After seeing this beautiful picture ofย Casey

… I developed the most intense case of sunglasses envy I have ever experienced. I just had to make it my mission to find a pair of lovely sunglasses, a task which I accomplished when I went to Stratford! There’s the most gorgeous shop there called Aspire which sells all sorts of adorable clothes and accessories and amongst all the treasures I found these…

The glasses themselves were ยฃ9.95 and the case was about ยฃ8 I think. And in my own little tribute to Casey, here is my picture…

And here’s a photograph of my hair in more detail. It’s just a pompadour with a high ponytail, and if I could have been bothered my rosie scarf would have looked nice tied around the ponytail. It’s a little blurry though I’m sorry.

In other news; Mr. B the Gentleman Rhymer.

Never have I seen a moustache of such splendour. And his banjolele is something else altogether.

He sounds sort of like a mixture between Eric Birling out of An Inspector Calls and Stewie Griffin… in a good way. A great way ๐Ÿ˜€

I rather recommend Hail the Chap and Chap-Hop History, but really Mr. B is great in all of his songs. If a bit of a bally nincompoop at times ๐Ÿ™‚

Bye bye,

I’m going to lose weight. I’ not a major fatarse or anything like that, but everybody wants to be a bit thinner, don’t they? A the moment I’m eleven stone something (I can’t remember exactly and I can’t be arsed weighing myself) and am in the “at risk of overweight” bracket. So I’m not massive, but not entirely healthy either.

This bad boy is helping me.

I’m trying to do about an hour on the wii every day, made up of 30 minutes step, 10 minutes jog, 10 minutes boxing and then whatever I feel like for another 10 minutes. I would put a photo of me doing some exercise on here, but it might scare you all ๐Ÿ™‚

The best thing about it is that I CAN WATCH DVDS WHILST I DO THE STEP AND JOGGING!! Haha, so far I’ve watched all three series of the League of Gentlemen, their Apocalypse film, Requiem for a Dream, Monster, Goodbye Lenin, Sia’s TV is my Parent… IT’S SO AWESOME!! Only problem is that if I watch a music DVD, then I end up stepping out of time. But never mind.

I won’t be blogging again for a while because I’m going to Stratford for four days and then I have eleven GCSE exams to take :/

Ta ta,

My new favourite style and genre of music. It’s really just rockabilly except scarier. For example, why wear a plain hair bow when you can put a spider on it?

Psychobilly clothing has a lot of “horror” elements to it, and it does work well, actually. Usually the clothing is in blacks or reds while rockabillies wear blues, reds, whites and so on.

Another difference between psychobilly and rockabilly is the hair; the styles are the same but psychobillies often dye their hair very bright, unnatural colours. This isn’t really neceassary, but a lot of psychobillies to it to distinguish themselves from the rockabilly culture. The styles are almost always the same, though.

Psychobilly music also is really just rockabilly but creepier.

Rockabilly = songs about cars and girls.

Psychobilly = songs about horror, violence, and wild sex in a hearse. No joke.

Nekromantix, Horrorpops, Reverend Horton Heat etc.

So yes, as you have probably gathered, I like psychobilly. A lot.

Bye bye,
