I discovered from [livejournal.com profile] kdelioncourt that MUCC are playing a gig in London. I don't know if I'll go, I quite like MUCC but it depends whether I can be bothered to go to London. Anyway, amusingly enough I found the gig details on http://www.theunderworldcamden.co.uk/ and they've listed them as "Visual Kai"

Exams are over! And UCAS form is submitted!

I did some painting the other day and I got blue gouache on my forehead. Guregu said I was very cute. It makes me feel good when I have inkstains and paint on my skin!

The Harmonizer version of "Suffer in Silence" by Apoptygma Berzerk is one of the most sublimely perfect synthpop songs in existence.

Why then, oh why, do people who remix it always cack it up so completely?

(Ladytron, I'm looking at you... And don't think you've got off, Groth - who the fuck was responsible for the "dying cow" overdub on the single version?!)

After an 8 and a half hour train ride, I made it back to Newcastle last night.
I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to [livejournal.com profile] scaryshari, [livejournal.com profile] lapie and [livejournal.com profile] jadedhazeleyes for the christmas cards I had to stomp on to get through my front door, and also special love goes out to [livejournal.com profile] letze_ausfahrt and [livejournal.com profile] flying_for_him for the electronically delivered messages XD

I'm priveliged to know you beautiful people and honoured by your friendship. The tiniest things can make the biggest difference, and your words touched my heart and made me happy.

To all of you reading this who have given me support, or help, or smiles, no matter how long I have known you and no matter how many miles away you are... I thank you too

Happy 2007 to all of you.
I wish you health and wealth and above all... peace.

I got upset the other day reading the Metro. They published the results of a poll to decide "hero of the year" and the readers voted in Richard Hammond. (http://www.metro.co.uk/news/article.html?in_article_id=28695&in_page_id=34)
It really, really pissed me off. This guy is a "hero" because he survived a high speed car crash? A crash that was his own bloody fault, mind you, a crash he caused by driving 300mph while filming a piece for Top Gear about how much fun driving at 300mph is. And this guy's a hero? What about the medical staff who pulled him back from the brink of death? What about the people whose organ transplant operations were put back to make space in the operating theatre for this selfish prick, who could have caused the deaths of many people by his irresponsible showing off? And, indeed, caused the death of countless others by influencing them to push their cars to higher and higher speeds, because it'll make them "real men."
What about the unknown, uncared for people who work day and night trying to help others and improve their lives? The teachers who refuse to give up on problem children, the single parents who struggle against the odds to support their family, the people who give up time and energy to help the elderly or the disabled, the doctors who work for free in poverty stricken areas, the scientists who strive to improve medicine, the campaigners who allow us to get this medecine, to get a bit more respect and dignity in our lives, the people with strongly held beliefs who play their part to make the world just that little bit more bearable.
They are heroes. Not Richard fucking Hammond.

And then a few pages later it mentioned that the two richest people in the world own 40% of the wealth, and I burst into tears.

A message from my tutor about our dissertations...

Could you all please attend class on Monday Nov 6. We need to discuss within your groups overarching themes that have been identified.
I would like you to bring your critical bibliography and outline of your research document. Your bibliography should include general reading as well as any primary material.

I don't know what the fuck I am doing and my tutor isn't answering my e-mails. This is supposed to be my dissertation project, this is a third of my whole mark, and I'm completely lost and dispirited. My friends on other courses had the summer to think about their dissertations. We didn't, because they were organising something "special" for us...

Which is that our "dissertation" has to take the form of a "virtual exhibition" relating to visual culture in post-war Newcastle.

I mean... WTF is the only appropriate comment. Not only are we restricted by medium we are horribly restricted by message. I wouldn't mind so much if it was "create a virtual exhibition about a topic relevant to (British) visual culture" or even "take post-war Newcastle as your starting point and present your findings as a documentary/website/written dissertation/ any other reasonable form" but we're so straight-jacketed by this... I've tried to look at it as a fun experience and try not to get upset about it... but it's so freakin hard to get enthusiastic about this...

I'm spending too much on eBay... Ok I will stop now, I swear. I have some bits and pieces I need to sell so I'll concentrate on that first...

Anyway, you know how I love to have woolly hair, but it's kind of incompatible with sensible jobs and I always get fed up with it sooner or later... So obviously getting some hair falls is the sensible solution. Then I can put them in, take them out and change colour as necessary/desired. And though I do feel proud of my hand-made braids and the hours of work I put into them, I'm a fundamentally scrappy and messy person. It maskes sense to buy something made by someone naturally neat.

I bought these ones here. Could this be the start of a new spending habit? I seem to go through compulsive phases... Like when I bought 3 umbrellas in a week... I should have these by the weekend so that gives me an excuse to take some photos. Hooray!

Everything is crazy right now. I have another exam in a bit. I'm so busy. So much work to do, so little motication. Argh! I'm making good labyrinthitis progress - I had a bit of a relapse this week but I'm still getting better.
♥ love to you all

Agh, I am in the process of putting my entire life up on eBay... I need to shift a load of stuff before I move, and my wardrobe is being purged. I buy a lot of stuff and then never wear it anyway O_o

Ok, here's the stuff I put up today... Some of it is on Buy it Now and rather cheap...

By the way, I will ship to the USA (And Europe, and Australia)
Read more... )
Please help me O_o So far eBay has just cost me money... (ie I've spent more on listings fees than I've recouped in sales. Far from making a profit, I can't even break even!)
Well, thanks for looking. Sorry for hogging your Friends Pages ♥

What could I write that would ever do it justice? The gig was amazing. The weekend was great. Everything worked out in the end. And Now I'm back home safely.

I will try and write up a mind-numbingly detailed gig report as soon as I get a chance.

But, oh man... MANA-SAMA

I've fallen in love all over again.

Ooh no wait, I do have some good news!

... I got 100% on my Japanese Reading Comprehension! It's the first proper assesment that counts towards my final mark (I've got 100% on all the kanji and hiragana tests we've had so far as well... but they don't count for anything. I just wanted to boast XD)

The thing is, I'm more into reading and writing Japanese than speaking and listening, so it's only downhill from here!

EDIT: (to avoid making a new post and being spammy)

[livejournal.com profile] xsquggyx: "peff can you PHONE ME to arrange important stuff rather than use the internet."

Hehe, sorry Chalkpot... ♥ yoooooou

My little sister is going to be 20 on Monday!

[livejournal.com profile] taylormercury tagged me...

A Song Meme: List ten songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your LJ along with your ten songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to. Tag yourselves if you will!

This is slightly amusing, as only yesterday I thought to myself: Recently I are bin mostly listening to Susumu Hirasawa, Közi and MALICE MIZER, and not much else... I am listening to other bands! But these are what's rocking my playlist at the mo...

Last chance to do the Guess the Band Meme, and then the answers are going up!
