    Sometimes I forget that you've your deleted Facebook, so it makes me think you're being unusually quiet, then I remember that you're on here, and that you're NOT dead. So, good ain Levis.

    thanks for accepting! Glad to see some more Julianna Barwick love out there. Yeah a friend recently introduced me to them- I'm a bit of an Icelandophile so I thoroughly enjoyed. Think I should check out Neko Case now ;r)

    I know The New Pornographers but I'm not as familiar with Neko Case's solo stuff. Will have to investigate. Still not completely convinced by the Savages album - all the influences are there and there's a couple of outstanding tracks, but it comes across as a bit... "thin".

    Had the dispatch email today, should be here tomorrow. Gig was great - I've decided I need a Tenori-on, although she only used it on a couple of songs. Support went by the name of MDNGHT.

    Only heard it a couple of times (still waiting for it to be delivered ffs) but based on that and seeing her live tonight, yes it is very good. Better than the first one.

    HA! The 'advert' before Ashanti's Shine on YouTube was AlunaGeorge's new video. They know all my secrets, those YouTube ones. So far, this is a bad song. Right, I lasted 30 seconds or so and had to change it to 'Always on Time' feat. Midget. A lot of her songs (two I can think of anyways) are with people with extraordinary physical attributes. Ja Rule is tiny and Fat Joe... well, it's all there in the name. As for fucking it up, don't worry: I have charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent. Or so I like to think.

    Juni 2012
  • rabbitvsdove

    I'm only up to page 70. I want to take everything in and read it really laboriously slowly. It's rare that a book makes me want to do that so I'm reveling in it for the time being. I only know of AlunaGeorge because it came up on my ticker thing on FB that you'd commented Aaliyah isn't dead on something and that whet my interest. But I really liked it so went and downloaded some stuff. Her voice really reminds me of Ashanti, though, for whatever reason. Is she Glaswegian or are the Weegies just getting communally excited? Two things: what's a VM friend (I know for economy you have to abbreviate on these things but I'm easily lost)? And it's next weekend I'm over. Well, next Thursday. Hopefully for good, depending on so much.

    My Internet at home isn't working all of a sudden so I'm having to use 3G like a savage. This application is horrible. Some of it is in tick boxes, some of it in images and some of it in text that if you try to add stuff to, it moves everything. I'm just going to get back to Cat's Eye because it's needlessly stressing me. By needless I mean I have no need or valid reason to get so stressed by it. Is work today everything you expected and more? I danced for a bit to AlunaGeorge in lieu of doing anything. Feel guilty but good.

    Juni 2012
  • rabbitvsdove

    THANKS! I'm going to print it now and contemplate my answers semi-seriously before sending it off tomorrow. It asks how I found out about the post and I'm just going to write 'Levis'.

    Juni 2012
  • rabbitvsdove

    No drama yet. She's been artfully dodging me (re-re-wind) which is a nuisance in itself: my table is filthy. The name I used in Starbucks the one time I went was 'Lorcan' which is my middle name. I used it just to be contentious because it's such an instagatory name here. Well, I imagine it would be if I ever used it. It's not the name I was born with but more on that later. Why the sudden change to crappier climes? Books > Starbucks.

    Juni 2012
  • rabbitvsdove

    It's such a bore to type on an iPhone, just to say I got out Cat's Eye and it's amazing so far. Sitting in a coffee shop and my first year Glasgow flatmate just came in. Works here. Hell.

    Oh and I remember reading a page (article seemed too scientific) about all the evil things children do. I'll find it and link it. The wee bastards. I for one can say I was vaguely aware of my own nihilism but more than that I was conscious of my desire to die. There's something about childhood that makes you want to experiment with everything, especially if you're brought up in a vaguely religious way and you want to test the whole heaven theory.

    I really hope sending that internet ethos message in two different ways was on purpose. I get email notifications, you see. That's why I always fucking know when anything happens anywhere. I know it's Leh-vis, I was being facetious (as per usual). I'm such a hybrid mix of Irish and Scottish (or my accents is, sometimes at least) that my name is more like 'Coral' than anything else when I say it. People always tell me "oh that's a lovely name" then I realise they've misheard me because there's very little joy to be taken from Carl. As for a tan, first I freckle, then I burn, then I stay inside for weeks feeling sorry for myself and promising that next time I'll put the factor 50 (I have to buy the stuff for children) all over and not just on my face.

    Juni 2012
  • rabbitvsdove

    And my grammar is terrible every morning/afternoon/evening/night. I can just revise things when typing online. In real life I'm an absolute mess, barely able to string a cogent sentence together without the obligatory splattering of 'like' and 'yahhh'.

    Juni 2012

    I don't know the names of anyone/anything, so I had to look up Kim Deal. I come from a family where I'm often referred to as Geordie (my brother's name) and know they're talking to me. People seem to take offence to my constant name confusion but it's not my fault. IT'S NOT MY FAULT, LEVEES. I often pretend to be a twee vegan but then I am indeed a twee-enough vegan. Glasgow brings out the gimpy side to everyone eventually. I'm in the middle of reading Bagombo Snuff Box by Vonnegut. I'm having a total wankfest over him at the moment even though I almost slit my throat with disappointment after reading Breakfast of Champions. Still, I dutifully passed it onto my mother to see if she could make head of tails of it but apparently it's just an over-rated dud.

    You should know what a bacchanalia is just because how many other words start with 'bacch'? Think about it. Don't Google it.

    Juni 2012
  • rabbitvsdove

    I'm good. Trying to find the energy to pick a good, solid outfit and go into town. I'm having coffee with some designer I once met in the smoking area of a hipster dive. Apparently I told him I worked for Vogue but I think and hope he fabricated that. I'm going to make my last days here interesting. Then to the library to take out several books on SEO. It's going to be a wild one, clearly. What exactly is the activity you're so engaged with, sloths aside? And more importantly, how the fuck are tricks? And don't say 'for kids' because that's such a saccharine, American reference and I don't even understand what it's from.

    Juni 2012

    And don't judge me too harshly for my morning Britney listening.

    Juni 2012

    Turns out next Friday I will definitely be going to Sub as a dear friend of mine (who I've only ever met two or three times but he feels like a real sister to me) is coming back from Australia for a wee while with his boyfriend and we're going to go on a bacchanalia. I was particularly proud for having remembered that word just now so placate me.

    Juni 2012
  • rabbitvsdove

    You probably have been on a date with him if, as I assume, he went on the whole dating/shagging everything with a penis spree after I moved away. It would have been uncouth to have not done so. It might be bland to have ties to people in only one place but it'd be a lot cheaper. All this gallivanting takes its toll on our collective wallet. As for your cold, December number, ugh. I can pretend to be bashful here too. Oh and this job, absolutely, yes. Tell me EVERYTHING. I'd be a binman if needs be so office-y goodness would be even better, especially since it seems you just sit on last.fm all day. Rich, I know, but I'm actually sewing a fake fur collar onto a cloak I made. FAKE FUR COLLARS ON EVERYTHING seems to be my mantra as of late.

    Juni 2012
  • rabbitvsdove

    And it'll be just as difficult to make new friends in Glasgow, I know (especially since my ex is very much in the 'in crowd' and I therefore can't have any of his friends), but I'm willing to make a go of it again. I have a few amazing people over there and they're more than enough for me for the moment. Plus you and I can start a new clique of people who are temporarily fated (or have fated themselves) to live in Glasgow but who are above it all.

    Juni 2012

    How on Earth did I afford all what? I worked in Paris so that covered most of everything. If you're talking about Normandy, flights and all were a birthday gift so only have to cover food and drink when there (staying in a friend's chateau). Yeah I got that you were only going to Barcelona for a wee bit but if you wanted to meet up for a drink with her, she's great fun and would show you around. But you would have to speak one of those languages. Plus Spanish, obviously. She's not such a nationalist she only speaks Catalan. I know exactly what you mean about the whole friends thing. Since coming back to Belfast, I realised it's actually really difficult to make friends without uni. My best friends here are ones I've had since I was a child or from school. There's one who I hated in school but I'm now best friends with since we met in a pub in January when drunk and decided we were now compatible. He just played in Barcelona, actually, at that Primavera. He's wonderful.

    Juni 2012
  • rabbitvsdove

    (*but I've NO proof of it). Oh and some context to the Paris friends thing. I took a year out of uni and moved there. My French was pretty crap at the time so most of the friends I made were English/American. They all crawled back to London except one Brooklynite who'll hopefully be making the journey for Normandy, too. There's less of an impetus, though, because the rest of them just went and visited her in NY. The bastards. With their jobs. And their money.

    Juni 2012

    There are a few people I can stay with temporarily but I want to be somewhere for a few months at least so I can put stuff on the wall and feel comfortable. By stuff I mean my holographic print of the Virgin Mary and a picture of the 'Birds of Britain'. Stuff you can't live without, yanno? Barcelona's class. When I was moving back to Belfast to Montpellier, I travelled down with my flatmate (she's Catalan) and we stayed for a while. Could hook you up with her if you know no one. She's awesome. But she only speaks Catalan and French and (apparently, but I've proof of it) five words of English. RE: cities, I just like Glasgow for its simplicity and unashamed dirt. I was supposed to be in London with the rest of my Paris friends by now but that never materialised. But I get to visit them in August: they bought me flights to London, then we're road-tripping to Normandy for a wee holiday. The only warmth I'm looking forward to this summer, I assume.

    Juni 2012

    I don't have the remnants of any wages is the problem. I'm going to be so absolutely skint. And as for rent, I have no idea how to first get a flat and then convince a landlord to wait for ages until everything's sorted. Trying and failing to convince a friend to let me stay at hers. I have a few flats I can stay at temporarily but feck it's hard to find somewhere 1) when you're not there 2) when you've no money. Sensibility to stay here doesn't enter my head. As for graduation, yeah. I graduated last year from Glasgow. Did an English language degree. Moved to Montpellier afterwards and worked at a wine magazine then moved back to Belfast because I foolishly missed it. What's your story apart from Dundee was boring? And how, praytell, does one pronounce 'Levis'? I imagine it's not just like the jeans but wouldn't that be convenient?
