Crying far air not to be had

“Avalanche”

The Armoury Show

This is summer – some are watching
Understanding the promises
That drift away – they drift away
Nothing to share in low water
Over above an avalanche she falls away

This summer – some are August
Crying far air not to be had
Is this the way is this the way
More than enough move to the side
Watch him pass he passes by he gets away

If I could lose myself and dream away
Day upon day upon day upon day
In an avalanche she drifts away
Over its over its over its over

I wish we could be together
I wish we could be together again
Like a play on words

Quote of the Day: The Trashcan Sinatras on Scottish independence

Like you needed another reason to love the Trashcan Sinatras:

It has always been a source of frustration to me that the generally socially conscious, community based, fair minded voting patterns of Scotland have been relatively futile in impact. In fact, for the majority of my life, Scotland has been governed by non socially conscious governments. It felt awful and frustrating to live through, still does, and now there is a chance, one chance, to take what will always be, to some degree, a leap in the dark and take hold of complete autonomy for ourselves.

John Douglas from the Trashcan Sinatras

Please read the rest of John’s eloquent statement at the Eddi Reader, here.

And here’s one of my favorite songs by the Trashcan Sinatras.  Brilliant, brilliant band.

New painting: Guilty

This is the successfully finished three-color challenge that I did for Gravity Kills.

Colors:

Blue, green, grey (it’s a really DARK grey, har har)

A visual interpretation of the song “Guilty”.

Guilty by M.K. Hajdin

Update:  Gravity Kills just tweeted me and said, I quote, “That is fucking awesome.”  I’m totally putting that on my CV.

 

Here’s the song, in case you weren’t alive in the 90s.  😉

Happy birthday, Richard Jobson

Happy birthday to Richard Jobson, punk hero of my childhood, who was born on this day in 1960.   Please join me in wishing him many happy returns.

And for your enjoyment, here is my personal favorite Armoury Show video.  It’s from a show called The Tube in 1985.

The gold lame!  The hat!  The GUM!

You have not lived until you have seen this.

I am ashamed to admit this

I can’t think straight. I can’t get anything done.  THIS SONG IS DRIVING ME CRAZY.  I can’t get it out of my head.

Oh sure, the song’s hilarious, but this has gone on for two days now.  I can’t post anything worth reading until it goes away.
