I'll beeeee gone in a NINDIE BAND
I seem to like a new indie band roughly every other year, and perhaps it will be the Futureheads for a second time. It's odd that new stuff should have just appeared - I was only re-listening to them cos of the anniversary of the Munich Air Disaster.
I rather like this new track
Quality Street (1 tin, 1 orange octagon left)
Turkey (4.5kg, 2 rounds of sammich left)
Battlestar Galactica (20 eps, ie series 1 & 7 eps series 2, rest to watch next week)
Slobbin about playin wit son and heir (loads, loads left)
was chosen to report live from some boat on the recent whaling story.
The news anchors in the studio, as they hand over to him, have been visibly smirking.
i finished my book, cos the last 2 chapters were a real bore, so i moved on this morning to listening to the Black Kids EP and the Burial album.
Black Kids, okish fun, rly like one track. it's Go Team shoutiness feel and old-fashioned synth-line indie.
Burial. Not all that too, which i was kind of expecting from the 'ambient 2-step' descriptions. it reminds me of loads of early/mid and late 90s ambient gubbins that's out of fashion (but NOT portishead as Tom suggests). closest i can grasp at at the mo is that early ecstasy of st theresa/seefeel even BoC
when i'm done with that i'll have another stab at britney which i liked more, but still wasn't overawed with the way a lot of ppl seem to have been.
no not stoopid DYS poster 'subvertising'
i mean my culture gets jammed - i can't listen to new music, read my books, read newspapers, watch telly, do crosswords, EVERYTHING. and sometimes i get stuck on one track.
right now i am BOOK READING, and haven't listened to anything since i bought the Britney. don't even know what's out.
sometimes i will spend all my time doing the guardian cryptic crossword and not take in the actual NEWS.
telly is all rubbish. i'm not even listening to pop radio, despite a resolution to do more of that.
WHERE IS THE BALANCE GONE :-(
is it cos i's old? (ans: almost defintely so)
