I saw a really lovely bag today but I couldn’t justify buying it :(
On a brighter note than my last post: I had a really weird dream last night that Gareth Campesinos! had painted a picture of Irene Adler, and said that he had loosely modelled it on me.
cute boy cancelled on me again.
I’ve just spent far too long in the “labrador puppy” tag :(
Do you want to know the weirdest thing that ever happened to me? I feel like it proves just how small the world is.
In October 2010, I went to Cardiff so I could see Perfume Genius as part of Swn festival. As he wasn’t on until late, and I was on my own, I went to another venue for a bit (mainly cos it was raining) to see a few acts - none of which I had heard of. So on comes this guy with the stage name of John Mouse. Anyway, he sings and he’s good and funny and I think Steve Jones was there. I don’t know.
Anyway. A few months later, I’m sat outside my caravan (yeah, we used to caravan holiday) and this guy walks past and I said to my dad “do you know who that is?” and he says “no, but I think he’s the son-in-law of someone over there, why?” and I was like “well… this is weird, but I think I’ve seen him somewhere before. I sort of remember seeing him singing” so my dad was like “well just ask him” and of course I am far too shy to do that. So my dad just kinda calls out to him and asks. And the guy goes “er, yeah…” and looks at us like we’re absolute morons. I pipe up with “I saw you at Swn festival” and yeah. Very weird.
It turns out he’s actually quite good friends with the Los Campesinos! guys, as the next time I saw him, he was supporting them at a Cardiff gig. (after terrifying me in the street by running up to me and shouting “boo” at me)
And since then, I’ve seen him again in Swansea with a band called Strange News From Another Star who I have also seen support Los Camp!
Now he’s releasing his fourth album which features Gareth Campesinos!
Small world, innit.
