This was meant to be a post about how much I love The Avett Brothers 2009 release I And Love And You but hours are slipping through my fingers like seconds today and I’m afraid the careful analysis just won’t be happening. Just know that it’s gorgeous and wistful and charming. If you don’t own it, buy it. If you do own it, give it another spin. ‘January Wedding’ is my current favourite. Love.
Just a quick post to let you know that I’ll be taking a bit of a break from It All Started for a while. It won’t be forever, it may only be a week or two, but I’m both busy and tired at the moment and I need a bit of a rest. Every now and then I get all weird and find myself putting all this pressure on myself to post, and I’m feeling it right now. This pressure usually leads to me just not wanting to write anything at all, but lately it seems to also be affecting my ability to listen to music – I find myself constantly analysing everything I listen to, and I just want to HEAR IT dammit, without immediately creating sentences about it in my head. It’s why I haven’t written anything about Meursault’s All Creatures Will Make Merry (which is a wonderful record by the way) or High Violet (which is taking some time to digest), and why I haven’t even listened to the new Band Of Horses yet.
I’ve also realised that I need to take a big break from all things computer related too – I spend way too much time on the internet, listening to music and reading blogs and let’s face it, just wasting bloody time, and so I think it’s time to turn this thing off for a while and just be.
I will be back – I love this blog too much to ditch it permanently – but it won’t be for a little while. I look forward to catching up with you all on my return.
I’ll leave you with a few tracks that I’ve uploaded, but haven’t found the energy to write about. Enjoy!
Between a bad cold, the last few days of school and my lame attempts to pack boxes in preparation for moving house this week, I’ve just not been up to posting. And it’s not like I haven’t had the opportunity. You would think that spending my two days off this week lying on my bed in a germ-ridden stupor would be the perfect opportunity to get some blog action happening, but instead I watched The Office (US version) and read Dan Brown’s latest (more on that later – let’s just say I was less than impressed) and downed Aspro and cough medicine like nobody’s business. And now it seems that my cold has now developed into a nice healthy chest infection. Oh joy.
The upshot of all this sickness is that I’ve not been able to compete in the run I told you about a little while ago. A friend and I were all geared up for it but she’s had to go ahead without me which has been pretty disappointing. Still, we’re booked in for another one in November and there are two more in December that look pretty promising. I will triumph yet.
I’ve also put the box packing on hold these last couple of days, but I’m hoping that the removal fairies will show up while I’m sleeping tonight and have it all done by Thursday. I’m moving into a unit in town which will be great but it’ll take me a little while to get the internet organised, so I’m going to endeavour today to get a few posts scheduled to pop up in the next week or so while I’m busy trying to remember where I packed that toaster and wondering where I am when I wake in the night.
