Always ones own worst critic.

- I am.

On show.
You’ll judge,
But I’ll grow.

- Lahlia is me.

Trust in oneself.
Own instincts.
Own beliefs.

- This is mostly me..

Have a look see,
I’m sure you’ll tell me what you think..
And just cos i like box doesn’t mean there’s only one i fit in.

I like what i like.
I post what is me.
I reblog what i blatantly love or agree.

bats come out of caves...

the most amazing day today.

i am reallly proud of where me and the bestie have taken these tracks. i’m really proud of what i like to call my “bastardised” guitar. for my least practised and newly added instrument, 97% of our songs have been based around my lil guitar riffs. getting so into them and i’m moving about and chair dancing like a natural when i play now. so getting lost into it and they are fucking rad. to the point where we stop, giggle in disbelief and go yeah. this is us. yeah. we’re rad. yeah. we’d listen to this. even better„ YEAH, we’d dance to this.

ALL of our songs are different. no idea what fucking genre we are. first time i’ve played keys standing up, and i’m dancing round like a fucking rockstar in my lounge room. we are set to jam AGAIN next saturday!!? it’s coming along. we have the itch again. another open mic or two and then perhaps that big show.

THEM HONEST CHILDREN come for you. and we shall make you move.

Ner ner ner ner nerrrrr. My boss is better than your boss. Merry fucking Christmas indeed. There was a cheeky joke flying about for awhile that I deserve a big BONUS for Christmas due to all the hard work and money I bring in.. I joked saying yeah, I’ll happily take one of those old electronic kits home *wink wink* .. And joke played out a lil longer until today. Xmas eve. My boss walks into the office and hands me some sticks. And then said come on, pack up, you’re done for the year and I gotta get you and this drumkit home!! WTF!! She BOUGHT me a fucking kit!! 5X better than the one I was joking about taking home. I work my bum off for this amazing girl and her amazing place. Best I work harder now to repay. Best present I have EVER received. Can you believe this!!? Feeling well appreciated!! Fuck me. Blown away.

ugh. this is gonna be killer

so my bestie has been amazing this year. i don’t need to go into how much he has done for me let alone who he is„ but„ i owe him„ it’s as simple as that. you don’t owe besties. but trust me. he is aFUCKINGmazing. so.. i bought him a ableton novation launchpad for his recent birthday.. just you wait for what this does for our music creates… oh my. first two tracks in and he is aMAAAAAAze…..

so much for not ever wanting to play guitar…

SO, we checked out an open mic session tonight. and felt it was the perfect place for the beginning…

i think it’s set. we have pretty much named ourselves AND the three songs we’re gonna do.

it was all in the air and we left each other tonight going yeah, good, but let’s think about it. james went home. i sat and played guitar along with our “demo demos” playing in my ears. and by the time he got home we were texting each other saying it’s on, let’s do this.

exciting but scary as hell. i already have friends trying to figure where we’re going to play so they can come, but nope. first up, it’s just for us - i think. (as this may change in a day or two more of excitement..) 

i need to remember, i’m always gonna be nervous. it’s always going to be new. there’s always going to be new songs, new venues, new faces…

BUT i love this. I love my bestie. and i LOVE what we do. it’s fun. it’s ours. and we’re pretty damn good. (…and i happily say so myself..)

oh so close

so so sooo close to playing live…

so many good songs i think. and i don’t care anymore what anyone else thinks. so soo loving this.

problem is, cutting down the song list…

my latest LOVE. the beautiful Baldwin upright at work. LOVE getting my hands on this… 
EDIT: i need to use more hand cream - super dry hands! :(

So i just realized after a brill night jamming with the bestie…

I work in a music school with full trust and full access to jam whenever i want.

I know some of the most brilliant producers and sound guys around.

I’m good friends with the best merch people. sellers and printers.

i have great mates that are bookers of multiple great venues.

i even know some of the raddest publicity people and writers of music industry stuffs. 

ANNNND i have the best bestie possible and we make stellar music.

what the fuck am I waiting for…?

Jam’a jam’a full set up jam’a day!!

Jam’a jam’a full set up jam’a day!!

when you don’t plan on writing a song.. THE best ones come out.

now that life is looking up a touch.. time to write about the recent cunty times…
