radiohead – i forgive you

Not many people know this, but I used to have taste in music. The first ever gig I went to was Radiohead in the RDS when I was 13 years old. Yeah forget Boyzone, Take That, Blur or Oasis – I was into Radiohead and proud.

But then as I got older, we both changed and the love affair was over…  The more mainstream I became, the less mainstream they did and we just didn’t click anymore. Then nearly 10 years after I saw them for the first time in the RDS, I went along to Marley Park to rekindle the memories.

They broke my heart.

Not one – not a single one – of their old tunes did they play. Notta one. I felt cheated and like a girl who’d gained weight and ran into an old boyfriend who was now beautiful and trendy and in a totally different league.

Which is why I didn’t even go near ‘In Rainbows’, I couldn’t take the risk.

But then, just the other night, whilst flicking randomly through the channels, I saw them on Jools Holland, and couldn’t resist. And I loved it!  I don’t know what it means though – have I gotten taste again or are they just getting worse? Who knows. All I know is I’m happy to have them back in my lives again. At least until the next album anyway.

Monday again? Seriously?

Where do the weekends go? *cries*

I spent most of this weekend watching telly and getting fat…. fun!

Had drinks and movies with the girls on Friday night and watched more Summer Heights High. What a great programme.

On Saturday night, I was dragged to TGI Fridays for a friend’s birthday and drank about 5 fishbowls of Long Island Iced Tea. Didn’t think there was any alcohol in them, hence the fishbowl sized glasses. Turns out I was very, very, very wrong  as I became very, very, verrrry dhrunk and stumbled the whole  way down to D2’s. Speaking of D2’s – I love the beer garden there, but what’s it going to be like when the patio heaters are banned?!

Last night I watched Consiparacy Theory with the fella. I forced myself to stay awake until the end, to find out what the big theory was but woke up just as the credits started to roll. Woke the fella up to tell me what happened (he’d seen it before)  and turns out I didn’t miss much.

The film did get me googling about other conspiracy theories however…

the origins of AID’s…

9/11 theories…

Paul McCartney is actually dead…

The white lines left in the sky by planes are actually ‘chemtrails’, pumped out by the government to change your DNA…

Make your own conspiracy theory!
