I woke up earlier today than I do on days when I set my alarm, and the general sense of accomplishment from an extra hour’s being awake is a bit amazing. I haven’t done much, unless you consider two cereal-based meals and several run throughs of a Lily Allen CD ‘productive’.
Speaking of CDs, has everyone ordered Chantal Claret’s new record?
See, you should. Go here ASAP. I’m jazzed to get it, partly because Chantal is my favourite musician to dance around my room to, and partly because I’m excited that a legit professional artist person decided last week to release a handmade CD instead of going through the rigmarole of a record label. It makes me want to hand-staple a novel, you know?
I’m going back to my very busy schedule of enjoying Sunday so I don’t burn out by Tuesday now… have a good one!
Last night’s MCR binge reminded me of how much I love love a) MCR and b) music videos. Let’s watch some together.
The Axis of Awesome The Holy Trinity
“What’s his job?”
This song discusses everything I ever wondered mid-RS lesson and wasn’t brave enough to ask. Kudos for the Converse-tapping.
Mindless Self Indulgence Fuck Machine AMV Cartoon
I was telling a friend about MSI yesterday and rediscovered this. I want to be a cartoon please.
The Axis of Awesome In the Club Tonight
I think we know whose CD I want for Christmas. (Also: Lorde, Lily Allen and Minchin if you’re making a list.)
If I ever have a lot of money to invest and I’ve already bought a house, remind me that I’d love to have a bar where you can dance and hang out and actually hear each other.
Join Tom Daley and Lance Black for a double date in London
I am aware this isn’t a music video, but I stumbled across it on my travels – aka saw it on Instagram – and it’s funny and for a great cause if it’s your gig but more importantly…
They were giving out trips to the Star Wars set. You could also hang with the Breaking Bad dudes. If I’d known about that, I’d have had my brother’s birthday present sorted just by entering.
Instead I think I bought him a book.
Omaze is my new career aspiration, ie if I’m ever a successful writer, I’ll put up a chance to have coffee and have an excuse to get a picture as good as this:
Ian Somerhalder Turns You into a Vampire (legit opportunity) from Omaze.com
There is really nothing to add. Except that I don’t know what show Ian Somerhalder is in. I think Vampire Diaries?
This has fallen apart somewhat. I’m going to do some paperwork now.
I also feel I should clarify that the twelve shots were individual, not all shoved in one pint glass. Happy IMCRD!
In case you were wondering what I want to be listening to on the beach, here are some videos that I can’t wait to get the CDs for!
frnkiero andthe cellabration weighted
I don’t care that it’s not got footage. Let’s flyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!
Lily Allen URL Badman
I don’t care that this very site to which I owe two thirds of my writing career (‘career’). Lily is brilliant!
NME interview: Gerard Way On Solo Life After My Chemical Romance
I don’t care that there’s not a tune in sight. (I do care that I can’t go to Reading or Leeds. Take pictures at Leeds Jacki! Please!)
Yes/No Show with those guys from X Men
I first saw a GIFset of one of the questions on Tumblr, then the video popped up on the YouTube suggestions and it’s funnier with the accent. This probably isn’t available on CD. Whatever.
