*'We're not slowing down' - The Best Bit *

If life doesn't slow down, why should we?

Tea, chocolate and comics, that's the best bit.

Around about this time every day too (when I can manage it), it sure is a wondrous combo.

Here's "The Best Bit" for you to listen to, the final song from my Postcard Singles series: http://bit.ly/TheBestBitSong

There'll be comedy, magic, vaudeville and geek pop in the show. But will there be you?... I sure hope so!

If you're free this Sunday night, come party with me:

It'll be a hoot. {(@)v(@)}

'I'm not gonna let things pass me by again...' -Not Gonna Be Me

I'm of course not referring to all "things" with this lyric. I could cause serious traffic jams that way ;) More, the things I knew I should have taken advantage of to get me closer to achieving my aspirations but let slip by. We all do that sometimes. We really shouldn't.

You can read all the lyrics and watch the music video here: http://bit.ly/NotGonnaBeMeVid

How to say 'I would like a medieval sword' in Hungarian

The funny thing is, you might actually get one.

 Here's the music video for my song recorded in Hungary (amongst sword wielding medieval fighters and a lot of goulash): http://bit.ly/NotGonnaBeMeVid

This is how to say 'Did you really make your own soap?' in Hungarian

The funny thing is, the answer might actually be yes! I met with a number of people who made their own almost-everything. Soap, jam, dried fruits, wine, firewood, dried herbs... It's impressive.

Here's the final song I recorded whilst staying over there: http://bit.ly/TheBestBitSong

+Paul Lucas it is never too late to succeed at your dreams. If you have them, chase them :) The idea behind the song was to encourage you to use your regrets (specifically, those about you holding yourself back from success) as fuel to follow your dreams now and not let ANYTHING stop you!

The final Postcard Single is released! 'The Best Bit'... Obviously the "best" way to finish the series off ;)

You can hear it here: http://bit.ly/TheBestBitSong

It's a song for lovers of cake and craziness. And just as a side note, I am posting this after having just devoured a wonderful slice of cake, fitting I believe :P

Finally had the chance to listen properly and it's absolutely awesome, +Meri Amber​! I knew you would finish the Postcard singles with something really fun and this is a big boatload of it. Love the backing track with the piano(?) driving the beat, it sounds somewhat beatle-esque like Obladi-Oblada!

Story
Tagline
Geek pop singer songwriter. Think lasers, kazoos & ninja style world domination.
Introduction
Meri Amber is a geek pop singer-songwriter from Sydney. Her sound can be likened to a mesh of bright pop with a smidgen of 90s punk rock stirred in, topped off with a generous sprinkling of pop culture samples and computer game synths.

She lists Lily Allen, Mika and Aqua as some of her influences as well as Pokémon, Starbucks and Tim Minchin. When not writing songs she’s busy drawing, inking and colouring her CD booklet comic, or alternatively, roaming the internet on a quest to find cat pics, novel shopables or reasons to rant on her community radio show.

A Meri Amber performance is a quirky affair, her performances have included singing songs alongside a yeti, prawn man and mafia men puppets. She’s stood under stage lights as pre-show foyer entertainment for Pink, Lady Gaga, Russell Brand and the Flight Of The Conchords, as well as partook in sold out shows at the Sydney Entertainment Centre, Oxford Art Factory and Hills Centre.

Like Charlie Sheen, she’s also done some winning. Her song ‘Share My Time’ held the number one spot on Triple J Unearthed for two weeks, she took home the People’s Choice Award at the Australian Independent Music Awards and won the demo category of the national FOOM song writing competition.
