THINGS I LOVE THURSDAY.

♥ this band, and this man:




i just cannot wait until end of april. i do realise song doesn't sound that amazing, but i dont care. it's probably not the final version... i miss sonny boy. i haven't seen him since.. glasgow? february 2006. i did see him on stage in april 2007, but i didn't get a chance to speak to him, he snuck off somewhere. escaping the screaming fangirls i guess. but i spoke to him on the phone couple of days later. i can't remember if i rang him, or he rang me, but he was getting ready for another gig, swedenside. in make up, ha. and sylle was opening his voice in the background. he said he was sorry we hadn't got a chance to talk. it was a weird trip home. they better come this way, or i will cry. i have a letter somewhere i wrote him ages ago, i should send it to him. check if he still has the same address, i've got some zines to send him. i sent him kersa x years ago, i think before we met, properly and he thought it was brilliant. ha. said i should write the manifesto for the state of the ark. bless him. he really is one of the most awesome people i've ever met and i don't care if you think he's lame or whatever.. i'm still going to get the tattoo he was trying to talk me out of having last time. "angelhead". i was going to get it in his handwriting but turns out his isn't that nice. ha. "what if you hate us one day?" he asked me, and i told him "well, then it will remind me of all the fun i had and all the nice people i met through you."

i also found also found some sort of extremely embarrassing proof of me and my friends being embarrassing fangirls in broken swedish. that was the first time they put us on guest list. we sort of spent the whole day sitting outside tavastia where they played, queueing even though no one else showed up. but i'd sort of got the taste of queueing from manics gigs so we did it. and found out the gig was sold out, which we hadn't expected at all for some reason. and the boys were very lovely and put us on the list! actually, i don't think i've paid to see them since. except for some extreme traveling to get to the gigs. done a few whole tours and all. those were the fucking days.

i think that's actually all i can think of today. i sound like a twat, don't i? oh, i don't give a damn if i do.

"you who stole my solitude" the ark

ootko nähnytätä. tää kuulostaa tosi hyvälle :'>> vaikka mietinki onko levyn versio tällänen hias kanssa? singin about the city on tosiaan vasta demo tossa videossa.. mutta musta siitä kuuluu ihana countryrock. oon liian innoissani uuesta levystä.

ja oi mun päässä on vihdoinkin muotoutunut oma the ark-tatuointi että millasena sen haluun, oon sitä varmaan 5 vuotta miettinyt mutta kun ei oo ollut mistään suunitelmasta sellasta oloa että "tää se on" niin sitte oon epröiny. nyt ku vielä sais rahaa :D. ja miten näitä vois ikinä vihata! viakka niitten musiikki muuttuiski radikaalisti, tai ite muuttuis niin ettei oikeen iskis, niin ei silti pystyis. ne on ollu liian osa Kaikkea. ne on ihania ja mullakin on ikävä. tänään viimeks bussissa itketti Calleth You Cometh I. ja vaikken ookkaan poikien kanssa viettänyt aikaa varmaan samassa mittakaavassa kun sinä niin silti uskon että ne on kaikki hienoimpia ihmisiä mitä maailmasta löytyy<3.
