On my weekend's and during spare time, I love to make the most of what our brilliant city has to offer; whether it's out at a local gig at one of the many great pubs around, band rehearsal, digging for more records/vinyl, a relaxed bar/pub (super late night's are largely behind me..), great cafes/coffee, a day trip out somewhere scenic, flea markets, cheering on and/or bemoaning my blue baggers, or just taking time to enjoy the simple activities..
- spending too much time on discogs
- having a sound knowledge of music
- making very good cups of tea
- Curating awesome party music
- playing councillor to family/friends
Film wise? Love arthouse/independent stuff, foreign films/doco's. A few that recently grabbed me: Amy, Iris, Birdman.
Food? // Italian, Mehican, Thai, Vietnamese, Jap... Recently began making Sushi.. dumplings are a hit. I am convinced banh mi makes the weak strong again.
Music // Just some goodness.. Massive Attack, The Pixies, The Stone Roses, Led Zeppelin, Portishead, You Am I, Obligatory 60s stuff (beatles, stones, who etc), Miles Davis, Coltrane, Nick Drake/Cave, Fairport Convention..beastie boys, phillip glass, the national.
Lots of local good stuff too (HTRK, Beaches, Melb Ska Orchestra...)
adequate caffeine intake
music - instruments/records
What other attempts at dialogue/retorts to put into this dialogue box..
You too, would like to attempt a quest to find the best Banh Mi, vinyl record stockists in Melbourne.
The rest? Let's wait and see..
