Here I go again coming back from friday drinks and posting rubbish, like that's ever stopped me before...

I'd just like to add a couple of my fave Cure songs in here, pausing to fire up itunes on his beloved G4 to play one of them...

'From the edge of the deep green sea' and 'the same deep water as you'

Goth, moi?

Oh yes, both classics, very moody. Speaking of The Cure, here's a dusty old rare 10" from my archives at home called "Half an Octopus", aka Quadpus in some releases.

It dates from 1985 and features "Close to Me", "A Man Inside My Mouth"(!), "Stop Dead" and "New Day". I don't think many of these were issued, but I'm not sure.

Say, this is pretty funny:

I Crush Everything

Jonathan Coulton is a songwriter here in NYC. You can listen to "I Crush Everything" as streaming media if you click on the songs box above the lyrics. The song seems to be about a giant squid who's had some bad experiences with love and boats.

Geez, Melissa -

I just went and started listening again until I realized it was "Octopus Woman" - just dreadful!

A song you don't know by a band you've never heard of but can google.Go on, they're great.

Joining the Plankton by Cardiacs

Die time!
jump out of life's egg and join the plankton
inking off across the beds
Inking off across the, and across the thing
'cross the thing

Ink me (woo!)
come to me exploring ah!
and joining the plankton inking off across the beds
Inking off always
So we'll swim and froth with limbs the blue

This much, the ultimate in devotion
and sensitive suckers, beating and cleaning and
keeping me sweet and serene
inked in my face and jetted off
Enough please RELEASE MY HEAD!
hand offered with thanks
mistakes my turgid gland for my hand

Die time!
jump out of life's egg and join the plankton
inking off across the beds
Ink my face and froth with limbs the blue-ah!
Jetting off with thanks mistakes my turgid gland
for my hand


Wonder what that's about then?
