 For those of you out there that read this often, you'll know i'm a music festival girl. 

I hate camping, but love having beer for breakfast, tequila for lunch and jager for dinner. This is only possible once a year at the Oppi Koppi music festival.

Each year, the festival has a title. this year, it's from the Black Keys album - Unknown Brother. why, y'all ask? because the vibe of the entire festival has you making friends and finding your unknown brothers and sisters. unlike a lot of festivals I've attended, Oppi remains the one place where the bad attitudes and bullshit is left in the city and everyone is united in their love of great local talent and letting their freak flags fly. This is the only vacation I take every year.

This year is a line up I'm super excited about. Top local talent such as Lark, Fuzigish, Zebra & Giraffe, Van Coke Kartel, Die Antwoord and dozens more. Then we have the international acts: *clears throat*
SUM 41 and........ THE USED!!!!!!!!!

That is right! Bert and the boys are heading to the deep bushveld and this little fangirl is gonna be front and center!!! 4 weeks and counting!!!!! 

See here and here for info on the festival. I will be tweeting and posting during the fest. my twitter is: insaneinsomniac

Ever since I can remember, my MO has been - Go Out! Go Anywhere! Just Get Out Of The House!
In all fairness, I was sharing a house with five family members and a menagerie of pets and only one TV and no internet. My only escape was to literally escape!

But now I have my own place and I find myself spending more and more time at home. Am I getting settled? I hope not. That travel bug is still biting hard. But it is nice to come home to quiet and a crazy cat after a day of madness and chaos.

I spend weekends sorting cupboards and doing housework where before, I spent weekends sleeping off the party the night before. I now stand in shop aisles debating the best/cheapest washing powder and the price of pastrami.

EGHADS! I've become my mother! HELP! SOMEONE GET ME OUT OF HERE!!!

And then I turn on Sublime, sing along to Santeria at the top of my voice and the world doesn't seem so suffocating anymore.
