Wow. Flaming Lips are going to play all of Soft Bulletin at Ally Pally next year. Tickets go on sale on Friday. I’m seriously tempted. They’re still in my top five favourite bands to see live, so much fun. It’s a guaranteed grin fest. I love it. It might have something to do with how unbeliveably fit Wayne Coyne is. He’d definitely get it. He’s the perfect husband guy, he would look hot just drinking wine while sat on the sofa, with a fire roaring next to him. Maybe he’d have a cat sat on his lap too. Occasionally he’d sing you a little song about the rainbow coloured hippos he believes live at the bottom of our garden. Some days you’d come home from work and he’d set up a pool band in the dining room. He’d be lovely.



All Grown Up August 27, 2010

I’m 27 now. Though according to Luke I look like a combination of these three. Gutted. One day I’ll look grown up and sophisticated. Saying that, I’m wearing dungarees today, so I’ve got a pretty long way to go.

Never mind the fact that I don’t really eat bread, I need these in my life.

MTV brilliantness August 2, 2010

Last week was the I Worked At MTV in the 00s party, the name makes it bloody obvious what it was really: a reunion for all us kids that worked there in the last ten years. Soooo much fun!!!! The night was originally planned for about 20 or 30 people, but soon enough there were 325 people signed up to attend on the Facebook page. I reckon a couple of hundred people turned up and swamped a tiny beer garden in Camden. Incredible. It was so wonderful seeing everyone, even though I was only there for 18 months it did feel like a proper reunion. They really are the loveliest bunch of people you could ever want to work with. It’s great being somewhere were everyone shares that same passion for music. They all know everything there is to know about the last ten years of pop music, I love it. Everyone was wandering round with a big grin on their face, such a wicked evening.

It was proper organised too, with wristbands, a photo booth and a few of the staff DJing. Brilliant.
