The state i am in


B&S

Dia sim, dia sim, não há nada como ouvir uma musiquinha (ou a discografia completa, porque não?) dos Belle and Sebastian. Ou talvez haja. Ver o dvd Fans only, documento incontornável para quem, como eu, gostaria que os dias tivessem mais horas só para poder ficar a ouvi-los sem parar, e não fazer mais nada--
Stuart D. - que, juntamente com o outro Stuart, o que canta, fez parte da formação inicial da banda, tudo boa gente de Glasgow - decidiu parar de tocar baixo e passar antes a ser escritor, go figure. Mas, antes de partir, disse umas coisas bem giras on the telly:

I used to have a camera called a Zenith but i gave it to Karn and she used to take photographs of pavements for a while but when i went to get the camera back she said there was a bit of dirt in the lens. To make it up for it, she gave me a really good pen she had. A spacepen. The instructions said it was the most advanced writing instrument in the world and it was designed for astronauts to use on their way to the moon. It can write upside down, over grease and fingerprints, in blazing heat and even under water. So i took that. I wasn't planning on going to the moon but i thought maybe i could sell it to buy a new camera. But it didn't turn out to be worth much. So in the end i decided what i would do is, i would just take photographs with the pen instead. I would just write the picture down, and it turned out quite well.

Para dar mais realismo à leitura, acrescentar pronúncia escocesa.
