8 opmerkingen:

  1. 'We are powdered ashes in the light of the beauty
    He said' - Bat for lashes.

    ik weet niet precies meer wat ik wou zeggen, maar het sloeg ongeveer op: 'jaa, dat is leuk! zinnen worden altijd zo mooi po√ętisch. Bijna een verhaal op zichzelf. ' - maar dat is zo hysterisch, maar ik wist even niet hoe ik het anders moest zeggen.
    Nou ja.

    Ik heb de nieuwe cd van Laura Marling trouwens nog niet beluisterd. Ik zit nog steeds op het level: Ghosts en The Man Sings, dus ja. En die suitende zoutzak-attitude is gewoon een nieuw soort hipheid. Bij MGMT zie je dat ook, verveeldheid alom. op zich gaat het ook wel, verveelt kijken, maar die zoutzakhouding gaat toch echt te ver! even wat liveshows kijken op youtube..
    Hoop jij verder nog op een speciaal optreden? Ik bid elke nacht op mijn blote knietjes voor Joanna Newsom, maar het ziet er niet naar uit dat ze komt. meeeh

  2. Ah, die is ook erg mooi. Ik heb ook ongever 2 minuten naar hun nummer titels in iTunes gestaad, maar ik ken de nummers niet goed genoeg om te weten waar de echte mooie quotes in staan.. gelukkig heb ik jou daarvoor dus :p

    Jaaa oee aa Joanna! Daar hoop ik ook heel erg op! Maar nee idd.. hoogstwaarschijnlijk niet.
    Ik hoop op Regina Spektor, natuurlijk :p, maar dat gaat 'm ook echt niet worden. Lady Gaga omg ja. Fiona Apple nog steeds.. maar gaat ook niet gebeuren. Ik hoop allemaal op dingen die toch niet gaan gebeuren. )-:

    Heb jij trouwens al 2 weken gratis de nrc next met je LLkaartje? (Tellsell manier van praten)

  3. Don't say goodbye,
    they could burry him
    because the world is round
    and he might return
    - reginaaaaaaaaaaaa

    Door jouw citaten ben ik meteen Angus & Julia Stone gaan opzoeken en liefhebben. ahh

  4. Oh en als we het toch over Laura Marling hebbe
    (en dat hadden we niet):

    You'll be reborn: bigger and stronger,
    but less alive

    (nu hou ik op hoor).

  5. Hey die van mij hebben allemaal met doodgaan te maken. Wat eng.

    (nu echt.)

  6. I was writing it back, when it used to write me
    Joanna Newsin

    misschien moet ik zelf een plekje zoeken voor deze uitspattingen? (:

    (ik neem niet eens meer de moeite..)

  7. Ik maak allemaal typefouten, nog enger.


  8. Haha sodeju :p Ja, Angus en Julia zijn erg tof.

    Die van Laura Marling is ook mooi idd, en je anderen ook natuurlijk :-)
