Today, with bed being the only reasonable place to be (on account of lack of heater in household), this is the most perfect thing and rides the wave of my music related posts of late.
The Morning Benders cover Fleetwood Mac, Randy Newman, The Cardigans and Talking Heads to name a few. You can score the whole album for free too. So get on it.

Sharon Van Etten makes "bittersweet neofolk so slow, spare and subtle that you might have to crane your neck to hear it..."
I listen to music (among other things e.g. the leaking shower head) while I should be sleeping. Then I try not to post it here but some slip through.

The run is a part of the woman's life. she is enjoying it. the man expects the woman to want to get in. after all, she likes him, and they have run into each other at 4am. it's serendipity. isn't it?
A lot of women would get in the car.
Taking the same slice of rock n' roll pie as the Black Keys, Mount Carmel's three members (twin brothers and young buck on drums) feast on raw music goodness.
Described by others as sounding "like a hi-fi Disraeli Gears or a modern Stonedhenge."
Self described as "blues".
Described by me as delicious.
I suggest you have a taste.

(I know you don't care for her much Mophead but I still like her and these stills.)

My friend once sent me a happy birthday from the future, or so he thought. Turns out he was just being foolish about world time zones and in fact sent it in the then present, which is now the past.

Posters by Jeremy Saunders.
I think I like the original (top), rush job, poster (according to Saunders' talk at Semi Permanent this year) probably more than the final one. The second one tends to remind me of The Sopranos, not that that's a bad thing, I actually really liked their DVD covers. It probably makes a whole lot of sense too, but since when did that make a difference?
Either way I'm looking forward to seeing the film.

I have just rediscovered a book I own of Beatles photographs. These aren't from it, but I like them all the same.
"In Brisbane the Beatles were pelted with eggs by male fans, perhaps jealous of the distraction the fab four were causing amongst their girlfriends. 'In our country we usually have eggs for breakfast.' Ringo said. One of the egg throwing ringleaders commented, 'We just wanted to see if they could take it.'
'Of course we could take it, but I like mine scrambled on toast. The other three like theirs fried - right, George?' replied Ringo."
Might post actual pictures from the book later.

Mophead: I dont need to become loud and obnoxious just happy and gently swaying
Poppit: Yea free loving and what not.
Off to spend 3 days sitting in cafes (licensed) reading books and magazines and staying warm. Perhaps dancing in some alleys. And summing it up with a great performance at The Australian Burlesque Fest. Thats it. Thats all I want. That and maybe a lover.

"Learning new skills doesnt suit you, you will continually waste your time perfecting things you are naturally completely hopeless at. Give up now or forever withhold your frustration." - Wise words from someone who knows.
