i’m dying to put a little bit of sunshine in your life

Sorry that I’ve been so very neglectful over here. I’ve been sort of distracted/busy, and also slightly sick. It’s still woefully snowy and cold out (I think almost six feet in a month?? Wow) and I’ve been mostly stuck in my apartment for a long time. I’m getting a bit tired of it.

Anyway! To catch up:

Frost/Nixon STILL hasn’t come here. Sigh. I hope it does very soon. Also, I’m very excited for Last Chance Harvey (trailer here) which looks very sweet. I love Emma Thompson & any trailer that uses Badly Drawn Boy‘s “The Shining” (the subject line is from its lyrics) automatically owns a bit of my heart. It’s one of those songs that makes me gasp every time I hear it, because it’s so brilliantly gorgeous, and I cannot hear it without tearing up, in a mostly good way. It reminds me of a specific time in my life, an optimistic time that I’ve been trying to get back to lately.

Here’s a lovely live performance of it in London, from 2004:

More soon, indeed. xoxo

    Thats so funny you mentioning Badly Drawn boy, i just re-bought the albums on cd so i can listen to them in my workshop (i bought them back when i was a geeky record shop employee and only bought vinyl!) and i’d forgotton just how much i like him. Reminds me of a carefree time in my life!

  2. They’re so great, definitely!

    *wonders what it’s like showering surrounded by french*

  5. Sarah- Totally! It’s brilliant.

    & Pete- You are! I have a fondness for people who remind me of you, I swear :)
    and ha, I know! I keep reading the words backwards while I’m drying my hair in the mirror
