I Still Believe

Hello WordPress. Hows tricks?

I’m feeling a need to blog tonight. I don’t know why…
Maybe it’s the sense of impending doom that is the end of my final uni year. After this, it’s nose to the grindstone. I’d rather just go on tour or something. Play music for someone. I think I’m good enough a player to manage it.
Worlds gone to bollocks again, hasn’t it? Earthquakes, nuclear meltdowns, and protests anywhere that has an abundance of sand. Does anyone else get the feeling that the Mayans might have had it right? I mean, I know that it’s a misinterpretation that the world ends in 2012 (they just couldn’t be arsed writing the calendar anymore) but you gotta wonder with the state of things. 9 months and we’re all dust unto dust. Huzzah.
I tell you, WordPress, I’m feeling mighty pissed/annoyed/lethargic of late. World better buck it’s ideas up. I’m not wanting to go die. Ofcourse, it’ll be a man made disaster: there’s only mankind could manage to kill off mankind.

Right, I’m ranting and rambling. Someone shut me up? Ta.

Do you remember me writing about my mates daughter a while back? The family gets the test results tomorrow to see if the ‘therapy’ is working. Time to see if the big beardy chief was listening. Sundays coming, big man: give me some good news and I’ll be there with bells on. Amen.

Anyway, I’m pooped.

Night y’all!

The Taste Of Ink

Well hello Internuts!
Man, I’ve been really lax about this blogging thing recently. Just been putting it off and putting it off… Too much uni work to be bothered, to be honest.
So, as you possibly gleaned from my last sentence, I’ve started back at uni. And oh boy, I really wish I hadn’t!! Don’t get me wrong, I’ve met some brilliant people so far, and I’m really enjoying the new work, it’s just that there’s SO MUCH of it :/
I’ve already got my dissertation, a concert to organise and write material for and perform, as well as a work placement to find, a recording project and i have to discover the next weird musical science innovation. Shit, by Christmas, I’m going to be a big supporter of euthanasia 😦
On the plus side, life is pretty much top-class right now. I’ve got all my uni equipment through, my loan shouldn’t be much longer, the weather is amazingly good (in my opinion), and things are just going great guns 🙂
Got myself some top quality new tunes lately, as well. Frank Turner, Gorillaz, A Day To Remember, Magnetic Man, Tinie Tempah, The Gaslight Anthem, Tegan & Sara, and Thrice. I’m inundated by good tunes lately! I just wish that I wasn’t getting everything so late after it comes out. I want to get writing some reviews! It’s no good reviewing something that everyone already owns :/ Oh well, I’ll get there eventually.
Might get some sleep now. Might just listen to tunes and play on Twitter. Who knows?

Dear Jack

Aaah, the holidays are almost upon us all! 6 weeks of fun, sun, and White rum 😀 only kiddin; it’ll be more like boredom, rain, and special brew. Yippee! :/
Ofcourse, I myself have been on holiday since the middle of May or something like that, so the excitement has worn down a little haha.
On the other hand, I actually have a very definite plan for my birthday. For a change. Yes, you guessed it: at the grand old age of 22 I’ll be making my first ever trip to Alton Towers where I can happily shit my knickers in front of my mates and girlfriend and prove what a total wuss I am 😀 gettin!!
Ofcourse, this is all a month away as I have to wait for everyones paydays to coincide 🙂 but oh well, it’s only the week after the day anyways 🙂
Ah, can’t wait for my gorgeous girl to start her annual leave- only 2 more work days!! Whoop 😀
Ee, what to do what to do…
Not a clue, actually. So; Big Brother with the Princess, then bed most likely.

Stay Lucky, folks!

Tune of the Day: Don’t Confess – Tegan & Sara


P.s. My mum turned 46(?) today. I think that’s right. Please don’t hurt me, mum…

Chase This Light

Wow it’s been a while… Or maybe it just feels like a while, I’m not sure :s
Soooo much been going on of late, everything feels a little up in the air to me. Geeze where do i start?
So, my mum was in hospital yesterday. She had to have a lump removed, but it turns out it was benign so it’s all good 🙂
I finished my foundation degree in music practice and production with 2.1 so I’m really happy about that 🙂 just waiting on a reply from UCLan to see if I can do 3rd year production, or if I’m on practice next year. Not really bothered which I do though to be honest because I’ll just do my MA in the other 🙂
Really loving the thundery weather lately too, it’s a refreshing change from all the sticky heat we’ve been having.
Also, I got the last Jimmy Eat World album yesterday. Blows my mind! Can’t believe I didn’t get it sooner than this, it’s been out for years!
In general though, my life is pretty awesome 🙂 I really love my girl and she loves me, it’s my birthday in exactly one month, going to hit Alton towers for the first time at the end of august with bex and the guys, and to cap it all this weekend we’re going to visit my family down in Liverpool with my girl 😀 good times.

This post feels a little odd to me…

For A Pessimist, I’m Pretty Optimistic

I gotta say, I love my life 🙂
The weathers freaking awesome, my girlfriend is above perfect, the family are no longer bugging me, I finished uni with a decent grade, and best of all – the soundtrack is immense!!
Seriously though, how good has the weather been?! Shame about everyone rambling about the football, but BBQs and beers are definately the summer thing. Probably the plan for my birthday this summer too. God, I’ll be 22 this year 😦 I’m getting old. Half the people I left school with are parents twice over though, so I guess it’s a plus that I’m not :).
I’m really enjoying my iPod at the moment too – had it on shuffle today whilst walking from home to my girls place. Blink182, stellastarr, ellie g, billy squire, Bruce Springsteen, the gaslight anthem and kids in glass houses. That makes for one pleasant walk, especially at sunset 🙂 Next time I have a party, the dj better look in my iPod for inspiration! Also, re-loving RIOT! by Paramore lately. Good album for summer time.
Still, I really don’t know what to use this blog for… I want it be a way to vent my innerself in a way I can’t do verbally, but I want to be able to give anyone reading it some tips on some absolute TUNES! You know, seeing as I wouldn’t mind being a music journalist at some point in the future 😉
Haha my girl is asleep next to me – it’s 11:51. Such a true student 😉 haha.
Ah, to hell with it – you guys will get what you’re given! Comments and the whatnot appreciated people! 🙂

New Beginnings

Great song, come to think of it…


So, this wordpress thing; I have no friends on here, know nothing about it, and know no-one who’s ever heard of it. Except for a few people that I shouldn’t know know about it…

Anyway; I’m a Uni student. Aspiring zane lowe clone. Absolutely adore music, so I’ll likely post tips on upcoming creative genius. Or maybe just ramble. I don’t know.

Tip no 1: new gaslight anthem album came out on the 14th. It is SHITHOT!! I suggest you all go get it. Whoever you all may be. :s

I’ll likely be doing this from my iPod, so I do apologise for any spelling mistakes I make along the way 🙂

So. Um. Yep. That’s it. I’ll update as often as possible. In the meantime, go get this- it will change your life:

Hello internet!

Well hello Internet! My name is Barry Ashall, musically & internetually known as Baz McCoy (yes, a fondness for a certain potato snack was involved in my naming!) I’m 21 years young, I love music; whether listening or playing: I’m there. I play guitar, bass and drums. I also sing. Be grateful if you haven’t heard me!
I have a girlfriend. She’s incredible 🙂 intelligent, and beautiful. You’ve never seen beauty like my girl. And to add to the incredibleness, she invented the Chinese wednesday: gratest invention since the electric guitar. See, beauty and brains do come together! For all you doubters out there
I love to read. I’m currently half through the wheel of time series again. New book in October and I can’t wait! Other favourite reads include: the lord of the rings, to kill a mockingbird, Dorian gray, and les miserables. Did I mention that I love music? My iPod is constantly jammed to the nines. Fav bands of today include: The Gaslight Anthem, blink-182, Stellastarr* & Bruce Springsteen.
Anyway; the plan is that I want to write a bit this summer (I started a novel that I never finished and be damned if it’s going to gather virtual dust forever!) so I want to get back into the habit so I can finish it. And I’ll probably put out a hint about an up and coming band or two 🙂
So yeah: god help you all who read this.
