I write this on a rare evening off. I’m currently wading my way through a 63-hour week. It’s a pretty useful distraction though, I have to say, as I certainly need my time filling these days. I’ve got myself into a bit of a routine (well obviously – my life is one big routine, broken down into sub-routines), which includes a midday fashion fix. I mean, got to start planning for when I’m rich, right? [The image that caught my eye today is below. I don’t know who she is but she’s reppin’ that jumper and can I be her?] Meanwhile, I have also been known to treat myself to a diet coke, a coffee, five minutes on the balcony looking across the rest of the city, or a quick walk around the next-door art gallery. My headphones are a permanent fixture. Not sure what I’d do without those.
Pokey, lad. There are no words for how much I love/how many times I have watched this. Obviously I went to see them when they were in Manchester a few months ago. [According to the photo evidence it was actually in March – sorry, but where does the time go.] And they’re playing Liverpool in October. Obviously I’m going again. Guess who my favourite is. There’s a clue in the photos. His face!
It’s funny, I’ve been craving this song all day. I finally listened to it on my way home from a long day and thought I must post this. Then I remembered posting about The Beatles once, vaguely touching on how big a part they play. So I looked up the post. And weirdly/sure enough, I’ve used the same song in the title. Look…here. Now I would never be so bold as to tread upon the favourites topic where this band is concerned, but I think this turn of events proves that I’ll Follow The Sun is up there. And right now, that says everything.
when you’re sad and you’re lonely and it all turns out wrong,
when you’ve got the fear.
and when you’re no longer searching for beauty or love,
just some kind of life with the edges taken off.
when you can’t even define what it is you’re frightened of,
this song will be here.
