SOTD: Warren Zevon, “Keep Me In Your Heart”

26 Jun

 

You know I’m tied to you like the buttons on your blouse
Keep me in your heart for a while.

Hold me in your thoughts
Take me to your dreams
Touch me as I fall into view
When the winter comes
Keep the fires lit
And I will be right next to you.

Getting my post-bac in A – &$*@!#^ – merica, flinging myself across the continental 48, prone to loving the new, but missing my friends, and probably being farther away from my family than I can justify, things get complicated.

Nothing like a little Zevon to put it in perspective.

Sam’s SOTD: “24,900 Miles Per Hour” by 7 Year Bitch

Hello from Seattle!

In keeping with the riotous spirit of the PNW, here’s a super90s SOTD and music vid by Seattle’s own 7 Year Bitch.

SOTD Double Dose: Lupe Fiasco and Reformed Whores

9 Mar

So TMMV missed the boat on Black History Month this February (sorry! I’m a working class schmuck again with little time to blog), but we wanted to make it up to y’all with a double dose of music to celebrate this hard-won holiday as well as International Women’s Day!

Here are two amazing songs that help us share our late-winter-early-spring-holidays-that-aren’t-celebrated-enough-in-America feelings.

Heard this song by Lupe Fiasco on WRFG yesterday.  Gave me chills.  Beautiful.
(Note – this is a fanvid.)
In response to the Slutgate begun by credibility-less Rush Limbaugh, musical comedy duo Reformed Whores took it upon themselves to make ‘slut’ a compliment, play with crystal balls, and stick their bums out a lot.  Fight absurdity with absurdity, eh?  I like it.

Sam’s SOTD: Rilo Kiley, “More Adventurous” (Live)

9 Feb

“With every broken heart/ we should become

More adventurous”

-Rilo Kiley

 

An oldie but good-ie, I say.

From morose, grey lanes of Boston, with its onslaught of snow a piss-stained Sisyphean boulder, to glasses-spritzing mist and collegiate memories on the San Francisco wharf: much has changed in a year. But not yet quite enough.

Stay tuned for updates from my most recent job at the Sundance Film Festival, and a new film writing project in the works!

Sam’s SOTD: “Wild Goose Chase” by Dark Dark Dark

30 Dec

 

“Portland west to Portland east” in 2011- this was more like an anthem of my year than just a song of the day.

“Oh, I do not love to ramble around…”

What would your song of the year be?

Sam’s SOTD: “Good Woman” by Cat Power

12 Dec

 

Chan Marshall, aka Cat Power, is from Georgia.  Like me.

And like me, she wants to be a good woman.  And wants them all to be good, good men.  But what exactly that means is a helluva lot more complicated.  Isn’t it all?

This songs spits lizard venom in my wounds and sews me up with overcast stitches.

God, I hate the holidays.
