“Congratulations Serena on 23. I have been right there with you, some of them I lost right there against you. Your win has always been my win, I think you know that. All the times I couldn’t be there, wouldn’t be there, didn’t get there, you were there. I’m enormously proud of you, you mean the world to me.”

The Australian music awards just happened, I remember the first time we won one and it was one of the greatest senses of achievement I have ever left. We are proud to be an Australian band and I am sad we didn’t get to go to the ARIA’s this year ❤️ maybe another time, sending some love to Australia 🇦🇺 xx

Roger Federer defeats Rafael Nadal 6-4 3-6 6-1 3-6 6-3 (Men’s Singles Final) at Rob Laver Arena - Australian Open, 2017.

He did it !!! 18 Grand Slams, after so many years his hard work is paid off. No words can describe how Federer fans are feeling right now. 

Thank You Roger Federer ! 👑👑👑 I’m so proud. ❤❤❤

The reality that I’ll never own a house in Australia has been creeping in. Yes, its a huge country but all the agriculture and industries are moving to more coastal places, baby boomers are working longer, its impossible to afford, houses would cost millions and you have no chance of winning against an investor at an auction, politicans are offering no solution to this problem and I’m just so annoyed. 

Please don’t tell me to ‘just rent’. Rent is ridicously expensive, even more than buying and its not a situation I would want to live forever in.

when you find a song that’s already beautiful and amazing and then you learn it was basically written as a passive aggressive fuck you gesture and it becomes so much more beautiful

I’ve debated over the last few days with whether or not I would post this because I didn’t want to offend anyone. Then I realised that I’m sick of having to tip toe around everyone else to make sure they aren’t offended when I’ve been offended by this country my whole life. Don’t get me wrong I once had a great love for this country and in some ways I still do. I was once proud to call myself Australian. But I no longer feel that way. I don’t feel like an Australian…

I don’t feel like an Australian when I’m constantly questioned about where I’m from and people can’t accept Australia as being my place of origin because I don’t ‘look’ Australian.

I don’t feel like an Australian when Aboriginal people were made to feel like their culture was wrong and ugly yet it’s suddenly become a trend for non Aboriginal people to appropriate our culture without showing respect.

I don’t feel like an Australian when Australia fails to recognise its black history. My family’s history.

I don’t feel like an Australian when Australia Day is celebrated on the day of invasion. The day genocide of Aboriginal people started. The start of ‘breeding out the black’.

I don’t feel like an Australian when white is seen as the standard for Australians and every person of colour 'has to be from somewhere else’. No one questions where a white Australian is originally from.

I don’t feel like an Australian when destroying land for resources is seen as more important than sacred sites or preserving land and environment.

I don’t feel like an Australian when Australia treats refugees like they’re not worthy of life because they weren’t born here.

I don’t feel like an Australian when an Aboriginal woman speaks out about racism and white Australian responds with more racism and hate.

I’m with you Miranda Tapsell.

Australia, you should be ashamed.

(NOTE FOR ALL THE SOOKS: obviously #notallwhiteaustralians, just enough for it to be a problem)

This video makes me oddly proud to be Australian.

Its also very accurate?

Mali: This is a demo I made roughly the other week. Nothing fancy, just a guitar and some basic layered vocals. Wanted to share it, even if it doesn’t end up a #BANGER. Exploring my sound and skills, and I really enjoyed the process of this one. Hope you enjoy x

Ben Mendelsohn. You sir, do Australian Star Wars fans proud. Loved your work from The Year My Voice Broke, through to Metal Skin and Sample People. You’re now no.2 in my favourite Imperial Officer list… (sorry, Grand Moff Tarkin will always be #1!)

Love the affable nature and laid back ‘it’s-like-I’m-just-down-the-pub’ Aussie approach to the promotional interviews as well. :)
