i just really love the black keys. it's interesting to look back on the way my music taste has evolved over the years. it's gone from the killers and franz ferdinand to the strokes and the black keys.

they just played on conan, and i'm just now growing to realize the attachment that i have to these goofballs. it's only been eight months or so since i became a fan, but watching them on tv, following the whole journey of brothers, seeing them in concert, seeing them win their first grammys....it's been a fantastic time. i don't know what it is, i sort of want to curl up in a ball and cry...it's that "wow, they're going to be gone for a bit now, and i'm really going to miss them."

i think this might actually be the first time that i've loved all members of a band equally. they have the best sense of humor. they work hard. they both cute in a really wrong, weird way. they're both my background on my phone. it's not the looney frontman obsession, i just love patrick carney and dan auerbach. although dan is cute as a button, beard or not...when i'm feeling down, i just think, "hey, dan auerbach made eye contact with me and he gave me the eye smile." it helps.

they're going into the studio in march. they said potentially a new album in the fall. it won't be long, i know...the sweet boys do deserve a break after this whirlwind year that they've had. i hate sounding like the whiney, overly emotional silly bitch...but i love them and i appreciate them and i thank them for being so damn awesome. this is what i live for, so you can't expect me not to experience these sorts of feelings. right?

oh the bittersweet feeling of an era coming to an end. i measure my life in albums.

so, yes. i needed to express this so i could sleep properly. this is one of the many things on my mind, but this seemed more appropriate to share on the internet.

i don't believe in proper punctuation or grammar, i write as my mind thinks, don't break the flow, you know, all that.... plot lines are silly too, i like images and pure emotions

silly lovey slightly smutty writingCollapse )

Today has been really, really terrible. Why?
1) I dreamed that Julian died, and I'm still shaken up by that.
2) I nearly ran out of gas on the way to school, which caused my already raging anxiety to explode.
3) My advisor wasn't in her office when I went to see her, which was the only reason I drove down there.
4) So, I went to photo lab instead, but photo lab was closed when I told it would be open, and it was the last day to make prints. I have an uncompleted portfolio.
5) I thought I left my cell phone at the gas station when I was getting lottery tickets, so I drove back down there. It wasn't there. I came home. It was sitting on the bathroom counter and I hadn't lost it at all.

IDK, I guess it's not all that bad, but all the little things pile up. I guess whenever you have a dream about your favorite musician dying, you should just stay and bed and not live the day out.

i feel like i have a lot of things going for me and so many opportunities in my hands

but my personality and my short circuiting brain and my screwed up neurotransmitters make everything impossible.

i hate it...i hate it all.

This decade is going to be positively sublime; I can feel it in my bones.  That spark of hope and optimism that I have right now is often missing in my soul, and I am so thankful to see something other than impending doom.

OH, and I'm seeing JULIAN. CASABLANCAS (aka, senor el hottie. hehe, idk) in THIRTEEN DAYS!!!! I might catch his second NYC show since I'll be there anyway. Who knows.

Just wanted to check in on this memorable day of our lives. I sincerely hope everyone gets exactly what they want this year and in this decade in general. <333

ciao bellas.

Day 03 → Your favourite television programme

My favourite TV programme is...


It's amazing. I could watch the reruns on end and never get tired of them. The show is hysterically funny. It's pretty much the only thing that will get a genuine laugh out of me. They make cars interesting. I now find myself recognizing fancy cars, and having the odd ability to ramble off facts and different things about them. It's weird.

And Richard Hammond is l-l-l-lovely. <3

Day 02 → Your favourite movie

My favourite movie is the beautiful classic, Breakfast at Tiffany's. It's so fun and inspiring. One of my favourite scenes is where Holly talks about her no name cat and how she doesn't feel she belongs anywhere.

Holly: He's all right! Aren't you, cat? Poor cat! Poor slob! Poor slob without a name! The way I see it I haven't got the right to give him one. We don't belong to each other. We just took up one day by the river. I don't want to own anything until I find a place where me and things go together. I'm not sure where that is but I know what it is like. It's like Tiffany's.

Paul: Tiffany's? You mean the jewelry store.

Holly: That's right. I'm just CRAZY about Tiffany's!

I really relate. :) So, if you haven't seen this movie, you really need to. It's a tradition of mine to watch it every year, the day after Christmas.  I don't know how that started, but it just did.

From my bb, dustland_thrill .

For one month, post/share:

Day 01 → Your favourite song

Well, my favourite song changes. I have songs that kind of all compile together into what I call "my favourite songs of all time". At this point in time, I'm really digging Julian Casablancas. I doubt I had to say that to make it known, but alas, it is true.

Here we have Glass by Mr. Casablancas. :)

It's just a very nostalgic, bittersweet tune.  It gets me every time.  The lyrics are beautiful and honest.  It's not honest in that, right in your face kind of way.  It's poetically honest, but still poignant.  I find Julian's ability to pen a striking song without it being too emotionally brash very impressive.  The guitar solo further pulls your heartstrings.

The best lyric section?
If you wanna know somebody, might take a quick look at their best friends.  Diamonds are hers, the dog is his. You can lie to yourself, but don't lie to me.  That's what they want.  Dominance and loyalty, romance and security stay behind.


the full list. :)Collapse )

“My dad family’s are from Spain and because of the civil war he had gone to this school in Switzerland, and he loved it, so I was sent there. I was probably the only kid without a trust fund. I was a little bit disgusted by the whole, go to the right school, get your foot in the door vibe — so I just kind of hit the eject button. I left early and studied music at super-cheap colleges.”

This quote just made me fall completely in love with Julian. FFS, where can I find someone like that?

And this quote:

“I always go nuts when people say that life started in Africa,” he tells me at one point. “That doesn’t make any logical sense to me. At all. I mean, sure, maybe some ... six million years ago an ape-type two-legged creature walked in Africa, sure, but ... you know how the East Coast of America was populated ... and then people just stay on coastlines . . .” There are huge pauses while he mentally travels the world. “You can just see how kind of India, China, all that just seemed to, like ... . just looking at people’s faces and populations and ... I’m totally derailing here.”

OMG THE CUTENESS. <3 I need to see him on tour RFN. There is no other way about this. I'm asking for a train ticket to NYC in January and a concert ticket. If he doesn't do a semi-widespread tour, I WILL resort to extreme measures.

I just needed to get that out. Ciaooooo.
