Buildings On Fire

Listen here:

Once, Picasso was asked what his paintings meant. He said, ‘Do you ever know what the birds are singing? You don’t. But you listen to them anyway.’ So, sometimes with art, it is important just to look.

There’s an element to songwriting that I can’t explain, that comes from somewhere else. I can’t explain that dividing line between nothing and something that happens within a song, where you have absolutely nothing, and then suddenly you have something. It’s like the origin of the universe.

—Nick Cave


Guided By Voices - Hold on Hope (acoustic cover) by Buildings on Fire

Do the Collapse was the first record I ever bought by Guided By Voices. This was the first track that I really loved of theirs. I hope you enjoy it :)

Shout out to all those that reside in Berkshire England :)

  • To anyone who is from Berkshire UK, or, better still Reading. Hit me up : )

SNOWPIERCER - Official Trailer (2013)

A post-apocalyptic ice age forces humanity’s last survivors aboard a globe-spanning super train. One man (Chris Evans) will risk everything to lead a revolt for control of the engine and the future of the world.

Has anyone seen this film? It’s had a really limited release. Is it any good? It certainly looks good.

No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.

You’re only given one little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.
