You're not from New York City, you're from Rotherham

So, I am currently in Denver visiting one of my close friends Kelsey. It's been tradition for quite a while for us to see Arctic Monkeys together every time they come anywhere close to us. And by I mean anywhere close to us, I mean anywhere in the US. Come on, we've been fans since 2004. Now, that is dedication, or stalking. The line there is blurred.

Anyways, so I've been sick for the past two weeks which has been BEYOND awesome due to all the traveling I've been doing and never sleeping. My body is finally saying "awww hell naahhh" to my "can't stop won't stop" motto. Before I left for Denver I developed a stomach bug on top of the cold I've been trying to kick for a while. This morning I woke up feeling like death. So the majority of my day has been spent lying around the apartment with Kelsey's crazy yet lovable cat Laika. 

This is what the afternoon has been like. 


I finally decided to try and make my day somewhat productive and not mopping around the place like I've lost my long lost lover in the war. 

I have to get into gig mode, so I can relive my teenage years at the gig tonight. Love that Kelsey and I are going to be the oldest broads up there surrounded by 16 year olds with Xs on there hands...

Rumour has it that the guys have been resurrecting "Dancing Shoes" and "Fake Tales of San Francisco". If this is true, I should probably wear some Depends to the show, because I will pee my pants. Most likely do to my water consumption but whatever...

you eyes have wept a thousand tears...

I saw BRMC this past weekend when I was Chicago and words can't even describe how amazing the show was. Proper post about it later but for now, this song "Fire Walker" (and yes I do have a serious obsession with Twin Peaks)...what a hell of an opener. Rob's lyrics are just so amazing to me and just brings out  many emotions especially when I think of that one special person, the one that I lost my grip on and want to know what all went wrong; the what's, how's and why's? Don't we all wonder that, even if it is not with a love one, just life itself begs the question. Maybe were all too blind to see...
ph. Me  (Chicago 17th May, The Vic taken on my mobile)

"And maybe I'm too blind to see,
The fire is all that walks with me.
And maybe I'm too starved and weak
But what's inside of you's the same as me."

 I hope you guys like the new layout. Still toying around with things, but for now I think I like it. I am going to TRY and update a lot more. So keep checking and please comment and let me know how you like certain things! I have a few fun posts in the works for summer that will be followed by a playlist. Get excited. I know I am.

forget forgiveness, forget all the rules

Chairlift has somehow re-entered my heart. 
As of late I've been playing "Take It Out On Me" on REPEAT. 
Just fits my vibe perfectly right now.

get on your dancing shoes, there's one thing on your mind

Feeling very nostalgic about "the old days" and how much fun our little group had. 
Although, it was only a few years ago, it seems like forever ago. 
All we cared about was having the time of our lives; traveling, dancing, drinking whiskey and going to gigs. University and work fits in there somewhere...

Need more of this in my life right now.

Remember when I used to shoot 30 second videos on a crappy point and shoot a couple of years ago? Well, I found them.

Lastly, thinking about doing some "vlogs" again? Those were entertaining and by entertaining I mean stupid...

And just random stuff in general. Oh, the blue line Jackson stop, you'll forever remain classy.

it’s sacrilege

Really into this song at the moment. The video...still undecided.
