I meant to mention, when I doodled this for [livejournal.com profile] tikistitch the other day, I was listening to the following from Crowded House's newest album...kinda reminded me of those two...



(There were a bunch of videos with concert footage, but damn if I can't stand that pornstache Neil had - thank gods he shaved it off halfway through the tour...)

Elephants

It's the closing hour
I don't want to go
But I could stay afloat
In your eyes

I've seen the rocks
Where everyone gets lost
I won't stray across
The white line

Let's admit the world don't turn around us
It's acting like we don't exist
A drunk that's sleeping in the corner
Sweet dreams, make waves, find bliss

When elephants come down
To the water hole at dusk
They feel the same as us about life
We all take a drink
The sun begins to sink
The alligator waits for his time

Let's admit the world don't turn around us
It's acting like we don't exist
A drunk that's sleeping in the corner
Sweet dreams, make waves, find bliss

You don't have to say a word
You don't have to say a word
I hear what you're thinking
You don't have to say a word
You don't have to say a word
I know what you're thinking

I know there's no use
So lost and discontent
I'm looking for a friend I can trust
For all my intent
It hasn't happened yet
So now I come to you for insight

Let's admit the world don't care about us
It's acting like we don't exist
Drunk and sleeping in the corner
Sweet dreams, make waves, find bliss
Sweet dreams, make waves, find bliss

Wait, CROWDED HOUSE HAS A NEW ALBUM?? :D

Exactly how long ago did I fall off the edge of the world? *sighs deeply*

Came out last June. Don't feel bad, I didn't get myself until a month or two ago - and I probably only know because I'm on a fan mailing list. They don't get a lot of airplay here in the US anymore, sadly enough...

Check out "Either Side of the World" - I think GAnesh would like it. XD

Is that like the world's happiest video? :D

I need to check out this CD.... I'm starting to write some bits happening in Australia, so this will be cool.

They actually had a contest for people to send in their own videos of themselves dancing to put in it. And it kills me that they used some of the same B&W footage of women dancing that Adult Swim used for their bumps. :D

I can try uploading for you if you like; happy to share...

I'll give it a try once I get home; stuck in a defensive driver course right now, and my phone is incapable of even seeing your delightful dancing Snape icon properly.

I bought their little concert thumb drive and I find I' m really missing the liner notes and artwork so I'll probably eventually buy the CD myself (so I justify it to myself). ;p

No worries, State workers have to have a refresher every 3-4 years if we drive a state vehicle.

It's so weird; it's the same old guy who actually lives in Costa Rica, but contracts to come up here and teach a bunch of 4 hour classes. I think he's been the same one to teach it the last three or four times I've had to take it.

At least he redid his note posters this time. Last time they were all grimy and worn, with fingerprints around the edges.

I just now noticed in this thing that Neil is paraphrasing a line from a Monty Python movie at the beginning... ;p

And check your email...
