It Isn't Forever
So I slink back to by faithful old blog, with Twitstick on my collar. It's been waiting up all night for me, worried sick. My dinner's waiting in the oven, and this is going to take some explaining...
Yeah, as Amy rumbled me in the Comments Box of my last post, a solid month ago, I've foresaken this place a wee bit. Twitter is partially to blame, but also a home web phone broadband TV failure that thrust me back to 1999 for over a week (trying to do anything via Dial Up is like trying to get a Camel Light through the eye of a needle). Plus, other stuff. You know. Life. Getting in the way, as it is wont to do. But in a very good way.
There's been lots of fun had. Wonderful live noise with Eagles Of Death Metal, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Doves. Jaunts around the cultural delights of the South Bank. An eyeball to eyeball encounter with an actual shark at the London Aquarium. I dressed up as Dave Tennant's Doctor Who. Again. Oh! And I succeeded in giving up sugar for Lent! And then fell off that wagon in quite considerable style. Let's just say the shop assistants in Hotel Chocolat are easily the politest, sweetest and most persuasive pushers in the game...
And this, of course, is what I've been listening to.
1. The Maccabees - Love You Better
2. Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Heads Will Roll
3. Sugar - Helpless
4. Morjac & Fred Falke feat Sarah Tyler - When We Were Together
5. Jon Hopkins - Light Through The Veins
6. Art Brut - Alcoholics Unanimous
7. Deadmau5 feat Kaskade - I Remember
8. Doves - Kingdom Of Rust
9. La Roux - In For The Kill (Lifelike Remix)
10. The Field Mice - It Isn't Forever
And it wasn't forever. Been doing this for five years now, and sometimes I need a break. But I've not given up on it, not yet...
