“I would tell women not to be afraid to be smart and strong and all those things I want for my daughters. There are always these articles about what men want, but I guarantee you any man worth his salt wants those things above everything.”—
“I have a habit of wanting to rescue people from their boring wretched wasted lives and thrust them into enlightened forms of existence, sparkling and drenched in sun glares, but I really should stop assuming people want or need to be saved in the first place. I seem to think that no one has thought to search for secrets in a forest, or found redemption in the windows rolled down, hands making tidal waves of air currents and weather patterns rushing by. It’s like i want to think nobody knows about the brilliance found in barren beaches in winter, or what it’s like to lose your heart and eyesight in the blur of carnival lights. It’s like I want to be this magic girl who takes you back to playgrounds at night and makes you stand on the edges of bridges overlooking dried up canals and expects you to feel something, but maybe you don’t feel anything, and that’s not your fault, but mine, for wanting you to so badly. I want to teach everyone to waltz in dusty light in dim basements, to come out of comas only because of the color of the sky, to run through corn fields and to know as their own the wilderness in the hearts of horses. But not everyone is banking on a wish, or walking on a dream, waiting for a line to be cast in their direction, not everyone writes messages on their hands or picks up strings off the ground, wears them around their wrists for secret meanings. Not every man who doesn’t wear his wedding ring has a reason not to do so, sometimes it’s just so your fingers don’t break.”
am a huge fan of Aidan’s and had the pleasure of making two records (the reindeer section) with him. this is his new stuff with the polymath bill wells. listen to the copper top, it is astonishing. both beautiful and devastating!
Great songs, except one of them I am having a problem with, call me old-fashioned. Aidan has such a cool, cool voice, it is this non-chalant/I-am-too-cool-to-care tone to it. Loved the instrumental songs at the end. I am such a sucker for the melodic guitars. Gorgeous.
I don’t remember who writes the music for Doctor Who (as evidenced by my makeshift title and composer). But this is the main theme for Doctor Eleven. And it makes everything more epic. I’m reorganizing my shoe rack right now, and it seems a million times more important than it would without the music.
Actually, I like a lot of the other music from the recent seasons more than the main theme. But here it is anyway. So go ahead. Eat your Doritos and feel like a big damn hero about it.
Doing dishes never seemed like such a life or death situation until I did them while listening to this. I’ve made the world safe once again… or at least provided my guests with clean glassware…
I’ve been unable to watch the new seasons of Dr Who. I miss the doctor, but, there is a certain doubt, do I really want to watch without David Tennant? To me, he is the perfect Dr. Anyway…this theme…wow! Gotta admit, I LOVE it!
0 - 32 = low (most people with Asperger Syndrome or high-functioning autism score about 20) 33 - 52 = average (most women score about 47 and most men score about 42) 53 - 63 is above average 64 - 80 is very high 80 is maximum
My score is: 21. I knew without this test that I’m socially awkward.
I got 39.
I got 33
I attained 59, Hooray…I wanted more!-Yarravillegirl..:-)
So, I saw this story yesterday on the daily what, and while it bothered me, I didn’t think much more about it til I saw them talking about it on the Today Show this morning. If you don’t know, and don’t feel like reading the article, people (some people) are in an uproar over a…
I have no idea why this story has blown up as it has. Yesterday it was all over the tv. You know, funnily, I do get the JCrew catalogue at home and I saw the pic a few weeks ago, Jenna Lyons — the mother of the boy and JCrew’s Creative Director — mentions next to the pic that she is lucky because her boy’s favourite colour is pink. Now, if she were to be painting his toenails pink against his will, I would have a problem with it. But, this is something he obviously enjoys doing, so what is the harm?
I guess the commotion is all about the female/male expectations and mostly the fears of many parents that their kids might be gay. Whether by birth or environment. Sadly, it is still something — that is being gay — that many people see as not normal and there is still so much prejudice against it.
I say, children are children, we want them to be happy, healthy, well-adjusted and productive. Period. Anything else is irrelelvant.
One of my favourite bands. ‘Eagle*Seagull’ from Nebraska/USA. Their home is the melodramatic-popsong-house and I would list them in one row with ‘Stars’ from Canada. They have by the way particularly stunning neurotic songtitles and lyrics.

“The best thing about dreams is that fleeting moment, when you are between asleep and awake, when you don’t know the difference between reality and fantasy, when for just that one moment you feel with your entire soul that the dream is reality, and it really happened.”—
