  1. Absolutely gutted to learn that Keith Flint has died. I saw The Prodigy twice a few years back and those were two absolutely mindblowing shows. Rest in peace you twisted firestarter. 🖤

  2. Just listened. 

    LOVED that performance of Song For Someone. In fact, if you listen to the second chorus going into the guitar solo on this version, you hear Bono sing "A song for someone...like me". Oh wow. 

    And of course, what is there I could say about The Little Things that I haven't already said and isn't perfectly encapsulated in this performance?

  3. Listening to Summer of Love and Red Flag Day right after The Blanket of Night by Elbow. The Blanket of Night came out on their album The Take Off and Landing of Everything in 2014 and touches on the same things - it's about a refugee couple on a boat sailing away from whatever hell they've left behind to a new home. Turns it works well when followed by Summer of Love and Red Flag Day.

    I haven't seen either of those films, but I will make an effort to find them. 

    Probably like most people, I saw him in "Downfall" where he played Hitler. Perhaps inevitably, someone has made a new version of the 'angry Hitler' meme to mark his passing. 

    I shall try and look up some of his other film roles.

    Someone did actually make a video to mark his passing - but it's incredibly respectful. It contains clips from many of his other movies. I always found his performance of Hitler in Downfall to be something truly incredible; it was like he was being inhabited by him.

  5. 44777 - Of course it took me until Valentine's Day to realise just how lonely I've been lately. Been slogging non-stop at work over the last two months which meant I didn't get to see any of my extended family over Christmas and barely any of my immediate family. Barely seen my friends at all lately, and of course on today of all days I'm seeing couple photos plastered across my entire social feed. Half my friends at my age are either in a solid relationship, engaged or having kids, and of course I just have to sit and see all of it.

    44, 764 - Late-night counting. I'm still trying to find a job :( There must be one out there somewhere.

    44766 - I know the feeling. I'm currently have to look for jobs as my current one isn't giving me enough hours to sustain a living. The constant cycle of rejection is getting me down. 😞 You're not alone.

    44702 I've been kind of absent lately, my brother in the States was diagnosed with cancer last week so that's pretty much whats on my mind.....other than that I'm fine. It's beautiful outside with the snow so I just might go out for a walk.

    44707 - Sending you all my support.

  8. 44588 - Counting down until this drone operator at Gatwick Airport does the honourable thing and turns himself into the police. I'm not currently due to fly anywhere but I have a friend who's affected. I feel for everyone at the airport, including staff who must be stressing out big time right now.
