It creeps around me all the time, this restless feelin' on my mind. Confusin' and abusin' me, so I won't turn around to see.

Accepting their award, Marketa said, "The fact that we're standing here tonight, the fact that we're able to hold this, it's just to prove no matter how far out your dreams are, it's possible. And fair play to those who dare to dream and don't give up. This song was written from a perspective of hope, and hope at the end of the day connects us all, no matter how different we are."

Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova - "Falling Slowly"

I should have something quite profound to say at this point, but all I can think about is, "What if i come back from a shitty day at work (like today) and just wanna listen to The Stones Roses (like today), fairly loudly....?"

My van smells of old people's feet. Not that I know what old people's feet smells like, but I'd imagine it's pretty close. I am neither old, nor do I have smelly feet. It's a mystery. I'm never gonna sell my house in time now. Of all the times I could have done it, I pick a fucking housing recession. I have bills coming out of my ears and no money to fight them off with. I have two more fence panels to repair, thanks to the recent winds. Hey thanks winds!

But we all hope.

Indeed we do. Hope that is.

And so doodle on and on the live long day, don't we?

Do you write songs, bedshaped? Just a hunch that you do...or maybe I read it here somewhere.

love love love that Glen and Marketa tune. Guess I'm not alone there.

Keep hold of that hope. People will still buy houses, they will just be willing to pay a bit less. And this won't be forever.

fern,
Doodle on, yeah.
I've never written a song in my life. I'm presuming you mean lyrically. I don't think you've read it anywhere on here before. I do drop the occasional post that is neither lyrics or poetry. Just thinking words, yano.
If you haven't already seen it, I'd recomend watching "Once".

cat,
True. It's just that time is against me at the moment. It's not the end of the world, it's just frustrating to be stuck at such a huge hurdle.

Fern said...

Yes, bedshaped, I've seen Once...more than once.
and will again I'm sure.

and I think you ought to write some lyrics..yano.I've got a good feeling about it.
