I just uploaded a bunch of the most recent episodes to podomatic if you feel like grabbin’ them through itunes.. so you don’t miss out or forget about me..
(and, well, because i cannot sleep due to the disorganized stressed-out hell of moving, on top of the unendingly heavy toll of beyond-broken-hearted blues.)
also.. the loss this week of the lovely and legendary Letha Rodman Melchior only adds to the weight. listen to a haunting track from her upcoming (now sadly posthumous) new record Shimmering Ghosthere. thank you so much for your spirit, Letha.. now you are free.

Cat Power - “Where Is My Love?” ::: Here’s the new video for Cat Power’s “Where Is My Love?” off of The Greatest, but you knew that already, didn’t you? The video was directed by Anne-Laure Keib, who toured with Chan way back around Moon Pix.
“The song is on one level very plain and literal, about a letter I wrote for someone I loved and could not get along with,” she says. On a more subconscious, poetic level, it is a letter to myself, as aspiration to love better.”
"i pulled my heart out on a mountain high, i left it in the sun but it would not die.."
