I’ve decided with so much time on my hands as part of a daily ritual I’m going to create one letter each day for 26 days, until I have a full alphabet. Each letter will be created in a unique way.
Over 26 days, living in a new country in a new apartment I imagine a lot will change along the way so in-turn each letter will tell a story about my new life.
11th March 2011
I think it’s important to reflect and learn from the past, so I decided to think of a number of important things from the first quarter of a century of my life. Some of them I even frown upon myself.
Anti-Nowhere League - For you
The Boys - Lonely cowboy
Blur - Country house
Bloodhound Gang - I hope you die
Black Sabbath - Die young
Cyndi Lauper - Girls just wanna have fun
Fillaments - Life’s not a privilage
Guang Liang - Tonghua
Iron Maiden - The prisoner
In Flames - Clayman
Jamie T - Sticks n’ stones
King Adora - Suffocate
Lynyrd Skynyrd - Tuesday’s gone
Megadeth - 99 ways to die
Motley Crue - Kickstart my heart
Millencolin - Material boy
Poison - Ride the wind
Ramones - Strength to endure
Roy Orbison - Drove all night
Rush - Finding my way
Sonata Arctica - The cage
Skid Row - Psycho love
Sweet - Peppermint Twist
T-Rex - New York city
Thin Lizzy - Cowboy song
This one was probably the easiest to finish. 1 song per artist, 25 songs that I like, have liked or have held substantial importance in my life so far.
Graham Roberts (who I was nearly named after!?)
Rafael Van Der Vaart
When I got to about 12 my mind really started to wonder. I’m not sure if there are 25 fonts I like, or have affected me enough to be put in to my top 25, so here’s 15 for now. I’m sure I’ll be reminded of some more at a later date.
