Man I am so sick of people going on and on about how cool Melbourne is. Was hanging out with some people last night and totally had a go at this dude who was just going on and on about how Perth is sooooo 10 years behind Melbourne blah blah blah.
Well guess what! NO ONE CARES. Another thing? Melbourne was apparently recently voted the best place in the world to live. THE BEST PLACE IN THE FUCKING WORLD. So OF COURSE it’s cooler than Perth! It’s apparently cooler than ALL CITIES EVER. So why the need to constantly compare Perth to Melbourne? Perth is still a rad place to live. We have amazing beaches, beautiful weather, a pumping drum & bass and underground doof scene, an awesome art scene full of talented creative people, and I personally find myself hectically busy every weekend doing heaps of fun stuff. Also, Perth has changed drastically in the past 5 years. Heaps of new cool bars, gigs, and things to do, yet Perth especially gets bagged out by people that moved to Melbourne 5 years ago and have no fucking clue what it’s like now.
Sorry for the rant, and to be clear I also love Melbourne (who doesn’t), I’m just sick to death of people telling me how lame Perth is when it seems to be more a reflection of them.
