The Music and The Misery
So I started a new blog. Don't worry, i'll still be here to tell you stuff going on with us and give you my opinions on such hard-hitting subjects as Big Brother...but i wanted to write something more specifically to help out other bands, talk about music and the business side of things, so i created themusicandthemisery.blogspot.com.
I guess this blog will end up being more personal for me, and just my view of what we're doing rather than just an update. Whatever, i just write it - it's up to you if you read it or not.
so let's tell stories.
fall out boy show was excellent. well worth the hassle surrounding it for me. the academy is and the hush sound were both ok...i would try to be more descriptive, but i didn't really connect with either of them. I love the academy is album, but felt it lacked something live, something i can't quite put my finger on (good review huh??).
FOB killed it - the third time i've seen them, and they were a little lackluster last tie, but this time they really seemed to nail it and actually looked like they were enjoying themselves (distinctly lacking last time). Played a couple of older songs that i love and made me feel like a more superior fan for knowing them when the people around me didn't....i'm looking at you daniel.
so hung out in london and talked about religion (always a tricky issue, even with friends, don't get me started), ate pizza and ice cream and listened to my iPod too loud on the way home to the great annoyance of the old guy next to me.
got home and hit the party straight away with friends in our home-town. dan was supposed to be taking it easy, but by 1am the kid was looking bleary-eyed and fuzzy around all edges like the rest of us. met a new and very cool person at the bar, we hung out and i pretended to know what i was saying...tricky.
sunday was barbeque time at maunders. you ever play that game where you have to sing into the playstation and it judges how many of the notes you're hitting?? well i got my ass kicked by pretty much everyone there. maunder has the lowest singing voice in history. he is now barry white.
i got told by kev that i can't put pictures in my blog coz it'll be stealing his idea (despite the millions of blogs with photos)....but his computer is broken at the moment so he can't even read this, i'll be safe for a while.
i wanted to post these pictures as i know that some people at home have no idea how cool the kids on tour are and that they ask us to write all over them. we love that and i'm pretty sure that some people think we are faking it when we talk about the thousands of you that we've met this year...here are some photos to prove it:
I think you can click on the pics to see bigger versions, not sure. can't post pictures with anyones faces in but hopefully you know who you are.
More pics, this time to annoy dan coz i know he took a pretty much identical photo of the show last week, but he hasn't had a chance to post his yet...
This is the kid at the show...ain't he gorgeous...
ok, photo time over (i'll try and take some more next time i do anything exciting...it might be a while). so check out the new blog and tell me what i should post on it.
