Busy busy.

- Sorry for the lack of posts these couple of days, have been extremely busy. Busy with school, busy with work, yada yada.

- I hardly have time for myself nowadays, and the World Cup makes it worse.

- Anyways, I caught "She's The Man" today with Dennis, Vincent, and Wah. Really fabulous show. Well, the main reason I liked it was because it was based on Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night". Nah, who am I kidding, Amanda Bynes is the only reason I wanted to watch it.

- School has been a 'lil monotonous the past week; and ironically, my current iPod fave is Hot Chip's "Over and Over" (and over and over and over and over...).

- And I was supposed to hand in my Class Transfer Appeal letter on Thursday, but I didn't (sorry 1V!). I thought, it would seem really bad, as I got to know the lads, then dump them to go back to my former class (though 1V was the best class ever, and I don't think that anything else that happens in NAFA can top that). Heh, and no, Russell Lee had not influenced my decision in any way.

- Have found my new favourite store- Actually. And yes, all I wanted was this cool bag but I had to buy some shit to get it. The cool shit includes a Local Celebrity tee and Fender slippers. And I'm still deliberating on the Lucky jeans and the CBGB tee.

- Was reading the May issue of the Brit mag i-D, and was pretty excited to see Lily Allen inside. Was surfing Gorilla vs. Bear just now, and was pretty excited to see Lily Allen inside.

- Oh, and my current soundtrack-of-the-week also includes We Are Scientists' "Ram It Home", and Art Brut's "Good Weekend".

- Art Brut: "Got myself a BRAND NEW GIRLFRIEND!"
We Are Scientists: "All my friends ask if my girlfriend's pretty. I said I don't know; I only look at her titties.
Art Brut: "I saw her naked TWICE!"

- Yes, those are the actual lyrics.

- Kinda had a topsy-turvy kinda week. Yes, I only use kiddie vocabulary when I'm serious. Was so psyched after our previous match (which we lost 4-1 by the way), the passion died down midweek, and was ignited last night by Deutchland. I never liked German football, but Klinsmann's side plays the kind of attacking football that makes you just want to go up and lick your plasma telly.

- And SLK-ians, watch out for my goal Lahm-esque tomorrow.

- Speaking of topsy-turvy, I thought for the whole week that Lily Allen was the new "It" gurl, only to be overthrown by Amanda Bynes hours before, then after seeing Lily on Gorilla vs. Bear, it's Ms. Allen again.

- She smokes. She drinks. Oh and she sings also.

- Lily Allen reminds me of: Feist, Regina Spektor, Nelly Furtado, Brazil, Esthero, summer, Mattafix, Ella Fitzgerald, Cuba, Lindsay Lohan, vodka tonic by the beach bar, piano loops, window shopper... (her album comes out on the 17th of July)

- Lily Allen reminds Pitchfork of:
" Lily's debut single "LDN" is breezy, lilting summertime pop, a horn-tinged tribute to London-- loving without being fawning, charming without being all winks and nods."

Caught the England/Paraguay match just now at a café. What a bore. And what's the fuss with Peter Crouch? Apparently nobody can tell that he totally sucks.

- I'm increasingly attracted to Chinatown.

- Noise you should listen to (all highly recommended):

Lily Allen - LDN
Lily Allen - Smile
Lily Allen - Friday Night

Lily Allen - Friend of Mine
Lily Allen - Mixtape 1
Lily Allen - Mixtape 2

Babyshambles - Killamangiro

Hot Chip - Over and Over
Interpol - Evil
Interpol - Obstacle 1
Art Brut - Good Weekend

Thanks for letting me know. I just found out I can't find my own copy of "Ram It Home" also, so I've put up "In Action" instead.
