Sunday Blues, Atmospheric Photos and Space-flight Inspiration

I usually hate Sundays.  They’re glum end stops that mark a potentially monotonous metre; the passing of weeks, made all the more blue if you’re not in love with your daily nine to five.

This Sunday has been a good one, though. I’ve been writing a lot lately, necessitated by the assignment deadline that’s bearing down on me. I hammered out 2,000 words on the first draft of a 17th century tragedy with some fantasy stuff thrown in, which will also be what I’m submitting for my assignment, or at least part of it, anyway.

Add Estrons to your music library


Estrons are a ‘heavy pop band‘ from South and West Wales, and they rock.

Check out the sinister base on ‘I’m Not Your Girl’. Almost all their songs have a nice, chunky, fuzzy riff and the direct language in their lyrics adds to the brash effect. Case in point ‘I’m out with my friends tonight, telling them you was so middle-class you couldn’t do me right’ in I’m Not Your Girl.

My top songs thus far; Make a Man, I’m Not Your Girl and Glasgow Kisses.

They get a thumbs up from me. Gigs sound a bit intense though.

Wednesday Morning Thriller 4EVR – Music Round-Up

I’m social media tee-total, but I still get the desire to share stuff that I like. Here’s the music I’ve been into this quarter.

It’s been eight weeks since I stopped using social media, except for two or three browsings of five minutes apiece. What? I’m human. I lapse.

It’s been… well, it hasn’t really been anything. I can’t say that it’s been a revelation, nor has it impacted my life negatively. I’ve simply compulsively used other things to fill the time that I would have compulsively, mindlessly, spent on social media. That says more about me than it does about social media. Either way, unless something makes it a real benefit to use, I can’t see myself going back any time soon.

If you see something here that makes you think “Oh, if he likes that, he’ll love this”, please share it in the comments, I love sharing like that. Don’t be bummed out if I’m not into it though.

Beautifully Unconventional – Wolf Alice

I loved ‘My Love is Cool’, so when I found out Wolf Alice had another album out, I was a happy boy. I haven’t had chance to listen to it all yet, but Beautifully Unconventional struck me. It’s not revolutionary, but I like it; I really like Ellie Rowsell’s voice. Continue reading “Wednesday Morning Thriller 4EVR – Music Round-Up”
