weekly music linkings



Today was the first rather nice day (full-out) I've experienced in a while. that is if you don't count the near-death experiences I had in the bathroom at ungodly hours this morning. don't you love those? like "I'm gonna die! I'm gonna die! I'll do things different this time!" and then you go back to sleep and wake up and are all like YAY SIN YAY DEBAUCHERY. Speaking of, I went to church for the first time last week since Christmas and enjoyed myself. weird.

so I sat in bed on what was the first truly gorgeous glorious physically flawless day of the year and listened to twee pop while I attempted to do homework. and it felt WONDERFUL.






"Is It Wicked Not to Care?"- Belle and Sebastian

Isobel Campbell, you broke my heart when you left B&S. although your stuff since then's been good. but really- if I had known about you when I was 13 I may still be playing the cello now.

"Gonna Make You Love Me"- Ryan Adams

I can't believe, for the record, Ryan Adams is married. and like retired from music? and Infinity Blues and yeah, yeah. although my tastes have developed since I was in tenth grade, I'll likely die a resolute Ryan Adams fan. Would it be so bad if him and new wifey Mandy Moore collaborated? I never minded her all that much. NOTHING BUT PENNIES IN MY POCKET HOW MUCH FO' YO LOVE??? wait, is that even her...?

"Mario's Cafe"- Saint Etienne

There's no prop for this song except I think I've killed listening to it. I'm not sure about Saint Etienne's other stuff. they're such a glamorous band, you know? and they seem so sophisticated to me. I don't think I'll ever be able to fully appreciate them, except when I'm on meth. which I haven't touched since October of 1998. but yeah: if I had to bring ten songs with me to a desert island to die on, this song would be on that list. most relaxing thing. and "Mario's Cafe" exists so visit it if you're ever in LDN!


I also have a livejournal, but it's no where near as fun as this these days. :) have a good week readers! and propz to Al, who is acting in an Agatha Christie play right now.

- Brittany




(the right note to close on)
I have a love, I have a love for this world
a kind of love that will break my heart
a kind of love that reconstructs and remodels the past
that adds a dryness to the dry August grass,
that adds the sunshine to the magnifying glass
and makes me fight for something that can't last.
"Into Eternity"- Jens Lekman

I met a boy this weekend that liked Jens Lekman as much as I did. I never know how to handle that, living in an area where most people are devoid of any musical taste (sry). I kind of want to territorially piss all over Jens.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
