Challenge

I dare you

To take me on

I dare you

To show me your palms

What’s so scary?

Not a threat in sight!

You just can’t handle

You can’t handle love.

I’ll be yours

I will weave for you

A marvelous web

Glow-in-the-dark threads

All Neon Like

Love stories that are intertwined like woolen threads inspire me.

To and fro the Heart

One day I found a big book buried deep in the ground. I opened it, but all the pages were blank. Then, to my surprise, it started writing itself:

I am a tree that grows hearts
One for each that you take
You’re the intruder’s hand
I’m the branch that you break

Manual

Look no further.

One of the key factors for musical act to win my liking is his or her ability to write lyrics that speak to me.

Even though I haven’t been very keen on Björk latest albums, I still resort to her when looking for solace and/or inspiration.

We’re cruelest almost always to ourselves.

The live performance is so nicely upbeat as well:

Aren’t we trying too hard?

Hearts

The circumstances surrounding my life at the moment made me recall a scene from this video:

I can’t get it off of my mind.

Let it speak to you as well.

Oneiric

This semester has been a very good one when it comes to long weekends in Brazil. Next Monday we’ll have another holiday, which means 3 days off in a row. So, in preparation for the weekend here are some inspiring images of all kinds:

Let us all hopefully have a weekend full of hopes and accomplished dreams.

Lucky us

This is one of those weeks when I feel I need an extra push to get through to the weekend (yet another busy one, I can foresee).

So expectations play an important part in my selection of musical solace for today. What I mean is, my real favorite artists – the ones who speak right to my heart – are supposed to release new records in the near future. The list:

1. PJ Harvey. Her new album will be released sometime in 2011 along with fresh new concerts in European capitals.

2. Fiona Apple. Some of the new material has leaked onto Youtube and the like, along with rumors that a new record will see the light of day in the next Spring.

3. Ladyhawke. The Kiwi singer with the smartest keyboards on the planet is working on new material to be released very very soon.

4. Björk. The long hiatus will see an end as her much worked on new music is put out hopefully sometime next year. It hurts me to say it, but I do hope it will leave up to my expectations after the mostly disappointing Volta.

5. Lykke Li. Her sweet voice and heartfelt songs will fill our dreams as she releases her new album in the near future. Meanwhile, she has come out with a single that is both mischievous and down-to-the-bones honest, Get Some:

How redundant is it to say that I cannot wait to get all of these?

PS: Yes, I love female singers.
