I'm a Melbournite Now

Hey fellow bloggers, I hope everyone is well. Once again it's been a bit of a gap between posts. Unfortunately a little while ago my Laptop's charger decided to shit itself and so not long after my last post I had to order a new one and so couldn't charge my laptop...and yeah obviously that meant I couldn't use it. So for the past however long I've been spending my time at home playing chess and listening to music. Luckily I received my new one today and all is right again in this Melbourne household.

My first point today is in regard to Voltaire's new album, Riding A Black Unicorn Down the Side of An Erupting Volcano While Drinking From a Chalice Filled the Laughter of Small Children; who's got it?

I've been listening to it pretty much constantly since the day it was released. I quite like it, given not as much as other stuff by our precious goth Lord but still...It has his usual charm :) I normally give new albums a month of listening before I make a decision...It's quite a technical process :P This though is mainly for albums I don't like immediately, if I like them to begin with it's not like I have to keep pondering it...

Furthermore it's less than a week till Black Milk brings out their Halloween Collection; eeep! I'm already so poor. I'm thinking of selling off of few of my newly acquired things 'cause I know there will be many spooky things I'll have to own from this one :D

Here are my BM legbones, to get you all in the mood :D

So fellow darklings, as of this Saturday I will have been living in Melbourne for a whole month! And what have I to show for it...Sigh, since moving I've felt a little melancholy I admit. I have no friends here, no money to go to all the venues and events I want to and no real reason to leave the house. I do of course, because when I didn't I started to go mad(der). My housemate is amazing and sweet and everything, but she has her own life and is constantly busy with school work and when she's not doing that she's working at her part-time job. I've applied for over 100 jobs and haven't heard anything, it's the most depressing thing ever. Sigh. Sorry for the rant, I miss being my chipper self but at present I feel a real lack of purpose. It seems with work I have money and the fact that I work makes me feel I deserve fun which makes me RSVP to anything and everything I can. On the upside I'm really fucking good at Chess now.


In other news the amazing boots I pre-ordered LAST FREAKIN' YEAR are finally in the post on their way to me.

Don't worry, with this distinct lack of life I currently have there will be plenty of opportunity for photo taking in them!

Oh! And on Monday I received this lovely little care package from one of ma' besties, Gracie!

So many useful things; and all green! :D Spaghetti, recipes, cups, sprinkles, hair wax, turkish delight, a kinder surprise, a pen in the shape of a lizard, a mini-sewing kit, pocky, a fold up bag...and that's all I can remember. Thanks lovely!

Speaking of green, here's a craptacular shot of how my awesome green glitter lava lamp thing turns my room into a borg cube :D

Love that shit.

Oh and here's a shot I grabbed whilst I was walking down Chapel St the other day

I love rams and I love that Melbourne has so much cool street art. Maddy, my room mate and I wanna go on one of those tours of the city that show you them.

Anyway that's just about it for tonight/this morning...

Before I finish with this post I just wanted to convey my sympathies to the friends and family of CookingChinchillas. Although I didn't know her very well, I regularly read her blog and she was close to some I hold dear to me. You were a lovely, talented lady and you will be sorely missed. :(

...For All it's Worth

Yes that's right it's another post about Black Milk, because this Fairy is obsessed.

Some pics I took to photobomb the fan page.

Boots: Demonia

More Random Pics From My Phone

I know some might not find this as exciting as others, but other than leaving chunks of boring text I don't really know how to update on what's been going on... >.>

Mug sent to me by Directions for being awesome! :D The icon isn't there till you put hot water in the mug.

Taken today, me wearing my elf crown :D


New Black Milk goodness

Visiting my new friends, Mark and Sarah

Me; eyebrowless at Mark and Sarah's

Ellie and me :)

Playing chess with Maddy, my housemate.

I regularly make study-break pancakes for Maddy and I at like..3 in the morning :P

This cool little alt theatre just down the street from my house that plays awesome old movies and horror-filled recent ones!

Also I just wanted to say that if you leave feedback more towards the negative scale, could you please comment to suggest something else for me to do or what you didn't like about the post? I know it's silly but I feel like if this isn't done that someone out there is anonymously criticising me rather than presenting constructive criticism nicely. I get a little disheartened by it :(

Catching Up On Lost Time

Though I might post some pics from my iphone that have been taken over the past few weeks whilst I've been living in Melbourne to catch you guys up on what the go is :)

Tea and cake for my birthday/going away with Gracie's mother and sister i.e. my extended family :)

Just before I set off on the long lonngggg drive. My hopeless GPS and my little chicks that kept me company :)

My first shop! Haha the toilet paper, it's a bit of a running joke between my new housemate; Maddy, and I.

FUCKKKK YEAHHHHHHHHH! This made my day/week/month/whatever. So freakin' happy. Just wish Pottermore would sought out it's bugs. I'm quite apt at potion making, but every time I go to move it to the brewed section, it just takes me back to the start. So annoying.

Cam whoring whilst I waited outside for my life to a 21st.

Contrary To Popular Belief...

I'm not dead...As the dead can't die :D tehehehehehe

Sorry about the lack of posting guys. For those of you who don't already know a few weeks ago I moved states! I now live in the lovely city of Melbourne, recently voted the most liveable city in the world! ...Although I dunno :P So far I've managed to score myself around $200 bucks worth of fines. Okay, yes the first one was warranted as I parked in a paid parking zone; but the second was a crock of shit! It was for 'Parking within 10 metres of an intersection'

...If everybody obeyed this rule (which I didn't know was a rule) you wouldn't be able to park anywhere on the street pretty much because there's little narrow dead ends going off in every direction. I was parked about 3 metres from the edge of an intersection to a dead-end that has one house in it. I wasn't in any way impeding traffic! FFS! And, who writes a ticket at 2:30am in a quiet suburban street?! Fucking Nazis.

Anyway, now that my rant is out of the way I'll show you some pictures of my new room!

The room I'm subletting off a friend whilst she's overseas, so I've got till the end of November to find myself somewhere else.

Listening to: The Great Depression - Aesthetic Perfection

p.s. Aesthetic Perfection's new album is out in the near future!!! Yayyyyayayayayayay
