CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION isn't my favorite, but

Lauren: Hey. Um. This is kind of weird -- but do you ever wonder how many times your life is gonna end?

Schultz: Uh... I'm not sure I know what / you...

Lauren: Like how many people you're... like how many times your life is gonna totally change and then, like, start all over again? And you'll feel like what happened before wasn't real and what's happening now is actually...

Schultz: Uh... I don't know.  I guess I feel like my life is pretty real.


(There was a time when I thought it would be a good idea to remix scenes with lyrics or bits of songs and I bet you can guess what song would go in this one.)
zinze: (chicken!)
I've done a lot of music that's still relevant, but not as much the stuff that's actually current and directly in response.
It's interesting how things seem to get folkier when it comes to immediate responses to current events, or at least the ones that cross my path.  There's something to be said for a good, old-fashioned protest song.

John Craigie, "The Silver Lining of Trump as President"
Iris DeMent, "We Won't Keep Quiet"
Jill Sobule, "Our America Back"
Greg Brown, "Trump Can't Have That"
[Future-Zan acknowledges this huge oversight: Jenny Owen Youngs, "Prophecy Girl"] (yes, it's from Buffering the Vampire Slayer, but you've all seen Buffy and even if you haven't there aren't spoilers.)


(To be fair to other genres, Green Day, "Troubled Times"
Fiona Apple, "Tiny Hands")

(And, in honor of my therapist, I'm gonna take a moment to recognize that even since my most recent bout of political nausea, a few good things have happened. Of course, the fact that these things are set up in the first place is... well.  The fight is long.  But it is being fought.)  (The thing is, every time a good thing happens, a worse thing happens.)I'm trying. I am. )
