"Everything will be all right in the end. If it's not all right, it's not the end."

As much as I hated winter, I loved Winter Wonderland!

Haven't had a dream in a long time.

I know it's been a while, but I need something to write about.
And Tumblr wasn't really doing it for me.

I'm feeling enjoyably creative at the moment.
And I'm feeling very inspired by a bit of the old Morrissey.
So I thought I could write a personal review on some of Morrissey's work and the music he created whilst fronting the legendary Smiths.

Well, where to start?
I guess I should explain my first experience with a bit of Moz.
Me and my good friend James took a holiday with his family one summer to a cabin in Cornwall. It was an awesome holiday and good times where made. Understandably, it was a looooong car journey on the way there. So when me and James got bored of watching "Dude, Where's My Car?" we would either sleep or listen to music. Now at this point in my life, I was musically retarded. Listening to such bands as Bring me the Horizon.. >.>

So James' dad was the driver and the overall DJ of the car stereo. And he just so happened to have Morrissey's greatest hits CD with him so we would listen to that often whilst travelling and driving through Cornwall also.
The second the rock and roll-esque guitar intro to 'First of the Gang to Die' I was captivated by the rhythm of the drums, bass and keyboards that followed. Then Morrissey's original monotone voice came in and from then on, I was hooked. Every song would play after the other and I liked every single track. I was hooked from there on. So I got to now the singles more.

So I kinda left it there for a bit, was starting new term of college and started up with Deeds so I was more musically focused on that. It wasn't until around Christmas time I downloaded my first Smiths album; "The Queen is Dead".
Ofcourse I liked the songs but the one that stood out the most was 'There is a light that never goes out.' It was such a good song, everything was composed and written so well and I fell in love with the lyrics. And I'd recently shown off the sound of Morrissey to Jack. He loved him also. And really really couldn't stop listening to 'There is a light that never goes out'.

From there on, Morrissey and The Smiths was mine and Jack's thing. Like within a group of mates. Morrissey would pop up somewhere and they'd be reminded of us.
So in a way, his music brought me and Jack closer freinds. (No homo lol)

Dear blog;

I do believe I'm human again.
For years, I have not been able to cry from the utter bottom of my heart. But that changed this morning.

I decided to watch Toy Story 3. Mainly because I was bored and I felt like watching a film. And even though it was a crappy downloaded copy and the camera went out of focus every now and then, I loved every second of it.

The charm and the nostalgia I remember from the original Toy Story concept all came flooding back to me. It was actually one of the best feelings ever. No spoilers are going to be mentioned, but by the end of the film, I was crying so much. I was practically weeping like an emotional trainwreck. Because I feel ever since I was little, I developed an emotional bond with Toy Story. If I recall, it was the first film I saw in the cinema. Which in it's own way, was practically the foundation of my childhood. My mum often reminds me that I asked her to rewind it so we could watch it again when leaving the cinema.

Toy Story 3 was a pleasant reminder.

Delicious noms recipe #1.

Okay, you know when you're hungry and you scour the fridge freezer for something to eat?
I had some very bland ingredients at hand;
and Babybel.

Pretty boring, right?
This is when I decided to innovate and make possibly one of the greatest snacks ever.

Step 1; Make toast.
Step 2; Remove Babybel from packaging.
Step 3; Place 2 Babybels on one slice of toast.
Step 4; Place the toast with the Babybel on it in the microwave and heat for around 40 seconds.
Step 5; Remove toast from microwave, the Babybel should be melted. This will be quite hot so beware. If the Babybel isn't melted, your microwave probably isn't plugged in.
Step 6; Add any favourite condiments to the melted cheese for extra flavour. E.g; ketchup, lea and perrins..place the other slice of toast on top of the melted cheese toast.
Step 7; Slice in 2, serve and enjoy!

Not completely origial, but melted babybel cheese is amazing in a toastie.

I'll post some more delicious noms whenever I can be bothered.

Spontaneous summer inspired poetry.

The ambience of summer sunlight dances across the fields.
Cool, gentle breezes glide past me and almost push me toward the open plain.
I feel compelled to roll around the hills.
But I feel as if the natural beauty should remain untouched.
Clouds form in the sky like simple brush strokes.
Almost as if the wind is painting a picture on a clear blue canvas.

I've had a few, but then again, too many to mention..

Werd up guys.

The only reason I'm blogging less is because I'm lazy.
And nothing particularly interesting has happened as of recent.

Well, to be fair. A lot has. I just don't feel like enough has developed for me to fully sum up what's happening and how I feel.
In other words;

I'll be droning on for ages trying to explain. And it'll be long and confusing so there's no point for now.
I'm not purposely leaving anyone in the dark, because I'm in the dark with you.

All I can say is, there's another ship on the horizon.

That makes me sound like a pirate. Lol.

Oh yeah, Southend with Jack and Chris was awesome.
Another awesome daytrip to remember how awesome it was :D

You should have known, the price of evil.

I haven't blogged in a while.

Haven't had a psychological epiphany in ages either.
I miss it :(

My only thoughts at this moment in time is that I am loving Avenged Sevenfold's new single and I cannot wait until the new album is released.

Avenged Sevenfold are the only band I can legally buy music off of iTunes. x]
That's quite bad :(
Owell, fuck the corporate world BEEYATCH!

Wednesday, 12 May 2010

Tear me apart from the inside out.

Oh shit.
Oh my shit.


Deeds of the Dying are set to play the Underworld in Camden! :O :O

This could possibly be the biggest step up for us. Just the thought of how many world famous bands have performed on that stage is mind blowingly awesome.

I will keep everyone updated on when we sill play.
Should be very soon.

like maybe tomorrow.

I jest, that would be dumb.
But keep on your toes though.

I thought you didn't care.

I'm so gay

For Morrissey.

I got a haircut! Looks much better now.
I'm also ridiculously happy that I can style myself a quiff :D
Not so happy that it doesn't suit me as much as I had hoped it would..
Owell, I'm happy with it.
I look less trampy with shorter hair now I'm growing a beard.

Roll on Sunday.
Lie in and pay day.

Tuesday, 4 May 2010

There is no point saying this again.

Summer is really overrated.
Everyone is like;

"OMG Hurry up Summer!!"

Not to the festivals though, yay to the festivals of summer.

It'll be nice to actually have the confidence in going out in just jeans and t-shirt and not freezing my bollocks off come night fall.
But I'm not looking forward to the heat.
And I don't tan.


I'm actually more excited for winter wonderland than I am for Christmas x]
It's quite sad.
I've made a savings account just for the occassion.
I'm going to save £20 a month in my bank from now until December so I can go out and get absolutely wankered.

And we're gonna rent a hotel for a night.
Fuck going back on the tube when I probably would of spent more than over £100 on alcohol and german sausages.

Friday, 30 April 2010

I have decided to grow a beard.

Preparations have begun.
I'm not shaving 'til I get paid next month. :D

My church is not of silver and gold.

One of the best things bout Springtime;

Listening to the pitter patter of rain on the pavements is honestly one of the best things ever.

I spontaneously decided to take a jog around the graveyard this evening.
Weird decision, but a good one.
Even the slightest bit of exercise made me feel just that bit more productive.
Because I'm really fucking lazy.

I need to jog round the graveyard more. It's fun.
And it's somewhere to go where I can think with a clear mind and actually do something.

I feel really odd.
I'm not upset.
Or depressed.

I feel boring.

Emotional misalignment is the most accurate way I can describe how I'm feeling at the moment.

Isn't it funny how a really simple thing can make you feel just that little bit happier?
My cat is really cute and she makes me happy.

So this blog will now end on a happy note in place of a morbid and boring one.
Thank you, Princess. :)

This is the seaside town, that they forgot to close down..

This weekend has possibly been one of the best weekends I've had in a long time!
I've drunk so much alcohol in the past few days.
Not good.
But fun times have been made.
Very good.
And I also have a job! :D
Even better!
And my college interview went exceedingly well also.
The college is actually peng.
And it has bare nice equipment and shit.

I forgot how much I love 'The butterfly Effect'.
I think that film actually changed my perception on life.
Moving stuff..

I'll further describe my fantastic weekend some other time.
I'm very tired at the moment.
And I'm still full of beer and party food.

Thursday, 22 April 2010

A sailor's grave is all I crave.

I have two different interviews today! >.>
One for music college.
Another for a job.

Oh yeah, I'm getting a job.
Not to sound over confident or arrogant in any way, but I think I've pretty much got this job. Only because I applied yesterday morning and they asked me to come for an interview later that day.
Also because people often leave this job because it's boring.
I think it might be quite fun!
Talking on the phone to random people trying to persuade them to buy a kitchen!
Piece of piss! :D

My interview for the music course should be interesting.
Obviously, I'm gonna play drums.
Gonna rep up 'Deeds' by playing one of our songs.
Not sure which one. Probably 'Price of affliction' and 'There will be war'.
And I should sing too.
I'm thinking doing a Morrissey song xD
But I have no idea which one yet :|

I think Gill and Shaunie are awake now. They need to wake up anyway, I need to straighten my hair. I'm gonna try and convince Shaunie to lend me her adidas hoodie for today because it's peng.

Boredom does a lot to you.


Killed some time.
Need to stop putting off doing some work now >.>

Monday, 19 April 2010

Hate is a strong word.

That's all for now.

Friday, 16 April 2010

Heaven knows I'm miserable now.

I really am too soft.
I admit all my mistakes but there's always something else.

Apologising for things I have or haven't done seems a bit obsolete by now.
But I continue to do it anyway.

I'm at the stage where I'm willing to overcome all jealousy just for you to be happy.
I think that's probably one of the biggest signs of love for someone.
Even if I'm miserable, all that matters is your happiness.

After all, even if you do move on, I will always know you'll still love me.
Even by the tiniest bit.

As will I.

More than you will ever know...

Another moment is another eternity.

Really need to find something to do.
It's a beautiful day and I'm stuck inside.

Could go to Hilly Fields on my own.
Be a bit boring though.

Need to get up early tomorrow as well :(
But I'm going so I can get a new drum kit :D
Well, it's second hand.
But still pretty awesome!

Then the gig should be commencing later that day.
Really, really looking forward to it.
9blind's new album is pretty fucking immense.
Looking forward to hearing it live.

I think the weather is really reflecting on my mood recently, too.
Nice and sunny = Happy Eddie.
I love springtime.
Absolutely love it.
Best time of year.

I know, this blog is really pointless and shizz.
Just thought I needed something to keep updated.
I'm really slacking on blogging recently.
Probably due to having all ths time off college.


Saturday, 10 April 2010


Fuck it.
I'm sick and tired of all this.
I hate that I'M the bad guy.
Like everything I do is wrong.

Apparently me sticking up for myself is rude.

Fuck it.
I'm gonna enjoy James' birthday as much as I can.
Not gonna let my bad mood bring the groove down.

Although, despite all of the arguments, I still have feelings for her.
Of course she won't believe me.
And she no longer cares for me.
So that's great. (Y)

Eighteen seconds before sunrise..

UGH my god.
Sigur Rós are seriously growing on me at the moment.
The music they make is perfect.
It actually is.
Every time I hear a REALLY good song by them, my mind has an orgasm.

Go listen to them.
You won't regret it.

Recording is starting today!
Pretty awesome stuff!
We have around 4 and a half hours to get as much of the drums recorded as possible.
Might inspire myself in the morning, depending if I have the time.

Thursday is the gig at the Standard.
Should be pretty sah-weeet.
Really looking forward to playing again.

It sounds arrogant, but last band practice, we were all pretty tight.
In other words, we all agreed we sounded pretty good that day. x]
Which is good for us!
See y'all down there if you're coming! :)

"Broken hearts never mend." But fools never move on.

I've been feeling quite contained recently.
Probably due to outbursts of energy and positive attitudes toward general things.
So I've used up all of it in one go.

>Implying that made any sense. >.>

I've been having fun I guess. That's what matters most I think.
And I'm really looking forward to the gigs we have lined up in the following weeks too!
Should be a rather good shindig.

On a somewhat off topic note, I've decided to make another blog soon.
It's main purpose would be to follow all music the band is progressing through following up to recording and gigging and what not.

Might make another one so I can review albums and movies and give my general input on why I think they are good or bad!

Watching 'Batman Forever' on VCR! :O
I'm watching a mediocre film on an obsolete video format!

Next I'll be recording my favourite songs off the radio stations using a tape recorder!
Nah, that's effort.

Tomorrow should be good. Here's hoping it turns out all fan-dabby-dozy :)

Wednesday, 31 March 2010

Reader discretion is advised.


I am in a very happy-go-lucky mood right now.

I think it's the fact that there is no college for 3 and a half weeks.


Wow, I'm enthusiastic.


I am looking forward to going to southend with teh posse.
I am actually really excited :)
And we have a few gigs coming up, too!
Happy fucking times!

I have said fuck a lot in this post.
I don't usually swear this much in a blog.
I'm sorry, mum :(

Now, I am off to slay the mighty GOHMA in the Temple of Time.
In other words, I am going round Jack's house to play Zelda.

I'm wearing my triforce t-shirt just for the occassion. ^_^

And also coz the triforce is fucking awesome.


Sunday, 28 March 2010

Send me the pillow, the one that you dream on. And I'll send you mine...

This is going to be my own personal review on our gig at the 'All Saints' church.

The sound quality was appalling.
The church's PA system fucked up so we brought in ours. Was working fine until the band's bassist before us plugged in their bass into our PA and blew it!
So no-one could hear George.
My pedal broke halfway during our second song so that was pretty gay.
Luckily another drummer handed me another pedal. :)

That was everything bad really.

Now, onto the GOOD stuff.
The crowd.
Oh my god, the crowd.
The best people who are at gigs are obviously the fans.
But theses fans were on it.

To start, they started chanting 'DEEDS' before we walked on stage.
And I heard a few people chanting along to 'The Children's Playground' and 'There will be war'. Which is fucking awesome. x]

There was a wall of death apparently, but I couldn't see.
I saw a fucking HUGE circle pit. I'm not even hyping that up.
It was brixton standard's man.
Well, size wise. Just less people x]

And people were jumping up on stage in their undies and shit. It was CAH-RAY-ZAY.

The fans made the gig. So on behalf of all of 'Deeds of the Dying', cheers for going hard and making it a night to remember!

Sweetness, I was only joking.

Okay, I'm obviously extremely disposable to you.
Someone like me can just fade out from your life.
Well done.

Not like we had memories and shit. Not like we were in love.
Eurgh.. >.>

Friday, 26 March 2010

Will your smile still open my heart?

I'm in college at the moment so I'll keep this brief.

I'm pretty happy.
I'm coping well.

Stuff's going aight. College is improving. I'm enjoying the work more.
I feel more productive and positive. Which is always good!
I have my down moments, but hey.

Last night was pretty jokes.
My toe's is still a bit soggy. x]
Not really, but it's so funny when you actually think about it.
Like thinking about what happened then was like really... bizarre.
But it was pretty funny.

I'm glad Shaunie, Gill and Petch appreciated us going out of our way to make sure they got back alright.
Only took me and Luke about forty minutes to get home.
Slept like a fucking baby I can safely say.

I think that's my good deed for the week :)

Speaking of deeds! Tomorrow 'Deeds of the Dying' are playing 'All Saints Church' in Barnet. I'm more looking forward to actually sitting down and playing than the atmosphere or whatever.
I miss playing the drums. >.>

My final thought; 'Pink Maggit' by Deftones is the fucking sexiest song ever for me at this point in time. Go listen to it. Mortals.

Tuesday, 23 March 2010

Your hollow gaze has shifted past my eyes.

I actually am so grateful for my friends. Honestly, I would actually be so morbid and depressed all the time if I didn't have them.
Just being with them makes me happy.

It just goes to show that I have actually matured.

Like, before, I would be dependant on a relationship to make me truly happy. Don't get me wrong, I love being in a relationship. All the lovey dovey stuff makes me feel wanted and special for once.
I realise I can have this feeling with my friends. Minus the lovey stuff.

That's all I need at the moment.
Gonna wait a while I think.
Just have fun. Be girly with the girls. Be manly with the men.


It made me feel slightly happy today to know that I'm still on your mind.
Even if it is bothering you, at least you haven't forgotten me.

If I could be who you wanted.

This weekend has been.. eventful. xD

Friday, I went to Bar Form for the first time. Never actually thought I would get in but I did. That was fun. If you go to Bar Form, expect like twenty people asking you for a lighter. Lighter's apparently don't exist to people who smoke in Bar Form.
Anyway, had a few drinks then bopped home.

Saturdayy.. I spent with none other than Jack. Oh, and Adam and Hasan. That was fun! We played Zelda, listened to Morrissey and watched 'Jay and Silent Bob strike back.' xD

So the usual really!
Sunday, I had to wake up at a reasonable time to make my way home and shower before band practice.
Band practice was very...inspired ;)
We went through the usual songs and made a setlist for our upcoming gig at the All Saints in Barnet this Saturday.
Started some recording again too. Expect a song finished sometime in the near future!

After band practice, I made my way to Shaunie's house. Gill and Luke were there too.
Of course when I turned up, I knew there was going to be alcohol involved.
Not that I was complaining! At least they were drinking something else and not just vodka.
Tequila is some good stuff. I didn't realise how immune I was to the burning taste of Mexico's finest.

I stayed round that night and made my way to college the next day. I was so tired man. Not even funny.
I met Shaunie and Gill after I finished and we went to Petch's house. Was pretty standard. Petch has a REALLY nice house! And I had a little snoop around the spare room, being the nosy bastard I am xD

So glad I have the day off today, needed the sleep. I am currently awaiting for Gill to pick up her phone so I know when her and Shaunie are coming here.
Until then, I'm gonna eat and wash.

Sound like a plan? I think so. :)

Wednesday, 17 March 2010

I could float here forever. In this room we can't touch the floor.


Not alot to say at this moment in time unfortunately.
I've been in one of those un-productive moods for like a full blown week.

But just to keep you updated; I'm alive.
I'll probably write some more pointless blog entries about my days soon.
Probably after I tidy my room.
I always seem to get a good vibe of creativity and good moods when I know I've accomplished the task of tidying my room. x]

On a separate note, Shaunie's "suprise" party was rather awesome xD
Didn't get too drunk, wasn't that well to begin with. So I didn't really want to make it worse.
I saw Luke smoke and drink for like the first time EVER.
It was really funny.
And he was really smart for mixing drinks!

Normally, people would mix some drinks like beer and cider, right?
Well not Luke!


(all measurements are to estimate)

Of course by the end of the night he spewed.
Like everywhere.
It stunk of cheese.
Bad cheese.
Or good cheese to some people.

We all stayed at Shaunie's and watched Blades of Glory and Dodgeball.
And also to drink another bottle of gin to our alcohol CV.

I fell asleep pretty quick. But woke up a few times pretty easily due to Luke throwing up several times in the toilet.
Woke up the next day feeling more ill, had a mega sore throat.
No way was I was going to band practice that day.

Still kinda recovering from that tbh.
But I'm surviving.
Like I said, I'm not dead.

Wednesday, 10 March 2010

Do you hate me, Jesus?

I promised myself I wouldn't moan about my love troubles and relationship problems on here.
But I need somewhere to write don't I?
Better out than in I guess.

I've basically unintentionally hurt the girl I love.
Not gonna go too into it. There's so much detail.
The worst part is, she's lost all trust for me.
And she won't believe I love her.

(Before people assume this, I did not cheat on her. It's just an unfortunate turn of events.)
Maybe, given time, I can be forgiven.

I hope so.
I really hate the thought of losing her.
I hate the thought of knowing she's no longer my other half.
I hate the thought that none of this was meant to happen.
In a way, I hate myself for letting it happen.

I apologise to everyone for this extremely emotional post.
Just needed to let it out.

Tuesday, 9 March 2010

She looks like the real thing. She tastes like the real thing.

Today was really cool. I wanted to spend some of my birthday money and Jack kindly came along with me to Camden.
Jack needed to sell a few goods to computer exchange before we departed. He had around 10 items to sell, all ranging from DVD's to Games to a Blu Ray controller. But for some reason, it took around a good half an hour for the guy to ring it all up and give Jack a payment. He got around £74, which isn't all that bad!
We ventured to Camden town and went to Burger King. I know, I am actually dieting at the moment, that's why I'm being SUPER strict for the next few days. A chicken royale can't be that bad, right?
It probably is >.>

So anyway, after my meal of SIN, me and Jack lurked about the Camden Marketplace. I found this really nice coat for £45, but I thought I'd have a better look around first.
We looked almost everywhere for a nice coat, so we came back to the guy and I hassled the price of the coat down to £29 :D
I'm a bit of a Jew. ;)

After that, we made our way to Oxford street.
Jack wanted to buy some better 'going out clothes' so we went to Topman and H&M.
Unfortunately, he didn't find anything he liked enough so he's saving the money.
We went to Soho again. Haha!
Only strolled through though. Didn't go in any of the sex shops. x]

Then we thought it would be awesome if we went to Hamley's and release the inner child within us. We got lost so I pretended to be a tourist and asked a couple for directions there.
It seems to work better because people get the sense of sympathy for a lost tourist.
On our way there, we came across what seemed to be an simple sweet shop. When we got in there, It was absolutely HUGE! It has to be the poshest shop I have ever been in.
I honestly expected to hear like violins an stuff over the intercom.
I saw a jar of marmalade that was ten quid.


I'd rather buy a normal jar of marmalade and shove it up my arse than buy that.
I guess if I was stinking rich, I'd buy it just coz I could.

We got to Hamley's and observed the awesome toys and such. We seemed to be more fascinated by the replica Harry Potter wands. xD
I was in awe when I saw a 10 carat replica of the ring from the Lord of the Rings.
I guess that proves how much of a geek I am..

I've had 'Fake Plastic Trees' on repeat all day.
I'm honestly in love with this song at the moment.
I'll probably get bored of it eventually and move on to another song.

Sunday, 7 March 2010

He doesn't look a thing like Jesus..

Well! Where to begin really!
I am now officially seventeen years old! Not a great age, but I can start learning to drive soon so that's cool.
I celebrated my birthday this year with the best people ever. My friends. Honestly. I really don't know where I'd be without them. They are a lovely bunch. :)

I started my day by waking up at reasonable time. Purely because I thought Shaunie and Gill where arriving at my house for around 12. I don't think they arrived until around 2? But that doesn't matter. What DOES matter is the fact that Shaunie and Gill had made me a birthday cake with a picture of an owl on it! The look on my face was indescribable! I could of burst into tears of happiness! But we'll get to the eating of the cake later.
We made our way to town and met up with Petch. Then we generally bummed around town until it was time for Nando's.

We discovered that above the sweet shop in Enfield Town, there was a tea room! Shaunie was literally so excited. She was really enjoying every little detail in there. We couldn't sit in a tea room and not drink tea could we? So I bought everyone a cup of tea.
Petch seemed to enjoy the milk more than the tea. Haha!
Our friends Heather and Liam work in this sweet shop also. Heather served us our tea, and when we were finished, she gave us our bill. I opened up the bill, and it read; " 4 teas, £4.

Happy Birthday for tomorrow, Eddie!

-From Liam and Heather :)

Honestly, that unexpected sign of kindness warmed my heart to the core and I felt so happy.
I feel like I could of wept! xD

Well, moving on. Before our meal, we all headed back to my house because I needed to get some money. And also I very charitably gave away some old, unwanted t-shirts, boxers and jumpers to Shaunie, Gill and Petch. xD
James and Kieran were at James' house so we went and met them at the bus stop to go to town.
When we were done with that, we made our way to the awesome eatery called none other than the almighty Nando's!

Jack, Chris and Tyler had been waiting in 'The George' for us to arrive and we booked our table.
Even waiting for the food was fun! We passed around a metal pole thing with our mouths. Kind of like pass the parcel, but without the parcel.
James captured some pretty good moments on his camera too.
The food was heavenly. I was really hungry anyway so I wolfed it down pretty quick. Then Tyler and Jack convinced the restaurant staff to sing Happy Birthday to me. Which triggered a chain reaction of the surrounding tables to sing Happy Birthday too.
Then it was time to cut the cake!
I was kind of sad cutting such an awesome piece of bakery, but in the end it was delicious.
Me and Shaunie cut it together as a newlywed couple would cut a wedding cake xD

When we had finished in Nando's, we stood outside and met up with Luke. And then Tim strolled along! I was really pleasantly surprised t see so many of my friends that night!
We asked him what he was up to, and he said he was on his way to the Hop Poles to see a free local gig.
We thought we might as well bop along because it's free and it's down the road from my house. The gig was fun, Petch and Shaunie made me look like a twat in front of everyone by making me dance to the cover songs the band was playing. But I had a lot of fun.
Afterwards, I managed to convince my mum to let Shaunie, Gill, Petch, James and Kieran to stay. It worked! Everyone got to sleep. Eventually.

And the actual day of my birthday was more slow paced than leading up to it. We all woke up, had some tea, I opened a few cards. I got some money and an ipod dock!
I'm using it now to listen to Morrissey.

Band practice was good also. We got the new song finished and it's sounding good. I'm really proud the way the band has progressed musically.
But anyway, I'm droning on.

This is a big post to make up for me not posting yesterday.
There are some moments I forgot to mention, but those were the ones the stood out most.

Friday, 5 March 2010

You will lead us to the black gate.

Again, another disappointing day.
On the way back from college I got the wrong train. I went all the way to fucking Tottenham Hale.
I decided to get a 192 bus because I figured it might be quicker, it still took around 2 and a half hours to get back.
Because I got back quite late, me and Sian decided to give the cinema today a miss, which sucks, but we're going again on Sunday.
I decided to join along with Jack and Chris down the pub. All was well for a while! I bought a drink, Drank it, and then I decided to order another. I got ID'd then I was asked to leave :/

But whatever, I bought some beers and now I'm watching 'Lord of the Rings: Two Towers'.
Lord of the Rings makes me happy :)
It is to my understanding that Gill and Shaunie are coming to my house tomorrow to give me a birthday present. I'm quite excited because I have no idea what it is yet xD

Tomorrow is going to be good. I can tell. Just being with my friends is gonna be awesome.
And also I haven't been Nando's in fucking ages.

Follow the Siren's song.

Not much to write about today, Or yesterday even. Weather was okay to begin with so I decided to be brave and go out in a t-shirt, jeans and shirt. But then it got cold. Very, very cold.
Me and Gill finally did what I promised her since we first met. We went shoe shopping. I didn't buy any shoes then but we looked and tried some on. And I dyed my hair.
So yeah pretty boring stuff.

My song for the week is currently 'It's Hard to Speak without a Tongue' by Parkway Drive.
I'm watching Rocky Horror Picture show as I write this but I'm already starting to feel very sleepy so I should probably re-watch this another time.

Hello there, Mr Owl!

Well, today was a bit of a disappointment. I wake up to see the sunshine had vanished and it's still winter temperatures! Standing waiting for a train to college was horrible, it was really cold and the train was delayed.
But anyways, I got to college, had first lesson and went to break.
I had Fine Art next, which was cool because I enjoy Fine Art and I had fun drawing an owl with aristocratic features. Haha!
When suddenly, someone in my class mentions that there are owls in the canteen! Obviously, my ears perked up almost instantly, and I asked if this where true. Turns out it was! There where around 4-5 different owls sitting there on display with a special Bird Exhibition! The look of joy on my face and the excitement in my eyes was painfully apparent to my college friends. I have a few pictures of me holding a Snow White Barn Owl. And even though in most of them I look godawful, I'm listing them below.
The breeds of owl that where in the canteen where; One Barn Owl, 2 Eurasian Eagle Owls and one baby Owl! It was so adorable I wanted to put it in my pocket and take it home!
Oh, and also I'm posting the picture of the Aristocratic owl I drew in fine art too :)

Overall, this was the highlight of my week so far! Still have the weekend to look forward to! :D

The result of my creative mind orgy.

I'm not usually good at writing lyrics for songs.
But On Saturday night/Sunday morning I had a breakthrough.
It is a bit cheesy and lame in some parts but hey, it's not too bad right?
Well it's for you to decide anyway.

We wear the mask that grins and lies,
It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,
This debt we pay to human guile,
With torn and bleeding hearts we smile.

Finding life in an empty heart,
Will immerse your thoughts and break apart,
Deceiving the living and aiding the dead,
Insanity reigns and rivers run red,

Pain is temporary,
But glory is eternal,
Fighting for home,
From a smouldering inferno.

We wear the mask that grins and lies,
It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,
This debt we pay to human guile,
With torn and bleeding hearts we smile.

Staring up into the darkened sky,
This world could disappear in a blink of an eye,
Gather your might and take sword in hand,
To defend from great evil,
And save your home land.

Restless souls wander where they don't belong..

We wear the mask that grins and lies,
It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,
This debt we pay to human guile,
With torn and bleeding hearts we smile.

Oh and by the way, if your a geek like me, you may or may not have noticed that this is loosely based on the game; "The Legend of Zelda, Majora's Mask."
It's nerdy, I know. But Zelda games really do have that much of an impact on my life.

My 17th Spring.

I woke up today after one of the best night's sleep I've had in a long time to be pleasantly surprised by the warm and sunny weather!
So naturally, I took advantage of the weather and went to Hilly fields with my good friend James.
In the sunlight, the temperature was quite warm and cosy, however stepping into the shadows is quite chilly.

So yeah, nothing special occured, just observed the blossoming flowers of spring time and the clear blue skies.
My expectation's for this year's spring are high. Not only because I'm sick of Winter, but also because Spring is my favourite time of year.

My outlook for the week is optimistic and with a hint of excitement. The reason for this is because Friday I'm going to the cinema with Sian to see the new version of Alice in Wonderland! I'm mainly looking forward to seeing Sian than to the actual film, but it does look visually appealing and entertaining.
I'll probably do my own little review on the film on here afterwards.
Oh, and also Sunday is my 17th birthday! Saturday I'm spending with some friends to celebrate because I have a band practice on my birthday in the evening. I shouldn't really complain because we have a gig a few days after, but also because I'm really eager to finish the new song and to see how it turns out!

That's all for today. Quite pleased with my first blog, and it's the first of many!
