This week I was faced with the choice between making a buck for the company and creating a second mixed CD for lovely M.
Being the good corporate citizen that I am I naturally chose for the latter.

It is titled: Sander’s marvelous, mellow, melancholic, midnight mix.

I did OK, because mellifluous M loved it.

How can one not like a girl who shares your passion for Quentin Tarantino movies, Jennifer Aniston and the RAH band ?

Love M.

Hope you like this eclectic mix.

1. Nada Surf, Inside of love

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Tdl-t7Cz0E

2. EW & F, That’s the way of the world.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDhCtwr6W2U

3. Nina Simone, Here comes the sun

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LSSIlx9hiu8

4. Carpathian Ridge

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_hjI916eRk

5. Echo and the Bunnymen, Bring on the dancing horses

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GaWs79v0ugE

6. The RAH band, Clouds across the moon

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mHGkTP3G7Z8&feature=related

7. Primitive radio gods, Standing outside a broken phone booth without money in my hand.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0LKVZ4NTfUc

8. Vangelis, Blade Runner Love Theme.

Love that movie…. Ah, Sean Young smoking and saying: “Do you like our owl?”....she’s so very lickable. (Sean, not the owl)
It’s too bad she won’t live, but then again, who does ?

9. U2, one

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JFWPeVfWB9o


10. Donnie Darko, Mad world

The last one is a real winner juxtaposing some truly dark lyrics with some happy music. Your girl will be impressed. These are can’t miss songs. You’ll thank me later Sander.

There is a great quote about beauty, poetry and metaphysics by jacques Maritain. He says that when people cry when they hear a beautiful poem or beautiful music or see a a beautiful work of art,  they do so out of melancholy not out of an over abundance of joy. For the person has experienced a glimpse of the eternal, and at the same time they experience the transcendant they realize that the beauty is temporary and fleeting. They want to hold onto that beauty but they know they cannot; therefore the melancholic tears. So when you are crying while listeng to the Silver Jews, know that you are doing so because you are sad that you are not in heaven.


PS I don’t know if any of the links work because there is no access to youtube at my school.

Thank you for that Frank.
Monsieur Jacques is very right.

I remember being very young and seeing a beautiful girl.
I was too young to understand why I felt sad seeing her but later I realized it was because, as Nick Cave croons in “Where the wild roses grow”, all beauty must die.

There isn’t really a way to sugarcoat our circumstance and nature’s green is indeed gold, but as I grew older and took up drawing I found myself more and more fascinated by older people. Get ready for a terrible cliché. Their faces are so much more interesting. And so are their stories.

I am 44 now and, although I am still devastatingly handsome, moisture inducing attractive, nipple-hardening, ruggedly sexy and thigh-weakening, moaning…....sorry, lost my train of thought here.

Right, I am not as young anymore and my Alain Delon good looks are starting to fade at the edges, but I like this age and what it brings and I think I will like 50 and 60 too, that is, if I don’t die, God forbid.

Melancholy is for the young Frank and I am almost done with it.

I play Christina the Astonishing over and over for my students. They cringe but by years end they all sing along. Not Nick Cave’s finest but tells a a wacky saint story and the lyrics are lifted right out of the Lives of the Saints.

I finally watched Donnie Darko. Frank is both lagomorphic and non-melancholy. Go figure.

Damn you Frank. This is not fair.
How am I supposed to fire vicious posts at you now that I know that you are a Nick Cave fan?

That is a dirty trick.

I hope you aren’t leporiphobic or it will have been a frightening experience.

What did you think?

You, being a logophile, surely will have an opinion on ‘cellar door’ .

Sometimes I doubt your commitment to the Sam Harris forum.

No, it is a picture of a character in Donnie Darko.

Well, she’s lovely and exotic, as I picture M.  I didn’t see Donnie Darko so please don’t be insulted if that actress portrays someone horrible.

Probably wouldn’t be a good idea to post M here, for her own ptivacy, now that I think about it.  I mean, I can post myself in my avatar because I’m prepared to handle any of you sickos with one hand behind my back.  M is an innocent

Yup, it’s all my “art”.  The previous one was an Inchie (1 inch square) but I was fiddling with the avatar and somehow it got out of whack (elongated).  This one is collage with tissue paper, colored pencils, a vintage image, and some vintage French writing down the side that says “Carte Postale”.  ATC size (2.5 x 3.5 inches).

You mean I didn’t convince you that nude was me???  Pout.

I envy your talent, M! I am not optimistic enough to think that you would be posting any nudes of yourself.  wink 

Not to disrespect your privacy, but do you have a gallery link? I understand if you prefer not to post that.
