Sad Songs

So I'm totally stealing this idea from Britunes, but I think he'll be okay with it.
He compiled his six saddest Alanis songs and while I don't share his deep rooted love for the angsty little Canadian, I think that my list is still pretty good.

So we start with something recently sad. I guess it was about a year ago I learned of A Fine Frenzy. The song is Almost Lover. The video for this song combines like two of my favorite things; baby grand pianos & rivers. I was blown away.

The Waterworks:
"Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do"

This is my beloved Sarah. I think I have probably cried to her music more than anyone. I've also cried to this particular (see I can do it too Brian) song more than any other. The song is Do What You Have To Do. Although I probably could have made an entire list of just her songs. But I love variety.

The Waterworks:
"Every moment marked
With apparitions of your soul
Im ever swiftly moving
Trying to escape this desire"

No set of mine would be complete without at least one Broadway song. I think this has to be one of the most gut wrenchingly and beautifully tragic songs I've ever heard. Luckily it comes first in the show so it's all uphill from there. The song is Still Hurting from The Last Five Years.

The Waterworks:
"Give me a day, Jamie
Bring back the lies
Hang them back on the wall
Maybe I'd see
How you could be
So certain that we
Had no chance at all"

I've always been a fan of this song but I didn't really love until it was used in an episode of the West Wing. It fit the moment in this episode in a really weird ironic perfection that is bringing tears to my eyes even as I'm typing this. I adore k.d. Lang's version of this song but if I had to choose my absolute favorite, it would be Jeff Buckley's. The song is Hallelujah.

The Waterworks:

"baby i've been here before
i've seen this room and i've walked this floor
i used to live alone before i knew you
i've seen your flag on the marble arch
but love is not a victory march
it's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah"

Damien Rice... Words fail me. He's written some of the most brilliant music and lyrics I've ever heard. I can't even imagine the state of mind he had to be in when he penned this little gem. And I'm sorry if you're offended you'll just have to deal with the swears. I don't care what anyone says they are sometimes warranted. The song is Rootless Tree.

The Waterworks:
"so fuck you,
and all we've been through
I said leave it,
it's nothing to you
and if you hate me
then hate me so good
that you can let me out, let me out,
let me out of this hell when you're around"

Oh Fiona... why must you be so decadently sorrowful? You're words have been the kosher salt in the wounds of my heart for over a decade now. Yet I won't regret one sting or burn you've caused me. On several occasions you've been the only one, the only one, who understood me. I love you Fiona. My number one sad song, Never is a Promise.

The Waterworks:
"You'll never touch - these things that I hold
The skin of my emotions lies beneath my own
You'll never feel the heat of this soul
My fever burns me deeper than I've ever shown - to you"

Paisley Eye Box

There really is no question when it comes to the identity of my favorite artist. His work lines the walls of my bedroom and I am fortunate enought to get to drift off to sleep every night while wondering how I was lucky enough to get these stunning pieces of art. He is crazy talented and one of the greatest people I know. He also happens to be my cousin. Anyone I have ever shown his work to (which is pretty much everyone I've ever met) goes nuts over it. They are always asking me where they can get prints or where his work is being displayed. Well now I have answers to both of those questions.

Jeffrey Scott Knight has just started his own website, You can look at many of his amazing pieces and buy prints there. He also has three pieces for sale up at A Gallery. If you get a chance you should really stop in the gallery and see them. They aren't the ones that are shown on A Gallerys website.

Please take a moment and check out his site. He will be adding several new prints in the coming weeks and months.

Thank You For Being A Friend

Perhaps the most beloved grandmother character in television history, Estelle "Sophia Petrillo" Getty died this morning at age 84 after suffering through several years of dementia. From her website today:

To all of Estelle's Fans,

Sadly, today July 22, 2008 at 5:35 a.m. Pacific Time, we said our last good-byes to our little friend Estelle, who passed away and made her journey to the great beyond. Although it was a trip that she never wanted to take, she went gracefully, in the comfort of her own home, surrounded by her family and her very loving care-givers.

Estelle's legacy will live on and on through the comedy and laughter she gave to us all, which will forever keep us laughing out loud.

She was the first person to teach me the beauty of the sarcastic, witty, comeback. And for that I will always be grateful.

I found the coolest website today.

You can put in text and it makes it look like this.

For instance I put in the lyrics to one of my favorite songs. "Falling" by the ridiculously talented Trevor Price.

You can also put in the links to any blog and it will do the same thing.
Try it out.
