FOTD - Remember When

I've been struggling quite a bit lately with my confidence in my makeup and my looks in general. For the first time in a long time, I've been avoiding mirrors at all costs, regardless of the fact my house is filled with them and I usually can't walk past them without glaring for a good few minutes.

What Kind Of Person Are You At A Gig?

The next time you're at a gig, take a look at the people around you. How different are they all, not just in appearance but their attitude when it comes to the show environment? I'm a self-confessed people-watcher, so no matter what situation I'm in, I'll be keeping a subtle eye out for all the people around me, just to gauge what to expect from them. There's the ones to steer clear of if you want to leave with all limbs intact, the ones to cling to if a pit forms near you - but what kind of gig-goer are you?

Issues - Issues

Issues' self-titled debut screams 'nu metal', then melodically sings it through to you in case you didn't hear it the first time. The band have invented a different realm to other musical crossbreeds, and when held without comparison to other metal/R&B, this album is creative and inspiring. But it seems Issues' identity crisis throughout this debut could well be a toxic product of the ever-popular Punk Goes Pop compilations, where Issues featured a cover of NSYNC's Merry Christmas Happy Holidays, which is all well and good on a cover, but an entire album of grating combinations doesn't pull off as well as you'd hope.

Zombies 2nd Womb Emancipation Day

Zombies turned 2 earlier this month, and in true fashion, I remembered it too late.
I really can't believe it's been two whole years since this zombie was raised from the dead. She's changed a lot since her first appearance on the web - she's evolved from a solely beauty blog to a blog that pretty much covers any topic I can think of to write about.

Yes, I personify my blog. She's a 'she' for many reasons - she has mood swings and days when I don't even want to talk to her because she frustrates the crap out of me, demanding commitment and attention when I just don't have the time to dedicate to her. But I love her nonetheless.

From the first follower to recent readers, I want to thank you all for your continued support of my space on the web, every follower and every viewing figure has kept me going over the last 2 years and I can't see myself stopping any time soon!

The Used - Imaginary Enemy

I can, hand on heart, describe The Used as my favourite band of all time, having discovered them in 2003 and fallen in love with every single track ever since. It's rare to find a band that you can't possibly fault, but I have held these boys on a pedestal since I first heard Blue and Yellow. My interest in this band doesn't fall short of anything less than worship, so any news of a new album sends me into a frenzy. From the perspective of a dedicated fan since the self-titled days, is the Imaginary Enemy a worthy opponent?
