I just wanted to post the lyrics to "My Manic and I" By Laura Marling. One of the most beautiful songs written in a long time.
He wants to die in a lake in Geneva The mountains can cover the shape of his nose He wants to die where nobody can see him But the beauty of his death will carry on so I don’t believe him
He greets me with kisses when good days deceive him And sometimes we're scorned and sometimes I believe him And sometimes I’m convinced that my friends think I’m crazy Get scared and call him, but he’s usually hazy At 1 in the morning, the day is not ended By 2 he is scared that sleep is no friend By 4 he will drink but he cannot feel it Sleep will not come because sleep does not will it And I don’t believe him Morning is mocking me
I wander the streets, avoiding them eats Till ring on my finger slips to the ground A gift to the gutter, a gift to the city The veins of which have broken me down And I don’t believe him Morning is mocking me The gods that he believes never fail to amaze me He believes in the love in his god of all things But I find him wrapped up in all manner of sins The drugs that deceive him and the girls that believe himI can’t control you, I don’t know you well These are the reasons I think that you’re ill I can’t control you, I don’t know you well These are the reasons I think that you’re ill
And since last that we parted Since last that i saw him down by a river Silent and hardened Morning was mocking us, blood hit the sky I was just happy, my manic and I He couldn’t see me; the sun was in his eyes And birds were singing to calm us down And birds were singing to calm us down
And I’m sorry young man, I cannot be your friend.I don’t believe in a fairytale end I don’t keep my head up all of the time I find it dull when my heart meets my mind And I hardly know you, I think I can tell These are the reasons I think that we're ill I hardly know you, I think I can tell These are the reasons I think that I'm ill And the gods that he believes never fail to disappoint me And the birds are singing to calm us down And the birds are singing to calm us down
So I arrived to the sale a little late, I didn't get off work until 4ish. The place was pretty picked over, still chaotic and full of people though. Picture me: very sweaty desperately scouring the aisles, both men and women. After a good hour of that I was off to spend 25 minutes give or take waiting in line to try on the clothes I had in my basket. I ended up purchasing 3 items: 2 jean shorts, straight up from the 80's, tight waist, flare at the thighs (thank god) and all. You really cant find those anywhere anymore. One of them was even Ck(for 3.50$?!!) And I also got a Che Guevara t-shirt for 4$. All and all I spent 11$, pretty happy..definitely wish I would've found more but what are you gonna do? On a side note I plan on ripping both shorts, I will post those pictures later but for now here are my vv finds.
Attention!! 50% off all used merchandise at our favourite local bargain shop, Value Village. This is only happening this monday, may 25th, 8am - 9pm. Don't want to miss it cause they been jacking their prices up and making me feel like i'm buying new clothes or something? I'm probably going to head to the location on victoria and 40something because it's close to my house and I can easily bike there plus last time I went to that specific location I scored big time!!
I've had trouble getting this started, mostly because I am an extremely indecisive person. I guess what stumped me the most was the actual title of the blog. Well i've slowly gotten over that, and have decided to just go with the flow. Anyways my first blog comes the day after my 22nd birthday. It's been a week long celebration really, beginning with "The Virgins" live at The Biltmore on friday. (great show!) Most of my footage is a little shaky from all the groovin' my roomie and I were doing. We only caught the last 10 minutes of Lissy Trullie cause we were pre-drinking but it sounded good from the washroom. Following that I also got to check out "The Kills" on saturday at the Commodore Ballroom. This time we were even later arriving completely missed "The Horrors". Sometimes I think we bring a new meaning to the term "fashionably late". By we I mean mostly my roomate and I or whoever else I'm with. The biggest highlight from The Kills was definetily when Allison Mosshart broke out into Patsy Cline's - Crazy. I will post what footage I think is worthy.
Unfortunely most of my actual birthday (yesterday) was spent in extreme hungover state, due to the 1.60$ beers I was consuming the night before at the legion on main for wensday kareoke!!! It was worth it got my fix of "walking after midnight" by patsy cline. I'm just glad my headache is finally gone.
