Archives for Month: October 2012

I went to… let’s see, two gigs this week? I can barely keep track anymore. All I know is that it’s my way of unwinding and just forgetting about work and uni for the week. I won tickets to The Standard’s first birthday, so I went along to that. I was actually debating whether or not to go – but when the email came saying I’d scored the tickets, I thought, why not. I hadn’t […]

Happy Birthday to The Standard, my favourite venue! The supporting acts were all terrific but I have to admit that my favourite was Palms, and I loved their new song Love… so check it out on their website.

Papa vs Pretty were fantastic, they were a tonne of fun. Having heard so little of their music, I was extremely impressed with their performance on Friday night and will definitely go out and buy some […]

I’m probably a bit of a loony, having seen the Griswolds six times now (I’m willing to bet I’ve seen them more than anyone else has). I don’t know – I can’t get enough of it. Do I get tired, no, I don’t, they’re loads of fun, and I just don’t get bored seeing them. I saw them Friday night with The Belligerents and Edens March. Two bands who I don’t really know much about. […]

Fully sick Friday night, The Belligerents and Edens March – you did a fantastic job supporting the Griswolds! Loved your music, both of you.

The Griswolds – HA! Sixth time seeing you guys and I’m not forgetting it. Bütz. Hope your voice has returned, Whitehall. 🙂 Absolutely enjoyed the show and thanks for not kicking me off stage. Probably looked like a loon when I did the headbanging. Riley I hope you like your photos. […]

Three and a half weeks to go.

The more I try to tell myself I’m not tired, the more tired I realise I actually am. I am not sure how much longer I’ll be able to endure this without feeling some kind of exhaustion. Working, studying, working again… In France, President Hollande proposed no homework for school students. I don’t doubt it’ll take ten years for all other countries to realise, “hey, this is […]

1) That of Andrew, my friend from the band Hey Geronimo.
2) My blog.

I successfully managed to completely forget it was my blog’s birthday (Heartdrops turns four years old today) because I just kept remembering it was Andrew’s birthday, and the rest of notes piled upon my head consisted of university forum posts, university assignments, university storyboards, work, vodka, cheese, more vodka, more homework, work… yeah, piece of shit. Happy birthday Andrew! 🙂 […]

I hate university so much right now. Thrice today I got called “a little mad” or “crazy” or “insane” for working full-time and studying full-time, as if I was deliberately torturing myself by spending all of my weekdays at work and practically all of my nights in class. Oh, yes, it is indeed murderous, but I sigh – for I brought this upon myself.

A couple of weeks ago I brought up with my parents […]

Oo wee oo, I look just like Buddy Holly, woah-oh, and you’re Mary Tyler Moore.

I’m currently on a Weezer roll. It’s one of those times when you go through your iTunes library and find an artist from whom you only have a few songs. This was the case with Weezer. I’d heard of them, knew what they looked like, heard of all their albums, but never really listened to more than a few […]
