Been AFK...
Sorry, been a bit lazy about keeping up; been trying to clean up/organize my place for Spring.

Also, been watching movies such as "Grindhouse" in the theatres, caught most of "Sin City" on TV, and now watching "Bent" (with Clive Owen - and Mick Jagger (!) - still waiting to catch Ian McKellen - oh, yeah - that's him! Good. A damn hard film to follow.) Now that's a strange, sexy, violent, decadent set of movies!

So I'm listening to the radio this morning, and I heard an old song by XTC that made me think of Easter... and of "Stranger in a Strange Land", which somebody on my f-list (was it you, anneheart?) read recently, although they weren't too fond of it. So, today... a bit of lyrics spam:



Peter Pumpkinhead came to town,
Spreading wisdom and cash around;
Fed the starving and housed the poor,
Showed the Vatican what gold's for.

But he made too many enemies
Of the people who would keep us on our knees.
Hooray for Peter Pumpkin!
Who'll pray for Peter Pumpkinhead?

Peter Pumpkinhead pulled them all;
Emptied churches and shopping malls.
Where he spoke, it would raise the roof;
Peter Pumpkinhead told the truth.

But he made too many enemies
Of the people who would keep us on our knees.
Hooray for Peter Pumpkin!
Who'll pray for Peter Pumpkinhead?

Peter Pumpkinhead put to shame
Governments who would slur his name.
Plots and sex scandals failed outright;
Peter merely said, "Any kind of love is alright".

But he made too many enemies
Of the people who would keep us on our knees.
Hooray for Peter Pumpkin!
Who'll pray for Peter Pumpkinhead?

Peter Pumpkinhead was too good;
Had him nailed to a chunk of wood.
He died grinning on live TV.
Hanging there he looked a lot like you,
And an awful lot like me.

But he made too many enemies
Of the people who would keep us on our knees.
Hooray for Peter Pumpkin -
Who'll pray for Peter Pumpkin?
Hooray for Peter Pumpkinhead!

You. are. awesome.
I thought for a moment it was going to be "Easter Theatre". Which is also very good, but this is more applicable today. I do not feel the bud-bursting love as it is too fricking cold.

I am?

Never heard of that one, I'm afraid! And, yes... it's WAY too cold for Easter! Although I have to remind myself that it *was* freezing last year at the beginning of April, because I remember waiting outside Metro to see 30STM (I'd come up to town from Indy to see them). Still, it didn't freeze for *this* long!

Also, I saw a special box of chocolates out (I think it was from Whitman) with... wait for it... ORGANIC chocolates! I thought of you. *S*

I recently wrote a review of it on my lj, so maybe it was me you were thinking of? No, I didn't like it, but those lyrics are very fitting! Happy Easter, Ros. :)

Yep, it was you!!! Must have been the "A's" (and that fact that the other A reads a LOT of books) that confused me - thanks!

Happy Easter!

I saw 'Bent' about a year ago, and cried cried CRIED my eyes out during the last hour of it. It's one of those movies i'd put in the category of 'I loved the film but it was so emotional I will never be able to watch it again'.

And I LOVE that XTC song; haven't heard it since I was in high school!

GRINDHOUSE rocked!
Just an FYI... I tried to view some of your older albums in your profile (older line party ones) and it appears the links don't work anymore :-( *sob*
