First of all, I think a Merry Christmas is due to you all! By now you should've got it, I'm not the most regular updater in here, but you know, lately my personal life has been so intense, both in a good and in a bad way, that I haven't been giving a single thought to fanlistings for months. I've been back at school, too, for my 3rd high school year (out of 5, here in Italy) and words seriously cannot convey how much hard it has been until Christmas holidays. Things are more interesting than last year, indeed, but we have some oral tests with a huge amount of material, it feels like you're attending University exams! Anyway, I'm not saying I'm not enjoying it. For example, we finally started to study some Latin literature (all that grammar was pissing me off!) as well as the Italian 13th century, so we're soon starting with Dante Alighieri. Speaking of changes, I'm not studying Geography anymore, but on the other hand I've been freaking out because of Science/Chemistry (why do I even have to study it? There must be a reason if I chose Classical studies three years ago!). The most wonderful news, however, is Philosophy. You don't know how much I love it - and, as people say, this at the beginning is the boring part! What will the interesting part be like? Anyway, I'll now stop boring you with my school business. Just remember to visit the latest (and only) fanlisting I've been approved for: the one for the relationship between Sigur Rós' Jónsi and his boyfriend Alex, Mouths in tune. And since this will probably be the last post of the year, happy 2011!
Hey! Updates here are so infrequent, but actually I don't have so much time to spend on fanlistings. I'm now on holiday, but with my homework to do (and I haven't started it yet!), friends to see and random meetings, I've been busier in summer than I was during school. I'm leaving on Thursday to see the amazing Jónsi live in Ferrara, here in Italy, and I'll well out of the occasion to stay in Bologna, near there, at my friend Giada's for a few days. Anyway, talking about fanlistings: the biggest news here is that I've been approved for (and, after a small problem with inspiration and time, finished) the fanlisting for Editors! It's beautiful, isn't it? Words cannot describe how much I adore them, their music, their lyrics, Tom's voice (well, I also have a sort of a crush on him, but that doesn't count) and... I don't know, anything about them is golden. So much love and pride in owning their listing. ♥ I hope to see them live someday, unfortunately I couldn't do it when they came here in Torino - I so regret it, they were so close! But my father was busy and couldn't bring me there. In the meanwhile, I'll go see Jón. Have you heard his solo album? It's so wonderful it stops my breath, I swear. To be honest, I started thinking that I didn't know what the word "music" meant before I got into Sigur Rós. And maybe I could apply for some fanlisting about them when I get back, who knows? Have an happy summer you all!
I'm sorry for my long leaving! Day after day I get more busy at school, but apart from this, my life is going well. I feel good with myself and I started to go to bed at a decent time, so I'm more relaxed during the day and I have the time to read something every evening. For example, I'm now reading The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafňn and I'm absolutely loving it! Ok, now let's talk about serious stuff. I've completed three fanlistings and I think there are a few things worth saying about them. First of all, the fanlisting for the amazing Brian Aubert, lead singer/guitarist for Silversun Pickups, which is definitely a crush of mine and one of my favourite male voices at the moment. I love everything he does, writes, sings, plays, screams or whatever; plus he's so fuckin' cute and funny! Really, I think I would marry him if I could. Then, talking about related stuff, I've been approved for a Silversun Pickups album, actually my favourite one of the - approximately - three they've done: Carnavas. I'm quite proud of the layout, even if it's simple and clean... dunno. There's something I love about it, I don't know what but I'll tell you when I figure out, lol. Last but not least - because it's surely a thing worth remembering - I've been approved for Sonic Youth! Oh - my - freakin' - gosh! I can't believe I'm running the fanlisting for one of the most important rock bands of all times, and, of course, one of my favourites. Make sure you join if you're a fan!

Fanlisting owners. We waste our time creating web pages about our favourite things and waiting for other fans to join. Why? Because webdesigning is our passion but we can't be serious all the time. Confidentially, it's mainly because we have no social life. But let's keep this a secret. Happy navigation, mates.
