SHADOW

It has been getting darker earlier around here and it's reflective in my mood. My regular ensemble of all black has somehow gotten darker. Perhaps this is all relative to my election to withdraw from certain collectives and associated projects. I've decided to sacrifice a regular paycheck in order to be free and maintain some sort of artistic integrity. I couldn't carry on creating something that meant nothing to me. A "product", something that evokes no emotion. I may be brooding behind the shadows for a while, conceptualizing, sketching, writing, capturing... For now I will only associate myself with what I am passionate with/about.

A SILENT SMILE

a private kind of happiness...


heavy night, it was a heavy night
feels like we've come back from the dead
heavy night, it was a heavy night
i cannot remember what I said (to anyone)
if we get up now we can catch the afternoon
watch the under 15's playing football in the park
lets sleep in st. leonard's on this alcoholic day
we're doing the best with what we've got

i love you in the morning, when you're still hungover
i love you in the morning, when you're still strung out
i love you in the morning...
i work hard all week and so do you

we deserve to let off some steam
let all the drugs creep in
when we need to rage through this life
there might be ones who are smarter than you
that have the right answers, that wear better shoes
forget about those melting ice caps
we're doing the best with what we've got

i love you in the morning, when you're still hungover
i love you in the morning, when you're still strung out
i love you in the morning...

when I'm with you, I am calm
a pearl in your oyster
head on my chest, a silent smile
a private kind of happiness
you see giant proclamations are all very well
but our love is louder than words

NOT MADE FOR LOVE


Click, listen and read along, you may find it quite interesting...

Metronomy - Not Made For Love (Astronomer Remix)

"SEASONS IN THE SIN"

People come in and out of the scene like seasons. When we haven’t seen someone in a while, we know that we’ve probably lost them to an overdose… or a relationship. When these new relationships start, it’s always with the best intentions that nothing will change. But slowly and gradually it happens. The new couple starts to leave the parties earlier and earlier until eventually they start hosting dinners at home instead. People bring wine and they talk about their little projects. Like the one’s they’re developing together, a catering business or a clothing store or a fashion line and they talk about how they’ve started going to the gym and they’re doing cardio and that they have an awesome personal trainer with a Russian name. They’re being more “productive”. They’re “growing up”. Eventually, there are less dinners, or rather, the kids “not-in-relationships” get invited less and less and the lovely couple suddenly disappears. Off the radar, just like that, and the party people stop trying to call, and everybody’s life just goes on.

And it’s always when we least expect it, you know, when we’ve finally found peace with our new dancing partners for “Lust For Life” and Arcade Fire and when we have new people to do Patron shots with, that one of them re-appears again with a brand new haircut and some cute clothes telling us how they really lost themselves in that last relationship. It was good, they don’t regret it, but New York City isn’t made for settling down. They can’t wait to re-connect with themselves and their old friends again. But, you know, it’s never as comfortable as the last time around. There’s too many new faces. The party names have changed, the DJs are “mixing harder”, and after the over-emotional, over-compensating hugs that last as if we were Vietnam vets reunited, they realize that they have changed too and that they have nothing in common with the new regime.
