Midnight blues, keeps on calling :: SOTD

Keep Art Alive :: “Już tylko cisza” :: Art by Wlodzimierz Kuklinski “I just can’t help but feel a little bit shamed, every time I hear you calling my name. I’m blaming you for all the bad things I’ve done. Still, I will admit that every once in a while, it was fun.” Laney’s past midnight life, some might say it had gotten away from her, or gotten the better of her, or one of those judgey, said with a wag of the finger and squinted eyes kind of sayings, all mixed up with the folly of youth and a heaping … Continue reading Midnight blues, keeps on calling :: SOTD

Three years of Lyriquediscorde

Today marks the 3rd year anniversary of Lyriquediscorde. Over the 3 years there have been changes, and there have been constants, music being the overall constant, as it has been in my life. I wanted to do something to celebrate the date, had half considered doing “Top 3” lists to both signify the 3rd year, and my love of list making, but instead I decided to do something a little bit different, and a lot musical. Following is a list of “favorite” songs that lined up together spell out Lyriquediscorde. Thank you to all of you have have followed this … Continue reading Three years of Lyriquediscorde

You only know what I want you to :: SOTD

“I wish you’d hold me when I turn my back, the less I give the more I get back. Oh your hands can heal, your hands can bruise, I don’t have a choice, but I’d still choose you.” Miles and markers, detours and deserts and chain-linked fences, and all that water, they all choose to separate, to deviate, to dissect us into pieces and parcels of nothing at all. We stood on a platform once, waiting on late in the night arrivals, wishing into the freezing over winds whipping my scarf up, up, and around you, linking us, locking us, … Continue reading You only know what I want you to :: SOTD

I’ll Be You :: The Replacements from the album, Don’t Tell a Soul I’ll Be You was the lead single from The Replacements’ seventh studio album Don’t Tell a Soul in 1989, and was written by lead singer Paul Westerberg. It became the band’s first and only Billboard Hot 100 appearance, peaking at # 51 and reaching the top of both the album rock and modern rock charts. Don’t Tell a Soul was a stylistic change from their previous albums when released in 1989. Where Tim and Pleased to Meet Me could be classified as alternative or punk, this album was more of a straightforward rock album. Reviewers noted the music’s more … Continue reading Lonely, I guess that’s where I’m from :: VOTD

A day (or a few) in the haunting of the Lambert family vs. the never-ending :: Saturday Horror Movies

Saturday Night Horror Movies :: Insidious Chapter 2 (2013) and The Monkey’s Paw (2013) Well, it’s been awhile readers, since we held a Saturday Night Horror Movie Double Feature evening, so to kick the year off with what we hope to have as a twice monthly night and next day review, we chose two rather recent movies: one a sequel from a favorite horror writer/director of mine, and the other,  a “made for cable” re-telling of the short story/parable touting the proverbial “be careful what you wish for” warning. Our first film choice was a rollicking, jump-scare filled fun follow-up (ending?) … Continue reading A day (or a few) in the haunting of the Lambert family vs. the never-ending :: Saturday Horror Movies
