Active Child @ the OAF in Sydney


wow what can I say?.. incredible... FKING INCREDIBLE!!!!!

Pat Grossi AKA Active Child delivers and delivers superbly! I have, since discovering this awesum talent from a blip buddy, loooved his music but to hear him live was quite the experience. He actually exceeded my expectations as I was imagining hitting the high notes would be difficult during a live performance & he wouldnt sound as he normally does.

HOW WRONG WAS I??!!??

He utterly blew me away.

That voice.. that harp.. the spacy synthy filled sounds makes for a ravishing listening experience. The kind U would put on when in that dreamy state.. ready to be elevated to celestial proportions.. I read that his ethereal voice can be attributed to his childhood years of being a choir boy. Interesting!

and OMG that harp! when he strummed it ever so gently he was sending shivers down my spine and tingles in private places. I have never heard a harp being played live like that. Soothing yet sensual at the same time.. he stunned the crowd.

His performance has to be one of the best ive seen. Totally breathtakingly beautiful and atmospheric. The venue, the OAF [The Oxford Art Factory], was a snazzy lil funky place that surprized me. Its been ages since ive been anywhere near Oxford St & certainly its been my first time there. But I did enjoy it and it didnt lack any of the intimacy bigger venues do. Not that this is a big venue, no, but a place either clicks and sets the atmosphere for the performance or is a dump, and the OAF is definitely fantastic!

oh btw if U ever get the chance to visit the OAF.. make sure U try a "Sex Punch" lol.. [yes they are licensed premises] a yummy concoction of OJ, champers, vodka, lemonade, crushed ice, pineapple.. its kinda like an adults version of a slurpy lol.. & goes down well on a warm summer eve listening to your fave music

below are a few pics [OMG look at that HARP!!] and a compilation playlist [6 videos in total] of a few songs from that night... ENJOY!!

everything was so beautiful

Flowers for us Pictures, Images and Photos

I remember the day when everything was so beautiful,
Without a care or worry in the world,
Neverending sun & laughter,
Then the turning point,
I couldn’t even see
I fell in love with a feeling,
and it changed the world for me,
Confused & poised with such
Poisonous stares & accusations
Of vicious precarious emotions
Beating against me like fists of a madman,
My love,
We need to regress to see
The damage we are causing
I could not bear to part with you
Under the dark embrace of this hell
So I let my mind go
Back to my subdued thoughts
That calm me & rationalise me
Perhaps then safety will
Put the smile back on my face
I love you too much to not want that

The Hoffster

the day before my birthday last Wednesday the 18th Jan I took myself off to see the Hoffster AKA David Hasselhoff at Sydney Park who was posing with doggies and their owners all for a good cause "The Starlight Childrens Foundation"

I havent even been to that park before even tho its around 15 mins away from me!

The sun was beating down the queue was growing and those who wanted their pic taken with the Hoffster paid $100 which included a doggie wash & massage for poochy. There were many different characters roaming the park including 'Dicko' from ex Australian Idol.. stand up comedian Vince Sorrentti & several who were dressed the same as them but couldnt recognise..even Batman & Joker made an appearance!

The Hoffster was looking a lil jetlagged but that didnt stop him.. and a few even shouted out "Are U jetlagged Hoff?" to which he replied: "The Hoff is never jetlagged!" I was told he is nearly 60 which when youre up close to him U can tell.. still he had an energetic nature about him & that Hoffster charm

The highlight of that day was when I had finished filming at the top of the hill then came down & was preparing to leave when suddenly the Hoff & those around him changed into high heels lol & began strutting their stuff lol

Who could resist such a laugh?

Ended up with a great deal of sunburn that day esp round the shoulders arms & back of the neck which served as a reminder of Hoffday. Afterwards I took a leisurely stroll up King all the way to Newtown & marvelled at the exquisite furniture shops along the way.. most of em middle eastern/vintage.. wow that was a blast.. & came across this cabinet record player that I fell in love with!

below is a compilation playlist of the videos I filmed [6 in total!] & a slideshow of the piccies

ENJOY!

I miss U my dear friend

I miss you Pictures, Images and Photos

feelings touching the depths
of my fragile being.
my precious darling,
your presence is everywhere,
I cannot escape you
even if I tried.
the compromise of body & mind
unlocking secrets within.
Im looking at you,
unplugging yourself
are U longing to breathe? as I am?
2 fragile souls,
worlds apart,
yet invisibly drawn.
I miss the simple things the most.
closing my eyes,
im stuck at that place
if only for a moment
and feel such joy.
then there are no walls
no barriers
just the rawness
of you
I miss U my dear friend

Coffs Harbour
