I don't really like On Avery Island, it is too fuzzy and guitarry for me (even though Aeroplane is very guitar led, somehow the lyrics just make it seem.... different.. I don't know). Aeroplane is wonderful, it reminds me so heavily of being young and trapped in that point between teenage years and ...

oh I'm really excited!! Last night I played guitar with my boyfriend and we figured out a few nice things. We always say that we're going to form a duo or something, but never get round to it, but we wrote something nice last night. I am going to be putting on a gig in aid of fundraising for my degr...

Georges Du Fresne - Ma Vie En Rose he was fantastic, wasn't he. god, i loved that film, too. i cried. i was the only one in the cinema, possibly the world, who cried at that film.

what can I do with parnsips apart from roasting them? They are my favourite vegetable, but for the life of me I never do a thing with them that isn't roasting them with potatoes. mmm parsnips.

I miss my dog :(

In my crueler moments, I think that I only go back to Surrey so that I can see him, and not my mother. He's a cutiepie, albeit a rather psychotic one. Sigh.

lots of mono please.

I listen to a ridiculous amount of post rock. Although by post rock, I probably mean drone and most instrumental music, because the actual definition confuses me.

I used to wear a vintage nurse dress for gigs. Not tacky or gross or anything, but I'm really not sure why I chose it to the day. I'm still I was making some sort of point, but one I have no way of articulating now. I only actually sold that this year. I quite liked most of my kiddie clothes, althou...

I never really got into Angel, but Buffy was a great teenage obsession of mine, and Firefly/Serenity are just brilliant. Alan Tudyk is just heavenly also, I still girly giggle every time I see him in anything nowadays. The first series of Buffy is the best imo, although I really didn't like it towar...

P basses remind everyone of their first bass I think. Mine was a p bass copy, and I couldn't look at one ever again. Gurgh. My bass is an epiphone SG bass. I have to play 3/4 size because it's so heavy! Even though I am not exactly the smallest, but too used to fenders and hollowbodies = meh. It's a...
