Funny or interesting stuff gets my attention most of the time, and out of what I watch, these are the most well-known.
Favorite movies :
Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and James Bond (especially Goldeneye and Casino Royale), pretty much because they are such classic series of films. Also thought-provoking and original films like The Truman Show are favourites of mine.
Autumn time reminds me of you
Gives me a reminiscent view
I walk along the garden path
Towards a scene from the past
Climbing into trees
I scrape my hands and my knees
Weaker leaves begin to fall
As if they couldn't hold on
Your legs, they won't carry you anymore
A swallowing disease
The more it takes the less you feel
We dread the future just in case
We are the memories that it takes
Half the size you used to be
Behind your eyes, a vacancy
Where once was colour; hazy grey
We think about you everyday
Your eyes, they don't recognise me anymore
It tears us up inside
Broken hearts and warped minds
When it decides that it's your time
We'll be the ones it leaves behind
There is no way out
So here we stand
End of the line
So much unplanned
I never saw so far
Cut me off
Put me out of your mind
Cross me off your list
And leave me far behind
You say we must move on
I say I've got to hold on
To the bits and pieces I have seen
Or do you live just to forget again?
Cut me off...
In a foreign place
I couldn't match your pace
Now, not a friendly face
Could remove this taste
Of keeping my mouth shut when I wanted to speaker louder than I ever had before but then I always let these moments pass

We've gigged a few times and will definitely be doing more now we're done with school. We have an E.P. - "Stroke Limit" - coming soon and you can hear a few tracks from it on our website.

I love music. If I like a song, I'll listen to it regardless of whether I like the artist themselves. Genres are categories for the music, not labels for people to follow.
I love to play guitar, bass, piano/keyboard and sing. I wish I owned a drumkit too, and might get a cheapo electonic one for the hell of it.
I also write a whole lot of music, usually on Guitar Pro, which is a massive help to me. I used to be alright at tabbing on GP as well, but have less time to do it these days.
