i know this is like, controversial here in britain, but i for one think that the royal family are a wonderful part of our heritage and culture and we as a society are richer for having them, and it would be a huge loss if we were to end the monarchy
At exactly this hour one year ago, I was being pressed against a metal
barrier with Alex Turner and Miles Kane 10 feet in front of my face.
After waiting outside for 7 hours in the hot summer sun to see my
favorite musicians in the whole wide world, everything at this exact
moment was falling into place as I was having the best and most special
night of my entire life. From my eyes first seeing the face of Alex
Turner and hearing him serenade Miles from a balcony, from the two
sharing a mic because Al forgot where he put his, to an after-show
acoustic set with the two acting like utter hooligans, I was in literal
heaven. Not a single day has gone by that I don’t think of this show and
how unbelievable lucky I was to experience it. I have loved these goofs
for years and years and never ever thought the day would come
where I would see them live. I will never take this day for granted as
long as I live. So, in honor of the loves of my life, Al and Miles, here
a few moments I managed to capture from that incredibly magical night // The Last Shadow Puppets at the Cleveland Agora, July 24th, 2016
Today marks the one-year anniversary of the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting. Today is a reminder that the LGBT+ community is not a quiet, passive community.
We are strong, we are powerful, and we are valid citizens of the Earth.
We protect each other as the patrons of the club tried to protect their people. Even though 49 of our brothers, sisters, and friends were killed, it doesn’t give anyone the right to say that we are weak.
We are strong
We are a powerful community
We are Orlando
But we are not forgotten
