There’s just something about a new Eels album. You wait ages for it, then once you’ve listened to it you realise how much you’ve changed since the last one. Each album delicately shows how E. has changed/grown/aged through the subtle rhythm and lyrics. There’s still a destinctive style in there; no mad re-inventing, but at the same time it sounds completely different and new.
E.’s music always crops up at significant times in my life, and his pain often has reflections in mine. Which turns out to be the opposite of depressing, it reminds me that someone else feels it too. That we can never be alone, a stranger has already walked this path, and sung/written/posted about it.
Firstly, how do you get this cool ask page? Second... I love the tree! It's so pretty, with the apples and the squirrels... what will it be used for? Or is it just to look pretty? :)
The cool answering thing is from the dashboard page. I think if you click on the messages tab on the left hand side you can add a bit of html to your theme when customising your blog. Although on your blog it looks like you’ve already figured it out! ^_^
Secondly… thanking you! The tree was my first experiment with laser cutting at uni, I use it as jewellery stand when I do craft fairs. I have several and also use them as centerpieces. Am tempted to get some more made in 3mm thick MDF too, and sell them as jewellery trees maybe.
Love your blog btw, and thankyou for following mine.
Florida again this year, I love it so much because its like the rest of the world doesn’t exist. My problems don’t follow me there, it’s the only place I’ve really felt like that, no worries, no drama, as soon as I get on the plane, it’s like I’m not me. I don’t have my problems, I’m just me and I can do anything I want to.
That’s what I want from a holiday, to completely escape, not worry about money or keeping an appointment or doing work, I just want to be free. Interesting that it costs so much in our society to truly be free, I can only envision myself being free when I have enough funds to be able to go wherever I want whenever I want and that’s pretty unlikely…..unless I pull myself together and create myself some beautiful design :/
I’ll be getting right to that now. Well, I might have some eats first.
At least one of us has to make it big with the designs, then we can mooch’offa each other (*finger crossed*). Wish I could go live in that bubble now. xXx
