tunesday: amongster

 

ok, so there is a hokey forest sex scene that keeps this video from being amazing, but disregard it.  let’s look at everything else that’s amazing: the song itself is floaty, ethereal, with a beat that ties you down enough so that you don’t float off into the heavens, and it builds up like love.  the closeups of forest creatures is so wonderful.  i want to see more snake scales & turtle shells & snails unfurling their eye stalks.  the star and forest shots hit me right in the heart.   now pardon me, while i watch this video a few more times in a row.

 

tunesday – what i wouldn’t do

okay, sorry about the radio silence–first i was in california, and then a whirlwind after i got home, and then and then and then…

 

but here’s something small, a little musical offering. i’m so in love with this song right now! it’s dancey and wonderful and reminds me of my friend chris chan  (he got a crush on serena ryder like 10 years ago because he knows everything about the canadian indie music scene and it was cute then and it’s still cute now).   on top of that,  i’m in a lovespace and so lovey music makes me happy! your love is like an ocean indeed.

 

 

 

tunesday: you said something

back to the swoony days of my late teens.  i’ve always been prone to romanticism, and over nothing more than music.   the best songs hit me right in the solar plexus and make me happy and sad and bittersweet and twisting achy inside.  i love the tension in this song.  it feels that beautiful space before a first kiss: after you know that you want to very much indeed but before you actually touch. that feeling, pre-kiss tension, is the best but also the worst when it stretches out for hours and this is what the song reminds me of.

 

it’s wonderful for the added touch of mystery, like the last scene in lost in translation, such a tease because i want to know what was said.
