Now this is really great!

It might be old news to you, but I was excited to hear that the Grammy prize for Best Album went to Arcade Fire's the Suburbs.

So excited that I started to dance around, in fact.

I mean, I was leafing through a magazine and there was a section about celebrities or whatever, mentioning how Lady Gaga dressed in the event and saying that she got the Best Pop Album prize, but nor her nor any of the others "big names" got the Best Album because it went to an indie rock Canadian band... Arcade Fire.

GUYS, I CAN'T EVEN -- This band is my favourite the last few months and they have beautiful, brilliant music and this just made me so happy!


Now I will proceed to linking you some of my favourite songs by Arcade Fire. Just because.

Crown of Love
Wake Up
Neighbourhood #1 (Tunnels)
Une Annee Sans Lumiere
Ocean of Noise
(Antichrist Television Blues)
The Suburbs
Modern Man
City With No Children
Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)

(Sometime I will need to stop tagging almost everything I write as "randomness")

That's how Sundays should be.

I love the sun.
I love the warmth and the light and the colour.
I like walking.
I love happy, old-fashioned music.
I like to talk and listen.
I love to look at paintings.
I love to think.

I love days like this.

(I also like reading people's blog posts and writing comments. Just thought you should know)

My Unpopular Opinions

( I saw this on Tumblr and I thought... why not? Since I don't have a Tumblr account... Here you go, Blogger.)

I can't really get why video games are supposed to be exciting. I always get bored.

I don't think happy endings are cheap or always bad - I just like them with a twist.

I haven't read any "classic" comics - DC, Marvel, etc. I'm not interested in super heroes - I started with Disney stories and then went directly to artsy, modern stuff.

I hate it when conversations turn pervy.

I also don't understand why sex is still a taboo, why thinking it is normal is either pervy or slutty and I don't have problems talking seriously about it.

I don't think communism = fascism. I strongly disagree.

I don't like painted nails. I have only recently started to think they're okay.

Dorky guys/girls are awesome.

I don't get why tomboyish/non-mainstream/nerdy girls shouldn't be attractive.

I try to think smoking doesn't make you cool... However, I can't resist believing that it does look so damn cool. (not a smoker, though)


(Also the suffragettes were awesome.)

Dead languages are also awesome.

(Feel free to do this yourself, it's great)

'Tis a quick post

This thing. Read it. Read iiiiit. It's one of my favourite webcomics! Very nice art, lovely dialogue, and it's oh-so-very-dorky. (I mean, it's about a 18th century university and a dorky guy and an awesome librarian lady and it has mystery!) God, my love for all things dorky.

Also Dylan Meconis is seriously brilliant.

(Yes. I will eventually make a post that doesn't have to do with comics and/or my enormous dorkiness and be highly poetic and touching. Yeah. Eventually.)
