New kicks

Left: Nike Roshe Run (Out of stock) / Right: Nike Air Max Thea Here
Got these new babes at Asos's flash sale last week. Could never find a pair of black Roshe run in stock, in stores or online, so I was thrilled to find that Asos got a few pairs back last week, and so the shoppaholic-ness happened.

Loving these two pairs. So far the Roshe runs are a tad more comfy than the Air Max (maybe because they're women's style) but I adore how the Air Max ones look.

Never been a trainer person but hey, people change.

Känn ingen sorg / Shed No Tears

Such an unexpected flick, thought it'd be another highschoolmusicalkindof musical comedy (because of the poster) but the story actually develops into a sorrowful tragedy (hence the title I guess). It's still got a positive message, which I don't like (I know, such a killjoy), but it managed to get rid of most of the cheesi-ness that positivity usually brings and weaves it into a sea of regret, loss, confusion and heartbreaks. Can see how it got so many Guldbaggen nominations.

It's a film built on Håkan Hellström's songs, would be a lot more fun to watch if you're a fan of his. But I'm sure that everyone can enjoy this film even if you haven't heard of him before (which I reckon is the case for most non-Swedish speaking folks)

Also kudos to the film crew for making Göteborg looking this charming.

I'm not sure if there's English sub available now but fingers crossed for you guys.

Rating: 7.5/10

Can we just all take a moment and appreciate how perfect this cover is?
Got this album just yesterday and had a quick play through the whole cd this morning. Can already say that I love this so much more than the last one. Love it when she does something different (she did try Trance on a studio album long before, LOVEppears, but it's always nice to see her going off the usual pop track again) Favvo tracks so far: Terminal and NOW & 4EVA. Terminal, produced by the talented Armin van Burren (actually I think most of the album is produced by Western musicians), is just beautiful. Fingers crossed that they'll realease a single, or at least a remix. NOW & 4EVA, contrary to its cheesy title, is a typical ayu rock-y song. A safe choice, maybe a bit boring but you know what? She can do it because she does it well.

You can get the digital copy at iTunes Here or a hard copy at mumo official webshop Here (via Tenso)

The Case Against 8

Saw this wonderful documentary last night at George's Event, hosted by Queer Screen.

Synopsis from IMDb 'A behind-the-scenes look inside the case to overturn California's ban on same-sex marriage. Shot over five years, the film follows the unlikely team that took the first federal marriage equality lawsuit to the U.S. Supreme Court.'

It is hands down one of the most emotional films I've seen this year. So powerful that I had to try so hard not to burst into tears during the entire film (and just FYI, I failed at the end). Last time I cried so bad at cinema was last year's Blackfish, which you should all watch, but unlike that time, I wasn't crying of anger, sadness or disgust, I was crying of joy. I was so happy for them, so proud of them and so grateful of them for what they did and what they went through.

The director said that the film is coming to cinema for public audience this early October (Dendy Newtown for Sydneysiders) and also they're planning for a special screening in a few weeks time at the Australian parliament with Ted Olson coming over, a pro-gay-marriage American conservative to a bunch of homophobic Aussie conservatives.

Highly recommend to everyone interested or affected or involved in LGBTQIA activism. Also highly recommend to everyone who thinks f*gg*ts should be burnt in hell. Although if that's the case you should really just get off my blog and f*ck off before that.

This is how Hobart stole my heart

Sorry for the lack of posts these past few weeks, have been horrendously busy since the June exam period, and then the day after I finished everything in school I left for Tassie and now I'm back I had to do 2 weeks intense workshops for my honours, which finally finished a couple of days ago.

Anyway, I'm back and will go back to a more regular update schedule.
