It’s been such a long time since I’ve blogged. I was even part way through a blog post ages ago and never finished it. But don’t worry, I’m back now! And I’ll be sure to keep you updated about what is happening in my life – I already have a few plans for this year so 2014 is looking promising.

Since I last wrote a post I’ve done a couple of things: gone to a Black Veil Brides concert, queued outside RADA for half a day in the cold for the last epsiode of Cabin Pressure, watched a load of MI High (there is a new series!) and… well I think that’s about it really.

MeBut I’m back now, so expect more blogposts to be coming up soon!

Peace and love,


Life f Cowie magazine issue 2

Finally I have made the second issue of the Life Of Cowie magazine, which mainly contains recent posts reworded in various places, but I enjoy handing them out to people I know and want to keep my magazines going. It is quite a short issue, containing my recent stories about Three Days Grace, Evanescence and Cabin pressure, and also one of my school teachers and her baby and the winner of the life of Cowie drawing competition.

A link to the magazine is below:

So, after the hours of waiting for my video to upload (well, not really waiting. I sort of forgot that it was uploading) I put it onto YouTube.

I know that it isn’t very good quality, very stable filming or very clear, I still like it because it’s cool knowing I was there, know what I mean? Anyway, Lithium has been one of my favourite songs for quite a long time now, so it’s just a lucky coincidence that it was the one I randomly filmed (although I could probably have said the same about any other Evanescence song if I had filmed it. They’re all cool).

Well, here is my video. I could have attached it to the bottom of my last post, but thought that that one is long enough already and I did really want to do a separate post.


Hi guys.

Yesterday I went to see Evanescence at the Wembley Arena, London. It was amazing.

First of all it started off with the support acts, Lost Alone and The Used, but everyone was just waiting for Evanescence to come on. I took some pictures now and again, although they weren’t very good quality, as I was near the back and had to zoom in quite far.

Lost Alone

Lost alone started everything off, and I didn’t relly know of them (I don’t really listen to too much). They were quite alright.

The Used

On came the next support act, The Used. As I’d known that they were going to be there, I’d looked them up beforehand and recognised most of the songs they performed.

The Used

The Used weren’t bad, although I didn’t like all the swearing (call me old fashioned) but I really didn’t find it necessary. They left and then there was the anticipation for Evanescence to come on.


Then Evanescence came on the stage, with the song ‘What you want’ to start it off.


AAAH! I love Evanescence, and when Amy plays the piano, and sings… Amazing.


They added plenty of lighting on the stage during the performance, especially the Evanescence ones, so much that at points you couldn’t see the stage or were temporarily blinded… not good.


Amy spoke to the audience and thanked lots of countries for travelling to be there. Doesn’t she have an awesome dress?


Throughout the songs, each band member put their all into it. They were epic.


The lights that didn’t blind you were quite cool and I quite liked these lights.


There is something so great and unique about Evanescence and that is why I am a fan.


I still wonder how Amy managed to keep it all up, playing the piano and singing her songs, yet reaching the high notes.


And then Evanescence finished with the song ‘My Immortal,’ encouraging the audience to join in. At the end, there was a lot of confetti. Now, who doesn’t love a bit of confetti?


Finally, they said goodbye and there was a lot of cheering and clapping. Then Evanescence left the stage.

The End

I watched as the stage was cleared away, wanting to hear more, but that was the end. I thoroughly enjoyed myself there at Wembley Arena, and would love to see Evanescence again someday. Hopefully they’ll do another UK tour at some point.

I tried to upload a video I took of ‘Lithium’ onto YoutubeĀ  but it seems to want to take eight hours to upload. Never mind. šŸ˜¦


At long last, Transit Of Venus, the album by Three Days Grace, is out.

Released on 2nd October 2012, and after waiting for several months, I could finally listen to it. I’m glad to say that it was worth the wait. Three Days grace have been my favourite band for quite a long time now, and this album is equally epic to all their others. My personal favourite song from it at the momentĀ is High Road. I love the way Adam Gontier (the lead singer) putsĀ a lot of emotionĀ into his songs – this song especially. šŸ˜€

The tracks are as follows:

  1. Sign Of The Times
  2. Chalk Outline
  3. The High Road
  4. Operate
  5. Anonymous
  6. Misery Loves My Company
  7. Give In To Me
  8. Happiness
  9. Give Me A Reason
  10. Time That Remains
  11. Expectations
  12. Broken Glass
  13. Ā Unbreakable Heart

Only recently, I starred on the front of some music homework. Pretty cool, eh? I just wonder what the teacher thought…
