So series 4 of skins starts tonight. I have mixed feelings on the show, mainly because I live in Bristol and a lot of the cast are people who I've known or run into. Taking it at face value though it is a great show. Although, the first cast will always be my skins cast.
I mean look how moodily series 2 was billed:
& they pretty much stuck with the dull grey lighting throughout.
This series is meant to be more upbeat but I don't know. There's something I just don't really like about most of the characters in season 3 & 4. I don't believe it.
Oh well they know I'll still watch it whatever & I guess that's all that matters.
Who do you prefer? Cast 1 or 2?
This morning I leisurely made a cup of coffee and started reading G2 over my breakfast. A nice story about sex addiction & then something that made me extremely angry for just 9.30 in the morning.
This article by Tanya Gold basically blames fashion for the death of a 16 year old because she was wearing heels when she tripped and fell into the path of an oncoming train. She goes on to talk about how fashion has continued to blite her life...basically.
I was moved to so much anger that I went on the guardian website and created a profile just so I could comment on her article. This is what I wrote:
Leading one DrMarcusBrody to comment:
I am extremely flattered and amazed at how many people quoted me and agreed with what I said but I don't think it's right that people like Tanya Gold should be allowed to lead people into thinking that the fashion industry is some kind of monster leading us to buy things that don't flatter us or make us look ugly. If she has her issues that's up to her.
Please comment if the article angers you as much as it did me.
It's important that people like this shouldn't get away with spouted their personal prejudices in a paper that otherwise speaks a lot of a-hem 'middle-class' sense.
Oh & here's some more lovely pictures so it's not one of those posts.
Stumbled across this lovely Swedish online store Modekungen & felt the need to share these awesome jumpers. Although I can only dream of the day I can afford anything on the website...
Have been seeking the perfect boots to act in opposition with my DMs. I've actually found them in Office here but I feel a bit reluctant to pay £95 for shoes that my friend wore once too the beach & basically ruined (although I like the way they are now)
Agh why does it always come down to money?
i went to Bath with my mother and my jesus
Horror-esque lighting issues
I got a lovely dress from Gap & a HUGE cardigan from Monsoon. That's what's good about going shopping with the mother, so many different shops open up.
Also got a couple of books from 'The List' in Oxfam. 'The List' being the thing that now dictates any music or books that I buy. Sounds ominous but it is rather epic.
How was your day?
(thinking of adding one of these 'word buttons' to the bottom of all my posts from now on, thoughts?)
I've just re-discovered my mum's old copy of Watchwords by Roger McGough with this amazing 60s/70s psychedelic cover that i could stare at for a very long time... (this is not the cover, scanner broken dammit)
by Roger McGough
Discretion is the better part of Valerie
though all of her is nice
lips as warm as strawberries
eyes as cold as ice
the very best of everything
only will suffice
not for her potatoes
or puddings made of rice
Not for her potatoes
or puddings made of rice
she takes carbohydrates
like God takes advice
a surfeit of ambition
is her particular vice
Valerie fondles lovers
like a mousetrap fondles mice
And though in the morning
she may whisper: 'it was nice'
you can tell my her demeanor
that she keeps her love on ice
but you've lost your hardened heart
now you'll have to pay the price
for she'll kiss you on the memory
and vanish in a thrice
Valerie is corruptible
but known to be discreet
Valerie rides a silver cloud
where once she walked the street
Even though I've also just started reading the biography of Paul Dirac (that's him above)
He's my favorite physicist as he wrote the equation for anti matter, the books pretty good, highly recommended even if your not into physics and all that...
Also, I'm thinking of getting my septum piercing re-done (it closed over over summer)
Images to back this idea up as a good one:
What bands are good at the moment?
& trying to find an Eef Barzelay album
Oh & one more thing, started my exams today with maths
Good luck to everyone else who has exams too!
Now i'm going to sit in my nice warm room with my mental cat, drink mulled cider and read all the new magazines i just bought myself to say well done for completing one exam. i need some time alone, everything is falling apart... anywho...
wore this for new years eve. had a big surprise when a masked stranger began
kissing me at midnight...but it all ended well when masked stranger turned out
to be my boyfriend who had picked a fight the week before & said he wasn't
coming down just so i would be extra shocked. crafty...
tried this playsuit on in my size a couple of months ago but wasn't working
due to my unusually long body... found it last week in the sales, two sizes
too big but only £10! my friend said she would kill me if i didn't get it so, i did.
Yeah, you don't mess with Heidi.
well is there something that you like about her?
yes. i like the way her body bends in half.
& is there something that you love about her?
no. man if she's playing hard to get i'm out the door.
The Virgins - one week of danger
Also have loads of new jewelry to share, here's a sneak close up
