FLTS Fridays :: I had a bottle and a pen in my hand

The Kids Are Ready To Die :: The Airborne Toxic Event "All these days just seem like they're getting longer. The view from our room is a gloomy and overcast grey. The weakness we left behind seems to be getting stronger. I swear there's something in the air, and I don't know what anyone could … Continue reading FLTS Fridays :: I had a bottle and a pen in my hand

I’ll show them to you :: Video of the day

Lay Lady Lay :: Magnet and Gemma Hayes I love newly discovered covers, and I love the mixed vocals of male meets female. A well-done duet has always been a favorite of mine, and I have actually had discussions with other musical friends about dream duet pairings. There is something about the pairing of Even … Continue reading I’ll show them to you :: Video of the day

And I will rise up with fists :: Song of the day

“What are you changing? Who do you think you’re changing? You can’t change things, we’re all stuck in our ways.” I could probably choose the entire Rabbit Fur Coat album as a favorite, and it would definitely be part of my favorite album list, because pretty much every song on the album resonates deeply with … Continue reading And I will rise up with fists :: Song of the day

The 80’s :: I light my torch and wave it

Video Killed the Radio Star :: Duran Duran :: New Moon on Monday If one band was chosen to represent my teenage years it would be, without a doubt, Duran Duran.

It can’t be that bad :: Video of the day

If It Makes You Happy :: Sheryl Crow I am in love with the lyrical refrains in this song (love lines like "listen to Coltrane, derail your own train"), the spirit of the chorus, and the intensity of the video. The use of color, camera shots and Sheryl's animal prints all add to the power … Continue reading It can’t be that bad :: Video of the day

I need love :: Song of the day

“I need love, not some sentimental prison. I need god, not the political church. I need fire, to melt the frozen sea inside me. I need love.” In 1994 I’d come to a crossroads in my life, of sorts. Well, one of the handful of “crossroads” I have had, so far. I had a failed marriage … Continue reading I need love :: Song of the day

I’ll take you down the only road I’ve ever been down :: Soundtrack Shout Out Wednesday

One of my favorite soundtracks from the 90's comes from one of my favorite movies from the 90's, Cruel Intentions, a twist on the French novel, Les Liasons Dangeureuses, told in this version from the lens of the uppercrust, rich teenagers with too many excesses, not enough consequence, and too much time on their hands. … Continue reading I’ll take you down the only road I’ve ever been down :: Soundtrack Shout Out Wednesday
