Oh my gosh, you guys it's 6.20am. Someone shoot me!

Anywhooo, the reason I'm up so early is because I have to get train at 7.30 and then a bus at 8.45 to get to London for 15.45! And I am going to then stay there until Wednesday at 23.15! \O/

If anyone wants to meet up, tweet me or email me or comment here, I'll have my phone so I'll have (somewhat limited) access to the net & email. I'm already super excited about seeing [personal profile] chairman_wow! I'd love to meet others for coffee or museum gazing or window shopping or whatever~~


As I'm sure most of you know, my part of the country is under snow, and has been since Wednesday! I'd say that in places where it hasn't been cleared, it's about 1 foot deep! Or 30cm for my metric friends. Frustratingly I don't think I own any actually waterproof shoes, but my Docs have been mostly watertight, so they're the ones I'm wearing down to London :) It's bleedin' freezing though! I'm not that fond of the cold, although Star does have a lot of fun running in the drifts (and also, fools passerby into thinking she has tiny legs! Hehehe).

Ummmm. Oh! Right, one thing I think absolutely everyone should do is go and download is anybody upstairs? by The Animal Upstairs. I've been listening to that album a lot lately, and I think it's excellent! It's done by Andy 'the Butcher' Mrotek, who is the drummer for The Academy Is... (can I just say? He is fucking hot, and ridiculously talented, and an artist! And he looks fiiiiiine in teeny tiny running shorts!)


Right! So! Wish me luck on my epic snow-filled quest! London here I come~!

Before I tell you all my thoughts about Danger Days (the new MCR album), I have some amazing news! My big brother is getting married! He's been engaged to his fiancee for a couple of years, but they hadn't set a date.

Well, now they have: January 25th! I think it's gonna be a pretty laid back ceremony and whatever, because that's how this family rolls. But I am just so sincerely pleased that Lise, his fiancee, is officially becoming a part of our family. I already think she's amazing, and I am super proud that I get to call her my sister-in-law!

Anyway!

Thoughts about the album are under the cut! )

So! In conclusion: Planetary (GO!) and Vampire Money are by far the best tracks on this album. I kind of want to hurt GeeWay for even thinking up S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W, it is just that bad. Most of the rest of the songs have really bad lyrics, the drumwork is so boring (OMG BOB! T^T), and I am just not overwhelmed with joy )= It's a shame, because as a whole, the album is ok - but it is only ok, which is somehow kind of worse? I really wantd to love this album, but alas, I think I have to relegate most of it to background music.

Still - when they do it right, as with P GO! and V M, they really do it right, I just wish the album had ALL been that good.

Also, did anyone else think that someone had smashed Franz Ferdinand with The Arctic Monkeys to get the sound for this?

Oh, I guess now is also the time to say - I am so not excited by the Killjoys' verse. I think it would have been amazing as a film or comic, but as an album, I just don't think it works.

It's my birthday today! I'm 22~~

So far...

  • I've spent 30 minutes scraping ice off the car and de-icing the interior.
  • I've walked the dog and fallen over.
  • Also split my freakin snow boots.
  • Had the power go out and drop the temperature in the house into freezing.
  • Been completely alone for way too fucking long.
  • Had my big brother get pissed at me because apparently I didn't tell him the dates I was going down to visit him (I did though! I swear!).

    However

    It's looking better, I have pizza and cake.

    And I will soon have Danger Days! THANK YOU SO MUCH [livejournal.com profile] xaritomene

    Finally, I love Travie's face:

  • lullula: (Tentacles)
    I promise I will post about something sensible soon (like skirts, which I still have opinions on). I have thoughts and shit. I'm just really lazy about making a worthwhile post! D8

    So! Not-so-worthwhile things:

  • I have done a mix for [livejournal.com profile] zombiebang, but it was really difficult to do since I haven't read the fic and also, wow, I found the cover hard to do! This was the first one, which I admit still amuses me BUT IT'S REALLY BAD, so I redid it into this one, which is a tad better. IDK, I'm just bad at this shit, I guess. Here's the tracklisting, which I did so like, half is "AIEEE ZOMBIES" and the other half is "I REALLY REALLY HATE YOU LET ME IN YOUR PANTS". I really hope it fits the fic ok, BUT I HAVE DOUBTS.

  • I have such a serious serious craving to write Gabe/Billviam/Travie. I really want a massive Bandom!Food Network AU, where everyone has their own show and shit, and Bill is basically Nigella Lawson, except male and svelte. I won't write it because I basically hate my writing, but I think I would pay to see others do it.

  • In totally other news, my body is basically falling to pieces and I am a fucking biohazardous wreck. Ugh.

  • I deleted my Facebook, because I was sick of looking at it and seeing "Us middle-class whiteys are so oppressed!" posts. Everyone I really care about, I have other means of communication with, so whatever. I miss having another site to check on in boredom, but I have Tumblr, which updates crazy fast, so I'm ok~

  • Both Evans and New Look have been majorly disappointing lately. Half their shit looks so bad, and the one thing I liked in Evans, Mum said clinged too much to my back fat, so I had to put it back before I sobbed like a fucking child in the changing rooms. IDEK what it is about changing rooms, but they put me on edge and wreck my mood.

  • In good news - I bought Gym Class Heroes' As Cruel As School Children, Paloma Faith's Do You Want The Truth Or Something Beautiful, Marilyn Manson's Lest We Forget, Travie McCoy's Lazarus, The Academy Is... Fast Times At Barrington High and Florence And The Machine's Lungs. I like to think this makes my tastes ecclectic and interesting, rather than influenced solely by fanfic, nostalgia and daytime music tv. *so lame*

    And that's it! I swear I will come back and be interesting at some point!

    Oh! New LJ layout - so pretty!

    I've been wanting to update for a while, but lately I haven't had a lot to say. Life is ticking along, not a lot of any great interest has been happening. I don't think anyone really wants to hear me wax lyrical over skirts and my newfound love thereof, and I haven't been thinking of much else XD



    Oh, I added someone on MSN that I didn't really want to - I don't really know why I didn't put my foot down and say no (I did once, but then he came back and was like, "I insist!"). I have nothing to talk to him about, I don't really like him a great deal and he's made himself an enemy of a few of my friends. I think he only added me so he could tout me as someone 'on his side', otherwise I have no idea why he wants to speak to me - I'm honestly not that good at things like MSN. I go through phases where I'm chatty, but mostly I'm pretty quiet because I have nothing to say.


    Uh, oh! I added a bunch of fat positive blogs on Tumblr, and they all reblog themselves! It's not like I have a problem with that or anything, but it gets a little overwhelming, haha. And then I have a bunch of punk ones, which are all quite political (obviously, I guess). My Tumblr dashboard used to be cute things and pretty landscapes, now it's like, fat women, politics and the occasional cupcake. And lots of zombies.
