She can believe in the day when love was on a string :: video of the day

Valerie Loves Me :: Material Issue “Valerie’s riding, in a car around my neighboorhood, she’s thinking of all the men she’ll meet. I could only hope for a stolen moment of her thoughts, between the walk to the club, and all the drinks she’ll have in a crowded room, where everybody leaves too soon; I only hope that she remembers me.” Continue reading She can believe in the day when love was on a string :: video of the day

In the stillness of remembering :: Under the Covers Sunday

“Thunder only happens when its raining, players only love you when they’re playing. They say, women, they will come and they will go, when the rain washes you clean, you’ll know, you will know.” Dreams :: The Kills Memory, and the feelings and consequences of remembering, seem to be a pervading theme right now, to me.

I’ve got my mind made up now :: song of the day

Keep Art Alive :: “The Becomming” :: Art by Sarah Joncas “‘Cos I’ll be you and you’ll be me, there’s lots and lots for us to see, there’s lots and lots for us to do. She is electric, can I be electric, too?” It took me a long time to come around to Oasis. Some of this had to do with an ex who I associated the band and sound and songs to.

Then there was the persona of the brothers … Continue reading I’ve got my mind made up now :: song of the day
