Poll: Has The Magic Whip improved your life?

Post by Foggy » 27 Apr 2015, 23:56

It dawned on me earlier that much of my coasting / daydream time has been spent thinking about this new album, wondering what the studio versions would sound like, whether there'll be more tour dates, and whatnot. It's given me something to embrace and feel excited about.

Ordinarily I tend to spend my downtime dwelling bitterly on all the times I've been screwed over, or fretting about how skint I'll inevitably be when I'm a pensioner. So, this last month or so there's definitely been more positivity in my life.

Anyone else?

My life has been pretty dull of lately, so this has upped the ante quite a bit :mrgreen:

Not just the album (which is such a gift in itself!) but all the comes with it... TV shows, interviews, magazines, videos, and of course, live shows! Haven't been this excited in quite some time!
I've been drifting along in the same stale old shoes
Loose ends tyin' a noose in the back of my mind...

Definitely. The last 2-3 months have been a bit difficult for me for personal reasons, so the whole TMW experience has managed to elevate my spirits.

Same. I'm a moment of change and confusion and it has become something to look forward to :)

Touch wood, I don't have too much to complain about, but life has definitely been lit up by this whole thing happening. Little moments of excitement bursting into your day for the last few months as we find out some new snippet has been glorious. Let's hope it carries on all summer. All year!

I've cruised through life without a care in the world but since last August I've had an absolute nightmare. A complete nightmare. The Magic Whip, and all the excitement and youthful exuberance that has come with it, has genuinely been a gigantic pick-me-up. I've loved it and am still revelling in it. :)

I wake up everyday with 12 amazing Blur songs that I haven't heard a hundred times before. So yeah, life's better.

I hope Tweedz gets to see this and understands how happy they've made us with recovering those Hong Kong tapes :)

Yes, I was so regretful to have missed the opportunity to see them live in 2013 and so with this album this opportunity has returned and I'm so delighted by this and by the joy that these new, wonderful songs brings to my life everytime I listen to them.
And I've booked a trip of 4 days to Paris with my husband to see them and have a little holday for our 20th wedding anniversary! Love it!!!!!
And loooove Blur!!
