Found this on vices site. The photos are pretty mint so you should go check them out.

In the summer of 2008, photographer Pieter-Jan De Pue sent us an email asking if he could give Vice’s contact information to the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan in the hope of securing an assignment to be embedded with American troops there. He had been to Afghanistan the year before, but since that trip didn’t end so well (after getting lost in the mountains, he was imprisoned, first by the Chinese Army on suspicion of being an American Air Force spy and later by tribal militia on suspicion of being al-Qaida), he was looking for a more secure way to travel the country and shoot his stories. Going on a trip with a group of guys who are part of the best-trained army in the world seemed like the safest option. He was granted access and embedded with an American unit working alongside the Afghan National Army (ANA). Two days into his assignment, the platoon was ambushed. The lieutenant was killed and four other soldiers were either injured or went nuts and had to be sent home. Lesson: It’s never safe in Afghanistan.

Shameless plug

Please go and add this as it is my blog for university and I need all the help I can get. :)

Why is it when ever you end up going out for a quiet drink you end up in Soho at 4am downing 4 whiskeys at a time? My head hates me today.

Brand New

If you know me at all you know that I am obsessed in a slightly scary way with brand new.

Well I haven't listened to the album in about a month and I'm playing there songs again and I just needed to gush as they are fantastic.

LUCA - Brand New

Does anyone know where I can get this song. Only copy I've found is an album that is being sold for over $100. I love them. It's Milk - Knife song but I want the album as this is the only track on youtube.

I haven't heard this song in about a year but it is one of my favourites. Straylight Run - Existentialism on prom night.

Drug Laws

There's all these stories about esctacy being down graded and whatever.
I agree with that it should be and actually that all drugs should be legalized and controlled as it would cut crime risks and health risks but that's another thing..

A friend of mine last week got sent down for three and a half years for drug dealing,fair enough you could say but I do not see how this is fair when a man who killed a friend of mine two years ago only got two and a half years in prison.

Sort it out law.

I'm planning a trip to Asia in the Summer and it's got me all excited.
I have an issue I have about 4 months off over the Summer basically from the end of May until the end of September. I would love to go away for the whole 4 months but that would be silly.
I have Benicassim festival in Spain on the 10 until the 24th July. Right smack bang in the middle of all this. So here is where I'm stuck do I go from late May to the beginning of July or do I go from the end of July until the end of September. I'm basically just gonna figure out which one gives me more time/will be cheaper.
Either way I'm very excited.

The Gaslight Anthem

There is one band taking all my love at the moment that that is The Gaslight Anthem. I love them I love them and his awesome voice.

As Britain cannot deal with the slightest bit of snow the last couple of days have been a bit boring but I did make a snowman for the first time. We named it Rasputin after the Russian weather that brought us this snowstorm.

Just another thought the weather and the TV have been saying for days before all this snow that the weather will be insane why didn't they grit the roads or take any precautions?

EDIT: Two songs I can't stop listening to today. Sage Francis vs Dashboard Confessional. Legion Of Doom remix. Sage Francis fucking rules.

"Friendly Fires a funny word like Civil War"

Also Frank Turner - Reasons Not To Be An Idiot
