  1. I found a whole display of old CD singles going for 50p each while I was out shopping. Funnily enough, every single decent one came to £5 exactly. Gnarls Barkley - Smiley Faces Massive Attack - Live With Me Ray LaMontagne - Trouble REM - Bad Day Placebo - Twenty Years [disc 1 + 2] Doves - Snowden Morrissey - Redondo Beach/There Is A Light That Never Goes Out Morrissey - In The Future When All's Well Supergrass - St. Petersburg
  2. I bought Money/Magazine by this band Daggers that supported Gary Numan the other night. They were awesome. I wanted to buy the vinyl really, but I'm making do with the cheaper downloads for now.
  3. Gary Numan at the newly revamped Manchester Academy last Saturday. It was part of the Replicas tour. [Blog here!]
  4. Manic Street Preachers - Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head
  5. Thanks. A friend of mine has been going back and forth with veganism for what feels like ages now. If I were to ever bother doing it, I'd wanna properly DO IT, y'know, rather than like...keep giving into the cheese or whatever! Which is what I know I would do, so there's no point me trying! I do love dairy and I don't have any aversions to it, so there isn't really any reason for me to go vegan. My friend's gone vegan yet again at the moment but I don't know how long it will last this time 'round! On a completely unrelated note, I'm thinking of getting a Manic Street Preachers tattoo. I have ideas. Hmm...
  6. Very interesting, thanks! I'll say it again though...I just can't go vegan! I wouldn't want to, and even if I did want to...I don't think I'd be able to do it.
  7. Oh yeah, I've considered all the nutritonal and health implications involved. I'm gonna go and pay my doctor a quick visit as soon as possible, too, just to see what advice he might have. I used to think I could never become a vegetarian, but I'm on day 9 now and I haven't missed it yet! And that's included a trip to McDonalds and a spaghetti bolognese being cooked, so y'know! I suppose there will be a kinda peak though that I'll have to push through. Maybe in a couple of weeks or something. Like pushing past the burn, so to speak. Well, that's what I'm expecting anyway. We shall see.
  8. Next up now is Gary Numan at Manchester Academy on the 8th March. It's part of the Replicas tour, so it should be double ace! Really looking forward to it now, actually.
  9. Manchester Versus Cancer 2008 at the MEN Arena on Saturday. It was a great but very long night! Blog here, if you fancy a read of that. Although The View also played and I forgot all about them until lastnight, so they're not included in the review. The fact that I completely forgot about them says an awful lot, to be honest.
  10. Hi! Thanks very much. I have indeed decided to take the plunge and go veggie. I'm on my fourth meat-free day now! I'm gonna have a chat with my friend Charlotte (who's been a veggie for going on 10 years now) at the weekend, but if there's anything I'm still wondering about after that I'll drop you a line.
  11. Thanks. I'm just taking my time with deciding because mainly my reasons are that I would like to eat free-range all the time but can't afford to, and basically just that I find meat pretty gross half the time. The other day my boyfriend was making some burgers out of a lovely batch of mince that his mum had got off her friend's farm, and his hands were getting all bloody and then when I was eating mine and really enjoying it, it was a bit pink in the middle and I just couldn't finish it. I just freak out when it dawns on me that I am eating something's flesh, no matter how good it tastes. It's not like I just plain disagree with the eating of animals or anything like that. I've always been of the opinion that it's a perfectly natural thing that human beings have done since human beings existed, but I really don't agree with the intensive farming methods we have these days. Chicken would be the only thing I'd really miss. I love it, and I do eat quite a lot of it as it stands, but I just can't afford to eat free-range. Most other meats I'm not that fussed about. I don't even like lamb and I don't really like pork, and I'm not that fussed about beef...so y'know...it kinda also makes me think that I might as well become a veggie seeing as I'm not a massive meat-lover anyway. I really don't want to decide and then just give up a few weeks later though, which is why I'm giving it this much thought. I need to know if my heart's completely in it. I'm gonna try it for a couple of weeks and see how I feel after that, I think. I'd say that's the best way of going into it.
  12. Haha...it's not quite that bright...I have played with the brightness and contrast a bit, but it's really not far off! Shame I'm probably too short for my head to pop up enough above the crowd for my hair to do its work. And thanks Inga May!
  13. I'm seriously considering becoming a vegetarian. Me and my flatmate are trying to cook a mushroom risotto. So far it tastes and smells very nice but I don't know whether the texture is going to be right. I hope so.
