Cursed? Odd. I know this site plays up a bit, but I didnt know about curses, lol.
Perfect. You're a MU fan too. A real one, you got to enjoy the treble! I was actually 'brought into' the Man United fanclub.. you see half my family lives in England, and I have cousins in Manchester. So every Christmas and birthday of my childhood I was sent Man U merch, and thats what made me a fan.
Yeah loving the success at the moment, not too fussed with Ronaldo going, he had a massive ego which isnt really welcome at the club, (chelsea on the other hand...) and if Tevez goes for a nice sum then we should be able to make a few decent purchases for next season. I dont really follow the Italian games, we have foxtel so I make an effort to see the EPL games live and the EPL highlights show each week.
As for the cricket, I think it will be 2-2. I think England have anough talent this time, I dunno about the self belief. Australia will lose the ashes if Brett Lee plays. I think he's a liability at the moment. But it should be a good series.
Had my last exam on Thursday. Had some good celebrations last night, so I might be going to sleep a bit earlier tonight... Good too be free, I did not like that semester. The micro exam was hard but it wasnt as bad as I thought it would be.
Yeah, the whole itunes thing is interesting, I like building up a physical collection, I listen to CDs all the time at home, but I also like collecting B-Sides in my itunes library. And I know you have pretty broad musical horizons, so I guess you would be the same. Nowadays most new bands are discovered online, because its just so easy and convenient. Although, I am a purist.. would love bands to go back to their old ways and release physical singles with 3-4 tracks (that arent remixes)... I think itunes has destroyed the physical single. I still collect all the Oasis ones, I buy them from the UK because I am a dedicated fan, I guess.
Oh and another thing about the ashes.. I am disappointed, I will miss the first two tests because I go overseas to Malaysia and Vietnam in 2 days for all July. I highly doubt that Asian television covers the Ashes. May have to rely on internet cafe's.
hey. this is my third effort to reply to your message. it seems to be cursed haha
now i remember writing something about itunes. why the hate? personally i feel that if im going to spend my money on something i would like to be able to hold it in my hands. but i do like using it to download podcasts especially EPL football ones.
we'll have to talk football some other time. who do you follow? i've been a pretty hardcore man utd fan since 1998. and i follow juventus in italy.
are you looking forward to the ashes? im predicting a 2-0 win to the aussies at worst 2-1. im sure the english weather will play a big part.
about modest mouse. i have heard great things about them and heard a couple of tracks i like. one of my mates are checking them out these holidays and he will tell me what they're like. he has similar taste in music to me.
Oh, a sanity voucher would Not last that long in my wallet. Yeah 22 is expensive, but it is sanity. I get everything from JB, I am in love with that store. I finally bought the CD of Vampire Weekend cos it was on special at 12.99 this week. I had the itunes version previously, but I am completely anti-itunes music store now. I buy my albums, and get singles and EPs online. I think its fair, right?
Anyway, the new metric was 22 in JB, thought that was a bit steep. But after listening to it, I it was worth the money.
Temper trap: over hyped. Not brilliant as it could have been, I agree with you, sweet disposition is the strongest track. And the subtle change in Science of Fear is noticeable. Id prob give it a 7 or 7.5/10 too.
Havent got into Bon Iver, I must admit. You listen to modest mouse? I hear them mentioned by ppl who have similar taste in music, wondered if they had any decent material?
Love my sport. Cricket, Premier League Football mostly.
i thought instead of flooding the boards we would chat here instead. i finally got around to picking up the Bon Iver album. i had a Sanity voucher in my wallet for ages so i thought i would put it to use. 22 buccks!! what a complete rip. but a beautiful album nonetheless, have you heard it?
i listened to Pink Floyd's epic album Wish You Were Here twice a day for a week while i was studying. simply cos its mainly instrumental and amazing. Led Zeppelin's live shows were also quite good as they're instrumentally driven also. radiohead are horrible for studying. i cant concentrate on my work cos their music really makes me think.
Sorry for the late reply. Swamped with study at the moment, got two in three days this week, including finishing with micro on thursday. And its going to be bloody hard. Have shelved the radiohead for a while - my study music consists of the calming tunes of travis and also jack johnson. Hope you're enjoying your break already.
hey mate. just taking alittle break from revising. just one more night of studying then im free for 6 weeks
i agree with you in that that second Big Pink song i showed you wasnt as good but i still love it. and thanks for the heads up on the album release. last year in my opinion was very much dominated by american acts, i think this year is UK's turn to come back.
