Sidebar updated + Oasis in SP

So I finally updated that side bar with everything I’m currently doing. Had to start reading Eça de Queirós for college and now I hate it that I never took the time to read it before. I have a huge pile of papers and books to read and this book is kinda boring and kinda long, a fatal combo.

I also stopped knitting that cowl because I had to go back to the pattern all the time and it is a bit impossible doing that in a bus. The Lady Parker Beret is way easier, so it’s fitted for this situation.

And I’ve been watching True Blood for quite some time now. It got me hooked right from the beginning and it has a great music theme. With all that teen hype surrounding Twilight, I was a bit doubtful about this show. I mean, I like vampires since I was little but this whole Edward-Bella drama… Well, let’s just say that if I had to pick a vampires’ book to kids and teens, it would be Vampirates.

Finally, as you can see, I’m still in love with Kings of Leon. I had this phase where I totally hated their last album, Only By the Night, but eventually that feeling fade out and now I adore it very much. I still think Aha Shake Heartbreak is the best ever, though.

And since we’re talking about music, I have to say I’m over the moon with joy. Oasis will be playing in São Paulo on the 9th May, just seven days after my birthday. For a few reasons, I’ve been saving every single penny that comes into my hands, but this is a super special occasion, most certainly, and I’ll be sure to get extremely good seats. Hopefully, we’ll be already having cold time to make everything even more perfect.

Below, check out the video for I’m Outta Time. Not my favourite Oasis’ song, but still quite cute. (This is a strategy ’cause I just don’t have the time to make a post with pictures and all that.)


Recently discovered: Kings of Leon

I always liked Kings of Leon, but it was never really my favourite band. I kinda weeped a bit when they came to play in a festival here in Brazil in 2005 and I couldn’t go (I had already bought the ticket and also missed Arcade Fire, MIA and Strokes; weeping was the least I could do), but it was really no big deal. But now, I’ve been listening to their most recent album,  Only by the night (which is not that recent, come think about it; I guess it was released last October), and freaking out at how good it is.  Then, I went back to their previous work and… oh, my f***ing jesus. How could I have missed it so entirely? I mean, they are really good, aren’t they? How come I never saw that brilliancy before? I was blind but now I see. 😉

So, right now, my favourite band is Kings of Leon. I’ll leave you with two videos from their last Later with Jools Holland appearence. Sex on Fire is their first single from this last album. On Call is a great song from Because of the times. Check it out!
