Soma

I love this Pendulum song, it's something I listen to often if I'm having difficulty falling asleep. It also contains lyrics from one of my favourite books - Brave New World. I love dystopia, it's so maudlin. Brave New World is one of the few books that has changed how I see life. The other song that I've listed also refers to the soma song from Brave New World, it is equally nice to Coma, if different. For those of you who haven't read the book, soma is a fictional hallucinogenic drug, that gives people 'hangover-free holidays'. Speaking of Pendulum, I think that the majority of their latest work is a complete disaster - similarly to Prodigy, or any band in that kind of genre that became mainstream - which is a shame. Sometimes I wish that a lot of the artists I listen to would become famous for their sake, but then I remember that nearly all artists that I've know of that have become famous keep producing more and more terrible music. Does being rich make you lazy, or does it damage your artistic capacity and/or hearing? Thank you to everyone who posted music suggestions in my last post, by the way!
Below are some photos - I don't look entirely back to health yet, so disregard it. I love rosary beads, I find them very beautiful. I am not a Christian, but my life has been very influenced by Irish Catholicism and the church. I have an affinity for the austerity and modest gaudiness of the aesthetics of the Catholic church, yet not for the beliefs. You can find this on LB HERE.

Coma - Pendulum


Love is as Good as Soma - Tiamat

    i was doing some googling and the pendulum that did the song coma are different from the pendulum that just came out with an album as the coma pendulum broke up in 1997. i could be wrong.

  15. You always look great!

    I have a little question, about hair extensions.
    Where do I buy long (50-55 cm) wavy ginger coloured hair online ? I can't find anything anywhere and it's so frustrating. So I wondered if you knew about any websites who sells that and eventually where did you buy yours ? I'll be so very, very happy if you answer me.. I'ts really hard to sit and search the web.

    If you reply, do reply to my emailadress: stiine_m@hotmail.com.

    Hope you would like to help me with that.

    I'm seriously disturbed by the fact that you look clearly sick and everyone compliments you on your look. Hello? This girl should be in bed. :-(
