There's something strange going on in my head...

So I bought (yes bought, with money...) the Valencia record last night when I got home. Giving it a full listen through this morning and it's pretty good. To be honest, I am a sucker for the opening hook - I was sold as soon as I heard it on another bands website.

It was my gf's birthday this weekend just gone, so we had hung out with friends on Saturday night..played Singstar, ate a buttload of food and scared the crap out of her dog with balloons and bad dancing. (we didn't mean to scare him, but we are very bad dancers).

I am assuming Dan made it out alive from all of this, he was gone the next morning when I got up.

On Sunday, we went to watch 300 - which blew me away - go and check it out if you get a chance. It was violent, but kept me hooked all the way through.

The record is just plugging along - I spent like two hours last night working on the intro for Fireworks and nothing that I did was worth keeping. That's two hours down the tube. Demoralising to say the least.

Keep going.

Remember how it felt the first time?

You know what I ate today? Fruit Pastille's. I seriously haven't had them for years and used to be my favourite sweet when I was a kid. Been thinking a bit recently about how I must have changed over the years, but in my head I feel exactly the same. Re-read an old notebook thing I used to have when I was a kid and although I could remember vividly every event in it, I look back on it through an adult's (if that's what I qualify as these days) eyes, the impact of it all fades over time. It's been a while since I've felt like I've done anything for the first time. I am a routine recently.

I'm not complaining by the way - life is good and I regularly count myself among the lucky few to be living a good life and doing what they want. In my own way I try and live with passion for what I love and tolerance for everything else. How well I am doing is up for debate, but I am trying.

So we didn't get tickets fro the Reading Festival this year, which has me bummed out, but we'll end up doing something else instead...I will miss the bands though. We can get drunk and hang out anywhere, but seeing that many bands in one place has it's definite advantages.

I gotta go - said to Dan i'd be at the studio for 4 and I have a load of stuff to do before then.

This made me smile..




I don't know if that's why he got fired or not, but the poem is cute. What really made me laugh was when I looked at the 'video responses' on the YouTube page. Such random people saying the weirdest stuff...who takes time out to do that? Am I worse for watching it? I fear the answer may be yes, but it was funny.

Also worth checking out his "13 Metaphors for why we should never have dated".

Mama Weer All Crazee Now

So I had some money left over from an iTunes voucher that I got for xmas and today I spent it on "The Very Best Of Slade" - I heard "How Does It Feel" on the radio this morning and it reminded me that my copy of this CD had got lost somewhere so I hooked it up. If you don't know, Slade were one of the biggest bands of the 70's and 80's but they are best known for their christmas song which is a shame as it's actually a below-average Slade song.

I have another album's worth of credit from the voucher, so if you wanna suggest anything then let me know.

Not much going on...

Went up to Nottingham over the weekend for Kev's gf's birthday weekend. In our time, we've crashed around a lot of places, including a lot of uni flats - and that was one of the nicest places to hang out, everyone was super-nice to us and made us feel welcome....we got back at like 2 in the morning and woke everyone up and they were still cool with us..so thank you to everyone who we met. We played singstar, ate cake, drank home-made malteser milkshakes (told you they were good hosts) and got drunk.

Went to Rock City that night - always wanted to go and it was really cool. Pretty typical heavy-rock playlist but they had really hot podium dancers and you know I'm a sucker for that every time. Would definitely head back. In our home town, we pay the same amount to get into place a quarter of the size (if that) and with less rooms and more expensive drinks.

Back to work this week. I am trying to get the rest of my stuff out of the way so I can hit the studio later this week. Wasn't really happy with anything I managed to get done at the end of last week, but you gotta keep going right?

Max.
