My Obsession

If anyone has been paying close attention to my Twitter account they have picked up on the fact that I am crushing hard on someone at university. It took me a while to come to a conclusion but I think I know one of the main reasons for this overwhelming crush, apart from the fact that he is absolutely adorable. He looks like the result of Alex Pettyfer and Max Thieriot having an adorable baby together.


Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Yeah Yeah Yeahs are officially my favourite artistes. They have justly climbed to the top of my Lastfm charts and with devotion will remain there until the Dusk of Time and beyond. My new life goal is to see them perform live. These few words cannot begin to describe my obsession with them, their videos are beautiful, their songs divine and their lyrics more lyriquotable than any other artist that I favour.

P.S. Lyriquotable: (adjective) able to be lyriquoted. see “Lyriquoting”

Lyriquoting: (verb) the act of quoting the lyrics of one’s favourite artists.

I have discovered that I have a trend for becoming obsessed with bands that have a female lead vocalist. Is it that female fronted bands are just so much better than their male counterparts? Or do they just hold more appeal with me? I suppose the trend started with Amy Lee and Evanescence but in fact I think the young, tender roots of this obsession were germinated with Shirley Manson and Garbage. Evanescence were my first favourite, until I discovered No Doubt and Gwen Stefani. Then, out of nowhere the feisty flame-haired Hayley Williams appeared on the scene with Paramore. It was love at first listen and the others were gently nudged aside by Paramore’s brilliance. Then my second mistress stole my heart, the infectious and awe-inspiring Karen O and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Also in my harem of female fronted bands are the delightful Emily Haines and Metric. Though I have a large harem, Karen O and Hayley Williams are by far my favourites and hold very special places in my heart and ears.

Sunglasses in the Wayfarer Style

Posted: December 17, 2009 in Uncategorized

Over the past few months I have slowly cultivated an unhealthy obsession with/lust after sunglasses in the style of the Ray-Ban Wayfarer. Each time that I see a celebrity or other person wearing a pair my lust escalates. In short before the year is up I hope to have acquired, through legal or illegal means, a pair of sunglasses in the Wayfarer style. I will settle for lesser imitations of the original or by some incredible stroke of luck, a pair of actual Ray-Bans.
