I still have no Tori album because my local independent store didn't get any special editions in and David convinced me to have integrity and wait instead of going to one of the big box stores. *grumble grumble grumble* This is fine because instead we got the new Bright Eyes which we played in the car this morning on the way to work and I am still so shaken up by hearing the first few songs I feel I might weep at anything. He is working with themes that I'm also working with on the album I'm writing right now, and it's interesting to hear them voiced in this manner.
The songs are forming underneath the ice. I can feel them moving into shapes, re-arranging, sliding, becoming still...waiting. Soon the ice will melt, and I will go into the deep. I promise to record what I find there.
