Radiohead -- Street Spirit (Fade out)

I love, L.O.V.E., LoVe, lOvE Radiohead.

I really love this video -- the black and white, light and dark,  fast and slow, fade in and fade out.

I also think it has something to do with my nostalgia for Airstream trailers. I was living in my own little aluminum love can when Jason and I started seeing each other. People get real close, real quick when there is only 1/8" of aluminum separating you from the person using the pisser. If you can handle that, you know it's love...or at least we did.

I love the person jumping at the 3:52 mark.


"Street Spirit (Fade Out)"
Rows of houses, all bearing down on me
I can feel their blue hands touching me
All these things into position
All these things we'll one day swallow whole
And fade out again and fade out

This machine will, will not communicate
These thoughts and the strain I am under
Be a world child, form a circle
Before we all go under
And fade out again and fade out again

Cracked eggs, dead birds
Scream as they fight for life
I can feel death, can see its beady eyes
All these things into position
All these things we'll one day swallow whole
And fade out again and fade out again

Immerse your soul in love
IMMERSE YOUR SOUL IN LOVE

PS. It hasn't stopped raining in about a year here so that's why so many posts are on videos and books. Hopefully more exterior posts coming soon -- hell, we were putting in the garden this time last year and now it's just a huge mud puddle!

Please send sun if you have extra!
