Word Play

Call me slow, but, It's only just recently dawned on me that the title "adolescent adult" could be taken the wrong way...
and going by some of the referring keywords on the stats page, it seems to have been misleading some people in search And now I've just put the word porn here (twice) It'll probably come up as a result even more and piss off even more people...lolzdeloz

Oh all right, you go:

Live Music Wiiin


So the competition win I mentioned in the last post was tickets for an "msn exclusives" event...basically a live music session/mini..sit down concert thingy with Michael Kiwanuka. I had just stumbled upon it randomly when comping one day and thought "what the hey" :P Even though I didnt really know who he was... I'd seen a clip of him singing "Home Again" one time but that was it.
Anyway, I went to that tonight. At the Union Chapel in Islington.

First off, let it be known that i Loove Free Things*

 There were free drinks, not 1. not 2. but 3 eaach. 1 of my friend's 3 :P I had my first San Miguel...because the advert is awesome :D and it was free so thought I'd try it. and having tried it, I still dont understand the hype of beer. It wasn't disgusting, I could finish it. but it wasnt particularly nice either. and I gave guiness another try some days ago and it was as disgusting as ever aaand I tried some white wine for the first time last night  but found it actually quite nice (despite my sister describing it as crappy watery cheap wine. so...maybe thats the type i prefer? lol)...aaand I had red wine last weekend which means...I can probably say, this has been the most alcoholic month of my entire life. and still never been drunk :p
I digress..
before Michael Kiwanuka came on, we had a performance by Ed Drewett. Again never heard of him before but was very pleased to discover him. I loved all the songs he performed, Beautiful voice and he had such a fun attitude :) Then I had to brace the public toilets to release all the free fluids I'd consumed..

Next was the main act, Kiwanuka. Either it's that I was tired, or its just down to how much...louder his performance seemed to Drewett's..due to more instruments...some of which were electrical..and not being able to hear the lyrics well..or that the songs seemed longer...or that his drummer was ridiculously good looking and therefore a distraction,..but I found myself zoning in and out. so I dont feel I apprecited it as much as I could have. maybe it just wasnt really my kind of music :( ..or just not.. acoustic-y enough for me :P

To end it all, they gave us goody bags! I thought it would be a bunch of crap with msn and capital one logos plastered all over them but actuaaally, twas a pretty damn decent haul! behold:

 The Earphones are just huhfikhsdgjgjc. Compared to my other ones which were originally "noise cancelling" but seem to have been getting progressively quieter, these babies are like melted heaven in my ears. Every song just sounds 10 times better at this volume. I just might stay up all night listening to music and doing lazylayingdowninbed dancing

(..yeah I may start using photos more in my posts thanks to my new little nikon friend )

*I only found out about Hackney Weekend 2012 and it's Free nature the Friday before it began. Thanks a lot Bournemouth ¬_¬

UPDATE: The earphones broke in...a ...yeah. ¬_¬

time goes slower in London

lt's taken forever but it's finally Friday. Not got anything special on today but just noticed it's been a mega slow week. Went to a free screening of "a few best men" last night. twas alright. Then saw some of the actors of kidult/adult/anuvahood chatting outside the cinema and was surprisingly ever so slightly star struck. never took myself for the type. hmmm :s :P. It was the premiere for the film "victim" i think. Aaaand, another competition win...kinda...maybe everyone who entered got the tickets... Anyway, more on that on Monday.

I forgot to mention last night, probably due to how ridiculously tired i was, (my body is having a hard time adjusting to not spending consecutive 24 hour periods stationed in my bed), but, my comping paid off again! I went one up from chocolate this time and won a digital camera :D a Nikon coolpix S3300. Just around the time i was thinking of replacing my crummy old one :) It's worth around £100 and 16mp so im pretty damn pleeeased. so its been:
.Divine chocolate hamper
.Digital Camera
and should go on as follows:
.Large Cash sum :P

Speaking of large cash sums, how are ITV able to give away SO MUCH MONEY.  It's crazy, every week, or every other week, they have giveaways on not just one but mulitple of their programmes, of cash prizes in the range of £3000 - £60,000 usually coupled with gadgets, cars and holidays. I know their a huge network or whatever but it still seems a bit much... They've clearly got money to spare...

Happy Father's Day


It's been a while
Uni is OVER (hopefully), I may end up needing to retake my exam but we'll see.
It feels amazing not having any looming deadlines, with assignments to get finished. Its like theres this yummy vast open road lying ahead now. It was a creepy worrying road before but since ive touched back down in London, and having spent last night and today with some awesome people everything just seems so positive and carefree now :D and London is just soooo ihsufgdvhgdvsahg i love it! (maybe I'll stay here for the rest of June..) or maybe i just love being back home or..i dunno. but im feeling a lot more motivated and..merry than i was in bournemouth....then again, before i came back, i did still have one last uni related thing to get done, so maybe it wasnt bournemouth dulling me down but rather that last attatchment...

As for my major project...well lets say i'm not too pleased with it so dont think i'll be posting it up anywhere online :P

In other news, hello again hayfever my old friend..
