Well I'm not gonna force you to read my blog, but if you should happen to stumble upon it, take the time to sift through it as it may prove to be of some relevance to you. God forbid, you may actually enjoy it and you would wish to click the button which would mean you were eternally my follower. There isn't really any sort of meaning or specific task that this blog sets out to fulfil, think of it as bohemian.

My babies.


<3

Snakebitesssssss.

So I got my snakebites yesterday after months of waiting. I'm so happy with them they look so cool :D

They have swollen a bit and also there is some major bruising going on inside my lip, it'll clear up but its a bit annoying.

I'll post a picture later today :)

Two exams done so far, here are my potential marks and predicted marks as I see appropriate...

Mechanics:
Potential: 80%
Predicted: 55%

Music:
Potential: 100%
Predicted 75%

I've got four exams left, but really, I don't have the energy, nor the care for them.

I really hope Tempa T is at Reading :D

This is why...



Reading 2010

Its so fucking kick-ass this year. Definitely made the right choice of festival, was well worth the risk :)

Compared with the 10 bands at Sonisphere I want to see and the 20 bands at Download I want to see, Reading comes out on top with 25 awesome bands that I'll hopefully catch (if the clashes aren't too mean to me).

For anyone on Spotify who wants to have a listen to a selection of 5 songs from each band playing at Reading; click here for quite a brilliant playlist (if I do say so) that I fixed up yesterday :)

Definite recommendations that you might not have heard of:

Gogol Bordello (Gypsy Punk; for fans of Flogging Molly, Sonic Boom Six, Dead Kennedy's)
Frank Turner (Folk Rock; for fans of Newton Faulkner, Jose Gonzalez, Jamie T)
Thrice (Prog/Hardcore; for fans of Alexisonfire, Protest The Hero, Funeral For A Friend)
Streetlight Manifesto (Ska/Punk; for fans of Madness, Sonic Boom Six, Reel Big Fish)
Crazy Arm (Folk Punk; for fans of Flogging Molly, NOFX, Sum 41)
The King Blues (Acoustic Rock; for fans of The Maccabees, The Gaslight Anthem, You Me At Six)

But I'm sure you'd find loads of hidden gems in that playlist :)

City and Colour in nineteen days omg!

200th post.

And I'm gonna dedicate it to the memory of Paul Gray who died today. He was an amazing bass player and was a pleasure to see live with Slipknot at the Hammersmith Apollo and at Download Festival. He truly knew how to play some raw and fuelled music. I hope wherever he is now he is still doing what he did best, entertaining millions of people with his music in the skies.

This maggot sends his love to you Paul. Rest in peace.

I don't want to get older.

Its boring.

Listening to a lot of Slipknot lately.

They're so amazing. I'm looking forward to the next time I see them live. They were awesome at Hammersmith and they were like, perfect at Download last year.

I'm so scared for this phone call. I don't want to make it its too scary but, if I don't then the consequences will just get out of hand and I will be in something so deep that I'd suffocate.

Twenty-nine days until the best gig I will have ever been to. I'm so excited.

I will make it.

I, umm. I'm still just as confused as the first day.

Friday, 7 May 2010

I've never felt lower.

Or more terrified.

I mean, I'm on the verge of my life just being shot to bits. I really am the most scared I've ever been in my life.

Election Night.

And I feel strangely excited.

How odd.

It was a situation where, normally you'd be happy.

But to be honest, it kinda killed me =/

I'm disgusted in myself for almost making it seem like a game, like I had lost. As if it were some ultimate prize that I was fighting for. It's so much more than that though, and I did lose really.

I lost that which I never had in the first place.

If I could turn back time, maybe I would've tried to make it even clearer to you. Could've spared me a few things.





Let me explain how I feel right now.

I've got the most insane and electrified butterflies in my stomach but... All of their wings have been pulled off. So all they can do, is crawl. Crawl inside of me and make me feel sick and putrid.



Maybe that would help?
