This song and I have some issues. Namely, it pops into my head on a regular basis and refuses to leave.
So I bought my ticket to go see Bloc Party. I am excited.
BUT LOOK WHO ELSE IS PLAYING IN THE NEAR FUTURE:
Why does it cost $46 to go see The xx? I like them a lot, but that is at least one and half trips to Trader Joe’s.

For once in my life, I have someone to spend the holiday with.
While this is fantastic, I am much more familiar with the other side. The side of shuffling past the couples on the street and eating Valentine’s chocolates at home by yourself, hoping that your friends will want to do something that night.
No, this isn’t a list of sugared up love songs. These are some songs about love—the optimism, the bitterness, the smiles, awkward hugs, the determination to makes things work out, the laughter, the heartbreak, the longing, all of it.
So this is for you, my Valentines, whether you are celebrating it by yourself or with someone you care about. Keep your chins up, kids.
