Sunshine! · New Stitch phone case · Wagamama's is my favourite
Now I can watch Eddie whenever I damn well please · Fell in love with that guy off of Scream
Best gig. A$AP Rocky took his shirt off too. ·  #glasto2013

I watched Scream for the first time this month after I had finished my 'big worry' exams to unwind (although I suppose a horror probably isn't the most calming of films) and I think it's a new fave. Judge me. The only reasons being:
a) I love any 90's film
b)I fell in love with Billy Loomis. Trust me to go for the one who ends up being the crazed psycho killer.

This month was also rather musical, towards the end anyways. As you know, I saw A$AP Rocky and had an absolute blast. It was definitely one of my favourite gigs. I also went to my first festival last weekend. Granted, it was Glastonbudget as opposed to Glastonbury but it was so much fun nonetheless. It was a tribute festival so I got to see acts paying homage to the likes of Queen (front row, that's right), Arctic Monkeys, Kings Of Leon and The Killers. Oh, and I danced to a spot of Chiquittita by ABBA whilst I was highly intoxicated.

I have to say that The Killers, or rather 'The Fillers' was my favourite. Unlike Arctic Monkeys and Kings Of Leon, I wasn't involved in the mosh pit (NOTE: NEVER wear flip flops in a mosh pit, you will suffer). I used to listen to Day & Age all the time so a few memories came back when they played Dustland Fairytale. It was dark too and so the arena was just electric.

Overall, the weekend was fabulous. With a fairground, sunshine and mine and my friend Meghan's endless man hunt added to the mix, it couldn't get much better. I even got a tan / burn / my skin is now peeling. Roll on Boardmasters!

A$AP Rocky

I went to see A$AP Rocky on Thursday evening and it was like all of my dreams came true.
Although we were waiting about an hour between the opening act and actual Lord Flacko, it was totally worth it. Opening with 'Suddenly' he began by rapping from off stage but as the beat dropped, the lights brightened, A$AP appeared and we went bat shit crazy. I'm not kidding, the continous mosh pit that never ceased during the show was mental. After the first few tracks me and my friend had grasped the basic survival techniques to be successful in a crowd of moshers and had managed to weave our way towards the front (you basically have to rotate around the circle they form). By this time everyone was a sweaty mess but we didn't even care. A$AP Rocky had taken off his top at this point too so I all I was bothered about was getting a closer look at the glowing angel before me.

He rapped songs from the latest album, Long Live A$AP, as well as taking it back a few with tracks such as Peso and Hands On The Wheel from the previous album. I'd say that Wild For The Night was the track that got everyone hyped the most but the audience (especially me and Rosie) were going mental throughout, whichever song came on. He also kept calling us all 'family' and got involved in passing out water to our dehydrated selves, which was nice of him.

I'm definitely getting tickets next time he's in town and I'm going to wait all day if I have to just to be at the front. Yahurrrr. Look at how live Wild For The Night was (I was literally just to the left of this guy, right in the middle of the crowd):

Young and Beautiful

This is just so damn wonderful. Actual orchestral music, with actual instruments. These days everybody wants to be a singer but no one wants to play an instrument so this is fantastico. I haven't seen Baz Luhrmann's film yet but if the soundtrack is anything to go by it will be quite the treat.
