If only I had wings or a jet pack…
Not sure how people reply to answers in a post, so thanks to 22yearsatthetapend and giraffepoliceforce for answering my Netflix query. Definitely sounds like it’s worth the process of getting the US version.
Okay, so I feel like I’m mildly cheating on LoveFilm by signing up for Netflix, but it’s only like 8 days until new Arrested Development and it was bound to happen.
Also, I think I can justify my infidelity because it turns out Netlix has It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and I can probably start on Breaking Bad seeing as everyone thinks it’s terrific.
Apparently the internet claims that it is easy (and legal) to gain access to the US version of Netflix, which has double the selection available on the UK version. I’m just wondering if it’s worth the (relatively simple looking) effort? Like, I would probably do it if it has some Big Bang Theory or Community (season 3) or Parks and Recreation, also maybe Mad Men because I’ve recently realised that I’ve forgotten just about everything up to the current season…anyone know?
“Supposedly it was a wise, wise man
Who said it’s better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.”
I’m pretty certain that wise man was Josh himself. Or certainly he’s used similar lines in previous songs (“I’d rather be the one who loves than to be loved and never even know”)
I think this is still my favourite album of the year so far, and his gig in July is my most anticipated, despite having Josh Rouse, Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen before then. I’ve only ever seen him live once, and even then that was only supporting Ray LaMontagne.
A thing of beauty is a joy forever
Do You Remember The First Time, Pulp live at T in the Park 2011
I often think that if there was one night I could re-live it would be this one. Pulp returning to T in the Park for the first time since 199-whenever and followed on the main stage by Foo Fighters.
Looking at the lineups at T in the two years since I’m pretty tempted to say that 2011 was the last great T in the Park.
Ron Swanson and a puppy.
Parks and Recreation has very quickly become one of my favourite shows, and Ron Swanson is pretty much the reason.
I said won’t you tell me where you been?
You put a finger to my lips and then you kissed me once and once again
The crickets all leapt up and met the moon with a standing ovation
Right Moves, Josh Ritter
This is one of my favourite lyrics.
All booked up for Edinburgh next week, which is more organised than I’ve been for recent trips.
I always get a little more excited for gigs in Edinburgh, despite it not being as fine a city for music as Glasgow. I think it’s because I tend to only get there once or twice a year as opposed to every other month in Glasgow (largely because Glasgow’s greater diversity of venues attracts more/better artists, I’d imagine) that it feels a bit more special.
Next week I’ll be able to discover a new venue, at the Pleasance Theatre, and I’ve only ever seen Josh Rouse perform once before so it’s gonna be nice to experience him again.
There many better sights than walking back from a gig in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle and the Scott Monument. It’s like being in Lord of the Rings.
