it's crazy for me to make connection but i just can't help myself

so if the album's title "Romance at short notice" was based on that funny short story of Saki, what caught my eyes most was this little paragraph:

"Out through that window, three years ago to a day, her husband and her two young brothers went off for their day's shooting. They never came back. In crossing the moor to their favorite snipe-shooting ground they were all three engulfed in a treacherous piece of bog. It had been that dreadful wet summer, you know, and places that were safe in other years gave way suddenly without warning. Their bodies were never recovered. That was the dreadful part of it... Poor aunt always thinks that they will come back someday, they and the little brown spaniel that was lost with them, and walk in at that window just as they used to do. That is why the window is kept open every evening till it is quite dusk."

that is just the response to:
And I know where to find you, my love
In the same old flat by the river
The only way in was through the window

this is a hopeless fangirl.

I feel quite chuffed today cos' I finally received the frenchdog's gift. the envelope even has its "signature", cute!

Thank you Adam

ha! i've told you, "this is where the truth begins", and of course, romance at short notice was carla's speciality, wasn't it? *winks*

it's not only made me think about that song you say, also remind me of their first meeting, in front of the window, Thames, amy-jo's dorm?

another hopeless fangirl here~

still i can't help but laugh loudly when i hear he sings "I scream when I come"... (oh, NC-17, sorry) although sometimes he said he had a "evil-carl" inside, but i thought maybe i was a "carl-evil", always i wanna laugh at him when he said something or did some poses in photos or... , even when he stood in front of me, sorry dear... *rolled-eyes*

glad you got that cd gift, mine post to my friend's dorm who studies in uk now, cos i didn't know how to buy uk-stamp here and had no idea if there's other ways... *a stupid fangirl*

"This is where the truth begins" only made me think of Manics's "This is my truth and tell me yours" both are suck as an album's name (but both are my favourite bands). I love "romance" more.

haha, someone wearing a pvc jacket and was misunderstood as incontinence, i long to read the memoirs of the loving couple in the future.

Haha, i know what u mean about hippy son, i felt exactly the same, really can't help LOL. "I'm into porn and guns, i'm virile, fertile, i scream when i come", this man is being rubbish again, shit, how can someone so funny even ridiculous but also so good-looking, i know carl in essence is cool and intellectual, but he really got such vibe of comedy, he himself is an arcadian paradox.

oh you also got that little treat from Adam, I have an equal match!! I suppose I was the only one living so far away but still hassle herself to make a claim to Adam! I really like those songs of Roses Kings Castles in myspace and never expected Adam is so talented. When he joined Babyshambles, he struck me as an ordinary middle-aged drummer (peter just pick up someone who can drum and tolerate his lifestyle), but i was wrong. Adam also looks much younger and better these days, i sometimes think it's the magic of peter [peter again and again, disgusting fangirl] as he brings up the creative and poetic side of people, though i don't think Mik can be changed under the magic of peter, at least not for his outlook.

oh, mik. well..... :p

adam really is a good lad, i remember when i asked my friend's help, she replied like "ok, but how much should i pay?", when she knew just needed a stamped envelope but cd was for free, she said "why on earth there's a band is so kindly to their fans?" (made me pride, ha) yes, not only peter (again), also adam and drew!! drew's looking is better and better now as well (fangirl speech), also a sweet guy who ever replied my mail in myspace so kindly. i'm glad they team with peter, and each of them do some works by themselves at the same time.

lots of rubbish events could make me think about carlos: new song, my interview, moleskine pocket notebook, sexual-affairs video, american-accent-joke video...... ohhh, genius, genius, genius... :p

anyway, i should thanks them to release their first single of second album in my birthday! ta!

kittyshambles said...
