4 out of the previously 15 rolls of undeveloped film are now developed and can be published for your viewing pleasure. I must admit I haven't quite mastered the expert techniques of analog photography. I've been so comfortable with my SLR's and now I can't look at the pictures, take new ones and delete the bad ones before I have to pay to get them developed, but that's also the beauty with analog cameras I suppose.
I will probably post most of them up on our tumblr under this is what we are, also a small reminder that you can also find our lovely Fan on tumblr now! Be sure to listen to that love cover she did, her voice is lovely which I already knew but this was a good reminder.
I must say sometimes I think I was born in the wrong decade (a thought shared with others I believe), come on the noughties what did that give me? oh yeah 90's boots, Nevermind with Nirvana and Loveless with My Bloody Valentine. But where was I when you could twist your way out of trouble "like we did last summer" or like we're trying to do on the previous post and the biggest event in your life was seeing The Beatles? I know I shouldn't sulk about it and our time is pretty awesome but sometimes you can't help but to find yourself in a decade blues.
On completely other 2012 notes, I'm still mildly obsessed with Grimes but I'm also listening a lot to a band called New Look. I love how they are both contributing with vocals and have this very simple and easy going music to complete the whole thing. Their kind of like a more pop-electronic The xx, can I say that or is it stretching it a bit?
"Don't attempt the "Jazz-Step" in public until you have thoroughly
mastered it in private. It is apt to look ungainly and ridiculous when
badly done, but you can attain to grace with practice, and it will be
worth the trouble."
Juvenile rantingsPosted by JD Fri, January 06, 2012 07:08:26 The new year (another one?!?! the years just keep coming, madness!!!) is here and it's time to pick up the old blogging again. 2012 what might you have in store for us. How's 2012 so far?
This year like last year I make about £80 a week. My rent alone is £410 a month. That, for anyone who failed maths, does not add up. With my savings being more or less gone, this year rather than getting another job I felt like taking a walk on the wild side and live on the edge. So far this month I have been living solely on noodles and Campbell's mushroom soup. Not because it is so tasty I can't resist but because it is the only thing I can afford. Tell a lie, the other day I had 100g euro shopper chocolate, it was 50p but I thought I was worth it.
Eventually (after three days) desperation took hold and I went berserk in the kitchen looking for something to eat and found an old tin with kidney beans that someone left behind in the cupboard. Starving as I was I still managed to remain sensible enough to look at the use by date before opening it. July 2012 it said and I loudly said "no, no, no, no, no" and threw it back in the cupboard angry and disappointed. 3 hours later I realized that 2012 isn't over yet, It just began but it has been talked about so much that I felt like it was already in the past. Didn't eat the beans though, saving them for truly desperate days.
Other than that I'm still at Koko, quite enjoying it these days although I do hate it from time to time. It is an unfair place but it sucks you in. Even though people treat you like shit occasionally most of the people working there are pretty fun. Nah, I like it I can't lie and I do like almost everyone working there. The number of bands I've seen lately is insane, 2-3 bands every day, some really good ones some unbelievably shit. It is immense. Haha maybe not immense but we've had some pretty fabulous bands lately.
What else is new? As much as I love all of London I have now decided what my part is and the winner was North London! I live off Holloway Road now, I'm on the Northern Line three stops from work, or a 40 min walk. Funny how I never thought that I would settle for one part of London but here I am, going all in north. Kingston and South West London will always be home too though, it's just too far so it's that and north!
Also I plan on moving back to Stockholm as soon as possible and moving in with the Hapster (Gibs)! I'm leaving home for home and I'm not sure if I will survive not being in the UK but I must try. Time to get the stone rolling in order to become a rolling stone. Which is not in anyway my purpose with moving and while we're on the topic I would much rather be a Beatle, not that I don't love the stones I do but I just love the Beatles a little bit more. Always have always will do. I should probably mention that our obsession with the Beatles is getting worse and worse, the Beatlemania has grown out of proportion (it will ever bite the dust). Last night the Hapster and I had a 4 hour long skype conversation exclusively about the boys, their kids and their girlfriends.
So it's a new year, we can start fresh and lay a new path. We know we've neglected this blog for far too long now and given false promises of a move but not sticked to our commitment. We're very sorry about this and hope to see a big change for 2012, starting with this blog post which will be the first for this year!
I can't express the excitement I feel for 2012, countless things will change, be created and done. In my new years resolutions this blog has a high priority and our thoughts of a move and new beginning for the blog is still in our thoughts. To the readers we may have lost because of our lack of consistency and the readers we hopefully will gain welcome to a year where you'll see and hear a lot more from A Little Sincerity.
If you didn't know (or just need a little reminder) we've concurred some more of the digital world and opened up a Tumblr account. It's basically a mood/inspiration-board for us where we reblog pictures, gifs and quotes that catches an extra glimpse in our eye. Surprisingly enough we update it daily which is a miracle considering our past with consistency, so if you don't get anything from our blog you can quench your thirst by following us on Tumblr. The Tumblr will also work as place for us to upload photos we've taken of each other, friends, bands and other random shit until we get a new place for our blog (which won't send threatening emails about closing us down because we've got to much photos). You can find those photos easy just by clicking on the "This is what we are" link under the head on the first page of our tumblr.
This is all for now folks,
I'll leave you with the lovely Grimes that recently signed to 4AD and will be releasing a new LP "Visions" on February 21.
