“I was so lucky to grow up in the ‘90s. It was the revolution, it really was. There’s such a fucking plethora of amazing music to pick from, from Hole to Bikini Kill to L7 to Babes in Toyland to Elastica. There was Kim Gordon. There were so many women. It was just such an awesome time. I really hope that happens again. I think it’s been a good twenty years, so, usually things go in cycles. I’m hoping that maybe in the mainstream, female-driven rock ‘n roll or just rock ‘n roll in general kind of gets its place again. You know? It’s been dominated by dance music and I agree with Shirley Manson actually, she says it’s because of 9/11. And that’s absolutely where things kind of changed. We all got very PC and didn’t want to rock the boat and just wanted to hear meaningless fluff, I guess.”—Brody Dalle (via queenbandbabyduck)
“See, when you meet someone
for the first time,
you don’t really imagine that they would
turn out to be someone important to you.
You don’t really assume that
when you first learn someone’s name
that after awhile you would begin to really
get to know them inside and out,
or how you begin to pick up their habits,
and start talking like them,
or finishing the food off their plates
you don’t really see these things
happening, when you first meet someone.
Without really expecting it, this someone
who was only just a stranger to you before,
can all of a sudden mean so much more,
can become someone so special,
and someone you can’t see yourself
living without.”—Keen Malasarte, "I never thought you would have such an effect" (via acupofkeen)
i am SOOOOOO avoiding watching this flick… and with lines like that, me thinks it’s defs the right thing… UNTIL she finds me. then bed, movie, red wine, dark choc, candlelight, head on heart cuddles and the smell of the gorgeous red roses i’ve bought that day beside us.
“He may still love you. He probably does. He probably doesn’t know what he wants. He probably still thinks about you all the time. But that isn’t what matters. What matters is what he’s doing about it, and what he’s doing about it is nothing. And if he’s doing nothing, you most certainly shouldn’t do anything. You need someone who goes out of their way to make it obvious that they want you in their life.”—(via offguard)
ugh.. one whole week and hard work killed by booze..
one full week off cigs „ then drink again and it’s on..
i only had a couple but fuck.
again, too hungover to do much of anything today.. time to finally move my butt, shower, go from a motorbike ride to buy some eggs for the nieces and nephews.. come home.. get stoned and play drums all night.
but really… i just want someone to hang in bed with, watch movies and talk shit..
first drag of a ciggie in a week, tonight at a friends with ciders, and that was pretty fucking bluergh. then home and first CONE in MONTHS, about to eat and play drums, and yeah„ that’s was pretty fuckin’ nice..
i was watching battles.. john stanier being one of my favourite drummers. which lead me to find a band called bearcubbin’! which i quite liked. then found the drummer of bearcubbin’! ended up joining the SPumpkins over the last few years and thought yeah sweet.. you’re a decent little drummer clearly. watched some stuff on him, his name is Mike Byrne. then i saw he is sponsored by Vater sticks. which got me getting out all my various sticks over the years and re trying them all on the electric kit. and i’ve come to a conclusion.. i don’t like Vic Firth as much as i always thought.. and Pro Mark aren’t really favs either. i have about three sets of pro mark.. about nine or more varied and varied “signature” Vic Firth sticks.. and i reckon the one pair of Vater’s i didn’t even realise i had, i think are the best feel. them and the lars ulrich metallica AHEAD sticks i have. so yeah. after all these years i feel i’ve been jibbed into thinking Vic Firth are the best!? and they’re the ones i drop all the fucking time. fuck that. no more.
oh yeah„ and not sexy… my bum’s wet.. sexy drummer bum sweat. mmmhhmmmmmmm..
