I Shall Rise Up Singing

This one’s for Kitty, who just texted me from the Throbbing Gristle concert. Hamburger Lady, it said, but I know she’d much rather be listening to Sia, who has such a big voice coming out of the chest of such a little Aussie girl. She’s a more reachable model for my morning of song; that glorious day when I shall rise up singing; Nina Simone as a white girl, lanky but with soulful hips.

I may never be Nina, but possibly Sia. It could happen, y’know:

And sometimes I’m Hamburger Lady, but mostly just NOT.

    It was like 1984 but everyone was way older but still wearing the same black clothes… i broke a Xanax in half in the bathroom, swallowed some water out of the sink, put in my earplugs and went in.
    Genesis wore red pokka dot tights and a pink mu- mu and introduced his daughter on stage- who lives in Berkeley.

    It is important to take care to look after your hearing, I in reality like taking care hearing and whilst I do agree with the above-mentioned poster and I really hope I do not get shot down for stating this, but I believe it is essential to take all things in moderation.
