Floods in Devon = I am listening to The Penguin Cafe Orchestra and thinking happy thoughts...

NickJSouthall: melodies played on mobile phones and such like
NickJSouthall: IT'S MY JOB

NickJSouthall: oh god
NickJSouthall: when i was 19 i tried to burn down my flat because i hated the people i lived with
fadeout95: hahhahahah
NickJSouthall: i told them satan was coming
fadeout95: my follow-up question was going to be "how did you handle them?" but now I'm not quite so sure I want to know.
NickJSouthall: i lft the flat
NickJSouthall: and drank a lot
NickJSouthall: read too much sartre
NickJSouthall: went into total existential crisis

fadeout95: nice.
fadeout95: mine's a theatre major. He keeps doing phonetic exercises and rehearsing lines badly and screaming a lot.
fadeout95: I'm trying to drown him out but it's not humanly possible.
NickJSouthall: is he kicking a football against your door atb 4am and screaming "wake up you weird cunt" at you?
fadeout95: no don't think so.
NickJSouthall: has his best mate (who you are sure he is in love with in a very repressed homosexual way) thrust his hand through your kitchen window, severing an artery and leaving you to pluck glass out of his hand?

From the sounds of it, you did have a worse university experience than I'm having! Although I've had my share of existential crises. (I love that word..."existential.") Anyway, this made me smile. And what a beautiful place, wherever you keep taking these photos.

Most of the photographs come from within 500 yards of my front door.
