Yeasayer - Madder Red

I don't even know what to say about this. But I won't deny it brought a tear to my eye.

I can feel it comin' in the air tonight...

...Oh Lord, and I've been waiting for this moment for all my liiiiffeee....
Or maybe the past year or so. Thank you Phil Collins for getting me out of my rut and into the groove tonight.

I fist-pumped in a triumphant glory dance for everyone at the bus stop down below to see. They dug it.

Hairy Hijabs

I've recently moved to Dearborn, specifically East Dearborn, a city known for having the largest concentration of Middle Eastern cultures this side of the Atlantic. I'm finding myself mesmerized by the way the women sashay down the sidewalks in their burqas and hijabs on ninety degree days, a bag of groceries on one hip, a kid on the other. There's something about them that is so mysterious. Feminine. Secretive. Strong. Especially compared to the silly white chicks sitting at the bus stops, flicking cigarette ashes on their short shorts and halter tops.

I wonder if they remember to take the batteries out of smoke detectors when they abandon a building...

So the beep beep beeping of my drained little smoke detectors (four, count them four) on some subliminal level probably evoked this building sense of urgency. Like a timer ticking.

A lot of my habits were broken in May.

This was not one of them.

Inspired by every knock-kneed drunk bitch in platform stiletto heels.

The new studio space should be set up by the end of the month. Expect some finished works this fall.
