Fev 18 2011, 19h41I wish I wasn't poor, innit.
So on Wednesday I woke up late and ditched school to go into the city instead, and admittedly it so awesome that I learnt nothing about the negative consequences of bunking. Finding the Beatles Store was just... yes.
Jan 16 2011, 15h34Eugh God it's 2011, how did that happen?
(by which I meant to put forward that my sentiments were 'last year went very quickly didn't it')
Oh well, who cares? I already have more albums and a jacket.
(I had an epiphany before bed the other week that this would be a good choice.)
So it's become clear to me, after getting a Hard Day's Night, that I need to get all of the Beatles' albums in physical form or I will die or something. Also, a whole buttload of albums by other '60s bands, because I have none. The shame.
Dez 31 2010, 19h32So I waited until the last day of the year to actually buy some albums, because I thought it would be really sad for me to have not gotten any since early August. I didn't get any for Christmas (a bit of a le gasp but I DID get a motherfuckin synthesizer and a watch and some films and some badges and stuff), and before that most of my money has gone on silly things which I have forgotten, like pens and softcore drugs and hats. I mean, not my hat though, I love my hat.
A Hard Day's Night (God yessss I finally got my first physical Beatles album! I wanted Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band or Magical Mystery Tour but they didn't have any because I dunno [rage], so I got the best one they had.)
Highway 61 Revisited
(2 for £10, baby.)
Christmas money is cool... I spent £40 of it in HMV today (blehh), £25 on albums and then the rest on a Bowie mug, a Beatles poster and some other mug my brother wanted. Swingin innit.
Ago 2 2010, 12h46So I got none last month, despite catching sight of Roman Candle by Elliott Smith in HMV, but look! Here's some now!
Also, HMV replaced half an aisle of CDs with DVDs ages ago, but now they've changed it back, so we have A WHOLE AISLE OF CDS NOW! Which makes the tiny establishment 200x cooler!
Although having said that they still have a rubbish range of artists. No Sugarhill Gang in the hip-hop & rap section? EUGH.
Jun 20 2010, 23h21This month is so incredibly hot, but not sexy hot. Although it has had its moments in that regard.
This is the first MP3 album I've ever bought and I have to say, I never want to buy another again. Physical releases have so much more to them. Tangibility is so awesome.
But that's not to say the album isn't awesome. Video Kid is so incredibly amazing it makes me want to do a weird face of utter girly glee.
Gosh darn it Bret McKenzie is awesome.
Mai 4 2010, 22h24Aww yeah baby, it's birthday month!
(Actually it's birthday day today. So yum.)
Merriweather Post Pavilion
Never Let Me Down
One Hundred Things You Should Have Done in Bed
I think this year's was a pretty good haul. Also, wtf, another year older. It makes me feel funny every time.
From a Basement on the Hill
So, yeah, I just spent all my birthday money on Elliott Smith. I have one more coming I think, and I also got the Flight of the Conchords radio series today. Which is awesome, obviously.
Oh look, there it is.
Mar 9 2010, 19h51Uh-huh, mmm, spring is in the air, except in the U.K. where it's freezing. Come on, April, bring it.
None Shall Pass
Man, I love this guy. He looks awesome on my Art exam prep. brainstorm with some monkey.

Jan 29 2010, 21h59I'm still slightly excited about it being 2010, if you ever needed any evidence to support your initial impression of my lame ways. For that reason, and that it'll get confusing otherwise, the year is also noted this time around.
The Distant Future
We Have the Facts and We're Voting Yes
I doubt I'll get any more this month and I'm not sure it's so likely that I'll get any next month, either. I'm saving up for other things and am determined not to let my obsessive album/EP-collecting lead me astray. Also, next month, living in Norfolk for 3 days with my classmates as I study Geography! Awwwahhh.
(Norfolk must be awesome, it has the word 'folk' in it.)
