Something must break

If you want to expand your mind…


I just thought up a genius idea! At least it is to me. What if I made an arrangement, where all of you saved up about…£5 each month or each week, and then I told you something you ought to get for that price or less! What do you all think of it?

Most of the time, it would probably be like a CD or a DVD at Play.com, where they don’t charge you for shipping. It would be a great way to expand your collection and expand your taste and knowledge.

Let me know and get back to me. I could just do like a post a week where I recommended an item and told you a bit about it and so on.

I guess you can sort of call the whole idea for a “purchase club”, just like there are book clubs and so on.


Come As You Are, As A Friend, As I Want You To Be


Title: NirvanaCome As You Are

So, I’m not posting a lot lately. It’s not you, it’s me, to say it like that. It’s mostly because every time I get on my computer now and I go online, I let it open my previously closed tabs, because I’m meaning to buy something at the Autumn sale of Play.com. I’m not precisely sure what to purchase there quite yet, but I’m a hell of a lot closer than I was when I started watching.

Anyways, I don’t have a hundred things to tell you now anyways. At least not that I can think of. Dylan rocks, just so y’all know, and I like making and playing music. Also, I love my girlfriend. There’s pretty much what you need to know.

I don’t really know what to post about, and those kind of posts are so bad, that I’ll stop now.
BUT! I could include this great picture I took at the beginning of this day:

And yes, that’s the view from my bedroom.

Question:

Do you have Nirvana’s “Nevermind” in your collection? And yes, I mean LEGALLY! Like, not-downloaded for free


When I Call You Up, Your Line’s Engaged


Title: The Beatles – You Won’t See Me

I thought the title fits how it’s like a lot lately. When I try to talk to people, I have to wait for a long time, if I GET TO talk AT someone AT ALL! Luckily, Play.com has a autumn sale, so my solitude has something to do in the mean time.

Photo by me

I took the photo today. It was just filled with seagulls outside our window, so I took it with my Sony Ericsson W995 from our living room. I didn’t get to capture them all in one shot, but this was a good shot, I thought. I like the photo myself, at least, and that’s what matters the most to me.

This week, TWO of my best friend’s (but not THE best friend) has birthday. I didn’t know they had it at the same week, but it’s kinda cool. And easier for me to remember. Especially since it’s right after my ten days of being allowed to feel sorry for myself or “suicide days” or whatever you wanna call them. They went really well this year though, so I’m pleased with that.

I’m sorry about the lack of “Most Special Tweets Of The Week”, but today I looked through an entire week of tweets, and I think I retweeted over 100 of those I looked at (and by the way, it took me TWO HOURS to look through them all, and then some!) One of the tweets even made me buy something! Or…pre-order something, that is.

The thing I pre-ordered was the upcoming debut album by Fistful Of Mercy on CD, including a T-shirt by the band, and if I’m so lucky that there was less than 300 people who had pre-ordered before me, I get a signed poster! I really hope I get one of those, but it’s not very likely, unfortunately. Perhaps fortunately for the band, though, since it was a couple of days since that was tweeted.

Album of the post: The Beatles – Rubber Soul (a DEFINITE MUST-have! I didn’t like it the first time(s) I listened through it myself, but when I heard through it in the new stereo mixes, I started loving it, and it’s now probably the album I song-for-song like the best.)

Question:
Is there any albums being released this year you’d recommend people to get?


I’m The Air You Breath, The Food You Eat


Title: The Doors – The Changeling

Photo by me

The photo was taken while I was listening to and recording in to my computer, the album “McCartney” by Paul McCartney. I liked the album more than I expected to, so that was quite a nice surprise. It’s always better when you like an album better than you think you’ll do, than worse than you think you’ll do, especially if it’s an album you’ve gained a lot of expectations to before listening through it, or you’ve listened through it once several years ago and liked it then, but didn’t like it as well as you remembered when you listen to it again years afterwards. That’s happened to me quite a few times.

I’ve been spending this day watching “The Searchers” (my first John Wayne movie), reading about The Doors and the final days of Jim Morrison‘s life (through the magazine “Classic Rock Magazine“, which I faithfully reads and buys quite often) and that’s about it. I’m trying to get well again, which takes some time, but I’m at least better today than I were yesterday. There’s one good thing though, and that is that this sickness came THIS weekend, since my girlfriend was otherwise occupied anyways now, so it’s okay that I couldn’t meet her and that I can’t be a lot on my computer. Or at least more okay, that is.

Just shortly, let me tell you that you should REALLY be getting the two last albums by the ORIGINAL Doors, “Morrison Hotel” and “L.A. Woman“. I like the “Hotel” better than “L.A. Woman”, and seems to be quite alone in that opinion, but they’re both essential albums, especially if you like blues rock and the voice and sound of The Doors. Or if you just like classic rock and want something by The Doors.

I’m thinking of getting me some CD’s soon, but I’m not quite sure which ones to buy. It’s not always easy to know when you’ve got a very diverse taste, because there’s almost always too many CD’s I want, and so I have to use a lot of time to figure out EXACTLY which CD’s I’ll get this time, and which ones’ll be left behind for that time. Some CD’s end up never being bought, despite my want for them, but it’s a different wanting than for others, perhaps. It’s like that for the two first solo albums by Iggy Pop (“The Idiot” and “Lust For Life”) for example. Some things can even in the end become something you forgot why you wanted in the first place.

I’ll leave you to it then, and hope you’re all having a GREAT weekend!


When You’ve Made Your Mind Up Forever To Be Mine


Title: Donovan – Sunshine Superman

I love Sunshine Superman. It’s a great song. I think I’d love the album

as well, but I just don’t have the great want for it at any time I’m really looking for music to buy, which is kinda sad, because I think it would suit me fine.

ANYWAYS, I’m broke now, so I can’t really buy it now, and I’ve been so stupid that I’ve been looking at this sale on Play.com. It’s a great website for my kind of stuff to buy. The only problem right now is that I don’t have the £20 I wanna spend there (or actually, I wanna spend…£37,93). £20 is approximately $30.

So, what more do I really have to say now? Not much, really. I’m just alone right now in every way, so I’m posting to feel less alone. I’m thinking  a lot lately about my life and everything about it, so I feel like I’m not very interesting lately. I’m becoming a bit of a selfish person, but maybe it’s just me recognizing it right now. I’ve probably always been selfish. I just don’t know what to do about many things right now, but things have a way of sorting themselves out. Remember that, my friend.
