Welcome to my blog!

I am a lefty. I write vertically, cannot use can-openers and was recently foiled by a right handed ladle (I will have my vengeance...) but more than this, I generally seem to approach life from a different angle. I appreciate that this may have nothing to do with being a lefty and may just be my own dysfunctionallity, but after earning the nickname 'Lefty-Flip' after a frustrating game of Guitar Hero, it seemed an appropriate title for this blog.

Playlists and promises

What's this, blogging in the evening? From the comfort of my sofa? Don't mind if I do! You see I finally have this magical thing called the internet in my home... oh you already know about it? Oh well...
Now that I have finally got organised and committed to living in the 21st century, it's time to kick this blog into gear! I have plans, grand plans, new pages, new posts, possibly pseudo educational ones...
But first I thought I'd exploit the fact that I now have access to you tube!!!! Hoorah! I have missed you these past months!
A while back I blogged about music, and how I use it with my writing. Some songs fit the general theme of what I'm writing (sort of like the soundtrack to a movie trailer in my head!) whereas others remind me more specifically of certain characters.
My current playlist is growing nicely so I thought I'd share some of it with you.
Florence + The Machine No Light, No Light

Would you leave me if I told you what I'd done
And would you leave me If I told you what I've become...

Muse - Take a Bow

Death, you bring death and destruction to all that you touch.
Pay, you must pay
You must pay for your crimes against the earth...*

30 Seconds to Mars - Modern Myth

Save yourself, save yourself, a secret is out...

The Editors - An End has a Start

I won't disappoint you as you fall apart
some things should be simple, even an end has a start

Snow Patrol - Run

Have heart my dear, we're bound to be afraid
Even if it's just for a few days
Making up for all this mess...

Jewel - The Absence of Fear

you're no stranger, you're my gravity...
Editors - Push Your Head Towards The Air
I will run just to be by your side,
Don't you ever bat an eye
Radiohead - Exit Music
Breathe, keep breathing, don't lose your nerve,
breathe, keep breathing, I can't do this alone
Obviously these will mean far more to me as I know the stories behind the songs, but I hope it gives you a little taster, and if nothing else will provide you with some good music while I work away behind the scenes here!
Be back soon!

*Yep, this character is pretty...um, unhinged


  1. Hmmm cheery stuff. I notice a distinict lack of choral music here...

    1. Ha ha! Sorry, I'll see what I can do next time around!

  2. Hmm, my videos appear to have vanished!!! Will try and rectify that this evening!
