I think your whole idea of this journal thing is kind of jumping the gun, but I do wish you good luck in this venture.

I'm not sure how it sounds, I couldn't hear it. Probably funnier watching it. Martin trying way too hard is funny to watch.

I think I'd like Coldplay ten times more if Martin didn't try the falsetto all the time.

Come on, mocking Bono?

I laugh at how many people think of U2 when Coldplay comes on. I just don't see it.

I've been wasting my life, Vazza's buried under her thesis, Ian's probably daydreaming about flying planes right now, and Screwtape is still sexually repressed.

Have you listened to A Rush Of Blood To The Head yet? That's their best album by far.

I swear, first time I've ever made a connection between the two. I never thought they sounded anything alike in anyway. But watching that commercial, seeing him do the iTunes performance thing, it was kind of like a "Oh, now I kind of see that" moment.

I've been incredibly busy lately and haven't had time to try any new music.

I've got three lined up next:

The Will to Death - John Frusciante
A Rush of Blood to the Head - Coldplay
In Absentia - Porcupine Tree

And many more to follow that. Fuck, all of my pacing has ceased recently. Damn school.

I need lunch. But I can't be bothered making anything, and it's too cold to go outside and buy something.

I may just go and drum for a while.

Looked like just another iTunes commercial to me. There have certainly been enough of them.

It might be jumping the gun but it can't hurt, right? I will become a famous comic book writer or die trying. If I want more than anyone else it is in reach.

Re. Coldplay:
The only time I ever was like, wow they're the same group was the first time I heard Speed of Sound. I really did think it was a U2 song I just didn't know.

And I will listen to the Rising momentarily

You mean this?

YouTube - COLDPLAY NEW ITUNES AD! VIVA LA VIDA! HQ

First time I saw it, I just laughed and laughed. Trying too hard to emulate U2 much?
