If you like an amazing voice and equally excellent music you  should listen to Florence and the Machine :)


Opinions? :)

If You See One Film...

this year, then let it be Die Welle. I saw it in the IFI in November, it's nothing short of excellent. It's in German, but there's subtitles in English if you don't speak German. I've just ordered the DVD from play.com. Here's the trailer:

And if you hear one band, let it be White Lies. They're like a modern day Joy Division (though I do believe Joy Division's music is timeless) .

Andddd, I've finally finished my UK college app. I've applied for:
Buckinghamshire New University
Coventry University
De Montfort University
University of Glamorgan, Cardiff and Pontypridd
and York St John University
fingers crossed!

Hello Lovelys!

Share
Did some well deserved shopping yesterday! Although due to money shortages only got two things but they are BRILLIANT! (Kind of)

Like these, except much darker and the little strap is at the back and there's a metallic design at the toe.

I have wanted these for ages! They're not brand name, but the only difference is the name's not on the side and they're a fraction of the brand price.

Hello everyone :)
It appears that as of late a lot of musicians, some well known and some not so much, have been allowing people to download some of their music (legally) for free. I figured you guys would appreciate it. Here you go:


1) Coldplay - Violet Hill
Get the first single, 'Violet Hill', from their new album, 'Viva La Vida or Death And All His Friends', now. Remember to be quick, this download is limited to one week only, starting from 30 April 2008, for free download and after that you'll have to pay to download it.  To be honest, I think so far that this is my favourite Coldplay song. Go to http://www.coldplay.com/ and click 'Song'. Some e-mail servies have difficulty recieving it. All you have to do to be sure you get it is to save info@coldplay.com in your address. Enjoy, and happy listening!

2) The Charlatans - You Cross My Path
The Charlatans are allowing people to download their entire new album completely free. If you prefer, you can also download individual tracks from the album. I highly recommend 'Oh! Vanity', 'Bad Days' and 'This Is The End.' http://www.xfm.co.uk/news/2008/download-charlatans-new-album-for-free

3) Nine Inch Nails - The first 9 tracks from the Ghosts I-IV collection.
Simply go to the following page, http://ghosts.nin.com/main/order_options,  tick the 'Free Download' box, click 'continue', fill in your info and await the greatness that will arrive in your inbox.

4) CSS - Rat is Rage (Dead)
Get a taster of their much anticipated second album, 'Donkey'.  http://csshurts.com/.

5) Free Eircom Music Download, Courtesy of 'Sure Girl' Deodorant.
Go to http://redemption.dx3.net/surepromotion/voucher/giveaway to get your voucher code, you'll be asked your email address and your first and last name. You'll be given a choice of what song you want from a selection that's been picked by eircom specifically for this offer. Artists included are Paolo Nutini, Green Day, Goo Goo Dolls, Hard-Fi and more. When you recieve your voucher code check your bulk messages. Enjoy!

Hopefully this has been of some use to someone. Enjoy!

Help Meeeeee

Share
Decisions, descisions, decisions. I have to start making decisions for college courses. All I know for sure is I want to be involved in media, and now this is where your help comes in: No matter how little (or much) you know me PLEASE choose one of the following headings you think I'd be wise to choose for college, you may not know me that well but please give your input. And, if possible, a brief explaination as to why you think I'd be good in that field of media.

- Journalism
- Music Production and Management
- Radio Production
- Television Operations and Production

Your input, whoever you are, would be greatly appreciated.

Ecclesiastes

Share
God, you could grow to love, it, God-fearing, God-
chosen purist little puritan that,
for all your wiles and smiles, you are (the
dank churches, the empty streets, the shipyard silence, the tied-up swings) and
shelter your cold heart from the heat
of the world, from woman-inquisition, from the
bright eyes of children. Yes, you could
wear black, drink water, nourish a fierce zeal
with locusts and wild honey, and not
feel called upon to understand and forgive
but only to speak with a bleak
afflatus, and love the January rains when they
darken the dark doors and sink hard
into the Antrim hills, the bog meadows, the heaped
graves of your fathers. Bury that red
bandana and stick, that banjo; this is your
country, close one eye and be king.
Your people await you, their heavy washing
flaps for you in the housing estates -
a credulous people. God, you could do it, God
help you, stand on a corner stiff
with rhetoric, promising nothing under the sun.

It's by Derek Mahon, and is so blatantly addressed to Ian Paisley. I think I've found a favourite poet in Derek Mahon.

To be expected?

I was just looking through the Dolce & Gabbana fall/winter 2007 collection, inspired by my brother's girlfriend telling me that when I go back to Italy she can show me some of the designer shops I missed out on last time. And since she knows how lacking in money I am, she can show me some relatively cheap latest-season designer stuff when I return.

Most of their stuff looked quite classy, as expected. After consulting my fashion bible, which surprisingly enough isn't Vogue, while I was looking at the latest collections from multiple designers, and apparently greys are going to be in, time to go shopping! I've found my dislike towards luminous striped clothing has risen in the past week, due to just about every teenage girl in Dublin chosing it as their style. THEY'RE ALL WEARING THE SAME JUMPERS. With the exact same design, and the exact same brand from the exact same shop. WHY?!

So, after over two years of only going to one concert (AFI), and those two years being spent concertless in order to save to see AFI in concert I figure I should go to some sort of show, to 'brighten up' my returning to school. I can't decide between seeing 'The Panel', which is my favourite TV show (look it up on YouTube) live or Ardal O' Hanlon (of Father Ted fame) live. If I see Ardal O' Hanlon there'll be no support act (thank fuck) as he'll be recording his live DVD at the show I may or may not be going to, plus tickets are cheaper than going to see The Panel and I'm still saving to see Blaqk Audio. I'll have to find some way of convincing my sister to go with me, I turned down going to see Amy Winehouse with her a few weeks ago, due to the tickets being E50 and I'm still saving. I'll see what I can do. This post has probably been of no interest to you; kudos to you if you've actually read the whole thing!

I think I have just fallen in love. Anyone else know about Chanel's fashion show at Santa Monica airport? Seen the pictures? THEY ARE STUNNING. (Capitalized for extra dramatization.) They had a boeing 747 with a 'Chanel Airlines' logo on the side, and of course the models exited the plane straight onto the catwalk. Not surprisingly, the Lohan was there.

Is it wrong that I want to wear this outfit?

I fear I may end up being a bit of a Boy George look-a-like if I do.
I can't believe the Lynch sisters still sound good and have a musical career after B*Witched, not expected at all.
