I am feeling much better… Finally. They did indeed make sure I did not have the Swine Flu as I had a lot of the same symptoms. I have never been in a hospital bed before but I am no stranger to hospital beds as I visited my dad daily. Hospitals are scary places for all and as I was laying there waiting I began thinking… You feel so helpless and vulnerable in your open back gown and thin cold sheet. You wait for results and answers only to be poked and proded to await for more answers. Alarms sound, monitors beep and you can hear strange mysterious noises coming from the walls… Then you wait some more. I was one of the lucky ones and for that I am quite thankful.

Came across Florence and the Machine, which is a UK based band headed by singer Florence Welch. Similar to fellow UK artist Kate Nash but I feel Welch shows entirely more promise then Nash ever has. Her debut full length will be released in July but a little EP teaser is available on eMusic. Enjoy!

    Probably worth mentioning this awesome song is a Cold War Kids cover? But I’ll leave that up to you.
