So this is my first blog, I’m hoping that my thoughts, feelings and opinions (word vomit) are appreciated by the good people who will read this… Please don’t judge me too harshly on anything I write here!
I found it very difficult coming up with a name for my blog, it’s not easy right?! I settled on a random lyric from a Mystery Jets song, of which I much prefer the Florence + The Machine cover version, which I have linked in this blog post. I thought perhaps you could have a listen to it, if you haven’t already, and form your own opinion (and obviously to fill this blog out a bit, I don’t care what anyone says the cover version is awesome).
One thing I noticed about the youtube video that the person created is that it contains a still from one of my favourite movies of all time, (500) Days Of Summer. Right there. At the beginning. Oh yes, that film is brilliant at portraying what it’s like for someone to get their heart stomped on. I think I enjoyed it so much due to the fact I can relate to it, unlike the Hollywood fairytale ending style films that get churned out these days… Who really ends up finding their soulmate at the age of about 19 anyway? It’s just dangerous, promoting all these unrealistic aspirations as more than a fantasy… To sum it up, I use a quote from Blair Waldorf of Gossip Girl, “Fairytales end where they do for a reason”.
I suppose that’s my first entry over then, hopefully there’ll be someone out there who finds my haphazard balderdash (ha) interesting enough to read… If not I’ll just keep writing to no one.
Oh and the title, babelfish it…
