Gonna Take a Trip To Laredo

Laredo by the underrated Band of Horses out of North Carolina off their latest release Infinite Arms. Song of the Year nominee...

Gonna take a trip to Laredo
Gonna take a dip in the lake
Oh, I'm at a crossroads with myself
I don't got no one else

Impossibilities at the door
I won't be needing them no more
Oh, is this the first time in your life?
It's hard just to get by

But oh, my love, don't you even know?
And oh, my love, are you really gone?

And can you see the world through a window?
Are you having troubles in droves?
Oh, it ain't the worst thing I could do
Is get back home to you

I put a bullet in my Kia Sorento
A kitchen knife fucked in my face
Throw me in the deep of Jammer Lake
Believe me when I say

That oh, my love, you don't even call
And oh, my love, is that you on the phone?

And oh, my love, you don't even know
That oh, my love, are you really gone?

Tom + Verna 4Ever

"It isn't easy, is it Verna?"

Even tho they are lovers, Verna wants to kill Tom because she thinks that Tom killed her brother Bernie. Verna was also flopping around with Leo to save Bernie. Was she only with Tom to save Bernie too?

Happy St. Swithin's Day

Ten years ago I sent this invite for my St.Swithin's Day party

Of course Billy Bragg tells a tale of lost love in his aptly titled song St. Swithin's Day with these verses:

With my own hands
When I make love to your memory
It's not the same
I miss the thunder
I miss the rain
And the fact that you don't understand
Casts a shadow over this land
But the sun still shines from behind it.

Thanks all the same
But I just can't bring myself to answer your letters
It's not your fault
But your honesty touches me like a fire
The Polaroids that hold us together
Will surely fade away
Like the love that we spoke of forever
On St Swithin's Day

Jeffrey + Sandy 4Ever

Jeffrey and Sandy fell in love rather quickly, but soon went on a wild adventure in Blue Velvet in 1986. This movie was in my top ten for a long time...

The High Hat

It's gettin' so a businessman can't expect no return from a fixed fight. Now if you can't trust a fix, what can you trust? For a good return you gotta go bettin' on chance, and then you're back with anarchy. Right back inna jungle. On account of the breakdown of ethics. That's why ethics is important. It's the grease makes us get along, what separates us from the animals, beasts a' burden, beasts a' prey.

- Johnny Caspar, "Miller's Crossing."
