I look around and realise that 2010 is being rather a rough year on relationships. Forgive me the euphemism - 2010 is being a bitch on relationships. So the few of you boys and girls who are still managing to keep your beloved ones - lock them in your bedroom somewhere, and do not let them out until January 1st, 2011. Of course, not everything is bad news. The summer has come at last - this ain't exactly a good new for me, as I care little about summer anyway, but I understand most people love it - and with a little luck we won't have any rain at all until the end of September (yeah, right). Portugal football team trampled North Korea, something both unexpected and uncalled for, but also rather beautiful and fun. Within one month, more or less, I'll be back on videogames at last (unless Blizzard fucks up and delays Starcraft II yet again). The National's gig is three weeks away. Radiohead are hopefully releasing a new album by the end of the year. And on August 2nd, Arcade Fire are releasing their third album, The Suburbs, and they promised to come for a gig in Portugal until the end of the year. So it doesn't look that bad after all, if we forget the love thing for just a bit.
