Weekend Music and Art


I simply can’t stop listening to this CD by Damien Rice.  The CD is 9.  I bought it for the first song called 9 Crimes that features a stunning duet between Lisa Hannigan and Damien Rice.  Reviewers have said his debut CD is even better, so that’s on my to-be-purchased list.  But this one has a comforting folksy feel– be warned, the frank language gives it explicit lyric labels–for just about every song.  So far, I only think a few of the songs deserved the label, but what do I know?

Thought I’d share one that made me repeat it a few times after the very first listen.  Oh, and give it a chance through the quiet times because the best part of the song is yet to come.  Elephant. (I’m hoping this link is not one of the stealing bandwidth ones– I don’t think it is because the actual site doesn’t pull up… but the song works.  Go figure.)  As far as I can tell, the only reason they could label Elephant explicit is because of the word, horny.

When did that become a “bad” word? 

To go with the song, I’ve picked a couple of stark images from up and coming photographers I plan to follow. 


The photographer is Makuse.  There is an image on this site called The Beach I’d like to see make it into the print section. 🙂  Only 22 years-old and look at this.


Wonderful 19 YEAR-OLD photographer, Dorota Pawilowska.  There are some artistic nudes on her site, but I don’t think you can see them unless you’re signed in as a member.  Her other photographs can be viewed– she’s good.  🙂


About Rinda Elliott

Writer.I love unusual stories and credit growing up in a family of curious life-lovers who moved all over the country. Books and movies full of fantasy, science fiction and romance kept us amused, especially in some of the stranger places. For years, I tried to separate my darker side with my humorous and romantic one. I published short fiction, but things really started happening when I gave in and mixed it up. When not lost in fiction, I love making wine, collecting music, gaming and spending time with my husband and two children. I’m represented by Miriam Kriss of the Irene Goodman Agency.
