hunger. sleep. cold. but I'm defrosting.


hmm, let's start with the bad points.
still no Frank. no explanation, no 'Matt is playing for Frank today'. what did I expect though? insert huge ramble on communication between band and fans and respecting privacy. sometimes, it'd just be cool for you to say 'Frank can't play. here is Matt.' instead of just, well, not saying anything.
the crowd. gah. I know it's normal crowd behaviour, the whole pushing forward and surges from side to side, but it's so annoying. people don't want to let you get in front of them, deal with it. got knocked over once, and had trouble breathing at one point - I have never been so glad to hear 'I Don't Love You'. and my shoe lace came undone. fun for bouncing. the hilarious thing was for MSI and before mychem came on, I was slightly to the right of the right hand mic and about 4 rows back. by midway through mychem, I was more or less dead centre but quite a way back.
also, they ran out of my size in the shirt I wanted.
[livejournal.com profile] the_sell_out is stuck in Sheffield overnight! and is already sleep deprived enough as it is.

queueing, while cold, was hysterical. met up with [livejournal.com profile] the_sell_out [♥ thanks for being awesome!] and got to the arena around 1.30ish, I guess. ended up chatting to the girls next to us who were also awesome. much speaking in macros, fandom and 'hey Mikey you're so fine!'. fangirls.
MSI - amazing performers. hysterically funny. 'say 'I fucked your sister yesterday, douchebag'.' plus, since we ended up on Lyn-Z's side of the stage, when she jumped into the crowd, I ended up being one of the people holding her feet up before she actually jumped. so she was standing on us. Lyn-Z had a little crowd of fangirls, it was kind of funny.
despite all my bitching - My Chemical Romance were fantastic.
really nice people in the crowd! we were helping boost people forward to get out.
I have a tshirt, even if it's a small adult one as opposed to a large skinny.

I have less money than I thought and a lecture in less than 6 hours. awesome.

so um. it's early. and I've slept very little. and my train is in 3 hours and Frank's probably won't be playing and they've stopped playing Bullets and -

I saw Biffy Clyro last night, pretty awesome.

off to meet up with [livejournal.com profile] the_sell_out, have a good day! ♥♥

[oh god IT'S TODAY. WHAT.]

mm, passing out on other people's sofas! it's crazy how much time I spend there. but we're talking about plans for next year. I'm going to be living with people I know! more precisely, [livejournal.com profile] boonehwabbit, [livejournal.com profile] eleclya_m, [livejournal.com profile] individual_68 and [livejournal.com profile] mrs_jack_turner! ¦3
you have no idea how much I'm looking forward to this. although it makes people go 'hey, you have friends now'.

we watched the 3rd and 4th Harry Potter movies - in which I giggled, talked too much and made many comments about David Tennant's tongue. tried to watch Dogma after, but I feel asleep pretty soon into it. damn the whole needing sleep thing.


at 11.11, what do you wish for?
it's easier to wish for happiness than something specific, because happiness covers all the bases. it's more likely to come true.
I'd find a star for you if you asked. but the impossible is easier [to get] [to understand] than you.


amusing moments from my lecture.
there's a guy who keeps dying his hair pink and purple! it's just- pink and purple! *flail* unfortunately, he's a second year so I don't actually know him. [flailing is totally a coping method.]
the lecturer bitching about windows, and then saying 'I sound like a crazy Mac fan. ...uh, there aren't any of those here, right?'
talking about wireless security... in parts of cars. because how everything is getting all high tech and stuff - 'in your life time, there will probably be a murder inquiry where someone's anti-lock braking system has been hacked into.'


oh my god, fucking hilarity. Monday, I had to go to Waterstones to buy Katie a new copy of her book [exploding orange juice incidents] and was browsing around the fantasy section and thought 'hey, I wonder if the new Temeraire/His Majesty's Dragon book has been released', and there it was, in hardcover. I find it hard to resist shiny books.
turns out. it was released November 5th. the day I went in, by complete coincidence.

but yeah. dragons! alternate history! go read! it's one of the best books I've read.

Monday was also my day of retail therapy. I'm really awful with my money, so any Christmas presents will be in January. but I say this every year.


oh god, oh god, LESS THAN A WEEK. judging from two set lists so far, they might play Headfirst for Halos, which would be so awesome. I'm kind of spazzing out.
[livejournal.com profile] the_sell_out, did you get the message I sent you?

it's getting the point where I'm all 'hey guess what I'm doing next week? :D :D :D' and everyone is 'yeah, we know already.'


also, I got killed. *sad face*

[hello angel, tell me, where are you?]

things I believe in.
- friends.
- music.
- not making blanket statements or judgements based on things like music. like what you will. I don't mind if you like what I listen to, but- just stop it.
- the heart's capacity for love. I've been there, crying myself to sleep and feeling sick that someone doesn't love me anymore. but we all move on. we don't stay stuck forever.
- that even when you [i] hit the floor, someone will always be there.
- and that things get better.

[- that old school mychem will never not crack me the fuck up.]

[less than two weeks.]

this was going to be longer and emoer, more about lapsed religion and judgement, and then maybe some cryptic statements on the past, and how people see me, what they know about versus what I know.
but like I said, that would be emo.


I feel like I need to sleep for a week. but I only have the one lecture tomorrow, and then Halloween costume shopping.
...I know Halloween is today. but the party is Saturday.
I could pretty much pass as a zombie. I am pretty much that tired. no idea how I'm going to make it through the movie screenings tomorrow and the party Saturday.
also, I'm out of alcohol. to take chocolate milk and Baileys or coke and jd. questions questions.


awesome link of the day. The Machine is Us/ing Us. from a set of videos from an anthropology class about the effects of digital media. it's interesting, for sure.

[fall on your tongue like pixie dust, just think happy thoughts.]

so it turns out, I am being paid for ironing in mychem tickets.

so, really, this year or just-over-twelve months has turned out to be pretty fantastic for gigs. because I'm seeing every band that I have ever wanted to see. Muse and Snow Patrol last November, Fall out Boy, Panic et al at Reading, and if all goes well, My Chemical Romance in November with Lon.

...just watch them release a Manchester date now.

[I mean, like you guys actually care, haha.]

also toko in a day, how the fuck did that happen?
