The Lighthouse


The Day the Lighthouse Lit Up

When I was at my parents' over the weekend for extended birthday celebrations, the blasting of loud music carried around the house. It's origin was my stepmum's study/art studio. I popped my head round the door to find out what she'd had on. The last time I did this was Easter time and back then she got me into the new Foo Fighters album - Wasting Light- and this time the song was "Sssnakepit" by Enter Shikari.

I've heard bits and pieces from them before, what with them being one of my frighteningly tall little brother's bands and one he would put on when he wrestled control of the ipod dock from my dad for "just one song" on long, not always balmy but often barmy, summer nights of BBQ and chiminea on the garden patio.

This time I think I'm getting hooked. And I heard my Granny Mo absentmindedly singing "Come and join us" as she loaded the dishwasher - proof that the earworm was doing its rounds. :-)

Lyrics: Come and join the party leave anxieties behind When the weight of all the world is pushing down Down on your shoulders...Just push right back! )

Quelle Surprise

Now here's a curiosity: A Russian music video that I stumbled upon on youtube.

My favourite person at the moment is David Hyde Pierce, otherwise known as Niles from off of Frasier. I have memories of catching bits of Frasier when I was younger but I started watching it properly when I went home for Christmas. It's the series my family's watching through at the moment, just like we did with Buffy ages ago. I wasn't that interested at first but I got caught up in it after half-watching a few episodes and I'm still youtubing as many episodes a week as I can.

Now Frasier has sneaked itself in amongst my favourite TV series, nestling next to Doctor Who in my affections, and Niles is definitely my favourite character.

Before I get to bed, I'm going to leave my favourite scene here. I know I've been called a walking engine of destruction but I may have to hand poor Niles my title after watching this!

"It was, as Mary always was, honest and completely authentic. That's the way she sang, too; honestly and with complete authenticity. I believe that, in the most profound of ways, Mary was incapable of lying, as a person, and as an artist. That took great courage, and Mary was always equal to the task." - Peter Yarrow in his tribute to Mary Travers on their website.
