In heaven it's always autumn

Another excursion to the library and eerily enough the pee-smelling "Insane! Thank you!"-guy is here again. Maybe he lives here or something...

In any case, have you noticed how autumn has begun ever so slowly to make its way into the world? Probably. Yesterday I went for a walk in Valbyparken (and managed to get lost because I have as much sense of direction as... Well, I can't think of a comparison, but I assure you that it's not much!) and there were people with kites and a wind to give you red cheeks. I always get a bit hopeful jut at the onset of autumn, after sweating my arse off for months, I find the prospect of wrapping myself in scarves, sweaters and tweed and cuddle up inside with knitwork and soup quite nice, actually. Of course, in real life, autumn is nothing like this at all. Come October, and I'll be sick and tired of the rain, the cold and that damn wind always blowing the wrong way when you're riding your bike downtown. But right now, sweaters seem quite nice.

Also, this autumn sees the arrival of the new Manic Street Preachers-album. So far, I'm very unimpressed by the details of it. Life Blood is hardly a brilliant title and the concept of "The Holy Bible for 35-year-olds" just sounds too shite for words. It's always a bit sad to see your heroes selling out, but earlier I would find myself hoping for that next album or that next single being the turning point where someone would get back on track. Maybe it's me growing old and cynical (that's pretty likely, actually), but I just can't find that hope for the new Manics-album. Oh well.

Anyway, I'll be heading off home. I'm pretty close to being done with everything now, there's posters on the walls (although with the extraordinarily crappy blu-tac I've bought, there might not be when I get back home) and all I need is the shelves for my CD's to be put up on the wall and some curtains for my living room. The last thing is the bigger challenge, I think. If they should fit with the rest of the room, they're going to be either white, black or red. White's a bit dull, I'm not in Burzum (yet) making black a bad idea too and seeing as I'm not planning on opening a brothel (not enough bedrooms), red is not really an option either. Decisions, decisions...
