…Of Dust And Nations

September 6, 2010 Leave a comment

Well hello there Internet world 🙂
Long time no see!! How you all been, my thousands of dedicated followers? Hah.
Gotta say, this week has been fantastic – the weather has been immense, been spending loads of time with my girl, going seeing relatives, and just basically having a great last couple of weeks off for the summer 😀
And now it’s raining :/ bummer.
So yeah, been thinking of writing a book. Fiction, of course, seeing as very little that has happened in this world has really caught my attention. Thinking post-mysterious-apocalyptic-England-reverting-to-middle-ages type thing. Swords and horses through Manchester city centre. That sort of thing 🙂
Btw, I got the new Arcade Fire album last week. Immense work there! Got. Few other bits too; Metric’s latest release “Fantasies”, Thrice’s “Beggars” and The Rocket Summer’s “Do You Feel” album. Not a bad week, I must say. All really good stuff 🙂
Back at uni on Monday, hurray!! Starting at the main campus for my final year. I’m really looking forward to it, the thrill of starting a real university, rather than a college extension. Good times 🙂 hope my loan arrives fast though, cause it’s a long way and I need transport money haha.
Oh well, all’s well that ends well 🙂

Tune of the Day: Devlin – “Brainwashed”

Lost In Time

August 8, 2010 Leave a comment

I gotta tell you, this song is epic! I know that the lyrics don’t seem much written down, but the delivery with the rest of the song is just amazing. Listen if you can!

“I’ll stop the day
You’ll rise again
Don’t count the news man to signal the end
‘Cos you can trust your farthest friends across the world

We’ll take the car
You’re in the room but your head’s in the stars
You can run, but you can’t hide who you are

He couldn’t stay
Thanksgiving’s gone
His growing children continue his song
He was young
Did nothing wrong

I tried to say I miss you tonight
And they claim you’ve already died
But the truth is that we’re lost in time
We’re lost in time
We’re lost in time
We’re losing time

These haunted dreams are brushed aside
We’ll meet again
Another life

I tried to say I miss you tonight
And they claim you’ve already died
But the truth is that we’re lost in time
We’re lost in time
We’re lost in time
We’re losing time

The Ghost Inside…

August 2, 2010 Leave a comment

Wow, 2 posts in 2 days! I’m such an erratic blogger :s but I really have to get this out, even though most people will know about it anyways. The new Broken Bells album is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! How it took me this long to get it is beyond me, but deary me it’s brilliant!!
For those of you who don’t know, Broken Bells is the latest project from Danger Mouse (the creative genius behind Gnarls Barkley), and vocalist James Mercer (The Shins). Their latest album, self-titled and released earlier this year is just purely amazing. Words cannot describe the feeling I’m getting off this album right now. It’s basically a prolonged belly-woosh. To use the technical term…
Anyway, enough jibberjabber fools, go get it from iTunes or something. The best less-than-a-tenner you’ll ever spend 🙂

Tune of the Day: Broken Bells – The High Road
