New Nine Inch Nails Album

Posted by Cheshire Cat , in Music May 28 2013 · 45 views

Trent Reznor has just revealed that he's secretly been working on a new Nine Inch Nails album for the past year, which is now finished and will be released later this year.
To say I'm very excited is an understatement.

Gonna See Paradise Lost Again

Posted by Cheshire Cat , in Music May 24 2013 · 51 views

Paradise Lost are celebrating their 25th anniversary this year and are doing some special shows in October and November, with support from Lacuna Coil and a special guest that hasn't been announced yet.
Went ahead and got myself a ticket for the London show in November. Really looking forward to it ^_^
 
It's also a reminder of how quickly time goes by. It doesn't seem that long ago that they were celebrating their 20th anniversary with the release of a demo compilation, which I have sitting on my desk right here, and yet it was almost five years ago.
Why does that make me feel so old, even though I'm so young?

Exam Went Fairly Well

Posted by Cheshire Cat , in Education, Daily Life May 23 2013 · 53 views

So the exam went much better than I thought it would. The first two questions were very nice and easy, but kind of fell apart at the third one, partly due to lack of time, partly because it wasn't a very nice question.
But hey, it was a choice of three questions out of seven, so at least I wasn't stuck with the other four, which were pretty horrible.
 
Having a bit of free time, got myself a new headset and a new pair of earphones, since my old ones broke. It always feels strange switching to a new headset because I get so used to how the old one sounds.
Also picked up a couple of books: The Revolution of Everyday Life by Raoul Vaneigem, having previously read a library copy, and Selected Poems 1947-1995 by Allen Ginsberg, having enjoyed what I've read of his work.

First Exam Tomorrow

Posted by Cheshire Cat , in Education May 22 2013 · 62 views

Well, I have my exam in Criminal Law at 10 tomorrow.
Got to say, I'm pretty nervous, although I am looking forward to getting it out of the way.

Some More Playing Cards

Posted by Cheshire Cat , May 16 2013 · 365 views

I probably won't start collecting playing cards again, but I had to order a few decks that looked nice. These arrived today:

The Karnival Inferno deck. The colours are a bit bright, but I do like them.

All Assignments Done

Posted by Cheshire Cat , in Daily Life, Education May 16 2013 · 41 views

Well, after handing in 3300 words worth of law coursework on Tuesday and doing my mooting assignment earlier this morning, I now have nothing but exams to look forward to.
The moot went fairly well, although having went with a white shirt and a red tie I resembled Agent 47 from the Hitman series more than I intended (although I do have hair of course). Not necessarily a bad thing, but I was going for more of a lawyer look rather than a professional assassin look.
It has been a very busy month and will continue to be so with exams on the 23rd and the 30th, the first of which I'm not feeling too good about. I do have a week to fix that though, so hopefully my first year of university will turn out alright.

Some Very Nice Playing Cards

Posted by Cheshire Cat , May 08 2013 · 71 views

These have been released to celebrate the return of the metal band earthtone9 and their new album IV, and since I used to collect playing cards back when I still did a lot of sleight of hand, I figured I might as well pick them up.

They are very nice and a fine addition to my collection. Excuse the not-so-great picture though, I seem to have forgotten how to use my camera.
Now I'm actually considering starting to collect interesting decks of cards again.
 
And I should also probably mention that earthtone9 released a 16 track 'best of' compilation as a free download if anyone is interested in them. I can't really tag them with a genre, but I've heard them called progressive, alternative and post-metal, so there's that.

Caffeine Addiction?

Posted by Cheshire Cat , in Daily Life May 04 2013 · 42 views

So, I went into the kitchen intending to get myself a cup of mint green tea, daydreaming as I did so, and everything seemed fine in the moment. However, it was only upon returning to my room and taking a sip of said tea when I noticed that it tasted a bit odd, at which point I came to the realisation that what I have actually made was, in fact, a cup of coffee.
I am not sure how I went through the whole process without it even occurring to me that I was making an entirely different drink, which I keep on an entirely different shelf and consume from an entirely different mug.
It seems that I either have a caffeine problem or really need to get some sleep for once. Probably both.
 
And yes, I have nothing else noteworthy to blog about, in case you're wondering.
Mostly just trying to finish off my coursework and prepare for the two exams at the end of the month, which have me a bit worried.
It's hard to believe that my first year of university is already almost over.

Why I Dislike Ordering CDs From The US

Posted by Cheshire Cat , in Music Apr 19 2013 · 119 views

These bloody stickers on the top of the case.

I don't know if it's just me, but I can never take them off without them tearing and they always leave marks on the case.
It's becoming my biggest pet peeve in terms of CDs. I mean, why are they even there, other than to be annoying? The bar code is already on the back of the CD, and new CDs are wrapped anyway :shrugs:

Back From Another Comedy Show

Posted by Cheshire Cat , Apr 18 2013 · 62 views

So, I went to see three Canadian comedians - Stewart Francis, Craig Campbell and Glenn Wool - on their The Lumberjacks tour tonight.
Stewart Francis has been one of my favourite comedians for quite some time now, so it was great to finally see him live, and the other two were brilliant as well. Haven't laughed that much in a long time.
It was just their second show of the tour, which meant that there were still some imperfections and they were still trying some new stuff out, which only made the show all the better. Also, as it was a fairly small venue, it felt more personal which is always great ^_^
 
 
On another note, I've started buying more albums than I should again. I can't help it, something about a music CD just draws me in and doesn't let go until I've bought it. Especially those fancy limited/special/deluxe/whatever editions...
