You Are Home :: Video killed the radio star

List your favorite music videos courtesy of Music Listography : Your Life In (Play)Lists Editor’s Note :: Although I am much more of a music and album fan, I am a product of the MTV generation, and it did come around during my damn “formative years”.

Damn, Sam :: songs and poetry

Losing Rain Drops (by me) A case of misguided identity, packed nicely, side by side, with breath mints, extra socks, a bottle of jasmine oil, pointy shoes, masks, and expectation. She waits in the rain, the buses come and go, her name dripping off strands, of hair, of time, of wishing and waiting. Her ankles turn in, she is tip toes, and weak knees, deliberation, up down up down up and down, down again. Dance with unrequited life, love. The car pulls up, around the bend. His assault is silent, her resistance, like gossamar wings, tearing. Somewhere there are bells, … Continue reading Damn, Sam :: songs and poetry

God only knows what I’d do without you :: Soundtrack Shout Out Wednesday

My Life Without Me :: Soundtrack Shout Out An uplifting, thought provoking story about death that speaks more about life, My Life Without Me reminds me somewhat of Akira Kurosawa’s Ikiru, and to some extent, Frank Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life. It is the often told, and re-told, tale about living life to the fullest when one feels their life is at the twilight of the end, and about how we learn to focus on our dreams, our desires, and what and who matter most when we face mortality. This is not necessarily a new tale, but it is beautifully … Continue reading God only knows what I’d do without you :: Soundtrack Shout Out Wednesday

You said something that I’ve never forgotten :: song of the day

“We lean against railings,  describing the colours,  and the smells of our homelands,  acting like lovers.  How did we get here?  To this point of living?  I held my breath,  and you said something.” Have you ever truly noticed the immense power of words? How something can be said, even a few syllables, in person, in a letter, typed, written, whispered, bled, and everything can just change, or everything can stay the same, go on, or not. But those words, no matter how you try to set them free, they live in the deep folds of your skin, in the … Continue reading You said something that I’ve never forgotten :: song of the day
