Tunesday Preview: Be Good Tanyas–Light Enough To Travel

I’m starting to work back into the daily post thing–is it too cute to reconstitute the weekly music video as Tunesday…?  Seeing as it’s a pretty long stretch to call any business I’m about “cute,” I think I’m going to go for it–starting next week.  Since I already wrote the following introduction for today, we’ll call this a Special Preview.

It was still 4 degrees when I came in from shoveling snow this morning around 9am.  In the past 2 months I’ve had to heft, scrape, push, throw and chisel some sort of wintry substance–it’s been steadily frigid, so things have been consistently lovely, aesthetically speaking, rather than grey and brown and slushy, but I’m ready for the next step: daffodils.  I suppose they’re down there, somewhere, under all that snow, but until I see ’em for myself.

In the meantime, let’s forget the chill for a moment with one of my very favorite songs, “Light Enough To Travel” by the old, long-gone Be-Good Tanyas.  It’s warm enough to melt the ice from our shoulders, at least for a while.

Native, Militant Westsylvanian (the first last best place), laborer, gardener, and literary hobbyist (if by literary you mean "hack"). I've had a bunch of different blogs, probably four, due to a recurring compulsion to start over. This incarnation owes to a desire to dredge up the best entries of the worst little book of hand-scrawled poems I could ever dream of writing, salvageable excerpts from fiction both in progress and long-abandoned. and a smattering of whatever the hell seems to fit at any particular moment. At first blush, I was here just to focus on old, terrible verse, but I reserve the right to include...anything. Maybe everything, certainly my love of pulp novels, growing garlic, the Pittsburgh Steelers and howling at the moon--both figuratively and, on rare occasions, literally.
