i have quite fallen for this song. in the early early summer when i was first introduced to joanna newsom’s music i was unsure what i thought of it. it has taken a while for it to grow on me but this song just about makes me love her – even if i admittedly now nothing much of her. There’s also something that i love very much about old, amateur looking homevideos. espicially when set to music. kind of makes my heart flutter

Catherine told me that just because it’s Jorma doesn’t automatically make it funny. I THINK SHE’S WRONG.
(okay i admit, it isn’t actually funny. i just lovelove him!)
I don’t really listen to Little Joy much anymore but I can’t stop at the moment. I’m in one of those moments where I feel like they’ve gotten it completely right. It’s like they reached into my mind and came out with these pretty songs/accurate songs:
I wish it was possible for a song to be real life. I don’t really know how that would even happen but it should. Either that or I wish it could be possible to share songs with every person that you want to and for it to be possible that they love and feel it just as much as you.
Does this make sense?
have you ever had a song, that is perpetually stuck in your head? you sing it under your breath from time to time when you think no one is close enough to hear you, but whoever is near by probably isn’t totally out of ear shot either. you find yourself humming it while doing some monotonous task. you haven’t heard it in forever but there it is, stuck in your head. sometimes it’s there playing over and over while trying to write a final exam or while trying to think of something important.
for me, this is that song
that song among a few others. but mainly that one. don’t ask me why, because i wouldn’t be able to say. i haven’t watched cinderella in many many years but that song is always in my head. i hum it while drying dishes, i sing it while at work. i like it a lot
well, i know that there’s been a lot of fuss over all of weezer’s albums post maladroit, and i generally don’t like to discriminate every album by a band when they begin to sound differently, but i have to say it: raditude (in name and content) is half terrible. i DO, however, like their song “(if you’re wondering if i want you to) i want you to”. i was happy upon listening to this song but the song that follows it on the album has put me off from listening to the album on my own free will. oh well, it happens right? i still love this band and i still love the red album, even if it is deemed to be terrible!
i think it probably has a lot to do with the fact that on the red album rivers cuomo isn’t the only singer and the fact that his lyrics don’t really seem to be focused on how unhappy he can be with life/all about girls. i don’t know if that statement really makes sense to anybody but i guess a change in attitude equals a change in style. duuuh.
i mean, come on. they had a video that featured the muppets. clearly they’re going to be cool forever and always!
so, mike gave me the new zelda “spirit tracks” game for christmas. i think it’s waay better than the phantom hourglass. except there’s way too many cut scenes and the train takes forever to get from destination to destination. that is my only criticism!
One of my favourite things about not being in class is sitting at home, watching Turner Classic Movies all day.
Today Meet Me in St. Louis came on. I always consider that movies to be a Christmas movie, even though it’s not. My family and I always watch it around Christmas time, so I guess that’s why.
I love love love watching TCM mostly just to see the amazing costumes in a lot of these movies. I wish I could find a good, clear picture of what Judy Garland is wearing during “The Trolley Song”. Go to more for a the clearest picture I could find a clip from the movie.
I’m abandoning the seventies journal in favour of a series of decade journals instead! This one is on music. My taste in music has recently taken a bit of a bizarre turn so I am going to try to stay consistent with what I’ve listened to for the most part of this decade.
I am also going to limit myself to the things that have been released over the past ten years. I never realised how limiting that would be until I actually did it. It was going to be ten albums, but I got lazy. I also hope you notice the decrease in the quality of what I’ve written about each.
In no particular order:
I know that it’s only December 15th and it’s probably a little early to think of New Years and everything but I decided to create a few lists of things that I liked from 2009. Yeah, that’s right.
I guess this song is pretty applicable to everyone right now.
Everyone should check out Gray Matter, Moss Icon, Embrace and, of course, Rites of Spring [probably my absolute favourite band, I never ever ever get sick of them in spite of their fairly small discography]. You can read more about Revolution Summer here.
On the upside, it’s snowing out today. I like the transition between Fall and Winter more than any season.
And because I love positivity so much, I’m going to share my favourite Anne Sexton poem in more. In all seriousness, I think it’s quite beautiful.
