here’s what I’m looking forward to in 2010.

It’s been a little while since I’ve updated this blog…unfortunately uni has taken over a little bit and I’ve hardly had time to breathe, let alone write anything. But never fear, 3 readers, holidays are almost upon us, and transmission will soon resume as normal!

In the meantime though, check out the latest showcase offering from Musicadium. This time around they’ve managed to score a prime Saturday night spot at Bar Soma in the valley, on the 3rd of October. Featuring on the evening will be Sietta (Melbourne), Brisbane’s own Felinedown, and ex-QUT student MC Castel. Closing out the festivities will be 3 ace DJs, including my fellow Musicadium Intern DJ Jane Doe!

Tickets are only $10 entry, and it all kicks off from 9pm, Saturday 3rd of October. For those of you playing at home that’s uni mid-semester break, so there is absolutely no excuse not to come! See y’all there.

And for the regulars, I’ll start posting things as soon as uni dies down a little bit.
