I'm Keith. I'm 27. I'm Australian. I've never really been the kind of person who fits in, anywhere.
I tend to stand out, for better or worse. I tend not to care what most people think of me, except the people who encourage me to keep being me.
I'm the kind of guy who will quite happily walk down the street in a trenchcoat, top hat, vest, and tie, and not care about the weird looks I get.
I've got three piercings, and one tattoo. I'm looking to get more tattoos, but I'm not sure about more piercings.
I vent my frustrations, anxiety, and depression by writing what could be described as rock music inspired poetry, and frequently by just simply writing about them on this very blog.
I believe the world would be a better place, if we could each make an effort, at least once per day, to make someone else smile.
Feel free to add me on:

When I was younger, despite certainly not being popular, I was once voted into a position that’s usually a popularity contest.
See, I was a member of the Scouts, and we’d recently gained an influx of new scouts joining our troop.
This meant we needed to divide the troop from 3 patrols, into 5, which, of course, meant we needed two new patrol leaders.
I ended up getting voted in as one of them, because the general consensus was that I was the most responsible, and had the most life experience and practical knowledge.
I was pretty proud of that one year I was a patrol leader. I also learned a lot from the experience of being a Scout, too.
I need people around who aren’t afraid to stand before my camera… And I know there is a lot of you who’d gladly help.
Nearly everyone I know either won’t do it because they don’t think they look good, or won’t do it because they don’t like having photos taken. Or a combination of both.
I wish them both all the best. I just find it interesting how they’ve always been close, and now they even managed to get engaged to their respective partners at almost the same time.
It’s pretty awesome, really.
Dear facebook friend who I will leave anonymous: If Easter is truly “The anniversary of Jesus’ death, and resurrection”, it would fall on the same date every year.
I’m not even going to go into the origins of it, or anything else, but the fact is, while some may believe it’s a celebration or remembrance of that biblical event, it is not an anniversary.
Besides, for most people, it’s more about the chocolate anyway, so let’s all stop arguing about who invented it, or what it means, and just eat as much chocolate as we want.
Let’s see what we can learn about me from my music taste today…
1. “Iris” - Goo Goo Dolls
2. “Scream” - Avenged Sevenfold
3. “Ace of Spades” - Motorhead
4. “Last Kiss” - Pearl Jam
5. “Seek and Destroy” - Metallica
6. “Holiday” - Green Day
7. “Doomsday Clock” - Smashing Pumpkins
8. “Melissa” - Mercyful Fate
9. “Between angels and insects” - Papa Roach
10. “Space oddity” - David Bowie.
I think my hair has faded enough that it’s almost time for a new colour.
I’m thinking of going away from the purple and green this time.
I’ve been doing those a lot lately.
Perhaps something with a Blue.
I have a tendency to make a lot of very small observations in my head.
These small observations have, on several occasions, caught people out on lies, or things they were trying to keep secret.
I’m not an easy man to lie to, even if the lies are sometimes for my own good. I see more than I let most people think.
I’m always very careful, though, about letting on that I know someone’s lying to me, because I’m aware that sometimes, my brain tells me things are worse than they are.
I just stop for a moment, and think, “At least it’s not like the USA…”
I’ve always felt you can learn things about someone by learning what music they keep with them… And I encourage people to learn about me.
