What a hectic day. The boss is heading off to Multiplay, down in Newbury, so the whole shop has been gutted with all the stock removed so he can sell it down there.
That meant, packing endless boxes and stuffing them into a van, trying to ensure all the delicates don’t get smushed under the weight of the heavy cases.
PLUS he thought it would be a good idea to have all the stock boxed up upstairs, so, I’ve been up and down the stairs a million times.
I normally finish at 5.15, but today, I didn’t get out till near half 6…and there was still a metric fuckton of stock to be packed…But I’ll let the boss do that.
The good news is, tomorrow, I get to be Mr Manager, and am in the shop myself. Also, since most of the stock is gone, the shop wont be busy. And the couriers aren’t working on Friday or Monday, so, I don’t even need to pack internet orders.
If it wasn’t for the fact that it means I’m working on the Saturday, this would be the start of a gloriously relaxful weekend.
But they just sounded like the cd, with the exception of one song, where they put a bit of edge into it.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing…means they are awesome musicians, that, basically, they could cut a new album in the time it takes to listen to it, with no need to tweak or remaster it.
But, I like gigs to be raw, and different from the albums. Take Eels for instance.
I’ve seen Eels live, like what, 4 times? Maybe 5. And every time, something different. There was that one time, they did all their songs with a string orchestra…that other time, they used a dustbin as a drum, and Flyswatter lasted nearly 15 minutes……
Fundamentally recognisable songs ( if you know the band ) but with a little twist, to give you something you can’t get by listening at home. Maybe thats just me, thou.
Also, Motion City Soundtrack didn’t play the one song that I wanted them to ( Skin and Bones ) :sad face:
day sixteen / a song that makes you cry (or nearly)
If you’d asked me this ten years ago, I’d have said, hands down Unbreak My Heart - Toni Braxton.
Like most of my stories, it starts with the line “There was this girl…” but really, it’s not a story worth hearing. So long ago, I pretty much don’t even remember her. I remember her shoes, if that counts?
But, that was a lifetime ago. These days, a song that chokes me up? Never Saw Blue Like That - Shawn Colvin.
I don’t read fanfic. I don’t write fanfic. So, I took the safe route, and found a fanfic about some of my favourite things, i.e. computer games and giant fuckoff mecha, stomping about, shooting shit up.
I’ve not actually read this, but I bet it’s great.
Another reason for the staff at Tesco to give me wierd looks.
What’s the article like? She did one for Bizarre UK, talking about abortions and manic depression.
I am not sure as i have only just looked at the website (i will buy it this weekend!) but i do not think it will be as dramatic as the Bizarre interview because of the type of magazine. I think it is just a musical view for this one, but when i get it i will let you know! :)
I got my Google-fu on, and I *think* it’s just this one pic:
Like, at the back of the mag in a collage of other celebs. I could be wrong…
You’re positively beautiful. I love the freckles on your nose, they bring out the colors in your eyes. Your hair frames your face perfectly. Your laugh is contagious and you will always make me smile. Those scars on your knees? They show me that you’ve fallen. That sparkle in your eyes when you…
