Next CD is on it's way!

I hope you guys aren't getting pissed about the spam in your flist... I'm adding these to my memories, and have I mentioned I love my FLIST??? :-)

I got a flurry of CDs done yesterday and will not work on any today as I am nursing my cat. This is the cat we thought was going to have to be put down because of his GI cancer. And is beating it. He got hit by a car. AND WALKED HOME. AND JUMPED ON THE BED. AND CURLED UP AND SLEPT. He's 14. He's going to be fine, by the way. Not one broken bone, no internal injuries. He doesn't have much fur or muscle on his back legs, so he has these wonky bandages that keep him from walking properly, so His Royal Highness is getting hand-fed by me all day. (I'm really glad he's still with us. He's purdy and lovey and cuddley. He's the face rubber of all face rubbers.)

This is for smashsc who asked for "Still." I LOVE this one. Good timing.

My idea for "still" is lying prostrate. Why are you prostrate? Let's find out.

1. Transmission, Chlorophyll. This is an obscure band someone sent me on mp3 a few years back, and I've never heard of them again. The guy is sitting in a car in the rain, late at night, aching for love. He sounds a little stopped up (nasal) as if he's been crying. I love it.
2. Save Me, Aimee Mann. She's more than 'Til Tuesday. This is from the Magnolia soundtrack, and I think of people lying flat on beds or the floor, immobile with pain. Good times! But a great song.
3. One Cool Remove, Shawn Colvin. Her cover of this song is my favorite. One of my secret belt-out songs in the shower.
4. Blackbird, The Beatles. When my house was completely still and quiet in the small hours, and my baby boy wanted to be fed, I would cuddle him and sing this song while he nursed.
5. Mother's Pride, George Michaels. crazydiamondsue: you nailed it. I love him when he's quiet and mournful and jazzy, too.
6. Fragile, Sting. Lovely number with a sexy tantric (hmm) man and his guitar.
7. Fotzepolitic, Cocteau Twins. I REALLY love them. Mellow, calm, soothing. In the summer this is perfect poolside music with headphones. In cooler weather this is sitting in the snow with a blanket and a hot drink waiting for everyone to get off the lifts.
8. Set Adrift on Memories Bliss of You, P.M. Dawn. Hippie rappers? Trip hop? Ethereal rhymes? You decide. It's just bloody good music.
9. Friday's Dust, Doves. Again: OBOES!! STRINGS!! British rock can be gooood.
10. Comfortably Numb, Pink Floyd. So, WHY are you prostrate? You cannot do anything when this song is on but sit, your head resting in your hands.
11. Jesus, Etc., Wilco. Again: LOVE THEM. This is a good, sad and dreamy song off the Yankee Hotel Foxtrot album. Go get it.
12. Son of a Preacher Man, Dusty Springfield. Lord knows to my surprise: the only boy who could ever reach me, was the son of a preacher man. Why are you laying down? *wink*
13. Everybody's Trying, Poi Dog Pondering. 'Scuse me, but your hippie is showing... I bought this album at their show a few blocks away from my house on Earth Day, and I rode my bike to the show. Good times. You see about 30 people on stage with third world instruments, it's gotta be these guys.
14. Robin, Musicians of the Globe. Globe, as in Globe Theater? You expect to walk into the Midsummer Night's Dream set while listening to this. Lovely.
15. Cavatina from the Deer Hunter, Myers. This is one of the most beautiful classical guitar pieces I have ever heard, and that is saying something. I grew up listening to nothing but, and this still kills me. It was written specifically for the movie and is perfection with strings.
16. Miserere Mei, Deus (Ps. 51)Allegri. If you ever see a CD by the Dale Warland Singers, buy it. They are the best vocal group in the world. Have awards saying as much, if you don't believe me. Cool story about this song: Allegri wrote it in the 1600s for the papal choir of Urban VIII. It was performed every year during Holy Week, then hidden away under Vatican guard. There was a ban (subject to the person's death) for trying to duplicate it or copy it. Urban VIII died, and a few popes later, Mozart, all of 14, is traveling in Rome with his father, hears it, and transcribes it completely from memory. This is Psalm 51 in Latin. It is a prayer for mercy and redemption.
17. Us and Them, Pink Floyd. Had to have two of Floyd. Not much can mellow me like this song. Sat still on a chair next to Dave for the entire song waiting for him to kiss me. He never did. Dork. I shoulda taken the reins... But it's good I didn't.

Alrighty, amontillado and reremouse: I'm needing your mailing addresses to get yours out tomorrow!

We are worried for the other cats. Apparently Crawford has figured out a way to suck other cats' lives and use them for himself. :-)

We might have to change his name to Church. Or Timmy Baterman. *crickets* Anyone? Bueller?

I'm glad these aren't bugging you... I can't wait for you to get your CD!! Should be the end of this week, according to the post master.

<-- Look at me, I'm small and Wee! Lousy with my purity!
Stephen King wrote a book called "Pet Semetary." Church is the "cat who won't die" and Timmy Baterman is the boy that comes back to life and is all evil. "The soil of a man's heart is stonier, Louis."

I think that is funny only to me. That happens a lot, however.

Spam away. Got my CD yesterday, loving the heck out of it.My son loves the Beastie Boys track. You should hear him shout "hey ladies" in the car.

I am almost finished with the goose section of your cookbook. Tomorrow it's on to side dishes, and a few other miscellaneous things.
Nov. 9th, 2004 08:21 am (UTC)
Hooray!!! your son will be forever cool because he digs the Beastie Boys. My kids have been running into the office and grooving when I put your playlist on. Woot!

(Psst: I don't suppose I could convince you to post to your playlist and say what you thought, huh? I'm kind of an organizational freak, and plus, it's for posterity so be honest.) :-)

Cannot WAIT to get my recipes! That is the best gift!!
Nov. 9th, 2004 08:45 am (UTC)
I will be happy to post to my play-list. I'll probably have to do it later today, as I am running off to pick up my son from preschool. I'll just have to remember to bring the CD back inside with me.

As usual, another beautiful selection, but you've had enough of me raving about your excellent taste.

I'm so happy to hear that your cat is going to be okay. I really miss mine - I was going to get another kitten just before I found out I had to move out. I'm over the moon that the friend I'm staying with has 2 cats. Okay, I'm allergic to their fur, but what's asthma compared to kitty love?

::Hugs to you, and gentler hugs to your cat::
Nov. 9th, 2004 11:17 am (UTC)
Yes, I am growing quite weary of being told how fantastic my taste is. Stop that! :D

We've lost two cats over the years to car wrecks (stupid drivers not driving the speed limit in the neighborhood), so I am very grateful Crawford is with us. He has survived being trapped in a home's foundation for 10 days with no food or water, GI cancer, and now this. Made of Teflon. Or perhaps some poly-carbite steel from the future. I'll keep looking for his wounds to turn into steel daggers in the night.

And some stray cat has been poking around the house... Do I need a fourth cat? The answer is obvious. She's so pretty and strokey and lovey and ankle rubby. *sigh*

Your cat is invincible! *g*

I'm getting more and more excited for mine...the tension!

Is it bad that when you said prostrate I thought prostate?
Nov. 9th, 2004 11:29 am (UTC)
I swear, NOTHING can kill the cat *whimpers in fear of Anti-Kat*

Dude. Endorsed is going to fucking RAWK!!! lml ^__^ lml

Is it bad that I spelled it prostate and Sue had to email me, Stimpy! you eeediot!! Too...much...bad...fic... Can't clean brain... get out, Get Out, GET OUT!!
Nov. 9th, 2004 11:33 am (UTC)
That's AWESOME! Bad!fic...warping young minds...

Nov. 9th, 2004 11:34 am (UTC)
okaaay...we're gonna try this again...

Nov. 9th, 2004 11:35 am (UTC)
I love Monkeybottoms. I love bad(great!)fic.

The best part is "Please review or I won't write anymore." Dude. Just.... stop. K?
Nov. 9th, 2004 11:37 am (UTC)
monkeybottoms makes the bestest icons!

I wouldn't mind if the fingers they used to press shift and 1 were broken... *g*

OMG!!!1! LOL!!1!11!11!
Nov. 9th, 2004 12:09 pm (UTC)
Set Adrift on Memories Bliss of You <---- This song is now stuck in my head... this is a good thing.
Nov. 9th, 2004 12:11 pm (UTC)
There was more to that, what the shit happened to it?!?1?
Allow me to kick LJ...
ok, I'm back.
Me? Not a cat person, but I (out loud) went "awww...kitty!"
My mom was confused.

You have an awesome cat, very durable. Maybe he's a demon?
Nov. 9th, 2004 12:19 pm (UTC)
I'm thinking more along the lines of T2. Got my ears tuned to hear the creepy whine/bass music of the evil terminator.

Just posted your CD!! WHEEEE!!!

PM Dawn is just so flipping good. Do you know their albums are out of print?? Hang onto whatever you have...
Nov. 9th, 2004 12:11 pm (UTC)
Poor Crawford. Such a sweet kitty to have so much happen to him. All shaved and pitiful. Still has his mole though, I hope.

I'm glad he's all right.

cds got her CDs and that's all I've heard for two days. BTW don't forget about me? *Wondering what songs there would be to describe Anya's life*

Love ya

Noted. I'll get it there sooner, but I'll need to take a day or two off after getting the current list...

I want you to listen to Fred! I wanna know what you think!!

I have angst in my pants. I hope it doesn't show. (will that EVER get old?)
Nov. 9th, 2004 12:22 pm (UTC)
He IS a sweet kitty. He's sleeping on my pillow right now healing up. He'll be fine in a bit. Just a little banged up and battered...

Obviously you are a little burned out on cds: "cds got her CDs"

I'll cds you some cds especially for your cds coming cds. Do cds CDs cds? :D
Nov. 9th, 2004 01:48 pm (UTC)
I cds didn't CDs even cds realize CDS I cds had CDs done cds that.
Nov. 9th, 2004 03:00 pm (UTC)
Kitty! Glad he's okay. Maybe he's a superhuman superkitty kitty with special powers. Or Immortal. Does he have a sword? Or possibly a zombie, but hopefully not.

Hee. Pet Sematary. I thought it was funny. *stomps on the crickets. Then buries them in the old Indian burial ground/gravel pit thingy and they come back as evil zombie crickets. Agghhh!* But then I'm from Maine. And have a nephew named Gage. One of my other nephews is named Lestat. Yeah, my family's weird.

I find your spam fascinating and entertaining. I go squeeee whenever I see a song I like, I want to search out all the songs I haven't heard, and I love reading all your thoughts about the songs.
Nov. 9th, 2004 04:00 pm (UTC)
hopefully we won't get to the "he smells Daddy, I don't like Church anymore." Well, sweetie, that just makes Daddy so happy that he channeled the forces of evil to bring your fucking cat back from the dead for your precious little ass. I'm going to go off with this guy that's missing his skull, mm'kay? i'll send Timmy Baterman to come talk with you in a bit. Love you!

MUSIC!! MAKES THE PEOPLE!! CUM TOGETHER!! UUNNGGH!! I'm sofa king, wee todd it.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
