"style" over substance.

and to expand slightly: In 50 years, will people remember her songs? Or just what she used wears? Or neither?

to expand even more (and defeat the point of the question!!) :

i was listening to the Beatles the other day, and it just makes me think, they were just four ordinary boys from liverpool, and they changed the course of music, really. Is there anyone around today who is having the same effect and changing history like they did? I suppose you can only tell from a distance, and maybe we're not far enough away from it, but from the 90s / 00s there hasn't really been any big, amazing musicial movement which is liked by the majority and has changed the face of music. I know I am looking at it from the perspective of "alternative" music, but if you consider the main genres that are popular in the mainstream at the moment - pop is just forgettable, indie even more so, and RnB / rap doesn't really seem to be doing anything different. The majority of the "alternative" genres that I like are old genres anyway (e.g. goth), so it kind of makes it seem like, to me at least, there are not really any bands / genres which are that good now. When I say things like this and people recommend bands for me to listen to, I usually can't really hear in them what makes them so different and so memorable. But even when you listen to the Beatles now, after all this time, you can still hear what it was in them which made them so different, both then and now.

Chrome by VNV Nation
Dominion / Mother Russia by The Sisters of Mercy
Alice by The Sisters of Mercy

That song about a monster coming over the hill!! 

Just because they are all totally fantastic songs, some make me want to dance right there on the spot, and some are just lovely! 

See, I'm now happy just from thinking about listening to them, so that must be a good thing! :)

I have almost caught up on my reviews for this year – which is good as it’s nearly the next! Its not a chore to do these reviews, its just that sometimes I feel like I’m not in the mood to write as well as I could do, so I like to wait until I’m in a writing mood! Unfortunately it means that these gig reviews are really late, as I just didn’t feel like I could do them justice. I might actually post some pictures as well – I know I always say that, but I have some great ones of the March Violets gig that I should really post!

Red Lorry Yellow Lorry and Luxury Stranger at Slimelight, 16th October 2010 )

The March Violets / James Ray’s Gangwar / Faderhead, 13th November 2010 )


Not really a gig, but...Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella, Sadler’s Wells, 28th December 2010 )

So that’s it for the gig reviews. This year hasn’t been too good for gigs – I haven’t been to as many as usual, and most of them were bands that I’d already seen before. Next year is already looking excellent though, I’ve got tickets for the following already:

Murderdolls – 12th February (not seen since 2003!)
Rob Zombie – 16th February (woooooo! never seen before!!)
Blancmange :D :D – 15th March (never thought I’d ever see!! Wooo!!)
Bloodstock – 11th – 14th August (Immortal! Haha! I don’t even really know much of their music, but I’m excited about it anyway!!)
The Mission – 22nd October (never seen before!)

I’m also probably going to:

Nachtmahr / Uberbyte – 5th February
Resistanz festival in Sheffield – Covenant, And One, Uberbyte, Suicide Commando and many more!
Manowar if they announce any other dates other than Birmingham!! (such a random place to play! Why not London! Boo!)
DV8 - July – I actually want to go on holiday to York around this festival as I’ve never been there before and it looks lovely, but just need to persuade others to go so it’s cheaper to book a flat / cottage / house.
Whitby – October

Ooh I’m excited about it all already! :)

my favourite Beatles songs are:

A Day In The Life
Glass Onion
Back In The USSR
Here Comes The Sun

I really love the whole of the Sgt Pepper album - it fits together so well, and its all so singable, haha.

And two which I love the covers of:

Dear Prudence (Siouxsie and the Banshees)
Because (can't remember who its by but its on the soundtrack of American Beauty!)

I think they're the best Pop band ever. They have such a range of songs which appeal to everyone, they're not all "pop", some of them are pretty weird, but thats great that they felt they could change in that kind of way, and still remained popular. Oh, and I love this 70s remix/mix of their songs, haha:

Please note I'm at work so can't check if the sound is any good on that video! :)

I think I need more information before I answer this question...is there something to put the cockroach in? or will it just be running around free? If it was running around free, I'd kill it as I wouldn't want it to crawl on me while I slept!! But if there was a box or tank or something to put it in, yeah I'd keep it. I'd probably make some kind of obstacle course for it, so I can amuse myself by making it do funny things...after all I would have a lot of time on my hands!

[Error: unknown template qotd]

The first song that springs to mind is Tainted Love by Soft Cell - I like all the versions of this song I've heard (so far!) but the Soft Cell is the best one I think! I even like the original, which is unusual for me as I don't usually like soul.

"Hurt" by Johnny Cash comes close to being better than the original, but Trent Reznor's version is just slightly better. "Feeling Good" by Muse is amazing.

I actually can't think of that many covers at the moment! Maybe I'll come back and edit this later! :)

day 16 → a song that makes you cry (or nearly)

Lovesong by The Cure

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again

However far away I will always love you
However long I stay I will always love you
Whatever words I say I will always love you
I will always love you

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am free again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again

However far away I will always love you
However long I stay I will always love you
Whatever words I say I will always love you
I will always love you


Partly because really passionate romantic songs make me cry generally, partly because it reminds me of uni and that makes me cry because it reminds me of when I was really lonely and missed everyone! and partly because there is an amazing cover of it by Jack Off Jill in which she sings with *so* much feeling, its just amazing. But I love the song as well!

Also, Everlong by the Foo Fighters also makes me cry - for the similar uni reason. And Poison by Alice Cooper, because it reminds me of a relationship with a lovely guy which I still feel guilty about ending...

But anyway. Less of these depressing thoughts! :)

I think I'm going to do one of these "challenge" thingys, just to make my journal more interesting, haha. I've still got a few books and films to review as well, so I'll do some of them as well! I just found this challenge thing randomly on the internet, so here goes! :)

I'm assuming we count Lennon/McCartney songs as well...

In which case my favourite is "A Day In The Life". I love the way that the two different sections contrast, and the story it tells. Plus its easy to sing along to!

I also really like Glass Onion - I like all the little references to other Beatles songs in it :)

I don't actually know much of John Lennon's solo stuff - only "Imagine", and Happy Xmas (War Is Over). Unfortunately those two haven't really encouraged me to look into more of his work, as although I love the Beatles, I find those two songs a bit wishy washy!

Argh they annoy me! Not everyone can get on with each other all the time - but surely they can at least speak civilly enough to each other to advance their business ventures. If people don't start talking to each other *everything* will fall apart. Of course I'm talking about Whitby, and the Goth weekend.

Theres so much talk about "official" and "unofficial" events, when really it doesn't seem to be about that now. Its just lots of venues in one place holding goth events, which combine to create the Whitby goth weekend. Plus events at the Abbey, despite being organised by English Heritage does that mean they're "unofficial" as well? :) I think the best plan would be to just create a list of the venues in Whitby which are able to hold events, a list of the people / organisations who wish to hold events, the dates they wish to hold their events on, and match them all up together. I know nothing about promotion of big music events, but this seems the most sensible, so it can all be decided to the benefit of everyone, *and* the goth scene and paying customers. As it's us who lose out the most, through the organisers ineptitude and bickering between themselves. It doesn't seem hard to be able to organise say 3 events on each evening - two band events and one club event - which should give enough choice for everyone. And if I think about it there are at least three music venues and two nightclubs (and thats not even counting the Spa).

Ah I don't know. I hope that even if there isn't anything "official" (argh that word again!) someone will still organise something in April and something in October. I really like Whitby as a town, and for somewhere to go on holiday, its really lovely. Or we could all just go to DV8 in York, as that sounds like an equally lovely city, and it was apparently excellent this year and had some great bands on!

My favourite when I was younger was Michael Jackson, and yes I still enjoy his songs now. Although I don't have his more recent album (Invincible I think its called?) Dangerous was the first album I ever owned, and HIStory was the first album I got when I totally got into the music, so I love those two most of all. I was *so* sad when he died - I cried and I'm not ashamed to admit it! What made it worse was that I had tickets to see him, and now I will never get to! :( When I was 11 quite a few people I know went to see him, but I didn't go to gigs back then, so I didn't go. I do remember my mum waking me up to watch the 9pm news as it had a bit about when Michael Jackson arrived in London for that gig.

Even though its not my favourite style of music, I still really like his songs, and they have such good memories for me. And quite sad ones - we sang "You Are Not Alone" at our leaving assembly when we left primary school, so it always makes me a bit sad when I hear it!

I would only lose interest if they changed style to become more "popular". If they continued on the same style, it would be a great thing, as I always like everyone to hear about my favourite bands :) Although I don't like it that the venues they would play would get bigger, there are more positives in the fact that they'll play more, have more merchandise for me to buy!, and have more money to release more songs.

One band which I am a bit annoyed about in this regard is The 69 Eyes. They released two "glam rock" albums before they were famous, then three or four amazing "goth" albums and became more popular, and then as that was becoming less popular, went back to glam. The lead singers voice is amazing on the goth albums, I'm really disappointed that they haven't made more. Although maybe they will!

I don't tend to like bands which are in the mainstream charts nowadays, as I do prefer alternative music, but thats not to say that I wouldn't like a band just because they are "mainstream" - one of my favourite songs at the moment is by Scooter, and they are about as mainstream as you get aren't they? :) Generally I don't like the popular styles at the moment, however in the late 70s / early 80s I think I would have liked almost everything in the charts!

Book Forty - On The Road by Jack Kerouac )

Book Forty One - Hitler and The Holocaust by Robert S Wistrich )

Film 28 - Hunger )

Film 29 - Remember the Secret Policeman's Ball )

I also caught up on "A Passionate Woman" which we had recorded from the TV a little while ago. It was great. Billie Piper played a young woman in the 50s who had an affair with a man who was shot by his wife when she found out he was having an affair, and then Sue Johnson played the same character in the 80s, still with her husband and still thinking about the other man she loved. All the actors were excellent, and it was a great study on "love" and why you stay in your relationships.

I'm currently reading "Birdman" by Mo Hayder, which although its good, I always think Mo Hayder's books go into a little too much detail about the sick side of the serial killers, instead of just focusing on the police investigation. I have read another of her books before, and I thought it was just that one, but its the same in this one too. But it is still good despite that, and, as with most crime books, I'll probably finish it today or tomorrow!

Slimelight again tonight - woo! :) I've been quite a few times recently, which is great! I really love it, now they've improved and refurbished bits of it its probably my favourite club. The mix of music is great, the drinks are cheap, it goes on for a good amount of time - and with an added bonus that tonight there are going to be five bands on - four goth bands before, and then XP8 during the night. The main goth band is Voices of Masada, playing their last gig (so I hope they aren't *too* good so that I feel bad that I've missed them before, haha), and I'm also looking forward to seeing The Mumbles, which is a band of a guy I used to talk to on vampirefreaks. They also fully show their influences - their record label is called "Mumbling Release" - I wonder where they got that from! :D

Whitby! :)

The Whitby Goth Weekend in April 2010 is the next exciting thing I'm going to write about! :) It was only the second time we (me and Katie) had been, and will definately definately be going again! :)

We didn't get a ticket to the main event - at £40 for 6 bands I thought it was quite expensive, and there wasn't anyone I really wanted to see playing. Instead, we went to the Transmission night at the Met on Friday evening, the Costume Ball at the Met on Saturday, and to see Uberbyte at the Shambles on Sunday.

We got there ok on Friday, despite my atrocious direction following (NOT map reading - I'm good at reading the map, but just not the printed directions from multimap!) which meant we went the wrong way for a while....and the slight panic when an accident on the A171 meant we couldn't go the way we wanted to. But I map-read us out of that problem! :) We arrived too late to check in the hotel at lunchtime, so we just parked at the Leisure Centre Car Park and looked around some of the stalls, meeting up with Rob and Gemma for a while as well. Again I was disappointed that there was no vinyl for sale, but maybe that was a good thing otherwise I would have spent much more money than I did. As it was I just bought three cds from the Resurrection Records stall, from the sale section so they were £5 each! :)

The hotel was really lovely, such a nice room! We have one booked for October already (a different hotel), but maybe we'll go back next April :) There was a great idea for breakfast, as it was just put in a basket outside your room so you could have it any time you got up, instead of having to get up at a certain time, which was good! In the evening we met up with Katie's friend Emma and her friends (they were staying in the same hotel) and went to the Fish and Chip restaurant we went to in October. It was nice, again, and I again had Whitby Scampi, hehe :) Some of Emma's friends had some great steampunk outfits. There did seem to be a lot more steampunk dressed people around, and although I don't think I'd wear it (I prefer black and silver to brown and gold! :) ) it looks amazing. There were generally lots of lovely dressed goth people walking around, although less than in October. Looking around the shops on Saturday a little old man said how lovely our outfits were, it was really sweet, hehe. He generally sounded really impressed by everyone's outfits, hehe.

The night at the Met was good, some excellent music was played, a good mix of goth and 80s. It was a bit annoying as it was advertised as going on until 2am but closed at 1am, but it was still good. The costume ball on Saturday was great as well, we went as a queen bee (Katie) and a ladybird (me!). There was a guy disturbingly dressed in one of those...oh I can't remember what they are called, but like one of Sacha Baron Cohen's characters wears (I think)...it was horrible! Although he knew that so deliberatly stayed by the entrance so everyone was disturbed as they came in! Someone dressed as a gravestone won the "horror" catagory, a girl won the Superheros catagory, although I'm not sure who she was supposed to be! Her hair was all standing up on the top of her head (apparently it was dreads coiled round a wire frame) which looked great. and someone dressed as Osama Bin Laden won the "other" catagory. Some more good music was played here as well.

On Sunday we walked up to the Abbey, although didn't go into it, and had tea, which was nice :) The weather was really lovely so it was really nice to just walk around. Not so sure about all the goths posing on the gravestones though, I don't really like that. But that reminds me - I compiled a Goth I-Spy for Katie, it was great! :D And that was one thing I was going to add for next year, as well as Monks, a matching goth couple, and a few other things! :) Oh! and while we were sitting on the sea front (eating icecreams!) we saw goths bungee jumping!!! For a charity I think. It was a bit scary to watch though, I don't know why anyone would want to do it!!

Uberbyte's gig was really great. They played at the Shambles, which was a big pub on the side of the harbour bit - probably the only gig I've been to where I've been able to see the sea and the band at the same time! :) They played some great songs, and quite a few good new ones, I'm looking forward to hearing their new album, i think its out sometime this month. It was good to see there were lots of goths who like cyber as well as goth :) I actually got a couple of quite good pictures well, which was suprising as my gig pictures are usually just blurs! We spoke to them a bit after the gig as well, which was nice. All over the pub there were adverts for the DV8 festival, in York in July. It really looks great, theres some great bands/people playing, with a goth stage, industrial stage and a punk stage, all for £45. I really want to go, but need to find an affordable hotel first! :)

Whitby was really great, such a "nice" weekend. That is usually such a wishy washy word, but it was just so nice! So relaxing, and so nice to see everyone dressed up and everything. It always encourages me to wear more nice "goth" clothes and dress up more! Although not sure if I'll be able to do that as much now as I've broken my beautiful purple boots :( :( but its just the zip so I'm going to take them to the shoe place and hopefully get them fixed!

I've written quite a lot so I think I'll stop there, but might come back and edit it if I think of anything else cool we saw!

Well I decided not to read Azincourt - mainly due to the fact that its a heavy hardback, and I didn't want to carry that all around London with me! So over the weekend I read these books instead:

Books Twenty Two and Twenty Three )
I'm currently reading Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides, and it's clear that it suffers from the curse of the second novel! (see also: The Little Friend by Donna Tartt) The Virgin Suicides was such an excellent book, but I'm almost half way through this book and its really not as good, it doesn't grip you half as much (even though the subject matter is more controversial, almost). which is a shame really. However having just read some reviews, it apparently is a rip off of Midnight's Children, which is a book that I do want to read, so hopefully that'll be better :)

I had a quite good weekend - even though I feel bad I didn't do much OU work, although I shouldn't really as I'm still a couple of months ahead on the course! On Saturday I went to London, to the Portrait Gallery, Covent Garden and Camden. I haven't had a day like that in London for ages, so it was excellent. I went to the Portrait Gallery to see the Irvin Penn exhibition - he'd done a really interesting photographic portrait of the Duchess of Windsor, so I was interested to see more of his work. It was ok, but not fantastic or anything. But there was something which I loved, a new painting of Princes William and Harry. It was really great as the pose they were in was so informal, but the style of painting was still old fashioned, which I thought was good. I did worry that it might be a bit too modern looking, but it wasn't, which was nice. And plus the Gallery actually had some postcards I wanted to buy for once! :) I always look at them and usually there aren't any of the pictures I wanted to buy postcards of, but this time there were loads :) Oh - and also they had a sculpture which someone had made out of their own frozen blood, which was a bit disgusting!!

Then I went to Camden...and I think I may be able to say I'm a proper Goth now (fashion wise anyway :P) as I now have some proper goth boots :D And they're purple! :D actually quite bright purple, haha.see here! )
:D :D

I also bought a ticket to see Anathema on 21st May. There's hardly any gigs coming up it seems, I think I have a ticket to Gotham (10th April) and Anathem and thats it! Oh and we are going to Whitby - but not sure we're going to get a ticket for the main bands, as there are so many other things I want to do, including Uberbyte on the Sunday, which should be excellent :)

This weekend is going to be so great, as it's Katie's birthday party! (and we're going to see Alice in Wonderland, wooo! :D ) My costume has sort of reduced from what it was going to be (as I'm just rubbish at making things!) but it'll still be recognisable I hope! And I have to make a pass the parcel, wrap Katie's present, pack for the weekend (and next weekend!), put the finishing touches to my costume, AND write my essay...I'm going to be rushing around tomorrow night I think. Though not tonight - its the pub quiz tonight, haha - hopefully we'll win, after coming in the top 4 or 5 (and usually 2nd!) for the past few weeks!

This week has been good, I’m feeling a lot better about the OU course now. I spoke to the tutor on the phone, which was a little scary, but not as bad as I thought it would be. She seemed to think that I would get on fine with the course, as I am doing, and said it was great that I was so far ahead, which is good, as I wasn’t sure if it was almost “allowed” or not. Although I have now submitted my first essay, the day after the course was officially supposed to begin, haha. And I’ve written the introduction of the next one! So that’s all good! It’s the Rock Night tonight, not sure yet if I am going to go (as I always end up disappointed!), as I’m going to London tomorrow so want to get up early…I’ll see how I feel later though. I’ve also read two good books which week, so that’s good!

Books Twenty and Twenty One )

The next book I plan to read is Azincourt by Bernard Cornwell, which I borrowed from my grandad. After reading Pillars of the Earth and World Without End, I am really interested in reading more historical novels – although I love history I have read surprisingly few of them, apart from Phillippa Gregory, and novels set in the 19th Century, so hopefully this will be good.

Tomorrow I’m going to London to look at a photography exhibition at the Portrait Gallery. I don’t often like to pay too much for exhibitions (although I always donate money when I visit museums and galleries etc) but I think this one is £10, and that’s ok as I haven’t been to anything like that for ages and ages! Then I think I will probably go to Camden – I need to buy some things for my costume for Katie’s party next week, so hopefully I’ll be able to find them there. I am *really* looking forward to it next week, Katie always has great birthday parties, and as we’re going up on Thursday night and not coming back til Sunday, its like a mini holiday!  The next week I think I’m going to get tickets for us to see 1984 in Manchester on 19th March (as my birthday present to myself!) so that should be another great weekend!

Oh and I almost forgot – last night I listened for the first time to some Kraftwerk records which someone at work had given me – they are so amazing! I never realised how good they were, having just heard The Model and Autobahn, which I did find slightly boring…but if you listen to whole albums they’re just amazing. My favourite song so far is Trans-Europe Express, I think. Some bits of it are *so* familiar, although I’ve never heard the song before – I don’t know if its just that they influenced so many of the bands I like, or whether its been sampled in a song I know or something. I definitely want to get more of their stuff, might have to get some tomorrow 
