Hug me with your eyes.

4 Feb

 

A beautiful little song by Kimya Dawson called Tree Hugger just to make you smile on this dreary Tuesday afternoon…

And a photo of a cat dressed as a bee because it’s relevant and awesome.

This is my new favourite thing on the internet.

I’ve watched every morning for the past two weeks.

It is the best get-out-of-bed-and-start-your-day-with-something-awesome song!

The original song, by Cat Stevens, is played during the credits and all credit is due to him this song (and yes i know this sounds horrendously cheesy) speaks to my soul! And for me, watching Amanda Palmer play through a bunch of her wonderful fans, in glorious ninja stylings, to the tune of the ocean in the fading sunlight is heart-breakingly beautiful perfection.

 

p.s. Amanda i do want be you. If i wish for it hard enough do you think it will happen?!

The saddest of sads.

Get your box of tissues ready for…………………….. Amanda Palmer and The Grand Theft Orchestra’s The Bed Song video release, on today of all days this video will grind your heart.

With misty eyes the heart-wrenching beauty of this video, and new recording of the song, has made my birthday that much awesomer.

 

Have a cyber hug… after this you may need one!

Wow. Just wow.

This new video for Amanda Palmer and The Grand Theft Orchestra’s song The Killing Type is unbelievable.

Lyrics

i wouldn’t kill to win a war

i don’t get what they do it for

it’s all so terribly vague

i see the pictures from a thousand years of battle and i think it’s such a bore

i walk new orleans with a knife

like mackie hidden out of sight

but i’d be useless if they jumped

i’m really not the killing type

i’m not the killing type i’m not the killing type i’m not i’m not i’m not the killing type i’m not

i’ve got a picture of your mum

before the war when she was young

she’s got an etching to her right

i think it’s funny that she’s looking to the left and it’s her son

i wouldn’t kill to get you back

and i’ve officially been asked

i couldn’t kill to save a life

i’d rather die a peaceful piece of shit-bait shame-filled coward

thanks

i’m not the killing type i’m not the killing type i’m not i’m not i’m not the killing type i’m not

but i would kill to make you feel

i don’t mean kill someone for real

i couldn’t do that, it is wrong

but i can say it in a song a song a song

and i’m saying it NOW

i’m saying it SO

even if you never hear this song somebody else would know

i’m saying it NOW

i’m saying it SO

even if you never hear this song somebody else will know know know know

i just can’t explain how good it feels i just can’t explain how good it feels i just can’t explain how good it feels i just can’t describe

i once stepped on a dying bird

it was a mercy killing i couldn’t sleep for a week

i kept feeling its breaking bones

i heard that if you see a star at night

and the conditions are just right

and you are standing on a cliff

then you can close your eyes and make a wish and take a step and change somebody’s life

i’m not the killing type i’m not the killing type i’m not i’m not i’m not the killing type i’m not

but i would kill to make you feel

i’d kill to move your face an inch

i see you staring into space

i wanna stick my fist into your mouth and twist your arctic heart

yes i would kill to make you feel

i don’t mean kill someone for real

i couldn’t do that, it is wrong but i can say it in a song a song a song

and i’m saying it NOW

i’m saying it SO

even if you never hear this song somebody else would know

i’m saying it NOW

i’m saying it SO

even if you never hear this song somebody else would know know know know

i just can’t explain how good it feels

i just can’t explain how good it feels

i just can’t explain how good it feels

i just can’t describe ibe ibe ibe DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE

i’m not the killing type.

 

beautiful.
