Two Doors Down

14 Feb

I wish i was in love with a girl who lived two doors down… i wish i was in love…

I’ve had this song on repeat for the past week or so, it’s wonderful, and seeing as it is that oh so sickening commercialization of love day it seems rather appropriate to post today!

I love how fantastically shit the video is, it’s brilliant. I feel like i should watch it with a kind of car crash embarrassment but i can’t help but find it really cool! and am now more than a little attracted to this band!

Seeing as it’s also my birthday today, have a bonus tune!

Happy Valentine’s Day 🙂

Oh I neglect this blog so…

18 Jan

Just like my sleep, my dearest journal, the withering plant on my window-sill, the half-finished paintings awaiting me on my desk, the big box of ideas on top of my wardrobe that i just haven’t got round to implementing yet, the pile of films i haven’t watched yet, the pile of cd’s i haven’t listened to yet, the pile of books i haven’t read yet, the trash i keep forgetting to take out, the bathroom sink i haven’t cleaned the ink stains off yet, the pile of magazines i haven’t cut up yet, the 2011 Amanda Palmer calendar stuck on May that i still haven’t taken done yet……. and all those little things in my lift that get overlooked when i get busy and my mind explodes just a little bit each day.

NEGLECT NO MORE!

See you on the other side…

 

For now, have a really beautiful photo of Amanda Palmer in an Australian yoga sandwich……

This is my new favourite thing on the internet.

I’ve watched every morning for the past two weeks.

It is the best get-out-of-bed-and-start-your-day-with-something-awesome song!

The original song, by Cat Stevens, is played during the credits and all credit is due to him this song (and yes i know this sounds horrendously cheesy) speaks to my soul! And for me, watching Amanda Palmer play through a bunch of her wonderful fans, in glorious ninja stylings, to the tune of the ocean in the fading sunlight is heart-breakingly beautiful perfection.

 

p.s. Amanda i do want be you. If i wish for it hard enough do you think it will happen?!

Amanda Palmer – HMV Picture House, Edinburgh – 17.7.2013

22 Jul

On Wednesday i donned my wonderful TARDIS skirt and headed out to see Amanda Fucking Palmer!

I hadn’t been to a concert in a while and this was certainly the one to get me back into the swing of it! As ever, everything was wonderful: from her brilliant supports (Horndog Brass Band, Jherek Bischoff, Simple Pleasure and Bitter Ruin), to sweaty jumping around to Nirvana covers, to making cute new friends in the crowd and all the bits of glitter in between was just perfect. This was truly the best prelude to the house party… and unbelievably made me MORE excited!!! Thank you Amanda 🙂

This is a really beautiful clip of Amanda Palmer and Hannah O’Reilly playing Ampersand together in a living room full of wonderful peaceful looking people. I love how the natural setting of this makes the music sound all the sweeter.
