Australia Day in Mother England

Australia Day in Mother England

I like to think that I adapt to new surroundings fairly quickly. A year has gone by and I already feel like I have been in London forever. On most days, London feels like home. However, now and then I forget I’m in London. It’s usually when I am brought back to reality after being … Continue reading

Worst Girls Aloud Concert Ever

To the losers who couldn’t wait two hours and smoked in my face in a smoke-free venue To the ignorant losers who yelled “what’s this shit, play your old stuff!” while we rocked out to Colosseum. To the fucker who threw a pint of beer in my face when they started the last song. NONE … Continue reading

Joni in the Moon

I haven’t really written as many posts about home as I thought I would. This blog is supposed to be about my time in London, after all. And generally it is, in a round-about way, although I do love to wander off topic now and then. Still, there are plenty of things happening back home … Continue reading

Festival Fiends: Top 5

Festival Fiends: Top 5

I’ve been out of action over the last week as I had a rather annoying experience in Ibiza involving a scooter, the bitumen and the left side of my body.

Jigsaws Falling Into Place

I’ve been off the grid for a few days because JD and I have lived it up in Sunny Spain, or as the locals call it, Euskal Herria (they were protesting for independence from their Spanish Oppressors during our stay). We have spent the last few days soaking up rays in Bilbao and San Sebastian, … Continue reading

Festival Frivolity: Top 5

Festival Frivolity: Top 5

Waaaaaay back in March 2012, I wrote a blog post outlining my TOP 5 reasons that I moved to London. At the time, I envisaged the TOP 5 to be a regular weekly series outlining my (wait for it) TOP 5 picks, opinions, or beliefs on a variety of topics. It would be the zany, … Continue reading

Sunday Music Jam: Zou Bisou Bisou

Sunday Music Jam: Zou Bisou Bisou

Next week I am going to live it up with the celebrities in the French Riviera. What better way to celebrate my inaugural Cannes Film Festival stalker fest than to play the amazing Mad Men re-imagining of the 60’s yé-yé hit, Zou Bisou Bisou. Hit it, Megan!

Sunday Music Jam: Morning Light

Sunday Music Jam: Morning Light

The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, there’s not a cloud in the sky, and I am heading into work. On a Sunday. And yet I walk down the broken streets of East London with a beaming smile, a strut in my step and a gleeful wink for passersby. Why? On this day of days, one … Continue reading
