When You Were Young.

(music starts at about 1 min)

I seriously, seriously, SERIOUSLY love this version. It's beautiful.

And, regarding "Human"... It might've grown on me. A lot.

Very, very excited for "Day and Age" come November 25th.

Are We Human?

Or are we dancers? (Or does he sing "denser"? The Internet and my ears are not in agreement, here)

So The Killers, my alltime favorite band, has released their first single from the upcoming "Day and Age" album, which I believe is set for November 25th. And well... I don't know.

I really, really, REALLY want to like this song. I want to love it. But that doesn't seem to be happening. At first listen I felt very apathetic. I just didn't care for it. So I decided to let it get the opportunity to grow on me through putting it on repeat for about an hour and a half. I mean, I was so very dissappointed in "Sam's Town" when that first came out, and it took me half a dozen listens to the entire album to like it.

So I listened to it 21 times on repeat. And yes, I like it. I get the direction they're taking their music, with the synths of Hot Fuss and the grand feeling of Sam's Town. I can respect that.
But as much as I want to really love this track? I just don't. But I do like it, and I'll probably listen to it quite a lot until the album come out, or they release a second single from it.

It is The Killers. Which is love.

Picture by me, from his gig at Copenhagen club/venue Rust.

It seems we've finally been embraced completely by fall. I already miss summer and the carefree feeling that goes with it. But one should never underestimate the cosyness of a cup of hot chocolate while the rain is pounding away on the windows.

I can't stop listening to artists such as Emmy The Great, Lightspeed Champion, and, since two hours ago, Laura Marling. All of them has such relatable lyrics wrapped in the cutest and catchiest melodies, and God knows I love catchy and melodic. I'm completely envious of their creativity and only dream of ever being able to write like that. It's makes me adore Dev Hynes and it makes me want to BE Emmy or Laura.

And the music is just perfect for a day like today, when you're drinking tea while wrapped in blankets and large scarves.

Emmy The Great - Atoms
Laura Marling - The Captain and the Hourglass

And just because I love when he plays this live:

I got my hair cut today. Back to short and nice. And spending at least 20 minutes on it being just right each morning (I have VERY stubborn hair).

I like it so much I'm going to post a picture of it. And to warn you, I am covering my mouth with my hand in this picture. And I really have no good reason for doing so.

I've missed having an actual hairstyle.

I haven't been good at updating, I know. It's only because my life is particularly enjoyable at the moment. I like it. I like college (CBS), I like my class, and this entire new life in Cph is just what I've wanted and needed for quite a long time. Also, there are LOADS of fun stuff coming up these next few weeks. My calendar is close to completely booked with classes, school-related activities, friends, parties, concerts, and so on. It's really fabulous.

My soundtrack to this great time of my life is the new The Streets album. Surprise! It's just so incredibly positive and very different from his older stuff. I like it a lot. I don't think it tops "A Grand Don't Come For Free", which is just such an amazing album, but it's still good. Very good.

I also really liked the artwork inside the booklet. It's just pictures of these beautiful, very serene, landscapes. They fit the album perfectly. I actually took pictures of this booklet, and some of them I was sort of proud of, as they turned out very okay. But, alas. I accidentally pushed my external harddrive onto the floor today, and now all it does is make weird sounds. So. New ones are in order.

I'll piss off and leave with a teenie tiny quote from The Streets - Everything Is Borrowed.

I came to this world with nothing,
And I'll leave with nothing but love.
Everything else is just borrowed.

Saturday Night Live.

I would put a video up but it would be useless. NBC have already removed several from YouTube. So, to see it, do a search on Saturday Night Live, Sarah Palin, Hillary Clinton, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, etc. It's hilarious and spot-on.

What is this "it" I'm speaking of, you ask? Well, du'h! Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton in a Saturday Night Live sketch from yesterday.

Anyone even slightly interested in American politics and the upcoming election will get a kick out of this.

I'm actually reading a whole bunch of blogs that follow the happenings over there in the big America. Some of my favorites are Crooks and Liars and The Wonkette. Links are in the sidebar. I was even considering going over there around the beginning of November with a girl from school, doing voluntary work and just being a part of it all. Hopefully celebrate Mr. Barack Obama as the next Prez.

But, alas, I am broke. Maybe in 2012?

Anywho, I just thought I'd break this constant stream of The Streets related posts. Though it'll be back, the album is out TOMORROW and I'm picking it up right after class. Okay, right after Ben & Jerry's with a couple of the girls, which is the deal RIGHT after class. But tomorrow, fo' sho'.

I just can't get enough of the new The Streets album. And I can't wait to get my hands on an actual copy of the CD on Monday. Downloading will NEVER beat the feeling of having a new album in your hands, putting it on at home, and just listening to it all the way through without doing much other but maybe reading a magazine or drawing.

In the spirit of "Everything Is Borrowed" I've borrowed one of the songs. It's one of my current favorites along with "On The Edge Of A Cliff", "Strongest Person I Know", "Heaven For The Weather", and "The Way Of The Dodo". Heh, maybe it sort of defeats the purpose of having favorites when it ends up being 50 % of the songs.

Anyway, enjoy (I sincerely hope the link actually work, I'm rubbish as stuff like that and it's my first time.)

The Streets - I Love You More (Than You Like Me) MP3.

And on a more private note: last night was FAB. Went and saw David Peter And The Wilde Sect along with The Setting Son and it was neat. We followed it up at Rust, dancing and dancing and (for my part) talking to sleazy strange men (seriously, who brags that HIS BROTHER scored three goals in a SERIES 5 football match?)..

I'm off. Tonight is a huge party for all of the people in my year, and my line of study (language and international business communication). We're about.... 450 students? We won't be THAT many, but it's going to be mad nonetheless.

Like a Needle in a Haystack.

The Streets's new album, Everything Is Borrowed, is out on Monday. Today most of the album was posted on good ol' MySpazzzz along with a blog saying that 4 additional tracks of the album are posted on other bands' pages. So good hunting.
I've got 3/4. I like Strongest Person I Know the best so far, which is posted on The Rifles's page. (Others are on Does This Offend You, Yeah and Delphic's pages, btw). Haven't got around to listening to the ones actually posted on The Streets's own page, but I'll set time aside for doing that and only that tomorrow after class.

I haven't been this excited for ANY new album since The Killers released Sam's Town back in 2006. But I project that I'll be equally (if not more) psyched about them releasing Day and Age come November/December.

I've spent my day today in Latin American History, eating bagels with a couple girls from class, shopping a few dresses (maybe I'll post pics some other time, maybe not), and watching Gossip Girl.

party on.

tradition states that freshmen go on a get-to-know-eachother trip in their groups. these trips consist of drinking, playing games, stupid competetions, more drinking, a themeparty, even more drinking, chilling, and well, getting to know eachother.

it was wicked fun. and you get to know each other in such a peculiar way when everyone's drunk off their asses. made it a bit weird today when we finally saw eachother again. sober and all. and just being away from that place and back into reality makes it... well. wierd.

but it was a bloody amazing trip. i wanna go again. the people who are in my group are cool and the next few years are going to be awesome.

i can't wait to start the actual classes, though. the first one is this Friday. i'm excited to start that entire life. college life. university.

Now playing: The Streets - Everything Is Borrowed
