Massive thanks to all those comments and faves that I got after my second DD -
'The Tackle'. Unfortunately I'm so far behind, I can't promise to answer all the 382 faves and watches that are now lying in my inbox, but it is appreciated!


Got a bit annoyed with looking at the same journal all the time. I haven't been around a whole lot because of getting caught up with uni work - and haven't taken many photos since One World Week a month or so ago (I think). Needless to say I've been making it up with darkroom time, and I'm loving the hours I've been spending trying to print out a lot of the negatives I got from Paris by hand.

Have a song:

The beats, yeah, they were coming out the speakers
And were winding up straight in your sneakers.
And I'm dancing like every song who spends his bizzle
Like all my dance heroes would if they existed.

And it's sad that you think that they're all just scenesters
(And even if we were it's not the scene you're thinking of)
To taking props from like these boy band fashions
All crop tops and testosterone passion.

If there's one thing that I could never confess,
It's that I can't dance a single step.

It's you!
It's me!
And there's dancing!

Not sure if you mind if I dance with you,
But I don't think right now that you care about anything at all.
And oh, if only there were clothes on the floor,
I'd feel for certain I was bedroom dancing.
And it's all flailing limbs at the front line.
Every single one of us is twisted by design
And dispatches from the back of my mind
Say as long as we're here everything is alright.

If there's one thing that I could never confess,
It's that I can't dance a single step.

It's you!
It's me!
And there's dancing!

And i always get confused
because in supermarkets they turn the lights off when they want you to leave, but in discos they turn them on,
and it's always sad to go, but it's never that sad,
because there's only certain places you're guaranteed of getting a hug when you go.
and on the way home, it seems like a good idea to go paddle in the fountain, and that's because it IS a good idea
and it's like we're all like Rousseau depicts man in the state of nature
we're undeveloped, we're ignorant, we're stupid, but we're happy.
