Music and Fic

My new music find is Neko Case. I had one of her songs, 'Hold On, Hold On', and sought out her actual albums. Ended up getting 'Fox Confessor Brings the Flood' and I'm loving it in that repeat it over and over way [g] she has an amazing voice and some very dark and strange lyrics.

For example: Dirty Knife
SO SUDDENLY THE MADNESS CAME

WITH IT'S WHISKERED, WOLVEN, ETHER PANGS
HE LOCKED THE DOOR
AND HE SHUT THE BLINDS
HE LAID DOWN ON THE FLOOR AND HE SLEPT LIKE IRON
WHILE THE DIRTY KNIFE WORKED DEEP
INTO HIS SPINE
THE BLOOD RUNS CRAZY
THE BLOOD RUNS CRAZY

CASCADING LETTERS POOL ON THE STAIRS
THE GRASS IS HIGH, THE CATS ARE WILD
YOU CAN'T EVEN TOUCH THE TIP OF THEIR TAILS
AND THE BLOOD RUNS CRAZY WITH GIANT STRIDES

HE SANG NURSERY RHYMES TO PARALYZE
THE WOLVES THAT EDDY OUT THE CORNER OF HIS EYES
BUT THEY SQUARED HIM FROZEN WHERE HE STOOD
IN THE GLOW OF THE FURNITURE PILED HIGH FOR FIREWOOD
AND THE BLOOD RUNS CRAZY WITH GIANT STRIDES
AND THE WOODSMAN FAILED TO BREECH THOSE FANGS IN TIME
SO THEY DRAGGED HIM THROUGH THE UNDERBRUSH
WEARING THREE WINTER COATS AND A DIRTY KNIFE


There's lots of her performances on YouTube if you want to check her out.

As for fic, I mentioned yesterday that I'm wanting to write an alternate life story with Ezra. It's been a favourite genre both reading and writing, and one of the first things I ever posted on LJ was 'Broken Window', which was an alternate life Highlander fic set in the 24th century. It's also one of the stories I've written that I'm most fond of, for what that's worth. So 'Life on Mars' is in no way inspiring my desire to write the story [g] (I only saw two eps of it anyways) (the original one)

But be that as it may, I need to finish 'Too Young For Heaven' and 'I Am Going to The West' before I start anything new.
