13th january - add in

NEON HEART (2012)

i really like them. they're more modern with punky sort of rock. their beat and instrumental backing is awesome. it is really good because they dont go into screamo which could suit their music but they keep it in the realm of normal singing which is great. 4.45/5
12th january

NEON TREES
alternative band
really good with a different voice thaqt just doesnt annoy but gives the good original sound. fun songs with a vibrant beat and backing. 4.75/5

really good positive backbeat as well. similar to 'all time low' and really good. 4.35/5
11th january

30 SECONDS TO MARS
alternative band
i have heard of them before and heard some of their songs but never looked into them til now. i like them. they have some cool louder more vibrant songs then calmer stranger ones. but they are pretty cool except for the songs where it is just random background music and no lyrics, that annoys me. 3.65/5

BURN SEASON

i dont like how it feels like they are just about to go screamo and dip into the pool for a second. their songs are fine and i like the beat. 3.45/5

THEORY OF A DEAD MAN
rock band
pretty good songs. rock and good back beat and music. dude's voice is pretty good. no real annoying aspects except when they do the muffled kind of singing bit in sections of the song ('head above water'). more disrespectful songs than nickelback. they should not have crossed that line i dont like them now. kinda pathetic unoptimistic filthy person look on life (song 'gentleman'). lower score now. 3.35/5

AUGUSTANA
rock band
i like their sound. kind of like train or the fray crossed with someone i cant pinpoint... his voice is a little annoying when he goes high is a nasally sort of whiny tone. but i love the songs and the musicians in the background. 3.85/5

9th january

MARTINA MCBRIDE
country artist
i like her and have loved the emotion behind her song 'concrete angel'. she is kinda like taylor swift but more natural to the country root rather than vearing into the pop genre. 3.95/5

SCORPIONS
rock band
i like rock bands but beside the song 'rock you like a hurricane' they dont thrill me much. 2.85/5

LIFEHOUSE
pop alternative band from california
it doesnt seem like pop to me and it has a cool calm yet slightly different edge to it which i enjoy and could really get used to. 4.35/5
8th january

FALLING IN REVERSE
rock post-hardcore band
i like them alot and really got into their songs until i hit screamo bits. 3.5/5 i just cant stand screamo for of singing. everything else was great except that awful sreamo sound pollution.

they made a whole album of aussie christmas songs. my fav is aussie jingle bells 5/5 aussie aussie aussie oi oi oi!!!

T or B - the bourne legacy
7th january

JOHN POWELL
he is a composer for movies including: ice age, the lorax, kung fu panda, how to train your dragon, happy feet, evolution, xmen, bourne identity and supremacy and many more.
he has done the music that for some of my favourite movies and the background music sets the tone, feel and connection with the film so he is awesome. 5/5

PATRICK DOYLE
aother composer who did harry potter and the goblet of fire and brave. both great movies!
the fact that he does those movies and has such different sounds is awesome 5/5

JULIE FOWLIS
singer/ songwriter from scotland.
even though majority of her songs arent in english they still have a soothing and invigorating tone and i just love her voice. so calming....... i could just listen to her and let all my stress and worries just slip away...... 5/5
L - life of pi
(awesome movie!!! better book but great movie interpretation)
6th january

THE RUBENS
rock band 3/5
they are a featured album on itunes among ones i recognise so i listened to them but im not that interested. theyre ok but a bit boring to me.

BUVA
pop band 2/5
a bit bad strange on sound its too highish with slight whine sort of tone i just am not clicking with it even slightly.

BLISS N ESO
hip hop/rap and theyre aussie! 4.5/5
for the rap side of music i quite enjoy the attitudes and stories woven through their songs.
i dont know if it's cheating because ive enjoyed the song 'family affair' for a while and recognise a couple other songs.

DAUGHTRY
rock and aussie 5/5
ive been in love with the song 'it's not over' for some time so ive looked into them and i love them!

TRAPT
rock (with a bit extra hardcore boarding on screamo but not crossing the line)
first impression they're pretty good. more intense than the other rock bands ive looked at. i like them. just have to wathc out for the close screamo boarder. 4/5
5th january

OF MONSTERS AND MEN
alternative band indie folk band from iceland
4.9/5
i recently heard of them within the previous two months after their hit 'little talks'. looking into them i like their different feel. it is calming with a calming burst of originality and the feeling of true absract artistic expressionism through their songs.

WALK THE MOON
alternative indie rock band from ohio
3.85/5 it is nice to listen to i just dont 'click' with it but it is still good

MUTEMATH
alternative rock band from new orleans usa.
4.85/5
i feel like ive heard their songs before but i dont recall ever hearing the name of the band. i really like them! it clicks and they have a soft rock backing accompanied by softer lyrics.
4th january

SCOUTING FOR GIRLS
pop band
3.85/5 they are pretty good except for a few speech accents i dont like and they repeat some words a couple of times in a row during a few songs which is one of the main reasons i hate the generic mainstream music these days. kinda has a background beat like the wombats songs...
kinda starting to like it less and less as i listen... could be the touchy pissed off mood im in...

SMALL MERCIES
rock band originated in brisbane. aussies represent!
4.9/5 i really like its beat and fast paced guitar and backbeat tone. soothing in my pissed of mood. sounds like they're about to go into screamo but they dont and i like the fact that they dont cross that dreadful line. loving it the more i listen. feels kinda classic and reminds me of the movie 'rock of ages'

and just for fun DEAN GEYER
hot aussie boy found on australian idol. i already know of him but i love him so i thought id add it 5/5

FOREIGNER
new york rock band started in the 70s still going strong
4.75/5 they sing juke box hero!!! out of rock of ages!! instant love. they are rock and upbeat and just have a pumped fun classic rock age feel that fills the air...
i dont know if it's cheating considering ive heard of them before now......

YOUNG THE GIANT
an alternative music band - american indie rock band
3/5 i like them for smooth music with some attitude with it for easy and relaxing listening but the sound may be just the slightest bit off... probably depends on my mood

DAKONA
alternative band from canada
3.75/5 they have a more upbeat and calmly sense with good lyrics but some songs i dont like and in my mood i just found it painful to listen too.
i think i missed a month and i stopped updating so restart.

Note added to goal Design my own t-shirt
what i will probs need:

- white (or light coloured) shirt
- fabric paint
- paper to make stencil
- stuff to make the stencil stick to the shirt temporarily
- scissors or blade thing
- cutting mat (if using blade thing)
- paint brush

see if i can get iron on paper that i can do a free hand design on that will transfer a permenant print on using iron. what pen would i have to use...??..


could then use a dye over the top to give it a cool background. ink or dye that doesnt need boiling that i can do whispy sort of mix of colours compared to plain old tye dye or solid colour.
I did get a photo taken with Josh hutcherson but it's a bit (super duper) fuzzy :S
Not really a successful mission. Have to try again
