Fred Perry

I have this odd obbsession with Fred Perry.
I bought this bag today. It was pretty expensive and now I'm broke but it was so worth it.
And the zips are little metal Fred Perry laurels. They are so so so cute.

I'm hitting the Fred Perry in Covent Garden when I'm back in England in December. The one here in Dubai is super small.

I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else but you

I watched Juno the other day, 3rd time or something.
Such a good film :)
And amazing soundtrack. I love the Moldy Peaches tons + Kimya Dawson.

I took the Polaroid down in my room
I'm pretty sure you have a new girlfriend
It's not as if I don't like you
It just makes me sad whenever I see it
Cuz I like to be gone most of the time
And you like to be home most of the time
If I stay in one place I lose my mind
I'm a pretty impossible lady to be with

Joey never met a bike that he didn't wanna ride
and I never met a Toby that I didn't like
Scotty liked all of the books that I recommended
Even if he didn't I wouldn't be offended

I had a dream that I had to drive to Madison
to deliver a painting for some silly reason
I took a wrong turn and ended up in Michigan
Paul Baribeau took me to the giant tire swing
gave me a push and he started singing
I sang along while I was swinging
the sound of our voices made us forget everything
that had ever hurt our feelings

Joey never met a bike that he didn't wanna ride
and I never met a Toby that I didn't like
Scotty liked all of the books that I recommended
even if he didn't I wouldn't be offended
wouldn't be offended

Now I'm home for less than twenty-four hours
That's hardly time to take a shower
Hug my family and take your picture off the wall
Check my email write a song and make a few phone calls
before it's time to leave again
I've got one hand on the steering wheel
one waving out the window
If I'm a spinster for the rest of my life
my yarns will keep me warm on cold and lonely nights

Joey never met a bike that he didn't wanna ride
and I never met a Tobey that I didn't like
Scotty liked all of the books that I recommended
even if he didn't I wouldn't be offended

The Libertines

I think pretty much everyone who knows me, knows that I do love The Libertines.
Not only do I adore The Libertines, I'm also a huge fan Babyshambles and Dirty Pretty things.
I've seen both bands live and went to Peter's solo gig at the Royal Albert Hall which was phenomenal and blew me away. Sadly, I never got to see The Libertines perform. :(
Anyway, back to the reason I decided to do this post, my friend sent me a little part of a review about The Libertines' second album, titled [imaginatively] 'The Libertines'. The particular part is describing the front cover of the album which I've forward-thinkingly put at the end of this post.

'Carl looks out with defiant and defeated eyes. It looks like he wants to protect Pete from outsiders, but mostly so that he can punch him in the face himself.'

I think the reason that that particular few sentences stood out, and created such an impact was because it - in a way - sums up The Libertines as a band. The love/hate relationship that Pete and Carl had, how The Libertines were about more than just the music, they were/are also about the concept of being a libertine and how, in the end, the band eventually split up.




(full review http://www.fazed.com/music/the_libertines.html )

There's only so much you can miss, before we both collide

I've pretty much reached the conclusion that Alison Mosshart is infact the coolest person in the world.
She's in a band called The Kills along with Jamie Hince. They're insanely good and they both wear the best clothes ever.


So cool. So very, very cool.
Go listen to Last Day of Magic.

Lovely, lovely music from Adam Ficek [outta Babyshambles]. You should all [virtually] run on over to http://www.roseskingscastles.com and http://www.myspace.com/roseskingscastles and go listen to it until your ears get a bit fuzzy.
You can get free CD's if you send a Stamped Addressed Envelope over.
Go look on the sites for details.
Honestly, what could be better than free cd's? Nothing. Thats what.
The single, 'Entroubled' comes out on September the 8th and the Album, 'Roses Kings Castles' comes out on the 22nd of September [4 days before my birthday kids.]
Go check it out!
