If you want to hear the album version and/or lyrics her you go: http://www.songstube.net/video.php?title=Big%20Brown%20Eyes&artistid=11160&artist=Old%2097’s&id=38452

But GO SEE THE OLD 97’s LIVE ASAP! They are touring for their new album “Most Messed Up” worldwide NOW (http://old97s.com/shows/). Their live shows will change your life.

So the new movie “Wish I Was Here” has given me all kinds of issues (yeah) since the Old 97’s politely wrote the movie title for Zach in 2010. And yes, this song would make no sense in his movie. As he explains in Rolling Stone he asked his favorite artists to watch the movie and write a song for it (he had good reasons): http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/zach-braff-breaks-down-wish-i-was-here-soundtrack-song-by-song-20140709

And also see the nice movie “Wish I Was Here” about being grown up, not having the life you thought you would and (I assume, it isn’t out yet) and the kids are older, you’re parents start to get older and more ill than is ok or what you are ready for — which is just phase 2 of growing up. This duet by Coldplay/Chris Martin and Cat Powers is lovely and perfect. But the man has had exceptional taste for a long time. Listen to “Wish I Was Here” now: http://youtu.be/PH6CD8evPso

Something Good, Elaine Stritch

Beautiful.

Elaine once said that she didn’t fear death because things would be amazing afterward. Well, unless there was nothing. But “nothing comes from nothing, nothing ever could” so it would work out no matter what, because “somewhere in my youth or childhood I must have had a moment of good”.

I’m paraphrasing her wonderful discussion of life, death and all that could come after. But she directly cited this song for all of her “nothing comes after” theory. If you know when this comes from, let me know or comment. Thank you!

My favorite (so far…). The video at the top of the article (25ish min) is wonderful. Make sure to listen to 8:00 to 10:00 ish for her mother, Noel Coward and Christmas cards. Elaine doesn’t lie (as a way to cover things up, but she may ENHANCE something) she was a broad, and there is no higher compliment.

Because everyone loves Craig Owens. From Doctor Who 6 -12: Closing Time
A big episode. Stormageddon, Dark Lord of All decides he is proud to be Alfie Owens because his dad is so brave. We also hear his first word but, spoilers …

The Doctor to Craig: “You destroyed them because of the deeply ingrained hereditary human trait to protect one’s own genes, which in turn triggered a, a… Yeah, love. You blew them up with love.”
