My Newest Obsession

Blacklight poster art of the 1960s and 70s has always been entertaining to me. But recently- I've become obsessed! Check out some of these choice works of insane art!!! They both confuse and amuse me. I'll be posting more in the coming months as I group & categorize them all...stay tuned.

This Is Love

One of my favorite artists- PJ Harvey. Her music has been an enormous part of my life over the last 15 years. And she writes some of the most poignant love songs of any modern musician, in my humble opinion. Enjoy some PJ...

Lay and Love

I think this video is both weird and sweet. Just like Bonnie Prince Billy. And just like my favorite kind of romances...

I Used To Love Her...

Here's a golden oldie gem from the 80s. This was the best footage I could find of the Guns N' Roses that I remember & loved back in middle school. All the other videos for this song just kinda weirded me out...wonder what talk show this perfomed this on? Love the lead-in intro, too...

Stay sick!

Ughhh...I am miserably ill. Caught the evil dreaded coughing/fever/walking nightmare that seems to be going around. On top of that- had a little spill & royally f*cked up my back. So I'm currently a bent over, shuffling, sniffling, sweating, miserable excuse for a human. And blog postings do not take precedence over the 14 hrs of sleep a day I seem to need. Sorry.

Since I'm sick- I thought I'd post something that might make all of you sick, too. So here's an old Meatloaf video- with Cher, no less. Now you can call me names- but I still think that Bat Out of Hell is one of the best albums of my misty-eyed youth & I STILL listen to it, karaoke it & know every word to every song. But everything else the Loaf has done since is dead to me (barring his acting career- which I respect). I don't know what album this came from- but it is not what I call classic Meatloaf, despite the fact that he is wearing his signature ruffle tux shirt & carrying his little red hankie. And is it just me or is Cher's make-up so metallic that she kinda looks like a slutty robot? This is pretty much everything bad about the 80s all wrapped up in one excruciating duet. It is bad. Maybe so bad, it's good? You decide...check out Dead Ringer For Love.

Love Needs A Heart

Love Hangover

I have a hangover- so this seemed appropriate. And weird. I also feel weird. Enjoy!

Love Will Tear Us Apart

Today's video is inspired by the fact that I watched 24 Hour Party People last night & it put me in such a mood for Joy Division. I was quite disappointed by the lack of mention of The Smiths in this story of the Manchester music scene...but whatever. I've always loved this song because it resonates with me on so many levels. The romantic idea of love is all about roses, doves, kisses & the reuniting of those who were "destined" to be together forever. I've always found the reality of love to be terrifying, exhilarating & sometimes- it really does just tear you to pieces. It can make you sick & miserable. It makes you aware of your vulnerabilities & can make you suddenly realize everything that you ARE NOT. Yes- it does bring people together, but it also tears them apart...
