  1. I mean I really know nothing about the business of these sort of things, but do you think there's a chance that a Glastonbury headliner announcement might help boost the BST ticket sales? If their announcement didn't make quite as big of an impact as they'd hoped, maybe having Taylor's name splashed all over the place about Glastonbry would be a good opportunity to say "well, you won't be able to see her there without a Glasto ticket but fortunately you can still see her in Hyde Park!" Surely all the news stories about a Glasto headline slot would mention "Taylor's only other show in the UK this summer will be at BST.."

    I'm going to have to make room in my bag to bring all of the neck scarves.

    Never knew I wanted this until now. Barring a clash with one of my all time faves, I will absolutely be there for this!
  4. Aww, my brother has just got us tickets for BST. When it started looking likely that Taylor would be one of the Glasto headliners, I was thrilled but with an edge of disappointment that I wouldn't be there with my brother. We've always been close but I really think in the last few years Taylor has become a current thing that we can communicate over that isn't our old favourite Simpsons jokes and family in-jokes. I'm still determined to try and get him a ticket in the resale, but the odds are slightly rougher. In short: Love my brother. Love Taylor. Brother is the biggest Swiftie I know. Taylor has brought us closer again in recent years. Thank you Taylor.
  5. I am a sucker for home video videos. I particularly enjoyed the bit with the dog.
  6. I've had the exact same thought this afternoon as I haven't noticed her on any of the big lineup releases. Through a little googling I saw something to suggest she is at "We Love Green" festival in France on 6th June, but I can't find anything aside from that.
  7. Honestly I was quite staggered by that myself but I think it's due to two things 1) getting an amazon echo which I use to listen to music whilst playing video games 2) finally getting in to podcasts.. Still quite a step up though!
  8. Loving all the "end of decade" data - the top songs are just taking me right back through those times.
  9. Thought the sky looked just like the Lover motif this morning, made it the perfect soundtrack for my journey to work. That is all.
  10. Just adding to the voices saying that Glastonbury doesn't have nearly as high an international profile as some might think. I spent a year living in the States, and no one knows about it. If they do it is only because they've spent a significant amount of time in the UK, or they know someone from here who talks about it a lot. I guess there must be people out there who know about it just because they're really into music, but I never met any. I would say it is far more likely that a random person on the street in the UK knows of Coachella, than people in the States know about Glasto. And that's fine! It's not like we need any more people to compete for tickets against. It can just remain our (big) little secret 🙂
  11. Got my annual leave approved for Glasto week 😎 I've finally learnt my lesson and have booked the Tuesday off for recovery also. Nobody's going to want me back in work that whole week to be honest, as the festival will be the only thing on my mind anyway... much as the weeks leading up to it... much like now..
  12. I remember spending a lovely hour lying/half dozing in the Pyramid Field on Sunday of 2013 listening to Rufus Wainwright. I can imagine Mickey in a similar slot but I wouldn't be there.
  13. Oooh I'd love to see Bill Bailey and The Futureheads at Glasto.
  14. This is pretty challenging for me as I am the first to admit that my taste in music is not "current" - and actually sitting down and trying to figure this out I realised that some of the acts I thought I could put on here actually released the stuff I love in 2006-9... Still, these artists and albums have played significant parts in what has been the most challenging decade of my life so far (the bulk of university, living abroad, moving to a new city for a job, buying a house there). I am absolutely not giving this list the title of "the best" albums, as as prior stated I simply cannot attest to that due to the small sample of my listening, but these have been my favourite albums of 2010-19 (in no particular order) Lana Del Rey - Born To Die Emilia Amper - Lux The Tallest Man on Earth - The Wild Hunt Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Push The Sky Away Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp a Butterfly Tame Impala - Currents Taylor Swift - 1989 Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Skeleton Tree Lana Del Rey - Norman Fucking Rockwell Joe Pug - Windfall Honourable mention for my track of the decade: Mitski- "Your Best American Girl"
