CANT- ANSWER

So my favourite band of all time Grizzly Bear has kinda got a new project, well Chris Taylor the bassist will soon be dropping his debut LP, Dreams Come True.

I love ANSWER it’s really different and amazing. I really liked Ghosts which is the last song I heard from CANT but that was so long ago I actually forgot he was making pretty music.

Hope the album is as amazing as this song.

Visuals!

So I’m yet again over extending myself and allowing myself to be crushed by hobbies.

Saturday marks my visuals/leading onto VJ’ing debute. I’ll be doing the spooky visuals for the party of the year…. ▲†‡† WITCH HOUSE PARTY †‡†▲

Visual inspiration:

Tonight Eve of The Frown fame and I are running around Greenside, chasing cats and dancing naked in silhouette to create some mad and beautiful images for people to dance to. YAY to the power to rad!

DUCHESS!

So I finally made a facebook page for my dj’ing alter ego – Duchess.

Please like me because I’m quite sure I should be trying to get alot of likes? I’m confused by this whole thing but needed to do it so parties could link to something other than my blog.

I like my blog! I might just use Duchess’s FB page to talk about my blog 🙂

Cunning plan!

I even made this pretty logo with my amazing Photoshop skills (I suck) – stole the hands off a terrifying trucker hat I found online

Breathe Owl Breathe – Swimming

Lyrics:

swimming/
I wish I was swimming/
I wish I was swimming/
I wish I was/
I wishawishawishawas/

bring your mask and snorkel/
bring the flippers also/
bring the frisbee baby/
bring something to drink/
bring your purple bathing suit/
depends on where we’re going to/
if we’re going to that swimming hole/
we son’t need nothing at all/
some warm clothes to jump into/
or we could air dry/
I’ll do the cannon ball/
if you do your swan dive/
you can plash me if you want to ///
but not in the eye/

chorus

somewhere in the well kept secrets/
I’ll never tell where the rope swing is/
ooo waawww ooo waawww
somewhere in the well kept secrets/
you’ll never tell where the rope swing is where to hold on/
when to let go/
swing out/
give out a yell/
you’ll never hit bottom/
you’ll never grow tired/
of this wonder you’re under/

Elliott Smith – Somebody That I Used To Know

I’m a big Elliott Smith fan but this one slipped through the cracks til I searched ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ in reference to my favourite Gotye song. It’s lovely and a real contrast to the Gotye song of the same title. I posted the video for that song a few day ago but just to make sure you’ve seen it… I reposted it at the bottom of this blog entry just in case you missed it. That’s just how I roll 🙂

Elliott Smith – Somebody That I Used To Know Lyrics

I had tender feelings that you made hard
But it’s your heart, not mine, that’s scarred
So when I go home I’ll be happy to go
You’re just somebody that I used to know
You don’t need my help anymore
It’s all now to you, there ain’t no before
Now that you’re big enough to run your own show
You’re just somebody that I used to know
I watched you deal in a dying day
And throw a living past away
So you can be sure that you’re in control
You’re just somebody that I used to know
I know you don’t think you did me wrong
And I can’t stay this mad for long
Keeping ahold of what you just let go
You’re just somebody that I used to know
