fan-made video for the seventh song off the dresden dolls 2003 debut. the duo was/is made up of drummer brian viglione and singer/keyboardist amanda palmer. viglione is incredible on drums. seriously, listen to him
and i love amanda palmer. one time in july 2008, before she dropped her solo album, i brought my dad to see her perform. after her set, she went into an open hall to the right of the stage. the upstairs of the venue was small and i’m pretty sure it didn’t have anything to function as a green room. my dad had taken a seat in a chair against the right wall and he apparently saw her shirtless. lol
anyway, “gravity” is also an interesting song. you can read the lyrics below:
Gravity plays favorites, I know it cause I saw Honest to god officer it’s awful (awful) Down at work, I’m getting too familiar with the floor Trading in my talents by the mouthful
Hate to break it to you, but it’s out of my control, Forces go to work while we are sleeping (sleeping) If I could attack with a more sensible approach Obviously that’s what I’d be doing (right!?) Someone tell her, Someone get her off!
Now! Necks are cracking sideways, Hit me from the back side I am on the white side, You are on the black side Cut a piece that’s bite size, Shoot me from my good side If you got a straight line, This would be a good time
Gravity works slowly if you notice it at all, Some of us are getting mighty lucky (aren’t we?) If you had to live with this, you’d rather lie than fall, You think I can’t fly? Well you just watch me! Watch me!
Someone tell her, Someone get her off!
You can do it Good girl (recites ABCs) Right foot Left foot That’s just the way we showed you Back in the car! Can’t put on the seat belt! Posture, Oh oh oh Posture, Oh oh- Look I think she’s going now Oh my god I’m gonna see if she’s moving ok?
I think we’ve lost her!
Now! Necks are cracking sideways, Hit me from the back side I am on the thin side, You are on the fat side Cut a piece that’s bite size, Shoot me from my bad side If you want a straight line, This would be a good time
The sky is always falling down on me, The sky is always falling, falling The sky is always falling down on me, So officer, forgive me, please!
Kanye West, at about 12 years old, reads a poem titled “His Name Means Love.” The stanza he recites is dedicated to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This footage was provided by a former classmate of West’s at Chicago’s Vanderpoel Elementary School
A single, long exposure captured these star trails above a remarkably colorful sea of clouds. As seen from Medvednica mountain, the surrounding peaks and lights illuminating the clouds from below are north of Zagreb, Croatia. Near the center of the also colorful star trail arcs, the North Celestial Pole is off the upper right edge of the frame. Even though this is the age of the digital camera, the well composed skyscape was recorded using color slide film in a medium format camera. The dreamlike scene’s starry sky and ephemeral ocean could be reminiscent of an older age still, when the Pannonian Sea covered this part of central Europe some 10 million years ago.
