A Wedding, an Experience, and an Adventure

No post, just video :)

Enjoy the past week through my eyes:

Even if you’re little, you can do a lot

You mustn’t let a little thing like, “little”, stop you
If you sit around and let them get on top, you
Might as well be saying, you think that it’s okay
And that’s not right.


I’ve got a bit of an obsession lately.

Been listening to a lot of the Matilda the Musical soundtrack (which is amazing, by the way), waiting for an opportunity to see the show in person. It was announced earlier in the year that the show was coming to Perth next year and I couldn’t be more excited (I’m still really bummed I didn’t go see it when I was in Sydney in 2015).

The other week, it was just announced that the Melbourne season will be closing with the last shows on the second week of November which was great for me! I’ll be there for PAX during that week and of course I booked to see it pretty much as soon as I land.

When I was younger, Roald Dahl was a source of wonder, imagination, and happiness as someone who liked to read those kinds of stories. This was the man that created Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The BFG, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and of course, Matilda.

I have really good memories of the movie that came out in the 90’s, and to have another adaptation of this great book – with songs written by none other than Tim Minchin – well, I don’t need another other reason to go see it.

If the show is running in your city, I highly recommend checking the musical out. It didn’t win all those Oliviers and Tonys for nothing!

Seriously, check out how amazing these kids are:

When I grow up,
I will have treats every day
And I’ll play with things that mums pretend
That mums don’t think are fun

And I will wake up
When the sun comes up,
And I will spend all day just lying in the sun,
And I won’t burn
‘Cause I’ll be all grown up

50% progress update


Post at least once a month, he said. You won’t forget, he said.

Okay, okay. Hey, I’m here all right!

We’re half way through 2016 and a lot has happened. It hasn’t been a particular great year so far but life goes on and time doesn’t stop for anyone. Unless you’re a mutant named Quicksilver, then yea, I guess it slows down just a bit.

I’m looking forward to the latter half of the year because I’ve got some stuff lined up – it’s gonna be pretty busy!

Good Game Live 2016

Getting pretty good at posting at least once a month! (Let’s not get too ahead of yourself there, Simon).

Anyway, I’m going to cheat for this post and show you guys a vlog that I made of the trip I took to Sydney last month. It was a great weekend, and it was nice to get away from an otherwise ..erm, well, average time I’ve been having here recently. While the weekend didn’t go exactly to plan I still got to hang out with a few friends whom I don’t get to see often and also see my dad which is always a good thing!

In terms of the video itself, I’m actually quite proud of it really. I took my camera everywhere and made sure to film anything remotely interesting, so I had a lot to work with. Last time I went to Sydney I totally forgot to do anything so I made sure this time I had something to make – my channel is even more neglected than my blog here. Speaking of my channel though, I’ve now reached over 50 subscribers! It’s taken a few years and I’m not exactly happy with all my videos or the amount I produce but I’m glad there are people out there enjoying what I do.

Thank you for your support everyone!

Movie Reviews simon on 26 Mar 2016

Films I’ve watched so far in 2016

Proof I go to the movies way too often

Not pictured: the 800 or so points that expired at the new year.

You might call me a movie aficionado. Maybe.

Anyway, I’ve watched a fair few movies this year. Here are some reviews, if you care for that sort of thing.

Perth at Night

So I’m currently binging the new season of Daredevil.

Each episode is 50 minutes to an hour long, and there are 13 of them. Netflix has released the entire season in one batch so that viewers can watch as many episodes as they want in their own time, and without having to wait for the next instalment. I’m just glad it came out on a Friday.

Anyway, why have am I bringing this up? Well take a look at the title of this post.

On Optimism

I consider myself to be a pretty optimistic and positive person. That’s not to say that I don’t realise when something is unreachable or unrealistic but I’ve never been truly stressed about how things will turn out.

What am I enjoying right now?

So it’s been a while since I’ve invested myself in an anime. After I finished up with Naruto (by that I mean, gave up on watching it and decided to read the manga instead) I hadn’t really gone back to any bar the odd movie or two.

Then, just recently it was announced that my favourite band would be providing the opening theme song to a new anime called “Boku Dake ga Inai Machi” (The Town Where Only I am Missing), known in English as “ERASED”.

Re:Re: ("Boku dake ga Inai Machi" OP version)

Listen to a new version of "Re:Re:" that will feature as the Opening Theme to "Boku dake ga Inai Machi" which premieres 7th of January on Fuji TV and associated networks.

Posted by AKFGFan.com on Thursday, 31 December 2015

The anime premiered just after the new year and I decided I’d give it a go. They actually used an old song of AKG’s which first came out in 2004 but has been re-recorded for the anime (in fact the entire album it was on is being rereleased this year). After watching the first episode, I understood why.
