Spicing up your life

The Mountain Goats - No Children
In my life, I hope I lie,
and tell everyone you were a good wife.
And I hope you die,
I hope we both die.


Etta James - At Last
Oh, yeah, at last
The skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up in clovers
The night I looked at you


George Harrison - Got My Mind Set On You
It's gonna take time
A whole lot of precious time
Its gonna take patience and time, ummm
To do it, to do it, to do it, to do it, to do it,
To do it right child


Lila Downs - Tengo Miedo de Quererte
Tengo miedo de quererte
por la distancia que veo en tus ojos
Estás tan cerca de mi en todo momento,
que ya no siento mi corazón

A Giant Golden Radio

nada surf: blonde on blonde



cats and dogs are coming down
14th street is gonna drown
everyone else rushing round
i’ve got blonde on blonde
on my portable stereo
it’s a lullaby
from a giant golden radio
i’ve got no time i wanna lose
to people with something to prove
what can you do but let them talk
and make your way down the block
i’ve got blonde on blonde
on my portable stereo
it’s a lullaby
from a giant golden radio
it’s a lullaby
from wonder-woman’s radio

Once I Wanted To Be

Here is a sample of one of my favourite bands. I love Chan Marshall even more than Jenny Lewis and I want to hold her.

Chan Marshall stops time. She sits at a piano or lays her guitar across her lap, and whether it’s a noisy club overflowing with drunks or a coffee house full of laptoppers, Chan Marshall draws all the attention in the room and makes the world stop spinning. As Cat Power, Marshall’s music seems to rise from nowhere, envelop the room, then vanish; listeners know they’ve been hit by something but they’re not sure what.
-suprisingly wanky review from Matador



Cat Power: Wonderwall
Backbeat the word was on the street
That the fire in your heart is out
I'm sure you've heard it all before
But you never really had a doubt
I don't believe that anybody feels
The way I do about you now

This is intriguing, and makes me want to weep more than PostSecret.


Cat Power: I Found A Reason
Oh I do believe
In all the things you say
What comes is better than what came before

And you'd better come come, come come to me
Better come come, come come to me
Better run, run run, run run to me
Better come



This is a Velvet Underground cover, and is beautiful.


Cat Power: The Greatest
Melt me down
into big black armour
Leave no trace
Of grace
Just in your honor
Lower me down
TO CULPRIT SOUTH
Make 'EM WASH A SPACE IN TOWN
FOR THE LEAD
AND THE DREGS OF MY BED
I'VE BEEN SLEEPING
Lower me down
PIN ME IN
Secure the grounds
For the later parade


This is not, but is still beautiful and classic.


And finally, Cat Power: Keep On Runnin'
When will you do what you say you’ll do?
How could you really do it?
Why you keep on running?
Baby settle down
Why you keep on running?
You'll lose your home
Why you keep on running?
Baby settle down
Why you keep on running?
Run on, run on. You’ll rule your den.

Crawlin black spider baby
Crawlin black spider
Got me to crawl on baby with the grass was very high
Just keep on crawlin till the day I die


I played this song on repeat the first time I heard it, haunted.



Sorry about my incoherence, but it's been a rough weekend.

Love always,
Your Procrastinating Mod.

"g'day again.
just 'cause i know most of you like all that mp3-sharing-type-thing, there's a couple of links i'd like to share.
first. the brian jonestown massacre (mainly anton newcombe, known to most people as 'the crazy guy from DiG') have free mp3s of their work on their website. as far as what to download goes, everything on 'bravery, repitition and noise' is fuckin' fantastic.
second. i don't know if any of you have heard of them, but can were a very influentual german group in the seventies. they're very experimental, and their best album has been posted online by someone, i don't know who. they're all pretty big tracks, so i'd recommend downloading 'paperhouse' first. it's only 10mbs.
third. there's a useful tool for finding mp3s on the net that i found, it's called g2p.org. it's pretty good."

Thought I would share! :)

PS - The BJM site has heaps of other artists' random tracks as well!

Sing For The Astronauts



TODAY'S THEME:
THE POLICE!




Metric: "The Police & The Private"
Get straight and wait here while I try to find the exit sign
When will you stop asking strangers, no one wants what we want
Keep one eye on the door, keep one eye on the bag
Never expect to be sure who you're working for

You're working for the police and the private, the pilots and the pirates
Fingerprinted waiting for the train
The doctor, the writer, the hairdresser,
Felt up and fingerprinted waiting for the train

Lord lord mother we are all losing love
Lord listen lover we are all missing mama
Lord lord mother we are all losing love
Lord listen lover we are all missing something I don't got
 
Radiohead: "Karma Police"
Karma police, arrest this man, he talks in maths
He buzzes like a fridge, hes like a detuned radio
Karma police, arrest this girl, her hitler hairdo, is making me feel ill
And we have crashed her party
This is what you get, this is what you get
This is what you get, when you mess with us

Karma police, Ive given all I can, its not enough
Ive given all I can, but were still on the payroll
This is what you get, this is what you get
This is what you get, when you mess with us
And for a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself
And for a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself
For a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself
 
The Clash: "Police & Thieves"
Police and thieves in the streets - Oh yeah!
Scaring the nation with their guns and ammunition
Police and thieves in the street - Oh yeah!
Fighting the nation with their guns and ammunition

From Genesis to Revelation
The next generation will be hear me
From Genesis to Revelation
The next generation will be hear me

Scaring, fighting the nation
Shooting, shooting their guns and ammunition

Police, police, police and thieves oh yeah
Police, police, police and thieves oh yeah
Here come, here come, here come
The station is bombed
Get out get out get out you people
If you don't wanna get blown up
 
NWA: "Fuck Tha' Police"
Right about now, NWA court is in full effect.
Judge Dre presiding in the case of NWA versus the police department.
Prosecuting attourneys are MC Ren, Ice Cube, and Eazy muthafuckin E.
Order, order, order. Ice Cube, take the muthafuckin stand.
Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth
and nothin but the truth so help your black ass?
Why don't you tell everybody what the fuck you gotta say?

Fuck tha police
Comin straight from the underground
Young nigga got it bad cuz I'm brown
And not the other color so police think
They have the authority to kill a minority

Fuckin with me cuz I'm a teenager
With a little bit of gold and a pager
Searchin my car, lookin for the product
Thinkin every nigga is sellin narcotics
 
Sendspace have a really neat multiple upload thingy. It meets my approval, so it must be good!

Ciao! ^_^
