I Love My Town

March 21st, 2011

Well what can I say?  Thanks just doesn’t seem to be cutting it anymore – you guys, you guys ROCK!  I can’t believe how many people came out and handed over their hard earned cash to support our community and to show they haven’t forgotten our flood victims.  Thank you – from the very bottom of our hearts.  I think we can all officially call Treading Water a success – there was great music, loads of laughter, amazing raffle prizes (except I didn’t win anything, I’m just saying…), tasty food and lots and lots of people.  I haven’t had a chance to find out how much was raised but I saw many, many people buying raffle tickets so I expect we did pretty well.  Jason and I had a blast – I can’t tell you how long it has been since I took in a band or two on a school night.  At the front table when you walked in, we set up a slide show of some of the images Jason took of the flood.  It seems so strange now – when we walk down the road now to grab a bite or a video or supplies – that, only a few weeks ago, it totally under water.  It gives you a little bit more insight into how people are feeling in New Zealand and Japan – the devastation of having your community there one minute and in tatters the next.  Heart wrenching stuff…

So in between beers and bands, Jason ran around trying to capture the mayhem but we thought you’d all be interested in the highlights. (I’m afraid he had an early shoot in the morning (and I am OLD) so we left a bit early but I’m sure the place was jumping until the wee hours of the morning.)

I ended up buying Silent Feature Era‘s latest CD at the event – on the strength of their first song…I’m sure we will be hearing from these guys in the future.  Also if you are looking for a venue for your wedding or engagement party the Lightspace in Fortitude Valley is just fabulous – I love everything about the venue and the decor is ultra industrial and chic.  I’m thinking about having a party JUST so I can use the venue I love it so much!  I have added this detail shot because I want this chandelier!!!  Like BAD!

Treading Water

February 21st, 2011

It seems almost surreal to think that just weeks ago a vast portion of Brisbane was under water.  It seems almost like it never happened – like a dream.  But for us who weren’t directly hit by the floods we can move on, move back to our lives as they were.  The floods just being a strange frightening occurrence, a once in a lifetime deal.  But for those who were hit, whose possessions were sucked away – their live will be forever altered.   Jason and I wanted to do more – we have been tossing around ideas not really sure which would be most helpful – and then Jacob contacted us about being involved a fundraising event he was organising called Treading Water.  A couple of bands, some giveaways, some way for us all to keep letting people know we care.  I would love it if you all could come – other than listening to some great homegrown music – you will also be able to win a $1000 portrait session with us.  Entry is $10 and will go towards the flood victims – to help rebuild their lives and allow them to move forward.  So mark it in your diaries – at the Lightspace on Thursday 17 March at 6pm and for more info join their facebook page here!
