5/16/05 03:23 pm - oceanfish - More Liz Phair ramblings.

Hey, just wanted to update on my last post.

The live Liz Phair album I refered to turned out to be...well, interesting. It was titled "Jam and Run", and it turned out to be a bootleg. Interesting for sure, but hysterically bad sound was involved. I'm not sure if anyone else has run across this, but I would say it's probably not worth it, although Miss Phair herself, of course, is awesome.

I forgot to mention in my last post...my lovely friend little_elf_girl sent me a Liz Phair CD last week. It's called Juvenalia. (Spelling?) I was wondering if anyone had heard it? The best is the version of "Turning Japanese" that Liz Phair does. It's wonderful and hysterical. If you are a Phair fan and haven't heard it, I highly recommend it. :) The other songs are really nice too. Kind of slow, darkish, and brooding. They're nice, and this is an album I'll definately be playing often.

I'm writing this from vacation, so I have to keep this quick, but I wanted to drop a line and mention some new music I've recently acquired.
I recently got some new Lacuna Coil music. Unleashed Memories and the Halflife EP. I'm loving them so far!! These albums are true to the sound I fell in love with through listening to Comalies. I also have to say that I'm in love with Cristina Scabbia's voice!
I also got an album called Mother Earth by Within Temptation (thanks to the folks at womenofmetal for turning me on to them!!> I believe this band is Dutch. They're fronted by a woman (I don't remember the name now, but I will look it up and post it in the near future), and they're sound is great. I feel like it has a sort of Irish music sound to it, but it's got a metal flavor and is just great. Listening to it makes me feel like I'm in a fairy tale.
I went to go pick up a copy of WhiteChocolateSpaceEgg by Liz Phair for my dad, who loves this album and lost his copy, and although I failed in my original quest, I found a live album of Liz Phair's that I'll post more about later. Does anyone know anything about this album? I haven't gotten a chance to listen yet, but I will soon and will let y'all know what I think.

Okay, enough rambling about new music. If people are interested, I'll post more about these albums later when I've had more time to listen and can write more.

I've been looking in the mirror for so long.
That I've come to believe my soul's on the other side.
All the little pieces broken, shattered.
Shards of me, too sharp to put back together.
To small to matter,
But big enough to cut me into so many little pieces,
If I try to touch her.

And I bleed.
I bleed.
And I breathe,
I breathe no more.

Take a breath and I try to draw from my spirit's well.
Then again you refuse to drink like a stubborn child.
Lie to me, convince me that I've been sick forever.
And all of this will make sense when I get better.
But I know the difference between myself and my reflection,
I just can't help to wonder...
Which of us do you love?
