I’m listening to that “Something Left Behind” Transit record in Aaron’s room right now. I think I overlooked this record greatly for reasons that are just not clear to me right now. Aaron keeps mocking Joe Boynton’s voice, it was funny at first. Indoor Voices is getting me touching me in a profound way at the moment. There is so much clarity (musically and lyrically) on this record, it is so pleasing to my ears right now.
It feels good to be in Reading with one of my closest friends. The journey from Northampton was shorter than how I remembered it during my last visit. I am happy to say that I am in luxury compared to my last visit when I unfortunately had to endure a constant freezing room in his hall of residence.
My voice is still scratchy from last night, I remember dancing to Bound 2 with some skater guys in Eviscera. I also remember hearing “You’re lucky to be black” and “Is that ‘tache for Movember?” I still don’t understand the big deal around my moustache. I have said this again just now to Aaron as he is sitting on his bed watching Kenan and Kel. It’s funny how you can grow older but still find a remnant of your younger self in your old friends. It is quite a surreal delight sometimes, not regressive in anyway but more of a reminder of foundation as an individual.
I don’t have any expectations for tonight other than hopefully hearing Craig David at the SU and as a result pogoing furiously on the dancefloor. I still think it’s odd how I am not conscious of my dancing as I was before. There something about hearing people compliment you on somethign that makes you more conscious of ho you do it in the future.
I was also talking to Steven U (who is listed as my Son on Facebook) on facebook this morning who kindly sent me this on facebook after stumbling upon this revelation on his Itunes page
On this Itunes window An All For Amends song “I’ve Had My Fair Share of Imaginary Enemies” his at the top of his most played. Surreal, no one has ever really expressed admiration for All For Amends like this before, it has definitely made my day. On top of that he said some sweet words about my lyrics on some new All For Amends songs (which will surface eventually) which couldn’t have made me happier. I definitely have more gratitude towards him.
