  • 4 year anniversary

    16 fév. 2009, 20h16m

    i just randomly noticed it's been four years since i started this thing.

    i've missed about two years worth of scrobbling plus everything i listen to outside my laptop since i either didn't have the net or couldn't be arsed to scrobble my ipod. and now it's broken and i'm too scared to take it to the apple shop lest they say it's dead. it has an elliott quote inscribed on it, damnit, it can't die.

    anyway. i will endeavour to listen to more stuff here. this thing is so skewed. i don't even like john frusciante that much, i just got into him in 2006 and scrobbled a mighty amount of tracks. i do like elliott smith that much though. and then some.
  • i freaking met brand new...

    i met Brand New in cardiff on monday night after the show. they were all lovely guys.

    i spoke to jesse for a good 20 minutes and i nearly died.

    saw them again in london tonight. amazing performances.

    wow.

    i love this band.
  • i died for you one time, but never again...

    my copy of Brand New's The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me arrived today and i'm on my second listen already. love the artwork.

    it's strange to see a snapshot into (predominantly) jesse's mind from the last three years.

    Jesus Christ is my favourite at the moment. plus, perennially, Degausser and the build up in Limousine is killing me.

    Millstone and You Won't Know are extremely catchy.

    i'm not going to try and compare this to Deja Entendu as the themes are just so starkly different and it's clear that three years of heavy emotional turmoil have taken their effect out on jesse's songwriting.

    haven't figured out where i'm going to get the Sowing Season cds yet, not sure where in the uk is going to have it, if anywhere. Untitled 07 is one of my favourites so i would love to hear aloC-acoC.

    that tune and the reprise let me live in hope that somewhere out there they have remastered all the fight off your demons demos and that these will either be b-sides or leaked sometime in the future.

    i'm curious as to what the video for the single will be.

    still head over heels for this band <3
  • or maybe we willl tear you up, take what you love and burn it down... burn it down

    Brand New have overtaken Jimmy Eat World in my overall artists. :o

    I'm worried about how re-obsessed I've become with them.

    i made it through most of the studio albums thinking about you today.

    i had your name written on my left wrist.

    i will miss you forever.

    Elliott Smith <3
  • please ignore the lisp, i never meant to sound like this...

    2 oct. 2006, 20h08m

    damnit jesse, you're killing me.



    i was at this Brand New show. so good.

    i want sept 9th again.
  • i can't stop...

    4 sept. 2006, 19h59m

    listening to John Frusciante.

    this guy is so so so so sooooo awesome.

    i want every track that he has ever done like the tired played out cliche of a fat kid wanting cake.

    *swoons*

    now the scrobbling tactics have changed i can't upload my tracks played from my ipod.

    apparently it's being worked on (yay) but until then i will have hardly any plays because i don't really play stuff on my laptop anymore seeing as it's distorting everything. gay.
  • here if you want me

    19 juin 2006, 18h11m

    a 'new' elliott smith track leaked today, a studio demo of 'still here (if you want me)'/'dancing on the highway' (depending on which version you're talking about) titled 'here if you want me'

    it's beautiful

    i love that this stuff keeps getting leaked but goddamn do i get a lump in my throst every time i hear something 'new'

    i don't think i'll ever get over it
