a big dump of words from my tired head

hello everyone
we've been off tour for almost 23 hours and its nearly my birthday which im spending putting stuff on ebay and going through my bag wondering why everything smells of gin and cranberrry juice. i think i prefer the 2000 album that spotify mistakenly lists as being the xx to the actual the xx album and i thought i should write something so people didnt think that the tour we just did Actually Killed Us.


thank you nottingham for filling a room we couldnt come close to last year and giving us like, Actual Confidence
thank you oxford for the nicest steak dinners ever everest
thank you birmingham for the singalong bits that mean more to me and kel than any other night weve been on that stage which is like a bazillion
thank you exeter for the guy with the ghost shoes and the juice selection
thank you brighton for the flies in the toilets and the thuggish doormen
thank you london for the biggest show we've ever done on our own. (sorry, we'd have done an encore if i wasnt being violently sick!)
thank you sheffield for the hotel room and not putting pictures of me being sick on the internet
thank you manchester for putting up with us and our broken gear and supersizing our travelodge rooms
thank you leeds, you know the score..
glasgow, sorry, just, sorry.
thank you liverpool for killing yr barfly and fixing our stuff cheap and reaffirming our beliefs that people in liverpool are just, BETTER.
thank you cambridge for a suitabley drunken and happy ending.

thank you dan for coming with us to sell and fix and document and entertain us
thank you mark for driving us and definetly not being some kind of louche secret druggy pervert or anything
thank you francis for making us tour laminates and generally taking care of EVERYTHING EVER

um, so. yeh. i had to walk to the supermarket, it was the first time ive walked more than ten minutes or listened to headphones for 2 weeks, it was well odd.

anyways, commerce, otherwise know as holy fuck were on tour for the rest of the year how do we afford to live time.

the remaining stock of new tshirts is available to purchase from our merch store as of NOWNOWNOW. this hyperlink goes to the buying them screen

theres more news obviously, we'll write about the tour properly too. cos dan took a million videos and pictures and some of its PRETTY RELEVANT.

Great article Certified Nutrition Coach, Rose Cole, on how low can make you gain weight and be tired all the time, and what you can do about it. Very interesting.

Seeing these kind of posts reminds me of just how technology truly is an integral part of our lives in this day and age, and I can say with 99% certainty that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further innovates, the possibility of uploading our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could experience in my lifetime.
