Are you still mine?

Hello blog friends!

All of you make me so happy, and I want to give you something. But I don’t really have anything particularly amazing to give away.

Nonetheless, I thought I might give away a little feature on someone’s blog! Seeing as my last attempt at this failed, I thought I’d give it a try! And I would like to feature a less known blogger so this sounds like the perfect opportunity.
The only rules are that you have to be following my blog, and you have to just reply to this blog post. (If I get more than one entry – haha!) I’ll pick randomly and then write up a feature on your blog, and post it on my blog!

In other news, I’m going to Sydney today! And then Wollongong tomorrow, yippee! I won’t have a particularly fancy camera with me but I’ll try to take some pictures nonetheless.

I'm not sure if I'll get time/a computer to make any blog posts up there, we'll have to see.

I downloaded some new music for my travels, and I was wondering, what’s your favourite driving music?

Here’s a list of some of mine J I think they’re all somehow related to driving memories, not co-incidentally.
Unchained Melody – The Righteous Brothers. There’s this particular strip of highway that I drive to Sydney on and everytime I’m on there I feel like putting on this song, poking my head out of my non-existant sun room and with the wind in my hair, scream/singing ‘ohhhh, myyyy looooovvvveee, my darling, i’ve huunngeeered ffooor yooourrr touch!’ etc etc. It’s just epic.

Hitchin’ a ride – Vanity Fare. Has anyone seen that old movie Now and Then? It was like one of my favourite childhood memories, I just loved everything about it, and one day they ride their bikes to a nearby town to go to the town’s library, and one of them has a wireless in their basket and it’s playing ‘hitchin’ a ride’. Then they go for a swim in a creek and boys they know show up and start skinny dipping nearby.

I don’t know, it’s just like the epitome of summer to me.
New Slang – The Shins. I’m ashamed to say that I only recently discovered this song when it came out on Triple J’s Hottest 100 of All Time. I just love it. James Mercer’s voice is like... my favourite voice in the world. I first really listened to this song in a small country town when I was driving around these dirt road hill sides trying to get a good shot of a wind farm.

What are some of yours?


I should get going now, but until Tuesday-ish, I leave you wish this :)
