The Ark

Whatever floats your boat...

Not sure everyone knows but I am working every other week   (7 blocks of 10 hour shifts followed by 7 free days of catching p on doing stuff) so  forgive me if I drop off the radar every other week.

There was a rare happening with my favorite cactus this year, and sadly I missed it due to work conflict.  (several blooms went into stall and we had a second bloom night)  Dogmom snapped a photo for me and I set up my usual timelapse thing.

Anyhow, hope to get some things I promised  few folks done as soon as I get some time free. 

Watched a cool Irish Movie called Ondine the other night.... Second Movie in a month (other one Gravity) that featured Lisa Hannigan in the soundtrack.  So I have been listening a bit more to Lisa's music while I wait for Damien Rice's new Album this fall. Lisa's songs are upbeat quirky and soemtimes fun and yet very soulful.  Anyhow, thought I would share a few.

RE: The bloom. I'm always fascinated when you post these for us that we can't see here in the NE. 

RE: Lisa Hannigan - I got a bit obsessed with "Little Bird" when you posted on her a while back.  now, i REALLY like "oh Undone" .  You're EVIL. I don't have enough room in my brain for all this good stuff AND sleep when I'm off work! CURSED MUSIC!!

Ah.... Yeah....  Undone... Lisa's best stuff she doesn't release with the rest of the tracks on her CDs.   However, ITUNES has Undone (Bonus Track for "Passenger").   The studio track for Undone is amazing sounding... better than the live recording session you saw in the video above which is quite good.

Very much worth the purchase off ITUNES.

Little Bird is on the official release of "Passenger", and as you know directed at Damien.  So that one is a bit dark, and triumphant at the same time making it a very strange mix.

Your blossoms look other-worldly in this. My compliments to Dogmom on a great photo. And lately you have become my best source for new chick music. Lisa Hannigan. Thanks for that!

Yeah I think Josh Radnor, (although for the most part of this essay sounding as if it was about outgrowing  an old love) summed up what it is like watching Lisa perform when he wrote:

"One cannot speak about Damien Rice in those days without mentioning his co-conspirator in feelings-inducement, Lisa Hannigan, a creature of such transporting loveliness she seemed to have emerged from a sea shell. She was the kind of ethereal beauty that got your fantasy motor so over-revved you were convinced you had just laid eyes on the great love of your life."
