So after much meandering and ummmming and ahhhhing i finally booked tickets for Coldplay (with Girls Aloud supporting!! - my guilty pleasure!). i have wanted to see them live for such a very long time, i even have one of their concerts on DVD!! The reason i have dillydallyed so long is because a)the cost b) it takes quite a lot of effort to get up and down to London c) i'm not the hugest fan of arena gigs (prefer more intimate ones).

But yesterday was one of those really tough days that makes you question your own mortality & affirm that you really should get the most out of life while you can. And i am hoping that i never get to the stage of my life where days like these are a regular occurance, because i just don't think i have the strength.

So i was listening to Viva La Vida (which i belive you will love even if you are a Coldplay hater) this morning in the car on the way to work, thinking how brilliant it is and how i should bloody well go and see them live because it is surely to be fantastic and i knew i would regret not going if they never did another gig again.

So what i'm trying to say is: Do what makes you happy. Make sure your life is full of moments that fill you with joy & make you feel alive. Surround yourself with people you love. Create Perfect days. You never know when your last one will be.

OK, now i've done my little 'live every day like it's your last' speech (i like to remind myself as much as you) here's some other music i love right now:

Marmaduke Duke
Mute Math
White Lies
Red Light Company

And you must check out Lovers in Japan Video for it's awesomeness. Does anyone know how they do that squiggly light?
