Guess who was at the railing of the Bloc Party gig? ♥

Hint: Yep, still me :D

Fantastic gig. You know it's going to be great when the second song they play is your absolute favourite BP song and that third song is that other one you really really liked. I had a perfect spot, right between Kele (= leadsinger) and Gordon (=bassist) and it was just awesome.

Because every self-respecting music geek does it.

I always find it a bit silly to name one album 'the best album of [insert year]', cause really? Who has heard ALL the albums that were released? Either way, these are my favourite albums of this year. The order can change, but this is how it is today.

The reasons why they are in the list can be different. It can be because the music made me so damn happy, or because it's so beautiful, or I love the style or it gives me such happy memories or whatever.

♫ This is not the sound of a new man or crispy realization / It's the sound of the unlocking and the lift away ♫
Bon Iver completely stole my heart with his voice and his lyrics. For Emma, Forever Ago is an utterly gorgeous album with just a guy and his guitar, singing with a ridiculous pretty voice. I saw him live twice this year, with a band and the songs are great that way as well. Bon Iver never fails to make me ache with it's beauty.
Highlights: Flume, Skinny Love & Re:Stacks

♫ And it's the fame that put words in her mouth / She couldn't help, but spit them out ♫
I LOVE The Last Shadow Puppets. I like them way better than the Arctic Monkeys and The Rascals and seeing The Rascals live made me realize what a big influence Miles Kane has on this album. Either way, they sound like the love child of Scott Walker.
Highlights: Standing Next To Me, My Mistakes Were Made For You & Black Plant

♫ Spineless dreamers hide in churches ♫
Keane-boys always make me happy. This album is completely different from the others, but it makes me dance and jump and be silly so that's good. I like how it's influenced by Bowie and the Talking Heads, cause you can't really go wrong with that, can you? Tom's voice is as ridiculously pretty as usual, plus they added Jesse Quin as bassist!
Highlights: Better Than This, You Haven't Told Me Anything, Perfect Symmetry & You Don't See Me

I know the 'what made you happy' meme has ended, but this seriously made me full of glee today.

Oh, Adam! ♥

First row at Travis gig, right in between Dougie and Fran. Best spot EVER. Dougie beamed his gorgeous smile at me at some point and I just beamed right back. What a guy. Also, I HAVE HIS GUITAR PICK!

More tomorrow when I have a brain again.

I'm so darn proud of myself today. For people on Twitter (that is SPAM-heaven, really!) old news, but I went from 1,280 of ~5,000 words in the morning to 2,666 words midday, to 3,983 words in an hour to 5,455 as an end result. I'm made of win today

Once I will make a long, detailed and illustrated post on why bassists are my favourite people in any band and the coolest people on Earth. My obsession/love goes FAR. Until then, I will leave you with this pic (which proofs my point all on it's own!)

(I'm getting really excited about the new U2 and I'm not sure if that's a good thing. When I became a bit fan "Automic Bomb" was just out and I loved it, but after I went through their entire back catalogue and discovered my big love for their nineties period it was very disappointing. What if it is disappointing again?)
