“It is cruel, you know, that music should be so beautiful. It has the beauty of loneliness and of pain: of strength and freedom. The beauty of disappointment and never-satisfied love. The cruel beauty of nature, and everlasting beauty of monotony.” -Benjamin Britten
For all intensive purposes online my name is Lil. I am a 20 year old college student who spends to much of her time wallowing in the realm of cell and microbiology. Music is my pacifier my life line, but I am currently frustrated with what the radio is trying to pass off as good tunage. So the purpose of this blog it to try to expose the world to that other side of music; now don't get me wrong I do love myself a bit of J.beebs or T.swizzle now and then, but their is this whole realm of glorious sounds which the world needs to be exposed to.
So nerd out moment: Chris Hadfield returns home today, upon hering tthis my mind drifted to Shiny Toy Guns revamp of David Bowie’s 2001 a Space Oddity. Both songs are classic but STG’s pop twist on the classic which incorporates lyrics/references from Bowie’s original is perfect for a Monday wake up. Happy Mondallies remember you’re lattes.
You can take it anyway you want it comes and goes….
Do you ever feel like your living a dream, that things just feel to right? Almost so good that something is wrong. My mother always warned me that if something seemed to good to be true it likely was. As heavy hours pass by I find myself unwilling to breathe, I’ve been here before and I’ve taken in all for granted. But when regular life feels like a dream, do we embrace the slumber or brace for our nightmare. Does optimism still exist? Or are we all just one breath away from our fears?

This is the way it ends
Don’t tell me it’s meaningless
There’ll be no compromise
We fall in we too shall rise
Last days of exams….. stressed, tired, annoyed, apathetic. Oh I’m just a good old box of fun this morning.
(only 8 more hours till freedom; someone come save me)
