as if there is a legitimate wikipedia entry defining b-town:
'B-Town is the name given to an indie music scene based in the Digbeth area of Birmingham, England.'
'In July 2013 Cavan McCarthy of Swim Deep claimed that the term started off as a joke, invented by himself and Harry Koisser of Peace while driving back into Birmingham from outside the city, and that “now everyone says it and we’re a bit embarrassed about it” '

Peace - 1998 (Binary Finary cover)
I was kind of disappointed with Peace’s set at Glasto, but the other night was AMAZING. Stood in admiration of the guitar work a lot of the time, came away with many barrier bruises, and even the guy with an apparent sweat issue pressed up behind me didn’t dull the night too much.
(not going to lie it did make me want to vomit a couple of times though)
(I just looked up the lyrics to this song and lyric websites have an interesting interpretation, i.e. completely different song?)

John Frusciante - Time Goes Back
john’s solo music is so different from his work in the chili peppers; some of it is quite inaccessible in a way, but this I love
I wish I could’ve seen him live with the RHCP, he was the reason I started playing guitar (well mostly; a small part of it was my 13 year old self wanting to be as cool as Anna from Freaky Friday, but anyway) and worked at it until I could do the thumb-over chords in Under The Bridge, but I love that he’s making music in a way that makes him happier now

Faultline ft. Chris Martin - Your Love Means Everything, Part 2
*adds this song to list of songs that make you feel like you’re lying on clouds*

i’m watching louis theroux documentaries; I love his perpetually confused expression and how good he is at remaining entirely calm in the face of some really stupid and somewhat terrifying people
(also, to add to the bucket list: kissing a girl whilst standing in front of the westboro baptist church picketers)

ATTENTION FRIENDS, FOLLOWERS, CREEPERS, HATEFOLLOWERS, ETC.
Even if you don’t normally support and/or pay attention to Movember, you should should support my glorious partner Quen Took’s Mospace. He’s raising money not only for cancer charities, but also for mental health organisations, trans* support organisations, and organisations that support cis and trans* men who have experienced sexual abuse, and.
As he is unable to grow his own facial hair, being a trans* man who is pre-testosterone, he will be creating a different piece of false facial hair every day of November, and uploading the (fabulous) photographs.
If you can donate even a little, or just cheerlead him along the way, you will get to appreciate his magnificently inventive and seemingly endless* repertoire of facial hair.
*(may seem less endless as November crawls on, but if you donate you may be able to make requests/suggestions. Myself, I have ten quid for a Jafar beard.)
So go forth, support him, and enjoy his facial hair artistry while supporting immensely worthy causes.
Here’s the link again, in case you missed my embedding it: http://uk.movember.com/mospace/8083201
And even if you can’t, or if you can, please do us the favour of reblogging or reposting this wherever to signal boost it. :)
