• Haskell Moore: There is a natural order to this world, and those who try to upend it do not fare well. This movement will never survive; if you join them, you and your entire family will be shunned. At best, you will exist a pariah to be spat at and beaten-at worst, to be lynched or crucified. And for what? For what? No matter what you do it will never amount to anything more than a single drop in a limitless ocean.
  • Adam Ewing: What is an ocean but a multitude of drops?

This is still probably my favourite Sia song ever.

HOW MANY FATES TURN AROUND IN THE OVERTIME

BALLERINAS THAT HAVE FINS THAT YOU’LL NEVER FIND

YOU THOUGHT THAT YOU WERE THE BOMB 

YES WELL SO DID I

SAY YOU DON’T WANT IT

SAY YOU DON’T WANT IT

SAYYY YOU DON’T WANT IT

THIS CIRCUS WE’RE IN 

BUT YOU DON’T…

YOU DON’T REALLY MEAN IT

I’m still so in love with “Let England Shake” - it’s oddly become somewhat of a summertime album for me. This is possibly my favourite song on that album still. 

What they’re going for is a total deconstruction of one of rock’s most canonical classics. Is it still “Satisfaction” if you subtract the drums, the guitar riff, and most of the vocal melody? Maybe not. But it’s a crafty idea to sing a song about nonconformity by defying all conventions, including the song’s own conventions for itself. And if there’s anything Björk and PJ Harvey do have in common as female solo artists, it’s that they’ve both unflaggingly flipped the bird to rules written by men, musical or otherwise.

It’s as if, after laughing about their sparkly heart clippies over a pint, they signed their contracts with their fingers crossed behind their backs. Oh, you want us to sing the official second-favorite song of white maledom? About how upset a man is that women won’t sleep with him? Well, all right. But you may not like what you hear.

No word of a lie, this scene made me well up. It’s a great song, but the juxtaposition with the hospital scene really worked. 

What’s going on with Glee being good again? 

I’m not going to admit how many times I’ve listened to this cover of Wuthering Heights since I first heard it a few years back. 

Just had an espresso here and it’s become an instant favourite new café here in Galway. Obviously not a day for sitting outside.
