Mrs. White


Katie Melua - Just Like Heaven (The Cure cover, very well done!)
Show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream he said
The one that makes me laugh he said
And threw his arms around my neck
Show me how you do it
And I promise you I promise that
I'll run away with you
I'll run away with you

Spinning on that dizzy edge
I kissed his face and kissed his head
And dreamed of all the different ways I had
To make him glow
Why are you so far away? he said
Why won't you ever know that I'm in love with you
That I'm in love with you

You, soft and only
You,lost and lonely
You, strange as angels
Dancing in the deepest oceans
Twisting in the water
You're just like a dream
You're just like a dream

Daylight licked me into shape
I must have been asleep for days
And moving lips to breathe his name
I opened up my eyes
And found myself alone alone
Alone above a raging sea
That stole the only boy I loved
And drowned him deep inside of me

You, soft and only
You, lost and lonely
You, just like heaven

You, soft and only
You, lost and lonely
You, just like heaven

What is the Download Of The Day? 1 | 2

Sigur Rós - Njósnavélin (acoustic)
Awesome acoustic performance from the Icelandic quartet Sigur Rós. For the uninitiated, the lyrics are almost always in their own unique language called Volenska (sometimes referred to as 'Hopelandic'), which is based on Viking poetry. Here is an interview with the band that describes the etymology.

The video version, recorded for BBC's The Culture Show, was recorded at their home studio Sundlaugin in Alafoss, Iceland. The same version, with no vocal overdubs from the show host, is available below as the 2nd download of the day. The studio was originally a public pool next to a stream. The band had a studio building constructed over the pool, and the room you see in the video is what at one time was a swimming pool.

This song appears on the album ( ) (sometimes called "Brackets") and was also featured in the film Vanilla Sky. Njósnavélin is also called 'The Nothing Song' and loosely translates to 'The Spy Machine'. On the album, it is simply 'Untitled #4' or 'Track 4'. You can download the album version directly from the band here: right-click to save.

Michael Savage - Worst Person IN THE WOOOOOORLD!!!

Michael Savage, fucked-up ultra right-wing tool and general crusty cunt extraordinnaire, has once again sunk to a new low. Just when you think he goes lower than he could have gone before, there's this whole crazy underground parking garage of lowness that you never saw coming. Read the Media Matters post for the full transcript.

Jello Biafra, lead screamer for The Dead Kennedys, has responded to all of this. Read that here.

Take Action!

I believe if I lived my life again
I'd still be here with you
I believe if I lived my life again
I'd still be here with you

You know I think if lady luck was blind
That old sun would never shine
And I believe if death really held a knife
We'd all be beggars of life

Sometimes I wish that I could close my eyes
To some things I don't want to see
But I believe if you lived your life again
You'd still be here with me

I'll never see the ending of my mind
Everything will have a time
Why should I ask for things that I don't need
Or pretty lies to hide my greed

Goodbye, Utah - Thank you for everything you inspired and gave without fear or restraint. Your entire life is a lesson in bravery and doing things on one's own terms.
