I bought the new White Stipes album today. I'm up to track two at the moment, and so far it's pretty good, but I've only really heard good reviews about it so I doubt I'll be dissappointed with my choice. I've had $25.80 to spend at myer/coles/vintage cellars/virgin for ages now so I finally had like 5 CD's on my list to buy, so thats what I did this afternoon. Fun stuff. I was in myer/virgin music dept and just as I handed over my $1.15 to buy the CD i heard the familiar sounds of the stomps and claps of catch my disease, by Ben Lee come across the system, and the check-out chick starts bopping away and she goes "oh I love this song, the guy is so cute!" and I'm like "ahhh... right, like i've never heard that before" - you see, EVERYONE tells me how much they are digging Ben's new song. And people tell me if they've heard it on the radio - what do they expect me to do? Shower them with gifts? Sure, the lady in myers didn't know that I am in love with Ben Lee and his totally rad music. Maybe I should get a T-Shirt that says "Don't talk to me about Ben Lee!" or even better, one of those T-Shirts that say "BAN BEN LEE!!!" - there is this group of people in Sydney that I pity... they hate Ben Lee so much, they make petitions to get Ben Lee banned on commercial radio. Funny stuff. It obviously hasn't done much as like 2 weeks ago "Catch my Disease" was the most played song on Australian radio.
I saw so many people randomly that I knew in the city, weird because it was a school day and most of the people I saw were supposed to be at school. But I did find a friend I never knew I had. It's funny how you just have pre-concieved ideas of a person, but really, when you get talking with them, they are this complete opposite to what you imagined. Thats what happened today, the train was a bit late, so naturally at 5.00pm on a wednesday, Platform 7 at Flinders St was packed, so i sat down, and this "random" sat down next to me, neither of us looked at each other, but when she went to look out the window she saw who I was and she's like "oh, hey emma!" and naturally, I'm like what the crack? why are you here? I don't like you, get away! But we were talking from Richmond through to Middle Brighton when we got off and she offered me a lift home.
So, did anyone go to the courses afternoon? I wanted to see the guest speaker? Declan right?
Hmmm ya. Until next time when I publish, which will probably be tomorrow.
