Tired and Ill :-(

I'm feeling tired and ill today. So no 'proper' blog entry for today, I'm afraid. You can blame the World Cup, if you like. Being here in Australia has meant that the games have been live around midnight, 2am, and 5am. And now I have a bloody cold too. I'm never ill, but it must be cos of the sleep loss. How privileged must you feel? You finish checking 300 other more important sites, then think "ah, I'll see what that div-kid is talking bout today", only to find that instead it is me moaning bout being ill and tired! So I'll ramble a bit before falling into bed…

I probably already know a fair share of the people reading this blog (some how or some way), but I doubt I know you all, so feel free to add me to your MySpace (if you have it)… http://www.myspace.com/ghilla – same goes for last.fm really, feel free to add me to your friends list… http://www.last.fm/user/jeej/.

Oh, just a quick note to say 'thanks'… after this blogs' first month of existence it had received over 2000 unique visitors, which I was pretty pleased about – and to think I was thinking no-one would read it – so, thank you very much for that. :-)

On a similar note, I do try to mix it up a bit on the blog, seeing as it is updated daily. I try to feature new artists, share news, feature my favourite artists, and also feature some MySpace pages – but if you have any ideas or suggestions for what I should write about, or you have a specific request, just give me a shout.

Anyone at this point still twiddling their thumbs, ummm, I sometimes take photos, check out my gallery here… http://jeej83.deviantart.com/ – here's one of my latest…

And here is one of my most popular shots…

Anyway, enough of my rambling now, time for some kip! Don't worry, I'll get the train back on track tomorrow. :-)

    Yep, well that’s what I have.

    Not that I’d be at all interested in getting better any time soon, I was up before 5am this morning to watch Australia play Croatia! ๐Ÿ˜›

    You've watched too many England games. It's understandable you feel under the weather. I'm sure if Joe Cole manages to score another goal like his last one you'll soon perk up.

    I'm pleased Australia got through to the second round. I expect your neighbours (well ok, not your neighbours, but perhaps the televisual sort of neighbours) feel the same. If the socceroos manage to beat Italy, Italy may completely disintergrate as a nation. Apparently the Italian newspapers are saying this is not so much about the world cup, but Italy itself. But nevertheless, you've got to support the underdogs!

    I'm looking forward to an exciting second round. Sweden vs. Germany, Mexica vs. Argentina, Portugal vs. Holland all sound very exciting.

    My musical recommendation this week is Illinoise by Sufjan Stevens! It's rather special, that album. Rather special.

    It’ll be bitter/sweet if England win the whole thing. I mean I’ll be delighted, but also gutted that I wouldn’t be in England for it.

    Australia stand a chance against Italy, but they’ll have to be very well organised.

    What I’ve enjoyed about this World Cup is that there hasn’t really been any proper crap teams. Ivory Coast were impressive in particular. Even poor old Serbia and Montenegro gave Holland a good game, just like Croatia gave Brazil a good game. But… only 16 teams can progress – c’est la vie.

    Sufjan is good, although I’ve only listened to the album twice – once I’ve caught up on my music, I’ll listen again.

    I’ve been listening to a lot of Jamie T and Cadence this week.

    I keep promising myself that I’ll catch up on my music. But I keep visiting rateyourmusic.com’s top 1000 album list, looking at an album, thinking “yes, i’ve been meaning to give that a listen”, etc. I need a cerebral musical implant allowing me to listen to music all day.
