I found a place where we can live

A place for us to live where we can see the sky and the water and watch the sun melt into the waves.

John Atkinson Grimshaw

Liverpool from Wapping, c. 1875

Mr. John Atkinson Grimshaw (1836-1893) had an uncanny talent for capturing the sodden atmospheres of this delightful island kingdom. One feels the ooze between the cobblestones, the vague weather, damp, neither warm nor cold, and somewhere up above, the moon...

He was at his best with these contemporary subjects, unromanticized glimpses of everyday scenes, infused with a stark poetry, the heroism of modern life...

The Genius of Will Oldham

One of my heroes these days...

"Can't Take That Away From Me" - a Mariah, uh, Carey cover of all things. Not sure about the song but the vid is real pretty

"Workhorse" - brilliantly simple video directed by Harmony Korine

"Lay and Love" - song and story splendid
