Anybody who knows me well knows that Jimmy Eat World are my favourite band in the whole world ever. There's no other band where I can have such a big back catalogue and can listen to it all without not wanting to skip any, or with so many songs that I love and really connect with. Until last year I'd never seen them live though.
They played in Norwich in 2010 (I didn't go as I didn't want to go alone), and in 2011 they played two shows in London playing two of my favourite albums (well, favourites now, one of them not so much at the time) back to back in full (which I didn't even know happened until recently), but as they had a new album out in 2013, I had to make sure I saw them. And I did.
I need to get something off my chest. This is something extremely personal to me, not something I like talking about, I've only told two people about it until now, and it's something I'm pretty embarrassed about, but it's time I just let it all out. This is the last time I'll let myself go over it or talk about it so it gives me a small sense of closure, and isn't something I want to keep bottled up inside anymore. I wanted to keep it short but I kept adding more and more and it's gone a bit How-I-Met-Your-Mother, a bit long and convoluted and overly-detailed, but needs it for everything to make sense and to make the point in the end. It's something not everybody will understand, and that's fine, not everybody needs to, but it is what it is. What happened here hit me very hard, and this is the only way I can deal with it and try to understand it, this is my therapy and my release, to stop me thinking about it forever.
Only PHP at the moment. Can't focus on too many things at once!
Not really, not like some others. It used to be one of my favourites but not anymore, it's probably their most well known song but I think it's a bit overrated, no way is it their best song.
Dunno really, hard to say. I like where I am at the moment but I don't really know any massive companies that are big on PHP. I used to want to be a mechanic though and if I changed what I do and did that, I'd want to work at BMW.
Look at existing code, see what it does and how it works. Add stuff, change stuff, break stuff. Write little scripts that do one thing just for the sake if using a certain piece of code or new technique. Learn by doing.
I've been to two, going to another one tomorrow and another week after next :) Last two were amazing.
I do, I have a liking for BMWs, purely because we've had them as family cars since forever, I've had one, they look great (especially older ones) and are great to drive.
Can't say it is, nothing should have changed to break it though.
