I have rediscovered my love for The Gaslight Anthem. The other day I heard their single on the radio and felt like listening to their music again and now I can't stop playing their "The 59 Sound" album. The melodies, the lyrics, the voice, this certain melancholy in their sound, everything is just perfect to me. Music that is so beautiful that it almost makes you cry, but in a good way. Do you know these songs that make movie scenes come to your mind? Like you hear a passage of a song and automatically think about how perfect it would be as the background music for one particular scene and it all makes perfect sense in your imagination and you think "Damn why can't I be a director?"
That's what their music triggers in my mind. And I love it.
"We could run all night
And dance upon the architecture
Come and take my hand
I'll do the very best I can"
And do you sometimes think about a soundtrack of your life? Well, I do and I know for sure that it would have to contain The Gaslight Anthem. Also the Deftones, Rise Against and The Ataris. What about yours?

I took these photos on Wednesday. Everything's pretty unspectacular, the outfit (casual 'n comfy), the setting (balcony) and the occasion (I went to the traffic department to request a new driver's license). But it was lovely weather and I like how the photos turned out.
The only thing special about this is the hair. I had seen this hairstyle on a girl in the tube the other day and thought it's really cool and also easy to do. Why do I never get ideas like that? So I braided a strand and used it as a headband. Brilliant!
I like this even better than wearing a headband because my conehead always makes these stretchy headbands wander to the back and mess up my hair.

Unfortunately I don't have more interesting things to tell you today. I had to drive my dad to the airport very very early this morning, so I'm pretty tired. I think I'll spend the evening in front of the laptop listening to this awesome music.

Happy Friday! :)
