Untouchable face

Another Ani Difranco song I know but I just found it apt for this moment in life( I of course am not going to tell you why) But I'm quite sure every woman has one of these men in her life.

Raeesa introduced me to this song a while ago and after that I've been systematic about it and listening to all her albums. Untouchable face is from the album dilate and was released in 1996. It has some other interesting stuff on it too like joyful girl and dilate. Listen to it when you have the time. I'm posting the lyrics because they are just so great! enjoy!

I found this video quite randomly and think it's quite nice.

think i'm going for a walk now
i feel a little unsteady
i don't want nobody to follow me
'cept maybe you
i could make you happy you know
if you weren't already
i could do a lot of things
and i do

tell you the truth i prefer
the worst of you
too bad you had to have a better half
she's not really my type
but i think you two are forever
and i hate to say it but
you're perfect together

so fuck you
and your untouchable face
and fuck you
for existing in the first place
and who am i
that i should be vying for your touch
and who am i
i bet you can't even tell me that much

two-thirty in the morning
and my gas tank will be empty soon
neon sign on the horizon
rubbing elbows with the moon
a safe haven of sleepless
where the deep fryer's always on
radio is counting down
the top 20 country songs
and out on the porch the fly strip is
waving like a flag in the wind
y'know, i don't look forward
to seeing you again soon
you'll look like a photograph of yourself
taken from far far away
and i won't know what to do
and i won't know what to say

except fuck you...

i see you and i'm so perplexed
what was i thinking
what will i think of next
where can i hide
in the back room there's a lamp
that hangs over the pool table
and when the fan is on it swings
gently side to side
there's a changing constellation
of balls as we are playing
i see orion and say nothing
the only thing i can think of saying

is fuck you...

A long silence

These past few months have just been so completely hectic that I haven't had time to post anything. I do however regret having ever not continued this blog. Sorry about that.

Its been a time of disappointment and happiness a lot of my favourite musicians have released new albums(most of them very bad) and I've been trying to keep in touch.

Gorillaz launched their new album Empire ants in march this year and was conceived from an unfinished Gorillaz project called Carousel.  It features guest appearances by several artists, including Snoop DoggGruff RhysBobby WomackMos DefLou ReedMick Jones, and the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble

I'm not sure if I like this album but what caught my eye was a song featuring Little Dragon. I've mentioned the band earlier and love their music. One can essentially put this song into two parts; the latter being the more exciting bit. I can't put my finger on it but there is something about this song that I really like! What I'm asking is for you to listen to it before making up your mind.
