So yeah, a recent hard drive error led to 20 gigs of music, almost all of my photos and some precious Photoshop artwork being erased. Boo.

Whats even more rubbish is it deleted most of the music that I actually listen to. However this has led me to actually listening to a lot of the stuff I downloaded on a whim and never had the time/inclination to listen to, until now. Circumstance is introducing me to some gems I never realised I had.

Now, I hate stereotypes as much as the next person but if it hadn't been for flouncy scarf-wearing indie types (the types who reckon Bright Eyes is actually anything other than moping depressive droll) raving about how My Vitriol "filled the void left by Esoteric Handbag Sandwich" (or other such obscure indie bands I've never heard of) I would have been more inclined to give them a proper listen. 'Always your way' was a cracker and 'Grounded' was so-so (though the video was cool) then they kinda disappeared for many a year, and after a few occassions of seeing their album and reminding myself that I should buy it sometime they slipped from memory. Which is a shame cos they're actually pretty darn decent.

In other news I have a new otter. He still needs a suitably Viking name like Vårklaad, but he is filled with rice and makes a half-decent shaker.

I need a hobby. A proper one.

    Emo brats are the worst, these aren't those who listen to Emo and enjoy it for it's musical content.

    No these are those special people who decide that to enjoy a genre of music you must ignore all others, dress in the fashion as dictated by NME etc, and seem to believe that the only people who are Emo are the ones who are experiencing problems.
    Music is a celebration of life, stop buying into an image you muppets!

    I keep telling you Stan! It's a good stable Viking name

  2. Hey, screw you man. "Esoteric Handbag Sandwich" were the original band, man, they play MUSIC. Like… with their instruments. And their souls. Only "Flaming Looroll" and "Partially Digested" could ever take their place.

    I'm gonna go write my shopping list with a knife into my arm. They'll all be sorry!

    man your nuts…..but it makes me laugh in the inner most part of my core…… i can't belive you have (multiple!) ummm.. fake?… otters to which you give viking names… thats amazingly cool… i have to agree with milly though; i hope you went with Stan.
    note :i also agree with her thoughts on 'emoish' people grr they irritate me but not to an emotionally painful state, just slightly.
