Frank O’ Hara reads “Having A Coke With You.”
at you and I would rather look at you than all the portraits in the world
except possibly for the Polish Rider occasionally and anyway it’s in the Frick
which thank heavens you haven’t gone to yet so we can go together the first time
and the fact that you move so beautifully more or less takes care of Futurism

Rainy Zurich - The Fray
Wandering Limbs - Kimbra (Live Sideshow Alley version)
Downloaded this off YouTube last night, haven’t stopped listening to it since. Like most of my Web-loitering friends whose heads whip at hearing hey-that-sounds-half-decent songs on TV (and by this I am referring specifically to that Gossip Girl commercial on ETC) and scouring afterwards on our favorite music video platforms… I was, for a brief while, infatuated with that damn Gotye song. (And this, thank the gods of music, is where I found Kimbra.)
I sincerely think she is one of the best artists to come along in years. And before I ramble on any further, here is a live version of her song, Wandering Limbs.
Favorite lines: Everything.

“Do they collide?”
I asked and you smiled
With my feet on the deck,
the world doesn’t matter
When you feel embarrassed, then I’ll be your pride
When you need direction, then I’ll be the guide
For all time,
for all time.
(Arguably my favorite Death Cab song.)
“And it’s not ‘clever lonely’ (like Morrissey) or ‘interesting lonely’ (like Radiohead); it’s ‘lonely lonely’, like the way it feels when you’re being hugged by someone and it somehow makes you sadder.” -Chuck Klosterman
Turn to Stone - Ingrid Michaelson
Why is this song so good? I must’ve listened to it twenty times now. I hear it’s endorsed by one Melanie and Marko, Damon Salvatore, and Izzy and Alex. Great people there, haha.
