Too much, too bright, too powerful

Appliances have gone berserk
I cannot keep up
Treading on people's toes
Snot-nosed little fools

And I can't face the evening straight
And you can offer me escape
Houses live and houses speak
If you take me there you'll get relief
Believe, relief, believe

(Thom Yorke solo acoustic - Last Flowers Till the Hospital)

From an old version of radiohead.com: "last flowers till the hospital is a sign discovered in oxford -my unhealthy obsession with these institutions. analysts may get the connection. ambulances scream past my house at all hours of the day and night like the confessionals of Larkin's Ambulances."

give it, give it, give it, give it, give it Until you just can't give no more

So you're wishing that you never did
All the embarrasing things you've done
And you're wishing you could set it right
And you're wishing you could stay tonight

(Yeasayer - Tightrope)

no to protection

"When i was a girl, my life was music that was always getting louder. Everything moved me. A dog followed a stranger. That made me feel so much. A calendar that showed the wrong month. I could have cried over it. I did. Where the smoke from a chimney ended. How an overturned bottle rested at the edge of a table.
I spent my life learning to feel less.
Everyday i felt less.
Is that growing old? Or is it something worse?
You cannot protect yourself from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness".

(tot Jonathan Foer, pentru ca e cel mai tare)

if you fall asleep in the snow, you don't feel death coming

nu stiu cum si de ce abia acum, dar mi-am dat seama subit ca filmuletul asta nu poate sa lipseasca de aici..

Paris Je t'aime/Faubourg Saint-Denis (Tom Tykwer)

"There are times when life calls out for a change. A transition. Like the seasons. Our spring was wonderful, but summer is over now and we missed out on autumn. And now all of a sudden, it's cold, so cold that everything is freezing over. Our love fell asleep, and the snow took it by surprise. But if you fall asleep in the snow, you don't feel death coming. Take care"

there's such a chill

Vampire Weekend - Exit Music (For A Film)


Radiohead - Exit Music (For a Film)

Wake... from your sleep
The drying of your tears
Today.. we escape
We escape.

Pack and get dressed
Before your father hears us
Before.. all hell.. breaks loose.

Breathe... keep breathing
Don't lose.. your nerve.
Breathe... keep breathing
I can't do this.. alone.

Sing us a song
A song to keep us warm
There's such a chill
Such a CHILL.

You can laugh
A spineless laugh
We hope your rules and wisdom choke you
Now we are one
In everlasting peace

We hope that you choke.. that you choke
We hope that you choke.. that you choke
We hope that you choke.. that you choke

maine, la pranz

"M-am hotarat sa stau in pat pana la pranz. Poate pana atunci o sa moara jumatate din lume si o sa fie doar pe jumatate de greu s-o infrunt. Poate daca ma scol la pranz, o sa arat mai bine, o sa ma simt mai bine".

Charles Bukowsky, "De duzina"
