Loyalty to Florence

When I found out that my favourite artist was releasing a new album I did a lot of things, most which cannot be explain, things like moonwalking, phantom wrestling and spit-bubble blowing. I guess my body reacted in an unprecedented manner partly because never have I anticipated an album quite like this before.

For the first time ever (which I'm ashamed to admit) I made a deal with myself and with Florence Welch that i would have my first listen to her album when i could physically hold, touch, lick the actual CD.

As it lay on my lap, shiny with the unbroken, plastic covering, I reached my hand up, bent it back and pat myself on the back. I had made it through all the "I can put it on a disc for you," "Just download it," "It's incredible, just give it a little listen" and for that I think the back pat is well in reason.

I have yet to listen to every song, taking my time to go through each one and appreciate it for what it is: a masterpiece. But I can tell that this is not the last time I'm going to write about it, or talk about it, or even blatantly admire it. Oh no. This journey is about to begin and I feel like I'm holding the golden ticket.

Here it is in its two disc glory:D

Flo and my Heart

God, I get chills<3

Can you even handle it?

I just experienced one of the best weekends of my life.

Townhall on Friday was the tits. I can't remember most of the costumes I saw but I know my babes looked bitchin' - All of them!

I got to spend time with an old friend, little Asbo and it felt like the good ol' days, you know? Just being drunk and laughing and running around.

On Saturday I went to Kings of Leon for the second time and I got to spend it with my best friend and although I couldn't cry because apparently I'm incapable of doing so these days, I was sobbing with happiness on the inside.

It rained during the encore and in that moment I was the happiest I've been for as long as I can remember.

I got to see most the people who mean something to me and I got to hang out with my babe of a mother, who made me a great deal of home cooked food to bring back. I told you she was a babe.

It felt pretty shitty coming back because I didn't get to see everyone and I know a weekend isn't nearly enough time to cure the blues but I'll be back soon.

So for now, I love you guys. See you in a bit<3
