Destination of your lonesome speed :: songs and poetry

Keep Art Alive :: “Highway Honeymoon” :: Art by Kelly Haigh Unsent (by me) Forgotten Saturdays, yesterdays, lemonade stand driveways, and sidewalk chalk bubblegum flavoured, never ways. She tangles daisy chains and grass stains, late night coin operated washing machine, dreams. She asks the mislead Father Time, why has the moon gone bad, again? Bounce the ball, pick up the jacks, one by two by three by four. Finding answers in the skinned knee boy, kissed chapped lips like love, with rose bush scratch scars, bloodletting , (un)happy endings. She wonders where he left the remnants of a daughter, hair … Continue reading Destination of your lonesome speed :: songs and poetry

Pulp Fiction :: Monday Movie Moment :: Ensemble movies I love

Pulp Fiction (1994) “I do believe Marsellus Wallace, my husband, your boss, told you to take ME out and do WHATEVER I WANTED. Now I wanna dance, I wanna win. I want that trophy, so dance good.” ~ Mia Wallace Pulp Fiction in many ways has become iconic in a way that most of us remember certain scenes and images more than we recall the film in its entirety. I would guess that there are even those who have never seen the film who feel as if they almost have because of the iconic nature of it.

Snow Patrol :: Eyes Open :: My Favorite Albums

Eyes Open (2006) :: Snow Patrol This album still stings of love lost and the shards and splinters that breaking apart from someone leaves within.

Truth is, though, I do love this album so very much. Occasionally I stumble upon one of the songs, and when it comes, be it in the middle of a sunlit day, or bouncing off the city lights in a night sky, … Continue reading Snow Patrol :: Eyes Open :: My Favorite Albums

And its one life and its this life and its beautiful :: video of the day

Hard Believer :: First Aid Kit “Well, I see you’ve got your bible, your delusion imagery. Well, I don’t need your eternity, or your meaning to feel free. I just live because I love to, and that’s enough you see. So, don’t come preach about morality, that’s just human sense to me.” Continue reading And its one life and its this life and its beautiful :: video of the day

I wish I was both young and stupid :: song of the day

“I could follow you and search the rubble,  or stay right here and save myself some trouble,  or try to keep myself from seeing double.  Or, I could make a killing.” Being alive is such a jangly reality. All of us, each of us, we are so full of addictions and habits, even when we don’t acknowledge them, even when our habits are socially acceptable, even if they are what we call personality flaws, we are full of them. Here we are, each of us full of these holes, coming together, leaking out through the edges. I am beginning to see … Continue reading I wish I was both young and stupid :: song of the day
