Words of warning and welcome:

This is very much my blog, so don't be surprised if this doesn't follow accepted patterns and norms. Obviously it started out as a blog about my cross-dressing but it has developed a great deal since then. It is a place where I can be anonymous and honest, and I appreciate that.

It will deal with many things and new readers would do well to check out the New Readers' Page above this and the tag down there on the right. Although there's nothing too bad in here there will be adult language, so be careful. If you think this needs a greater control, please let me know. Thank you!

Fitting

I'd forgotten about this, but I found it again.


It's... haunting. Also, disturbingly accurate.  Do not watch if you're already feeling a tad melancholic or down.  It's not worth that.  It's a great song, by a great artist.  If you're melancholy or down then try the offering below, one day I shall link it with the Pet Shop Boys, one day...



This song seems to me to mean more than Hannon ever meant it to mean.  I imagine it being spoken, with rhythm, in a church with unnatural lighting.  I imagine it a call to arms and a warning all rolled into one.  But my imagination is a tricky beast.

  1. I do like those songs. He sings like a cross between Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen.

  2. Yeah, the whole discography is awesome. Unfortunately the two tracks above are B-sides, so it's not like you can get the Best Ofs or the albums and have all the good stuff.

    I can heartily recommend most of the tracks on 'Fin de sciele' though, which I rediscovered whilst pootling about recently at work. It's the orchestral backing that does it, I think, he manages to condense the seedy bass of Cave with some of the soulful pull one associates with female artists and there's a raw emotion that puts me in mind of Gotye...

    "Something for the Weekend" and "Frog Princess" are the comedy classics though.
