… Or that I won’t use my favourite band to write a cheap blog. My Chem won two NME awards last night, best international band and best video for Na Na Na. It is nice to prove to the Kerrang! people that people in the UK do actually appreciate good music. The ceremony is being aired sometime Saturday on Channel 4/T4, I think. In the meantime, play spot the bandmate in the background!
In celebration, here is a little something Isobel wrote on her way to Italy last Friday. She has gone skiing. So has my brother, but thankfully in Austria. There would be war on the slopes if they were in the same country. “Wait til I tell your sister about what you said about short people.” “Wait til I tell your sister you stole her eyeshadow palette.”
“How’s life up there? Down the end, us teenagers are partying with poison and singing about Helena and her drowning lessons. But, hey, you know what they do to guys like us in prison, but what do they do to you guys? I was almost falling to sleep, when I realised, I never told you what I do for a living! I think there’s a bit of romance down there. It will die down when we go for a cemetery drive though. But when on a ski trip always remember, it’s not a fashion statement, it’s a deathwish, the jet set life is gonna kill you, and this time, our lady of sorrows won’t be there, so save yourself, I’ll hold them back and finally, in the summertime interlude, avoid the destroya. That’s it for now. Remember, as these could be my famous last words, that even if the only hope for me is you, I don’t love you. For all the demolition lovers that think vampires can never hurt you, this is a goodnite from Dr. Death Defying, PhD, OBE, MCR, inventor of the Bulletproof Heart.”
