The headliners are just as shit as they have been for years imo. They’re recycling previous Splendour/ Big Day Out line ups yet again, I’m 99% sure that Foster the People have played it 3 times in the last 4/5 years but maybe I’m combining Splendour with BDO in my head lol. But like why tha fuck did Mumford and Sons headline last year, fair enough when they did it in 2011 or whenever but yeah, second time made no sense to me. I guess it’s pre cool that they got Outkast this year, they must have known they needed to step it up like when they got Kanye y’know. They must be paying Outkast a fuckload ha.
For the past few years there have only been about 5 bands each year midway down the line up which I’d be keen to see but I haven’t actually been since I was like 18. I dno if that’s cos the line up was better then or if I just had different pre-internet-influenced *teen gurl* taste in music. Probably the latter.
If I can get a free/cheap ticket this year I’ll go tho to see bae and a few others but otherwise can naahhht afford it/justify paying that much for 5 bands.
Pretty much sums up my thoughts hey. Looking at the line-up, there’s only 3 bands I haven’t seen before that I’d like to (London Grammar, Future Islands, Mikhael Paskalev), and none of them are Splendour exclusives so I’m hoping to catch them in side shows.
Tonight in the continuing adventures of PSB aka Melbourne Boy, we had a really good conversation about life and relationships and where we’re at and where other people are at and what’s going on and though it could have gone really terribly and become super awkward, I actually got a lot of answers to questions I had vaguely formed but didn’t know I was so eager to know the answers of and he just provided them all without much prompting so that was nice.
Attraction is a funny thing.
I Want You to Want Me - Letters to Cleo
I’m about to watch 4x14, which apparently is an episode no-one is ok with. And it’s 12:30am here and I’m kinda exhausted, but let’s give this a go.
The Mountain Goats playing on The Walking Dead is possibly the most perfect thing about this show.
Struggling through first hangover in 3 years. Urgh. At least it’s a little bit hilarious?
So dinner was pate, blue vein cheese, Camembert, crackers, blueberries, strawberries, green grapes, and a glass of red.
I was greeted by a Haigh’s chocolate on my desk this morning, and soon after, an email arrived which read:
Yes, I ‘accidentally’ visited Haighs on my way home from dinner last night - in addition to the small starter chocolates on your desks, there are also mini Haighs eggs in the green bowl in front of Malcolm’s desk!
