Blissed out

I always say I'm going to remember to write in this but I never do. I read these blogs about peoples day-to day lives and their boy drama but does anyone really care? Like facebook, nobody cares if you have checked in to Wetherspoons. Well, maybe some people do. The people who are also there with you, also on their wankPhones, commenting on said check-in or status, oo we're so crazy, sitting right next to each other and having a conversation on the internet.

Oops, that turned into a bit of a rant. Probably an identikit rant to other ones on people's blogs but there we go.

I think someone said once that the best writing was about writing. Which is confusing, but quite... umm.... post-modernist, self-reflexive and all that bollocks. I might write about my experiences of the last two weeks, I've been at Bliss Mag for two weeks. It was cool. I actually enjoyed it more than I thought I would, and it turns out that I've got quite a good teenage voice. and I don't know if it's good or not, but it's a definite career possibility.

Anyway, I haven't actually written anything about anything yet, so I'll say I'll write about this week but I'll come back to it in six weeks and won't remember or be arsed.

Nice indie-pop, this band are getting quite big now.

Teen TV is Top

Misfits, I love you for making the nation (and more importantly, me) aware of this song:

Chemical Brothers - Swoon (Boys Noize Summer Mix)

The second episode of the new series, this song comes on when they're all dropping in a club and my first port of call is the e4 website to id the track. Beautiful. The sighing vocals are a bit reminiscent of Aphex Twin's Windowlicker, except less... grotesquely weird. Adding on the simple but effective lyrics and the synths typical of this genre = my perfect song.

Also, was looking at the old Skins playlists whilst on the e4 website, because they did pick some gems didn't they? - and re-discovered Asobi Seksu (according to wikipedia, a 'dream pop band', whatever that means), who are really lovely, particularly this track, which I think is one one of the episodes somewhere.

Asobi Seksu - Thursday

God, I should blog more often. I mean, who doesn't want to read this bollocks?

Ok by me in America, everything free in America

I haven't written in this in some time, I thought I might start up again, it might be fun.

I went to various parts of Canada and America for some three weeks the other day, it was fun - then I looked on a map and realised that we had actually travelled completely across North America, which was quite cool.

British Columbia -> Alberta -> Saskatchewen -> New York

Those were the provinces/states we went to/through.

I might write an account of this in a bit.
