you want to know what happened yesterday? I had two
midterm tests in one day. oh, the humanity!
the first test (the one that involved drawing with a computer software) wasn't very good. I know realize that I absolutely cannot draw something properly within a limited amount of time. the second one went pretty okay, considering I was slacking off on studying for it. and hey, my calculus and materials midterm marks cheered me up, so.
I have to trim down my music library again. iTunes says it's more than 18G now. *sigh* I should maybe delete those World Football Phone-In
downloads but I can't bring myself to hit 'Delete' for most of them. I can't help it, those guys are funny!
you know what's getting me excited, though? a new Oasis album. the new single's gonna be out soon
and I can't wait. *bounces* I am totally ready for Noel to be ridiculously funny during interviews and pretending to be a douchebag. (I'm pretty sure he's incredibly nice in real life because all the fan reports say he is and numerous former-baby bands follow him around like puppies. read:KASABIAN.) and Liam being a real
douchebag and/or wasted. and Gem doing damage control. and Andy just being awkward with interviews, probably because he's stoned. and Noel doing some more beautiful acoustic gigs
(Slide Away is one of my absolute favourites. but I have a lot of favourites).
I don't know, I don't follow them religiously or anything (probably because most of the stuff I find out about bands I like come from my flist, I'm lazy like that. and as far as I know, none of you are fans of Oasis.) but I still find myself enamoured with them. (although I'm alarmed at how skinny Liam is now. doesn't his wife feed him?)
oh, and wanna know which band's about to put out another album? The Sounds
. I may also be incredibly excited about this too because dude, The Sounds putting out new music? A++
lastly, I wanted to share music with you guys but my connection is too slow to upload anything. *pouts*
but here: Jake Troth
writes music purely because he enjoys it and wants to give it to you for free via I Am Fuel, You Are Friends
. You should check it out.
oh, nearly forgot the person I wanted to share with you the most. Laura Marling
. you should check her album out. it's Alas I Cannot Swim. I particularly like the slightly more uptempo songs right now, like Ghosts and Cross Your Fingers but I also like Failure because it was the first song of hers that I heard. and I really, really like her lyrics and sense of melody.
and I am also addicted to Negative Thinking
by The Death Set
(formerly known as The Motherfucking Death Set). I put the blame solely on provetheworst
's shoulders. you can get the song as a free download on their website
. no need to register or anything. the song is like this concoction of punk, rock, electronica and hyperness that resulted in an insanely catchy tune. I checked a few other songs on their myspace too and I really like Impossible and Around The World.
