Not a lyrically magnificent song, but I enjoy his voice.

I get in these moods and I listen to New Order for hours and hours. I would not complain of my wounded heart.

Regret )

Ditto Talking Heads. )

And I know it ages me, even if this was actually slightly before the time I was allowed to listen to music. My parents were pretty into censorship, but, hey, I still turned out okay. They now engage in praying for my soul daily.

For reasons I cannot fathom, I've got me some Babooshka in my head right now.

You're welcome? ♥ Kate Bush, though she is not great at lip syncing.

Got my first paycheck. Holy guacamole, I did not miss state income taxes. (I knew this would be the case, so any time I saw an ad for a job across the river in a no-income-tax state, I totally went for it.) All told, I had $500 yoinked out of my check for various and sundry. We only get paid monthly, so it's gonna be interesting to see how I can budget this and how much will come out of a full paycheck. I ... really hate monthly pay.

^Stand up and dance. You know you want to grab yer partner and dos-à-dos or whatever.

Also, my emails are acting kind of funny, so if you haven't heard from me on that venue and think you should have - not ignoring, just having computer errors.

I learned that Dixie the Smarty and mud do not get along well. Almost got myself stranded by pulling off the road into a camouflaged mudpit. But these horses were very sweet and I am quite certain they expected some apples from me.

Some not-really-new new Foals

I guess I have a thing for Yannis Philippakis' voice.

Because it seems like this world is a hot, horrible mess lately.

Took a road trip today because reasons. ;) I'm not fond of spending four hours in a car, but now that I have a car to spend four hours in, I recall that I'm totally a car singer. (Only when I'm alone. Lawd, I love music but I am not musical.)

Heard this song on the foggy way home. It was foggy when I left as well. Fog sandwich.

And I was a kid again. You and me goin' fishin' in the dark, lying on our backs and countin' the stars... <3

Also, penguin highway!

And HiP said she's going to pay me $28/hr to "consult" while I'm willing. OKAY. Even at extremely part time, that's not bad.

*forehead slap* I thought the vitamins I was taking were multi. They're not. They're just calcium. So, I've been mopey for the jobless reason, but it's been compounded by anemia. I has a brain.

Also, I woke up with this song in my head.

And H50 was fantastic last night and the night before. More like that, please.

Joined the Spring Fling and also sd_ldws, the former is yay! The latter I'm wondering what the hell, because drabbles aren't really my thing.

Have you ever fallen madly in love with an artist and it's hot and heavy for a good long while, and then you move on without realizing it? Then, one day, you discover them again and you remember, yes, this music cuts still cuts right through to your soul.

Hello, Ray LaMontagne. I'm sorry I abandoned you for a while, there.

See also: David Gray.

We have no concern, under the hem of the night. I have no idea what it means, but it's evocative anyway.

This song gets stuck in my head every. single. time. I hear it, especially Mary Lambert's vocals.

HiP started a fire in her office this morning. Well, technically, she didn't do it - electrical - but she had this forty year old space heater she was using (yes, I know what month it is and what hemisphere I'm in; she might not). What this means is that power to her office and J's has been cut, making mine the only usable space in the department today. J has to do payroll, so I have no clue what I'll do while she does that.

Also, the smell is horrendous. I know what I'll do! Reorder my migraine medication.

Have a song.

I have no idea why I love it so.

This morning, a man on the bus tried to kill me with his cologne. It is not necessary to bathe in the stuff, folks.

I need to learn how to swim. I need to find a place that has lessons for adults that experience increased heart rates at the very thought of water deeper than her ample hips. Seriously, it's a goal for me to get off this rock sometime soon and take an actual vacation. Might visit my nephew in Hawai'i, since he's stationed there and stuff and is such a sweet kid he'd actually welcome a visit from his old auntie.

But water fucking terrifies me, you all. Most places seem to offer beginner lessons, but I want a place that actually says they understand the fear involved. You can't just plop me in water and expect me to learn when I'm in panic mode.

Used a henna/indigo blend this weekend. It looks pretty much the same as the Lush product I've been using, but I think I like it better. I don't miss the clumps of cocoa butter, that's for sure. I'm also reaching that "at peace with my hair" stage, which I have to achieve after every cut. I don't want to break up with my stylist, but she's starting to make my hair not cute and I have serious hair vanity.

Hair! )

Outdoors, it probably appears much redder. Hard to tell. We've lost our sunny days again.

Also, song.

Annnd, I think I've found a new artist to follow.

KEXP is doing their top 90.3 songs of 2012 today. If you like indie and/or a good variety, check it out for a day full of (mostly) good music!

They started out with a song that should have been higher up, IMO, but I've a weird thing for Devotchka I know most don't share BUT SHOULD. ;)

Don't click play if you don't like PJ Harvey.

Random song in head. Don't know why, can't get it out.

Attempted gluten-free baking yesterday. Was an unmitigated disaster. Fed cupcakes to Upstairs People anyway.

The song's from a commercial, yes. Every time it comes on, it makes me get up and dance.

Now I must to bed, for morning will be upon me too soon.
