100 Songs I Have Loved And Lost On Last.fm

On the 19th of May 2010, I joined music sharing site Last.fm. Since that day, I've racked up 21,642 plays. You can add me as a friend here. A few days ago, I noticed that I had "loved" exactly 100 songs. Thats when I got the idea to look back through them and see how I feel about those songs now! So, part one: 25 songs "loved" between June and September 2010.

I am an art lover, and a music lover, but mostly i'm an aesthetics
lover. At the Lisbon Design Museum, i nearly burst with joy. Literally. I was hyperventilating about perfect dresses and tables and chairs, everything was RIGHT. I think maybe this obsession with aesthetics is what makes Tumblr and Flickr so appealing because its like a constant stream of goodness. So, i thought i'd just do a trawl for some of the most aesthetically pleasing images and post them here, for when i next get Design Withdrawal Symptoms.

sunset children's rooms & play yards - shiny walls
sunset children's rooms & play yards - orange room with aquarium and tunnel
These images are from this Flickr featuring lots of perfect scans and stuff. 1970s childrens interior design from a book called Sunset Children's Rooms & Play Yards.

hello blogspot, its been 283 days since we last met and whilst youre on my mind i thought i would do a catch up although the chances are no one will read this, or care, and i will probably not update you again for another 200 days or so. events of note: the proper end of isobel harrops boy story 1.0, the nicest weekend on earth with the corduroy club (see here), a zillion gigs (12 to be exact), a festival, new friends from all over, college started and isnt too bad. english lit is really good. i just want to cuddle gatsby and nick is dreamy. i went to portugal and wales in the summer and they were both lovely plus i got my gcse results and they are o.k.a.y. things are looking up in i.h land with chips in the train station, dancing to all my favourite bands (slow club on the 15/12 and maybe allo darlin next feb.) and a whole gaggle of most brilliant friends. i cant ACTUALLY recount everything thats happened since my last post but you could visit my tumblr and have a look through my archive, if you are genuinely interested (however unlikely.) you could also have a look see at my last.fm, my 8tracks and my flickr. even my twitter if you want to be kept up to date with my exciting life AKA when i am lay i bed at night or when i'm waiting for the bus/train. maybe i will come update here again when my film camera is developed? that seems like a good time to come back. see you then blogspot xxx
