Tim Finn, what an amazing guy. After a big day at my nephew's Teddy Bears Picnic, I somehow managed to muster the effort to get all the way over to St Kilda to see Tim Finn performing pretty much on the beach! There was quite a seaside breeze, but I didn't really care cause they played Crowded House and more importantly Split Enz classics. Suddenly the long tram ride seemed insignificant when listening to masterpieces such as 'My Mistake', '6 Months in a Leaky Boat', 'Poor Boy' and 'Weather With You'. These are songs I thought that I would never ever hear live but there I was, hearing them live. It was almost surreal. Tim Finn had such a stage presence from the second he walked on, his silvery hair making a very dramatic statement, he is both an artist and musician, or is a musician one in the same.... I'm not sure I'm completely sold on Tim Finn's solo stuff but they were completely thoughtful and romantic songs, which is right up my street, most of the time.
So in conclusion - I am ever so grateful for busting my arse to get to this event because it made me oh so happy, I was grinning from ear to ear. And let this be a lesson to you, don't miss out on something great because you couldn't be arsed. Seize the day and all that. Thanks Tim Finn, you are my hero.x
