(Seriously, go to the steps EARLY. Like, before the sun comes up. There will be no one there.)

Honestly, I can’t put my finger really specifically on why I am loving this book so much - it’s not a revolutionary premise but somehow it’s brimming with originality. Just reads so easily, prose flows so well in such a beautifully modest way.
I am so comforted by the fact this is the first of a trilogy - otherwise I’d be too depressed that these (seemingly) short 400-odd pages are all I get of the Maddaddam world.

Flying Lotus - Never Catch Me (ft. Kendrick Lamar) [Music Video]
Flying Lotus just released the music video for his absolutely riveting song “Never Catch Me” yesterday. I definitely appreciate the artistic direction the director took for the music video. Kendrick Lamar needs to do more intellectually poetic collabs like this. You’ll find this song on Fly-Lo’s upcoming album “You’re Dead!”.
Here’s the iTunes link to our first album - listen to the previews for a good idea of what we do! I highly recommend sampling - Over the Misty Mountains Cold, Still Fighting It, Who Loves You and Loch Lomond, but heck everything sounds fab!
Okay so the chorus I sing in (who are the reigning Australian A Cappella national champions!!) just released a CD and I’m listening to it and wow! the mix is incredible.
Josh Belperio’s Arrangement of ‘Over The MIsty Mountains Cold’ from The Hobbit is rocking my world so good, how on earth do we sound this good???
Send me a message if you’re interested in purchasing a CD, they don’t cost much and you may enjoy the flagship a cappella ensemble in Australia!
The track list is:
1. After You’ve Gone
2. Over The Misty Mountains Cold
3. Lux Aurumque
4. Still Fighting It
5. Let’s Burn Up The Town
6. Ave Maria
7. Now The Powers Of Heaven
8. Who Loves You
9. Once Upon A Time
10. Loch Lomond
