I’m Not Late To The Party

Listen up: Bon Iver finally did something worth my full and undivided attention.

I Cant Make You Love Me (Bonnie Raitt Cover On Jimmy Fallon) – Bon Iver

This is pretty ageist of me, but I sometimes forget that older artists make videos and get a little shocked when I do see them. This is in no way a reference to this Bonnie Raitt video, as it was filmed in 1991, which was (guess what) 20 years ago. I think I detach the incredibly visual culture we live in now, where a pop song can be greatly enhanced by a good video, from the childhood I experienced where songs existed only on their own. Also I didn’t have cable then which meant no MTV and no BRUCE.

New Yorkers Don’t Stop For Nothing

I love
1. How so many people walk on by without stopping. (This would be me; I always regret it when I stop)
2. How some people have to think about what they’re listening to and appear to lie/want to lie. (Also me)
3. Most of these songs. (Obviously me)

Red Shoes

Louboutin is suing YSL, if you didn’t know, because they claim ownership of the red soled shoe. Over at The Awl, Rachelle Bergstein wrote a brief history of red shoes that nicely sums up why Louboutin should move on and pick a new battle. It also that reminded me of this painting my dad did:

And the song it was named after:
(The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes – Elvis Costello
