Sunday Videos 5 & 6

I first heard this song performed by Bon Iver live while browsing his live performances on YouTube. Regardless of the fact that an over-enthusiastic audience spoilt a couple of moments of this otherwise perfect rendition, it is a beautiful, heartbreaking song.

Very rarely indeed that I am captivated by a song upon first listen, but yes, I went into frenzy looking for a downloadable version of the original, as I’m pretty sure her material will not be readily available locally. So the YouTube link below is current the only means to which I can listen to Sarah Siskind’s Lovin’s For Fools.

Sunday Video 4

A live performance of Flume by Bon Iver is quite appropriate for this wet east coast Sunday afternoon, whilst debating (more like arguing) where to go for lunch, whether to change into day clothes or laze around in sleepwear. Also listening to horrid small town traffic congestion stories as a result of power cuts from people who had actually gone out to buy a sack of rice from dark, blacked-out supermarkets.

……….

Went to see Twilight yesterday with A, Y and Chala. More like an extended tv show than a movie with a sequel definitely in the works. Teensy, cheesy but enjoyable nevertheless if you’ve been holed up at home all week, waiting for torrents to complete downloading. Then someone shuts your macbook to save it from learing imaginary house-breakers and all you can expect to download is torrential rain.

Got loaded on wack herb before the movie yesterday. Disoriented after the show, holding a coke in one hand and the exit parking ticket in the other, walked to the mall parking lot which was a cacophony of blaring horns. A combination of crap layout, impatient people and a PC fair had caused a congestion and exit traffic was at a standtill. We got into the car, drove a few levels up to find another exit. Found it and found out that I’d lost the ticket. Went back to where we originally parked and found the ticket beside the coke balancing precariously on the ledge I had inadvertently placed them.

Wack fucking herb. Gimme some more, P.

This is some Indonesian dude on YouTube playing a cover of Padi’s Masih Tetap Tersenyum. But in a Jason Mrazzy jazzy style. His name is Iphan Handojo and he’s terribly good.

I don’t believe in an interventionist god

But I know, darling, that you do

But if I did I would kneel down and ask him

Not to intervene when it came to you
