    Especially Fox. Razzer

    I was in an iced cream shop here in nyc, and I stumbled out the door with a friend (we tried to get through at the same time) and while laughing, I fell into a giant iced cream cone. THE giant iced cream cone. I had no idea - I didn't even see it while walking in!

    And also there's a house on the corner of my street that's really lovely, and it's for sale. Every time I walk past it, I think, "...but they've got homes of their own" from poor little rich boy. Ridiculous!


  2. Doors are certainly not 6-ish.

    Apple Store protocol includes waiting until around 6:45, shooing everyone out, then bringing in small herds of people as mentioned earlier. They wouldn't miss an hour of sales more than they have to, especially a friday night.

    from the prefix article:

    "If you listen closely, “Human” picks up the same but slightly altered theme of a much older track, “Love Affair,” which is the first track off of the Spektor album Eleven:Eleven."

    I was thinking this the other day. They start with the same exact notes, just played differently.

    Man, I grew up in B'klyn. I swear, we always seemed to be in school way past everyone else. Are you guys done now? And an "A+" for nailing a senior member of the administration!!

    Yeah, we've been "out of school" since the 12th, but we've had those damned Regent exams until the 24th!!! I got my report card yesterday, and the public school seniors graduated yesterday as well. Nothing like waiting until last minute, I guess. (I'm private school, and the seniors here graduated the 7th.. haha)


  5. <resurrects>

    The entirety of the song "Us" is on the movie's website, in the bottom right corner "music player" thingy. Skip through the rest to find it. It's also in the trailer, really appropriately.

    I really want to see this movie now.

    There's also this weird yet oddly informative summary of her albums... http://www.foxsearchlight.com/...ofsummer/blog/?p=588


  6. I was thinking this morning how I could play Machine, and it's very musically similar to both "Us" and "The Flowers" in that it's a fragmented (segmented? broken-up-ended?) chord played the same way in all three. Although it sounds different, and the part where she harmonizes over the flowing piano reminds me of the music the history channel used to play in their shows in the 90s. Yeah.... *dork*


  7. I think there was a live album being recorded last night. Simply because I sat right in front of a mic set directly on the audience. Which I thought was weird. They put one on each side of the stage... And she also asked people not to call out song names, which she almost never does... So i think there's some recording going there. If there was, YAY! If not.. weird, but still yay! haha

    When she first started playing it, I thought it was "Hero of the Story" because it starts on the same chord. Then she stopped, played it again, and then went into the song. It was really superb, and surprisingly straightforward. And emotional. So good.


  9. I thought her dress, beyond being adorable, was reminiscent of a nun's outfit. Which is not a bad thing, really. She was so sweet tonight (she spoke to the audience A LOT). And Dan the cellist was back.

    I saw the drumkit and groaned, but it turned out to be tastefully used and made some songs even better (MACHINE holy crap yes!)

    This was a very different show than the usual plug-and-play shows she's been doing for several years now... it didn't even start with "Ain't No Cover"

    The audience was much more mature than previous shows I've been to, and there was minimal to no singing along, even during the encore. (I was shocked)

    I really enjoyed Little Joy, too.

    The show was magical. It was as if she was in a different key signature tonight. So excellent. Her voice... oh that voice.

    PS. Consequence of Sounds: I. Almost. Died.


  10. you might actually be in some luck because it's an old movie theatre, and it's angled so everyone sees the stage. Hopefully this is still true eighty years later for live shows

    Either way, just to be there will be awesome.

    And I feel you about the english regent. I had to convince my mom the exact same thing. "Ma, this test requires me to be able to use a pencil."

    "Oh, alright then."

    yeah. nyse going, nysed. (new york state education department.. it's a pun, get it? >.< )


  11. I actually first thought about it when she said something about her "pre-war apartment" and then "now my post-war apartment" and taking apart the world. But I hadn't thought about "the future, it's here" part. verrry cool/interesting/probably not even correct. hahaha

    THIS ALBUM IS SO GOOD.
