Bon Fucking IVER.

Well, literally some things have occurred since I last 'blogged', I'll try and string them together into some sort of prose. First of all, Bon Iver (manned by Justin Vernon) have unveiled their new masterpiece. It's obviously amazing. But it wasn't recorded in a hut. Which is a shame.
In other news, I have finished school. Forever. Which is just mental.

I'm reading Derren Brown's Tricks of the Mind, and I'm finding it thoroughly entertaining. In particular, I can happily relate to his use of overly verbose lexis, for example whilst many may opt to use the phrase 'never judge a book by its cover', Derren chooses the much more elegant phrasing of:
"Never one to arrive at an acumen regarding a set of printed pages bound along one side, based purely upon my discernment of its sheathing."

Regarding The Blokes, we are currently in the process of recording Soma, meanwhile Reptilia is sitting on the back burner, until we can all play it (until I can play it...)

Oh and my MacBook Pro has finally broken and refuses to turn on; if it was a person it would say something like:

Oh hi there!
Would you like to see my BIOS, just press my buttons if you would ;)
Sorry there seems to be a problem with Windows (how very odd), would 
you like to start Windows in 'safe mode'?
No? Okay, here we go then..
I'm loading windows for you, watch me go!
Look at my loading bar racing away, can you count how many times it 
loads?
OH FUCK! OH FUCK! OH FUCK!
THERE'S BEEN A PROBLEM, LOOK AT ME, I'VE TURNED ALL BLUE!!!!
HELP ME! HELP ME! HELP HELP HELP HELP!!!
*DIES*

 So yeah, I'll have to get another of those sometime. 

 I think there was one more thing... Ummm... What was it?...
