No Fucking Raconteurs Album. I hate this town. It's all such a fuck-up. I KNEW Zavvi were useless, nobody ever believes me! They HAVE it. Some stores are selling it. Some aren't. Mine isn't. There wastes my day of listening. I have the Beatles on instead.
Well, at least the passion is back. ; D
So...I'm not the greatest fan of livejournal still, but I've officially swanked mine up a bit, a whole new scheme, new icons and stuff. I actually like looking at it now, which probably helps. So here I am, showing off me new lack of mediocre blueish journal thing. We've gone brown. All I need now is friends. Hmm, which I should really get round to.
Shopping yesterday I found myself in the possession of a very green, very fitted, amazing Ben Sherman shirt. Which I think I love, and at £13 down from £35, who can argue?! Well anyone could, but even if I don't wear it at the moment I will for interviews and such. Ohh and a rucksack.
And today has been quite productive, I went into a school to start spreading the word about D of E and such. And then there was the fencing. I'm officially useful when carrying large panels of wood across our muddy garden. And we no longer have huge gaps! hoorah.
I think I'm developping a liking for cat power, how strange.
I am going to see the White Stripes.
In June, Leeds Wireless festival.
Just 4 days after their album is released.
And I'm not paying for myself.
And hopefully meeting up with some awesome people.
OMFG! THE WHITE STRIPES! LIVE!
So, it's done. I've sent off my email asking for my application to Nottingham to be transferred to another course after being rejected. It looks good, interesting, challenging. My wounds are still a bit sore from the initial shock of it all, but it's time to move on. I do feel like a massive weight has been lifted, I'm doing something come September, and something great. If I wasn't so obsessed with becoming a vet this course would have been a top notch choice. So it'll be fine and dandy. And who knows where I'll be in three years time.
Now I have a lot of things to get done, and I actually feel able to do it, because I know that at least for a little while my future is secure. Now I can start getting excited about uni, like a normal student!
A NEW White Stripes Album has been announced! YAY I'm so ridiculously excited, and there's not even a release date yet. Just a name: Icky Thump. According to Mojo it comes from Ecky Thump, common turn of phrase of Lancashire folk, but Jack changed it to Icky as that's how it sounds when he says it. I love it, its quirky, and silly and childlike. Plus its British haha! And we rock your socks!
I did NOT think I'd be this happy about this news but I am, and its blissful.
What's more...in MOJO it says there will be bagpipes, and trumpet which sounds...fab! And he says the Racs are recording in March, which is fucking TODAY and there will be albums and tours and then a massive break, which this genius man truly will deserve. But but but for this year, we have him, and Meg and Brendan and Pat and LJ oh good grief I think I'm gonna pass out.
Oh and did I mention theres a video clip on whitestripes.com Which is stunning, and the bit of the song sounds fucking awesome. Its called "I'm slowly turning into you". What a name.
EEEEEE and he says its gonna be like as heavy as the first album, but will be more complicated, and theres a song from 1998 and they took longer than ever before to record it (a luxurious 3 weeks) and its soooo good to hear Meg back!
Excited? Me? Never.
I knew March would rock, and it already is...this is amazing news!
