three things...

...are getting me through this most hideous couple of weeks of exams.

1.
Summer is a' comin

just little things that I am looking forward to are helping me muchly.

Like thoughts of these....


and these...


and these...


and of course these...!

what are all of youuuuuu looking forward to this summer??

It's so soon -

Latitude is a mere 43 days away!!!


2.
Stornoway


A band hailing from Oxford, whom I currently adore.
And apparently they are rather enchanting live, with cello, violin et cetera
And I do believe they will be playing at Camp Bestival in Dorset where I will be spending my birthday this year!!

Listen to this. It's bound to get'cha smiling:


3.
The Midnight Beast

some may remember their parody of Ke$has 'tik tok', which was brilliant
and pretty much anything they do is brilliant

I mean no offense to anyone by posting this, by the way!


And if you need an excuse to watch it, it really is a brilliant satire on 'the modern pop song', with nice use of autotune, rap sections et al. And yet, to be honest, these three are just as much musicians as they are comedians; this song is worryingly very catchy - worrying in the sense that it's probably not the best tune to sing to yourself as you go about your day to day lives. Listen to it and you'll understand what I mean.

  1. I'll definitely be giving them a look-see at Bestival - I do love a man drinking tea out of a proper china cup.
    My summer is now about having the luxury of doing completely impractical things, such as sourcing a vintage typewriter to paint pastel, making festival bunting for my tent, and generally lolling about in the (please God) British sunshine with a G&T in hand. Bliss.
